 Skin Care 
  • A daily routine is necessary for clean, healthy, and glowing skin.
  • My preferred method is the oil cleansing method-either with a purchased facial oil, Badger Face cleansing oil or a homemade version-using oils and steam to open and cleanse the pores.
  • Very simple, natural, and effective - I don't invest in expensive and time consuming skin regimens. More time for other things!

Hair Care 
  • Washing every 2-3 days to maintain natural oils. Also, good for after you've set your hair - no reason to undo all that effort so soon!
  • Use a(n) SLS-free shampoo - to cleanse without stripping hair.
  • At least once a week include a hair masque, such as Shea Moisture Deep Treatment Masque, for deep conditioning to keep hair soft and manageable as well as reducing buildup of product.

Aesthetics
  • Daily/weekly cuticle maintenance keeps nails in shape reducing the need for extensive manicures.
  • Can be done by simply pushing back cuticles when softened from bathing or hand washing, as remembered.
  • Shaping and filing, perhaps before bed or during free time, extends the manicure.
  • Eyebrow grooming is important as eyebrows frame the face. 
  • Make sure to keep them neat and shaped using one of the methods: tweezing, waxing, or threading. 
  • Tweeze stray hairs as necessary between visits.
Using these tips/suggestions will help keep you in tip top shape! I hope this review was helpful. Any questions or comments? Please feel free to share below!
