A few weeks ago, a small group of us gathered inside the Harbinger offices for an intimate one-on-one session with celebrity make-up artist Gita Bass. She flew all the way from NYC to give us the 4-1-1 on Simple skincare, as well as give us all the goods on how to achieve and maintain beautiful and healthy skin. Being someone that has severely sensitive skin, I’m always willing to hear how I can better take care of my skin, and I this was my opportunity to ask all my questions (i.e. Is it okay that I use scrub everyday? Is it okay that I put on a mask twice, sometimes three times a week? Do I really need to use an eye cream etc.) The answers to my questions? In her exact words, “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” She said it was totally fine that I scrub everyday, and use a mask several times a week, and no I don’t need to use eye cream, however as I get older I’ll probably want to…. Hmmm I may have to think about this one.
As I said before, I have very sensitive skin, and this means that I don’t just put anything on my face; so I had a number of questions for Gita regarding the Simple skincare line. I swear by black soap and raw shea butter, as that’s as pure as it gets, but sometimes I don’t have time to re-up, so it’s good to know that there is a skincare line out there, that’s gentle enough for sensitive skin, but it’s also free of dyes, artificial perfumes, and chemicals, and is instead rich with vitamins and “skin loving” ingredients. I’ve used a few of the products that we got to take home a few times, and so far, so good!
Gita’s skin care tips?
- Find what works for YOU.
- Lead a healthy lifestyle, drink LOTS of water, eat LOTS of fresh vegetables and fruits, JUICE, EXERCISE.
- ALWAYS use sunscreen (I admit I get lazy with this one…)
- Always wash your make up off before going to bed… ALWAYS.
- Healthy mind + Healthy body= Beautiful and healthy skin.
Goodies! My faves so far are the smoothing facial scrub (naturally), the foaming cleanser and the protecting light moisturizer.
After we talked everything Simple Skincare, Gita gave us some makeup tips, while we sipped on a number of DELICIOUS Belmonte raw juices, and nibbled on light healthy snacks 🙂
Thank you so much for inviting us, and to Gita for sharing some valuable skin care tips with us!
