Did you say stretch marks???

stretchmarklady

Here’s the thing: if you are a woman, you will get stretch marks sooner or later…whether you have kids or not. That’s my personal opinion because I haven’t met one woman without tiny lil stretch marks… I recently discovered that stretch marks are not caused by gaining weight; rather they are caused by HORMONES. The weight gain affects the hormones in your body, so weight gain is a factor insofar as its changing hormones, but it isn’t ‘stretching’ the skin. The hormonal changes that occur as a function of gaining weight are the cause. Check http://www.stretchmarks.org/if you wanna learn more about this “phenomenon”. So to make a long story short, I want to share with you a product that has been considerably helping me “get rid of” lessen my stretch marks. I have been using it daily for over 2 months now and already emptied 2 tubes after a friend recommended it…and MIRACLE: it is actually working! (It’s time for me to get money from all this publicity to all these luxury brands don’t you think??!!??) But hey, anyway…so the product is CLARINS STRETCH MARK CONTROL.

Now I cannot tell you if it is better than the so famous Stri-Vectin since I haven’t tried that one…but at least it is way cheaper ($49 vs. $135). However, I still think that the price is a lil bit pricey given that the tube is small…but hey… A “MASTER CARD” commercial would say: “Price of a clarins tube $49, price of stri vectin $135 and … getting rid of your stretch marks: PRICELESS…” Is that corny?? Lol… Yes indeed that was…  I better go to bed now and avoid writing posts when I am that uninspired…I just really wanted to share this product with you divas as I just got the last drop of my tube…

stinky armpits anyone??? hummm…

Divas, are you as obsessed as I am with your underarms? Well I am one of these people who will have VERY stinky underarms if I go one day without wearing deodorant! I am not ashamed of it! (smile) It is what it is. ..No disrespect to my girl Tyra on this picture…I love her but she should know better…

I found out that using the best deodorant does not guarantee you will not spread the funk by the end of the day or while sweating at the club on a saturday night…

My mom actually gave me my first remedy: rub a fresh lemon under your underarms at least twice a week in the shower and dab some baking soda on top of it. The lemon will considerably reduce the sweat and the darkness of your underarms.

My second tip is to use PHILOSOPHY sweet coconut milk scrub on your armpits. I have been crazy about scrubs lately…I discovered this product 3 weeks ago and I am already in love with it!!! The gentle glycerin base of this tropical scrub will leave your underarm skin feeling soft…I still prefer my Bath and Body works Tranquil Mint scrub for the rest of my body though…

My third tip: make sure that you use a good deodorant or antiperspirant.  The two are very different, the first one neutralizes the smell of the sweat as the antiseptic fights bacteria and the latter blocks pores with powerful astringents (aluminum salts mostly) to prevent sweat production. I usually use deodorant as I have read that aluminium can be bad in the long run…My favorites are DEGREE deodorants but nothing can beat my USHUAIA deodorant in “pulpe de Coco des iles sous le vent” …too bad you can only get this brand in Europe or Africa…

And last but definately not least, it’s common sense that you need to get rid of your underarm hair…I found that the quickest way (which also prevents next day black stubly hair return) is to useVEET depilatory cream. Anyone who knows me or my sisters knows we have to have our VEET! I’ve been using it for yeeears and have nay a complaint. At the moment, I really like VEET in shower Hair removal Cream. If you are like me, often pressed for time, being able to use VEET in the shower is brilliant! As opposed to sitting on the side of the tub…waiting…rinsing…and then getting in the shower…This depilatory cream is gentle enough for my underams and strong enough for my thicker leg hair…(I will have to show you my before and after legs using it in my next post…lol!!!)

So divas, next time you go clubbing, make sure your underarms are smooth, well-scrubed and pleasatn smelling!! A diva has got to stay fresh…
