What is Thalassotherapy?

Thalassotherapy is a spa treatment that utilizes warm salt water and sea products to allow the skin to absorb trace minerals such as iodine, zinc, potassium and magnesium. 

It also increases blood and lymphatic circulation, boosts the immune system, reduces inflammation, detoxifies, and is antibacterial.
The word Thalassotherapy comes from the Greek words Thalassa, which means sea, and Therapeia, which means healing.

This ancient healing treatment includes hydrotherapy which includes soaking in sea water, applying sea water to the body, or soaking in a seaweed bath.

It also includes Algotherapy which is the application of algae and sea products to the body in the form of seaweed and mud wraps or masks. 

Sand exfoliating treatments are also a included  as Thalassotherapy.

Thalassotherapy is often used as a cellulite treatment because it is excellent for the elimination of toxins. Seaweed wraps are known for their anti cellulite properties. Apply sea mud to areas that have cellulite, wrap yourself with plastic wrap and let the seaweed do it's magic!

You can also experience Thalassotherapy at home by adding 2 cups of sea salt to a warm bathtub. You can also use seaweed powder in your warm bath. It is packed full of sea minerals to nourish and detoxify. Relax, soak for 20 minutes and be rejuvenated!

The best form of Thalassotherapy for me is a trip to Jamaica. Just let me float in the warm Caribbean Sea!

White Bumps Under Eyes: Milia

Have you noticed that you have little white looking bumps under your eyes? Some people call it chicken skin because the bumps look like plucked chicken skin. 🐔 Most likely those little white bumps are milia. They can feel hard or pearly. These bumps are not acne. Milia can occur when dead skin cells become trapped beneath the outer layer of skin. Keratin becomes trapped and builds up. A small benign cyst can form which is the milia. It's a cyst!?! Don't let that word scare you. They are harmless, but unwanted bumps.  They can occur on any area of the skin that tends to be on the dry side. They cannot be squeezed out like a blackhead or pimple because they have no opening. A layer of skin covers them. A hole must be created in them using a needle, then they can be extracted out.

Why does my lipstick change color on my lips?

So, you found a gorgeous shade of peachy nude lipstick.... right on trend. It looks amazing in the lipstick tube but when you put it on, it turns orange within 15 minutes!  It happens to me all the time. Pigments in the lipstick react with the chemistry of the skin and change color. This color shift is due to the pH of the skin. Our skin has an acidic pH of 4.5 to 5.5. It varies slightly from person to person which is why lipstick changes on some people and not others.  The oil, sweat and bacteria on our skin create a protective layer called the acid mantle with its pH of 4.5 to 5.5. The acid mantle can change due to how we treat our skin.  The skin pH can change due to the environment.  The sun, as well as pollution, can affect skin's pH.  What we eat can affect the pH of our skin.  Sweating and cosmetic products can also change pH.  The skin will always try to get back to 4.5-5.5 no matter how we abuse it.  Use gentle pH balanced skin care products, eat a healthy diet w


This post is all about dermatofibromas and some remedies to help make them look better and ways hide them. It includes my Amazon Affiliate Links to help you find the products I talk about. Q. I have this brown bump on my leg that won't go away. What can I do about it? A. It could be a dermatofibroma. I see them often on my leg waxing clients. A dermatofibroma is a tan to brown benign raised bump more common in women than men and occur commonly on the legs. The bump feels hard under the skin and can be itchy, tender and easily irritated. A doctor will tell you not to worry about it because it's benign, but it's kind of ugly! Dermatofibromas are also called Benign Fibrous Histiocytomas. They are the result of some sort of injury to the skin such as an ingrown hair or a bug bite.  Be careful when shaving because a dermatofibroma may bleed and become sore if nicked. Don't think you can get rid of it by shaving it off. It will be an awful looking sore and will j
