Bean Skin Story

How important is skincare to you? Did you ever have any teenage skin problem’s? Do you suffer from adult skin concerns. Or a more serious skin disease. Here is why I should have spent 12 years to become a dermatologist or went to cosmetology school for aesthetics.

I started Beanstyled.com a blog on Google’s blogger.com in 2008 when I graduated College with a Bachelor of Art’s degree in Criminology/Sociology. I was going though a time of depression an learning about my own anxiety dealing with a twenty-something life crisis. Typical college grad with student loans who was promised great jobs and good salaries in a time none were to be found. Okay, not much as changed in our economy. Looking back esthetician licenses would have been a great career that pays well if your good at being independent. Which I am great at making sales and booking clients. Then if I had really been passionate contine to college to become the Dr. Now I haven’t loss my passion for skin. It’s only grown. So maybe one day I’ll go back to school but, two kids at home and business to grow. I am actually doing okay on this influencer level and being a guru. I’ve seen info spread by even licensed esthetician that dermatologist would not agree on. So in my opinion if you have major skin concerns ask the Dr. Of skincare. Not a professional esthetician who really is about pampering and detoxing services. Anything with needles or sharp objects. I would always do myself in a med spa under Dermatology supervision. With all the background about my knowledge in the education and safety of skincare. Let me begin my story how I come to find how taking care of my skin also has taken care of my mind as well.

90S Bath Must Had’s!

I had a diary since kindergarten I recieved as a gift. In middle school I recieved anothe. From my grandmother. When I graduated with my Associates degree I recieved another. All from different relatives. I started blogging and realized writing had always been a stress reliever for myself. A way to get out my emotions at a time when I had no one who would understand or listen. This also helped me get through post-partum depression. So that is why B.E.A.N. Styled Studio began. A way to share my love of beauty while releasing stress. It has continued to grow into a Lifestyle method. Including Workout Plans based off years of group fitness classes.

90S Bath and Body Works

What leads this to skincare is that beauty is also something I had always done as a young child to relax. Between the Barbie an champange bubble bath, oil beads, making my own skincare, doing makeup and nails. Fisher Price Vanity to my caboodles. I didn’t have a mom who was into make-up, shopping, or anything much girly. But, I still got the Miss. Pretty makeup and plastic high heels. Can’t say my childhood was all bad. I look back an realize the time I spent thinking and doing skincare helped get me through that childhood.

Me… On the left

I learned alot from my best childhood friend Megan’s mom Lana. Call her Mom #2 but, she’s really the #1 MOM! She was the one there for me at my wedding when the biological mom turned down the opportunity to be there. At many tumbling meets to do my hair and make my leotards. An can’t even count the hours, days, weekend’s spent at her house. Anything a young girl learned growing up like shaving your legs was learned at her house. Not enough words to express my gratitude.

This is where a spa jacuzzi mat mixed with Dish soap turned a small bathroom into a complete bubble kingdom. Seriously, picture was after half bubbles were wiped. Ceiling to floor an wall to wall. It was great; until we had to clean it! πŸ˜‚ Megs and I would go to the library to get skincare diy books. Wow, to all the kitchen food and beauty products of mom’s that we used. We would hit the mall and I would always get some skincare, makeup, or nail polish. When Sears and Claire’s were actually a hit. Definitely made my fair share of beauty fails. One thing never straighten your hair with product’s not made for your hair type. That was a CVS trip to remember and a summer of bad hair days! Does anyone else remember the Walgreens Summer beauty bundles and the Back to School one’s? They were like the first beauty box for me!

Seventeen

The older I got I relied on Magazines for a lot of information. How to and products. A teenager like me who didn’t have a female that I could talk to about woman issues. I thank Seventeen and Cosmo for teaching me a lot I know. An those teen friendships where all embarrassment goes out the window and you can talk about anything together. Another group of ladies I owe a thank you for being there as a friend during tough year’s. Unlucky for me acne ran in the dna. My mom did suffer greatly. As did my brother. I felt bad and did everything to keep mine in check. Things were said and I delt with my fair share of hiding. If you’re suffering… Know there is something today more than ever to help. Including prescriptions and treatments from dermatologist.

Once I finally read exfoliate (1 a week for sensitive dry skin) Read Ingredients for Cleanser and other products. Everyone has to moisturize… My skin changed! This wasn’t til I was about 18 but, when I seen my skin change I felt like I finally figured it out. It wasn’t about secret products my friends were not telling me about. It was about steps. An if everyone took the same steps then it was about the ingredients for each skin type. Maybe, this explantion will help some. An lucky today more and more companies are taking out bad chemicals and finding natural alternatives.

No, you don’t have to spend a fortune on products to get great skincare. Some expensive products are great. Many korean beauty a.k.a Kbeauty have same quality and potency in more affordable products. I still like products that are science/nature combined. I enjoy most natural, organic, cruelty free products.

College was the key in my house. However, if I could go back I would have gotten my esthetician licenses. My knowledge comes from doing and reading. I have read the esthetician text books. I stay on top of new products and tools I don’t even see esthetician talking about yet. I maybe the Guru but, you can do your own research as well. Because, everything at @Beanstyled is made for you to do at home. I naturally enjoyed doing hair and makeup. I have a talent I can share. Best at sharing skincare products, (Not Skin Health advice. That I recommend Dermatologist always!) Good at Sharing Makeup products and tips that work for me. Hair, I like to style and diy color at home. However, no cutting tutorial’s here.

Majority of the B. for Beauty on Bean Styled will be the health of your skin. Keeping it naturally beautiful. Lots of skincare product’s to encourage you to focus on relaxing. Sometimes even I mask and run around the house cleaning and taking care of kids. But, I don’t recommend it.

As the E in BEAN equals exercise. We’ll go more into why you need a sweaty workout in more post. But, nothing beats a good sweat session to detox the bodies pores. As long as a good cleanse comes afterwards.

We also must focus on the A. Our Attitude and that means meditation and relaxation. Ever since I was young, it so happens that taking care of my skin has helped me mentally. Using the time to focus, release energies, and meditate. Why I always encourage spa day at home. I have two girls an I am learning to involve them sometimes. I still need my own time for mom time. But, to teach them to be silent, relax, and skin health is important. Teaching them a new way to calm their mind; may find a way to teach them to release from life the unnecessary. Regain a sense of self and focus. I know many look at skincare and makeup as just vain. I don’t believe that at all. There is a therapeutic aspect to skincare and doing your makeup. It is what has made Spas billions. Spaces of solitude and complete relaxation. More homes should have bathrooms that have spa comfort. If all us spa lover’s got our way in home design. Nothing beats a treatment you have done by another’s comforting hands. Yet, to me it is more about the time we get to ourselves, treating ourselves, in the privacy of our own space. Again, where traveling and mobile spa professional’s are making a new income by coming to you. I do like where the industry is going.

Skincare has always been something I enjoy and think is fun. It is more than just the beauty industry. It comes down to the N. Nutrition. You can’t expect to have a healthy body or skin with all the processed foods in America. Drinking water is not the magic potion but, it sure help’s to keep the body and skin hydrated. This is why it is important to eat organic grown foods. No chemical’s to process to mess up the body. No chemical’s to mess with our hormones and reak havic on our skin. The day I gave up Soda and fast food companies is also another time in life I realized my skin had less break outs. An it glows naturally more than ever.

So from a little girl who loved all things pretty whom wished she had known more about the careers that fit my passion… I wouldn’t change a thing. An although I don’t have a famous name or family to back a loan hundreds of thousands of dollars to create my skincare ideas. I will only continue as people need to hear that they are the most important. That really it’s not all about the products. It’s how we treat ourselves. I can only hope more people will come hear and join in on B.E.A.N. LifeStyle.

Reviva Labs, “The Natural Skincare Authority”!

So whom is this Reviva Labs? Well, according to their website a company working on natural skincare for over 40 years! An I am Proud to say Reviva Labs is “Proudly made in the U.S.A.”

A family owned company still today. Has focused and truly cared about natural skincare since the 70’s. Bean Styled believes natural ingredients from Mother Earth has their own powers. You can find brands like Reviva Labs with Amazing products right here on our site.

I have been using Reviva labs Brightening System for two weeks. I have sensitive skin. So the fact I can spot treat with all these products is amazing. I can literally feel them working. I get a slight tingle sensation. But, no rash or irritation has occurred. So I am continuing to use them on my dark spots.

My most favorite product from the entire line is the Brightening Facial Cleanser! It does not leave my skin dried out. My skin feels clean and leaves it glowing! So with sensitive skin yet, I am aging like the rest of you. It is wonderful to find a dark spot/uneven skintone cleanser that doesn’t strip my skin. It also contains one of my favorite ingredients… Aloe!

An speaking of ingredients. It would take a page to list all the wonderful natural ingredients they are using. Their favorite in this line happens to be Kojic Acid. I believe I seen it in all the Brightening products. It usually comes from mushrooms and big in Japanese skincare too. I for one can’t use Retinol. So from what I can tell from others stories. If Retinol is too strong for your skin, Kojic Acid maybe a better option for you to try as well.

The professional strength Day brightening cream would be too strong for me. So I began sharing with my mother in law who lives with me. An gifted her that cream. She has fallen in love! We both like how they soak in. Even thou the cream is thicker it feels luxurious with a nice aroma. The Professional strength contains Hydroquinone which is a level up from Kojic Acid I’d say. Yet, about the same maybe slightly less than Retinol strength. They give you options for many different skin types. An I am grateful for this.

This is a perfect night time line for myself. An day/night cleanser. My mother in law has begun using the entire line as well. So I can’t wait to see her skin In 2, & 4 weeks. She is using it twice a day. An if you do daytime make sure to wear your SPF. I love how the products go a long way with just a little. So very affordable and worth the price!

Check out Reviva Labs Today. www.revivalabs.com

They have more skincare lines. So anyone could find a product to love. If you think like Bean Styled and your into natural skincare over chemical Ingredients soaking into your skin. Make sure to subscribe to Bean Styled Newsletter. You’ll find great products like Reviva Labs!

Press on Nails Gold Medal.. Dashing Diva Magic Press!

@DashingDiva Magic press on nails are simply that… Magic!

These nails stayed on two weeks before I took my nails off. I coach tumbling and none of these nails popped off. Now that is just astonishing! I took them off to see how easy it was going to be. That was just as easy and did NOT peel any of my nails off. I think I’m going to have to do a challenge and see how long the nails will actually stay on all ten… Longer than two weeks so possibly a whole month!

An Guess what… I’m Still rocking my toe nails. I absolutely love to do press on nails and toenails. I have tried about 3 other brands and hands down… I’m sticking with Dashing Diva. You can find them @Sallybeauty

They are the perfect size for my hand’s flat big bed nails that are naturally short. I don’t have petite nails like a lot of my lady friends. I do like them short but, I love to have my nails done. Yet, they cost is getting out of hand these days. I also love the fact I control when I want to do my nails even at midnight. And, I can take them off without going to a salon.

I am stocking up on my Dashing Diva nails so I have whatever style I need for events, vacation, or when I want my nails looking fabulous. I can’t rave enough about these press on nails.
