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 a blog on Google’s 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! ๐Ÿ˜‚ 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!


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.

SugarWaxing & Professional’s at HumbleBeeLV!

First, Thanks to @HumbleBeeLV for my first, enjoyable, and skin changing #Sugarwaxing Service! Here is my social collaboration with a local small beauty waxing business called #HumblebeeLV

Let me Introduce to you a new waxing Service I’ve never had! (Surprised? Me too!) A girl who started going to the beauty school for services when I was…11 never heard of SUGARWAXING!

Dulcinea owner of HumbleBeeLV contacted me through my personal Instagram wanting to do a local business social media collaboration. An of course I said yes! It falls into Natural Beauty, I’ve never had the service, an it was my first in person collaboration. All too exciting to not find out what this SugarWaxing is all about!

I not only learned so much about SugarWaxing. I found a great esthetician who was knowledgeable in her craft. I love it when I learn little FYI information. Like when she told me SugarWaxing started with Cleopatra. I was instantly intrigued and instilled Dulcinea much trust in her ripping out my leg hairs. To say the least I was a bit scared of the waxing process. I researched myself and according to Wikipedia, “Sugaring, sugar waxing or Persian waxing is a method of hair removal that has been in use since 1900 BC. Historically, sugar was confined to the regions surrounding Persia until the first millennium AD. As a result, it is speculated that honey was the first sugaring agent.“. I love any Natural beauty products that still work thousands of years later. An better than ones we have even created today. Think about that one!

When I first arrived she greeted me like we had been friends forever! I appreciate that so much when someone works with the public you have to have great customer service skills. The suite is quiet and personal consultation is quick. An the whole process for half legs only took 45 minutes. Now mind you we talked a lot for social media sake. So if in a hurry I bet she can get you in an out in under 30 Minutes! I was astonished how quick it really did go. An it did not hurt anymore than having my eyebrows done. I honestly think that feels good. An the only part was the inside part of my leg that made me flinch.

One ball of SugarWax is used for your entire process. You can see how it gets more Yellow. Full of dead skin and hair. It may look gross but, the exfoliation is a gentle one and only lifts dead skin. The service doubles as a great exfoliation and waxing skincare procedure. At least for myself, with such dry an sensitive skin. I believe this is actually better than shaving. I’m going back in 4 weeks so for the price once a month; I find the service is so worth it! Especially when she told me I could even have hair not grow back eventually. I am absolutely OKAY with that idea! An if this improves my skin on my legs. Like I believe it will. I’m definitely throwing out razors, having my whole legs and arm pits done. End of hairy leg struggles, helps my dry skin… What could be better for the price? Just shorts, beaches, and legs out in the sun!

Waking up the next day they feel extremely smooth and look so shiny! It’s a miracle. I don’t wear shorts. Most who know me see me in pants daily. If I can improve dry skin and red patches. I will be rocking them this summer

SugarWaxing is not only for us women. Men have found it more relaxing and easier on chest and back hair. Check out their Instagram for an amazing video! It will make you a believer in SugarWaxing.

HumblebeeLV has two locations Summerlin, Southwest, and a new location coming to Henderson in June 2018!

I highly recommend Dulcinea an crew at HumblebeeLV to do your SugarWaxing Services. They have the knowledge, and most wonderful experienced staff.

I’ll be sure to update after my next appointment on my SugarWaxing journey. It is far from over. I will have my full YouTube review video of my experience up tomorrow! Be sure to follow my Instagram for daily updates. And follow HumbleBeeLV on Insta, Facebook, and all their social medias as well. You will learn about waxing and score some giveaways and deals!

Auperwel Hard Wax Heater and BEANS!


Hard Wax a new thing to you? For so long some Salons and aestheticians have refused to use it. It is a little more expensive than soft wax. But, has it’s own benefits in skincare.

Hard Wax vs. Soft Wax:

Soft wax is good for bigger parts on the body. Such as legs. You can spread more out and use the muslin cloth to pull out fine hair and top layer of dead skin. Still probably the best for Brazilian waxes.

Hard Wax is best for smaller areas such as facial hair. It is great for bikini area as well. Since hard wax just grabs hair and doesn’t pull off so much dead skin. It is better for sensitive skin and areas. Perfect for face.

For most salons and aestheticians it isn’t always the most affordable Product to stock. Hard wax usually cost a little more. However if you have a client with extremely sensitive skin who Normally couldn’t get waxing done. Learn that some women are finding out hard wax is an option for them. Also, it works great on course hair. Hello Men!

Check the bloggers, Instagrammer’s, and social media beauty influencers, you’ll see hard wax as the next big thing. It is easier for myself to control this wax. Which may make it easier waxing at home for many women who like to do their own lip and eyebrows.

Auperwel Hard Wax Heater makes it super fast and convenient. Coming with 4 bags of wax beans made from good for your skin beeswax and coconut oil. Plus, sticks to apply. You have everything you need and ready to go as soon as you get your Auperwel Wax Heater in. For an entire bag of beans to melt took only 15 minutes tops! It has Professional heat and temperature control Gage to get them to melt quickly. An warmer stage to keep it melted but, not to hot for skin and ready to use when needed. So this would be great for a spa/salon too. An FDA and FCC approved. It has an automatic turn off so safer to use when busy.

I love the fact you don’t need muslin cloths. An it does harden so no worry about knocking over a mess when it’s off an not using it. Accidents happen.

How to use Hard Wax:

The trick to hard wax is putting it on thick. Allow to dry only 10-15 seconds depending on thickness. Where it is still warm yet not sticky. The warmth helps open up pores so hairs come out easier. Bonus, less skin pulled off! Still apply a baby oil or your favorite after wax skin solution.

Check out my How to and review video on YouTube.

Neutrogena Healthy Skin Makeup!

I partnered with @Neutrogena to bring you my #HolidayHealthySkin look!

Holidays are a time to indulge… Bring on peppermint lattes and festivities galore! But the holiday season can be tough on your skin leaving it dull, dry, and puffy come New Year’s day.
I’m finishing the season with my skin looking and feeling as healthy as when it started..and with Neutrogena Healthy Skinยฎ liquid makeup it could look even better than before.

I recreated Hollywood Eiza Gonzalez’s red carpet Glam. Using HydroBoost concealer, Healthy Skin liquid makeup, and Eye brightening perfector to Contour and cover. Healthy skin Blush, Nourishing Long Wear Eyeshadow, and Healthy Boost Hydrating Lip Shine to complete the look.

“Neutrogena Healthy Skinยฎ products offer lightweight, non-greasy formulas that provide beautiful, natural coverage so your skin instantly looks its best. Plus, an exclusive triple antioxidant blend helps improve the look of skin over time.

I used the Healthy Skin liquid makeup in Classic Ivory 10 and Natural Ivory 20 for my foundation coverage. The Buff 30 was great to use for contouring. I love using liquids to contour over powders since my skin is so dry. This foundation feels great on skin. Like your wearing none at all with no drying or caking.

I used the Eye brightening eye perfector in Fair 05 under eyes and lids to help instantly brighten and cover dark circles. An Light 10 to cover dark spots under eyes more on top of cheek area where highlighter goes and above eyebrows.

The HydroBoost Hydrating Concealer with Hyaluronic acid is definitely the most Hydrating stick concealer I’ve ever used. I love having Hyaluronic acid in my skincare. An I am loving it in my beauty products! No drying or caking. Covers so well. An actually left my skin looking smooth and glowing.

I finished off my look with Healthy Skin Blush in Rosy 10. It’s a pink with gold highlight on my skin. Absolutely loved how it added color and glow. Enriched with age fighting Vitamin C and botanical conditioners. Again, no caking or drying out of my skin. This whole line is very impressive to someone who suffers from dry and sensitive skin. An aging skin has a makeup that is beneficial to them.

Nourishing Long Wear eye Shadow with built in primer in Classic Nude 60. I could make endless looks with this one pallette. Go from a Natural day look to a Natural smokey evening eye.

I have been looking for a new bigger mascara brush to fall in love with. Neutrogena Healthy Volume Mascara not only has the perfect brush with different size bristles. It has olive oil to penetrate and help plump lashes. Along with sweet Almond oil to help protect outside of lashes. So I am excited to continue to use this on my tiny lashes and hope it may help mine actually grow. It sure did add volume, separated lashes, and no clumps at all!

Finally, Healthy Boost Hydrating Lip Shine in Velvet Wine 70 just made the whole look Pop! The color is so Gorgeous on. It looked darker in the tube. It is not sticky and it stayed in place for hours with a beautiful shine! Even after it wore off I still had a hint of color for hours! It contains Hyaluronic acid to help keep lips Moisturized. Unlike many lip Products Neutrogena Lip Shine did not dry out my lips. I’ve definitely added this to my favorites!

Check out my recreated look of Eiza Gonzalez’s Hollywood Glam Red carpet:
