Oh, the dreaded dark spot. You've been doing so well keeping your skin acne free. Now, it's that time of the month and you got an unfortunate pimple. Even more unfortunate, it left behind a mark! Nothing worse. If you are lucky, you'll have one mark but if you suffered a bad breakout you may have several. This situation happens to a lot of women - especially women of color. So how do you make this go away? Well, patience. It takes time for the marks to actually fade. In the meantime, their are several products that I love that could help make this process go by a lot quicker. Check out the video below for details.

Silk n' Sonic Clean: This facial brush provides a deep-cleansing for healthier, younger looking skin. The SonicCleanPlus is easy to use and comes with three brushes. Use it at night (or in the morning) to achieve cleaner and more radiant skin. This products works effectively to remove dead skin cells and other impurities.

Ponds Fade Cream: This product is known to help even out your skin tone in 2 weeks, while reducing the appearance of dark spots in 4 weeks. I personally do not use this every day. I use it a couple times a week at night as a moisturizer.

Garnier Skin Renew Clinical Dark Spot Overnight Peel: Skin Renew Clinical Dark Spot Overnight Peel fades spots and reveals smoother, brighter, more even tone skin. After washing your face at night, apply a small amount of the leave-on peel and go to bed. When you wake up in the morning wash your face as usual.

Dr. Dennis Gross Peel: This is my FAVORITE skincare product right now. It's worth every single penny! Hands down the reason why I have clear, even (knock on wood) skin right now and not a single break out ( knock on wood). This is an anti-aging facial peel on presoaked cotton towelettes. These patented two-step treatment pads deliver visible anti=aging results without recovery time. They work to reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and pore size, while creating a more even skintone and brightening the complexion. Recommended for sensitive skin, the pads also work to calm redness and irritation and clear imperfections resulting in a healthy, glowing complexion. DO NOT purchase the pads that come in the tub! These are known to dry out towards the bottom. Purchasing the pads that are individually wrapped is suggested. Though pricey, this product is worth it. 100%! Stay tuned for an upcoming video on this product in my skincare video.

It all started with a Google search. We saw one villa, we pursued one villa, and we were forever changed. Before we arrived, our correspondence with the house manager was seamless, and our anticipation grew with each timely and thoroughly answered question.

Six of my closest friends and I flew into the Kingston airport early one spring morning and begun our journey to, what can only be described as the most relaxing weekend I have ever experienced. When we pulled up to the villa in the fantastic Karandas Tour arranged van, we were met with the warmest smile from Pat and Elvis, who greeted us as if we had known them our whole lives. We entered the home and it was more vibrant and beautiful than can be captured in any picture. 

We later met Bryan and Cherry who, like Pat and Elvis, were remarkable people who we now regard as friends. Bryan is superhuman, during the duration of the trip if we so much as had a thought for any item, it would suddenly manifest itself in his hands. Our group was full of seven very harsh culinary critics, but everything Cherry made was beyond exceptional, I can’t possibly speak more highly of her or the food. Every meal we had outside of the villa paled in comparison.

The villa, which is nestled between several resorts, puts the larger establishments to shame. We felt like Queens of the island as we tanned on our lounge chairs, explored on kayaks, relaxed in the pool or just floated in the Caribbean Sea. Bryan literally provided the soundtrack to the weekend, playing a festive but relaxed mix of reggae tunes. 

It is also worth noting that the rooms are air conditioned at night, but during the day, all of the doors and windows are opened as a warm breeze flows through the house.

They also are expert concierge, pointing us to the best activities like the Blue Hole and setting up taxis by land or sea.

We now consider Scotch on the Rocks our Ochi home. The stay feels like you are visiting relatives, the kindheartedness of the staff, beauty of the home, and tranquility of your surroundings creates something unique and indescribable that you must experience for yourself.

The villa and staff truly embody the essence and spirit of Jamaica: Out of many, one people.

Warm weather is finally here which means that it may be a good time to transition your makeup from Winter to Summer. Usually during warmer months I wear more natural makeup in order to wear less makeup. The last thing I want to do is wear a heavy foundation in 100 degree weather. In the video below I demonstrate how to achieve a natural makeup appearance.

Luckily, my skin has improved (knock on wood) and I have very little problem areas because of my new routine (which I will do a video on soon). Applying makeup with a lighter coverage comes easy to me but I understand for someone that has problematic skin, wearing natural/light makeup can be quite difficult. Most natural looking makeup provides little coverage.  BB Creams or CC Creams (for color correction) or a product like MAC Face & Body are good selections for someone in search of a lighter foundation with a bit more coverage. For a very natural look try a tinted moisturizer which helps with uneven skin tones. Often times by applying a bit of concealer you can help fix specific areas.
