Get Your Body Summer-Ready With Beauty Prize Packages Totaling Over $5000

Get Your Body Summer-Ready With Beauty Prize Packages Totaling Over $5000, By Barbies Beauty Bits

Summer is right around the corner, but is your body Summer-Ready? If not do I have the solution for you, with this “Get Ready For Summer” contest, and prize packages totaling over $5000! Slim Silhouettes will have your body looking amazing is the speed of light with their Slim Light Therapy. So enter here!

WHAT THE HECK IS SLIM LIGHT THERAPY?
Well, red light therapy is not new. It has been used for years to help with medical conditions! However, what is new is that this unique light therapy is used to target specific areas to help eliminate your unwanted fat!

The unique light emitted from the Slim Light device causes the fat cell membranes to alter the permeability of the cell wall temporarily. It stimulates your fat cells to release the fat, allowing it to be processed and eliminated by the body naturally.

Why red light therapy is better than coolsculpting by Barbies Beauty Bits and Slim Silhouettes


WHAT CAN I EXPECT DURING EACH SESSION?
Unlike other fat reducing methods, such as liposuction or Coolsculpting, there is no pain, bruising, tissue damage, surgery, and no downtime. It is actually very relaxing.

During the treatment, you will be placed lying down on a treatment table. Special red light pads will be positioned in strategic places on your body in which you want to eliminate fat, and you simply enjoy a relaxing 20-minute session.

Because this is non-evasive, you can resume your regular activities immediately!

WHAT HAPPENS TO THE FAT?
After being released, the fat is broken down through the lymphatic system and processed through the liver and kidney. The fatty acids can be either used as fuel or quickly eliminated by the body.

HOW SOON WILL I SEE RESULTS?
Results are usually seen after just one treatment.

HOW LONG LASTING ARE THE RESULTS?
The results can be very long-lasting.  However, this method does not destroy fat cells but releases some of their contents. Checkout some of these Slim Light Therapy before and afters.

Bonus
Aside from the fact that this is a Non-Evasive procedure, unlike other therapies out there, this procedures also increases collagen and elastin in the skin while creating a slimmer appearance.

Tips For Getting Your Lips Summer Ready With Herpecin

Tips For Getting Yours Lips Summer Ready With Herpecin By Barbies Beauty Bits

Pucker up baby; it is time to get your lips Summer Ready and Herpecin is here to help!

When people think of the change of seasons and beauty tips, most think of clothes, hair, tanning, makeup, but a lot forget about skincare and more so forget about the lips!

When the weather gets warmer, and the sun is out more, we need to be thinking of our lips.  And if the hot temperatures are not enough to punish your pout, the transition from the sultry heat to cool air conditioning can cause the lips to become dry and chapped as well!

For this post, I partnered up with Primp and Herpecin to share with you some tips to get your lips summer ready. So if you want to get a kick start for the summer, continue reading!

Tips to protecting your lips and treating sun blisters by Barbies Beauty Bits and Herpecin

Lip Protection
Our lips are more susceptible to the sun compared to other areas of our body. For one our lips do not have any sebaceous glands. These glands are the ones that keep the rest of the skin on our body moist. Hence the only source of moisture for our lips is salvia, thus the dryness and chapping!

Secondly, another thing to be aware of is that our lips do not have any melanin in them. Melanin is essential as this is the natural way that our body protects the skin from the dangerous UV rays, and because the lips do not have this protection, they are at risk to get blistered and sunburnt! Not what I call Summer Beauty!

So, what is a girl to do? Protect your pout with a product like Herpecin!

Tips to prevent and cure chapped lips this summer by Barbies Beauty Bits

What The Heck Is Herpecin L
Now I know that the name may be throwing you off, but this product is just not for cold sores. It is a LIPtastic product- known as the consumer brand "jewel lip treatment” that can be used year-round as it protects your lips from cracking and is more hydrating than other therapies! My lips have been so dry lately, and this lip therapy is a must to help me get and keep my lips summer ready as it is uniquely formulated with dimethicone for protection, and sunscreens to help guard against the sun's harmful rays!

Sun Blisters
Yes, the elephant in the room, a cold sore, fever or sunblister, whatever you want to call it, but the fact is that 50-80% US adults have oral herpes. So for those of you who are looking for a product to help with those evil outbreaks as well as some great lip protection, Herpecin L is for you!  Not only does Herpicin provide protection and hydration, but it also gives instant relief without numbing or drying your sensitive pout!

Where To Purchase Herpecin
Herpecin L 30 Lip Protectant/Cold Sore & Sunscreen Lip Balm Stick can be purchased at your local Walmart! So while you are getting some sunblock, beach bag, beach hat and other beach essentials, don't forget to pick up some herpecin for yourself and some for the entire family!

Exfoliate Your Lips
Exfoliation is an essential step in proper skincare, and our lips are not any different. Exfoliating your lips helps to keep them looking and feeling luscious. However, when it comes to exfoliating your lips, you want to be careful as you do not want to cause any damage. The lips are delicate, so you will want to use a gentle exfoliant, and I prefer some DIY treatments to help, check them out below.
  • Honey and sugar lip scrub… Sugar is an effective natural exfoliant and honey has excellent antibacterial properties, full of antioxidants and is amazing for moisturizing and soothing the lips.

  • Use a toothbrush. Yes, I said toothbrush, but you want to be gentle. Therefore I recommend using a soft bristle brush. Just apply some petroleum jelly and with a clean, soft bristle toothbrush, gently brush your lips in a circular motion. 
Finish both above lip scrubs with a moisturizing treatment, like Herpecin.

Your Diet
You are what you eat is a true statement. Plus, chapped lips not only occur because of a lack of moisture but also a deficiency in vitamin B. Some foods to consider adding to your diet are those rich in riboflavin and don’t forget about those high in antioxidants that can help with antiaging!
  • Dark Green Vegetables
  • Berries
  • Nuts
  • Sweet Potatoes
  • Whole Grains
  • Fish

Stay Hydrated
Drinking plenty of water is essential, and I must be honest this is one area I am not great at as the task of drinking 13 glasses of water a day can be daunting.  While I am not dismissing the importance of drinking this many glasses, there are some other liquids you can consume. OR if you are like me, you can get some of your needed h20 intakes by adding some fruit like watermelon to your water.  Not only is watermelon great for hydration it also full of antioxidants such as lycopene, vitamin C and A which helps reduce those evil free radicals, hence slowing down the signs of aging.

Another great drink to consume is coconut water as it has a high PH, and not only does it hydrate the body, but also moisturizes the lips.

Don’t Lick Your Lips
Not only does this drive me nuts but licking your lips can cause them to become drier as you are basically putting the acids and bacteria in your mouth directly on your lips! Instead, apply some Herpecin!

So, there you have beauties! My top tips to get your smackers summer ready and in my case below camera ready! MUAH!

How To Make Your Own Clip-In Hair Extensions With Divatress


I am a hair extension queen and have been making my own Clip-in hair extensions for over 15 years, way before they became readily available to the public.  While you can purchase clip-in hair, the volume of hair on the wefts is minimal and can be costly. Hence, I prefer to make my own!

Clip-in hair is perfect for those who want to make a change to the length, add volume, change up the color, etc. without a long-term commitment.  Plus, there is not any damage to the hair.

So how do you make clip-in hair? Well, it is not difficult, all you must do is find a company with quality hair and purchase the needed products.  One company that offers both synthetic as well as human hair is Divatress.

This company is a leading online company that offers not only hair bundles and accessories to make your own clip-in hair, but they also provide tons of wigs, box braids, and other hair care products to anyone, not just professional stylists.

So, if you want to find out how to make your own clip-in hair with products from Divatress continue reading.

DIY tips to making your own hair extensions by Barbies Beauty Bits

The Type Of Hair
Personally, I prefer to use Remy human hair as you can heat style it with a curling iron and or flat iron, color it, wash it, cut it, basically anything you would do with your hair.

Furthermore, Remy Human hair is the highest quality of real, human hair on the market. Remy human hair has a luxurious quality because unlike other human hair products Remy hair is not stripped and the cuticles are kept intact. The hair is held in a unidirectional fashion that helps create extensions with a natural appearance.

Remy human hair is also super soft, shiny, and silky. Plus, when you use them to make hair extensions, the hair is much more manageable to maintain and completely tangle-free.  Remy human hairstyles go beyond anything synthetic extensions can give you. No matter your style or hair needs, Divatress has a broad selection of some of the best Remy hair that comes in lengths ranging from 10 inches to 20 inches.

Products needed to make your own Clip in Hair extensions by Barbies Beauty Bits and Divatress

Other Products Need To Make Your Own Clip-in Hair
Divatress has everything you need to make your own clip-in hair, see my checklist of items below.

Magic Weaving Combo- This is a must as it makes it so easy to sew the clips on the hair. This combo pack is complete with weave thread and three different needles to choose from, so your hair extensions are sure to turn out with sturdy clips that will last throughout the duration of the hair!

Wig Clips- Don’t let the name fool you, these are not just for wigs. I prefer to use the large ones; the quantity will depend on how many hair pieces you have.  Also, the wig clips from Divastress are high quality; this is not something you want to cheap out on as the last thing you want is for your hair extensions to fall off your head!

Measuring Tape- To measure out the hair as you want it even.

Hair Scissors- Quality scissors are essential as you do not want to damage the hair.

Bonding Hair Glue- I like the Salon Pro 30 Seconds Hair Bonding Glue as it is an anti-fungus that delivers a perfect hold at an amazing speed.

How To Make Your Own Clip In Hair Extensions

Now that you have all the accessories you are ready to start making your clip-in hair.  There are a few steps and while it does take some time it is sure worth it!

The Hair
I try to get my exact hair color, but if you can’t find it, that is OK, as you can dye the human hair wefts to match yours. Another tip is to purchase assorted colors of hair bundles to blend in with your hair.

I bought a lighter color that matched my highlights and a darker color that matched my roots and the rest of my hair. Doing this allows you to blend the hair, so it looks like your real hair. If you were to do this with already made clip-in hair, it would cost you a fortune, approx. $400, while making your own will save you about 70%! The I length purchased was 18 inches.

Once you have the hair bundles, you want to decide how many clip-ins you wish to make, depending on the volume of hair you want.  The trick to making full clip-in hair is to double or triple the hair track of hair in one clip-in piece.

I make two clip-in wefts for my hair that I place in the back. One track has two tracks of hair; the second one has 3 for added volume.
What A Bundle Of Hair Looks Like

Measuring The Hair
To custom fit your hair so it will look natural, you want to take your measuring tape and measure your hair along the back in a few areas. The first area is above the nape, and then about an inch above and if you are going for more pieces work your way up to about ½ inch. (I measure from ear to ear).

BONUS TIP... Another trick in deciding the width is going with lengths that are offered in standard clip-in sets and recreating those lengths.  For a full set of hair (a total of 10 pieces) see lengths and quanities below.
  • One 8” weft 
  • One 7" weft
  • Two 6” wefts 
  • Two 4” wefts 
  • Four 1” wefts
Cutting The Hair
Once you have measured your hair, you want to cut the hair to fit those custom measured lengths to fit your head. And remember to double them up for added volume.

Gluing The Hair
I prefer to glue the wefts of hair together that will be on each extension piece. You can sew them, but it takes too darn long to do that.

To glue you want to take two identical hair pieces and layer them, one on top of another, set them aside and let them dry completely before the next step.

Sewing On The Clips
The number of clips depends on the width of the hair.  Since I only make two wide pieces for the back of my hair, I choose to sew three clips on each weft.

It is crucial that you make sure to sew the wig clips on the hair correctly. The wig clips have combs that slide into your real hair; this is what is going to hold the hair into your own.  The clips basically snap shut to fit against your head, so play with them first before attaching, as you make sure that you are sewing them in the right direction.

Making your own clip in hair with wig clips by barbies beauty bits and Divatress
Wig Clips, Front & Backside View
The clips have holes in them for easy sewing. I sew three clips to each glued weft. Looking at the hair like a piece of paper, you want to sew one over to the left edge, one in the middle, and the last over to the right side.

Hair Sewing Needles
I love the magic weaving combo as the curved needles work wonders. Before I found these, I used to use regular needles, and it was a nightmare to sew without a thimble!  Thread color, it is crucial to find the color that is closest to your hair color.

IMPORTANT, you may find that people say that you can glue on the clips, DO NOT DO THIS!!! Your clips will not last long if you do this and can end up falling out, now how would that be on a date, not fun!

So there you have it beauties, my tips on how to make your own clip-in hair.
