The winter blues are hopefully behind us with spring here.  That’s right, spring has sprung!  Celebrating the blossoming of Mother Nature’s beauty is all around us.  Why not take a little inspiration from Mother Nature herself and do a little spring rejuvenation to ourselves.   Lets release our skin from underneath those wintering dry dead flakey layers!  Your face is ready to greet the sunshine again after a nice do at home super easy and fun face mask

To pay our greatest tribute to our city, which has been pegged, ‘Beer City USA’, lets take something that is of plenty and use it to make our skin shine.  Yes, you guessed it, the main ingredient in this do it yourself facemask is beer.  It isn’t just for the boys anymore and not just for drinking.  Beer can be used for multiple purposes, but today I am sharing with you how it can make your face glow!

Balancing the Hulk

The hulk or should I say, Bruce Banner walks the fine line of not getting too angry, and I hope you don’t allow your skin too either.  Ideally you want your skin to be happily radiating to keep the anger at bay.  With the ironically named Balancing the Hulk facemask, you too can keep your skin’s moisture balanced, with clear tight pores and filled with antioxidants!  Oh and not to mention, you will look like the Hulk from the green pigment in the spirulina (but only when you have the mask on-it does not dye your skin).

-1/2 tsp spirulina powder

-1 ripe mashed banana

-splash of fresh lemon juice

Spirulina is great for the whole body (you can ingest it too)- it has more antioxidants than blueberries.  It can help lesson the effects of sun damage, while reducing the appearance of fine lines.

For the mask, mash the banana, add the spirulina, lemon juice and apply to the face.  Keep on for 10-15min.  So simple.  Your skin will thank you!

This next face mask takes us back a few years to the Aztecs and is known as the “World’s Most Powerful Facial”!  It is simply two ingredients.

Pulsating Puddy

Equal parts:

-100% Natural Calcium Bentonite Clay

-Apple Cider Vinegar41015 107 //DIY// Facemasks

Mix ingredients together in a non-metal bowl to form a smooth paste.  Apply 1/4in to 1/2in to the face.

The awesomeness of this facial is that you will feel your face tingle or pulsate as the clay dries.  Leave on the skin anywhere from 10-20min.  Remove with warm water.

**This is one of the more difficult masks I have done to get off.  Just be patient with it.  The clay will come off as it softens back up from the warm water.**

If your face is a little red this is normal from the pulsating invigorating feeling you felt while the mask was working its magic on your face.

Whether you want to explore the route of the Hulk, feel pulsating sensations and/or get your face ‘drunk’, your face will sure be thankful for the time you took to keep your face bright fresh and shedding away that winter layer!

I recently shot Miss Tiffany for a gorgeous and edgy Beauty Session.  She wrote this wonderful testimonial that hits the nail on the head as far as what your experience will be like when you come to my studio.  Thank you, Miss Tiffany for your fun spirit and kind words!

“I have dabbled in a couple photo shoots in the past, so I had somewhat of an expectation going into my session with Jesamin of Emery & Co. Photography.  Although, I don’t like to hold expectation too high, because every experience should be different and judged solely on itself- unless it just totally just bombs.  However, any sort of expectation I could have been lingering on to, was completely crushed by Jesamin and her services at Emery & Co. Photography.

They play close attention to the small things.  The small things are what add up to make an experience great.  From the first time I met Jesamin, I immediately noticed, how well she is at engaging with you and being relatable.  She makes sure the outfits you have in mind will look great for the camera, figuring out the style or mood you want to capture, as well as overcoming any hesitations you may have about the process.

A major additional service Emery & Co Photography provides is hair and make-up.  With some photo shoots I have had in the past I felt like they could have been better if I had better make-up.  Lets face it we all just don’t keep make up on hand made especially for use with the camera.  And truthfully I think that is a good thing, we don’t have to walk around constantly thinking we are going to appear on TV or in a photo, ha.  She takes the time to sit down with you, the makeup artist and hair expert to figure out the look you are trying to capture.  If there is ever anything in question while getting glammed up, she is just an arms length away to help out!

Her minimalist approach to props and staging makes you the centerpiece of the photo.  After all, you are the one that needs to shine, not some pretty flowers sprouting behind your head!

Whether you are looking to get a little sexy, a little professional or just having fun, Emery & Co. Photography is a great fit for you.  The process is easy, professional and most importantly fun!  I promise you wont leave disappointed…so what are you waiting for?  Book your session today and experience all the greatness I just shared with you!”
