Do you really need eye cream?

Oh what a little eye cream will do! At least that's how the cosmetic industry tells the story. I learned very early in life dabbing cream around the eyes was a serious marketing trick to make you think you're accomplishing something, only to need more and more. Certain skin types, will bypass the temporary high and head straight into the "what just happened to under my eye" phase!

The skin around your eye is the most delicate part of your facial area. Still, it's quite resilient when treated properly. Damage to the eye area starts off well before the effects are noticed:
  1. Makeup - We are eager to start wearing it! I see girls in high school doing it up daily. Each time you put makeup on the eyelids and around the eye area, then later remove it the damage has begun. Stress not--we can fix that!
  2. Cleansing - We usually pull down and tug around the eyes when cleansing and/or drying. After years of this habit, imagine the damage. Fear not--time heals all wounds!
  3. Sun Protection - Squinting....years of it. Need I elaborate more? Relax--where are your sunglasses? Or reading glasses maybe?
  4. Allergies/ Stress - Our emotions affect our health. Our Health affects our bodies. Our reactions are usually hands to the face in some form of pulling and tugging. Yes, that can be mutated. Did I say mutated? Yes, yes I did.
See, the truth is: fancy $$$$ cream and concoctions will mask the situation just enough to keep you buying more. Or, at least until you decide to have surgery. What do I suggest you say? Well for starters, aloe gel is the first go to for anyone under the age of 28 years. And please purchase only natural organic 100% aloe gel or start harvesting the plants yourself.

Start using 100% natural minerals to enhance your skin tone. Your makeup should always wash clean--one time. I have been on tv (Oklahoma days) and also I post videos regularly. I only wear minerals or nothing. I have seen women with their face caked with makeup for stage and tv. You must start taking care of your skin. This is where your protection and communication soars.

Learn proper skincare techniques. I give holistic skincare coaching and workshops often. You are welcome to join or sign up! Most workshops are free! (email me for details)

Meditation, exercise, and better nutritional habits will keep you healthy and help reduce your stress level. This does wonders for your skin! When you are balanced your skin can naturally glow!

Over 28? Herbal extracts will work faster to heal than any cream will. At night seal your treatment with your aloe and/ or a natural oil that contains vitamin e. Royal Nubian's oil free spray moisturizers contain herbal extracts to tighten the eye area and nourish cells for healing.

40's and up--you should try the Royal Nubian's enzyme treatments. These formulas were designed to assist your skin in healing and regeneration.

You asked the question, and I hope you are enjoying these answers in truth and love. I am open to examining other products you are using to see its' effectiveness on your skin. Thank you for sharing this article and I look forward to answering more of your questions. Send your questions anytime to contact@royalnubian.com

Water: Skin Care 4 Self Care

Greetings to You!

I hope you are embracing your autumn blessed. Out here in the pacific northwest (pnw) we are starting to get a little more rain and the leaves have turned into pillars of fire dancing in the soft cool wind. I notice as you may also every turn of season I tend to not feel the need to drink water. I know my body needs it. So, what is happening exactly?


The reality is we are most often chronically dehydrated and not even aware of it. By the time we actually feel thirsty we are lacking proper fluids for our skin to function. The skin cells will happily give water to the vital organs to keep you alive before it keeps your supple skin beautiful. During hotter months we thirst quicker than during cooler months. Yet we still need the same amount of water if not more to keep our bodies cool, or warm.


I've learned to drink water at room temperature year round to be consistent in hydrating my body. I drink water 15 minutes before a meal and 30 minutes after a meal. Anytime I feel the urge to snack, I drink water first! Sometimes our bodies are looking for hydration and the urge feels more like hunger.


So, you don't like to drink a lot of water? Instead of other beverages try raw fruits and veggies. They contain water and your body will absorb it readily. Eating these everyday also helps keep your body hydrated.


During these times your skin may start to feel drier from moving from cold air to warm air frequently. My advice is to keep a bottle of your oil free spray moisturizer close by to spray your skin anytime you feel drier than usual. And, also keep a bottle of water handy for internal use!


Enjoy your autumn, keep drinking your water. Alkaline is best! I like the taste of spring water personally. I'll alkaline it by adding a splash of apple cider vinegar or lemon juice.


Love Power!

Turn Over A New Leaf

Greetings to You on this lovely autumn day,

I hope all is well. And by chance it may not be, I can assure you it is all well. October is about change and improvement. Sometimes you might not realize you are resisting the change. When the change is going in a direction you're not, it's still a change as you learn to let go and move forward on your path.

The leaves are changing right now. Your body is changing right now. Your being is changing... Imagine a deciduous tree that refused to let go of leaves in the fall. Imagine your skin refusing to let go of dead skin cells. That would become a serious problem. You see when it's time to change for some it's also a time to let go. Not everyone is an evergreen. Change and letting go is a wonderful experience giving you an opportunity to improve your being and yes, empower your beauty!

Your skin care should reflect this change. Your blessed skin is a defender to your body and a messenger for your being. Allow autumn to become your season for self care through skin care. You can learn how to bless your skin and bless yourself  in the process.

Spa Nubia has wonderful events to help you to grow and understand your connections through your skin internally and externally. Understanding your skin holistically is major step in your health and wellbeing as a whole. So go ahead! Turn over a new leaf; look, face, cell, body, & aura!

You deserve to be beautiful!

Glow with the Harvest Moon!

The energy created from the moonlight can beautify us in so many ways. Many of us aren't aware how the earth's beauty is dependent on the moonlight. The plants we eat that nourish our bodies vibrate with abundance due to the blessed moonlight. The energy from those same plants when we consume them radiates within our bodies healing and regenerating. The same plants when placed on your skin will do the same--empowering your beauty!

Do you also remember the moonlight is light from the sun? This is why in some ancient texts it's referred to as the lesser light. It's soft hues don't emit powerful rays. It just glows an energy that is empowered by something much greater. Kinda like you and me!

So dance in the full moonlight! Embrace the transition it brings! Yes, you deserve to be beautiful!

Love Power!

Prepare Yourself to Be Beautiful!


Autumn is approaching and the season is beginning to change. It's a time of transitioning wherever you are right now in this world. It's also a time to prepare! You see this in nature. Animals that hibernate begin to eat more. Ants gather food and go underground. You see the birds start to take off in patterned flights heading south.

How shall you prepare for your change? Will you make it a change for abundance, greatness, and love? Or, will you make it a lesson to be learned? Whichever one you choose allow it to empower your essence and make you beautiful as the autumn colors.

Your skin deserves to be prepped for the change in seasons also. Don't wait until cold dry wind starts to blow. Start hydrating your skin daily now using Royal Nubian's oil free spray moisturizers. This Autumn we are adding 2 new formulas for hydrating the skin: Calming Sea and Rejuvenating Spa, both for all skin types with names that says it all.

Or visit one of our spa locations and have a Sea Oxygen Hydrating Facial. Are you in the Tacoma/Seattle Washington area? Visit the new location Spa Nubia Organic Facial Bar for the best treatments your skin could ever desire!

Love Power!

Your Tween and Skin Care (Back to School)

As I think back to when I was 11, my morning skin care routine before school involved the simplest steps. I used water alone to wash my face and I remember using some form of cocoa butter cream for my face and the remainder of my body. I always bathed at night before bed to wash off the day and germs. So my mornings ran quickly with ease even though I loved to sleep to the last minute of the alarm clock sounding off for school. Every morning before school was a simple quick routine of: 1. brushing my teeth, 2. washing my face, and 3. moisturizing my skin and hair all before putting on clothes and eating breakfast.

Now a mother of 3, I noticed morning skin care routines for my children seem more like a chore than good hygiene. As each one becomes a tween they just aren’t that interested in good hygiene for this moment in life. My simple steps I teach, which now includes a mild cleanser (instead of my childhood water), are just one to many. It’s almost like they are wishing for a magic portal to make them fresh and ready to walk out the door. Or even better, they’re waiting for me to do it for them!

Tweens may seem to have a hard time adjusting to their changing bodies and lives as they head off to middle school or junior high. Making sure they keep up with a good skin care routine is good for their health and hygiene. It also sets a good platform for them to continue on into their teenage years (when they really want it!). My advice is to keep their products simple and gentle. Now is a good time to introduce them to natural formulas to keep their skin as healthy as possible. If your tween has any active skin conditions like acne or eczema, inquire with your health practitioner about using natural alternatives first to treat their skin with nutrition integrated. Early prevention and correction can promote their self confidence among their peers and educators.

Your natural mild cleanser should only contain 10% soap or cleansing agent. If it contains more than that I recommend cutting it with oil and/or water. Too much soap or cleanser is very drying especially on young skin. To find out how much cleansing agent is in a bottle read the ingredient label. If it’s the first 1 to 3 ingredients listed it’s about 50% or more in content or you can call the company for the details. Try a moisturizer that’s aloe based first before using oil based. If your tween skin is still dry after using an aloe based, the oil based would work best.

After they have done their best in completing their morning routine and before they head out the door; look at your beautiful child/tween and remind them how beautiful they are inside and how gorgeous or handsome they are outside! They’re only a tween once! Make these years an easy transition you’ll both enjoy.

Love Power!

Natural Hair is Natural Skin

I love the fact that so many wooly haired women have turned away from chemical based products to claim their beauty. So why shouldn't your skin care follow the same principle? Well, it should.

Your hair is in fact an extension of the skin. The hair acts like a vehicle into the pores of the skin. What you put on your hair has the ability to be absorbed into the skin and into the bloodstream. Now that you are aware of this fact begin to consider changing your skin care and hair care products to a more natural and organic composition.

Royal Nubian Skin Care is a natural apothecary with the ability to custom formulate for the skin and hair. Whatever conditions you are experiencing with your skin or hair Royal Nubian can create products to beautify you without chemicals to hinder your progress.
