Get Your Skin Ready For Fall

Hello everyone, it has been a while since I communicated.  Now I’m back after a long summer break.  Summer a great time to kick back, relax, and have fun.  Now with the wonderful activities that came with summer, other things that are not so good for us followed with the territory.  Things like, extreme sun exposure, resulting in aging skin, sun spots, and sun damage just to name a few. In some extreme cases you can increase the risk of getting skin cancer.  We hope that you were diligent with your skin care routine this summer and provided much protection from the sun.  While the sun rays felt good we don’t what for your next seasons to be consumed by spending time and money in expensive skin repair products.

We want to stay hopeful that over exposure to ultraviolet (UV) rays didn’t damage many elastin fibers and collagen tissue found in the skin.  Otherwise, we would have a serious case of lose, saggy, and stretched skin.  Don’t be alarm! We will show you natural ways to restore your skin to a healthy state using natural, organic ingredients to nurse it back to health. I say, “It is now time to get your skin ready for fall!”

Indulge with SKIN CANDY: Our Story

These past two years I have been on a quest to find my happiness.  I didn’t know that this endeavor would take me to a place of faith, soul searching, and healing.  With all that came a lifestyle change, love, struggles, art, and PEACE.  Through all that Skin Candy a bath and body line was born assembled from organic products in the process of becoming completely organic.  This product own by Stylish Party Ideas has been therapeutic for me. Increasing my creativity to new heights.  Allowing me to become self confident and believing that I can do anything in Greatness.
 After teaching many crafting classes using different mediums in our SPI Art Studio.  Skin Candy a sister company of Stylish Party Ideas was created.  With endless possibilities, no money nor resources I had to tap into my new found faith for deliverance.    With plenty of ideas, no product, no customers but a dream of incredible possibilities my husband and I embarked in this journey with no idea where the road would lead us.
Mad community support  has come to the rescue and many donations of recyclable items make their way to our shop daily.   Being a person of faith I say the LORD is proving for us each and everyday.  After six months of self employment and still working this dream.  I’m thankful for the present moment.  Now I can see that our possibilities are endless and my dream it so much smaller than what the CREATOR has in-stored for us.
Through this journey came the need to self cleanse.  Trying to eat healthier and live a better life I found myself revisiting old habits of seeking organic products, aromatherapy, herbal remedies, and all around wellness. I know we still have a long way to go.  But through this quest of happiness I found a new passion for taking care of myself, my body, and my environment.  That’s how I came to the art of soaping.  Through the ART of DIY in our SPI Art Studio I found myself handcrafting soaps and body products concocted from organic herbs, flowers, oils, and spices. These blends are specially designed to nourish and treat your skin providing much needed TLC. Through this journey as I educate myself I promise to share my knowledge with others.  I pledge to find old ideas to do new things for the betterment of ourselves, our body, and our environment.  I hope you find this journey as joyful as we do.  Come and experience the great gift of nature.  Indulge with Skin Candy give your skin a sweet treat today.
