Don’t you just hate when your skin decides to hate your life and break out with pimples, dots, blemishes, zits…EVERYTHING!
Yea, me too.
There are so many factors that contribute to acne like your diet, hormone changes, sitting in sweaty clothes (oops!) and more. Keeping up with all the instigators and trying to avoid them can be a downright hassle.
Since I can’t spend my energy trying to fight acne all the time, there are regular precautions I take that just fit into my routine. One of them includes choosing the right skincare products.
Enter Exposed Acne Treatment. [Keep Reading]
Microdermabrasion is such a good technique for ridding your skin of nasty dead cells, acne-causing bacteria, scaly skin and everything else that might be preventing your best face from shining through.
Unfortunately, most spa microdermabrasion treatments cost a bundle and if you’re a beauty babe on a budget, then it simply isn’t affordable.
The good news is, there is an at-home micrdoermabrasion solution that is affordable AND works.
So what is it? Microderm MD. [Keep Reading]
Ok, so it seems like all I’m seeing over the interwebs lately is this shampoo (or lack thereof…) phenomenon called “No Poo.”
To be honest, the first time I saw a post on my Facebook about someone sharing their ‘no poo’ story I was aghast. I mean, really people – no one needs to hear about your bathroom activity.
BUT, then I realized they were talking about shampoo….thank goodness!
You see, we’ve known for a long time that many of our fave shampoo brands are full of nasty ingredients. Chemical ingredients. Toxic ingredients.
So why the heck do we continue to use them? Is it because we didn’t realize there was a more natural shampoo alternative or because it’s just so damn easy to buy one and ignore the ramifications? [Keep Reading]
Cellulite. Ugh, the bane of every beach goers existence.
Cellulite is one of those things that has been plaguing women for ages. To be honest, it is a common part of life, but with the gossip rags splashing it across their covers and shaming even the fittest of celebrities for having it, it’s no wonder us common folk are pulling our hair out trying to find a solution.
You see, cellulite is formed due to an imbalance between the connective tissue and fat in your body. The problem is, no one knows for certain what the cause is. Some say lack of exercise, poor health, while others say genetics or hormones. Yikes.
With the cause so unclear, it’s hard to target the problem but let’s give it the good ol’ college try with these 3 uncommon cures for cellulite. [Keep Reading]
Awww summer. Isn’t it just the best time of year?
With summer just around the corner and bikini season fast approaching, it’s time to start prepping your skin. You know, those layers of dermis you’ve been hiding under layers of clothing all winter long, hiding from sunshine and depriving of a solid Vitamin D kick *wink wink* [Keep Reading]
When I was a young girl I loved my nails. They were long, strong and beautiful. They could withstand the harshest of environments – ie. aggressive games of basketball and volleyball.
I would spend hours grooming them. Shopping for the perfect shades and right combination of sparkle to base ratio. Filing them to perfection and then meticulously applying the polish. Heaven forbid one chipped or broke.
Thinking back, it’s overwhelming how much time I spent on my nails.
But I digress. Fast forward a solid decade, a full time job and all those other adult responsibilities and I barely have time to think about my nails. That was until I happened upon some of the hottest nail trends for spring 2015. [Keep Reading]
Want to make your own anti aging cream? Yep. Well good news – It’s possible and very doable.
DIY is becoming a popular option for many people due to the obvious benefits you can get from it, like knowing the exact ingredients that are used and being assured that the right process was done in order to achieve perfect results, as it was of course you who made it!
The best part of DIY that everybody loves is the savings that you can get from it. Using DIY products is definitely way cheaper than using store-bought items found in stores….and who doesn’t love some solid savings? [Keep Reading]
There two different kinds of people when it comes to celebrating birthdays; 1 – Those who are epicly excited and make a big fuss of it, or 2 – Those who loathe and fear it, while simultaneously cursing themselves for not taking better care of their skin.
I most definitely fall under the first category.
The thing about aging is that we have to be more conscious of how we treat our body because every night out and hungover morning adds to the fine lines and wrinkles. [Keep Reading]

It is believed that the aboriginals of Australia have been using tea tree essential oil for ages and that it has cured many skin problems with great success. This includes minor skin issues like cuts, bruises and major infections caused by microorganisms such as virus, bacteria and fungi with efficacy and safety.
The truth is, there are various skin benefits of the magical oil. Found in Southern Australia this oil is extracted from the tree Melaleuca alternifolia.
The benefits of tea tree essential oil have long since been applied to skin care. Even better, there are several simple (and cheap!) ways you can take advantage of this essential oil yourself. [Keep Reading]
How do you know if a vegan, a crossfitter or a lawyer walk into a bar? They tell you about it – ha ha!
Ok, kind of lame, but I feel like I can get away with it because at one point I was vegan (lasted 2 whole months!), studied at law school (halfway to being a lawyer) and I am currently an avid crossfitter (is the WOD up?).
While I know that vegans, crossfitters and the like get a bad rap for spouting their preferences, that’s not what today’s post is about. Actually, it is simply a coincidence that this bad ass recipe also happens to be vegan. Whether your veg or not, this DIY is bound to be one of the best fake tanner recipes you’ve tried yet.
