There’s been a lot of buzz around face oils lately, with claims that they can do everything from cure acne to remove of wrinkles. Some of these claims are a little overstated, but some are true.
While they might not be a miracle cure-all, oils can make a formidable addition to your skincare routine, regardless of your skin type.
They can strengthen your skin’s natural moisture barrier, give your epidermis an antioxidant boost, and yes, some of them can even prevent wrinkles.
So, if you want smooth, soft, glowing skin (and who doesn’t?), then follow these tips on how to use oils in your facial skincare routine. [Keep Reading]
Beauty is more than what you put on the outside, it’s about taking care of yourself from the inside out as well. That means feeding your body with nourishing foods and supplements that will keep you healthy, happy and conveniently, glowing!
Now, if you don’t already do it drinking hot water with freshly squeezed lemon is a great way to start your day. Not only does it rev your engine and refresh you in a way that your daily cup of joe cannot, but it reduces inflammation, flushes toxins and keeps your skin blemish free too. Not too shabby for a cup of warm citrus water, eh!
If you really want to kick it up a notch, then try our brand spanking new beauty boosting beverage recipe. [Keep Reading]
Ever wake up in the morning after a hella good sleep and STILL see dark under eye circles staring back at you in the mirror?
Lord knows I have. Sometimes they’re puffy and swollen too. Infuriating.
Unfortunately there are a million and one causes for under eye circles. Everything from allergies and hydration, to how much you sleep and genetics can play a role. Since we’re not superheroes, how does an every day damsel in distress find a way to ditch those dark circles without the super powers?

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]
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]
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]
If you’ve ever had your own garden, you know how much work goes into it. To make sure your plants grow good and healthy you have to pay extra attention to the earth. Even if you don’t have a green thumb, you probably know how important it is to till your land.
Tilling your land and raking it out allows the soil to become oxygen-rich so when you do plant your seeds, you are raising them in the best possible environment.
Wondering what the hell I’m talking about and how this applies to skin care? Well, the same principle applies to your skin. [Keep Reading]
Part of my beauty blogging duties involves me reading a lot of content. And I mean A LOT of content! Luckily, it’s something I enjoy so it doesn’t really feel like work.
All that time I spend researching, perusing and procrastinating gives me the opportunity to see some really amazing posts and articles. Since these awesome tidbits don’t always pertain to my task at hand, I find that they get passed over when they should really be shared.
Like that last bit of vegan lemon cheesecake *drool*, these amazing articles shouldn’t go to waste.
So, starting today I shall be spreading the love and passing a few of my faves along to you beauties. From the crazy and zany, the A-ha! moments and No Ways! to the THIS IS FAB; I’ll be sharing it all.
To kick this off, let’s talk Tips – as in the Top 5 Skincare Tips for this Week. [Keep Reading]
I hate acne as much as I hate long lines, whistling and non-all-you-can-eat sushi places. If you know me, you know this means I hate it A LOT!
I always found that the worst part about major acne breakouts was how difficult it was to conceal them without looking flaky, cake-faced and two-toned.
I know you are picturing exactly what I’m talking about. When girls choose the wrong shade of concealer and forgot to cover their neck (which is a total fail) and when they top it off with too much powder, they’re only drawing more attention to the problem area.
There is indeed a stealthier way to tackle both issues. After all, you can’t Photoshop your face in real life so we might as well do the best we can with the tools we’re given.
With that being said, let’s all learn how to conceal acne the right way so we don’t end up looking a fright the next time we breakout. [Keep Reading]
