As seasons change, so does the way your skin and hair react. I’ve found that warmer climates suit my body better. My hair looks lush, my skin soft and supple.
In the cold, harsh winter weather…well…that’s a completely different story. My hair gets brittle and frizzy, and my skin puckers up with dehydration. It’s not pleasant.
And while I could go on and on about dry skin, we’re talking winter haircare today. [Keep Reading]

Remember the day you failed to brush your leather shoes with some nice polish for a few days? What happened to them? Chances are you found the all cracked up and was even painful to wear. Same is the case with your life.
Lips are one part of the body that always mesmerizes. The thing is unlike the skin covering most of the rest of the body, lips do not have melanin to protect them from sun’s rays, which cause tanning. They also have no oil glands to rejuvenate them in harsh conditions. As such, I would say it is one vulnerable area when neglected.
If you don’t pay the much-needed attention to them they become dry, chapped and in worst case – itchy. You don’t want that now do you? [Keep Reading]

Let me be brutally honest for a moment – cellulite does not discriminate.
You can be young, old, healthy or not so much and still see the telltale signs of cellulite.
Now, while you can experience cellulite at any age, it is more likely that you’ll start seeing even more of it with age. Why? Because as we age our skin and body change a lot. More specifically, as we get older our skin becomes thinner and our connective tissue thickens. This combination makes cellulite a helluva lot more noticeable.
Did we mention that the average woman also loses approximately 5 lbs of muscle and gains 15 lbs of fat each decade? In the not-so-wise words of Juan Pablo (raise your hand if you’re a Bachelor fan!!!) – AY YAY YAY.
With those scary stats you’re going to want to do everything you can to really target your trouble zones and we’re here to help. Here are 3 moves that target cellulite…and you’re going to want to add these to your daily routine! [Keep Reading]

Some people see their scars as proof they endured excruciating pain or accomplished an extraordinary feat. However, scars can also bring back painful memories or cause our self-esteem to diminish. There are variety of creams and lotions available that claim to diminish scars or make them vanish completely.

Just like the hair on your scalp, the growth of your eyelashes occurs naturally in cycles. Your genes play an important role in determining the growth of your eyelashes, both in length and thickness.

While these damages are difficult to reverse, there are certain ways to protect and condition your eyelashes to enable them attain their full-length potential. This is only achievable if you spare some time for regularly treating your eyelashes with the following tips. [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]
