New Year’s resolutions are notoriously hard to keep. Especially after January is over and the euphoria of the new year has faded.
Most of us make New Year’s resolutions because we want to be better. And being better (whether that means eating healthier, being a better sister, or saving instead of spending) is challenging. And sometimes, even taking small steps to changing your habits can feel so overwhelming that eventually, you just quit.
So how about starting 2018 on a positive, encouraging note that’ll last all year round?
These 3 beauty resolutions are guaranteed to not stress you out. Each of them takes five minutes or less from your day (if even that!) And the impact they can have on your life is astronomical.
Lately, the beauty industry has been obsessed with natural beauty products. The fresher and more natural, the better.
But if you’re more frugal like me, you’re probably thinking about trying to make your own natural beauty products. Oatmeal scrubs, avocado facials, milk & honey cleansers — many of those barebones organic beauty products are made from just a few ingredients that you can find at your local farmers market.
But before you start looking up DIY beauty recipes, here’s a few things you should know about both professional and DIY skin care — the pros and the cons.
When do women need beauty tips the most?
For some of you, beauty tips may be the most helpful when you’re getting ready for a night on the town. But for even more women, beauty tips are needed the most when you’re on the go and don’t have the time to put the extra care into your look. That includes the beauty tips for moms who have to chase around a toddler but still want to look their best. Or when you wake up with only ten minutes to get ready for work.
But not to worry. As your personal beauty industry insider, I know three quick, cheap, and easy tips that’ll boost your look in a pinch.
We all probably have bad skin habits to some degree. That’s because there are so many things that can influence the health of our skin, like environment, diet, lifestyle, even down to our little daily rituals in the morning when we get ready for work. And many of these things are outside of our control.
But if you find yourself wondering what to do about bad skin that just won’t clear up no matter what, maybe it’s time to change your habits. There are a few bad skin habits many of us have that can easily (or maybe not-so-easily) be broken. Here’s a quick list of the ten bad skin habits I see the most.
I’m always talking about how the skin care and beauty industry are dropping over processed products in favor of essential oils and all-natural ingredients. Many of us think that because something is “natural” it is automatically healthy and good for us. But that isn’t always the case. Using essential oils on skin correctly can make the difference between a clear, relaxed face and the worst sunburn you’ve ever had.
Using essential oils for skin care can be beneficial for those of us who tend to have normal or combination skin. But people with sensitive, acne-prone skin need to be more careful. Not to mention that using essential oils incorrectly on any skin type can cause you to suffer from a negative reaction.
Here’s what the skin care and beauty industry haven’t been telling you about essential oils.
Holiday parties can be nerve-wracking on their own, but having to plan a menu of heart-healthy foods for the holidays can seem almost impossible. Coming up with healthy holiday recipes for the entrees and appetizers is usually pretty easy, but what about desserts? What can you serve that your guests haven’t already had at a half-dozen other parties?
What if I told you that you could serve healthy holiday dishes that were so chic that your guests would never know how simple they were – or that they each had a health benefit?
Give these healthy holiday recipes a try this holiday season and you’ll never have to put up with another fruitcake again. You can thank me later.
