Warm weather is finally here, and summer is just within arm’s reach. After the long, cold winter we had, many of you are probably ready to bust out the swimsuits and soak up a hefty dose of vitamin D. I don’t blame you! But before doing so, here’s your gentle reminder that the intense UV rays of the sun can cause sunburns, wrinkles, age spots and cancer-causing free radicals.
There was a time when many of us would have shuddered at the thought of slathering oils on our face willingly. For the last decade, most consumers would go out of their way to find products that were oil-free. We’ve been told for years that any product with oil will instantly clog pores, leading to recurring breakouts and general discomfort.
The fact is: your face and skin love oil, and need oil to stay healthy, hydrated and clear of troublesome issues.
Long eyelashes and full brows can have quite an impact on looks. They’re a classic feminine trait and have such an amazing ability to completely transform the face, which is why a fuller fringe is so often sought after. But many women, like myself, struggle with thinning lashes and eyebrows. While we can turn to mascara, falsies or even extensions, it’s never really the same, is it? Before digging deeper into remedies, I think it’s important to first understand why we’re losing them in the first place.
If you are anything like me, you like a simple and natural makeup look. We’ve all seen the videos. You know, the ones boasting twenty-something steps to contour perfection using dozens of different products and brushes. My reaction is always the same. While the end result can be beautiful, who has the time? and she looks like a different person!
Sensitive skin can be overwhelming. I’ve always had issues with mine, and it has become even more unpredictable with age. This has resulted in an unfortunate, long list of products and solutions that don’t work for me, but, thankfully, also a short list of those that do.
