You’re due for a little pampering, aren’t you, Bombshells? The school year has dragged on and you haven’t taken a single day off of work that didn’t involve someone having a fever or a sore throat. You’ve been running yourself ragged with science projects, quarterly reports and Quidditch matches in your living room. Late to bed and early to rise; stick a fork in you, you’re done.
It’s a good thing babies don’t wear black turtlenecks. Because if they did, all of the ones suffering from the extremely common condition called “cradle cap,” or infantile seborrheic dermatitis, would have yucky flakes on their shoulders. Cradle cap isn’t so different from grown-up dandruff and is characterized by flaky, dry skin or thick, oily scaling or crusting patches. It’s not very cute—but the good news is, it’s completely harmless.
It’s hard to feel like a Bombshell every day, especially when you’ve got things like work, cleaning and kids packing your schedule. Let’s get back to feeling sexy and ready to take on the world. I know you think you don’t have enough time in the mornings to do anything but put on makeup, but trust me, with these four simple products, you can transform yourself from bed-head to Bombshell in less than five minutes.
Forget a day at the spa! Create your own relaxing getaway at home with luxurious essential oils, soothing soaks and other brilliant bath supplies that melt away stress and leave you refreshed. Vitacost’s Bombshell Mommy blogger Abigail Blank shares her top pampering picks for the ultimate bath experience. Watch the video.
If it’s been one of those days (or weeks, or even months), more than just your nerves may be frazzled. From unkempt hair to gnawed-up nails, stress takes a toll on your appearance—not to mention the number it does on your insides. But I’ve got good news. You can tackle tension and tend to your looks in one easy step with these soothing, pampering products.
It may be cliché, but there is nothing like a good long soak in the tub after a long week of deadlines, fighting children, packing lunches and bosses with halitosis breathing down your neck. Create a “crappy week decompression kit,” also known as a collection of the finest lotions and potions to achieve the prefect bubble bath, and leave your worries behind.
You know that non-clumping mascara you love? That irresistibly tingly lip gloss? The puffy under-eye circle cream? They all have one thing in common: chemicals. All those dazzling effects come at a high price (and I’m not talking about sticker tags, here).
In order for many beauty products to work their magic, manufacturers add substances such as sulfates (which make extra-bubbly body washes), phthalates (for less-stiff hairspray), lead (to make lipstick “pearly”), parabens (to keep bacteria at bay) and fragrances (which may be concocted from a shocking number of chemicals, expertly blended to make you smell just like a fresh-picked flower).
