They’re not the star of the show at the salon. They don’t require much maintenance. In fact, you may not consider cuticles at all, unless they get in the way of your perfect polish job. But the truth is, these unsung heroes of the hands play an important part in keeping nails healthy and beautiful. So before you pick up the clippers, try these tips to give your cuticles the TLC and treatment they deserve.

Eyebrows – you may not think about them all too often, but when they’re long overdue for a little maintenance, it’s hard not to notice! With a little planning, trimming and plucking, you can easily perfect the shape of your brows, without having to visit a pricy salon. Just follow these steps:
You can be runway-ready—hair glossy and flowing, makeup perfectly set, impeccably painted nails—but if you miss this single most important step in your beauty routine, all efforts are lost. Even the most gorgeous-looking, glamorous woman won’t turn a single head if she stinks.
Deodorant may not be your idea of a beautifying essential, but without a good one, you’re not going to feel very pretty. The uncomfortable wetness, the ovals of evidence under your arms, the creeping scent that worsens as the day drags on—just thinking about it is enough to make you sweat.
Fall is here – and temperatures are falling, too. Because cold weather can leave your skin (and lips) feeling dry and cracked, it’s important to moisturize, moisturize, moisturize! If you don’t want to get left out in the cold, do yourself a favor this fall and don’t leave home without lip balm. Because let’s face it – nobody wants to pucker up with parched lips.
Hair has it pretty rough, when it comes to beauty. With all that washing, blow drying and flat ironing, not to mention highlighting and color treatments, it’s no wonder your tired tresses are ready for a trim after six short weeks. If you wait longer, those straggly strands start to rebel. Smooth and shiny becomes frayed and frazzled, making hair harder to style and keep in place. At the bottom of it all—split ends sprout, traveling up the shaft and leading to that look we all dread the most (aaack…not frizz!).
At the end of a long day, you know what you need to do: take it off, take it all off. I’m not talking about your clothes (although you probably don’t want to go to bed fully clothed.) I’m talking about your makeup.
Cosmetics might make your eyes pop and your lips shine during the day, but if you don’t remove every speck at night, you could end up clogging your pores and getting blemishes. Of course a new breakout will mean needing to cake on more concealer the next day, giving you more to remove at night or else risking more blemishes the next day. It’s a viscous cycle!
It’s time to stop the madness. Here’s a guide to removing makeup the right way, and also a shortcut for those nights when you get home late and just want to collapse in bed—and worry about the mascara smudges on the pillow in the morning.
Is it just me, or is the color orange flooding the atmosphere a little early this year? Not that I’m complaining. I’ll pin pumpkin recipes and share cute costume pics all September long—then get crafty (or at least imagine I will) come October. But when it comes to my beauty routine, autumn’s early invasion goes beyond the usual social pinning, liking and…dreaming.
