It’s 6:30 p.m. You just finished a grueling workout after an eight-hour day at the office. Sweat beads are stuck to your forehead, mascara’s streaming down your cheeks, and that foundation you put on this morning? It’s like it was never there. None of this would be a problem if you could hop in the gym shower for a quick cleanup. But that dinner reservation is at 7:00, and you’ve got to get moving—fast. Great news! There’s a wipe for that.
Lacquered nails is a regular part of my look. I love to have that pop of color or create a dramatic effect with my manicure. The thing is, nail polish, and most of the products that go along with my beloved manicure, are full of nasty chemicals and harmful toxins. So what’s a girl to do?
Luckily, we don’t have to give up our fancy fingers. There are plenty of awesome companies making safer versions of our favorite nail care products. From cuticle cream to polish remover, these products will give do the same thing as those hazardous salon products, without the health concerns.
Ahhh, a day at the beach. Show up pasty and plain and return home hours later with a rosy glow, streaky highlights and feet softer than they were after your last pedicure. If only there was a way to capture the beautifying benefits of the sun, sand and surf without having to book an island getaway. Oh wait—there is. Thanks to these ocean-inspired body skin and hair care essentials, you can feel beach beautiful no matter where you are, no matter what time of year.
Now that summer has faded to fall, little may be left of that lovely tan you earned exercising outdoors or spending time poolside when warmer weather was here. Sure, you’re bundling up in sweaters and scarves without much skin exposed—but that doesn’t mean you should forget about flaunting a healthy glow when the layers are peeled off. Sunless tanners are a safe, easy and inexpensive way to stay radiant all year round.
BB Creams are the newest miracle product to hit the beauty scene. First appearing in the Western beauty market only a short year ago, many traditional beauty Bombshells are still trying to understand why they’ve caused such a commotion. Let’s talk about the ABCs of BB creams and find out what they can do for you and your beauty routine.
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.
We’ve all been told a thing or two that we think is fact but in reality it is a rumor, a myth, a big fat lie. It happens. Your girlfriend hears it from her sister, who was told by a friend who saw it on TV, and it usually goes a little something like this: “So I just heard, you don’t have to wear sunscreen every day!” Yikes. Bad information can take you down a path you don’t want to go down, from bad food recommendations to an hour wasted watching some show your friend recommended. Sometimes fact and fiction just need to be separated.
