People have been using various natural ingredients to lighten their skin for thousands of years, going back to the Ancient Egyptians.
Some of these homemade remedies work, and produce noticeable results if you’re just looking for a mild change to your skin tone.
You can make your skin lighter without spending a lot of money, or using powerful chemicals, but it won’t happen overnight.
That’s not to say that all homemade remedies are safe, for example in Elizabethan England, women and men used to whiten their skin with Ceruse—a dangerous combination of vinegar and lead. [Keep Reading]

I wouldn’t say I’m accident prone, but I sure have a lot of scars.
In grade 8 I caught my left middle finger ring on the side of my school bus and it sliced my finger so deep, the scar is still evident to this day.
After a lovely Thanksgiving ravaged by Chicken Pox, I managed to come away with minimal scarring except for one noticeable bit on my right eyebrow.
Interested in swimming with the sharks? Don’t worry about them biting you, it was a trigger fish that took a chunk out of my foot and left me marred.
Again, I wouldn’t quite call this accident prone, just unfortunate. [Keep Reading]
I think that the cooler months are the perfect time to think about whitening my skin. This may have something to do with the fact that I’m from Canada and we rarely see the sun during the long winter months. On the other hand, it could also be that summertime induces the desire for tanned, glowing skin.
For those of you that yearn for lighter skin regardless of the time of year, then you’ll still appreciate this post.
I’m going to share a home remedy for skin whitening that I developed using safe, natural ingredients. But first, I’m going to bust 3 common myths about skin whitening for you. [Keep Reading]
The battle against cellulite is constantly ongoing, and today is no different. Those dimpled derrieres, puckered thighs and cottage cheese tummies are about to be blasted into the stratosphere with the wealth of awesome I’m about to share with you.
Now while cellulite may be a result of genetics, poor eating or lifestyle choices, etc., there are ways you can ditch the derriere dimples and do it naturally. One of my favourite (and cheapest) involves the use of a few essential oils.
Yes. Essential oils. And yes, they work. [Keep Reading]
Who here loves Halloween?
I do! I do! V? Does not!
There’s a few reasons why I love this frightful holiday. One, it is the day after my birthday which means I’ve just been spoiled and therefore in a very good mood.
Two, dressing up as an adult is hella better than doing it as a child because your parents can’t force you to wear that puff winter jacket that turns your adorable princess costume into a fat princess disaster. Seriously, have you ever seen a fat Disney princess? No? I didn’t think so! [Keep Reading]
Oh, aging. How you burn my soul.
Yes, I know there are several anti-aging products on the market and a gajillion home remedies, but if I’m being real—and I always am!—I just wish we could avoid the whole aging process altogether.
Since that’s never going to happen I might as well get to the point; but first a quick story…
A few days ago I landed in Chaing Mai, Thailand to catch up with V and avoid a bit of that cool Canadian weather. It took me all of one day to see how healthier this Thai lifestyle is. [Keep Reading]

Ohhh excitement! My Trophy Skin BlueMD finally arrived in the mail. I won my unit in BES’s online giveaway and have no obligation or incentive to write a review or say anything about it, but I wanted to give you the 411 and share my BlueMD review!
So allow me to indulge, won’t you?
I have normal skin with oiliness on my nose (oilier in summer), medium pore size larger on my nose and cheeks, a few blackheads and pale olive skin.
My skin is very acne prone – lots of little hard bumps that run really deep, never come to a head, and don’t go away for months and months. Once in a while I get a big ugly mountain bump which is an ouch.
Chronic acne… the fun goes on for years! [Keep Reading]
If you’ve ever partied so hard you couldn’t physically crawl your way to the bathroom and wash off your makeup, then this one’s for you.
Now, I’m not condoning hectic partying; I’m just being realistic. Sometimse it gets the best of us. If you’re not a partier, then perhaps you’re just a lazy Lucy and couldn’t be bothered to wash off your makeup. I also don’t condone this. Tsk Tsk!
Having a good eye makeup remover is seriously underrated. For the aforementioned scenarios, or say Halloween, it’s essential to clean off that makeup and keep your pores clear.
Heaven forbid you break out, but not properly washing off makeup, especially eye makeup, can lead to infections and puffy eyes. Ick. [Keep Reading]
