As humans, it is our nature that our endurance level is either sparse or limited, which is why we want everything to work miraculously with the blink of an eye. Take acne for instance – women skip through treatments to treatments as a hope that they might find a genie inside a skincare product, which would magically vanish their zits in a night so and grant them with a flawless skin the next morning.
People take acne more personally than they should – from locking oneself inside the room and awkwardly hiding face behind their hands every now and then to constantly looking at reflection in the mirror and wish that all the zits would automatically disappear depicts how terrible acne makes us feel.

Sick of zits? Us too!
And apparently so is the rest of the world because the industry continues to come out with even more products.
Now, let me preface this all by saying that we’ve reviewed Exposed Acne Treatment before (check it here!) and thought it was a pretty bomb product.
But we wanted to dive a little deeper and give you even more insight into what this product has to offer. Because let’s be real for a second — ain’t nobody got time for zits. [Keep Reading]

Getting tattoos is a great way to let your creativity shine and show the world a little bit about yourself and what you stand for without having to say a word. However, there is a healing period that follows once the ink is embedded beneath the skin.

I think it’s pretty darn safe to say that the majority of people take great pride in their appearance. Maybe not alllll the time (seriously, you should see me hungover!), but when it comes to aging and environmental damage that can be done to my face, I take that sh*t seriously.
And like me, other beauty babes around the world really want something that can help with this too. [Keep Reading]

Since Botox was first approved by the FDA in 2002, there has been a proliferation of facial injection products that help keep us looking young. These products fall broadly into two classes – neurotoxins and dermal fillers.
Neurotoxins include Botox and two competitors, Dysport and Xeomin. These products relax the frown lines between the eyes, the crow’s feet on the sides of the eyes and the horizontal wrinkles above the brow. They smooth away fine lines and wrinkles by relaxing the muscles that cause them. The results will typically last 3-4 months.
Dermal fillers are a second category of injection products and they work very differently than neurotoxins. Whereas neurotoxins work to smooth wrinkles away by relaxing facial muscles around the eyes, dermal fillers replace fatty tissue and collagen that have been lost to the ageing process. [Keep Reading]

Our skin is the only outfit we never take off, and it needs to be cared for properly to keep its youthful appearance through the years. There are many habits you can take up that will protect your skin over time. Using sun protection when outdoors is a great first step is, and another one you might consider is eating for your skin.

Winter is here and before you know it your skin may feel dry, itchy and totally parched.
It’s just awful, but as someone with super sensitive skin and a gluten-intolerance I can tell you that not just any old skin lotion will make it better.
As the seasons change, I find my body’s needs change too. Simply put, I rotate my fave skincare products depending on the time of year. Going a little lighter in the summer (because who wants to feel oily) to full, deep moisture in the winter, I give my skin what it needs.
Now, if you’re anything like me and have a gluten sensitivity, you know it’s important to only use g-free products on your skin. And guess what beauties? This DIY gluten free body butter may be just what the doctor order this winter.

It seems like a crazy idea to slather sticky honey on your skin or pour beer on your hair. People will either think you’re into some kind of weird experiment or that you’ve lost your mind.

These strange, but surprisingly effective beauty fixes will resolve some of the most common beauty issues that you have. [Keep Reading]
