Everybody loves a great tan. With it you can bid goodbye to pale skin and say hello to a beautiful glow.
But to get it you have to spend minutes or even hours under the sun and risk damaging your skin. This is why so many women have turned to fake tanners to still get that glow without having to expose their skin to the sun’s killer rays. But even so, the harmful radiation from tanning beds or the hazardous chemicals found in sprays also have their negative effects.
So should we just stop tanning then? Definitely not! [Keep Reading]
Raise your hand if you have a scar on your body.
Could be it’s from childhood chicken pox, an unfortunate phase of cystic acne during puberty or simply walking into a tree….yes, this has happened to me before!
Whatever the reason behind your scar, the desire to get rid of it is there. After all, scars are only sexy in theory.
There is a big misconception that you can’t actually get rid of scars. To be clear, this isn’t necessarily true. Scars form when the deep, thick layer of skin (known as the dermis) is damaged. Your body will naturally begin to create more collagen fibers to help repair the damage and the resulting skin patch is your scar. The different texture and colour of your scar is what makes it more prominent.
There are so many ways you can help your skin repair scar damage and get back to its gloriously gorgeous original state, which is where today’s infographic comes in!
If you’re looking to say ‘See ya” to those scars then check out these Top 5 Ways to Remove Scars below!

Let me ask you a somewhat personal question; have you always been comfortable with the size of your breasts?
I know I sure haven’t.
Raised in an all female household (except for my poor father!) there were a lot of boobs. All 3 of my sisters had rather voluptuous racks and so did my mother. Yet, as I continued to age, my own buds did not sprout. To say I was disappointed would be an understatement.
As I entered my 20’s, it was clear that I was never going to grow a pair of lady lumps of my own, so I did what many women in this situation would do…some online research.
It was during one of my online quests that I discovered Naturaful. [Keep Reading]
Winter is a pesky bird both indoors and out. Chilly winds pull moisture from your skin when you’re outside, while indoors thermostats and hot showers scorch your skin and zap whatever natural oils you’ve got left.
The result: dry, flaking, cracking, peeling, red and generally uncomfortable skin. Even those of us with normal or oily skin can feel the negative effects of the winter months. Boo! [Keep Reading]

If you’ve ever had acne – and seriously, who hasn’t?! – then you probably have a scar or two from not being able to stop yourself from playing with that zit. For those of you who had more severe acne then you more than likely have acne scars. [Keep Reading]
