Sir Isaac Newton once said “What goes up, must come down.” He demonstrated this by tossing an apple in the air and catching it. Ladies, we demonstrate it in a much different way; wilting skin, drooping breasts, sagging tummy. Aren’t we lucky?
While common remedies have included going under the knife or getting an injection or two, I’d rather try something a little less conventional. Something a little more natural and if I’m being frank; something a helluva lot more budget friendly.
There are 3 techniques that when used together, form the hat trick of homemade face lift solutions. [Keep Reading]
If you spend as much time as I do surfing the web, then you can understand just how many great tid bits of knowledge are out there. It can be a bit overwhelming, especially when you want to share it all.
Instead of passing over awesome ideas when it doesn’t apply to my work at hand, I’ve decided to bookmark, go back and post about it every other week. Besides, us skincare- loving ladies need to stick together!
This past week I came across some pretty fun and funky skin care tips that cleared up some fads and fibs I’ve been hearing about lately. Hope they help you out too! [Keep Reading]
We already know there are several products you can slather onto your skin to help slow down the aging process. Hell, there are even foods you can eat to kick it into low gear - my favourite way to battle aging. *wink*

This week’s post is about to be a bloody mess…no, literally.
If you haven’t seen that wickedly horrific photo of Kim Kardashian with a blood-stained face then you have been living under a rock, my friend.
A few weeks ago Kim K. tweeted about her Blood Facial, aka. the Vampire Facial treatment.
When I googled it, not much information was available. What I understood was that basically a doctor takes a small sample of the patients own blood and injects it into their face. Somehow, this is supposed to reduce the look of aging. [Keep Reading]
Scars come in all shapes and sizes. They can mark your face or body; they have no preference. The good news is however, the quicker you start to treat your scars, the more likely you will succeed in making them disappear.
Back in February, V shared a Quick and Easy Homemade Scar Treatment with you. It detailed the how, the why and of course, the quick fix so I won’t bore you with redundancy. Instead, I will regale you with a bevy of even more natural scar remedies so you too can have perfectly unmarred skin! [Keep Reading]
It may look like dessert, but it’s not! What is it? Well, it’s a simple and cheap way to shed the years off your face.
I mean, let’s face it – nobody wants to age, but since we can’t avoid it we might as well do it gracefully.
There are literally thousands of products on the market, all claiming to be your ticket to younger, brighter looking skin. Sadly, most of these products are ripe with chemicals and toxins (seriously, who wants that on their face!) and often times don’t work.
It’s my firm belief that if something is safe and healthy to eat, then it is more than okay being smeared on my face.
Sounds a little outrageous, but the theory behind it holds true. That which is good for your body, should be good for your skin. This is why I dig DIY’s so much.
So yeah, I promised you a potent and homemade anti aging mask and I intend to deliver. [Keep Reading]

Give your daily beauty routine a boost by incorporating these 5 spices into your diet. [Keep Reading]
Not too long ago V helped you fight against pesky under eye circles by delivering some seriously effective DIY tricks and educating you on the causes.
In between then and now, I realized that sometimes there’s just nothing you can do to stop those dark circles from making an appearance.

If you’re a regular around these parts you know my husband and I decided to pack our life into two backpacks, move to Thailand and really kick off married life how we always dreamed.
We’ve both been pretty good at living with few material things and keeping only those items with sentimental value which is why Asia and it’s lax-lifestyle seemed so perfect for us.
When I was initially packing my backpack I found it hard to fit in all my beauty and skin care products. I would rearrange and re-organize, trade a pair of shorts for a tube of lotion and all because I couldn’t seem to give up these products.
I wish I was kidding.
You take pride in your face. Not only have you worked hard to clear your acne, moisturize daily, exfoliate regularly and do everything else I suggest, but you’ve changed your diet and lifestyle as well.
Something just doesn’t look right though. After a quick inspection in the mirror you realize the problem; your pores are the size of saucers. Eek!
Those little openings that allow your sweat, toxins and oils to secrete from are enlarged and in charge. There are several reasons why this could be happening to you, so let’s take a quick look at why and how to tighten pores naturally, shall we?
