Acne sucks. There, I said it. You know it, I know it, heck even the acne knows it!
Yet it’s a skin condition that continues to blight us, even when we leave behind our teenage selves and think we just might be getting closer to being an adult.
Wait, maybe I’m being too harsh, could acne be telling us something about our health that we shouldn’t ignore?
Yes, your facial acne could actually be telling you something about the general health of your body. [Keep Reading]
I know that true beauty comes from within, but sometimes you need to work on the outside to better the inside. Yes, I know this sounds vain, but after I explain myself I have a feeling you’ll be agreeing.
You see, cellulite isn’t so beautiful and it builds from the inside out. To tackle it from both ends, sometimes you gotta start on top.
Ehrmmm, suppose that last bit could be taken the wrong way. Remove your head from the gutter and hop back on my cellulite-fightin’ bandwagon! [Keep Reading]

Remember the situation when you just woke up one morning and couldn’t figure out why your face had become your worst enemy overnight, bursting with pimples and acne?
Yes, I’m sure we’ve all been there. And then we rush to the nearby store, spend money on skin cleansers, masks and what not, but still, little or nothing changes—our skin is still full of red spots.
Well, perhaps many of us have been barking up the wrong tree.
Now, certainly there are things we cannot change, such as genetics, but there are some everyday habits that can easily be avoided. Like food. Or more specifically, foods that cause acne.
But before we get into that, let’s stop for a moment and consider some facts about acne… [Keep Reading]
Yooohoooo. Hey boyyyssss!
That’s right. Over here. I’m focusing on you today!
It seems the tides have been changing a bit and men are becoming more comfortable with browsing the skin care aisles.
Having a somewhat more metrosexual society, it’s a lot more common to hear about men taking care of themselves and enjoying a manpering moment here and there.
From moisturizing to manscaping, men are taking a bit more pride in their appearance.
Lucky for us ladies, because although we love a rugged exterior, your over-calloused hands do not feel nice against our delicate skin. [Keep Reading]

I had terrible acne for almost 15 years. Then one summer, I cleared it for good. And it was ‘effing awesome!
One problem though: The scars.
Really!? Really??!! I suffered with acne for fifteen years only to clear it and be stuck with these terrible marks on my face? I was so upset.
That being said—part of my journey to clear my acne involved using food to clear my skin. I drank a ton of green juices, added in five thousand veggies a day (not really, but kinda), stopped eating gluten, dairy, meats (plus a few other things) and my skin freaking bloomed.
So naturally, when I was looking for acne scars home remedies, I looked to food first. [Keep Reading]
Dark under eye circles in your younger years are expected. Late nights, poor food choices and allergies all play a part, but what about under eye wrinkles?
Yes, we’ve all heard about crow’s feet. Those darling little wrinkles that begin to form from too much smiling (we hope!) and the general wear and tear of using our eyes on a regular basis often start cropping up in our 20′s. Just because nature says it’s time to wrinkle, doesn’t mean we have to go with it.
So what are some tips on how to get rid of wrinkles under your eyes?
Well, inevitably I’m going to end up giving in and using a high quality under eye serum to help rid me of those wrinkles, but for now I’m going au naturale. Would you expect anything less of me? [Keep Reading]
I always see my girlfriends out buying the latest, ridiculously priced facial mask—and every time I can’t help but think: why?
I have long been a convert to natural, homemade face mask recipes: they work just as well—or even better—than anything available on store shelves, they’re quick to make and don’t contain any of those harmful chemicals that damage your skin in the long term. [Keep Reading]
It appears as though I’ve been holding out on you guys!
I frequently write guest posts for other sites and have been the queen bee of banishing blackheads. After a recent dig through our very own archives I realized that I haven’t shared that wealth of knowledge with you!

I figured it was time to rectify that so today I’m going to be sharing with you my top 3 homemade blackhead removal tips so you too can live free and clear! [Keep Reading]

Turmeric is a popular spice in India and you won’t find any house without it. It has been used in India for thousands of years and is a major part of Ayurvedic medicine.
It was first used as a dye and then later for its possible medicinal properties. It is believed that a pinch of turmeric in your food everyday prevents various life threatening diseases.
It plays a vital role in almost every Indian cuisine. It has been a proven and time tested home remedy as antiseptic for any small cuts or burns.
It is also a very important part of homemade granny’s beauty solutions. These days its benefit has been very well utilized by the top cosmetics brands that boast of turmeric as one of their key ingredients. [Keep Reading]
Some mornings I wake up, look in the mirror and wonder what the hell happened to my skin. There’s circles under my eyes, a blemish or two and my overall skin just looks sullen and lifeless.
In fact, as I type this I am experiencing all of these terrifying symptoms.
For the past few weeks I’ve been hopping on and off planes literally every 2 days. It’s been hectic and fun, but clearly I’m not giving my skin the TLC it deserves. Sleepless nights, time zone changes, subsequent jet lag, poor eating and let’s be honest, a few too many glasses of wine are all playing a role. It’s just been one of “those” months.
Since my summer in flight is coming to a close, it’s time to get my skin back on track and what better way to do that than with some DIY under eye circle treatments and more importantly, some good face masks. [Keep Reading]
