The Fall & Winter Seasons are up next! For most people it is important to focus on the face; the focal point of your image. What about the body? It is ideal for your skin to look flawless but what about how it feels? Do you ever notice how dry & itchy your skin feels during the colder seasons?
A lot of people believe their moisturizing lotion and creams should do the trick. However, recent scientific studies discovered using lotions and skin creams can actually weaken your skin’s resistance to the elements and create a dependency on skin products. There are moisturizers that contain glycerin in the first 3 ingredients. This makes the skin feel moist because Glycerin is a humectant, which means it draws moisture to itself. The nearest source of moisture is actually the skin itself. Consequently, the cumulative effect of most skin care products is that of actually drying out the skin. The skin is the largest organ you possess and the body is self-healing and more independent than its given credit for. So the question is what is the best form of moisturizer?? It is never a bad idea to drink plenty of water no matter the season & use natural oils such as olive, moroccan, coconut or argon oil. Vegan and organic products are always a great choice when utilized for skin care. Stay warm stay soft!!

Eyebrows not only accentuate or enhance the eyes they convey your mood, beauty and style. There’s a trend of unnatural brows emerging and therefore altering the purpose of beauty enhancement.
Due to the obsession with perfection, there is a trend of over tweezing, waxing and or threading to have “ultimate” arch. Because of this trend, the concept of natural brows is slowly fading. Women are adopting stiff, pointy, virtually hairless eyebrows as the new standard. Typically this trend wears off and they desire a thicker brow. The good news is that there are corrective measures to achieve a natural brow look!
