Watch out, Mark Zuckerberg. Kylie Jenner is hot on your trail.

In her new Forbes cover story, it’s revealed that the social media star, beauty mogul, and new mom is on track to become the youngest self-made billionaire, male or female, in history. Zuckerberg, now estimated to be worth more than $70 billion, went from millionaire to billionaire at age 23 with Facebook’s IPO. Jenner will turn 21 in August.

According to the feature, the company Jenner founded less than three years ago, Kylie Cosmetics, of which she is the sole owner, has amassed more than $630 million in sales. Currently worth $900 million (transcending older sister Kim Kardashian West’s estimated $350 million), her fortune, which includes proceeds from her TV show, endorsement deals, and after-tax dividends, is on track to hit the billion-dollar mark within the next year. An incredible feat, considering it started with a $29 Lip Kit that sold out in less than a minute in 2015, she told Vogue.

Yet, despite her eye-watering wealth and commercial success, she hasn’t forgotten how far she’s come. “Wow,” wrote Jenner on Instagram. “I can’t believe I’m posting my very own Forbes cover. Thank you for this article and the recognition. I’m so blessed to do what I love every day. I couldn’t have dreamt this up!”

Full Bush Is the New Brazilian! How to Transition Like a Pro

Full Bush Is the New Brazilian! How to Transition Like a Pro

September 15, 2018 3:32 PM

Editor by, Adetoun Adeyemo.

As if it needs to be said, the full bush is back. But the au naturale look is far more than a fad or trend resurrected from the ’70s. For many women in 2018, body hair has inherent social implications that run the gamut from more newfound self-love to fighting the patriarchy.

While Lillian Tung and Laura Schubert, cofounders of the pubic hair and skin company Fur, firmly believe that how much or little hair a women chooses to keep down there—or anywhere else—is a personal decision, they do agree that online platforms such as Instagram are furthering the conversation around letting it grow out. “With the rise of social media as a ‘filterless’ platform, women are becoming more comfortable discussing [their] body hair,” they explain. And Bea Feliu-Espada, founder of feminine-care brand The Honey Pot, also sees a correlation with shifting beauty ideals. “I think the strong movement towards body acceptance and positivity that has been swelling up for the past few years includes embracing your pubic hair in its natural state,” says Feliu-Espada.

It’s a pivotal shift that New York City–based holistic ob-gyn Dr. Eden Fromberg, who has observed fuller hair down below in her patients over the past few years, believes is a long time coming. “Women are becoming increasingly aware that our bodies are a lot more than the visual or sexual playthings that past cultural norms implied,” she says. “We want to express our diversity and power, live our preferences, and feel comfortable in our own bodies without judgement.” And just as important to Fromberg as shattering stereotypes is getting the point across that pubic hair isn’t dirty or unhygienic. “Pubic hair exists to protect our delicate areas and encourages a diverse and often quite healthy microbiome, which keeps us in balance while preventing infection,” she continues.

And while forgoing regular waxing or shaving for the first time in a long time can be liberating, it can also be uncharted territory for many women. From minimal grooming to gentle cleansing, here the experts weigh in on how to maintain the natural look.

 

Invest in Trimmer Scissors

While a buzzer for your bikini line can be handy, Fromberg recommends cutting pubic hair with small trimming scissors (“Not a scissor that you use to cut paper or things in the kitchen!” she cautions), as well as sterilizing the blades beforehand with alcohol. For better results, use a magnifying mirror, and if the hair is long enough, a fine-tooth comb can help hold it in place as you trim. If you prefer to shave simply to neaten the area, do so with a natural shaving cream, like Dr. Bronner’s Organic Shaving Soap, and be sure to disinfect the blade with a toner infused with witch hazel afterwards.

Exfoliate to Treat and Prevent Ingrown Hairs

Ingrown hairs can be par for the course no matter how you wear your pubic hair. “When it comes to keeping ingrowns at bay, exfoliation in the shower works wonders,” say Tung and Schubert. Fur’s Ingrown Concentrate is infused with moisturizing coconut oil and antibacterial tea tree oil to help banish bumps; it comes with an exfoliating finger mitt to help lift dead skin and trapped oil in special spots. For extra care outside of the shower, you can also massage the area with Cap Beauty’s Bikini Dry Brush to boost circulation and speed up any needed healing.

Cleanse Gently—But Not Too Much

“When you grow out your pubic hair, a healthy cleansing regimen is important as you may have more issues with sweating and hair can trap odor and bacteria,” says Feliu-Espada. She advises using a gentle pH-balanced feminine wash free of artificial fragrance, parabens, and sulfates, such as The Honey Pot’s Feminine Wash Sensitive. “Avoid soaping up your vulva, labia, or inside your vagina, which can cause drying and irritation,” says Fromberg.

Nourish and Soften the Hair

“Cutting and shaving pubic hair will make the ends feel more scratchy and bristly in texture, so [one of] the benefits of leaving pubic hair long is that it feels soft,” says Fromberg. But that doesn’t mean you can’t make the texture even silkier. Fur Oil is a cult favorite among many women—including Emma Watson—with its quick-drying grape seed, anti-inflammatory clary sage seed, and strand-softening jojoba oils, as well as its light citrus scent.

Let the Area Breathe

Another benefit of pubic hair is that it protects the skin against irritation from uncomfortable fabrics. That said, airing it out is important too. “Avoid tight clothing and let your pubic area breathe after a long day or sweaty workouts,” says Fromberg. And to that end, stay away from moisture-retaining synthetic fabrics and opt for organic cotton underwear, such as Skin’s organic cotton boy short briefs. A few adjustments to your regimen aside, you’ll find: The more pubic hair, the less to worry about.

Find out the New Breast Cancer Detection Device Can Identify Tumor Tissue in Under 5 Minutes

Find out the New Breast Cancer Detection Device Can Identify Tumor Tissue in Under 5 Minutes

By Adetoun Adeyemo. September 11, 2018 9:00Am

Breast cancer is the most common form of cancer in women worldwide with an estimated 1.7 million new diagnoses each year, according to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. A global health emergency, it’s that much more acute in developing countries where the majority of cases are identified in late stages. Which is why a new weapon in prevention is causing a global fervor. Known as iBreastExam, the FDA-cleared wireless handheld device can detect tumor tissue using new tactile sensing technology in under five minutes without causing pain or emitting harmful radiation.

As highlighted by The New York Times, the revolutionary tool is the brainchild of computer engineer and developer Mihir Shah, who recognized a dire need for early detection in India, where for every two women newly diagnosed with breast cancer, one will die. There, and in other developing nations across the world, the lack of access to early detection often comes down to the dearth of mammograms (attributed to their high cost) and a shortage of trained radiologists. And while incorporating iBreastExam technology into routine checkups globally could help the medical community zero in on the women that need it most, it could also play a pivotal role in early detection for countries at the forefront of breast cancer research, like the United States.

While Ari D. Brooks, M.D. and director of the Integrated Breast Center at Pennsylvania Hospital, underlines that the iBreastExam isn’t meant to replace or compete with mammograms, which remain the standard of care in the field, he acknowledges that it could serve as a more thorough precautionary measure in routine physical exams for women of all ages, especially those under 40 who are not eligible for screening. “If placed in primary care and ob-gyn offices, it could help document and augment the physician’s exam of a patient’s breast,” he explains, adding that it might also identify more women with findings worth sending on for mammogram and ultrasound evaluation. Additionally, this technology may help women and their doctors feel more comfortable during in-office breast exams. “Many women feel [lumps, but] they aren’t comfortable with their own self-exam,” explains Dr. Brooks. “Using the iBreastExam in the doctor’s office may help them feel confident that they do or do not feel something.”

And while Dr. Brooks acknowledges that on the flip side, it’s possible iBreastExam could lead to more “false alarms,” that is, use of ultrasound and biopsies for evaluation of benign conditions, he also cities the importance of a 2016 study published by the World Journal of Surgical Oncology, which concluded that the the tool demonstrated excellent sensitivity when identifying significant lesions that warranted further evaluation with diagnostic imaging.

Whether or not the iBreastExam becomes a doctor’s-office mainstay or not, there’s no denying that the technology is already having a significant impact in the fight against breast cancer, not just by making early detection easier for those who need it most, but by creating more awareness in how women can be more proactive in lowering their risk—and offering one more tool in the fight against this crucial disease.

Checkout The New York City Detox Shop Where Cryotherapy and CBD-Infused Smoothies Are on the Menu

Checkout The New York City Detox Shop Where Cryotherapy and CBD-Infused Smoothies Are on the Menu

 

August 10, 2018 10:06 AM

BY ADETOUN ADEYEMO

Clean Market, a new Manhattan wellness boutique, takes an inside-out approach, with IV drips and smoothies alongside organic skin care.

Picture a day spa, and you might imagine an ’80s movie heroine: hair swirled up in a towel, a plush robe tied around her waist, cucumbers on her eyes, and a pair of manicurists lacquering each set of talons. The apt word here is pampering, yes, but there’s an undercurrent of efficiency—all the beautifying rituals in a single place for maximum unwind. What is the present-day equivalent, then, in an age that prizes peak wellness? The answer might look something like Clean Market, a new health destination that just opened in Manhattan. Here, a leisurely visit could start with a subarctic blast in the cryotherapy chamber, then segue into an infrared sauna for a meditative thaw, and wind up in a lounge chair for a vitamin-packed IV drip. There are still robes (by Parachute); cucumbers, too—only those come blended into a made-to-order smoothie. CBD is optional. (And for sale.)

Lily Kunin—whose blog, Clean Food Dirty City, spawned a cookbook last year—is the creative force behind Clean Market.

“I really wanted to create an oasis that brought you away from the hustle and bustle of New York City and offered multiple wellness products and services under one roof,” says Lily Kunin, the health coach and mastermind behind Clean Market. A Los Angeles native who moved east this past January, she gives off an even-keel warmth that seems out of sync with someone putting the finishing touches on her first-ever storefront. What to ascribe it to? It could be the repeat doses of cryo (a perk of the job) that have left her with “more energy, better sleep, and a boost in mood,” she reports. Or the swirl of powdered RelaxMax—an Xymogen supplement designed for stress management—that she mixes into her water every morning. And then there’s the daily matcha, supercharged with grass-fed collagen, locally made cashew milk, and a rotating mix of adaptogens. “I’ve been feeling Moon Juice’s Power Dust these days,” she says, referring to the cult herbal blends out of L.A.; the brand has partnered with Clean Market for its first functional latte bar on the East Coast.

The shop’s neon sign doubles as a road map for the well-stocked supplement wall, which includes CBD tinctures, vitamin-C gels, and probiotics.

Following in Kunin’s health-minded footsteps is easy, because it’s all on offer. Up front, near the glowing neon sign that reads like a cosmic shopping list (Energy, Flow, check, check), begins the deep dive into ingestibles. There are familiar favorites, including Beauty Chef’s skin-boosting powders, tiny squeeze packets of Lypo-Spheric vitamin C, and glass vials of the marine elixir Quinton, along with jars of coconut butter from the downtown kindred spirit in wellness, CAP Beauty. But the prized cache here are the medical-grade supplements, which are backed by clinicals and can only be stocked by an M.D. (The storefront has a medical doctor on staff through NutriDrip, the in-house IV service.) Kunin rattles off a few essentials: the Metagenics PhytoMulti, B Activ by Xymogen, a forthcoming probiotic by Designs for Health “specifically formulated for your gut-brain axis,” she says, and a Thorne hemp oil so popular it’s back-ordered.

Across the room, takeaway meals by Daily Dose service the fitness-minded neighbors (SoulCycle on one side, Equinox on the other) and also echo how Kunin got her start in the health industry. After spending her teenage years grappling with crushing migraines and vertigo, she wound her way through traditional and alternative medicine before nixing gluten—a dietary change that, rather miraculously, worked. “That was the moment where I was like, Wow. What we do and what we’re eating and how we’re using our body has such an effect on how we feel,” she says. She launched a blog (Clean Food Dirty City), which spawned a cookbook (Good Clean Food), and got her health-coach credentials along the way—skills that all come together in the refreshing, deeply nourishing smoothie recipes served at the bar. The Majik takes its color cue from blueberries and E3Live; The Pines tempers the peppery anti-inflammatory roots turmeric and ginger with pineapple, mango, and coconut milk. But Kunin calls The Core her favorite: a quencher of a recipe designed for the inevitable heat waves ahead. Make it yourself with the how-to, below. Or swing uptown for a summer cooler—paired, if you’re so inclined, with a flash-freeze in the cryo chamber.

The Core smoothie, blended with hydrating ingredients like coconut water and cucumber, is a summer standby.

⅓ cup frozen banana

½ frozen pear

Handful of frozen baby kale

Innovative Best Hair Growth Products for Men & Women That Actually Work.

Innovative Best Hair Growth Products for Men & Women That Actually Work.

By Adetoun Adeyemo, January 13th, 2017

Thinning hair would be a minor disaster for most of us. Unfortunately, it’s a fairly common condition, even for women. But there are effective ways to slow down and reverse hair loss.

We’ve tracked down the best hair growth products to review for you here. In order to help you choose the best ones to maintain your mane, let’s first go over what causes hair to fall out in the first place.

What causes hair loss?

There are lots of things that cause hair to thin and fall out. Take a look at this list:

  • Medications
  • Illnesses like anemia and thyroid disorders
  • Skin problems like psoriasis
  • Genetic conditions like androgenetic alopecia
  • Chemical products like dyes
  • Age
  • Menopause
  • Stress
  • Overstyling
  • Sudden weight loss
  • Environmental conditions
  • Malnourishment or lack of essential vitamins
  • Too much Vitamin A
  • Pregnancy

If you are able to determine what causes your hair loss, you’re more likely to treat it successfully. An experienced hair stylist and a medical doctor may be able to help you decide if you don’t know the cause already.

How much hair loss is normal?

Hair typically grows about 6 inches per year. A person loses about 50 to 100 strands per day. Washing your hair can cause you to lose up to 250 strands at once, but not washing it doesn’t necessarily help stop hair loss.

Does hair ever stop growing?

Many people don’t know this, but hair can actually stop growing. But normally this is only about 10% of your hair at any one time. The other 90% is still getting longer.

There are three cycles to hair growth. The first growing cycle lasts from 2 to 8 years. Then that hair goes into a transition phase for two to three weeks. Each strand’s follicle shrinks. The non-growing phase is when your hair takes a break and rests for 2 to 4 months.

What about hereditary hair loss, like guys sometimes have?

Women can inherit a condition called androgenetic alopecia. About 30 million Americans suffer from this. Most of them are 50 or older, but some are only teens.

Androgenetic alopecia means that as hair falls out, the new hair that grows in will be thinner and finer in texture. As this progresses, the follicles are also getting smaller in size. In the end, the follicles stop producing new hair.

This condition is linked to a hormone imbalance caused by a testosterone derivative called dihydrotestosterone, or DHT. The level of testosterone increases in post-menopausal women. If it converts to DHT, the DHT binds to hair follicles and kills them. That’s why female pattern baldness usually strikes women over 50.

What is the best way to halt hair loss?

As we mentioned, just not washing your hair isn’t enough to stop hair loss. You’ll need to get to the root of what’s causing the problem, whether it’s a thyroid condition, another illness, or overuse of styling products and stress. The sooner you get help, the better your chances of stopping and reversing it.

Many doctors don’t like to prescribe pills to fix skin problems, they prefer topical treatments. Many doctors will tell you to try the one and only FDA-approved treatment for female hair loss, which is Minoxidil. This drug was invented to treat high blood pressure, but causes extra hair growth as a side effect. Someone figured out that instead of ingesting it, applying it to skin can make hair grow.

Research is showing that a 5% concentration solution of Minoxidil is more effective than 2%. Although to shows promise, keep in mind that clinical trials saw “moderate regrowth” in just 19% of the patients treated with it. No one had amazing success with it.

Another product that may slow hair loss is used in shampoos that fight dandruff. It’s called Ketoconazole. It slows down the damage that DHT does to hair follicles by reducing the production of testosterone. Although a 1% solution is easy to find, you’ll need a prescription to purchase the more effective 2% concentration.

What is the best way to grow more hair?

Hair transplants may work for some people, but if you have female pattern hair loss, that’s usually not an option. Indulge in Natural Organic products.

Besides those treatments, you can take vitamins, use light therapy, apply other kinds of natural topical treatments, and treat any illness that might be causing your hair loss.

Now let’s get into the best hair growth products, starting with vitamins that enhance healthy hair and skin.

Numbers Don’t Lie! Gab’s Fortune Worth More Than Dwyane’s!

Numbers Don’t Lie! Gab’s Fortune Worth More Than Dwyane’s!gabby

She’s famously known as NBA star Dwyane Wade’s wife, however, Gabrielle Union has proven she’s a savvy businesswoman in her own right.

She is a 45-year-old that doesn’t look a day over 30 and it turns out that Gabrielle Union is running one of the highest-earning companies in the country.

The beautiful actress secretly launched a skincare company last year and has kept quiet about her successful stint as CEO.

Gabrielle admits she purposely avoided publicly announcing her business because she wanted to make sure the company could stand on its own two feet.

“I was worried people would just associate it with my famous family and I felt as though that would be a huge disservice to the company. The products we produce really are life-changing and they deserve to be recognized on their own merit,” Gabrielle explained.

The product she’s talking about is Avila Ageless Serum which has taken the world by storm.

The product is repeatedly selling out within minutes and Gabrielle says her number one struggle as CEO is sourcing enough products to be able to adequately service the demand.

“We’re forever selling out. Whether it’s in stores or online, whenever we re-stock our customers buy out all the products within minutes.”

How Did She Come Up With Such An Amazing Product?

gab3

It appears as though her products have done just that, with numerous celebrities jumping on board and singing Avila Ageless Serum‘s praises.

“I use Avila Ageless Serum myself and a few of my friends started asking me what was responsible for the huge change in my skin. Word started spreading that way and before I knew it, we had amassed a huge celebrity clientele.”

CELEBRITIES LOVE Avila Ageless Serum

“Lately I’ve been getting more compliments than ever about how young my skin looks. It’s still so smooth and wrinkle-free, it’s the main reason people can’t guess my real age. I owe it all to Avila Ageless Serum. I had noticed fine lines creeping in but thanks to Avila Ageless Serum I was able to erase them within weeks.” – Beyoncé 

taraji

“I put a lot of effort into my appearance and I’ve experimented with so many skincare products that I’ve lost count. But I can safely say nothing works as well as Avila Ageless Serum!

What To Do If You Fall Asleep In Your Makeup

What To Do If You Fall Asleep In Your Makeup

By Editor, January 5th, 2018

I absolutely hate falling asleep with my makeup on. I despise it so much that. I want to assume everyone feels the same way — which I quickly learned was not the case. Fun fact: By wearing makeup to bed back then that I would wipe off my best friend’s lingering eyeliner while she slept.

Years later, not much has changed. Of course, I’m only human — a human who sometimes falls asleep on Saturday night between tossing off my shoes and taking a preemptive dose of Advil. In these rare cases, I make up for it with these handy peel pads.

By the time I wake up — in a cold sweat and panicking because I certainly did not drink enough water the night before, I might add— I race to the bathroom in search of my skin plan B (no, not that one). Enter: Neogen’s Bio-Peel Gauze Peeling Pads. These non-drying, exfoliating pads are so effective that within 10 minutes I can convince everyone that I successfully achieved a full eight hours of shut-eye — without the gross, dry, cakey, and irritated feeling of waking up in last night’s makeup.

About the size of my palm, these pads are the K-beauty secret you never knew you needed. Slip your fingers into the pad’s pouch and start gently sweeping it across your face — from forehead all the way down to your neck. The textured gauze pad not only (gently!) physically exfoliates your skin but uses lactic acid and lemon extract to chemically brighten and rejuvenate skin almost instantly. But it doesn’t stop there. Flip the pad over and use the softer, quilted side to give skin an added dose of the peel’s gentle magic. Rinse, then stare at your refreshed skin like you didn’t just greet the new day with your contour still intact.

While , Dr. Nazarian believes the worst culprits are oil-based foundations and primers, which are “less-breathable and more pore-clogging than other products.” And leftover makeup residue (especially of the oil-based variety) can also “inhibit the absorption of skin-care products by creating a barrier that prevents beneficial ingredients from penetrating the skin’s surface,” says Dr. Gross.

But every now and then we all slip up and fall facedown on our pillow in eyeliner, mascara, and whatever else. When that happens, Dr. Nazarian suggests you nip the effects of last night in the bud by effectively removing all traces of your makeup first thing in the morning — and doing a little damage control.

Moral of the story? Sleeping in any kind of makeup can have negative effects on the skin I can wipe away some evidence of last night’s events with a lemon-fresh peel pad.

Be Merry and Cheer To Your Skincare – Useful Tips To Follow In Winter

Be Merry and Cheer To Your Skincare – Useful Tips To Follow In Winter

By Editor, December 1st, 2017

We are now in December, and those temperatures are dropping letting us know that winter is upon us. Even though the weather can make the leaves fall it doesn’t mean your face has to fall with them.

I’m a Cosmetologist and a Blogger with an average budget to spend on skincare. I can’t afford the celebrity products, but I want to make the right purchases for my dollar to go the extra mile.

So I’m sharing with you my favorite Natural remedies for irritable skin, my favorite products that work, and the perfect foundation to for everyday use! I’m an everyday girl that wants my skin to look like an A-lister, and this is how I get it.

Natural Remedies For Irritable Dry Skin

1. Coconut Oil Is No Secret

After spending this last summer traveling the Baltic on a cruise ship, I developed extremely dry skin, and it’s only gotten worse since returning to the U.S. The seasons were changing, and I desperately needed a quick pick me up when I ran out of products on the ship.

My husband was working as a singer, so he used coconut oil periodically to help soothe his vocal cords. After several days at sea, my face became really dry that I needed something quick to relieve the flakiness and that’s where Coconut Oil became my best friend.

Coconut Oil is commonly used for cooking, but it’s also filled with nutrients as well medium fatty acids. It contains something called Lauric acid; a common nutrient in breastmilk.

These two nourishing qualities are the perfect combo for moisturizing your face. If you have oily skin, I would recommend using just a dime size, but for me, there are no boundaries to how much I put on.

2. Just Add Honey

Need a scrub to help with dry patches on your knees or feet? You can go all natural with sugar and honey scrub. You can even add a little milk or coconut oil to make it creamy and less dry.

Also, did you know that honey is great for preventing acne? Yes, really! It’s antibacterial which helps with acne prevention as well as anti-aging. You aren’t limited to just a scrub when it comes to honey.

You can also create a natural honey face mask.

Make sure to buy quality natural honey, anything else is filled with artificial sugars that could cause breakouts. Just add a little water and smooth it out upon your skin.

Leave it on for 15-20 minutes and feel the texture of your skin be as smooth as a baby’s bottom.

3. Got Milk? Try A Milk Cleanser

For years I have settled for a dehydrated face after I use of my daily face wash. Have you experienced that?

Your skin feels so tight like a rubber band, completely zapped of its natural oils. I knew this feeling all too well until I discovered milk!

Allure recently released some of their favorite moisturizing cleaners that I like the best; its milk-based cleaner with a blend of five skin conditioners to balance out your skin and give it life!

4. Eat Clean For Clear Skin

Cleaning up your diet can do wonders for your skin! As Americans, we tend to gravitate towards the sugary and high in fat foods that damage our bodies and our face. These low-quality foods cause blemishes, oily skin, skin irritations and the list goes on and on.

Toss out the cookie jar! Large amounts of sugar can cause your insulin levels to spike, therefore, causing acne breakouts and skin rashes that no one wants.

Throw out the potato chips and substitute them with foods high in Omega 3’s such as fish oil, seeds like sunflowers, and egg yolks to name a few.

Well known Dermatologist Jessica Wu says, “I tell my patients that what they put in their mouths is as important as the products they apply on their skin,” (dermatologist and creator of Dr. Jessica Wu Skincare)

Must-Have Budget Friendly Skincare Products

1. Belief Moisturizing Eye Bomb Cream

This blue little bottle contains hydrating ingredients like herbs, comfrey leaf, and lastly an elasticity-boosting pennywort herb. It cultivates fresh and radiant looking skin with a light yet effective moisturizer that blends into the skin easily.

I noticed an immediate difference when I first applied it to my under eye bags. I struggle with everyday puffiness under my eyes, and I saw a quick change in just a few days after using this eye bomb.

Wear it under your makeup as part of your daily skin routine or try it before bed after you use your toner along with your nighttime moisturizer.

2. Argan Milk Hydrating Treatment

I told you I drink milk! Well, my skin does anyway. I love this moisturizing complex. It’s full of purified water and argan oil that nourishes and revitalizes the skin.

It’s milky smooth with a thin yet effective consistency. I apply this one my face before bed a few nights a week and rotate it with another moisturizer for even more effectiveness

Argan Oil Benefits

3. Seaberry Face Oil

This is my second moisturizing tool that I use in conjunction with the Argan Hydrating Treatment. I even apply some every now and then on my hands and knees. Just a couple drops will do, and the oil will go a long way.

I grew tired of the lotion consistency and wanted something that would instantly give my skin life and hydration.

I steered away from oils for the longest time out of fear of becoming too oily but little did I know it was the secret to my dryness.

I have been using this oil with a combination of the Hydrating Treatment, and I’ve seen a huge difference. Now if your skin is naturally oily use less than a dime size of this product.

Awaken Your Skin And Look Younger With These Two Christmas Gift Ideas For Yourself Or Someone You Love:

1. Glow Pro Micro needling Regeneration Kit

This fancy needling product is hot on the market right now. It’s the home solution to your micro needling needs saving you big bucks on the expensive $1000 sessions.

I saw this beautiful product at Nordstrom’s and immediately started asking the sales lady questions. Does it hurt? Users say that it feels like the intensity of a face scrub.

How does it work? Its tiny 450 microtip needles work with an LED light to lightly puncture the skin ever so slightly to stimulate your skin’s natural collagen.

It’s been featured as an Allure beauty product winner as well. It also allows your current skincare products to be 200 X more effective giving them a new canvas to work on.

2. Mia 2 Cleansing System

Young Woman Splashing Water on Face

One of the first things my mom taught me as a teenager was never to use my hands to wash my face. First of all our fingers contain some of the highest concentrations of oil glands on our body, and then we touch our face with them!

At a young age I’ve been using a face cloth to wash my makeup off, but sometimes that can even be tricky. I saw the bachelorette Ali Fedotosky using this Cleansing System in a video on Instagram, and I was immediately fixated on getting one of my own.

It’s a sonic brush solution that takes off makeup six times better than the average routine. It a beautiful design that treats* dry skin patches as well as blemishes.

I hope that you can revisit your skincare routine this holiday season because heaven knows mom is going to want to take plenty of holiday pictures.

Find time to exercise, eat healthy foods, and invest in some quality products that will really make a difference in the long run.

Be sure to visit my fashion blog website: Girlofanera.com for all things fashion and beauty! I have got some affordable dresses for winter gatherings you don’t want to miss as well as all the pictures from Europe that inspired my wardrobe from this summer. Happy Holidays!
