    Get Rid of Chicken Skin

    Get Rid of Chicken Skin

    The annoying pimples on the back of your arms are called Keratosis Pilaris. Even though there is no definite cure for it there are a few ‘Organic’ steps you could add to your normal skincare routine to help getting rid of it. The first step you should take is having cooler showers. I know, it’s probably not what you wanted to hear, especially now in the colder weather but hot water can change your skin’s sebum production which could aggravate the bumps on your arms. Another step: replacing your regular market shower gel to a certified organic one. There are a lot of ingredients, such as surfactants, in the main stream shower gels that will dry your skin out.. Stay hydrated. You need to drink loads of water every day to keep your skin always hydrated. Exfoliating is crucial. It wouldn’t be a bad idea to use your clarisonic to try and break the dead skin cells. After you’ve exfoliated in the shower instead of drying your arms completely leave a little bit of water and put moisturiser on top of it. The goal is to trap as much water into the skin as possible to keep it always hydrated. Nothing But The Truth.

    You've Been Lying Down On Other People's Bacteria

    You've Been Lying Down On Other People's Bacteria

    Making sure that the mat they are going to lay down on or exercise on is clean is not often a priority on people’s schedules. I know. You’d be surprised at how little people tend to clean their yoga mat. If the mat they used is borrowed, it’s even worse. People just don’t realize that they’ve been exercising among dirty bacteria of multiple people. Same goes for all gym equipment. The solution for that is: Pinks Boutique Crystal Sanitizer. The Crystal Sanitizer is perfect to have in your yoga bag. It helps cleaning not only mats but you can use it to clean gym’s equipment’s before you use them too. This product is a must have if you like exercising, Conde Naste said so! Another product you have to have is: Pinks Boutique Elixirs. We recommend you spraying the air around you with it once before you start your yoga session to prepare and relax the mind and then again to close the session. The organic essential oils and aromas in the elixirs will go into your breathing system and will help you create happy memories and relaxation anchors that are triggered by the smell, seriously useful to have in your life. Nothing But The Truth.

    What do Pet food and your face have in common?

    What do Pet food and your face have in common?

    Even though Propylene Glycol is considered safe by the FDA some people consider it devastating and cancer causing. How can that be, how are there so many mixed messages??? Surely it would be safer just to avoid it in our opinion. It can be found in nearly everything, from skincare to dog food, make up and cleansers. There are other alternatives in the beauty industry, it just isn’t necessary but it is cheap and that is why it is always used. Well, Propylene Glycol is a wetting agent (a substance that absorbs water or maintain moisture in a product) and comes from petroleum. There are several other problems involving this ingredient. Find out what they are in today’s video. Nothing But The Truth.

    IS IT REALLY NECESSARY TO USE SERUM?

    IS IT REALLY NECESSARY TO USE SERUM?

    A lot of people think serum is another unnecessary beauty step the skincare industry has created to sell more products people don’t need. This train of thought couldn’t be more wrong. Serum is the base layer of skincare you use after you’ve cleansed and toned the skin. All the actives and results driven ingredients for your skin needs go in to serums and they are tailored according to specific concerns. For example: If you’re feeling that the change in the weather is drying your skin, you can use a serum specifically for hydration. Differently from your moisturiser, you can and should change serums according to your skin concern. They also prepare your skin to receive the moisturiser (which is the next step in skincare routine). Nothing But The Truth.

    LEARN HOW TO TREAT YOUR DRY LIPS ORGANICALLY. THE ANSWER IS IN YOUR KITCHEN

    LEARN HOW TO TREAT YOUR DRY LIPS ORGANICALLY. THE ANSWER IS IN YOUR KITCHEN

    Colder weather brings dryness with it. Whenever winter approaches the whole skin in the body has the tendency to dry up but often the lips suffer the most. These are the organic measures and golden ingredients for moist baby lips: 1) Check your tooth paste. Through experience I’ve seen several clients get dry lips because of the tooth paste they were using due to the SLS in it - change it. 2) Stop licking your lips. It’s a natural reaction to lick your lips when you feel that they are dry but that is actually bad for you. Your saliva has enzymes to help you digest food (Yes! Digestion starts in your mouth) and that enzyme dries out your lips even more. 3) Try not to wear mainstream non-organic lipsticks. A lot of those lipsticks have ingredients which dry your lip skin. 4) Use sugar to naturally exfoliate your lips. 5) Shea Butter is great for this type of situation. It builds a thick occlusive barrier that doesn’t let any moisture come out or cold and over exposure to cold weather to come in! It has anti - inflammatory properties too. 6) Coconut oil to get more moisture on your lips. 7) Pinks Boutique Rose Clay and Rosehip Mask. A lot of people have used it to heal dry lips and they said it worked wonderfully. Buy it now: LINK 8) Honey. There are several ways of using honey to help heal your lips. Honey with Shea Butter, medicated honey creams… Honey is one of the best natural healers and anti-inflammatory too. Nothing But The Truth.

    HELP YOUR HUSBAND BE YOUNG FOREVER

    HELP YOUR HUSBAND BE YOUNG FOREVER

    I know it mind sound incredibly selfish but I want my husband to look good and take care of his skin. I am married to him and to some extent he represents me and I want him to be the best version of himself. Even though there are men who like to take care of themselves and have already adopted a skincare regime the majority of them still don’t. The $64 million question in my household at the moment is: Why not? Some of the conclusions we came up with are: they are too lazy, they think it’s too complicated, they think it’s for girls, that it’s just a female thing to get into, they can’t be bothered, or they’re too cynical of the marketing, they don’t think it works. If you have any answer to this question, please do let us know!!!!! Today I’m here to support you and all the other women that have come up to me and said “I can’t make him do it” and give you some ideas on how to get around those old fashioned arguments and sort of manipulate them towards it Tip number one: lay all the products out in your bathroom or by the sink. Put yours on one side, theirs on the other. When the products are right in front of them they’re so much more likely to do it because there are not that many excuses for them not to do it and you can even try and build it into a routine when you’re getting ready for bed. Another tip is: Don’t wait for them to go out and buy the products themselves. Buy them the products they need. Gift it to them. Always make sure you’re buying products for the ingredients and not for the pretty packaging. In the worst case scenario (when they don’t use anything you’ve bought them) use the products yourself (so always keep in mind the products you could also use before buying anything for him; just in case you are the one having to use it in the end). Use a more appealing language. Instead of pushing a skincare routine to prevent wrinkles on them (which most men are not that interested in) try and bring the skincare routine to their world. For example: if your husband is into going to the gym and training, point out that having a skincare routine will help his skin post training and help him feel better after a long hour in the gym, preventing spots and making him feel fresh. Make him care about it. Lastly, before introducing all these serums and moisturisers that sound complicated to beginners start with obvious products: cleansers and shaving product Take everything in baby steps and build up from there. LINK PROVERB CLEANSE AND SHAVE MUD Don’t give up! You can do this! We can do this! And we’ll all look better. Nothing But The Truth.
