Pageat Interview Queen


Fall Favorites

I don’t know about you, but for me, October flew by in a flurry of pumpkins and Halloween madness. As we move into Thanksgiving season and cooler weather, it’s time to get cozy, grab a Pumpkin Spice Latte, and if you’re like me — start counting down the days until Christmas. We’ve got a couple seasonal posts coming up, and this is just the first of many. Today, I have a few fall favorites to share with you lovely pageant ladies! Lately I’ve been obsessed with anything to get me in the mood for fall, so I’ve got some Fall goodies as well as beauty products to share with you today.


1. Bath and Body Works Leaves Candle

blog6photo1

This one is a classic, but I just had to mention it. I’ve been burning my Leaves candle all month long, and there’s nothing like it to get me into an Autumnal mood. It’s a perfect balance of sweet and spicy, and it smells just like hot, mulled apple cider. If you’re a fan of cinnamon-y smells, I would definitely recommend giving this one a try. It’s perfect for a warm and cozy fall atmosphere, and the scent is strong enough to fill a room without being overpowering. The new mason-jar packaging is adorable and rustic as well and makes for a great decoration.

 2. Homemade Fall Face Mask with Pumpkin

blog6photo6I am a lover of face masks, especially DIY masks that can be easily put together with natural, household ingredients. So this month I’ve been looking around the internet for a face mask with fall ingredients, and I happened upon this lovely recipe. It only requires four ingredients — pumpkin puree, almond oil, honey, and brown sugar. All of these can be found at a local grocery store, so you won’t have to go through too much trouble for this mask. It’s simple to make it’s supposed to soften and brighten the skin, which is great for the cooler weather when skin tends to get dry and you still want your face to be bright and glowing for any pageants that might be coming up or a holiday party. Give this fresh face mask a try and watch it do wonders for your skin!

3. Essie’s Partner In Crime Nail Polish

blog6photo5Essie nail polishes are always a favorite of mine, so I was really excited to see their new lineup of colors. This new fall collection has a lot of incredible shades, but this one is my favorite. It’s a beautiful, deep-toned brown polish. It’s creamy and rich when applied, and it’s super opaque, so all you need is one coat! The consistency and application of this product is great as well, and the shade is absolutely perfect for fall. Because it’s neutral, so it’ll go with just about any outfit you wear, especially ones with warm fall colors.

4. Pumpkin Pie Puppy Chowblog6photo3

Puppy Chow is one of my favorite holiday snacks (that I indulge in all year-round). I like to make it during Christmas time, but I recently found a really great fall-themed puppy chow recipe, so you can just imagine my excitement. I’ve yet to try it out, but as Thanksgiving comes around, this might just be my contribution to the Feast. For those of you who don’t know, puppy chow is, in fact, not dog food, but a scrumptious sweet snack made with rice chex cereal. There are a lot of variations, but this one may become my new favorite. It’s got white chocolate, pumpkin puree, and M&Ms and if you’re a fan of sweet treats, this may be the one for you.

5. Philosophy’s Cinnamon Buns Shower Gel

blog6photo4Philosophy’s bath and shower products are incredibly popular, and with good reason. They all smell delicious and leave your skin feeling soft and pampered. And I always like to switch up my shower gel by the season, because it’s an easy way to get into the fall atmosphere as the smell envelopes the entire bathroom. This shower gel is for those of you who aren’t too keen on the pumpkin scent that’s ever-present around this time of the year. This shower gel gives a rich and thick lather, and it smells warm and sweet and spicy and will definitely give you a huge cinnamon buns craving.

Nighttime Skincare Routine

Proper skincare is an absolute must for any girl, but especially for pageant girls whose faces are in the spotlight. And establishing a daily routine helps achieve and maintain beautiful, healthy skin. Without further ado, let’s get started!


Removing Your Makeup:

The first step in any skincare routine, before even washing your face, is to remove all of your makeup, so that any traces of various products you use don’t seep into your pores overnight and cause breakouts. You can use a makeup-removing cleanser to wash your face while your remove your makeup, makeup wipes for a quick and easy clean, or a makeup-removing solution like Bioderma Crealine H20 which gently removes waterproof makeup or heavy stage makeup for a post-pageant routine. Another makeup removing product that has recently taken over the beauty world is a cleansing balm, which moisturizes the skin as you massage it into your skin to remove makeup.

Cleansing Your Skin:

blog4photo5Next, it’s time to use a cleanser. Facial cleansers are meant to remove dirt, grime, sweat, and oil build-up from throughout the day. Even if you use a makeup-removing cleanser, I recommend cleansing once more to ensure your face is absolutely clean. When cleansing, it’s always a good idea to use warm water, which opens up the pores and allows the cleanser to penetrate and clear your pores. Cleansers like Cetaphil Daily Cleanser or Simple Foaming Cleanser are great for all skin-types, even sensitive skin. Once you’ve finished cleansing, gently pat your face with a washcloth or muslin without rubbing it in and irritating the skin.

Face Scrub and Face Masks:

The next step is to exfoliate your skin with a gentle scrub. This helps remove dead skin, reduces dullness, cleans your pores. I recommend exfoliating every other day to avoid irritating your skin and causing redness. Once a week, I also recommend using a face mask after completing the above steps to deeply penetrate pores and draw out impurities. There are a large variety of face masks that target a number of different skin problems, such as acne, dry skin, discoloration, etc., so identify what you’d like to focus on before choosing one. Face masks with fresh ingredients, such as the ones found at Lush, are even more healthy for your skin.

Using  A Toner:

Next, you’ll want to apply a toner to your face. A lot of people aren’t aware of the benefits of using a facial toner, but it is an important step in the skincare routine. Toners help to minimize pores, balance the pH level of your skin after cleansing, remove the last traces of cleanser or grime, and generally refresh the face. Dab some toner onto a cotton pad and sweep it all over your face in an upward motion, then allow to the toner to absorb and do its job.

Serums and Spot Treatments:blog4photo3

Once you’ve applied a toner, it’s time for your serums and spot treatments. These can vary greatly depending on your skin-type, and are contrentrated products meant to target specific skin problems. This can range from a spot acne treatment such as Clean and Clear’s Advantage Spot Acne Treatment to The Body Shop’s Vitamin E Overnight Serum-in-Oil for dry skin that needs intense moisture. Go ahead and apply your serums, then wait a couple minutes to allow it to sink it to your skin.

Moisturizing Your Face:

Last but not least, theblog4photo4 time has come to moisturize. Night creams generally have a heavier formula than a daytime moisturizer and are meant to be absorbed into the skin throughout the night. A personal favorite of mine is Philosophy’s Hope in a Jar Night Cream, which locks in moisture and leaves your skin soft and smooth. If you use an eye cream, now it is the time to use dab that under your eyes as well.


It may sound like a lot at first, but once you’ve established the routine, it’s not very time-consuming. This routine can be entirely customized based on whether you have dry, oily, sensitive, or combination skin. You’ll start to see the benefits to regular skincare within days and your skin will be glowing during your pageant!

Essential Oils with Beauty Benefits

Who doesn’t want radiant skin and healthy hair? These are musts for any pageant girl, whether you’re on stage being interviewed by a panel or out in your daily life. Today, I’ll be sharing with you all a few essential oils with incredible benefits that will have your skin and hair stage-ready for any upcoming beauty pageants. Let’s get started!


 

Tea Tree Oil:

Tea tree oil is so incredibly versatile in its benefits. It’s known mostly for its antiseptic and healing properties, but it has a lot of great beauty uses as well. Because it is an antiseptic, it’s amazing as an acne spot treatment. With just a couple drops on a Q-tip, the tea tree oil will soothe skin as well and reduce redness from blemishes to give you clear, pageant-ready skin. And adding a couple drops of this oil to your regular shampoo can also help reduce dandruff.

It is important to know, however, that tea tree oil should not be ingested and should be used sparingly as it can be harsh in large amounts.

 

Grapeseed Oil:

blog3photo4Another amazing, inexpensive essential oil is grapeseed oil, which is especially great for pageant girls with oily skin. It is a natural astringent that can be used to tone and tighten skin — all you need to do is put a few drops onto a cotton pad and spread it over your face after cleansing. It can also be used to prevent and reduce acne, similarly to tea tree oil, because it has anti-inflammatory properties. Another great use for grapeseed oil is dabbing a little bit underneath your eyes to minimize under-eye circles and keep you looking fresh and alert during your beauty pageant.

 

Coconut Oil:

blog3photo2

Unlike tea tree oil and grapeseed oil, coconut oil has amazing moisturizing qualities. It can be used to soften cuticles or feet by massaging it into your skin, and it can be used as a luxuriously moisturizing shaving cream. Not only that, but a dab of coconut oil can also double as an overnight lip balm, remove tough waterproof eye makeup, and be used as deep conditioner for hair if you massage it into your roots and leave it for a few hours before washing out as normal. It’ll leave you hair shiny and smooth and definitely catch attention on the pageant stage!

 

Olive Oil:

blog3photo3

Last but not least, olive oil. This versatile oil is not only great for cooking, but its beauty benefits are incredible for those of you pageant girls looking for an at-home beauty fix. Just like coconut oil, it can be used as a makeup remover or shaving cream, and it can also be easily made into a lip scrub by combining it with granulated sugar. You can even mix in either coarse sea salt or epsom salts to create an exfoliating body scrub. It can also be used as a hair treatment for frizzy hair — you can either apply it the roots and leave it for a few hours before washing your hair or use a few drops on dry hair to smooth out flyaways and split ends.


Which essential oil will you be using to get your skin ready for your next big beauty pageant?

Spotlight: Lush Cosmetics & Strawberry Hedgehog

Let’s talk organic. Let’s talk natural. Let’s talk handmade. Now let’s talk about all of these qualities and more in skin care and cosmetics. Every beauty pageant contestant wants glowing and healthy skin, especially when she’s up close with the judges answering interview questions, of course. And we can all agree that our skin needs and deserves the best kind of nourishment, and sometimes natural and organic is the best way to go. With these brands, you’ll know exactly what goes into the products you use on your face and body.


 LUSH COSMETICS:

Lush has been a personal favorite of mine for quite a while. Lush has a philosophy of buying ingredients ethically, involvement in charity work, environmentally friendly production and packaging, fighting animal testing, and making handmade, fresh beauty products that are great for your hair, skin, and conscience. From their colorful and fragrant bath bombs and bubble bars to their solid shampoos and fresh face masks, it’s hard not to be enticed. But the quality is what’s really amazing.

Personally, I love their bath bombs, which fizz and create a colorful, aromatic, and moisturizing bath experience to really pamper yourself. My favorites are Phoenix Rising, a warm apple cinnamon-scented one, and Honey Bee, a light honey-scented one, which can be seen in the photo below, along with a few of the other bath bombs offered at Lush.

They also have a great selection of face masks that work for all different skin types. I love their Mask of Magnanimity, which is great for all skin types, and Cupcake, which looks and smells like chocolate and is for oily skin. Both are hydrating and make your face feel nice and loved. You can see the “Cupcake” mask along with all of the other fresh masks that Lush offers in the beautiful display below.

blog1photo1

Next, I have to mention their Charity Pot body lotion, which feels amazing as a daily moisturizer for your body. A great bonus to that product is that all proceeds go to charity!

Last but not least, let’s talk about their soaps, which are all super colorful and smell incredible. A lot of them contain pieces of fruit, oatmeal, herbs, or seaweed to exfoliate your skin as you use them. One of their most popular soaps is a honey-scented one Honey I Washed the Kids. Another one that I love is the exfoliating Sea Vegetable, which can be seen below along with several more Lush soaps.

Now, the variety of products that they offer goes way beyond the few that I highlighted above, so I definitely recommend checking out their website to see more!


 STRAWBERRY HEDGEHOG:

Another great brand to look out for is this local Arizona company (don’t worry, they ship!). Not only are all of their products handmade, but they are also vegan, free of preservatives, and full of high-quality ingredients so you know your skin will be in good hands with these products.

All of their soaps are plant-based and organic and gentle on your skin. A few soaps to note are the Patchouli Orange, Blueberry Lavender, and the Tea Tree Rosemary, which is a facial cleanser. They also have a “soap club” where you can subscribe to receive either one or three luxurious soaps every month if you’re interested in trying out a few different ones.

They also offer great skincare products like Organic Shea Butter to deeply moisturize dry skin and a Raw Sugar Scrub to exfoliate and smooth skin, both of which are packaged in adorable vintage jars.

Their facial care line includes Balancing Facial Toner for your pores, Blemish Treatment to combat acne, and Hydrating Mist to keep your face feeling refreshed throughout the day.

This is definitely a brand to look into. It’s unique, all-natural, and high quality! Check out their website: http://strawberryhedgehog.com.


The fact that both of these companies go beyond beauty and support charities, the environment, fair trade, vegan and vegetarian ingredients might dovetail nicely with some pageant girls’ belief systems or platforms that pertain to helping the environment or healthy living.

If you’ve shopped at Lush or Strawberry Hedgehog before, let us know which products are your favorites!

All-Natural Beauty: Skin Care Part I

All-Natural Beauty_Skin Care Part I(1)Hello my lovely pageant ladies! Skin care is such an important part of every woman’s beauty routine, and I think being more conscious of what we put on our bodies is equally as important. Recently, my skin has not been behaving so well, so I have decided to scrap my normal routine and try to go all-organic.

Thus, I decided to bring my skincare journey to you guys! There is not a huge amount of literature that concretely says which organic brands are the best or what organic products are the best. However, after scouring the Internet and reading through almost a bajillion posts and watching Youtubers’ reviews, I have come up with a few top-notch organic brands that seem to be pretty popular.

Dr. Hausckha

Dr. Hauschka is a biodynamic, German skincare brand. What is biodynamic? Biodynamic is a more holistic way to view the agricultural process. It combines ethics, ecology, and spirituality for a more wholesome process. One could surmise that it is one step up from organic. The brand attempts to keep the body within its natural rhythm by creating products that balance your skin out rather than hiding or covering up the problem temporarily. Their top products are their Cleansing Milk and Rose Day Cream.

In addition to their skin care they also have a makeup line that wins quite a few awards for being green and organic. The brand has been around since the late 1960s and being all natural has always been their motto, what more could a pageant girl ask for?

Dr. Bronners

People seem to have an unending love affair with Dr. Bronners. This may have to do with the laundry list of things their soap is capable of in addition to the fact it is fair trade and organic. From washing dishes to washing your body, this brand does it right. People also enjoy their lip balms and lotions. They have a delectable range of scents from energizing peppermint to calming lavender. No matter your tastes having a bottle of Dr. Bronners around will never fail you. Great for a no-nonsense pageant girl!

Michael Todd

YouTubers LOVED Michael Todd. Their favorite products? The Honey & Oat Deep Pore Gel Cleanser, Citrus Cream Moisturizer, Tropical Fruit Scrub, and the Knu Anti-Aging Serum. The products boast organic ingredients and a “made in the USA” stamp. No animal testing is another great bonus and the lack of parabens and other artificial ingredients make for feel good, safe skin care products. People overall seemed to really enjoy Michael Todd’s products, and I would definitely give them ago. They are affordable and offer skin care recommendations based on your skin type!

Hoped these summarized reviews helped! I’ll be testing new organic skin care products, and if I like them they’ll pop up on my favorite products for the month posts. Stay tuned because I will discuss three more organic skin care brands in “All-Natural Beauty: Skin Care Part II!”

Also, don’t forget to CLICK the brand names, they lead to where you can buy the products!

Favorite Products for June

Favorite Products for June

We are well on are way into summer, and I hope you lovely pageant ladies are finding some time to treat yourselves and relax! This month I have been testing out sunscreens and bronzers, as I have never truly found one that I have fallen in love with. So here are my favorite products for June, chockfull of summery fun! :)

1. Tory Burch: Perfume

Tory Burch recently came out with its first ever perfume. I was curious, and with its beautiful packaging why not give it a try? It was love at first sniff! The perfume is perfect for spring and summer as it is light and sweet, but has the right amount of depth. This combination makes it the perfect perfume to take from night to day. I have trouble sticking with one scent, but added this one to my rotation. I absolutely love it, and what pageant girl does not want to smell divine for her pageant?

2. Too Faced: Chocolate Soleil Medium/Deep Matte Bronzer

Talk about yummy! This bronzer smells like chocolate! Additionally, the bronzer’s consistency is soft and creamy making application a dream. A little goes a long way, especially with my fairer complexion, but I felt it gave my skin a natural sun-kissed look. Furthermore, the bronzer is very buildable, which gives it great versatility should you tan more as the summer progresses. Give this delicious smelling bronzer a try, and you’ll definitely look like a bronzed goddess for your pageant!

3. Dr. Hauschka: Cleansing Milk

I recently wrote a blog post on organic beauty brands (*hint*), and decided to sample one of the products mentioned. I have absolutely fallen in love with it! Most cleansers are way too drying for my skin, and I end up breaking out or having dry skin. I switched to this all-organic cleanser and have never been happier. It is soft and creamy, and leaves my skin feeling hydrating. My skin doesn’t feel as though it’s being stripped of all its natural oils, and my overall skin tone has improved. If you want beautiful, pageant-ready skin sans chemicals try this product!

4. SuperGoop! Sun-Defying Sunscreen Oil Broad Spectrum SPF 50

I sampled Sephora’s Sun Safety Kit, which was chockfull of sunscreens and bronzers to try! One of the sunscreens was this lovely oil. I wasn’t sure about it at first, but I ended up really liking it. It’s formulated without parabens, sulfates, or phthalates. Although it is an oil, it doesn’t feel greasy. In fact when first applied it makes your skin look dewy and healthy. I prefer it for use on my body to my face, as I am not a huge fan of facial oils to begin with, but how you use it will depend on your preference! Another bonus is that it smells great too! Every pageant girl needs to remember to apply sunscreen to maintain healthy skin!

5. Soap & Glory: Sexy Mother Pucker Gloss Stick

I recently discovered this gloss stick while watching a YouTuber who raved about the product. She said it was moisturizing, plumping, and just the right amount of color. And you know what? She was absolutely right! I have the gloss stick in Fuschia-Ristic, a nice pink color that’s perfect for summer! It also comes in a burgundy berry (Plum Jam) and a natural pink beige color (Nudist). This gloss stick makes lips look plump, full, and luscious. Everything a pageant girl wants to look great for her pageant!

P.S. What were your favorite products this June? Let me know below! :)

Favorite Products for May

Favorite Beauty Products for MayThe end of May is here and so is another “Favorite Products of the Month!” I am very excited for this month’s products because they have become some of my absolute favorites! From lipsticks to body scrubs this month is packed full of fun, brightly packaged products that will bring a smile to your face. So check’em out and enjoy! :)

1.    M.A.C. Lipsticks (Morange, Sunny Seoul, & Candy Yum Yum)

M.A.C. is renowned for its lipsticks, at least among the beauty mavens on YouTube. For a long time I had yet to own any M.A.C. lipsticks, but recently I have been inducted into the M.A.C. lipstick lovers fandom. I recommend that every pageant girl at least owns one or two! These lipsticks are awesome, and they come in such a wide variety it borderlines overwhelming. I was able to narrow down my choices thanks to the YouTubers I follow, and have happily purchased the three colors mentioned in the title.

Morange is a bright orange that seems to just work well on anyone. It fades to a pleasant coral color over the course of the day, and is a great statement lipstick. Candy Yum Yum is another statement lipstick. It’s an in-your-face bright pink that means business. It almost borderlines retro for me, and thus makes it simply amazing. Sunny Seoul is tame compared to the previous two, and is a wonderful pink summery shade. Perfect for applying on the go, it is a great lipstick to have stored on hand at all times! :)

 2.    Tarte: Smooth Operator™ Amazonian Clay Waterproof Concealer

Foundation and concealer have never been my friends. I have not used foundation in the last four years and use concealers sparingly. This is because I have an absolutely horrid time trying to find a color that matches my skin tone. I am mixed (Asian and Caucasian); the result is a golden yellow and pink skin tone that borders porcelain and fair depending on the season.

I had almost given up hope when I discovered this concealer by Tarte! It blends nicely into my skin tone, but is ever so slightly lighter, which is great because then it brightens my under eyes. Furthermore, this stuff is waterproof, which translates into staying power. So far I have loved it, and definitely recommend to any pageant girls who struggles with the same skin tone problem I have!

 3.    Benefit Cosmetics: Gimme Brow

I heard about this product, and was skeptical at first. Then I watched an infomercial (yes a Benefit infomercial), and was somewhat convinced. I took a chance and bought it, and have loved it since. It subtly fills in brows and gives them more volume in the best way possible. They don’t look drawn in, and instead the formula fills in sparse areas to give you a fuller looking brow. A definite must for any pageant ladies that suffer from sparse or thin brows!

 4.    Soap & Glory: Sugar Crush™ Body Scrub & Flake Away™ Body Polish

May I just say, holey moley these are wonderful! And the smell, it’s to die for! I have tried two of Soap & Glory’s body scrubs (i.e., Sugar Crush™ and Flake Away™). Sugar Crush ™ smells like a margarita minus the alcohol. It is super refreshing and great for summer. Plus it really does work as a great body exfoliator! Flake Away ™ also has a glorious smell, and the smell lasts longer on the skin. Flake Away™ pairs well with The Righteous Body Butter mentioned below. Both come in sample sizes that are reasonably priced, so give them a try! You will smell absolutely fabulous for your pageant!

5.    Soap & Glory: The Righteous Body Butter

I tried a sample size of this along with Flake Away™ as my first foray into the Soap & Glory brand. The combination of the two makes you smell simply divine. Furthermore, the body butter is rich and creamy. It leaves your skin baby soft and very hydrated. This will become an after shower staple in my beauty routine. Whether for summer or winter, this lotion is a great way to have beautiful skin for your pageant!

P.S. What were your favorite products this month? I would love to know so comment below! :)

All-Natural Beauty: Body Lotion

All-Natural Beauty_ Body LotionI love body lotion. It keeps skin soft and supple, while making sure you smell wonderful! Lotion is important for skin because good lotion will not only hydrate, but also help heal and protect skin. Furthermore, because the lotion’s ingredients will be absorbed into your skin, you want to make sure that you’re not piling on the chemicals. This is why I prefer to buy organic body lotion when possible.

Every pageant girl wants beautiful, soft skin. So why not make sure you can keep it glowing by using safe, organic products? Below are a few of my favorite (or highly rated) organic body lotions as well as a recipe or two if you’re the D.I.Y. type. Enjoy!

Organic Body Lotion Products:

1.    100% Pure Nourishing Body Cream (Coconut)

I received a sample of this in my Birch Box and absolutely loved it. It had a nice creamy formula, and was very hydrating. The biggest problem I usually have with body lotions are that they are too thin and do not hydrate enough. However, this product was perfectly thick and hydrating. I had a sample of the coconut one, and personally loved it. However, some people are not huge coconut fans. Luckily, they also have green apple, vanilla bean, and pink grapefruit to choose from!

2.    Bliss Body Butter (Lemon & Sage)

My mom received a set of bliss body butters for Christmas, and I quickly set out trying each and every one. The consistency is between thin and creamy, but still hydrating making it nice for the summer. These body butters are paraben free and contain Vitamin A and E, both of which are good for the skin. Furthermore, the body butters come in an array of lovely scents. I liked the lemon and sage because it smelled fresh and energizing due to the citrus.

3.    Alba Botanica Very Emollient Body Lotion (Unscented)

My parents use this body lotion, and naturally I was curious and helped myself to some. This lotion doesn’t smell like anything special, and because of this you can easily layer your perfume on top without any scent conflict. Furthermore, this stuff is gloriously thick, and thus super hydrating! It is paraben free and hypoallergenic, so it is great for those with sensitive skin.

4.    Nourish Organic Body Lotion (Almond Vanilla)

I received a sample of this product and was impressed by its all-organic list of ingredients! It has a pleasant smell and a very lightweight formula. This would be perfect for summer. Especially, for those living in more humid environments because the lotion is less thick than those mentioned above (but is also less hydrating). However, it is chalk full of good-for-you ingredients such as aloe vera, argan oil, and vitamin E making for beautiful, soft pageant-ready skin.

All-Natural Beauty: Face Masks

ID-100214253-stockimagesHello my pageant starlets! We all know how important smooth, flawless skin is for your pageant (and for your health!). We scrounge around the drugstore hoping this or that product will work, and end up spending lots of money for beautiful skin. However, the skin we dream of is right around the corner (or in this case in your kitchen cabinet). So open up your pantries and pay not a cent more! Here are a few of my favorite D.I.Y. face masks by BubzBeauty for the all-natural beauty in us all.

1.     DIY Mask for Clear & Smooth Skin

Doesn’t her skin just glow in this video? I also love how easy and quick all the steps are! This mask is a definite must as it not only exfoliates, but also helps you achieve a brighter, clearer complexion. To add more credibility to her claims for the benefits of almonds and honey check out the links below. :)

2.     Tea Bag Face Scrub

I fell in love with this beauty D.I.Y. for a number of reasons. First, green tea is just great to drink anyway, as it helps detoxify and provides your body with antioxidants. Thus, why not treat your face as well as your body? Instead of spending money on expensive exfoliators just use your green tea bags to achieve a beautiful, clear complexion! If you want more details on green tea check out the link below!

3.     Chocolate DIY Beauty Mask

When I stumbled upon this beauty mask video I could not believe my eyes or ears: a face mask made of what? Chocolate! The simple fact that a D.I.Y. beauty mask that involves chocolate exists made me unbelievably happy. It sounds crazy, but looks like it works because her face appears so clear and bright after she uses it! Why not indulge in chocolate the right way? :) Curious about the uses and benefits of yogurt and cacao (i.e., chocolate)? Check out the links below!
