Some days start off worse than others. Can you say January 1st, July 5th, and whatever the day after St. Patty’s day is. Well today might just be one of those days for you. Through the power of science you can cleanse or scrub away last night while also adding some pep to your step. Clean and Clear offers a line of morning burst cleansers and scrubs, some even have caffeine in the formula to keep those pesky dark circles at bay. Cheer up, pop some Aspirin, chug some water, and throw on some sunnies. You got this!
This weather is taking a toll on your skin, whether you notice it or not. Take some time to treat your skin with an easy (and cheap!) homemade body scrub. Its made with 4 natural ingredients. Coffee is extremely rich in antioxidants and the caffeine draws out excess moisture in skin causing it to look firmer and feel smoother. It is also a mild exfoliant that removes dead skin cells. Coconut Oil is extremely beneficial for your skin because it is rich in vitamins and minerals and provides locking moisture. Raw sugar acts as another exfoliator, and Cinnamon clears the skin of bacteria.
- 1/2 cup of ground coffee
- 1/2 cup of raw sugar
- 1/4 cup coconut oil
- 1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon
Heat coconut oil until it melts and let it cool to room temperature, then mix all ingredients until well blended. Store the scrub in an air tight container. Apply the scrub generously to your body in circular motion (it spreads easier if your skin is damp) then rinse off! Your skin will look and feel silky and smooth. This body scrub will exfoliate, reduce cellulite, tighten and tone your skin.
From bra-less sheer top celeb guests, to a male streaker during Prabal Gurung’s show, to DNKY’s cast of transgenders and full figured models, Mercedes Benz Fashion Week this year has been as exciting as ever. Fashion week is one of the best ways to analyze trends from street style to runway. This years runway fashion and beauty have been all over the place. Here are a few of my favorite hairstyles on the runways:
