Hi, what a good idea. I will try it as soon as possible. I have created some very healthy and natural masks as well. One you can make out of your coffee for example or a rose mask which is also with yoghurt. http://www.cattivakat.com/?s=maske&x=0&y=0 there is always an english translation at the end... best, Deike

Oh man, thank you Marit! This helps so much. I will definitely check out Nars! I have used a Chanel concealer for years but think it may be time for a change. Much appreciated! xx, Joanna
Marit -Feb 19, 2016, 10:38AM
Hey Joanna!! Great tips, in response to your question I really like the Nars radiant creamy concealer to conceal my underreyes . I have tried so many, and this one is my favorite. It's also nice because you can use it on blemishes and stuff too so you don't need a bunch of different products. I'm pretty pale but I like the shade vanilla because the hint of yellow in it helps counteract the blue/purplish under the eyes. For a cheaper drugstore alternative, try Maybelline instant age rewind concealer or Maybelline Fit me, a dupe for the Nars one. However, I think it is definitely worth it to splurge on the Nars, it looks so good when applied with a beauty u blender. Hope this helps!! Xoxo, Marit

Thanks fp julie. Is there a particular dry shampoo anyone would recommend for those in between days when hair starts to look a bit greasy?
Dani -Apr 01, 2016, 11:14AM
It is a very good advise is not necessary wash our hair everyday, but sometimes I apply some hair mask if I want that my hair smell nice. http://www.mispeinados.com/

Post image for Make: Exfoliating DIY Honey Rose Lip Scrub With All-Natural Ingredients

Give your lips some love with this indulgent DIY scrub

Tawny McLeod -Feb 27, 2016, 12:54PM
Mmm. Love the addition of rose essential oil to the recipe! Rose is one of the highest vibrating essential oils, which = physical healing + energy healing. Be sure the rose oil you use is 100% pure and not the diluted or synthetic stuff to ensure you're getting all the healing love! Thanks for the recipe... I'm adding it to my next DIY day. <3 Tawny www.TawnyMcLeod.com

natural remedies are the best IMO! I also like to use sugar and olive oil for a face scrub, but my lips always get some love, too :) xoxo,Biene http://lettersandbeads.de

Post image for 5 Ways To Set Personal Boundaries

When is it time to start setting personal boundaries?Read More

Nancy R -Mar 25, 2016, 3:13AM
First of all, coo do's s for you La Poz!!! My boundaries were totally broken down as a child, so learning them late in life has been quite the experience. Your article is exactly what I needed to read this week! Coming to light, and learning a very close friend has some very unhealthy traits, which indirectly effects me, has become something I haven't quite known how to handle, or what to do. Your article was helpful, although I'm still not quite sure how to proceed. You've given me food for thought. Thank you!

I think that people are more selfish by the day. Instigating them to be even more selfish smells like counselling business to me.

As I live in Brazil , my most important beauty tip is : to reduce the pores of my skin , use ice and step on it. I wash my face three times a day , since it is very oily, at night retreat all the makeup , wash with a soap for my own skin type and tonic step . Seeking well moisturize my body , since here is very hot and leaves very dry skin!
Maya -Feb 16, 2016, 12:20AM
This might sound gross, but I used to wash my face only with cold water every morning and almost every other night.I had a nearly perfect complexion, but due to the changes of environment (mainly climate and food - I moved from the tropics to cold Europe as a teen, then from the south of Europe back north), I started using creams when I turned 25 (I also began using make up) and that began a weird cycle - I guess being half Asian is great in the skin dept. but it only helped until then! After five years of trial and error using acv, coconut oil and rose water works for me. Once a week I make a hydrating face mask out of things I have in the fridge (or when I'm lazy use a ready made mud mask). And key to it all, is to drink enough water, eat right, exercise and sleep enough so that you don't hit the snooze button. Drinking enough water (I say water because I am somewhat sugar conscious, out of health reasons) will also keep you from over eating. I highly recommend staying away from scrubbing/using exfoliants on your face, especially if you have never done so before. I added an exfoliating phase to my routine on several occasions, but it only makes matters much much worse! Also, since in Europe I seem prone to getting awful sty friends, even though I only touch my eyes after washing my hands. Since my love for coconut oil began, if I get them, they disappear within a day. Furthermore, I use coconut oil as a make up remover and use it to clean all of my brushes. It's fantastic. Use about a teaspoon of coconut oil like mouthwash is also cool. Nothing beats that clean and natural feeling. I check my eye brows every morning, to pluck if necessary, and if I'm plucking on a sensitive day where one pluck = one possible pimple, I apply rose water directly. On top of that, I drink a small dollop of rose water in a large glass of water to start the day. It's said to be very hydrating, but I do it because (even though I hate the smell of roses) I feel happy, calm and ready to take on whatever the day decides to dish out. Some people are amazed that I need one hour before I leave the house. I need it to mentally prepare myself for the day. Being rushed is pointless, there should always be "me time". On top of that, I am a breakfast person, but when I wake up late and don't have half an hour for a quiet breakfast, I drink acv with water to staunch the hunger until I get my hands on proper food. The rest of that one hour is 5-15min of making myself look pretty (clothes and make-up incl.) and 5min of stretching. I am thankful that I was raised by a man at times, because daddy thought "if a bar of soap is good enough for your skin, its good enough for your hair". That was OK logic when I was a kid, but in those teen years... boy oh boy did I have to learn! You might assume I have Asian horse hair, but actually it's dry, thin, wavy/curly chestnut colored hair. I tried going no poo a year ago - I was losing hair by the bundles due to stress. A half a year later, I went back to using shampoo and conditioner (as low poo as possible), because of the demands of my job. Now though, thanks to the no poo period, I wash only once a week. I use oil (either coconut or olive oil, depends on how much I have of which, it's also good to be frugal where you can be frugal ;) ) a few hours before washing. One last thing, growing up in the tropics I often went barefoot or in slippers. Once I got to Europe my feet began hating me. My best cure for unhappy feet: bathe them in a lukewarm bath with vinegar or mouthwash (yes, mouthwash) and tea tree oil. You wont have to scrub your feet till your arms fall off. When you're done, put cream on those lovelies and you'll be good to go. Since most places in Europe are dead on Sundays, that's the day I make full use of for my beauty routine. I really dislike that we need to invest so much time on our looks, only to still not look as good as we want. So, why not do it in the most effective, band-aid ripping method possible? :) Now, this comment is super long, and it's super late. Today I allowed myself to do everything I don't prescribe doing if you want to look beautiful - cola, chips, fries and writing comments on cool blogs. I do this once in a while because it feels good to do things without 'guilt' and still feel rebellious, like you've got your hand in a cookie jar and you're about to get caught ;) Enjoy life ladies! I sure am!

Post image for Cleansing with Oils

Read on to discover a huge game changer in the world of beauty!

Jess -Mar 15, 2016, 9:35PM
Awesome post! Thanks for sharing this! Oil cleansing is fantastic, I would highly recommend this method. :) However, I would also very highly recommend researching it a bit before you try it, especially if you have sensitive or acne prone skin. I did not have success the first time I tried this in attempt to find a natural way to clear up my mild acne... I used cheap drugstore castor oil (which somehow seemed like a good idea??) with some grapeseed oil and tea tree, but it actually caused a severe breakout of cystic acne all over my face that lasted months. (I'd read that some people have to go through a "purging period" where their skin breaks out for a week or two before clearing up, but this seemed excessive, and just wouldn't heal, even a month or two after I discontinued using the method.) The only thing that turned it around was when I (reluctantly) tried the oil cleansing method again just using hempseed oil after reading this blog post that I randomly came across: http://www.minimalistbeauty.com/oils-specifically-for-acne-prone-skin/ Seriously, this was a HUGE game changer. My skin started healing within about 2 days, completely clear after a few weeks. Turns out the the oils I chose (and the type of fatty acids they contain) were a SUPER crucial part of what makes this method work (or not work). It's been about a year and a half, and this method still works awesome for me as long as I use the right kind of oil for my skin. :) (PS: If you are unsure how your skin will respond to this method - or any new beauty regime - definitely patch test it first. I know, it's annoying, but I wish I had done that before... would have saved me a lot of tears and frustration.)

I've been using organic argan oil on my whole body + face + hair for a while now and I am really happy of it! One product for everything :) Recently I even did my own scrub adding one tbs argan oil + one tbs brown sugar. It works amazing! I'm really into trying coconut oil now and after reading this article I'm even more convinced :) - Marta www.surfragette.com

if u have enough time to walk around ur house with a match wouldn't u have enough time to run over ur body with a washcloth to freshen up
Margarita Stepanyan -Jan 24, 2016, 7:34PM
I really love this!! I never considered braiding my hair after a workout, but it definitely seems like a really nice idea. Also, I always use sea salt spray to add texture to my hair, but I never really thought about using it after a workout, but I really like the idea! And dry shampoo is definitely a must!!!
