Post image for Ayurveda Journal, Week 4: Skincare (& Mind-care) Routine

It’s been a full month since I’ve been introduced to the world of Ayurveda. I don’t know that my life has drastically changed just yet, but I’ve made changes — both external and internal — that I can feel have already started to get me moving in the right direction. (An interesting side note: I just accidentally typed “I don’t know that my mind has drastically changed just yet” – instead of “life”… So fitting, as my mind is the apparent cause of my need for healing).

So glad you covered this aspect of Ayurveda! What a wonder it can be to stop using chemicals on your face. I took the plunge on that 6 years ago and have been so happy with how my skin has changed. I was glad you pointed out too that the internal health is an important factor in skin health and it's not just about what we do on the outside that counts! I, too, got turned onto this by Pratima's book and after reading your blog, I think I'll be going to visit Lilavati and try her products! If I had a dollar for everytime someone expressed major fear at using oil on their skin ("will I become oily?!?"), I'd have a lot of dollars. It's time for us to realize that juicy, soft, glowing skin is a result of a balanced amount of oil, and if you find the right kind that will work for you, you'll never go back:) Thanks for sharing this ancient wisdom in a modern light!!

Post image for Get The Look: Tuxedo Girl Makeup

Our new lookbook — Tuxedo Girl — is up on our site, and it’s all about a feminine take on a masculine look. The styling is simple, with classic black and white mixed with a fun pop of shine or lace here and there. Our model Ieva looks cool and pretty as ever, with natural hair and the slightest hint of makeup. The natural look is not always the easiest to achieve, so I turned to our lovely Makeup artist Deanna Hagan to give us the lowdown on how to get this raw, cool-girl look for ourselves!

I love apples but is it true that there's a lot of pesticide on the ones in grocery store? what can be done to clean off those critters, or is the apple contaminated already?
Andrea! -Jul 04, 2014, 7:24AM
Well every time I look for an apple, the very thought of *an apple a day keeps the doctors away* tosses in my mind. I knew it is healthy but before reading this article, I didn't knew the exact healthy benefits it offered :) Wow I mean, good for teeth, immune system and for strength also.

Is it necessary to wash off the lotion after 15-20 minutes? Or could you leave it on over night? If not, why is that? Thanks

I take a "shot" of apple cider vinegar each morning before a shot of kombucha. It not only makes me energized, but clears my face up from any acne!

Be sure to use unfiltered, raw, organic acv. Bragg's is the best. I've been using it for quite some time now. I use cheaper white vinegar for cleaning and laundry. I use in as fabric softener. Will never use commercial fs again. They contain a waxy substance that builds up on fabrics to wear them out sooner and holds odors. Pour it in the dispenser or directly on the clothes at the beginning of the wash. Lovely, fresh laundry at the end.

We love easy beauty tricks here at Free People, and today I’m sharing one that was introduced to me in my teenage years. In the girls’ bathroom at school one day, my friend whipped a lighter out of her back pocket. I freaked out for a quick second, but then I saw where this was going, and I was in total awe. She was making her own smudge eyeliner. Read more »
