CC Beauty Live: Winter Skin Care

I generally am pretty on top of winter skin care and making sure my skin doesn't dry out. I've got a few new products in my beauty arsenal that I want to share with y'all and some new tips.

CC Beauty Live: Suki Skin Care

I test out a lot of products, and rarely am I completely blown away by a brand. And even more rarely am I completely blown away by each product I test. Well, I've met my match: Suki Skin Care. You all know how picky I am when it comes to skin care, but after using this brand for the past two weeks I am convinced that I need it in my life.

CC Beauty Live: Treating Sunburn

I rarely burn, but I've had a few cases of awful sunburn where I had to stay inside and lay on the floor because my down comforter felt like a bed of nails against my skin. I've blistered and picked and even had sun poisoning. So trust me, I feel your pain.

CC Beauty Live: Skin Care Basics

We go through a lot of make up and hair videos over here, but I don't always go over skin care tips. How are you supposed to properly use makeup if you don't know how to care for your skin?

CC Beauty Live: Winter Woes

A few weeks ago, I gave you all some winter tips to keep your skin and hair in check as the weather started getting chilly. Well, now I've got some more! There are some of the same (like moisturize A LOT! And use Aquaphor!), but how else will I drill it into your head? This stuff's important, yo.

CC Beauty Live: The Body Deli

Like I mentioned last week, skin care is one of the most important things in a beauty regimen. I treasure my skincare products, and I think it's crucial to find a line of products that truly works for your skin. And it's not easy with the shelves and shelves full of "miracle products" that claim to fix everything wrong with your skin (and generally don't work).

Body Blog: Good Eating Is Skin Deep

live for the summer. In the spring, I count down the days until my last final and I miss it terribly during the fall. I love the way the sun‘s rays touch my skin, I love reading novels lazily on the beach, my morning outdoor runs, and enjoying picnics and BBQs. I love the skin-exposing, brightly colored fashions I get to wear.

CC Beauty Live: Strawberry Fields For Your Face

We all know the benefits of using a facial scrub: it sloughs off dead skin cells letting your beautiful fresh face show through; and also gets really deep into your pores to get rid of oil, makeup and other gross build-up. I love all the good that a facial scrub can do, but I'm tired of rubbing my face with a sandy, painful scrub!

Makeup 101: Summer Scrub Down

When you’re trying to get in and out of the shower as quickly as you can to head on to bigger and better things, (a.k.a the beach), it can be easy to bypass seemingly unimportant tasks. You probably wash your face, your body and your hair, but do you take the time for proper exfoliation?

Jizz On Your Face?

So apparently all those frat guys during my last four years of university had it right all along - sperm really does have many health benefits. A Norwegian company called Bioforskning (which sounds like the owner may have had a mouthful of something when she was asked to name the company) has developed a facial treatment to minimize wrinkles and smooth skin utilizing spermine, an element in human sperm.

Makeup 101: Beat the Burn

I actually feel quite sorry for you; sunburns are the worst! They hurt, they peel, and as if the pain isn?t enough, well you also look like someone put you in a frying pan for 5 hours. (I bet you wish you had listened to your mother and put on some SPF!)

All Made Up: Real Life Skin Care

Let’s talk about skin care. Go into any beauty retailer, find a sales person and ask them to recommend a skin care regimen. Then duck, because you are about to get hit with an avalanche of products your skin “needs.” They’re going to try to sell you a makeup remover, a cleanser, a scrub, a toner, a serum, a moisturizer, a spot treatment...
