Most women want a healthy glowing complexion. However, many women feel that they can only achieve these results with expensive spa applications, procedures, and creams. Fortunately, none of this is true. You can greatly improve your complexion by doing a few simple things on a daily and weekly basis.

A clean face is a happy face. We’ve won half the battle if we can adequately clean our faces. However, there are certain specific enemies when it comes to keeping your face clean and healthy. The practice of going to bed with your makeup on can really wreak havoc on your complexion, especially over time. Make it a habit to wash your face in the morning and before bed. You rid your face of all the dirt and oils from the day and you keep your pores free and clear. This is a simple step that you can do yourself without the help of mql machining.

We don’t have the complexion we had as a baby. Our cell turnover slows down quite a bit as we age. This means that we must manually get rid of our dead skin cells because our cell turnover has become sluggish over time. Generally, exfoliation is something that we can do once a week with good results. Exfoliation will reveal fresh new skin that is often brighter and smoother than it was before.Without this essential step, our complexions can become dull and lackluster over time.

Moisture & Protection
Everyone’s complexion needs moisture. This is even true for oily skin. It’s simply a matter of selecting a moisturizer suitable for your skin type. We also need protection from the sun’s powerful rays. Photoaging is a real problem and can result in us appearing older than we are, as well as possible skin cancer. Be sure to moisturize and protect. If you can find a sunscreen and a moisturizer in one product, invest in it. You will certainly need it.

A beautiful complexion is within your reach. You can control how your skin looks by what you do. Take care of it. Keep it clean, moisturized, and protected. You will begin to see positive changes in no time. Exfoliation is a powerful step that you’ll want to complete at least once a week. It will help you shed dead skin cells and reveal a fresh and healthy complexion.

Rewarding the Extra-Special Stay at Home Mom in Your Life This Holiday Season

Being a stay at home mom is not easy. If the kids are babies they deal with diapers, crying, feeding, errands, etc. As the kids get older they’re usually responsible for transporting everybody from place to place as well as maintaining the household on a daily basis. Not even after their kids leave home does their job end. Many career mothers will be nurturing for life. So this holiday season say thanks to anyone in your life who is an extra hard working stay at home mom. Here are some great ideas to show them how much they truly mean to you.


Schedule a Spa Day

There are few things in the world that can compare to a complete spa day package. Depending on your budget, you can treat them to a full day unlimited treatment deal, or look for something that charges per hour and pay for a couple hours. Look for local spas online to find what works best for you. When you pay for it, don’t forget to include gratuities so that she has nothing to worry about when she goes on HER day!

Treat Her to a Romantic Night Out

If she is a stay at home mom, she would appreciate the gesture of a night out every now and then. What better time than the romantic holiday season? Get dressed up, pay for her makeup and hair, make reservations somewhere fancy or possibly go to a restaurant you haven’t been to in a while. Whatever you come up with, she’s sure to like it if you make the night all about her!

Let Her Get Away

Talk to some of her girlfriends secretly and see if they can plan a weekend for them all to get away. It will be nice for her to get some time with her friends and away from the family. Sometimes all moms want is a little space so help make it happen. It may take some secrecy and planning, but you can pull it off if you really really try!

Mix brown sugar with lemon (or calamansi), honey, and olive oil (will try other edible oil as replacement) and scrub into hands and nails for a minute. The mixture would make the cuticles soft and easy to remove. If you have a wooden coffee stirrer, you can use it to push back cuticles. Your hands will look clean, soft and manicured after this.
