Here’s an interesting fact for anyone looking for animal-friendly beauty and skincare products: in today’s technologically advanced world, products do not need to be tested on animals in order to be deemed safe for you and me. That means, if you want, you can buy only cosmetics that don’t bring animals into the equation, which is really cool. If cruelty free is important to you, the best thing to do is get to you know your brands. Read the label beyond the tag line – you want to know the facts.

The benefits of using oil on your skin instead of moisturizers: Using oil on your skin actually tricks it into thinking that it doesn’t need to produce more oil. When your skin thinks it needs to produce more oil that’s when the super shiny skin and acne hits.

  • – Oil reduces clogged pores by dissolving “plugs”, blackheads, and whiteheads
  • – Oil reduces the formation of fine lines and wrinkles
  • – All natural oils contain no harsh chemicals
  • – Oil won’t strip your skin of it’s natural oils
  • – Oil moisturizes and soothes irritated skin
  • – Oil clears acne and prevents it

Count on a bold lip to make a beauty statement with minimal effort. Reach for your favorite lipstick or crayon to add a pop of color. A bold lip allows for the rest of your make-up to be minimal and kept more neutral. Layer your lips using a lip balm first to ensure they are not dry or chapped before applying your lipstick.

Moisturizer might seem harmless, but you’ll save your skin — and a whole lot of cash — if you stop overloading your face with the stuff. “People with oily skin may develop breakouts and premature aging if they over-moisturize their skin. Use just enough moisturizer to keep your skin feeling clean and healthy and don’t overdo it. Excessive use of moisturizer can cause your skin to actually secrete less of its own essential oils, since it’s getting it artificially from the moisturizer.”


Jen Chae (From Head to Toe)

I’m a huge advocate of finding confidence and beauty in yourself from the inside out. While that’s easy to say, it’s much more difficult hearing that message when we are constantly bombarded by images of airbrushed perfection in every magazine and TV screen. It’s important to remember that we are all human with our flaws and imperfections intertwined with our natural beauty. I don’t think makeup should be a mask to hide what we are afraid of, but instead a means of expressing creativity and feeling beautiful and confident! Once we embrace ourselves in our most vulnerable state we can appreciate the fun of things like makeup and fashion that much more.

I try to go makeup-free whenever I can since it’s best for your skin. Obviously not on filming days or when I’m meeting with companies or clients, but when I’m staying at home and need to run to the post office, I don’t mind stepping out bare-faced.

Without fail, I travel with small versions of my favorite facial mist and facial oils. Every couple hours, I’ll apply oil, and spritz my face. The dry airplane air can really take a toll on the skin, especially after 12 hours straight, but I notice the hugest difference in the texture and tone of my skin if I’m consistent about caring for it while in flight. As long as your bottles are under 100 ml, you should not have a problem.

One of my favorite ways to wash my face involves something right out of the kitchen – coconut oil! Not only is it great for almost every skin type, but it’s got a lot of fabulous benefits for your skin. In fact, I do this every morning. And not only is it super effective, but it will help your skin with a slew of concerns from redness, to acne, to dry skin and so much more.

{Streamline your morning beauty routine} Stick to Multi-Use Products Any product that can do more than one thing is your friend. Try an SPF lotion that’s also a tinted moisturizer, so you can skip the face cream and foundation. And try a cream blush that’s also a lip color.


Mary Hood Luttrell (The Every Girl)

Mix liquid foundation with a drop of moisturizer to create custom coverage and a natural finish.

Why it helps: This method is ideal for those with dry skin as it allows foundation to look more natural and less cake-y. How to do it: Begin with one pump of foundation and a small amount of day cream on the back of your hand. Mix them together and apply (use your preferred method). Vary the ratio of foundation to moisturizer to suit your needs.
