Have a great holiday!

Sure, your exfoliating products all say “use daily” and some even suggest twice daily, but don’t believe everything they say. The cold, hard clinical fact is that too much scrubbing will actually slow down your cell turnover as your skin tries to protect itself. Slow cell turnover means faster signs of aging, dull looking skin and skin that will be more prone to break out from dead skin cell build up.
Groom your brows:
They say your eyes are the window to your soul, so let your eyebrows be your window treatments!! No makeup look is complete without the final framing, and filling in of the eyebrows. Cleaning up stray hairs and filling in your brows creates a polished look.
Get a monthly facial:
Without proper cleaning and exfoliation, you are really just applying your products to layers of dead skin cells. These professional treatments help reduce wrinkles and scarring, plus they help to brighten, increase elasticity, clean pores and smooth skin.
Have a great holiday!

Drink an extra glass of water. "Water helps clear the toxins that cause inflammation and blemishes. It also assists in transporting nutrients and oxygen to skin cells, and preventing dehydration, which can cause premature aging." It can even make skin appear fuller since the hyaluronic acid that naturally exists in skin will pull in and hold the water for a wrinkle-plumping effect.
Strip off your makeup before going to bed. Leaving makeup and dirt on skin doesn't just clog pores; it can cause excessive dryness and even skin dandruff. Don't forget to thoroughly remove eye makeup too. It can lead to bumpy rashes around the eyes .
Don't neglect your neck and chest. Most of us are guilty of stopping our skincare routine as soon as we hit our chin. And our neglected neck and chest take vengeance by wrinkling, sagging, and displaying dark spots that beg to be hidden by a turtleneck. "The skin on these areas is thinner, and doesn't have a strong blood supply, so it doesn't heal well," explains Amiry. "Plus it's an area that we often forget to protect with sunscreen." Use the same products as you would on your face, but start lightly (every other day) when applying active ingredients like retinols or acids since they may cause some initial irritation.

1. Simple Honey Face Mask
Raw honey is naturally anti-bacterial and a super quick way to get soft, beautiful skin. Once a week use a tablespoon or so of raw honey (not processed honey) and gently warm it by rubbing your fingertips together. Spread on your face. Leave on for 5 – 10 minutes and then use warm water to gently rinse it off and pat dry. Then bask in the glow of your honey-awesomeness.
2. All Natural Black Head Removal
Place 4 or 5 drops of raw honey on an open lemon wedge. Then rub the lemon on your face for a minute, emphasizing any trouble areas. Leave the mixture on for 5 minutes and rinse with cold water. (Keep in mind that citrus can make your skin photosensitive so it’s best to do this before bed rather than before going outside).
3. Take Care
Remember, the best beauty secrets are not quick fixes. They require good sleep, stress management, proper nutrition, and physical exercise. Remember that real beauty is a result of taking care (or “thanking”) your body on a daily basis. And by being you. Because you are beautiful.
