Quickie DIY Face Masks

Quickie DIY Face Masks

As someone who has very pale and sensitive skin, I would never go crazy with a DIY face mask. I stick with tried-and-true, natural ingredients like coconut oil (a great skin softener…side note: you can also use it to remove eye makeup!), egg (this helps fight sagging skin), honey (it has antibacterial properties, making it a good acne fighter), lemon juice (a natural astringent), and avocado (this boosts moisture). Come fall, pumpkin is also worth adding into the mix since it’s full of antioxidants and vitamins that help prevent wrinkles. Not only are these masks quick to whip up – and odds are they won’t even entail a trip to the supermarket – but they’re cheap and free of synthetic ingredients and chemicals. A simple face mask is likely to be less irritating than most commercial products. Here’s a look at some easy recipes to try now!

Hangover Cures

Hangover Cures: Instant Gratification Facial Treatments

It’s that time of year when our bodies are being pushed to the limit, both mentally and physically. We are all crazy-busy between shopping, cooking, decorating, and maybe traveling. Add the endless parties, nice wines, and late nights, and who takes the real beating? Your skin! Then you need to look good all over again the next day, so what do you do? Booking a facial would be ideal, but let’s be serious: Squeezing in an appointment like that just isn’t feasible. Santa is the only who’s able to stop time around here.

The Luxury of Beauty: All About Eve by Eve’s

As much as I love the big box Sephora or Nordstrom experience, there’s a lot to be said for a well-curated boutique where you know that every last item in the store is of the highest caliber. Such is the case with Eve by Eve’s, a gorgeous shop located in the heart of Beverly Hills.

Charlotte Tilbury x Snob Essentials: The Uptown Girl

Tina’s made no secret of loving all things Charlotte Tilbury, from the Magic Cream that started it all to the Goddess Skin clay mask; so when she was asked to participate in the beauty authority’s 10 Women Takeover blog series, I have to imagine there was no hesitation.

Ling Herbal Clay Clarifying Mask

Ling Herbal Clay Clarifying Mask: Clay Date

I went on my first beach vacation of the season this weekend, which meant I applied heaps of sunscreen on my face every two hours as prescribed. By the end of each day, my pores were so clogged they felt as if they were filled with concrete.
