Picture this scenario: It’s 4:00pm on a Friday afternoon. You had a long, stressful week at work. Meetings with clients, conference calls, several different projects to complete, paperwork, etc…But, it’s all good because the week-end is finally here and you are looking forward to a night out with some of your closest girlfriends…It’s now 11:30pm and you have just stepped into the classiest lounge in town. You and your girlfriends are looking fabulous, the music is great and the ambiance is perfect. This is exactly what you needed to help you relax a little and forget about your week. Except for one thing missing……THE DRINKS!!!!

In order to get a natural glowing skin, it is essential that you first adopt a proactive skin care approach. Simply put, it means using a solid skin care regimen to prevent your skin from aging prematurely. A youthful natural glowing skin doesn’t necessarily depend on your age. You can be in your 20’s but look like you are in your 40’s and vice versa (you probably know someone personally or know of someone who fits this description). What’s important is rather how you treat your skin (and body), that’s the secret.You can’t really reverse the aging process (unless you go under the knife!) but you can however slow down prematurely aging skin. This is why a proactive skin care approach is important. When it comes to your skin care, do not be reactive and look for a solution once a skin problem has risen. Instead be proactive.

They do not realize the fact that glowing skin comes with a healthy skin. Your skin should receive nutrients from within the body.

In this review, we will be discussing about few natural herbs that can work wonders for your skin. These are simple homemade remedies and that are inexpensive and effective.

Appealing Aid for Feet

The fruit makes a superior skin softener, says Robin Jones, the spa director at the Lake Austin Spa Resort, in Austin, Texas, who developed this mask for weatherworn heels: Mash half a banana in a bowl, mix in a few drops of honey, then massage into your heels.

Depending on how you apply your makeup, your deep-set eyes can go from sunken looking to sultry in a blink, says Tina Turnbow, a celebrity makeup artist based in New York City. “Instead of using flat, dark brown or charcoal eye shadows on your lids, sweep a pale, shimmery color from lash line to crease,” she advises. Light will reflect off the pigments and bring your eyes forward ever so slightly so that they don’t seem as recessed. Finish with brown mascara.
