    Be A Savvy Shopper

    Shopping doesn’t have to empty out your pockets completely. In this economy, being a bit of a savvy shopper will come in handy. We are led to believe that, because a product costs more it will work best. It might take a little extra browsing time but, hey, who doesn’t want to take their time when it comes to shopping?

    Putting on a pretty face shouldn’t cost you tons. Take the NARS Highlighting/Bronzing Blush Duo for example. This is a combination of their most popular blush and bronzer and retails for $39. E.L.F. is like the dollar menu of make-up. All of their products are under five dollars. They have an almost identical product, the Contouring Blush & Bronzer Powder for only three dollars. Talk about a steal!

    Hair care is also important. When your hair looks bad it can throw an entire outfit off. While there are so many products promising healthy hair, they can be a bit costly at times. Suave offers a collection of affordable hair products. Their shampoo and conditioner for damaged hair renewal is only two dollars a bottle. Best of all you get the same results from Suave as you would from salon brand products.

    Let’s not forget our nails. Nail polish is our way of dressing them up. Essie and O.P.I. colors are vibrant and never lacking in color options. But, really, who wants to spend eight to $10 on nail polish? N.Y.C has a collection of all the hottest colors this season, and they’re only $1.99 each.

    Before dropping down a wad of cash on your next product, channel your inner savvy shopper and browse for the affordable version.

    Smudge Free Nails with Rapi Dry-July Giveaway

    Some products are just worth the splurge. The biggest reason I go the salon for my weekly mani/pedi, is so that I don’t accidentally smudge my nails. I don’t always have the time to wait for them to dry and I don’t have one of the quick dry machines either. There are sprays you can apply to the nails to speed up the drying process, but they leave my hands feeling greasy afterwards.

    For you on-the-go ladies, O•P•I has the solution. If you haven’t already tried, Rapi Dry Top Coat ($11.95) you must be made aware of that it works wonders. You brush it on your nails, as if painting them, and it dries in about five minutes to a hard glossy finish. With this you can do your nails on your own; smudge and streak free. Think of it as an investment for your nails.

    Eat Your Way To Healthy Skin

    Surely you’ve heard the expression, “you are what you eat”. It might be hard to put the sweets down and not give into the greasy temptations, but think about your health. As good as it might taste it isn’t doing any good to your body. Being cautious of your intake today will save you from a breakout tomorrow.

    Clinical nutritionist, Samantha Heller told WebMd, “The healthier the foods are that you consume, the better your skin will look.”

    Heller goes on to explain that the foods you eat eventually become part of you. Knowing what to eat and what will benefit whatparts of your body is essential in living a healthy life. That being said, here are some of the foods you should keep around that will do your body some good:

    Anything high in antioxidants and Vitamin A is great. It keeps your immune system strong and skin experts say that a daily intake of Vitamin A will do the skin wonders. Low-fat dairy products contain a good amount of Vitamin A. Try low-fat yogurt or any of these fruits:

    • Blackberries
    • Blueberries
    • Plums
    • Strawberries

    Essential Fatty acids like the ones in canola oils and salmon will help keep your skin looking young, tight, and glowing. Also snacking whole grain breads, cereals and nuts like the following promotes stronger and healthier hair and nails (The protein from eggs is also good for your hair):

    • Walnuts
    • Cashews
    • Pecans
    • Almonds

    When it comes to beverages green tea is a safe choice and an alternative to sodas and syrupy drinks. The tea contains anti-inflammatory properties and has proven to reduce the damage done from the sun’s harmful rays. Not only that, but it’s been tested to prevent and reduce skin cancer. While green tea is beneficial, water is the best way to stay hydrated. Drinking it flushes the toxins out of you and keeps your skin clear.

    Start treating yourself to healthier skin. Incorporating these foods and making it a part of your lifestyle, not just a diet, will benefit your entire your body head to toe.

    Odorless Nail Polish Remover

    Sometimes you need to change your nail polish at inconvenient places.

Fortunately for you and those around you while you’re removing nail polish, there’s a solution. Honeybee Gardens, a naturally based cosmetic company, has an odorless nail polish remover. It’s even beneficial for your nails. The polish remover protects your cuticles with the help of aloe and vitamin E. Honeybee’s formula also includes horsetail extract to strengthen the nails. The odorless polish remover can be purchased on their website for $6.99 and there’s a sample size for $2.99. This product would go great with Revlon’s scented nail polish.

    Honeybee’s nail polish is also worth the try. Being that it is also odorless, it doesn’t have the toxic fumes regular nail polish does. Their nail polish is water based, doesn’t peel off, and dries in half the time as others do. You get to choose out of 21 different colors for $6.99 a bottle.

    Detox Your Body & Skin

    Don’t underestimate the benefits of lemon. They’re high in vitamin C, which not only helps fight bacteria but also reduces the risk of developing cancer. It’s clear now why so many body cleanses include lemon as a main ingredient. Cleanses might not be for everyone, but you can still benefit from it in other ways.

    Body: Squeeze a lemon into your water bottle. It flushes the toxins out of your body and helps with your digestive system.

    Nails: Use it to bring your nails back to life. Have you ever noticed your nails looking a little stained or yellowish?  They might not be getting enough nutrients and it’s a clear indicator that you need to start getting more vitamins A and C. You don’t even need to go to the nail salon for this treatment. Stick your nails into two lemon halves for 5 minutes. It will instantly brighten your nails.

    Skin: For acne; rub the lemon juice on the skin to help clear it up.
