IT'S GETTING HOT HOT HOT! 3 THINGS THAT YOU CAN DO TO PROTECT YOUR SKIN THIS SUMMER!

Summers almost here! You know what that means : hot beach trips, crazy festivals, delicious picnics and a lot of cool outdoorsy fun activities to enjoy! But all this fun in the sun can wreak havoc on your precious skin if you don't take the proper precautions. Here are 3 simple ways to enjoy your summer but also protect your healthy glowing skin :)




1.) I Scream, You Scream...For Sunscreen!


Sunscreen is the best way to protect your skin. The sun emits harmful rays that can penetrate and damage your skin slowly over time. These rays can be classified into two groups: UVA and UVB rays. UVA rays stand for Ultra Violet Aging Rays. These rays are responsible for collagen degradation and premature aging of the skin.

Ouch, ouch, ouch!! We've all experienced the dreaded sun burn! It burns and stings and your skin is peeling off like a poor little jungle snake. Well you can thank UVB rays for that, cause they're the responsible culprits! UVB rays stand for Ultra Violet Burning Rays, and they do exactly what they say...they burn! When you get a sunburn, you're causing severe, irreversible, damage to your skin. Your'e also risking your life! Melanoma which is a form of skin cancer is no joke and can be a serious life and health risk if not detected in time so you better think twice before you get your tan on!

Without proper daily protection, your skin will lose its natural youthfullness and glow to these suckers, so slather it up! Protect your fountain of youth and watch out for these rays. With a good broad-spectrum sunscreen, you'll be protected and ready to go! ;)

5 REASONS WHY I LOVE MY BOLD BROWS!


Growing up, I've always had a love-hate relationship with my brows. I always thought that as soon as I got the chance to tweeze them to hell, I would. I mean I never really hated them, my brows just never seemed to "fit-in" so to speak. Then I saw Brooke Shields in "Blue Lagoon" and my whole perception of my brows changed! She looked like a golden goddess and her brows were to die for! Thus my journey on brow-self acceptance began and I totally grew to love my little furry companions :) Here are 5 more reasons why I love my bold brows and why you (if you own a pair) should too!:




1.) They're fashionable.

Models and stars all over the world are rocking them on the runways and red carpets! Bold brows are easily becoming one of the biggest universal fashion beauty statements!
