Beauty Trends your afraid to try?

I love the look of red lipstick but never have the nerve to wear it. The few times I’ve tried I always wimp out and wipe it off right before I leave my house. Is there a beauty look you have always loved but been afraid to try? A short pixie cut, Brazilian bikini wax, dark smoky eyes?

Come join the discussion and tell us a trend you have always been afraid to try.

5 Tips for Radiant Skin!

I love She Knows… they have some great tips on keeping your skin healthy and glowing! They broke down 5 ways to have your skin radiant in no time!

Exfoliate.

Sure, you’ve heard that exfoliating your skin is important, but to achieve glowing skin, it is a must. Try exfoliators that contain alphy hydroxy acids such as glycolic acid. Try this: Givency Peel Me Perfectly Tri-Performance Skin Polish ($45), a triple-action scrub that contains glycolic acid to promote natural exfoliation and clay extract to cleanse skin and tighten pores.

Make a note: At-home peels are another effective path to smoother, more even-toned skin and generally contain up to 30 percent glycolic acid, whereas a dermatologist can use up to 70 percent concentrations for more dramatic results.

Detox your body.

It is true: The outside of your body reflects what’s going on on the inside. Skin conditions develop when the skin can’t do its job of eliminating toxins efficiently, which happens because the other eliminative organs are overloaded as well. Talk to a natural health care professional to find a detox program that works for you, or take a load off your system – and benefit your skin by doing the following:

  • Drink warm lemon water each day to help flush toxins from the body.
  • Cut out sugar and alcohol for a few days (at least 5) to give your body – and skin a break.
  • Up your intake of fresh fruits and vegetables to boost the amount of skin-saving nutrients you’re getting.
  • Limit salty snacks which can cause swelling and water retention.

Eat and apply antioxidants.

Antioxidants help fight free radicals and protect the skin from environmental damage. Some popular topical antioxidants include vitamins C and E, coenzyme Q10 and green tea, and there are many more. They can counter the damaging effects of the sun, reduce wrinkles and improve skin tone. Eat fruits and vegetables that contain these vitamins, as well, so you get them internally and externally. Fill your grocery cart with the following:

  • Strawberries, raspberries and blueberries
  • Dark, leafy greens (kale, spinach, collards)
  • Orange fruits and vegetables (mangos, squash, sweet potatoes)

Try coconut oil.

Virgin coconut oil has the ability to restore and rejuvenate damaged skin. It heals, repairs and leaves your skin radiant. Coconut oil has excellent antioxidant properties and helps to destroy free radicals. It can also even out your skin tone, giving it a more healthy-looking texture and a subtle glow.

Use radiance-boosting makeup.

Try the celebrities’ secret to glowing skin and that “lit from within” look: Apply an illuminating cream under your makeup. Check out Nars Illuminator ($29) to easily take your skin from dull to bright and healthy. Bronzers are also excellent for creating a healthy glow. Choose an illuminating rather than matte shade and apply everywhere the sun hits your face: forehead, nose and cheeks.
