Knowing When to Toss Your Makeup

It is easy to ignore the tiny symbols that are on your bottles, tubes, and containers of makeup. You probably have seen these markings hundreds of times as they appear on all of the products that you use. This includes toothpaste, shampoo, and nearly all of your makeup. However, as you are probably unaware of what it means, you tend to overlook it.

Actually, these little symbols are trying to tell us just how long we should use our makeup and beauty products for. Much like everything else, your makeup has an expiration date as well.

Thanks to mightygoods.com for creating this helpful infograph!

Maybe it’s time to do a beauty product purge and get rid of those products you may not have known were out of date!

Homemade Sugar Scrub

Homemade Sugar Scrub

It’s getting around that time of year, when the air gets colder and dryer. This means time to add exfoliation into our beauty regime if it is not already! Exfoliating is very good for your skin, and not just your face but your whole body!

Check out this super quick and easy DIY body scrub, perfect for fall!

You need sugar and oil! The sugar and oil can changed depending on your personal preference. When choosing a sugar to use, keep in mind the grain size. Smaller grains will not feel as rough on the skin, so light brown sugar would be best for sensitive skin.

For my scrub I used Brown Sugar and Olive Oil.

2 Cups Brown Sugar

1 Cup Olive Oil

You can make how ever much of the scrub you want, just use two parts sugar and one part oil.

Enjoy and have a happy fall!
