1.) Silk Pillowcase-

Consider this an excuse to splurge on fancy new pillowcases! Ever since I bought my silk pillow cases I have noticed it has done wonders for my skin and my hair!

Silk is natural material that is hypoallergenic (which is really good) and also is packed with amino acids. Because of this it absorbs moisture and adjusts to all temperatures which means your skin won’t be sticking to a sweaty pillowcase and accumulating pore-clogging oils. Your hair will stay soft and static free as you snooze away to dream land!

2.) Water Purifiers 

Unfiltered, hard water contains tons of chlorine and toxins, which can really take their toll on your skin and strands. This is why water purifiers in the form of showerheads filters are huge! You will definitely see a huge improvement in your hair and skin! This is a MUST!

3.) Vaseline – all-purpose beauty product

Smooth flyways – I always have my mini Vaseline container with me at all times, everywhere I go there is one sitting beside me. Not only I use it moisture my lips and cuticle it’s great to tame frizz and seal dry spilt ends it is also great to keep unruly eyebrows in place.

Instant Highlighter – Swap your highlighter for Vaseline. Just dab a small amount on the high points of your face for a dewy, naturally luminous glow. Slide a bit down your shins to make your legs glow too.

After a long day of work I love to unwind, relax and have a hot bath! When I’m stress I love to use a face mask and rejuvenate my skin. Today I’m using The Face Shop Real Nature Face Mask in Red Ginseng, the benefits of using this mask is that the Ginseng extract with helps energizes and nourish tired skin.

I love these face masks they are so easy and cheap too! ($2.00 CAD) Each mask is 1 single-use and they come in a variety of types depending on what you want out of it and your skin type (dry,dull, aging etc.) The Face Shop offers a large selection so your bound to find one that suits your needs. For instance the Blueberry Face Mask is great for softening and hydrating where as the Kelp Face Mask is a purifying which is great if you are experiencing breaks outs or even if you wear makeup on a daily basis it’s great to clean and purify your pores.

They are quite simple to use, you unfold the face mask on freshly cleansed skin and leave on for about 10-15 minutes. You gently tap on the skin until the serum is completely absorbed and go ahead and follow up with a moisturizer
