Hey everyone, exciting news! We've done over 100 posts here on Face Cookie Daily and on the newsletter since last April. Inspired by our best posts and your feedback, we're now moving on from the Newsletter to another project: FaceCookieKitchen.com. There we'll be creating our own plant-based DIY-ing beauty recipes starting in early 2016...
Doing it all alone is tough. Generally, we have things that we pay other people to take care of like, cutting our hair, or fancy facials, or anything to do with a laser. We are fans of minimalism and DIY beauty, but there's sometimes when it's best hired out to the pros.
Here's a tip that's a good one for a natural makeup look (as natural as you get when wearing makeup).
For the most natural application, take a break after your base.
Working out is fun. It usually feels totally worth it and awesome right when you're in the middle of it. Or, when it's over. We love doing things to get us in shape, we just have to do them!
Today is our 100th post. We are delighted that you read our tips everyday and wanted to take this time to extend a big huge THANK YOU for reading and sharing our little newsletter.
We are changing all the time. We move through our lives in a constant state of flux: switching times, moving dates, lowering or highering our expectations. We flow through change as life pulses on.
Have you ever watched salmon jump upstream? We have. In Newfoundland there is a place we visited a couple of times where we had the opportunity to watch these beautiful fish fly over rocks and strong currents on their migratory journey. It's incredible.
Glycolic acid is the most common type of Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA). It is a chemical exfoliant, as opposed to a physical or manual one like a scrub or washcloth.
Glycolic is derived from sugar and works in skin preparations to break down dead skin cells, smoothing and refining the look and feel of the skin. Used regularly, it can help to keep skin clear and fresh-looking.
Take it from Andrea (she has a background as a makeup artist), cleaning makeup brushes is something you need to do. Depending on how you store them, if they are out in the open, in a drawer, or crammed into a makeup bag with a bunch of other products, they can get dusty, pick up particles from other products, and they touch your face all the time, so they should be spotless.
We're back to work and getting all into fall, but summer officially still has a couple more weeks left. Let this late-season-natural-beauty-wonder wow you.
We have this old book from 1975, The Handbook of Natural Beauty by Virginia Castleton. Virginia was the editor of Prevention magazine and wrote books on natural beauty. In this particular book, she has a strawberry mask, and talks about buying fresh ones and using them as a natural face mask.
Earlier this week we talked about cleaning out all your old makeup stuff. Today it's about organising what remains.
Oh smoothies. They used to be what you got at a Booster Juice or some other mall chain, but now they've been elevated to the best in breakfast. All you need is a blender (and neighbours that don't mind the noise).
You know when you're not planning on going somewhere, and you're not beauty-prepared? For example, you're hiking through the woods with your guy and get an invite to meet friends for drinks? Thing is, it's straight away and you're on the other side of town.
Ah, the makeup stash. You buy a couple things, toss them in a drawer, and slowly, over time, they multiply. Drawers, cupboards, bags become filled with products: Lip balms, lipsticks, creams, bronzers, shadows, colours you never wear, cheap things, expensive things, "miracles", unopened sample containers. It grows and grows... it's like it has a life of it's own!
Andrea here, I've been doing some redecorating lately. Painting my apartment, getting the rug cleaned, tossing things that hold no value, but take up physical and emotional space.
