You keep hearing it, “Drink more water!” But by the time the sun has set you realize you’ve only consumed a paltry two glasses. Here are a few tricks to stay hydrated. Upon rising, drink a large glass of water. Think about it. You have been asleep for at least eight hours and haven’t had a single drop of water. Your body is dehydrated. Drinking a robust amount of water in the morning combats that dehydration. While at work do you notice that you easily forget to drink water? I like to take a sip of water every time I do something repetitive. Designate something that you do often as.
LED FACIALS Holistic Facials in Peoria? Yes! Looking for a non-invasive way to boost collagen? Ever hear about Light Therapy? NASA scientists were looking for a way to heal astronauts in space and discovered that different colored lights could penetrate the skin at different levels, seriously affecting change.

What To Expect at Your First Brazilian Wax Hard Wax Vs. Cloth Strips If you are like most Wax Virgins, you may approach your first Brazilian Wax with a little bit of terror and whole lot of anxiety. Hold the Zanax, ladies! I’m going to explain what really goes on during a Brazilian Wax to ease your mind. You’ll want to arrive a little early to fill out some paperwork (easy so far, eh?).

What to know about Brazilian Waxing before you go. Here are some pointers for the uninitiated. The first thing you should do before your Brazilian Wax is stop shaving and make an appointment 2 to 5 weeks out. I know, that seems like an eternity, but your hair grows in cycles, and we can wax more hair during your appointment. Make sure that your appointment does not coincide with your menstrual cycle. The week prior to your cycle can be especially sensitive! Keep a trimmer handy and trim down the hair as it grows out. I really only need a 1/4 of an inch, or the size of a grain.

This simple machine replenishes moisture levels in your room. How to maximize its effect? Moisturize your face and body with a lotion that has humectants. How do humectants work? They draw water to your skin! Yay! Just what you need. Some popular examples to look for in a moisturizer are: glycerin, hyaluronic acid, and propylene glycol, sodium pca. 2. Keep your body lotion in the shower. Yes, sometimes you have to trick yourself. Who wants to step out.
How can you eat and drink your way to beauty? This winter try beets. This amazing superfood brings a powerful punch to the table.
