Four ways to help dry skin.
- Rose and lavender work wonders in calming skin inflammation, according to Michele VanLandingham, ingredient information specialist for Dr. Hauschka Skin Care.
- Olive oil is also a great cure for all things dry, including peeling cuticle.
- Prevent dead-skin pileup by using a pumice stone in the shower—and don’t be tempted into using a razor. That will only cause more skin to grow back.
- Pamper your feet with moisturizing facial masks.

So if a natural ingredient that’s being touted in a product’s name or packaging is near the end of the ingredient list, you can bet that there’s not actually a lot of it in the bottle or tube. (After all, natural ingredients cost more—so for big brands trying to make big margins, the bulk of the ingredients they use are actually cheaper derivatives and preservatives.) Here are some easy tips on label-reading.
This is a great infographic on how to do winged eyeliner on your eyes from Divine Caroline who says There’s really nothing more classic than a winged eyeliner look, commonly referred to as the ‘cat eye.’ It’s such a sleek, clean look, but it can be difficult to achieve without the proper technique.

Or a dad from his fond son and heir.
And you can’t part the hair on a bald-headed man,
For there’ll be no parting there. ~Billy Bennett
