Caffeine Addiction at Its Best: Exfoliate Naturally


Unfortunately, it’s impossible to remove cellulite completely, however, 

there are things we can do to reduce its appearance.  Indie Lee, founder of the all-natural skincare line Indie Lee & Co, shares one of her at-home recipes for an all-natural scrub containing her favorite ingredient: coffee. The caffeine works to dehydrate fat cells and when broken down, acts as a natural exfoliant!

What You Need:
·         ½ ounce of sweet almond oil
·         2 tablespoons coffee grinds (espresso roast)
·         5 tablespoons coconut oil
·         ¾ cup of arrowroot powder (natural alternative to talc powder)

How to Make It:
1.       Combine coffee grinds and sweet almond oil in a large bowl and mix.
2.       Add coconut oil and mix well.
3.       Fold in the arrowroot powder.  Make sure all the coconut clumps are gone.

*Indie Tip: She likes to keep the mixture refrigerated for a day to make it easier to scoop out, like butter.

5 Winter Beauty Tips From a Celebrity Makeup Artist

By Brooke Glaser for Beauty & Confidence

Even if you love a winter wonderland, your skin may not. The chilly, dry air and shorter days can bring on a dry, dull complexion. In my job as a celebrity makeup artist, I have a few tricks up my sleeve to help you appear glowing all year long.

The secret is having the right products to create the perfect look. Here are the five that I swear by:

1. A healing ointment. A tube of Aquaphor does triple-duty against chapped skin. I always have a tube on hand to soothe dry lips, hydrate rough patches of skin and soften cuticles. It especially works wonders if you apply it before bedtime. I always have a tube on hand.

2. Tinted moisturizer. Many women make the mistake of reaching for a heavier cover-up during the winter, believing that their pale complexions need extra coverage. But this can lead to a caked-on look. Instead, I recommend a light tinted moisturizer: It hydrates and brightens at the same. The result: Dewy skin that stands out in the crowd. Simply use a shade or two lighter than your summer color, and apply with a sponge brush. Then pat off any excess product with a tissue.
