"sleep is the best meditation."
morning can be a rough time for everyone. so to prevent those mornings when your alarm clock slaps you in the face, try these fool proof tips for waking up refreshed and ready to start the day, slap free. i like to keep things simple in the morning, so some good old r&r the night before makes my life a lot easier.
- skin: the key to glowing, clear skin is hydration, hydration, hydration. never skip washing your face and try to use a neutral, non-soap cleanser to get rid of that daily grime that accumulates (ew.)
- what's the deal with retinol?
- the new powerhouse in skin care, retinol is a vitamin a based skin treatment that prevents anti-aging. but the benefits don't stop there. retinol increases cell turnover which gives you clearer, brighter and more evenly toned skin. basically, it's magic. derms suggest using a retinol cream nightly before bed.
