Skin We All Envy

I'm sure we're all familiar with Liv Tyler, the actress whose skin is flawless and glowing without any makeup. Her skin is absolutely SUBLIME.

Skin Beauty Basics (What You Should Use), Collections That are Available

To get healthy skin, it's important to have a good moisturizer and cleanser. I suggest using a cleanser and moisturizer that are hypoallergenic, even if your skin isn't sensitive, you can never be too sure. Make sure the moisturizer is oil-free. It doesn't leave your skin all oily after putting it on. Cleanse and moisturize twice a day. Don't be lazy and skip a couple of days from cleansing and/or moisturizing. Another thing, make sure you drink 6 to 8 glasses of water per day. I know, you hear it all the time, but it's true. Water helps replenish and flush away the toxins and bacteria in the skin. You also get water from eating fruits and vegetables like pears, celery, apples. Celery is basically water based, and it's good for your digestive system.
You know the myth, if you have chocolate, you'll get zits? Not true. It's actually the caffiene in some chocolates that make pimples show up. If you drink coffee, or like to eat anything with caffiene on a daily basis, chances are that may be contributing to pimples. So, please try to avoid caffiene as much as possible. It's hard, but it will do you good in the long run.
For healthy, glowing skin, make sure you include lots of fruits and vegetables into your diet, don't smoke, protect your skin with sunscreen before going outside, have a skin regime that works for you, and get a good amount of sleep each night.

Do's and Don'ts For Dry Hair

I used to be a long time sufferer of dry hair. Dry hair is usually frizzy, lacks moisture, and is dry from the roots to the tips of hair. Dry hair usually means dammaged hair. Using the blow dryer, curling iron, straightening iron, and over-styling hair can make it all dry and frizzy. Also, colouring your hair often can put it into this state. Here are do's and don'ts to treat your dry hair.
DO use moisturizing shampoos and conditioners, a must for dry hair
DO use a leave in conditioner once a week (tip: after putting the conditioner in your hair, lightly pin it up and put a shower cap on over top. It creates more heat and activates the conditioner to make it work even better)
DON'T use the blow dryer after every time you wash your hair. Let hair air dry as often as possible after washing it (tip: limit yourself to using the blow dryer or other styling tools, like the curling iron or straightener for special occasions)
Here are some products I reccommend for dry hair

L'Oreal Vive Pro Colour Vive Shampoo and Conditioner

**This shampoo and conditioner works great on dry, coloured hair. Dual action UV Filters and Anti-Oxidants replenish porous hair shafts with moisture for healthier that keep colour longer

L'Oreal Vive Pro Nutri Gloss Conditioner

**I use this conditioner, and it leaves my hair feeling super soft and shiny. Nutri Gloss Conditioning Treatment with Pearl-protein complex adds shine and nourishes medium to long hair that's damaged. Each lifeless lock is infused with moisture that conditions without weighing down. Damaged hair is transformed into vibrant and healthy looking and shines from root to tip.

Garnier Fructis Fortifying Shampoo, Sleek and Shine
**Sleek and Shine gives sleek, smooth, manageable hair. Withstands 80% humidity
