Why I Wear Natural Makeup

Posted by on Oct 24, 2014 in Beauty, Featured | 0 comments

Did you know that the average woman who wears makeup puts on roughly 100 toxic ingredients on their face every day? WOAH. That’s a lot of toxic ingredients going on your skin! Many of those toxins are linked to hormone disruption and even cancer. Not worth it. That’s why I buy NATURAL makeup. It took me a long time to find natural makeup that looks great on me. No, it’s not gonna make me look like a super model – and that’s OK. It helps me be the best version of ME. :) I use mascara by @josiemarancosmetics and my concealer, tinted moisturizer, powder, and eye shadows are from @100percentpure. My lip balm is organic peppermint by Dr. Bronner’s.   Feel free to follow Skinny Twinkie: Google+, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram, YouTube Feel free to follow Skinny Twinkie: Google+, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram,...

10 Oils with Natural SPF

Posted by on Jun 10, 2014 in Beauty | 0 comments

I think Sunblock is great – especially when it’s non-toxic and safe for your body. If you’d really like to go all natural with your sunblock, you can use oils to provide you with your sun protection needs! I’ve heard of people using coconut oil or olive as a natural SPF, but after seeing what their SPF rating it, neither of those two oils have enough sun protection for my fair skin. I believe that something is better than nothing, but I would definitely look at using carrot seed oil or raspberry oil for an all natural sunblock. Oils with the Most Sun Protection Factor (SPF) Carrot Seed Oil: SPF 38-40 Raspberry Seed Oil: SPF 28-50 Wheatgerm Oil: SPF 20 Avocado Oil: SPF 4-15 Coconut Oil: SPF 2-8 Olive Oil: SPF 2-8 Macadamia Nut Oil: SPF 6 Almond Oil: SPF 5 Shea Butter: SPF...

Stop Adding Toxins To Your Body

Posted by on Jan 6, 2014 in Beauty | 0 comments

One of my resolutions for 2014 is to stop adding toxins to my body. It’s something I have already been working towards, and I am pushing myself to use better products for a healthier body. Check out this image below. As you can see, we are adding hundreds of toxic chemicals to our  body on a daily basis. These toxins don’t come without side effects to our overall health. Your personal care and beauty products are damaging the body’s organs, cause allergies, hormonal imbalances and linked to cancer – just to name a few. YIKES! You can’t tell me that these products are worth all of those things! Throughout the year I plan on educating myself and my readers about what’s in the personal care and beauty products so you know why you should ditch them – and I’ll...

How to Use Coconut Oil For Your Beauty Routine

Posted by on Aug 2, 2012 in Beauty | 0 comments

How to Use Coconut Oil For Your Beauty Routines If you don’t already know…I love coconut oil. Love it! I keep finding more uses for coconut oil, which makes me quite happy! Check out how coconut oil can be used for your beauty routine. Night Cream My sister, who has been a licensed Esthetician for almost ten years, was the first to recommend coconut oil as a night creme. The antioxidants are great for smoothing fine lines and wrinkles while you sleep. Apply coconut oil to your face at night for amazing moisturizing benefits. I personally use coconut oil as a night cream and I absolutely love it. Talk about an effective (and cheap!) Under-Eye Cream! Just remember that a little bit goes a long way! Makeup Remover You can dab a cotton ball will coconut oil and easily wipe off your makeup. Rinse your face...

High Heels: Fashion vs. Health

Posted by on Mar 26, 2012 in Beauty | 0 comments

High heels can turn a simple outfit into a freakin’ cute one. My question is, are high heels really worth the discomfort when you consider the health risks involved? The Stiletto Effect Here’s what Stilettos are doing for your overall health: Stilettos not only can cause aching feet, but they can also cause long-term ankle, knee, and back damage. Dr. Conin, a biochemist at the University of Finland, says that women who wear heels actually walk differently, and more dangerously, compared to women who wear flats – even after they’ve taken off their stilettos! Women who wear heels have an increased amount of bone-on-bone force in the knee, damaging the muscles and tissue around the knee joint which can lead to osteoarthritis. If you wear high heels every day, your calf muscles can shorten by up to 13%. This means that your heels will cause your...
