Everyone is always asking us how to use your flat iron to create loose, large waves in their hair. Today, we reveal the secret. As shown here, start to rotate your wrist toward the bottom of the piece of hair you are working on. For a tighter curl, start closer to the scalp. If your hair usually holds a curl, you’re ready to go. If it has the tendency to drop when you leave the house, put a mist of light hairspray before you bounce. No pun intended!

You’ve heard that phrase many times before, but this time we mean it in a totally different way. While you’re having fun in the sun & sipping on a Margarita, or Corona with lime, you’re putting your skin at serious risk. The month of May is Skin Cancer Awareness month, and we want to be sure that all of our readers take extra precautions to protect their skin.
The combination of citrus on your skin that is exposed to the sun can cause a severe chemical burn. The reaction is called phytophotodermatitis. The severity can vary based on exposure, but we also like the phrase “better safe than sorry”.
One of the worst parts about this scary situation, is that you cannot feel it happening. 24 hours after exposure, your skin will blister, and trust us it is PAINFUL! Not to mention, the burns can leave permanent scars.
To prevent this painful reaction, wash any skin exposed to citrus immediately before returning to the sunshine. This includes the sides of your mouth!
Now pass the guacamole! Ole!
Awkward bodies, college applications, number of Instagram followers, and a prom date. These are all things that teens worry about on a day to day basis. Unfortunately, we have one more thing to add to the list – skincare.
In honor of Skin Cancer Awareness month, we would like to remind you of the importance to start taking care of your skin at a young age. It is better to build a skin care routine before you have wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, and other lovely skin concerns, than to wait until they arise and have to treat them. Starting young will save you money and stress in the future.
Luckily, there are special products on the market that are specifically formulated to care for young skin. We recommend using these before graduating to products meant to correct damage.
We suggest cleansing and moisturizing at first. Work these into your everyday shower routine. Once a day is sufficient if you have normal skin. If you have acne prone skin, you can use a spot treatment to battle zits immediately. One of the toughest parts of being a teen is unpredictability. Luckily, a spot treatment can correct the problem overnight. Invest early in a scrubbing tool if you’re really ready to begin treating your skin!
Being a teen is crazy enough without skin problems, and so is being an adult. Start to treat your skin right at an early age! You won’t regret it.
