Every beauty fanatic knows that clear skin is the basis to looking and feeling your best. Yet something so simple remains a constant struggle for many women and men who always seem to be on the quest for the latest product claiming to banish blemishes.
Enter GlamGlow. A miracle mud mask that vacuums out the dirt and bacteria clogging pores, instantaneously leaving you with better skin. Originally created in 2010 for the Hollywood elite, word of GlamGlow’s unique results spread so quickly that it was soon picked up by luxury retailers.
The GlamGlow SuperMud and YouthMud masks may look tiny, but they pack a powerful punch. GlamGlow’s super powers lie in its combination of ingredients including glycolic and mandelic acid, which clean and minimize pores, and fight signs of aging and scarring, while improving skin’s texture and pigmentation. Combined with GlamGlow’s new patent pending skincare technology, the mask is both highly effective, yet suitable for even the most sensitive skin. GlamGlow also boasts that it is cruelty free, vegan and 99.7% paraben free.
Fresh ingredients like volcanic pumice rock and French sea clay, joined by the soothing scent of eucalyptus leaf give this mask a luxurious day-at-the-spa feel. Apply a thin layer to clean skin (or specific problem areas), let dry and rinse off, and you’re just ten minutes away from attaining a red carpet worthy glow.
While skincare products play a big part of keeping your face looking healthy, sometimes the easiest way to create beautiful skin is from the inside out. Nutritionists and dermatologists have long said that what you put inside your body greatly affects how it will appear on the outside, you've heard the saying, you are what you eat! So what does that mean? Besides the obvious—eating greens, drinking water, avoiding caffeine—there are other products you can consume to ensure a perfect complexion. You might even save yourself from spending big bucks on cosmetics! Here are the products we like that create a naturally beautiful you:
One of the best things for maintaining a gorgeous appearance is vitamin E. This vitamin is an anti-oxidant, meaning it fights damages caused by free radicals (UV Rays, cigarette smoke, pollution etc.), locks in moisture and helps spread oxygen throughout the body. The result? Healthier looking nails, hair and skin. While dark leafy greens are the best way to get your vitamin E fix, a supplement like Carlson ACES antioxidant formula- vitamins A, C, E plus selenium, will work too.
Rooibos (pronounced “roy-boss”) is a herbal tea that hails form South Africa. It is packed with a blend of anti-oxidants, but unlike green tea, is naturally caffeine free. Rooibos, which translates into “red bush,” is great for fighting acne and reducing inflammation from eczema and sunburn, and it tastes a lot better than some other herbal teas. You can always add a little milk for a creamier flavor! Rooibos is available at most supermarkets and any natural health food store
This Italian-loved herb does more than add some flavor to your pasta; it’s fantastic for your body, too. Garlic is a natural anti-biotic that has long been known to fight skin infections and inflammations. The difference is that garlic doesn’t get rid of your body’s “good germs” and you won’t build immunity against it—it will continue to be effective as long as you take it. Crush a little garlic into your food or veggie juices as often as you can, or, if you’re not a big fan of the flavor, take a garlic supplement like Now Foods garlic tablets for similar results.

Want in on a dirty little secret? The secret is...you don't have to shampoo every day when you have Rockaholic's dry shampoo. A spritz and comb thru makes hair smell fresh and keeps it rockin' for one more night.
