Feb 19, 2016 04:20 AM EST | By Florence May P. Jose
There are numerous beauty hacks and DIYs scattered all over the Internet, but which of them are effective and beneficial to you? Would you trust a nobody - an anonymous maybe - who says you should put oats on your face?
What if that person is Bobbi Brown? The namesake and founder of one of the biggest and best make-up companies in the world.
Through the Food Network's "The Kitchen" show, the beauty guru and makeup mogul shared three homemade remedies and recipes for any common skin or beauty problem every girl has ever experienced.
"Beauty from the Inside Out" Smoothie
In a blender, put in 1 cup of ice, add in 1 cup coconut milk, ¼ cup cocoa powder, 2 tablespoons of chia seeds, 2 scoops of chocolate protein powder, ½ frozen organic banana, a handful of frozen organic cherries and ½-1 cup kale. Blend in and shake until desired consistency and enjoy.
According to StepIn2.com, the benefits of the fruits combined with chia seeds will not only do good to our immune system and give us loads of vitamins and minerals, but it will only reflect the good effects of this through a radiant and glowing skin!
Homemade Lip and Hand Scrub
In a medium bowl, combine 2 tablespoons of brown sugar and 2 tablespoons of honey. Use the paste as lip balm and a hand scrub. Use the sugar granules to exfoliate the skin. After some time, around 10 minutes, rinse off and dry with a damp towel.
Regular exfoliating of the skin is essential so that our skin will be moisturized. According to lovetoknow.com, using natural ingredients such as sugar combined with honey that has organic properties to soothe the skin while exfoliating is better instead of commercially prepared products.
All Natural Face Mask
If you do not want to spend money on ready to use face masks that you will only use once, try out this home hack by Brown. She instructs mixing 2 tablespoons of honey with ½ cup plain yogurt-full fat and 1 tablespoon oatmeal. Apply the mixture all over your face and leave it on for 5 minutes. You can redo the masking (with a new batch, of course) once every week.
Campbell Soup has announced it will sell its Danish baked snacks manufacturer Kelsen Group to CTH Invest, a Belgian holding company affiliated with the Nutella maker Ferrero, for $300 million. The transaction is subject to customary purchase price adjustments, and it is expected to be completed in the first quarter of fiscal 2020.
The newly appointed editor-in-chief of Esquire Magazine, Michael Sebastian, recently told the press that he wants to get away from the idea that the magazine's reader is "a middle-aged white guy who likes brown liquor and brown leather"). Which should send chills down the ad dept's spine working on those Scotch and bourbon accounts!
Adding a squeeze of fresh lime and a dash of salt to a lager or pilsner has long been Mexican tradition, and in the 1980s, this practice evolved into the refreshing beer cocktail known as a michelada. The popularity of the drink grew across Mexico and, thanks to the influx of immigrants, it translated well to restaurants and bars across the U.S.
Rosé wine is made in almost every region in the world, from many different grape varieties. And rose-colored wine is produced in a sweet, dry, sparkling, and even fortified style. Yet the classic style of dry rosé wine from Provence sets the trend that many other wine-producing regions around the world want to emulate.
Dominique Ansel moved from Paris to New York City to work at Daniel Boulud's French flagship Daniel as the executive pastry chef, a position he held for 6 years. Fast forward 15 years later, and Ansel has become a household name after the invention of a certain croissant-donut hybrid, and his namesake bakery has expanded beyond SoHo to include branches around the world.
As if you ever really need an excuse to order a piña colada, today is National Piña Colada Day, so go ahead and order that creamy, sweet, cocktail-meets-dessert libation that is best served on a sunny, tropical beach somewhere exotic.
