    <p><span style="font-family:georgia,serif;">I love green smoothies, playing with makeup, and all things Asian! My beauty philosophy: Take care of your skin first and foremost. My health philosophy: Don't diet. Instead of always thinking about things you shouldn't be eating, focus on getting enough nutrients each day. Changing your lifestyle takes small changes over a long period of time. Don't try to do it over night. Check out my health and beauty blog tutusnunicorns.blogspot.com! </span></p>

  1. 1. Queen Helene's Mint Julep Mask: $3.99 I recommend using this mask once a week, or whenever you feel like your skin is going to break out. It does a great job of halting breakouts without drying out your skin. It is very cooling and feels awesome! 2. St. Ives Apricot Scrub: $4.29 This exfoliator works far better than any high end exfoliator I have ever tried. Everyone raves on Kate Sommerville’s “Exfolikate” ($22), but I find this scrub to be much more effective at removing dead skin. Use 1-2 times weekly. Next, let’s talk about body care. 3. Olay Ultra Moisture Body Wash with Shea Butter: $4.79 This is the only body wash I have ever used that makes me feel like I can skip lotion and still have silky, hydrated skin after my shower. Great stuff. 4. Tree Hut Shea Sugar Body Scrub in Coconut Lime: $6.99 Body scrubs can get very pricey if you start looking at high end brands. And if you want my opinion, there’s no reason to shell out all that extra money on something that you’re going to rinse down the drain anyways. I use this scrub as an all-over exfoliator as well as on my legs before I shave. The drugstore has a lot to offer when it comes to good hair products. I don’t use a lot of product in my hair, but the products I’m mentioning are things I use on a very regular basis, and have been part of my routine for about a year now. 5. Tresemme Heat Tamer: $5.99 If you're someone who heat styles your hair often, a great heat protectant is a must. This one gets the job done and leaves your hair feeling nice and smooth. 6. L’oreal Evercream Shampoo and Conditioner: $5.99 each I'm obsessed with this stuff. It works as well as salon products that I've tried and is a fraction of the price! I have naturally dry and course hair, so taming it can be somewhat of a beast. If you have similar hair, give this stuff a try. You won't regret it. And now to the good stuff- makeup. 7. Burt’s Bees Pomegranate Chapstick: $3.99 I have tried TONS of lip balms and, aside from straight vaseline, this is the only one that improves the overall health of my lips. A lot of other lip balms feel great when you first use them, but leave my lips feel dehydrated by the end of the day. 8. Maybelline Great Lash Mascara- Clear: $6.79 I know what you’re thinking. But, let me stop you right there. I don’t actually use this as a mascara. Instead, I use it as a brow gel. It works just as well as any high end brow gel at a fraction of the cost. Save your splurges for fun stuff like eyeshadow or blush. 9. Real Techniques Powder Brush: $9.99 I’m not gonna say that expensive brushes aren’t awesome. I know as well as the next girl that good brushes can completely change the appearance of your makeup. But, we don’t all have $50 to shell out for a powder brush. If you’re like me, try this brush. It’s super soft, applies powder evenly, and holds up very well. I’ve washed mine countless times and it still looks brand new. 10. Rimmel Stay Glossy Lipgloss: $3.79 My favorite shade is called “Non-Stop Glamour.” This lipgloss is perfect if you’re someone who can’t stand super sticky glosses. It applies beautifully and has just enough color to brighten up your face. This gloss pretty much lives in my purse.
  2. I think the best body scrub for its price is the tree hut shea sugar scrubs. There are four different scents and they are all amazing. They are only $6 for 18 oz and they do a great job exfoliating! Don't get me wrong, I love some high end scrubs, but to be honest, they all pretty much do the same thing and it's something you use a lot of each time so you tend to go through it fairly quickly. Are there any other drugstore scrubs that you would recommend?
  3. The thing that has made the biggest difference in my skin is doing weekly at-home facials. 1. Cleanse with your normal cleanser 2. Exfoliate 3. Open pores by either steaming with steamer or you can just boil distilled water on the stove and use that OR you can get a wash cloth wet with hot water and lay over your face for 30 seconds, pressing into your skin. 4. Apply a face mask (if blackheads are an issues I would highly recommend a charcoal mask- origins has a great one- the charcoal will draw the impurities out of your skin). 5. Rinse off 6. Apply moisturizer 7. Apply spot treatments where necessary. Hope this helps!
  4. 1. Wash your pillow cases at least twice a week 2. Use a new face towel every time you dry your face. 3. Sanitize your cell phone regularly. 4. Stop touching your face. 5. Drink tons of water. 6. Eat lots of fruits and vegetables. 7. Always remove your makeup before bed.
  5. I recently switched up my skincare routine. I've used clinique cleanser and moisturizing gel for years and I will continue to use them. Here is my current routine: Morning: cleanse: Clinique toner: eau roma water from lush moisturizer: Clinique moisturizing gel Evening: remove eye makeup with makeup wipe cleanse: philosophy purity made simple toner: clarins treatment: philosophy clear days ahead pads (love these so far!!) moisturize: clinique moisturizing gel **If my skin feels particularly dry I use Michael Todd hyralonic acid serum mixed with Clinique moisturizer** This seems to be working great so far! I have combination acne-prone skin
