  1. Our skin is a very sensitive organ of the body. Every day it goes through environment changes, temperature fluctuations, pollution, and dirt. While tackling with all of them, it has a great responsibility to secrete oils and sweat to protect itself from the outside world and maintain the body temperature. Basically, at the end of the day it not only gets exhausted, but goes into a dire need of nutrients to replenish its energy. A chemical product may give your skin instant glow, but it becomes a crutch. It makes our skin dependent upon chemical based products so much that if the product is not used, the skin starts falling into the worst conditions like dryness, acne, excess oils etc. Hence, plant based skin care brands are emerging to bring you a better option that will replenish all the natural oils and nutrients of your skin and make it naturally healthy. The natural and plant-based skin care products do not have harmful toxins that your body might intake through the epidermis’ habit of absorbing whatever is applied on it. A product like – the rejuvenator dry oil emulsion is made only of natural ingredients like apple stem cell, natural oils and herbs. After a long day, they provide your skin hydration, phytonutrients, and boost cell protection and collagen. Intake of these products through the skin is completely safe because they share the same biological chemistry as our bodies and blend in.
  2. Whether you’re a college girl who will be waking up for an 8am class and going out at night, or a super mom who will be juggling work, taking her kids to school, making dinner, and soccer games, makeup that lasts all day is extremely beneficial! Who wants to worry about reapplying five times a day? If you follow these tips, you can put on your makeup in the morning and not have to worry about those annoying touch ups! Start With a Clean Face Applying makeup to a fresh face is the best way to make it last. Make sure you remove your makeup at night and then wash your face in the morning before putting on your makeup. It’s also a great idea to use a good moisturizer, such as our Citrus Stem Cell Intense Moisture Lock Creme. It helps improve skin’s complexion, elasticity, and texture, and also smooths wrinkles. Use a Primer – On Your Face and Your Lids Makeup primer makes the perfect base because it helps minimize pores, erase imperfections, and makes your makeup look better and last longer. Make sure aside from using a basic primer that you use an eye primer as well. It’s a must if you are wearing eyeshadow or liner so that it looks as clean and crisp at night as it did when you first put it on! Choose Oil-Free, Long Lasting Products The products you choose make a huge difference. Products that aren’t oil-free may not last as long because the oils will eventually make them fade. Go ahead and spend that extra $2 for the foundation that says “long lasting.” It’s worth it! Don’t Forget Pressed Powder and Setting Spray Once your look is complete, finish your look with a pressed finishing powder and setting spray! These products are designed to keep your makeup in place and also help remove any excess oil. Keep Your Hands Away From the Finished Product Try not to touch your face throughout the day! Not only can touching your face lead to breakouts, but the oils on your skin will remove your makeup.
  3. With school and work back in full swing now that the holidays are over, you may be feeling a little overwhelmed trying to keep up with all you have to do! It’s totally normal to get stressed out as your to-do list grows, so don’t worry. Just follow these 5 steps to make sure you have a stress-free. Prioritize Your Health It may seem impossible, but you have to put your body and mind first in order to live a stress-free life! If you’re super hungry, not exercising, and running on 4 hours of sleep, chances are you are going to feel sluggish, and may even end up getting sick. Don’t See Stress As A Negative Thing If you correlate stress with negative emotions, of course you’re going to feel down and depressed! But, if you start to view stress as a positive thing, it won’t affect your mental health nearly as much, if at all! How can you view stress as positive, you ask? Being stressed means you are living a fulfilling life! Don’t Hang Out With People Who Stress You Out If you have a friend, co-worker, or relative that always seems to stress you out, try to avoid spending long periods of time with them while you already have a lot on your plate. It’s OK to say no, especially if you are looking out for your happiness and mental health! Don’t Be Afraid To Ask For Help If you’re extremely overwhelmed, it’s OK to reach out to a friend or family member for help. Don’t feel like you have to do it all by yourself! Having someone watch your kids for the evening or asking a classmate for help when you’re struggling are simple things that can release so much stress! Get Organized If you have a lot of clutter, either at home or at work, it can add to your stress level – even if you don’t realize it! By cleaning up, getting organized, and creating some sort of schedule for yourself, you’ll feel much better.
  4. Our goal at C2 California Clean is to promote healthy skin care and raise awareness to the dangerous ingredients in most beauty products. A lot of makeup brands use ingredients on our “leave it” list, so, we’ve created a list of 5 clean makeup brands that use all natural ingredients. Pair our skincare line with these products, and you’ve got yourself a safe and clean, yet very effective beauty routine! Credo Beauty From lipstick, to bronzer, to false lashes, Credo has any makeup product you may need! Their website reads “Credo stands for I “believe,” and we believe in a world of beauty where effective makeup and skincare products are safe and clean. We provide you eco-friendly and cruelty free and organic cosmetics that will give you the complexion you desire without causing any health issues.” NU Evolution “Beauty Without Toxicity” is NU Evolution’s motto. That’s exactly what we want for you! They also have a list of ingredients they refuse to use in their products, similar to C2 California Clean, and their brand was used during New York Fashion Week! Afterglow Cosmetics With makeup for the face, eyes, and lips, Afterglow offers a great range of natural products. They also have vegan makeup brushes for sale! Lotus Cosmetics Lotus’s website reads “Lotus Bio-Mineral is a natural cosmetics line designed to provide pure, natural and healthy beauty products. All of our products are safe for our customers and environmentally friendly”. They offer a couple different lipsticks, two different eyeshadows, a mascara, and some great face products as well! Jane Iredale Jane Iredale offers a huge line of all-natural makeup products that are worth trying out! Her goal when starting her company was to make products that look good, feel good, and are good for the skin. Her site offers some great beauty tips and an ingredient library.

  5. “As soon as we wish to be happier, we are no longer happy.” What is mindfulness? According to Merriam-Webster Dictionary, it is “the practice of maintaining a nonjudgmental state of heightened or complete awareness of one’s thoughts, emotions, or experiences on a moment-to-moment basis.” Being mindful is important because it can reduce our stress levels and lead to a happier life! When you are in control and aware of your thoughts and emotions, you will be able to handle situations better. This means that you will not become as overwhelmed or overly reactive to what is happening around you. So how can you be mindful? With practice, of course! Mindfulness is a natural process, so everyone is capable of doing it. All you need is about 10-15 minutes a day to retrain your body! As we get older, the stress and anxiety of life makes mindfulness more difficult. You must learn to overcome it! Here’s how you can practice being mindful: Meditate Put on some meditation music, get comfortable, close your eyes, and allow your mind to focus. Feel your breath and bring attention to the physical ways your body reacts to breathing. Next, notice what your legs and arms are doing. Make sure they are relaxed and in a natural state. Make Time to Be Mindful Take a few moments out of your day to be aware of your mindfulness. This is different from meditation because you can do it anywhere and you are not aiming to calm the mind. For 15 minutes out of your day, step away from what you are doing to really notice what is going on around you. Observe the present moment. And that’s it! Mindfulness is a simple practice that just requires daily attention in order for it to become a habit. Start today and then watch your mind become healthier and yourself become happier!
