Gisele Bündchen has graced the cover of over a thousand magazines (truly). But you've never seen the supermodel quite like this.
If you've used conventional beauty products your entire life, making the switch to natural makeup is no doubt going to be a confusing journey. And chances are, you probably aren't as familiar with the brand names, and even formulas, as you are with the big brands you see in every drugstore aisle. That means a lot of trial and error, which could also mean a lot of $$$. As if changing up your foundation wasn't scary enough... So to save you the cash and frustration of buying lipstick tube after lipstick tube, we checked in with Credo Beauty, a brand that specializes in green beauty, to get the scoop on their top-selling natural makeup products. Here's a few to know about now, according to the VP of Merchandising and Planning at Credo Beauty, Annie Jackson.
Between shopping for gifts, post-election blues, and mentally preparing to clash with our relatives at Thanksgiving, we've unofficially dubbed these few weeks between now and the holidays to be headache season. It seems like we've been walking around with a dull pain in the backs of our heads for the better part of the month, and although popping an Advil or three tends to be the go-to remedy, we can't imagine it's a particularly good practice when it happens multiple times in a day. Luckily, a
With a Kickstarter campaign that fundraised well over The Brown Crayon Project's $25,000 goal in just weeks earlier this year, there's no question that mothers across the country instantly recognized the genius of a certified-organic line of skin and hair products created especially for their babies and toddlers of color. We sat down with The Brown Crayon Project founder Selma Idris to talk about the motivation behind her innovative brand, digital media's influence on the products, and which
Adele and Matt Allen, from Brighton, have dubbed themselves ‘off-grid’ parents due to their beliefs that children don’t need vaccinations, doctors or official schooling. The couple appeared with their children Ulysses, five and Ostara, one, to discuss everything from their decision to keep their children out of mainstream schools to Adele’s choice to continue breastfeeding their five-year-old.
“The best approach when shopping is to look for a sunscreen that’s mineral-based in zinc-oxide (which contains zero nanoparticles) or a sunscreen that uses natural antioxidant ingredients like pomegranate, elderberry, astaxanthin or vitamin C,” she suggests. “Use the same degree of judgement you’d use when selecting a lotion, avoiding the ’dirty dozen’ cosmetic chemicals like parabens and parfum.” ALSO SEE: 10 sunscreen myths debunked But what if I’ve been using the same generic sunscreen for years? Ouimet warns that conventional sunscreens often contain chemicals that are questionable in their safety.
I love that each year brings a fresh take on beauty. New products, new colors, new techniques — the beauty world is always changing. After years of heavy, contoured makeup, I think we are ready for a big shift. Here’s what I see happening in beauty for 2016.
While it’s true that bee populations, including those of honeybees, are being systematically diminished by almost 50 percent by climate change, human invasion, and, yes, even stress (according to New York Magazine), beauty products made out of beeswax, honey, and Royal Jelly aren’t culpable for the seemingly imminent extinction. Good news for bees — and those who love honey. As a matter of fact, many beauty brands cull their bee ingredients from sustainable beekeepers, using eco-friendly and non-invasive techniques. “The proportion of wax and honey used in cosmetics is a very small amount,” Norman Carreck, Science Director of the International Bee Research Association, tells Yahoo Beauty. “I don’t think use in the cosmetics industry is significant in bee decline. Beeswax is a much more sustainable product than paraffin wax, made from petroleum, and honey is a much more sustainable product than sugar, made from sugar beet.”Through cross-pollination, the honeybee contributes to many industries that have contributions in the beauty industry. For example, in the January 8, 2010 issue of Science, Carreck notes, “The California almond industry alone is worth $2 billion annually and relies on over 1 million honey bee hives for cross-pollination.” In the United States alone, the number of hives has decreased from six million after the Second World War to only 2.4 million nowadays.While Gwyneth Paltrow gets her fair share of criticism for extolling expensive jars of manuka honey as a healing production, the beauty benefits of honeybee production is well documented. “There is actually some good data showing anti-inflammatory and antibacterial effects of manuka honey, especially in wound healing,” says New York City based dermatologist Sejal Shah, MD. “There is less data for Royal Jelly but I have read a few animal studies — a few years ago — suggesting it has anti-aging properties.” Dermatologist Frédéric Bonté, MD, the head of research for LVMH also tells Yahoo Beauty that because honey is extremely rich in sugar, it’s an incredible fuel source for cells. “It has been proven that the fibroblasts, the dermal cells which provide flexibility and elasticity to the skin, are very fond of fructose energy power that allows a cellular and sustainable growth. Its healing power comes from this complex mixture of sugar and its organic compounds,” he explains.Additionally, the pearly white amino acid-rich royal jelly, secreted by the hypopharyngeal and mandibular glands of the worker bees from 5 to 15 days, is used to feed only the future queen bee and allow her to grow to full adult size, allowing her to have the fertility and longevity to give birth to 45,000 bees and live up to five years. “The list of these nutritional, energetic, and metabolic benefits is endless. But again, the source of the royal jelly is linked to its activity,” Bonté explains. As long as you’re careful about your bee product consumption, there’s no reason not to reap the benefits of these ingredients. Here are some of our favorite bee products, from lip balm to skin serum to eye shadow.Related:The New Buzz Around PropolisBurt’s Bees Co-Founder Burt Shavitz Dies at 80YB Loves: A Classic Lip Balm Just Got Even Better
