Adventure-seekers, "adrenaline junkies" - these are people we all know in our lives who can be really hard to buy for when you are shopping for a gift. They experience true joy when they are zip lining, white water rafting or zooming down a steep hill on a roller coaster.

We are here to share some gift ideas for people who love the feeling of exhilaration. We think you'll enjoy giving these gifts just as much as your gift recipient will enjoy opening them.

Wine rack gifts for exhilaration seed body care

 I love this one -- after a long day of hitting the slopes, that skier in your life can enjoy a nice glass of wine from one of the bottles on this neat ski wine rack, which was made by hand in Massachusetts by artisan Michael Bellino.

Give the gift of adventure in the backyard

My husband and younger son would love this one -- an at-home zip line. How cool is that? I found this one at Cabela's.

Is alcohol bad for your skin?
Is alcohol bad for your skin?

Skin care products with alcohol will cause dryness, right? Not necessarily.

There is confusion surrounding different types of alcohol. I think that when we think of alcohol, many of us picture a bottle of drugstore rubbing alcohol. It is very drying. There are several different types of alcohol that are used in formulating skin care products. Some of these are drying, while others are emollient. The difference lies in the molecular size of the alcohol molecule as well as the amount.

In chemistry terms, alcohol really just means that a molecule has an -OH (or hydroxyl group).  This hydroxyl group is attached to a carbon. There can be any number of carbon atoms in this molecule. Short chain alcohols have from 1-3 carbons while long chain alcohols are considered those with more than 8 carbons.

Fall Lip Care Tips and Tricks
Fall Lip Care Tips and Tricks

October 09, 2018

Smooth lips are key for matte lipstick and lip stain application.

 

Red, bold berries, and purples can be unforgiving, especially when you have dry lips. Lips need to be primed and prepped before you apply lip color.

Picture the exterior of a house with paint that has chipped and peeled. If you hired a painter, would he just take out the paint and roll right over the shingles? No. The paint would not go on evenly and it would be bumpy and peel even more. The painter would scrape away the old paint, smooth the wood, make sure it is cleaned properly and prepped for painting. The canvas needs to be smooth for the paint to adhere and look its best. The same goes for your lips. If your lips are chapped or flaky and you apply lipstick, every imperfection show. The color will not properly adhere and your lips will not look good. You need to prepare the lip surface first.

The Important Difference Between Unscented and Fragrance Free
The Important Difference Between Unscented and Fragrance Free

October 01, 2018 1 Comment

Fragrance free is what you are looking for.

This means that no fragrances (artificial or otherwise) have been added to the product (or should mean that, watch for tougher regulations monitoring that coming).  As we know, artificial fragrances are the #1 irritant on skin and one of the most potentially harmful ingredients we can encounter - because they contain phthalates -- see more information below.

They are linked to many health issues, from allergies and asthma to cancer. Simply put, these fragrances are making people sick. In its truest definition, "fragrance free," means you should not have to worry about those nasty synthetics. Nothing should be added to remove the natural scents from the butters, oils, and other natural ingredients in the products.  In other words, you may smell some of the product’s ingredients such as the olive oil or shea butter.

Did you know?

Honestly, it can be confusing. Many people assume that unscented and fragrance free are interchangeable terms. This is wrong, however.
