Seven Face Cleansing Tips for Healthier Skin

A clean face leads to healthy-looking skin.

You know my mantra—cleanse, cleanse, cleanse! Achieving beautiful and clear skin can sometimes be as simple as having a clean face.

Having a clean face is vital for clear skin, and I cannot stress the importance of cleansing enough. Here are seven tips for a clean face that will help put you on the path to clear skin in no time. We don’t just need to wash away the surface grime—we also need to slough dead skin cells!

How to cleanse your way to healthy-looking skin

    Cleanse your skin twice a day: every morning and every night before bed, no matter what. Just because your skin looks clean, that doesn’t mean it is. Chances are it’s covered with invisible impurities that can harm the skin. Get rid of them.
    Avoid ordinary bar soaps and stick with facial cleansers that are gentle and designed for your skin type.
    Never dry your skin with the family hand towel! If it’s not clean, you could be transferring bacteria onto your fresh, clean face. Try a quick sniff test. If your towel doesn’t smell like it’s fresh from the laundry, then you might want to ditch it and grab a clean one.
    Only rinse with warm water, never with water that is too hot or too cold. Extremes in temperature may irritate your skin and cause damage.
    Exfoliate at least once a week. Gentle exfoliation buffs away dead cells on your face, resulting in smoother, brighter skin. Just like you would for a cleanser, make sure to find a scrub that’s suitable for your skin type.
    Invest in a facial once in a while. Just like you would go to a dentist for a teeth cleaning, your skin needs a deep cleansing, too! Frequency of facials depends on skin type. Work with your aesthetician to determine how often a deep cleaning is needed.
    Be gentle when cleansing around your eyes. The skin around your eyes is the thinnest skin on your body. Handle with extra care.

Do you already do all of these things? Good for you! We’re all busy and sometimes it’s the simple things that start to slip, but a clean face and clear skin will help give you confidence.

Tips to Help You Get Your Beauty Sleep

6 Tips to Help You Get Your Beauty SleepSleep “N” Beauty! Do you skimp on sleep? We all know how important good nutrition and a healthy, active lifestyle are for our health and our appearance. But do you know how crucial a good night’s sleep is?

They call it “Beauty Sleep” for a reason and, for me, that phrase is a guilt free excuse to sleep in and catch as many Zzzzz’s as possible. But sometimes it just isn’t that easy.

Related Article: Apply night cream and wake up looking your best

Getting a good night’s sleep, no matter how tired we are, can be difficult. We have so many things to do, and so much on our minds, that sometimes it’s hard to shut it all down and get some quality sleep. The fact is that without sleep we tend to look tired, run down and I hate to say it… OLDER!

The Buzz on Beauty Sleep

Here are a few quick tips to help you unwind and drift off into dream land for a good 8 hours of beauty rest.

 – Exercise

Samantha will be the first to tell you that exercise will help keep stress hormones from interfering with our sleep. Even if you only have 20 minutes to take a brisk walk, do it! It will definitely help you sleep better at night.

 – Don’t eat too late in the day

Try not to over-indulge just before bedtime. Large meals late in the day lead to an active digestive system that can definitely disrupt your sleep. And avoid caffeine. Coffee, non-herbal teas, some soda, chocolate; all can contain caffeine – a stimulant that can definitely keep us awake much longer then we would like. Try to avoid caffeine at least 4 hours before bedtime. Instead opt for a nice chamomile tea which is perfect for bedtime.

 – Use your bed for sleep

Time to turn off the TV, put down the electronic games and close that laptop. Our beds are for sleeping not for working. If we use our bed for sleep and not as a substitute couch, we will definitely reduce the risk of developing sleep disorders.

 – A cozy bedroom is key

My bedroom is my favorite room in the house. It’s comfy, it’s cozy, and it’s calm. The three main things we all need for a night of pure beauty sleep. Be sure your bedroom lighting doesn’t resemble interrogation lighting by keeping it soft.Do what you can to eliminate excess noise and keep the temperature at around 68F or 20C if you can. A bedroom that is too hot or too cold will result in a lot of tossing and turning during the night.

 – Develop a beauty ritual

Consistency is key when it comes to a good night’s sleep. If possible, try to go to bed around the same time every night and wake up at the same time every morning. Take a relaxing bath; listen to some music, read your favorite magazine. Choose stress-free activities that will encourage relaxation. Scary movies at bedtime … not a good thing.

 – Get it all out

One thing that helps me out tremendously is writing things down. Sounds silly but if I can make a to-do list, vent my frustrations or simply journal about my day, I can definitely sleep better at night. Take the thoughts from the brain to a notebook and you don’t lie awake thinking about all of the things you forgot to do or wish you had done. Clear the head to make way for some sweet dreams.

4 beauty tips that require (almost) no effort

From Herbalife's Discover Good Fitness & Nutrition Blog

Simple beauty tips with a big impact | Jacquie Carter | Herbalife beauty adviceDo you want to look and feel just a little bit better today than yesterday but with minimal effort? We don’t have to go to extreme measures to achieve beauty; sometimes it’s the little things that make the biggest impact.

Here are a few simple at-home beauty tips I’ve come to love over the years that have definitely proved positive. 

Simple beauty tips with a big impact

Easy beauty tip: make nighttime skincare easily accessible

Don’t go to bed alone! Regardless of whether you’re male or female, you should always clean your face each evening. So, for those late nights when you just can’t muster up the energy to make it to the bathroom, reach towards your nightstand. Try keeping cleansing cloths, night cream and lip balm right next to your bed.

No matter how tired or, let’s face it – LAZY we are, we won’t fall asleep with a dirty face when our favorite products are within arm’s reach. Remember, doing SOMETHING is better than doing NOTHING. No one wants to wake up to dull skin and clogged pores.

Easy beauty tip: a steamy shower can be our best friend

Humidity, while not always great for our hair, is a good thing for our skin. Moisturizers are attracted to our skin most when it’s still damp from bathing. Combined with the humidity generated from a steamy shower, this is the best time to apply lotions for long lasting hydration. But you need to get started the minute you step out of the shower and before you open the bathroom door! If you wait too long to apply your moisturizer, the water will evaporate from your skin leaving it less receptive to hydration.

My advice? Pat your skin dry instead of rubbing your skin to dry off, then leave it a bit damp and lotion up. Nothing looks more touchable then soft, silky, hydrated skin.

Easy beauty tip: get glamorous with some nice sheets or, at least, a nice pillowcase

Tired of waking up with sheet imprints on your face? I know I was! By simply changing to softer sheets, the problem will be gone! Silk or satin sheets won’t leave imprints on your skin. And, if you tend to sleep in the same position night after night, those skin creases just might start to become permanent. By changing to higher quality sheets, you can help prevent these imprints and fine lines.

Satin sheets and pillowcases are also great for our hair. Cotton pillowcases have a rougher surface and the friction caused by tossing and turning during the night can lead to unnecessary hair tangles and even breakage. By switching to satin, your hair will hold its style and will be much more manageable when you wake up in the morning.

And, the best part about switching to satin? You always wake up feeling sexy! Who doesn’t love the feel of silky satin against their skin? In the name of youthful looking skin and hair – go with satin!

Easy beauty tip: the one beauty tool all ladies need

There’s something that I just can’t live without and it’s my eyelash curler! I have yet to master the art of applying false eyelashes, so an eyelash curler is the next best thing. It takes just a few seconds each morning and it’s an inexpensive way to make a huge impact on our appearance. With just a little curl, your eyes instantly look bigger, brighter and more awake. It’s the simplest beauty trick for a big impact. (Men, I’m not saying you shouldn’t try this one but… you might find my other three beauty tips suit you a little more!)


These are just a few of my simple beauty tips with a big beauty impact. Will you have time to try them this week? Let me know which one works best for you.

And, I really want to hear your beauty tips too – what little beauty secrets do you have to share with me?

How to take care of your skin while traveling

From Herbalife's Discover Good Fitness & Nutrition Blog

How to take care of your skin while traveling | Beauty advice from HerbalifeTraveling, especially on an airplane, will certainly take a toll on your skin. With just a few simple steps, you can arrive at your final destination with a complexion that looks fabulous and refreshed.

I am so fortunate that I have a job that allows me to travel around the world. I get to spend a lot of time on airplanes and I love it. But, there is a downside, and for those of you who travel, you know EXACTLY what I’m talking about… when we fly our skin goes awry!

Have you ever boarded an airplane looking fabulous and landed looking like you’ve aged 10 years? Well, you’re not alone. Airplane cabins have extremely low humidity that can cause our skin to become dehydrated quickly. The re-circulated dry air in the cabin is on a search for moisture and that search usually ends with our skin being sucked dry. Not only will dry skin become drier but oily skin can become even oilier. Seems crazy, but it’s true. When skin loses its water, it tends to produce more oil to compensate for the loss. So what can we do to look after our skin? Read on to learn my few simple skincare tips for air travel.

B.Y.O.B.B. – Bring Your Own Beauty Bag

First of all, have a thorough understanding of just what you can and cannot bring with you on your flight. Pack a small clear zip-lock bag with all of your travel essentials including a hydrating cleanser, moisturizer, lip balm, hand sanitizer and hand cream. The maximum size, based on FTA guidelines is 3.4 ounces (100ml) per product. It is critical for your skin to have your favorite products on hand to apply throughout the flight. So remember to plan ahead.

Time to strip down

Ladies, do I dare say it? To help our skin, we need to avoid wearing makeup while on an airplane. If you absolutely cannot go bare faced, it’s time to make some compromises. Make sure to avoid any foundation or powders as they definitely contribute to the drying of the skin. But, I see no harm in a bit of mascara and a swipe of lip gloss. When I have to board a flight with a full face on, I always give my skin a quick cleansing in the powder room with a moisturizing cleanser or make-up removing wipes and then slip quietly back into my seat…sometimes wearing sunglasses so as not to frighten the other passengers!

Apply, apply and reapply to hydrate and protect your skin

Make sure to have your moisturizer conveniently on hand throughout the flight. This means your products must stay with you and never make it into the overhead bin. The longer the flight the more frequently you should moisturize – your skin will thank you.

Don’t forget sunscreen

Seems crazy that we would need to be concerned about the sun’s rays while sitting on an airplane but think about it—it’s when we are flying that we are the closest to the sun. And, unfortunately, the windows on a plane aren’t capable of filtering out the damaging UV rays. So wear your moisturizer with SPF, shut the shade and choose an aisle seat over a window seat if you can.

Stay hydrated and drink!

And I don’t mean alcohol! It’s easy to fend off the fear of turbulence with a glass of wine or two, but it’s water that is key in keeping our bodies hydrated while flying. Avoid further dehydration by skipping the alcohol and drinking lots of water. Susan Bowerman has told me to aim for a glass of water for each hour I’m in the air.


Join the mile high skincare club!

When you reach your final destination, be sure to give your skin a good cleansing with a gentle facial cleanser or scrub. This will help remove the ugly, dry skin cells and excess oils that may have appeared during the flight.  To really get your skin back in tiptop shape, moisturize from head to toe when you get to your hotel room or home.

Be sure to follow these easy skin care tips while traveling. Your skin will look hydrated and refreshed, and no one will ever know by looking at you that you, and your skin, have been on a very long journey.

Bad Hair Days: Banish Them Forever

Clean hair is manageable hair.

You don’t need a bad hair day in your life, so let’s make them a thing of the past.

We all love those days when our hair is soft, , shiny and manageable. When our hair decides it’s not going to cooperate and takes on a mind of its own, things can go from good to bad, and bad to worse quickly. A bad hair day can seriously zap our self-esteem and make us want to go into hiding. I have on several occasions wanted to call in sick to work because of my unruly hair! Now, of course, I’ve never done that, wink-wink, but the thought has crossed my mind. Here are some things we can do to help our hair look its best so we can resist the urge to hide when a bad hair day strikes.

RELATED ARTICLE: Nutrition for Healthy Hair

Stop the Hair Abuse

I confess that I abuse the heck out of my hair. I know it’s not good, but sometimes it’s the fastest way to get my hair under control. Even though I turn to heat styling and pile on products, I know that long term, I’m doing more harm than good. This is one of those times when I need you to listen to what I say, not follow what I do. And, hair abuse is not gender biased. I know some guys out there who spend way more time fussing with their hair than some of us ladies. The bottom line is, in order to have more good hair days, we must be kind to our hair.

Stopping the abuse is our first priority. Put down those super-hot hair dryers, curling tongs and flat irons, and give your hair a break. Excess heat is damaging, as it depletes moisture from our hair and scalp and, over time, can strip away our natural protective oils. The result? Hair that’s dry, frazzled and prone to breaking.

Give your hair a break from the heat. If possible, attempt to air dry at least once a week to give your hair a break from damaging styling tools. When you do use heat styling tools, use the lower settings on your styling devices and try a heat protection spray to create a barrier between your hair and the heat to help prevent damage. The sooner you stop the abuse, the healthier your hair will start to look.

Make Time for Hair Care

Some days are so hectic that your hair just doesn’t have a chance. And most bad hair days are really your own fault. You may be better off skipping your morning shampoo if you don’t have the time to do it right.

There are a few simple rules to proper shampooing:
  • Scrub your scalp to remove excess oils and product buildup.
  • Remove all traces of shampoo and conditioner when you rinse. Most shampoos and conditioners need plenty of water in order to be effective and remove dirt and residue, and to release their conditioning ingredients. Hair that hasn’t been rinsed thoroughly can be limp, oily and unmanageable.
  • Just when you think you’re done rinsing, rinse some more. And to help seal the hair’s cuticle and give you more shine, rinse with cool or lukewarm water, never hot.
    Beware of Product Overload

So, you just put in the extra time and effort to be sure you rinsed all of the shampoo and conditioner out of your hair. Then what do you do? If you’re like me, you start piling on the styling agents—protection spray, hair serum, styling gels, mousse, hair sprays and shining agents. It never ends.
Truth is, the more products you pile on, the greater your chances are of having a really bad hair day. Hair products can weigh your hair down and make it look dull and lifeless. Lighten up on the products and let your hair breathe.

Quick Tips to Make Every Day a “Good Hair Day”
    1) Look for powerful moisturizing and conditioning ingredients when you choose your shampoo and conditioner.
    2) Go sulfate free! Sulfates are harsh, drying and can strip the color from your hair.
    3) Just when you think you’re done rinsing your hair, keep rinsing and count to ten.
    4) Your hair is weakest when it is wet, so be gentle when combing wet hair and avoid putting it into a ponytail or braid until it is thoroughly dry. This will help prevent damage.
    5) Consider investing in a good hairdryer with ionic technology. It may help your hair dry faster and with less damage. Remember, the louder your blow dryer is, the lower the quality may be.
    6) Ease up on the products to avoid buildup which could cause lifeless, unmanageable, oily hair.
    Let’s face it—the only thing worse than a bad day is a bad hair day. If you follow these quick and simple tips, you can banish the bad hair days forever. Healthy hair is happy hair!

Try These DIY Tips for a Confidence Boost

Out with the old, in with the new.

Let’s talk about how to build all-over body confidence. I’m excited to be sharing my personal experience with self-esteem and body image, how they go hand in hand, and what we need to do to stay confident

Most people battle with low self-esteem and body confidence at some point in life. Perhaps you wish your skin was clearer, or that your stomach was flatter, or your nose was smaller, or maybe you wish you were taller or shorter. These feelings apply to both men and women.

The Self-Image Puzzle

There are mornings when I stand in front of a mirror looking at myself. I check out my arms, my stomach
and even my butt, and if I’m already feeling low, I can start to feel worse. I decide I want to look like I did
when I was 22 years old. I start to get down on myself, and I can literally feel my confidence slipping away.

After a full body bashing, I continue to torture myself by scrutinizing my face in one of those magnifying mirrors. Then I think, “Oh great, there’s a new little wrinkle developing. Oh wonderful, a stray hair randomly growing some place it shouldn’t be.” Sigh… If it weren’t for the fear of seven years of bad luck, that mirror would be history.

The Self-Confidence Solution

In my mind, I’m still in my early 20s. But my mind and my body are definitely not on the same page. Often, our body image is directly tied to our self-esteem. And there’s no reason why we shouldn’t have all-over body confidence no matter what we look like. It’s important to embrace who we are today and let go of the past. Let go of the standardized perceptions of beauty, and find confidence from within. And the best part is, if there’s something we are unhappy about––we have the power to change it.

What bothers us the most is what no one notices about us

When we do work on ourselves and we see change, our confidence starts to build. Little things can make a huge impact. For me, it was cleaning out my closet. I used to hold onto clothes forever. Every time I’d walk in my closet I would see a certain pair of ripped jeans, circa 1985. And my mind would say, “Remember when you were a skinny young thing and rocked those jeans?” That one single thought would zap my self-confidence and I would start to feel bad about myself. The solution? Get rid of the jeans. I know it’s simple, but for me not holding on to the past is important. No one needs a daily reminder of something that might make them feel bad for no reason. Everyone has different concerns, but we all have the power to improve how we view ourselves.

Here are few simple rules you can follow to create all-over body confidence and improve your self-esteem:

Self-Image and Self-Confidence Go Hand in Hand
Body confidence rule 1: Be realistic

It’s OK not to look like you did when you were 22. Think back to the good old days. Were you wearing fashions that belong in the past? Platform shoes, bell-bottoms or skinny ties? Perhaps it was big shoulder pads, acid-wash jeans or a crop top? Enough reminders of past fashion! Whatever the case, let’s admit it once and for all: we really do look better now than we did then. If you aren’t sure, show an old picture of yourself to someone who’s a decade younger than you. I showed my kids a picture of me rocking a once-trendy outfit and––love ‘em––they burst out laughing. Let’s romanticize the future, not the past.

Body confidence rule 2: Focus on the positive

You know that feeling you get when someone randomly tells you that they love your shoes, or they think your hair looks great? Or when someone asks, “Have you been working out?” Think about how you feel in those moments. We all have many positive attributes, but sometimes just one self-perceived negative overrules the many positives.

Let’s change our focus. Look in the mirror and what do you see? Focus on the good things. Do you have nice shiny hair, sparkly eyes, beautiful white teeth, toned abs or glowing skin? Compliment yourself on what you love about you each and every day. And own it.

Body confidence rule 3: Change is good

If you want to change something about yourself, do it sooner rather than later. If it’s your hair, try a new
cut. If you’re losing your hair and it’s making you insecure, get rid of it. I know it’s difficult, but Taye Diggs, Jason Statham, Dwayne Johnson and Pitbull are all bald and they exude self-confidence. And hey, even yours truly was bald for a few years. Gentlemen, trust me, bald can be very sexy.

Worried about your weight? Today is the day to make a change. Read one of Samantha’s or Susan’s
articles to help get you started. The sooner you get started on making a change, the sooner you’ll start feeling better about yourself.

Remember, beauty is found in the eye of the beholder, not on the pages of a fashion magazine. Throw your shoulders back, stand up tall, lift your chin up and smile. Love yourself, love your family and love your friends. Compliment yourself and others every day and be confident in who you are. Self-confidence exudes positivity.

A positive self-image equals self-confidence. Today is the day to make a change for the better.

Introducing Jacquie Carter, skin care and beauty expert

From Herbalife's Discover Good Fitness & Nutrition Blog

Herbalife beauty expert Jacquie Carter | DiscoverGoodBeauty.comHelp us welcome skin care and beauty expert, Jacquie Carter, our new ‘Discover Good…’ beauty author! 

Hi Jacquie, we’re absolutely thrilled you’ve joined ‘Discover Good…’ We know you have a wealth of experience in the beauty industry and that you want to help everyone look his or her best. What are the key messages you try to convey about skin care?

Jacquie CarterThanks for the welcome, I’m happy to be here! What I try to communicate to everyone is that taking care of your skin is something that we must do every single day – no excuses! This includes men, women and teens.  It’s as important as bathing and brushing your teeth.  A proper skin care routine only takes a few minutes a day, so there are no excuses.  Once you get started and you see results, you realize the importance of it and cleansing just becomes second nature.  The skin is the largest living organ of the body and has the potential to age faster than any other organ of the body.  We need to take care of it every single day. It’s a must!

You epitomize our ‘look good and feel great’ approach. Is helping people feel good your mission in life?

Jacquie Carter: That’s a very interesting question.  I am not really sure where to begin. When I was a teenager, I was diagnosed with cancer.  Through the years of my treatment I lost all of my hair, my weight was affected, my skin was awful looking and I even developed some very painful skin conditions that were difficult to treat and embarrassing to look at.  Battling the illness was my first priority but, let’s face it, I was a teenage girl and how I looked was important to me. It’s amazing how our appearance can give us great confidence or make us completely insecure.   I just wanted to hide from the world because I didn’t feel good about myself.  I was sick on the inside and I looked sick on the outside.  That feeling of not wanting to be seen because of your appearance is something that I will never forget.  It’s also something that many people feel on a daily basis.  It could be insecurities due to acne or weight or just not looking like the airbrushed models in the fashion magazines.  I do believe society has an unrealistic perspective of what true beauty is.  If I can help just one person feel good and not want to hide from the world, then it’s all been worth it.  Confidence can come to us in many forms.  I truly believe that knowledge is power.  Give someone the tools to change things and you will see a world of difference in their confidence.

Thanks for sharing your story Jacquie, we’re so glad that you fully recovered. It’s inspiring to see that you took a difficult situation and managed to find the positive! Nutritionists often quote the phrase: “Beauty comes from within.” Do you believe that nutrition can play an important role in how a person’s skin looks?

Jacquie Carter: Absolutely!  I believe proper nutrition is critical when it comes to our appearance.  I always say; if you eat a lot of garbage, chances are your skin will look like garbage.  A bit extreme, but there is some truth to it.  Our skin is a true reflection of what is going on inside of our bodies, so the healthier we are on the inside, the better we look on the outside. Good nutrition and a healthy, active lifestyle are important for both inner and outer nutrition.

With your beauty credentials, do you feel you’re ‘high maintenance’?

Jacquie Carter: Oh my gosh; noooo!  I am so not high maintenance but then I suppose everyone who truly is high maintenance says the same thing, right?  I am happiest with just a splash of makeup, my hair in a ponytail and wearing a pair of jeans.  That’s when I am most comfortable.  But with that said, I wouldn’t leave the house looking like that.  Does that make me high maintenance after all?  I’d better rethink this question…

We’re loving your no-holds-barred honesty! Are you a make-up minimalist or do you go bold every time?

Jacquie Carter, Herbalife beauty expert | Discover Good BeautyJacquie Carter: I love makeup.  I love wild colors and sparkles and I look forward to seasonal trends. I can’t wait to see what celebrities are wearing.  I saw someone on TV the other day with a bright, bumble bee yellow lipstick on.  I thought to myself; wow that is awesome, because I would never do something so daring. I am really boring when it comes to makeup, I rarely move out of my comfort zone.  I am definitely a make up minimalist in reality but bold in my fantasy life.

Is there anything beauty related that you wish you’d known sooner?

Jacquie Carter: Geez, where do I start?  Looking back, I think I made every possible mistake I could make. 

The college years especially were not my proudest moments.  I had a terrible diet: I would eat potato chips, soda, fast food and honestly – NOT in moderation.   I would eat late-night greasy pizzas and yes, I consumed my share of alcohol at our sorority parties.   I never used sunscreens and, in fact, would lie in the sun with tanning oil on my skin just to get a deep dark tan. I actually looked forward to my first summer sunburn because after that I believed I was on my way to a gorgeous tan. I washed my face with plain old soap and water.  And, if I had a blemish I would definitely pick at it.  Wow, I was really a mess!   As the saying goes, “If I only knew then what I know now.”  

I love educating teens on skin care because when they truly realize the effects that bad habits have on their skin in the long term, I believe they are more apt to make intelligent choices.  In my defense, and I hate to date myself, but when I was younger there wasn’t an emphasis on sunscreens or diet and lifestyle when it came to our skin.  But, now we know and we need to take every precautionary measure we can to protect the health of our skin and our bodies as a whole.  I will confess I still have ‘evidence’ on my skin from those days.

What is your major skin care no-no?

Jacquie Carter: I would have to say that the biggest no-no is not using skin care products! It’s as simple as that.  We need to cleanse our skin to remove impurities, moisturize and nourish our skin, and protect our skin from the elements and the sun.  Not doing so is a major skin care no-no in my book.

Any men reading this might feel a bit left out – is that the case?

Jacquie Carter: Oh, I hope not.  Skin care, hair care, and body care – is not just for women, it’s important for everybody.  In fact, in some cases skin care can be even more important for men than women.  Many men shave on a regular basis and every time that razor scrapes across their face they strip the natural oils from their skin.  On top of that, many men will then apply after-shave lotion, which can be loaded with alcohol.  Alcohol burns and irritates the skin leading to even further dehydration.  The result?  Most men need to moisturize their skin more than women do!  See gentlemen, I don’t want you to feel left out at all!  This is just one example but there are so many more. 

I want men to know as much as women about skin care and hair care so they too will always look and feel their best. knowing that you’re looking good plays a part in making us feel great.

Thanks Jacquie, you’ve inspired all of us today!  We’re looking forward to reading your weekly articles and learning more about how to look good inside and out!
