Pomegranates

Supply your body with antioxidants to keep a healthy complexion.  Polyphenols in pomegranates fight free radicals and regulate skin’s blood flow, giving it rosiness, smooth lines & keep it moisturized. Plus, they are delicious!

Yogurt

greekyogurt

A great breakfast food or snack, Yogurt contains protein that helps skin become firmer. This makes it more resistant to lines and wrinkles. Greek Yogurt is best because it often contains double the protein of regular yogurt, so this is why you always hear it as the premier yogurt option. Mix in some fruits to make it extra tasty!

 

Walnuts

Walnuts contain omega-3 essential fatty acids, which can improve skin’s elasticity. They are also packed with copper, a mineral that boosts collagen production. Keep the texture of your skin on point by gobbling on some of these during the week!

Water

Water! The most underrated substance on the planet. Drink more water, point blank. After all, it does make up over 60% of our bodies. Water keeps your skin hydrated and staying hydrated makes it appear plumper and less wrinkled. Drinking more water also means drinking less sugar, which is a huge plus!

 

 

Kidney Beans

High in zinc, Kidney beans are known to ward off blemishes. Having about a 4 oz serving will give your body its benefits. Keep your skin healthy and slow down the aging process with these powerful beans!

 

Dark Chocolate

Ghiradelli Dark Chocolate

That’s what I like to hear! Women who consume a high flavanol cocoa powder substance are known to experience less skin roughness and scaliness. Dark chocolate being good for the skin is a win for everyone.

 

 

What Are Stem Cells? A Simple, Easy Explanation

You have heard the term “stem cell” many times, but how many of you really know what they are? They are entering discussions everywhere and for good reason. This is a simple, easy explanation on these incredible cells.

What is a stem cell?

Stem cells have the amazing potential to develop into many different types of cells in the body. In many tissues they serve as an internal repair system. They can divide essentially without limit to replenish other cells.

Why They Belong In Your Beauty Products

When you use skin care products, your goal is to heal and maintain healthy skin. When it comes to your body’s natural remedy for healing, stem cells are king. Science has discovered this, which is why you will find that most scientists say that stem cells are the future. If you want cosmetics that heal and maintain the skin, stem cell beauty is the answer. Anything else is outdated and will clearly not provide the same results.

I hope this explanation helped you further explain why stem cells are frequently talked about and why they make sense in beauty. There are plenty of wordy, complicated explanations on the web. This one was meant for everyday, normal people who want to get educated on the topic of stem cells and their place in beauty. Share this article with a friend if you enjoyed!

Style, fashion and beauty have no boundaries. Each year classic trends make a comeback, and new, daring looks enter the beauty world. Looking beautiful will always be attainable in many different ways: There is always a lane for you whether you’re going for revealing, classy, professional or sexy. Real beauty is about being confident and feeling beautiful. Don’t feel the pressure to look a certain way if it’s not your style, just keep in mind that with the right attitude, you can feel comfortable while looking stunning. After researching many fashion websites, shows and companies; here is the list of what 2015 might have in store for beauty and fashion.

Windblown Braids

When a Michael Kors model come out with windblown braids at New York Fashion Week this year, the beauty world couldn’t stop talking about it. It’s a very lovely look that looks very simple and natural. This is the perfect look for someone looking to stray away from the “I tried so hard to look like this” appearance, for a much subtler beautiful look.

Japanese-style Buns

In the 21st century we have witnessed a cultural revolution, where we now understand and appreciate the ways of others. It is no surprise that we are seeing Japanese-inspired buns as a prominent go-to hairstyle.

BARE-Face

Bare-Faced

As beauty and fashion get more daring every year, it also gets more traditional. The great thing about the 2014-2015 is that we are more diverse and accepting than ever. The no-makeup look is one that is not only gorgeous, but impressive. Bare down and look natural next year and feel confident in your own skin.

Red Lips

Gwyneth Paltrow once said “Beauty, to me, is about being comfortable in your own skin. That, or a kick-ass red lipstick.” That pretty much sums it up. Full, red lips never go out of style!

Ponytail

I love the recent trend of women bearing down and going for a more relaxed look. No need for all the over-complications. The ponytail is a sleek look that can range from conservative to sexy. It’s all how you rock it!

Stem Cell Beauty

The newest craze in the industry is stem cell beauty products and cosmetics. It makes more sense to take care of your skin, than to continuously dump pounds of make up on it! These products range from anti-aging skin serums to natural eyelash growth. Why keep using fake lash extensions and dumping pounds of make up on your face, when you could be treating your skin right and showing it off naturally! Science in today’s world is incredible, and stem cell beauty is the way to take advantage of it.

Miranda Kerr Sheds Clothes For Wonderbra In South Korea

Once Miranda Kerr’s contract was up with Victoria Secret, we had a feeling it was only a matter of time before a similar company scooped her up. This was definitely the case as Wonderbra was quick to sign her as the new face (and body) for their lingerie.

Miranda Kerr WonderBra

 

Kerr was seen posing in South Korea for the newest Wonderbra campaign. As usual, she lit up the event with her stunning face and attractive physique. She was greeted by a large amount of fans, some even bringing flowers for the starlet. This would not be the first time that she has worked with the bra & underwear company, she did some modeling for them in March of this year. The very friendly Miranda then signed autographs for her fans and had a smile while doing it. Most recently, she has been mentioned in the minor scuffles between ex-boyfriend Orlando Bloom and pop star Justin Bieber. It is not surprising that someone as attractive as Miranda Kerr has two of the biggest celebrities fighting over her. Anyone who has viewed her Wonderbra shoot or any of her work in the past will agree she is worth the conflict. See above and below for reference. Would you fight over her, or do you think their are more desirable celebs out there? Let us know!!

Alexis Wolfer “The Female Beauty MacGyver” – Interview + New Book

When it comes to beauty, fashion, fitness and wellness, you might not find more multidimensional threat than Alexis Wolfer. Since founding The Beauty Bean in 2010 (Forbes Magazine Top 10 Women’s Lifestyle Websites), she has been on NBC, CBS, ABC, FOX, Today Show, E!, The Doctors, Oprah.com and Teen Vogue just to name a few. With a new book in stores worldwide, it seems like this is just the beginning of Alexis’s amazing career. I was blessed to get a phone interview with Alexis recently, and it was truly a pleasure. From her vibrant personality to her down-to-earth, creative beauty techniques, this question & answer is a must read for any fans, supporters or beauty & fitness lovers.

AlexisWolfer

TheBeautyBean.com has been very successful. What led you to create TheBeautyBean.com?

 So TheBeautyBean.com really came from my desire for a Women’s media platform that would be positive and empowering instead of predicated on this idea of having to make women feel crappy about themselves in order to sell them things.  I just felt like women were above that and smarter than that. I have my Masters in Human Rights & Women’s Studies from Columbia and a background in Women’s lifestyle editorial.

In grad school when I wrote my graduation school thesis on women’s magazines and their influence on body image & eating disorders, which was something I have troubled with in my past and I just felt like there had to be a better way. My thesis kind of became the business model for the Beauty Bean and that was about 6 years ago now.

Explain how you got your nickname the Female Beauty MacGyver.

 I’ve always kind of headed to my kitchen or experimented with beauty remedies & recipes, particularly those using food. It’s what led me to write my first book “The Recipe for Radiance”. That was the nickname that Access Hollywood had actually given me when I was sharing some DIY beauty remedies with them and showing them how they could make beauty solutions all using food in their kitchen.

Your new book The Recipe for Radiance: Discover Beauty’s Best-Kept Secrets in Your Kitchen is available now worldwide. Why is it a must-read for anyone to improve their beauty routine?

 The Recipe for Radiance really gives women all of the tools they need in order to support their nature beauty inside and out. It’s half recipes that promote beauty from within, so food recipes that you’re going to cook in your kitchen and eat that support your beauty, and half recipes for topical homemade remedies all using food, so things like body scrubs, fface masks and hair masks.

Our skin is our body’s largest organ. Everything that we eat creates all of the cells that create our skin and our hair and our nails, and when you’re not eating well your beauty routine is going to suffer also. So I think a lot of women end up being on these diets thinking that when you lose weight that that’s going to be beautiful, when really that’s really counter to everything. When you’re crash dieting your skin is sallow, your hair might be falling out, but really eating in a way that supports your beauty is one of the best ways to really boost your radiance from the inside out.

Listen to the full answer here: 

What is one thing that you would love to tell your fans that they probably wouldn’t know by following you online?
Ooohh..Umm..probably I don’t really wear very much make up, and I have a pretty simple skincare routine. I think people think because I work in the beauty industry or that this is my life, that I’m extraordinarily high maintenance, *laughs* and it’s kind of the opposite of that which I always find interesting. I find it particularly interesting that a lot of the PD editors that I’m friendly with are also the same way, you know, put a lot of the focus on diet and skincare and being healthy, but a lot less of a focus on makeup and, you know, spending hours on doing your hair etc.. That’s not to say if you enjoy those things like by all means go for it, but, currently talking to you I’m wearing sweatpants and my hair is in a bun *laughs*, you know, I’m considerably  less high-maintenance then most of you probably think.

 What has been the most rewarding moment of your career so far?

 I’m torn between…The second year that The Beauty Bean was created we were named to Forbes Magazine’s Top 10 Lifestyle Websites for Women and that was a really powerful moment of realizing that not only were we getting fans, but also the industry was starting to take notice of what we were doing and that was really rewarding; And then when my book came out I went to the Barnes & Noble in New York and I was there for the launch. It was the first time I had seen the book on the shelf and that was really really rewarding.

Who are some of your favorite music artists at the moment?

 I’ve been really loving the new Dawes album; And then, I’ve recently been introduced to the War on Drugs and Volcano Choir, and they’ve quickly become part of my rotation. I have very different music that I listen to when I work out, usually like some sort of 80’s grunge or early 90’s grunge. But, when I’m working or writing I find that those artists are kind of my go-to’s right now.

 What are your goals for 2015 and beyond?

I’m currently writing a second book that’s gonna be called “The Radiant Bride” and that’s gonna come out in December of 2015. It’s a bridal beauty book that’s going to take women from engagement to honeymoon with their beauty diet and their fitness routine and picking the most flattering dress, and all those things that women want to feel and look their best on their wedding day. That’s really been my focus right now. I am also always looking to expand the beauty bean and continue to see other opportunities for me to connect with people and help them in whatever way I can help.

Make sure you support Alexis everywhere!

Beauty Blogger Spotlight! – Mallory Cornelison Interview

If you are a beauty fanatic and aren’t following any Youtube Vloggers yet, you are missing out.

Specifically, if you are unfamiliar with up-and-coming Youtube sensation Mallory Cornelison, let us change that now. Boasting 1,800,000+ views and 27,000+ subscribers on her increasingly popular Youtube Channel, “Mallory1712” is a force to be reckoned within the beauty industry.

pCEN1s_Z

 

Her extremely likeable demeanor is evident in every video she posts, and her style of video blogging hits home with the large audience she built from scratch. Fresh off major recognition from Allure Magazine as “First Runner Up” in the Beauty Blogger Awards, we caught up with Mallory to ask her some unique questions that her dedicated fanbase will surely enjoy.

Congrats on the First Runner Up Award in Allure Magazine’s Beauty Blogger Awards 2014. Besides this, what is your favorite accomplishment so far in your blogging/vlogging career?

My favorite accomplishment has to be the relationships I have formed with my viewers! I don’t feel that they are just a faceless audience, but a second family to me. That is why I am so enthusiastic to share all the products I am loving with them, because it feels like good ol’ girl talk.
 
Your blog is titled “Beauty and The Arthritis?” How come?
I haven’t been active on my blog for almost a year, but am hoping to pick it back up once I am settled after moving. It is titled “Beauty and The Arthritis” because I was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis and Behcet’s Disease almost six years ago, but I did not want it to define and stop me from achieving my dreams as a beauty blogger. Beauty blogging/vlogging is a great outlet for me to forget my symptoms, and focus on the beauty in life.  I was planning to expand my blog into a health and beauty platform, and still hope to in the near future.
 
Which music artists do you listen to the most?
The funny thing is, I just shared on my channel in the “TMI Tag” that I don’t really like music. I just don’t find that it is something I think about, or have to listen to. If I am listing to music, I am usually listening to Needtobreathe or some worship/gospel music. I love uplifting, and encouraging music about the Lord, and struggles in life, so that is why if I am going to listen to music, it is usually positive music with a message.
 
Which social media website is your favorite? Why?
My absolute favorite social media platform is Pinterest! Hands down! I love that it is a platform that I can escape in, but still share the things I love with others, and vice versa.
 
What’s your favorite thing about video blogging?
My absolute favorite thing is the interaction with my viewers! I love to have conversations about beauty products, and life in general with them. Like I said, they are like a second family, so it is a joy for me to converse back and forth with them about the things they love!
 
What is one thing that you would love to tell fans of your blog, that they probably wouldn’t know by following you online?
I think the one thing they wouldn’t know is that my handle mallory1712 actually has a meaning! Mallory is of course my name, but the numbers have a bit of a special meaning for me. 17 is my husband’s favorite number, and 12 is my favorite number, so I just combined them, and now am reminded of our simple yet great love every time I log in. We are high school sweethearts, and have been married for almost 7 years, and as cheesy as it is, we are pretty romantic hearted in the small things.
 
What is the best advice you could give upcoming beauty bloggers & vloggers?
The best advice I can give is BE YOURSELF, and stay true to who you are, no matter how much negativity comes with not conforming to what others expect you to be. I always say that if you aren’t yourself, everyone is missing out on your uniqueness. There is only one of you in this world, so be the best version of you, and not a hologram of someone else.
 
What are your goals for 2014, 2015 and beyond?
My ultimate goal is to just keep growing my extended “beauty family”, and enjoy each day as it comes. If it weren’t for them, I would not be what I am today. If everything stayed the same in the next 2 years and beyond, I would still be happy with where I am because I truly love what I do. I have such a passion for what I do, so the fact I get to share it with others just keeps fueling that passion.
