The Quickest Way To Boost a Girl’s Self-Esteem

How to Build Self-Esteem

Easy Tips on How to Build Self-Esteem of Girls

Guess what only 2% of women think they are beautiful.

Let that sink in. Let that fill your brain, lay heavy on the heart. Let that number roll around on your tongue before you spit it out in horror.

That is why this fall, I partner with both Kroger and Dove to talk about their self-esteem project and the resources they have made available to combat all the negative message. I love Dove products. I love saving money on their products at Kroger because they make me feel good about being in my skin while making me look good on the outside.

It isn’t hard to believe that only 2% of us think we are beautiful. Then if you think about it, it isn’t that difficult because we have been told from all directions we aren’t. We have magazines staring back at us with airbrushed images of people who do not look like us with slogans that say “best, greatest, beautiful.” We have people in our lives telling us what to wear, how to speak, and what is expected but we have very few people in our corner that say, “I love you just the way you are.”Continue reading

Homemade Body Scrubs You’ll Love

Get 15% OFF ALL PRI products… Plus FREE SHIPPING on www.ShopPRI.com with code Beauty15

There was a time when my feet walked through sand whose grains were as fine as silk. There was a time I wore heels that were tall, delicate, and the envy of all. There were times when I would sneak into the spa and enjoy body scrubs from head to toe. There were times when I could read a book without pictures. That was before all this happened.

It started 14 years ago, the decline of my me time. It began in a Chinese restaurant of all places. I had just had a cup of tea saying a spot of tea in a Chinese restaurant doesn’t sound correct. I had just ordered, and then I had to go to the ladies room. I excused myself. I began to cry. I am not sure why I was crying. The tea had appeared and my day was going well. I was having lunch with the love of my life, my husband but I couldn’t stop crying. I knew then and there what was wrong but I needed to see for sure.

I rushed to the store, and I grabbed the test. I took the test and just like I did in school. I passed with flying colors or in this case a red line. We were having a baby. I can’t describe how happy I was, but I can tell you it was better news than thinking I lost my mind. I mean who cries over tea at a Chinese restaurant. That was the day my life changed. I began to live for my child. I gave up the fancy things in life so he could have a perfect life but I never gave up my desire to be pampered. I just had to make it fit in my budget.

That is how I came to make body scrubs. These are some Homemade Body Scrubs You’ll Love!

Pamper yourself by having a spa in your home. Check out these homemade body scrub recipes you'll love.

10 Step Korean Skin Care Routine

Cleanse, tone and moisturize that’s the skincare routine that most of us grew up to and that’s what I did until two years ago.  When it comes to skin care, I can say that I’ve always been diligent. As early as 14 years old, my mom got me my first skin care kit with facial cleanser, toner, moisturizer, and sunscreen. She nagged me every day to use them, or else I will regret it when I get older when dark spots and wrinkles start to appear, and of course, I was scared so even though moisturizer at that time felt oily I still followed her instructions.

10 Step Korean Skin Care Routine is a great way to totally revamp your beauty routine! Look no further than our own resident skin care expert!

I believed her because growing up I saw my mom lather cold cream on her face every night and until now she has the softest skin I’ve ever seen. Unfortunately for me, I did not get that soft skin gene, but I can say that her nagging for me to do my daily skin care seemed to work well because I grew up without any major skin issues. But then two years ago something changed, my skin just can’t take any skincare product. Any product even facial wash makes my skin super red and itchy, I thought I was just allergic to the product I used, so I went to buy other brands that are hypoallergenic and even tried baby products, but still my skin still got itchy and red, and worst I even had skin asthma. I was so frustrated at that time; then my dermatologist told me to try Korean skin care, and I’ve been hooked ever since.
