As the weather starts to turn colder, many of us face the problem of dry skin. But did you know it’s also a result of imbalances in your diet? Thanks to Kimberly Snyder, C.N. and her newest book, Radical Beauty (which she co-authored with Deepak Chopra!), we have some helpful advice to help keep your skin moisturized and glowing all season long – from the inside and out!
Radical Beauty: How to Transform Yourself from the Inside Out
- When it comes to your diet, make sure you aren’t totally avoiding fats! Include easily digested beauty fats such a avocados, coconut oil and chia seeds in your diet. Avocados are a rich source of nourishing beauty fats, vitamins and lecithin to nourish dry skin!
- Hydration is a MUST! Drink plenty of room temperature water to keep your body hydrated. Another option is eating lots of sweet, juicy fruits which help hydrate your skin from the inside. Externally, you should avoid very hot showers and limit the time you spend in hot baths as this can dry out your skin as well.
- For your skincare routine, add an extra boost of moisture. Try incorporating a face mask on a regular basis like the Radical Beauty Skin Texture Smoothing Mask (recipe and instructions below) to see your skin become smoother with diminished age spots! It contains coconut yogurt which is a great source of amino acids and probiotics, carrot is high in skin-brightening beta-carotene and antioxidants, lecithin to nourish dry skin, leaving it feeling soft and smooth and avocados.

Do you ever see a book that is intended for kids, but it is so awesome you just have to have it for yourself? I can answer that as “Yes, frequently” and that’s exactly what happened when I saw The Complete Book of Fashion History by Jana Sedlackova. It’s a stylish journey through history and the ultimate guide for being fashionable in every era – AND a lot of fun!
About the Book:
Travel through time and learn about the most popular fashion trends in history!
Explore world history and culture through the lens of fashion with The Complete Book of Fashion History. Travel through time and learn about the most popular fashion trends in history, from the animal furs of prehistory to the golden crowns of ancient Egypt. Why did French aristocrats powder their hair? And why did Scottish soldiers wear kilts? From buttons to zippers and leather sandals to high heels, young fashionistas will learn how fashion is often influenced by what’s happening in the world around us. With colorful, engaging illustrations and fascinating historical facts, this quirky historical reference, geared toward young fashionistas, encourages discussion among children and their parents about different cultures and fashion trends through history.
I love that the book is packed with interesting facts and tidbits not only about WHAT people wore, but why the wore it, how it was made, and the stories behind particular trends. Plus, the illustrations are amazing with lots of fun details on every page.
Reader Giveaway: One lucky Jinxy Beauty reader will win their own copy of The Complete Book of Fashion History . To enter, just complete the entry form below by 11:59pm ET on 5/22/17. Good luck!
The Complete Book of Fashion History Giveaway
If you happened to see any photos of Kate Middleton awarding medals this weekend at The Virgin Money London Marathon, you may have noticed her sneakers. They are the same super-comfy shoes adored by models when they have a chance to step out of the high heels – Superga Classic Sneakers.
It’s not a surprise to see her wearing them, because they are super comfy while still being stylish in classic white cotton. They’re perfect for watching runners at the marathon or for running your own errands around town.
What’s even better? They are NOT pricey! They retail for $65, but you can get them for less – as in only $37.99 here. I’m totally not surprised to see Kate wearing such a reasonably priced shoe, and why not? They look great!
