You probably consider brushing your hair a menial task. And, it is! You don’t need to be a hairstylist to grasp that quintessential brushing motion. Even so, there are some things to keep in mind. From the type of brush, your hair state, and more—you could be falling short on your true hair goals without knowing it. It’s time to stop brushing your hair wrong, girl. You don’t need that kind of breakage in your life.
That glow of elation you have on the inside is best worn on the outside, too. But, before you go seeking some color to perfect your style from the sun’s damaging rays, pick up a self tanner instead.

The feeling of the sun on your skin is revitalizing. The effects? Anything but. We’ve all had those days when we’re caught victim to the sun’s rays. Dealing with the aftermath of an angry, red bod is certainly no picnic. But, while you can’t magically rid yourself of the burn, there are ways to help along the healing process and alleviate uncomfortable symptoms. If you’ve recently found yourself sunburnt as opposed to sun-kissed, here’s your guide to healing skin.
Ahhhh, the pool. The perfect place to spend a steamy summer day. Whether you’re enjoying a relaxing solo float or just thankful that it’s keeping the kids busy for more than five minutes, the pool is the perfect place to enjoy some summer vibes. At least it is until you get out and look at your hair. Chlorine damage is no joke, especially if you put a lot of time, effort, and money into your hair. Those dry, brittle strands may seem like the end of the line for your ‘do, but are they really? Fear not! There are ways to come back from even the most intense chlorine damage. Whether you treat it after the fact or take steps to prevent it beforehand, you can (and should) keep pool-hair at bay. You’re going to want to keep this guide to treating chlorine damaged hair handy.
When I actually put in the time for a full makeup look, the last thing I want is for it to be running halfway down my face by the middle of the day. You may think to buy “long-lasting” products, but there’s only so much they can withstand. Setting spray is that final seal against dirt, smears, heat, and more. Think varnish on a table. Not all setting sprays are created equal, though. There’s plenty on the market that are chock full of chemicals or have a drying alcohol base. Obviously, that’s a no-go—especially when you can get the same results with simple, natural ingredients. As a matter of fact, BBE has a secret recipe for DIY natural setting spray. (And it only has two ingredients 😉)
Father’s Day—aka the day you’re obligated to put up with all of the corny jokes, quirks, and dad noises. (We’re talking the yawns, the throat clearing, and the snores, y’all.)

You and your baby bump are about to hit the beach. But before you SPF-Up, make sure you’re putting on a sunscreen that’s totally safe for you and your baby.

Pay day rolls around and you’ve decided to finally treat yourself to that one skincare product on your mind. After a few uses, though, you’re noticing spots starting to make their debut across your complexion. Hold up! Before you go tossing it into the can with a curse under breath about the waste of money, consider the possibility of purging.
Mainstream sunscreens use chemicals like Oxybenzone to shield skin from harmful solar rays (think “Sunburn”). Unfortunately, these same chemicals also poison the ocean’s coral and devastate marine life dependant upon the coral for food and shelter. Sunscreen is essential — we totally get it — but bleaching the reefs is not. In fact, it’s totally, completely preventable. Here’s what you need to know about the reefs, why they’re dying from toxic chemicals found in mainstream sunscreens, and what you can do to save our reefs!
Like any other surface, your beauty tools can come in contact with bacteria, debris, dirt, or other particulates. That’s in addition to the makeup or skincare products you used them with.

Don’t dismay! In this post, we’ll be discussing how to clean and store your beauty tools. It’s simple and well worth it for your skin’s health.
Oh man, talk about the best of both worlds! Not. I sympathize with my fellow combo-skin strugglers.

Despite how trivial this skin type may seem, there are certain products you can use to master it. Here’s our guide to the perfect routine for combination skin.
