Shampoos and other soaps weren’t always made up of an unpronounceable list of chemical ingredients that offer no clarity as to what they actually do. Once upon a time, soap was made out of animal fats, straw, and wood ash and was thought to cure skin diseases. Well, we’ve advanced quite a bit since ancient Babylonia and have learned much about the way bacteria operates and the best ways to combat them. Plain old soap can be abrasive, especially for babies and children – so, baby shampoo was eventually created to be softer and gentler on the baby’s scalp.
The ingredient label on your baby shampoo may leave you puzzled, wondering how all that stuff is actually gentle when you don’t know what it is or why it is in there. Here is a comprehensive list of the types of ingredients that go into your child’s shampoo, and how they function.

Messy hair is in, but that doesn’t mean that you should run out of the house with bed head. Instead, why not try your hand at the “beach wave”? What? You don’t live at the beach? No worries!
While this simple look can be achieved with a curling iron or a straightener, today we’ll walk you through 7 easy steps to mastering the beach wave at home with your curling iron. Once you get the hang of it, the perfect beach wave is easy peasy.
It’s swimsuit season, usually a dreaded time for women everywhere, except for the ones whose bodies we ogle over, whose Instagram pictures we stare at until our eyes bleed, and those who make us feel like no matter how many hours we put into the gym or how many calories we count we will never amount to their bikini-goddess-role-modelness. What if this summer though, we learn how to embrace the body we’ve been graciously given, we try instead to become healthier rather than 6 pack toned, we enjoy our family and friends instead of living in the pit of gym-hell, and we tell ourselves a few things before getting into our swimsuit that might actually build us up instead of tear us down.
Every mom dreams of peaceful mornings: a hot cup of coffee, a warm shower, and a relaxing start to her day. For most moms, however, that is rarely the case. Many times we are rushing ourselves out the door with our kids underfoot. Maybe you are a stay-at-home mom whose morning routine consists of hair in a messy bun, yoga pants on, and a quick brush of some makeup and you are out the door. Or you are a working mom who is expected to do more than the bare minimum to get ready each day and need something that is fast, easy, and provides the coverage needed to cover up those tired eyes and less-than-luminous skin.
As a mom of three young girls, I am no exception. In fact, I’m more like the rule. Getting myself ready is usually low on the totem pole of the list of responsibilities I have in the morning, but I still like to have a decent amount of coverage before I head off to take my oldest to preschool or run errands. I want something that is light and easy to put on, looks natural, and helps to make me look fresh instead of the dead-tired exhaustion that I actually feel. That is where BareMinerals Complexion Rescue comes in to help me with my morning routine.
