Skin Benefits of Turmeric & Turmeric Face Masks

by Megan Cerami @ The Global Beauty

Turmeric You may be asking: what exactly is turmeric? It is actually a spice that has been used for thousands of years in India for medicinal purposes. However, this ingredient works its magic just as well externally as it does internally. It also happens to be the main spice found in curry! Why Is Turmeric So Beneficial For Me? Turmeric is popularly known for its anti-inflammatory properties due to curcumin, which is a type of ginger that is found in turmeric. Curcumin is also known to help ease internal pain and even prevent or slow down the effects of cancer. Another benefit to curcumin found in turmeric is that is can help manage depression. A study in 2013 even showed how well curcumin worked to combat depression on patients who suffered from it. Demonstrating that turmeric is powerful stuff! How Can Turmeric Benefit My Skin? Fighting acne can be difficult, but turmeric can definitely help. Also known for its antibacterial properties, turmeric will naturally fight your breakouts and leave your skin glowing. Mix some turmeric powder along with plain yogurt and a few drops of lemon juice to create an acne-fighting turmeric face mask. Just leave on for ten minutes and […]

The Power of Positive Thinking

by Bianca Bello @ The Global Beauty

I hope you are having a great week so far Global Beauties 🙂 Positive thinking is a powerful thing! Convincing myself to think positive has helped me grow into the person I am today. Throughout high school, like your average teenage girl (or boy), I faced some hard times – and we know that teenage hormones can add mountains to tiny hills – but I got through them through counteracting negative emotions with much more positive ones. Turning negative vibes and thoughts into positive ones increased my confidence greatly. In particular, I recall learning about The Secret, a self-help book written by Rhonda Byrne. This book, much like The Power of Positive Thinking, a self-help book written by Norman Vincent Peale, introduced people to the world of positive vibes and open hearts. Which in turn, leads to confidence and feeling downright beautiful – all of the time. image (source) The benefits of positive thinking outweigh negative energy by a landslide: we think better, feel better, look better, are more involved and conscious, and have more energy to use towards success. There are many tips and tricks for living a more positive and understanding lifestyle, some can be found here on […]

How To Dye Easter Eggs With Food-Based Ingredients

by Stephanie P @ The Global Beauty

Dye Easter Eggs Naturally With Real Food-Based Ingredients I loved Easter as a child! I still vividly remember the feeling of waking up to an Easter basket full of goodies that the Easter bunny brought, dyeing eggs, Easter egg hunts, and of course eating the Easter eggs that I found because I was hungry from all of the searching and playing. The smell of white vinegar although sour, it is a lovely reminder of those sweet childhood memories. Although I do not have children of my own yet, I was still inspired to try dyeing Easter eggs using real food-based ingredients for my inner child. Also, practice makes perfect! I want to share with you what I did to create beautiful naturally colored eggs. It takes a bit more time and preparation, but I found it to be so much fun to see what colors would be extracted from the different fruits and vegetables that I used. Dyeing eggs this way was a real educational experience for me and I felt more connected with nature. After all, this is how people used to dye fabrics back in the day before synthetic dyes were created. Besides the educational aspects and the excitement […]

Skin Benefits of Cleansing Grains

by Stephanie P @ The Global Beauty

Hello Beauties! Today I want to share an article with you about cleansing grains. Cleansing is one of the most important steps in skincare, if not the most important. Cleansing helps remove makeup, dirt, grime, and bacteria from your skin allowing it to breathe and rest. Over the past few months, I’ve been getting into using cleansing grains on days that I didn’t wear makeup. The reason being, on days that I did wear makeup, I prefer to use an oil-based cleanser then a water-based cleanser in a two-step process called double cleansing. I will discuss double cleansing in another post 😉 So let’s get into the nitty gritty of cleansing grains! From the article “Cleansing Grains: The Natural Exfoliant for Sensitive Skin” by Victoria Hoff I have pulled key points to share with you ~ Earlier this year, President Obama signed a bill to officially ban the use of microbeads in the United States—a long-awaited victory for environmentalists, since the tiny plastic spheres found in toothpaste and skin scrubs have been found to severely impact marine life after they make their way from our drains to our oceans. Microbeads aren’t just bad for the environment, but for your skin as […]

Top Picks For Foodies: The Best Vegetarian Food In Hoi An, Vietnam


Trip101

Hoi An and Danang, on Vietnam’s central coast, have so much to offer. Beautiful beaches, friendly people, and lush local scenery. But unbeknownst to many travelers, these adjacent coastal towns have something else to make a certain subset of travelers come running: awesome vegetarian food. Not a vegetarian? Not a problem. A number of Danang and Hoi An eateries serve food that isn’t only vegetarian friendly, it’s light, fresh, and sustainable. In other words, these cities’ food scenes are great for the health- or ingredient-conscious eater.

Why Use Organic Fresh Face Masks?

by Bianca Bello @ The Global Beauty

What are organic fresh face masks? Organic fresh face masks are masks made with organic ingredients that you have right in your kitchen. These masks are great because they only contain natural and wholesome ingredients that you can also eat. For example, a guacamole face mask! Simply mash up half an avocado with 2 tablespoons of honey, apply to your face for 20 minutes and boom –  your skin feels instantly refreshed, especially if your skin is on the drier side. Why is it important to use organic ingredients? It’s simple. Chemicals that we cannot pronounce (or have never heard of) are not healthy for us, so why should we settle for skincare that could harm us? Although finding the best organic skincare is easier said than done, it doesn’t have to be difficult. With enough information and research, we can truly understand the importance of using organic ingredients, both inside and out! In order to protect our skin, our largest organ, we must treat it properly. By not using organic skincare products or natural makeup, we are opening up the opportunity for our body to soak in harmful chemicals like phthalates or parabens.  Phthalates or parabens can damage the liver, […]

January in Breb. Life in the Freezer

by Alyson Long for World Travel Family @ World Travel Family

We’ve been waiting for this. When we first had the idea of basing ourselves in Romania, locals told us winter temperatures can easily drop to -25C.

Why It’s Important to Exfoliate Your Skin

by Megan Cerami @ The Global Beauty

Life is back in full swing now that we are nearing the end of January. This means you can be busy beyond belief, which can do some damage to your skin if you don’t take the time to exfoliate it. With everything that happens on a day-to-day basis, your pores can become clogged with sweat, dirt, and dead skin cells. By exfoliating at the end of a work filled day you are clearing your skin of those old dead skin cells and exposing fresh new skin that is hiding underneath. The best part about exfoliating your skin properly is that once your skin is stripped of all the dead skin cells it opens your pores up to allow your toner and moisturizer to sink more deeply into your skin. This will further help fight against any impurities that may lie on the surface of the skin and leave it soft and glowing due to increased blood circulation after exfoliation. So, how often should you exfoliate? This really depends on your skin type. If you are like me and have sensitive skin it is best to exfoliate about twice a week. If you find that it’s still too harsh on your skin, then […]

How Endocrine Disruptors in Your Personal Products Affect Your Health

by Stephanie P @ The Global Beauty

Hello Global Beauties, If you are in the USA, did you vote today? I hope so! Today’s blog post is about another choice that you get to vote for. You get to vote whether or not you buy personal and skincare products that contain harmful chemicals that are endocrine disruptors. Even though you are not physically casting your vote, by choosing not to buy certain products, you are letting the companies/manufacturers know that you don’t want to buy what they are selling and their sales numbers will decrease. It’s all supply and demand! I’m sure you are now wondering what endocrine disruptors are and what they do. But before we dive into that, I want to explain the functions of the endocrine system. The endocrine system is the collection of glands that produce hormones that regulate metabolism, growth and development, tissue function, sexual function, reproduction, sleep, and mood, among other things. The endocrine system is made up of the pituitary gland, thyroid gland, parathyroid glands, adrenal glands, pancreas, ovaries (in females) and testicles (in males). In general, a gland selects and removes materials from the blood, processes them and secretes the finished chemical product for use somewhere in the body. The endocrine system […]
