There are certain beauty items that are indispensable to every gal on the go.

These also make handy carry cases for rolled up bills or a key. For those unexpected snags, packing a nail file can be helpful.

Did you know that environmental factors like heat, wind, low humidity, and high altitude can directly impact your skin?

Research by the National Climatic Data Center identified some cities that are toughest on your skin. Fortunately, New York was not listed among them. Find out which cities top the list.

Although winter did not officially begin, the season seems to be getting a head start this year. We have already had days in November that were more reminiscent of January weather. If this is any prediction of the coming winter days, you can get ready to combat the lower temperatures as well as your skin’s loss of moisture. Dry indoor heating systems don’t help matters either. The following tips will provide your skin with some TLC and the extra pampering it will need.
