natureHappy Earth Day, Neauties Lifestylers!

As you’ve probably heard, today is Earth Day. Today is a day to thank and honor Mother Earth for all she does. She supplies us with all we need, and just look around at this breathtaking scenery!

Today, we encourage you to get outside and just observe some of what our beautiful Mother Earth has to offer. Go to the park, go for an afternoon walk, or just stand in your backyard for a while. Breathe in her rich oxygen, feel her grass between your toes, and take in all the beauty you can. This is a beautiful planet, and she deserves our thanks.

In honor of Earth Day 2015, we are offering Free Shipping on all domestic orders through Saturday, April 25! Visit us at Neauties.com, shop.neauties.com, or Etsy.com to start shopping!

First Day of Spring 2015!

SpringHappy Spring!

Today marks the first day of the 2015 Spring Season! What will you do to celebrate?

Spring is one of the best times of year. Everything is beginning to bloom, the birds are chirping, and the sun is shining! We encourage you to do something fun this weekend to celebrate Spring of 2015.

Relax in your backyard, watch a sunrise or sunset, go hiking, or simply take a walk. Get outside and do something. On your way home today, take a look at all of the plants, insects, birds, and everything else Spring has to offer. Take the moment in like a breath of fresh air, and enjoy it. Give thanks for everything you have: your health, your abilities, your job, your home, your family, your friends, or whatever you feel you should be thankful for. Just take a moment, and live purely in only that moment.

Another great thing to do in the springtime is, of course, spring cleaning. It doesn’t sound fun or enjoyable, but trust me, you will feel so uplifted, clear, and centered once you’re done. Take a few days and clean every nook and cranny. Get rid of everything you don’t use or need anymore. Rearrange your furniture if you can. Organize and create open and flowing spaces everywhere; in your home, your refrigerator, your desk, and yourself.

Now is the time to open your heart, mind, and body. Not only will you feel better now, but you’ll have time to focus on better things this Summer– like family, friends, and fun!

How do you celebrate spring?

Happy Spring, From your Friends here at Neauties!

Love Your Lips!

Love Your Lips

 

Neauties wants you to send your lips some love this year! We’re offering free shipping until February 18, and our favorite tips to love your lips!

One of the best ways to love your lips is to apply a nourishing lip balm several times per day. Neauties’ lip glosses and balms are extremely moisturizing and safe. We use only the highest quality, pure, and natural ingredients we can find. Our lip glosses provide lots of shine, our balms are perfect for on-the-go (a little more firm with less shine), and our Shimmers provide beautiful semi-transparent colors that nourish and color your lips at the same time! With our semi-transparent colors, you don’t have to worry about not having the perfect shade; since your natural lip color shows through, every color is perfect with every skintone!

You should apply lip gloss or balm if you’re going to be in the sun or wind for prolonged periods of time as protection. If you’re looking for those kissably soft lips, apply a bit before bed; it will have 6-8 hours to completely soak in without food and drink getting in the way.

Of course, you should also drink lots of water. It’s always important to drink the recommended amount of water– try drinking at least 64 oz. or half your body weight in ounces. Not only will it make your skin glow, but it will give you extremely soft lips as well! But remember, you can never drink too much water, so if you’re still thirsty, by all means, DRINK UP!

Another awesome lip tip is to use vitamin E and other oils. You can apply the oils directly to your lips or use products with these ingredients in them. All Neauties glosses and balms are infused with vitamin E oil, and they’re made with a special castor oil base to provide long-lasting nourishment. As always, these are high-quality, natural, and pure oils. If you decide to apply oils directly, be sure to do a little research– your best bet is to find 100% pure vitamin E, coconut, almond, or whatever oil you decide to use. Make sure it’s the only ingredient in the list.

And our last tip for healthy, soft lips is to eat your fruits and veggies! It has been said that fruits and vegetables red in color make your lips more pink as a result of the plant’s pigment entering your body. However, we all know that a diet rich in fruits and veggies makes for bright, healthy skin, and your lips are just a thinner, more delicate area of that same skin. So do your lips a favor, and follow the oldest advice in the book… Eat your fruits and veggies!

How do you  Love Your Lips? Visit us at www.neauties.com for the Love Your Lips Sale— Free Shipping until Wednesday, February 18.

Happy Valentine’s Day, from your friends here at Neauties!

Happy Winter 2014!

Today, Sunday, December 21, 2014, marks the official First Day of Winter! For this winter season, we want to give you some tips and reminders. So, without further ado…

 

1. Stay warm and dry. So this one seems obvious, but it’s so easy to get caught up in the “I’ll just be gone for an hour or so” mentality. I learned the hard way that winter weather is one of the most unpredictable. You may wake up to warmer fall weather, only for the temperature to drop after an unexpected thunderstorm midday. Always bring an umbrella and coat with you, just in case. Try a thinner coat and a small umbrella so it’s easily portable. However, if you know it’s going to rain or be cold all day, of course bring your full sized umbrella and warmest coat!

2. Sunscreen. It’s easy to remember your sunscreen in the summer, but it’s just as important in the winter. No matter the temperature, harmful UV rays are still out there shining on your skin. Using a facial moisturizer and a lotion with SPF are an easy way to ensure you never forget to protect your skin!

3. Protect those lips. Chapped lips are most common in winter, and the best protection is prevention. Start the day off right by applying a moisturizing and long-lasting lip balm or gloss. Our Peppermint Lip Balm and Peppermint Lip Gloss are perfect for prevention of chapped lips and healing! Not only are all of our  lip glosses and balms long-lasting, but our Peppermint products are infused with 100% natural peppermint leaf extract in the form of an oil, and true peppermint oil has natural healing properties. This makes our peppermint lip products the best for chapped lip healing and prevention! (Of course, all of our lip products are great for long-lasting protection 😉 )

4. Get plenty of Vitamin C. Vitamin C is crucial to building your immune system for the cold and flu season. I received a great Russian Tea recipe in a blog email about a month ago. This recipe is perfect to drink each day to help prevent all those common winter illnesses. Click here for the recipe and more information!

5. Drink lots of water. Water is another crucial element of building your immune system during the winter. The general rule is to drink half your body weight in ounces each day. Not only will drinking water help you to build your immune system, but you’ll also notice your dry winter skin dissipating as well! All great reasons to drink plenty of water!

 

So there you have it! Our top 5 tips for winter! Do you have any tried and true tips? Leave them in the comments below, we’d love to add your tips to our list!

 

Wishing you a happy holiday season, from our family to yours!

Natural Beauty of the Week ~ October 3

So this week, I wanted to celebrate the official beginning of the fall season. In some places it’s already too cold for shorts and sandals, and in others it’s just starting to cool down. Although sunflowers aren’t exactly an autumn plant, the colors of this painting are definitely reminiscent of the fall season!

Sunflowers---NBOTW

 

This was actually a challenge painting. The challenge was painting the entire picture with one very large, coarse brush. This picture very much reminds me of the autumn season!

Don’t forget, if you’d like to have your own artwork showcased, email us at contact@neauties.com or click on the submissions page above… We’d love to feature you!

We have lots of new goodies coming up for you guys for the fall season, so stay tuned for more fall fun!

Best wishes, and Namaste.

Natural Beauty of the Week ~ September 20

This week’s Neauties’ Natural Beauty OTW is a simple quote by the artist Vincent Van Gogh.

Print

Beauty is everywhere from the smallest blade of grass just breaking Earth’s surface, to the speedy hummingbird drinking nectar from the flowers, to the majestic tiger moving swiftly through the jungle. Beauty can be found anywhere, and it starts with the appreciation of everything that surrounds us. Let nature immerse you in her beauty.

What do you find beauty in?
