You're probably busy with a lot on your plate: exercise, kids, dog, work, grocery shopping, socializing, etc. I'm sure you barely have enough time to shower every day, let alone do all those little household things you're supposed to do like wash out your garbage can (eww mold) and vacuum under your bed (sneaky dust bunnies). Changing my sheets goes along with that, too. In a perfect world, I'd put fresh sheets on the bed once a week, but realistically speaking, I admit that doesn't always happen. For my face's sake though, I definitely make sure to at least change my pillowcase every Sunday. Just think about all the oils, hair products, lotions, (and drool) that come off your head and onto your pillow. All that gunk can clog your pores and cause breakouts. Prevent acne breakouts by changing your pillowcase at least once a week. If you can, toss your entire pillow into the dryer to kill bacteria that collects in there.
Orange you glad your mom made you drink your OJ as a kid? Welcome to the first part of my five-part series on vitamin C and beauty. Lately, there has been a lot of hype about vitamin C in skin care, so l decided to find out about the benefits.
Apparently, it takes 24 hours for any vitamin C that your body digests to reach your skin and not nearly enough of it makes its way there. Hence, the popularity of topical treatments. Studies show that "C" helps with firmness and overall health of your skin, plus it's a great antioxidant that helps fight environmental damages! Looks like for a great complexion, orange is all the rage.
Darphin Arovita C Line Response Lifting Serum ($125) is a deliciously scented vitamin C face serum that stimulates the skin and helps it stop the signs of aging. It improves resilience, combats lost elasticity, gives your skin a nice glowy look and it helps reduce fine line and wrinkles. Use in the evening for a more intense treatment.

I don't want to be a downer, but I just read that according to the Skin Cancer Foundation, nearly 77% of people are not using sunscreen regularly.
Skin cancer is the most common of all cancers and is primarily caused by sun exposure. Melanoma, the most deadly form of skin cancer, has slowly become the most common cancer type in women ages 25-29.
Just because it's cold out, doesn't mean you're safe from the sun. If you're the kind of person who lives for winter sports, you need a sunscreen that will be sweatproof, waterproof and last as long as you're out, so you don't have to bother with re-applying.
Himaya was started by 2 major snowboarders (one who created Duotone Snowboards, and one who was VP of sales for Burton Snowboards) so you know it works.
Their products are hypoallergenic and not tested on animals. They contain Vitamins E and C to replace nutrients that are lost during sun exposure. They're meant to be worn and forgotten about so you can focus on having fun outside.
Fit's Tip: Himaya makes a Cold Protection SPF 30 sunscreen to protect your skin against wind chill.
