Thank you Truvia for sponsoring this video! The holidays are almost here, and I don’t know about you, but this is my favorite time of year to bake! Instead of sugar, I use Truvia Sweet Complete Sweeteners to keep my sweetness on point during the holiday season while still ensuring my holiday goodies are carb-conscious.
If you didn’t know, I’ve been using Truvia for years and the products I’m using today – Truvia Sweet Complete Granulated All-Purpose and Confectioners Sweeteners – make it easy to add a touch of sweetness to your festive desserts. They’re a one-to-one replacement for traditional and confectioners sugars and contain zero-calories per serving, which is perfect for helping me to stay on track and make the most of this season.
These are perfect for sharing with friends, family or bringing to your upcoming holiday parties and gatherings!

Exercise Your Way To A Beautiful Body
Feeling great and looking beautiful at all times is essential for many women to be happy, but it’s hard to be beautiful 24 hours a day, unless you know the right beauty tricks. Whether you want to be glamorous or prefer a natural look, this article contains the solid tips to help you stay gorgeous morning, noon and night.
It is crucial to apply moisturizer to your face. Use a moisturizer even if your skin is greasy and oily. Always make certain to select lotions or moisturizers that contain SPF.
Keep your eye gel in your refrigerator. This can help soothe puffy eyes or dark circles around your eyes. Cool eye gel can really make your eyes look refreshed after a long night out. Just apply it as you normally would to see results that are immediate and will last all day.
Take your time applying a fake tan. Make sure you have at least 30 minutes before going to bed or getting dressed. If you are in a hurry then wait to do it because you may get streaky results. It is important to make sure you properly apply a fake tan.
Is your manicure ruined almost immediately with chips and scratches? A top coat can help the look last as long as a week. Do not mix this up with your usual clear nail polish. Although you may not think there’s much of a difference between the two, there is. Don’t buy clear polish. You need the top coat.
Apply cream to your eyes every night. The skin around your eyes is delicate, and not as thick as the skin elsewhere on your face. This makes the skin around your eyes more prone to be lined and dry. Keeping the skin moist is a simple solution to that beauty problem.
A handy beauty tip is to add a little nail polish remover to your nail polish. This helps to thin the nail polish out and make it last a little longer. It is also a good technique to use when your nail polish is a little older and has started to thicken up a bit.
Remove the arch from your eyebrows if you have a problem with dark circles under your eyes. The arch in your eyebrows can create a circular look around your eyes. This can exaggerate any dark circles you might already have. To remedy this, just tweeze your eyebrows so that they are straighter.
Use hydrogen peroxide to cure yellowed nails. Nothing is beautiful about yellowing nails. To fix this problem, soak cotton in peroxide and then wipe each nail for several strokes. Let it sit on your nails for a few minutes. Rinse your nails, and admire the lack of yellow coloring.
Before you start working on your outer beauty you should first understand exactly what your reasons for this are. If you want to be beautiful just in order to impress others you will have a difficult journey. However, if you are doing it for yourself you will find it to be even easier than you anticipated.
If you have found a shampoo and conditioner that work well for you, then you should stick with them even if the brands may be different. It is best to choose those that have the same style intentions, however, such as getting both products for curl enhancers, color enhancers, etc., as the ingredients will be similar.
A proven solution to dead skin buildup is to use a pumice stone in the shower. The skin is much softer when it absorbs moisture from the shower so it will come off easier. Do not use a razor to remove dead skin, this causes more skin to grow back in the areas which it was removed.
Enhance your eyes by doing work on your eyelashes. Many women just apply mascara and go on their way. If you take the additional second to curl your eyelashes prior to applying the mascara, you will accentuate the eyes better than you would if you just apply the mascara.
Keep lotion around at all times. You never know when your appearance will be in need of some quick fixes. You can use lotion to remedy dry skin and even smooth frizzy hair. Squeeze a pearl-sized amount to your hair and blend it in.
For a night out, consider getting eyelash extensions. Eyelash extensions are wonderful for special events. By adding eyelash extensions, your eyes can be opened up, which will provide you with a more youthful appearance. You’ll be very pleased with your appearance.
Before you purchase any type of organic products be sure to understand the ingredients. Many types of organic products are completely unregulated and this can lead to problems later. If you trust the source, organic products can be a great, they are slightly more expensive option for you and your family.
If you are worried that your favorite fragrance may fade away during the day, think of adding some to your hair. You don’t want to spray it directly on your hair, but, instead, spray a light mist to the bristles of a brush and run it through your hair. You and your hair will smell great for the rest of the day.
Smile more often. This one tip can make you look years younger and more beautiful. Smiling attracts people to you and it makes your eyes sparkle and your cheeks flush. Not only that, but it has an internal effect as well. Smiling can make you feel a little happier too.
When you don’t have time to wash your hair, you can use a dry shampoo to perk up your limping locks. Use a round brush when you blow-dry your roots to create volume. The dry shampoo and the natural oils in your hair will work together to produce a thickening effect.
Now that you’ve gleaned some tips to help you stay radiant 24/7, it’s going to be hard not to look in every mirror you pass. Enjoy your new confidence when you apply the advice that you’ve learned here, and get used to the constant compliments that you’ll be receiving from admirers and envious others.
