The holidays are awesome… mostly.  Sometimes they can be a little rough, and more often than not they’re just downright stressful for everyone involved.  Between the holiday cards (mine are sitting in a stack on my desk, unwritten and without postage), all the holiday parties for work and friends, cookie exchanges and a-million-and-one very, very important not-to-be-missed orchestra, band, and drama performances, (not to mention miscellaneous grade school Christmas plays) a girl can get a little frazzled around the edges.  For me, the first thing to go (aside from my healthy diet *ahem*) is my skin.  When I get stressed, my face shows it: acne breakouts and dry, flaky skin are among the biggest culprits but I’ve heard some people (I’m talking about a friend here) can get stressed enough to break out in hives.  Let’s not do that this holiday season.  Let’s be calm people, happy people, super not-stressed, on-top-of-it-all, the-holidays-are-meant-to-feel-happy people.

How is one to achieve such inner zen?  I’m glad you asked.  I have 7 delicious DIY beauty recipes for you – treat yourself happy this holiday season and spread the positive energy!
