FDA puts e-cig makers on notice: Fix ‘epidemic’ teen use or products may be pulled from market

The FDA said it cannot tolerate "a whole generation of young people becoming addicted to nicotine as a trade off for enabling adults to access these products," and so it has launched a crackdown on sales of e-cigarettes to teens.

These Products Help You Hold It Together With a Raging Hangover

Let’s face it: hangovers are the WORST. The night before was so fun, but the next morning? Hateful. The pounding headache and the incredible nausea are bad enough, but what it does to your complexion is just really rude: dullness, dryness, sallow and sunken skin. You look like you feel, and it’s not cute.

That hungover appearance is a result of your body entering survival mode from all the toxins coursing through your system. “Basically, having a hangover is akin to having a bear chasing you when it comes to what happens to your body, particularly your skin,” explains Mona Gohara, M.D., a licensed dermatologist in Danbury, CT. “All that alcohol triggers your body’s stress response into “fight or flight” mode where all the functions that aren’t keeping you alive cease. Once your stress hormones are elevated, blood and hydration are routed to the heart, lungs and eyes, which results in water retention around certain organs — like the eyes — and the tell-tale signs of dehydration in the skin: dry, sullen, sunken skin, lack of color, rough texture and tone.” Also, it can cause acne in those prone to the condition. “Cortisol levels increase as the stress response happens, and cortisol levels drive acne. You’re also sleep deprived, and that also drives cortisol levels up. Both of these things can cause acne to flare up,” Gohara says.

Now that you’re aware of what causes that less-than-stellar appearance after a bender, let’s talk about how to put yourself back together. Gohara says the key words here are “cooling” and “hydrating” — you want to soothe that inflammatory response and replace your moisture loss ASAP. Whether you’ve got a day to recover or a short window of time before you have to be a person in the world again, here are the best beauty product hangover cures — including hair because you have to handle that, too.

Green Cleaning Products That Actually Work

green cleaning products that actually workUsing eco-friendly cleaning products sounds like a great idea, but not all of them can get the job done — so today we’re sharing tips on green cleaning products that actually work, whether you’re integrating them into your own routines for keeping a clean house or you’re asking your cleaning service to use green cleaning products.

(We’ve talked about the hiring a cleaning professional and discussed our general cleaning systems, and we recently shared the busy woman’s guide to last-minute cleaning, but we’ve never specifically looked at green cleaners. Over at CorporetteMoms we’ve looked at when working moms should hire a cleaning service.)

One product I really like is Method Bathroom Cleaner. It’s not the most effective bathroom cleaner in the world, but it doesn’t irritate my lungs like harsh cleaners do, and it’s safer for my skin. Kat is a fellow fan of Method products — though at her house, it’s Method Daily Shower Spray Cleaner — and she also likes ChemFree Toilet Cleaner (which uses “mineral magnets”) and the Zip-It drain cleaning tool as an alternative to Drano [affiliate links].

To get some more tips on green cleaning products that actually work, I talked to a few professional women who do varying amounts of their housecleaning with green products. One of those is Holly S. of Fairfax, VA, who started using green cleaners more often when her first child reached toddler age. “I’ve read a lot about the chemicals in many mainstream cleaners,” she says. “There are skin irritants, chemicals linked to asthma, carcinogens, not to mention the fact that many are bad for the environment. So I wanted to start using cleaners made from all natural cleaners that would be healthier all the way around.”

DIY Green Cleaning Products That Actually Work

Holly gets her “recipes” for green cleaners from books, such as The Hands-On Home by Erica Strauss [affiliate link], and parenting/natural living blogs, such as Mommypotamus. “A few have been trial and error after reading ideas about how best to clean certain areas and objects, and then I’ve experimented with different ingredients,” she says. Holly makes her own all-purpose cleaner, glass cleaner, floor cleaner (used with a Swiffer-style wet mop), toilet cleaner, and others. “My favorite is a simple all-purpose cleaner, which is made of water, Castile soap, and essential oils,” she says. “It leaves no residue, the citrus oils cut through grease as effectively as any other cleaner I’ve ever used, and certain essential oils even have antimicrobial effects, so they leave my surfaces wonderfully clean.”

Pam Moore, who lives in Boulder, CO, makes cleaning spray with water, vinegar, essential oils (tea tree or peppermint or lemon), and ammonia — sometimes replacing ammonia with Dawn. (Remember to never mix ammonia with bleach.) For homemade laundry detergent, she mixes Borax, washing soda, soap, and water. When she mops the floor with a steam mop, Pam uses water with a few drops of essential oil for a nice scent. “I definitely think the kitchen counter spray and laundry soap work just as well as what I used to buy at the store,” she says.

Emily Farmer Popek of Oneonta, NY, has found green products to be effective, too. “Honestly, the homemade solutions — vinegar, baking soda — work just as well as literally any other cleaning product I’ve ever used, if not better! Especially for cleaning really terrible gunk — like ovens.”

Store-Bought Green Cleaning Products That Actually Work

If you don’t have time to make your own green cleaning products (or just don’t feel like it — that would be me), you have plenty to choose from at the grocery store or Amazon, of course. But the FTC has caught many companies making misleading claims about green products, so how do you know whether to trust the manufacturers’ ads and labeling? Companies aren’t even required to give the complete list of a cleaning product’s ingredients on its label. A few helpful resources from this Washington Post article are the EPA’s Safer Choice label, Whole Foods’ Eco-Scale rating (only for products sold at their stores), and UL’s ECOLOGO Product Certification. Note that The Environmental Working Group may not be the best resource for this — the advocacy group has often been criticized for fear-mongering and incorrect claims.

In addition to her own mixtures, Pam uses store-bought products, such as Method peppermint cleaning spray for the bathroom, and Emily is yet another fan of Method’s offerings. “They make a squirt-and-mop cleaner for wood floors that I LOVE. I don’t like strong fragrances, so that’s a big plus for me,” she says. She has found, however, that green products don’t really cut it when it comes to toilets and tubs. “We have hard water, which leaves a residue on surfaces that’s just REALLY hard to bust up without some serious industrial strength cleansers — and/or a lot of elbow grease!” [affiliate link]

Lawyer/journalist and Corporette contributor Rebecca Berfanger often uses lavender Dr. Bronner’s Pure-Castile Liquid Soap, which can be used for all sorts of home tasks, such as cleaning the bathtub, and is part of this DIY laundry detergent recipe. (The description on the Dr. Bronner’s website recommends their Castile soap for “Face, body, hair & food, dishes, laundry, mopping, pets” — and it’s fair-trade, too.) Rebecca also likes a green laundry detergent called ECOS. She uses green cleaning products (such as these Green Works wipes) for cleaning things her cats will be in close contact with — and for household spot cleaning, she uses either the wipes or a green cleaning spray.

If you’re interested in making your own housecleaning a bit more environmentally-friendly, you don’t have to rush out and buy a lot of green products or start putting together elaborate concoctions in your kitchen. Emily has this advice: “I honestly would recommend starting off by seeing what you can do with, yes, vinegar and baking soda. It’s truly amazing how many cleaning products you can replace with just those two ingredients! And for me it was empowering to be able to start with something that was already right there in my cupboard.”

Note: For this post, we do recognize that anecdotes do not equal science (check out this article by Wirecutter’s science editor, who has a PhD in chemistry), but the cleaners used by the women we talked to clearly work for them! Also, note that the word “natural” doesn’t have an official meaning, and “green” can be vague, too — but they’re hard to avoid in a post like this. 

Have you found green cleaning products that actually work? Have you hired a cleaning service that uses green cleaners? Why did you make the switch? (Are there certain chemicals you’re especially worried about?) Do you make your own or use store-bought? Which ones have you found that work really well, and which haven’t really been up to the task? Do you find yourself spending more or less money with environmentally-friendly cleaning?

11 Beauty Products That’ll Give Your Skin That Coveted Bounce

Flawless skin is hydrated, balanced, radiant and even. Bouncy is another word to add to the list of adjectives. It may initially seem like an odd way to describe skin, but bouncy skin equals youthful, perky skin. That’s something everyone’s after, right?

Kat Burki, CEO and founder of Kat Burki, elaborates that when skin care products claim to improve skin’s bounce, they’re referring to improving its elasticity and firmness for a supple, taut appearance. Having more bounce becomes more important with age. “As we age, we tend to produce less collagen and elastin, which naturally give skin its bounce and elasticity,” says Burki. “To improve bounce, the ideal formula would contain ingredients that boost collagen and elastin while hydrating, plumping and smoothing skin.” Neuropeptides are one of those key ingredients because they repair and rebuild your skin’s elasticity.

You probably already have products for bouncy hair, now it’s time to set your sights on your skin. These 11 skin care products boost bounce while tackling other skin care concerns.

Amazon Prime members can shop exclusive new products through July 31

For years, Black Friday had been the day for deals and shopping, basically serving as the unofficial kickoff to the Christmas season. Stores get packed with people looking to score the best deals on things like kitchen appliances, TVs, and clothes. And though Cyber Monday has emerged as a way to get around the madness of Black Friday, historically speaking the summer has been a deal dead zone.

All that changed in 2015 with the first Amazon Prime Day. It originally started as a way to celebrate the company’s 20th anniversary with a day of big sales. These sales served as exclusives to Prime members and as a means to bring in more Prime sign ups. But what started as a one-day celebration of sales has become an annual tradition, serving as the Black Friday of the summer. Read more…

11 Dew Products That Will Make Your Skin Glow This Summer

The beauty industry is full of buzzwords. Longwear, glazing, ampoule, skin barrier, glass skin, hydrating, anti-pollution and the newly controversial anti-aging. But the latest It term in the space is all about the dew.

Dew has its name on everything from highlighters to eye treatments to mists to serums. Usually, it’s associated with magically turning problem skin into glowing skin. Or it’s another way of bragging that the product is a super moisturizer.

But not all dewy products are created equal. So we went ahead and hunted down the best ones that had glowing reviews. We’re talking a blush that gives a natural, baby pink hue, a cream/powder hybrid that promises a dewy finish without the stickiness, and a much-loved highlighter in a limited-edition rose gold shade. Read on for 11 dew products that really deliver.

12 Mushroom Skin Care Products That Work Like Magic

Beauty has been going green in more ways than one. In addition to more vegan, cruelty-free products, we’re seeing ones that are packed with superfoods plus fruits and vegetables. Similar to food and wellness trends, there are certain buzzy ingredients that seem to be everywhere. Watermelon is one of the hottest ingredients for summer, with the juicy fruit showing up in everything from masks to serums. Pomegranate, avocado and almost every leafy green have enjoyed their time in the spotlight. Now it’s the divisive mushroom that’s popping up in skin care launches, making it a perfect candidate for the next It ingredient.

Whether you love eating them or fall into the camp of people who find mushrooms too earthy to eat, you’ll like them in beauty routines, promise. When it comes to skin care, mushrooms can be pretty magical — which is why they’ve been used in Chinese medicine for thousands of years. According to Dr. Lamees Hamdan, founder and CEO of Shiffa, it’s the variety of mushrooms to choose from that makes them interesting. “There is no one hero mushroom,” she says. “Different varieties have different properties.” Hamdan suggests looking for a product that has a blend of at least three different mushrooms to get the most benefits.

In general, mushrooms are popular in skin care because they soothe, soften and provide mega moisture. Some, like reishi, are “super antioxidants,” Hamdan says. Joanna Vargas, celebrity facialist and founder of Joanna Vargas Salon and Skin Care Collection, says that tremella fuciformis, aka snow fungus, has the ability to retain moisture in skin even more than hyaluronic acid. It also has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties and has been proven to accelerate wound healing.

In addition to knowing whether a product has oyster, enoki, chaga, portobello mushrooms or another variety, Hamdan says it’s helpful to know the extraction method of the mushroom as well as what part of the mushroom is used because products that typically use the whole mushroom are best. In terms of specific products, Vargas says mushrooms are mostly found in serums, masks and moisturizers.

There’s no need to go foraging beauty aisles on a hunt for fungi. We’ve gone ahead and rounded up the best mushroom skin care products so you can see for yourself just how good ‘shrooms are.

10 Hair Tinting Products for a No-Risk, Temporary Color Boost

Gorgeous hair is forever the goal, right? We think so. And with all the time and money spent perfecting our hair color, it only makes sense to want to make the most of it. While we could go to the salon every four weeks for a touch-up, we prefer to focus on making our hair color last as long as possible and one of our favorite tricks is using a color-depositing product.

Color-depositing hair care products can do everything from conceal roots and boost color between salon visits to create custom tinted looks on your natural hue that will only last a few shampoos. While some neutralize brassiness, others add a dose of vibrant color for a unique new look. So, whether you have natural or color-treated blonde, brown, red (or rainbow!) hair, there’s a color-depositing hair care product for you. Read on for 10 of our favorites.

When we think about our feet during the dark days of winter, it’s usually in reference to covering them up to keep warm. We debate about whether we could slip on one more pair of socks and we shop for the warmest pair of fleece-lined boots we can find. Now that it’s sandal season, we realize we’ve pretty much ignored our feet for the last few months.

For feet in desperate need of a pampering session, there’s no need to book an intensive pedicure. There are a number of buffing, smoothing and soothing foot products that can be used at home. Foot peels are always good, but that’s just one option. If you’re not into shedding your skin like a snake, you can try foot scrubs, intensive moisturizing creams, heel treatments and even sock-like foot masks. They all have the common goal of turning callused, dry soles into smooth, baby soft feet you can show off this summer. Ahead, shop some of the best foot treatments for sandal season.

The Best Cruelty-Free Beauty Products (Reader Favorites!)

the best cruelty-free makeupAfter putting together our Slow Fashion Shopping Guide and sharing more recent posts on brands offering stylish vegan shoes for the office and clothing and accessory brands for the stylish vegan professional, we thought it was time to take a look at cruelty-free makeup — so today we’re featuring the best cruelty-free beauty products, as well as a list of resources to help you find even more.

Labeling a product “cruelty-free” typically means that it hasn’t been tested on animals, but you may also encounter other phrases: “not tested on animals,” “against animal testing,” etc. Here’s another complicating factor: Animal testing within the U.S. has thankfully become rare, and the E.U. has banned animal testing of both cosmetic ingredients and finished products, but in China, imported cosmetics must be tested on animals. If, say, your company’s mascaras are tested on animals, you can’t sell them in Europe — but you can’t sell them in China without testing them on animals, either by your company itself or by the Chinese government. To make it easier to find beauty products that are cruelty-free — and to check the brands you’re currently using — we’ve listed many online resources at the bottom of this post.

Psst: Have you seen our post on beauty empties — the products you finish and then buy again?

Here are Corporette readers’ picks for the best cruelty-free products, from drugstore to higher-end brands:

FDA: Don’t use teething products with benzocaine

by

Claudia Boyd-Barrett

posted in Parenting

Over-the-counter teething products that contain the pain reliever benzocaine are dangerous to your child and should not be used, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) warned parents this week.

The agency is ordering companies to stop selling these products, and to add warnings on other types of oral-use benzocaine medications stating they not be used for teething pain or given to children under age 2.

Benzocaine can lead to a rare but potentially fatal condition in young children called methemoglobinemia, which greatly reduces the amount of oxygen in the blood, the FDA stated. Signs and symptoms can occur within a few minutes to a couple of hours after using the product, and include pale, gray- or blue-colored skin, lips and nails; shortness of breath; sleepiness; headache; lightheadedness; and a rapid heart rate, the agency said.

Teething-baby

Over-the-counter medicines that contain benzocaine include the brand names Anbesol, Baby Orajel, Cepacol, Chloraseptic, Hurricaine, Orabase, Orajel and Topex, as well as store brands and generics, according to the FDA. They’re sold as gels, sprays, ointments, solutions and lozenges. In addition to finding benzocaine in teething products, you might also find it in products marketed for treating sore throats, canker sores, and mouth and gum irritation.

It’s not the first time the FDA has issued warnings about teething products. Last year, the agency told parents not to give children homeopathic teething tablets that contain the ingredient belladonna.

Ironically, tablets and gels aren’t very effective at easing babies’ teething pain anyway, experts agree. The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) says medication rubbed onto your baby’s gums for teething tends to wash out within a few minutes. Instead, help your teething baby feel better by giving him something firm or cold to chew on, or rub a clean finger softly over his gums.

Found: 7 Best Contour Products for Dark Skin

A well-defined facial structure is a makeup look that doesn’t seem to be going out of style anytime soon. The trick to achieving it? Contouring — an age-old makeup technique that gained popularity in the beauty community a couple of years ago after celebrities like Kim Kardashian started raving about how they use it to transform their faces temporarily.

As popular as it is, there just aren’t enough products on the market with shades deep enough that women of color can use. Remember: In order to properly sculpt any part of your face, you need a complexion product two or three shades darker than your skin. So when there aren’t many options out there that are darker than caramel, it’s really difficult for women of color to properly sculpt their faces as they please.

All in all, while the pickings are limited for those rich in melanin, there are some high-performing contour palettes, powders and sticks worth checking out if you want to try out contouring if you have darker skin. Ahead, we’ve compiled a range of them at all price points.

Harmony Juvenile Products Recalls 148,165 Big Boost Deluxe Booster Seats

by

Michelle Stein

posted in Products

Parents and caregivers of older kids should definitely take note of a new recall affecting nearly 150,00 car booster seats.

On Thursday, Harmony Juvenile Products recalled 148,165 of its Big Boost Deluxe booster seats, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA.) In the event of a crash, the seat belt may cause excessive force to be applied to the restrained child’s chest. Consequently, this “excessive force” can increase the risk of injury during a car accident.

The Big Boost Deluxe booster seats were sold at Walmart, among other retailers. The seat was designed to fit children between 30 and 110 pounds and between 34-57 inches tall.

Harmony’s product page for the seat notes this seat was the winner of the IIHS BEST BET Award from 2016 to 2018. Interestingly, BEST BETs are seats that “provide good belt fit for typical 4 to 8 year-olds in almost any car, minivan or SUV,” according to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. The description also claims the seat “exceeds US FMVSS 213 standards.”

The remedy for this recall was still “under development” at press time, according to the NHTSA, and the manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule.

“To our understanding, there have been no injuries or incidents as a result of this non-compliance anywhere in the world including USA, Europe and Canada,” Harmony said, according to NBC12. “We are working in conjunction with NHTSA on a remedy.”

In the meantime, owners can contact Harmony customer service at 1-877-306-1001, call the NHTS Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or visit safercar.gov for more information.

What do you think of this recall? Do you own one of these booster seats?

11 Beauty Products That’ll Save Your Skin From (Shudder) Recycled Plane Air

Travel — or rather, stale, recycled airplane air — is notorious for doing a number on your skin. It sucks all the good things out of your face, leaving it tight, dry and annoyingly breakout-prone. Still, dreaded plane air is a necessary evil one must face in order to cross great distances — for pleasure, business, familial obligation, etc. — in a timely manner.

On the bright side, these days, the general population is pretty obsessed with skin care. You’ll often see people performing entire hydration-minded skin care routines in-flight without attracting so much as a side-glance from their neighbor. In short, there’s no need to suffer through dryness and dullness for the sake of social decorum, or anything else.

With that in mind, check out the slideshow above for some genius travel beauty tips, plus 11 TSA-approved (aka under-3.4 ounce) skin care products that, when used correctly, will prevent you from touching down looking like a shriveled-up prune. Throw them in a plastic baggie, throw that in your carry-on, arrive looking impossibly dewy and fresh.

And if you’re more of an audio-visual learner, check out beauty blogger Tamira Jarrel’s simple(-ish) in-flight travel routine in the video below.

Bon voyage.

Brow talk: The best eyebrow products to accentuate your arches

How to go from fine to full in a matter of minutes

best eyebrow products

Our brow preferences couldn’t have changed much more over the last decade. Gone are the super-sparse brows of the naughties; instead, we’re now beefing them up using the best eyebrow products money can buy.

But not everyone was blessed with thick, full, Delevingne-esque eyebrows and, sadly, the majority of us have to fake it in the brow department.

While microblading treatments have rapidly gained popularity over the last few years, we wouldn’t blame you for being reluctant to spend a few hundred quid on getting your brows filled in. The best eyebrow products are a much cheaper solution when looking how to get thicker eyebrows.

From velvety soft pencils that’ll fill your eyebrows in stroke-by-stroke, to thickening pomades and growth-enhancing serums, the world’s your oyster when it comes to formulas and shades.

So where do you start when choosing the best brow products? If you like a thick, dark and defined brow shape, choose a pomade like Benefit’s Ka-Brow. The thin angular brush enables you to easily outline and fill your brows out into.

If you prefer a more natural look, try a clear brow gel (we love Bobbi Brown and Glossier’s). These will fix your brows in place without it looking like your wearing any product at all.

When choosing a colour, the key is to always go for a duskier, earthier shade of your hair colour – very warm or orange-toned brows look too ‘done’ and unnatural-looking. And ideally, stay within a two shade range – no more than one shade lighter or darker than your current hair colour.

Once you’re clued up on the best eyebrow shapes for your face shape, read on for the Marie Claire approved eyebrow products you can find on UK beauty shelves.

These brow products are your one-way ticket to the perfect arches – because, as the saying goes, if your eyes really are the window to your soul, then your brows are surely the frame…

Better Ergonomics at the Office: What Products Have You Tried and Loved?

better ergonomics at the officeWe’ve talked before about ergonomics at work — as well as ergonomics for petites — but it’s been a while, so let’s discuss today, ladies! Have you tried to have better ergonomics at the office? What have you bought; what products did you like/not get annoyed by, and what actually made you feel better/good? (Plus, do tell: what did you get reimbursed?) What resources were the most helpful for you in your hunt? 

For my $ .02: I feel like I am forever buying, trying, and discarding various things to try to make my office better ergonomically. I’m typing this very post on a new split keyboard (recommended by Wirecutter as one of their top choices), and trying to relearn how to type because the numbers along the top are split (1-5 are on one keyboard, 6-0 on another), and other keyboard features that I use frequently are in a different place than my old keyboard. Over the years, I’ve bought a huge number of those lower back pillows designed to improve your posture — and about every ten years I seem to need to try a kneeling desk chair one more time. (I bought one last year and think I’m set for this decade… nope, still don’t like them.) Ergonomic products I have bought and liked:

  • monitor risers (I have double monitors so I have one for each; I like them!)
  • this is the split keyboard I bought a few weeks ago — I like the mechanical keys (very clicky clacky) and the squishy wrist rest, but we’ll see if I can get past the weird Ctrl button and lack of a number pad. If you’re out and about frequently, I still like my Bluetooth keyboard also so I can avoid trying to type long things on my phone (a friend was just telling me she was diagnosed with “texting thumb,” which might also explain hand pain I’ve had for a while now…)
  • I got this $ 30 lumbar pillow during my second pregnancy and must say I like it much more than all the other desk chair pillows/posture adjusters that I’ve had over the years (check out our recentish post on how to improve your posture, as well – lots of great suggestions from readers in the comments)
  • I feel guilty saying it’s an “ergonomic” pick but it was recommended by Wirecutter as their “budget” pick — I have the Ikea Markus chair for my main desk chair. It’s ugly as sin but for $ 200 I’ll take it.
  • Over the years I’ve also had apps installed on my computer to reduce eye strain, including one years ago that reminded me to blink regularly (I can’t find it now, but here’s a more recent article from Lifehack with free apps to help you with eye strain)
  • I don’t regularly have problems with carpal tunnel syndrome, but during my first pregnancy I did for some reason — I remember loving the arm brace from my local drugstore and thinking it really helped the pain (I slept in it, I think, instead of using it during the day)…
  • I need to get a nice big crate or banker’s box to put under my desk — I’ve tried and discarded a few nicer “stands” and stools over the years and just like the basic banker’s box!

How about you, readers? What products have you tried seeking better ergonomics at the office? What are your biggest complaints (wrist? neck? back? eyes? other?)

Small Business Owners Plan to Hire More and Add New Products in 2018

Business Practices

Some 90% of small businesses intend to hire one to two people in 2018, a new survey shows.

Implementing a new marketing strategy among plans for next year

 

Simultaneously, 37.6% of small business owners are contemplating offering a new product or service, and 35.7% aim to apply a new marketing strategy. About 19% plan to partner with another small business.

 

Business Practices (Image: iStock.com/kali9)

 

The findings are based on a survey released by Microsoft Store and done by SurveyMonkey. Some 1,300 U.S. small-business owners with one and 200 employees were surveyed. The analysis pinpoints trends and gauges what challenges and opportunities the owners see in the oncoming year.

About half of the owners identified their biggest challenge as staying ahead of rapid changes in technology in 2018. Further, 23% reported budget constraints were a big concern in maintaining and growing their ventures. For brand new small businesses, budgeting was their top challenge, something expected for businesses opened less than a year.

Other findings from the survey:

  • Eighty percent of respondents say they now maintain enough freedom and flexibility to support their work-life balance. That finding came despite the challenge to keep pace with digital innovation that companies face today.

 

  • Those surveyed maintain a high level of mobility, working off-site and in multiple locations instead of at a fixed venue. The younger the business (less than one year old), the more likely it is to have employees who work mainly with mobile devices. As companies get larger, mobile use gives way to other devices and digital options for how work gets done.

 

  • In navigating the demands of both budget and technological readiness, over 30% of the respondents report they are likely to turn to familiar sources (a family or close friend) for technical guidance or help with computers, email or software.

 

  • In terms of cybersecurity threats, 50% reported they are not concerned about a data breach, while 25% are doing anything to protect themselves.

 

  • Twenty-six percent of respondents stated they have a formal relationship with a support or service establishment, small businesses said comfortable, human interaction was key in how they sought help.

You’ll love these safe, gentle beauty products made by little hands

posted in Life

It’s hard to scroll through the darling boutiques on Instagram without getting shopping on the brain. Usually I can resist the cute boho clothes, the sleek furniture pieces, the baby rompers. But when it comes to bath and body products? Wellll, I need soap anyway…

And when the products are all-natural, high-quality goods made by a mom and her two smart kidpreneurs, forget it. There’s no sense resisting. Just take my money. Please.

That’s exactly the case with hunnybunny, which is both a brick-and-mortar boutique in Washington D.C. and an online store. Here’s the best part: The purveyors are Nya Byers, age 8, and 3-year-old Zuri, who make hunnybunny products — homemade soaps, body bars, face masks, scrubs, bath fizzies, shampoo bars, deodorant, and more — with their mom, Leigh Byers.

A person (the head is cropped out of the image) holds a tray of hunnybunny products, like round soaps and lotion bars that are shaped like stars

In addition to being all-natural, these artisan products come in therapeutic blends and unique scents — cherry almond swirl bars, lemon poppyseed soap, chamomile lemongrass shampoo — and they look charming enough to give as gifts.

Inspiration for the store came when Zuri was born.

“She had very sensitive, dry, itchy skin when she was a baby,” Leigh says. “So we started taking a look at the ingredients we were putting on her, and we were alarmed by that.”

Because skin and hair products are absorbed by the body, they wanted to use ingredients that actually feed and nourish the skin.

Two small girls, mixing bath products in the Hunnybunny shop

A lot of trial, error, and mixing bowls later, the first hunnybunny product was born – a soothing sunflower and calendula body bar.

“We messed it up terribly the first few times, but we knew when we got it right,” Leigh says.

Now all hunnybunny products must pass the “owner’s challenge” — that is, Leigh ensures that everything is safe and gentle enough to be used by the entire family.

“My babies use everything,” Leigh says. “That’s the real test.”

These Booster Serums Will Supercharge Your Skin Care Products

If you’re familiar with double cleansing, bubble masks and cushion compacts, then you’re already aware of the many amazing Korean beauty products that have infiltrated the industry over the past few years. The latest K-beauty category everyone’s buzzing about is booster serums, a skin care wunderkind that many Western brands are now also incorporating into their product lines.

What are booster serums?

Booster serums are lightweight liquids that contain performance ingredients in high concentration. You can mix them with other skin care products, like moisturizer or sunscreen, or use them on their own before following up with the rest of your regimen. Think of booster serums as the ingredient that supercharges the products you already use.

Boosters are packaged in small volume bottles due to the fact that they’re concentrated, and because you only need one or two drops, the bottle can last a long time. Light in texture and watery, they are created to target different concerns, like increase hydration, brighten, tone, reduce wrinkles or soothe irritated skin. The goal of boosters is to prime and stabilize the skin’s barrier, allowing your other products to work more effectively and give us the healthy glow we all want.

How to use booster serums

You can opt to use boosters either on their own or mixed with another product. If you choose to use them on their own, work 1-3 drops (or more, per manufacturer’s instructions) into cleansed (and, if you wish, toned) face. Follow up with serum and moisturizer.

Another way is to mix 1-3 drops of booster with a moisturizer in the palm of your hand and apply the mixture after cleansing. You will notice that you will not need nearly as much moisturizer as you did prior to using a booster.

The beauty of booster serums is that they can improve the benefits of your creams or replace your usual toner or serum. If you are curious about giving this type of product a try, click through the slideshow above to discover some of the best booster serums available.

These 17 baby products are rock-bottom cheap. But they have everything you need.



1. Munchkin White Hot Inflatable Duck Tub:
It’s soft-and-squishy inflatable, so your baby can thrash around without hurting himself.

2. Safety 1st Smooth Ride Travel System: Travel systems can easily cost hundreds, even thousands, of dollars, which is why this bargain-priced set is such a happy surprise.
