Keeping the body properly hydrated is essential for making sure that everything's running as it should.
Imaxtree I'm the first to admit that my daily makeup routine tends to veer toward the "no-makeup" makeup look, which consists of minimal foundation and blush and certainly no eyeliner or lipstick. Blame it on laziness or poor time management from hitting that snooze button, but my daily routine is certainly not head-turning.
