Tip #21


Loafers look best without socks. No show socks will help you keep the look and preserve the shoes. 

Tip #21 Exposed:

Banana Republic amongst many other designers make socks that do not show. I know a lot of people don’t like the feel of wearing shoes without socks, so here is the solution. You can look and feel great with the no show socks. Another positive is that they help preserve the shoes AND keep them from smelling horribly. I have a few pairs and they are great. I personally like the very low cut ones just so I can be sure no part of the sock can be seen. After all that is the purpose of the no show socks, so make sure they don’t show!

Tip #20


The best face wash is plain old cold water. 

Tip #20 Exposed:

I am sure I am not alone when I say that I have tried tens of different types of face washes.  Motorizing, acne clearing, exfoliating, amongst many other types. From extremely pricey ones to just plain old Rite Aid brand, I’ve tried them all. Recently, and I wish I would have figured this out a long time ago, I dropped all facial product completely. The only thing that hits my face is cold water, and obviously warmer water when I shower but I make sure to rinse with cold water afterwards. Cold water closes your pores and prevents break outs. This works for my skin. Although, if you have dry skin or very oily skin maybe adding a simple moisturizer or gentle skin cleanser would work best. The point is go easy on your face. Using five different products on your face every time you shower is just not the way to go. Simply keep it simple.
