Nude-Faced Women Are Definitely Amazing Lovers.

Nude-Faced Women Are Definitely Amazing Lovers.

It’s been a few months since former supermodel Tyra Banks posed for People Magazine “nude-faced.” She was praised for being brave enough to smile on the cover of a magazine without makeup on her face. She is very brave. This post is a tribute to her and to women like my wife who know how to light up a room with or without makeup. I respect these women because…

1. They’re confident.

Confidence is sexy, and it persuades people. Rock a day with no makeup like it’s the new thing, and don’t be surprised if others follow along.

2. They create more “wow” moments.

We all love a good transformation scene, when a lovable girl gets dressed up and captivates an entire room. We saw it in The Princess Diaries, A Walk to Remember, A Cinderella Story, and other classic movies. These breathtaking moments are made possible by girls who don’t go to the grocery store dressed like they’re going to prom.

3. They’re more kissable.

If you’re looking for five words to kill romance, try, “Don’t mess up my makeup.” On a similar note, my wife is a big fan of lipstick, which looks great on her but not so much on me. Sometimes, this spoils opportunities for a romantic kiss.

4. They’re not afraid to sweat.

I love it when girls join in a game of volleyball or soccer — the whole experience is way more fun. Similar to the kissing argument, it makes me sad to see a girl opt-out because she’s afraid to sweat off her makeup. Go for it!

5. They don’t monopolize the bathroom.

When we first got married, my wife and I lived in a tiny apartment with one, single-sink bathroom. Getting ready was a lot simpler on days when she didn’t wear makeup.

6. They put less pressure on my appearance.

Hey, don’t judge me! It’s nice to have a day when I can dress casually and relax without feeling like a total slob.

7. They’re not afraid to be authentic.

Attraction is certainly important in a relationship, and we all have occasions when we want to put our best foot forward. But equally crucial to a healthy relationship is intimacy, feeling like you truly know a person. I find it refreshing to share life with a woman who’s comfortable in her own skin.

8. They save money.

I didn’t put this one first because I didn’t want to sound naggy, but I’m perpetually shocked by how expensive makeup is. If you can make mascara last longer by giving it the day off now and then, you won’t hear me complaining.

9. They’re free to be more spontaneous.

When a fun opportunity presents itself like last-minute concert tickets, sometimes you have to hop in the car and go for it. Memories like these never happen if you refuse to leave the house without an hour to get ready.

10. They know the value of inner beauty.

Not all beauty is obvious. Many precious forms are hidden in qualities such as kindness, bravery, and perseverance. It’s hard not to be attracted to a girl who knows there’s more to beauty than a moment in a mirror.

11. They help others feel accepted.

Life can feel like one big competition as people constantly vie for power and popularity. It’s so relaxing and inspiring to be around someone who’s brave enough to drop the act and just be herself.

12. They have more inner peace.

Some people run themselves ragged trying to impress others through their appearance, and according to Australian Instagram star Essena O’Neil, it can be exhausting. “Without realizing, I’ve spent majority of my teenage life being addicted to social media, social approval, social status and my physical appearance…I was surrounded by all this wealth and all this fame and all this power and yet they were all miserable, and I had never been more miserable.” Props to the girls who reject the game and save some energy for more meaningful pursuits.

13. They demonstrate maturity.

Life’s not perfect. Some days you’ll feel like you’re on top of the world, and others you’ll just want to crawl back into bed. When life throws a curve ball, it’s the people with the right priorities who have the chance to shine. I deeply respect women who can conquer a day without makeup and who practice, as Michele Cushatt beautifully puts it, “making peace with an imperfect life.”

11 Hidden Benefits of Using Oil Diffusers

11 Hidden Benefits of Using Oil Diffusers

Affordable, relaxing, and healthy, oil diffusers are gaining popularity with people everywhere due to their extensive benefits. Oil diffusers work through the simple process of oil diffusion, which uses heat to turn oil into a vapor that is then spread around a living space. Diffused oil can have several relaxation and health-related benefits, including safe scent-dispersion, mosquito and mold defense, stress relief, and more!

Read on for 11 hidden benefits of using oil diffusers.

1. Safe Scents That Make Sense

Unlike candles or air fresheners, oil diffusers release cleansing molecules into your air that work to purify it, not overload it with unhealthy chemicals. Electronic diffusers also do not pose the fire risk that candles do. Plus, they contain the added feature of interchangeability, which means you change oil types for different scents and health benefits.

2. Stress Relief

Several lab studies have confirmed that diffusing essential oils like lavender have been shown to reduce stress and help relieve anxiety in medical patients. Preliminary studies have also shown that oil diffusers can help alleviate symptoms of depression.

3. Improved Sleep

Diffused oil has relaxing properties that can help people of all ages fall asleep quicker and sleep more soundly. Electronic diffusers not only have the option to mix and match different oil blends (Try a lavender, Bulgarian rose, and Roman chamomile blend to help with insomnia), they also run at a gentle hum that helps relax an agitated mind. Many also come with an auto shut-off feature to help conserve oils once you have fallen asleep.

4. Appetite Control

Much like gum, oil diffusers can help stimulate the senses in a way that works to curb appetite. New research has shown that diffused peppermint oil can help curb appetite by inducing a satiety response within the body. Diffused peppermint oil has also been shown to increase energy.

5. Bacteria and Mold Killing

When essential oils are diffused in the air, they break down free radicals that contribute to the growth of harmful bacteria. Eucalyptus, thyme, and tea tree oils are especially good for this purpose. Diffused oil is also highly effective when it comes to combating fungal yeast threats, as the oil help makes the air inhospitable for yeasts such as mold. Pine and red thyme essential oils are best for combating mold.

6. Decongestion and Mucus Control

Ever tried Vick’s Vapo-Rub? Its decongesting powers come from active ingredients made from the eucalyptus tree. In principle, oil diffusers work the same way as Vapo-Rub, except they diffuse their decongesting vapor all around the room, not just on your chest or neck. Oil diffusers have been known to cure pneumonia in lab mice.

7. Mosquito Repellant

Nobody likes mosquitoes — but when the trade-off means using repellants full of DEET, a toxic chemical that can be especially harmful to children, mosquito control can often seem like a lose-lose. However, scientists have shown that oil diffusers can be used as a safe and highly effective mosquito repellant. Studies have shown that a diffused oil mixture containing clove essential oil and lemongrass essential oil repelled one type of Zika-carrying mosquito, the Aedes aegypti mosquito, at a rate of 100%.

8. Pain Relief

While applying oils directly to areas of your body may be the most effective way to alleviate pain, diffusing essential oils can also be an effective means of pain relief. When we inhale healthy essential oils, they enter our blood stream and can help internally relieve persistent pain from headaches, overworked muscles, and sore joints.

9. The New Anti-Viral

Research into the anti-viral effects of oil diffusion is now just gaining steam. A recent study showed that star anise essential oil was proven in medical experiments to destroy the herpes simplex virus in contained areas at a rate of 99%. Another study showed the popular DoTerra oil blend OnGuard to have highly-effective influenza-combating powers.

10. Improved Cognitive Function

Diffusing essential oils has also been shown to improve cognitive function. Many essential oils have adaptogenic qualities, which can work twofold in soothing us when we’re stressed, and giving our bodies a pick-me-up when we’re feeling down or sluggish. By working to level out an imbalanced mood, diffused oils also help us to focus. There are also several essential oils which have been shown to help balance the body’s hormones. With prolonged use, these oils can work to repair the underlying causes responsible for hindering cognitive function.

11. Money Saving

With ten clear benefits of oil diffusers already outlined, there is one more that should now be obvious: using an oil diffuser will help you to save money. As an anti-viral, bug repelling, and stress-relief solution rolled into one safe product, an oil diffuser used with the proper oils will save you money on products you might otherwise be buying to help cure those pesky headaches or get your kids to fall asleep on time. If you’re wondering just how affordable oil diffusers can be, check the buyer’s guide to the best oil diffusers — you’ll be sure to find one that fits your budget!
