Being exposed under the sun for a prolonged time can accelerate some common signs of skin aging like fine lines, wrinkles, age spots, and sagging skin. It's always important to update our skincare regimen according to season. The scorching heat, pollution, plus the humidity will wipe off your skin's natural glow!

Using natural skin care product is also favorable especially those that have sensitive skin!

3. Use a Refreshing Toner

Since it's going to be hot, a soothing and refreshing toner is a must have! Aside from providing additional cleansing, toners help in firming up pores after cleansing and after being exposed from heat and harmful UV rays, a soothing toner will help calm and cool your skin down. Here's an additional tip: Keep a bottle in the cooler for an all-over pick-me-up on a hot day!

We added summer fragrance on this skin care list because we believe that smell is such a powerful evocator of memory. So when you smell a certain scent, you will remember a specific memory. Plus we just love being extra romantic!

After all the skin care products you slathered on your body and face, take the extra step by using accessories that will protect your precious skin! Get that wide-brimmed hat, big sunnies, and a cute, light cover up!

Be healthy inside and out! If you eat good food it will show on your skin. So it's important to eat something that will keep you healthy all over! Load up on vitamin E to have more natural antioxidants. Don't just really on what you put on our skin, but also eat something that will help the natural chemicals in your body keep your skin healthy.

12. Stay Hydrated

All these summer talks got us thirsty! Speaking of, don't forget to load up on water and stay hydrated. If you're going out, don't forget to bring a bottle filled with cold water! The water will help optimize blood pressure, regulate body temperature, and moving waste out of the body.

Budget Witch Tips: 12 Ways to Practice Your Craft on a Budget

Just because you’re a witch doesn’t mean your craft has to cost a fortune. In fact, it should never cost a fortune unless you want it to. While witchcraft is different for everyone, practicing as a witch is often about finding magic in simple things around you and creating something beautiful from them. Social media has played a huge part in the expensive expectation for those first coming into witchcraft in this day and age. From large and extravagant altar setups to enormous luxury crystals, many people are under the impression that you have to have dozens of crystals, candles, and tarot decks in order to truly practice, but that’s not true. Don’t get us wrong, while these tools can be fun and inspiring to add to your collection and can help you to enhance the energy in your craft; they do not supply the magic––you do. The magic is within you, dear witch, and you put magic into everything you use, whether it’s cheap or expensive items, and we’re here to show you that.

May 2022 Monthly Horoscope: 12 Sign Overview

April 28, 2022

As we move out of the inspiring and energetic energies of April, we move into the month of May with flying colors, welcoming new changes, transformations, and chances for renewal. To start, we will be kicking off the month in the balanced and assured sign of the Taurus. Often considered to be the mother of the Zodiac due to their kind, nurturing, and wise nature, the Taurus craves balance in all that they do. They are hardworking, know the importance of creating a good routine, and always approach their goals with a slow but steady pace. For that reason, the signs may also begin to bring these energies into their life this month. From creating a routine for yourself, focusing on small steps for your goals, or even just picking up the pace towards working towards your dreams, this month is all about gaining stability and finding what new direction you may wish to go with it. 


Aside from this, May also marks the official start of the eclipse season, which is sure to bring a plethora of new energies into our lives. With so many energetic shake-ups at this time, the signs could find themselves feeling more drained and disoriented. However, all of the changes are likely to help us align with our destined path later on. Aside from this, the planets will also be quite active this month, with Jupiter, Mars, and Mercury as the biggest influences. Jupiter will be lingering in the sign of the Pisces for the beginning of the month, making this an opportunistic time for the signs to seize new opportunities and take a chance. After this, Jupiter will then make its way through the sign of the Aries, pushing hard work, confidence, and a new dynamic in your life as the signs likely begin to feel a little more open-minded in trying new things. We will then welcome our next Mercury retrograde on May 10 in the sign of the Gemini, which is bound to bring some energetic shake-ups in our social lives as well as our communication skills. Lastly, we will then end the month in the sign of the energetic Gemini, pushing our social interactions, lust for adventure, and need for expansion to the extreme.
