The Most Popular Beauty Trends of 2018

Trends are ever so fleeting, which is why when one proves to be buzz-worthy, it deserves a proper nod. From an innovative beauty tool to the ingredient that took the beauty world by storm, we’re taking a look back at the most popular beauty trends of 2018. I’ve posted some of these items on my Youtube channel. ByJenniferlynn

Argan oil
While hair health has always been at the top of everyone’s beauty to-do list, treatment masks (more specifically, masks with argan oil), got some serious limelight this past year. If you haven’t incorporated the ingredient into your hair care routine yet, try the Coco & Eve hair mask. It features coconut oil & fig Shea butter, argan oil, linseed to rejuvenate hair that has been damaged by heat, chemical, or coloring treatments.

Jade rolling
You’ve probably seen your favorite beauty influencer rave about jade rollers by now. Jade rollers that are made of 100 percent real jade, like the MANGZ Jade Roller Massager, help improve skin elasticity and reduce signs of fine lines and wrinkles.

Rose-toned eyeshadows
Whether you enjoy a smokey eye or minimal makeup, one color every beauty junkie rocked on their eyes was pink. Our go-to? The Anastasia Norvina Palette because it features an eclectic mix of rose, gold, shimmer, and matte shades to create endless looks.

“My lips but better” shade
Continuing from last year’s “no makeup” look trend, this year was all about rocking a pinky nude color on your lips (aka the “my lips but better” shade). We always keep a tube of the Huda beauty Trendsetter lip pencil and Huda beauty liquid matte shade bombshell delivers the perfect amount of color, extreme moisture, soft texture, and creamy wear to keep winter dryness in check.

Strobing (or just highlighting in general) was huge this past year. A highlighting balm like the Stila stay all day 10-in-1 HD illuminating beauty balm it is a fallout and fuss-free alternative to powder highlighters. Plus, you don’t need any additional makeup tools to apply the gorgeous pearlescent shade.

Dead Sea mud
There’s no denying that Dead Sea mud made a name for itself in the beauty world in 2018. From nourishing body creams like the Soap & Glory  to hydrating masks like the Unmasque Beauty peel-off Mask, you can find Dead Sea mud in a lot of fan-favorite beauty products.

The detoxifying properties of charcoal helped the ingredient skyrocket into the spotlight. You could find it in all kinds of beauty products including toothpaste, cleansers, shampoo, and even eye masks like the MASQUE BAR LUMINIZING CHARCOAL PEEL-OFF MASK

What You Should Actually Eat Before and After a Workout

We’re a few months into the year, and it’s time to kick those New Year’s resolutions up a notch (or you know, restart it). They say abs are made in the kitchen, but what does that actually mean?

Whether you’re working out to slim, bulk, tone, or just stay healthy, I’m sharing my best tips on what to eat both before and after your workouts.

What does the body need before a workout?
As expected, needs tend to vary based on the type, time, and intensity of a workout. I will explain that timing is everything in pre-workout eating choices. Two to four hours before, I encourage eating a small meal that won’t weigh too heavy on the stomach or throw off your digestion. If you’re pressed for time and only have 30 to 60 minutes before your workout, I will say, “look for snacks that contain carbohydrates and have less than four grams of fat, 10 grams of protein, and five grams of fiber.”

Also, overnight oats, smoothies heavy in fruit, and chia pudding can be great starters before a workout. Foods closer to the workout, “Things like a banana, white mini bagel, one ounce of pretzels, fruit leather (dried fruit), eight ounces of a sports drink, a jam sandwich on white bread, or sports gummies work great.” Rule of thumb: complex carbs early and simpler carbs when you’re in a pinch.

What does the body need after a workout?
To repair the body after putting in work, protein and carbohydrates are both crucial, remember, “post-workout snacks are meant to replenish your body and initiate muscle growth, and therefore should be eaten within one to two hours after the completion of a workout.” Though sweating can stir up some serious munchies, I encourage keeping portion sizes in control and, of course, drinking lots of water.

Post-workout snack ideas
Time is of the essence when that post-gym hunger hits. For quick and effective snacks, I recommend apples with nut butter or whole-grain crackers with hummus to hit a solid macro ratio. If you have a bit more time, I recommend a protein smoothie. Some recipes consists of “eight to 10 ounces of liquid of your choice, 15 to 20 grams of your favorite protein powder, one tablespoon of nut butter, and a pinch of cinnamon.”

“A grain bowl made with quinoa, veggies, and chicken is a great option. You can also try two street tacos with black beans, veggies, and cheese paired with a piece of fruit and some chocolate milk.” I also think that adding chocolate milk can help replenish electrolytes, carbs, and protein after a workout.

As always, consult your doctor or nutritionist before trying supplements or switching up your diet.
