Henné Organics is known for its luxe take on lip care. Its Rose Diamonds lip exfoliator, made with blush petal pink crystals, is the perfect solution to rough lips.

In the video above, In The Know demonstrates how to use the sweet scrub. Apply the Rose Diamonds scrub to damp lips and softly massage it in in a circular motion for one to two minutes. (It’s made of natural sugar and oils so don’t be afraid to do a little taste test!) After a few minutes of massaging, wipe or rinse the remaining scrub off.

Henné Organics recommends applying a layer of lip balm afterward to ensure you lock in the moisture and keep your kisses super smooth.

Though it might seem flippant to some to suggest that a beauty routine could actually play a role in self-care, women have long anecdotally documented how sticking to a regimen has improved their anxiety while providing personal time to reflect. A 2017 survey of 1,295 women in the U.K. cited by Marie Claire found that 15 percent of participants used skincare to relax.

A recent study published in the Journal of Investigative Dermatology by Katie Rodan M.D. and Kathy Fields M.D. also found that a simple three-step skincare routine actually reduced cortisol levels, AKA the stress hormone. But even prior to the study, many healthcare professionals touted the benefits of a beauty routine.

“A skincare regimen can be very calming and the physical act of a facial massage can help lower your heart rate,” Amy Wechser, M.D., who is double-board-certified in dermatology and psychiatry, told Marie Claire

“When someone is depressed or anxious, a routine provides a sense that they have control over their skin, their body and consequently part of their life.”

    Charlotte Woodward is a woman with Down syndrome. She also works as a community outreach associate for the National Down Syndrome Society (NDSS). So, as she explained to In The Know, the issues she discussed in her now-viral video were “very personal”. The clip details the institutional discrimination that people with Down syndrome face throughout their lives. “Things about having Down syndrome that don’t make sense,” Woodward says at the start of the clip. She then goes on to give several examples. The first of those: being paid sub-minimum wage. Another issue? Penalties for getting married . As Woodward points out in the clip, people with Down syndrome can lose eligibility for government benefits (like Medicaid) if they have a spouse. Woodward’s video, which now has more than 2.8 million views, spawned hundreds of comments reacting to the “appalling” info. “I didn’t know any of this. Thank you for spreading awareness,” one commenter wrote. Woodward, meanwhile, said the experience of going viral has been “mind-blowing”

  • Evil genius combines the most hated parts of the holidays into a new candy

    Brach’s clearly hasn’t gotten the memo that its candy corn starts an annual war between fans and people who don’t know what good candy is. because now it’s combined it with another polarizing holiday staple: the Thanksgiving turkey dinner. in case you are regularly craving a turkey feast and can’t wait until November, now’s your chance to treat yourself to a miniature version of the meal. a real-life version of Willy Wonka’s three-course chewing gum (minus the turning into a blueberry part). Turkey dinner-flavored candy corn is available to buy and comes in the following flavors: . Green beans, stuffing, roasted turkey, sweet potato pie, ginger-glazed carrots and cranberry sauce. The reviews overall seem pretty positive (except for the turkey). Other people on Twitter were not as impressed or willing to give it a shot. perhaps Brach’s was just thinking ahead for people who don’t want to learn how to cook a turkey
