It doesn't matter if your schedule is jam-packed with parties, your holiday cards pack pictures, or you're expecting a visit from a family member. This season, every woman has a reason to look her best.
I remember hating my face and hating my skin and looking at all the girls around me in middle school and on TV and in ads and feeling like I was a monstrosity in comparison. I think makeup can be empowering, but acknowledging that it isn't natural is important.
Statistics aside, the holidays can be a great time to practice self-control around the buffet and get creative about sneaking workouts in amongst all the craziness. It can also be an opportune time to ask your loved ones to give you gifts that encourage a healthy lifestyle.
Last week I pulled my head out of my ass, got the top of it cut and colored, and the front of it painted by makeup artist Stacy McClure. If I'm going to be hamming it up in holiday Facebook photos, I don't want to look like a turkey.
