If you follow me on Instagram, you saw me walking around Miami recently bundled up in a down jacket and scarf. It was in the 50s in Miami, and that is pretty unusual. That day reminded me of the cold winters we had in Lithuania--the kind of cold that many of you are probably experiencing across the county.

How does an aesthetician from Lithuania start a beauty company in Miami? Believe me, it was initially a scary idea--but I thrive on challenge. I have ALWAYS dreamed of coming to the US, and when I arrived here, I found all the opportunity and options I had envisioned. Because of my experience in the beauty industry I decided to focus on an area where my passions lie.

Here I explain three popular ingredients that we often see featured or listed in our skin care, and how we've used them here at Gin Amber Beauty.

Gratitude, Holiday Coping, Stress Relievers -

We want to enjoy the holidays, to savor all the joy, yet there are so many pressures: Pressure to live up to expectations, to please family, and to keep our skin and bodies healthy despite lack of sleep, traffic, and all the rich, delicious, sugary and processed foods we are faced with at holiday events, or in the office.

HOW DO WE RELIEVE STRESS AND REMEMBER TO BE PRESENT IN THE BEAUTIFUL MOMENTS THAT THE HOLIDAYS BRING?
