How To Plan The Perfect Ladies Shopping Day Out

When it comes to getting your shopping on, why not get some of your friends together and make a day of it. Not only do you have an instant fashion guru with you, granted your friends have some sense of style, but you’ll be able to do some other fun stuff and even catch up on your lives with a little girl talk.

Plan out your store itinerary, fill in a spot for lunch or dinner in there, plan a visit to the spa immediately following all that shopping, for a foot rub and some relaxation, and then maybe go have some cocktails and talk about the things that were a little too racy for the mall stores. Need a little more detail than that, and want to make sure each lady is happy on the excursion? Keep reading.

Who Wants/Needs To Go Where

Map it all out before you go. Make sure you know what type of shopping each lady needs to get done, this way each of you at least accomplishes one productive thing on your shopping outing. Depending on the needs, a trip to the mall could be the most convenient, offering up the most types of stores in the smallest area.

Any Special Dietary Needs

Before picking a place to dine, whether it’s lunch or dinner (depending on what time your shopping trip is planned for) make sure to find out what types of foods your group can and will eat. With so many food allergies and illnesses like Celiac Disease it’s important to consider each person before picking a place to dine. With severe allergies there may be a very limited option.

Spa Or Makeover?

Every woman knows that shopping can be stressful and it’s also a good workout. End your shopping fitness routine with a visit to the spa. You could get a foot massage, perfect for after all that walking, or just get a relaxing facial to help you calm down and cool off after all that shopping work.

If you’re still energized and not ready to relax, maybe it’s time for a makeover. Instead of going to a spa, you could all go to the salon and get a new hairdo or maybe try a new makeup look. It’s a perfect final for a women’s day.

Post Relaxation

However, your shopping excursion doesn’t need to end there. If you girls still have some gabbing to do you can always go out for some cocktails after your shopping trip and spa time is over. Again, consider allergies and gluten sensitivities when picking a place for libations. A little liquor can loosen you up and gives you a chance to finish any conversations that were interrupted by hair cuts and dressing rooms!

The Benefits of Retinol Cream

It’s no secret that vitamin A is great for the skin. However, too few people know think the only way to get vitamin A is to consume it in a supplement or pill form. The fact is, you can enjoy all the benefits that vitamin A provides by regularly using retinol face cream. Retinol is a form of vitamin E and is a common ingredient in a wide array of skin care products. Regular use of retinol cream can improve the overall health and appearance of your skin.

Acne Treatment

According to the Mayo Clinic, apply retinol topically can effectively treat acne and lead to clearer skin. Retinol exfoliates the skin and unplugs the follicles, while eliminating bacteria that is known to cause pimples.

Treats Discolorations of the Skin

Retinol have been shown to be extremely effective in evening skin tone and fading skin discolorations. Experts theorize that this may be due to retinol’s ability to exfoliate, which helps to remove the older, dark cells and give way to the lighter skin found underneath.

Reduces the Appearance of Wrinkles

Retinol has antioxidant properties, which help repair damaged skin, smooth wrinkles and fine lines and rejuvenate skin. Because of this, retinol is a common ingredient in over-the-counter treatments for aging skin.

Shrinks the Pores
The size of your pores is typically determined by generis. However, retinol and other retinoids can help shrink the pores and improve their shape. Retinol also removes the debris that stretches the pores open, so without this debris, your pores appear smaller.

Less Side Effects

Tretinoin is a prescription treatment for skin that can cause various side effects, such as scaling and burning sensation of the skin. Retinol relieves a lot of the same skin problems that tretinoin does but doesn’t carry the same side effects as its prescribed counterpart.


No cream, whether it contains retinol or not, is a good substitute for medical attention. Furthermore, you should always consult with your doctor before beginning any alternative treatment. They will be able to determine if your preferred remedy will negatively interfere with any medications you are currently taking or disorders or diseases you are suffering with. Furthermore, if you have never used a product containing retinol before, apply a small amount of the cream or lotion to the back of your hand and wait 24 hours. If there is no adverse side effects, continue using as directed. Discontinue use, however, if the area becomes inflamed, irritated or a rash develops.
