Hot temperatures imgres.jpg on-the-go kids can make it tough to stay stylish in summer. That's why you'll love these ten fast, mom-focused beauty and hair tips, which make looking good a breeze! Go ahead, customize them to enhance your personal assets and natural beauty. Then sit back and enjoy a beautiful summer.
Summer weather
 a lot of challenges when it comes to keeping your makeup looking beautiful all day long. Melting foundation, disappearing eye shadow and running mascara are just some of the most common issues experienced. But the right products and a few adjustments to your routine can help you avoid these problems.

1. Try a slick ponytail to accentuate your facial features. A deep-side part looks fresh and modern (and is easy to do when the kids are tugging at your arm!). To prevent flyaways, spritz with hairspray. Don't forget an easy-to-blend foundation with SPF to even out your skin tone and keep you looking polished. 
2. Get a glow on by exfoliating. Keep a washcloth or buff pad at-the-ready for everyday use. If you don't have an exfoliant, make your own by moistening ½ cup of sugar with olive or sunflower oil. Use small circles to slough away dead cells and reveal new layers of skin. Or, try a mask of four to six aspirin crushed into a paste with water. Let dry, rinse and reveal the new you! 
3. Beat the heat with a French braid that keeps your hair off your neck. Make the braid, leaving your bangs free. For a fun playground-to-party look, pull out small to medium chunky pieces from the braid and spray them with gel or hairspray and scrunch. Sweep bangs to the side and slip on a thin headband or tie on a piece of ribbon.
4. Protect your skin with a sunscreen with minimum 15 SPF. If you burn using SPF 15, go higher. Look for a UVA and UVB blocking ingredient such as Zinc oxide, Titanium dioxide, Parsol 1789 or Helioplex. Apply a shot-glass worth of sunscreen 15 to 30 minutes before going out, being sure to cover your chest, hands and ears. Don't forget a lip balm with SPF, too!
5. The messy bun that ruled the fashion runways this season is perfect for on-the-go moms! To get the look, apply a shine serum to towel-dried hair. Work it through to enhance natural texture. Next, use your fingers to rake hair back at mid-height or at the nape of the neck. Twist into a knot and secure with bobby pins. Don't worry about making it too neat – random ends sticking out are what make this style look relaxed.
6. Stay on-trend with pink lipstick. Pick a shade that complements your skin tone. Lighter pinks work on women with pink or cool undertones, and warmer pinks look best on skin with yellow undertones. A creamy lipstick formula will last longer than gloss.
7. For a mom manicure on the fly, remove chipped polish and moisturize your hands, rubbing olive oil on your cuticles before pushing them back. File your nails short and practical. Then whip on a light polish that won't show chips as much as a dark shade.
8. Try this trendy, mom-friendly twist on a basic bun: Make two side-by-side ponytails at the back of your head. Then wrap each tail around the other's base (hiding the elastics) to create a figure-eight bun. Secure to your head with hairpins and a few spritzes of hairspray.
9. Before you polish your toenails, pamper yourself with an Epson-salt and scented oil foot soak for 10 minutes. (Read more tips in B.O.magazine while you wait!) Then remove dry skin from legs and feet with a homemade mixture of olive oil and salt or raw sugar. Rub in an upward motion for two to three minutes, then rinse, moisturize and polish!
10. For natural-looking waves, massage volumizing mousse through freshly washed hair. Weave locks into a thick braid and allow hair to dry. When dried, gently finger comb to loosen into waves. If you have to time to blow dry, apply gel and then slowly blow dry while scrunching hair.

28 Black Energy Drink By (Todays Premium Drinks Nig.)


28Black Energy drink PARTNERS with B.O.Magazine
Distributors needed NATIONWIDE!
Acai fruit seems to be everywhere. The media praises it for its antioxidant capability, abilitto improve circulation and fight cancer, and its energy boosting properties.

Acai berry products have become quite popular as of late, so it was only a matter of time before an energy drink was released with an Acai extracts
28BLACK which has become popular allover Europe (Calidris 28) and now in Nigeria. We got samples of 28Black drinks for review with the B.O.Magazine Team. The two are essentially the same, with the exception that White has no sugar, But Our reviews are based on the 28BLACK alone.
28 Energy really shines in the taste department. This isn’t  our first run-in with Acai based products, so we could vouch for how close it tastes to the actual fruit. However, I can tell you the drinks tastes great. The flavor is much like a sweet grape flavor, with a pleasant Guava like after taste with a tingly finish to it. In addition to that, the 28 Energy Drinks taste substantially the same.I think that is the hallmark of a company dedicated to its health driven fans.
Both 28Black & 28White contains '0'CAFFEINE, 100% of your daily value of Vitamin C 60mg and B5 ,B6,B12-5MG each, Niacin-20mg, along with 3 mg of Coenzyme Q10. Interestingly enough, the Black drink has more B Vitamins than other energy drinks, but it is a negligible difference .28black Energy  also has 35 grams of sugar and its main energy source is its Acai berry extracts ‘IT CONTAINS NO TAURINE ‘ like most other energy drinks ,the 28White has 0 sugar.

*Not suitable for persons suffering from diabetes,children or nursing mothers.

I was skeptical when I read that each 28 Energy Drink has 0mg of Caffeine. I drank one of these in the morning and it made me slightly more awake and focused. When I had the Black, I crashed pretty hard. 28 Energy gave me enough of a lift to get through a lengthy and boring class and I was still able to sleep soundly that night.
Made in Germany
''I AM 28''

28 Black Energy is a strong newcomer in the market. These drinks are a good alternative for people who want to get a buzz from a can of Red Bull in the wrong way, but are looking for an alternative and improvement in the taste department too.With Black you get a healthier Buzz with Style & class with an absolutely 100% Natural taste.

The Miracle of Vinegar for Hair ,Scalp, Skin, Hair & Face (DIY)

Many common kitchen ingredients are just as useful in the bathroom. In fact some experts turns to vinegar for many DIY hair and skin care remedies. But if you don't have the time or money to get expensive beauty brands just pick up a bottle of apple cider vinegar at your local grocery store. And to get The B.O.Magazine Beauty tips on how to use vinegar from head to toe, just keep reading.

  • For smooth skin: "Because vinegar is acidic, it closes the pores of your skin and makes it extremely shiny,That's why we recommends mixing vinegar with your body cream. It also gives a nice smell without having perfume,.

  • For shiny, brass-free hair: "Most of the time women don't rinse shampoos and conditioners very well, so hair is [left] heavy and not shiny enough. To avoid this, we suggest applying five drops of vinegar (mixed with cold water in a bowl) into the hair and scalp after shampooing, conditioning, and rinsing. But instead of washing it out, leave it in to degunk and debrass your strands.
  • For a healing bath: Mix a little apple cider vinegar in your bath water to let the anti-inflammatory properties soothe your itchy skin.

  • For a clean scalp: Apple cider vinegar has natural antifungal properties and therefore can help eliminate a flaky scalp caused by dandruff. Create your own cleansing shampoo by mixing a solution that's half water, half apple cider vinegar into a spray bottle and apply.

  • For a clear face: Vinegar balances the pH of the skin and acts as an astringent on oily complexions. Stir up a half-and-half mixture to use as a toner before your daily moisturizing routine
