How Beauty Consultants Relax

As a member of the beauty consultant industry, you work hard. You’re out there getting new recruits, sales, and leads. On top of that, you’re managing your unit and training new members. Plus, you can’t forget to keep up with your inventory, receipts, bills, and more! Some days you can get stressed out and get stuck in go mode, causing you to get tense and stay up all night! Learn how to destress and unwind at the end of the day with our relaxation tips.

How To Relax After Work

When you get home, make sure that you’ve left your work at the office. Turn off your phone and ignore your emails. It’s perfectly fine to enter your do not disturb mode to unwind and focus on yourself after a long day.

If you’re in for the night then change as soon as you get home. Take off your heels and put on the slippers. Nothing helps a person relax more than their favorite pair of comfy pants. From yoga tights to sweats, wear whatever you feel best in.

A great way to destress is by working out a little. You don’t have to join a gym or go for a run. Simply walking around the block, stretching, and practicing yoga will get your blood flowing. As you gently work your muscles the tension, stress, and anxiety will be relieved. Plus, working out causes your body to produce endorphins so you’ll be in a better mood.

By getting out and walking you’ll be in nature. Seeing plants and animals, as well as breathing the fresh clean air that plants provide is a great way to relax and feel better.

However, you don’t have to get moving to relax. You can stay still and treat yourself to a nice soak in a hot shower or bath. There are a variety of bath bombs with relaxing scents like lavender and bath salts that will soothe your body and mind. There’s no harm in lighting your favorite candles in the bathroom as well.

Take some time to pamper yourself with your favorite sugar scrub or face mask. The minerals in these items will leave you feeling refreshed. Plus, the act of taking care of yourself will boost your mood.

Speaking of yourself, remember to indulge in you time. Make time for one of your favorite activities. Maybe you like to cook, maybe you like to watch reality tv, or maybe you like to read romance novels. Whatever your ‘you time’ activity is, we won’t judge. Have fun!

Sometimes when things are all business we can get a little stressed out, that’s why it’s a good idea to call or meet up with a friend for a chat. Catch up and make jokes to get your mind off work for a while. Maybe you can even talk about what’s been stressing you out to get it off your chest. While you’re with your BFF it might be a good time to unwind with a glass of wine too.

Another great way to relax is by meditating. You can take a few moments to sit still and clear your mind, or you can listen to relaxing music to lose yourself in the beat. There are also a number of guided meditation apps you can listen to.

If You Don’t Have Time...

There are times when life gets incredibly busy and you may not have the time to stop and relax. Luckily we have techniques that relieve stress fast.

Oftentimes people carry a lot of stress and tension in their jaw. To relive it try stretching your mouth and moving your jaw back and forth. You can also chew some gum to loosen your jaw up.
Get some tea. In the office, at home, or through a cafe drive trough, grab a soothing cup of hot tea to relax. Chamomile, lavender, peppermint, and lemon teas all will help you calm down a little so you can focus.

Go to the bathroom for a few minutes to clear your mind. Touch up your makeup or check out what’s happening on social media. Even by only taking a few moments for yourself can really turn your day around.

Think positive. Focus on what’s currently going well and recent achievements. This way you’ll be able to turn your stressful mood into a positive one and reinforce your confidence. Don’t worry girl, you got this.

Listen to something your enjoy. Put on your favorite playlist or podcast and turn the rest of the world out for a while. This way your mind will get taken off of what’s stressing you out so you can get in your productive zone.

Work Hard, Relax Hard!

Keep it up! You’re doing great. Even though your beauty consultant career is going great, there can still be long days that leave you feeling stressed and frazzled. Remember to take a break so you can relax and recharge.

UnitWise Simplifies Online Payments

As a member of the beauty consulting industry you probably already know that an important part of your business is getting paid. You need a way for people to pay for your items when taking orders at parties or over the phone, especially nowadays when people don’t carry cash or their checkbooks anymore.

Instead of worrying about how you’re going to get paid let UnitWise handle it for you with their online payment features.


UnitWise is the best personal assistant you could ever ask for. It’s the business management solution that's specifically designed for NSDs, directors, and independent beauty consultants to help them save time while managing their business. UnitWise includes business management features for online billing, accountant, marketing emails, unit reports, and more!

Getting Paid With UnitWise

UnitWise uses ProPay to process transactions. ProPay is a credit card processing service that has been proudly serving those in direct-selling business positions, like beauty consultants, for years!

Not only is ProPay trusted, but it’s secure. It uses the latest technology for security and adheres to strict rules to keep their customer’s and customer’s client's information safe.

That’s why UnitWise is able to allow users to accept payments at parties, over the phone, and more. Anytime someone wants to place an order you can use your computer or smartphone to process the transaction as long as you have a wifi connection.  
For example, if you make a sale at a makeup party you can hand your phone to your customer for them to type in their card information. Then their card information will become invisible so no one else will have access to their information.

If your client doesn’t want to type in their information then you can get the ProPay jack and plug it into your phone. Then customers can simply swipe their card instead of typing in their information.

When a transaction is made the receipt can be printed or emailed to your client. Every time a receipt is made then your inventory is automatically updated, so you don’t have to go in and manually adjust it later.

A receipt is made when a transaction is completed, and an invoice is made when payments are split up over time. With UnitWise you can quickly set up a customized invoice plan for your clients. You can set the payment date and amount for each payment.

You can record the details for each invoice to keep notes about the transaction. You can also elect to receive email reminders for upcoming invoice due dates, so you'll never forget about a payment.

Now you may not have time to meet up with all of your clients to collect payments in person, and that’s where the UW Payment Hub comes in handy because it allows users to log on to pay their invoices online.

All you have to do is send your clients their own login information via email, or they can create their own login information by following the UW Payment Hub link that you can send them via email. When a client pays their invoice the system will mark it as paid. It will also list that the payment was made with the UW Payment Hub for your records.

Get Paid Online!

Don’t worry about order sheets and taking down people’s payment information. You can use UnitWise to quickly make safe and secure transactions from any location. People can even log on to pay their invoices themselves!

Sign up for your free 15-day trial with UnitWise today to instantly take advantage of their time-saving business management features.

Secrets That Led To Mary Kay's Success

As a beauty consultant you have the power to set your own schedule, enjoy selling products as a hobby or full-time career, and the potential to make a wealthy living. It’s a unique career opportunity that changed the role of women in business and has helped millions of women across the world feel beautiful, successful, and most importantly, empowered.

The beauty consultant industry is huge and flourishing, all thanks to one person, Mary Kay, so what are her secrets to success? By taking a moment to learn them you could be on your way to building your own empire.

The Secrets To Mary Kay’s Success

The first thing to know about Mary Kay is that she didn’t take any crap. Nothing stood in her way. While working for a company a man she trained herself was picked for a promotion over her, and he was given a much bigger salary. Mary Kay decided that she wouldn’t stand for it, and quit. She moved on to bigger and better things, like starting her own business for example.

Mary Kay was also very persistent. She never gave up in life, even when things got rough. Even though she didn’t start her business until she was 45 she knew she could do it and continued to work until it became a worldly success.

She was one positive lady. Her most important accessory was her smile, and she shared it with everyone, everywhere she went. A young woman boarded an elevator one day and Mary Kay asked, “How is your day going” and the girl replied, “It’s going fine.” Mary Kay flashed the girl a big smile and said, “Well then make it great!.” Just by smiling more and adopting a more positive attitude you’ll be surprised by how much of a major difference a positive attitude can make in your life.

Mary Kay got out of her comfort zone. Sticking to her old job would have been easy. Starting a new
business, talking to people, leading people, and more takes guys. She didn’t settle for the day to day routine, instead, she went for greatness.

Mistakes were alright. Mary Kay didn’t criticize people for making their mistakes. Instead, mistakes were supposed to be a learning experience. To make it in business you have to at least try. You can’t make a mistake unless you try, and if you do make a mistake you can learn from it and try again.

Another thing to know about Mary Kay is that she was very respectful. She believed in treating everyone like you would like to be treated. It didn’t matter if you were a stranger or a friend, the janitor or the CEO. She treated everyone with the same respect.

Also, she was encouraging. She didn’t understand that women didn’t take advantage of their god given potential. One of her goals was to help others achieve their own, and she did that by encouraging people to reach their goals.

Mary Kay stood by her priorities. God first, family second, career third. Her faith was important, as well as her family. She loved her parents, sons, grandkids, and more, all while not letting her career get in the way. Even though she had her own religious beliefs she accepted differing opinions from others and encouraged them to stick to their priorities and beliefs as well.

Plus, she knew how to have a good time. Do you think fur coats and pink Cadillacs came from someone boring?! At Mary Kay, you work hard and you play hard with awesome prizes. You can’t forget about seminar, the party in Taxas that's almost bigger than the state itself, where beauty consultants meet from all over to learn more about the business and have a good time.

The Next Stop Is The Top

Mary Kay started by quitting her job and opening a storefront in Texas. With hard work, persistence, and a positive attitude she grew her business into a major worldwide industry. You too can achieve greatness by reaching for your dreams with the help of Mary Kay’s secrets to success.

How To Prevent Wrinkles And Aging Skin

As a beauty consultant, you want to always look on top of your game with the latest makeup trends and techniques. Along with demonstrating the newest ways to apply blush at your makeup parties you probably want to look the best you can, and doing so involves avoiding pesky wrinkles that give age away. Simply follow our anti wrinkle tips below to have flawless youthful skin.

The Anti-Wrinkle Guide

For flawless skin, you have to stop smoking. Smoking ruins the collagen in your skin, which is responsible for making your skin firm and tight. Once your collagen breaks down then your skin will sag and wrinkles will form.

Plus, pursing your lips to inhale on a cigarette can cause major wrinkle lines around your mouth. Smoking also discolors the skin, dries the skin out, breaks down the nutrients necessary for skin repair, and more.

The next step involves drinking water all day, every day. Our skin, like the rest of the organs in our body, can get dehydrated. When our skin is dehydrated it starts to look saggy and sunken. Water plumps and firms the skin to hide signs of aging.

Also, water can help cut down on acne and breakouts. Now, your body can only absorb a certain amount of water at a time, so it’s important to carry water with you and drink it all day instead of trying to chug large amounts all at once.

While adding water to your daily routine try introducing more healthy foods like vegetables and lean meats, like fish to your diet. Antioxidants which are found in fruits and veggies can help to limit the production of free radicals that damage skin cells.

Nutrients like vitamin C help to repair skin cells and promote growth, for fuller, healthier skin. Vitamin E is another great antioxidant that regulates retinol levels. Retinol boosts collagen, unclogs pores, smooths the skin, and removes discoloration.

Healthy fats like omega 3s are strong anti-inflammatories that help reduce inflammation of your skin. This will reduce redness and puffiness. They also boost collagen and help skin repair. Eating healthy will boost your skin more than you know!

While eating healthy, try to cut sugar out. Sugar can cause your skin to become inflamed, break down elastin in your skin, and damage collagen, leading to wrinkles and sagging skin. Sugar also increases sebum production. Sebum is the natural oil that your skin produces, but when too much of it is produces your cores can become clogged, leading to acne.

Watch out for the sun! Damaging UV rays not only irritate the skin by making it dry, red, and itchy, but it also damages skin cells, leading to sagging, discoloration, and wrinkles. Try wearing a hat, sleeves, and sunscreen when you’ll be outdoors for a while. Also, avoid sunscreens filled with harmful chemicals. Try an all natural, organic sunscreen that your skin will thank you for.

Avoid drying your face out. This can be achieved by using hydrating facial masks instead of clay ones that will dry your skin out. Use moisturizing cleansers that don’t have alcohol in them and double up on the moisturizer creams. Moisturizers without toxic ingredients are best. Don’t over wash your face, you don’t want to strip your skin’s natural oils away, and always remember to wash your face before bed.
In order to avoid crows feet around your eyes take care of them. Squinting can cause lines, so make sure your glasses prescription is up to date so you can read without trouble and carry your sunglasses everywhere! Wear them while you drive or during any situation where the blinding sun could make you squint.

You may want to invest in an eye cream. Eye creams are made specifically for the delicate, thinner skin around your eyes. They help moisturize the skin and improve its collagen and elasticity to prevent dark circles, bags, and wrinkles.

Be sure to make time to rest. You really do need your beauty sleep. As you sleep your skin gets repaired and increased circulation and oxygen goes to your skin, giving it a warm, youthful glow. Sleeping also helps your skin become hydrated and reduces inflammation so you can wake up refreshed.

Rock Your Skin

With a few minor changes to your routine in order to protect your skin, you’ll repair wrinkles and damage and well has prevent them. It’s easy to have a youthful glow to help you be the beauty consultant who looks the part with flawless, youthful skin and perfect makeup.

Spring 2017 Makeup Trends

Alright, ladies! It’s time to knock the snow off your boots, store your winter coat, and clean out your makeup drawer. Spring is coming in hot with longer days, warmer weather, and brighter colors. Don’t fall behind, stay up to date with the latest spring 2017 makeup trends to show off at your makeup parties!

Spring 2017 Makeup Trends

First, we have to make sure that you switch foundations. As you go from winter to spring your face will get darker, so even if you have a lot of your light colored winter foundation left, clear it out. You never want to apply a foundation that’s lighter than your actual skin tone to your face. Now let’s get started with those makeup trends!

We’re excited to announce that one trend that survived the winter is glitter! Glitter is hot and here to stay. Experiment by coating your lips in full on glitter, adding glitter to your eyebrows, using glitter to accent your lips and eye liners. Heck, you should even try using glitter instead of eye shadow.

One thing to take away from the spring fashion shows is the blush bomb. Now that winter is gone it’s time to shine bright and be noticed with color. Bright shades of blush are trending with bright reds, bright pinks, rosy shades.

Blush is literally reaching new heights by being spread up to the temple with glossy smudges. Although people are being a bit more reserved by only smudging it all across their apple cheeks. To add to the glam add a splash of shimmer in the center or have your nails match your blush.

Pucker up, it’s time to discuss lips. A lot of new things are happening with lip makeup these days! A lot of blood things, that is. It’s time to turn up the color with bright shades of fuchsia, electric orange, cherry red, peachy orange, teal, and more.

Texture wise lips are getting creamier. They look soft and wet. Things are also getting mixed up with semi-matte lips. You can have a matte outside with a creamy inside or vice versa. You can also have a matte top lip with a creamy bottom lip.

Why stop at one color? It’s time to experiment with fades that start with an inner lighter color and fade to dark. Also, we’re seeing more and more of darker top lips with lighter bottom lips. To be extra bold accent your Cupid’s bow with a metallic shade.

The 80’s called, they want to come back, and they’re doing it in style. Pastel pinks are covering eyelids and we can’t get enough of it. Other popular colors include emerald, cobalt, warm peach, teal, glossy pink, robin egg, and shades of red.

Wash out eyes where the color starts off intense and then fades away with a glossy smudge are in, especially in shades of orange-red, rosy red, and burgundy red.

Instead of having typical eye shadow painted around your eye it’s time to throw out the instructions by smearing it from one corner to the other for a rocker chick vibe. Also, glossy and smudged smoky eyes seem to be all the rage.

Speaking of rocker, be sure to use smudge eyeliner in shades of black, gray, brown, or navy. Winged cat tips are still in, along with tracing only half of the outer corner of your eye. Don’t forget to accent your wings with some glitter or a metallic shade.

As far as you complexion it’s time to get highlighted and glossy. The athletic, moisturized look and a healthy glow are in. You can achieve this look by highlighting your skin with tones of yellow and gold. Then be sure to throw in a little shimmer for warmth.

Spring Is Coming!

We’re ready to warm up and experiment with new colorful looks to bring in the spring. Remember to clean out your makeup box and to learn new tips and techniques to show off and be trendy at your upcoming makeup parties!

Avoid These Items If You Have Sensitive Skin

There are good days and bad days for your skin, especially if you have sensitive skin. You could be going about your day as normal, then you could all of the sudden use a product that causes your skin to flare up. Then you could become plagued with redness, puffiness, dryness, itchiness, and more! Make every day a good skin day by avoiding these irritants if you have sensitive skin.

Skin Irritants To avoid

One of the major skin irritants you can come into contact with is fragrances. Scents in candles, perfume, lotions, essential oils, and more can cause your skin to have an allergic reaction. You could get itchy, red, and puffy, so try to find the scent that irritates you and avoid getting it if you can’t live without candles and perfume. Also, always go for unscented lotions and moisturizers.

Be sure to watch out for glitter. If the label on your lotion says shimmering put it back because glitter can make your skin itch and break out in a hot minute.

Another thing that should be avoided in items like lotions or bath bombs is dyes. The chemicals in dyes often contain harsh irritants unless they’re all natural, but even then they can still cause your skin to freak out.

Read the labels on your face wash, moisturizers, skin peels, and more, because they often contain acids like lactic acid, ascorbic acid, glycolic acid, malic acid, and more. These products can irritate and burn your face, leading to redness and puffiness.

Always watch out for alcohol. It’s most often found in toners and facial cleansers. Nothing dries your skin out like alcohol! It can also cause your skin to become red and tender to the touch. Alcohol should simply be avoided altogether.

Some facial scrubs should be avoided. For example, if they have abrasive materials like fruit pits or crystals they can really inflame your skin. Go for a sugar scrub instead.

You have to watch out for soap, generic household soaps, or the little bars found in hotel bathrooms can really dry out your skin, leading to cracking and bleeding hands. Be sure to get a soap with moisturizer in it, or use your own alcohol-free hand sanitizer.

Speaking of soap, you should also know that your household cleaners could also be irritating your skin. Dish detergents, cleaning sprays, even dust polish can all do a number on your skin because they’re full of harmful chemicals that aren’t meant for us to touch. Always wear gloves when cleaning, even when doing the dishes.

Whenever you’re washing the dishes, taking a shower, or washing your hands remember to use mildly hot water, not steaming hot. Save the hot baths for special occasions or super cold winter nights because hot HOT water can really dry out your skin and cause eczema to flair up.

Heat, in general, can actually be bad for sensitive skin. If you’re hot during a heat wave and you start to sweat your skin could become irritated and start to chafe!

If you do find yourself out in the heat watch out for sunscreens that have harsh added chemicals. They can burn your skin and dry it out and that’s before you even come into contact with the sun’s UV rays! They’re are all natural forms of sunscreen that you can use instead.

Your clothes could be bothering you! Scented laundry detergents and dryer sheets could give you an allergic reaction. Before you know it you’ll have random rashes all over. Try using liquid fabric softener and gentle detergents free of scents and dyes instead. Also, Watch out for wool and other abrasive fabrics that could set off your eczema.
