Kym Douglas Has Some Anti-Anxiety Tips
Beauty expert Kym Douglas is back and here to give you some tips on how to curb your holiday anxiety. When you are running from work to a party, Kym suggests a “skinny shirt” so you can layer your look without bunching up your shirt. If you are in a hurry and getting ready and get a deodorant stain on your little black dress, take a baby wipe and the stain disappears. Speaking of sweat, Kym has a shirt that doesn’t absorb sweat which is perfect for when you are at those parties and getting warm. You can also tweeze on the go with a Pluck n File.
