With Daylight Savings around the corner, it's time to address the evil foe of a change in sleep schedule: dark under-eye circles. It happens to the best of us: maybe you've spent time covering all evidence of an unnecessarily long night, or maybe you got the best eight hours of uninterrupted sleep that you've had in months.

Let's talk for a second about how busy we all are and how hard it is do our own hair. On shower days, many of us easily spend at least an hour on washing, blow-drying, and styling, often sacrificing time that could be spent on other important daily tasks. Who has time for that every day? Seriously, point us out to that person, because we need to know their secret.
Living in the world as an individual with sensitivities is cumbersome enough without throwing travel into the mix.
