As a beauty blogger and reviewer, I’ve tried countless anti-aging products including creams, serums, scrubs and masks. I can say that without a doubt, hyaluronic acid is a wonderful ingredient to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, lines and skin deformations. Timeless Hyaluronic Acid Pure goes deep into your skin to moisturizer and reduce lines, wrinkles and puffiness. It is easily absorbed by the skin, and Timeless’s formula contains more of the active ingredient than most other products – and doesn’t have all those added fillers. If you’re looking for an inexpensive way to fight wrinkles, lines, under eye bags, puffiness and other skin flaws, this is the product you should try next! It just may be the last one you need to try.
Product: Timeless Hyaluronic Acid Pure

Whereas fall and winter are commonly characterized as gloomy, and indeed many are diagnosed with Seasonal Affective Disorders (SADs) around these times of the year, spring and summer which are associated with warm social gatherings, are fast approaching. Have you any idea what to shop for yet?
What to wear this spring
Make sure that you are making trendy fashion statements and spending your clothing budget well with the list of spring fashion trends enumerated below. Also, keep in mind that it is good to keep to simple choices but, a few luxurious pieces should help you put together statement outfits. “Luxury is the ease of a t-shirt in a very expensive dress,” one of the most respected names in the fashion industry, Karl Lagerfeld, would say.
Here are the five fashion trends that will bring hints of luxury to your spring styling:
We’ve been seeing this trend loved season after season in the past year. Whereas past seasons would generally lean over the metallics in silver and gold, this season we’ll love the metallics more subtly fused into our clothes in metallic threads. We are also seeing the proliferation of full clothes in metallic pastel shades, following the epic showing at the Elie Saab runway. The show revealed maxi dresses in halter neck cuts and kimono-inspired designs.
2. Furry-licious Footwear
Pompom shoes, so termed because of the fur balls that highlight the shoe design, whether these are ballerinas, stilettos or, trainers, will be big — or, should we say, it already is. The rich, soft feel of fur adds class to your wardrobe. Gucci takes fur so much farther with the addition of fur to its classic loafers. If you care to know, Gigi Hadid has been spotted wearing a pair. She owns the kind with prints on them and sold out as of press time.
3. Floral Skull Caps
Vintage and tasteful, we love how these accessories were incorporated on both casual bow-front collared sheer dresses and swimwear at the Miu Miu show. Inspired by the 50s, Miu Miu updates the look by arranging sculpted flower pieces to form this accessory. Oh, and did we tell you that these accessories come in vibrant shades of bright blue and neon greens.
When these pieces therefore are used on the face, it will highlight your facial skin. Let this trend watch serve as a warning to prompt you to brighten your skin. If you want fast results, check out clinic-based procedures like Cosmelan. This procedure does not use hydroquinone, a skin whitening active ingredient that is considered a suspected carcinogen.
From the leather and denim jackets designed with floral patterns to the sheer, flowy dresses accented with beautiful embroidered designs, this trend is showcasing our favorite spring pieces with artful details. Embroideries are also proving to be a great way to incorporate the customization principle embraced by millennials which the rest of us are also just starting to become acquainted with.
For your inspiration, check out the luxuriously embroidered pieces from Alexander McQueen, Gucci and Dolce and Gabbana. Gucci goes through lengths to show us how embroidery combined with plenty of metallic studs make for outstanding statement shoes.
5. Floral Prints
These pieces are the most anticipated among the biggest spring trends, and this season, they come in all forms, makes and sizes. Printed, embroidered or sculpted, these florals add drama to your outfits. The Alexander McQueen show will aptly demonstrate how you can mix and match even your floral accented leather jacket with a sheer, full length maxi dress that can be both appropriate for a formal affair or, good for an any day out for tea in al fresco fashion.
When you’re done dressing up to this season’s biggest and most stylish trends, care to see the overall look that you’ve created which includes your choice of jewelry and accessories, but also your hair and makeup. The outlook points out to makeup that is characterized by bright eyeliners and lip shades.
Classy Spring OOTD Ideas For You to Try
At the end of the day, fashion should always be worn with your personality. Trends lists, such as this one, should always be taken as informed forecasts to inform your own styling picks for the season. Quite frankly, there is nothing that should stop you from wearing anything that your heart desires. Still, new trends can serve to update your look season after season.

Most of us spend a long time preparing for their summer holiday. We visit the gym until we’ve lost lots of weight. People will even change the way they eat so their skin glows. It’s the time of the year where you’ll be able to fully relax.
Don’t forget all your hard work can easily go to waste if you’re not careful. If you want to look great until the day you arrive home you’ll need to implement extra tricks while you’re away. Here are some of the best ways you’ll be able to do it.
Keep Your Lips Hydrated
If you are outside it’s likely to be extremely sunny and when you are indoors the air-con will be on. In both those conditions your lips can dry out very quickly. When your lips are dry people will notice them when they’re talking to you. It’s always wise to carry lip balm around to use regularly. Drink lots of water to help with overall hydration too.
Avoid Bright Nail Polish
Feel free to wear bright nail polish on a big night out, but only if you’re going to take it off in the morning. Don’t wear it when you’re running around outside exploring. Bright polish is too demanding to wear sometimes, especially if you are on the move and don’t have time to repair it every time it chips off. Use a neutral color when polishing your nails, or if you can buff them instead it will be even better.
Protection From The Sun
It’s especially important to protect your face from the sun, because it could potentially look bright red after a long exposure. It doesn’t mean you have to stay in your room all day. Wear sunscreen during the day and stay out of the sun in the middle of the afternoon, but when you want to wear makeup in the latter part of the day use UV foundation.
Hang Up Your Clothes
You can look beautiful when you step outside, but it won’t count for much if your clothes have a specific, unpleasant smell. Even the best deodorant and perfume can’t hide your clothes if they’re musty. The main reason people have unpleasant smelling clothes when they travel is because they keep everything in their suitcase. Hang up your clothes and let them air out.
Freshen Up Your Puffy Eyes
When you’re at home your eyes will look okay because you’ll get enough sleep. Depending on how late you stay out and how much you drink, holidays are a bit different. There is a good chance your eyes will look like you’ve been up all night when you climb out of bed. Freshen up your puffy eyes quickly by wrapping ice in a napkin and rubbing them.
Take A Hair Wrap With You
There will be days when your hair isn’t looking at its best. Do you want to spend ages working on it, or would you rather go outside and enjoy your holiday? One of the easiest solutions is to take a hair wrap with you. Take a few if you think you’ll use them a lot. They’ll protect you from any bad hair days and you’ll look great.
You’ve worked hard this year, so you don’t want to mess it up. You will be able to look radiant at all times if you follow the advice we’ve spoken about today. When you are on holiday you always seem to enjoy it better when you’re confident about the way you look, but unfortunately the opposite can also be true.

Since we live in a modern, advanced world surrounded by advanced technology in every domain, we should be more aware of how our lives can be changed by smart and efficient devices. The beauty industry in particular, has come a very long way, with innovations that at a first glimpse might seem too good to be true. Summer time is just around the corner, meaning that if you want to have beautiful skin, you should get to know more about the latest discoveries in the beauty niche.
Scientists believe that in a few years,men and women will be able to wipe away any lines on their face, and that the process might be just as easy as removing makeup. So no more wrinkles around your cheeks, eyes and forehead! Revance is a toxin (which can also be found in Botox) and is currently being tested for its smoothness and straightening effect. Why undergo plastic surgeries such as facelifts, when you can just get rid of unpleasant wrinkles at home?
Rumor has it that soon enough we won’t be using water for regular baths. Static carbon fiber vacuums that are used on pets might be adapted for human usage. The new trend is called dry bath. Can you imagine that? Saving water and keeping our bodies clean at the same time is a paradox that can become reality. Of course, this doesn’t mean we won’t be using water, but it will be for relaxation purposes, and not for cleaning.
What is the point of dying your roots every five weeks and spending so much money? Scientists are planning on developing a pill that will prevent growth of the gray hair. Leukemia drug Gleevechas had positive results in restoring hair color. You just need to flip the right gene switch in the DNA, and choose the right expression. Besides that, we will be facing a heat sensitive dye colors, which will be activated when turning the hair dryer on. Can you imagine blow drying your hair, and watching it get colored? It’s fascinating.
We all know how painful waxing is, and thank God we don’t have to do it anymore. Now that laser technology has gone mainstream, men and women don’t have to use razors anymore. Permanent hair removal procedures are done at the salon (at the least the most efficient), and women will need an average of 5 to 10 sessions to have all their hair removed for good.
Conventional mirrors are going high-tech. A small sensor will built in a “smart” mirror will completely analyze you. It will measure everything, from moisture levels in your skin, oiliness and redness. If the meter says your skin is getting dry, you will just have to moisturize more. Also, the mirror will track your appearance, helping you get the right makeup based on your imperfections.
Sunscreens who? Sunblock what? The latest innovation in protecting your body from damaging UV light is the sun booth; a device you can install in the comfort of your home. Once you get in there, it automatically gets the sunscreen on your body, thus preparing it for the streets. Scientists are also working on developing a pill to protect the skin from UV light.
We all know how much time consuming brushing and flossing can be. Whitening is just as difficult, now that everyone is terrified by damaging techniques currently available. Scientists are currently working on a tooth gloss that will help restore discoloration causes by wine, coffee, cigarettes, and different foods. Also, a Japanese company has created a light powered toothbrush known as a Soladey-J3X, which claims to whiten your teeth without destroying the enamel. The device will also help remove bacteria and tartar within your mouth.
The beauty industry has evolved tremendously in the past 5 years. Right now, we have technologies we never even imagined will someday become reality. However, it’s always best to stay safe and choose only the treatments that work best on your skin. Don’t overlook natural face masks and homemade scrubs; these are still important to look and feel amazing regardless of your age.
