Why You Should Wear Compression Socks
for Great Legs

Friday, July 21st, 2017

If you’ve been to the gym or out and about you may have noticed the tight leggings, shirts or socks people are wearing. These items are known as compression gear. What started out as black socks and leggings has evolved into all sorts of different types of clothing items in a wide array of fantastic colors and patterns. Why is everyone wearing compression gear? This type of clothing has a lot of benefits that not only make you look good, but make you feel good too.


Compression Gear
Compression gear are items made to fit tightly around your skin. Athletes, runners, travelers and people who hit the gym are only a few types of individuals who have benefited from the gear. They come in varying degrees of compression, and some have specific points of compression like on your calves or feet. They generally use a lot of spandex when making the clothing, which is why it fits tightly around different areas of your body.

Poor Circulation
For those that suffer from poor circulation, compression gear is the answer to your dilemma. The tightness squeezes certain areas, promoting blood circulation. Travelers and workers who sit or stand for long periods of time wear items like compression socks to decrease any swelling and help get the blood moving. This will help improve the appearance of your legs and make them feel much better.

Exercise
Daily exercise is recommended to keep our bodies healthy. It can be a walk, lifting weights, running or anything that gets your body moving. Compression gear is a favorite for those who work out and for athletes too. Some swear by their anti-inflammatory properties, and the tightness improves blood flow which helps muscles and damaged areas recover faster. Some wear it during their workouts and training, and others prefer to wear their compression clothing after the exercise to heal faster and reduce soreness.

Pretty Legs
Not only can compression items help recover faster by increasing blood circulation, but it can also make your stems look better too. Varicose veins, otherwise known as spider veins, are an issue that many people face on their legs. Wearing compression socks or leggings increase the blood flow in your legs, thereby reducing inflammation and helps get rid and prevent them from reappearing. They can be worn at night or during the day under clothing items to attain prettier and healthier legs.

Feel Better
Compression clothing is also a favorite for people who sweat. They also prevent chafing that causes rashes to appear. Spandex helps absorb and wick away moisture which helps prevent the irritating feeling chaffing causes. Rashes are also less common when using these items. Many athletes can be seen using compression clothing during their performance to help rid of these uncomfortable issues. If you have issues with rashes or chaffing, compression clothing might be the answer for you.

Legs Legs Legs
To have pretty, healthy legs, compression socks and support hoses can help you out. These items were created to place pressure on your lower extremities which lets the blood move better, reduces the appearance of large, unwanted varicose veins, and makes them appear slimmer due to the squeezing sensation of the spandex. Many items exist on the market today that can match most any outfit for a stylish and appealing appearance. You can wear these items to work or during a fun night out. Your legs will feel better and look better, even if you have worn them hours before. Don’t forget to hydrate, exercise, and wear your compression socks for the best legs you’ve ever had.

How To Style Curly Hair With Ease

Wednesday, July 12th, 2017

If you have curly hair, you either hate it or love it. Curly hair can be more difficult to manage than wavy or straight hair, but properly maintained curly hair is seen as the most beautiful in every culture around the world. So why is it most curly haired people have such trouble styling their hair with ease? Here are a few ways you can maintain your beautiful, curly locks without fuss.

Washing, Drying and Combing Curly Hair
Curly hair turns into frizzy hair very quickly unless you follow the right steps for washing and combing it. Lock in moisture by adding a deep conditioner to your hair and covering it with a shower cap as you enter the shower. This will help lock in moisture.

If your hair feels too oily, create a cleaning conditioner by mixing a sulfate-free shampoo with your conditioner and work it into your scalp. This will help keep your hair from overdrying. When your hair is too dry it tends to frizz, so you should consider skipping shampoo altogether one week.

Combing
Natural curls are often the prettiest and most desirable but combing and brushing often removes the curl you want, creating unwanted frizz. Use a wide-tooth comb to separate your locks without causing them to break up and frizz. Start combing at the ends and work your way to the base, because it’s easier to get tangles out toward the ends. Combing your hair in the shower while it still has conditioner in it is another great way to get the tangles out without creating frizz.

Drying
Drying your hair with a towel is another major cause for frizz and destroying what beautiful, natural curls you do have. Consider blotting your hair dry with a t-shirt instead of a towel, because t-shirts leave moisture in your hair removing water, while toweling removes water and moisture because of its more abrasive and porous nature. Hair dryers for curly hair should come with a diffuser, which is essential for drying wavy locks. Keep the heat low in order to prevent frizz and styling damage.

Quick Styling Tips for Maintaining Curls
Leave-in conditioner should be a curly haired person’s greatest ally. Add some leave-in conditioner to styling cream for shaping and separating curls. You can scrunch your curls up with this custom mix to lock in moisture and sculpt the perfect curl. 

You should also add some leave-in conditioner to a spray bottle with water for when your curls start to get dry or frizzy. This also helps freshen up your style when you are going a day or two between washes.

Hot Tools Styling Tip
When roundbrushing and blowing out your hair, twist it up and tie them off in loose sections before you go to bed to maintain your style without creating bed head kinks and creases in it. These loose ties will help you stretch out your blowout so you don’t have to continuously add heat to your hair.

The trick to styling curly hair with ease is to avoid frizziness at all costs. Leave-in conditioner, locking in water and combing carefully will help you keep your curly hair styled and frizz-free forever.

Product Review: Neocell Collagen Moisturizing Treatment Masque

Wednesday, June 28th, 2017

Product: Neocell Collagen Moisturizing Treatment Masque

Since face masks are all the rage these days, we were so excited to try out Neocell’s Collagen Moisturizing Treatment Masque. Just in time for summer too, my skin could use some hydration. The masque is smooth and creamy, and has a nice fragrance. Directions say to leave on for 20-40 minutes, 2-3 times per week. I followed the instructions, and used the mask 3 times in a week. The only downside is sometimes it’s hard to find a full 20-40 minutes at the beginning of my beauty routine, so twice I did the mask in the evening before bedtime (a nice relaxing ritual!).

Once I let the masque dry, it didn’t feel tight and dry against my skin like some masks do. The ingredients seemed to keep my skin pliable and soft. After using the masque, my skin felt soft and supple, and moisturized. I even went a few days without using my morning face moisturizer and my skin wasn’t dry at all. This is definitely a great go-to masque (with a nice scent!) if you are looking for something to hydrate dry skin. I loved how the results seemed to last longer than just one day – my skin felt moisturized for the entire week, and I didn’t even feel the need to use it for 4-5 days after the last time I had applied.

Price: $9.73

Get To Know The Latest Celebrity Style
And Runway Trends

Thursday, June 1st, 2017

Could the models on the runway and your top young celebrity fashion icons be wearing different styles in different ways? Quite likely but, here’s what we think: the trends will look similar. When the models wear them, the styles are fresh off the runways but, when the celebrities start to wear the designs, that’s when the trends start. So, how about we look at both at the same time?

Glamorous Spring Makeovers
Still contemplating on what to fill your closets with this season? You can’t possibly watch every runway show that just unfolded in New York, Milan, London and Paris — the four most fashionable capitals in the world — to get the buzz on the latest fashion trends. Watch how your favorite celebrities are dressing up the trends and taking them to wear casually on the streets

Here are the most stylish trends to wear this Spring:

Khaki
Khaki in military uniform is good but, khaki in softer materials that flow naturally an glide more softly on your skin will look and feel cooler on your skin in the warmer months. Miu Miu’s button-down khaki is an inspiration, most especially when paired with high waist bloomers like the one Gigi Hadid wore on the runway. Add a more feminine flair to your khaki style by getting inspired with a full outfit khaki creation from Sonia Rykiel.

Vintage
This season is seeing plenty of comebacks from decades past — 40s, 50s, 60s, 70s and 80s, to be exact. For a chic, vintage personality, get inspired by the fashionable, absolutely wearable outfits from Chanel and Miu Miu. If you like Emma Stone’s dainty, pale yellow dress at the Toronto Film Fest, this is the perfect season to rock her tea time look. Get bright and vibrant as you wear your vintage, old Hollywood glam this season.

Your must-have vintage items: playful and colorful step in shoes, geometrically printed and oversized bandanas, neon colored sunglasses, dainty head pieces, pearls, large wooden flower earrings and necklaces, and a dainty white or pastel colored headband. Don’t forget to match the vibrant colors this season with a fairer, glowing skin. A Cosmelan treatment can help you achieve that.

Soles With Fur
Add more luxury to your regular flats and loafers with a fur accent. The trend is generally credited to the addition of fur heels on the classic loafers by Gucci. Another trend, the pompom shoes, uses the fur ball as an accent from any pair of shoes that range from creepers to ankle boots to ballet shoes to stilettos.

Soles With Accents
Luxury and style for your soles do not end with fur. Gucci takes it farther to include rhinestones on the soles of clogs and platform shoes. We’ve also seen plenty of sculpted wedge heels that make the shoes feel more like an art piece rather than a simple pair of footwear. Get inspired as well by the unique and chic random accents created by DSquared2.

Military-Inspired Outfits
Other than the khaki, we are also seeing plenty of pants, shirts and dresses inspired by the army and the navy this season. The duo that started it all, Tommy Hilfiger and Gigi Hadid, had pieces in navy blue shades and button accents on the sleeves and pants that channel every military creation.

Grunge
One of the most comfortable footwear that you can wear this season are the combat boots. Put them on with your casual, above-the-knee-length dresses or, simply pair them with your baggy jeans that are so much a reminder of 80’s fashion. Feel free to wear this pair with your cropped and plaid pants, full-length skirts, and maxi dresses too.

Layered Spring/Summer Dresses
They’re dainty, sexy and oh-so feminine. While these trends are almost like spring and summer staples, we still couldn’t get enough of them beautiful layered, flowy dresses that add accents to your hips with every sway. Turn heads with inspiring pieces from Vilshenko Giovana, Proenza Schouler, Dolce and Gabbana, and Altuzarra.

We can tell you that the best shows this past season were those of Miu Miu, Chanel, Dolce and Gabbana, Ralph Lauren, Altuzarra, Elie Saab, and Alexander McQueen. At the end of the day though, it’s more important that you are able to match the trending designs with your own personality. Sometimes, the best way to do that is to emulate the style statements of your favorite celebrities.
