15 Essential Beauty Tips for Teenage Girls

Thursday, September 13th, 2018

As girls step into the beautiful phase of teenhood, they’re bombarded with countless things to care about which they didn’t before.

They feel the urge to keep up with everything happening around them. Sometimes things can go wrong while experimenting, but that’s how you learn, right?

Grooming yourself is a part of your self-development. Doing it right shouldn’t be a reason that keeps you from doing what you want to. So, here we are with fifteen of our best tips to make your teenage life a little less stressful. Stick with us to discover the right techniques for skincare, beauty, and style to enhance your inner beauty and glow from within.

Know How to Groom Yourself in the Proper Way

Like I mentioned above, grooming is extremely important for girls to look and feel fresh. Here are the things you need to keep in mind, to do it right:

1. Cleanse, Tone and Moisturize

Include cleansing, toning and moisturizing in your everyday skincare routine.

With an appropriate regime, you’ll be able to keep your skin clear from dirt and pollution triggering acne and pimples.

Clean your face with a mild cleanser in the morning and before going to bed. Massage the cleanser in a gentle motion on your face and wash it off with water.

Follow up with mild toner right after your cleanser. The toner will help to open up your pores and let your skin breathe.

Lock everything in with a good moisturizer that helps to hydrate your skin to keep it soft and glowy.

Adopting this CTM regime has proven to work wonders for teenage girls all over the world and still is the best basic skincare method.

2. Scrubbing Your Face and Body

To get rid of the dead skin cells and promote cell regeneration it’s best to use a homemade scrub with sugar as it is gentle for your skin.

To get rid of flaky dead skin cells that make you look unhealthy, you need to exfoliate your skin once a week.

You could use store-bought scrubs that are not harsh on the skin. However, homemade scrubs, as mentioned earlier, works well too.

Like your face, the rest of your body needs proper exfoliation too.
Scrub the shoulders, knees, and back before you take a shower.

3. Basic Hygiene and Grooming

To avoid cuts, shave your legs right after taking a shower. Be careful when you do so, use skin-friendly tools.

If you choose to wax, then do so by wrapping up with a cold bath to soothe your skin.

One of the essential things in grooming is to cut your nails regularly and keep them in a healthy state. You need to cut your fingernails and toenails and keep them clipped.

Use transparent nail polishes to avoid yellow and dirty looking nails or apply a base coat.

4. Get Your Beauty Sleep No Matter What

It’s time to be serious about getting beauty sleep.

We know all that social media and distraction are keeping you awake at night, but it ’s just not worth it.

Your body and brain need to calm down and prepare you for the next day of all the activities you’re going to do, be it studying or hanging out.

A good night’s sleep is a treat to your eyes so that they won’t be appearing dark or swollen.

Tips for the Lips and Hair

Amidst all the attention to our skin, we often forget our lips and hair. Most people don’t even know where to begin. So here it goes:

5. Take Good Care of Your Baby Lips

Your lips need to be moisturized with lip balms or petroleum jelly. You could also apply coconut oil to your chapped lips at night before going to bed. Don’t peel and lick flaky, dry lips as it makes the situation worse.

Lipstick doesn’t look good on chapped lips, so moisturize your lips before applying any matte lipstick. Most lipsticks dry out the delicate skin of the lips.

6. Your Hair Needs Oil

Don’t neglect your hair no matter how busy you are. Make sure you get yourself a hot oil hair massage to strengthen your roots and for nourished hair. Doing this twice a week will keep your scalp healthy.

7. The Conditioner is Essential for your Hair-care

Your hair is exposed to lots of UV damage and pollution. To protect it use conditioner after the shampoo. Apply conditioner to the tips of your wet hair, not your scalp.

8. Be Careful with Hair Colors

Getting your hair colored is definitely fun to think about. But know that hair dye strips off the natural nutrients from your hair.

Go easy on the hair coloring process; it could leave your hair as a disaster if not taken care of properly.

9. Clean Your Hair Properly

When you shampoo, make sure you apply to your scalp. Avoid applying shampoo on the ends of your hair that could take away the natural oils of your hair.

What Teens Should Know About Makeup

At this age, it’s common for girls wanting to go all-out! But remember girls, when it comes to makeup, less is more. More details mentioned below:

10. Things to Remember About Makeup

Always try out the makeup product before purchasing. Ask your local stores if they have samples, which they usually do.

Testing out is important because, during teens, your skin could readily react to harsh chemicals and leave acne scars.

11. Find out your Best Feature and Highlight it

You may want to keep up with the trends in the runways and Instagram.
However, not all makeup trends would suit your delicate skin; some could make you look older and unattractive. Use light shades of makeup on your best features to highlight your best feature.

12.  Don’t Overdo Your Foundation

Remember that layering up foundation could make you look cakey and messed up.

A heavy foundation does not let your skin breathe and clogs up your pores.
If you have blemishes, hide them with concealer or use BB and CC creams instead of foundation.

Dress Your Best

Last but not the least, let’s talk about dressing. No matter how cool your makeup and hair is, if your dress is a disaster, well then, so are you. Dressing well is a sign of good manners and here’s how you can do it well:

13. Stick to the Things That Suit You

You may want to wear ripped jeans or oversized coats to keep up with the trends. But going overboard can make you look gaudy over classy. Instead, wear comfortable colors and fabrics that don’t make you look too try-hard.

14. Create a Balance and Add Accessory

Dressing sense comes from experimenting with colors and patterns. You don’t need a lot of money to dress well, what you really need is understanding.

Avoid going overboard with colors at the same time. Wear contrasting colors or pair up a solid colored bottom to an embroidered top.

Moreover, if your dress is a little too simple, accessorize! Again, don’t over-do, skip the big earrings if you’re wearing a necklace.

15. Some Timeless Styles to Follow

Wearing a floral top? Layer a plain denim jacket on top. Customize colors by wearing dark on the top and light colors inside.

You could add a belt to a simple gown or maxi dress and change your look to a classy one. Belts accentuate your shape and make you look more put together.

On a side note, if you have a teenage daughter or relative and they have an upcoming birthday, it can be overwhelming to choose a gift for girls that age.

They like to keep up with the trends so get them something contemporary.
However, this advice is to the teenage girls; the teens may seem overwhelming, and you might notice a lot of changes in your bodies as well as your personalities.

Do what others do if that makes you happy, but remember to keep a balance. Don’t lose your individuality and sanity!

Beauty Issues That Worry Women
Around the World

Monday, August 13th, 2018

It seems like it has never been more difficult to be a woman than today. The pressure put on women to be the best in all areas of their life often makes women feel anxious in their struggle to be a good role model to their children or younger girls, to always carry themselves in a certain way, to be great at their job, to be impeccable in housekeeping and always look great. The media are always the first to blame, especially social media, which is crowded with images that promote a certain surreal look that is almost impossible to achieve, triggering insecurities and anxiety with women of all ages. However difficult it may seem to not fall into these traps of modern society, there is a way of being yourself, loving who you are, and still taking good care of your body, mind and soul.

Skin problems
Whether it is acne, oily skin or wrinkles, skin problems present one of the most widespread causes of anxiety and insecurity with women all around the world. No matter how successful or beautiful they may look to the rest of the world, bad skin makes women feel miserable and unattractive. It is only worsened when women start comparing themselves with movie stars or Instagram models. However, the only way to find a solution is to stop all the comparisons and realize that we are all unique and beautiful in our own categories. Moreover, there are so many natural remedies, cosmetic products and procedures that can help us get a more healthy-looking skin and help us become more confident and more appreciative of ourselves.

Weight issues
Another great struggle for women of all ages is their weight. The causes of some added pounds can vary from health conditions, unhealthy diets, pregnancy, etc. and hence can affect women of any age. Even though the public has started to show more understanding and inclusive treatment of people of all sizes is on the way, the inner struggle and insecurities are still very present. Even though there are hundreds of efficient and healthy diets, workout and lifestyle regiments that can solve weight problems, in order for it to be a successful journey, the decision that precedes it must come from a good place of self-love, and not from pressure imposed by the media.

Breast size
As one of the symbols of femininity and fertility, the size of female breasts has been one of the major socially-approved factors affecting the level of their attractiveness. Even though modern, independent women don’t necessarily succumb to those views, most women strive to achieve a certain shape and size of their breasts in order to feel confident in their own skin, or to reduce pain caused by overly large breasts. In either case, breast surgery is the most efficient way to solve this issue, and more and more women are proudly admitting to having work done, thus creating a more open and including atmosphere, free of judgment.

Remember, it starts with you
As is the case of any problem, it all starts with ourselves and how we perceive it. When it comes to the beauty issues that worry the women of today, we need to first question our own part in them. So many times, it is actually women that put pressure on themselves and each other, much more than the media or society. This is the case because it is more harmful when you hear something from a person that is very much like yourself, and it automatically makes you think that there is something wrong with you. For example, think of how many times you have judged another woman for wearing a lot of highlighter on her face. Makeup was supposed to be fun and creative and we shouldn’t immediately associate it with being fake or insecure. Even if it is a means covering insecurities, why judge it, if it actually helps a person to be happier and more confident. Because, that is essentially what we are all after, anyway.

What You Need to Know About Charcoal Toothpaste and How it Works

Monday, August 13th, 2018

If you spend much time on social media, then you have undoubtedly seen pictures and news about how activated charcoal toothpaste for teeth is the next big thing in teeth whitening and holistic wellness. Such products have become immensely popular over the years with thousands of avid users endorsing them. Even celebrities like Kim Kardashian and Gwyneth Paltrow openly endorse the use of activated charcoal in the skin and dental care products.


So what exactly is activated charcoal toothpaste and what reason do people have for brushing their teeth with it? In this article, we aim to help people find the answer to the latter and decide for themselves if jumping in on the bandwagon is worth the trouble.

So what is charcoal toothpaste?
Let us make one thing clear — the type of charcoal used on toothpaste is not like the ones you use for barbecues and the like. Charcoal toothpaste contains activated charcoal as an active ingredient.

Activated charcoal is a type of carbon sourced from natural materials (usually coconut shells) and treated to feature a highly porous surface. With regards to dental care, the millions of pores in activated charcoal helps bind tar, stains, and bacteria present on the teeth for a healthier and whiter appearance.

Is it safe to use?
Most people who think that charcoal toothpaste for teeth is not safe, picture the same type of charcoal used for their grill which is again not the case. Activated charcoal is non-toxic, and for centuries, has been used for many health and wellness reasons. Dental care is just one of them and activated charcoal is the primary ingredient for many other health and wellness products like soap, shampoo and body lotion.

Can the use of activated charcoal toothpaste whiten teeth?
Much of the popularity surrounding the use of activated charcoal today is related to teeth whitening. To some extent, such claims are indeed true — charcoal toothpaste can help lighten teeth discoloration by lifting surface stains. However, extensive discoloration that lies deep within the teeth will see no noticeable improvement and will require a more extensive solution such as laser teeth whitening.

Is brushing with charcoal toothpaste for you?
The decision of whether to include charcoal toothpaste in your dental care regimen is entirely up to you. However, keep in mind not to use charcoal toothpaste excessively for any reason. Activated charcoal is a little abrasive and can wear down the tooth enamel,leading to serious dental problems if used too often. Surely not the results that you were hoping for when using activated charcoal toothpaste.

Brush with activated charcoal toothpaste no more than three times a week and use light gentle movements. If you have sensitive teeth, to begin with, you can also smear the toothpaste on your teeth using one finger and rub gently. The key is not to exert too much pressure which can damaging the tooth enamel.

If you are looking for a more natural and effective means to lighten moderate cases of teeth discoloration and maintain oral health, then you cannot go wrong with activated charcoal toothpaste. Just make sure that you are using it correctly and for the right reasons.

10 Home Spa Hacks

Tuesday, June 19th, 2018

Today, more than ever, we often feel like our lives are becoming more hectic and stressful with every day that passes. Everyday, we find ourselves juggling day-to-day tasks and unending lists. This daily struggle often finds us caught in a brutal cycle and feeling overwhelmed. Our hectic lives can cause a disconnection between our bodies and minds, leaving us at the mercy of stress and its effects on our bodies, moods, and health. This makes it imperative we indulge ourselves with a little relaxation and self-care to keep us healthy and happy.

A simple way we can accomplish this goal, is by treating ourselves to a day of pampering at the spa. Unfortunately, sneaking off to the spa is not a very feasible option for many of us due to schedules, finances, or locations. However, all is not lost! With a little creative thinking and mindful choices we can bring the spa to us. This is wonderful news, because research is finding self-care improves our overall health, boosts our immune systems, reduces levels of stress, and even enhances our sleep which can leave us feeling refreshed and relaxed.

To indulge in some much-needed self-care, try one or more of the following 10 home spa hacks to help wash stress down the drain:

Soak it off
And easy, but effective solution, is to enjoy a hot and steamy bath. Transform your ordinary bathtub into a magical spa experience by gathering the following items: fragrant flower petals, essential oils, favorite epsom salts, white candles, your favorite playlist, a bottle of wine, and a calming arrangement of your favorite flowers. Then, shut the door and soak away all your stress, worries, and anxiety.

Bomb it!
Throw a little “shock and awe” at stress with some homemade fizzing bath bombs. Gather common household ingredients, such as: epsom salts, cornstarch, baking soda, and a little citric acid to make any bath luxurious and relaxing. You can also add your favorite essential oils and scents to maximize your home spa experience.

Just beat it!
Crack an egg or two and use the whites to whip up a foamy skin treatment. This home spa hack is eggs-cellent for treating oily skin by working as a simple toner. The yolks can be beaten with a dash of olive oil or mayonnaise and a splash of water to create a natural deep conditioning treatment for your hair.

Add some heat
It’s the small details that make a spa treatment soothing and an easy way to achieve this by bringing the heat. Warm towels in the dryer and heat lotions by placing them in a container brimming with hot water. This is an easy way to pamper yourself without a lot of extra prep work or cost.

Make your own beauty masks
Instead of buying pricey masks that are loaded with chemicals, raid your kitchen cupboards and fridge to create your own luxurious mask. Consider combining a little oatmeal, honey, avocado, or yogurt for a soothing skin treatment.

Close your eyes
Refresh tired or strained eyes by placing cucumber slices, wet green tea bags, or tiny slices of potatoes on your closed eyelids. This home spa hack allows you to take advantage of natural antioxidants found in these common items to reduce inflammation and puffiness.

Remember your hands and feet
Take care of all parts of your body, especially tired hands and feet by soaking them for five minutes in warm water. Follow this treatment with a generous application of a favorite lotion and then apply clear nail polish to your nails.

Embrace mini-meditations.

Any trip to the spa isn’t complete without a little meditation. So, while treating yourself to a home spa day, be sure to include mini meditations. You don’t need expensive equipment or any special equipment to embrace this technique, simply focus on your breathing while paying attention to your senses. Focus on things you can feel, like warm water running over your skin or how the sunlight radiates on your face.

Have a ball
Roundup wayward tennis balls to use for rolling out knots and areas of tension in your back or shoulders. While using a pillow to prop up your head, place the balls under your back and roll your body over them to relieve tight muscles.

Infuse your water with a little flavor
We know that setting aside time for self-care is crucial for our well-being, but it doesn’t have to be tasteless. Create your own infused waters by placing cucumbers, sprigs of mint, a handful of favorite fruits, and slices of lemons or limes in your glass of water. Sip on this concoction throughout the day for a little spa therapy at home.

6 Skincare Habits for Youthful Looking Skin

Tuesday, June 19th, 2018

A big part of a woman’s confidence comes from the appearance of her skin. Sun spots, wrinkles, scars, and other skin issues can make it difficult to live our daily lives carefree and happy, especially if we don’t feel beautiful enough to be proud of our own face. Rather than using makeup to play with colors, we start using it to hide behind it. So, what can we do to avoid this and keep our skin youthful and beautiful? Well, we’ve got some tips.

Always use sunscreen

This is the number one, unavoidable rule that you always need to adhere to. Sunscreen is your best bet when it comes to preventing skin cancer, but it’s also pretty damn amazing at staving off wrinkles and preventing hyperpigmentation. Most of the signs of aging are actually a consequence of sun damage, and if you spend a lot of time outside, you really need to protect your skin. This holds true for every season of the year, not just summer. Bear in mind that sunscreen really is the best way to do this because makeup that contains SPF usually doesn’t have a high enough of a protection factor, and even if it does, you’d need to slather it on in a pretty thick layer for it to be fully effective. We also recommend avoiding sunbathing too much (use a self-tanning lotion if you want some more color), and especially avoid tanning salons (we’re not joking around here, they’re extremely bad for your skin).

Cut down on sugar
Sugar doesn’t only affect your weight, but your skin as well. Through the process called glycation, sugar binds itself to protein molecules when it enters our bloodstream and degrades our collagen and elastin molecules. This causes your skin to degrade and increases your chance of developing wrinkles. It can also make your skin sag. Instead, try eating more veggies and lean meats, particularly superfoods that can nourish your skin from the inside out.

Be very consistent

The key to that delectably soft, plump complexion is a combination of good products and consistency. By incorporating a quality serum, moisturizer, and an eye cream you will have a great set of moisturizing skincare products at your disposal, especially if you pick products that don’t contain parabens, harsh chemicals, or synthetic fragrances. Then, the only thing you’ll need to do to help it along is to stay consistent. Don’t be lazy with the application because establishing a good routine is really the key to letting all of the products do their magic. Besides, skincare shouldn’t be a chore. Think of it more as a calming beauty ritual that’s there to make you feel pampered every day.

Get enough sleep
Lack of sleep can literally cause neurological and cardiovascular damage, so is it any wonder that it can cause wrinkles as well? If you don’t get enough sleep, your skin doesn’t get the chance to repair itself during the night, you also wake up swollen, exhausted, and squinting at the world as you stumble around looking for coffee. Get your regular seven hours a night, ladies! It’s called “beauty sleep” for a reason.

Drink more water

As simple as this tip is, it’s incredibly effective. If you drink enough water, your skin will be clearer and better moisturized. It’s particularly important to stay hydrated if you drink a lot of tea or coffee, or exercise regularly. Seriously, try to increase your daily water intake and see how your skin feels after only three weeks.

Have strategies to unwind
And finally, the biggest contributor to bad skin is stress. It’s bad for our overall health, and it’s terrible for our complexion. So, what can be done? Since none of us can really avoid stress, it’s important to find strategies to deal with it. Perhaps you will go out for a run, or maybe you’ll go to the salon for a massage. Yoga, tai chi, or sports can really help you unwind, but so can activities such as painting, making crafts, listening to music, and especially reading a book. Why not sit down in a comfy chair, put on a sheet mask, and enjoy a good novel?

Hope you enjoyed these tips. The biggest trick really is to make them all a part of your daily routine, so try not to skip any of these steps and enjoy the way your face is slowly being rejuvenated over time.
