Simple Beauty Tricks To Help You Impress On Your Summer Adventure

Tuesday, April 4th, 2017

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.

Latest Beauty Innovations – What You Need to Know to Get Summer-Ready Skin

Tuesday, April 4th, 2017

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.


Wrinkle Fighters
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?

Bath Time

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.


Hair
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.

Hair Removal
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.

Skin Care
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.

Sun Protection
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.

Teeth
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.

Exfoliating The Right Way For Smoother Skin

Monday, December 19th, 2016

exfoliating-header-500-x-250

Exfoliation is an important step in your personal skincare routine, and facial exfoliation, in particular, can improve your skin’s appearance by ridding your face of dead skin cells and smoothing it out. Too much exfoliation, however, can be too harsh and worsen your skin. Understanding the proper way to exfoliate your skin–and understanding your skin type–is an important way to choose the best exfoliation option for you.

The Perks Of Exfoliation

Immediately after exfoliation results become apparent. By removing the top layer of dead skin cells from your skin and face, your skin can look brighter and feel smoother. Exfoliation can open pores and improve the effectiveness of topical skin treatments by allowing it to penetrate deeper after the top layer of skin is removed. Long-term benefits of exfoliation can include a boost in collagen production, which leads to younger-looking skin. Exfoliation is especially beneficial to those who have experienced premature fine lines and wrinkles due to UV exposure, and those who suffer from non-inflammatory acne like blackheads and whiteheads.

The 411 On Exfoliation

Your skin naturally renews itself approximately every 25 days until you reach the age of 30. Then the process slows down and can result in a duller complexion.  Your skin renews itself approximately every 28 days, but as we age the process begins to slow. As the process slows down the result can be a duller complexion.

There are three types of exfoliants:

  1. Over-the-counter, manual or enzymatic exfoliants that can be used once or twice per week
  2. Chemical exfoliants, like peels that can be administered at a dermatologist’s office
  3. At home exfoliation devices, which can be used at home regularly and cautiously.

For best results, exfoliate at night before bed. Your skin renews itself overnight!

Skincare Suggestions

Learn your skin type.
Before you begin searching for exfoliation products, it’s important to know your skin. For oily skin, stronger treatments and exfoliation methods like electronic facial devices can be used. For those with dry or sensitive skin, you may want to go easier on the exfoliation options and use something with milder enzymes or gentle manual exfoliants that won’t cause irritation.

Don’t overdo it.
If you’re using an at-home exfoliation method or treatment that’s on the mild side, you may only need to do it once or twice per week. For more aggressive treatments and procedures, like chemical peels or microdermabrasion, exfoliating a few times at your dermatologist’s biweekly or monthly. Don’t forget to remain conscious of your skin type and how sensitive your skin may be regarding certain treatments.

Pay attention to products
Do your homework and research various methods of exfoliation and products you can use at home. Not all methods and treatments are safe or effective for every skin type. One thing you can do is make sure the products you’re considering purchasing come from recognized, reputable companies or outlets. If you’re buying over-the-counter, check the chemical ingredients for a low acid concentration. You don’t need more than 10 percent glycolic acid or two percent salicylic acid.

Ask your dermatologist
If you’re still unsure of the best way to proceed with adding exfoliation to your skincare routine, ask a board-certified dermatologist to help you choose a safe option that works best for your skin type. For the best and most reliable results, asking a dermatologist is the way to go.

Exfoliation is Effective
Exfoliating your skin helps remove the build up of daily dirt and makeup residue, which enhances your skin’s ability to absorb everything else. Moisturizers, toners, acne medication, and anti-aging serums can produce more effective results on freshly exfoliated skin. Just like we buff our nails before we apply polish, and sand walls before we paint them, exfoliation provides the proper surface to apply everything else your skin may need.

Transitional Skincare – 6 Products to Use
in the Fall

Tuesday, October 11th, 2016

Hey, gorgeous!
Can you believe it’s already fall? It’s surreal how time flies!
To us – it still feels like summer when the air is silky and we’re all channeling our inner Amazon queens, tanned, messy and gorgeous. Ah, good days. However, the fall is not that bad, either – with oranges and deep greens all around, the smell of roasted chestnuts in the streets and fabulous fashion – the opportunities to enjoy it are plenty.

autumn

Naturally, with this rapid season change, to look our absolute best, we need to change our summer beauty routine to the fall one. Luckily for all of us little beauty geeks, transitional skincare products are already on shelves in our favorite stores, and it’s time we did some shopping!
Here’s a list of the basic summer-to-fall essentials to purchase.

Aqua Cream
Unfortunately, after laying out on the beach for hours on end, your skin starts reflecting so much more than a tan; it gets dry and flaky and you need to employ a little bit of magic to protect it from damage the sun’s done. You need the water dried up from your skin to be quickly and deeply infused back in there, so look for a facial moisturizer made with retinol, beeswax, amino acids and rosemary extract for a fabulous hydrating effect. To restore skin’s natural glow and soften harsh lines, apply the cream under makeup and before bed.

Daily Peel
A high-quality daily peel will do wonders for getting skin back to its pre-summer naturally radiant state. Choose powerful, yet gentle exfoliate acids to help improve the skin’s texture and diminish fine lines in the long run. In case you’ve never used a peel before, you’ll be blown away by its effect.

The Right Antioxidant
The skin needs constant protection against the environment; this is why you need to find a serum that will feel natural on your skin. A good serum will be the best antioxidant your skin can get. Opt for a product whose powerful combination of ingredients helps repair your skin and some former skin-scarring or damage. Used every day, the serum will result in a remarkable change in the skin.

A Profound Eye Cream
The eye area is very sensitive to all weather factors, sun especially. Find eye cream which instantly cools and depuffs the under eye area and gives your face its initial glow. The best under eye creams are those made with caffeine as they successfully reduce bags and puffiness. After a long summer or a night without enough sleep, a coffee-based eye cream mask is what you want to go with.

A Night Cream
To knock out dry skin cells and up the ante on collagen production, find a good night cream that will do the magic. Creams to look for are those made with ingredients like glycolic and salicylic acids as they achieve the best effect of chemical exfoliation. Formulas based on bearberry, horse chestnut and white tea soothe the skin to mow over wrinkles, fine lines and hyperpigmentation.

A fabulous Makeup Eraser
After a long, makeup free summer, you’ll start using makeup again and you will need a product, gentle enough to nurture your skin and yet successfully remove anything you’ve got going on your face. It doesn’t replace cleansing, yet it works to remove makeup. Go for gentle formulas that aren’t invasive on the skin but are strong enough to remove waterproof and long wearing makeup.

Ladies, don’t worry too much about this seasonal transition; if you stick to the right formulas and quality products, your skin will restore its initial glow and elasticity in a second. Good luck picking!
