How to Get Longer, Sexy Lashes Naturally

Tuesday, September 30th, 2014

Who doesn’t want eyelashes like the ones featured in mascara ads? The models always have “come-hither” ones that are long, lush, glossy and voluminous. And even though we know that those lashes are the result of a makeup artist’s expertise or Photoshop, we still flock to drugstores and cosmetic counters anticipating the thicker, fuller lashes that makeup brands promise.

If you’ve been blessed with a good amount of eyelashes, mascara can be a quick and simple fix if you want to give your lashes a little oomph. But what do you do if you don’t have much to work with? False lashes are an option, but who has time to apply them every day? And lash extensions can set you back up to $400 per session. If you want more dramatic lashes and don’t want to go to extremes, here are a few things that you can do to help promote eyelash growth.

Eat a Well-Balanced Diet

Just like the hair on your head, your lashes can thrive if you nourish them from the inside out. By eating a diet rich in vegetables, fruits, whole grains and lean proteins, you can help ensure growth. You can also try adding a daily multivitamin if you don’t think you’re getting enough nutrients. A supplement that contains vitamins B, D and E is ideal. These vitamins are key for boosting growth and keeping lashes strong. Biotin is also another option. You can try a supplement or eat biotin-rich foods like bananas, pecans and sardines. Be sure to check with your doctor to make sure that supplements are right for you.

Groom Your Lashes

You take care of your hair every day. So start tending to those lashes. Try brushing your lashes twice a day with an eyelash brush. Brushing on a regular basis can help encourage growth. Add a little vitamin E oil to the process as well. Vitamin E oil is great because it prevents shedding. You can find vitamin E oil at a drugstore or health food store. Other options to try are castor oil and emu oil. Just lightly apply the oil of your choice to your lashes before bedtime, and avoid getting in in your eyes.

Always Be Gentle
When you’re taking off your eye makeup at night, don’t tug or rub your lashes. Use gentle strokes when using makeup remover or cold cream. And if you use lash curlers daily, you might want to take a break from them. Over time, they can weaken lashes and cause breakage. Try combing them instead for a neater look. If you’re looking for a more permanent lash growth solution that won’t break the bank, try everLASHing Lash Growth Serum from Verseo Beauty & Wellness. With this special blend of cell-regenerating peptides, botanical ingredients and lash conditioning elements, you can see healthier and fuller lashes in just four weeks.

Tips to Prepare Your Skin for Winter Weather

Thursday, September 25th, 2014

As the first official day of fall is just behind us, this is the perfect time to start thinking about the changes to your skincare routine to keep your skin protected in the cooler months of the year.

Neutrogena-Moisture 1. Use a Good Face Moisturizer
One of the most important steps is to add a good facial moisturizer to your daily routine (if you aren’t already use one). Assuming you’ve already been using one, now is the time to switch to a deeper moisturizer. A great product for the coldest winter months is Neutrogena Deep Moisture Day Cream with SPF 20. Even though it’s cold outside, the sun’s damaging rays can still harm skin so don’t forget to wear sun protection!

2.Condition Before You Wash
Condition dry hair with a deep conditioner before washing. Use a shower cap and coat your hair with an intensive conditioner like Dove’s Intensive Repair Conditioner. Leave the conditioner on for 30 minutes to an hour to help retain moisture. Adding this to your routine once a week can help prevent dryness. Also make sure to use a moisturizing body wash such as Dove Deep Moisture Body Wash, to keep your skin hydrated.

3. Reduce Your Shower Time
Taking long hot showers may be tempting in the winter months, but the heat can strip your skin of the moisture that it needs most during this time of year. Try to keep your shower length to ten minutes and don’t put the water at it’s peak temperature.

4. Keep Your Skin Conditioned
Get a good moisturizer for your hands and body such as Aquaphor Advanced Therapy Healing Ointment. The moisturizer helps protect from drying effects of wind and cold weather. Make sure to keep a travel size product with you for when you are on-the-go.

The Best Ways to Pamper Your Feet in
Spas Today

Tuesday, September 16th, 2014

Everyone deserves to be pampered from time to time and this does not only include ladies anymore. It is less likely that a man will be will be going in for French pedicures and more feminine treatments, but why not treat yourself to a massage or a foot detox? So, what exactly can you get for your feet in spas today?

Massages That Will Make Your Body Melt
There are few things in this world that are as relaxing and as pleasant as professional massages that you can get in spas. This also includes foot massages that can vary in techniques, duration and parts of the foot that are massaged, but which all share one very important thing – they feel so great.

The most common type of foot massage is the Chinese foot massage also known as reflexology massage, which is supposed to remove the energy blockages in the body by applying pressure to certain points on the foot. It is a treat, whether you believe in the energy stuff or not.

Thai foot massage is quite similar, although it involves the use of sticks that are used to apply pressure to certain points on the foot. Of course, there are some differences in the oils that are used, the movements and so on.

You can also go for a sports foot and leg massage which is geared more to helping you with certain foot problems, such as plantar fasciitis, arthritic pain, as well as common ankle and toe pain as well as daily wear and tear.

Pedicures That Will Make Your Feet Beautiful
A nice, comprehensive and rich pedicure is the most pampering that you can provide for your feet and if you ask us, the best place to get these is at spas where you will find the best masseurs. When it comes to pedicures, the choice is even greater than with massages, although the pedicures will mostly differ in the products that are used.

For example, the French pedicure is characterized by the nail polish finish which involves clear or light pink coat for the largest part of the nail with the white crown on the tips. Paraffin pedicure involves dipping the feet in paraffin wax before the nail polish. Margarita pedicure involves various lime products, while a champagne pedicure will involve actual wine and grape products.

More Experimental Procedures
A fish pedicure is a relatively new and still somewhat controversial treatment that you can get in many spas today. It involves dunking the feet in a container with water and a certain type of fish which eat the dead skin off the feet. The opinions are still quite divided on this treatment though.

Detox wraps and baths are also a somewhat new type of foot pampering and once again, the opinions are divided. Some say these detox treatments are a waste of time and money while others swear by them.

What are you still doing reading this? Go to your nearest spa and spoil your feet the way they deserve to be spoiled, carrying you around all day.

Favorites Friday! Sally Hansen Miracle Gel

Friday, September 12th, 2014

Sallly-MiracleThis week’s Favorites Friday feature is Sally Hansen’s Miracle Gel nail polish. We’ve been wanting to try this for a while to see if it lives up to it’s “miracle” claims.

The product promises 14 days of color and shine with no light needed. Since the other gel kits with the LED light are a bit more of a procedure, the Miracle Gel is an enticing option. You can purchase the nail color and the top coat for around $10 each, or the duo pack for about $16 at your local drugstore.

After applying the color and top coat, we did notice more of a gel-like finish than most of our other “regular” nail polishes. The finish is a bit smoother as well. The two application steps were super easy, and the result flawless. Now, as the product promises up to 14 days of color and shine, let us admit that the glossy manicure did start to chip before the 14 days were up. It definitely lasts longer than the average polish, but there is an advantage to the longer lasting gel that requires the light.

Overall, a great product for the low price point compared to an gel kit with an LED, and much less of a hassle. Check out our Facebook page to leave your own review!

Even & Bright Pink Lemon and
Mandarin Orange Scrub From St. Ives

Monday, September 8th, 2014

604-731214-EvenBright-scrub-300x300The best-selling Apricot Scrub from St. Ives may always be a #1 favorite, but a new contender is right up there with the best.

WHAT IT IS:
A gentle scrub with a Vitamin C to even skin tone and an unbeatable fragrance.

INGREDIENTS:

  • 100% natural exfoliants
    (hydrated silica)
  • Pink lemon and mandarin orange, both known to be sources of vitamin C (known to help even out skin tone)
  • WHY YOU WANT IT:
    The scrub contains pink lemon and mandarin orange, which are both sources of Vitamin C and are known to help even skin tone. The exfoliants are more gentle than the Apricot Scrub, but still leave skin just as even and soft. Since the scrub is more mild, you can use it often since it is not as harsh on skin as the original Apricot Scrub. It is also sulfate-free so doesn’t dry skin, oil-free as to not clog pores, as well as hypoallergenic and dermatologist-tested. Not to mention the pink lemon and mandarin orange fragrance fills your shower with an amazing aroma!

    HOW TO USE:
    Moisten face with water. Dispense product onto fingertips and massage over face. Rinse off with water. Instructions on the product indicate 3-4 times per week, but the exfoliants are mild and the scrub is in our experience, gentle enough for daily use.
