Winter Skincare Regimen for Healthy and Radiant Skin

Thursday, December 20th, 2018

Saying that achieving radiant skin in such harsh conditions is a challenging feat would almost be an understatement. We’re going to be perfectly candid with you – it is going to take a lot of work and a plethora of great products as well as lifestyle habits, so buckle up. If you want your skin to weather the season and come out swinging, you’re going to have to do the necessary legwork, have perseverance, be consistent and diligent, so let’s start, because if not now, when?

A double cleanse will save the day
More than during any other season, makeup-induced clogged pores can make a mess that will take you more than a month to fix. In order to avoid that, make sure you cleanse your face thoroughly until you see not even a smidge of makeup on your towel as you pat your face dry. Micellar waters are fine for the summer and even fall, but winter calls for heavier artillery. You need something creamy, like a milk makeup remover, coconut oil or the much raved about Camomile Sumptuous Cleansing Butter. It’s easy to use, leaves your skin nourished and hydrated – all the things we want – and most importantly, ready for the next step.
Your face wash needs to be superb, and by superb, we mean gentle but thorough. Something from the foamy wash family will do just fine, just make sure it contains zero alcohol. Even if you have oily skin, you do not want alcohol in your face wash. Now, one of the most highly recommended products for that extra mile is the Foreo Luna Play Plus, which works like a charm with gel and foam-based washes, removes every smidge of dirt and unclogs the pores. It has been tried and tested, and it gets all the thumbs up. Plus, it gently exfoliates the skin every time you use it, thanks to the bristles and the vibration, so you don’t have to do the extra exfoliating step.

Don’t even think about skipping this step
Investing in a high-quality serum is the best decision you can make, so make it. Serums are powerful active-ingredient packed products of light consistency. Their job is to penetrate to the dermis and make sure to hydrate the second layer of the skin, so your nourishment goes deeper than the epidermis. The best part is, there are different serums for different needs – some combat signs of aging, others provide hydration, and then there are those that battle acne, sun spots – so whatever is preventing your skin from getting its radiance and healthiness – the serum will combat it. Top things off with a good and nourishing winter face cream – as you still do need something to ‘feed’ the epidermis, and you’re done for the night.

The legwork
We did say that it will take more than topical solutions to get that skin to shine. The phrase that beauty comes from within has never resonated more true. As much as we need vitamins, antioxidant and coenzyme q10 in our topical solutions, we need them in our bodies as well. That’s why there are so many vitamin and amazing coq10 supplements for radiant skin. The drinkable skincare trend has never been more popular, and there is a good reason for it. We live hectic lives and we often don’t get the chance to get a sufficient amount of nutrients, even when we do turn to superfoods that are specifically designed to give us glowing skin. A little extra help is always welcome, and as medical professionals say “In many ways, you can accomplish a lot more with supplements than you can with creams”.

More beauty from within
Even though it’s winter in the Northern Hemisphere, there is no excuse to give up on your exercise routine. Yes, this is yet one of those challenging ways in which you get your skin to glow. The connection between the inner state of our body and our skin is inextricable, so if you’re sluggish on the inside, it will reflect on your skin. Therefore, pick a physical activity of your choice, get that body moving, break out a good sweat and get rid of all those toxins piling up inside your system. You will see the result in the form of light and beaming skin in no time.

Bonus tip:
If you do have a tendency to wear full coverage foundations, here’s a little trick that will make even them looking luminous without being greasy. Just a drop of your favorite facial oil will slightly dilute the product and make it go on much smoother and satin-y than usual. And, with the oil, you get the coverage and the skin nourishment. As for your daytime routine, make sure you repeat everything you do during the evening. Just, instead of the serum, apply your oil before the cream and you’re good to go.

5 Simple Things You Can Do To Feel Radiant Every Day

Tuesday, November 27th, 2018

Your daily routine probably revolves around completing your schedule and doing everything you can to reach your goals. Since that’s an enjoyable but long and tiresome process, it can often make you feel like less than a beauty queen. In turn, when you’re feeling under the weather and don’t find yourself as radiant as you used to, your confidence and motivation can waver. You don’t need to make major lifestyle changes to feel beautiful and happy again, though. There are five simple things to add to your routine which will freshen you up and keep you going.

Exercise, exercise, exercise

If you want to feel fresh and radiant, the best thing you can do for your body is to work out. Exercising will help you stay in shape, but will also rid you of negative energy. The tension you’ve been holding in your muscles will be released, and you’ll feel like a whole new person.

A lack of energy won’t be a problem anymore, either, as you’ll be sufficiently pumped up to face the whole day. So with the right workout plan, be ready to become a radiant, happy, and healthy woman who takes no prisoners.

Change up your skincare routine

Simply put, if your skin is glowing, you will be too. Blemishes, pimples, blackheads, and the bags under your eyes can make you feel less confident and more anxious. So, in order to regain your glow, take care of your skin. Start by drinking enough water and let it clear itself a little, then add something else to the routine.

The perfect remedy is a rejuvenating face mask. You can choose from the numerous face scrubs and masks you see at the store, or you can make a natural one at home. Whatever you decide, your skin will be grateful for it and it will show. A mask has the power to lift all the sweat and tiny spectacles of dirt you might have accumulated, making you shine once more. Your look can be completed with some make-up, but if you take care of your skin well enough, you won’t want it to interfere with your natural radiance.

Peak into your closet

Your wardrobe situation can be the difference between feeling powerful and sexy and being self-conscious and unenthusiastic about anything. Take a close look at your closet and see what you’re working with. Clear out the clothes you’ve stopped wearing or simply don’t like anymore, and keep only the ones that make you happy.

Spending some time thinking of creative ways to pair your clothes can also lift your spirits. Sometimes a good outfit is all you need to feel as radiant as ever. If making new combinations out of your old clothes didn’t help, shopping definitely will. Treating yourself to something new and showing it off the next day can definitely have the desired effect on your mood.

Take a look at your nutrition

The basis of a radiant look is how you eat. If you choose healthy foods that fuel your muscles with protein and aid your skin with vitamins, you’ll have the complexion you’re after. The food we eat daily is often full of chemicals which can make us bloated, tired, and cranky.

To cleanse your body, give it something healthy to digest. As well as cutting sugars and soda out of your diet, you can substitute your snack for a daily detox smoothie. Your favourite fruits and veggies will supply the vitamins, while a spoonful of tasty casein, along with other dairy products, will add the necessary protein for your muscles. After a bit, you’ll feel much lighter, more energetic, and absolutely radiant.

Make sure to get enough sleep
The simplest way to feel fresh and radiant is to get a full night’s sleep. This is something most people skip since there’s always something more important to do and some errand to run. Getting enough sleep, though, guarantees your body is rested and ready for the upcoming challenges.

This is the time where the body repairs itself and has enough tie to process the events of that day. Sleeping enough makes you more energetic and helps clear the bags under your eyes. It also gives you the motivation and strength to keep moving while making you feel like the most beautiful and radiant woman on Earth.

In conclusion, being radiant every day means you need to put yourself first. Taking care of yourself is the most important trick you can incorporate to your routine. When you’re healthy, happy, and feel pretty, the whole world is at your feet. Don’t give up on that feeling just because your schedule might get busy. You deserve to be the most radiant lady in your life, but only you can make that happen.

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!

Secrets Every True Beautista Knows

Thursday, August 16th, 2018

Today, it is known that women around the world tend to spend lots of money on bags, shoes, fake nails and hair extensions, but they somehow forget to take care of their skin. Being clean and nourished is more important than owning a designer bag, and you can achieve it by following these simple steps that won’t take too much time or money.

Small advice for the girls with both pale and dark complexion
Not everyone can tan easily and that can be frustrating sometimes. Many girls have fair complexion, but that shouldn’t bother them. Overexposure to sun isn’t healthy at all, since it damages your skin and causes the premature aging. You should always wear a SPF even when you’re not sunbathing by the pool or at the beach. Plus, you could give the self-tanning products a chance to get that natural shimmery and sun-kissed look. And always remember to accept yourself, ’cause you are beautiful just the way you are.

Hydration is your bestie
Having impeccable skin is essential, and you can achieve that through different skincare routines. Having professional skincare products is very important because your skin has to be nurtured and protected from an early age, so that your older self can enjoy. Therefore, you have to regularly exfoliate and moisturize your face and body. Exfoliation serums are widely used, and women love them because they make skin smoother and reduce clogged pores. Also, there are some natural ways to get rid of the blackheads and large pores. One of them is a bentonite clay mask. You can always make a DIY mask at home, and repeat the process until you see the wanted results. Pamper yourself with a nice body lotion, because it will soften the roughest body parts. Hand creams should be used throughout the whole year, and you should always keep one in your purse. Although we often tend to neglect our elbows and heels, they should matter too, especially in summer when we like to show off our fancy shoes and perfectly toned arms. These body parts often end up dry and cracked, which is rather unattractive. This occurs if you have naturally dry skin complexion, or if you don’t nurture healthy habits. Since no one likes to see the combination of your dry, cracked heels and a fresh pedicure, you should consider some simple treatments in order to repair such condition.

Get ready for the summer bombshell look
Since the summer season is still on, and you can’t take heavy makeup on your face, but you still choose not to go out bare faced, here’s what you can do. Apply a hydrating cream on your face, one that is suitable for your skin type. If your skin is too oily, go for the light, gentle moisturizer. If you happen to have pure and acne-free skin, then a little concealer under your eyes would do. Next, warm your face with a bronzer, but avoid using the dark shade, ’cause you don’t want to look orangey. Apply it to the areas where the sun normally hits your face, and apply it to your collar bones as well. As for the eyes, take the crayon and use it right at the bottom of the lash line. Keep your eyes open and look down while applying it. This will make your lash line thicker and darker. Like this, you won’t have to use the liquid eyeliner, and you will need just a mascara to make your eyes pop. For the perfect pout, avoid the matte lipsticks ’cause they dry out your lips and make them flaky. Take your preferable lip liner to make your lips look fuller, and then put on some lip gloss or a creamy rouge. Yes ladies, lip glosses are back, little less stickier and more improved, and we can thank Rihanna for getting them back. On the other hand, if you feel like wearing nothing on your lips, simply use a SPF lip balm and you are good to go.

Great hair do care
Our hair gets oversaturated by different chemical products, and it needs a detox from time to time. This can be achieved by using natural hair shampoos, and simple DIY masks that include shea butter, argan oil and coconut oil. Oh, and don’t forget to cut your hair often, since it promotes growth and a healthy look.

Natural brows are back
For the perfect eyebrows, stick to your natural shape and use a brow pencil optionally. Over-filled eyebrows are over for good, and your brows should always be brushed and slightly defined. You don’t need the Instagram brows on fleek or microblading techniques to frame your naturally gorgeous face.

Apart from the previously mentioned products, being positive and content plays a big part in every woman’s beauty regime. There’s no makeup that can conceal an unhappy face. So, make sure you take good care of both mind and body, and don’t forget to drink plenty of water.
