Bieber spoke to WWD, saying, “When we were developing the formulas, the labs said they were $100 formulas, but that’s exactly what we’re trying not to do,” she continued, “Expensive skin care formulas should be accessible.”

Bieber created products designed to hydrate and restore the skin. Rhode currently features: A Peptide Glazing FluidBarrier Restore Cream, and Peptide Lip Treatment. She compared the end result of using these products, especially the Peptide Glazing Fluid, to a glazed donut, saying to Byrdie, “Who doesn’t want to look glazed and dewy from head to toe?” Adding, “I want to look bitable.”

Rhode also provides the option to send back three empty containers to be recycled for free with a shipping label upon request.

There are a lot of other celebrity beauty and skincare brands out there, (Kim Kardashian just annouced SKKN), but Bieber told Byrdie: “In a world full of beauty brands, I think one that’s affordable with great formulas that will bring a vibe to your bathroom speaks for itself.”

Her bathroom skincare routine has always been important to the star, adding, “I’ve always loved the ritual of skincare. It’s a big part of self-care to me.”

Bieber will be joining YouTube’s second annual Beauty Festival which begins on June 16 through 17 and will be speaking about the new products as well as her routine.

Top 9 Tips For Choosing Skin Care Products

BEAUTYBEAUTY TRENDSBlog
top-9-tips-for-choosing-skin-care-products

 

The beauty industry is perennial, dynamic, and always expanding. Nowadays, the beauty industry is on a path towards achieving inclusivity and empowerment. While the approach toward the concept of beauty is evolving, the inherent structure of the beauty industry remains the same.  An integral part of the industry and what we consider essential for beauty is skincare. These days, skincare is considered the foundation for not just beauty, but also for attaining healthy, nourished skin. 

Just like the beauty industry, skincare has grown exponentially within the past few years. With the skincare market being oversaturated with all sorts of skincare products, it might be hard to figure out what works best for you. Choosing the right skincare products can significantly enhance your skin’s appearance and health, but conversely, the wrong choices can do a lot of damage. So, to help you make some sense of the variety of skincare products available, we have crafted a comprehensive guide about the do’s and don’ts of shopping for skincare.

  • Know Your Skin Type and Consult a Dermatologist

To benefit from the optimal effect of skincare products, you have to use ones that are specifically designed for your skin type and conditions. Understanding your skin type and what it needs will help you choose products more accurately. Choosing the wrong product can harm your skin. For instance, using products made for oily skin on dry skin can be counterproductive. So, do your research and figure out what your skin type is. 

It’s always advisable to consult a skin specialist to better understand your skin type. Since dermatologists are well-versed in the world of skin products, they can precisely recommend to you what to and what not to use. In general, there are three broad classifications of skin types:

Oily skin: For this skin type, it is advisable to use products that control excess sebum production and hydrate only the parts of the skin that need it. Products tailored for this skin type usually contain hyaluronic acid and benzoyl peroxide, which are two key ingredients that help maintain healthy skin.

Dry skin: Dry skin requires extra hydration to make it radiant and supple. Shea butter and lactic acid are key ingredients for helping this skin type.

Sensitive skin: When dealing with sensitive skin, you have to be extra careful while choosing your products since you don’t want to use anything that can easily irritate your skin. For people with sensitive skin, products containing aloe vera, oatmeal, chamomile, and shea butter seem to do the trick.

Of course, skin types can’t all be reduced to just 3 categories. There are many different skin types and several factors that affect them. A thorough understanding of what your skin type is should be the first step in your skincare journey.

  • What Are Your Goals

Once you know what your skin type is, you should focus on what you want for your skin: your end goals. What does your skin need? Do you wish to smooth out fine lines, or reduce your acne? Answering these questions will help you filter out what sort of products you require since every product is designed to address a particular aspect of skincare.

  • Ingredients: What to Seek and What to Avoid

Reading the list of ingredients used in skin care products can be daunting, especially if this is your first venture into the skincare world. Even if manufacturers try to simplify the products listed by throwing in words like “vitamin E” and “natural oils”, unless you’ve done your research, it can be hard to distinguish one ingredient from another. The ingredients used influence the impact of the product. It is therefore essential to understand what ingredients will work best for your skin. If you’re ever in a conundrum about ingredients, turn to products recommended by dermatologists, such as Unity Skincare. Their products are dermatologist-approved and a quick visit to their website will reveal a catalog of all their products and their respective contents. Since there’s no blueprint solution to perfect skin, you might have to try and test your way through. To do so, you’ll need to know the basics of what to avoid and what not to.

Ingredients that are generally good for most skin types: Glycerine, tocopherol (Vitamin E), L-ascorbic acid (Vitamin C), ceramides, hyaluronic acid, retinol, niacinamide (Vitamin B3).

Ingredients to steer clear from include added fragrances, perfume, parabens, sulfates, and formaldehyde. 

  • Number of Ingredients

When you figure out the ingredients that suit your skin and the ones that don’t, products with long lists of ingredients don’t seem intimidating. Moreover, once you chalk out the basics, you’ll find the confidence to experiment with new products. Don’t let long lists of ingredients discourage you from trying medical-grade products. Ingredients are listed by decreasing order of concentration, so make sure the active ingredients you seek are the first ones to be listed. 

  • Sunscreen

It’s always a good idea to use products that contain sunscreen. Harsh UV rays from the sun are a major detriment to your skin, so using moisturizers and creams that contain SPF is crucial. There are varying degrees of protection offered by different sunscreens, so take your time to peruse your options and choose the ones that provide maximum protection.

  • Develop a Skincare Routine

Persistence and repetition are the keys to achieving flawless, youthful skin. Using your products sporadically will not do your skin any good. For your skin to adjust to your skincare products, constant use is necessary. Besides, skin care products won’t make your skin healthy and glowing overnight; they need time to work and show their effects. Following a skincare daily routine will land you the results you seek. Your skincare routine doesn’t need to be extensive with 50 steps and 100 different products involved. But, some fundamental steps do need to be followed. Cleanse, hydrate, protect, treat, and repeat should be your daily mantra for good skin. You won’t get instantaneous results, but don’t let that deter you from following your regime daily.

  • Skincare Trends

Today’s internet culture is the hotspot for trends, and the skincare industry is a part of it. With rising numbers of products in the market and every other celebrity and influencer endorsing their brands, it becomes easy to fall prey to the hype. We’re not saying that popular products are all attempts at deceit. Many reputed brands provide top-quality products, but just because someone who has flawless skin recommends them doesn’t mean those products will work for you. Everyone’s skin is different, and what’s good for you might not be what’s trending.

Don’t take suggestions at face value; always test them out before sticking to them. You should also be cautious of products that claim to transform your skin overnight. Another thing to keep in mind is that to promote products, marketers often use words that might give you a skewed representation of what the product is. Just because a product says it is 100% natural doesn’t mean it actually is. There are no set rules and regulations surrounding the use of such words, so companies might use them liberally. Researching your products, no matter how popular they are, is the right way to go.

  • Patch Test

Doing a patch test before adding a product to your skincare routine is a good practice. Patch tests will help you identify which products or specific ingredients incite an allergic reaction or skin irritation. Never compromise on a patch test, even if it makes your product shopping process a bit lengthy. If a product causes any sort of negative reaction on your skin, then it’s not for you.

  • Do Your Research

Always research products before buying them. You can talk to a dermatologist or do your research online. There are online databases for product research such as CosDNA and EWG’s Skin Deep. Everything from manufacturing practices to health impacts can be found on such websites. 

Following these 9 tips will help you find the right products for your skin. With sufficient research and a proper understanding of your skin’s needs, you’ll be able to breeze through the skincare world with ease.

3 Summer Hair Extensions Styles You Need To Try Right Now

BEAUTYBEAUTY TRENDSBlogHAIRHAIR & BEAUTY
3-summer-hair-extensions-styles-you-need-to-try-right-now

 

Summer’s here and it’s time for all of us fashionistas to go out more and wear less. However, while you pay too much attention to your summer OOTD and OOTN, don’t forget to pay heed to your hairstyles. The summer season tends to affect all hair types differently, with certain hair feeling more voluminous and shiny, and other hair types suffering from frizzy and dull hair. However, there is nothing that a good conditioner and tape in extensions cannot fix!

Given below are three summer hairstyles involving hair extensions that you need to try right away:

  1. Mermaid waves

Mermaid waves are the easiest day-to-night hairstyles that you can make with hair extensions that will go with both your daytime and nighttime looks. To create seamless mermaid waves, place your tape in hair extensions like you normally would and use a curl hold spray in your hair. Rather than letting the spray dry off naturally, you would use a paddle brush and a blowdryer to dry the product in place. You would then separate your hair from the crown and create sections. You would then take a small horizontal piece of your hair with your curler facing downwards and twist wrap each section for about 8-10 seconds. Once done, you would catch the curl in the palm of your hand until it cools down, and then pull to create a wave. You would repeat this with all the remaining sections and then finish off with a shine spray.

  1.  A Top Messy Bun

Messy buns are a great summer hairstyle that goes with both your casual daytime looks and dressy evening wear. To start, you would need to figure out exactly where you would like the bun to be on the top of your head. Once you find that spot, tread back 3 inches on your scalp and grab a small section of hair to create a small ponytail which would act as a reference point for the bun. You would then go on to adding in your tape in extensions all around the said ponytail and make sure that you brush all of them prior. You would then use a rat tail comb to tease your bangs and add a bit of volume. This step would be followed by holding your bun into place and securing it with hair ties, and a whiff of hairspray at the end.

  1. High Ponytail

Ariana Grande’s signature high ponytail has been doing rounds for a few years but has recently gained heightened popularity due to many celebs sporting one at this year’s Met Gala. To achieve that unstaggering high ponytail, you would first need to brush out all of your hair and your hair extensions. This would be followed by playing your largest extensions in your hair followed by the smallest length. However, while you would normally place them downwards, you’d place them in the opposite direction since all of it will be going into your ponytail. Once all extensions are in place, use a paddle brush to bring your hair into a ponytail, and use some wax and bobby pins to secure all hair in place. 

Conclusion

The three given summer hairstyles will be an excellent addition to your summer looks, and all three of them are versatile and unique in their way. Mermaid waves, a messy bun, and a high ponytail are the only three hairstyles that you need to master using tape in extensions that are likely to help you serve a ton of looks.

What are the advantages of curly hair wigs

BEAUTY TRENDSBlogHAIRHAIR & BEAUTY
what-are-the-advantages-of-curly-hair-wigs

 

 

Curly wigs are realism at their finest. This style of hairpiece adds volume and depth to your look while being easy to maintain. Read on to discover the advantages of curly wigs. If you’re in the market for a new wig, consider these tips for caring for it properly. They’re ideal for folks who wish to make a striking debut without sacrificing their natural appearance.

Curly wigs are realism at its best

While curly wigs are not the most natural-looking hairstyle, they can be incredibly versatile. They can be worn wet for a defined finish or dry for a disco look. These hairpieces require some maintenance, but the extra time is worth it. Curly hair is closer to heaven, and you can recreate Diana Ross’s signature look at home with the right wig.

They are easy to maintain

It’s not difficult to take care of your curly wig. The key is to choose a gentle shampoo for the strands. This way, you won’t damage your wig. Curly wigs need a bit of moisture to remain healthy. Try using a sulfate-free shampoo and conditioner. Conditioner will also add more slips and prevent breakage.

They look natural

The latest hair trend is to wear curly wigs. These wigs are ideal for busy women because they require little styling. Besides, you can easily throw them over your head without any fuss. In addition, celebrities have been spotted with hair with the same natural curl pattern as your own. Women love curls and are attracted to them because of their natural look. A curly extension is a perfect way to preserve your natural curl pattern whenever you need to.

They add volume and depth to your look

When it comes to getting a beautiful wig, a curly one is a great choice. Curly wigs add volume and depth to your look while giving you a distinctive, unique style. If you have a round face, a wig with layers can help you conceal it and create a more youthful appearance. A long layered wig around the front draws the eye downwards and adds interest and dimension to your look.

They are easy to style

While curly wigs are easy to maintain, they don’t have to be difficult to style. There are numerous ways to keep your curly wig, such as alternating between straight and curly styles. Wigs with curls should be styled while still wet to avoid frizzing. You can use a diffuser to dry your wig. Once it is dry, pile a T-shirt on it to create a spiral effect.

What to expect in a beauty set?

BEAUTYBEAUTY TRENDSBlog
what-to-expect-in-a-beauty-set

 

 

Which items are usually found in beauty sets?

It’s super easy to get all you need in a ready-to-go beauty set but knowing what should be included in one is much harder than you would think, especially because you can also buy more specialized beauty sets that contain just eye-related products, for example. In this article, we’ll be listing the 8 most vital things you should make sure that your next beauty set contains.

Facial primer

An inclusion that might split opinions from the onset, a facial primer is an essential part of any beauty set as it can help make your makeup look fresh for the entirety of the day no matter what you get up to. Some women argue that it does little in terms of having a real impact, but we stand by what we say and think that it’s a key stage in any decent makeup routine. Which side of the primer argument do you find yourself belonging to?

A beauty sponge

Something that’s become super popular in recent years, the beauty sponge is now a staple in many beauty sets because of just how integral they are. We love beauty sponges because of how well you can blend your makeup with them. What else is great about them is that they’re super cheap, though there are also more premium options on the market.

Foundation

Foundation is one thing that can make or break a look, so getting a good foundation in a beauty set is the bare minimum that you should expect. It’s not just as easy as picking a basic color, though, as you also need to decide what kind of coverage you’re after and what skin type you have, as well as what kind of overall look you want. This will take some experimenting, but once you find what works, you can layer up and add other things on top.

Concealer

Perfect if you suffer from acne, eye bags, or any other blemishes, concealer is a must-have item for most women at the younger end of the age spectrum. There are a few different types of concealer, ranging from complete to sheer coverage, and finding out what is best will mean that you need to try a few different options before committing to anything. You should also see what works best with your skin type and try to avoid any irritation!

Bronzer

One for you ladies who prefer to go for that sunkissed look, bronzer is great if you want to add a little color to your complexion without looking like you’re overdoing it. The one thing to keep in mind is that you need to get the shade and tone right, as it can come across quite poorly if you choose a bronzer that is much darker than your natural skin tone. If you prefer that paler, more minimal look, then bronzer might not be what you need from a set.

Blush

An item that has been becoming more popular again in 2022, blush in softer pastel colors, has exploded onto the scene and doesn’t look like it’ll be going anywhere any time soon. When going for a new blush option, you should make sure that you don’t choose anything too bright or too unnatural looking.

Mascara

Perfect if you want to draw attention to your eyes, mascara is a staple in almost any beauty drawer and something you should expect in any half-decent beauty box. Because of how long mascara has been around, there are countless different variations that can either curl, thicken, or elongate your eyelashes dramatically. 

Highlighter

One of the more important options in this list, highlighter is absolutely key to a variety of different looks. It is super versatile, coming in a number of different forms, including liquid, powder, and cream. If you’re a highlighter novice, we recommend that you first go with powder and then slowly try the other types available on the market. The shade is a thing to consider, as getting this wrong can ruin the entire look you’re going for.

Will Smith banned from the Oscars for 10 years after slapping Chris Rock

BEAUTY TRENDSBlogNEWS

Will Smith (R) hit Chris Rock on stage during the Oscars ceremony, after Rock made a joke about Smith’s wife

Will Smith has been banned from the Oscars gala and other Academy events for 10 years after the US actor slapped comic Chris Rock at the Oscars.

In a statement, the Academy said the 94th Oscars had been “overshadowed by the unacceptable and harmful behaviour we saw Mr Smith exhibit on stage”.

Smith has apologised for his actions and resigned from the Academy.

The actor hit Rock for joking about his wife’s shaved head, a result of the hair-loss condition alopecia.

Less than an hour later, he was awarded the best actor award for his role in “King Richard”, where he played the father of tennis stars Venus and Serena Williams.

The Academy Of Motion Picture Arts and Science, which organises the awards ceremony, met virtually on Friday to discuss disciplinary action.

In its statement, it said banning Smith was aimed at protecting performers and guests and “restoring trust in the Academy”.

The Academy said that at the time of the slap it did not “adequately address the situation in the room” and had been “unprepared for the unprecedented”. It apologised for this.

It also thanked Rock for “maintaining his composure under extraordinary circumstances”.

In his resignation statement, Smith said he had “betrayed the trust of the Academy” and was “heartbroken” over his actions.

He added he would “fully accept any and all consequences for my conduct”.

His resignation means he will be unable to vote for future Oscars voters.

The Academy’s disciplinary review over the incident, originally scheduled for 18 April, was fast-tracked after Smith resigned.

Few have ever resigned from the academy. Four members – producer Harvey Weinstein, actor Bill Cosby, director Roman Polanski and cinematographer Adam Kimmel – have been booted over sexual misconduct allegations, while actor Carmine Caridi was expelled in 2004 for pirating screener videos given to him.

But the standards of conduct laid out by the film academy contained various disciplinary options for Smith, such as excluding him from future Oscars ceremonies, revoking his eligibility for awards or taking back his newly won Oscar.

Only one Oscar has ever been taken back; a feature called “Young Americans” won the best documentary honour in 1969 but was found to be ineligible for the award that year.

Late last month, actor Whoopi Goldberg – a member of the academy’s board of governor – predicted Smith would face “big consequences” but said “we’re not going to take that Oscar away from him.”

Beyond the Academy’s actions, at least two studios – Sony and Netflix – are pausing their projects with Smith.

Rock, who began his latest stand up comedy tour shortly after the Oscars telecast, has not commented publicly on the slap.

He told fans at a show last month that he is “still kind of processing what happened” and will talk about the incident “at some point”.

3 Pro Tips For Choosing A Facial Oil

BEAUTYBEAUTY TRENDSBlog
3-pro-tips-for-choosing-a-facial-oil

 

 

Several things might cause the skin barrier to get damaged over time, such as harsh cleansers, exfoliants, various cosmetics, or even an insufficient diet. If you want to protect your skin from damage, facial oils are the way to go. Facial oils feed the skin with fatty acids, antioxidants, and many nutrients. In addition to helping the skin repair itself, this also improves the skin’s ability to absorb other products. 

Adding facial oil to your daily routine is no longer a secret, and there are numerous advantages to doing so!  From well-known oils to exotic ones, there seem to be a lot of choices. Because of this, it can be challenging to choose the best one for your skin. If you’re looking for the perfect facial oil, keep these pro tips in mind: 

 

  • Know Your Skin Type 

Your skin type is the most crucial thing to consider when picking the best oil for you. If you choose the wrong oil, it can be a complete disaster for your skin barrier, causing it to become severely compromised. Here’s what you need to know: 

  • Oily – When it comes to skincare, one of the most common misconceptions is that people with oily skin shouldn’t use facial oils. Even though it might seem like a bad idea, facial oil can help replenish and balance the skin’s natural oil levels and keep it from drying out (which results in breakouts and irritation). Anyone with oily skin can benefit from jojoba, tea tree, squalene, and marula oils. 
  • Natural – As long as they don’t use too many heavy oils on your skin, anyone with this skin type should be fine. There are three good oils for this type: squalene, jojoba, and marula. Before applying your moisturizer, combine a few drops of facial oil with it. 
  • Dry – Are you aiming for a skin that’s firm and well-hydrated?  Many people use marula oil to make their skin less red, and keep it moisturized and soft. Those with this skin type can also benefit from squalene and coconut oils. 
  • Acne-Prone – When it comes to acne, one of the worst things a person can do is dry out their skin. Acne is a sign that your oil and water ratio is imbalanced. Lighter oils, like jojoba and tea tree oils, are good for alleviating acne. These facial oils have components that eliminate bacteria that cause acne and help remove dead skin cells.  
  • Combination – As the name suggests, people with combination skin have both dry and oily regions on their faces. Oily T-zone and less oily areas elsewhere describe this skin type, which has an uneven distribution of oil gland activity. Marula oil’s antibacterial properties are excellent for people with combination skin.  
  • Sensitive – When trying new products, people with sensitive skin often worry that these will irritate their skin. Well, squalene is your best friend!  Olives provide the raw material for squalene, a small molecule oil that may be easily absorbed by all skin types, especially sensitive ones. 

 

  • Do The Smell And Touch Test 

If you notice that the scent of the facial oil is overpowering, it may contain artificial fragrances to make the product smell more appealing. These overpowering fragrances may lead you to believe you’re purchasing high-end natural skincare products, when, in reality, you’re getting products that could be irritating to your skin and harmful to your health.

So, check the ingredients on the product. Do not buy the product if it contains fragrance or perfume. However, check labels carefully because some products conceal scents with other substances to portray an ‘unscented’ sensation. 

Additionally, some facial oils might add substances, such as mineral or silicone, as the oil base to generate a light, silky feel to alleviate people’s dread of greasiness associated with face oil. Thus, check the ingredients list to verify if any of the substances mentioned earlier were added to create a bogus skincare effect before finalizing your purchase. 

 

  • Keep An Eye Out For Fillers 

Even if you know that a particular face oil is good enough to smell and touch, you can still recheck the ingredients list and see if you can find the word ‘water’ as the first or second ingredient. This may imply that preservatives, such as BHA/BHT or parabens, have been added. 

In addition to artificial colors and -PEG surfactants, some products also contain scentless yet harmful ingredients. If you have sensitive skin, these additives may be dangerous. As a result, you should avoid facial oils that contain active agents, such as PEG-40 hydrogenated castor oil, PEG-6 caprylic, or capric glycerides. 

 

Conclusion

 

As you can see, you should use facial oils to prevent damage to your skin. Oils offer fatty acids, antioxidants, and several other nutrients to the skin. Besides helping the skin heal itself, this enhances the skin’s ability to absorb other products. Many products are available out there, so choosing the right one for your skin can be difficult. Refer to this post the next time you find yourself in such a situation.

Made from fresh Himalayan apples, nettle leaf, palmetto extracts, vitamin b5, almond oil, and argan oil, this incredible product transforms your hair from root to tip, balances its pH levels, and promotes healthy hair growth. 

When paired with WOW Coconut Oil Conditioner, you are better able to restore and moisturize your hair. Rich in vitamins, minerals, and fatty acids, this product is infused with a series of natural and bioactive materials such as virgin coconut and avocado oils. 

Both this shampoo and conditioner will leave your damaged hair feeling replenished, smoother, stronger, and glossier.

Protect Your pH Balance 

Another area that you should pay particular attention to in terms of ensuring your health and well-being is your vaginal area. Doctors recommend using The Killer, a set of boric acid suppositories which are intended to treat and prevent any potential vaginal infections. 

This product helps by balancing pH, maintaining healthy yeast levels, and supporting healthy vaginal flora so that this area of your body feels fresh and smells its best. 

Made with the single and fast-working product of boric acid, these suppositories are free of fragrance, essential oils, and other additives that might be bad for your vaginal environment. 

Experts recommend supporting your vaginal health by inserting one suppository into the vagina in the evening just before bedtime, after sex, when you are experiencing irritation from pH imbalance, or even during the last days of your period – you can do this as needed for a period of up to 14 days. But be sure to insert the product only after you have gone to the washroom and emptied your bladder.

Restore Your Skin Using a Shower Sponge

Another key strategy to ensuring the restoration of your outer beauty is to make sure to regularly exfoliate by using a shower sponge

Through the process of exfoliation, you are able to remove dead skin cells from the outer layer of your skin and, as such, improve the appearance of your skin. 

That said, it is important to make sure that you are exfoliating safely because if done improperly, exfoliation could damage your skin and lead to accelerated and increased redness or acne breakouts.

 It is also important to remember that exfoliation is not meant for every skin type. 

To make sure that this is an appropriate strategy for you, before choosing an exfoliation method, make sure to consider your skin type. 

Experts agree that if you have sensitive skin, exfoliating might sting or burn your skin. In the case of dry skin, it may lead to flaky, itchy, or rough skin after you use exfoliating products. And even in the case of oily skin, it could leave your skin looking and feeling shiny and greasy. 

While there are many options for exfoliating, it’s best to try this manual technique of using a shower sponge rather than using chemical exfoliation. 

Mechanical exfoliation – which makes use of a brush or sponge to scrub away and remove dead skin cells – ensures that you can temper how much dead skin you are removing. Chemical techniques, however, use chemicals such as alpha and beta hydroxy acids to dissolve dead skin cells. 

For skin types that are sensitive, doing chemical exfoliation can actually lead to very serious skin challenges.

Care For Your Body Using Gua Sha

Another great and natural health routine is implementing the process of Gua Sha in your daily health and well-being practices. 

Gua Sha, a traditional Chinese healing method, entails using a smooth-edged stone-like tool and can be used by anyone and not simply a skin professional. 

To begin the process, you should first put oil on your skin; then, you can apply the tool to scrape and press your skin in long downward strokes. Be sure to note that this process and motion can raise petechiae – that is, small, red, rash-like dots that show under your skin. 

While this process can be used on your face, it should not be used with the same intensity as other areas of the body. In other areas – namely, the back, neck, buttocks, arms, and legs – Gua Sha is used to treat chronic pain alongside other natural medicine methods such as herbal medicine, massage, acupuncture, and heat therapy.

To use this process in your daily routine, begin using the tool gently and then gradually add more pressure to the strokes. 

By doing so, you are able to create a “lifting” effect on your skin which is believed to lead to a healthier blood flow in the body and a way to lessen toxins that are stuck inside the body. Ultimately, the hope is to promote greater healing. 

Experts agree that some additional benefits of Gua Sha include: lowering the amount of liver inflammation that is caused by the hepatitis B virus, easing migraine pain and chronic neck pain, improving the tics that occur with Tourette’s syndrome, limiting the symptoms of perimenopause (abnormal periods, hot flashes, sleep issues, and mood changes), and easing the pain of breast fullness (especially while breastfeeding).

How Can Tech Gadgets Enrich Your Makeup Studio?

BEAUTYBEAUTY TRENDSBlog
how-can-tech-gadgets-enrich-your-makeup-studio

Technological advancements have revolutionized the makeup industry. From the invention of makeup to different techniques used in applying, there is a huge difference in how we look today compared to earlier years. We will explore how technology has led to many changes and innovations seen in this field, while also listing some ways it can enrich your makeup studio!

Smart Lighting

Small LED lights are incredibly affordable, especially when compared to other makeup lighting solutions. They are also easy to install, compact, and lightweight. As a result, they are perfect for the makeup artist on the go! These smart lights that you can see at CustomControls.co.uk are also energy efficient which is great for those with higher electricity bills. Having these lights will allow users to see their features in detail. Even little details like blemishes or dark circles can be seen more clearly, allowing you to cover them up seamlessly without any areas that look unnatural or harsh. Since these lamps can be directed at certain parts of your face or body, you’ll be able to focus on one specific area as well as your skin tone perfectly.

Ring Lights

Ring lights are known to be one of the most popular lighting solutions for every makeup artist. It is also considered by many as a staple item in any makeup kit bag due to its multiple purposes and benefits. One example of these benefits is the option for users to choose between different color temperatures when applying makeups, which can help provide more accurate results when matching with natural light sources. Other ring lights have the ability to adjust to three different color temperatures all at once! Unlike regular front-back facing bulbs, ring lights emit 360 degrees around them so that you get even lighting on your face no matter where you move or turn your head. You’ll never have harsh shadows or glares ruining your pictures ever again. This light will embrace every part of your face evenly.

Mobile Charging Stations

Having a mobile charging station will allow you to charge all of your devices on the go! This comes in handy, especially when traveling or if you are looking for new ways to help save energy. You can also keep track of how much battery power you have left on your gadgets, which is beneficial when choosing between different apps and functions that need more juice than others. It can extend your device’s life since it may reduce the number of times that you plug into an outlet for replacement purposes. Having this mobile charging station will ensure that there are fewer things to worry about when working with clients since nothing crucial has run out of battery power yet.

Remote Controls

Being able to control your lights, TV screens, projectors, and other devices all from one place with just a click or tap is incredibly convenient! This can be achieved by using different types of remote controls that are available in the market today. Just imagine having to shuffle through multiple remotes on your table every time you want to turn something on or off. That changes once you begin utilizing these advanced devices. The downside of this convenience however is the inability to reprogram these remotes if lost or broken which can become an issue if they are not properly taken care of. Make sure that whoever takes care of them knows how important it is to pay attention when using them while also keeping track of where they put them back since there is no way for users to replace what they’ve lost.

Body Lift Drapes

There are different materials that body lift drapes can be made from depending on the preferences of the user and their clients. It is a good idea to stay away from having plastics of any kind since they can emit fumes that may irritate if inhaled for long periods of time. Another material you’ll want to avoid has a pattern or has been sprayed with perfumes, chemicals, or other odors since it will be near your face – definitely not an ideal situation! If you need something quick and convenient, there are also disposable options available so that you don’t have to worry about cleaning up after every use. These types of drapes are usually more affordable as well, but won’t last as long as the reusable ones.

Ergonomic Furniture

Upholstered furniture can be very comfortable, but it is important to consider the materials used to make them. Make sure that they are free of any seams or stitching that can potentially jab into you while you’re seated on them. The weight capacity of this type of furniture should also be checked before purchase since it may not hold up for as long as you need it to, especially if you or your clients are plus-sized individuals. Other factors to take note of are the ability to use different reclining positions and if there are armrests or not. These features will allow people who sit down for hours upon hours every day to have an easier time getting up and moving around their shop without feeling too fatigued throughout the day.

High Definition Cameras

Nowadays, people are so used to taking photos with their phone cameras that they forget about other types of lenses out there. These DSLR or mirrorless cameras can capture many different types of images at once. For example, you can take a wide-angle photo that includes the entire room with just one click! The quality of these lenses is much better than smartphone cameras as well since they provide more clarity and sharper details. One downside is the price tag. These types of cameras do not come cheap, especially if you want to use certain features like zooming in or changing the aperture size. If budget isn’t an issue for your studio, however, then it will be best to invest in this kind of camera so that you’ll have a higher chance of attracting potential clients who need professional high-resolution photos for their portfolios or websites.

Technological advancements in the makeup industry have revolutionized the way people achieve their desired look. From how we apply our makeup to new devices used, there is a huge difference between then and now. Technology continues to advance at a rapid pace, and with proper utilization, you can have a makeup studio your clients will love.

The Latest Trends In The Skincare Industry

BEAUTYBEAUTY TRENDSBlog
the-latest-trends-in-the-skincare-industry

 

If there’s one industry in this entire world that can’t be defined simply by its offerings, then it has to be skincare. There are so many different categories and subcategories under this broad term that it’s not practical to define it as one single thing. One of the most highly valued and rapidly emerging industries, skincare has so many offerings under its ambit that it’s almost impossible to pinpoint any single latest trend. However, if you’re a skincare enthusiast who likes to know about every new innovation, or you’re an entrepreneur interested in launching these products yourself, it’s critical to know what’s new and what’s going out. 

In this article, we’re going to take a look at some of the most rapidly emerging trends in the skincare industry that are sure to capture a huge percentage of the market in the coming years. This article will help you understand which products and devices are most appreciated by the people who use them and the reasons behind them. So without further ado, let’s get to it and find out all about the newest and most innovative trends of this year.

1. Skincare Supplements

Supplements come in various forms that can either be consumed or applied directly to the skin. While topical supplements are argued by some to be less effective than oral ones, no one can argue about the sheer number of supplements available on the market. There are many different types of supplements with differing compositions but most of them consist of some essential vitamins, minerals, oils, or some other new and trending compound. These supplements work great as they directly affect the deficiencies and cure the various skin ailments internally. While some brands promote their supplements in the form of pills and capsules, others choose to do it with gummies and powders. 

2. Microbiome Products

In a similar vein to the previous entry, we have another amazing category of products which is the microbiome product line that works the same way as oral consumables. The only difference- which is quite significant, is that these products are made of different probiotics to help your skin maintain its sheen and clarity with the help of beneficial bacteria. The microbiome supplements work great as you don’t have to worry a lot about your daily skincare routine and you can get away with minimal maintenance. This is all possible because your skin microbiome will be healthy and flourishing because of the probiotics. Most skin issues can cause the microbiome to get disturbed and it’s easily fixable by using these supplements. 

3. Microcurrent Devices

A revolutionary new innovation in the field of skincare is the use of microcurrent devices. While many people don’t trust that these devices can work at first, they get easily convinced once they use them consistently. These devices are useful for contouring your skin and concealing the imperfections that come with aging and time. The great thing is that you can even ditch your parlor visits for a microcurrent device, and it may just be as effective. It will release very small electric pulses that help stimulate your skin and the underlying muscles which help improve the flow of blood and oxygen into your cells which makes them recover from years of damage. The effects of using these devices are so significant because the pulses help your skin recover from the inside as compared to the other treatments that operate only on a surface level. 

4. Scalp-Care Products

Not many people know this but their scalps need just as much care as their facial skin. After all, the skin on our heads is skin as well and it needs just as much care as any other part of the body. If you care for your scalp properly then you’ll also be able to grow much better hair. This is so because the harmful products that we apply on our scalps can, in turn, also damage our hair and can cause issues like hair loss, dandruff, hair thinning, and much more. No one wants to see their hair disappear right in front of their eyes and owing to the current condition of pollution and climate change, hair fall has become a very severe issue among many people. This is why the entire skincare industry is shifting its focus towards better scalp care as it plays an important role in a person’s appearance as well. 

5. Organic Products

The new trend that’s taking the world by storm seems to be organic products. Everyone wants to get their hands on the latest organic products because of the novelty and benefits associated with them. Almost all the products ranging from supplements, vegetables, fruits, dairy, and even skin care are available in organic forms. The biggest reason why many people are choosing organic products is that they want to be safe from all the adulterants and toxic compounds added to traditional products. While the traditional products may be a lot cheaper and highly effective, it comes at a cost that’s extracted from the user in the long term. However, organic products don’t have any of these caveats associated with them and you can use them without having to worry about their long-term damage. If you want to get the best products for your skin as well as your health, go organic because there are no other skincare products that can compete with their current popularity. 

These are some of the most iconic and latest skincare trends prevalent in the industry right now. Even though there might be many other products that are taking hold of the market, these are the ones that have been trending for quite some time. The skincare trends that we just discussed are dominating because of their novelty and it doesn’t seem like they’re going away anytime soon. There can be multiple other entries on this list but it’s not possible to include them all in just one single article, this is why we only discussed the ones that are the most popular. However, it’s also important to remember that you should stay up-to-date with the trends as they frequently keep on shifting in and out of focus.

Top Tips From Beauty Experts For Both Men And Women To Look Trendy And Fashionable

BEAUTYBEAUTY TRENDSBlog
top-tips-from-beauty-experts-for-both-men-and-women-to-look-trendy-and-fashionable

Trends come and go. It can be hard to stay on top of what’s in and what’s out. If you are looking to up your style and fashion game, you’re in the right place. Here are the top tips from beauty experts for both men and women. 

Use SPF 

Okay, we know you’ve heard this a million times, but it still rings true. Protecting your skin from sun damage is key to retaining good skin. Good skin is an asset to any outfit and will help you look younger and healthier. If you don’t currently include SPF in your skincare routine, it’s time to add it and get ritualistic about it. You need to apply SPF every day, even if you aren’t going out. No, it’s not a waste! Unless you live in a windowless house, UV rays are still coming in through your windows. 

SPF must be applied, especially if you are using actives in your skincare routine, such as azelaic acid or retinol. If you’re using skincare with any active ingredients, SPF must be your top priority. Otherwise, you risk causing serious damage to your skin. This damage can take a lot of time, effort, and money to repair. Do yourself a favor and prevent yourself from suffering easily preventable damage. 

Choose Flattering Clothing 

Whatever your gender is, flattering clothing is a must. This doesn’t mean it needs to be tight or fitting, it just means it should flatter your style and body. Everyone has a different body, and the same item can look different on people depending on their individual body shape. Embrace this! Use this to guide you with the clothing you buy and the outfits you wear, choose to flatter the parts of your body that you like and want to accentuate. Even if this is something small like your collarbones. If you’re a fan of your collarbones and want to flaunt them a little, choose tops that subtly show them off. Clothing can make a huge difference to how we feel about ourselves, so focus on choosing fits that you truly love. This energy will truly radiate and present you as someone confident and content. 

Hair 

Your hair can be a great accessory. Healthy-looking hair is a real asset to any outfit. Look after your hair based on your individual hair type. If you have dry hair, focus on moisturizing products and avoid unnecessary heat damage. If you have curly hair, choose products that cater to curly hair. Eat well to maintain healthy hair, take supplements if necessary, and get regular trims. If you want some extra help, this site showcases the different haircuts you can get to maintain healthy hair. They are often more affordable than you might think, and regular trims help keep your hair healthy. It will get rid of split ends and help it grow well. 

Pay Attention To The Details 

The details are what give your outfits that X factor. If you’re wearing a shirt, tuck it in well, or go for a half in, half outlook. Whatever your style, pay attention to the small details. Wear complementary accessories and ensure your outfit is well balanced. For example, if you have a lot of print or color going on in the clothing, don’t overdo it with the accessories. Similarly, a plainer outfit can be enhanced with jewelry or hats. Of course, if that’s your personal style you can certainly go crazy with textures, colors, and patterns. Just note where you can balance out an outfit to enhance it a little more and look more trendy. 

Dress For The Occasion 

Dress appropriately for the occasion. If you are going to work, try to look smart and presentable while also weaving in your personal style. This could be something like statement jewelry or funky socks. Dress the way you want others to perceive you, if you have an important meeting, dress the way you want to come across. This can often give you a pep in your step and help you out in ways you don’t even realize. Your outfits and fashion choices make a much bigger statement than just being items of clothing that cover your body. They convey personal taste, personality, thoughts, and ideas. Allow yourself to be expressed through your choices. 

If you are looking to make more trendy and fashionable choices, use this as a guide. Take good care of yourself, both inside and out. Choose pieces that reflect you and the person you want to be. You can choose to honor yourself today and the person you aspire to become. Pay attention to the details of your outfit as this can make all the difference.

Meghan Markle Has the Most Popular Beauty Routine on Google

BEAUTYBEAUTY TRENDSBlog
meghan-markle-has-the-most-popular-beauty-routine-on-google

 

According to a new study analyzing Google News data by Australian beauty retailer RY, it turns out a shit-ton of us have been asking, and writing, and reading about her beauty routine. After studying the keywords “hair,” “makeup,” and “skincare” alongside a list of 232 celebrities’ names, the subsequently crunched numbers revealed that Markle’s beauty regimen spurred the creation of a casual 88.5 million news articles between April 2020 and March 2021.

With those numbers, the Duchess of Sussex has been crowned “most newsworthy celebrity beauty icon,” beating out famously famous Kim Kardashian (71,280,000 articles), French-braid influencer Taylor Swift (60,652,000 articles), Khloé Kardashian (39,719,000 articles), and noted beauty enthusiast Jennifer Lopez (28,724,000 articles). Rounding out the top ten are Kourtney Kardashian (25,396,000 articles), Beyoncé (21,637,000 articles), Markle’s sister-in-law and repeat No. 1 U.K. beauty icon Kate Middleton (21,637,000 articles), aspirational face-washer Kylie Jenner (17,769,000 articles), and bangs influencer Britney Spears (16,186,000 articles).

Considering the majority of what we know of Markle’s glow-y beauty routine is from her pre-royal Suits-era interviews, now-defunct Tig posts (RIP), and her makeup artists, it makes sense that millions are so intrigued about how she gets her skin and hair and makeup so good. If Google brought you here from such a query, my condolences, but for your troubles: She’s previously sung the praises of lots of Tatcha goodnessOribe dry texturizing sprayJan Marini in generalNARS Orgasm blushRevitaLashTouche ÉclatNivea firming lotion, and a whole lot of Dior (on special occasions). But you might want to keep Googling; there’s a good 80 million or so articles out there that can better help.

Botox: The Pros And Cons

BEAUTYBEAUTY TRENDSSKIN CARE

Botox: The Pros And Cons

Since Botox’s invention in the 1980s, both women and men started to obsess over the idea of injectables for younger-looking skin. Aesthetically, getting a Botox injection does feel like you are conquering the aging process. Botox is a neurotoxin that prevents temporary communication among your nerves and muscles. It paralyzes the injected muscle for three to six months. Knowing that however, is the process worth it? Here are the pros and cons to help you grasp a fuller picture.

Pros Of Getting Botox

Your Face Will Not Wrinkle If You Stop

Many people fear that once they quit Botox, their faces will start to wrinkle immensely. If the muscles are not used while being injected with Botox, the aging process will still be delayed. It decreases movement that reduces wrinkle formation, to begin with.

 

In other terms, you will not be able to grow lines overnight, based on how long you have maintained a Botox routine; you will always enjoy looking years younger than your age.

The Commitment Bar Is Low

The good news is that Botox usually lasts 3 to 6 months. So if there is a little accident during the procedure, your affected area will eventually fade out. Botox gradually disappears and the customer will decide whether another Botox treatment is needed.

 

The lifelong side effects of Botox errors are not documented, errors by the hands of a seasoned and qualified aesthetic doctor are very rare. It is a temporary procedure after all.

Room For Modification

Botox cannot be reversed as opposed to hyaluronic fillers for example. Yet, you may be able to change it if you are dissatisfied with the outcomes. Additional Botox can be strategically injected to achieve facial balance and enhance desired results in cases of asymmetry and under correction. On the other hand, it is harder to overcorrect or wrongly position the product.

Skin Care Boost

Injectables will improve the effectiveness of your skincare routine as they can keep your skin safe and avoid premature aging. It will allow your skincare products to go more evenly on your skin since they smooth your fine lines. You may note a younger look, and you may not need more Botox as you get older.

Botox Can Rejuvenate  Skin

Botox injections may do more than just paralyze facial muscles to produce a younger look. New research indicates that anti-aging therapies can also reverse the face skin’s clock and allow it to spread and recede. You can search for guaranteed Botox and injection services through this site which explains that Botox treatments seem to foster elastin and collagen production, a couple of proteins that tighten young skins, firmly and flexibly.

Being Still Is Not Always Bad

According to Sara Garone, a freelance health writer and nutritionist, she mentions that it seems like everyone is afraid of Botox, one is afraid to feel like a robot without speech. It is unbelievable that some of one’s face does not move.

 

In Sara’s experience, it was a kind of consolation that her brows could not work together when her husband made a snarky remark or when her children were smearing couscous onto the carpet. She mentions that we have emotional weight on our heads. We have all probably heard that just smiling more will make us feel happier. It turns out that this is not the usual case.

 

In a 2009 study, the Journal of Cosmetic Dermatology trusted sources reviewed that when people get Botox, they do sense a decreasing sense of negativity.

Botox Can Be Used For Medical Purposes

Botox is not only related to beauty. Botox injections can also help in treating chronic migraines, various muscle conditions, cervical dystonia (neck spasms), overactive sweat (hyperhidrosis), and many more chronic conditions. It is extremely important to get in touch with a registered expert to help with such needs.

Cons To Consider

Bruising May Happen

Bruising is a rare occurrence following treatment with Botox, although some can occur. After applying Botox even the best doctors may cause the patient to bruise. It also happens if the needle knocks a blood vessel, allowing blood to flow under the surface of the skin and making the surface look reddish and/or violet.

 

To get rid of a bruise resulting from an injection, it is recommended to apply a cold compress to the spot where the blood vessels below the skin are constricted. Cold pads will also alleviate any pain after the application of your dermal filler or Botox. After your cosmetic care, you need to continue to evade overall pain relievers, such as NSAIDs and aspirin, to minimize the danger of bleeding. Accordingly, the application of several topical active ingredients to your skin can minimize the formation of bruising or speed up the treatment process.

 

According to a 2013 article, released in The Journal of Clinical and Aesthetic Dermatology – Arnica, vitamin K and Bromelain are the most commonly used topical agents that help minimize bruising. It may also be beneficial to use arnica or to eat pineapple (bromelain source).

Can Be Pricey

While Botox injections are undoubtedly expensive, the price of cosmetic surgery or injectable fillers such as Juvederm or Restylane is far from reach. With around $10 to $15 per unit, the 8 to 20 units of a typical frontal treatment can cost between $200 and $300.

Results Are Not Instant

In general, Botox results can be seen within days after the injection. Professional facial plastic surgeons usually state that most patients will see results within 10 to 14 days. Although the results depend on factors such as treated area and injection duration, Trujillo reports that the results are usually 3 months long.

 

In conclusion, Botox can take your skin to the next level, but it will not make your wrinkles magically disappear. If someone wants to try Botox, it is a good idea to explore risks, costs, and other factors with a healthcare provider. It is always advised to deal with Registered Nurses and Licensed Estheticians as Botox should be treated as an investment.

Botox: The Pros and Cons

Since Botox’s invention in the 1980s, both women and men started to obsess over the idea of injectables for younger-looking skin. Aesthetically, getting a Botox injection does feel like you are conquering the aging process. Botox is a neurotoxin that prevents temporary communication among your nerves and muscles. It paralyzes the injected muscle for three to six months. Knowing that however, is the process worth it? Here are the pros and cons to help you grasp a fuller picture.

Pros of Getting Botox

Your Face Will Not Wrinkle If You Stop

Many people fear that once they quit Botox, their faces will start to wrinkle immensely. If the muscles are not used while being injected with Botox, the aging process will still be delayed. It decreases movement that reduces wrinkle formation, to begin with. 

In other terms, you will not be able to grow lines overnight, based on how long you have maintained a Botox routine; you will always enjoy looking years younger than your age. 

The Commitment Bar is Low

The good news is that Botox usually lasts 3 to 6 months. So if there is a little accident during the procedure, your affected area will eventually fade out. Botox gradually disappears and the customer will decide whether another Botox treatment is needed. 

The lifelong side effects of Botox errors are not documented, errors by the hands of a seasoned and qualified aesthetic doctor are very rare. It is a temporary procedure after all.

Room for Modification

Botox cannot be reversed as opposed to hyaluronic fillers for example. Yet, you may be able to change it if you are dissatisfied with the outcomes. Additional Botox can be strategically injected to achieve facial balance and enhance desired results in cases of asymmetry and under correction. On the other hand, it is harder to overcorrect or wrongly position the product.

Skin Care Boost

Injectables will improve the effectiveness of your skincare routine as they can keep your skin safe and avoid premature aging. It will allow your skincare products to go more evenly on your skin since they smooth your fine lines. You may note a younger look, and you may not need more Botox as you get older.

Botox Can Rejuvenate  Skin

Botox injections may do more than just paralyze facial muscles to produce a younger look. New research indicates that anti-aging therapies can also reverse the face skin’s clock and allow it to spread and recede. You can search for guaranteed Botox and injection services through this site which explains that Botox treatments seem to foster elastin and collagen production, a couple of proteins that tighten young skins, firmly and flexibly.

Being Still Is Not Always Bad

According to Sara Garone, a freelance health writer and nutritionist, she mentions that it seems like everyone is afraid of Botox, one is afraid to feel like a robot without speech. It is unbelievable that some of one’s face does not move. 

In Sara’s experience, it was a kind of consolation that her brows could not work together when her husband made a snarky remark or when her children were smearing couscous onto the carpet. She mentions that we have emotional weight on our heads. We have all probably heard that just smiling more will make us feel happier. It turns out that this is not the usual case. 

In a 2009 study, the Journal of Cosmetic Dermatology trusted sources reviewed that when people get Botox, they do sense a decreasing sense of negativity.

Botox Can Be Used for Medical Purposes

Botox is not only related to beauty. Botox injections can also help in treating chronic migraines, various muscle conditions, cervical dystonia (neck spasms), overactive sweat (hyperhidrosis), and many more chronic conditions. It is extremely important to get in touch with a registered expert to help with such needs.

Adopting a Zero-Waste Beauty Routine: What You Need to Know

From natural remedies to hundred-dollar beauty products, each of us has our way of feeling like a beauty queen. Regardless of the type of products you use, have you ever considered following a zero-waste beauty routine? Thanks to our raised level of awareness, many people have started realizing how simple little things can make a big difference in the world. However, while most of us take good care of limiting single-use plastics and separating our trash, we rarely think about how our beauty routine falls into the equation. 

 

In case it’s your first time hearing the term, this is what a zero-waste beauty routine is all about. 

What is Zero-Waste Beauty?

Zero-waste beauty is a relatively new term, also referred to as clean beauty, green beauty, and eco-friendly beauty. To understand where this movement originated from, let’s take a quick look through the beauty and cosmetics industry stats. 

 

According to a research published in Forbes magazine, more than 120 billion units of packaging, mostly plastic, are produced by the global cosmetics industry, with 70% of this plastic tossed as trash in the landfills. Moreover, we lose 18 million acres of forest each year to the process. We’re not even talking about the volatile organic compounds (VOC) that increase air pollution or the discarded makeup wipes. Don’t even get us started on the rest of the accessories. 

 

This predicament gave rise to an eco-friendly movement that raises awareness about how our regular beauty routines are detrimental to the environment. As a result, we came up with zero-waste beauty, a routine where you get to feel like a queen in both body and soul. 

How to Adopt a Zero-Waste Beauty Routine

Unfortunately, turning to zero-waste beauty is not as easy as it sounds. It’s going to demand some effort on your part, but here’s how you can get started.

1. Use Fewer Amounts

You may be used to fixing your makeup every couple of hours, but is that absolutely necessary? If you think about it, most of the time, your makeup is already on point. It doesn’t need any fixing; we’re merely used to the habit. The next time you find yourself itching to fix your already perfect makeup, remind yourself of the zero-waste routine. On a different note, how many of us buy products we don’t need? If you don’t need it, then you probably shouldn’t get it. On the plus side, you’ll be relieving your skin from these harmful chemicals and saving on money at the same time. 

2. Avoid Single-Use Products

There are multiple single-use products that we discard mindlessly, even though we can easily find much more efficient alternatives. Think about all the makeup wipes, cotton swabs, exfoliating pads, and sheet masks. Instead, look for a sustainable solution that’s easy to clean and re-usable. Again, think of the money you’ll save in the process!

3. Check the Ingredients

How often do you check the ingredient list on a makeup product before you purchase it? Have you ever even done it before? It’s shameful to admit that most of us rarely do, but we can always start somewhere. You’ll want to check the ingredients for any micro-plastic products that may be included in the makeup, but that may be tricky unless you know what names to look for. While you’ll rarely find the word “plastic,” you may encounter other synonyms like microbeads, microspheres, or copolymers. 

4. Look into Packaging and Shipping

Perhaps the most obvious form of plastics to identify in a zero-waste beauty routine is the packaging. After all, we know what to look for. Unfortunately, the amount of waste that’s packed into the packing of most beauty products is appalling. As a rule of thumb, the best option is to avoid packaging altogether, which you can control if you’re shopping in person. If you’re used to ordering your makeup online, make sure to check their packaging and shipping options, or contact customer service representatives to inquire about zero-waste options if their website isn’t clear on where they stand. 

5. Recycle, Refill, or Reuse

What happens to the products’ containers once you’ve used up the makeup? Normally, we just throw them away, but you should start having second thoughts. Unless you’re sure that the container is completely environmentally-friendly, explore alternate options. Many cosmetics brands have started providing makeup without waste and adding the option of refilling your empty containers once they run out. Check with your makeup supplier for this type of option; it’s definitely the most beneficial of all. In case they don’t offer refilling services, consider another use for the container instead of discarding it. 

6. Don’t Waste Any Products 

By this point, you may be utterly tempted to throw all your current makeup away – but don’t, not yet. You’ve already invested in this makeup, so use it to the fullest until it runs out, after which you can explore eco-friendly options to dispose of it safely. 

7. Look for Natural Alternatives

There’s a reason why many women have started advocating for natural beauty. While natural beauty normally steers clear from chemical makeup products, it still involves using natural remedies to get similar beauty results. If you’re able to switch your whole makeup routine to depend on easily available natural products that don’t involve any waste, then you should definitely do it. Remember to avoid any natural oils or products that are wrapped or stored in plastic containers. 

 

 

On a completely different note, investing in natural products is much safer and healthier for you. Remember all the microplastics usually added to cosmetics? It’s not uncommon to also add petroleum compounds. These compounds are derived from plastic, and although they don’t directly result in waste, they’re harmful chemicals absorbed by none other than your skin. These products have been linked to serious diseases, the most dangerous of which is cancer. 

 

Are you still having second thoughts about the zero-beauty routine? Then perhaps consider all the benefits you’ll gain. In addition to becoming more environmentally aware and leaving a positive impact on our planet, you’ll be repaid with saving on time, money, and health hazards. If you ask us, it’s a winning situation for everyone.
