BEAUTYBlog
how-to-preserve-your-beauty-with-the-help-of-cosmetic-procedures

Looking beautiful and feeling confident is important to many people. Unfortunately, time can take its toll on our appearances. This is where cosmetic procedures can help. This blog post will discuss some of the most popular procedures and how they can help you maintain your beauty. Keep reading to learn more.

Botox

As you age, it is natural for your skin to lose its elasticity and collagen production slows down. This can result in the formation of wrinkles and fine lines. Sun damage, pollution, and other environmental factors can also contribute to the loss of collagen and the formation of wrinkles. Fortunately, several cosmetic procedures can help you preserve your beauty.

One of the most popular cosmetic procedures is Botox. Botox is a safe, effective way to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. The procedure is quick and easy, and there is no downtime. Botox can help you look younger and feel more confident. Take the time to explore online sources where you may come across a website dedicated to Botox and other wrinkle removal procedures. You can read more here to have a good insight into what the procedure entails. This is where you will also have a good idea of the benefits and any potential risks that are associated with it.

Dermal Fillers

Another popular cosmetic procedure is dermal fillers. Dermal fillers are used to add volume to the face and can help reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. They can also be used to plump up the lips and cheeks. Dermal fillers are safe and effective, and there is no downtime. The results are immediate, and you will see a noticeable difference in your appearance.

Before you get dermal fillers, you have to be aware of the different types of fillers that are available. Each type of filler has its benefits and risks, so it is important to consult with a qualified professional to determine which type is right for you. For example, Restylane is a popular type of dermal filler that is made from hyaluronic acid. This type of filler is safe and effective, and it can be used to achieve a natural-looking result.

Laser Skin Resurfacing

Laser skin resurfacing is another popular cosmetic procedure that can help reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. Laser skin resurfacing can also help improve the texture of the skin and give it a more youthful appearance. One of the biggest benefits of laser skin resurfacing is that it can be done in a short amount of time. You can even have the procedure done during your lunch break. The results of laser skin resurfacing are long-lasting, and you will see a noticeable difference in your appearance. One potential drawback though is that laser skin resurfacing can be quite expensive. But if you are looking for a way to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines regardless of how much it costs, then laser skin resurfacing may be the right choice for you.

Facelift

A facelift can help to tighten skin that has become loose and saggy with age. It can also remove wrinkles and fine lines. A facelift can give you a more youthful appearance and help you feel better about yourself. The results of a facelift are long-lasting, but it is a more invasive procedure than Botox or dermal fillers. If you are considering a facelift, be sure to consult with a qualified professional to discuss the benefits and risks.

One of the risks associated with a facelift is that it can leave scars. If you are considering a facelift, be sure to ask your doctor about the risks and how they can be minimized. Another potential drawback of a facelift is that it is a more expensive procedure than Botox or dermal fillers. But if you are looking for a way to achieve a more youthful appearance, a facelift may be the right choice for you. Just make sure to weigh the pros and cons before making a decision.

  • Express lift

Express lift is a new type of cosmetic procedure that can help you achieve a more youthful appearance. It is less invasive than a facelift, and it can be done in a short amount of time. The results of an express lift are not as dramatic as a facelift, but they can still be significant. One potential drawback of an express lift is that it is a more expensive procedure than Botox or dermal fillers. But if you are looking for a way to achieve a more youthful appearance without the cost and invasiveness of a facelift, an express lift is a good option.

Chemical Peels

Some people may not be familiar with chemical peels, but they are a type of cosmetic procedure that can help improve the appearance of the skin. Most people who undergo a chemical peel see a noticeable difference in the way their skin looks and feels. Chemical peels can help to improve the texture of the skin, reduce wrinkles and fine lines, and even out the skin tone. Chemical peels are safe and effective, but they can be quite expensive because you need a few sessions to achieve the desired results.

There are different types of chemical peels, and each type has its benefits and risks. For example, glycolic acid peels are a popular type of chemical peel that can help improve the appearance of the skin. Glycolic acid peels are safe and effective, but they can cause some side effects like redness, irritation, and peeling. If you have sensitive skin, you may want to avoid glycolic acid peels. In this case, you can opt for a different type of chemical peel like lactic acid peels or trichloroacetic acid peels.

Cosmetic procedures are becoming increasingly popular as people strive to preserve their youth and beauty. If you are considering a cosmetic procedure, be sure to do your research and consult with a qualified professional. Rest assured that with the help of cosmetic procedures, you can look and feel your best at any age.

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.

Botox vs. Fillers: Which One Is Better?

BEAUTYBlog
botox-vs-fillers-which-one-is-better

 

There are a lot of decisions to make when it comes to your appearance, and one of the most important is whether you should get Botox or dermal fillers. Both procedures have their pros and cons, and it can be difficult to decide which one is right for you. In this blog post, we will discuss the differences between Botox and fillers, as well as their individual benefits. We will also help you decide which procedure is right for you!

What is Botox?

When you hear the word “Botox,” you probably think of a way to get rid of wrinkles. But what is Botox, really?

Botulinum toxin is a protein that’s produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. When this protein enters your body, it causes muscle paralysis. Doctors began using it in the 1970s to treat eye muscle disorders.

Now, doctors use small doses of botulinum toxin to temporarily relax facial muscles that cause wrinkles. This is why Botox is often called a “wrinkle relaxer.”

Botox is most commonly used to treat the following:

-Crow’s feet (lines that appear around the outside of your eyes)

-Forehead wrinkles

-Frown lines (the “11” lines between your eyebrows)

Botox is also used to treat medical conditions, such as:

-Chronic migraines

-Excessive sweating

-Muscle spasms

While Botox is most commonly associated with cosmetic uses, it actually has a variety of medical uses as well.

What are dermal fillers? 

On the other hand, dermal fillers are injectables that help to restore your skin’s volume and smooth away wrinkles. They can be made from different materials, including hyaluronic acid, calcium hydroxyapatite acid, poly-L-lactic, and autologous fat. Different types of dermal fillers are available, each designed for specific purposes. For example, some fillers are used to add volume to the lips, while others are meant to smooth out wrinkles.

How do Botox and Fillers work?

If you’re considering having either Botox or fillers injected, it’s important to understand how each one works. 

Botox is a purified protein that’s derived from botulinum toxin. When this protein is injected into muscle tissue, it temporarily relaxes the muscles. This is why Botox is often used to treat wrinkles caused by muscle contractions, such as crow’s feet and frown lines.

Fillers, on the other hand, are used to adding volume to the skin. There are many different types of fillers available, but they all work by filling in wrinkles and creases. This can help to plump up the skin and make it look more youthful. Also, because fillers are made from materials that are similar to the body’s own tissues, they are typically well-tolerated.

What are the benefits of Botox?

One of the major benefits of Botox is that it can help temporarily reduce the appearance of wrinkles. It works by relaxing the muscles in your face, which in turn can help to smooth out lines and wrinkles. Additionally, Botox can also help to prevent new wrinkles from forming.

Another benefit of Botox is that it can help to lift your brows. If you have drooping or sagging brows, Botox can help to give you a more youthful appearance.

Finally, Botox can also help to reduce the appearance of crow’s feet. Crow’s feet are the fine lines that form on the sides of your eyes and can be difficult to get rid of. Botox can help to reduce the appearance of crow’s feet by relaxing the muscles around your eyes.

What are the benefits of fillers? 

As we age, our skin loses elasticity and begins to sag. This is due to a decrease in collagen production. Fillers can help to restore the volume in our skin, giving it a more youthful appearance.

Fillers can also be used to create symmetry in the face. For example, if you have one side of your face that is drooping more than the other, fillers can help to even things out. Also, the effects of dermal fillers can be reversed if you are not happy with the results. In addition, fillers can be used to plump up thin lips or fill in hollow cheeks.

Which is better for you – Botox or Fillers 

To help you make an informed decision, here are key differences between the two:

Botox is a muscle relaxant, while fillers add volume. Botox works by temporarily paralyzing the muscles that cause wrinkles while fillers “fill in” the lines and creases caused by aging skin.

Fillers can be used to target specific areas such as the cheeks, jawline, and under-eye hollows, while Botox is typically injected into the forehead and around the eyes.

The effects of Botox last for about three to four months, while fillers can last anywhere from six months to two years.

Botox is a better option if you are looking for a temporary fix and don’t want to commit to long-term results. Fillers are ideal if you want to achieve more noticeable and longer-lasting results.

At the end of the day, the best option for you depends on your individual needs and goals. Be sure to consult with a board-certified dermatologist or plastic surgeon who can help you choose the right treatment for you.

Do you want to achieve immediate results that will only last a few months? If so, then Botox is the best option for you. However, if you’re looking for something that will provide more long-lasting results, then fillers are the way to go.

Side effects of Botox and Fillers

Since Botox and dermal fillers are both injected into the skin, there is a risk of bruising and swelling at the injection site. There may also be temporary numbness or weakness in the treated area. 

More serious side effects are rare but can include trouble swallowing, speaking, or breathing, hoarseness, infection, and muscle weakness. Fillers can also cause side effects, such as bruising, swelling, and redness at the injection site. 

Other potential side effects include lumps, granulomas (hard bumps), and vision problems. Again, more serious side effects are rare but can include trouble swallowing or breathing, blindness, stroke, and damage to the nerves. 

 

There is no clear winner between botox and fillers. It really depends on your individual goals and needs. If you’re looking for a more temporary solution, then fillers may be the way to go. However, if you want to achieve more long-term results, then botox may be a better option for you. Ultimately, it’s important to consult with a professional to see which treatment plan is right for you. Thanks for reading!

How To Have Beautiful And Healthy Skin: 6 Pieces Of Advice

BEAUTYBlogLIFESTYLESKIN CARE
how-to-have-beautiful-and-healthy-skin-6-pieces-of-advice

 

 

How many times have you looked in the mirror and wished that your skin was different? How often do you feel like you need to hide your skin under layers of makeup? If you’re tired of not feeling confident in your own skin, it’s time to make a change. In this blog post, we will discuss six pieces of advice for having beautiful and healthy skin. Follow these tips, and you’ll be on your way to seeing real results!

1. Drink lots of water and avoid sugary drinks

Drinking plenty of water is crucial for healthy skin. Not only does it keep you hydrated, but it also helps to flush out toxins that can cause breakouts. sugary drinks, on the other hand, can contribute to skin problems like acne and premature aging. So, stick to water and unsweetened teas and you’ll be on your way to beautiful skin in no time.

Also, water helps to keep your skin looking plump and youthful, so make sure to drink up!

Aside from water, there are a few other drinks that can help improve your skin health. Green tea, for instance, is packed with antioxidants that can help protect your skin from damage. And coconut water is a great natural hydrator that can leave your skin looking glowing and radiant.

2. Eat a balanced diet with plenty of fruits and vegetables

One of the best things you can do for your skin is to eat a healthy diet. Make sure to get plenty of fruits, vegetables, and whole grains. These foods are packed with nutrients that are good for your skin. Eating a balanced diet will help your skin look its best. Also, try to limit your intake of sugar and processed foods. These foods can cause inflammation and make your skin look dull.

If you’re looking for specific foods that are good for your skin, here are a few to add to your diet:

Avocados – Avocados are packed with healthy fats that help keep your skin moisturized.

Sweet potatoes – Sweet potatoes are a great source of beta-carotene, which is converted to vitamin A in the body. Vitamin A is essential for healthy skin.

Tomatoes – Tomatoes contain lycopene, an antioxidant that can help protect your skin from damage.

Walnuts – Walnuts are a great source of omega-three fatty acids, which are important for maintaining healthy skin.

Salmon – Salmon is a good source of omega-three fatty acids, which are important for keeping your skin hydrated.

Now that you know what to eat for healthy skin, let’s move on to the next tip.

3. Get enough sleep every night

As we age, our skin regenerates more slowly. To promote healthy skin cell turnover and prevent fine lines, aim to get at least seven to eight hours of sleep every night. 

One way to make sure you’re getting enough shut-eye is by disconnecting from electronics an hour before bedtime and creating a relaxing bedtime routine. This could include reading a book, taking a bath, or stretching.

If you have trouble falling asleep, avoid caffeine and alcohol in the evening and try to stick to a regular sleep schedule. Creating a calm environment in your bedroom can also help signal to your brain that it’s time to wind down for the night.

Getting enough sleep is not only crucial for healthy skin but for your overall health and well-being. So make it a priority to get some shut-eye each night!

4. Exfoliate your skin regularly to remove dead cells

If you don’t exfoliate your skin, dead cells will accumulate on the surface of your skin and make it look dull. In order to keep your skin looking fresh and radiant, exfoliate at least once a week with a gentle scrub. Also, there are some cosmetic treatments, such as microdermabrasion, that can help to slough off dead skin cells. That way, your skin will better absorb moisturizers and other products.

Whichever method you choose, be sure to massage the scrub into your skin in circular motions and rinse thoroughly afterward. Pat your skin dry with a towel and apply a moisturizer to keep your skin hydrated.

If you have sensitive skin, be careful not to exfoliate too often as this can irritate the skin. Try exfoliating every other week and see how your skin reacts. You can always adjust accordingly.

5. Use a moisturizer after you shower or bathe

Another important step for keeping your skin healthy and beautiful is to moisturize it after you shower or bathe. This helps to seal in moisture and keep your skin from drying out. Be sure to choose a moisturizer that’s appropriate for your skin type, and apply it while your skin is still damp.

If you have dry skin, you might want to consider using an oil-based moisturizer. This type of moisturizer can help to lock in moisture and keep your skin from feeling tight and dry.

If you have oily skin, you might want to try a gel-based or light lotion-type moisturizer. These types of products can help to control shine and keep your skin from looking too greasy.

No matter what type of skin you have, it’s important to moisturize regularly. This will help to keep your skin looking and feeling its best.

6. Protect your skin from the sun’s harmful rays by using sunscreen

Since the sun is the number one cause of premature aging, it’s important to always wear sunscreen, even on cloudy days. Look for a sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher that offers broad-spectrum protection from both UVA and UVB rays. Apply it generously to all exposed skin areas before going outside and reapply every two hours, or more often if you’re swimming or sweating.

When choosing a sunscreen, it’s important to select one that is water-resistant and won’t clog your pores. If you have sensitive skin, look for a sunscreen that contains zinc oxide or titanium dioxide. These ingredients are less likely to cause irritation than other sunscreens on the market.

Following these six pieces of advice will help you to have beautiful and healthy skin. However, keep in mind that everyone’s skin is different and what works for one person might not work for another. Be sure to listen to your skin and do what is best for it! Thanks for reading!

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.

6 Useful Pieces Of Advice From Celebrities On How To Maintain A Youthful Appearance

BEAUTYBlogSKIN CARE
6-useful-pieces-of-advice-from-celebrities-on-how-to-maintain-a-youthful-appearance

 

 

 

There are lots of great things about aging – the experience that enables you to make wiser decisions, the memories that enrich your life, and the deep connections you make with people. But if there’s one thing that’s not all that great about growing older, it’s the way your body changes over time. Luckily, there are plenty of celebrities out there who have shared their own tips and tricks for how to maintain a youthful appearance – and we’ve rounded up the best of the bunch for you.

1. Supplements And Glowing Skin (Gwyneth Paltrow)

When you’re young, your skin just has a certain glow to it. You’re well-rested, full of energy, and not bogged down by the stress of everyday life. Unfortunately, as you age, it becomes harder and harder to maintain that youthful glow – but Gwyneth Paltrow has a solution. Gwyneth strongly believes that having a beauty regimen that’s both internal and external yields the best results. One look at the stunning 49-year-old actress can convince anyone of how effective that philosophy is. Adding a multi-vitamin pack or a collagen powder to your beauty routine, in addition to using products topically, can help your skin to better reflect light and appear more youthful overall. Of course, as the experts over at https://supplementfirst.com note, it’s always best that the supplements you choose are made from natural ingredients, and have been clinically tested. That way you can rest assured that they’re healthy, safe, and efficient.

2. Drink Water To Avoid Wrinkles (Jennifer Anniston)

The Friends star is one of the most beautiful women in Hollywood, and at 53 years old, she looks better than ever. So what’s her secret? While she admits that genetics has a lot to do with it, Jennifer Aniston also credits her youthful appearance to drinking lots of water – and that’s something that we can all get on board with. Drinking water helps to keep your skin hydrated, which prevents fine lines and wrinkles from forming. It also helps to flush out toxins, giving your skin a radiant and healthy glow. So next time you’re reaching for that coffee or soda, try to switch it out for a glass of water instead. Not only will your skin thank you for it, but you’ll also be doing your body a whole world of good.

3. Use Sunscreen Daily (Julianne Moore)

It’s impossible to talk about looking stunning at any age without mentioning Julianne Moore. The actress simply looks amazing at 61, and she has sunscreen to thank for it. As Julianne herself has said, she’s been using sunscreen every day since she was 21 – an important step we should all be taking, regardless of our age. Sunscreen not only helps to prevent sun damage, which can cause fine lines, wrinkles, and dark spots, but it also protects against skin cancer. So make sure to apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30 to your face and body every day, even when it’s cloudy outside. Because most of us only remember to put on sunscreen when we’re headed to the beach or the pool, it’s a good idea to keep a bottle in your purse or backpack so that you can reapply it throughout the day regardless of the season or the occasion.

4. Eat Fresh Fruits And Vegetables (Andie Macdowell)

“What you eat makes a huge difference in the health of your skin” – said the gorgeous 63-year-old actress and fashion model. And it makes perfect sense when you think about it. After all, your skin is your body’s largest organ, and what you put into your body will inevitably show up on the outside. That’s why Andie Macdowell makes sure to eat plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables – they’re packed with vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants that are essential for healthy, youthful-looking skin. So next time you’re at the grocery store, be sure to stock up on some of Andie’s favorites, like squash, broccoli, strawberries, and blackberries. If these aren’t foods that you typically eat, don’t worry – there are plenty of delicious recipes online that incorporate them into meals that the whole family will enjoy.

5. Olive Oil For Skin And Hair Care (Jennifer Lopez)

Olive oil can be used for much more than just cooking. At 52, Jennifer Lopez still uses a beauty trick her mom and aunt taught her when she was just a young girl. The superstar uses olive oil as a natural hair and skin conditioner. Not only does this help to keep her hair looking shiny and her skin looking soft, but it also helps to prevent wrinkles. You can even take it a step further and mix olive oil with lemon juice. The fatty acids in the olive oil help to lubricate and plump the skin, while the lemon juice acts as a natural astringent and antioxidant. So if you’re looking for an all-natural way to keep your skin and hair looking their best, give this beauty tip a try.

6. Never Stop Moisturizing (Naomi Campbell)

Naomi Campbell began her career at just 15, and still looks runway-ready as she enters her fifties. So how does she do it? The world-famous supermodel, actress, singer, and businesswoman has a pretty simple tip – moisturize and then moisturize some more. Whether it’s a facemask, a night cream, or a body lotion, your skin will thank you for never skipping a step when it comes to hydration. And if you really want to give your skin a boost, try using an antioxidant-rich serum under your moisturizer. This will help to protect your skin against free radical damage, which can cause fine lines, wrinkles, and dark spots.

So there you have it – 6 useful pieces of advice from celebrities on how to maintain a youthful appearance. So whether you’re trying to prevent wrinkles, protect your skin from the sun, or just keep your hair and skin looking their best, be sure to give these tips a try. After all – who can give better beauty advice than some of the most stunning women in the world?

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.

4 Ways to Seriously Upgrade Your Beauty Routine This Spring

BEAUTYBEAUTY TRENDS
4-ways-to-seriously-upgrade-your-beauty-routine-this-spring

 

 

 

Having an established beauty routine is essential to ensuring that the health and well-being of your outer body match that of your inner body. 

Establishing that routine can take a while – especially if you are unaware of all the products on the market or the beauty routines and regimens that are best suited for you. 

Part of the challenge is separating the prevalent (though useless) trends from the legitimate approaches to beauty, health, and wellness. 

If you are looking for a serious upgrade to your existing beauty routine this spring, we’ve got four great suggestions for items and techniques to add to your existing regimen. 

Revive Your Shampoo & Conditioner Routine 

One of the items you might consider including in your new beauty routines is Wow shampoo and conditioner. 

In addition to nourishing your hair, WOW Apple Cider Vinegar Shampoo is packed with all the best pure botanicals so that you can tackle and gently clear away any build-up and dandruff you might have on your scalp. 

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 Does Nail Dip Powder Actually Work? Discover the Benefits

BEAUTYBlogNAILS
how-does-nail-dip-powder-actually-work-discover-the-benefits

 

We’ve been seeing nail dip powders trending everywhere lately. There is a good chance you have seen videos of amateur manicurists on your timeline achieving flawless nails using these products. If you have been tempted to try nail dip for yourself, you are certainly not alone. The problem is though, it can be hard to know if something you see on the internet is worth the money or just too good to be true. We are here to tell you that while nail dip powders seem too good to be true, that is far from the case. These powders really do work. And better than many of the other at home products we’ve tried. If you are curious about how they work and what the benefits are, keep reading.

The Future of Manicures

So what exactly is nail dip powder? Simply put, it’s exactly what it sounds like. Rather than painting on polish, the manicure is applied by dipping the nail into a powder and applying an activator to help it harden. Once you apply the nail dip, you will be able to rock your manicure for up to five weeks. This stuff is incredibly tough, which means no annoying chipping or peeling.

Easy to Apply

If you avoid standard nail polish or at home gels due to their messiness, you’re going to love nail dip. Applying nail polish to your own nails can be disastrous if you are even the slightest bit shaky. Not to mention how difficult it can be to get off excess gel polish once it’s been cured under a UV light. If you can relate to that struggle, nail dip is here to help. The only thing you will be painting on your nails during the nail dip process is a clear base liquid. The color is all in the powder, so once the powder adheres to the base coat you can brush off any excess rather than trying to wipe away any sticky polish splotches.

If you are currently using an at home gel polish, you can retire that UV light. One of the major reasons gel polish users are switching to nail dip is to avoid exposing their nails to UV rays. This is a process known to soften your nail bed. When combined with the harsh chemicals that are used in gel polishes you have a recipe for weaker nails. Also, waiting for your nails to cure is a time suck. Nail dip can save you time on your at home manicures. Not to mention the time (and money) saved on salon trips if you get your nails done professionally.

Longer Lasting

Aside from them being easy to apply, nail dips are also praised for their longevity. Standard nail polish has around 24-36 hours of flawless wear before you start to see chipping. With at home gels, you get maybe a week or two before you start to notice peeling around the edges. Acrylics are incredibly strong and long lasting, but the removal process is traumatic for your nail beds. Nail dip powder on the other hand wears like acrylic but doesn’t cause significant damage to your nail upon removal. People who use nail dip report up to five weeks of perfect wear before having to remove the manicure due to nail growth. No chips or peeling in sight on these nails!

Tips for Flawless Application

Let’s talk about how to make nail dip powder work for you. There are a few tips and tricks that you should know before embarking on your first dip manicure venture. It is important to make sure your nails are prepped to ensure that everything goes on smoothly. You will want to use a cuticle pusher to gently expose the base of the nail. This will ensure longer wear and even placement of the color. You will want to file, shape, and buff your nails. Make sure you wash your hands after this step to remove any oils or dust from the area. Start with the build powder and then move onto the color powder once you have the base down.

When it comes to application you should ensure that you are brushing away any excess powder between coats. Some colors have darker pigmentation then others so you may want to apply an extra coat of the color powder to up the opacity. The activator liquid comes after the powder and is crucial to setting your manicure. You will want to apply this twice, waiting two minutes between coats.

Why Cruelty-Free Makeup Is the Way Forward

Here’s a fascinating and not-so-fun fact: more than 100 million animals are hurt in the United States alone due to animal experiments every year. Animal testing, it turns out, is terrible science and does not always work, according to several studies. One of the most effective ways to show your opposition to animal testing is to switch to cruelty-free skincare products. So, whether it’s your matte foundation or that new lipstick you love, be sure to think ethically before purchasing.

Companies have no justification for testing on animals. Animal testing can be replaced with more effective methods. To maintain their cruelty-free status, many corporations have purposefully avoided such markets. One of the most effective ways to say no to animal experimentation is to switch to cruelty-free products. Here are some reasons why we should all try to choose cruelty-free cosmetics.

Animal Protection – This is the number one reason! In labs, various animals are studied, ranging from rabbits to canines. You may not feel comfortable utilizing products that have been tested on domesticated animals if you are an animal lover. Animal testing isn’t required in the cosmetics sector. Many companies have demonstrated that developing safe and effective products is feasible without using animals. The number of animals tested will decrease as demand for cruelty-free products grows. You’ll be assisting in the protection of those animals.

Healthier – Makeup formulas typically contain a few ingredients to achieve the desired color, provide a unique feature to the makeup, and differentiate the brand’s formulas from its competitors. Unfortunately, animals are frequently used in the testing of these substances. Although chemical-free cosmetics are nearly impossible to get, several compounds may and should be avoided in makeup formulae. Purchasing cruelty-free makeup protects innocent animals from testing and protects you from putting harmful chemicals and components on your skin.

Hygiene – Have you ever thought about where your cosmetics originate if you don’t use cruelty-free makeup? The truth is that it comes from animals and usually not from their nicest parts. To begin with, if you buy your cosmetics brushes from a company that tests on animals and uses animal materials, your brushes are most likely made of horse, goat, squirrel, or badger hair. You may already be aware of this, but have you ever wondered how animal cosmetic firms obtain the fur for their brushes? Unfortunately, the tail is nearly always the answer to that query, which is terrible for both the animal and your facial hygiene.

Eco-Friendly – Cruelty-free brands are also more environmentally conscious. Most cruelty-free products avoid harsh chemicals in favor of more natural and sustainable alternatives, resulting in a better product and a greener option.

Mindful – You can have a better experience in the cosmetics aisle by limiting your options to items that have not been tested on animals. With fewer options, you can make more informed judgments and take the time to examine if a product is a good fit for your routine. Bathroom drawers that are overflowing could soon be a thing of the past.

Companies can formulate their products using a list of over 7,000 substances that have been proved to be safe; this demonstrates that there is no need to test additional substances on animals. Corporations that choose to test more ingredients on animals only do so to develop new, inventive ingredients that will boost their profitability.

The governments of Norway, South Korea, Switzerland, New Zealand, and the European Union have all recognized the risks of animal testing and have prohibited it in their respective countries. Animal testing is illegal in almost every country on the planet, which should tell you how unethical and hazardous it is. You can do the same and eliminate non-cruelty-free skincare products from your home. Animal testing is, in fact, both cruel and pointless. You can help companies make a meaningful difference by supporting brands that don’t test on animals. It’s better for both you and the animals! There’s no reason why you shouldn’t make the switch.

6 Daily Habits That Will Give You An Elevated And Sublime Look

BEAUTYBlogLIFESTYLE
6-daily-habits-that-will-give-you-an-elevated-and-sublime-look

 

The key to your beautiful and glowing complexion lies in your everyday habits and it is the balance that keeps your skin perfect. Loads of people spend whole fortunes on cosmetic products with the high hopes that they will make their skin look perfect and give them a better complexion. However, most people do not understand that healthy and beautiful skin is not just a result of the super expensive skincare routines, but it is influenced by some other factors that have nothing to do with the products but your lifestyle. Here are some habits that you can incorporate into your life to make your skin glow and will certainly give you a more sublime look. 

Hydration 

This is rule number one when it comes to maintaining your perfect complexion and giving you better overall health as well. Drinking tons of water plays a critical role since all of our cells consist mostly of water, and indeed water is responsible for taking out all the toxins that cause our skin to break out and have some problems such as excess sebum or acne. Water has a unique property to maintain a physiological balance and based on the numerous research, scientists have proven the fact that there is a strong connection between water and healthy skin. Well-hydrated skin is rich in collagen which is responsible for a firm and glowing look. On the other hand, with aging, our skin produces less collagen so our skin starts to wrinkle and get those fine lines in the critical areas such as the areas around the eyes and lips. Proper hydration has the power to boost collagen production so that our skin is almost poreless, radiant, and has no imperfections. 

Sunscreen 

Sunscreen is one of the most important parts of your skincare routine since it contains substances that will keep your skin protected from the damaging effects of UV rays. Since sun rays can make you feel energetic and give you more will to accomplish all of your daily goals, you have to be careful when it comes to skin exposure. Sun exposure with no protection will dry out your skin and make it prone to wrinkles, which is not a result you would like to experience at an early age. It is common sense that tan can make you feel more attractive and will give you a new charm, but apply sunscreen first. Long sun exposure will not only make fine lines appear but can also increase the possibility of some more serious diseases such as skin cancer. 

 

Truth to be said, UV rays can cause collagen production and skin elasticity to be altered. Namely, constant exposure to the sun, with no protection will result in sagging, wrinkles, and stretching. Some other skin problems you can experience are freckles, age spots, and skin discoloration, and these problems demand some other type of treatment. These are just some of the problems your skin can go through. On the other hand, sunscreen will give you a protective layer that will prevent UV rays from damaging your skin. Lately, there have been some improvements in the incorporation of sunscreen into skin care routines which puts a protective layer on your skin against the harmful effect of UV rays. Modern sunscreens have this feature to make them stand out on the market, as glowing and glossy skin is one of the biggest trends currently.

Eat Healthily 

Your complexion is directly connected to the things you intake and hence you need to be more focused on all the elements you incorporate into your diet. Eating some skin-friendly foods will give you amazing results, especially those that are rich in Vitamin C. We all know how much Vitamin C is beneficial for our skin and how it treats all of the imperfections and gives our skin glowy and dewy reflection. One of the things you can do is eat fresh veggies and fruit rich in Vitamin C so that it is absorbed directly, and even include it in your hydration, such as drinking water with small amounts of lemon or lime. Other types of foods that are beneficial for your skin are the ones rich in vitamins A, E, and K, and contain zinc, selenium, omega, and good fats. You should bear in mind that some complex nutrients that are contained in fast food can cause some skin outbreaks because of the increased amount of toxins. 

Sleep 

Beauty sleep is not a myth, it is a massive truth. Getting enough sleep is one of the most important elements of having healthy and smooth skin. Whether you are educated about this or not, you will notice negative effects on your complexion if you do not get enough sleep. You had eyebags, right? Not getting enough sleep will make your skin go through stress so it can result in some disorders that can cause dermatological conditions such as psoriasis, eczema, and premature skin aging. Sleeping is extremely important for your skin since it allows your skin enough time to regenerate, and all damaged cells to be repaired. 

Manage Your Stress

Unfortunately, psychological stress is one of the main causes that your skin is not as glowy as it used to be. Whenever you are stressed, your body wakes up all the hormones that will help your organism cope and hence cause your skin to age and your immune system to go through dysfunctions that will cause some massive outbreaks, and this is the part where you put yourself in a magic circle of being stressed for your skin looking bad, and your skin suffering because of it. So learning how to manage your stress will certainly have a positive effect on your skin.

Moisturizer 

Besides good quality cleanser and sunscreen, a good moisturizer will provide your skin with the proper care on its surface. Hence, invest some time into finding a moisturizer containing all the positive particles that will give your skin enough hydration to handle the day and will give it a more firm and radiant look. The best options are moisturizers that have water-based formulas. 

It is not always about the skincare that will make your skin look amazing and make you achieve the results you have always wanted. The key to your success is maintaining the balance in your life and doing the things that will make your overall health better.
