Health Woes In The Quest For Beauty

Health Woes In The Quest For Beauty

Everybody wants to look as good as they feel. Either that, or they want to look good so that they can feel good. This is why we put beauty on such a high pedestal, and it is also why cosmetics companies and other businesses within the beauty industry are making a killing. We want beauty products, and we want to believe in them.

We can also go to some pretty extreme lengths to achieve our ideals of beauty. We do this because we are constantly bombarded with images of ‘perfection’ – be it a billboard advertisement or images in our Facebook feed.

(source)

Our rampant quest for beauty and perfection can bring up a number of health considerations as well. Believe it or not, but there are more than enough people out there who are willing to risk their health to cut corners and experiment in the hope they find a miracle beauty product. I shouldn’t need to tell you that this is wrong and a recipe for disaster. Mistakes made with beauty could haunt you for the rest of your life, or at the very least require you to rack up a huge cosmetic surgery bill. Our health must always come first, no exceptions.

What do we need to consider if we want to use products to enhance our appearance? Well – in the first instance, we need to think about our allergies. We might not have any, but the instant we slather something onto our face, we can spring up in hives and all sorts! This is because a lot of cosmetics use new manmade ingredients that we have not been exposed to, meaning it can bring up underlying allergies! For creams and anything else – try your best to stick to organic and natural. A lot of the manmade stuff can lead to problems, but it’s cheap – for sure.

Cosmetic surgery and body enhancements can be considered safe – but only if carried out by trained professionals. With something like cosmetic surgery, you absolutely cannot cut corners, even if it does save you thousands. Cosmetic surgery should only ever be a consideration if you take it seriously enough to have multiple consultations with a trained and respected cosmetic surgery professional. If you cut corners, you might be in less trustworthy hands, and this could ruin your beauty – and your health.

When it comes to body enhancements, in particular, you’ll see plenty of DIY options advertised. Avoid at all costs. For every success stories with these, there are thousands of horror stories. What’s more, an unsuccessful body enhancement can be fatal – especially DIY implants which can be infected – or might explode within the body. Don’t do anything like this yourself, at all – always speak to a recommended professional.

In fact, with most changes to your beauty regime, you need to think clearly about what you are doing. If something shouldn’t be in your body or on your face, it shouldn’t be in your body or on your face. Take your health before your image, because that’s going to last longer anyway!

How To Stop Your Office Damaging Your Skin

How To Stop Your Office Damaging Your Skin

Modern life is hard on your complexion. We care very much about what we look like yet we subject our skin to many damaging situations and to a lot of stress. It can only take so much. Eventually, it will start to look dull and tired. It loses elasticity and texture and dry patches start to appear. You may also notice the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes.

When you start to investigate what could be the cause of your skin problems you should start to think about your office! It could be the place where you work that is causing the problem. Luckily, there are also several things that you can do about it. Before you try out a radical procedure read these simple tips.

 

Office life and skin damage

The modern office is a harsh environment for skin. The main culprit in the damage is air conditioning. We all welcome air conditioning on a hot day. Without it, we would find it almost impossible to work in many climates. However, it does come with a price. Offices with air conditioning have very low humidity levels and this is what causes the problem.

When you are in an area of high humidity, the moisture does not leave your skin. However, when you are in an environment where the humidity is low, the water will leave your skin rapidly and your body will struggle to replenish it.

The glare from PC monitors does not help. You could sit in front of one for over 8 hours a day and they can have a drying effect on the skin. If you are not able to get up and get a drink whenever you want, it is easy to become dehydrated. When your hydration levels are low, your skin is the first organ to suffer.

Looking after your skin in the office

You have to go to work and turning off the air conditioning is not an option so you need to find other ways to help your skin cope. The main way to protect your skin is to help it seal in moisture with a natural product. Many women have found that effective hyaluronic acid serum for skin is the best way to do this. It is a natural product that will work in harmony with your body by deeply hydrating and plumping up the skin. Your fine lines and wrinkles will diminish as the product works like a ‘moisture magnet’ to trap the skin’s own natural moisture and guard against the humidity of the office environment.

If you are able to sit back a little from your monitor it will reduce the effects of the heat and light on your skin. Also, take a small bottle of water with you to your desk so that you can sip it whilst you are working. Frequent breaks will do your whole body good.

Try to get out of the office at lunchtime for some fresh air and spritz your skin with water to refresh you before you head back into the office.

You are Flawless: Easy Ways to Prevent Acne and Dry Skin

You are Flawless: Easy Ways to Prevent Acne and Dry Skin

Spots, zits, pimples, whatever you want to call them, these little devils can be a nuisance to a woman’s self-esteem and confidence in her appearance. If you’ve suffered from acne, and it is likely you have or will have at some point during your life, you understand the annoyance and frustration which they can bring. A red spot on the face is difficult to hide and requires makeup to cover it, which can only exacerbate the problem. After all the prodding, pressing and damaging your skin, dryness typically follows, which can be another pain. To prevent these skin problems from ever occurring, here are a few easy ways to keep your skin healthy and acne-free.

pexels-photo-192474Image credit

Wash your face twice daily

This might seem like an obvious one, but it is the most effective for quick results. Around 20 percent of women in their 20s and 30s suffer from acne and one of the main reasons is lack of personal hygiene. Find a good face cleanser, a bowl of warm water and a soft towel to pat your face dry. Make sure you don’t rub with the towel, this can spread any bacteria from the acne and worsen the outbreak. If you can, stick to a routine daily where you schedule time to clean your face. Moisturizer can prevent dry skin effectively, but only use it if you currently have no areas of acne on the face. Go to your local beauty store and pick a moisturizer which is scent-free. There is nothing worse than choosing the wrong type of skin products, which can cause skin irritation. To solve this problem, do your research before buying and ask a shop assistant for advice.

Drink more water

24441559784_4d3a18403c_bPicture source

The question of how much water to drink has always been a conundrum, but the most common answer is around eight glasses per day. If we were all perfectly honest, we would say that we don’t drink enough, but the health benefits are countless. Not only is water good for your skin, but it can fix other beauty-related problems and improve the internal function of your body. Issues such as, withered hair, brittle fingernails, strong-smelling body odour and headaches, are all a result of not drinking enough water. One great tip is to have a glass of water with every meal, that way you are receiving your daily portion without really noticing it. For those of us who don’t enjoy the taste of tap water, invest in one of the best RO systems to filter and remove any impurities in the water. By doing this you will have better water and be on the right track for healthier skin.

Hands away from the face

It may sound odd, but your hands harbour a decent amount of bacteria, and if you touch your face, that’s wear it all goes. Did you know that something so silly like touching your face too much, can give you the flu? There are a few other reasons why you shouldn’t keep touching your face, and dirty skin is one of them. Items such as, phones, doorknobs, and keyboards contain millions of germs, and if they get on your face, an unwanted acne breakout will occur. If you have a habit of placing your hands on your face, try holding a stress ball to distract yourself. This bad habit could be the reason for your spots. So next time you’re watching Netflix, keep your hands away from the face!

Get a good night’s rest

pexels-photo-206396Image via Pexels

Yes, sleep is the answer to many health issues, and one of them is the repairing of your skin! The importance of sleep is underestimated and should be as high on your health list as that of eating. Who would’ve known that a lack of sleep, even two or three hours less, could cause a spot breakout?  If you’re struggling to sleep, check out these tips for getting better shut-eye. From reading a book before bed to doing a substantial amount of exercise in the day, these simple activities can maintain and regulate a healthy sleep pattern.

Avoid wearing too much makeup

Some of us couldn’t bear the thought of wearing no makeup for the day, but if you want cleaner, more spot-free skin, this might have to happen. Of course, there are some products which are made for acne-prone skin, but the safest, fastest bet to clear up acne is to go makeup-free for a while. Not only do the ingredients themselves irritate your skin, but if you forget to wipe a day’s worth of makeup off before going to bed, the bacteria is festering on your skin all night. So do yourself and your skin a favour, go natural for a few weeks!

Do some exercise

pexels-photo2Image from Pexels

Slotting time in for exercise is also crucial for your health and a way to get better, spot-free skin. There is a range of great exercises to choose from and enjoy doing. Squats, sit-ups, light jogs and swimming, the list is endless. As you exercise, blood flow increases and carries nutrients and oxygen to cells throughout your body. Exercise can also decrease stress, which in turn, reduces acne and eczema. So, by following a fun, simple workout everyday, not only are you losing weight, but you’re preventing those nasty spots and dry skin!

Eat these types of foods

Food glorious food, this is definitely true and applies to those foods which help our skin. Many foods have been proven to possess a vast amount of health properties which help to improve the quality of our skin. Dark berries, watercress, and red grapes are full of skin clearing antioxidants. Tomatoes aid collagen production which keeps skin firm. Next time you make spaghetti bolognese add some fresh garlic! You might smell after, but it’s worth it! Garlic helps kill any unwanted bacteria in your body which stops skin infections and acne. There are an abundance of Twitter channels which are dedicated to the acne-removal cause and which give fantastic tips, one of them is AcneSkinSite.

Hopefully, at least one of these methods works for your skin. If not, consider popping down to the doctors and getting some acne treatment. We can’t let spots dictate our life.

Bridal Makeup Tips for Flawless Wedding Photos

Bridal Makeup Tips for Flawless Wedding Photos

With your wedding just around the corner, you need to get everything prepared. You’ve found the dress, booked the venue and invited all the guests and now it’s time to take care of wedding beauty. Bridal makeup is just as essential as the rest of the wedding elements and every bride should be perfect on her big day; especially if she wants mesmerizing wedding photos. Thus, here are several tips for your flawless makeup and wedding photos.

Primer is essential

Firstly, by applying it you can have perfect makeup with little products. Secondly, it will help your makeup last throughout the whole wedding. Primer’s purpose is to smoothen your face, no matter how rough it is and it will help the rest of the makeup adhere better and blend in perfectly. Everything looks better with a primer and you will avoid having shiny areas on your face on your wedding photos and you won’t have to rush to the bathroom to fix your makeup every now and then.

Use a concealer

Since planning a wedding takes time and can be stressful, you probably won’t get too much sleep. This will result in dark circles under your eyes that need to go away on your big day. That’s why you should rely on a concealer. However, you should avoid using concealer five shades lighter than the rest of the makeup and your skin tone. Remember, less is more so spread it out evenly and modestly so you don’t end up with white circles under your eyes.

Emphasize your eyes

Don’t forget to make the eye makeup a bit darker, because you need to compensate for the whiteness of your dress and accessories. Also, pay attention to your lashes. Most women have never worn fake eyelashes but on your big day you can try them out. However, you need to be careful and rely on a professional to apply them; otherwise they could be your worst nightmare. You can also use individual eyelashes which can make your lashes more rich and natural. Nevertheless, you should emphasize your eyes, since they can get lost in the photos; but this way you will look beautiful in all of them.

Don’t forget your lips

Since your whole bridal look is rather white and light, you shouldn’t ignore your lips. They will need some colour as well in order to avoid looking too pale. You can opt for your favourite lipsticks or lip glosses in complementary colours, or rely on good old chapstick. If you leave your lips bare and dry, cracks will show up on camera and that could ruin your whole look.

Find a good photographer

To look good in your wedding photos you will also need a good photographer. Depending on your budget, you can hire a professional or ask a friend to take photos and videos. However, rely on friends only if they know what they’re doing and if that’s their passion. Otherwise the photos might not be as satisfying. If you decide to hire a professional, you should even have a trial photo session. Wear your makeup and ask your photographer to snap a few photos so you can see how the makeup looks. Many professionals, like those from Perfect Moment Photography, will gladly have a trial with you in order to make sure you are completely stunning and satisfied.

Have a trial

Pixbay

Before applying the final makeup for your big day, make sure you have a trial with your makeup artist. Give them your ideas and desires and wear a white shirt so you can see how the makeup looks on a white outfit. Trials are essential, because you don’t want any mishaps on your wedding day and so you can know for sure what makeup look is the best for your wedding.

There you have it; the most essential tips for your bridal makeup. Follow these tips and there is no doubt that you will look stunning on your wedding day and in your photos.

Every tattoo has a story. Stories can be why you got the piece, who or what it represents or how you got the tattoo.

Some tattoos represent priceless memories created or getting inked up can be a priceless memory all in itself.

That’s all good, but don’t let it be a lesson after the fact.

https://www.pexels.com/photo/foot-on-grey-strap-sandals-48805/

Things you should know before permanently branding your body

First, it’s permanent.

Picking a tattoo should be something you can live with for the rest of your life.

Have you ever met someone with a tattoo they regret? It’s too common of a story.

Eric Amicone of Everlasting Tattoos in Philadelphia, recommends printing out a picture of what you think you want. Carry it in you pocket or wallet. Take a look at it daily. If you’re not sick of it in three months, then that’s your tattoo.

If it’s a symbol you want, double check the meaning for contradictions.

https://www.pexels.com/photo/grayscale-photo-of-tattoo-on-woman-s-back-201527/

If it’s words, triple check the spelling, remember, ‘No regerts’ should actually say, ‘No REGRETS’

When picking a tattoo parlor

Make sure the artist is state certified and has city credentials.

Check the internet for reviews.

The place should be clean.

Don’t be afraid to ask questions. It’s your body. You have the right to know.

Be polite. They are working hard to give you magnificent art that will last you a lifetime.

And a great tip, talented artists will take your idea and redraw it to make it personal for you. Use your voice to give your input. Building a relationship with your tattoo artist can be a great thing.

The Best Natural Remedies For Clearer Skin

The Best Natural Remedies For Clearer Skin

9509632741_d8e4c32522_zImage Source

Everyone deals with problem skin at some point in their life – some longer than others – and finding the perfect remedy can be costly and time consuming. After a few weeks of using the cheap cleansers, you would spend more money trying to restore moisture to your skin. It was a never ending battle.

Thankfully, beautiful skin isn’t reserved for those blessed with good genes, or access to expensive facial treatments. You can treat your skin to a pampering facial using what you have in your kitchen cabinets. Let nature work its magic on your skin issues this weekend.

Lemon

The citric acid present in lemon helps keep the skin clear by removing dead cells, and its vitamin C content helps reduce dark spots by increasing the cell renewal process. Lemon also has bleaching properties that will help improve your overall skin complexion.

The method couldn’t be easier; simply apply fresh squeezed lemon juice to your face and neck, leave for ten minutes, then wash off with lukewarm water. Next, rub cucumber slices on your skin to soften and moisturize. Do this once every other day. This is the best solution available until you can get a discount on a facial treatment mask with a bloomingdales coupon code.

Aloe vera

The worst-kept dermatological secret in the world is aloe vera; not only does it soothe sunburns, it can clear even the most stubborn acne. Aloe vera has antibacterial properties that help kill bacteria that cause acne, anti-inflammatory properties that help soothe irritated skin, and astringent properties that help heal scars. Plus, it moisturizes the skin and stimulates new skin cell growth.

Don’t worry if you don’t have a plant on hand, as aloe vera gel will work just as well. Several times a week, rub the gel onto your skin with a cotton ball, leave for a few minutes, then rinse off with lukewarm water. It may take a few weeks to see results, but in the meantime your skin will certainly feel softer.

Tea tree

Tea tree is often mentioned as a solution for stubborn acne and oily skin conditions. Tea tree essential oil acts like a solvent and cuts through dead skin cells to unblock pores. Its antibacterial properties also kill off the acne causing bacteria, and prevent further outbreaks. Make sure to dilute it before use (one part oil to nine parts water). First you should wash your face with warm water. Then, simply apply the tea tree solution to problem areas using a Q-tip. If you prefer, you can apply a light layer of moisturizer.

Water

One of the many benefits of water is that it can purify the impurities in your skin, get rid of dryness and wrinkles, and remove excess oils and dirt. Drinking at least 2 liters per day gives the skin a bright, noticeable change in less than a week. Water also helps your kidneys flush out toxins, hydrate your brain to improve concentration, and can help you lose weight.

Growing Old? You Can Be Beautiful As Well As Wise

Growing Old? You Can Be Beautiful As Well As Wise

As we grow older we acquire many applaudable attributes. We’re wiser, smarter, and more grateful for everything that we have. But one thing that doesn’t age quite as well are our looks. When we’re young we have everything on our side, but as time goes on things tend to turn on us somewhat, and we can sometimes end up looking not as attractive as we’d like. However, that doesn’t mean we have to give up on our looks. In the 21st century there is no excuse for us to not look out best, regardless of how old we are! Here’s how.

pexels-photo-112324Source: Pexels.com

Staying Active

Yup, you might have noticed that you don’t look quite as youthful as you once did. But think about it: when we’re young, we’re always running around, being active, regular men and women about town. As we age, we become more sedentary. If you want to stay youthful and beautiful, you should take up an exercise routine that’s right for you, one that’ll have your face looking fresh and your body look good. You’ll be glowing, basically, and everyone’s drawn to someone who glows!

Science Has the Answer

Of course, even if we work out as often as we want to we sometimes can’t mask some factors that we’d rather live without. If you can’t shift weight in one particular part of your body (you can’t, unfortunately, target weight loss when you work), you can always use a service like  GastroCenter’s Smart Lipo treatments and trim away the fat in those areas where the fat is hard to shift. Similarly, if your issue is hair loss – which affects around 50% of women and 80% of men during their life times – then you can look at consulting a hair transplant specialist and add some extra hair to boost a youthful look.

Being a Fashionista

There comes an age where we kind of slip out of the trend scene, where we’re not too sure what’s hot and what’s not. It makes sense, especially as we have so many other things going on in our lives. However, staying abreast of the clothes that’ll make us look at our best actually isn’t all that difficult – dedicate some time to reading the best clothing blogs for older people before you go shopping and you’ll look great when you return from the stores.

Living Well

Of all the things we can do, few affect our beauty greater than our lifestyles. If we eat well and don’t drink too much alcohol, we can carry on staying youthful for longer. If we live the lifestyle of a 25 year old, we won’t. Take care of yourself and you’ll naturally stay youthful and beautiful.

Accepting Who You Are

Of course, you can’t fix every single ailment. At some point you’ll need to learn to accept some of the flaws that can’t be fixed. Part of being beautiful is having confidence, and if you have confidence then people will notice it. Sometimes it’s much more about our attitude to ourselves and life than we think!

Are You Spending Too Much on Beauty Products?

Are You Spending Too Much on Beauty Products?

Many of us spend far too much on beauty products. Those hair products, lipsticks and creams don’t come cheap. And you need to find new ways to save money on those products if you don’t want to go broke buying all of the items you want and need. Here are some great tricks to help you do exactly that.

Leave Items in Your Online Cart for the Possibility of Discounts

This is a great trick for anyone who likes to buy most of their beauty products online. If you select the things you want, and then put them in your online cart, you can leave them there and see what happens. It’s possible that nothing happens. But sometimes, the company will send you an email reminding you to complete your purchase. And when they do this, they might send you a discount code. It’s a nice little way to get 10% off your purchase once in awhile. That won’t be possible every time, but sometimes you get lucky, and it’s worth a try for sure.

Look for Some Cool DIY Solutions

You can often take a DIY approach to makeup and beauty products. This could be as simple as buying a cheap item and making it a bit better by adding things or just changing how it functions. There are plenty of examples of these DIY Crafts online that you can follow and make use of if you want to. It doesn’t cost much money to create something new and unique that you wouldn’t be able to buy from any shop or online store, so it’s definitely worth giving this a try if you’re trying to spend less on those expensive branded products.

Make the Most of Free Samples

Free samples offer you a great way to make sure that you don’t waste money on a product that’s not really right for you. The unique thing about many beauty products is that you can’t really be sure whether or not they’re right for you until you apply them and see what you think. They might work better for you than you expected. Or they might be far worse than you had hoped. You just don’t know until you try them out, and that’s why you should always make the most of free samples. It makes sense to do this, so don’t hesitate to pick up samples before buying.

Scrape Out Every Last Bit of What You Paid For

Most of us throw away a lot of what we paid for when it comes to beauty products. That’s because squeezing every last drop out of those bottles and tubes can be pretty much impossible. But if you want to get the most for your money, you need to find a way to make use of it all. The best way to do this is to literally cut open the bottle or tube with a pair of scissors and scrape out the last of whatever’s in there. That way, nothing will go to waste.
