What To Consider When Having Cosmetic Procedures

What To Consider When Having Cosmetic Procedures

Cosmetic procedures are something you should take very seriously. There can be many things that can go wrong, and it’s important you know what to expect so that you’re not disappointed. Here are some things to consider when having cosmetic procedures.

Do Your Research

Doing your research when it comes to any cosmetic treatment is essential. Whenever it’s something new, you want to have an awareness of what the procedure is and what’s involved. That way, you know exactly what you are getting yourself into, so you won’t be unpleasantly surprised by anything you weren’t expecting. It’s also good for your own safety too because there might be something that they do that will have a reaction on your body or that you know won’t be appropriate. So make sure that whatever the procedure is, you’re getting the right amount of research done to be fully aware of what you’re diving into. Even if you’ve had it done before, it’s a good idea to remind yourself what’s involved, especially if you’re going somewhere new.

Know The Risks If There’s Any

Risks are something that can tend to come with many treatments when there are products used on it or tools that might end up with the skin or body reacting to it in some way. So whether you’re having injectable fillers or have a non-invasive fat freezing treatment, it’s important to know what the risks are. Whatever issues you’re trying to tackle, whether it’s micropigmentation or the appearance of wrinkles, it’s essential that you know what those side-effects might be and any risks that you might be taking when it comes to getting the procedure.

Do It For You And Only You

When getting a cosmetic treatment like anything you do to yourself, it must be for you and only you. A lot of people will get these cosmetic treatments because of what seems to be normal to have in society or perhaps friends or family have recommended you get it. But that’s something you don’t want to be doing, and instead, it needs to be something that you do for you, and that makes you happy. If you’re doing it for other people, then you are certainly going to regret it or not be the happiest when it comes to making those decisions.

Keep Up With The Aftercare

The aftercare of any treatment is important to follow up. Just because you’ve done the treatment, it doesn’t mean that you don’t need to do anything else. For some treatments like lipocontrast, you need to be drinking lots of water and maintaining a consistent level of fitness and healthy eating. Make sure you ask all the relevant questions before leaving the cosmetic clinic to ensure you know everything that is needed.

Cosmetic procedures are a common practice for many people in order to change the way they look or the way they feel. Make sure that you’re doing this for you and nobody else, read up on the procedure itself, and know the risks or side-effects that come with it.

How to Stay Safe While Whitening Your Skin

How to Stay Safe While Whitening Your Skin

Image by Steve Buissinne from Pixabay

Even if all dark-skinned people are being encouraged to love their natural skin color and be proud of it, some of us still prefer a lighter skin tone, which isn’t a bad thing to desire – after all, to each their own. In Asia, fair skin is widely promoted as a beauty standard, so whitening products are big everywhere and some people even go to extreme lengths and pay hefty amounts of money just to have their skin lightened.

But health concerns have been raised as the skin whitening trend continues. Risks of cancer and other skin conditions are brought to light after some whitening methods are introduced, such as skin bleaching. Doctors also enumerated ingredients that should be avoided in order to stay cancer-free while having your skin whitened.

That said, let’s talk about how to stay safe while whitening your skin.

How Skin Whitening Works

Our skin has special cells called melanocytes, which is responsible for producing pigment, a.k.a melanin. If you have dark skin, it means your melanocytes produce more melanin compared to those of people with fair skin. In skin whitening or bleaching, this function of the melanocytes is blocked, reducing the amount of melanin they normally do, so that you’d have lighter skin in turn.

Safe Ingredients

If you wish to lighten your skin, only stick to products that use vitamin C, vitamin A, or vitamin B3 to reduce melanin production. These vitamins are safe blockers and you can find them in over-the-counter skin whitening toners and other topical products. Herb ingredients such as licorice and emblica, as well as fruit acids such as glycolic acid, are also safe for the skin and health.

Unsafe Ingredients

If you’re not careful when you shop, you may end up purchasing affordable but harmful products that increase your risk of developing cancer and other skin conditions. Every time you look for whitening products, always read their ingredients list, and avoid anything with the following:

  • Hydroquinone

Only 2% or less hydroquinone content is considered safe. Anything above is toxic to the body, so it’s best to stay away from this ingredient.

  • Mercury

Applying anything with mercury on your skin is one of the worst things you can do to your body. It’s a toxic metal that can cause kidney failure and problems to the nervous system.

  • Steroids

Steroids thin your blood vessels and reduce blood flow, making your skin look paler and thus fairer. With prolonged use, complications may occur in blood pressure levels, blood sugar, and even in mental health.

  • BHT or BHA

Butylated Hydroxytoluene andButylated Hydroxyanisole are proven to cause cancer in animals as per tests. If that’s the case, it’s best to steer clear of these ingredients.

  • Dioxane

This is unregulated in most countries because of its toxicity, so stay away from dioxane as well.

  • Fragrances

If you have sensitive skin, fragrances may give you allergic reactions such as irritation, itchiness, or inflammation, so it may be better to avoid them.

DIY Skin Whitening

If you’re super health-conscious but would still love to whiten your skin, you can try a DIY bleach formula. It only consists of pure lemon juice and hydrogen peroxide, but be extra careful when using them, because they may get in your eye and irritate it. If you have dark spots you wish to eliminate, safe home remedies include apple cider vinegar, aloe vera, and green tea extract, so opt for any of those.

Remember that all skin colors are beautiful, so even if you wish to lighten yours, keep in mind that your darker skin still makes you beautiful and it also deserves your love and praise. Treat your skin with care by using only products that are proven safe and effective.

5 of the Best Ways to Invest in Yourself

5 of the Best Ways to Invest in Yourself

As adults, most of us are good at putting others first- we care for our kids, our parents/ grandparents and our partner. We’re always there to provide a shoulder to cry on for our friends and give them advice, but when it comes to ourselves we can be at the bottom of our own priority lists. Many of us can actually feel bad or guilty when we invest time or money into ourselves, but it shouldn’t be the case. Always remember that you’re important to, and you deserve to be happy. Investing into yourself shouldn’t be seen as selfish, but necessary. Here are a few of the ways you can go about it.

Learn to drive

Research shows that fewer millennials tend to drive than generations before them, and when they do, they get their licenses much later. There are lots of reasons for this, from busy cities not being car friendly to the accessibility of lift apps like Uber and more reliable public transport. However, being able to drive is still a really useful skill to have. If you want to move away later in life you won’t be able to rely on the public transport system as heavily. Being able to drive can also improve your job prospects. Even if you don’t plan on purchasing and driving a car right now, taking your lessons and getting your license means you’re able to in the future if you need to. See learning to drive as an investment in yourself, it’s a useful life skill which could come in really handy. 

Focus on health

There’s only one you; you only have one body so it’s important to take care of it as best you can. Your health is an investment, buy good quality food that’s going to nourish you and skip out on the cheap, convenient rubbish. You don’t have to have a gym membership to get fit, but if you find that having one encourages you to workout then don’t feel bad about spending the money on it. Spending any kind of time or money on your health is never going to be a bad thing. Eating well doesn’t have to be difficult, and these days it’s easy to fit it around your everyday life. From mail order, high quality foods delivered to your door (check out this omaha steaks review as an example) to opting for a healthy restaurant or a healthy dish at a restaurant if you go out. These days, most places cater for those looking to eat less fat or calories, so it doesn’t mean you need to give up going out and eating with friends. 

Improve your smile

Your smile is so important; it’s how you communicate with the world and is closely linked with your self esteem. If you’re insecure about your teeth, you can find that you hold back, you cover your mouth with your hands or try to avoid smiling instead of just being in the moment with others. If you don’t like the way your teeth look, consider going to a dentist and seeing what they can do- veneers, teeth whitening and braces are amongst the treatments you can have. Taking care of your newly fixed up teeth is important too. learn about flossing and the importance of regular brushing. Even missing out on brushing your teeth a couple of times can be enough for cavities to start or stains to develop so it’s important to be consistent. 

Get educated

Most of us couldn’t wait to leave school and get out into the big wide world, but later on as adults we can appreciate how incredible education is. It opens your mind and opens doors in your career, taking on more education is a smart move regardless of what path you’re on in life. 

Travel

Finally, travel is more than just a luxury. It’s great for mental health and personal development, there’s nothing quite like experiencing new things around different cultures in different climates and completely different ways of life that makes you question your own. Travel gives you perspective, builds memories and gives you stories to tell. If you have the time and money, always grab the opportunity with both hands. You don’t always need a huge budget- road trips, backpacking and camping are all cheap and cheerful and allow you to go to new places without spending a fortune on hotels.

Four Ways To Boost Your Body Confidence

Four Ways To Boost Your Body Confidence

It can be hard to love your body and all its unique features when the media is often presenting one idealistic view of beauty. The internet age has sparked a movement of self love but with it we have more access than ever to airbrushed images of supermodels and influencers that present an unrealistic idea of what we should look like. If you’ve found yourself looking in the mirror and not feeling any love towards the person looking back at you then before you start googling ‘plastic surgeon free consultation near me’ try these four ways to boost your body confidence and get back to loving the skin you’re in. 

1. Banish negativity and welcome positivity

Our mental state is so easily impacted by the things we surround ourselves with and body confidence is no different. Remove negative people or things from your life, unfollow Instagram accounts that make you feel bad and surround yourself with body confident influencers, people who champion natural beauty and online material that helps to bring you up rather than put you down. A few great body positive accounts to follow include @effyourbeautystandards, @roseybeeme and @honorcurves but try to find someone you can relate too. 

2. Adopt a mantra

As mentioned above, we have the ability to dramatically influence our own state of mind by thinking positive thoughts. Another great way to introduce positivity into our lives is to adopt a mantra. A mantra is a group of words or a simple phrase that is repeated over and over again; such as, “I am secure in myself. I do not compare myself to others.” or “I am a healthy, happy, positive person.”. A mantra can be anything you want it to be, and you can personalize one to suit you. If you want a few to get you started then check out this link

3. Study yourself and name the positives

You may dislike your nose or perhaps you hate the look of your stretch marks, but when was the last time you stood in the mirror, bared all to the world, and really studied yourself? Find some time when you are alone and look at yourself from head to toe, strike a pose, say aloud all the things you like about yourself. Be proud of the skin you are in. Get used to your naked body and see the beauty within yourself, learn to love your imperfections, they are what make you, you.

4. Power dress

If all else fails go the extra mile and adorn your beautiful body with all of the things that make you feel special. This could be your favourite pair of lacy underwear, or perhaps some bold statement jewelry, or maybe you have a pair of jeans that truly accentuate how fantastic your legs are. Whatever it is, our clothes and body image can have a big impact on our self confidence. If you aren’t in love with the skin you’re in then fake it until you make it and dress yourself with confidence.

How Do People Actually Feel Attractive?

How Do People Actually Feel Attractive?

Do you sometimes have that feeling, when you look into the mirror, that attractiveness is for other people? 

We all have a bad day when we feel vulnerable; one of those days when all you want to do is to hide away until you’ve made peace with the reflection in the mirror. Bad days happen to the best of us. But they are not without consequences. Indeed, it’s hard to stand for yourself when your inner critic is stuck on a loop of ugliness. Attractive people never have self-doubts, you tell yourself. But that’s where you’re wrong. Attractiveness is in all of us, and that includes you even on your bad days. You need to find your way back to the real you.

They buy the clothes for it

There’s no denying it; you’re not going to feel at your most sensual when you’re wearing a pair of oversized joggers. What you wear plays a significant role in how you think. Feeling attractive is all about choosing a delicate lingerie set that revive your inner femme fatale. After all, you have to dress the part! It’s up to you whether you prefer a cheeky babydoll with a bow or a pair of alluring French knickers. There’s a moment when you have to give your mind a chance to look at yourself from the right angle, and that includes buying the clothes that make you feel like a woman. 

They look after their body

Your body is a temple. You’ve heard the saying countless times before, but you’ve never really thought it through. There’s a double meaning to the temple imagery. Indeed, it means that you need to treat your body with the utmost respect, in terms of how you feed it and look after it. But it also means that, like a temple, it has the potential to shine – aren’t temples filled with the most delicate decorations? If you’re the kind of person who lives primarily on takeaway and goes to bed without removing their makeup, the chances are that the temple might be in need of repair works! But ensuring you give your body the vitamins and minerals it needs to stay strong and healthy and that you protect your skin, you’re guaranteed to feel like a goddess!

Skin Care at Any Age

Skin Care at Any Age


One of the biggest questions I receive is people wondering what is the best age to start taking care of your skin.


Skin is the largest organ we have and taking care of it starts from the day you were born.


The day you were born…



Gentle soaps and lotions are used on babies to hydrate and protect. Think of it this way… Your skin has been nourished since day one.


Terrible teen years…



Being a teen is rough on skin. Hormones are raging and marching across your face. Breakouts from poor diets and poor makeup can wreak havoc on our complexion. Introducing a good gentle cleansing program can be beneficial. Washing with honey and water can help clear up acne since honey had natural antibacterial properties.

Ah, twenties…


The twenties are for learning a lot about life. That includes learning what to eat and taking care of yourself. You become aware of the millions of makeup products that are available and have a top drawer full of them to prove it. Most important thing to remember is to clean your face. Use fragrance-free makeup wipes or cleanser before you go to bed. Sleep helps cells regenerate. And a clean face will allow your cells to do their job properly. Don’t forget to clean your makeup brushes as well. Bacteria grows fast, and you don’t want to slather bacteria all over your skin.


Moving towards your thirties…

By your late twenties/early thirties, you should have a solid skin regimen. Cells are slowing down, which makes it harder for skin to bounce back like it used to. Using natural products like Nakin anti-aging eye treatment and lip balm can help skin stay plump without harmful ingredients. The eye cream is silky, not greasy. The lip balm is minty and cool, not sticky and dry. Natural products can be extremely helpful in maintaining healthy skin.


Over forty-plus and fabulous…



Collagen loss is a major issue after a certain point in life. A healthy diet can help boost collagen reproduction. Bone broth, B vitamins and amino acids can be a secret weapon against prematurely aging. As for skin care products, adding moisture to your skin is a must. Products with hyaluronic acid is a good way to hydrate.



Correction of skin issues are mostly possible. The most important thing to remember is, improvement takes time. Don’t get discouraged if using a product for a few weeks and you don’t see a change. Some products can make skin worse before it becomes better. This is the process of ‘purging’. Side note: purge can take about three months.

So, what is the best age to start taking care of your skin? I say, the best time to start taking care of your skin is when you ask yourself that question. And the first step to protecting your skin from aging poorly is to invest in sunscreen for your face. Your future skin will thank you for it.

5 Ways To Get Self-Care Right

5 Ways To Get Self-Care Right

Self-care is something that we all need to think about, because looking after yourself is super important. If you don’t, you could find that you burn out, and you can’t do anything at all, so it’s totally worth it to give yourself a little break now and again. But how do you actually do this, and do you really have to go to a yoga class to feel like you’re looking after your mind and body?

Luckily, self-care comes in many different shapes and sizes, so you’re likely to find something that suits you. Here are 5 ideas to get the self-care newbie started.

#1: Switch off

If you’re going to take some time to recuperate from all of the stresses that life throws at you, then you need to switch off… like really switch off. It’s not enough to just chill out on the couch with your phone in your hand; you should try not to go on it for a few hours, and just do something that you really enjoy. If you’re still getting stressed out about emails, then you’re not chilling out enough!

#2: Look after your body

Another simple way to exercise some self-care is to look after your body, by drinking more water and having a healthy, balanced diet. Sure, treating yourself to something every now and again isn’t an issue, but getting your fruit and veggie intake nailed will make you feel on top of the world, so it’s worth giving your body some lovin’. Avoid smoking and alcohol if you can, as this will also help.

#3: Do what you love

Self-care looks different for so many people because we all enjoy different things. Whether you want to look for free spins slots and get your game face on, or you’d prefer to go for a long walk through nature, the important thing is to do what you really love. If you make time for this, you’ll soon find that you’re feeling a lot more fulfilled, so don’t just follow the self-care routes that others lay out!

#4: Have a candlelit bath

Look, we’re not saying that a hot, candlelit bath can fix everything. OK, we might be. Chilling out and really letting your muscles relax is a great form of self-care, and you’ll also come out of the other side feeling clean and comfortable. If you want to add a face mask in for good measure then this is certainly an idea that we can get behind, so get those candles lit, and find the bubble bath.

#5: Reconnect with loved ones

When the world around you seems like a stressful and confusing place, sometimes self-care looks like calling up a loved one. Whether you head out for dinner together or catch up over the phone, it’s just nice to know that the people that you care about are there, and that you can put the world to rights with them. We’d say that the warm, fuzzy ‘love’ feeling was self-care enough, don’t you think?

Enjoy nailing self-care, however you do it!

These Simple Habits Can Help You Look and Feel Younger

These Simple Habits Can Help You Look and Feel Younger

by Guest Blogger, Dana B.

Ever feel like you’re 35 going on 65? Feeling older than you actually are is usually a strong indicator that you need to change your lifestyle habits. Aside from the emotional impacts, feeling older can mean that your physical health is being affected by your everyday habits. Still, it can be tricky knowing which advice to follow when it comes to healthy aging, The best lifestyle changes to make are ones that are backed by research, like the ones below.

Eat More Gut Healthy Foods

Listening to your gut is crucial for important decisions, but it can also be important for healthy aging. According to Gaiam, there are several links between gut health and overall health, including inflammation and lowered immunity, but these changes can be easily reversed to promote healthier aging. While supplements and treating infections are helpful, you can also turn to gut healthy foods to restore the balance in your own internal microbiome. Most people already know that yogurt contains healthy bacteria, but it’s possible to boost gut health with garlic, almond milk, pickles and even dark chocolate. These vitamin-, probiotic- and prebiotic-rich foods either contain the same gut-healthy bacteria or helpful fiber, both of which can help maintain balance in your digestive system.

Find Ways to Maintain Hydration

You’ve heard it over and over again: Hydration is important. Although you may recognize this importance, you may not fully understand the benefits of hydration for your mind and body, especially when it comes to feeling older. For example, hydration can provide an energy boost, improve the appearance of skin, and even promote weight loss. So, you will look and feel younger, no matter your real age. Drinking all that water can be a challenge for many folks, though, which is why it’s useful to have some hydration tricks to make yourself drink more often. Pack a large water bottle in your bag before you head off to work, or add some fruit to your water, to make staying hydrated less daunting and something you start to look forward to each day.

Always Wear Sunscreen When Outside

When people who look and feel younger talk about their habits, they also tend to emphasize the importance of sunscreen use. That means wearing SPF any time you’re going to be out in the sun. Damaging UV rays—which can cause changes to skin appearance and skin cancer—are present whether you can see them or not, and seeing skin damage in the mirror can definitely make you feel older. The next time you’re going to be outside in the daytime, dermatologists recommend applying sunscreen that contains SPF 15 or 30; anything higher might actually provide false skin protection against the sun’s rays.

Stop Following Every Fad Diet

Maintaining a healthy weight can help you look and feel better. If you’re turning to fad diets to achieve that trim body, however, you may actually be risking your health. For instance, one fad diet claims that you can eat bentonite clay (volcanic ash) to help you lose weight, but according to Dr. Anton Emmanuel, gastroenterologist, you’re putting your digestive system, kidneys and heart at risk of failing. So if you want to change your diet, just focus on eating whole, nutritious meals that you can easily prepare at home or obtain from a delivery service if it’s in your budget.

If you Google “healthy aging,” you’re bound to be bombarded by a lot of wellness fads and complicated information. Really, though, looking and feeling younger just takes some simple changes to your basic everyday habits. So drink more water, wear sunscreen, and eat foods that will nourish your gut, your body and your overall health. Because those little, research-backed habits really can help you age better and feel younger.

Beauty Hacks You Should Know About

Beauty Hacks You Should Know About

Hacks! What is a hack really? Well, it is a way to make something quick. To use a product in a new way. To make things easier. Some are life-changing – like the current photo of how you should be packing your suitcase, and others are just a bit smart, like ditching shampoo and learning to co-wash for people with curly hair. 

Image Source

Here are some quick tips to help you manage your skincare and beauty routine a little bit better. 

Sunglasses are laden with sweat and bacteria.

More often than not, people put them straight back on their face without cleaning them. If you have time for a breakout then cool, if not keep a pack of alcohol wipes in the sunglasses case, or your bag – and set a reminder for every day of the summer. Your pores will thank you. 

Ditch shaving cream.

If you are using a razor instead of other hair removal techniques, then next time your shaving use a conditioner instead. It makes the skin slippier, smoother and adds hydration. Many women finding making this switch lessens shaving rash too. 

Cleavage needs some love too.

Sunscreen is not a hack; it is an essential, however; the hack for looking a bit perkier is highlighting in all the right places. If you need a lift, or just really want to feel super confident then try silicone inserts or a great push up bra. If you need a more permanent solution, then Kitto Plastic Surgery might be worth a look. 

Natural make-up remover?

Well, while some of the chemical-filled ones really will do the job, and some micellar waters are for sensitive skin to be even more basic – in a good way – use a reusable cotton pad and some coconut oil. The oil will get rid of every single drop of make-up and is really hydrating. If you are prone to breakouts, then cleanse after as usual. 

Eye cream is essential.

Your eyes take a heck of a lot of damage from the sun, from us not drinking enough water and of course all that laughing we do. It is the first place that is likely to show your age, or even age you. The skin can become dry there too. A rich night eye cream will give some serious hydration. The hack? Use it around your mouth too. It’s gentle enough not to cause a breakout and designed to plump out fine lines and wrinkles. 

Vaseline is still queen.

There are so many other slaves on the market, but if you are looking for a quick fix to pretty much, any beauty problem vaseline is your friend. Dry lips? Vaseline. Chapped knuckles? Vaseline. Need to slick your brows? Vaseline. If you are heading somewhere after work and don’t have your kit with you – a slick of vaseline on your cheekbones will work in place of highlighter too. 

Confidence.

Working on your confidence will be a long term thing really, but you can quickly make yourself feel better by slinging on your favorite lipstick, favorite shoes, and hold that superwoman pose for a few minutes. It will make you feel powerful and ready to take on the world.

Why Blogs Should Be Your Go To For Info

Why Blogs Should Be Your Go To For Info

Image by Karolina Grabowska from Pixabay 

These days, it can seem like everyone is a blogger. Social media sites are bursting with links to blog posts on every subject under the sun, from selling cars blogs to the top ten reasons you should eat carrots. There’s a blog for everything and most businesses, and so many people have something they want to say, and something they want to share with the rest of the world and blogging is the perfect place for them to do that. This, however, leads to skepticism of how reliable blogs are. Most are written by normal people, not experts, and there aren’t laws about what people can and can’t say, so you don’t know if what you are reading is fact. However, as digital news is taking over many traditional news sources, free online news is growing, and although many blogs are outlets for personal opinions, they also serve as legitimate sources of news and information. There are plenty of reasons to trust online blogs and why to go to them as your first point of call and here’s why:

Inside Information

While blogs are not necessarily written by experts, a lot actually is. Rather than being written by writers or experts, the information comes directly from the source itself and give you insider information from an expert actually working within specific fields of interest. They are providing their readers with first-hand knowledge that can help guide the decision-making process.

No Restrictions

Blogs typically are written without restrictions because industry writers typically have more freedom when choosing the types of blogs they write. They don’t usually have a chain of checks and re-checks before being published like online periodical pieces would have. Because of the nature of blogs, even the most controversial of topics are given an outlet for discussion. Plus, blogs are usually informally written, allowing readers to relate to the language and message easily. This is perfect for writers looking to provide informative web content that their target audience can connect with and act on.

Updated Regularly

People who have blog pages often update them regularly meaning that the blog posts are providing evolving information that remains relevant and useful. Site owners don’t want their readers to be turned off by stagnant sites that rarely change, so they put significant efforts into creating interesting content that appeals to their audience. By doing so, blog writers are providing their readers with up-to-date information that is relevant to what happens in the world around them at the present time.

Blogs Are HonestDepending on how you look at this, it could be seen as a negative, but as blogs are able to be subjective and have the flexibility to include a personal slant or bias, they may not always be accurate, but at the same time they will be honest but from that writer. There isn’t usually an accountability structure in place for fact-checking and monitoring, blogs can easily feature outdated statistics or facts that readers are unaware of so there are some things which you have to take with a pinch of salt but, you can do your own fact-checking, but a blog usually has no hidden agenda or sales target so they can be trusted that they are from an honest place.
