A Perfect Shave Tips!

A Perfect Shave Tips!

For those who do not like waxing, shaving is still there. But which is more annoying at the end of the day! For best results and smooth legs as long as possible, here are some tips.

Always take a shower or a bath with warm water before shaving. This will soften the hairs and make the pores wide open and thereby facilitates shaving. While shaving natural oils of the skin, dirt and sweat can interfere with shaving and create debris between the blades, which makes the razor ineffective. Always use a good body cleanser before shaving, or even better, an exfoliating cleanser. 

A razor blade has a life. You can stretch as long as possible to save money, but the quality of shaving will decrease. Manufacturers recommend throwing after 10 shaves. Personally, I stretched a little beyond, but the more we use the blunt blade hair grows faster and legs are the rougher end of the day. Shaving in the opposite direction of the hair growth allows regrowth slowed because it shaves closer, but it may cause more irritation. If you have sensitive skin, stick to your skin and shave in the direction of growth. The goal is to be comfortable.

Exercise the least possible pressure on the razor. We may hurt and irritates our skin because we pressed too hard on the razor handle! To take full advantage of shaving time without it becoming a chore, it is better to start with the easiest areas, such as legs, and finish with the most difficult, such as the armpits and groin. Always use a shaving product that contains moisturizers. Gels or shaving woman shaving cream to help soften, soothe, moisturize and nourish the skin while shaving.

And to top it all, it is very important to finish with a milk or a moisturizer is applied immediately after shaving to soothe and nourish the skin, which was attacked by the waves. The hydration makes the skin softer and prevents dead skin. For hard to reach areas, take your other hand and stretch the skin to access them.

Did you know that the sun is responsible for about 95% of the signs of ageing?
What makes us to say that sunscreens are, to date, the best anti-ageing ingredient? A night cream does not need sun protection, but any day cream should have a sun protection.


The peptides are part of anti-ageing ingredients most successful to date. There are several kinds of peptides, but peptide is a chain of amino acids which has the property of stimulating the production of collagen in the skin, reducing wrinkles. The advantage of the peptide is also being made of small particles, which are able to penetrate into the deeper layers of the skin, which gives better results than one ingredient that acts on the epidermis.


Retinol is a derivative of vitamin A. Several derivatives of vitamin A are used in skincare, but retinol is from an animal source. Retinol has the effect of stimulating the natural production of collagen, which fills wrinkles and smoothes lines. For real results, it is absolutely essential to buy a cream that contains retinol encapsulated a bottle “airless” or retinol ampoules because retinol is sensitive to air and light.

Vitamin E

There is a ton of vitamins that are good for your skin! I decided to focus on vitamins E and B, because I think they should be reflected in all anti-ageing creams!
Vitamin E is actually present in almost all anti-ageing treatments. It acts primarily as a potent antioxidant. It protects the skin from free radicals. It also helps the skin to repair itself and acts as an anti-inflammatory. 

In addition, it stimulates the production of collagen supports the growth of cells and accelerates regeneration.

Vitamin E, added cream helps the skin to have a more youthful appearance prevents and helps reduce fine lines and wrinkles.

Vitamin B!

Vitamin B, when it is less frequently discussed in health care. But we appreciate its more virtues. When we talk about vitamin B, actually we are talking about several vitamins because it is a family of vitamins B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B8, and B12. In general, vitamin B is a great responsibility for our skin glow. Our skin needs vitamin B to maintain healthy growth and renewal. 

Vitamin B12, for example, is essential for cell reproduction and vitamin B12 deficiency can cause dry skin, wrinkles, acne, etc. And the B8, biotin, forms the basis of skin cells. Without enough of them, we can end up with dermatitis, itching, skin peels, etc. As for B3, niacin, it helps the skin to retain its moisture, giving skin plumper, hydrated and less wrinkled. It also has anti-inflammatory properties to relieve dry, irritated skin. Creams containing vitamin B can give the skin a healthy glow almost instantly while hydrating cells and increasing skin tone.

Anti-ageing ingredients -1

Anti-ageing ingredients -1

There are lots of anti-ageing products in the market and in each product contain different ingredients. Therefore which is the best? , what product best suits us?
Hence it is important to know more about the ingredients in the anti-ageing creams. All the ingredients we are discussing here need not be in the order of importance. Since each skin differs from the other the need for the ingredient also varies.


AHAs (alpha-hydroxy acids) and BHA (beta hydroxy acid), or fruit acids are exfoliated chemicals that remove dead skin cells on the surface of the skin. They are used for a decade by dermatologists to do, what is called a peel, which removes the top layer of the skin by stimulating cell renewal and collagen synthesis and Elastin (these two elements form the main matrix of the skin), which reveals a completely new skin.

Peeling gives a fresh and a super smooth, brighter, softer, more toned and elastic, skin.
Counter, we found in varying concentrations. Moreover glycolic acid gives best results so we can say without any doubt that the AHA and BHA are among the best anti-ageing ingredients.

Hyaluronic acid

Hyaluronic acid is a kind of polymer obtained by bacterial fermentation. It is found naturally in the skin (called the matrix polysaccharides). It is a fundamental substance of the skin, which acts by filling the space between the other elements thereof. It fills in the spaces by binding large quantities of water. This acts as a filler in the natural skin.

 Hyaluronic acid is an almost identical imitation which creates the same effect. Synthetic polymers reproduce the matrix of polysaccharides in water swelling. The hyaluronic acid spheres will swell in contact with water and retain a large amount, which remains in the epidermis. The epidermis, being super hydrated, looks plumper and less withered, which decreases the appearance of surface lines and wrinkles.

Beware of phthalates in cosmetics!

Beware of phthalates in cosmetics!

I came across an article about a study on phthalates, conducted by the University of Washington in St. Louis on about 6000 women. This study shed more light on the potential danger in using these toxic ingredients in the beauty and health products; hence I wish to Share this with my readers.

Phthalates are a group of chemicals derived from phthalic acid. They are used in a variety of products. They are widely used in the manufacture of plastics and cosmetic products. This phthalates prevent the varnish from crack and hence it is widely used in nail polish. Phthalates are the binding agents and they increase the penetration of cosmetics on the skin hence it is used in perfumes, eye shadows, skin moisturizer, hair sprays and liquid hand wash and soaps.

Since they are used more than fifty years its toxicity is well known. Test of phthalates of higher concentration on animals shows decrease the fertility, weight loss, fetal death, malformations, negative effects on liver, kidneys and reproductive health of the male. Latest findings say some phthalates are endocrine disruptors which directly affect the hormonal balance. 

The study shows that phthalates cause early menopause in women at a higher degree. According to the study, women whose urine contains more level of phthalates in blood and urine had their menopause two or three years earlier. But the study could not find the reason why some women are more exposed to phthalates than the others. 

In the present world we are using more of PVC, plastics, shoes, some kind of fabrics, toys, ink and pains, detergents, building materials, medicines, perfumes etc hence there is much possibility for the health hazard. Fortunately, we heard the early warning and we have to act accordingly.

Tips for eye makeup!

Tips for eye makeup!

Many of the people don’t know-how I prevent smudging, stains, powder falling under the eyes, blurred look bad, which exceeds, etc. Hence I shared this stuff with you today.

Don’t exceed the outer corner of the eyelid!

It is not easy to observe the the imaginary line between the outer corner of the eye and the end of the eyebrow. There are two ways the first one is asking the person to hold a folded handkerchief exactly where the line should be or the second one is to keep a least sticky tape and it should be removed once the makeup is over. The dark eye shadow should never exceed this line.

To prevent eye powder or flakes fall under the eye!

This is one of the most common problems! There are few techniques to overcome this problem. Use a paper towel folded into half and hold it tightly with your hands and towards the skin and it will adhere to the skin. In other method apply a lot of loose powder around the eye with a brush the skin should be thoroughly filled with the powder and it can be wiped out once the eye shadow was applied. This prevents the paint from sticking to the skin.

To prevent smudging mascara application

So many people get smudged when applying mascara. To avoid this problem, there is one simple technique. Simply place your finger or a pencil horizontally behind the eyelashes during the passage of the brush, and press the brush against the finger so that the eyelashes stick it. This technique also has the advantage of better curl the eyelashes (as they are pressed against the finger) and better separation, since stronger based on the brush. The finger is then stained, but it is much easier to remove everything on a finger than in the face. If you put mascara on the bottom lashes, it is best to go with the pencil, because the finger is too big for this section. Same has to be done with upper lids; if they are also very short.

For perfect eyebrows

If you are having any difficulty in creating two rows of symmetrical eyebrows and of the same size, eyebrow stencils are perfect. They exist in many forms. Once you have found yours just fill the holes with a pencil or powder eyebrow and presto, you have a perfect shape! For those who have not the eye, there is a version that carries with elastic all around the head. Thus, the eyebrows are the same height!

For liquid eyeliner flawless!

It is very difficult for a beginner to make beautiful eyeliner. If you are a beginner and have an uncertain hand, the technique of drawing number works. Simply draw several small points at strategic locations and then connect them.

Finally, it is never good to keep a spot or a burr, if it happens during makeup doesn’t get panic. Simply dip a cotton swab in the liquid foundation and then roll it on the spot. Then add a touch-up powder and viola. Either of them can’t see.

What is a Perfect Skin?

What is a Perfect Skin?

Come on, I confess: 
I’m a little fascinated by the beauty, Constance Jablonski. Constance is one of the best models who is admired by most. I think she has a grace and elegance both extremely simple and unreal, I am correct know? For example; in this above photo also she wears zero makeup, maybe a little mascara I guess but that is all nothing more is added to her natural beauty. Her skin is beautiful.

What about the pores?

Certainly, the idea is not to compare but shedding light on awareness. She is on top with the goodness of art which render her the accolade in beauty. I know everyone wants to remove the pores in their skin, as if they do not exist, as in the above hyper retouched photograph. 

One of my cousins who are very perfectionist in beauty speaks to me over the years all about pores but luckily she was not affected by the new craze of poreless skin. She even abandoned the idea of having a super matte skin, while it had been her obsession for long years.

From her experience, I can conclude that you cannot control a shiny skin, apart from moisturizing but it will always shine a little. Today; In her views, a good skin that is at its best is elastic, moisturized and soft. For her, she understands her pores will never disappear because she has a skin of different nature so she has to live with it.

But when she wants to have a nickel complexion she is doing make up for herself and that is enough for her. And now she no longer seeks perfection. What is your idea about perfect skin? Will you accept nature or do you feel more for having a beautiful skin if so then it is your struggle for every day.

Everything There Is To Know About Retirement

Everything There Is To Know About Retirement

Not going properly for retirement can leave you in quite the rush if you end up on your golden years. While it can be tricky to save and make the ideal plans, this article will show you some pointers about what to do. Use the following information that will help you get better prepared.

Prepare yourself emotionally for retirement, since the change can hit you hard. While you may be looking forward to all that rest and comfort, lots of people become depressed when they stop working. Schedule yourself some helpful activities, and do things that keep you feeling as if you have a definite purpose in life.

Establish reasonable goals for retirement. Reaching too high in the skies may result in disappointment if you don't have the resources to strike them in the first location. Establish very conservative goals and increase them slowly as you hit them year by year. This will also keep you from making rash decisions as you save.

Catch up on all the credit cards that you've got outstanding. This is important since it will lower the amount of interest you will pay over time, which you might be placing into a retirement account. Look after the bigger credit cards and work your way down.

Do not be afraid to ask questions. Unfortunately, the problem many people face today is not really knowing enough about their retirement options to make a determination. Ask friends, family members, and coworkers about their retirement plans and your available alternatives. You will be amazed to learn that there's a world of possibilities waiting for you.

Can you feel overwhelmed due to lack of saving? You could always start now. Go about your finances to ascertain the amount you can save monthly. Do not freak out if it is not quite as much as you would like. Something is going to be better than doing nothing, and the faster you begin you're likely to get better investments made.

Consider waiting a long time to use SS income, if you're able. It'll make your monthly allowance much more. In case you have additional income or retirement funds, this is simpler to do.
Take some time to consider your medical care choices. As people age, they frequently face declining health. Medical bills can often add monthly expenses which weren't originally planned for. Be certain that you care for your body at all times.

When you wish to save money for retirement, make it a point to have a bank account set up that you can't touch for any reason. This way, you will have something to use when you are done working. Ask the lender you are working with what sort of choices they have in regard to savings accounts.
Traveling to popular destinations is something which lots of retirees look forward to. Since travel can be quite expensive, it is sensible to establish a travel savings account and add too it as much as possible during the working years. Having enough money to enjoy the trip makes traveling not as stressful.

Do not burn any bridges on your career as you confront retirement, because situations can change quickly! While it may feel good to tell your boss how you have actually felt about him all these years, you might need to return to work part-time and will want great references. Think first before you sign-off on chances.

Do not forget to factor in your partner when planning for retirement. The two of you will need to be putting away money to make sure your comfort. Having said that, what if one of you does not make it to retirement? Will the other be able to live on what money is left in the moment?

If you have not got as much saved up by 65 as you need, you can think about working part-time to compensate. You might also find a new job that's easier on you physically but keeps you moving mentally. It may pay less, but you can find it even more enjoyable.

Even when you've got a 401k or retirement plan, strongly consider an IRA account for greater savings. You may contribute up to $5,500 annually, or even more after age 49. The tax savings vary depending on which sort of IRA you choose, but they are too strong to ignore.

Make certain you understand how Social Security works. It's imperative that you know what you're entitled to and if is the ideal time for you to document. The Social Security site has a great deal of information to get you prepared for retirement. Spend some time reading up on it for yourself prepared.

Think about consulting or teaching during your retirement. As you will have a nest egg set up, you won't really require full-time income year round. Alternatively, you can teach classes or perform freelance advising to customers when it suits you. You will have freedom of program and still be earning some money.

Find out what your benefits from the Social Security Administration will be. Even though they will mail you an update annually, you may also go online to get this information at any time. This gives you a great idea of just how much you'll get when you do retire.

Remember the magical age of 70.5. At this age, it is mandatory that you take minimum distributions from your IRAs and any work retirement funds. If you do not do this, you could find some unbelievable steep penalties, as large as 50 percent of the sum which should have been withdrawn during this month.

Can you see retirement on your future now? It's nothing like planning a trip to the supermarket, but it does not have to be as complex as it might appear. Continue to find new information so you can work towards the retirement you desire. You'll be glad that you made the ideal plans and can concentrate on what you would like to do during your later years and today the way you are going to have it done.
