When Your own Skin Becomes a Prosthetic Old Age Mask

image1

 

Our skin is the one organ out of many that keeps changing with season and age. Where new elements associated with seasons are quite manageable, the skin can become thinner, lose fat, and no longer looks as plump and smooth as it once did with age. We can’t do much about these two variables than to accept these changes.

But, wait a minute, are you in your late 20’s or early 30’s and look beyond your actual age? If yes, then there has to be something that you are not doing the way it should be done which is making you look older than you actually are. Look out for the early signs of skin aging which are not happening to someone of your age.

The warning signs of skin problems itself tend to make us look older than we actually are. So, before our self-confidence takes a hit, here are 5 early warning signs of unhealthy skin that you can keep checking. There is a lot to do about it before it is too late:

Premature Wrinkles– Wrinkles and fine lines are destined to be a part of all of our lives. However, some people develop wrinkles prematurely, and this can be distressing. Environmental factors and lifestyle choices are typically to blame for premature wrinkles, so if you notice a few lines showing up, it’s important to make the appropriate changes to your daily life to eliminate your early skin aging and to prevent new wrinkles from forming.

Dark Spots– Dark spots on the face generally point to an underlying health condition or reaction to medicine, or may be your carelessness towards the skin. Also known as hyperpigmentation, they tend to make the skin look unhealthy and age you. Thank god there are sunscreens to prevent dark spots, so avoid going in the sun without them and avoid exposure to UV light as much as you can. But despite of the precautions, if they still find their way to your skin, get timely treatment.

Uneven Skin– It’s most often the skin that has to bear the brunt when anything goes wrong inside our body. Uneven skin is one such outcome of stressed and overtired body from a lack of rest, dehydration or malnourishment. To avoid uneven skin, make sure to get lots of rest, keep yourself hydrated and have healthy eating habits.

Chapped Lips– You may not realize, but lips also fall under skin, the thinnest piece of skin yet striking part on the body. A chapped lip can get painful if not cared for properly. They might crack and start to bleed or develop sores. Chapped lips also give an appearance of negligence. Keep your body appropriately hydrated and moisturized in order to avoid chapped lips.

Flaky Skin– Rough and dry skin is not only unhealthy, but can be responsible for your bad and overage appearance. The skin gets exposed to a lot of elements during the day that can an adversely impact on it, weather conditions being the primary one. Skin tends to become dry in cold conditions if not moisturized properly. Dry or flaky skin can also pinpoint to a more serious disorder like thyroid condition or psoriasis. Keep your skin properly moisturized and remain hydrated to avoid dry or flaky skin.

Rashes– Do you see skin rashes? They are usually one of the early signs of an allergy or a skin condition. So get your rashes checked as soon as they appear. It might be due to any reaction to a product or point to an underlying condition.

Over time, skin begins to age naturally as a fact of life. We all are ready to accept it but not by certain habits of mistakes. It’s never too late to halt any of the above concerns and there are product ranges like Skin doctors cosmeceuticals which understand this. You can go for a natural face lift or products to help women all over the world to look dramatically younger. We wish you stay young forever!

winter skincare dos and donts

Winter Skincare Do’s and Don’ts

image1

 

Winter – loved by the mind, but hated by the skin. When the weather gets cold, the percentage of moisture in our environment reduces and there is of course the wind, who blows all of the remaining moisture away from our skin. Not to mention the central heating in our homes. Now, when cold and dry weather comes, the keratinocytes (skin cells) lose their water and leave our skin sore. Our skin becomes itchy and much more sensitive to all the damages from the outside. Basically you see that, using just moisturizer, just isn’t enough. Here are some of the things you should be doing and some of the things you definitely shouldn’t be doing during winter.

Do

Switch up some of your skincare products

  • If you were using strong body wash products during summer (when you were fighting with all that sweat), switch to lighter, moisturizing ones.
  • Have you ever heard about the vitamin C serum? This serum is CRUCIAL for skin vitality since it helps your skin to renew collagen which was lost faster during coldness. It reduces wrinkles and rejuvenates your skin
  • Use alcohol free products which have a high concentration of hyaluronic acids in them for the recovery

Use air humidifier

The best way to save your skin from damage is to have home with a healthy level of humidity in it. When your heating is on, the humidity level drops to 10% or less. That is exactly how chapped lips and hands appear. Humidifiers keep the necessary moisture in the air and help your skin health.

Moisturize

Moisturizers protect our skin from all the rough elements in the air. As our clothes get heavier, so should our moisturizers. During summer, we use water-based lotions, but oil-based ones are for the winter. Before applying it, use a toner which is alcohol-free to hydrate your skin. Reapply the moisturizer at least 3 times a day.

Use SPF

People often don’t realize that the UV radiation during winter is almost the same as it is during summer. It has nothing to do with the warmth. This radiation damages your skin big time, but during winter you just don’t notice it. Make sure that you cover all your exposed places (face, neck, hands) with sunscreen that has at least SPF 30.

Hydrate

Make sure that you are always hydrated. An average person needs approximately 8 glasses of water a day in order to function properly. Water helps your digestion and your brain to function and of course, your skin to look its best.

Take care of your hands as well

Eczema and brittle nails aren’t a nice thing to see, right? In order to avoid this from happening, make sure that your hands are covered with a thick layer of hand cream and pampered with a nice and stylish pair of gloves.

Don’t

Have long, hot showers

Yes, jumping in a hot shower after a cold day, feel just as good as jumping into a cold shower after a summer morning jog. One of these two is great for your body, and the other one is terrible. Can you guess which is which? Let’s put it this way: you know what happens to a chicken when you put it in a hot water? It becomes your lunch. You need to understand that hot water strips all the natural elements from our skin and makes it even dryer than it already is. Instead of steaming your entire bathroom and feigning that you are taking a shower in the deepest depths of hell with the devil himself, switch to a pleasant lukewarm water. You will get used to it eventually.

Cover your dry skin with just makeup itself

You MUST exofilate your skin before applying makeup on it. If you skip exofilation, the makeup you put on will make your skin look flaky and blotchy, and we don’t want that. Every little crack you have will be 10 times more visible. To exofilate quickly, simply gently rub a drenched washcloth over the dry area. After that use a moisturizer and primer and then put on your makeup.

Forget about your lips

Lips are skin too, you know? And did you know that UV lights can damage your lips as well as your face, back or any other body part? Make sure that you always carry a lip balm or a lip block in your purse and on your lips, which has a high amount of SPF in it.

Remember, take care of your body – it is the only place you have to live in.

Top 5 Fashion Accessories for 2017

image1

 

As the year of 2016 has almost passed, we should take a peek at the up and coming fashion trends for 2017, or to be more specific, at the accessories that will restyle your look. Keeping up with the trends is not always that available (we’re talking about the budget limitations), since you can’t spend all of your money on new outfits that come and go with every season. However, there’s no need to buy completely new clothes when you can buy fashionable accessories and create new and trendy outfits. Therefore, we’ve come up with the list of top five fashion accessories that will be under the spotlight on the 2017 fashion scene.

Necklaces

The star from the 90s, the choker necklace, has made its way back and is planning to stay for at least another year. If you’ve been following the trends, you probably have your own collection of chokers. Although the classic black choice made of satin, plastic or velvet will always have the place in the fashion world, you might consider taking it to another level in 2017 by opting for heavy metal chokers that you’ll be wearing both with your fanciest outfit and your casual white tee and jeans. What makes these next-level chokers so great is the fact that you can combine them with almost any type of neckline, from a strapless gown, to a casual turtleneck.

Earrings

One of the main features of earring trends for the next year is mismatching. This jewellery trend has made its way from the runway to the streets, so you can find a single earring options in almost every jewellery store. The trick with mismatching earrings is that the more different they are, the better effect and more unique look you will achieve. There are endless possibilities, and if you’re not used to experimenting, but you’re willing to try, this a perfect way to start. Another trending feature for wearing earrings is multiple piercings and earring stacking. Unlike mismatching, stacking requires more attention, so you’ll have to combine different earrings with more care.

Belts

Among the top must-have fashion accessories, belts cannot be left out, since they play an important role in completing any type of outfit. Belts are one of those accessories that can transform old outfits into new ones in no time. Obi belts have been one of the focuses of New York Fashion Week. These thick belts can be used in a variety of ways to form a fashion statement, so you can’t enter 2017 without one. A simple, but elegant black dress can be complemented with a bright leather obi belt. Skinny belts are another popular choice and you can wear them both around your waist and hips.

Glasses

The list of top five fashion accessories wouldn’t be complete without mentioning glasses. For an elegant and chic look, you should opt for a pair of cat eye glasses that will accentuate your eyes and makeup. If you want to achieve a more unique and funky look, glasses with brightly colour frames with unusual patterns are just what you need. When it comes to sunglasses, they are another item on the must-have list. If elegance and authenticity is your first choice, you should go with Carrera sunglasses. On the other hand, round dark glasses will go perfectly with jeans and a casual tee.

Bags

A more stylish version of fanny pack for the following year is also referred to as “belt bags”. The new edition entails purses on belts around the hips, which can also be worn over the shoulder. Furthermore, an innovative minimalist line of handbags presents an elegant design in different styles. You can opt for a handbag that can be used as a tote, cross-body, backpack and satchel, and you’ll get both style and functionality.

Simple, but stylish accessories can make a lot of difference when it comes to restyling old outfits. The following year will open up many possibilities, and you are only to follow your imagination in combining new with the old.

New Year’s Eve Nightclub Makeup Tips

 

image1

 

 

How to look great this New Year

If you’re hitting the London clubs this New Year’s Eve our makeup tips will really help you to stand out from the crowd.

London is a great party city at any time of the year with hundreds of fantastic bars and clubs, but at New Year’s Eve it really comes into its own.  If you’re heading to London’s best nightclub this New Year’s Eve you’ll want to make sure that you look your best. Luckily, New Year’s Eve offers a great opportunity to step out of your comfort zone and try something different when it comes to your makeup.

Go for sparkle

Adding a bit of glitter and shine can really help to glam up your makeup. After all, if you can’t sparkle on New Year’s Eve, when can you? For a high impact look try covering your eyelids with a glittery gold or silver eyeshadow – just make sure you apply it before the rest of your makeup so that any excess glitter can be easily wiped away. If this seems a bit too ‘full-on’ there are subtler ways of making your makeup shine. For example you could play up your lips with a metallic effect lipstick, or draw attention to your hands with a sparkly nail polish. If you’d prefer to glow rather than sparkle, try applying an illuminating highlighter which will catch the light and draw attention to your features.

Be bold

You want your party makeup to make an impact and to look different from your everyday look, so be brave and ditch pale neutral colours in favour of bolder shades. The dim lights of a nightclub mean that you can get away with much stronger makeup than you can in natural daylight, and rich shades such as magenta, emerald greens and deep shimmering blues look especially effective in this sort of environment. Pairing bold eyes and lips isn’t necessarily a makeup ‘no-no’, but it does take a practiced hand, so if you’re a makeup novice it might be best to focus on just one feature.

Make it last

When you’re dancing in a hot club it’s all too easy for your previously perfect makeup to slide off your face, undoing all your hard work and leaving you looking less than glamorous. To avoid this, it’s important to lay the foundations (pardon the pun) and prepare your skin properly. A good facial primer under your foundation will help to smooth and mattify your skin, remove excess oil and significantly increase the staying power of your makeup, while a separate eye primer will help to prevent your eyeshadow from creasing. When it comes to eye makeup you should also consider using waterproof mascara and eyeliner to avoid running and smudging. Finally, finish off with a matte pressed powder to ‘fix’ your makeup in place and prevent shine, helping your makeup to last as long as you do!

Relax and enjoy

Getting ready to go on a night out is all part of the fun but don’t spend too much time obsessing over the details. By all means put some effort into your appearance but don’t stress about getting every element picture perfect. New Year’s Eve is all about letting your hair down and having fun, and a great smile will do more for your appearance than perfect makeup ever will. So no matter what makeup look you choose, make sure you enjoy yourself this New Year’s Eve.

Finding Your Ideal Dress

Finding Your Ideal Dress – Top 3 Hacks

image1

 

You know how they say that clothes don’t make the man, right? Well, they left out one huge part which is that clothes can affect the way the person feels about themselves, especially when it comes to women. The need to always look our best is in our blood, so we are always searching for those fabulous heels, great pants that make our bum look awesome, and most of all, we are always searching for that one perfect dress in which we feel, and have that million dollar look. Finding a perfect dress is not easy, especially now when there are so many different shapes and sizes – I think that if I would try on one different type of dress every day, it would take me about 5 whole years to try them all out. Of course, why would anyone do such thing, right? Well, if you hadn’t stumbled upon this article today and read these advice, you would have to.

1) Know your body shape

Although the society tries to convince us that all women on earth should be 170 cm tall with small waist, round butt and D cups, we are all still aware that this is impossible. Every woman is unique and beautiful in her own way, and there are not 2, not 3, but 8 different female body shapes:

Straight

This is the most common body type. Your hips and bust are proportional, your bum is rather flat than round, waist isn’t defined very much and you first gain weight in your torso and later in arms and thighs.
When buying dress for this body shape, crucial is to make sure that your upper and lower part stay proportional, and accentuate your waist in the same time.
Pay attention to belted dresses, ones with V or U necks, ones with structured shoulders and the ones which are full and flow around your bust.

Pear

Pear shaped ladies have larger hips than bust, defined waists, long neck and slim arms and shoulders and they gain weight first in their bum and legs and later in upper body.
When buying dresses for this body shape, make sure that you create a balance by adding volume to your upper body and emphasizing your waist.
Pay attention to dresses with fitted waists that fall nicely all the way to your knees, V and U necks, and bright colored ones with bold patterns.

Spoon

Your bust is smaller than your hips which have “shelf” appearance, waist is defined, you gain weight in tummy first and easily get love-handles.
When buying dresses for this body shape, the key is to deemphasize the tummy and draw all of the attention to your torso and legs.
Pay attention to strapless dresses, belted dresses, dresses with embellishments around your bust, and play with the lengths – show those legs sister!

Hourglass

Perfectly balanced hips and bust followed by a defined waist and rounded shoulders which are nicely aligned with your hips.
When buying dresses for this body shape, make sure that you dress your bottom and top part of your body equally and accentuate your waist in the same time. Basically, you can rock any type of dresses, from belted ones, over strapless ones, all the way to the wrap ones. Lucky!

Top hourglass

Basically, it is the same as the previous one, the only difference is that your bust is slightly larger than your hips.
The key is in balancing your bust with your lower body and accentuating your waist with clothes that will fill your lower half.
Opt for dresses with V necks, wrapped ones, A line dresses in darker colors.

Inverted triangle

The upper part of your body is larger, shoulders are broad, back are wide, hips are slim and waist is subtle.
The key here is in trying to create that hourglass effect by choosing clothes that accentuate your hips and bottom and add curves to them. Make sure that dress isn’t too short because it will create a top – heavy look.
Opt for dresses with narrow V necks, A-line dresses, and dark colors.

Oval

Your hips are narrow, your bust is large, waist is undefined and it is your widest part, your neck is short and you gain weight in your stomach and back.
You must De-emphasize your middle area and define your waist.
Look for dresses which are belted, square or wide V necks, wrap dresses or ones with tiered, or flared bottom parts.

Diamond

Your hips are way broader than your shoulders and your bust, your waist is the widest part of your body and it is undefined, your upper legs carry some weight as well and your arms are slender.
The key is to create a waist and in the same time to balance your shoulders with your hips.
Belted dresses, dresses with boat – necks or princess sleeves, and straight bottom parts that fall nicely from widest part of hip are perfect for you.

2) Materials matter

Different seasons and occasions require different fabrics. If you don’t like ready-made dresses and are more into tailored ones, you can find all the fabrics online. Cotton, chiffon or satin dresses are for warmer months and wool, polyester and velvet ones are for colder months.

3) Know your style

By this I mean that you have to buy something you will really wear. If you are not much of a party chick, why would you buy more than 2 party dresses? If you have only edgy, leather and pointy accessories why would you buy a floral dress? Take time and figure out what you usually wear and go with it.

That would be it. I hope my advice helped you.

5 Tips on How to Reinvent Your Look

It can happen to anyone – one day you wake up and realise how bored you got with the way you look. Usually, people can’t even determine what’s the thing that they don’t like, but it can be basically anything – same old haircut or hair colour you had for years, a few extra kilos you always wanted to lose, a colour palette of your wardrobe, and so on. However, it’s amazing how changing a few details about yourself can change your whole perspective, and help you get your confidence back. Here are some tips on how to reinvent your look.

Start with your hair

Finding a hairstyle that suits your face, body, and personality is not an easy path, and once you find it -you might stick with it for years. However, a little change can come in handy so reconsider your hair length or colour. It doesn’t even have to be a drastic change – dyeing your hair a few shades lighter, or cutting bangs can do wonders. Even a tiny detail such as changing your hair parting can help reinvent your whole look.

Update your wardrobe

Fashion is one of those areas where you can experiment as much as you like until you finally find your style. If you got bored with your wardrobe, try treating yourself with a nice coat or boots. Also, consider making a U-turn and changing your whole style – it’s never too late for that. If you’re not sure where to start, try imitating a famous person’s style at first. Experiment, try different combinations and be patient – you’ll find your style eventually.

Reconsider your tattoos

That old tattoo you got when you were 17 doesn’t have to stay with you forever – at least not with the latest technology. Book an appointment with a trustworthy tattoo removal specialist and start a new chapter in your life. Also, if you’re not ready for a new permanent change on your skin, you can always opt for a temporary tattoo – think henna or metallic flash tattoos which have been trending for the last few seasons.

Upgrade your smile

Your lips and teeth define your face and a lot can change in your appearance if you decide to whiten your teeth, or perfect your pout. Teeth whitening is a relatively inexpensive procedure after which you’ll surely look younger and healthier. As for your lips, you can opt for plastic surgery or you can go for temporary options, like those popular lip plumping products. Even a bold lipstick colour can make a change, so go ahead and step out of your comfort zone.

Reshape your body

If you’re not satisfied with your body, change it. Sign up for a gym membership or force yourself to go for a jog before work. Start with little things like 15-minute workout routines until you create a habit. Also, consider balancing your diet. It doesn’t have to be a drastic change – start cooking more homemade meals, avoid fast food, eat regularly and soon your body will begin to transform.

Self-esteem comes from feeling good in your own skin and a healthy level of it can be beneficial both for your physical appearance as well as for your mental health. So, don’t be afraid to try a few new things but don’t go overboard. Whatever you do, adjust it to your personality. Go ahead – call your hairstylist or find that gym card you got months ago – and start working on yourself!

fashion statement

Fashion Musthaves – Fall 2016

With the NYFW behind us and a glorious, red-and-rusty fall ahead of us, it’s time we recalibrated our impressions and did a little fashion forecasting for the season.

Judging by what we saw on the NYFW runways, the season we are upon is going to be one amazing fashion rollercoaster filled with so many juxtaposed styles, materials, colors and fabrics that we almost feel dizzy. Naturally, designers made sure there’s something for everyone so, this time around, the fashion variety came in handy – just as it always does.

Let’s explore the world of statement fashion for the upcoming fall and decide on the styles that will take:

All Things Lingerie

The world instantly went crazy over lingerie inspired outerwear, and we can understand why; the naughtiness behind the cuts, the silk and lace dominance and the overall casual yet superbly chic oomph of the trend is, in lack of a better word, captivating. Combined with pieces like jean trousers, a lingerie top will instantly take your outfit from 0 to a 100, and a lingerie inspired dress for a date out will ooze confidence, sweet edge and a break from all-things-expected.

Statement Fur

A holdover from this past fall, fur – both real and faux – made a strong showing on catwalks and it looked amazing. It was showcased in various forms, bold colors and prints and designed in such a way that it will be, without a doubt, the street-style crowd pleaser. We can’t wait to see it paired with some wicked pieces under it.

Shearling Bombers

If you thought aviator-style shearling jackets are out, you thought wrong. This fall they are shown with everything from kick flares to midi dresses and, surprisingly, they do look chic. Don’t be surprised to see them paired with lingerie dresses and silk boots. It’s a crazy fashion climate out there!

Ruffled up Joy

Often presented in laughable proportions on runways, ruffles have rarely made their full swing in the actually-worn fashion. However, a surprising twist of things was this year’s show of ruffles with designers like Jill Stuart and Cushnie et Ochs successfully fusing structured high-fashion ruffles with wearability. We’re excited!

Plaid Overcoats

Plaid is boring; there, we said it. However, with designer labels like Calvin Klein and Victoria Beckham, plaid is twisted for upgrade and approached in a much subtler, cleaner and muted way which gave it a whole new dimension. Plaid is used on everything from outerwear to cocktail dresses, and we’re yet to decide if we’re liking it or not.

Off-the-Shoulder

Luxe-looking dresses with subtly sexy silhouettes and dramatic blouses revealing shoulders at great length are the new craze of 2016. Truth is, we did notice the off-shoulder moment fighting for a comeback back in 2015 but we never thought it would happen this fabulously, this fast.

Dusty Pink & Yellow & Shades of Tan

While you may think these colors are more suited to spring than fall, think twice. Combined well, the colors look best when coming in form of separates with an autumnal feel, such as turtlenecks and coats.

As for tan, it’s obviously not going anywhere, still; tons of skirts, pants and knits ooze a sexy, chic vibe and we’re counting on all-tan-combos possible – from muted khaki to soft camel.

Gold Metallic Army

Gold metallic is happening and designers are making it wearable and luxurious-looking through smartly tailored jackets, pants and coats. We’ll see.

Pantsuit Chic

Pantsuit is the new power suit and while you might think it’s looking dull and old, it’s not. This one is a perfect staple of ladies fashion and we’re pleasantly surprised it’s looking as chic as it is. Often colorful, slim, stylish and sporting a diversity of necklines, the new power suit is just as suitable for the office as it is for a night out.

Choke Me to Style

Yes, the ‘90s are back but they’re looking so chic! Chokers are the new it accessory of the season and you can wear them in any color or thickness you like. Even the simplest of T-s will look spectacular with a choker added. It’s fabulous.
