Permanent Facial Hair Removal

Suppose you have bushy eyebrows and you want to make them look better and tame, the best option for the perfect arched eyebrows is plucking. By removing hair one at a time, you make sure you create the design you want. Although it is not permanent, you only need to do it once every fifteen days. You only need to buy a good pair of tweezers, which are never expensive. Plucking is fine for the eyebrows; it is not an effective method for the light hair on your face.

An efficacious method for the hair removal is waxing. Although not permanent, this technique will provide good results. You need to assess your tolerance to pain before going for a wax because waxing can be painful.

The last and most effective method is laser hair removal. This procedure is permanent and you will not have to worry about facial hair anymore. What the laser does is to weaken the hair follicle; within a couple of sessions the follicles are no longer able to hold hair and therefore it does not grow back. You need to make sure the follicles are sterile so they do not have a chance of growing hair again. The great aspect of laser hair removal is that you will get permanent results. The drawback though, is that the sessions can be expensive and you may need one or two sessions every month. As I see it, laser is an investment if you have a lot of facial hair.

Face Serum

Ingredients such as petrolatum or mineral oil keep water from evaporating, hence locking in moisture. A serum does not contain such occlusive or airtight ingredients commonly found in moisturizers.

Serums also contain a lesser amount of lubricating and thickening agents, as most of them are water-based. This helps them get absorbed more easily and makes them a great choice for those looking for a lightweight skincare product.

How do serums work?

Moisturizers contain bigger molecules that form a barrier on the skin surface. This tends to lock active ingredients out. Serums, on the other hand, are made up of smaller molecules which makes them fast and easy to absorb. The ingredients penetrate deep within the skin and restore skin health.

In order to ensure that you are purchasing the best beauty product, you should look out for the following ingredients in a face serum.

• Antioxidants
Antioxidants protect skin from damaging free radicals. Generated naturally by the body and found in UV radiation and cigarette smoke, free radicals can cause considerable skin deterioration.

Vitamins C, B and E, pomegranate extract, grape seed extract, green tea and resveratrol, can have potent antioxidant effects, helping restore your skin’s youthfulness.

• Hydrators

Hydrators add moisture to your skin, instead of sealing it like moisturizers do. Hydrators such as ceramides and amino acids can help build strong cell membranes and strengthen the skin’s barrier. These ingredients would help prevent your skin from dryness and fine lines.

• Cell-communicating ingredients

Cell-communicating ingredients like retinol and niacinamide have the ability to regulate skin functions by using existing chemical pathways and receptors. These ingredients complement antioxidants to improve the function of skin cells. They can tell skin cells to behave like a healthy skin cell and can prevent cells causing skin damage from doing so.

Ombre Hair

Keep the hair as healthy as possible. Bleaching basically removes pigment from hair to lighten it and it can be damaging compared to dyeing. Also important to remember is that the technique concentrates on hair ends and lengths which are compromised and can sustain damages compared to newer growths near the roots. To keep damages minimal consider trimming hair before and after ombre especially for dry or long hair. It is a simple way of preventing split ends or making them worse. You should nourish and soften hair once a week using color safe deep conditioner.

Go easy with the colors. When going ombre, it is best that you stick to natural hair colors, however adventurous you might be feeling. For black hair or dark brown hair, the ombre should not be lighter than soft medium or light brown. Light brown hair and blonde hair can have lighter color towards hair ends. To get it right, remember that the lighter the hair the lighter the ombre can go. Avoid being too drastic with your color choices if you want a good finish.

Try as much as possible to avoid harsh lines. Demarcation lines that are too harsh do not look any good. The hair should not go from light to dark too instantly and should instead appear sun-kissed and natural. The hand painting technique can be best to evenly distribute and blend lighter pieces. Mussing up hair strands also achieves the same positive results with the ombre. If you are doing the coloring yourself, consider using a toothbrush after applying bleach to rub color upwards to achieve the subtle gradient effect.

Get a reliable stylist. To avoid a messy ombre, trust a skilled stylist. So much can go wrong when coloring the hair, especially with dark hair you want to dramatically lighten. A stylist will choose the most flattering highlights to match your hair type and facial features. You also do not have to worry about poor product choices when you hire the services of skilled hair colorists to do your ombre.

Some Uses for Baking Soda

You can clean your brushes and combs with a bit of baking soda. By mixing the powder into a bowl of warm water it will instantly have a reaction and remove any dirt that has been lodged in the bristles of your brush.

Cushions and bedding will often have odd smells that are difficult to remove. If you use baking soda on the surface of these household items and furniture, you will remove any odours and moisture that has accumulated over time. Don’t forget to dust it off before using the furniture again.

You can use this kitchen ingredient as a way of cleaning your other kitchen items. The compound will let your stainless steel objects shine once again. It will take a bit of gentle scrubbing but you will be satisfied with the results.

It’s known that baking soda can be used as a teeth whitener but did you know that it can also be used to whiten and brighten other things? Using it in your laundry basket will get your whites bright again. Using it on your floor will make for a perfect tile shiner.

You can also clean the dishwasher with this amazing powder. If you add about half a cup into the machine and run it with no dishes then the dishwasher will smell fresh again and any unwanted stains will be removed. This can be done with most household appliances.

Besides cleaning and making a person pretty, the powder is also incredibly useful for sores and irritated skin. The elements relief the skin and help with the healing process. Just adding it to the skin is a perfect substitute for the expensive ointments and is more than likely to always be on hand.

Get Rid of Bangs

If you do not like extremely straight bangs then avoid the use of a straightener. Replace it with a smaller version of ceramic brush, to style your bangs.

The first technique is really simple, just round your hair on the brush and use a blow dryer for 1 to 2 minutes. After this you will get curvy above eye bangs that look really nice.

Second way to style your hair, is to start braiding any one side of your hair and braid it in the opposite direction. It is really simple to do because you are only required to create a simple side braid with your bangs. Secure your braid with bobby pins and to add some style in it you can push some hair over the braid.

If you do not like braids, then grab your bangs to twist them sideways and away from your hair. After completing your twisting process use a bobby pin to secure it down. Now take the hair and push it over the bobby pin to cover it.

Next, use a round ceramic brush, grab the section and round your hair inwards or outwards. Use a blow dryer for a couple of minutes. Stop brushing before unwrapping your hair and then release your hair. And voila you now have side bangs.

You can style bangs in a nice poofy style as well. Grab the first layer of your bang, spray your hair and tease it with a rat tail comb in a downward direction. Grab other sections one by one and repeat the same teasing process with it. After teasing, comb your hair away from your face to get a smooth texture, push them in an upward direction, grab a bobby pin and secure your hair. If you have thin hair then does not forget to use a holding spray as final touch. You will get a cute little poof.

 

Eyebrow Threading

Some of the main benefits are:-

  • Unlike plucking, in this process, the hair takes much longer to grow back. The hair is uprooted from root to tips which ensure that the hair doesn’t grow back again for at least a couple of weeks.
  • This process does not leave any spot marks. Due the fact that the hair is uprooted completely the areas remain clean and neat. All you can see is the skin
  • In the case of plucking or waxing, hair re-growth is often uneven. Some people complain that their eyebrows have come out thicker and fuller which can really deteriorate one’s look. But in threading, hair grows evenly and gradually.
  • It’s convenient to do. Unlike waxing, you don’t need to do much preparation in this process. All you need is a thread and an expert professional.

Trying it for the first time

Yes, it’s true that trying this process for the first time can be a little painful, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t do it. Before and after the process, just put a layer of lotion or cream over the area. As the pores remain wide open for quite some time, it is not advised to wash the area immediately.

Considering the fact that most women are conscious about how they look, it’s normal for them to splurge high on their makeup. Any kind of cosmetology therapy is available at most salons and parlours. All you need to do is find a salon which you find suitable. Be careful here as doing any kind of beauty therapy in an unknown salon can be a risk; you don’t want that for your face.
