Anti-Aging Stars: 5 Ingredients to Look For in an Anti-Aging Cream

Be a smart shopper!

When you are buying a skin care product, or even any other product, absolutely read the label and have a clear idea of what you are looking for.

So, when you are looking for an anti-aging cream, here are 5 power players that are a must-have to reverse the aging process.

  • Retinol

When you are looking for an anti-aging cream, it is absolutely necessary that retinol is present in it. This is the one-stop ingredient for all anti-aging products.

Retinol is nothing but a Vitamin A derivative that works well to treat fine lines on the skin, wrinkles, spots and saggy skin. It helps you in getting rid of the dead cells, and increases the cell turnover, in return. Moreover, it also improves blood circulation in the skin.

  • Hydroquinone

When you are in the race against age to keep your skin fit and healthy, hydroquinone will come in handy to treat spots and marks on your skin.
How does it work?

There are specific enzymes that trigger the production of melanin in the skin. Hydroquinone blocks these enzymes such that the skin can retain its color.

If you want a product that can even out the spots and marks on your skin and can give you a lighter shade, hydroquinone is an absolute must.

  • Antioxidants

Antioxidants are some of the best weapons against skin wrinkling and drying. Antioxidants tend to transform the harmful molecules produced in our body due to pollution and harmful UV rays into harmless ones.

Thus, antioxidants prevent the skin from being damaged environmentally and promote cell growth and repair. In addition, it is highly recommended to consume fresh fruits and vegetables along with antioxidants to get best results.

  • Alpha-hydroxy acids

The primary job of Alpha-hydroxy acids in skin care products is to refresh the skin and keep it fit and healthy. AHAs basically rejuvenate the skin and impart it a youthful glow. They are thus an integral ingredient of all anti-wrinkling products.

Further, AHAs add radiance to the skin and prevent smooth lines. They also help you get rid of dead cells and prevent damage due to wear and tear.

Besides, they also ensure that other anti-wrinkling products can penetrate faster and more easily into the skin.

  • Sunscreen component

Our skin can suffer from an array of potential issues when exposed to the harmful rays of the sun. So, irrespective of what kind of anti-wrinkling cream you are using, it is essential that there is some sunscreen component in it.

A sunscreen component would not only prevent your skin from tanning, but it would also protect your skin from blotching and sagging.

This is the reason perhaps why you should start applying sunscreen from an early age. Otherwise, the harmful UV rays can go a long way in destroying the skin’s elasticity, collagen, and fibers.

5 Makeup Removal Mistakes That Might Be Adding Years To Your Face Secretly

Congrats! Now, you’re a makeup pro. You glow and look youthful. Just a dab of foundation here and a splash of color there – voila! You are done. You wear sunscreen and have your own favorite eye cream. You’re good to go, right? Well, not really! Something as simple as lack of proper makeup removal technique can add years to your look. No, we are not kidding!

We’re not here to scare you. But we all make certain makeup removal mistakes that we all are guilty of. And these makeup mistakes can cost a lot more than we expected, simply, by adding years to our face. Let’s explore such makeup removal mistakes that we have been doing unknowingly.

5 Makeup Removal Mistakes

You use the same face towel for days

Yes, this sounds a bit tacky but how many of us are actually guilty of doing this? It is highly recommended to change your face towel daily. Free radicals tend to build upon on our face, which are then transferred to face towels, thus giving us those unwanted wrinkles.

You rely too much on face wipes

Makeup removing face wipes don’t do much to clean your skin. Let’s face it! They only help in removing the visible makeup. Further, they dry out the skin, especially around the eyes, thus making crow’s feet all the more visible. The best way to remove makeup it to use water and face wash – that is what is going to help you get rid of that thick layer of makeup you carry all day long.

You’re using an overwhelming cleanser

We called it overwhelming because cleanser is only good at forming a lot of foamy stuff. But that would not cut the makeup. And this is the reason that you see subtle BB cream smudges on your towel after washing your face with a face wash. The best way is to use a makeup remover or a face wash that is made to remove makeup.

You often doze off with open hair

We understand. After coming back home past midnight, making even a simple pony seems like a big task and you often end up sleeping with open hair. What’s more? Makeup residue gets accumulated around your hairline, thus leading to clogged pores and breakouts. Don’t be surprised if you find breakouts on your forehead the next morning!

You often end up skipping the last step

No matter the kind of skin you have, make it a point that you complete the process with a good moisturizer. Seal the lips with a good lip balm after you have removed the lipstick and dab an eye cream.

Finally, all done! Permission granted to hit that pillow as it beckons.

Good night.

Ways Showering Can Affect Your Skin And Skincare

A long and hot shower after a tiresome day is something everyone would love to do. Some people are also habituated to taking showers every day after work.

But people, before you make such decisions make sure you know how taking hot showers affects your skin. Many people have less idea about the showering effects and just take long and hot showers as it is soothing. Regretting later after your skin is already affected is unwise. So, read this article and know how showering affects your skin and make sure you don’t have to regret it later! Read on!

Human skin is made up of three layers which are epidermis, dermis, and subcutis. Hot and long showers affect the epidermis layer which is the outermost layer. This layer is filled with keratin which is responsible for providing defence against outside environment and also help the body skin in retaining moisture. To help keratin retain moisture, a thin oil layer is produced by our body. That’s the biology.

 What happens to our skin when we take long showers?

  • The oil layer is washed off when we take showers. Excessive showering completely washes off this oil thus disallowing keratin retain moisture. So, your skin looks dry and signs of aging like wrinkles can be seen.
  • Although tub time might feel very luxurious, spending more time in a bath tub taking showers can harm your skin by completing making it dry and pale. There is no natural bounce in the skin and we tend to develop folded skin.
  • Excessive showering can cause redness in the skin which gradually turns into itching and peeling. Yes, it is something close to a sunburn. This leads to disrupting of skin’s moisture balance leading to itchy skin.
  • The essential fats and proteins present in the oil layer are washed off thus robbing you of your healthy and glowing skin.
  • It leads to dry skin which can cause infection. The infection if not treated immediately might even lead to skin cancer. Yes. That’s how serious it can get!
  • Itchy rashes are also developed which lessens your beauty. Having a pretty face fails to grab attention if you have rashes all over your skin.
  • Cool showers which can be taken twice in a week can help to keep your hair strong and healthy. Also, there is a natural glow in your skin. But, excessive cool showers as well is a NO.

Thus, both hot showers and cool showers when taken excessively can have adverse effects on your skin. So how do you reduce the effects?

Taking care of skin while taking shower

  • Decrease the temperature of your water once you find out your skin is turning red. Probably, it’s too hot.
  • Use moisturizing products to prevent your oil layer from getting washed off.
  • Do not stay in your bathtub for too long and always make sure the temperature is moderate.
  • Use various skin care products if you are developing rashes and itching. Also, consult a dermatologist if the itches and rashes are increasing.

What is Making Your Skin Dry And What To Do About It?

Dry skin is one of the most difficult problems to tackle. When external phenomena and sometimes internal ones wipe out the moisture from your skin, you are left with a dry patchy skin. The skin needs a good amount of moisture in order to breathe and stay healthy. But the question is what exactly the causes behind dry skin are?

  • The weather

The first thing which is attributed for dry skin is the weather, especially the winters. During the winters the weather is on a drier side and there is a lack of humidity. Both these things rob the natural moisture from your skin and results in dry skin. The air which blows during this period is known to parch the skin which is also detrimental to it. If you think that staying indoors and using the heater would help then you are sorely mistaken as it also adds in stripping the much-needed moisture from the air.

  • The location

It is true that winters can actually leave your skin dry but the location i.e. the geographical location is more often than not responsible for this skin related problem. For instance, if you are living in a region which exhibits desert like conditions then it is pretty normal for you to experience high temperatures. The problem with these places is that although the temperature here is pretty high, but there isn’t much humidity in the air; hence, chances of having dry skin increases.

  • Showers

If you are one of those who like to take long steamy showers, then it is time to rethink. It has been observed that these showers can be soothing for you but are pretty dangerous for your skin. What they essentially do is accelerate the process of drying the natural oil in your body which is important for keeping your skin healthy and moist. Moreover, if you like to swim, then you should be careful about the pool you are using for this purpose. If the pool is highly chlorinated then it can also contribute in the process of drying your skin.

  • Soap

It is true that you need to clean your body to remain healthy. But you also need to be careful about the soap you use for this purpose. If you are using a soap which is made of elements which have an affinity of consuming moisture then it would be prudent not to use it on your skin. What these soaps do is rob the natural moisture in the skin and make them dry.

  • Sunlight

You have to be careful when you step out of your house, especially in the mornings and afternoons. The sun has a tendency of drying up your skin. Thus iprotecting your skin at all times is necessary. The reason you have to be careful here is the UV rays emitted by the sun can penetrate deep into your skin. This extinguishes the moisture within and leaves it drying and saggy.

  • Skin issues

Another reason why you might have dry skin is due to issues or existing skin diseases. If you are already suffering from skin related diseases like psoriasis and eczema, then chances of having dry skin increases.

Beauty and Skin Care Guide for Autumn

The warmer months are fun and all, but they often leave our skin tired and dull.

As the autumn sets in, and the weather transitions itself to colder months, the environment becomes soothing and starts preparing itself for the dip in mercury levels ahead.

This is the right time that you should start taking care of your skin or else it might become dry as the temperature drops.

Here are a few tips which will help you in getting your glow back.

  • Exfoliation is very important

Irrespective of the season, always remember to exfoliate. Dead skin cells start building up and the skin starts peeling off in the autumn. Thus, exfoliate your skin pretty well.

  • Keep your skin hydrated at all times

During autumn, the winds get colder and your skin begins to feel dry. This is why hydration is of utmost importance. It is highly recommended to use a gentle moisturizer to get rid of a dry and flaky skin and to keep your skin hydrated.

  • Apply a face mask

As mentioned before, staying outdoors during the summer months makes your skin look tired. Autumn is the right time to get your glow back. Use a rejuvenating face mask to nourish your skin from within. Try using skin masks that are organic and gentle.

  • Protect your skin with sunscreen

Even if the days are chilly, and the sunshine is mellow, do not forget to apply sunscreen during autumn. Sunscreen is a must and you cannot drop it from your skin care regime at any time.

  • Avoid very long and hot showers

 It might be tempting to take a long, hot shower during autumn when the days are just beginning to turn cold, but avoid it as much as possible. Unnecessarily long showers with warm water absorb the skin’s natural oils and make your skin feel dry and tired. Therefore, go for shorter showers with lukewarm water and use a gentle, moisturizing body wash.

  • Use anti-aging or anti-wrinkle creams

Dry skin is very prone to fine lines and wrinkles. Thus, this is the ideal time to protect your under eyes. Always use an under eye cream before applying any makeup. You should also moisturize your skin well with an anti-wrinkle cream.

  • Moisturize your hands and feet

As autumn sets in and the weather becomes colder, your hands and feet start becoming dry. The skin around your fingers and heels will start peeling. To get rid of this, it is highly recommended to moisturize using a hand and foot cream. Also, don’t forget to use a scrub to get rid of dirt and dead skin cells.

These were just a few simple and easy-to-follow tips through which you can take care of your skin in autumn. What are your views on this? Let us know in the comments below.

Is Permanent Makeup A Real Thing?

Permanent makeup has been making headlines for quite a long time now!

So what is it? We will find out this and much more here in this article!

What is Permanent Makeup?

Permanent makeup or cosmetic tattoos are essentially micro pigment implantations, which might seem similar to tattoos but are actually a bit different from them. The ink that is used for tattoos is not used in case of permanent makeup.

In permanent makeup, much gentler dyes are used, especially to avoid any harsh allergic reactions. There are several kinds of permanent makeup and they are eyeliner, eyebrow makeup, lip liner, and lipstick. The eyeliner in permanent makeup can be applied on the eyelid as well as on the waterline and for the lip color options, there can be a combination of liner and lipstick.

Now, the Burning Question is Exactly How Permanent is Permanent Makeup?

Well, this depends on the quality of the products used and even then, after a long period, permanent cosmetic tattoos start to fade. However, calling it “permanent” makeup is actually correct since the color will not completely disappear, but the quality of the pigment might not remain as good as it was when first applied.

But having stated that, it is also not true that permanent makeup cannot be removed from the skin. That can be done quite easily using laser tattoo removal technology.

Is Permanent Makeup and Cosmetic Surgery Same?

Permanent makeup is not similar to cosmetic surgery and while it can enhance appearances, it is not the same as getting fillers or having surgery done. However, similar to tattoos, in permanent makeup, the pigment is spread underneath the first layer of skin with the help of a needle.

After the initial application, several appointments have to be made in the following three months, to check the healing process and the effect of the pigment. Another important thing that should be remembered is that permanent makeup when first applied, might appear dark, but it will not look fake and is often blended into the skin to give it a very natural finish.

So, Should You Go For It?

While discussing how permanent this type of makeup is, it is important to realize the reasons due to which someone might decide to go for permanent makeup. This will also help in determining how long-lasting permanent makeup actually is.

Given below are a few of the reasons.

  • Your skin might be sensitive to traditional cosmetic products and to avoid allergies and breakouts, permanent makeup is a good solution.
  • You might have mobility/dexterity problems and this does not make it easy to put on makeup every day. In such cases, permanent makeup puts an end to the troubles.
  • You might have very busy schedules and they have no spare time to apply makeup. Permanent makeup can save up a lot of time, especially since it needs no touching up.
  • Permanent makeup is also, at times, used to cover up certain marks on skin like scars, enhance beauty spots or even fill out the thinning eyebrows.

Keeping in mind all the aforementioned reasons, permanent makeup does actually live up to its name for if it does not do so, then its basic purposes would not be fulfilled.  

Why Are Some Women Always Sick Explained!

Linda: Hey! How is your headache?

Rachel: Oww its still there! Feel like someone is hammering my head.

A week later…..

Linda: Hi Rachel. How have you been?

Rachel: Not good. I am having a severe stomach ache. (wincing)

Two days later…….

Rachel: Hey Linda! Do you have any pill for nausea? I am feeling nauseous and bloated today, since the morning.

God knows why are some women always sick!

Does their body’s immune system grow weaker day by day? Or is this some kind of a psychological syndrome where the woman always feels sick but there is actually no sickness dwelling in her?

Girl, Why Are You Always Sick?

If you really get sick all the time, then let’s find out why and how.

  • Maybe you end up consuming wrong foods every time

There is a saying—‘You are what you eat’. Maybe you are not eating what you should. You fall sick due to the consumption of wrong foods like something too spicy, or too sweet or too sour.

You might not know about some undiagnosed allergies and you might have been continuing to take the food that you are allergic to, without its knowledge. That is why you end up falling sick frequently. Women these days choose to stay svelte and skip meals in order to regulate their calorie intake. Skipping breakfast has almost become a usual habit for the women of the 21st century, irrespective of the fact that whether they are employed or homemakers. Skipping your breakfast or any other meals is too unhealthy and this might cause you to feel sick all round the clock.

To be precise, the deficiency of nutrition and the invasion of wrong elements or allergic compounds in a woman’s body may cause frequent sickness and major fatal diseases.

  • Maybe you do not sleep enough

Always falling sick? Do something. Sleep on it! Nothing can be more replenishing and beneficial than a good night’s sleep of seven to eight hours.

Have you ever guessed that your frequent sickness and fatigue might be caused due to the lack of sleep and rest? Modern women are so caught up in their busy schedules that they are never ‘unplugged’ from their electronic gadgets, work files, etc. You sacrifice your night’s sleep for some unfinished project or work file, movies, etc. Maybe this is why you always feel sick and exhausted.

Other conditions that push you towards sickness

There are various other possibilities of women always sick. You can get sick if you are always exposed to unhygienic environments or if you are suffering from immune system disorders, non-allergic rhinitis, and stress.

Wrapping Up

We all have that one friend, colleague, sibling or family member who is always sick. One day it is fever, the other day it’s a stomach ache, the following days it is a back pain, and the list goes on.

Often, it makes us wonder that why are women always sick or it is just a maneuver to grab attention or seek sympathy.

Though there are chances of both the possibilities, remember to be compassionate.

How to Stop Sabotaging Your Fitness Goals

Ugh.. you’re tired of being out of shape.

You stumble across that new popular fitness plan, and decided to commit.
This time it’s no sugar, low carbs, and an hour of exercise a day.

Everything goes great on day one. You have the veggie platter for lunch, chicken and veggies for dinner, and you nail your workout. You’re pumped.

A few days later, you begin craving sweets. You tell yourself, “just once won’t hurt.” Next, you crave something greasy. You skip your next workout, order fast food, and binge eat in front of the TV.
Soon, you begin feeling guilty.
You wonder how you’ll stick to your plan, and just like that, you’re back into your old habits.

Sound familiar?

This is one of the four most common ways that people sabotage their fitness goals. Learn to tackle this challenge, as well as three others, to set yourself up for success.

1. Expecting perfection

That one sweet? Not so bad.
The fast food binge? Not great, but manageable.
Letting a few setbacks ruin your fitness plans? Definitely bad.

Don’t expect perfection in following your new diet or workout plan.

Instead, we suggest that you look for progress and allow yourself one cheat meal a week while you learn to create new habits.

2. Expecting too much too soon

Everywhere you turn, fitness ads claim instant success. Results now. One-week weight loss.

In reality, these promises are too good to be true.
If you are unhappy with your current fitness, it likely results from years of bad habits. How can you expect to turn it around quickly?

Start your fitness journey with the right expectations.
There is no instant gratification.
Fitness is a process that takes time, goal setting, and commitment.

3. Focusing on that single big goal

Goals are a tricky thing.
Setting fitness goals is great, but focusing on a single big goal can be paralyzing.

To avoid being paralyzed by your goal, break it down into smaller goals.

Create attainable goals for each day, week, and month.
Then focus on one goal at a time, and create a plan for attaining the goal.
What will your actions be? How often will you take these actions? How will you measure your goal?
When you accomplish a single smaller goal, then set your sights on the next one.

For example, if my overall goal is to lose 30 pounds, my first goal might be to lose one pound a week.
This is a trackable, attainable goal.
To achieve that I plan on working out 3 days a week. After sticking with this plan for two months I might increase my commitment by following the nutrition plan and adding a 4th workout each week.

4. Fixating on what you can’t have

When you begin a new diet, it is easy to focus on the things you can’t have: cookies, chocolate, fast food, and sugar.
The problem is this often makes you want them even more. To counteract this, quit focusing on what you can’t have, and start focusing on what you can have.

At first, you might fell limited by all of your dietary restrictions. However, while searching for tasty, healthy foods, you will soon realize that the list is actually endless. Options include chia seeds, flax seeds, quinoa, amaranth, millet, and more.
There are so many possibilities!

Healthy eating can taste great, and isn’t as hard as it seems.
Just experiment with healthy recipes to find the foods and spices that work for you.
Combine healthy grains, spices, meats, fruits, and veggies for tasty meals that don’t take hours to make and give you great nutritious meals.

How to achieve your fitness goals

OK, enough about sabotaging yourself.

Just like that last point, we don’t want to focus on what not to do. We want to focus on what you should be doing. To wrap things up, here are four ways to think about your fitness goals that improve your chances of success:

  • Work on making progress. There is no perfection; only progress (and the occasional setback!).
  • Have patience. Change takes time. Fitness is a lifestyle, which takes a lifetime to achieve and maintain.
  • Take small steps. Set small achievable goals and tackle them one at a time
  • Focus on the cans. Spend your time and effort on what you can have, and what you can do.

Lastly, enjoy the ride and look at this as a new adventure!

Say Good Bye to Body Acne with These Tips

Summer is around the corner along with the stubborn and frustrating body acne.  Excessive heat, pollution, and dust are skin enemies and cause uninvited acne.

In here, we’re sharing some easy tips and lifestyle habits to fight body acne and get a clearer skin this season:

  • Hydrate, Feel Great! 

This is perhaps the easiest thing one can do for a healthier body and clearer skin. Make water bottle your all-day companion. Start your morning with lots of water and carry a BPA-free water bottle and sip frequently. This will drain the toxins and help you stay hydrated and, in turn, have a happy acne-free body.

  • Mask it, Honey!

Pamper yourself with a honey mask especially when your skin feels dry/tight/itchy. Honey is antibacterial, hydrating and fabulous for balancing skin pH and reducing acne. Your skin will love this treatment.

  • Veggies Please

Junk the junk food and include more veggies. A balance of vitamins and nutrients is all you need for the body skin to glow and feel alive. Make a bowl of rich green veggie salad to get a good dose of vitamins and nutrients. Healthy food helps to lower inflammation in the body and detoxes it gently and deeply.

  • Sugar? Nah!!

Ease up on the sugar. Refined sugar spikes our blood sugar and hormones levels which can lead to acne while also making you gain weight. Sugar triggers the release of insulin in the blood, which further produces acne-causing hormones in the body. So, next time make sure that you watch the sugar content before buying anything at the superstore.

  • No More Dairy

Avoid eating dairy products like cheese, and milk. They are difficult to digest and produce mucus which can block body pores and cause acne.

  • Goodbye Coffee

It might be hard to say goodbye to the coffee initially, but it will help you in the long run. Caffeine dehydrates the skin, ruins sleep, raises stress and the after effect is early aging and even worse skin. Coffee is known to trigger hormonal acne as well.

  • Don’t Forget The Sunscreen!

Sun damage makes the acne worse and extends its stay. Thus it is essential to apply the sunscreen on exposed body parts. It will help skin in so many ways by making you look younger and youthful.

  • Try a Topical Essential Oil Treatment

Coconut oil has anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties. You can add some drops of tea tree, orange, cinnamon or rose oil to ward off acne from your body.     

  • Don’t Pick or Squeeze! 

Last but most important- After all the DIY remedies, try to have patience while the acne is healing. Avoid squeezing them as this will introduce and multiply bacteria’s on other parts of the skin and make the situation even worse.

Along with the above tips, it is highly recommended to wear loose clothes, sleep well and live stress-free. Go out and flaunt your body with confidence and show the world the real you.
