Little Secrets about Beauty

POSITIVITY

Positive and optimistic attitude is important and associated with youth, why you ask? According to statistics, it shows younger people have not experienced real life challenges, therefore they may appear happier and more upbeat, making them look younger than what they are … I disagree, there have been many instances where an individual faced a life threatening obstacle, illness, or some type of traumatic experience, but that very same individual chose to feel the pain and release it, leaving room for personal and spiritual growth, equating to a positive outlook in life, and eventually moving on. So, why not begin today, and try to do out best in loving ourselves, our age, our soul, and by doing so, let’s smile, the more you smile, the younger you look!

SLEEP

Dark circles, bags, or both? Don’t rush to a plastic surgeon yet, begin by changing your sleeping patterns. You may see a dramatic change from how you feel, to your complexion. Did you know lack of sleep dehydrates the skin? Causing breakouts, uneven color pigmentation, or/and dark patches in the eye area? Begin today! Promise yourself this now, you’ll do the very best in setting an earlier bedtime, by leaving your laptop on the desk, turn your phone off and don’t watch t.v, meditate, and drift your thoughts and mind toward a deep, sound sleep. Like everything, this too is a learned behavior, you may call it a learning process. Begin today, your goals towards wellness and a more beautiful you!

EXERCISE

Did you know another secret to vibrant looking skin is exercise? Yes, you heard right, exercise helps you feel better about yourself, but it also helps your skin release any toxins via sweat glands. Don’t forget epidermal elasticity, by exercising regularly your body releases natural hormones making your face, neck, and all over appearance look and feel firmer. Give it a try! Exercise your way to beauty!

The 10 Best Eye Products Ever

“The beauty of a woman must be seen from in her eyes,

because that is the doorway to her heart,

the place where love resides.”

~ Audrey Hepburn

Clothes, accessories, and material thing are not enough, what stands out about a woman is the true beauty of her eyes. The make-up industry is overly saturated with products, colors, and myths; as a consumer (on a budget), finding the right line can be difficult and at times frustrating.

Step 1:

Apply a lighter shade of eyeshadow  all over the eyelid using a large eyeshadow brush. Blending it to perfection is key. Use a  longwearing crease resistant formula as NARS single Eyeshadow, in a series of uniquely paired color combinations.  Worn together or alone, all duo eye-shadow can be applied sheer or built up for a more dramatic effect.   Why should you use N.A.R.S.? Simple, it applies smoothly, blends easily, crease resistant, awesome color, and mostly is long-lasting.

Step 3:

Apply a darker color into the outer crease of your eyelid. This should go all the way to the outermost portion of the crease. Ultra-pigmented, high-impact signature shades with tone-on-tone sparkling pearl that create beautiful dimension for the eye. Long-wearing, crease-resistant colors can be worn for both subtly shimmering and seriously smoky effects.

Step 4:

Blend, blend, blend gently  the crease color, make sure under the brow is still highlighted, make it look like a gradual process without any lines from shadow colors used.

Step 5:

Using a liquid eyeliner, begin painting a straight line,  slightly slanting upwards when getting closer to the middle of your eye and extend it past the corner of your eye. Once the outline is filled, start  filling  it in. Add a wing (upwards) to the upper lash line. Draw an even line along the bottom of the eye, always building up slowly, don’t forget to connect the upper and lower lash lines. Remove any excess with a clean Q-tip dipped in warm water, (reduces errors and unwanted smudges).

Blissfully Calm

1, 2, and 3 … center and calm yourself.

Breathe in, and breathe out, calm yourself and find that happy place.

How much more cliché can you get? According to psychological studies stress damages the skin as well as our health. How? Think about it, when we worry our minds are in a state of anxiety, causing individuals to panic about situations or problems, possibly resulting in making poor choices and mistakes, not to mention the domino effect to our internal health. A stressed person may forget to eat regularly, take vitamins, or  drink water (which is imperative to our organism); however, one may also indulge in food, alcohol, and/or drugs, all having negative effects to our mind and body.

Snooze time is also a factor, stress causes sleep deprivation causing dark circles under eyes, (dark circles are not always a sign of stress,  depends on health conditions, and ethnicity as well), taking away from the radiance of skin complexion, triggering breakouts, allergies, and many more skin problems. Lack of sleep also causes premature aging and sleep disorders. Avoid staying up late, we all need our Beauty Sleep, if stress is interfering with the rest you desperately need, seek ways to calm your mind, try meditation, swimming, yoga, or anything that relaxes your nerves, or makes you smile.

Calm yourself by centering your emotions. Don’t be another statistic related to stress! Life is beautiful, cherish every single moment!!!

Lacking Radiance?

The Truth of Fruit Acid/Enzyme Treatments

Fruit Acid/Enzyme treatments may be the answer to a fresher more vibrant complexion. An acid or enzyme compound can help purify follicles from debris by removing dead skin from the surface of the epidermis.

Beautiful, radiant complexion stems from healthy cells; clogged pores impede skin renewal, therefore, fruit acids/enzyme treatments may improve skin tone by reducing the appearance of hyper-pigmented areas, dark spots, skin care products penetration, and smoothing of fine lines and wrinkles.

  • When using products containing fruit or enzyme acids use caution, it may thin the surface of the skin and some individuals may experience excessive irritation, and/or peeling of treated area when waxing.
  • Sunscreen use is imperative, fruit or enzyme acids make the skin more sensitive and prone to sunburns, use a SPF-30 for protection.
  • A series of treatments may be beneficial depending on skin type, someone with sensitive skin may need less than a person who has nonsensitive skin, always consult with a professional before choosing.
  • Check with your dermatologist and skin care specialist before using any products containing alpha-hydroxy acids or enzymes.

Don’t waste another minute! Achieving a luminous complexion has never been easier! Book a treatment today!

Choices …

Racing for Youth

Is a youthful appearance worth time, money and effort? Many people ask themselves this question, first let’s thank the media, movie stars, and entertainment industry for the answer, which is a big fat “YES”. I would love to argue, and validate “our natural perfection”, unfortunately I am unable to do so. Considering I reside in Southern California, the land of the beauty, where stars are abundant and top plastic surgeons right beside them?

With many different options available, how does anyone know where, how much, or which treatment to pick? The choice is essentially yours, however a great dermatologist will guide you to a better and natural you, without gouging your bank account.

How to choose a doctor or surgeon?

As the quest for eternal youth begins, look around! From my professional opinion, anything cosmetic is aesthetically pleasing, natural, and subtle. Recommendations from another doctor or a close friend, are the best when selecting a doctor or surgeon; don’t settle with one, but gather a few numbers, make a few appointments, and find someone who you can relate to and feel comfortable with.

Don’t be shy! Ask if they have a patient portfolio you can look at! Before and after pictures are priceless in choosing the right doctor for you, flip through the pages, ask questions, i.e. success rates in procedure or complications due to surgery, and recovery time (may vary depending on age, health, or other conditions).

Is your doctor Board Certified? Ask him/her, knowing the field your doctor is certified in is imperative to the results you want; also, do your own research! You may find information regarding your doctor online Doctorfinder

Are you racing for youth? If so, please be safe, choose carefully, don’t forget to ask questions and be comfortable doing it!
