Anti-Aging Skincare

Nature has been nurturing our body, mind and soul ever since the start of life. Even though nature has the answer to all our beauty dilemmas, we always seem to be more willing to waste hundreds of dollars on synthetic  products without even bothering to read the ingredients list.

The fact remains that we all want to look young and beautiful. Technological advancements have brought a paradigm shift in the skin care technology. Thus, the entire domain of the anti-aging skin care products has been revolutionized by the cutting edge technology promising better, more natural and long-lasting results.

The interesting aspect of these breakthroughs in anti-aging skin care is that all these new discoveries have been borrowed from nature. Thus the nature remains the ultimate source of inspiration when it comes to skin care and beauty.

Here is nature’s goodness being served to your skin on a rich platter:

Lemons to the Rescue

Lemon juice has a strong bleaching action that fights against age spots and freckles that diminish your beauty.  All you need is to squeeze out some fresh lemon juice, apply it all over your face and let it dry for at least 15 minutes. Then, wash it off with cold water.
The combination of lemon juice and honey is the most effective remedy to soothe your skin and fight signs of aging.  You need one tbsp. of honey and the same quantity of lemon juice, mix them well and massage thoroughly onto the skin. Leave the mixture on for at least 20 minutes, and once it has dried, rinse it off with lukewarm water.

The Heavenly Coconuts

Coconuts are unbelievably rich in minerals and vitamins that can make our skin soft, moistened and beautifully radiant. You need to take a raw coconut and grate it until the milk is all squeezed out. Apply this coconut milk onto your face, and leave it on for at least 20 minutes. Once it dries, wash your face with lukewarm water. Radiate in the luxury of soft skin!

Papayas are rich in vitamin A and also act as powerful antioxidants. They can work wonders for your skin texture as well as skin tone.

The papaya mask is an ideal way of nurturing your skin with the goodness of nature. Take a nicely ripe papaya and cut it down into tiny little pieces.

10 Summer Work Wardrobe Must-Haves

youngfashion may 2016With the weather hot outside and the air conditioner blaring at the office, getting dressed in summer can be difficult. You should have your trusty cardigan or black blazer by your desk, but making sure you don’t sweat through your clothes and wear breathable fabrics will mean you stay comfortable. Here are 10 office must-haves you need this summer.

An Easy Shirtdress – A shirtdress mixes masculine and feminine lines and a striped version with a tie waist will highlight your waist.

A figure flattering shift dress – A black shift dress, will make you look professional, feminine all the while beating the heat.

A sleeveless oxford – This is a classic white shirt without the sleeves. One with slight detail will give your outfit a little more femininity.

A silky cami – Cami’s are great to wear under your blazers and waistcoats.

A light blazer – A nice light gray blazer is a smart alternative to the standard black.

Facial Masks for a Ravishing Skin

With the passage of time, aging takes its toll and skin is the first organ of the human body which registers the changing cycle of the years. From wrinkles to fine lines, laugh lines or crow’s feet, skin aging effects remain the worst beauty nightmare for any woman.

Mostly, people are ready to spend on products and surgeries that cost an arm and a leg just so that they could prolong their youthful days. However, we often shy away from easy natural remedies that can save us and our skins a great deal of trouble.

If we were to sell you a cosmetic surgical treatment plan or perhaps an anti-aging cream worth hundreds of dollars, we would have tried to sugar coat my words. However, the best thing about nature is that you can’t sell it. It is there for everyone to enjoy and benefit from.

Only some of us shy away from the nurturing care of nature. So, before you scroll down to read on, we want you to promise that you will embrace nature and organic products into your beauty regime.

Here are some truly remarkable facial packs that will help you fight signs of aging without suffering any side-effects:

 

Eggs are essential

And why shouldn’t they be? Eggs are rich in anti-aging agents such as proteins, zinc and omega3 fatty acid. You want to know something even more impressive about eggs? The yolk of an egg contains an extremely precious anti-aging component called biotin.

Biotin helps the body to produce fats, along with repairing all damaged cells. Naturally, it plays a big role in eliminating wrinkles and fine lines. Using an egg on your skin will leave behind a firmness and will even out your skin tone naturally.

All you need is 1 tbsp. of egg white, half tbsp. of yogurt and 1 tbsp. of lemon juice. Mix these nicely into a bowl, and when it forms a thick paste, apply it all over your face. Leave it on for around 15 minutes, and then, rinse it off with cold water.

Yogurt: Most underrated beauty secret

Yogurt is much underrated for all its services to the beauty regimes of women worldwide. Quite a few of us fail to acknowledge that is the richest source of vitamin A, one of the most powerful anti-aging agents.

Moreover, once you make yogurt a part of your daily diet, it provides you a reliable supply of nutrients and elements that eliminate wrinkles and fine lines.

You need just one tsp. of honey and 2 tsps. of yogurt. Now, take one capsule of Vitamin E and cut off the tips of the capsule. Pour the liquid inside the capsule straight into the mixture you prepared earlier. Lastly, add just a pinch of turmeric and mix it well.

Apply the paste all over your face, and leave it on for 15 minutes. As  the mask begins to dry, rinse it off with cold water.

Diet

A healthy diet is a pre-requisite for a vigorous, glowing skin. Thus, you need to maintain a subtle balance of diet and exercise to reap the optimum benefits of the organic skin care.

The Charming Factors of Art Deco Rings

Let the elegance of an art deco ring sway you into purchasing one for your beautiful bride-to-be.

The old world charm of art deco rings has been a popular choice among couples that are looking for something unique and elegant. This isn’t to say that your typical diamond ring isn’t suitable for your bride-to-be; it’s just that art deco rings provide a different voice within their bold streamlined-geometric look.

Elegance At Its Finest

Inspired by the architecture and artwork of the Native Americans, Greeks, and Egyptians, art deco rings have found a humble home in the world of engagement rings.

The suffrage movement of women is displayed within the artwork. One can visualize the independence that these women fought for through the boldness of the crafted style.

Their sleek, clean cut conveys nothing but pure elegance and class. These styles were totally in contrast to the neutral Edwardian designs and showcase a clean sense of sophistication, which is clearly reflected in art deco rings today. Now, don’t mistake bold for being overly dramatic in terms of details or intricacies. Realistically, these rings weren’t made with being “fancy” in mind, but for a genuine look.

Don’t Always Trust Yard And Estate Sales

Many of these rings can be found in estate jewellery sales, but it’s important that if you decide to take this route that you approach it with caution. With an abundance of knock-offs and fakes floating around, you may come across a ring that’s worth no more than a mass-produced product.

It’s best to approach a professional that has years of experience, such as Cynthia Findlay Antiques, a prestigious family business that offers custom jewellery in Toronto.

Not only will these established jewellers provide you with a sense of direction on where to find the perfect art deco ring, but they might even carry them for which you can purchase. So, what are you waiting for? Cynthia Findlay Antiques and other reputable establishments are waiting to help you today.

What to wear for Easter brunch

youngfashionEaster brunch is a fun event to catch up with family and friends. These events usually involve a mixed bag of people, from well know family, kids, to in-laws and friends. Easter functions are also scheduled during midday to early evening. Therefore, finding an outfit for Easter can be confusing. Here are a few tips to help you select an out that is appropriate, yet flattering.

Outfit – Since a lot of your family will be at this event, it is best to choose an outfit that is conservative but chic. With kids, uncles and aunts present, leave the low cut tops, the super short skirts and the fake lashes at home. Look at wearing a skater dress in a block color or a floral print. Choose a light summery shade like powder pink or pastel blue/ yellow. Your hemline should reach past your upper thigh.

Hair – Your look should be soft and effortless. Use a straightener to create soft curls or go super straight.

Make up – Use a good foundation and a little blusher. If you feel bare with this look, add a bit of eyeliner and some tinted gloss. Avoid shimmery eye shadows and face contouring.

Shoes – Think cute flats or dainty sandals. Remember that you may have to assist the host (since the host is usually family), so comfort is key. If you don’t feel dressed without a heel, go for a small 2 inch heel.

Nails – Brighter, shorter nails are in this Spring. Make your color pop; think hot pink, purple, coral, teal, yellow, orange.

Essential Denim tips

youngfashionInvesting in an expensive pair of jeans can be worthwhile, since you can pair it with almost anything or any occasion. With prices over $200, taking care of your jeans is important to ensure they stay in good condition. Some people say washing your jeans by hand is best, others say use the machine, while some others don’t wash their jeans at all and only opt for dry cleaning them. Here are some tips to prolong the life of your jeans.

Raw denim needs at least 6 months to to contour to the shape of your body. Therefore to maintain the best shape, avoid washing them for a few months. If you have a pre washed pair (these are jeans that look faded), you can wash them when they start to sag or get stained.

To get rid of the smell between washes, hang your jeans near the shower. The steam will help to freshen them up. If that’s not possible, you can freeze your jeans for 2 days in a ziplock bag.

To stop your jeans from losing their color, always wash them in cold water inside out. (Use a mild detergent)

If you have a dark pair of jeans, include a half cup of distilled white vinegar, at the final rise stage of your wash.

Lay/hang your jeans flat or upside down to dry. Always air dry your jeans or turn the heat at the lowest setting on your dryer. Try to remove your jeans before they are completely dry.

Dressing up a pixie hair do

A pixie haircut is a great feminine style, that is easy to maintain. Many celebrities like Halle Berry, Charlize Theron and Kate Mara have looked stunning in their pixie dos. But, If you’ve always had long hair and have now decided to go pixie short, you might have to rethink your style of dressing and accessorizing. Here are a few tips for rocking your new pixie.

Choose feminine styles – If your style is more tailored and minimalistic, you will need to buy a few pieces to create a feminine vibe. This means flowery prints, bows and ruffles, which are fun and feminine. You could also invest in a few skirts from high waisted, flared to mini’s. Dresses are also a great easy way to look stylish yet feminine. If you choose plain colors opt for pinks or peaches, light yellows and powder blues. A classic skater dress paired with heels and your pixie, can really make a statement.

Make up- With longer locks you probably could get away with a little eyeliner. But once you’ve gone pixie, you really need to make sure your makeup is on point. With a pixie, your face is very exposed and it’s the very first thing people will see. Invest in a good liquid foundation and cream blusher. You will also need to neaten your brows. Liquid Eyeliner and Mascara is a must. If you’re heading out, a simple cat’s eye will really make your eyes pop.

Accessories- Gone are the days when your earrings are hidden. You can now where little diamante studs or go for a long pair of dangly earrings.

Look Better Without Exercise

By femmebasics.com

Everyone knows they should be working out. Even those of us who do work out know that we should probably be doing it more. Regular exercise is part of the ideal, healthy lifestyle.

The same goes for eating right. We all know that this must be a priority. Eating right is, again, part of living a healthy, pain-free life.

Still, that doesn’t make this kind of thing any easier. If you know you should be working out and eating better, make that a goal. But don’t let that stop you from looking your best in the present.

Fortunately, one incredibly easy way to do this is with a simple waist trainer. Whenever you like, throw on your trainer and see how it immediately takes inches off your waist and really brings your entire body into a much more svelte line.

Countless men and women are using this type of accessory to look their best while they work on getting in better shape. While this sort of thing has been around for decades (centuries, if you consider corsets), in recent years, they’ve become incredibly comfortable, easy to put on and affordable.

So if you’d like to ensure your best self steps out of the door every time you leave the house, make a cincher a part of that morning routine.
