Friday, February 13th, 2015

The Only Tool You Need for Gorgeous Sexy HairWith the markets overwhelmed with hair products and tools that claim to really work, it can be intimidating to know where to begin in a shopping experience. Around every corner is a new product promising frizz minimization or volume induction, yet never one that seems to tackle all areas of styling needs. Wouldn’t it be nice to get that gorgeous and sexy hair with just one tool? Fortunately, there is a tool out there that makes it possible. With the Four Piece Clip Free Curling System by PYT, gorgeous and healthy hair is just a few curls away.

What It Is?

This inventive and efficient styling tool is optimized to provide a limitless amount of styling options. The results are professional and even salon approved. This flexible styling tool is multifaceted in its design, giving the user a variety of choices to explore. The 4P Clip Free Curling System comes with four interchangeable barrels that are easy to use and simple in design. The variety of barrel sizes include the 13−9 mm, 19 mm, 25−18 mm and 32 mm.

The cord is a handy nine feet long, while it’s also enabled to swivel at a convenient three hundred and sixty degrees. It’s equipped with dual voltage and comes with a heat resistant glove, as well as a one year limited warranty.

Why it’s Great?

Not only is it easy to use, this is a product unique to its market. The variety of styling options that come along with the curling system are only made possible by its interchangeable barrels. Traditional curling irons often induce breakage, creases, and uncomely lines within the hair, but this is prevented when using the PYT FP Clip Free Curling System. Its efficient use cuts down the time it takes to style hair by nearly half the time of its competitors. In ten seconds the curling system is heated and ready to use. It is capable of reaching four hundred degrees Fahrenheit, but the temperature is customizable depending on the user or stylist.

The Tourmaline barrel works as an excellent heat conductor while staying at a steady, consistent temperature. Because of this, curls can last for days without the damaging use of excessive product. Tourmaline also gives off a natural source of infrared heat and negative ions, which help to lock in moisture while creating smooth, shiny curls—frizz free!

The 4P Clip Free Curling System uses negative ions to heat the hair the from the inside out, which exposes the hair to less heat, but also styles the hair in the most efficient way possible. This keeps hair healthy and shiny while minimizing frizz and damage.

Hair is part of a women’s identity, but it shouldn’t take up all her time and money. Find your best hair yet with the 4P Clip Free Curling System and you’ll discover that you too can have red carpet worthy and Hollywood inspired hair. In mere minutes, you’ll have hair that mirrors the work of the professionals. This salon quality styling tool comes to you in the convenience of your own home and your own time, giving you fantastic finish to your lovely locks.

Countdown to Valentine’s Day Series – Perfect Hair

Countdown to Valentine's Day Series - Perfect HairEvery woman, whether she’s going on a romantic date or just having a girls’ night out with her friends, wants to look flawless on Valentine’s Day. By now, you’ve probably already picked out your ensemble and decided how you want to wear your hair on the special day. Whether you’re going with a feminine up-do or planning on wearing some voluminous, big sexy curls, the key to making your hair look its best on Valentine’s Day is giving it some TLC in the days leading up to the holiday. Here are some techniques that you can use to prepare your hair for your Valentine’s Day style.

Don’t Over-Shampoo

Healthy hair doesn’t come from daily shampooing. While a lot of us used to think that shampooing your hair until it felt “squeaky clean” was the key to gorgeous locks, the truth is that shampooing your hair too often strips it of natural oils that keep it looking shiny and healthy. Cut back on daily shampooing to get great hair. In the weeks leading up to an event, use a volumizing shampoo like Fekkai Full Blown Volume shampoo to add some body to your roots.

Condition and Treat

It’s a good idea to use a moisturizing deep conditioning treatment a day or so before an event. It will put some moisture back into your hair and diminish the appearance of dried or fried ends. If you want to go the extra inch, use a moisturizing serum or oil on damp hair when you get out of the shower, like the Oscar Blandi Olio di Jasmine Hair Serum. This will help to lock moisture into your hair, giving it luster and shine.

Don’t Stress About Style

If you can’t settle on the right style for Valentine’s Day, don’t stress. Browse the internet for pictures of celebs wearing similar ensembles to the one you have planned to get some inspiration on how you should wear your hair. If you really can’t settle, then remember that big bouncy curls are a perfectly romantic and classic look that always works on Valentine’s Day. All you’ll need is a curling iron with a large barrel and some light hold hairspray. Curl your hair in one-inch sections. When you’ve finished your whole head, rake your fingers through the curls to break them up and give them a soft look. Finish with a misting of the hair spray for a finished product that is gorgeous and romantic.

It can be hard to find the right look for Valentine’s Day. However, if you take the time to prep your hair to ensure that it’s healthy, moisturized and full of body, any look you choose will look beautiful.

Countdown to Valentine’s Day Series – Makeup

Countdown to Valentine's Day Series - MakeupValentine’s Day is just around the corner. Like many girls, you might find yourself daydreaming about your romantic evening with someone special! While we can’t help you pick out your date, we can steer you in the right direction to look divine.

Put your best face forward starting with a gentle moisturizer. This will soften your skin and help it ‘glow’ instead of looking caked with makeup. Use a sponge applicator to glide powder or liquid foundation across your cheeks, forehead, chin, and nose. Remember to blend toward your neck so you don’t look two-toned!

Now, it’s always fun to make your look ‘pop’ with a bold splash of lipstick. But lipstick also tends to create its own mess by leaving a trail on dishware. It can accidentally smear across your face, or onto your date’s shirt! Even if it behaves by staying on your lips, the color tends to fade and require frequent reapplication.

This year, ditch the lipstick anxiety and try a healing, minty lip balm layered with clear gloss. Instead of using bold color on your lips, try an attention-grabbing fuchsia nail polish. Paint your nails ahead of time to protect your outfit. Quick nail trick: Paint your nails with clear gloss first, allow to dry, then add color. This will prevent the color from staining your nails!

Your Valentine’s night plans probably involve a decent amount of eye contact. Hold you date’s attention with smoldering smoky-eyes. Allow yourself to be inspired by the holiday’s favorite treat: chocolate. Some eye shadows are infused with real cocoa-powder to help you achieve the look. Highlight the entire eyelid area with light tan, then use a thin brush to blend darker shades of chocolate brown into the creases and outer corners of your eyes. Top it off with some mascara, eyeliner, or both.

Use a large, soft brush to sweep sheer shimmer powder across your cheeks. This will be a great new alternative to blush. Besides, depending on how shy you feel during your date, you may be adding some natural blush of your own! Shimmer powder can also be applied to the collarbone area. The subtle sparkle will make you more alluring— dreamy, even— in dim lighting!

Remember to leave yourself a comfortable amount of time to get dolled up. You may need a few extra minutes to sing along to your favorite music, or practice your ‘come-hither’ look in the mirror. No matter what, have fun and remember to smile. We can already picture you looking gorgeous!

Countdown to Valentine’s Day Series – Facial Care

Countdown to Valentine's Day Series- Facial CareValentine’s Day is swiftly approaching. Whether you have big romantic plans or you’re just going out with your girlfriends, do yourself a favor and give your skin some extra loving. There’s guaranteed to be pictures, so why not look your best for you?

Exfoliate!

You’d be surprised at the difference in your complexion when you’re scrubbing away those dead, useless layers of skin. You don’t have to get really fancy and go to a spa; sometimes an acid toner is all you need to remove the dull layers. Regular exfoliation will reveal the younger, healthier skin cells for a brighter overall complexion. If you’re looking for an excuse for a spa day, a professional facial will give you a deeper exfoliation using a variety of masks, serums, and tools.

Hydrate!

You’re probably already being good about getting enough water every day, but are you putting enough moisture into your skin in other ways? Winter is harsh on your skin, especially your face, and can lead to redness, peeling, and a dull complexion. Introduce intense moisture in the form of oil. You might think oil means acne, but oil based serums that are specially formulated for skincare won’t lead to breakouts. Proper moisturizing keeps your skin firm, supple, and more resilient.

Nourish While You Sleep

You can take care of your skin while you slumber? You sure can! The first step is removing all of your makeup and the day’s dirt from your face. Start with a good makeup remover to get all traces of makeup from your face. Follow it up with a gentle, non-foaming cleanser to get rid of any dirt or other residue. Exfoliate with something like gycolic acid to remove the dead skin that’s built up throughout the day. If you need an extra beauty boost, try a sleep mask. Skin experts agree that your skin goes through a lot of regeneration as you sleep so your skin is quite receptive to products introduced during this period. You’ll wake up with softer and smoother skin just from sleeping!

Acne Prone Skin?

If your skin is prone to acne, you’re probably used to waking up the morning of a big event with a few blemishes. If your acne isn’t hormonal or diet related, you’re probably used to juggling different skin care routines. Try a new skin care routine that a lot of people swear by. Try to be dedicated to a morning routine of cleansing, exfoliation (with an acid toner), and a moisturizer. At night, double cleanse! Wash your face twice with a non-foaming cleanser, follow it with your toner, and then moisturize. You might see a huge difference in your breakouts!

Your face is the first thing people notice, so why not add a few skin care tweaks to give yourself the utmost confidence? Whether you’re staring at your beloved over candlelight or you’re sipping wine with your best friend this Valentine’s Day, you’re guaranteed to glow both inside and out.

Wintertime Skin Repair

Wintertime Skin Repair

Repair Your Skin When It’s Cold Out

The colder winter months make an excellent opportunity to repair and revitalize your skin every year. This is because excessive sun exposure during the wintertime is generally minimized. While the sun is undeniably beautiful and pleasant at times, exposure to it can often be extremely problematic to skin, especially as far as the aging process goes. Thankfully, the winter months give people the chance to repair and restore the skin, whether they have problems with stretchmarks, uneven tone, acne scars or anything else.

Skin Restoration

If you want to restore your skin in the winter, you might be interested in a product Bio-Body Bio-Restorative Cream from Neocutis. This cream aims to make the skin on the body look and appear firmer, more supple and more resilient. It also aims to give the body a brighter and healthier look. If your skin tends to look dull and lackluster, then you might want to look into a restorative cream such as this one. This type of product can also be highly effective for hydrating dry skin, as it contains soothing ceramides that replenish the body’s moisture barrier. While the winter months can be excellent for skin repair, the frigid temperatures can often introduce unsightly skin dryness. If you suffer from dehydrated skin in the wintertime, this type of cream can be helpful as it contains salicylic acid that exfoliates. The salicylic acid does away with dead skin cells that give the skin an uneven, flaky and rough appearance.

Gorgeous Skin Free of Dullness and Flakes

If you want to promote youthful looking skin on your body in the wintertime, the 5 Minute Weekly Glycolic Peel from StriVectinLABS is one option to consider. This glycolic peel works to energize the skin via exfoliation. If you want to breathe new life into tired and dry skin in the wintertime, this product might be able to help you out. Not only can glycolic peels be beneficial for keeping the skin smooth and devoid of pesky dry patches and spots, but they can also be beneficial for making the pores look smaller and for decreasing the appearance of unwelcome wrinkles and fine lines.

Goodbye to Signs of Aging on the Skin

Products with retinol like Neocutis’ Nouvelle + Retinol Correction Cream can also be useful for keeping the skin looking youthful and wrinkle-free all year long, as it decreases fine lines and keeps the complexion looking soft and even. Many people appreciate products like this one because they don’t tend to cause irritation.

Body Products to Help Firm and Tone

       
Tuesday, January 20th, 2015

Body Products to Help Firm and ToneLet’s face it. Most of us aren’t as slim, fit, and toned as we would like to be. Even is you’re hitting the gym 7 days a week, it can still be a little unnerving when you start to go swimsuit shopping. Thankfully, there are some great beauty products out there that can help you to look and feel your best no matter what your current size. Here are some products you should try out:

1. Fatgirlscrub

Many of us have some lumps and bumps in places we really wish we didn’t. This scrub is designed to reduce the appearance of these lumps. Fatgirlscrub is designed to improve circulation, remove dead skin, and keep fluid from accumulating in your body. You’ll definitely feel more confident the next time you try on your skinny jeans.

2. Fatgirlslim

This is a specially formulated lotion that will wake up your skin and help with new skin cell growth for maximum firmness. It will also help reduce the appearance of cellulite, and who wouldn’t enjoy that? This lotion is also very hydrating and silky, which makes it feel like pampering, not toning.

3. Fatgirlsleep

Another wonderfully formulated lotion just for the nighttime. Relaxing lavender will help you have a restful night’s sleep while the active ingredients in this cream work to tighten and tone your skin. Sleep is essential to your health as well as your looks. They don’t call it beauty sleep for nothing. Get the most out of these eight hours by resting and rejuvenating with Fatgirlsleep.

4. MURAD Firm and Tone Serum

Those of us who have gained a little weight, had a baby, or even grew a little to quickly at one point can testify to having some stretch marks. Stretch marks can be pretty embarrassing, especially if you want to wear a bikini, some short shorts, or simply feel good about yourself. Firm and tone serum will reduce the appearance of stretch marks and will also help fight that pesky cellulite some of us can’t seem to shake. With regular use those unsightly lines and bumps could virtually disappear.

5. DOCTOR BABOR Body Cellular Ultimate Forming Body Cream

If you’re really looking for almost surgical or professional results without the cost or the pain, then this cream is a good alternative. The cream both firms and smooths away stretch marks and scars. It is especially recommended for skin going through a postoperative period. It is made for daily use and is great for rejuvenating tired and worn out skin.

Caviar- An Anti-Aging Jewel of the Sea

       
Friday, January 16th, 2015

Caviar- An Anti-Aging Jewel of the SeaCaviar is famous as a gourmet food that has been long treasured by wealthy people around the world. Not everyone knows, however, that this food also has some significant health and anti-aging benefits. Caviar is made from fish eggs, also known as sturgeon roe, that are salt-cured. As a food, it has an extremely salty and fishy flavor that some people like better than others. What is it about caviar that could hold the secrets to a more youthful appearance?

Nutritional Benefits of Caviar

When consumed as a food, caviar has quite a few vitamins and other nutrients. One of the best things about this food is that it’s a good source of healthy omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, which support heart health. Caviar also supply Vitamins A, C and E, which are all antioxidants and beneficial for maintaining a healthy immune system. It’s also rich in zinc, which is another immune system booster. On the other hand, caviar is a fairly high calorie food, so it’s not the best choice for people on a diet. Fortunately, there are additional benefits to caviar, that don’t require you to eat it regularly.

Caviar as a Skin Care Agent

Caviar has recently become known as a valuable ingredient in skin care products. It is now used in many high end spas. Hollywood celebrities such as Angelina Jolie, Mick Jagger and Gwyneth Paltrow have publicly touted its benefits as a way to detoxify and revitalize the skin. Caviar can be made into an extremely beneficial facial. The same healthy fatty acids that make caviar healthy to eat also provide benefits to the skin. How does this help the average person, though, who doesn’t have access to Beverly Hills spas? Fortunately, there are products on the market that allow anyone to enjoy the anti-aging qualities of caviar and other anti-aging ingredients.

Finding Effective Anti-Aging Products

If you are seeking anti-aging products containing caviar, you may have to do a little research, as this is something that is only starting to become popular. There are a few products on the market, such as BABOR Sea Creation, which contains caviar as well as other beneficial marine ingredients such as algae and seaweed. Algae has been shown to support cell regeneration and the production of elastin, which helps reduce wrinkles and other signs of aging. Seaweed has natural anti-inflammatory properties that make it a natural exfoliant. Seaweed is also a good acne remedy.

When choosing anti-aging products, you shouldn’t simply look for one ingredient, but consider the reputation of the brand and product. Maintaining a youthful appearance involves many factors, including your diet and lifestyle. The right anti-aging products, however, can be very helpful at keeping your skin radiant and young looking.

Top 5 Beauty Myths Debunked!

       
Tuesday, January 13th, 2015

Top 5 Beauty Myths Debunked!We all know there out there: those beauty myths we all wish were true. In reality, most beauty myths are a scam to get us to spend more money on products and regimens we don’t need. The following are the top five beauty myths – DEBUNKED! Let’s not get fooled again.

Myth 1: Avoid Oils If You Have Oily Skin

We’ve all heard them say it: “You have oily skin? Putting more oil-based products on your body will only make it oilier!” MYTH. On the contrary, using oils on skin that is naturally oily can actually help your skin to slow down its oil production, thus evening out your skin tone in the long run. Rather than using products intended for oily skin, promising to reduce the amount of oil production your body naturally produces, use products that are meant for “dry skin.” The oils in them will help your body to regulate itself.

Myth 2: Always Use the Same Line of Cosmetics

Um, no? Always use the cosmetics that work for you. If one brand works as your foundation but another works better for your cleanser, you do you, girl! All reputable cosmetic lines have professional scientists working to develop their products. Ignore what others tell you and use what you like!

Myth 3: Cutting Your Hair Makes It Grow Longer

Sorry, short haired babes, but it’s just not true. Cutting your hair does not actually make it grow faster. It makes you notice the growth faster. The key to making your hair grow longer faster is all about maintenance. The more you process your hair, the slower it will repair itself and grow. If you take care of your hair (and take those vitamins!), it will grow over time. Time.

Myth 4: Shaving Makes the Hair Come Back Thicker

Shaving, like cutting your hair, makes you notice the growth. It will not make your hair come back thicker, nor will it make it come back darker. It does not decrease the size of the follicle, as waxing does, nor does it increase growth. It just temporarily removes the hair on the surface. Temporarily. Such as sad word.

Myth 5: You Can Make Cellulite Disappear

We wish, right? Although there are creams that will diminish their appearance for a short period of time, once cellulite is visible, it’s visible. As of right now, there is no way to completely eliminate cellulite. So, love yourselves, ladies! There’s nothing wrong with it. It’s genetic. On the plus side? Tanning – albeit unsafe for the skin – does camouflage cellulite very well.
