Four Top Tips That Will Improve Your Complexion

We all dream of having an effortlessly clear complexion. Unfortunately, very few of us are blessed with naturally flawless skin; most of us have to work hard for it. Our skin is exposed to many environmental factors such as the sun, wind and pollution on a daily basis that all have an effect on the condition of our complexion. It is up to us to protect our face from these elements by following a robust beauty regime and leading a healthy lifestyle. If you want to do what you can to get a clear complexion, here is your guide to doing so.

1. Deal with stress effectively

It is not a coincidence that when you have an important event on the horizon, whether it’s your wedding or a job interview, you often experience a breakout of blemishes. If your stress levels are consistently high, this can wreak havoc with your complexion. Stress can also lead to a lack of sleep which, as we all know, leads to visible problems with our skin such as bags under our eyes. It is important to incorporate stress management techniques into your lifestyle. For example yoga and controlled breathing may help you deal with stress effectively and leave your skin looking and feeling radiant.

2. Be mindful of your digestion

Impurities in the skin are often the result of digestive problems. Poor digestion can arise from a number of dietary issues. Perhaps you are eating a high number of dairy products, drinking too much alcohol or eating food that you may be sensitive to, like gluten. If you suffer from poor digestion, and complexion problems as a result, your doctor may able to help you work out how you can amend your diet to deal with these issues effectively.

3. Use good quality products

Many skin care products available include problem ingredients that have an adverse effect on our complexions. Some ingredients block the pores that contribute to blemishes or they strip the natural oils from the skin leaving it dry and damaged. It is important to educate yourself about your skin type and any skin conditions you suffer from so you can use the right products for you. You should also become knowledgeable on the ingredients in skin care items that you should avoid. Good quality products may cost you more money, but they will improve your complexion.

4. Deal with permanent marks

Unfortunately, there are only so many preventative measures we can take. We all suffer from permanent skin marks due to ageing or skin conditions. However, many of these blemishes can be dealt effectively. For example, you could introduce some skin conditioning products like a whitening cream mask into your regime that can treat age and sun spots. Visible blood vessels can be dealt with using laser and other light therapies. It is worth contacting a dermatologist if you permanent marks that are causing you stress.

A clear complexion is achievable by all with a little effort, a few lifestyle changes and some appropriate products or treatments.

So, you’re planning on heading off for a girl’s night out, and of course you want to look your best. But, for some reason you never end up looking quite as good as you want to… Don’t worry, that’s where we come in.

To help you look your best, we have come up with some handy beauty tips that are perfect for a girls’ night out. To find out more, have a read of this.

1. Choose the perfect outfit

Before picking out an outfit think about where you are going and what type of style would work best. For example, for a night out on the town a little black dress would be perfect, but for dinner and drinks a pair of skinny jeans and a nice top would be the better option.

Choose an outfit that you feel comfortable and confident in, such as your favourite dress. Don’t be tempted to wear something that you don’t feel happy in, as you may spend the evening feeling self-conscious, instead of enjoying yourself.

2. Pick some jewelry

Once you have your perfect outfit picked out, the next step is to use your jewelry to add some extra sparkle to your look.

Before you choose your jewelry, think about your outfit. If you have opted for a plain dress or top, then bold and bright is the way to go. However, if you have opted for more colorful design, subtle jewelry is probably the best option.

A necklace, a pair of earrings or clip on earrings and a bracelet are all essential, no matter what outfit you are wearing. However, the outfit you have chosen will delegate what style of jewelry you should wear.

3. Apply your makeup

Before doing anything else, start by applying a moisturiser to your face. Make sure to cover your entire face, including your mouth and around your eyes. As you apply your moisturiser, use your fingers to gently massaged your skin – this will stimulate your blood flow and give you a nice glow.

Before you start applying your makeup, give your moisturiser a good five minutes to properly sink into your skin.

To ensure that you makeup stays on all night, start off by applying a primer. Not only will primer make your makeup stay on for longer, it will also reduce skin shine and give your face a matte look.

Once you have finished applying your primer, then follow this up with concealer if needed, and foundation. To even out your skin tone, opt for a liquid foundation and blend it into your skin thoroughly.

To set your makeup and keep it in place all night, gently apply some pressed powder to your face. Make sure to take special care of the area under your eyes.

Apply a subtle shade of eyeshadow from the lash line to the crease of your eye, and then use a darker tone of eyeshadow in the crease and blend upwards. To add a touch of glamour to your eyes, carefully apply a black or brown eyeliner to your waterline. Follow with two coats of mascara to make your eyelashes look long and bold.

To make your eyes look bigger, use an eyebrow pencil to enhance the look of your brows, and use tweezers to get rid of any stray hairs.

4. Do your hair

Don’t be tempted to leave your hair until the last minute, as that’s when you end up in a mess.

Give yourself at least 40 minutes to play around with your hair and get the look right. Especially if you are trying a style that you haven’t done before.

4 Secrets To Younger Looking Hands

People say that if you want to know a person’s true age, look at their hands. Washed and dried on a regular basis and exposed to the sun and snow, they get their fair share of use during our lives. As we get older, the skin on our hands becomes thinner, making them look fragile. As time goes on, they also become wrinkled and speckled with age spots. Most of us will spend substantial time and money on night creams, day creams and serums to make our faces look youthful. However, we don’t give a second thought to the biggest giveaway of our age. With a little effort, it is possible to delay these visible signs of ageing. Here are our secrets to younger looking hands.

1. Protect your hands from the sun

The biggest contributor to ageing skin on our hands is the sun. Regular exposure to the sun causes the skin to wrinkle and damages it in many ways. Most of us are in the habit of protecting our faces each day by applying sunscreen but it really important to include your hands in this routine. Look for a quality SPF hand moisturizer and apply to your hands daily. Yes, it’s another stage to add to your already lengthy beauty regime, but trust us it will make a difference to the look and feel of your hands.

2. Exfoliate

Your hands should regularly be exfoliated; once a week is sufficient. The skin on your hands is delicate, so use a gentle exfoliating product. Alternatively, use a completely natural method by mixing equal parts of sugar and olive oil and massage this gently into your hands. Leave the mixture on your hands for as long as possible for maximum benefit. Rinse and pat dry. This will leave your hands feeling soft and looking beautiful.

3. Moisture

Although you are now applying an SPF moisturizer to your hands on a daily basis, this may not be enough. Every time we wash and dry our hands, we strip them of moisture. So, it is a good idea to get into the habit of applying moisturizer after you clean your hands. Additionally, during the colder months, your hands will require extra moisture to cope with the harsh conditions. Whenever your hands feel tight and dry, don’t wait; apply hand moisturizer straight away. For this purpose, it’s a good idea to always carry a handy-sized hand cream in your bag.

4. Maintain a healthy lifestyle

By eating the right foods, regularly exercising and quitting smoking you will improve the skin on your hands as well as all over your body. Check out websites like antiagingworld.net that provide information on how to lead an anti-ageing lifestyle. Some of the best foods for nourishing your skin include oily fish, sweet potatoes, tomatoes and leafy greens. Have a look here for more information on foods that will benefit your skin.

The conclusion is that you must be kind to your hands to keep them looking young. It may require a little effort, but incorporating these secrets into your everyday routine will give you healthy, younger-looking hands.

Dental hygiene

It all starts here. The best smile requires pearly white teeth and plump red lips. Both your teeth and gums must be well looked after. Brush twice a day and floss regularly. Cut down on the coffees, teas and red wines that stain your precious teeth. If you do have severe teeth problems there are options out there. You could make use of thenewtooth dental implants in Kent & East Sussex.

Make-up

The right make-up can really bring out your smile. Choosing the right colours and tones to complement your teeth can make all the difference. Reds and berry colours are the best when it comes to making teeth look whiter. The same goes for deep browns. However, experts suggest avoiding magenta and brighter colours. They have the effect of making teeth look dark and brown.

Make it natural

This is the hardest bit to get right. The perfect, photogenic smile looks natural and happy. Almost as if you have been caught in the happiest moment of your life. There are a few tricks, but nothing beats recalling a fond memory or funny joke. Let your mind wander to that moment and the smile will naturally appear on your face. Some swear by smiling as you breath out. On the outward breath, your muscles are more relaxed.

Practice

Just get in front of your mirror and practice! Try a few techniques for a natural smile, and see which you prefer. Does the funny memory work, or do you just crease up too much? How about breathing? Try moving your tongue to different places. Don’t feel silly, just take your time to find the right resting place.

Don’t forget the eyes…

They say you can always spot a fake smile in the eyes. That’s what gives you a true radiance. So don’t forget to look out for them when practicing. What is it that makes them light up? What gives them that glint and shows your true happiness? This will likely come from recalling your fond memory. Always try to keep that in mind.

So there you go. There’s no big secret or magic trick that the celebs use. Practice, practice, practice and find the best technique for you. Everyone has the perfect, photogenic smile in them. Now it’s time to find yours.

 

Beauty Tips For The Man In Your Life

Unlike us ladies, men spend a very small amount of time grooming themselves. A typical man’s daily beauty regime involves a shower, a splash of aftershave, maybe some moisturizer and if they’ve got time, a quick comb of the hair. Most men are simply not interested in spending time each day pampering themselves. And because they are not interested, most men are unaware of the many benefits that can come from spending a little time on their skin and hair. When the nose hair becomes unsightly, and the fingernails are dirty it might be time to pass on some of these quick and easy beauty tips to your husband, boyfriend, brother or Dad.

Moisturize

I can’t imagine living a life without moisturizer; for practical rather than vanity reasons. During the winter especially, our skin gets dry, cracked and irritable, and moisturizer is the most helpful way to deal with this. Many men don’t bother moisturizing even during the winter months. This makes their skin look unhealthy, and feel very tight. Moisturizing each day will lead to healthier, softer skin. Additionally, wearing a daily moisturizer with SPF will protect their skin against damage from the sun and keep them looking younger for longer.

Evening face wash

Washing your face at the end of the day is crucial for achieving clean and healthy skin. But many men don’t bother. Each day cosmetic and environmental oil and dirt settles in the pores. If left alone, bacteria will accumulate on the surface of the skin and can lead to a breakout of spots. There are many face washes designed for men that use natural products. An exfoliating product is a good choice as this will also deal with dead skin, leaving the skin looking and feeling soft.

Shaving

The man in your life should be using good quality shaving tools and products to avoid skin damage and irritation. Suggest a shaving foam and aftershave balm that uses gentle and natural ingredients rather than cheap and potentially harmful products. A soft bristled shaving brush and a quality razor will also help to achieve a smooth finish. In terms of body hair tips and ideas, if the chest hair needs to be tamed, a good pair of clippers used in the direction of the grain on dry hair will help. Applying a body lotion post trim will hydrate your skin and ease any redness. For unruly back hair, waxing is the best option. No pain, no gain as they say.

Nails

Dirty and ragged finger or toe nails are never a good look. When neglected, bacteria and fungi breed under the toe and fingernails which can sometimes cause stomach bugs when they come into contact with the mouth. Yuck! Perhaps if they were reminded of this fact, the man in your life would be more willing to regularly clean, clip and file his nails. If he does a lot of weight lifting he may have course, calloused hands. These can be softened by soaking in warm water and gently rubbing with a pumice stone.

I hope these tips encourage some guy grooming!

How I Achieve Flawless Looking Skin, Every Day

Just lately, I’ve had many compliments on the way my skin looks. I’ve had problems with my skin in the past, so I’m absolutely thrilled to have found a skincare routine that works for me.

Of course makeup has had a hand in helping me to look flawless, but I’m only human! Here are my tips for achieving flawless looking skin every day:

I Cleanse, Tone, and Moisturise Twice a Day

In the morning I cleanse with a good facial wash, before toning and applying my moisturiser. If I’m not doing anything, I’ll leave it at that. However, most of the time I’ll apply my makeup over the moisturiser. My moisturiser contains an SPF, which helps to protect my skin from sun damage whether it’s sunny or raining outside. Before bed I do the same routine, sometimes using a different cleanser. I keep this routine consistent, and try to do it no matter how tired (and sometimes drunk) I am.

I Only Ever Use Products Suited to My Skin Type

The products I use aren’t those that work for a celebrity, or somebody I know. They are products that work for me. Everybody is different, so we need to find individual products suited to our skin types. Many people make the mistake of thinking that because something worked with their best friend, it’ll work with them. This isn’t the case! You need to work out your skin type, and then find products to suit it. If you have combination skin, you can use different products to reflect that. Using products that aren’t suited to your skin type will make your skin worse, and do more bad than good.

I Exfoliate Twice Per Week

I love exfoliating. It helps to get rid of dead skin cells, gives me a healthy glow, and leaves my skin feeling soft and supple. I do this twice a week, as that’s what the product I’m using recommends. In some cases, you may only need to use yours once per week. If it’s a wash with scrub incorporated, you may be required to use it every day. Go by the manufacturers instructions and test what works for you.

I Use a Facemask Once Per Week

Face masks are a real treat, and I try to be consistent in using one once per week. I try to do this at the same time and on the same day each week so I don’t forget. If I’m in a hurry, I’ll use one of those face masks made from cloth, that you simply unfold and lay over the face. These make the least mess, are easy to dispose of, and still leave my skin feeling great afterwards! If I’m feeling adventurous, I’ll use a clay mask or a peel off. However, I’m usually removing bits of mask days later.

I Apply a Pore Strip When Needed

Pore strips are the answer to blackheads, ladies. Those annoying little grease blobs stuck underneath the skin, making pores look oily and open. You can try to pop these, but you’ll never get rid of as many as a pore strip can. All you do is apply to a damp nose, for instance, leave to dry and then peel off. Looking at the strip afterwards can be very satisfying when you see just how many you’ve got rid of!

I Use Clever Makeup Techniques

As I said before, makeup does play a role in my seemingly flawless skin. I still have the odd imperfection, after all, and there’s not much else I can do. This means I turn to makeup! Here are some of the techniques I use on a daily basis:

  • I always use a primer after my moisturiser if I’m going to wear makeup. This stops the makeup from affecting my skin too much, helps to cover up imperfections, and makes the makeup last longer!
  • I apply a colour correcting concealer under my eyes, which helps to disguise dark circles when I layer over my foundation.
  • I apply my foundation with a good sponge or brush, making sure it’s expertly blended right down to my neck. No tide lines for me!
  • I apply a regular concealer under my eyes to wake them up.
  • I sometimes use highlighter and bronzer to contour my face, especially if I’m going out. The way you do this will depend on your face shape!
  • If my skin is a little greasy one day, I’ll dab over a powder to soak it up.
  • I apply instant tan occasionally, so I have more of a healthy glow on days when I don’t look it.

I Take My Makeup Off Properly at the End of the Day

You know I cleanse, tone, and moisturise twice a day. However, none of that matters if you aren’t taking your makeup off properly first and foremost. Cleanse twice at once if that’s what you have to do to remove every last scrap of makeup. Going to bed with makeup on your skin will mean you wake up with more imperfections. You could also end up layering new makeup over old makeup – gross!

I Nip Problems in the Bud Before They Get Worse

Occasionally, I’ll experience things like dark spots on my face. I make sure I nip these problems in the bud before they get worse, by doing my research on sites like http://www.healthyskinsolutions.com. I never ignore a problem, and try to eradicate it as quickly as possible!

I Monitor My Skin for Changes Regularly

Skin changes from season to season, so I monitor mine regularly for any changes. If I do notice changes, I change the products I use accordingly. My skin will usually get dryer in winter, for instance, so I’ll start using a richer moisturiser. However, using the same moisturiser in summer will break me out in spots. Sometimes, my skin will change for no reason at all. You need to be vigilant if you want to get flawless skin!

I hope you find my tips useful on your quest for flawless skin. Bye for now!

 

Step-by-Step Guide To Achieving Soft Skin In Winter

Let’s face it, the cold weather has it out for our skin. It makes us look and feel dry, tight, flaky and chapped. And when our skin is not at its best we feel uncomfortable and self-conscious. Well, we think it is high time that we fight back against the cold weather. If you want to join our army of glowing skinned ladies this winter, here is our step-by-step guide to achieving soft skin now.

Step 1: Warm, short shower

It is tempting during winter to turn the temperature up high and to stay in the shower for a long time in order to warm up. However, this is a bad skin habit to get into. The longer and hotter the shower is the more moisture will be stripped from your skin. And the cold weather exacerbate this by taking out even more moisture from your skin. Stick to a shower of no longer than ten minutes and make sure the temperature is just warm, not hot.

Step 2: Exfoliate

In the winter, it is important not to exfoliate too roughly. Your skin will already be delicate from being in the cold, so don’t add to the problem by scrubbing too hard. However, it is important to keep it up as part of your beauty regime, even in winter, to ensure glowing skin. Gently exfoliate in a circular motion using a light exfoliating sponge. Choose products that describe themselves as gentle exfoliants. If you have particularly sensitive skin, you may wish to try a natural exfoliant like honey and sugar or baking soda.

Step 3: Hair removal

You should always shave your legs after you have exfoliated. Exfoliating with remove dead skin cells from the surface of your skin making it softer and easier to shave. However, even by exfoliating first, shaving can still lead to dry and irritated legs. If this is the case for you, something like a laser hair removal device might be a better option. You may wish to read a review of this hair removal product while you are researching. But if you are comfortable shaving in the shower a good tip to avoid razor rash is to add baby oil to your skin before applying shaving cream. The oil creates a coating on your skin to protect it from the sharp razor.

Step 4: Apply moisture

When you are out of the shower, pat your skin dry rather than rub, as this can irritate the surface of your skin. Also, apply moisturiser to your body when it is still slightly damp will help seal in the moisture. Opt for products that are oil based as these will lock in the moisture for longer and will protect your skin against the cold weather.

Step 5: Stay hydrated

It is important to drink plenty of water in winter to ensure that your skin is nourished and hydrated. You should be drinking at least 2 litres of water per day. If you want to kill two birds with one stone, drink herbal teas like peppermint or fennel, to keep you hydrated and warm at the same time.

And that’s it. Stick to this beauty regime during winter, and you will defeat the cold weather with your soft skin.

At Your Best: 3 Top Tips For Instant Radiance

We all want to look instantly younger and more radiant. There’s a huge cosmetics industry dining out on that fact. The reality is the way our skin looks, how shiny our hair is and how good we feel are all affected by a variety of external factors, many of them within our control. So save yourself some money and get instantly more radiant with these three top tips for beauty.

  • Drink Some Water

Drinking the required amount of water (2 litres) a day is a fantastic way to perk up your skin. And perkier skin makes you look radiant and feel great. Water is essential to our bodies; it aids circulation, increases digestion, absorption and even excretion. Your skin is the very last organ in your body to see the benefits of the water you drink, so if you go without, your skin suffers. It becomes dry, tight and flaky. When skin is in this condition, it is more fragile and wrinkles quickly. Not a radiant look. Applying a moisturizer straight out of the shower and making sure you drink eight glasses of water a day are all great steps towards a more radiant you.

If you need a quick fix of radiance, cold water is also your friend. Splashed on your face, the temperature causes the blood vessels to constrict and makes your skin look smoother. It just doesn’t have a lasting effect unfortunately!

  • Look After Your Eyes

The eyes are the window to the soul. They are also the first thing that suffers if we skip sleep or stop looking after ourselves. Using an eye cream at night is a great way to keep the skin conditioned and reduce wrinkling. There is also a variety of creams on the market that, used daily, can address the dark circles under your eyes that result from late nights and stress. Check out the hydrolyze review for a good example.

It is also worth mentioning the importance of taking your time with your morning routine. Using an eye cream in the morning as well can open up your eyes and help to wake you up properly ready for the day. Gel-based creams are the best for reducing morning puffiness. Choose a cream which contains peptides and caffeine and place it in the fridge overnight to get the full advantage.

No time to change your routine? Get an instant effect by curling your lashes. This opens up the eye and makes you look bright eyed and bushy-tailed – even if you aren’t properly awake yet.

  • Feed Your Body

The reality is we are what we eat. The skin is one of the organs responsible for eliminating toxins in the body. If you load your body full of salt, fat and chemicals, the other eliminating organs become overloaded, and your skin has to work twice as hard. The outward signs of this differ from person to person. Some people suffer itchy red rashes whilst others get breakouts. Chances are you probably know which category you are in, and what foods cause it, by now. So stop eating them! A glass of lemon juice in the morning can help to flush out your body and kick-start your liver. Detox by drinking lots of water, eating fresh and organic produce and cutting out high sugar and salt foods. It’s amazing how quickly you will see a difference in the quality of your skin when it doesn’t have to battle toxins every day.

How To Hide Your Stretch Marks

If you have recently been pregnant or managed to lose a lot of weight, the toll on your body may still be showing. Injury, illness, pregnancy and excess weight affects our skin in many ways. In fact, our skin may still be showing signs of changes within us on the outside.

 Injuries can cause the joint to swell with fluid. This stretches the skin and adds to the pain as we are healing. Illness too can leave us bloated or dehydrated. The skin gives us away every time and is a good way for a medical professional to determine if something is wrong with us. When we are pregnant, the skin has to stretch considerably over a short period, and can become damaged. Equally, when we lose weight quickly such as when we diet or give birth, the skin does not recover quickly, if at all.

 Damage to the surface of the skin from acne, insect bites, cuts, burns and grazes also take their toll on the quality and appearance of our skin. Our skin is an amazing organ, protecting us in many ways every day, but all that hard work can leave its marks. Nobody wants to see anything but flawless skin, so when our skin is marked, we feel obliged to hide it.

 There are ways you can look after your skin to prevent permanent damage and marks. Keep hydrated inside, and moisturise your skin on the outside. Eat well, so your skin cells are fully nourished from your diet. The younger your skin is, the easier it is for it to heal. Elasticity is key for some marks like stretch marks. Treatments like TriLastin-SR stretch mark cream can help improve the appearance of this kind of marking.

 If you are thinking of having a baby, you may want to get a head start and protect your skin. Start a rigorous buffing and moisturising routine around your belly and hips. You will get bigger, but you can help your skin stay as elastic as possible by keeping it hydrated and rejuvenating the skin with gentle buffing. Perhaps you are considering a drastic diet or slimming surgery. You may also want to start a similar routine to keep the skin looking refreshed as what is underneath starts to shrink away.

 Substantial excess skin may need to be surgically removed, but this is rare. Instead, look after your skin, and keep in mind, it may look a little deflated for a while. Some new moms who have stretch marks after pregnancy feel proud that they have earned their ‘stripes’ through their pregnancy. This is a positive approach to natural processes that may permanently leave a mark on your body. There is no need to feel ashamed.

 If you are looking for a solution to sagging skin or skin that is marked, you may want to try surgery. Alternatively, you may want to think about dressing to make the most of what you do like about your body. We all have bits we dislike, but none of us is getting any younger!

Fabulous Hair Can Be Yours: 10 Tips that Really Work

Something many women lust after is thick, luxurious hair. Unfortunately, we aren’t all born with that kind of hair. It isn’t always easy to come by either! Getting extensions is an option, but they can be expensive and it’s difficult to find a good extensionist. These tips should help you to get fabulous hair without spending too much money.

  • Don’t Use Too Much Heat

Using heat on your hair can really take the shine and moisture out of it. Leave your hair to dry naturally when you can, and try not to use heated appliances on it everyday. When you must use heat, make sure you use a good spray to protect it.

  • Avoid Covering Hair in Product

Again, using too much product can be bad for your hair too. Take it easy on the mousse, hairspray and other products.

  • Don’t Tie Hair Up Too Tight

When we can’t be bothered to style our hair, tying it up is a natural solution. However, you shouldn’t tie your hair too tight. This can cause your hair to become damaged and fall out, especially if you’re always putting it in the same place. Try tying it loosely and varying the height of the pony.

  • Use Rollers

Rollers are a quick and easy way to get a great hair style. Just pop them in after drying, leave them while you do your makeup, then take them out for a lovely bouncy, wave.

  • Visit Your Hairdresser Ever 6 Weeks

People try to save money by not visiting a hairdresser, but you should visit one every 6 weeks to keep your hair in optimum condition. Get a cut and professional colour and you should notice a big difference.

  • Take Supplements

Supplements such as Hairjelly can help if you’re struggling to make your hair respond to everything you’re trying. You can also try supplements such as multivitamins.

  • Eat a Healthy, Balanced Diet

Eating the right food will have an effect on your hair. Eat plenty of vegetables, fruit, and lean meat. Food like fish and avocados are supposed to be good for the hair.

  • Invest in Great Products

If you use cheap products on your hair, you’ll more than likely get a cheap finish. Investing in great, salon quality products is the key if you want your hair to look amazing. You’ll be surprised at what a difference they can make!

  • Don’t Wash Your Hair So Often

Your hair doesn’t need to be washed every day, or even every other day. In fact if you do this, you can make it more greasy as it becomes accustomed to frequent washing. Try to only wash your hair when it needs it. Some women don’t wash their hair at all. This sounds gross, but they use dry shampoo and their hair is in amazing condition.

  • De-stress

Stressing out can cause hair to fall out. Take time to relax!

Try these tips and you won’t regret it. Leave a comment if you think they’ve worked for you!
