1. Skincare Routines
Our skincare routines and techniques focus on efficiency and skin rejuvenation, freeing your skin of blemishes, acne, wrinkles, excess oil, and more.
Follow these articles to learn the correct order from cleansers and toners to moisturizers and sunscreen and the best beauty products for your skin type.
Your skin faces plenty of challenges every day, from exposure to the sun, contamination, sweat, and depending on your climate, extremes of warmth and cold. These influences impact your skin negatively, and so you need to fight back with a healthy daily skincare routine, applied consistently from an early age.
An anti-aging beauty routine can start at any age, beginning with preventing sun damage right from birth. There's no reason to wait until you're in your 30s or 40s to start using anti-aging products.
After all, if you delay addressing things like fine lines, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, and cellulite until after they're already present, you're going to miss out on the incredibly useful powers of prevention.
Researchers have found that balancing a good skincare regimen with a healthy lifestyle is the best way to slow the signs of aging.
Current skincare products have a range of specially formulated blends to help keep skin young and fight the signs of aging. Also, eating sensibly, drinking plenty of water to keep yourself hydrated, and quitting smoking can all help skin.
However, the only way you will find the full benefit of any anti-aging products is to follow a healthy skincare routine.
Follow our steps to perform your at-home spa facial, and reward yourself with soft, glowing skin in the shortest time possible.
It's an exciting time for anti-aging in the fashion and beauty sectors.
A recent finding from Newcastle University shows the activity of one enzyme found in the mitochondria (or 'battery') of skin cells significantly declines as we age, causing fine lines, wrinkles, and loss of firmness in the skin.
The researchers note that their findings mean "we now have a specific biomarker, or a target, for developing and screening anti-aging treatments and cosmetic creams that may counter this decline in bio-energy."
The health and beauty industries may still be a few years away from targeting specific areas of the powerhouse of cells that halt the signs of aging. But there is plenty we can do right now for youthful skin that glows and is firm and line-free.
If a beautiful skin in your 40s and 50s is your aim, then prepare to take a multifaceted approach to health and beauty – one that begins within.
Our skin suffers from wear and tear of aging. It gets drier and thinner with wrinkles, large pores, age spots, and other concerns. What you eat, hormones, sun exposure, stress, alcohol, and smoking affects your skin. You cannot put a stop to aging, but you can improve the radiance of your skin. Proper care and positive lifestyle changes will help too.

How you get rid of unwanted hair on your body is a matter of personal preference. Some of us prefer epilators and hot waxes, others creams, or wet shavers.

Learn and choose the best natural skincare recipes for you. All focussed on revitalizing and skin rejuvenation.
According to a report published on Statista, we find that skincare is the most profitable product category in the cosmetics industry. Market value projections for skincare products alone grew beyond $20.1 billion by the end of last year.
However, many of us often like to have natural remedies for skincare, which is why, in this post, we would like to share with you some homemade products.
Are you wondering why many households around the world keep rose water as a staple of their daily life? It's not that difficult to understand - rose water and other beauty products derived from roses have many benefits.
The positive effects of rose petals on your skin and health are incredibly diverse. It's the reason why many women use rose products as a part of their regular beauty regimen.
Do you follow a skincare routine, including cleansing and moisturizing? If so, what if we told you that you're doing it all wrong?
You might be sitting there and thinking: How hard can skincare or face washing be? I wash my face twice a day and stock up on cleanser and moisturizers to keep beautified?
However, you may be shocked to know that a lot can go wrong, from using face wipes, soap bars, or moisturizer that doesn't match your skin type. These typical mistakes, and more, can be holding you back from getting the beautiful, brighter skin that you've always wanted.
Coffee is the wonder beverage that many of us use to kickstart our day. Sure this popular beverage is excellent for opening the eyes, stimulating the brain, and getting an excellent start to the day.
However, what makes it even better is that coffee has some other amazing benefits. Among those are the benefits it provides for better skincare. Yes, you read that right, coffee is excellent for your skin.
We are guilty. We love our clothes snug and demand that our bandage dresses fit like a second skin. With that comes the challenges of keeping fit, shapely, and trim.
How do you stay fit and trim without giving up your favorites? Does keeping a flat and trim tummy require you to hit the gym at every waking moment? In our humble opinion - no, absolutely not (although we think some exercise is necessary).
Getting a natural tummy tuck is not about trying to look like a model or cutting back on all your favorite snacks. Instead, we take a holistic approach, such as drinking more water, reducing stress, targeted exercise, and eating a balanced diet.
3. Skin Protection
Techniques and routines to protect your skin from the ravages of weather, pollution and other hazards.
During summer, the sun allows us to have fun with our loved ones at the beach and tan our skin with some color. However, if you are not careful, the sun’s rays can harm your skin.
That is why it is essential to use products that will keep your skin safe after exposure.
We all want clear, glowing, blemish-free, and wrinkle-free skin. We see women on Instagram and in magazines, who have no pores at all and wonder, how do they do that?

In this article, we take a hard look at sunburn and how to treat and avoid it.

4. Skin And Nutrition
A set of nutritional guides to help support and keep your skin youthful, glowing and healthy.
Most women are very conscious about the health of their hair and skin. Many visit beauty shops seeking the best products for glossy hair and glowing skin, and take the time to match their hair color to their skin tone.
However, what you eat plays a notable role in your hair and skin health, and there are many foods for healthy hair and skin.
If you're into beauty and skincare, you may have seen collagen supplements around, as well as manufacturers claiming that taking collagen can smooth wrinkles, boost firmness, and increase elasticity.
So much of the body relies on this collagen matrix as a structure and support system, and if you don't get enough of it, your body's structural integrity starts to weaken.
Eating antioxidants might be the solution to many diseases, even aging.
From preventing heart disease to slowing down degenerative conditions, to stopping cancer, to reducing blood pressure - it all points back to antioxidants, and their ability to fight free radicals.
Fresh fruit, vegetables, and whole-grain products are rich in antioxidant nutrients. Adding these foods to your diet helps prevent the accumulation of free radicals, improves your cellular activity, and might just let you live longer.
The absolute last thing you need when you are getting ready for date night is a zit on top of your nose or in the middle of your forehead. It puts a wrench in your plans and style, similar to an ill-fitting pair of leggings.

The American Academy of Dermatology (AAD) estimates that acne affects over 50 million Americans. And while for most of these people the condition goes away on its own, there are still a lot of people battling pimples, blackheads, whiteheads, and excessively oily skin.
Stretch marks often get in the way of our perceptions, leaving us insecure in the way we look and feel. We know they shouldn't, but they still do, and often we can't help it.
We are firm believers in loving our flaws; however, sometimes, having a mechanism to deal directly with our insecurities helps. It calms us. So we pulled together these seven natural remedies for stretch marks to help us fight the battle both in our minds and on our bodies.
Pamper yourself with them and feel good about your body because no matter how many marks and scars it might have, it is still beautiful.
