It's Wise To Moisturize-Beauty

posted Aug 16, 2012, 9:10 PM by Jalandhari Kom   [ updated Aug 16, 2012, 9:10 PM by Jalandhari Kom ]

Moisturizers creams, lotions, oils work by attracting and trapping moisture and oil in the skin, leaving it soft and supple. They remove the dull, ashen appearance of dry skin that many women of color are prone to. A good moisturizer will also serve as a barrier between your skin and the elements, such as harsh wind and pollution. 

Choosing the right moisturizer is key to keeping skin smooth while not clogging pores. Moisturizers come in a variety of types, including ones that are oil-based, water-based, oil-free, and vitamin-enriched. To choose the best moisturizer for you, you'll need to consider your skin type and seasonal change. 

For Oily Skin. Women with oily skin can typically forgo a moisturizer. Yes, despite what your mother may have taught you, moisturizers will not prevent wrinkles and you will normally not need moisturizer unless your skin gets dry in the winter. In that case, opt for an oil-free formula that hydrates the skin. Consider products containing glycerin or other humectants that draw moisture to skin without clogging pores or imparting a greasy feel to the skin (Fashion Fair Oil Free Moisturizer). 

For Combination Skin. Apply a light lotion once or twice a day to the dry areas of the skin only. You will probably not need to apply the moisturizer to the fore-head and nose, which are typically oily. During the summer, switch to an oil-free product, such as Black Opal Oil Free Moisturizing Lotion, or eliminate it altogether. 

For Normal Skin. You do not need to moisturize unless your skin becomes dry in winter or in certain climates. In that case, use an oil-free moisturizer like Black Opal Oil Free Moisturizing Lotion. 

For Dry Skin. Moisturize two or three times a day, depending on your needs and your skin on a given day. During the fall and winter, use a rich cream or lotion designed for dry skin (Lancome Absolute Replenishing Creme SPF 15, Cetaphil Moisturizing Cream, Lubriderm Daily UV Lotion SPF 15, MD Forte Replenish Hydrating Cream Hydra Sorbet Aquatique, Moisturel Therapeutic Cream). Switch to a lighter lotion in the spring and summer. Avoid products containing vitamin A or retinol, which can further dry the skin. Also, steer clear of greasy products (Vaseline) that can clog pores, especially if your skin is acne prone. 

For Sensitive Skin. Follow the guide for oily, dry, or combination skin, but choose your moisturizer carefully. A water based formula may be best. Avoid ingredients that can irritate your skin, such as alcohol, lanolin, retinol, vitamin A, PABA sunscreen, or fragrance. Products to try include Cetaphil Moisturizing Lotion, Keri Sensitive Skin, Lubriderm Seriously Sensitive Lotion, and Neutrogena Moisture for Sensitive Skin. 

For Hyperpigmenting Skin. In general, moisturizing hyperpigmentation prone skin whether it's dry, combination, or sensitive is important because excessive dryness of this type of skin can lead to itching, scratching, and discolorations. However, when selecting moisturizers it's best to avoid products with added ingredients such as vitamins, exfoliating acids (AHAs, BHAs) , and benzoyl peroxide unless you patch test your skin with these products. Those extra ingredients have the potential for inflaming the skin and then producing further hyperpigmentation. In other words, less is more. However, a moisturizer containing sunscreen, such as Olay Complete UV Protective Moisture Lotion or Aveeno Positively Radiant Daily Moisturizer SPF 15, may be beneficial in preventing suninduced pigmentation. When selecting moisturizers for this type of skin, follow the guidelines for sensitive skin

Extras 

Many moisturizers on the market contain a host of additional ingredients you may or may not need. These include the following. 

Vitamins. Vitamin enriched products typically contain either vitamin CorE. These ingredients are considered antioxidants and may be beneficial for reducing sun damage and improving the appearance or the skin. Although preliminary studies may indicate improvement in the appearance of the skin with these products, many of the claimed benefits have not yet been proved definitively. 

Vitamin A and retinol are often included in products for their anti aging and anti wrinkling properties. These products are beneficial in many cases, but excessive dryness and irritation of the skin can occur. Consult your dermatologist before selecting these products. 

Additional supplements often included in skin-care products include coenzyme Ql0, Kinerase, niacin, copper peptides, and alpha lipoic acid. These ingredients are touted for their possible anti aging properties and may improve the skin's appearance in some women. 

Alphahydroxy acids (AHAs). These acids exfoliate the top layer of skin. AHAs can reduce sun damage and acne and leave the skin with a wonderful glow, but overuse could irritate skin. I particularly like the MD Forte line of AHA products. 

Sunscreen. Choosing a moisturizer containing sunscreen cuts out one step in your daily routine. The sunscreen should have an SPF of at least 15 in order to be effective. 

Moisturizer Moves 

To moisturize your facial skin effectively 

• Apply the product directly onto damp skin after washing your face or showering. This way, the water is literally sealed into the top layers of your skin. 

• Using your fingers, dot the moisturizer on forehead, cheeks, nose, and chin to ensure even distribution, then blend in. 

DRY-SKIN TIP 

Take shorter showers at lukewarm temperature. Then apply moisturizer directly onto damp skin.

Dress to Impress

posted Aug 16, 2012, 9:09 PM by Jalandhari Kom   [ updated Aug 16, 2012, 9:09 PM by Jalandhari Kom ]

Have you ever wondered why that girl from the bar never called you back? The conversation came easy, the drinks were flowing, you could feel the chemistry, and you were dressed to kill…or were you?

Your mother always told you that you only get one chance to make a first impression and first impressions can make or break you. Women look at every last detail, from your tasseled shoes to the amount of goop you have in your hair. Be honest guys, women aren’t the only ones who try on five different outfits before deciding what to wear for a night out on the town. And it is perfectly normal. But how do you know which outfit is the right one to impress the girl on your first date? 

Let me take you through it step by step. Clothes aren’t the only thing a woman looks at when you’re dressing to impress; it’s the whole package. Fortunately or not, the outside is what she sees first. What you see is sometimes what you get. So what do you wear? 

Out with the Old…

Rule number one is: don’t under dress. Guys have a tendency to pull on a pair of pants and the first shirt they find and head out the door. You have to look put-together, like some sort of effort was made for her. So take those ratty, old tennis shoes and toss ‘em! Take your t-shirts with big, loud prints and forget about them! And yes, women think carpenters are sexy but that doesn’t give you the green light to wear your paint-stained jeans. The solution is simple. Ask a friend (male or female) over the day of your big date. Not only will they help calm your nerves but they’ll also give you their honest opinion on your chosen outfit. Second, an iron can also be a man’s best friend. You’d be surprised what a little pressing can do to change your look. Finally, don’t rush! There’s nothing wrong with taking an extra half hour to prepare. If you take the time to get ready, your date will take the time to notice. 

…In with the New

So while the first rule might seem simple enough, some guys might take it too far, which brings us to rule number two: don’t overdress. We don’t expect you to know all the latest fashion trends of the day and we don’t expect you to follow them either. This second rule doesn’t only deal with being a label whore but also with men going overboard; that is to say those men don’t know when enough is enough. While some guys take a shirt, smell it and decide whether or not it is clean, others think their shirt has to say Hugo Boss, Armani, or Ralph Lauren to look good. So let’s make your sweater selection. Stay away from Grandma’s knitted birthday gift and nipple shirts. The former screams little kid while the latter leaves nothing to the imagination. The tight shirt may not be an option if you’re not comfortable enough with your body, but if you are physically fit, why not let the woman imagine what’s under there to maintain an element of mystery. You can’t go wrong with a button shirt, leaving the first couple of buttons at the top undone. It’s casual, comfortable, and classic. 

A Dab Will Do You.

Do you remember the last time you were walking down the street and almost got whiplash because someone passed by you with an overwhelming smell? Our sense of smell is one of our most powerful senses, which leads us to rule number three: always remember to smell good. Some smells take us back to childhood and others remind us of something very specific. The same applies to your cologne. But why is cologne used in the first place? Its purpose is twofold: it becomes your “signature” and the sense of smell is heightened when things start getting hot and heavy. Again, less is more. No need to drown yourself with the stuff, keep in mind that when it comes to cologne, a little goes a long way. The best places to apply your signature are the inside of your wrists, your neck, and even your chest. 

Attention to Detail

Sometimes it’s the little things that make a difference and rule number four reminds you to pay attention to detail. We all know women have an eye for the minute and the slightest thing can turn us off. So the solution is simple boys, don’t overlook the small stuff. Just like women like carpenters, some women also think scruffy is sexy, but on your first date, go with the clean shaven look to be safe. And not only are you going to brush your teeth, you’re also going to break out the dental floss for this one just to be extra safe. Make sure your hair is neat and doesn’t hold an entire bottle of product in it. Remember to clean those nails. You may look like a man’s man with dirty nails, but it’s a turn off for women. Finally, keep the accessories to a minimum. You can wear your watch and necklace or a ring but that’s it. If you’re wearing more jewelry than your date then we could have a problem!

Of course, not all women are the same but most will agree that less is more when making a good first impression. So remember the four simple rules: don’t dress like you’re going to watch the game at a buddy’s house or like you’re about to walk down the runway; smell great and put in the effort to care of the details. You’re sure to have plenty of second, third, and fourth dates!

All You Ever Wanted To Know About Earrings But Were Afraid to Ask

posted Aug 16, 2012, 9:08 PM by Jalandhari Kom   [ updated Aug 16, 2012, 9:08 PM by Jalandhari Kom ]

It is thought that earrings date back to 3000 BC where they originated in Asia and appeared in 2 formats, one being the simple hoop earring and the other the more elaborate pendant earring.
The oldest earrings ever found by archaeologists were discovered in royal graves in Iraq and date back to around 2500 BC. Gold, silver and bronze hoop earrings have also been found dating back to 2000 BC in Crete. In those days it was customary to bury jewelry with the dead.

In 16th century in the New Kingdom of ancient Egypt a type of earring called an earplug became fashionable and these fitted snugly into a wide stretched hole in the earlobe. This type of piercing is seen on the sculpture of Tutankhamen.

Poverty in the Dark ages meant that work with precious metals dwindled although some goldsmiths preserved designs that were to later emerge in 7th century Greece. The most popular earrings then there were the pendant type and they often featured a bird or likenesses of the gods Eros and Nike.

In the 2nd century during the Roman Empire, earrings became a popular way for rich women to show off their wealth and the use of precious gemstones in the jewelry also became more popular.

During the Middle Ages earrings became less popular and practical due to the popularity of elaborate hairstyles and headdresses.  In fact for a time it was considered immoral for respectable married woman not to have their heads covered in public.

In 16th century Italy, hairstyles changed with hair being swept away from the face leaving ears exposed although for another 100 years things stayed the same in England, Spain and France with the wearing of high collars keeping earrings out of fashion.

By the 17th century, earrings became very fashionable accessory for the well dressed lady across the whole of Europe. One of the most popular designs of those times were the very large heavy pendant type earrings called girandoles which were great favourites of Queen Victoria. These earrings required a substantial amount of precious metals and gemstones and so were very heavy, which meant that most people that wore them suffered from elongated earlobes.

Although earrings were popular with wealthy people throughout the ages, they were also popular with poorer people who adopted their own styles which were less elaborate and made from less expensive materials.

It wasn’t until the 20th century that earrings were completely revolutionised. Different fittings appeared such as screw and clip on as well as those for pierced ears and it also became the norm for women to wear earrings in the day and not just for special occasions. The 1960’s marked a massive change for the wearing of earrings when designs became completely unrestrained and it became common to see men also wearing earrings although most only usually wear one earring. Women began to collect earrings and with so many designs available the choices were endless.

Today the choice is even greater and the popularity of earrings increases with many people now having more than one set of piercings in which to display their jewelry. Modern materials such as titanium and different types of plastics have also become popular in the making of earrings because of their lightness, design possibilities and in the case of titanium because of its hypoallergenic qualities.

There is now a never ending choice of different types of earrings from modern trendy cheap and cheerful everyday earrings to the more expensive gold, silver or platinum earrings inlaid with diamonds and other precious gemstones.

Mistakes in Men’s Fashion That Need to Be Avoided

posted Aug 16, 2012, 9:07 PM by Jalandhari Kom   [ updated Aug 16, 2012, 9:07 PM by Jalandhari Kom ]

It is not just women who need to be careful about the way they dress. Now even men need to be careful how you dress. The costume or the outfit has to be chosen based up the body built and height. A muscular man will goes well with any kind of outfit; men who are well built can wear tight vests and t-shirts. It really looks amazing and sexy. But if you are lean and slim avoid tight clothing, go for larger sized shirts, but not too large. Men who are slim can also wear a white tee inside their shirts, it looks neat. Avoid wearing dark colored tee and shirts if you have a dark skin tone, go for lighter shades. Similarly if you are fair, avoid colors like yellow and white. Here is a tip: If you have too much hair on your chest, remove them using proper hair removers or visit a beauty salon to keep yourself clean and neat. Hairless chest helps you to maintain personal hygiene and free from body odor. You need to remember that too much of hair products like gels and hair fixing sprays can make you look shabby. When going for a wedding or any other important occasion avoid using color gels, it will surely spoil your look. Using wet look gel is small amounts is good enough to keep your hair style neat and well combed. Use hair spray moderately, and hair sprays are basically suitable for men with short hair.

Mixing two types of jackets and pants often ends as fashion disaster! One should always need to be very careful when you are wearing suits and pants / trousers purchased from different places. For example, just because your pant and jacket are black in color, then it doesn’t mean that they can be worn together! There are many shades of blacks, so therefore you need to be very careful when mix and matching. Another terrible mistake men make is, they mix up two kinds of materials. They end up wearing a coat made of wool and a pant made from polyester. It looks ridiculous and doesn’t match at all. Another important fashion mistake that men need to avoid is their silly socks color! Many think that wearing pink or red socks inside your shoes is not noticeable. There are certain color socks that has to be worn only for a particular outfit. For example, white socks has to be worn only for sports, it will look disastrous if you wear it with your back pant and shoes. You need to make sure the color of your shoes matches with your pant color and not with your shoes
