Tips To Apply Mascara:

Nidhi Sharma
Mascara makes your eyes stand out by adding length and thickness to it. If you don't have time to wear a lot of eye shadow, adding mascara will bring depth and open up your eyes. 

When picking a mascara, you should consider the formula you want like if you plan to wear it all day go for waterproof mascara. It works wonders if you are going out in the sun or sweating. If you have very fine hair than you can go for mascara which gives thickness to your lashes and those who has short eyelashes, can go for mascara which gives extra length and volume.

There are many different shades available in the market. Black mascara opens the eyes and gives the lashes a fuller effect. But people who have very light skin can also go for brown black mascara.

  • Gently curl your lashes.
  • While applying mascara, slowly wiggle the brush back and forth motion and sweep upward. Keep repeating the process until you get the desired thickness. You can apply 2 to 3 coats but make sure it doesn't look clumsy.


Tip: Don't pump the wand in and out of the bottle. Pumping introduces air to the tube which will make the mascara dry out faster causing flaking and clumping. It can also allow bacteria to enter. Discard your used mascara every 3 to 4 months.

As we all know Prevention is better than Cure. There are certain things you should avoid in order to prevent forming scars at first place.

  1.  Don't pick or squeeze them. When you get Acne, there is inflammation on your skin and there is a loss of collagen. Collagen is a protein fibre helps in elasticity of the skin. So squeezing your pimple leads to further inflammation and cause bacteria which means more loss of collagen.

How To Shape Your Eyebrows At Home:

Nidhi Sharma
The shape of your eyebrows can enhance your features and frame your eyes. The most flattering shape or arch will depend on your facial structure. If you have an oval face, you can choose an arch shape and if you have a straight face then you might want a straight eyebrow shape. When waxed the right way, they can change the look of your face and make you look younger and widen your forehead.

If you don't want to pay for a pro job, its ok to go at it on your own. You have many options, including plucking and waxing. Today I am gonna share the way I shape my eyes, with you guys. I am sure you all must have heard about ready to use wax strips which is basically for legs and arms. I use these ones because I can cut them according to my need, thin or thick according to the size of the forehead and its a cheap way too because you can get so many strips out of one big wax strip. 


You will need:


- Wax strip

- Scissors
- Tweezers


Directions:


  1. Cut your wax strips according to your need.
  2. Place it on your unwanted hair and pull them out. Waxing your hair before tweezing will reveal the brow shape and remove the weight and bulk so you can create an ideal shape.
  3. Supplement your waxing with the tweezing and get rid of more unwanted hair. Tweezing is best if you don't have a lot of hair to remove and waxing is ideal to clean up peach fuzzy hairs above your brows.

Sunscreen- Why It's Necessary?

Nidhi Sharma
Excessive exposure to direct sunlight is potentially harmful and it can result in Sunburn if a person doesn't use suitable sunscreen. The Ozone layer is depleting and your body needs shielding from harmful rays. Sunlight contains Ultraviolet(UV) rays. Ultraviolet Radiation is the number one cause of Skin Cancer, Premature Ageing of the skin, and uneven pigmentation of the skin. Sun protection is guarding your body from the adverse effect of sunlight. Sunscreens are products used to reduce amount of UVA and UVB that's is absorbed by the skin. Prolonged Sun exposure gives no extra production of necessary Vitamin D, in fact it exposes the skin to the harmful effects of Ultraviolet radiation.



All skin types are prone to these effects, though Skin Cancer is most common in fairer skin types. However, Sunscreen should be used by everyone as a part of one's daily skin care regimen. Everyday application of sunscreen can slow or temporarily prevent the development of wrinkles and sagging skin. Sunscreens are available in many forms- spray, gel, lotion etc. A sunscreen should also be Hypoallergenic and Non Comedogenic so it does not cause a rash or clog the pores, which can cause acne. Non Comedogenic sunscreens are suited for oily and combination skin types. 

It is advised that you generously apply a water resistant sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30 to all exposed skin 15 to 30 minutes before sun exposure and re-apply approximately every few hours, even on cloudy days, and after swimming and sweating. Wearing a hat with a brim and anti-UV sunglasses can provide protection against UV radiations entering the eyes.

Make sure you do not apply expired sunscreen lotion to your skin as it has literally fallen apart, so the formulation no longer works as a sun protectant. In addition, it can cause skin irritation.

I hope its does convince you to always wear sunscreen before going out in sun.

Thus it stimulates the hair follicles and encourages growth. You can make a hair mask by grating 1 tbsp ginger into a small bowl. Now add 1 tbsp of olive oil or jojoba oil to it and mix it well. Massage on your scalp using this mixture in circular direction. Rub it with your finger tips for 5 minutes. Leave it on your hair for minimum of 30 minutes. You will start to feel the warmth.
