Reasons Not to Wash Hair

Surely, nobody likes to walk around with greasy hair. Don’t worry, we are not urging you to do so. But, did you know that there are situations when it is not recommended to wash hair? We have three situations when you may want to delay hair washing for a while.

You should not wash hair after getting a perm

You should wait at least 24 hours before washing your hair after getting a perm. Some hair professionals recommend to wait 72 hours. In fact, the effect of the chemical components can be neutralized, which can lead to messy hair with uneven level of curling. Moreover, you should use special shampoos, which are specially formulated for permed hair. Those shampoos are much softer than the regular shampoo.

Do not wash hair right before your hairdresser appointment

Any hair professional will start the session by washing the client’s hair. Surely, it may be a little embarrassing to come with very greasy or dirty hair to your hairdersser appointment. However, it would be much worse to wash your hair too frequently. So, you need to overcome your fears and have your hair just as it is, the specialist will understand.

Why is it forbidden to wash hair after a Botox injection?

Botox procedures are becoming increasingly popular those days. Doctors typically warn their patients to avoid any type of face massage (including the areas around it) and instruct them not to sleep on their faces. Hair washing is a procedure that involves the scalp and the face. So you should avoid washing your hair right after a Botox injection. For how long? In order to avoid any unpleasant side-effects, such as bruising, you should wait at least six hours.

Use Green Concealer

You’ve probably seen green correctors, concealers, and foundation sticks in various cosmetic boutiques and supermarkets. But, there is always something that keeps you from buying those products. Most likely you simply do not know how to use the green masking products.

Why do we need green concealer?

In order to understand how the green concealers work we need to recall the color wheel. You probably have heard that on this wheel the colors which are located opposite each other make pairs. Each color pair balances, or neutralizes, each other. Green is paired with red in this wheel. Therefore, this color neutralizes red. So, a green corrector can significantly mask redness, pimples, acne, and even overly rosy cheeks.

Color Wheel

When is the concealer not needed?

You absolutely do not need to rush to the store to buy a green concealer as soon as you notice redness. A regular foundation can deal with it just fine. You may need a special green concealer if your regular foundation can not completely mask the redness.

How to properly use the green concealer?

Basically, there are no special tricks on how to use this product. If you do everything well, then there will be no green or white spots after using the green concealer.
• Take a brush and cover only the pimple or the red area with the concealer
• Make sure to blend the edges in order to create smooth transition of color
• Cover the area with your regular foundation. It should completely cover the green color.
• A light touch of powder will not hurt. The powder will help keep your ”cover-up” stay in place and prevent smudging.

Why do we need green primer?

Green primer is a relatively new product for most of us. This is a semi-transparent makeup base, which helps the makeup stay fresh much longer. Some say that this product is even better than concealers and correctors at hiding redness. So, if you are experiencing such problem you may want to try this product, as it has been receiving very good reviews since its introduction.

Become As Erotically Burlesque As Christina Aguilera

We are not to experience yet the full sexy impact of Christina Aguilera, Cher and Kristen Bell playing the Burlesque’s gorgeous ladies as the film comes on the next month, but the cosmetic products that went to create their screen beauty are already out.

Smashbox Cosmetics unveiled a limited edition of Burlesque-inspired makeup collection comprising eight exquisite items in an super-luxe train case.

Eyes can be perfectly done using a black liquid liner pen, purple and pink eye shadows, and a cream eyeliner palette plus powder-applied shimmer and mascara for longer eyelashes.

Lips are certain to attract attention done with double-ended lip gloss, whether pink or berry depending on your mood. Now all that remains is to put on the final touch with the O-Glow cheek color (it will give you a celebrity-honored look) and highlight with powder.

Manicure Tips for a Busy Woman

You, like any woman, want your nails look healthy, beautiful and professionally well-attended to. But like most of us, you work every day, in addition, you have your home, children and relatives on you. But if you find it difficult to even to set aside time for manicure, there are some very simple tips to help your nails always be beautiful.

Buy a coating for the nails that strengthens

Its enough to use it once a week, but it will significantly reduce the time in the future to correct irregularities, layering, and any other nail defects. Try such products, they are available, for example, at Sally Hansen and Neutrogena.

Do not once again touch the cuticle and skin around the nail

When asked, “what is the most common mistake in home manicure?”, professionals answer: “too much meat”. This means that women fairly often cut too much skin. It is better to turn into manicure with cuticles pushed back and not cut.

Mini-manicures in the shower

Taking a bath or shower, do not forget about the nails, just like you do not forget about the hair or skin. Hot showers allow the skin to become softer, so after taking a bath always push the cuticle back with a stick. It is very simple to do this. It will save you time when you will need to do manicure quickly before leaving, you will no longer need to spend time on the cuticle. After a shower, do not forget to moisturize not only your hands and feet, but also the skin around the nails.

Mini-manicure during sleep

Sometimes you can do this procedure during sleep. Before going to bed, treat your hands with greasy lotion and wear gloves. Morning showers will wash away all skin particles, including from the cuticle.

Hand scrub daily

Keep this substance always close with soap and water so as not to forget to massage the hands a little once every day and carry out a good scrub. It also allows you not to waste time in handling hangnail and cuticle during nail painting.

Mini French Manicure

If you do not even have time to fiddle around with stripes, paint masks, and several colors of varnishes, then never you neglect the treatment of the back side of the nail. Buy a special white pencil for this and constantly paint nails from the back side, and also the edge of nails. Then the grooming will be obvious.

A balanced diet helps the state of nails

Fruits, vegetables, adequate amounts of water – these three components affect the state of the nails. You will immediately see that the nails and hair have become stronger when you simply start including these foods in your daily menu more regularly.
