Prep Your Skin for the Summers

4 Ways to Prepare Your Skin for the Summer

Preparations for summer typically mean scheduling vacations, hitting the gym to trim down and tighten up, and purchasing the trendiest bathing suit to flatter your body type. Sure, these are all great ways to prepare for a fun-filled summer, but we mustn’t forget about the importance of gorgeous skin. There’s something about smooth, glowing, sexy-looking skin that makes anything you put on in the summer look so much better.

Below are four things you should start doing:

1. Scrub Away the Old

Did you know that underneath your outer layer of skin cells, there is beautiful skin waiting to be exposed? Washing and rinsing is simply not enough to get the dead skin cells, dirt, and debris off your skin. However, utilizing exfoliating products could do the trick. You’ll need to exfoliate with care so that you don’t harm the skin. Invest in good scrubs, polishing cloths, or brushes to get the job done.

2. Hair Removal

If you're planning on sitting poolside at a hotel or strolling the boardwalk with some short cutoffs, you’re going to need to remove that unwanted hair. No matter what your hair removal process is, you must be careful to treat the skin properly to avoid irritation. Irritation could show in the form of hair bumps, scratches, and cuts. Many women like hot wax hair removal because it gets all the “stragglers” and often leaves the skin smoother for a longer period of time. To reduce irritation after waxing, it is a good idea to refrain from staying out in the sun for long periods of time as the follicles are sensitive to heat.

3. Eat the Right Foods to Fight Potential UV Ray Damage

Part of having flawless skin for the summer will depend on the types of foods you’re eating. You can actually improve the health of your skin and protect it from damaging elements of the weather by choosing specific types of food. Tomatoes, for instance, are a great food to help ward off the damaging UV rays. Cooked tomatoes are high in antioxidants that fight the effects of the sun. Eating tomatoes daily will help to reduce any blistering, redness, or swelling that may result from sunburn.

4. Treat the Imperfections

If you’re going to show off your skin this year, you’re probably going to want to get rid of those unsightly imperfections. From acne to cellulite and moles, there are a lot of things that we’d simply like to correct about our skin. While there are certainly plenty of products on the market you can try using, there are a few things you want to keep in mind:
Before you purchase any products it is best to speak with a dermatologist. They can assist you in diagnosing skin issues and help you in determining your skin type so that you purchase products that will actually work best for your skin.

Purchase all natural products to reduce the amount of chemicals you’re applying to the skin.
When you find a product, stick to it for a while to see if it will work. Switching from one product to the next without a grace period can actually be counterproductive.

Who needs expensive treatments to feel comfortable in the skin they’re in? By taking the proper precautions now to heal and protect your skin, you’ll be ready to look your best this summer. Remember, if you have serious skin problems it is best to speak with a dermatologist to receive a proper diagnosis and treatment plan.

REVIEW: Johnson's Baby Lotion on Adult Skin

I am itching to do some makeup EOTDs and LOTDs since a while now but with guests at home I am not getting any time... So for a while you guys are stuck with me doing reviews. Not that my reviews do not need much efforts but as compared to EOTDs and LOTDs, reviews are a little bit less demanding where time constraints are concerned... Don't you agree? :)

Today I shall be reviewing the Johnson's baby lotion and before you raise your eye brows and say to yourself "WTF" let me make it absolutely clear that I bought it when I was out of a moisturiser and needed one pronto! This was the only one available and so I just bought it. I figured if it was good for babies, how could it be bad for me? The truth? Read on ;)

Johnson's Baby Lotion is Clinically proven to be mild and mild it sure is. It has a soft and soothing fragrance, which I love. Once applied it gets absorbed really fast and does not leave a residual oiliness or greasiness. It would be perfect for normal ski…

Makeup Class: Difference Between A Bronzer, A Highlighter, An Illuminator & A Brightener

Bronzer Vs Highlighter Vs Illuminator Vs Brightener 

Very often than not being a beauty blogger I come across the terms Bronzer, Highlighter, Brightener and Illuminator at least a dozen times a day. These terms are everywhere and people use them in their daily conversation with so much confidence that you'd be surprised at how wrong many of them are in their usages. Oh! Yes even I have made mistakes in the past about their connotations and today armed with research, experiments and well just plain analysis I have reached a consensus where I can now confidently put forth the results of my hard work...

Yes, today ladies and gentlemen, I shall be clearing all the confusion that prevails behind Bronzers, Highlighters, Illuminators and Brighteners!

Review of MAC Studio Fix Fluid Foundation In Shade NC42

Guest Post By: Rmyah

There are days when I just cannot help look at myself through any reflective surface that I can. Be it mirrors, glass doors, rear view mirrors, the back of a spoon and even a pond. And then there are days when I wished everyone was blind, every mirror shattered, the serene water turbulent, anything to avoid me seeing my face. One such day when my skin was going through a blearrrgh phase I decided to put my face on the web and show you how I deal with it. My savior is the MAC studio fix fluid foundation which has been my HG foundation for about three months now.
