Winter may well be your preferred time of year with all the holidays and festivals. While the white snowy fields with glistening and glittering stars in night amazes us, the days with all the snowfall gives an impression of a fairy tales. The big feast, bonfires, hot chocolates, makes winter everyone’s favorite season. However, winter has its own downturn too. The harsh winter winds are vile in wreaking havoc on the skin and no wonder even a person with a healthy skin experiences dry and flaky skin during winter. Actually, you need to take care of the skin to provide it protection from the windy, dry, and cold winds of winter. You don’t have to stay indoors most of the time in order to provide protection to your skin. You just have to take care of few things and winters will become all the more wonderful for you. Read on to know how to moisturize in winter and keep it soft, supple, and flawless during the harsh winter weather.
  • The first and foremost thing, which you have to keep in mind, is that you need to take a well balanced diet and drink enough water. With all the festivals and holidays, our diet goes out of window and we tend to binge on oily and junk foods. Since in winter we don’t feel much thirsty, we tend not to drink the usual eight glasses of water. Remember to drink enough water to keep you hydrated.
  • Apply a high quality moisturizer preferably from Clinique, Olay or Estee Lauder day care moisturizer with vitamin E on your skin just after you have taken the bath. It helps in locking the moisture in your body for a longer time.
  • If you cannot avoid going out in winter, wrap yourself with a long sleeved sweater and coats to combat harsh, cold wind of winters.
  • Follow the regime of cleansing, exfoliating, and moisturizing even during winters. It will help you keep your skin healthy. In winters, dead cells generally accumulate on the skin, and by following this regime, you can keep your skin healthy.
  • Wear sunscreen during the winters too as harmful sunrays may make the skin rough and dry.
  • You could also keep your home’s environment warm by running a humidifier inside the house.
  • Before you take bath, you could also apply oil preferably mustard, coconut, or olive oil on your skin. Warm a little amount of oil and generously apply it on your skin and massage it on the all the body parts. Now take bath how you normally do. It will not only keep your skin moisturized but will also keep the moisture intact for whole day.
  • Don’t take very hot shower and instead go for shower with warm water. You could also opt for bathing during nighttime as you will be in the warm environment only and your skin will not have to combat cold wind.
  • Never use soaps especially during winter. Use a moisturizing bathing lotion, which contains glycerin or olive oil.
  • Protect your lips with a good lip balm. You could also apply a little mustard oil in your navel at the time of sleeping to keep it moist and from getting chapped.
  • Some people suggest taking vitamin E supplements to keep the skin from drying. Taking omega-3 fish oils pills also help in combating dry skin.
  • You could also use Shea butter or Cocoa butter to keep your skin hydrated and moisturized.
  • You could also apply a mixture of almond oil and honey on your skin to keep it moisturized. Add few drops of honey in almond oil in 1/3 to 1 ratio and apply it on the skin. Rinse it if it feels too sticky otherwise keep in on your skin.

Facial Tips and Tricks:

  • Choosing a facial mask requires one to pay keen attention to the skin type and purchase a facial mask in accordance with the skin’s needs. These few minutes dedicated to finding the right kind of facial mask is what will spell the difference for the freshened and revitalized look to your face.
  • The other great benefit of commercially available facial masks is that they require minimum effort on your part as all the beautification, detoxification and exfoliation work is done by the active ingredients of the facial masks.
  • A facial mask is a unique and instantaneous way to complement the daily skin care routine and adds to the breathing power granted to the pores of the skin when combined with the beauty regime of cleansing, toning and moisturizing.
  • Whether your facial is the mask variety or cream-and-wash kind, take care that it must not be done too frequently as this can endanger the ph balance of your skin. Applying a facial mask should be restricted to a weekly procedure and correspond to your skin type to ensure the most positive beautifying effect to your face.
  • If you have a dry skin, look for facials that will replenish the moisture needed by your facial skin and go in for products that offer coco or shea butter, lanolin, Vaseline, natural or scented fruit or nut-extract oils for extra nourishment. Fruit extracts like strawberry, peach, apricot and banana with milk components are believed to rejuvenate and hydrate dry skin.
  • Choose a facial that will soften the upper derma layers and improve its color, clean and contract, intensify circulation of blood so you get that healthy, youthful glow on your face.
  • Always thoroughly cleanse your skin to receive the maximum benefit of a home facial and include the neck area for massaging and treating during a facial too .

Requisites for Home Facial


Lukewarm water
Skin cleanser
Exfoliant
Cotton balls
Skin tonic
Skin mask (you may also use some of our natural recipes)
Optional 1 chamomile tea bag or ¼ cup of chamomile tea
Clean towel 



Steps
Before you start
Timing. Set about 30 minutes for this activity. Select the place where you will do your facial, preferably your bathroom or bedroom. You will need to lie down for the mask and will need a chair to sit down for the other steps (you may also stand if you wish).

Organization: Make sure that you have everything that you will need in one place. This is a relaxing activity, so make sure you have everything handy and no last minute rushes.  


Steamy stuff. You will steam your face to open the pores and let the impurities out. You can put about 5 cups of water to boil. You can use only plain water or add some herbs such as chamomile, lavender, calendula or other calming herbs. You can also use a couple of drops of chamomile, rose or lavender essential oil (just 2 or 3 drops; you do not want to irritate your eyes). If you have roses at home, you can put rose petals in the water.

Make the chamomile tea and put some ice cubes to make it cold. If you do not have the tea, simply use cold water. Submerge two pieces of cotton; you will use them to relax your eyes during the mask.


 

   The Process
Clean your skin: Make sure that there is no makeup left. Clean gently around your eyes and use circular motion.

Exfoliate: Apply your exfoliator with gentle circular movements. Rinse with water.

Steaming time: When the water is boiling, lower the temperature if you are using a steamer. Or put the water in a bowl and bring it to the place you are going to do the facial. Put a towel over you head to preserve the steam and lean face over the bowl, about a foot away. The steam has to feel nice, although at moments it may feel overpowering. If you feel a burning sensation, stop! The temperature is probably too high for you or you are too close to the bowl. Keep the steam going for about 10 to 15 minutes.



Extraction: We all have black and white heads. The steam eliminates a lot of them, but if you see any visible black heads, this is the time to get them out. You may cover your nails with cotton if they are too long. You will use only your fingers or a special extraction tool to press around and get the impurities out. Most experts do not recommend touching pimples because you may spread the infection or make it bigger and leave scars later on. Be gentle. Apply toner on your skin using cotton or a sprayer.

The mask: You may select your mask according to your skin needs: if you have an oily skin, a purifying mask will be great; if you have dry or normal skin, or in winter time, a deep moisturizing mask will be better.

Apply the mask all over our face, lie down if you like and put soft music on. Place the cotton balls on your eyes. Leave the mask on for about 10 to 15 minutes. Relax.

Take the mask off with lukewarm water and apply toner again. Proceed further by applying your regular moisturizer and eye cream. If you are going to be expose yourself to the sun, apply sun protection.



Have a calming drink such as a warm decaffeinated tea or just plain water.

Frequency: Depending on you skin type you may do a facial every week or every other week.

Tips And Tricks To Using Eyeshadow

https://amzn.to/2TXqsuX
Whoever said that ‘eyes are the windows to a person’s soul’, I completely agree with him because none other facial feature expresses as much as the eyes.

Beautiful eyes can arrest the attention of the onlooker, and so it makes perfect sense to play up the beauty of your eyes with some makeup. In terms of eye make up, the most important role is played by the eyeshadow and if you want your eyes to work the magic you will surely benefit from the tips and tricks that we have enlisted here.

1. Blending is the secret: you’ll mostly need about two or three different shades of eyeshadow to create a dramatic effect, but unless you make all these shades blend smoothly and harmoniously into the each other you may not be able to achieve the desired effect.

2. Choosing the shades: there are just two ways to decide on what eyeshadow color will suit you best, and these are either you have to match the eye shadow’s shade with the natural color of your eyes or go in for some contrasting shade. You may have to experiment, a little, to find out what shades highlight the natural beauty of your eyes in the best possible way.

3. Don’t over extend the territory: some women extend their eyeshadow right on to the brow bone, but that’s not how you’re suppose to use eyeshadow, you need to end your eyeshadow a little before you reach the brow bone.

4. Highlighting the crease: it’s important to blend the highlighter around the outer edge of the crease, to make your eyes appear larger and more beautiful.

5. Primer is a must: before you proceed with applying the eyeshadow, it’s always better to use a primer because a primer makes your eyelids look smoother while at the same time it will make your eye makeup to last longer.

6. Be careful with the shimmer: use shimmer in moderation, because any excess of it may make the fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes become more prominent.

Which Blush Type Should You Choose?

https://www.amazon.in/gp/search/ref=as_li_qf_sp_sr_il_tl?ie=UTF8&tag=fashion066e-21&keywords=blush&index=aps&camp=3638&creative=24630&linkCode=xm2&linkId=a4a37df80dd7ab7cf47011ebe7fd67d5
When you go buying blusher for your face, it is important to consider what type of blusher you should buy. There is a wide array of textures and finishes in which it is available, and if you choose the wrong type of blusher using it may become a bit messy and a bit tricky.

While your skin type does count in making a choice, about the blusher type that will suit you best, you also need to look at how easy it is to apply the particular type and whether it is easier to blend, to get to the right effect.

There are four different types of blushers, and we have detailed them out here so that it becomes easier for you to pick and choose the perfect type.

Powder Blush

This is the most commonly available type, and nearly every well known makeup brand manufactures this type. This is long lasting and fairly easy to apply, and that’s what makes it the most popular. The best way to apply powder blush is using a makeup brush, as with the makeup brush it becomes easy to spread it evenly on your cheeks and to blend it well with your natural skin.

Gel Blush

This one isn’t as easy to apply, as the one we just talked about, but it is still popular because of the lovely translucent shine that it gives to your cheeks. This is best for you when your skin is somewhere between normal to oily. For this you don’t really need a makeup brush, as it can be easily applied using just your fingertips. It dries up quickly and is much more long lasting than the powder version.

Cream Blush

This is a little thicker than all the other blusher types, and as the name is indicative it comes with a cream base. And obviously, with its cream base, it is ideal for dry skin as it contains a lot of moisturizing ingredients. The creamy texture allows your skin to absorb the blush easily, while at the same time it makes it easier to spread it and to blend it.

Tint Blush

These aren’t very popular, but they’re definitely the best choice when you want to proceed with applying blush without using the foundation as a base. Even in terms of touch-up it’s much more convenient, than all the other types, however you don’t really need to touch it up so often because one application can easily last you all through the day. But you need to be very careful while applying it, because it dries up very fast, and thus blending it can turn out to be a bit tricky.

How To Plump Up Your Lips

https://www.amazon.in/gp/search/ref=as_li_qf_sp_sr_il_tl?ie=UTF8&tag=fashion066e-21&keywords=Lip Products&index=aps&camp=3638&creative=24630&linkCode=xm2&linkId=04589679acd5757c654db88b55110442
You cannot hold back age but you can certainly do something to keep your skin and hair in good shape which makes you look younger than you are.

As we grow up we tend to lose the plumpness of the lips so that by the time we are in our fifties our lips start thinning out.

This can be prevented by the use of a proper lip balm when we go out in the sun. Sun rays affect the skin on our lips to a large extent. It is always nice to use some natural ingredients on the beautiful lips. You could use some butter fresh from warmed up milk and some sugar on the lips.

Sugar exfoliates the skin on the lips by taking the dry skin away. You can also use some lemon as a scrub on the lips. Next use some natural moisturizer.

This is a good way you can do up your lips to make them look plump and full. Use some eye shadow powder that is pink, light brown or natural. You can use some lip liner to paint the outline.

Follow the curve of the lips and then apply some eye shadow with a lipstick brush. You can then use some gloss to cover the lips. The lips would look plump and full undoubtedly.

Many of us aspire to have lips like Angelina Jolie’s but after a lip job many of us end up have lips like MJ’s. Lip jobs just don’t work for many. Either the lips get too full or too stretched.

Long Lasting Lip Color & Lip Makeup


It is best that we try top achieve the pout naturally. Full lips make your face appear sexier and vibrant. You need not paint your lips too red if you have full lips. You could paint them a pink shade or a brown to give them the soft and subdued natural look.

You can always go in for a permanent option of plumping your lips but natural options and achieving the plumpness through make up is also possible.

Flaunt your lips and full lips look best when they frame a smile within. Here is a tip. Look at the mirror and try to smile the best way so that your lips look healthy and attractive. Flash that smile and be confident.

Hair Styles to Suit your Face










https://www.amazon.in/gp/search/ref=as_li_qf_sp_sr_il_tl?ie=UTF8&tag=fashion066e-21&keywords=skin care&index=aps&camp=3638&creative=24630&linkCode=xm2&linkId=7e7c9ffb5bb9a4921d161246efc5b395
   Heart             Oval               Round               Square        Triangular

Beautiful hair is the crowning glory of an attractive woman. So hair care is an extremely important aspect of beauty. But you should make sure that you have a style that suits your face and your hair type. Of course, it should be in fashion too. Although, sometimes the simplest of styles are the best.

Based on Type of Hair
Let us see which styles go well with your type of hair. 
  • Thin and fine: If your hair is thin and fine, keep it short and fluffy
  • Medium or coarse: This hair can handle most styles
  • Heavy or thick: If your hair is heavy or thick, keep it at a medium length or it will not hang well.
 


What is the shape of your face?

In order to determine the shape of your face, you will need to measure it.  Measure your face from top to bottom and from side to side.  If your face is oval shaped, then the length will equal to one and a half times the width.  When the length of your face equals the width, then you have a round face.  Triangular shaped faces have wide chins and narrow foreheads.  Lastly, square shaped faces have a jawline, cheekbone and forehead almost equal in width.


Heart-shaped face

In order to express your features, you must try to diminish the width of your forehead and make your jaw wider.  If you want bangs, wear them full and curly.  Wear your hair fuller at the top than near your jawline.  Your hair should be either short or of medium length and point your hair towards your face, since this will help to widen your chin.  If you love short cut bobs up to your chin, then you should definitely get one, since your heart-shaped face will make you look like you just walked out of a magazine.

Oval faces

Since, you are blessed with an oval face, mostly any hairstyle will look good on you.  You can wear your hair short, medium or long.  A wonderful hairstyle would be one in which you do a side or a center parting and let your hair rest on your shoulders.  In addition, you may also wear your hair slicked back or pulled back.  However, it is advisable to have your hair away from your face and not to have too full bangs.  Your face shape is adaptable to almost any hairstyle and that is why you should experiment and see which one you like the best.

Round faces

If you have found out that you have a round face, remember either to have short hair or chin length hair.  You should consider layering your hair right from the top and keep your hair close to your face.  Do not cut your hair very, very short and have a haircut that is rounded and ends at your chin.  This will exaggerate your face shape even more.  Straight bangs are not recommended, but if you love bangs, you should curl them and wear them to the side.  These types of hairstyles will make your face look longer, which is what you want to strive for.  Do not keep a lot of hair near the sides of your face and near your ears.  However, wispy curls curled towards your face is recommendable.  The point of all these hairstyles is to make your face look longer and less rounder and to accentuate your beautiful features.

Square Face

A square face has a very sharp angled jawline and has square shaped eyebrows.  In order to lessen these features, you should strive for hairstyles that emphasize the cheekbones.  Hairstyles worn in curls and waves will give shape to your square face.  The length of hair that is perfect for you is about 1-1/2 below the chin or to have shoulder length hair.  Your hair at these lengths will help to alleviate the squareness of your jaw line.  It is advisable not to let your hair hang and better to wear a side part than a center part.  Any freeflowing hairstyle for this shape will look wonderful.

Triangular shaped face
Since you have a triangular shaped face, you want to narrow the chin and widen the forehead.  Keep your hair away from your face and ear to widen your forehead.  In addition, you should angle your hair towards the chin.  You should keep your hair length at least up to your chin and cut your hair in lots of layers.  Also if you let your hair loose tuck it behind your ears so that it will help to highlight your eyes and increase the width around this area.  In addition, instead of parting your hair in the center, try parting it off-center and see the model look you have always loved!

Winter Care


Winter Care For All Types of Skin

The Winter Season which brings us the joy of fireside reading, snuggling close to the pillows wrapped from head to toe with a comfy quilt also hampers our body and hair with the cold winds. Overexposure to dry, cold wind damages the skin. As a result, the unprotected cells become inflamed, causing a tingling sensation on the skin, a problem that is particularly common among the elderly in cold season. However, a little care will keep the wintry troubles at bay. Dry skin suffers more than oily skin. However, the following measures are helpful for all types of skin.

Your skin texture depends not only on external treatments, but also on the intake. A proper nutritious intake helps in rejuvenating the skin from within. Water plays an important role in keeping your skin alive. A good amount of water helps in retaining the moisture of your skin as well keeping skin disorders at bay. Fruits and vegetables in your daily diet release a lot of water to your system. Primrose syrup and olive oil in your diet also aids in softening your skin.
      
Cold weather and cool winds aggravate dry skin condition; so adjust lifestyle and diet add warmth, lubrication, and moisture. Moisturizers and cold creams are a must in the winters Tone and moisture after each cleansing to preserve and replenish the moisture in your skin. Use a moisturizing night nourisher every evening. Apply a daytime moisturizer around your eyes and on dry-skin areas each morning.

Use the paste of ground green gram powder instead of soap to work your way to a soft and supple skin.
      
Pamper you skin with a little coconut oil before bath to heal dryness and chaps. Use a creamy soap that renders that extra suppleness to your skin.
      
Wait 30 minutes after bathing, or washing your face, before going out into frigid air. Splash your face with cool water when you come back inside. Extreme temperature changes can burst capillaries near the skin's surface.

Add a few drops of oil to the water that you are using to bath. This will help retain the moisture lost when bathing. Avoid using very hot water during winter as it can decrease the natural oils of your skin. Instead shorten your bath time
      
Although it doesn't taste very great flaxseed oil can moisturize your body from the inside. Since it is rich in vital fatty acids it can do a lot for your overall health. It is available in oil form as well as in capsule form.
      
The pre-bath warm oil self-massage, called abhyanga, is a must-do in winter. The massage not only keeps your skin silky smooth, it also tones the muscles, calms the nerves and aids circulation. Pat excess oil off with a paper towel before you step into the bath or shower. Use a nourishing oil such as almond or sesame oil for the massage.
      
Nourish you skin by adding a few drops of jojoba oil or sweet almond oil into your every day bath. It will do wonders for your skin.
      
Give your skin lipid support from within by including soaked and blanched almonds, soaked walnuts, whole milk, fresh cheese, and ghee (clarified butter) in your diet. Drink a cup of warm milk laced with 1/4 teaspoon ghee at bedtime for a daily boost of lipid support.

The Amla fruit (Indian Gooseberry) is the richest known natural source of vitamin C. Herbs such as Amla provide concentrated nourishment to the deeper layers of the skin. Take Amla, also known as Amalaki, on a regular basis to replenish skin from within.
      
Zucchini and other summer squashes, tender asparagus, tender greens, and carrots make excellent vegetable choices. Sweet juicy berries, cooked apples and sweet grapes are good fruit choices. Drink lots of warm water through the day.
      
Do not use harsh soaps to cleanse, as they will strip your skin of precious lipids. Use a non-soap cleanser or very mild soap to cleanse.
Before Going Outside in Winter

When the cold and pressure are extreme, the dead cells on the epidermis desquamate-they burst-leaving the living, young cells of the dermis layer exposed prematurely to the elements. As a result, the unprotected cells become inflamed, causing a tingling sensation on the skin.  However, a little care before you step out of your place will keep the wintry troubles at bay.
Apply a heavy layer of moisturizing broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 15 or higher to the face, hands, and any other skin that may be exposed. This will act as a barrier to help protect against the harsh elements and is especially important if you will be outside for any length of time. Sunscreen is important in winter as the sun's reflective powers are great year round - 17% on the sand and 80% on the snow. Today, several products are available that combine oily, moisturizing cream with sunscreen. If you are unsure of which product to use, ask a dermatologist.
 
Put gloves as it protects hands from the cold air and low humidity and avoid flare- ups. Make sure the gloves are made from material that does not irritate your skin. Some patients find that wearing a cotton mitten next to the skin and a woolen mitten over the cotton one, keeps hands warm and dry.
The most common triggers of the scratch/itch cycle are sweating and overheating. Wearing layers allows you to remove clothing as needed to prevent overheating. Be sure to wear loose-fitting cotton fabrics next to your skin.
Shed wet clothes and shoes immediately. These can irritate the skin and cause a flare-up.

Bath Tips

  • Do not expect miracles from pots and tubes. They are there to make you look more attractive, not to transform you completely.
  • How clean is clean enough? No skin can ever be 100 per cent clean, for it discharges sebum and sweat constantly. But yes, the superficial debris must be cleared away regularly, or pores will clog.
  • A few inches of fresh ginger will warm the body and soothe joints. Slice, simmer in boiling water for a good half hour. Strain and add to warm bath water.
  • For an aroma therapeutic bath, keep tub water tepid. Hot water will cause those volatile oils to evaporate far too quickly.
  • Do exercise in a warm bathtub. Experts say there is definite additional benefit from exercise done under warm water.
  • Dry armpits thoroughly before applying deodorant as wet skin gives rise to bacteria.
  • Mix two tablespoons of shampoo, one of oil (olive, for instance) and a few drops of your favorite perfume in a bottle. Shake vigorously and pour into your bath water. The shampoo will break the oil into millions of fine oil globules that cling to your zillions of open pores as you leave your bath. This is excellent for dry skin.
  • Oil your body before you go for your bath, as then scrubbing with soap will take away more dead skin than normally.
  • Scrub along with loofahs- they are dried seed pods of tropical gourds. They have an abrasive texture which scrubs very well.
