We chose flora’s to represent (Margaretz Magik Natural Hair & Skin)

a plant of the figwort family, bearing spikes of brightly colored two-lobed flowers that gape like a mouth when a bee lands on the curved lip.

Because of this the lotus flower has come to be associated with purity and beauty in the religions of Buddhism and Hinduism respectively; the ancient Egyptians scholars observed that in the night-time the lotus closed its flowers and sank into the water, and came up with a different association with the flower related to rebirth and the Sun; in actual fact the Lotus slowly emerges from a pond over a three day period and then blooms in the morning until mid-afternoon.

Maybelline Mega Plush Mascara

Price: $6.29 on Target.com Packaging (brush wand): 3 out of 5 Overall: 3 out of 5

What It Claims: “Innovative formula and precision brush design lengthen and separate each lash for high-definition, all-day wear. Wheat protein strengthens and defines without clumping or flaking. Vitamin E conditions and nourishes for soft, flexible lashes. Panthenol prevents your lashes from becoming dry and brittle.” (source)

The Truth: Divaz, I think I like many of the other Volum’ Express mascaras better.

What I Loved About It: I can see how many will really like the lightweight formula. It’s perfect for those with sensitive eyes.

What I Didn’t Like: The flexible wand just isn’t cutting it, bro.

Overall: If I didn’t have a blog that was based on mascara I would have stopped reviewing Maybelline mascaras a long time ago. Why? Because The Urban Decay and Lancome Définicils Waterproof are two of my favorite mascaras EVER. And I think I’ve had enough mascaras from the Volum’ Express line. I really think Maybelline should kepp up the good work, until the right mascara comes alone. BUT at least this mascara got some credit. According to Maybelline, this is the first ‘gel mousse’ mascara to hit the market. At first I was like “okay, Maybelline! COVERGIRL NatureLuxe was first!” But after further research, I’ve discovered that COVERGIRL calls NatureLuxe a ‘mousse’ mascara. Not gel mousse.

I’ll go ahead and say it, I’m not a fan of this formula. And not because it isn’t effective but because it’s almost impossible to get insanely volumized lashes from these mousse-y formulas. And I get it: not everyone needs insanely volumized lashes, but divaz I do. Any mascaras that give me less than performance make me frustrated. True story.

The good news… despite this mascara not being ideal for me and my needs, it works well if you’re a fan of separation and soft lashes.

Despite it not being one of my favorite, there are several great things about this kind of formula. The consistency looks a lot like most mascara formulas so it’s likely that you won’t notice any difference until you begin applying it to your lashes. For one, the consistency is nice. It isn’t goopy, super thick or watery. It’s nice and makes applying to the lashes easy. I had a hard time noticing much of anything after just one coat. It took three coats for me to really see a difference in my lashes. That’s the thing about this gel mousse formula; because it isn’t heavy, you may find yourself staring in mirror wondering where the mascara you just applied went. It’s there! It’s just soft and faint. This kind of mascara is a makeup minimalist’s best friend. I also found it to be an ideal mascara for those who have sensitive and watery eyes. Because the formula is so lightweight, I didn’t have to worry about any flaking. Which is a huge plus. I could rub my eyes and not have to worry about any mascara particles droppin’ in ‘em.

I typically wear 2 coats of mascara with this one but pushed it to the limit with 3 just to see where I could take it. It thickens up a bit but still not where I’d want it to be.

It’s not a bad mascara!

Skin Secret

Detoxing your body with juices and clean eating is a common activity that many of us partake in towards the end of winter in high hopes of shedding the extra holiday weight. Some of us, however, forget that detoxing your skin is just as important. Thanks to products including the ingredient charcoal, ridding your skin of its impurities is a much easier and happier process than cleansing our bodies of toxins.

Basically, charcoal is your skin’s saving grace. Not only does it draw out any dirt and oil within the skin, but it also leaves your skin looking and feeling clear and radiant. Click through the slideshow above to check out a few of our favorite charcoal-filled products that leave our skin glowing from the inside out.

Steps to smoother skin

    1. Exfoliate. If you really want smooth skin, get rid of the dead, flaky skin on the surface. …
    2. Hydrate. There are a million reasons you should reach for that glass of water, and smoother skin is one. …
    3. Shave. One of the easiest ways to get smooth skin is to get rid of the hair on its surface.

  1. Do you think perfectly smooth skin is something you’ll never have? Think again! Spend some time taking care of your skin, and you’ll end up with smooth, gorgeous skin that you can’t wait to show off! These 12 steps are a great way to get started.
  2. Less is more

    According to Dr. Jessica Krant, a board-certified dermatologist and founder of Art of Dermatology on 5th Avenue, as well as assistant clinical professor of dermatology at SUNY Downstate Medical Center in New York City, the first step to smoother skin is to stop doing everything you’re doing now.

    “Remember that sometimes less is more. With all the constant marketing of anti-aging products and systems now, sometimes we think the more we do, the younger we’ll get. Sadly, sometimes that can work against you. Too many anti-aging products or procedures can actually make the skin more irritated, red, and flaky and produce the appearance of more fine lines due to deep dryness and microscopic swelling. So first, stop everything.”

  3. Wash less

    You may think the key to smooth skin is a super clean face, but that’s not true. In fact, too much washing will probably do more damage than good.

    “It’s important to gently remove makeup and actual dirt from the skin, but it’s a bit of a myth that we have to scrub ourselves squeaky clean two or three times daily,” said Krant. “Sometimes overwashing can produce the same overdryness and irritation that anti-aging products can create. When we wash too much and strip away the skin’s natural, healthy, moisturizing oils, we create redness and flakiness, and the skin actually gets a counterproductive signal to start producing more oil to keep itself protected. This is how we can end up both dry and oily at the same time. Reduce the amount of cleansing and let the skin relax.”

  4. Don’t squeeze!

    We know it’s tempting to squeeze and pick at any zits that happen to show up on your face, but don’t.

    “Manage acne gently, with help from your dermatologist, not your fingertips,” said Krant. “Anything you pick and and try to solve yourself will only last much longer and risk being permanently scarred. The right dermatologist can help you with an easy, ongoing preventive regimen that will help more.”

  5. Exfoliate

    If you really want smooth skin, get rid of the dead, flaky skin on the surface.

    “It’s a myth that exfoliation can dry or thin the skin,” says healthy skin care expert and Skin Authority CEO Celeste Hilling. “Regular exfoliation speeds up the cell turnover process, allowing the body to produce moisture-bearing properties like hyaluronic acid. Exfoliation also helps to plump the skin by churning up elastin and collagen production.”

    Hilling recommends using a natural resurfacing agent such as glycolic acid to gently dissolve dead surface skin cells so they can be replaced with new, plump ones.

    Too much exfoliation can be overkill, though. Just once a week is enough.

  6. Clean your brushes

    How often do you clean your makeup brushes? Probably not often enough. Dirt, grime and oils left in the brushes can cause breakouts, leaving your skin far from smooth. Fortunately, it’s easy enough to clean them yourself using a simple bar of soap.

    Note: Steer away from scented body soaps and go for a natural soap like those offered by South of France Natural Body Care to remove the gunk without leaving anything behind. They’ve got all the steps for proper brush cleaning laid out on their blog, The Soap Dish.
  7. Eat right

    The food we put into our bodies affects how we look in more ways than our belt size. According to Dr. Michelle Yagoda, NYC facial plastic surgeon, aesthetic integrative beauty expert and co-creator of BeautyScoop, “Foods rich in lean proteins and omega-3 fatty acids are especially effective at delivering smoother skin. They aid the skin in retaining moisture and fortify the skin’s natural moisture barrier.”

    Yagoda says a diet with ample beauty super foods can enhance skin texture, hydration, firmness and smoothness. She suggests a diet of foods rich in…

    1. Lean protein (salmon, tofu, soy, sardines)
    2. Omega-3 fatty acids (almonds, salmon, sardines, walnuts, flax seed)
    3. Antioxidants for rapid skin repair like vitamins A, C and E (carrots, sweet potatoes, butternut squash, berries)
    4. Minerals like magnesium and zinc, which facilitate hyaluronic acid production to provide unsurpassed skin hydration (soy, kale, carrots, pumpkin seeds, whole grains)

    Hydrate

    There are a million reasons you should reach for that glass of water, and smoother skin is one.

    “To have smooth, soft skin, it’s really important to drink enough water or other nondiuretic fluids during the day. When you are well hydrated, skin is smoother and more elastic,” said Stephanie White, founder and president of Become International.

    Use sunblock

    We all know it’s important to use sunblock for health reasons, but it’ll go a long way toward keeping your skin smooth, too.

    “Use sunblock religiously,” said White. “Sun damage creates wrinkles and coarsens the skin. Find a sunblock you like that is made for the face, preferably with natural ingredients like titanium dioxide and zinc oxide.”

    Moisturize

    We can’t say this enough: Moisturize, moisturize, moisturize. Dr. Joshua Zeichner, director of cosmetic and clinical research for the Department of Dermatology at Mt. Sinai Medical Center, agrees.

    “Moisturize twice daily,” he said. “It will improve skin hydration and seal in cracks between dry cells on the surface of the skin.”

    Go natural

    The solution to smoother skin isn’t always to be found on a drugstore shelf. Sometimes, the simplest, most natural products have the power to make you glow. Alexis Wolfer, founding editor in chief of TheBeautyBean.com, has some suggestions for natural ways to get smoother skin.

    “Make a yogurt mask,” she suggests. “Apply a thin layer of full-fat Greek yogurt to your face and let it dry for about 20 minutes before rinsing with warm water. The lactic acid helps break down dead skin cells while the fat deeply moisturizes.”

    She also recommends mixing a drop or two of honey in with your night cream each evening before application.

    “Honey acts as a humectant, bringing the hydrating benefits of your night cream deeper into the skin.”

    Shave

    One of the easiest ways to get smooth skin is to get rid of the hair on its surface. Get smooth skin on your legs, armpits and anywhere else hair grows with a quick shave. For the best results, use a razor meant to hydrate as it shaves, like Schick Hydro 5 Disposables.

    Take extra care at night

    Your skin needs extra care at night, so don’t use your daytime moisturizer before you go to bed. According to Dr. Joshua Zeichner, you should look for a moisturizer that includes a retinoid.

    “It stimulates collagen growth and normalizes skin cell turnover,” he said.

7 Tips Coloring Gray Hair

 

Whether you’re trying to cover up grey roots, all-grey hair or salt and pepper colored hair, trying to hide your grey can be very challenging. Many women and men think they only have the option of using an at-home all-over color dye from brands like Clairol, but the truth is there are several options for trying to cover gray hair.

How to Best Color, Style & Care for Your Silver Mane

 

 

 

Use Highlights To Hide Gray Hair:Many people don’t realize they can use highlights to help hide their gray or silver hair. Because gray hair often has an ash tone to it, some people can get heavy highlights and the gray will blend in effortlessly. Those who have premature gray hairs popping up often choosing this option, as it allows them to look youthful while covering the gray patches. Remember, often premature gray hair is a genetic issue, not just an issue for old people! Highlights often allow you to go longer in between your regrowth touchups, as well.

  • Use Low Lights to Cover Gray:While low lights aren’t nearly as commonly used or popular as highlights, they work brilliantly to cover up small areas of gray hair. Low lights are pretty much reverse highlights, where the procedure is the same but the color tint used is darker than your natural hair color. This allows you to get rid of your gray, without having to dye all of your hair and is also great for long or short hair.
  • All Over Dying Products for All Over Gray Coverage:If you have white hair all over your head or have so much you’d rather just dye all of it, choosing an all-over dying product might be best. Most often, it’s best to look for permanent (not temporary) dye, to ensure your gray gets maximum coverage results. If you’re experiencing any type of hair loss, going darker with an all-over dye can also often give the illusion of having thicker hair.
  • Tinted Shampoos for Small Areas of Gray:If you’re dealing with smaller areas of gray hair, you might be able to use tinted shampoos to help you cover your gray. These shampoos are only temporary coloring agents, but if you use them on a daily basis you likely won’t have to worry about maintaining your color. It will be a part of your everyday routine!
  • Try a Different Part in Between Dye Jobs:Use your hairline to your advantage! If your gray hairs are showing up mostly in your usual hair part, consider putting a zig zag part in your hair until you can get them touched up. This confuses the eye and can often camouflage your grays.
  • Accessorize that Silver Hair:Think about hair accessories. If even creating a new part doesn’t really hide your grays, think about wearing an adorable hat or hair scarf for the day. This is not a long term option, but it can help you out when you’re in a pinch!
  • Change Your Products:Aging doesn’t only wreck havoc on your body, but it can also cause changes in your hair. It’s important to reassess your hair as you age, which can mean you might need to change your hair products to match your changing hair characteristics. For instance, your hair may become more brittle, requiring you to use a more conditioning shampoo than you needed in the past. To get the best results with your hair, you’ll need to constantly be aware of its condition.

Sometimes you don’t have time to  cover your gray roots, but you might need a quick trick to disguise them for  the moment. If you want to style your hair to cover gray hairs quickly, use  these helpful tips!

The Blue Zone: People Who’ve Lived The Longest

marybelleaston

Mary Bell Easton lived to be 101 years of age

Extreme longevity has always been a quirky thing, happening in isolated mountain villages few people visit. Until recent years, no one asked this question: Could we create those same conditions in the United States so that most people would celebrate their 100th birthday—healthy, happy, and without the aches and pains we usually associate with aging?

Absolutely, says Dan Buettner, author of The Blue Zones: 9 Power Lessons for Living Longer from the People Who’ve Lived the Longest, the second edition to be released in November. Not only is extreme longevity possible here, it’s already being achieved in communities across the U.S.—and, in a few instances, Blue Zones principals have been adopted by individual companies, aiming to become Blue Zones Certified Workplaces.

What Are Blue Zones?

Blue Zones are places where people live longer and healthier than anywhere else on the planet, passing their centennial years at a rate 10 times greater than most Americans. For the first edition of his book, Buettner led a team of National Geographic researchers in studying a collection of “longevity hot spots” across the globe. Their work was prompted by a 1999 Danish study of nearly 4,000 twins older than age 75; scientists found that only 25 percent of their hospitalizations were caused by genetic factors and that most of their health profiles were “most likely due to nonfamilial environment.”

So Buettner’s team set out to study long-living peoples, including those in Nicoya, Costa Rica, where residents boast the lowest middle-age mortality on earth; Sardinia, Italy, where men generally outlive women; and Loma Linda, California, where a community of Seventh-Day Adventists enjoy a life expectancy nine to 11 years longer than the average American. Much of the book’s updating focuses on Ikaria, Greece, the most recently discovered and, Buettner says, the“most extraordinary” Blue Zone.

10 Super Foods for Optimal Health

The Island Where People Forget to Die

“In America, once we hit 85, there’s about a 50 percent chance you’ll suffer from dementia,”Buettner says. “In Ikaria, the rate is about one-fourth ours. They stay sharp to the end.” But it’s not only their mental health that remains intact; four times as many Ikarian men and two-and-a-half times as many women, reach the age of 90, compared to Americans. What’s more, they stay healthier along the way, living eight to 10 years longer before contracting cancers and heart disease.

And they do it with a smile, Buettner writes in a recent article in The New York Times Magazine. In a survey of Ikarian men aged 65 to 100, some 80 percent had sex regularly—and, they reported, they did the deed with “good duration” and “achievement.” The islanders’ secret, Buettner believes, is a “gold standard” variant of the Mediterranean diet, including diuretic teas—such as rosemary, sage, and dandelion—that help to lower blood pressure and inflammation, plenty of indigenous honey instead of refined sugar, bread made of stone-ground wheat, and two to four glasses of wine each day.

Blue Zones in the United States?

Since his longevity studies began, one of Buettner’s aims has been to adapt the same principals into “Blue Zones Projects” in the U.S. The first city to enact a Blue Zones plan for initiating healthy environmental, social, and policy changes was Albert Lea, Minnesota. They called their effort the “Vitality Project,” and the results were remarkable. Life expectancy of participants increased by 3.1 years, and their healthcare costs were slashed by nearly half.

Last May, Governor Terry Branstad announced that Iowawould launch the first Healthiest State Initiative, with the towns of Cedar Falls, Mason City, Spencer and Waterloo selected as the state’s first Blue Zones Project Demonstration Sites, with six additional communities to join in early 2013.

9 Secrets of Longevity

As Buettner and his team studied the Blue Zones, they identified nine common traits shared by those communities where people live longer. He was surprised that it wasn’t only food and lifestyle, but also creating a most beneficial environment. Here’s a look at these longevity-boosting traits, known as the “Power of 9.:

  • Move naturally.      “Do your own house and yard     work, go up and down your stairs with your laundry, knead your own dough,”     Buettner advises. “Incorporate more movement every hour.”
  • Know your     purpose. “Take time to recognize your values, strengths, talents,     passions and gifts,” Buettner says. Reflect, and work on yourself.
  • Down shift.     Relieve chronic stress by finding time each day to nap, meditate or pray.
  • The 80% rule.     Cut 20 percent of your daily calories with proven healthy practices: eat a     big breakfast, dine with your family, and begin each meal by expressing     appreciation.
  • Plant slant.     Eat mostly plant-based foods, and small portions of meat no more than     twice a week.
  • Wine at 5.     Drinkers live longer than non-drinkers. This longevity tip had one     exception: those in the Loma Linda Blue Zone were Seventh Day Adventists,     who abstain from alcohol.
  • Family first.     Living in a loving, thriving family can add up to six years to your life.     Work on a positive, committed relationship and stay close to your aging     parents and grandparents.
  • Belong.“Those with the most social connectedness tend to live longer,” Buettner     says. Be part of a group of healthy-minded, supportive people.
  • Right tribe.     Good friends have a positive effect on your longevity. Support them and     adopt healthy behaviors together.

Best Ways to Exfoliate Your Face

ahairlong

Having clear, hydrated, glowing skin is a common goal among many women. However, skin can be quite delicate and suffer from many problems like dry or oily textures, skin conditions or acne breakouts. We have added several beauty tip articles on proper skin care and ways to improve the overall appearance of your skin. We have touched on many skin care products, care routines and procedures that we hope will help.

If  you want your skin to look brighter and better, exfoliation can certainly help!  While most people understand exfoliating treatment processes and a routine skin  care regimen including exfoliation can buff your dead skin cells off and give  you silky results, very few people know how to properly do it. Exfoliation is  often something people think they can only get at a dermatologist’s office or  in a spa. However, you can get similar results right in your own home, every  week. All you need to do is know which products to use and what techniques work  best. Use these helpful tips to help you learn how to use the best technique,  reduce irritation and get smooth results.

Try  Exfoliating Gloves:    The first step to getting great exfoliation results is to learn how to do it. To get the best results and to softly remove dead skin cells, don’t use a hard sponge to exfoliate. A sponge can create breeding ground for bacteria, because they tend to stay damp. You can get great results for       dead skin removal by using exfoliating gloves. Simply lather a cleanser on       them and lightly scrub your skin. Just be sure to rinse the gloves well after each use and let them air dry. Some people prefer to use the most costly methods, like microdermabrasion, but you can get great results using these techniques and a good cleansing product.

  • Don’t’  Scrub Everyday if Skin is Irritated:Remember, you should only be exfoliating two to three times a week. When you exfoliate more than this, you can end up with irritated skin. Most  people are terrified of exfoliating because they do it too often, use harsh products during the process or just don’t know what technique to use. To avoid getting bad results, you can also choose to use a soft rag when exfoliating as well, instead of a hard sponge. Of course, if your climate is warmer and you frequently experience more oily skin issues and oil production or perspiration, you’ll have more dead skin cells and may need to exfoliate more often.
  • Use Specialize Facial Scrubs Only:Be sure to use exfoliate skin products that are specifically designed to be used on the facial areas. If you’ve struggled with irritation after using an exfoliating product on your face, it may be because you’re using a body exfoliant cream instead of a cream designed specifically for the sensitive areas of the face. If you’re confused about which products will work best for you, simply visit your nearest Clinique or Sephora counter for assistance.
  •  Don’t forget to moisturize!Exfoliation can leave your skin extremely smooth and can even give you a  healthy glow. To ensure you get the silky results you desire, always use  moisturizer several times a day if you exfoliate regularly. When you exfoliate,  the dead skin cells are indeed removed. However, your skin can begin to dry out  and get flaky if you don’t keep moisturizer on it at all times and can even  bring on more wrinkles. When you do so, exfoliating can make your skin brighter  and your skin tone will be more even. It can also lead to smaller pores and  reduce the occurrence of pimples.

Steps To Applying Foundation Flawless

Creating a flawless foundation may appear difficult especially after several attempts that will end up with blotches, patches and caking. When you look at magazines, you will see cover girls with full coverage and flawless foundation—no no caking, streaks, or patches. The truth is, there are tips that you can follow to achieve a flawless foundation application:

ashun111

Wash your face.
It is always important to have a clean face before applying foundation. Using a good facial cleanser, gently cleanse your face. Continue to work on a lather. Remember to wash and not rub. Rinse your face thoroughly with lukewarm water.

Apply a toner.
Apply a facial toner after washing your face. It removes the excess dirt from your skin. It also removes the residues from your facial cleanser. It not only freshens up your skin but also balances you skin pH after washing. It is best to chill the toner before use to help close your pores.

Apply moisturizer.
Facial moisturizers help solve issues such as drying, oiliness, and aging of the skin. Most of the moisturizers out in the market contain organic ingredients that help keep the skin healthy-looking. If you have sensitive skin, it is best to choose a moisturizer that has a label saying “non-comedogenic” and “fragrance-free”. For the blemish-prone skin, experts recommend the use of tinted moisturizer. This type helps even out the skin tone and discretely covers the blemishes of the skin. Apply a hefty amount of moisturizer. This is good for the skin since it re-hydrates the face and brings back the lost moisture due to facial cleansing and chemical exposure. Be sure to apply the moisturizer all over the face and the neck. Let it stand for about ten minutes before proceeding to the next step.

Apply primer.
Apply a primer over your face. This serves as a makeup base for smoother application of make up. Primer can help prolong your makeup application. The advanced formulation of makeup primers helps treat, protect and smooth the skin. It also helps in fighting off the appearance of wrinkles caused by sun exposure and aging. Best buys are those that contain botanical extracts that help diminish redness and blemishes. Some primers also contain sunscreen protection to protect the skin from the harmful UV rays emitted by the sun.

Choose a foundation.
Select a foundation that is suited to your skin tone. Try on at least three different tones on the back of your hand to determine the best foundation that suits your skin. Apply a small streak from the lower cheek to the upper cheek evenly using a dabbing motion.

Foundation application.
After choosing the best foundation tone, you can now proceed to coverage. Apply a quarter cent-amount of foundation at the back of your hand. Dip a damp makeup sponge or foundation brush into the foundation. Make sure to keep both sides coated. Apply the makeup in dots over your forehead, cheeks, chin and neck. Blend in an outward motion working toward the hairline and jaw line. Use gentle outward strokes. Finish off by brushing some loose powder over the face and neck.

For a slightly sun-kissed look, apply a hint of bronzer over the cheeks, chin and forehead. Applying your makeup foundation using these methods could help you achieve a flawless look.

Snail Facials The Latest Rage Since Fish Pedicures

A new facial treatment in Tokyo involves slimy snails crawling all over your face. The slimy mucus left behind the snails supposedly provides beneficial properties to the skin, easing inflammation and providing moisture. The “Celebrity Escargot Course” treatment is being offered by Tokyo’s Clinical Salon, and also involves a facial massage, as seen on the show Tuesday, July 16. It’s the oddest skin treatment since fish pedicures were all the rage, wherein small fish chewed off the soft decaying skin on customers’ feet.

Supposedly the slow-moving slugs provide beneficial properties to the skin, easing inflammation and also providing moisture. The slime emitted from the snails is said to contain proteins, antioxidants and hyaluronic acid – which aid in skin in regeneration and exfoliation.

“I’d be surprised if this has any lasting effect on skin health,” Dr. William Stebbins, a dermatology professor at Vanderbilt University Medical Center told ABC News.

Joshua Zeichner, director of cosmetics and clinical research in dermatology at New York’s Mount Sinai Hospital, warns that more testing needs to be done not only to see if the facials are effective, but whether they’re safe as well.
