Everyday Beauty Tips

Each of us is unique in the way. Some of us prefer cold weather and some of us love warm weather all year round. I’m somewhat of an outdoors person and can’t wait for my next hiking trip. Others look forward to that 5 star hotel. Whatever the case, we have different likes, both inside and out. We all have different diets and live in various places where the climate is either nice or harmful to our skin.

But there are a few things that are good for all of us to use as beauty tips, which will enhance your routine and help you look fresher and more well-groomed. As an esthetician, I wax people throughout the day and see a lot of dry skin. Therefore, one thing I know for sure is there is a need to exfoliate your skin on a regular basis.

Unless there are underlying medical issues, exfoliation is one beauty tip that can get rid of dead skin cells that make your skin appear dry and dull. It doesn’t do much good to lather your skin with moisturizer when dead skin is present. That film left on your shower curtain is also attached to your skin unless you take measures to get rid of it.

Rest is another element that’s essential to glowing skin and bright eyes. That’s why it’s called beauty sleep. As you age, sleep is even more important to renew and rejuvenate. Your bodily cells renew themselves when you rest and help you look refreshed during the day. So don’t be shy to take that quick nap.

If you have trouble sleeping, try to relax before bedtime. Deep breathing exercises, limiting heavy meals and alcohol will help you get in the mood for a good night’s rest. Adding a warm bath with some added aromatherapy oil can add additional benefits.

Toxins contained in cigarettes not only affect your lungs, but they’re brutal to your skin. Alcohol causes drying of the skin. Both alcohol and cigarettes aren’t conducive to anyone’s beauty and can significantly harm your skin.

Hair is considered your crowning glory. You can boost the strength and beauty of your hair by eating protein-rich foods which increase the keratin (structural component) of your hair. I’ve recently been taking biotin and am looking for positive results soon. It’s also good for your nails. Including eggs, nuts, meat and seeds in your diet will provide natural protein that’s good for hair and nails.

Another beauty tip that all of us can benefit from is to groom your eyebrows. You can go from looking bushy to beautiful in just a few moments and bring focus to your eyes. Trimming and waxing brows will give you a finished look. You may need to look at the fashion magazines to determine your shape. Also, have your esthetician follow your natural brow line to enhance your look. If they have thinned out, add brow powder or pencil to give your face a fuller look.

All of us can benefit from protecting the skin from the elements. Sun, wind and cold can dry out the skin and make it itchy and pale. Always wear sunscreen and moisturizer and hydrate your skin and body by drinking plenty of water. Be sure to visit the rest of my website  to meet all your beauty needs.

 

 

Neisha’s Waxing 101

I provide several waxing services per day. I can perform anything from eyebrow maintenance to full leg waxing and everything else in between. By providing so many waxing services, I have seen pleasant experiences turn bad. However, not all is lost. Clients can receive the best waxing experience with proper timing and at home care.

Waxing hair removal uses a resin-based wax like product to remove the entire hair follicle from the root. Results can last up to six weeks. Generally, it is best to visit your salon every four weeks. This will keep the hair maintained and make the waxing experience tolerable.

The waxing experience is a warm wax mixture spread over hair in the direction of its growth and a paper or cloth strip is then placed on top of soft wax. Hard wax doesn’t require a strip because it cools solid enough, and becomes a strip in itself. Cold wax is usually already applied to pre-made strips, but a little friction over it helps generate some heat for wax to soften and better adhere to the hair.

 

Since getting hair pulled from its root is not the most pleasant experience, I tell my clients to breathe out as I pull. This eases the pain and allows the client to focus on breathing instead of the task at hand. I have had many say it does work. I can attest to it working because I do the same.

 

Once wax has slightly cooled or has grasped enough to the hair, it is then pulled off in the opposite direction of hair growth. The entire hair follicle should be removed from the root, if the waxing is done correctly. If all the hair is not removed, the waxer may go over the same area again. If that doesn’t work, she may then tweeze. However, to avoid or lessen these extra steps, it would be best for the client to exfoliate a few times a week to assist in removing dry skin. See your esthetician if other issues prevail.

 

Hard wax or Strip wax?

A comparison of waxes should be known. Both hard wax and strip wax are often used in waxing process. When it comes to pain and irritation, hard wax is more advantageous over strip wax. Hard wax is indeed less irritating to the skin and most people find it to be less painful. Often hard wax is used on the face, the underarms and strip wax for larger areas of the body.

Why is waxing better than shaving?

When you wax, the entire hair shaft is removed, root and all, rather than cutting it off at the surface of the skin like you do when you shave. This leaves your skin super smooth with no stubble. Waxing also lasts much longer than shaving, and the hair grows back thinner and finer with repeated treatments. Your esthetician would love to go over this in more detail with you.
