Taking it Back To Twiggy!

Twiggy

 

Designers are paying tribute to the 1960’s with their 60’s inspired pieces in their spring 2013 collection.   The classic dress with A-line precision, the shift dress, mini-skirts,  stripes and a little something sheer are all featured with today’s trends in mind.  Funny how some of 1960’s international model Twiggy’s looks are showing up in our closet today.

Lighten Up !

Uneven skin tone or hyperpigmentation got you down?  Hyperpigmentation is a condition in which areas of the skin become darker in color than the normal surrounding skin. This darkening occurs when an excess of melanin, the brown pigment that produces normal skin color, forms deposits in the skin.  Hyperpigmentation can be caused by sun damage, acne, inflammation and other skin injuries.   Hyperpigmentation can affect any race or skin type, but individuals with skin of color have a higher risk of developing it and a more prolonged recovery period simply because they have more pigment-producing cells.  The first line of defense against any type of hyperpigmentation is sunblock (15 spf or higher) .  Avoid exposing your skin to direct sunlight. Use sunscreen heavily to protect your skin and help retain its tone.  Here are five at home remedies to brighten, lighten and relieve uneven skin tones:

 

1.  Cut a lemon in half and rub it onto the area of your you wish to lighten.  Leave it on for 10-15 minutes.  Rinse the area with lukewarm water

 

2.  Lemon juice with a bit of yogurt once a day is an excellent mild bleach.  Rinse area with lukewarm water.

 

3.  Pour some Milk into a bowl, saturate a cotton round or a wash cloth and rub it generously around your face.  Milk is a natural skin bleacher.  Rinse area with lukewarm water.

 

4.  Cut the papaya into small chunks and blend.  Apply the papaya pulp to face and let it sit for 15 to 20 minutes.  Rinse off  with lukewarm water.

5.  Mix 2 tbsp of flour in a bowl and add a pinch of turmeric.  Add a few drops of milk  to form a paste. Apply as a mask.  Rinse off with lukewarm water.
Caution:  Do not expect instant results.  Whenever skin-lightening products are being used they should be  accompanied by proper use of a full-spectrum sun sunblock.

Stilettos! What’s a Girl To Do?

 

 Stilettos, what’s a girl to do?   Are they bad for your feet?

 

For most women, wearing stilettos tends to boost our confidence, helping us look and feel sexy.  By wearing high heels, you are forced to alter your posture. By doing this, your curves are emphasized.  High heels give a stylish look to the overall physical appearance of women.  Believe it or not there are some health benefits to wearing high heels such as increasing muscle use and giving women a better workout than walking in flats.  But there can be a downside to wearing high heels.   While wearing heels, our weight is redistributed, causing all our weight to be shifted on to the balls of our feet sometimes causing discomfort.  Some women find it difficult to walk in high heels, subjecting themselves to be of higher risk of a sprained ankle.   If this is the case, look for a thicker heel.  Try the shoes on and walk on more than one surface(ex. hardwood & carpet etc.)  Remember, insert’s are your friend…..try cushioned inserts where you need them.  Be sure to choose your shoes wisely. If you are not sure how long you are going to be on your feet, be wise, bring a pair of fold-able flats, switch them out when necessary!

Don't Bypass The Eyelash

Are your eyelashes an after thought?  I bet you didn’t know that nourishing your lashes can be simple.  To keep your lashes from becoming brittle, gently dab a bit of eye cream on your lashes before bed to keep them soft and supple.  For those who prefer the all natural way, apply olive oil or vitamin E to eyelashes and wash it off in the morning.  These few old tricks will strengthen and encourage your lashes to grow.  Who doesn’t love long full lashes?
