Skincare. Some say it’s all rubbish, others swear by its transcendental powers. The skincare industry is worth billions, its economy booming larger as the years go by. There are hundreds, even thousands, of skincare companies who all promise you that your skin will be improved when you use their products. But making your skincare routine work for you is far more than just buying the most expensive brand you can find, or following what your favourite Instagram influencer tells you.

The truth is, there’s no one thing that works for everyone! Skincare, like everything else, is about personal circumstances. Here are seven easy steps to ensuring your skincare works for you.

The winter is on the way. And since time immemorial, the winter has represented a symbolic death and rebirth. It’s no surprise that the coming of the new year in the Christian calendar roughly coincides with the winter solstice and pagan Yule traditions which tend to revolve around themes of rebirth and revivification. As such, many of us feel a natural yearning for change as the year draws to a close. While many of us manifest this in our New Year’s Resolutions, don’t wait for the year to change to start making small but meaningful positive changes in your life.

I let my Instagram followers choose my hair color. Given the option between red tips and hidden rainbow hair, the majority chose the later. I know what you’re thinking: this girl is crazy for letting strangers pick something as personal as her hair color. Honestly, I needed the change and I hadn’t done anything with my hair for over a year. I even asked for recommendations to local hair salons around Connecticut. Then, I picked a stylist at Sculptures Salon in Southington who was I was referred to via social media. Paula was amazing and helped make my vision come to life by mixing my Lisa Frank inspired colors.
It is never too late to be able to improve your smile just in time to enjoy the warm summer months. The good news is that you don’t often have to spend that much money to make a considerable difference to your smile, unless you want to, of course. There are treatments that can help that will include teeth whitening, dental bonding and even freshening up old and stained fillings. Even just visiting a hygienist will help make your smile a bit whiter. So where should you start? Here are a few things to be thinking about.
Regardless of whether it is a romantic kiss or one of greeting when you meet up with a good friend, no one wants to kiss lips that look chapped and sore. In fact, some people will shy away from your face in case there is some infection they do not want to catch.
Kissing can be fun, it can be sexy and for some people it is essential. You need to ensure that your lips are kissable this summer if you do not want people to pull away instead of giving you a smacker. Taking care of your lips will also make them more comfortable for you, as sore lips can be something you do not need to suffer.

Originally, I used to get red hair by bleaching it and then adding the color in after. Unfortunately, not only is this damaging to hair, but it tends to leave the texture dry and prone to breakage if the change is too drastic (dark to blonde). Luckily, my hair is naturally thick and there was no long-term damage. Overall, if your hair is finicky, some hairdressers would recommend going to salons with professional products rather than wasting time and money to fix a blotched boxed color job.
However, I prefer coloring my hair at home, and have had no major issues. Therefore, I’ve used Ion permanent dye in ‘Black Cherry‘ and have been using lower developer strengths for each touch-up. Higher developers lift more and usually provide lighter colors. I prefer a darker shade of purplish red, but it also depends on your own preference.
I used a 10v developer and this is how it turned out:
As a result, my roots are well hidden now and just as a disclaimer, red is the hardest color to sustain. In other words, it fades quickly and I can guarantee that this time next month it will be a completely different shade. As of writing this, Sally’s beauty stores only has limited shampoos for red hair, but I’d recommend ordering Tressa Watercolors online for a shampoo that revives red shades after every wash.
