Semi Permanent MakeUp Treatment

Some of the benefits of semi-permanent makeup:

  • It saves time for busy mothers and professional women.
  • Helps to improve the look of sparse, fair-haired or poorly shaped eyebrows.
  • Stays on the face and looking good at the gym or the swimming pool.
  • Helps those suffering with alopecia, or hair loss through medical problems.
  • Gives you back lost shape and definition.
  • It can help to achieve symmetrical eyebrows.
  • It’s ideal for those who are sensitive to make-up.
  • People who suffer from poor eyesight or shaky hands.
  • Ladies with unsymmetrical or uneven features.
  • Treatment is skilfully designed and tailored to suit each persons needs.

Semi-permanent make-up is safe and hygienic. Topical anaesthetic cream gets applied to deal with any minor discomfort, and then it’s applied quickly and easily and is almost pain-free. For the first few days mild redness and swelling may occur, but you can go back to normal everyday activity directly after the treatment.

After treatment

It’s very important not to touch or pick the treated area, as even clean hands can introduce dirt and germs onto the skin which can mean infection, and might create scar tissue. If you pick at the scabs it will take away the colour from the treated area, leaving a patchy final result. We can correct any patchy areas at a later appointment, however, if the scab gets picked and comes off too soon it will expose the skin and infection could occur. It’s also advisable to keep the area completely dry for a couple of days after your treatment.

Bronze Your Face

• Choosing the Products:

Since the bronzing product has to be something that you can comfortably apply and carry, you need to test first that whether if you are comfortable with the powder one or the liquid one. If you are contented with the powder bronzer, then you can opt for the bareMinerals Bronzer – The Skinny Dip. Make sure to purchase the one that is two tones darker than your skin tone.

• The Blending:

A good angled brush allows you to blend all of the product onto your skin flawlessly. However, you should know that once you get the product onto the brush, make certain to tap it onto the powder palette to remove the excess. After applying it onto the cheekbones, you have to blend it upwards with a Kabuki brush or any other blending brush. Do not leave any harsh lines during the blending process so that the bronzing looks natural.

• The Right Method:

The chiseled look it gives your face solely depends on how you blend the product. Make sure to put it only onto the line that starting from the cheekbone from the upper side of your ear till the outer corner of your mouth. Similarly, form a shade on your forehead, by blending it into your hairline so that your forehead seems smaller, and it allows you to highlight the center of the head. Use very light strokes when you are forming a structure of the product so that you can merge it flawlessly later with a flat-topped brush.

Effects from Pollution for Looks

Pollution settles on the skin almost the same way it settles on the windshield of a car. Some fairly potent acids in the atmosphere of large cities may act like a chemical peel on skin, slowly dissolving and breaking down the stratum corneum, or outermost layer. As a result, this important layer is less able to protect against harmful bacteria and other environmental culprits and could make skin and body more vulnerable to irritants and infections.

“City pollution is a problem,” agrees Jerome Z. Litt, assistant clinical professor of dermatology at Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine. “It gets on exposed skin and hair and greases them up, creating an excessive amount of oil that can cause blemishes and make hair limp.”

Adds Paul Lazar, M.D., professor of clinical dermatology at Northwestern University School of Medicine, “What may happen is that air pollution in major cities may create a ‘mini-greenhouse effect’, trapping warm air and contributing to increased heat and humidity. The result is that you perspire more and end up with more oil and dirt on the skin’s surface.”

He adds, “The only pollution I know of that’s toxic to looks involves serious chemical leaks, like dioxin, which can cause acne if it gets on skin. But this could only come from, say, the derailing of a train with chemical taker cars. You don’t have to worry about dioxin while walking down a city street.”

Experts are still examining the effects of environmental nasties such as exhaust-produced sulfurous acid on skin and hair, but most scientists concur: Pollution, no matter what its source, puts more dirt into the atmosphere. And dirt can wreak havoc with your looks.

The solutions, says Robert M. Bernstein, associate professor in clinical dermatology, Columbia University, are simple:

Wash your face often, using a soap or cleanser that’s suited to you skin type.

Avoid alcohol-based products that interfere with the protective stratum corneum.

Don’t clog pores with oily products.

And have bumps and blackheads treated by a dermatologist.

In some instances, acne is triggered by touching your hands to your face during a hectic workday, or keeping cosmetics on for long stretches without giving skin a breather.

Last but not least, don’t overlook the protective power of sunscreen. Although your darker pigmentation gives you some extra protection against the skin cancer-causing, ultra-violet rays of the sun, the fact is that unremitting pollution is depleting the protective ozone layer of the atmosphere, thus letting more and more ultra-violet rays penetrate.

According to Joseph P. Bark, chairman of dermatology at St. Joseph’s Hospital in Kentucky, Miami Taxi-drivers often develop skin cancer on their left arms, as a result of driving with that arm leaning out of the rolled-down window. “The same risk is probably true for drivers in any potent-sun region,” says Bark.

CRIMES AGAINST HAIR

Even hair can’t escape pollution fall-out. Urban life makes hair dirtier and greasier, requiring more frequent cleansings; in fact, frequent washing should be the norm in heavily-polluted areas.

Also helpful: alcohol-free styling lotions that act as a buffer between hair and pollutants in the air.

VISIONARY TACTICS

Eyes are especially vulnerable to pollution, which can cause redness, itchiness and discomfort. “Particles of sulfurous acid from exhausts and other common city pollutants dissolve in the tear film,” explains Richard Koplin, director of the eye trauma center at the New York Eye and Ear Infirmary. People with an existing ocular problem or who wear contact lenses are even more prone to irritation since their eyes are usually more sensitive.

Pollution is hard on anyone who’s getting older, but particularly on women. As estrogen diminishes, so, too, does the eye’s natural tear film, making it easier for toxic materials to accumulate. Contact-lens wearers should try to use their lenses for shorter periods of time to prevent irritation.

Hairstyles For Long Faces

Side bangs – A side bang is the best option for girls who want to hide their large forehead, and pointy chin. Additionally, you should try to make the side bangs heavy.

Loose and long – Women with long faces have a tendency to cut their long hair short, as they believe it can highlight their pointed chin. However, if you can keep the length long with soft waves, it can be quite appealing.

Layered haircut Many people get confused between a long and oval face shape. The primary difference between both is the face length, and the pointed chin. When you want to hide the pointed chin, layered haircut is ideal for you. This is because the layers start from the chin, which avoids elongating a long face even more.

Pixie haircut – Oval faces are considered the best because every hairstyle looks perfect on them. You should try your haircut in such a way that the hair length is no longer than your ear. As the length of the bangs cut the forehead diagonally, it helps you to cover your large forehead.

Center part hairstyle – When your hair length is medium or short, it should have a wow factor. You can use a curling iron to create wavy curls on either side. Additionally, you can achieve perfection by teasing the hair.

Over-the-shoulder braid – This hairstyle shifts the focus from the length of your face to give it a more symmetrical appearance. You can either braid the hair along the hairline, or braid on the side you flip your bang. Burgundy or any other highlights are sure to add more depth, and texture to your look.
