Hacks Celebrities Swear By for Preventing Wrinkles

Jaziha Syed

The best things in life really are free, even when it comes to your beauty routine. But taking care of your skin can be a big investment, so we’re always down for tricks that don’t take a big bite out of our paychecks. Whether we want to or not, everyone ages. It’s part of our life. And with aging, as many of you probably know, come wrinkles. Some may call it to age gracefully but on the other hand, they tell a tale of burdens. Whatever your feelings are on wrinkles,  all of us will have them.

We love it when celebs tell us the secret behind their Hollywood glow isn’t a $200 miracle product but a weird AF DIY hack. Stars swear by these tips, from the game-changing trick you can do in your sleep to the drugstore lip balm with potent anti-aging properties. If you’re fine with your wrinkles, that’s cool. But if you are not these tips are definitely for you!

Kylie Jenner

Kylie Jenner revealed on her app and website that she uses a brush to apply her moisturizer. Also explained the  reason for not using her hands when applying skin-care products.  It often happens that your hands are not clean (dirt and bacteria on your nails and fingers can cause acne, you know), using a brush reduces the risk of getting wrinkles.

Angelina Jolie

Jolie is a big fan of Prairie’s Skin Caviar which contains actual fish eggs to maintain her youth. Caviar also has powerful skin-care properties. The cream softens and hydrates the skin with fats hence making you look younger.

Kate Hudson

Cold spoon is an age-old trick to reduce eye puffiness and dark circles. But what if you want to do it on all over your puffy face? Definitely not runningy a spoon all over your face. Splashing your face with cold water does the trick. Though it’s not as effective as taking a giant spoon to your face celebrities such as Hudson believe that a couple handfuls of ice-cold water every morning makes a difference in preventing fine lines over time. Hudson also mentioned that she has learned this trick from her mother.

Kourtney Kardashian

You must never have heard of this bizarre hack for a wrinkle-free skin.  But not only silk protects your hair from split ends and keeps it shiny, silk is also great for the skin. As Kourt wrote on her website and app, silk’s “natural fibers contain amino acids, which are really important for collagen production and anti-aging.” Silk also helps the skin retain its moisture, a key in preventing fine lines.

“When I have forgotten to travel with it, I instantly notice a difference on my face with one night of sleeping on a cotton pillowcase,” Kourtney wrote in a post titled “The Item I Swear By for Beauty Sleep.”

How to Wear High Heels Without Pain

Jaziha Syed

High heels: Can’t live with ’em, can’t live without ’em. High heels pain, on the other hand? Can definitely live without it.

Heels are essential to (most) wardrobes, but there’s nothing worse than putting together an amazing outfit for a night out, only to be sidelined an hour in because your feet are throbbing in pain.

It’s the age-old question asked by every shoe-loving woman at one point or another: How in the world do I wear high heels without the pain? Is it even possible? Are we relegated to a “grin and bear” mentality for life in the name of looking—and feeling—awesome? Turns out, a fabulous pair sky-high shoes and pain-free feet aren’t mutually exclusive.

1. Wearing the Right Size Shoe

The mistake most women likely make is not having the right shoe size for their foot. Your foot size changes over the years, even as much as one full size, especially after having kids.Once must have their feet sized once a year especially after having kids. Your foot size changes over the year also measuring your foot width and length is a must since many people think they have wide feet and results in buying the wrong size.

2. Know Your Foot Type

A a podiatrist would be the best way to know your foot type. And just incase you cant, there is a way to check if you have a flat foot or a high-arch foot. Wet your foot and step onto a piece of construction paper the impression will of your foot will tell how much your foot is flattening or how high of an arch you have.

3. Wear Thicker Heels

Avoid the stilettos. They are dangerous for your joints sinse they cause your foot to wobble around. Its not healthy to wear thin heels everyday so make sure you consider thicker heel at times too. Sometimes, the dress is just going to call for a stiletto, as long as it’s something that’s occasional.

4. Opt for a Platform

The platform heels will offset some of the pressure when you are walking especially a rubbery heel while thin soles will almost always give you pain on the bottom of your foot.

5. Kick Off  Your Shoes

Make sure you don’t walk in heels all day long with taking a break.

Kim Kardashian reveals her favorite 6$ Mascara

Jaziha Syed

If there’s one part of Kim Kardashian’s signature beauty look that stands out, it’s her long, fluttery eyelashes. The lash definition is integral to my existence so I’m constantly gawking over celebrities full, bouncy lashes. Everyone believes that she is wearing falses all the time but since she claims otherwise what is the secret? Turns  out its a really cheap one! This past week makeup artist Mario Dedivanovic disclosed he skips fake lashes when working on Kim Kardashian and I’ve never wanted to know what mascara a celebrity uses so bad.

 

HERE IS THE MAGIC MASCARA

Luckil, Kardashian revealed the secret in a recent post on her website and app.
The 37-year-old beauty and entertainment mogul revealed that her favorite mascara is a $6 drugstore staple: L’Oreal Paris Voluminous Mascara in Carbon Black.
She wrote, “The color is the perfect shade of black and it really lifts and separates each lash. It’s perfect for an everyday look or you can layer on multiple coats for a more dramatic eye.”

That’s right, Kim K. actually swears by a $6 drugstore mascara. And now you have one more thing in common with Kim Kardashian: You both love a good makeup bargain!

“Gem Roots” Is the New Spring Hair Color Trend

Jaziha Syed

 Crystal-Inspired Take on the Rainbow Roots Trend

Crystals are believedd to have a spiritual power, you have to admit this: they’ve quickly, fully taken over the beauty world. There’s shimmery crystal makeup, plenty of crystal-infused skin-care products, and, of course, hair inspired by the sparkly stones. Right now, we’re loving “gem roots,” a multicolored look created by Las Vegas-based hairstylist, Chita Beseau. To get the muted-purple look, Beseau used the rainbow roots color technique, which involves painting every shade of the rainbow onto just the roots of someone’s hair for a gradient effect.

It works best on platinum blonde hair and Chita told. She is careful to paint different amounts of each shade on every section of her client’s hair, to make sure you could clearly see each one of the pastel hues. Typically, these colors are applied all over or just at the ends. Focusing them just on the roots is a fun way to try out the muted pastel trend for spring without having to color your whole head. When they fade away, you’re once again left with blonde hair. Beseau told Allure that she specifically chose colors that paid tribute to the “spiritual tones,” and chose rich purple to layer over the client’s roots to re-create the same depth seen in geodes and other mineral rocks. The result? A definitively cool hair look fit for spring.

The 3 Best Eye-Makeup Removers

Jaziha Syed

As total product junkies, we tend to spend a lot of time putting stuff on our faces. So at the end of the day, a good makeup remover is just as important as the makeup we’re taking off. Most eye-makeup removers kind of suck. Either they remove about 75 percent of your makeup but leave your lids slick with oil, or they dissolve 100 percent of your makeup but require you to scrub off a layer of skin (which, fun fact, leads to premature wrinkles) in the process. Here are some of the best make up removers in market.

THIS LIGHTWEIGHT CLEANSING OIL

Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Botanical Cleansing Oil, $32

THIS CLEANSING BALM


As with all cleansing balms, this Korean-beauty formula melts (in 15 seconds flat) to a makeup-dissolving cleansing oil as you massage it across your face. But the real draw of this balm is that it’s spiked with extracts from papaya (a natural exfoliant) and acelora (a vitamin C–rich fruit), both of which work to brighten skin and fade dark spots over time.

In a pinch, Mona Gohara, a dermatologist and associate clinical professor of dermatology at Yale School of Medicine, will opt for straight-up Vaseline to remove makeup. “It’s light and lubricated, so the makeup slides right off without harming the skin,” she says.

Beauty Hacks

Jaziha Syed

There are about a million beauty tips floating around out there on the internet—but that definitely doesn’t mean we should be following every single one of them.

Ready to change the way you look at your hair, skincare, and beauty routines? Read on for some useful beauty hacks!

HACKS!

  • For smudge-proof eye makeup, take blotting tissue to remove any oil or any excess makeup from the eye area. Then, apply a small dab of cream concealer to hold things in place.
  • A good perfume should consist of a balanced blend of notes arranged in a way that creates harmonious accord.
  • In order to keep eyeliner from running and smearing, opt for liner formulas that offer stay-proof wearability.
  • Always allow about two fingers from your nose to where blush starts.
  •  Brush out your curls with your fingers to give your hair a more tousled look.
  • Always keep your summer makeup minimal. Minimal and sheer makeup is the way to go when it’s hot and muggy outside
  • The best thing to do when you go to a makeup counter is be armed with what it is you want to do.
  • Use excess eye cream on cuticles. The more you hydrate your cuticles, the stronger your nails will be.
  • To prevent hair color from fading in the summer months, use a conditioning treatment weekly or bi-monthly.
  • Breakout before a big event? Take oral cortisone a few days before the event to clear your skin.

Rejuvenate Your Face with Ice Therapy

Jaziha Syed

The skin of the face is exposed daily to different factors that can accelerate the aging process.

To counteract the damage caused by pollution, sun exposure, and poor nutrition, the cosmetic industry has created an array of skin care products to renew and rejuvenate your face.

Ice therapy for the face is really economical and doesn’t require a lot of effort.

From the Middle East comes the technique to rejuvenate the face by rubbing ice across lines in the morning and evening to moisturize, tone and prevent the early appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

 

In order to apply this treatment daily, follow these steps:

  1. Before starting, deep clean facial skin and make sure it’s free of makeup.
  2. The ice should be wrapped in a cotton cloth or towel; do not apply the ice directly to the skin.
  3. Rub the cloth across the different parts of the face, spending 1-2 minutes on each area.
  4. Massage with small, circular movements from the jaw, chin, forehead, cheeks and around the nose. Be careful around the eyes.
  5. Finish the treatment by applying a natural facial toner or acne-fighting product.

How does it help?

  1. Fighting acne and the blemishes that appear on the skin as a result of sun exposure and hormonal changes.
  2. Stimulating blood flow to help rejuvenate the skin.
  3. Renewing and toning the face without side effects.
  4. Preventing and fighting the early appearance of wrinkles.
  5. Closing the pores and preventing blackheads.
  6. Reducing inflammation around the eyes and the bags that appear underneath.

This treatment should last for a maximum of 15 minutes.

Confused between Matte or Glossy? Your Perfect Finish.

Kainat Hussain Khanzada

Matte lipsticks reflect less light (that is, they’re not glossy). They give the lip a luxurious, velvety finish, which helps the color appear more rich and vibrant. Matte lipsticks typically last longer since they are less emollient, making them harder to rub off. The downside is that some matte formulas can be a bit drying, or at least feel drying during wear.

Satin lipsticks can also be referred to as demi-matte, or the middle ground between a matte and glossy finish. They have a soft shine that helps lips appear softer and a bit more plump. Satins tend to be the best of both worlds as they are comfortable on the lip, they usually have a bit more moisture to them, and feel better for longer.

Glossy lipsticks pack a high-shine finish that can be just as glamorous as a matte lip. They are usually the most comfortable and moisturizing on the lip, though because of that high moisture content, can be the easiest to rub off.

Sheer lipsticks give your lips a wash of color, while still letting your actual lips show through. These differ from a lip stain because sheer lipsticks still provide a moisturizing barrier and feel plush and comfortable on the lips, whereas stains simply stain the lip.
