    10 Rules for healthy hair

    Everybody has a bad hair day occasionally. If this day turns into a week, a month, or even longer, it might be a sign you are not doing the right thing by your hair. Here are ten rules to follow if you want healthy, gorgeous looking hair!

    1. Don’t wash your hair too often

    If you’re always looking for shampoos for daily use, you should know that your hair will appreciate it if you give it a break from time to time. This doesn’t mean that you should go to work with greasy hair or hair that smells bad. However, if the hair is ok, it is better to avoid daily washing.

    8 Eye creams that make a difference


    Do we really need an eye cream when we’re already using a moisturising cream? Couldn’t we just use the same cream? In short, the answer is no. Paying special attention to the skin in the eye area is essential for your beauty routine, especially if you are in your 30s or older. The skin in this area is very delicate and prone to wrinkles and fine lines. A good eye cream is an irreplaceable product for the modern woman, not a whim.

    What you should know about eye creams is that they are ophthalmologically tested, and don’t contain ingredients that can cause irritation. A good eye cream is gentle but highly efficient. Another vital thing to mention about eye creams is that, in most cases, the miracle doesn’t happen overnight. This means that you should use them regularly, according to the indications on the label, for at least three to six months to see results.


    What to look for in an eye cream:

    The best non-invasive anti-aging skincare solutions

    Aging is a complex biologic process that is influenced by both internal and external factors. While aging is a natural process, multiple anti-aging therapies and products were developed over the years to help erase some of the signs of aging or delay their occurrence. If you want to find out how to fight the wrinkles, fine lines and pigmentation spots associated with aging, first we need to see when, how and why they occur and what can be done to prevent them by using the best noninvasive anti-aging skincare solutions.

    Why do wrinkles occur?

    We all know what wrinkles look like – these are the lines or folds in the skin that forms as we age. Some wrinkles tend to get more in-depth with time, such as the ones around the eyes, mouth, and neck area. Wrinkles occur due to various factors, and it is only a few of them that we can control. As we age, the skin becomes less elastic and more fragile. The reduction in collagen production can considerably affect s

    What’s hot – eyebrow trends for 2020

    If you ask a makeup artist about the hot trends for eyebrows, a good one will recommend only to wear what looks good on you, whatever the season might be. However, just like fashion and makeup trends, eyebrow trends have changed over the years.

The good news about eyebrow trends for 2020 is that “natural” is the name of the game. With few exceptions (such as the unibrow, still holding strong), it’s easy to have fashionable eyebrows these days. So, what’s hot this year?

    Natural eyebrows: no drama, just care

    The secrets of skin care in summer

    During summer, it is highly unlikely to have a perfect complexion with no efforts. Most of the time, the skin is oilier or more dehydrated and irritated. There are a few factors to blame for this, and among them, we can mention the UV rays, the heat that often causes an increased production of sebum, dry wind, and even the seawater or the water in the pool. If your skin tends towards dryness, the dehydration that can occur in summer can lead to premature wrinkle occurrence, as well as skin peeling and over sensitive skin. 

    However, there are specific skincare rules for summer that you can follow to get glowing skin and a bright complexion, even when it’s hot outside.

    3 Anti-aging serums you should try in your 30s

    Skincare is what makes all the difference between a dull, prematurely aged skin and a glowing, fresh complexion, whatever your age might be. As you age, your skincare routine becomes more and more important, starting in your 30s when certain skin conditions tend to accentuate, and collagen production starts to decrease. This translates into fine lines and wrinkles, not to mention dull and lacklustre skin. Skin elasticity and glow are associated with a younger age, but we can make this last past your 20s. Our skin specialists advise women to start investing in good quality serums once they get to their 30s. More than this, keeping a healthy and balanced diet, as well as regular facials, can considerably improve the texture of your skin. 

    Of all the skincare products we have available for the skin on your face, the anti-aging serums are probably the most sought-after products. They have concentrated formulas with ingredients that help smooth the skin, reduce the inflammation,
