    10 Tips and tricks for glowing skin from celebrities

    We see celebrities at parties, on the red carpet, giving interviews, and we all can’t help but wonder if that perfect skin is a real thing or just the work of a talented makeup artist. 

    Jennifer Lopez is on her social media accounts posting selfie’s fresh from the shower. So… no makeup and her skin is glowing. No visible lines or wrinkles, no large pores, a healthy complexion for a 20-year-old woman. Only thing is, she is decades from her 20s, and she is not the only one.

    So we took up the challenge to do some research and come up with a list of tips and tricks for glowing skin, all from our favourite celebrities! Let's dive in and have a look!

     

    Get all the benefits of Hyaluronic acid 

    Hyaluronic acid is like the norm when it comes to filling up fine lines, wrinkles, and skin hydration. It is a popular ingredient in skincare products for different skin types, and Olivia Munn swears by it. And she is not the only

    Best skincare for when its cold

    You have probably noticed already that during the winter months, the skin tends to get overly dry and dull. The changing of the seasons can be a real challenge for the skin. This is the reason why your skin needs a special skincare routine every season. Otherwise, you might discover that the tight skin sensation is here to stay, not to mention redness, itchiness, flakiness, and others. 

    More than this, some people even notice an accentuation of skin conditions such as acne and eczema when the temperatures are low. Fortunately, there are things you can do to prevent the cold weather from having a negative impact on your skin.

    Skin care tips and tricks for when it’s cold:

    - Don’t forget the sunscreen

    It might sound a bit funny to start the list with sunscreen – one of the skincare products that most people associate with summer days, but the dry air of the cold winter isn’t enough to prevent skin cancer. However, even if

    Cleansing products with anti-ageing ingredients

    The facial cleanser is one of the most important skincare products in your daily routine. And even if you don’t have the time or the energy to use different types of serums and boosters every day, you still need to clean your face when you wake up and before going to bed. 

    Long gone are the days when cleaning the face was all about cold water and soap. Modern-day cleansing products are rich in moisturizing ingredients, and some of them also have anti-aging properties.

    So, if you don’t have the time for complex skincare treatments, you could choose a cleansing product with anti-ageing ingredients to reap all the benefits.

    How to choose a good cleansing product

    Do you know what the ingredients to look for in a cleansing product are? Well, most people are not fully aware of the difference between active and inactive ingredients in skincare.

    If you used to choose your cleansing foam or gel only considering the cost and what the

    Glowing complexion after 40 - tips and tricks

    If you have seen Sex and the City (and if you didn’t, you should!), then you know that life starts at 40. But it is actually about feeling good in your skin, whatever your age might be. 

    With the years passing by, we start noticing the first signs of aging at the level of the skin. We are talking about pigmentation spots, dullness, fine lines around the eyes, less firmness, to mention just a few. Fortunately, there are some rules (let’s call them tips and tricks!) that you can follow to have glowing complexion even after 40 years old! 

    Start an evening beauty routine

    Your skin is maturing, just like you. It is a natural process, and it can’t be stopped. However, starting an evening routine can help you erase a few years from your face. If you want to look 40 years old even in your 60s, now would be a good time to start pampering your skin in the evenings too.

    Just think of this as another five minutes you are giving to yours

    5 Anti-ageing myths busted

    Navigating the world of skincare is not an easy job, especially after a certain age when your skin needs more than a good dose of daily hydration. 

    With the first signs of ageing – fine lines around the mouth and the eyes, maybe even some wrinkles and pigmentation spots, less elastic skin – comes the temptation to try the overly hyped anti-aging products. 

    In a vast majority of cases, this translates into a lot of money spent for very little (if any) anti-ageing benefits. Because unfortunately, not all promises come true! 

    Before putting those products (that failed to deliver) on the blacklist, you should know that different products deliver different results for different skin types. This is the reason why one product might be great for you but not so good for someone else. This is the reason why some people swear by a certain skincare product while others swear at it. 

    To help you make better skincare choices in the future, we dec

    Tips from skin therapists – how to avoid skin dryness

    The most popular advice we get when complaining about dry skin is to get a moisturiser. The recommendation is useful, and it works… up to a certain point. There are certain mistakes we do every day that can result in skin dryness. And most of the time, it’s not even about the skincare products we use. Skincare therapists all agree that the key to getting rid of skin dryness is not necessarily in your cream but your daily habits. Here are some recommendations to avoid skin dryness:

    Read the label of your shower gel

    Just like micellar water and facial cleansing gels, there are certain ingredients in your shower gel that can lead to skin dehydration. Salicylic acid, as well as glycolic acid, are among the active ingredients. They have a powerful anti-aging and rejuvenating properties, however, they can also, in some instances, cause skin dryness. To avoid this, read the label of your shower gel carefully and look for hydrating ingredients such as cer

    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:

    Travel size skincare and haircare – the complete guide

    You are traveling for a couple of days, and you don’t want to carry all your makeup and skincare products with you?

Fortunately, the travel size products have been specially designed to provide us with the same quality we are used to at home, but at a more affordable price and a smaller size.

    More than great for traveling, the travel size products are also fantastic when it comes to trying out a new product before committing to the full size (and price).

    10 Skincare New Year Resolutions

    New Year, new beginnings! A great time to be grateful for what you have and plan for the future! A time to think about what you want to experience and what you want to change, what you want to achieve, and how. In other words, the New Year’s Resolutions! Here are ten ideas for your New Year’s Resolutions in skincare:

     

    1. A daily skincare routine

    This is more important than getting the latest, most expensive serum, and the benefits are amazing in the long run. Even if you are in your early 20s or your 50s, you need a daily skincare routine that you can commit to. It can be as simple as cleansing and hydration or more elaborate with cleanser, toner, serum, moisturising cream, eye cream, and so on. It can be once a day or twice a day. Consistency is the key here. Patience too! Don’t change skincare products after just a few applications (not unless they are not suitable for your skin type). Use the same products for at least 2 to 3 months before moving on to
