Dry skin on the face can be a challenge, especially in the winter months. Strong winds, central heating and a stodgy diet can make dry skin even drier and more fragile. Homemade facial masks made with rich and nourishing ingredients are a brilliant technique to give dry, thirsty skin a much needed moisture boost. It is possible to make spa quality, effective face masks from ingredients you probably have in your kitchen. Furthermore homemade facial masks are totally natural and cost very little compared to commercially made products.

Here are some really quick, simple and effective facial mask recipes to soothe, hydrate and calm dry skin.

Avocado and Vitamin E face mask for dry skin.

Flesh of half ripe Avocado.

Contents of one Vitamin e capsule.

Blend the avocado in a food processor until smooth, and add the vitamin e oil. Mix well and apply to cleansed face. Wash thoroughly after 20 minutes and moisturise.

Two tablespoons of coconut milk.

One tablespoon of pink clay.

Mix both ingredients in to a smooth paste and apply to cleansed skin. Leave for 15 to 20 minutes and wash thoroughly.

Some helpful tips to enhance the benefits of your face mask:

* Try to relax during a facial mask treatment. Lying down and listening to calming music is a simple but effective to technique to induce relaxation.

* Always apply facial mask evenly. If a face mask is applied unevenly it can evaporate too quickly and may cause irritation.

* Do not use a face mask more than once or twice a week.

Not All Beauty Salons Are the Same

[ad_1]

The skin is the body’s largest organ and how we look after it will influence our health and well-being. Your beauty salon should be the place where you obtain professional skin analysis, effective treatments (that give you visible results) and luxurious pampering.

“7 Tips” on Choosing Your Beauty Salon:

TIP 1:

One easy way is to ask your friends or people in the neighbourhood. Referrals are a good way to help you choose your beauty salon. Ask the women in your area, as they will generally be willing to discuss the salon’s quality of the service offered and the basic drawbacks of the beauty salon you are considering.

TIP 2:

Beauty salons need to offer you beauty and skin care treatments plus additional services such as advanced manicure, mineral makeup, massages and a variety of facials that can be tailored to your skin condition. Your salon should be able to offer detailed skin analysis, intensive sauna and spa treatment and a range of specialized services including: advanced healing, electrolysis, mineral makeup and massage sessions.

TIP 3:

Qualifications of the therapists and the reputation of the salon are very important. Good salons display their credentials for all to see. Make sure the beauty salon you choose is staffed by qualified beauty therapists and experts in the field. An incorrect treatment, for your skin type and condition, will at best not give you the outcome you want and at worst can damage your skin.

TIP 4:

The beauty salon’s characteristics and features (Hygiene, ambiance, and decor) play an important part when it comes to choosing your salon. Basically it is the feel good factor because after all, if you are not comfortable and relaxed you will probably not enjoy the beauty treatment and you will not get the maximum benefit either!

TIP 5:

It is recommended, before starting a beauty treatment at a new salon, you take a look at the salon equipment being used. The quality of the beauty salon equipment is important for the salon to function successfully. Beauty Salon equipment would include the facial steamers, facial and massage beds, sauna and spa, reception furniture and other things that add to the ambiance of the salon.

TIP 6:

Value for money (not necessarily the cheapest) is one of the important factors when choosing a beauty salon. Most salons have a rate card that will give you a basic idea. Absolute price is definitely not the answer.

Professional qualifications & salon standards are your best guide to achieve value for money. Look to see what awards the salon has won and what the participation criteria were. Remember tip no 3 if your skin condition is not properly diagnosed or your skin treatment effectively administered it can cost you a lot more to fix than the savings you initially made.

TIP 7:

The Skin care Products offered for sale will vary from the traditional chemical based ingredients to the newer, more skin compatible all natural ingredients. Beauty products form the base of any treatment so ask what is being used on your skin & WHY? The beauty therapist or the salon owner should be able to give you a detailed breakdown of the product ingredients and why they will benefit your skin type and condition.

The very best beauty salons offer a cosmetic ingredient evaluation service. You bring the skin care product you are currently using and have the product ingredients, listed on the back of the label, evaluated for skin compatibility and how effective the ingredients would be for your individual skin type and condition.

Finally, many people consider location or looking at a website a more important criteria than the above when choosing a beauty salon.

Effectiveness is the key. It is worth travelling that extra mile, for a professional, results based high quality service.

I hope these tips will help guide you to select the most efficient and reliable beauty salon that delivers the best skin care results for you!

Facial Exercises for Your Forehead, Eyes, and Lips

[ad_1]

My previous article discussed the importance and effectiveness of facial exercises. Today, I will be showing you three facial exercises that will help you slow down the effects of aging. Keep in mind that facial exercises are done part by part in order to achieve the best results. In order to make this article brief and concise, I will be showing three facial exercises.

1.) Forehead – firm forehead will definitely enhance the way we look, and by doing facial workout focused on your forehead, you can keep it looking firm. You can do this exercise by placing both your index fingers above your eyes. While you are raising your eyebrow, keep pulling your eyes down. You can do this exercise everyday and repetitions can be done as much as you want.

2.) Eyes and Eyebrows – close your eyes and relax, and slowly move your eyes up and down. You can repeat this exercise for fifteen times or as much as you want. Now for your eyebrow exercise, sit straight, close your eyes and relax. Slowly lift your eyebrows while stretching your eyelids in order to keep your eyes closed.

3.) Lips – before doing this exercise, make sure that you have clean hands and that your fingers are clean. As soon as you finished cleaning your fingers, suck them as hard as possible, and remove them slowly from your lips while sucking. Repeat this exercise for at least 15 times in order to make your lips more firm, sexy, and attractive.

There are other facial exercises that should be done in order to slow down the effects of aging. You can look for my other articles regarding face exercises for more stretching and exercises. Always remember that these exercises cannot guarantee any improvements easily, but since they are free, easy to do, and nothing to lose, why not try it and see what these exercises can do for you.
