Shape Eye Brows with Threading, Waxing and Plucking with Tweezers

Eyebrows are tricky creatures. You know how they’re supposed to look, but sometimes they don’t want to cooperate, and because they’re growing out of your head, they have a semi permanent character that defies wishes and good intentions.

One of the many problems of eyebrows is the fact that if they aren’t the right color, they can either dominate your face or disappear entirely. Their unfortunate (but necessary) proximity to your eyeballs makes it a pretty major no-no to just sweep the haircolor across each brow and hope it doesn’t drip into your eyes. That’s why the goddess of practical beauty created the eyebrow pencil, an unsatisfactory solution, but sometimes better than nothing if your eyebrows happen to be very pale.

Editor’s Note ————————————————————–

Proper Beauty Tools Make Eyebrow Shaping a Breeze

Eyebrow Shape and TweezingPlucking the perfect eyebrow shape can be a stressful task because no one wants painful, over tweezed brows. Follow the lead of to make up artists and get the right tweezers and eyebrow care beauty tools. For very little money you can get the same eyebrow tweezers most professional salons use.

Learn from the professionals and see some eyebrow care kits that come with everything you need for perfect brows.


Shaping Your Eyebrows: How to get the perfect arch shape

Shape is also crucial, and if your eyebrows are coarse, creating and maintaining the ideal shape is difficult because pulling out individual hairs can leave large gaps, or severely shorten the length of a brow if you happen to pull out the half-inch hair on the very end.

The perfect eyebrow starts above the inside corner of your eye (over the tear duct), and ends at the outside corner, above your eyelashes. Eyebrows should have an arch: in nature, it’s rarely where it should be, which is a frustrating commentary on standards of beauty. Ideally, the arch happens over the iris, the colored part of your eye. It should be gentle, so if you’re planning to reshape your arch, take it very, very slowly. Do a hair or two a day, and err on the side of caution. Hasty plucking can give you a surprised look that lasts for weeks.

How to Pluck Eyebrows with Tweezers: The Do’s and Don’ts

Many women pluck their eyebrows with tweezers. Some wax them, but wax is tricky because it’s hard to get an accurate shape. And some go to a hair removal salon to try “threading.” Although threading is newly popular in the United States, it is a centuries-old technique of hair removal practiced in India. The eyebrow experts say never, never to pluck your eyebrows from above, but always to pluck from the bottom of the brow. I say, if you have some wild or stray or bushy hairs growing above your brows, feel free to pluck them. I did it once, and nothing bad happened to me.

I read somewhere that it’s okay to trim your eyebrows. I think this is good if the single hairs are long and thick. You can pluck some hairs and trim the others, brushing them up, evening the ends (be careful not to trim too much!), then brushing them down checking again and again as you go along.

Use Eyebrow Gel to Keep Your Brow Shape Neat after Tweezing

Finally, keeping your brows neat can be done with special eyebrow gel, or you can use a little hair gel to smooth them and keep them shapely.

What is SPF? How to Choose a Good Sunscreen

What is SPF? How to Choose a Good Sunscreen


With millions of people suffering with skin cancer or sun related skin damage every year, the use of sunscreen is more important than ever before. The good news is more people are becoming aware of the risks associated with sun overexposure and are taking the necessary steps to protect themselves in the future. The even better news is there are a multitude of products on the market which make it very easy to take care of your skin and protect it from the sun’s damaging rays. However, many people are quite confused over which sunscreen they should purchase and use. There are many confusing terms often used on sunscreen packaging which make it difficult to know what can protect in the most effective way.

SPF is an acronym which stands for Sun Protection Factor. Bottles with higher SPF numbers will protect better against harmful UVB rays from the sun. Basically, the SPF number is an indicator of how long you can stay in the sun without burning. For instance, if a person usually gets burned in 15 minutes, a lotion with SPF 15 protection would allow them to stay in the sun 15 times longer (or for 225 minutes) without burning.  It’s recommended by the American Academy of Dermatology that everyone wear a product with at least SPF 15. Of course, some people wonder if this means an SPF of 50 will protect loads more than lotions with SPF of 30. However, this is not necessarily the case. A lotion with SPF 50 only protects about 2% more than a lotion with SPF 30.


When you’re looking at lotions and sunblock products, be sure to check out the protection they offer from UVA and UVB rays. UVA rays are those which result in the aging of the skin and they may cause skin cancer. Without UVA protection from Coppertone lotions or any other sunscreen lotion, you’ll get more wrinkles. Thus, one factor to think about when choosing your daily makeup or moisturizer is whether or not it offers included UVA protection. Neutrogena offers high rating products to help you combine both makeup coverage and skin protection in one. UVB rays are those which can also give sunburn and are related to the cause of skin cancer.

Waterproof Sunscreen

While years ago white zinc oxide was required for beach goers, today there are many options when it comes to skin protection. You no longer are forced to look like a clown to get ultraviolet protection. Instead, you can now find waterproof sunscreen to help you be able to frolic in the ocean or at the pool without worrying about sun damage. Be sure to look for a type that is both noncomodegenic and hypoallergenic. Also be sure to remember most “waterproof” lotion provides up to 80 minutes or protection but “water resistant” lotion might only give up to 40 minutes of protection.

With so many great products on the market for every day skin protection, there is no excuse to not protecting yourself from the sun’s harmful rays. Skin damage from the sun not only causes cancer but it can also cause things like early aging of the skin and wrinkles. While cancer is much more terrifying to consider, most women aren’t motivated to protect themselves due to it because they think it will never happen to them. However, all women are concerned about wrinkles so take action today and protect yourself from both!

Beauty tips and secrets

Posted on December 6, 2010. Filed under: Uncategorized |

Beauty tips and secrets

If you have yet to discover the most potent secrets that will enhance your natural beauty, you are not alone. But beauty is an attribute that is difficult to define. No single formula, tips, procedures, or technique yields equally desirable results for everyone. The cosmetic advice offered in fashion magazines, within television segments, or on amateur blogs can therefore prove disappointing. Making yourself more beautiful is a life-changing, personal investment—one that should be made in consultation with professionals.

The “secrets” of beauty are not as mysterious as they might seem. In fact, select professionals are eager to share the beauty tips that will help you look your very best. Their mission is to provide information, advice and practical instruction tailored to your needs. Your hair, eyebrows, eyelashes, skin, nails, and lips each get thorough attention.

Experts begin with the basics, by noting any physical conditions that can affect your appearance. Beauty consultants then offer advice for addressing common symptoms such as dry skin, thinning hair, brittle nails, chaffing, and chapped lips. Clients are urged to seek medical evaluation if an underlying illness is suspected.

The most important aspect of your beauty tips consultation is the knowledge you gain. Experts do not simply implement techniques. They also provide the practical information that empowers you to feel confident. Your beauty potential continues to grow, long after your appointment ends. You will learn how heat and ultraviolet ray exposure, the use of specific hygienic and cosmetic products, the effects of environmental toxins, and precipitation should influence your beauty decisions.

Rather than offering you just one solution, professional consultants present a variety options, and then encourage you to make the choice with which you are most comfortable. But beauty experts are also hands-on instructors. They do not simply talk about cosmetic care. Once you know what works, and why it works, they teach you the techniques. Education includes not only observing them, but also practicing the tips yourself.

Expert beauty tips consultation services are even more beneficial because they are provided in an exceptionally professional manner. Meet with your personal beauty advisor in a comfortable environment, and enjoy the pleasant, relaxing atmosphere. Your friendly relationship with your advisor will be founded upon respect and understanding. You receive a thorough, individualized consultation during each appointment.

When you are ready to discover just how beautiful you truly are, do not be distracted by the latest fads, quick fixes, or expensive products that promise to reveal some magic secret.

Do you want firmer breasts with out the surgery?

Posted on December 4, 2010. Filed under: Uncategorized |

Take care of your breasts

To firm breasts and tighten the skin, mix one teaspoon of vitamin E oil with one tablespoon of yogurt and an egg.Mix in blender.Massage this mixture into breasts and wear an old bra over the mixture for at least thirty minutes.Rinse off with warm water.

You can exercise and build muscles to firm your breasts.

You’ve noticed that your breasts are sagging a little … Simple strength training may give you the lift you long for. The alternative is breast implants

There is no avoiding it – gravity, that is. As you age, parts of your body seem to sag, and no place do women see it more than their breasts. All hope is not lost.
According to personal trainer Kim Albano from New York City’s Equinox fitness club, there are some easy exercises you can do to give your breasts the appearance of lift. “Breasts are fat, so you can’t firm the fatty tissue but underneath is muscle”, she says. The pectoral muscles, to be specific, and they can be built up in a way that gives your breasts a higher, firmer look.

You can strengthen your pecs with four suggested exercises from Albano (see below). Choose three of the four and do them at least twice a week or three times to see results sooner. Albano stresses that these are just a start and encourages women to try different ones. “Everyone will respond differently to various exercises, so you have to find what is right for you,” she says. “And mix up your workout so your muscles don’t get bored, because then they stop developing.”

Start out with 1 set of 10 to 15 repetitions eventually building up to 3 sets of 10 to 15 repetitions using weights that make your muscles feel fatigued when you get to the end of each set. When the exercise becomes too easy, add more weight or another set.

Flat Chest Press

Lie faceup on a bench with a dumbbell in each hand, your wrists should be in a neutral position, palms facing forward, elbows bent 90 degrees and held out to the sides parallel with shoulders. Exhale as you extend your arms toward the ceiling with knuckles facing up, being careful not to touch the weights together, and squeezing your pectoral (chest) muscles at the top of the movement. Inhale as you return to starting position.


Lie facedown on the floor with your hands under you shoulders. Your feet should be about shoulder-width apart, with your toes tucked under so that you are balancing on the balls of your feet. Contract your abdominals so your back is parallel to the floor. Keep your head and neck in line with your spine. Inhale as you lower your chest as close to the floor as possible. Exhale as you return to starting position.

Incline Chest Press

This exercise is similar to the flat chest press, but you do it on a 45-degree incline, which will recruit different muscle fibers. Lie faceup on an incline bench with a dumbbell in each hand, palms facing forward, elbows bent 90 degrees and held out to the sides parallel with shoulders. Exhale as you extend your arms toward the ceiling with knuckles facing up, being careful not to touch the weights together, and squeezing your pectoral (chest) muscles at the top of the movement. Inhale as you return to starting position.

Cable Crossover

Stand in the center of a cable tower, feet hip-width apart, one foot slightly in front of the other. Grab the horseshoe handle of a cable at the top of each end of the machine in each hand, palms facing down and slightly forward, arms at shoulder level. Contract your abdominals, lean slightly forward from your hips, and relax your knees. Keeping a slight bend in your elbows, exhale as you pull the handles down in front of you until your hands come together, hold briefly. Inhale as you slowly return to starting position.
