A single trip to the make up store can easily set you back hundreds of dollars. If you invest on good products that will truly make a positive difference in your look, then consider the money well spent. The problem is when you stock up on beauty products that you dont use because you realize you dont need them or worse, theyre the wrong beauty products for you. Here is a list of the eight must-have items for your make-up kit. The specific brand you will choose will depend on your budget, your preferences and your skin type but this should serve as your guideline as to what you really need. Following this list will save you from making unnecessary make-up purchases.1. Tinted moisturizer- unless youre going to a dinner party or a photo shoot, you dont really need to pile on the make-up. Instead of using foundation (liquid or cake), purchase a good tinted moisturizer. Tinted moisturizers give your skin an even, clean, natural look. It also gives you the added benefit of moisturizing your skin.2. Tweezers- there is nothing like clean brows to give your face an instant face-lift. With the right brow shape, your face can look young and clean. The best tweezers are relatively cheap so they will probably be the cheapest must-have in your make-up kit. Good tweezers can last you many years.3. Eyelash curler- Bright, clear, open eyes can make a big difference in a persons look. Curled lashes help in showcasing beautiful eyes.4. Blush- Healthy flushed cheeks can make a person look absolutely gorgeous and can complete a persons natural look. There are a number of blushes available in the market in different forms: powder, gel, pencil and others. Some products even work as both cheek and lip tints.5. Lipstick- Select a good shade of lipstick that can take you from day to night. You can get several shades of lipstick because there are plenty of inexpensive brands available but you must have one lipstick shade that can work for all your outfits and for different occasions. Once you find a shade that works for your skin tone and your outfits, make sure to get a fresh tube as soon as it runs out. This lipstick will be your signature shade, something you dont have to think twice about putting on when youre in a rush.6. Eyeliner- eyeliners can be used to line eyelids or define eyebrows. It can make your eyes look bigger or smaller depending on your preference. Pencil eyeliners are great because they are inexpensive and they dont drip.7. Lip gloss- for days when you dont feel like wearing make-up but can not step out of the house looking unkempt, lip gloss can add an instant oomph to your look. Lip gloss are also great when you need to do quick touch ups.8. Mascara- applying mascara can make a person look extra glamorous with very little effort. Invest in a good mascara to give your eyes an instant pop. Mascaras are also great for when you want the more dramatic effect of smoky eyes.
Breast implant surgery has been embraced by millions of women around the globe, despite the medical and social controversies surrounding the procedure. Womens breasts since time immemorial have been eye candy for men and a source of pride for women. No wonder, it has also been the inspiration for much beauty in literature.Breast enhancement is the buzzword of the cosmetic plastic surgery industry and breast implants have been heralded and desired by women of every shape, size, and financial background. Also called mammoplasty, a breast implant procedure increases the volume of the breast(s) by the placement of an implant within the chest, behind each breast. Changes as a result of weight loss, childbirth, and aging can lead a woman to the decision to undergo a breast implant procedure. And although the safety of the breast implants has been questioned in the past, recent research has concluded that saline breast implants are safe to use and to receive.What is Breast Implant Surgery? Breast implants surgery is the planting of prosthesis to enhance the size and shape of a woman's breasts or to reconstruct the breast. Of the four types of breast implants, saline (salt water) filled implants are now the most popular, and regarded as the safest, in cosmetic surgery circles. Breast Implants Surgery Before the ImplantsIn the initial consultation, the physician will be looking to determine whether a patient is the best candidate for the breast implant procedure. An extensive medical history will be taken, as well as medical tests to determine the patients current health status. Before the breast implant surgery, the surgeon must have a comprehensive overview of the patients health - so it is necessary that any problems, or medications, or recreational drug use be disclosed at this appointment. Some patients history may preclude them from undergoing the breast implants procedure, or at least need to be scheduled at a later date when health issues and habits have been resolved.Breast Implants Surgery Who are they for?The best candidate for breast implants is a woman that has completed the growth processusually the age of 18 is determined to be the cutoff age. And women who are not pregnant or breastfeeding are also good candidates for breast implants. Patients should also be in good health and not planning significant weight loss. Any of these factors can change the intended results of the breast implants.Breast Implants Surgery The ProcedureThe breast implants procedure is usually done under general anesthesia, or when the patient is asleep. The implant is inserted through a small incision, with hardly any scar that can be noticed. Sometimes the incision for the breast implants is underneath the breast, or it may be within the lower edge of the areola, or it may be in the armpit area so as to avoid any scars in the breast region. After the incision is made, the surgeon opens a pocket under the natural breast where the breast implant will be placed. Once the implant is in place, then the incision is closed and the next breast is done, if necessary.Breast Implants Surgery Risks and ComplicationsBreast implants have always been frowned upon by medical professionals and moral police. But there are real risks associated with breast implants. The most recent controversy is that of implants filled with a silicone gel, so many physicians are using implants that are filled with a saline solution instead. In the rare occurrence the implant is punctured and the contents are released, the saline solution is reabsorbed by the body without adverse effects. With silicone implants, some patients have reported disastrous effects from the breakage of the silicone filled breast implants. It seems that the silicone can induce the bodys immune system to respond and it can cause a type of chronic autoimmune disease in some.Other possible complications include the same as with any surgery: reactions from the anesthesia during the receiving of the breast implants, infection, slippage of the implant, and patient dissatisfaction with the results.
Your daughter or the significant little girl in your life, the same one who used to dump strained peas on her head and drop toys in the toilet, is growing up, and, believe it or not, will soon be choosing her own haircuts and picking out her own outfits, not to mention dating, driving, working, and voting. Thanks to easy media access, little girls today are much more fashion conscious than their mothers were, and even if your teen or pre teen is a camo pants wearing, mud playing, bundle of energy, it is just as important for her to have the right hair cut now as it will be in a few years when she becomes even more fashion conscious. Depending on the age of your young girl, you should allow her to help you decide the hair length that is right for her. Long hair on little girls is classic, but if she has thick or very fine hair, this can be difficult to maintain. Also, something that her salon stylist can help you with is determining the best style for her face shape and hair type. For short hair styles the Pageboy or Bob hair cut is best for thick hair, thin hair, younger girls, and active girls. The Pageboy is a basic variation on the bob and is easy to care for. Layers can also be cut into the bob for a look of added texture and depth, and hold products, can be applied to add extra tousled effects and firm hold for special occasions. The Pageboy or Bob with bangs is the same as above, except with a wisp of a bang, skimming the skin just above the eyebrows, and adding softness to longer, more angular face shapes. For short hair almost any variations on an adult hair style can be applied to young girls hair, but the trick is to make sure that your daughter is able to style it on her own or with minimal help. For older girls maybe nine and under this should not be a problem, but the younger ones will more than likely require a little help.For medium hair styles the graduated layer look is easy to care for and style. It requires minimal care and looks very cute, especially on little girls with thick hair, as the ends can be razored back to reduce bulk and define the layers. A little gel, brushed through the hair in the morning help to keep layers defined, and a spritz pomade will make sure that her hair stays brilliantly beautiful even when she is hanging upside down on the monkey bars.For long hair styles girls with very fine hair require constant trims to keep it looking sleek, but most girls, including those with very thick hair, look adorable with a long look. The trick is, again, to add layers to the back but not too many, maybe one or two, to reduce the bulk and keep hair looking fresh between trims. Remember that a haircut is very personal and a hairstyle that you may think looks great on your little princess may make her want to hide in the closet. So remember to always listen and try to find the right style together.
The prettiest makeup finish starts with the cleanest skin. The first step to clean, clear skin is thoroughly removing makeup with the right products. Theres certainly no shortage of products to choose from. Its best to pick the one thats made for your skin type. Here are some popular options.The two simple rules for choosing a makeup removal product are: dont use something thats too harsh on your skin and avoid cleansers that leave a greasy residue.

This product requires no rinsing, just wipe your face with the cloth and throw it in the trash when youre finished.Generally, any cleanser with do double duty as a face-makeup remover. However, the eyes are usually a different story for a couple of reasons: The skin around the eye is especially sensitive and some cleansers may irritate the eyeball itself. Not many products are marketed solely as face-makeup removers, but many say they are exclusively for taking off eye makeup. Kiehls Supremely Gentle Eye Makeup Remover is said to clean fast and rinse completely. Niveas Visage Eye Makeup Remover works well and is inexpensive. It sounds oversimplified, but its not a bad idea to gauge a product by the effort it takes to work. Your lashes have a higher purpose than just making your eyes look pretty. Excessive scrubbing can inflame the eye and break or pull out lashes you need to protect your eyes from debris.If you cant seem to find just what youre looking for in a store-brought product, have no fear, for home remedies abound.

If you prefer an oilier product, you can follow it up with an astringent, just be very careful not to get any in your eye.
Eucalyptus oil is a popular insect repellent, skin treatment and aromatherapy oil. Using eucalyptus oil wisely and with caution is important since it is a potent remedy that can produce sever side effects when used excessively or in combination with the wrong drugs. By knowing the potential hazards linked to improper use of eucalyptus oil you will be able to use eucalyptus oil more safe and avoid dangerous side effects. It is always important to understand how a remedy can affect your body before you commence any treatment. Recognizing the early signs of eucalyptus oil poisoning and allergic reactions to eucalyptus oil is very important. You should avoid using eucalyptus oil internally unless you are under the supervision of a licensed health professional. The reason behind this advice is the instances where people have developed severe toxic reactions to eucalyptus oil when drinking it. If you have ingested eucalyptus oil and begin to suffer from vomiting, nausea and/or stomach pain you should seek immediate medical attention. High doses of eucalyptus oil can cause bleedings, seizures and heart problems. Severe eucalyptus oil poisoning can even lead to coma and death. Animal tests show that ingested eucalyptus oil will affect the blood sugar levels, but more studies must be carried out if we want to know for sure whether or not this is true for humans as well.Eucalyptus oil is a popular ingredient in many mouthwashes, and such mouthwashes should therefore be kept out of reach for children and pets. If a person swallows large amounts of eucalyptus oil mouthwash, the toxics can cause multi-organ failure and affect the cardiovascular system. Such problems have however only been reported in patients that swallowed really large amounts of eucalyptus oil mouthwash. Swallowing a very small amount of eucalyptus oil mouthwash when you are gurgling is much less dangerous, but should of course be avoided. Do not let children use eucalyptus oil mouthwash unless it has been prescribed by a licensed health professional. Children are more sensitive to toxics and the risk of them swallowing mouthwash is also higher. Eucalyptus oil is an important part of many aromatherapy treatments. Adding eucalyptus oil to baths are very popular, but some people have reported laboured breathing, wooziness and drowsiness after taking long and hot baths with eucalyptus oil. It is of course hard to know whether this was caused by the long and hot bath, or by the eucalyptus oil, or by the combination of both, but caution is still recommended when using eucalyptus oil for the first time. Start by taking a shorter bath with a small amount of eucalyptus oil to test your sensitivity. Another problem linked to long and strong eucalyptus oil baths are skin irritation. Applying eucalyptus oil directly to the skin is a common treatment for a wide range of skin problems, but you should keep in mind that the strong eucalyptus oil can cause skin irritation, especially if the skin is already injured by eczema, burns or similar. A painful burning feeling can develop, sometimes combined with skin rashes. Try the eucalyptus oil on a piece of healthy skin to test your sensitivity before you proceed to treat upset skin.
