Fashion and Style: What Causes Hair to Frizz?

By Mike John

Hair comes in many different colors and textures, but there’s one aspect that all types of hair share: the potential for frizzing. Fortunately, the more common causes can be remedied and allow you to keep the frizzing to a minimum. Here are some of the reasons why your hair is doing the unthinkable and what you can do to manage the situation.

Using the Wrong Type of Brush

There are a lot of rush designs on the market today and with good reason. One design is ideal for hair that is thinner and straight while a different kind would work better for hair that’s thicker and has more body. If you are using a brush that is not right for your hair type, making a change to something more appropriate could reduce the frizzing by a noticeable margin.

Not Brushing Before You Shampoo

Not everyone thinks about brushing before they shampoo and condition their hair. If so, you are not getting the best results from your hair care products. By brushing before you wet your hair and apply the shampoo, it’s easier for the product to distribute evenly. While this is important for everyone, it’s especially helpful for people with thick and somewhat curly hair.

Keep in mind it’s not just about the even distribution of the shampoo. Brushing first makes it easier to rinse the shampoo out of your hair and paves the way for evenly distributing the curly hair conditioner during the application. Try this approach and you’ll notice a difference after just a few rounds of shampooing and conditioning.

Washing Your Hair Too Often

Even when you use great hair care products, washing your hair too frequently strips it of essential oils. Dryer hair is not just brittle; it’s also likely to frizz much easier.

If you are in the habit of shampooing and conditioning your hair daily, consider cutting back to every other day. From straight to curly hairstyles, this one tip will go a long way toward improving the health and the look of your hair.

Using Too Much Heat

Excessive heat is another reason why your hair tends to frizz. If you like to wash and condition your hair during a shower, adjust the water so that it’s no more than lukewarm. When you use a flat iron or a similar device to straighten or add curls to your hair, use a setting that will not cause damage. If you are not sure what setting to use, consult as stylist.

As you begin to make changes in how you care for your hair, make a note of how the texture improves. Along with no longer dealing with frizzy hair, you’ll notice that it’s softer, easier to manage, and has a healthy appearance. Get started today and things will look a lot better after a couple of weeks.




Fashion and Beauty: Dressing Well and Taking Care of your Skin

By Sandra Walters

Fashion and beauty is all about taking care of your appearance. From fashionable dressing to glowing skin, how you look can have a significant effect on your self-esteem, personal and professional life. The following are guidelines on how to maintain your image.

Accessories

  •  Accessorizing properly is a key step towards creating different looks with similar items. This means that with the right accessories the same pieces in your closet can be diversified by simply wearing accessories.
  •  Jewelry, scarves, hats, belts and gloves are among the accessories that you can choose from. Identify what works for you and observe your entire outfit before you accessorize.
  •  Making the right choices will have a major impact on your outfits, including simple ones and accentuate your features.

Wardrobe Review

It is important to review your wardrobe regularly and get rid of things that you do not want to wear anymore. You can donate the items that you do not need and create space for new items that work well with the current pieces that you want to keep. Learn to be innovative with the clothes that you have and create a variety of combinations.

Mix and Match

Latest trends can help you to become more fashionable but if you prefer a minimalistic approach, you need to know how to mix and match different items. Organize your garments into various outfits and spare some time to try out different looks at home.

Flattering Clothes

Find out the types of clothing that look good on you and those that do not. If something is fashionable but is not right for your body type or style, look for something else. Determine what is stylish and flattering by setting aside some time to discover the best combinations, the items that define your shape and bring out your best features. Get a manicure here.

Dealing with Dry Skin

When you notice that your skin is becoming flaky and dry, you need to implement certain techniques and use the right products to restore its smooth and supple texture. The natural aging process can take a toll on your skin and a consistent skincare routine is necessary for healthy and youthful skin.

Moisturize

Moisturizing your skin will help to protect it from the drying effects of exposure to the environment. Use a hydrating product and apply it after your shower or bath. The best time to apply a moisturizing

product is when your skin is damp because this makes it easier for it to be absorbed. If you are prone to dry skin, consider carrying a portable container of your favorite product and use it during the day when parts of your skin become dry or sore.

Oil Treatment for Skin

  •  Give your skin a deep conditioning treatment regularly with oil that works for you. Rub the oil generously on the skin. Natural oil such as such as almond and oil are the best options for this purpose because of their soothing effect.
  •  Try different moisturizing products until you find the right one for your skin.
  •  After a deep conditioning oil treatment, allow the product to penetrate your skin and you can wash it off the next morning.

Young Entrepreneurs: Is Glaminizers CEO and Lifestyle Model Stephanie Tear The Next Kylie Jenner?

In a society and culture that seems to embrace making money and doing business in a non-traditional type of way, more and more Millennials are striking out on their own in becoming young entrepreneurs.

Young entrepreneurs or YE’s, as they are referred to in the industry are aged 17-30, and helm a wide range of start-up companies in the entertainment, non-profit, digital content, beauty and tech.

With the current job economy slowing recovering, and most employers being very selective in hiring, most Millenials are flipping the proverbial script and becoming their own bosses in becoming YE’s instead.

According to an article from the UK-based business website, Startups.com titled “Generation enterprise: The rise of young entrepreneurs”, most Millennials aged 16-24 are more than likely to strike out on their own as opposed to working for someone else;

A C&G survey of 16-24 year olds has found that 49% have a ‘strong desire’ to set up their own business and with the main reason being that they would rather not bow down to the demands of a boss.

Also, about one in ten want to get into business in the next year with about 35% saying they want to start within the next five years.

Young people describe themselves as ambitious, non-conformist and want to be millionaires. Seventy per cent say that they ‘want to be in control of their lives’ and this means having no other boss than themselves.

Also young people are much more likely to be inspired by the likes of Jamie Oliver and Anita Roddick of this world than they are by P Diddy or Simon Cowell. Other high-profile millionaires such as Richard Branson and Easyjet’s Stelios Hadji Ioannou are also greatly admired by the coming generation.

However, arguably more importantly, is the fact that nearly half of young people know someone under the age of 30 who has already gone it alone. Providing them with a great opportunity to gleam valuable tips and insights about business from someone in their immediate circle.”

Naturally, for YE’s—let along your female entrepreneurs, role models such as “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” reality star and Instamodel Kylie Jenner are looked up to as well. Jenner, who launched her own line of beauty and cosmetics line, Kylie Cosmetics in 2016 to much acclaim and success.

At just 19, the half-sister of Kim Kardashian and younger sister of model Kendall Jenner is worth an estimated $20 million, per CelebrityNetworth.com.

Thanks to her success in modeling, beauty and blogging, Jenner has inspired a new generation of women to get into the game and be their own boss. Could lifestyle model and Glaminizers CEO and Founder, Stephanie Tear be the next up-and-coming YE success story?

Robert D. Cobb: What king of model do you consider yourself?

Stephanie Tear:“I consider myself to be lifestyle model. I can model a lot of different looks. However, I feel like the reason people relate to me is because I have a very real persona that comes through in my photos. Whether I am glammed up and in a sexy outfit, or someone is snapping photos of me on the couch. I can be both and I like girls to know they too can be both, beautifully.”

 

Robert D. Cobb: What brands have you modeled for? Which do you enjoy modeling for the most?

Stephanie Tear:“I have modeled for Murderous Clothing, South Moon Under, Planet Hero, Lady Boss Lashes, Retro City Sunglasses, Bye Bye Bella, Teez, Krave Clothing, Shony Clothing, The Rich Era, and more.

Robert D. Cobb: What is the most exciting aspect of modeling?

Stephanie Tear:The most exciting aspect of being a model, for me, is connecting with new people and being able to collaboration on an idea to bring forth a vision. I think the most beautiful part of being a creative person is coming together with others and producing the visuals in your head!”

 

Robert D. Cobb: For those who don’t know, describe Glaminizers?
Stephanie Tear:Glaminizers is my cosmetic brand. It began with acrylic makeup storage that was studded with Swarovski crystals. The term Glam and Organizers merged to create Glaminizers. I know have tons of glitter, pressed glitter shadows, brush cleaner, lip scrub, some clothing items, and more!

I make my products without chemicals, parabens, and dyes because I believe cosmetics should be as pure as possible to do for our skin what they need to do! I use all organic and natural products. All my products are currently vegan and in the future, the only ingredient I plan on having that isn’t vegan is honey. Which, when harvested organically no harm comes to the bees!”

Robert D. Cobb: Since we’re in the age of Kylie & teen entrepreneurs, how does it feel to be running your own company at the age of 20?

Stephanie Tear:“I honestly always knew I would have a business very young. Solely because I have endless ideas and I am such a visual person that I have to create what I see in my head! It feels amazing to know I did this on my own and that it can only become bigger and better. I love creating new products and enjoy the entire process.

Being young and a business owner can sometimes cause people to doubt you or not take you seriously. I just think it’s ironic how often young people are doubted. There’s nothing better than a young mind. We have our entire life ahead of us.”

 

Robert D. Cobb: Do you see yourself as the next Kylie Jenner?

Stephanie Tear:“In response to that, I feel that I will be bigger than Kylie Jenner, as well as more connected with my audience. Definitely more elaborate in my creations.”


Robert D. Cobb: Where do you see yourself and your company in 3-5 years?
Stephanie Tear: “I see myself living in LA, doing movies, on the cover of magazines, and working with amazing designers. I also see myself owning more brands or even expanding mine into many others. I know I will change the game, I know I’m meant to. So, it’s never and “if”, its “when” it happens!

I see Glaminizers being a full range cosmetic line with amazing ingredients as always. I see it starting a trend. A trend of extravagant, fun makeup, that doesn’t need chemicals to work well. I can’t wait to show the world everything I know I can do, unlike things that have been done before.”

 

Robert D. Cobb: What is it about your brand that you feel stands out from the others?
Stephanie Tear:“I think my brand stands out from others mostly because the vibe is so different. Every product has extremely fun, girly packaging. I give my all into everything I do. Every product I create has such an extreme amount of effort and care put into it. I am one of the most critical consumers so I make sure everything I create is so professionally done, clean, well-constructed, well executed, and beautifully made.

Photo: Crystal Nelson

I am a makeup lover, junkie, and hoarder… So it’s only right for me to know exactly what I love about some products and what I don’t about others. I have such an extensive knowledge on makeup which I feel is so tremendously important! I created my brand with the consensus of exactly what I wish I could have, buy, find! ”


Describe your vision:

Stephanie Tear:“My vision is to create a beautiful brand that provides people with organic products that are actually good for their skin! I want to show people that there is a way to make products naturally and have them work just as well, if not much better; especially in the long run.”

 

Robert D. Cobb: What advice would you give to others trying to start their own brand and be their own boss?

Stephanie Tear: “I would advise them to go with whatever idea or vision they have even if, at that time, it seems out of reach. Everything seems impossible to do until you work hard enough to actually have it. I would want them to know no matter what, if you believe in your brand, the possibilities are endless. Also, to never give up and to try even when things don’t go well, because the best things happen after hardships.”

 

Robert D. Cobb: Within the industry, Who is your inspiration?

Stephanie Tear: “I draw inspiration from those that I find creative rather than “the best at what they do” I am so inspired by Teyana Taylor for her drive, style, and creative mind. She embraces her body and always does unrealistic or practical shoots, which I love!

I am so inspired by Sasha Samsonova’s photography, it speaks to my soul just because of how creative every photo is. I also am so inspired by the drive and determination that Zendaya has.”

Robert D. Cobb: What is your secret to staying in shape?

Stephanie Tear:“My secret to staying in shape doesn’t involve much exercise. Surprisingly! I maintain my toned, athletic shape simply through my diet! I am not one to enjoy the gym, I would rather work out at home. I became vegan about 10 months ago and it was easily the BEST decision I have made for my health!

You are consuming all the right fruits and veggies for a lean, fit tummy, toned legs, and slim build overall! I find that I am way less tired, happier, my mind is more efficient, and I don’t really need to work out much to maintain my tone, which is SO nice! When I do workout, I do squats, crunches, planks and stair climbers!”

 

Robert D. Cobb: Outside of modeling, what are your hobbies?

Stephanie Tear:“I made most of my hobbies into jobs. I love so many different things and enjoy anything within the lines of creativity. I am also a makeup artist and have my own makeup brand. That is for sure a passion of mine which is why I created a business from it. I paint people’s faces like an artist would a canvas.

That includes SFX looks and any makeup enthusiast looks, that aren’t so every-day. I also love to write, create music, and dance!”

 

Robert D. Cobb: With Spring here and summer right around the corner, what tips do you have for looking great?

Stephanie Tear: “I think the most important tip is to drink water!

Water is what makes you glow & that is definitely what everyone wants during the warm months! Eat a lot of fruits, stay hydrated, & stay with the sun screen because you want that beautiful skin forever, not just while you’re young!”

 

Robert D. Cobb: What beauty and style/swimwear trends do you recommend for looking hot, confident, and sexy?

Stephanie Tear: “A glowy, natural makeup look is always in for the summer! I love a lightweight, dewy foundation, with brows, lip gloss, and some lashes; don’t forget the highlighter!

As far as swimwear, high-waisted bathing suits are my FAVE! They give you such a vintage, sexy look while also covering up more! Even with clothing for the spring/summer, I love a good pair of high-waisted shorts! They look so cute with cropped tops and boots!”

Photo: Crystal Nelson

Sports: Who are your favorite teams?

Stephanie Tear:“I am not into sports much, but I jump on the bandwagon for what my family loves. Nationals and Redskins all day! We also have endless UMB (University of Maryland-Baltimore) Terrapins shirts and sweatshirts because that’s how much we love them!”

 

Robert D. Cobb: What are your favorite cities to travel to?

Stephanie Tear:“I am in love with Manhattan, Brooklyn, Atlanta, Georgia, and Miami FL!”

 

Robert D. Cobb: What advice would you give to women aspiring to get into modeling?

Stephanie Tear:“I would tell anyone trying to become a model, you already are. Being a model doesn’t mean getting a job that signifies “I’ve made it” Being a model means modeling strength, beauty, and grace to anyone observing your photos. It means to convey a message.

It means inspiring other people simply through your photo. And I feel that if you want to model you must know people always try to tell you you aren’t good enough. The thing about it is you are only as good as YOU believe you are and if you let other people control that, you’ll never be able to reach your goals.”

Fine Jewelry: Important Questions to Ask When Picking a Jeweler

By Clara S. Silva

Not quite sure how to go about buying an engagement ring? Well, the first step is identifying a trustworthy jeweler.

Purchasing fine jewelry is unlike making any other purchase, including big-ticket items such major appliances or cars. Fine jewelry and precious stones, such as diamonds and gems, have a unique language involving style and quality, even during their marketing and sale.

It’s almost impossible for an untrained eye to fully appreciate a given stone’s quality.

Moreover, most of us only buy fine jewelry a few times in our lives, yet it is these moments that hold the most emotional significance. It is therefore important that you find a trustworthy jeweler as a first step. Such a significant purchase should not be left to chance.

Keep the following in mind when picking a jeweler.

The relationship matters

When looking for the right engagement ring, the best place to start is the relationship. Of course we’re talking about your relationship with your jeweler, seeing as you’ve got your personal relationship covered.

1. Is the jeweler a good listener?

Good jewelers will:

· Show you a variety of different rings but assist you in whittling down your options.

· Listen to you. They don’t focus on one thing, such as price, or push their own agenda.

· Focus on the bride – her desires, her needs, and her style.

2. Does the jeweler have the right credentials and a good reputation?

Go for a jeweler you can develop a long-term relationship with. Do some research on the jeweler’s reputation and find out how long the store has been in business. A well-established jeweler, such as Leo Hamel, will not only have good references, but will also be around long enough to provide ring maintenance services, even 10 years later when you need a special anniversary gift.

3. Does the jeweler offer a wide variety services?

Well-established and reputed jewelers typically offer a wide variety of services to help you in selecting your ring and to help you with any needs that may come up down the road. Look for the following:

· Jewelers that offer design custom pieces.

· A bench jeweler – they resize and repair jewelry.

· An in-house gemologist with sufficient training in the properties of precious and semi-precious stones. They can help you find the perfect stone based on your budget and style.

4. Does the store offer a wide selection?

It is important that the jeweler offers plenty of styles of rings from which to select, and some guidance as well. A good jeweler will make sure you don’t walk away feeling overwhelmed.

5. How knowledgeable is the jeweler?

When you’re dealing with a well-established jeweler, all the staff members in the store should be able to answer your questions easily and confidently, or direct you to someone in the store who can. This is most likely to happen if you pick a jeweler that specializes in fine jewelry and loose diamonds. All your questions matter, so don’t be afraid to walk away from a salesman that refuses to answer some of your questions.

Beauty: The Most Reliable Stretch Mark Removal Treatment, Cream, Laser or Surgery?

By Nikhita Banta

Over the years, you and I have become more conscious about our appearance. Nowadays, not only women care much about their outward form, but men too have become watchful of it.

Stretch marks are our one such common concern, which may wary in magnitude for both genders. Often referred to as striae by the experts, stretch marks are results of rapid extension of dermis, the inner layer of the skin that maintains shape and elasticity.

It is a form of scarring that appears on the skin when the dermis is stretched beyond its tolerance level, causing the skin’s connective fibers to break, hampering the collagen production. The hormonal changes associated majorly with pregnancy promote stretch marks in women.

While in men, they are impacted by brisk weight gain from body building.

Being a significant source of agitation, professionals have come up with remedies to combat these visible marks. Let us brief you about each of them in order to help you take a better decision.

LASER TREATMENT:

For removing stretch marks using LASER, a concentrated light beam is focused on the thin skin layers surrounding the stretch marks.

An exciplex laser, which is a form of UV laser, is used for this purpose. Rather than imposing any physical damage to the affected areas of the skin tissues, this high intensity UV light unsettles the molecular bonds in them.

Following the laser therapy, the treated area will be sore and sensitive because of the removal of blemished skin. Temporary blistering may appear but absolute healing will take place in not more than few weeks.

In majority cases, this treatment has proven to be highly potent without any known side effects.

· Risks: On being exposed to laser, skin tissues suffer some amount of erosion. Therefore, a fumbled laser handling can cause permanent peripheral tissue damage.

Also, acutely rooted marks may not disappear completely, although their visibility can be minimized to a great extent.

· Benefits: Its efficacy is the most crucial benefit of a laser stretch mark treatment. Further, the excimer laser used to treat patients is controllably safe.

And finally, the entire drill has comparative lower cost with less recovery time and fewer complications.

ORGANIC TREATMENT:

Using prescribed lotions and creams and following recommended exercises and dietary regulations form the most conventional stretch mark removal treatment. These days, there is an entire range of cosmetic products available, which includes a wide variety of stretch mark removal creams in itself.

These products catalyze the fading process of fresh stretch marks, leaving them barely visible on your skin.

· Risks: Since there are numerous topical products available which profess to remove stretch marks, there is a high chance of goof. This means that out of all these creams and lotions, majority may just be futile.

Worse still, possibly some of these products may contain toxic ingredients causing serious health issues among buyers.

· Benefits: Almost all the natural stretch mark removal merchandises are generally more affordable than other intense dermatology procedures and therapies. They also do not require any clinical prescription as they are non-surgical.

Moreover, they can be easily availed at both, online and offline stores and you can opt for known brands, such as Dermology stretch mark cream, as they are less likely to pose any threat to your skin.

SURGICAL TREATMENT:

Even though stretch marks are not a health hazard, yet they continue to instil mental insecurity in most people. For patients who want these marks completely taken off their bodies, surgical treatment serves them the best.

While natural and laser therapies will only fade stretch marks by concealing them, a surgery will completely eliminate them. By far tummy tuck is the only successful surgical method to remove stretch marks.

Medically referred to as abdominoplasty, tummy tuck can so far treat only the mid to lower abdominal areas, by tightening the abdominal muscles to remove excessive skin flab.

· Risks: It is a major surgery which requires spending about three to five hours on anaesthesia, in the operation theatre. As it is a full-fledged surgical procedure, it comes with its corresponding risks of infection. It may even cause simultaneous lung and heart complications due to clots.

Since the results are assured, surgical treatment for stretch marks removal is way expensive than the non-surgical methods.

· Benefits: A tummy tuck remarkably improves posture as tightening abdominal muscles in the procedure will make the spine more supported. Thus, the patient can then stand up straighter with an improved posture. Although, complete recovery may take several weeks, but the end results make the patients confident and less insecure about their appearance.

Just as a coin has two faces likewise, all these treatments come along with their respective pros and cons. For example, a surgery may sound appealing due to its effectiveness, however, it is upon the patient to decide whether or not is it worthy enough to overlook the cons and focus only on the pros.

Plus, a detailed discussion with your surgeon in this case would settle your dilemma. Before landing on any conclusion, get informed in your specific case, prioritize your needs and then decide.




Beauty: 7 Perfect Night Time Routine for Bright and Youthful-Looking Skin

Maintaining the bright and youthful appearance of the skin can be quite a challenge, especially after a certain age.

However, it is not impossible to reach such an objective, with the development of a night time routine being of great help. If you are used to just getting home and going to bed straight away, without taking care of your skin, it is time to make a change. You need to develop your very own night time routine and learn how to properly look after your skin.

Years later, you will be thankful for the decisions you have taken in the present.

#1 Skin Cleansing

During the day, a lot of debris accumulates on the surface of our skin, including from makeup and dead cells. If you do not cleanse your skin before going to bed, it should come as no surprise that you will wake up with bags under eyes in the morning.

Instead, you should try this first step of your nighttime routine and use a cleanser that matches your skin type. Use this product according to the instructions and clean your skin, so that it can breathe and rejuvenate itself during the night.

#2 Toner as the next step

You might expect that toner is recommended only for morning use but, in reality, you can benefit a lot from using this product at night as well. The most important thing that you need to remember is that the toner can enhance your complexion, helping you deal with potential problems at the same time.

Once again, you have to make sure that the toner matches your skin type. For example, if you have oily skin, you should use a product especially recommended for such a complexion.

Such products are more astringent, and they eliminate the excess sebum production from the level of the skin.

#3 Moisturizer for night time hydration

No matter how tired you are, you should never skip over moisturizer. During the night, the skin goes through a rejuvenation process, once that is essential for the maintenance of its youthful appearance. If the skin is dry, then this repair process will be impaired.

A moisturizer recommended for night time is rich in texture, having both hydrating and nourishing properties at the level of the skin.

#4 Exfoliation on a weekly basis

Even though this is not part of the daily nighttime routine, it should not be considered as less important. If you are battling with a dull complexion, it is recommended to give exfoliation a try, at least once a week. The best moment to exfoliate your skin is right before going to bed so that it can heal and rejuvenate itself while you sleep.

You can either use store-bought products or prepare a homemade scrub in the comfort of your home, depending on preferences. What matters is that you will wake up looking fantastic, with a beautiful, healthy glow at the level of the skin.

#5 Rejuvenation serums for skin rejuvenation & brightening

The rejuvenation of the skin is a serious matter and one that best takes place during the night, while you get your sleep. For this reason, it is recommended to consider using rejuvenation serums on a daily basis. These contain active ingredients, such as peptides and different enzymes, helping you enjoy the youthful appearance of the skin, for as long as it is possible.

What matters is that you purchase only top quality products, as these have the best ingredients to offer.

#6 Try a facial mask at least once a week

Facial masks can help you get rid of a dull complexion and look fantastic once more. They can be used on all skin types and, if you do not have the time to get to the store, you can easily prepare one at home, using only natural ingredients. Facial masks are known for their intensely hydrating and nourishing properties, with each of the ingredients serving a different purpose.

Some of them are meant to rejuvenate the skin, while others have a soothing effect, reducing redness and irritation.

#7 Use serums with antioxidants

The constant exposure to the UV rays, including when it is cloudy outside, does a lot of damage to the skin, leading to premature aging. If you want to maintain the young-looking appearance of the skin, you need to include antioxidant serums in your night time routine.

These can repair the damage done by free radicals, reducing the visibility of fine lines and wrinkles. They contain active ingredients, such as vitamin C and resveratrol, being able to repair cell damage and brighten the skin at the same time.

What matters is that you choose a serum that suits your skin type, as there are many products that contain substances with irritating properties (especially for those with sensitive skin).

These are the steps that you need to follow, to develop a highly-efficient night time routine. As you have seen, if you want to maintain the youthful appearance of the skin, you cannot go straight to bed. You have to cleanse, tone and moisturize, just to name a few. You might also want to consider using top-quality anti-aging products, such as Bella Serata.

This anti-aging cream has an age-defying formula, and it can help you maintain the youthful appearance of the skin for a genuinely prolonged period.
