Look Younger Instantly

There are some things in life that get better with age (wine, cheese, and George Clooney, to name a few). Generally speaking, however, we’d like our skin and hair to look as young as possible—or at least be an accurate reflection of how we feel on the inside. In our never-ending quest for the fountain of youth, makeup artists for the stars give out some secrets.

When it comes to skin, luminosity and dewiness signify youth. Use a creamy luminiser or highlighter on the bridge of your nose and tops of your cheekbones for fresh, dewy skin.

Keep an eye on your roots, get them touched up regularly to keep the greys away.

Keep your hair vibrant so it doesn’t lose lustre, in between salon trips, keep hair shiny and healthy by applying a hair treatment at lease once a week.

Shape your brows, grooming brows into a pleasing arch opens up the eye area, making eyes seem larger, and gives a visual lift to the entire face.

There are a variety of super-easy tricks to keep you shinning or feel like an instant princess with one of our Special Offers.

Time to Detox

Detoxing, or cleansing, has become a popular way of coping with our stressful, hurried lives. This is a set time, usually from a week to a month, where we juice or avoid specific types of food, in an effort to flush out toxins from our system.

Once a detox is done, a lot of people rush back into their old habits, why not incorporate changes from your detox into your lifestyle and create some new, healthier habits to keep those detox benefits. Though it isn’t always simple to start healthier habits, think about how you felt at the end of your detox. Sleeping better and feeling better, these are things you want to take with you. Have a day or a meal every week where you only eat raw. Buy more fresh foods, whole foods, and add them into your meals. Think about losing some of the chemicals from your household and buying organic versions instead.

Look for little ways to make your lifestyle healthier and more sustainable.

Natural Ways to Transform your Beauty Routine

You don’t need to go further than your kitchen to rejuvenate your skin, soften your hair, and regain that youthful glow.

1) Baking Soda
Do you have oily hair and dandruff? Baking soda helps removes dead skin and oil buildups – without drying out your scalp! Rub a baking soda and water solution into your roots before you get your hair wet. For best results, scrub your entire scalp with your fingertips.

2) Apple Cider Vinegar
Rinse your hair with an apple cider vinegar solution after your regular shampoo routine. Apple cider vinegar returns shine, prevents split-ends, and even reduces frizz and hair-static during dry winter months.

3) Coconut Oil
Do you struggle with frizzy hair and split ends? Coconut oil has a cure for that too. Periodically apply a coconut oil mask to your hair to re-moisturize dry ends, reduce frizz, and even enhance your natural curl pattern.

Project the best version of yourself without spending a fortune.

It’s time to let Santa Shine

Sooner or later we all have to deal with grey hair, at this time of year none of us want to compete with Santa!.

Whether we’re in our twenties, thirties, or forties, that dreaded grey hair will eventually show up and you practically sprint to the salon to get your roots retouched…the cycle has started– and because grey hair has a different type of texture and does not contain the pigments found in non-grey hair, the colour may fade out pretty quickly.  Here are some genius ways to cover up between appointments.

Hide your roots for longer, if you have wavy or curly hair you can get away with grey roots because your hair has more volume, but if you have straight, flat hair, you are going to need a few products to give you a lift such as texturizers and dry shampoos.

Try some root-friendly hairstyles, braids, French twists and any interesting updos you’ve been wanting to try are the way to go. It mixes all the colours together, disguises grey and shows dimension.

From hair “lipstick” to hair “mascara,” there’s an array of temporary cover-up options that are ideal for banishing bits of grey at the roots or along the hairline. A good formula won’t streak in the rain and stays put until you shampoo.

Whether you’re covering them up or letting them shine, you’ll notice that grey hairs tend to be coarser than pigmented hair.  Keep everything under control with a rich conditioner, and use it often.

Of course, you can simply own those silver locks. Though that too requires some maintenance. An occasional dose of color counteracts the brassiness that frequently comes with grey. Swap out your regular shampoo once a week for a tinted version to give your natural colour a punch.

Or change it up and try your favourite colour today!

PLEASE Break These 6 “Hair Care” Rules!

Beware! Some well-meaning practices actually reduce product effectiveness, making hair more difficult to work with.

– Applying product to sopping wet hair. This just dilutes the product making it far less effective. A better option is to blow dry your hair until it’s damp, then apply styling products. For short hair, this rule breaker does not apply.

– Brushing 100 strokes a day. This does NOT help your hair, quite the opposite. It causes breakage and can activate your oil glands making hair greasier. Do brush your hair but don’t go overboard!

– Hair colour damages your hair. Hooey! This may have been true 20 years ago, but today, salon colour is loaded with extra conditioners. Want to colour your hair? Go for it (Box colour is a totally different story!)

– Only thick, dry hair needs deep conditioning. Even fine hair benefits from weekly deep conditioning treatments. The key, like everything, is to get the right formula. Use a protein-based conditioner rather than a moisturising one to keep fine hair healthy, not weighted down.

– Always use a comb on wet hair. Not so. If you mist your hair with a leave-in conditioner or use a few drops of hair oil or serum to coat the hair shaft, it will allow your brush to slide through easily.

– Blow dry from back to front. Start in the front. This is the area people see first, so it makes sense to start there, plus it reduces potential frizz!

Eyeshadows That Make Your Eyes POP!

Blue Eyes: Opt for a shimmery brown if you want high drama. Use a precise line of copper eyeliner and lots of mascara.

Green Eyes: Purple and green are opposites on the colour wheel, but they make your eyes pop when paired together. If purple is a bit too much, then go for a lavender. Your eyes will look crisp and vibrant.

Brown Eyes: For brown eyes, go for a contrasting pale champagne shadow. Line the inside of your lower lash line with cream pencil to enhance the effect. Want to ramp up the volume? Go for a line of charcoal liner and dark grey shadow to enhance your whole look.
Bonus Tip: Take a hairdryer to your eyelash curler before curling your lashes to make them curl better.

The “Switching Shampoos” Myth

No, no, a thousand times no. Hair does not get used to anything!

If you have to switch your shampoo a lot, then it either has too many foaming agents or it has ingredients that are coating your hair.

Got constant flyaways? Then your shampoo is too drying. If your hair is flat, then the shampoo is coating your hair. A good shampoo should do neither!
