Hair Straighteners - Which Are The Best

Hair Straighteners - Which Are The Best by Scotie Keithlow


With the trend moving towards straight hair, many women yearn for the straight hair look. But if you are not lucky to have straight hair naturally, you need not fret because there are many hair straightening options that you can choose from.

Depending on how frizzy your hair is, you may want to choose one of these options.
Thermal reconditioning is a permanent method that is likely to take about 6 months to show the final results. This method uses chemical ingredients and therefore provides great results.

But as with all chemical options, this is not really recommended for those who have hair that is thin, brittle or damaged. This should also never be the first option that you choose since you may not really like the look that you have and may want to go back to your natural style.

Ion Hair Restructuring is a method that was invented in Japan and is becoming popular these days. The technology used is complex and uses a method that infuses ions into the follicles of the hair. This process changes the basic structure of the molecules of the hair.

This treatment takes a long time and can only be done in professional salons. However, the outcomes are long lasting and very flattering.

Blow dry is a method that can be used by almost anyone and can be done at home. It involves a simple, but time taking action of brushing your hair multiple times while drying them. This is an amateurish way of straightening hair and unlike the Sedu hair straighteners can never really straighten hair completely.

Hair irons are the most favored of the hair straightening methods and the Sedu hair straighteners have been the most popular. Made of two metallic or ceramic plates, these can be use by anyone in the comfort of the home. And these special Sedu hair straighteners are made to release a concentration of negative ions that helps faster straightening.

The Sedu hair straighteners also heat up almost immediately and therefore save a lot of time and electricity in the process. The manner in which you should use a Sedu hair straightener is simple. Shampoo your hair and condition it well.

Make sure to apply adequate levels of serum. Take a small portion of your hair and place it between the two plates of the Sedu hair straightener.

Applying some pressure, work your way down and let the hair come out of the plates. So not stop till the ends of the hair have also gone through the plates of the Sedu hair straightener. On hair that is relatively frizzier, you may need to run the Sedu hair straightener a couple of times.

Make sure that you choose the right temperature on the Sedu hair straightener to get the best results

The Signs of Aging Eyes and How to Treat Them

The Signs of Aging Eyes and How to Treat Them by Amy Noyes

The skin on our face is surprisingly durable, tough, resilient skin. But the thin, delicate skin surrounding our eyes on the other hand is extremely delicate.

Because the skin of the eye area is thin and less resilient, it happens to be where the first effects of aging skin, sun and stress give way.

The skin around our eyes is fragile due in part to minimal cushion or subcutaneous fat beneath the skin that would give it added support, and as a result the first signs of age often appear here in the form of fine lines and wrinkles.

Along with the typical wrinkles, blood vessels begin to show through the ultra thin transparency of the eye skin, increasing the likelihood of dark circles.

As we grow older, the first things we notice about our aging eyes are wrinkles, under-eye bags, puffiness, and dark circles.

With each year another candle is added to the birthday cake and it seemingly reveals more visible signs of aging.

It would just be so wonderful if we stopped adding the candles to the cake, and magically the signs of aging stopped too.

Even better, what if by taking a few candles off the cake we could miraculously reverse aging that has already occurred.
Unfortunately, the aging process is not so simple and it doesn't quite work this way.

But the good news is there are ways to improve and help prevent our issues with our aging skin, without cosmetic surgery.

There are professional anti- aging eye creams and skin care products that amazingly revive the look of tired aging eyes and skin.
Below are some key ingredients to look for in anti-aging eye creams that target a specific aging concern.

To lift, tighten and smooth wrinkles and puffiness look for active ingredients such as: caffeine, alcohol, retinol, alpha-hydroxy acids (AHA), copper peptides, and vitamin C to tighten skin and stimulate collagen growth.

To diminish and correct dark circles look for products with ingredients such as: vitamin K, kojic acid, and hydroquinone to reduce tiny vessels from leaking and to lighten skin.

Be aware, eye creams are similar to birthday candles; they do not simply perform miracles on their own.

Good genes play a leading role in how well our skin ages, and unfortunately some of us have the misfortune of inheriting dark circles or predisposed wrinkle genes from our parents. But, we cannot go blaming it all on our parents quite yet.

Our lifestyle and habits such as sun exposure, smoking, poor diet, too much alcohol and lack of exercise all play supporting roles in causing wrinkles, eye puffiness, and dark circles.

When you practice healthy living and anti-aging skin care management you will defy nature, age gracefully and look forward to the extra candle on the cake.

Beauty Tips and Lip Plumping

Beauty Tips and Lip Plumping by Robin Brain

Lip have been the most important part of a woman's beauty since past. Every girl today admires one or the other actresses in the Hollywood and wishes to have lips like theirs. These actresses have a specialty of having protruded lips or full lips.

Every girl wishes to have these full lips. These lips increase the beauty of their lips and make them more kissable and lustrous. Moreover they apply cosmetic to their lips to make them further more beautiful.

Cosmetics like lip gloss, lipsense, lip pencil, etc are used for this purpose. Lip gloss moisturizes the lips and make them prevents them from dryness.

Some lip glosses which contain oil also provides shininess to the lips and make them look more beautiful and lustrous. Lipsense imparts a semi permanent color to the lips and make them look attractive.

Unlike the normal lip stick, lip sense penetrates the epidermal layer of the lips and the color becomes more effective and does not smear off easily. Lip pencil is a cosmetic which outlines the lip line and distinguish the shape of the lips on the face of the woman.

Woman who do not have full lips naturally can adopt one of the techniques used for making lips into full lips like lip augmentation, lip coloring, lip implants etc. but these techniques have their own side effects.

Thankfully a technique called lip augmentation has been introduced recently. Through this technique one can achieve fuller lips easily and that too without any side effects. More over, it does not alter the look of the lips and makes them look as natural as they were before applying the technique. A great plumper is a must for effective plumping of lips.

Lips plumper which contain harsh drying agents are strictly not suggested. Hydration is very important to keep the lip plump. A lot of water should be drunk from time to time to keep the lips wet and moisturized. While applying the plumper, the mouth should be opened as wide as it can be so that the plumper does not creates cracks on the lips.

But they should not be over opened because it will result in the formation of blisters on the lips. They actually inject the plumping agent into the skin of the lips and make them protrude. Though they do not have any side effects but then also they should be applied carefully
