Simple and Easy Steps to Look Younger at any Age

17 Jun

look younger

We have been looking for the secret of youth forever. Many have tried countless techniques over the years and some have never worked and those that do can help you look younger with consistent effort. The key is implementing long-term healthy lifestyle and eating habits.

We can’t stop the natural change in our body, but we can still look younger if we want to work hard to slow down the aging process.

Therefore, people tell me all the time I look 10-15 years younger than I am.  Here are my success tips to looking younger:

Detox

It’s important to start detoxification, getting rid of toxin from our body. Our body metabolism has done that process, but in everyday life, we are exposed to so many chemical hazards from air, food, and the environment. Fasting or just consuming fruits and vegetables are natural ways to detoxify our body. And of course one of the best ways to detox is to consume all natural smoothies.

Sleep

Having enough sleep at least 6-8 hours a day will make your skin healthier. Having a good sleep is also important because growth hormones are working during that time. It renews the old cells of our body, including the skin cells. Our skin will look fresh and young if we have enough sleep.

Food

Eating healthy and safe food every day will make our body fit, slim and also look younger. Try to eat more fish instead of red meat. Fiber food, vegetables, fruits, and supplements are important foods to consume. I drink no caffeine and drink significant amounts of water to stay hydrated during the day.

Exercise

Through routine exercise, you will feel happier, energetic, and confident. It also increases our bone density and muscle which can make our body look 15-20 years younger. Beside aerobic, walking, and swimming and going to the gym to do light lifting exercise.

Relax

By trying to be relaxed, our face will look younger. Stress and worries appear on our face. If we can manage our stress and feel at peace, our face will look younger and attractive.

Be Positive

A positive mind and affirmations have been said can bring positive life to us. Negative thought tends to bring failure and make us look older and unattractive. Daily prayer and meditation will do wonders for your mental age.

Medical Check-up

Just like a car, our body also needs attention and care so it can work well every day. Having routine medical checkups are important to recognize diseases as soon as possible.

Active Life

Always try to be active as activities can increase health; and if you are in your elder age, your memory will increase too.

Social Life

Happy social life can increase our spirit, bring peaceful mind, and make us feel and look younger. Communication with our friends, family, neighbors, colleagues, and others can bring happiness to us.

Physical Balance

Start to look at our physical appearance. Is our body weight ideal for us? If not, try to fix that to the best ideal weight. Also look to the skin, hair, nail, and teeth. Those are important as they will show our age. Maintaining great hygiene improves how you look.

How to look slimmer in your clothes

16 Jun

slimmerWe all want to look our best, whether we’re short and slim or tall and heavier. Here are a few tips I’ve collected for plus size women that will help us look our best. Here is your guide on how you can make your attire make you look slimmer.

Pants

Choose pants that are long enough for you. If your pants are too short, it visually cuts the length of your legs. The longer your legs look, the slimmer they’ll appear.

Also choose pants that fit you well, not too tight or clingy. Fabrics that are too thin tend to cling to your legs and reveal bumps we’d rather keep out of sight.

Choose pants that are either boot cut, wider legged or flared at the bottom. The boot cut is slimming, while the wider cuts also add a slimming effect by keeping a visual straight line from our hips to our ankles. The worst choice would be a tight, tapered pant leg bottom as this enhances the width of your hips and thighs.

Capri pants are very slimming as well if they’re the right length. Choose a style where the bottom of the pant ends a few inches above your ankles but below the widest part of your calves.

Skirts

Choose skirts that rest just above your knees. A mid-calf skirt cuts the length of your legs and draws eyes to the thickest part of your lower legs.

Again, proper fit is key here. Something too tight will visually enhance and draw attention to bulges that we’d rather not publicize. Also look for skirts that fit below the waistline if you have a thick waist.

Bras

A well-fitted bra is a must for every woman. Not only to give support and comfort, but a too tight bra can pop out those back rolls like nobody’s business!

If your cup size is not too large, consider trying a sports bra for a comfier fit that has adequate support. No wires here ladies!

Colors

Choose darker colors for areas you don’t want the eyes to focus on and brighter colors for places you want to accentuate. Darker colors such as black and navy are very slimming and should be in every woman’s closet.

Dressing from head to toe in one color is also very slimming as it makes a person look taller. Matching your pantyhose to the color of your shoes and skirts helps achieve this look.

Patterns

Stay away from large patterns and look for vertical stripes – thin is best. Thin stripes help give the illusion of length. Adding length helps give the illusion of a longer body, which helps you look thinner. Small, delicate prints can also be very flattering.

Fit

If your clothing is too tight, it accentuates and magnifies all flaws. If our clothing is too loose and baggy, we think we’re hiding our size but the opposite actually happens: we magnify our size.

So many tips to keep in mind when shopping for new clothes! But the key points to remember are proper fit and visually lengthening fashions. We have so many options now in plus size fashions that we can find exactly what works best for our body types.

Choosing the Right Summer Handbag

10 Jun

Summer Handbags

Some women have handbags for each day of the week and seem to be toting a different one every time they go out. No matter whether you’re looking for one or two understated purses, or if you’d prefer to have a dedicated handbag room full of loud, stylized satchels, there are a few simple rules when buying a new handbag or just selecting from your existing panoply of purses.

As with clothes, different handbags suit different women with different body types. If you see someone carrying a purse that you absolutely must have this second, think about it for a bit before rushing off to visit Coach; will that handbag fit your body type, or did it look good because of the person carrying it? If you’re tall and thin, it may not make sense to get a cute and tiny purse that you saw a shorter girl carrying, as it may serve to make you look bigger.

Buy a Bag that Fits Your Body Size

If you’re small and petite, then it’s important to give some thought to the proportion of a bag carried by a taller woman and may look oversized on your smaller frame. If you’re trying to draw attention towards or away from a particular attribute, ensure that you get a bag that hangs at that body level, as eyes will be drawn wherever your handbag sits.

It’s important to give some practical thought to your handbag if you carry very few items on a daily basis, it’s not important to have a massive bag with dozens of pockets. But at the same time, if you’re a higher-maintenance gal, a tiny one-pocket purse crammed full of essentials is going to wind up looking like a shopping bag!

Look for Affordable Quality

Quality is essential as well as good materials, and good construction will yield a bag with good structure, keeping it from flopping and sagging, showing bulges from its contents, and of course, a good bag will last longer.

If you like having a lot of handbags to choose from, you may be more able to play with summer colors, prints, and styles in all kinds of funky materials but if you’re a one or two-purse girl, stick with leather or even suede in neutral colors so that you can get the highest quality and the most versatility from your purse-buying buck.

Regardless of what kind of purse women you are or what kind of bag you’re looking for, enjoy the shopping experience, but make sure you think ahead to what that bag will look like with your other outfits.

How to Purchase a Handbag or Purse that Compliment Your Figure

Purchase a Handbag or Purse that Compliment Your Figure

For most of us women, we buy handbags because we like the way it looks and we find them in design or style that suits our taste. But if you think about it a handbag that fits your figure will be appealing and make you look slimmer or more stylish. You should purchase bags that compliment your figure. When you buy a handbag, you need to think of it as if you are buying a pair of jeans. You need the right fit.

The right handbag could flatter your figure, or it could ruin the entire ensemble you have assembled if it seems to be out of place for your particular image. When it comes to choosing any specific bag for that matter, your shape is a significant consideration. You need to select a bag shape that is opposite your body type.

The Tall and Thin Woman

As an example, for someone who is very thin and tall a round hobo bag (explained here) would compliment your figure. This style slouchy kind of rounded bag compliments taller women.

The Short and Stout Woman

For those who may be stout and short, clutches that are rectangular and long or tall would suit well. However, while a bag’s shape should be opposite your body type the bag’s size needs to be in proportion to your size or figure. It wouldn’t look appealing to someone with a large figure to be carrying a very cute and small shoulder bag for then it would emphasize how big she is.

Think about Buying a Bag that Compliments your Shape

In the same way, a small or short girl carrying a very big handbag spells disaster. The huge size of the bag would make her look more short and small. Certain bags like a shoulder bag, for example, could accentuate a figure depending on the length of the strap. A shoulder bag that would be around the hips would give definition and draw attention to your curvaceous hips.

Some Important Tips

  1. When buying handbags be patient and take time to try them on.
  2. Looking at yourself in the mirror just as if you are trying on clothes.
  3. Don’t be drawn to trendy bags that do not look good on you.
  4. No matter how great looking the bag will be it wouldn’t do any good if it doesn’t fit you nor flatter you in any way.

Get your drink on ladies a handbag that dispenses wine?

27 Mar

A Wine Dispensing Handbag?

dispenses winedispenses wine

Hey Ladies,

I came across this very different fashion accessory. A handbag that has a compartment that allows you to put wine in your handbag and then a pop out spigot that dispenses wine or other beverage. Crazy but was featured on USA today. For those more discerning women maybe water or ice tea can also be put in it. But is that any fun.

The Perfect Order To Apply Makeup

26 Mar

apply makeup

 

When you need to apply makeup, it will help to apply in a certain order, especially if you are untrained and doing it for yourself at home. To get the perfect balance right, apply makeup in a specific order of product, which will allow you to build and blend to create a flawless finish:

Step One: Eyeshadow

Always start by applying eyeshadow, as the loose powder can sometimes spill on to the cheeks if you are using a wide, soft brush (and you really should be using a wide, soft brush rather than the applicators that come with eyeshadows).

Step Two: Eyeliner and Mascara

As these two products are the most difficult to get right – just having an unsteady hand can derail the look – it’s easier to apply these before you put facial make up on, just in case you go wrong and need to remove them to have another try. Trying to remove eye make up without displacing foundation is tricky, so get the difficult eye products out of the way first.

Step Three: Liquid foundation / concealer.

Next, apply your liquid foundation and concealer. Blend thoroughly with a sponge to achieve even, flawless coverage.
(Quick Tip: If you use a primer, obviously apply this before foundation/concealer).

Step Four: Loose facial powder.

Choose a color close to your natural skin tone and remove the ‘shine’ that foundation and concealer can cause, using a large round brush in circular motions.

Step Six: Blusher

Smile so the apples of your cheek are most prominent, then apply blusher sparingly.

Step Seven: Lipstick and lipliner

Put the finishing touches in place, and you’re ready to go.

Making Products Work For Those With Pale Skin

26 Mar

Pale Skin

If you have light, pale skin, it can be an absolute nightmare trying to find facial make up products that suit your tone. For many women, even the lightest shade in make up ranges is often too dark or too orange-colored. Despite this being a continued problem for literally thousands of people, it is an issue that the cosmetics industry has failed to target. Although specific makeup lines for people with pale skin do exist, they tend to be pricey or sacrifice quality of the product in the hopes that the lightness of color will be reason enough for people to buy.

Address the Pale Skin Issue

There are a couple of ways of getting around the problem. First, you could try using a facial bronzer. Used sparingly, a bronzer will add enough color to your face to allow you to use normal foundations and concealers, though the effect can be patchy if not blended thoroughly. There’s also the issue of having your facial skin tone match the rest of your body, and if you cannot be bothered to fully self-tan regularly, this isn’t an option.

It is worth trying to ‘dilute’ the color of a facial make up the product, to make it paler and therefore more suitable for your skin tone. Remove some of the normal product from its tube or tub, and then mix in a white facial moisturizer. This should spread the pigment of the foundation around, and make the overall effect appear lighter and more suitable. Just remember that you may need to use extra face powder, as the added moisturizer may make your face appear shinier than normal.
