Mercer: Saving on haircuts and salon services

* Forgetting to wash make-up brushes: It’s one of those jobs you know you should do but just can’t be bothered about. If you fail to give your brushes a good clean then not only will you have mixed colours, you are also allowing bacteria to build up. Aim to give your brushes a clean once a week. * Neglecting neck: As part of your daily skin care routine, do you cleanse and moisturise your neck? Thought not. Don’t stop at your chin, make sure you carry on and take care of the thin, delicate skin on your neck. This area can be prone to sensitivity so it is really important to look after it. * Over-treating and over-covering spots: It’s too easy to apply every spot cream you have to your face as soon as you have a breakout, but don’t. They work on your skin for hours so make sure you always follow the pack instructions to the letter.

Show-biz gals spill hair-care secrets

감곡매괴성당 (9)

Salon professionals know better, partly because we get a really close look our clients’ hair — sure, it smells great and, maybe, the overall shape is nice but close inspection tells a different story. We see it all the time. The great news: we can get noticeable, even striking, results with just a small change in how we clean our hair. A problem with buildup on hair is that it can be cumulative and insidious. We gradually ‘accept’ our hair for what it has become, including the chemical buildup that we didn’t know about. You need to periodically use a clarifying shampoo that will wash out all the oils and chemical buildup, some of which comes from those hair products on the shelf at home. Those products aren’t bad. We love those products, the sprays, gels and even shampoos that give our hair body, shape and shine. But some of that benefit can leave a residue. In addition, chemicals in the tap water, particularly hard water, and whatever is in our diet, including medications, can also add to buildup on hair, which can leave locks looking dull, limp and greasy, even stiff and crusty feeling. That residue can also have a profound effect on how new treatments, including hair coloring, take hold.

Hair Argan Oil Cream Care For Extremely Dry Hair

Hair Care For Extremely Dry Hair

But there’s no reason to worry. Most of these problems can be dealt with a good sunscreen and a good cleansing routine. Also, eat lots of fresh fruits and vegetables (rich in beta-carotene – carrots, spinach, lettuce, tomatoes, broccoli, watermelon, etc.) and drink lots of water during the summer. Wash your face thrice a day. It’s better to use mild face washes instead of cleansing milk in this weather. However, you can combine milk with ingredients like almond meal and rose water to make a balancing skin cleanser. A much better approach is to use a cleanser and/or moisturiser with an alpha-hydroxy acid, such as glycolic acid or lactic acid. Don’t give up on moisturisers entirely in the summers but use a lighter, oil-free formulation in the summer. Always use a sunscreen SPF at least 25+. Apply 20 minutes before you go into the sun to allow your skin time to absorb it. Re-apply as needed throughout the day, particularly after a swim.

Hair Care for Men

Hair Care for Men

I know, as the wife of a youth minister, that even teens these days frequently pay for cuts, dyes and styling that would not be figured into the $35,000 calculation for this study, which began calculating with 25-year-olds! So how much do you spend on hair care? Take a look at the receipts from last year — if you still have them. If you dont, wait another week or two and then look back at your receipts from the first quarter of 2014. How much did you spend on hair care? Factor in the shampoos, styling products and any services you have paid for since the year began. If you are surprised at the amount you are spending, resolve to do something differently! Here are a few options. First, if you are sold on a certain hair styling product, consider changing what you use for a while. Take a month and try something new — maybe a product from the grocery store or a big-box store.

Skin and hair care for Summer

Summer

Using your fingertips, gently massage the shampoo into the scalp and hair and then rinse thoroughly with warm water. Conditioning should be the next step in your hair care routine. Begin by applying a quarter to half-dollar size amount of conditioner into the hair and leave it in for a few minutes. After the time is up, rinse the hair thoroughly and pat hair dry with a soft towel. The final step in your hair care routine is combing. Combing instead of brushing will prevent damaged hair and be less likely to tangle no matter what your hair length may be. Using a wide-tooth comb start with the ends of your hair in a downward motion, working your way up to the roots until hair is smooth. Now your hair is ready for styling. If you prefer there are numerous styling products available on the market. Styling gels, creams and mousses are just a few to name.

Hair care

If you dont wash your hair regularly, the natural oil produced by the skin on the scalp solidifies along the hair shaft providing it with a greasy protection. This isnt a bad idea but it traps dust, odour and pollution, making the hair smell and losing its natural shiny brightness. How often should I wash my scalp? Wash daily, once each day, for about two minutes with a gentle shampoo to minimise clogged pores and other scalp problems. One good wash should be sufficient. Also, exfoliate weekly once or twice per week. How do I avoid a dry scalp? One of the ways of avoiding a dry scalp is by avoiding too much hot water. Hot water strips essentials oils from the skin and causes dryness. Wash hair in lukewarm water to help retain those essential oils. Can I use a hair shampoo, or is it meant for only women?
