6 TIPS FOR GLOWING SKIN

6 TIPS FOR GLOWING SKIN

 

It's true what they say: "Glowing skin is always in." But as much as we might want to have totally radiant skin, sometimes it can be hard to; 1. Achieve it and 2. keep it. For most of us taking time out of our hectic days is hard, so these simple tips are here to help. 

1. STAY HYDRATED
It is pretty crazy how many benefits there are in staying hydrated. Water helps to wash away toxins, transports nutrients and oxygen to the skin cells. We recommend having a drink bottle in your car, handbag, at your work station at work and beside your bed making sure you change the water everyday. There is nothing more important than drinking water, and plenty of it. 

Green or herbal teas are also a great way to add some more antioxidants.

2. EXFOLIATE - I CANNOT STRESS THIS ENOUGH
We often forget how important it is to brush off those dead cells in winter. Yep, moisture can’t get in if the dead cells are sitting on top of your skin. It is important to remove dead skin cells in order to get rid of any dullness. 

YOU COULD TRY; A chemical based glycolic acid wash or peel. Peels can help renew the skin cells, fixing dry skin or enlarged pores and promote brighter skin.

3.HEALTHY DIET

 Eating a healthy, balanced diet is important for having glowing skin. Especially make sure to incorporate foods that have omega-3 fatty acids and antioxidants. These groups will help respectively keep skin supple and smooth, and fight free radical damage.

4. EXERCISE

The post-workout glow is a real thing! Proper exercise helps improve circulation which means more oxygen and nutrients are pumped to skin cells. And healthier skin cells means better-looking skin. Try to schedule your workout for the morning so you have all day to show off your resulting glow.

5. WASH YOUR FACE WITH LUKEWARM WATER
There is nothing better than a steaming hot shower in winter, but when you can, particularly when you are just washing your face or hands, chose lukewarm water to avoid stripping away all the natural oils from your skin.


6. GET ENOUGH SLEEP

Lastly, lack of sleep is certainly something that can make skin appear sallow and dull. To help skin hold on to its natural glow, make sure to get at least seven hours of sleep each night. 

 

Small changes to your day to day routine can be just the trick.

TAKE ME TO THE BALL

TAKE ME TO THE BALL

It's fast approaching so we have gathered our top tips to help you get ball ready.

 

1.  THE DRESS - Like DUH. Gone are the days of getting dresses made out of two tone shiny satin fabric, midriff on show and long to the ground. The times have changed. Now the days of buying off the rack is acceptable. From the likes of Sass and Bide to Zimmermann your parents spending hundreds of dollars on a dress is said to be the norm. 

Alas - Parents can fret no more. Designer hire is a thing. Top labels at affordable prices. Wear once and send back. No more looking longingly at wasted money hanging in the closet never to be worn again. I mean you could sell online to get less than half of the original money paid. 

So check it out with some many designer hire platforms out there you options are endless. We recommend treasureboxx...

 2. THE MAKE-UP - As youtube continues to grow most girls or friends of friends out their hands up to do their own make up or help out . I don't blame you as I am sure that spending hundreds on school balls wasn't what your parents has planned on. 

Back when I was at school you matched the dress colour with the eyeshadow #roadhazzard #whatwerewethinking

Our tip. Make sure the make up is natural. Think 5 years down the track. 

3. THE TAN - In my day - we tanned ourselves. With our hands. NO TANNING MITS. You had to make sure you tanned yourself a few days before to allow time for the tan to wash off your hands. 

Now the preference is to get a spray tan. Standing naked in a disposable g-string baring all, fearing the fridge temperature tan. Our tip. If you are getting a tan from a Salon. Get a practice. Just in case you come out an undesirable colour - as there are no tips or tricks to remove a fresh tan than to wait it out.

Ohhh and make sure you exfoliate before you tan there is nothing worse than flakey tanned skin...

We recommend Sunescape or Bondi. We promise you wont turn out like a orange. 

4. THE JEWELLERY - I never wore jewellery to any of the balls I attended. Maybe due to annoyance. Looking back now our dresses really spoke  for themselves along side our makeup we really didn't need another element added. 

With jewellery making a huge mark on fashion these days. So many trends currently on fashion catwalks, inspired by fashion bloggers and street style make sure your jewellery is on par with a ball not a trend. Our tip. As it's matching back to a ball style don't break the bank. Lovisa provides beautiful pieces at affordable prices so who cares if you wear it once. 

5. THE DATE - Best advise we can give. Take a friend. You'll never regret it. 

WHY BUY WHEN YOU CAN RENT ...

WHY BUY WHEN YOU CAN RENT ...

DRESSING for the for any event these days need not break the bank with great designer rental businesses around New Zealand booming.

But what is your best bet when weighing up the options on whether to rent or buy?

Hiring / borrowing a dress/ playsuit or accessory gives people the opportunity to look different and change up their look without it costing an arm and leg. It also gives access to designers and labels that they may not necessarily be able to afford to buy. 

The growth in the popularity of designer rentals is also in part due to the increase in women showcasing their looks on social media and then not wanting to be seen in the same thing twice.

Never being seen in the same outfit twice is like an unwritten notion between woman. Especially at weddings, 21st and engagements (weekend after weekend) therefore hiring an outfit at a fraction of the retail price allows the user to change up their look for each occasion. 

More and more people are becoming savvy with their money and renting dresses via websites, facebook, instagram and "try ons" instead of spending $$$ on a one off outfit to then sell on eBay or trademe and NEVER getting the original amount back.

So next time you are looking for something special to wear remember you can rent/hire.
