NATURAL NAIL CARE

It is important that a woman’s hands always look their best. Women however, are not unique in their need for well-groomed hands. Te well dressed man conducting a business meeting during which attention is drawn, even inadvertently, to bitten, ragged, or dirty nails is conveying a subtle message of inconsistency or of failure to pay attention to detail. All people are at least initially judged by their appearance.

The importance of having well-manicured nails and hands has become a significant part of our culture for both men and women.

Nail care, like hair design is a science, a service and an art. Nail care can be an extra service you provide to your client or it can be creative specialty. Since women compose an ever-growing portion of the workforce it is better to take best care of it. The purpose of a nail service is to improve the appearance of the hands and, in particular the nails

It is also important to consider the natural shapes of your nails because this enhances the overall appearance of your hands, in choosing the nail length and polish color, what you do with your hands each day and of course your wishes.

 

ARTIFICIAL NAIL CARE

Artificial nails are used to improve the appearance of one’s nails and help to conceal broken nails. Some nails are too thin or weak to grow to the length the client may desire. These clients are no longer doomed to wearing their nails short forever. This alternative is something that will give you the opportunity to have truly lovely hands.

Artificial nails can be applied over a plastic tip or created directly on the nail. Prior to an artificial nail service, a basic manicure should be performed up to but not including the base coat.

Artificial nail can go wrong if your natural nail is not given the chance to breathe which can cause a discoloration found between the nail plate and artificial nail referred to as mold, but its actually a bacterial infection caused by pseudomonas aeruginosa, a bacteria occurring naturally on the skin. In favorable conditions, such as a lack of oxygen, the bacteria grow unrestrained and causes an infection which leads to discoloration of the nail.

After each artificial nail leave your nails for 2weeks before another is done, during this period of rest have your manicure done and use a base coat and clear top coat only.

SUMMER MAKE-UP TIPS

Summer is a season full of pleasures, filled with so much outdoor fun, but melting makeup, sliding eyeliner, sticky lipstick is no fun at all!.
In this hot weather applying your makeup should be simple.

1. Make time for primer: Primer provides a smooth base for whatever goes next on your face. It is incredibly light and doesn’t feel heavy. It holds your makeup in place.

2. Your face makeup: Dress your face with lighter makeup, a tinted moisturizer (i.e. MaryKay tinted moisturizer) applied to your face, let it dry and with a brush, brush on loose powder in spots where you need extra coverage.

3. Eye shadows: Your eye shadow should be natural colors or matte eye shadows. Your eyeliner should be applied next to set the look.

4. Bronze: this makes your eyes and face look brighter. Apply it just to the high points of your face where the sun naturally hits. It keeps you looking fresh and natural.

5. Water proof mascara: Use water proof mascara

6. Lip-gloss/lip-gloss in shimmery shades: This completes the perfect summer look. If you choose to wear a lipstick go with a touch of natural lip color.

Have a splendid, fun-filled summer!!!

YOUR EYES SAY IT ALL

Your eyes reflect a lot on your personality and they attract attention, why not enhance them and attract more positive attention. For your eyes to have that healthy sparkle, it takes a lot more than makeup. A sensible healthy diet will go a long way towards maintaining clear beautiful sparkling eyes for a lifetime and will significantly slow the onset of deteriorating vision and other eye problems. You are never too young and it’s never too late to start a healthy dietary regiment to help protect your eyes. I may go on and on telling you how to apply so many eye colors to bring out the sparkles in your eyes. Don’t get me wrong, make-up is wonderful but the beauty of it all starts from within - all you need to do is start now and make those healthy choices for beautiful eyes.

Enhancing your eyes is just looking-good-made-easy. Applying a specialized eye moisturizer to keep the tissues around your eyes soft and pliable is very important because the skin around the eye is very thin and easily damaged. This may be done often, and especially before any eye makeup is applied. There are so many enhancing eye shadow colors out there and keep in mind that not all colors are suitable for you despite your thinking that certain colors will bring out your eye colors.
It is fun to experiment with eye shadows, eye liners, pencils, paints, and powders but most women just want to know what is right for them. Too much added color distracts from your eyes, even if it matches your eye color. Choosing your eye shadows to match your lifestyle is a smart idea.

CARING FOR YOUR FACE

How do you care for your face? Your face is a very important part of you, the way you treat your face will always reflect on the skin of your face. It all starts from within you and what you eat - good or bad. I will focus on external ways to care for your face.

Facial cleansers and scrubs are important to enhance circulation in your facial blood vessels. Use facial pore cleansers & scrubs when it comes to caring for your face. Some skin care & face cleansers can be considered harsh when it comes to your skin. Your facial cleansers and scrubs should remove makeup and dirt without leaving your face feeling overly dry.

When washing your face, you want to dissolve the dirt and oil on the surface of your skin. Facial cleansers and scrubs basically consist of oil, water and surfactants. Oil dissolves the oil on the face and surfactants dissolve everything else and finally water washes it all away. Skin care & face cleansers can prevent blemishes.

If you use a skin care & face cleansers that are too rich for your skin you can clog your pores. If it is too dry, it can irritate your skin. Facial cleansers and scrubs are available for all skin types. It is important to clean your face thoroughly and vital that you remove your makeup every night before going to bed. Natural, healthy looking skin requires pore cleansers for deep cleaning. Cleansers also help to remove facial blemishes.

Cleanse your face gently with warm water to loosen clogged pores and stimulate blood circulation to the skin. Be sure to rinse with cool water to tighten your pores. Water that is too hot or too cold can cause broken capillaries. Using facial cleansers and scrubs regularly can make a huge difference in your appearance. Keep your skin healthy with natural facial cleanser
