Benefits of Eyebrow Threading

  • This process does not leave any spot marks. Due the fact that the hair is uprooted completely the areas remain clean and neat. All you can see is the skin

Fairness Creams

Whenever I go to market, a moisturizer and a sunscreen lotion is a must pick for me. I don’t use fairness lotions, but a lot of people have a perception that fairness creams help them to enhance their complexion and offer them radiant and trouble-free skin.

Though, I do not hesitate to do research on my behalf and have explored a few facts about the fairness creams available on the market.

  • If you are not aware, let me tell you that most of the fairness creams contain bleaching agents. If the content of the bleaching agents present in these creams exceeds the level considered as safe, it may leave a harmful effect on the skin over time. Also, the long-term usage of these creams may pose serious health issues. In rare cases, it may cause skin cancer too.
  • None of the fairness creams can change the actual complexion of a person. All of these creams provides temporary results so that the user gets addicted to the product.
  • Many creams contain harmful ingredients like mercury that may cause abdominal pain, increased thirst, constipation and other skin problems. In many instances, it may result in severe allergies.

Handmade Soap

Handmade soap is great to me and seems to be better for my skin overall. I have heard from many others that purchase soap from me and they love it as well. The benefits of using handmade soap is better than store bought soaps for many reasons. The main reason being all of the chemicals and additives used in store bought soaps. Handmade soaps do not contain all of the harsh chemicals in them that other soaps do. My base recipe includes olive oil, but you can incorporate many different types of oils including coconut oil, or grapeseed oil, and more – just to name a few. I usually use a mix of oils to make my complete mixture for the soaps I make. Using a mixture of different oils along with some other items can give the best results.

People often ask me if you can make soap without lye. The short answer to this is yes, you can. You can make lye-free soap from a pre-mixture you can buy at your local hobby store or arts and crafts store that is called melt and pour. This simple method of soap making is easy for anyone

They are usually collected in ponytails so that their cuticle remain healthy and already show shiny, soft texture. Virgin hair is the highest quality hair extension option available in the market.

Even prior to donation, the hair should be not styled, relaxed or not exposed to any type of hair treatments. These types often show an undamaged cuticle, which in turn results in the softer and natural texture of the hair extension or replacement.

Cuticles are the vital part in your hair. Once they are damaged, it may cause serious problems like
