Easy Ways to Hydrate Your Skin
Let's understand right from the beginning that moisturising helps to slow down the ageing process. Here's another way to look at it. Drinking water is an essential part of everyone's day, so if you want to keep your skin healthy, you need to make sure you're hydrating it too. Here are five practical ways to help your skin stay moisturised. Moisturizer You should moisturise every day. As a Dermatologist, I stress this and for solid reasons. Moisturizers have the ability to hold water in your skin, keeping it smooth and supple. You can't assume that, because you're a man or a woman, your skin is sensitive, oily, you don't need to apply moisturizer. Even if you don't notice the need for it, you should moisturise your skin on a daily basis. The American Academy of Dermatology (AAD) recommends the use of moisturiser frequently, every single day. Moisturizing everyday can help calm down oily skin and reduce acne breakouts and reduce wrinkles. Tub soak vs Shower Avoid hot baths as they may cause unwanted side effects. you may  choose to soak in the hot tub because it helps relieve tension and relax the body, but bear in mind that hot water removes the natural skin oils that protect your skin. Your skin dries out skin and feels itchy and irritated, especially if you have a dry or sensitive skin type. Hot tub soaks can aggravate eczema, psoriasis and many other skin conditions. Rather than immersing yourself in hot water, prefer to settle for a warm shower. Gentle Skincare Products If you have sensitive skin, opt for gentler products. Exfoliating your skin daily or using an antibacterial soap is unnecessary. Such products definitely strip your skin dry.  To ensure that you are buying products that are gentle, moisturising and fragrance-free, learn to read ingredient labels correctly. Avoid ingredients such as sulfates, silicones and parabens. Try to pick certified organic or clean beauty products where possible. Sunscreen Use sunscreen at all times. When you expose your skin to the harmful UV rays of the sun, protect it from the damage that they cause. Make sure to apply sunscreen each and every day, year-round, even during the winter months. Using a broad-spectrum sunscreen, SPF 30 (or higher), which is water-resistant is strongly recommended. Also do reapply sunscreen every 3-4 hours to areas of the skin that are directly exposed to UV rays.  Sunscreen is also one of the best ways to prevent pigmentation and premature aging. Drink Water Drink a lot of water. This sounds like a cliche, but drinking plenty of water will help to both moisturise your skin and replenish all of your body's fluids. Exercise, staying healthy, and drinking plenty of water are all effective methods for preventing the early signs of ageing.
How to Make Sure Your Neck Never Gives Away Your Age
Your skin care routine is flawless, and your face has never looked more vibrant and glowing. But then you look down to see it - your neck. Your neck, which is frequently affected by wrinkles, bands, and sagging, is one of the first and most visible parts of the body to show signs of ageing. Even using your regular skin care routine on the neck does not always appear to help with these issues. So, what are the best methods for combating and smoothing these age-related fine lines? Surprisingly, the face and the neck are linked; however, the ageing of the neck is slightly different. There are several reasons for this, one of which is that the skin on the neck is extremely thin. It is vulnerable to sun damage. But what distinguishes the neck is that it moves; the neck is a joint, just like your elbow or knee. And we develop creases over our joints over time. Normal skin ageing causes collagen and elastic tissue to break down, which accounts for neck wrinkles and sagging. This typically manifests itself around the mid-20s, and it is exacerbated in those who have had increased exposure to sunlight and pollutants such as cigarette smoke. These creases and bands on the neck have gotten worse in recent decades as a result of a condition known as "tech neck," which is caused by looking down at electronic devices for long periods of time. Neck bands become worse with neck movement, such as moving the neck up and down. They also get deeper when you hold your neck in a downward position while browsing on your phone or working on your laptop. Is there a way to prevent neck ageing? The best solution is to prevent sagging and wrinkles from forming in the first place. It is always easier to prevent damage than it is to repair or rejuvenate it. Sunscreen This product is your best line of defence against wrinkles and other signs of ageing. When choosing a sunscreen, look for one with an SPF of 30 or higher. Sun damage accelerates the appearance of ageing on all parts of the body. Do you already apply sunscreen to your face? Apply the same skin care routine that you use on your face to your neck. Antioxidants Another method of prevention is to use topical treatments and creams containing antioxidants. Ingredients such as vitamin C and E, can help reverse the effects of sunlight and pollution. They also stimulate collagen, reduce fine lines and improve skin elasticity. Retinols Retinols are also beneficial in combating the signs of ageing. If you have sensitive skin and are concerned about the strength, choose a cream that contains Retinyl Palmitate, a ProRetinol that is mild enough for most people. When it comes to stimulating collagen, retinoid creams are an excellent choice. Diet What you eat can also have an impact on how our skin looks. A diet high in antioxidants and low in sugar helps to prevent collagen damage. Weight fluctuation has a significant impact on your neck. If you have a history of yo-yo dieting, this will contribute to neck laxity. The most effective neck wrinkle treatments If you've already developed these unsightly wrinkles and sagging, it may be time to seek treatment. Here are some examples of dermatologist led options... HIFU Ultherapy, which uses ultrasound, penetrates deeper into the skin's layers than creams, stimulating collagen at the deeper layers and preventing sagging neck. Lasers Non-ablative fractionated resurfacing lasers, such as Clear and Brilliant or Fraxel, can help improve your skin's texture. MNRF All radiofrequency microneedling devices stimulate collagen and elastic tissue, which aids in the treatment of horizontal neck bands. If you choose this procedure, keep in mind that it will necessitate multiple treatments. Injectables Another option for filling neck bands and horizontal lines is injectables. Dermal fillers do not treat muscle, but they can help to smooth out fine lines and plump up the skin on the neck, giving it a more youthful appearance. Botox is preferable for bands and neck cords because it softens their appearance by relaxing the muscle.
Korean Summer Skincare Essentials
Even though its mid-August, summer here in Seoul is nowhere near over. We'll probably be hot and sweaty until the end of September * cries * So, I wanted to share some of my tips for using Korean beauty products to survive the weather :) What I mention: 1. SUNBLOCK Here in Korea there are a lot of different kinds of sunblock including a more watery 'essence' that you apply after your toner in the morning. It seeps into your skin and really helps protect you! 2. Aloe Vera I used this all the time as a kid who would get sunburned a lot haha In Korea you can buy it by the tub-full and drinkable aloe is also really popular! 3. Face Masks in the Fridge! We all know Korean face masks do amazing things for your skin, but for extra summer relief, through them in your fridge for a mini ice facial! The mask will be super cold and will feel soooo good! 4. Gel Eye Masks If you don't like putting product on your face, you should try gel masks that are just pickets of gel that you can either heat up or freeze and put on your face. My eye patches are really great when I have a head ache or I'm just too hot. 5. Clay Masks For Oil I don't really have oily skin, but in the summer even I get that unwelcomed shine. Clay masks really help get rid of that extra oil and calm down your pores. I have a volcanic clay mask that is amazing! 6. Foot Masks Normally when we think of skincare we think of only our faces, but your feet need love too! Especially durning summer when you're probably in sandals more - foot masks really help you out. Some are insane and totally make all your skin peel off, but some are tame and just moisturize your feet. You choose ;) 7. Face Mists Face mists are my life savers on a hot day. Just spray a little (my favorite is a sea water kind) on your face, your neck, your arms, and voila! You're suddenly cooled down, moisturized, and feeling like you can survive the day :) For more on my opinions and what products I used: What's your favorite summer skincare tip?

Pour choisir votre perruque, vous pouvez vous rendre dans un salon de coiffure spécial pour essayer différents modèles et pouvoir poser toutes vos questions. Il y en a à Paris, mais il y en a aussi dans toute la France. Concernant les rendez-vous, il n'y a pas de règles particulières : aussi bien avant qu'après la chute des cheveux, en fonction de vos souhaits et besoins.

Easy Lifestyle Changes for Amazing Skin
Your lifestyle choices can lead to hormonal imbalances. Lack of exercise and eating packaged food can cause PCOD or Poly Cystic Ovarian Syndrome. As a result, you may experience acne and hairloss. Here are some easy lifestyle changes to restore healthy hormone levels. Get Sufficient Sleep Lack of sleep can lead to unhealthy habits. Enough sleep helps to balance ghrelin and leptin – hormones associated with appetite. Ghrelin stimulates your appetite and encourages you to eat more while leptin regulates it. Insufficient sleep increases ghrelin and lowers leptin in your bloodstream. As a result, you tend to eat more than you need. Make sure that you get adequate sleep to avoid gaining weight. Sleep also helps to rejuvenate your skin and body. Don't Stay in One Place When you remain stagnant for a long time, your body experiences hormonal imbalances. That’s why you feel pain in certain organs. To restore balance, make sure that you commit at least 30 minutes every day to exercise. It doesn’t have to be something rigorous. A walk around the neighborhood can do the trick. The goal is to be active and get your blood pumping. The breathing also helps to balance your hormones and breaking a sweat can clear your pores. Remain Calm When you try to do so many things at the same time, it becomes stressful. You can’t stop thinking about all the possibilities – mostly bad ones. Unfortunately, stress causes a lot of hormonal imbalance and hair loss comes with it. You should also avoid a lot of coffee because caffeine can also increase your stress levels. Take a deep breath and relax. Do your things in an orderly manner, and you won’t have to worry about the results. Watch What you Eat There is a direct correlation between your diet and hormones. Insulin and glucagon are hormones produced by the pancreas. Your body produces insulin after you eat. It helps to convert the food into energy. On the other hand, your body produces glucagon when it has gone without food for a while. This hormone helps to convert the stored glycogen into energy. Eating sugary foods causes an insulin imbalance. Your body won’t produce enough insulin to convert the food into energy. That’s why you feel more exhausted after eating unhealthy foods. This also triggers insulin resistance and pigmentation. You should eat foods rich in omega-3 and probiotics. Lean proteins are also good for hormonal balance. Your habits can affect the hormonal balance in your body. Practice the above healthy habits to keep your energy levels and moods up. And do consult your dermatologist if your problems persist.

Lip Anti-Aging 101 - Secrets to a Youthful Pout
Lips are frequently left out of anti-aging discussions. Volume loss and wrinkles around the mouth, are some of the first signs of ageing. Our lips undergo a number of significant changes as they age. Most lips lose volume and definition over time. But smokers, those with lighter skin, and those who spend a lot of time in the sun are more likely to have lines and wrinkles. Lines can also be exacerbated by those who purse their lips when speaking. So, if your current lip care routine consists of swiping lip balm on chapped lips, there's definitely more you can do to to make your lips look fresh and youthful.  Lip Anti-Aging Serums and Balms The newer lip balms deliver anti-aging ingredients and hydration right where you need it. Look for one that includes a retinol derivative, a potent ingredient known for increasing collagen production and fading dark spots. The issue is that retinol can be irritating when applied directly to the lips, so make sure to moisturise thoroughly afterwards. Ceramides, hyaluronic acid, peptides, antioxidants, and intense hydrators like coconut oil are other ingredients to look for to make lips appear fuller. Within a few days, your lips will gradually plump up. Lip balms containing alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs), which chemically exfoliate the top layer of skin to reveal a smoother, softer pout.  The simplest anti-aging lip hack, however, is to remember that the skin around your mouth should be treated in the same manner as the rest of your skin. Apply a nightly serum there as well if you're applying it elsewhere. If you're going to smear sunscreen on your lips, use a chapstick or lipstick with an SPF of at least 30. To prevent damage from daily UV light, the skin around the mouth should be protected every morning with sunscreen and topical antioxidants, just as it would be in other areas. In the evening, use retinol, growth factors, and peptides to repair your skin.  Peels and Lasers  A quick laser zap or a chemical peel can help treat fine lines and pigmentation around the lips that do not seem to improve with topical treatments. The lines form because the muscles around the mouth constrict, folding the overlying skin. Lasers and peels can be used in the office to improve skin tone and texture while also reducing the appearance of lines. Skin lightening ingredients such as kojic acid or hydroquinone derivatives are also excellent choices for lip lightening as well. Microneedling causes micro-injuries to the skin around the lips, stimulating collagen and elastic production. There is less downtime than with a laser or peel, and it is not melanin or pigment sensitive.  Lip Injectables Not all lip fillers are performed with the goal of creating Kylie Jenner lips. The lip's border, known as the "white roll," loses definition with age. Because you lost structure at the border, it is common for lipstick to bleed from the red part of your lip onto your skin. To restore volume and structure around the mouth, a filler is recommended. Over-treating the lip border can result in duck lips, but subtle treatments can help to distinguish the lip from the skin around the mouth.  Injections of hyaluronic acid dermal fillers, such as Restylane, Juvederm, or the more subtle Volbella, can make the lips more defined and thus younger-looking without significantly changing their size. If you're more concerned about wrinkles and lines around your mouth, a few drops of Botox can also help soften and relax the muscles around your mouth. There is one small catch: you won't be able to purse your lips as much, and you may be unable to drink from a straw for a few months. If you can't give up your daily iced coffee, peels or lasers with your dermatologist may be a better wrinkle-fighting option for you. Source: Lip Anti-Aging 101 - Secrets to a Youthful Pout
