Outfit Idea: Bike in Fashion

One of my favorite Spring outdoor activity is biking. No, not the intensive cycling type but the casual biking. If you're looking for a date idea or just something to do over the weekend I would recommend renting a bike to take promenade through the beach or the park. Since I live in California two of my favorite place is Griffith Park (Los Angeles) and Coronado Beach (San Diego). Again, California is pretty sunny so when I do bike I like to wear something light to let my skin breath (and look cute).
I normally wear linen shorts and light peasant top for casual biking. However, if you're going on a date, I would recommend wearing a chambray romper and accessorize with a pair of chandelier earrings and a floral pattern scarf (for unexpected weather change). Also, for comfortable biking, platform shoes or flat sandals are great choices.

How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?
Many patients ask us, "How does laser hair removal work?" But, more often than not, what they really want to know is, "Is laser hair removal safe and effective, and will it work on me?" Laser hair removal may sound like a terrifying procedure that involves shooting a laser gun at your skin like something from a spy movie. However, this is not how laser hair removal actually looks. Laser hair removal is becoming increasingly popular, and it's easy to see why when you learn how effective it is. We'll answer your questions here so you can make the best choice for your lifestyle and skin. Laser Hair Removal Is Safe Obviously, the most important question to ask whenever you try a new skin treatment is whether it is safe. When you're out in public, everyone can see your skin. People are usually scared of the word "laser" when it comes to laser hair removal because it sounds dangerous. The truth is that the lasers used in laser hair removal are extremely effective at destroying only hair follicles while leaving the rest of your skin unharmed. The US FDA strictly regulates all lasers used for hair removal to ensure their safety. Hair removal lasers are referred to as "lasers" because they emit extremely concentrated light. This specialised light is absorbed by your hair follicles, which convert the light energy into heat. Heat harms your hair's follicle, which is responsible for hair growth. This targeted damage to the hair follicle is what removes unwanted hair and reduces the likelihood of it growing back. Hair removal lasers are designed to target melanin in the hair. Melanin is the pigment that gives colour to your body hair. The laser targets the hair from the shaft down into the follicle by using the contrast between the melanin and your skin. Because laser hair removal works by reducing the ability of your hair follicles to regrow hair, it must be done gradually. The fact that the procedure is done over time contributes to the procedure's safety because the laser's level is low enough to damage only the hair follicles and not the surrounding skin. Laser Hair Removal Is Worth Your Investment Laser hair removal requires an investment of your time; however, when you consider how long the results will last, it is relatively inexpensive. Consider how much time and money you spend on your current hair removal method when deciding whether or not laser hair removal is a good option for you. For example, if you shave your legs, try keeping track of how much time you spend shaving each week. Then figure out how many razor-head replacements you go through in a week. Then multiply this cost by the number of weeks and months in a year to get the current, annual cost of hair removal. The Time Commitment Laser hair removal can take anywhere from 2 to 6 sessions, depending on your skin and hair type. The length of each session is determined by the size of the area being shaved. Small areas, such as the upper lip or armpits, can take 5-15 minutes, whereas larger areas, such as your legs or back, can take up to an hour per session. You can expect to wait 4-6 weeks between sessions. This is due to the fact that hair grows in cycles, and the laser is most effective at killing your hair when it is actively growing. One of the most common mistakes people make with laser hair removal is going to a couple of sessions, seeing a reduction in hair growth, and then failing to return for their remaining sessions. What is actually happening when you notice this initial reduction in hair growth is that your hair is in a dormant period and will re-grow quickly once this cycle is completed. That is why it is essential to attend the recommended number of sessions. How Much Money Do You Really Spend? The average cost of laser hair removal is between $300 and $500. However, this varies greatly depending on the size of the area you're removing hair from and the number of sessions your hair requires. Many facilities offer financing for aesthetic treatments. The initial cost of this hair removal method may appear to be high. Laser hair removal, on the other hand, is expected to provide months to years of smooth skin at a time. If you multiply the amount you currently spend on shaving or waxing over months and years, the cost is likely comparable to what you'll pay as a one-time fee for laser hair removal. You may be wondering why, if laser hair removal works so well and is so inexpensive, not everyone is doing it. The truth is that there are numerous misconceptions about laser hair removal that deter people from using it. How to Get Ready There are things you can do to prepare your skin for a healthy laser hair removal session, as well as things you can do to care for your skin after each session. The best way to decide whether to commit to laser hair removal is to speak with your skin specialist about your hair removal options.
6 Easy Ways To A Smooth Neck
Because the skin on your neck is some of the thinnest on your body, it is also one of the first places to show signs of ageing. Here are six ways to make your neck look younger and address everything from sun damage to sagging on this delicate area. 1. WEAR SUNSCREEN EVERY SINGLE DAY. Your dermatologist will agree that a nickel-sized amount of sunscreen applied to your neck and chest every day will help prevent collagen breakdown and the formation of sunspots. Don't forget to massage the sides and back of your neck. 2. MAINTAIN YOUR SKIN'S MOISTURIZATION. Again, the skin on your neck is thinner and has fewer oil glands than the rest of your body, so keeping the area hydrated is essential for a smoother overall texture. Look for peptide-containing creams (which can help stimulate new collagen growth) and apply them in gentle, upward strokes from your chest to your jawline. 3. RECLAIM YOUR BEAUTY SLEEP. Do you always wake up with pillow lines on the side of your neck? Apply one of these silicone patches before going to bed to keep your skin from crinkling while you sleep. You'll wake up with a smoother neck and less chance of further damage. 4. FOCUS ON CORRECT POSTURE. The amount of time we spend looking down at our phones and screens has resulted in what we now refer to as "tech neck." The simplest solution would be to limit screen time entirely, but more realistically, you should keep everything as close to eye level as possible to avoid unnecessary wrinkling. 5. GIVE LASER TREATMENTS A GO AHEAD. Still have fine lines on your neck? Fraxel lasers, stimulate your body's natural repair process to promote collagen growth. Fraxel can also be used to treat any dark spots or broken capillaries in the area, giving you a more even complexion. 6. ULTRASOUND TREATMENT FOR SERIOUS REPAIR. Ultherapy or Ultracel is your best non-surgical option for deeper, more stubborn lines and sagging. The FDA-approved treatment uses heat generated by focused sonic waves to penetrate deeper into the skin and stimulate the production of new collagen. Take note that the effect is gradual, and most patients notice a lifting effect three to six months after the initial treatment, so be patient.
6 Common Mistakes You’re Probably Making While Conditioning Your Hair
Hair is probably the most important feature of our body. It frames the face and lets us achieve different looks by chopping it or styling it in many ways. Often, it happens that we have a hard time managing our hair, and it ends up looking dull and lifeless. If you have long and soft hair goals, and still seem to be unable to reach them, then you might be doing something that's not right. While shampooing your hair is important, following it with a conditioner is equally essential. Avoiding conditioner, or not using it properly, might be a factor in not having hair that looks healthy, shiny, and effortlessly beautiful. Here are the 6 common mistakes you're probably making while conditioning your hair: 1. Not Using A Conditioner. It is the most common mistake that you might be making when taking care of your hair. The shampoo is not enough for your hair, as it can make your hair rough and eventually prone to damage. A shampoo opens up the hair cuticles that must be allowed to close by using a hair conditioner afterward. A conditioner is responsible for locking in the moisture in your hair and making it tangle-free. Thus, it works in protecting and hydrating your hair. So next time, make sure you don't skip on your conditioner. 2. Don't Use Too Much Of It. It is recommended that you should use just a coin-sized amount of conditioner on your hair, depending on the thickness, of course. Using large amounts of conditioner at a time could make your hair look greasy and flat. It can also make your hair fragile over time, due to the product buildup. 3. Choose A Conditioner Suitable For Your Hair Type. Knowing your hair type and its requirements is the key to healthy hair. A conditioner usually moisturizes the hair and protects it's from dirt and pollution. So, choosing the right one for your hair becomes a prominent decision. If you have dry or curly hair, then you need a conditioner that is thick and deeply nourishing for your hair. It should also be your priority to use chemical-free products when it comes to your hair care. Clovia Botaniqa Anti-Hair Fall Conditioner has all the goodness of many natural ingredients, like jojoba oil, vitamin E, keratin, argan oil, and more. It helps you in keeping your hair frizz-free and strengthen it. 4. Match It To The Brand Of Your Shampoo. Don't even consider using a conditioner that is different from your shampoo brand. It may happen that you don't see effective results on your hair, even after using a conditioner. It is because the conditioner may not be as suitable for your hair as your shampoo is. A pair of shampoo and conditioner from the same brand, and the same range, can provide you impressive results, as their functions will complement each other's work. 5. Avoid Your Scalp While Applying It. Hair conditioners differ vastly from shampoos. They are meant for your hair and should not be used on the scalp. The texture of the conditioner is very creamy and thick, which can clog your hair follicles. Eventually, it will cause hair to fall and cause a greasy scalp. Make sure to apply conditioner only on the lengths and ends of your hair, avoiding the scalp. Rinse it thoroughly after a few minutes, and you'll have silky smooth hair. 6. Not Leaving It On For Long Enough. Yeah, that's a thing. It is necessary to massage the conditioner in your hair lengths so that it emulsifies and closes your hair cuticles. Just dabbing it on your hair and rinsing immediately after, is not going to give you good results. You have to leave it on for a few minutes after massaging it well, and then wash it off. A good hair day fills you up with so much confidence in yourself. You can do any hairstyle when your hair is healthy and bouncy. For this to happen, pay close attention to the mistakes that you could have been making unknowingly, while using a conditioner. Make sure to be very caring about hair as they need that gentle maintenance, and you will surely achieve your hair goals.

Lasers Vs Chemical Peels - What's Best For Your Skin?
Scarring from acne? Fine lines and wrinkles? Pigmentation and sun spots? Is any of this ringing a bell? They do happen, regrettably, and when they do, we panic. We've looked everywhere, from skincare products that claim to remove age spots to lengthy Google searches, expecting to find the 'magic' treatment that can eradicate the skin's textural imperfections and beyond. Fortunately, there are alternatives. Chemical peels and laser treatments, two skin resurfacing techniques that remove damaged skin to encourage skin regeneration, are used. What is the final outcome? Smoother and more rejuvenated skin. Combating skin problems has never been easier, but if you're new to the world of skin resurfacing, it might be intimidating. What Is the Difference Between Chemical Peels and Laser Treatments? Skin resurfacing techniques such as chemical peels and laser treatments remove old skin to promote the formation of new skin. Both procedures are frequently used to treat acne scars and hyperpigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles, and sun exposure issues such as pigmentation spots. Chemical peels and laser treatments are distinguished by the procedure itself. The first, as the name implies, employs chemical treatments to remove damaged skin, whilst the second employs lasers. Chemical peels use different amounts of acid solutions to treat the skin's outer layer. There are three types of peels: superficial, medium, and deep. Superficial chemical peels (for example, VI Peel and lactic acid peels) are delicate and exfoliate the skin lightly with weak acids. Medium chemical peels (for example, glycolic acid peels and TCA peels) are more invasive and penetrate the middle and outer layers of the skin. Deep chemical peels (e.g., phenol acid peels) are the most potent, employing strong acids to penetrate as well as remove damaged skin cells. Laser resurfacing treatments use light beams to penetrate the skin, eliminating one column at a time. Although laser removal is more exact, it is often more expensive than chemical peels. There are two types of lasers: ablative and non-ablative. Ablative lasers (such as CO2 and erbium) offer the best effects by vaporizing the skin. Non-ablative lasers (for example, Fraxel) are less intrusive to the skin because they heat it rather than destroying it. Because non-ablative lasers are less strong than ablative lasers, numerous sessions may be required to achieve the optimum results. While chemical peels and laser treatments are distinct in their advantages and the concerns they address, there is some overlap in the issues they address. A strong TCA (trichloroacetic acid) chemical peel, for example, can give resurfacing comparable to that of a resurfacing laser, or both peels and lasers can be utilized to treat acne and acne scars. In terms of skin tone, the two surgeries are also dissimilar. Chemical peels assist those with darker skin tones the most because they are an excellent pigmentation treatment. People with dark skin tones are more prone to hyperpigmentation concerns such as post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation due to an overabundance of melanin in their skin (PIH). Acid solutions are used in chemical peels to encourage collagen formation, and antioxidants are used to further penetrate and treat pigmentation in darker skin. What Are the Most Common Chemical Peel Types? Vi Peel The VI Peel is a painless, mild peel that is appropriate for all skin types and tones. It is made up of trichloroacetic acid, Retin-A, salicylic acid, phenol, and vitamin C and is widely used to treat hyperpigmentation and repair UV damage. Lactic peel A lactic peel is made from milk and is ideal for dry or sensitive skin. It balances the pH of the skin and exfoliates gently by dissolving dead skin cells. Glycolic peel Glycolic acid, which is used in glycolic peels, stimulates the synthesis of new collagen and elastin by targeting the skin's outer layer. It is frequently used to treat acne, acne scars, and to tighten pores. TCA peel A TCA peel, which is more harsh than a glycolic peel, contains trichloroacetic acid. It is commonly used to lighten skin pigmentation and smooth wrinkles. Phenol peel To address severe wrinkles and discolouration, a phenol peel penetrates the skin thoroughly. When compared to gentler peels, it typically necessitates a lengthy recovery period and may be unpleasant. What Are the Most Frequently Used Laser Treatments? Fraxel Laser Treatment The Fraxel Laser Treatment uses FDA-approved fractional laser technology to revitalize skin. This laser is best effective on acne scars and tiny wrinkles that are mild to moderate in severity. CO2 Laser Treatment The CO2 Laser Treatment uses pixelated carbon dioxide lasers to treat more severe skin issues like deep wrinkles and acne scars. In general, this laser is unsuccessful for treating skin redness. Erbium Laser The Erbium laser is a less invasive and gentler laser treatment than the CO2 laser. The laser increases collagen formation by penetrating the epidermis (the outer skin layer). It's commonly used to remove wrinkles, fine lines, and age spots. Which Of These Is the Best Skin Care Treatment? It all boils down to your skin type and concerns, in a nutshell. It can be difficult to determine the best course of action, therefore it is always advisable to visit with a dermatologist to discuss your concerns and treatment choices. Not all chemical peels and laser procedures are suited for people with darker skin tones. Are you unsure about your situation? When in doubt, always consult a dermatologist. THE MOST EFFECTIVE ACNE SCAR TREATMENT A chemical peel used to treat hyperpigmentation. Textural changes, such as atrophic or indented scars, respond better to laser skin treatments. A TCA chemical peel, on the other hand, can help with acne scars. Combination methods, which include laser, peels, subcision, and/or dermal fillers, are widely used. WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT IF THIS IS MY FIRST CHEMICAL PEEL/LASER TREATMENT? With chemical peels, expect some redness and peeling following, depending on the type of peel. Not every peel results in apparent peeling. Post-laser skin side effects may include redness, peeling, swelling, and bruising, depending on the laser used. If you use topical treatments, you should discontinue them a few days before the procedure. You may be advised to stop using retinoids, hydroxy acids, benzoyl peroxide, or other harsh, drying, and potentially irritating substances depending on the peel and laser. As a preventative step, patients with a history of cold sores may be given antiviral drugs. WILL A CHEMICAL PEEL OR A LASER TREATMENT BE APPROPRIATE FOR MY SKIN? If you have any of the following conditions, you should avoid chemical peels and laser treatments: - Active infections in the treatment regions - Will be exposed to sunlight after treatment - Have a history of keloids or hypertrophic scars. - A lack of enough post-treatment recuperation time. - Have a darker skin tone (this applies to certain types of chemical peels and laser resurfacing treatments). Whether you choose a chemical peel or a laser treatment, there is a resurfacing skin option for you!
Should You Get Laser Hair Removal - Pros And Cons
The truth is that when it comes to removing body hair, you have options, and you should weigh them all before making a decision. You can quickly shave everything away, but hair grows back in a matter of days. Depilatory creams dissolve hair in seconds, but they smell like a wet dog mixed with gasoline. If you want to remove hair more thoroughly, you could try waxing or sugaring, which snatches the hair at the root. Hair doesn't grow back for weeks, but waxing is a painful procedure that causes itching when the hair grows back. There are more long-term options, such as electrolysis. Electrolysis involves inserting a super-fine needle into each hair follicle to deliver an electric current that kills the hair follicle. If you think it sounds painful, you'd be correct, and a session can be time-consuming. That brings us to laser hair removal, a popular semi-permanent hair removal method that damages the hair follicle in order to reduce hair growth. The laser detects hair solely by focusing on pigment cells found in the hair follicle. The laser burns all the way down the hair follicle and root once the melanin in the hair is targeted. You can throw away your razor and cancel your waxing appointments after a few sessions. But, before you book your first session, we've broken down the benefits and drawbacks of laser hair removal. Let's look at the benefits and drawbacks of laser hair removal. What are the advantages? While laser hair removal does not permanently remove hair, it does significantly reduce hair growth to the point where you can stop shaving. It can be done anywhere on the body, and the machine can cover large areas quickly. The legs, the back, the underarms, the bikini line, the stomach, the face... There are no restrictions on where you can get laser hair removal. In terms of pain, laser hair removal is somewhere between shaving (painless) and waxing (holy hell that hurts). It also becomes less painful as the treatments progress and the hair becomes finer. What are the disadvantages? It's a lengthy procedure. A laser hair removal session on the underarms takes less than a minute. However, it takes several sessions to see real results, ranging from three to eight depending on the size of the area, and you must usually wait four weeks between treatments. It is pricey. If you add up how much you've spent on razors and bikini wax sessions over the course of your life, the $200-$400 per session of laser hair removal may be worth it. Consider laser hair removal to be a beauty investment. Laser hair removal works best on fair skin with dark hair and worse on darker skin because the contrast between the colour of the skin and the colour of the pigment in the hair follicle allows the laser to easily pick out what to target. In patients with darker skin tones, the pigment-rich skin competes for the laser's attention with the hair follicle. This isn't to say that it isn't a possibility for people with darker skin, but you'll want to make sure the facility you visit is properly equipped. On all skin types, certain lasers, such as the Nd:YAG, are better at distinguishing between hair and skin. Laser hair removal may result in burns or scars on the skin if performed by an untrained technician. Regrettably, licencing procedures differ from state to state, and in some cases, there are no requirements at all. Be wary of "laser centres," and make sure to ask where your laser technician received his or her certification to perform the procedure. Even a dermatologist who wishes to provide laser hair removal treatments must undergo additional training. Because laser treatment is not taught in medical school, physicians who perform laser treatments must also be trained and certified.
How to make soy candles?
08 Steps to Making Soy Candles: Beginner's Guide Making candles has been a popular hobby for centuries. From how to make candles, how to get started making candles, and how to use candle waxes, we’ve got you covered! In this blog post we will discuss how to make soy candles. Soy is a healthier alternative than paraffin or beeswax because it burns cleaner and leaves less soot behind. It also doesn't produce an odor while burning. The process of making soy candles isn't difficult - here are the 08 steps involved: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lz9c4SbjwmM Step One: Get the Right Supplies Before you begin making your soy candles, be sure to have all of your supplies ready. You will need a few household items that most people already have lying around their house. These include an old pot or saucepan for melting wax, measuring cups and spoons, spoon stirrers (wooden chopsticks or lollipop sticks work great), a wick for each candle you plan to make, and of course the wax itself. You will also need a heat source - either an electric stove top burner or hot plate, or a camp stove outside if it is warm enough. If using an outdoor area like your backyard, be sure that there is no grass or plants getting in the way of your wax. While it is unlikely that you will get burned, there are more chances for accidents if your surface area is cluttered with anything else but just the candle making supplies. Step Two: Prepare Your Wick and Molding Tools For how to make soy candles, place one end of the wick into a pencil holder and tightly wrap it around an inch or two. If you’re using lollipop sticks then place one end of the lollipop stick inside your measuring cup, about an inch or so from the bottom and hold in place with your thumb as shown here: No matter what you are making, you will need materials to work with.

While waiting for this to happen, pour soy wax flakes into a compatible container that can withstand high temperatures such as Pyrex or ceramic bowls. Once the wax has melted in the top of your double boiler, add scent if desired and stir continuously. Step Four: Prep Your Molding Tools You will need your mold(s) ready. If you’re using a mason jar or something similar, be sure that the rim of the jar is completely dry without any leftover soap residue on it as this can prevent your candles from setting properly. You may need to lightly sand the area around how to make soy candles so that it is completely smooth and free of any dirt or soap residue, before placing your wick in place. Step Five: Position Your Wick How do you get a steady stream of wax for how long? If using a glass jar or other mold, position how to make soy candles so that it is centered and the wick remains straight. If using a container with a flat bottom such as an old candle holder or something similar then you can place your how to make soy candles anywhere in this type of container without needing anything else holding it into place. Step Six: Pour Your Wax The last step is how to make soy candles. Fill your container with the melted wax, making sure how to get any air bubbles out of it as you do so. The wick should absorb the liquid and expand slightly; this will help keep how to make soy candles straight. If there are any gaps in between how to make soy candles and how to make soy candles, fill them in with more melted wax. You can also add how to melt wax by putting the container into a larger pot of hot water until how to get any air bubbles out is completely filled. Step Seven: Allow Your Candle To Cool You will know that your candle has hardened when it no longer feels how to make soy candles. At this point, you can cut your wick down or how do they remove wax? You’ll need a pair of scissors and the bottom of your candle jar (or something similar) will work as well.

A new, hot wax may contain a variety of unique elements as well as the natural oils unique to the person’s skin. Once the wax starts to cool, those natural oils will start to crystallize and the wax will lose its stickiness. The heat of the wax also makes the wax removed from the skin a lot more difficult to peel off, which often results in a painful removal process. At a professional salon, a new wax is removed with a spatula. Spatulas are useful for removing both hard and soft waxes. Once the wax is no longer soft, a special type of spatula, called a “wax melter,” is used . has been cut, pull out the wick and let your candle how to get any air bubbles out for a few minutes before lighting it. Enjoy soy candles Aroma of Soy Candles There are many benefits of using soy candles. They are completely natural, soya is grown sustainably, and they are non-toxic.

Mystery Artist Wanksy Paints Penises Around Potholes To Get Them Fixed [NSFW]
Armed with only a can of spray paint, an artist located in Manchester, England, is determined to rid the streets of potholes. How does one get rid of a potholes when city officials don't take the issue seriously? By drawing penises on them of course. The anonymous artist goes by the name "Wanksy", a clever spin-off of the famous street artists Banksy. The artist decided to draw attention to the "appalling" pothole-ridden streets after some of his cyclists friends were badly injured due to the potholes on the streets. “I wanted to attract attention to the pothole and make it memorable. Nothing seemed to do this better than a giant comedy phallus,” he said. “It’s also speedy, I don’t want to be in the road for a long time. It seems to have become my signature. I just want to make people smile and draw attention to the problem.” The artist uses non-permanent paint that washes out within a week or two. Despite the paint's short life span, the potholes have been getting fixed quicker than they were previously. So apparently a penis on the street elevates the urgency of road repair. "People will drive over the same pothole and forget about it,” the artist said. “Suddenly you draw something amusing around it, everyone sees it and it either gets reported or fixed." The local government is not amused. A council spokesman in Bury, a town in Greater Manchester, told the Evening News that the artist’s actions “are not only stupid but incredibly insulting to local residents. Has this person, for just one second, considered how families with young children must feel when they are confronted with these obscene symbols as they walk to school? Not only is this vandalism, but it’s also counter-productive,” the spokesman said. “Every penny that we have to spend cleaning off this graffiti is a penny less that we have to spend on actually repairing the potholes.” Regardless of whether the local government has to spend more to clean the graffiti, the artist is ultimately succeed in his goal. And from the looks of the repair jobs, the local government is spending no time or money trying to remove the graffiti. Rather, they are just covering the pothole with new asphalt.
