Natural Tips and Tricks to Get Shiny and Healthier Nails

Nails are probably one of the most neglected part of our health and body care rituals. But did you know that like the rest of the body our nails too reflect our inner health? Therefore, it is essential that we look after them to keep them strong and healthy. If your nails are thin and constantly breaking, this may indicate inadequate intake vitamins, minerals and protein as well as insufficient nail care. Pale nails can also be an indication of anemia while if a blueish tinge that appears on your nails it can point to inefficient blood circulation and not enough oxygen in your blood. Hence, it is important to look for these essential cues. Here are some natural ways to keep your nails healthy.

How to keep them healthy and shiny?

Ishika Taneja, Executive Director Alps Group, and Ragini Mehra, founder, Beauty Source, warn that continuous applications of nail polish make nails go dull. Rub lemon at least thrice in a week to get rid of yellowness. They also suggest massaging nails every alternative day for about three to five minutes with olive or coconut oil to add moisture to them.

Natural remedies for dry and brittle nails

Beauty expert Suparna Trikha suggests a handful of remedies:

1.Warm 250ml of olive oil or castor oil, add half a cup of sage leaves and heat this mixture for 5 minutes. Let it stand for a while until cool, and then strain it. Rub it frequently into your nails.

2.Another effective remedy that can infuse life back into your nails, could be beating together 125 ml honey, 1 egg yolk, 125 ml avocado oil or castor oil and 2ml sea salt store it in top jar in a refrigerator. Rub into the nails daily, and leave it on for half an hour before washing.

3.Papaya contains enzymes that soften the protein tissue and are good for the cuticles. Mash papaya and add lemon juice and 1tsp vodka or vinegar. Soak your nails in this mixture for at least 20 minutes and massage into the skin regularly.

Nail-friendly Diet

It is time you start taking your diet seriously not only for your weight regulation or for good skin, but also for the impact it has on your nails. An intake of iron, calcium, vitamins A, C, D and E can work wonders for healthy and shiny nails. Vitamin D is known to cure nail ridges while folic acid and Vitamin C is effective for split nails. Heath Practitioner and Macrobiotic Nutritionist Shilpa Arora ND says, “Bone broth is an exceptional food for healthy nails. It helps boost pure collagen production and is full of minerals like zinc, sulphur, selenium and magnesium. Add sulphur rich veggies like onion, cabbage and broccoli to up the nutrients. Consultant Nutritionist Dr. Rupali Dutta says, “A diet rich in protein and keratin, like meat and eggs, is essential for good nail health. Minerals like magnesium and zinc which you can get in whole grain cereals and beans could also prove effective.”

This Is the Makeup Secret to Banishing Under Eye Circles, According to a Plastic Surgeon

Over 114 million American people bought concealer last year, according to Statista.com, mostly to cover facial imperfections including those dark circles under tired-looking eyes. (Maybe they just didn’t know these doctor-approved sleep tips for a good night’s rest.) Even plastic surgeons have noticed a major uptick in the number of patients requesting both surgical and non-surgical long term treatments for tired eyes.

John Paul Tutela, MD is a celebrity plastic surgeon with offices in New York and New Jersey who has noticed the increase in demand for under eye fillers (the same lip plumping products celebrities use to make their lips bigger and poutier), saying he has at least five new patients a week requesting the off-label procedure. Under eye fillers, while great, don’t come cheap or easy though—patients need to be open to having needles inject their upper cheek areas around once a year, and the procedure starts at $750 in Dr. Tutela’s office. It’s this reason that Dr. Tutela advises his patients to use what he calls a “secret makeup hack” to disguise the look of sunken, aging, and tired eyes either between injections or instead of them.

“A lot of what fillers accomplish is changing the contour of you face so shadows don’t fall in areas that make you look aged, like the tear trough which is right under your eye,” he explains. “By concealing dark circles it accomplishes a lot of the same look that is achieved with fillers.” The trick, he says, is using the concept of contouring beneath your eyes. This is definitely going to change the Instagram landscape, and you can add it to your list of concealer tricks every woman needs to know.

“As we age and we lose volume in our face, our lower eyelids also loosens and fat from behind our eye starts to bulge out. The combination of this extra bulk (a mountain) immediately adjacent to the loss of volume in our tear trough just beneath this (a valley) creates a contrast that becomes very recognizable as an ‘always tired’ look,” he says.

How to Contour Under Your Eyes

BAIAJAK/SHUTTERSTOCKHe suggests patients swap their single shade of concealer for two separate shades, one that’s slightly lighter than the rest of the face, and one that’s the same color as the cheeks. He suggests using the darker shade closest to the under eye on the “bulge” area to effectively shrink the visible surface area of the bulge, while using the lighter color to conceal the lower area of the under eye.

“It’s basically creating an optical illusion. The darker shade conceals the fatty bulge directly beneath the lower lash line that comes with aging and exhaustion, while the lighter shade draws attention downward and reflects more light. It’s the same concept as using a filler, but more temporary.”

Being a Woman in the Workplace Means Getting Pressured to Wear Makeup on the Job

This article is part of Pretty Pressure, a series exploring beauty labor: the idea that our beauty routines are work and should be considered as such. While beautifying can be a source of relaxation, bonding, and self-esteem, for others, it’s a chore — one which can take a real toll on us. Today’s installment of Pretty Pressure discusses the requirement for women to wear makeup in the workplace.

 

It’s clear that many women are pressured into wearing makeup at work. For some women, this pressure is explicit and comes from management, co-workers or customers. For example, Alex, 27, was working on the children’s floor of a popular clothing store when her manager told her that she “hoped she could start wearing makeup”.

Alex was stunned – she had also consistently hit her sales goals and never received a customer complaint, plus she always dressed in the clothing sold in store, as required, and wore her hair pulled back in a tidy ponytail. She was confused when her manager said people “wouldn’t want to ask her for fashion advice if they weren’t convinced by how she looked” because she was stationed on the children’s floor. She was also earning minimum wage and became concerned about how she was going to afford the “eyeliner, mascara, foundation, blush and lip gloss” that her manager suggested she start with.

Makeup is a significant cost for women, especially those on the lower end of the earning scale. A survey by SkinStore found that women walk around with an average of $8 worth of makeup and skincare products on their faces per day, which works out to a whopping $300,000 during their lifetimes. This means that, for women who are earning minimum wage, more than an hour of the work day simply covers the cost of looking acceptable enough to be there in the first place — according to our strictly gendered beauty standards, of course.

After the winter season at the clothing store was over, Alex was told her contract wouldn’t be renewed. “I had a feeling I wouldn’t be asked to stay on,” she said. “My manager came over and asked if he could talk with me on a walk around the mall, and I said okay. He told me that they wouldn’t be extending my contract. He said that I was a great employee and that I could definitely apply next summer, but that I’d have to dress better to represent the store and that I should consider this my ‘wake-up call’. Meanwhile, he’s wearing a T-shirt and jeans.”

“When it happened, I felt like a mixture of the embodiment of the eye-roll emoji and resignation,” she said. “Like, well this was inevitable and here it is.”

Women who work in service roles are particularly susceptible to the pressure to wear makeup — sometimes this takes the form of unofficial requests by managers, hedged as “looking presentable” or “representing the company”. For example, Victoria, 32, was working as a concierge at a luxury apartment building where she was given a copy of the company dress code, which did not mention hair or makeup. However, the women in the office started to receive group texts from their manager telling them they needed a more “polished” appearance.

For Cosmetics, Let the Buyer Beware

When you wash your hair, clean or moisturize your skin, polish your nails, or put on makeup, deodorant or sunscreen, do you ever think about whether the product you’re using may do more harm than good?

Maybe you should. Thanks to a lack of federal regulations, the watchword for consumers of cosmetics and personal care products should be caveat emptor: Let the buyer beware.

To be sure, these products are not nearly as worrisome as drugs, which require extensive testing and premarket approval by the Food and Drug Administration. Still, disasters can and sometimes do occur from the use of cosmetics and personal care products, and the government is powerless to act until a slew of consumer complaints raise a red flag about a product.

In a recent editorial in JAMA Internal Medicine, Dr. Robert M. Califf, who served as F.D.A. chief under President Obama, noted, “The cosmetic industry remains largely self-regulated. History has repeatedly shown that when there is insufficient regulatory oversight, a few unscrupulous people or companies will exploit the vulnerable public for profit.”

Even when a hazard comes to light, a product can remain on the market for years until negotiations make their way through the legal system or the company decides to halt sales. (Although the F.D.A. finally banned antibacterial chemicals like triclosan from soaps, triclosan is still in toothpastes and other consumer products.)

makeup-looks-april-11

A current case is a classic example. The F.D.A. normally receives about 300 to 400 complaints a year about bad reactions to cosmetics and personal care products, all of which are sold over-the-counter without prior government scrutiny. When in 2013 the agency received 127 reports of adverse effects from a single line of hair-care products called WEN, it discovered that the manufacturer, Chaz Dean, Inc., had been sitting on more than 21,000 complaints of hair loss and scalp damage associated with the products’ use.

A class-action lawsuit filed by more than 200 women against the company and its infomercial producer Guthy-Renker was settled last year for $26.3 million. Yet the company claims that WEN hair care products are “totally safe” and continues to sell them.

Unlike drugs, cosmetics can be sold based solely on manufacturers’ tests (or no tests at all) and claims for effectiveness and safety. Even the ingredients don’t have to be filed with the government. (Only color additives require premarket approval.)

“The F.D.A. must wait for clues to accumulate from voluntary reports suggesting that a product may not be as completely safe as presumed,” Dr. Califf, a cardiologist, health policy expert and vice chancellor at Duke University School of Medicine, wrote.

Asked in an interview whether more can be done to protect the public, he said, “It’s highly unlikely in the current administration. There’s a tiny work force at the F.D.A. to deal with an enormous industry that’s currently self-policing. Voluntary reporting of adverse events linked to cosmetics and personal care products is a lot better than nothing, but it’s way inadequate for the job. There’s no legal requirement for manufacturers to forward reports of adverse events to the F.D.A.”

(Only manufacturers of drugs and medical devices are required to submit reports of hazards associated with their products to the federal agency.)

The Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act defines cosmetics as “articles intended to be rubbed, poured, sprinkled, or sprayed on, introduced into, or otherwise applied to the human body … for cleansing, beautifying, promoting attractiveness, or altering the appearance.”

Maybelline’s Collab With Makeup Shayla Signifies An Important Change

Beauty brands collaborating with vloggers and Instagram influencers is a common trend these days. Iconic drugstore brand Maybelline, however, has strayed from the pack for the entirety of its 100 year existence, never once collaborating on a product. But that’s about to change. Maybelline has teamed up with beauty influencer Makeup Shayla for it’s first ever product collab.

But the announcement isn’t only important because Shayla is self-made boss. Shayla is also a boundary-breaking woman of color in a white-dominated beauty industry — and it’s time to take note.

Too many beauty brands lack diversity in products and influencer representation, often hiring white celebs or models as their ambassadors. Maybelline’s partnership with Shayla, however, allows girls of color to see themselves in the mainstream beauty industry — and to shop a collection designed with them in mind.  

12751026_1688626594739786_299054875_n-600x749

In the brand’s Instagram video revealing the partnership, Maybelline stated the company “couldn’t think of a better person than makeupshayla, a self-made boss who has built herself an inspiring career and empowered millions. Stay tuned to see what we’ve been working on together over the last year!”

I can’t disagree. Not only is Makeup Shayla a straight-up, strut-your-stuff stunner but she is also a major source of inspo.

With over two million Insta followers and an audience that pays close attention to her posts and endorsements, Shayla’s sphere of influence is major. I’m stoked that Maybelline realized that. And you should be, too.

Wearing makeup can make you feel confident, smarter and happier, says study

The results showed that although there was a significant increase in cognitive performance from the group who listened to positive music, as predicted it was those in the makeup group who performed significantly better than females in the other two groups.

The team pointed out that makeup wasn’t the only way of boosting test results.

These findings do offer new understanding into the ways in which boosting physical self-esteem through using makeup may interact with cognition.

They now suggest further research to look into whether makeup has longer lasting effects on cognitive performance.

The findings can be found published online in the journal Cogent Psychology.

If you’re feeling a little low, spare a little time putting on some makeup before you leave the house.

Wearing makeup can make a women feel more positive about herself, says scientists.

Researchers from Harvard Medical School, US, and the University of Chieti, Italy, looked into the “lipstick effect” among 186 female undergraduate students.

The lipstick effect

The “lipstick effect” is a known psychological phenomenon in which wearing makeup can give individuals a confidence boost by making them feel more physically attractive, increasing feelings of self-esteem, attitude, and personality.

However, a less well-known effect is that a boost in self-esteem can also boost cognitive abilities.

Previous research has shown that positive emotions can improve academic performance.

Positive emotions

This new study set out to see if the positive boost in self-esteem from wearing makeup could have the same effect.

The female undergraduates were placed into different groups and given a series of tests to complete.

The tests consisted of answering multiple choice questions about a chapter from a general psychology textbook.

Before taking the test, members of one group were asked to apply makeup, another group listened to “a positive music excerpt,” and a third coloured a drawing of a human face.

The team believed that those wearing makeup would experience the greatest boost in positive feelings, and therefore would perform better in the tests than the other two groups.

How Pat McGrath became the world’s most influential makeup artist

In 20 years of interviewing actors, musicians, designers and artists, my audience with Pat McGrath has been the most difficult. Not because she’s chilly or aloof (she’s tactile, warm, prone to outbursts of laughter and the lavish use of “darling”), but because not a minute goes by without a passerby interrupting to tell her how much they admire her, and to my frustration, she spends much of our precious allotted time indulging them.

“You look beautiful, darling,” she purrs to one beauty blogger, as worried publicists look on impatiently. “Let me get someone from my team to do your makeup! It’ll be gorgeous on you,” she says to another. She stops again to pose for a photograph with actor Olivia Palermo (who seems under no illusion that she might be the main attraction here), then again to reel off some social media content and to check an assistant has her trainers. By then our “intimate chat”, in a bustling Parisian penthouse, is rather up against it, because McGrath is due to get on a motorbike to the Ritz, where an unnamed celebrity is waiting to be made up for the red carpet.

She promises a follow-up within days, and so begins almost a fortnight of postponements, briefing calls, time-zone complications and several profuse apologies as beauty’s biggest hitter paints, dusts and blends her way across dozens of faces and two continents. Truly, I have interviewed more accessible Oscar winners.

The reason I’ve been granted this extremely rare face time with the world’s most influential makeup artist is that she’s just launched her eponymous makeup line, Pat McGrath Labs, in Europe. The brand has already smashed the US, where McGrath lives in two New York West Village apartments, one above the other, though she is barely ever in either. She’s mostly on the road, working on magazine covers for the likes of Vogue, Harpers and W, the faces of celebrities such as Rihanna and Kim Kardashian, on advertising campaigns for Versace, Prada, Louis Vuitton and Gucci, and designing the makeup looks for around 80 major fashion shows per year (she is widely acknowledged as the most prolific catwalk makeup artist of all time). She travels from one fashion capital to another with dozens of makeup cases and a huge team of between 25 and 90 devoted artists to carry them all. “The most we’ve ever taken is 87 trunks,” she tells me. “I’ve collected everything for about 25 years. I’d go into a department store now and buy everything. It’s who I am. I just love cosmetics.”

 

McGrath qualifies this by telling me that she has filled 4,000 square feet of storage with products and says “You couldn’t get anyone more makeup addicted than me”, perhaps because she knows her passion for face paint isn’t immediately apparent. Much like the most celebrated fashion experts wear only black (she does, too – today she’s in a long black skirt, matching shirt and her signature wide black headband), the world’s top makeup artist doesn’t appear to be wearing the stuff herself. “I wear very natural makeup but it’s made up out of five foundations to make that perfect skin and my lipstick might be three different lipsticks mixed together, so it’s a kind of obsession in a different way,” she laughs.

If beauty is McGrath’s addiction, her single mother was her pusher. McGrath was raised in Northampton by Jean, whose love of God was matched only by an extraordinary fascination with everything fashion and beauty. From as early as McGrath can remember, working class, Jamaican-born, Jehovah’s Witness Jean was schooling her in advanced aesthetic awareness. “My mother was obsessed with makeup,” she says. “She would stand in front of the TV and we’d have to guess what she’d done differently with her eyes. I’d think: ‘Get out of the way!’ But she wouldn’t move until I’d told her.” Together they would analyse the makeup looks of Old Hollywood film stars, identifying which had inspired fashion designers that season.

Jean encouraged McGrath to be creative with makeup, mixing pigments from scratch to get exactly the right colour, adding heat to the skin with her fingertips to give it a healthier glow and soften the look of foundation. She explains: “She always put on a full face of makeup then got in the bath to get that dewy finish. It was next level, but this is where I got my makeup tips from – at seven years old!” Together, Jean (a talented dressmaker) and McGrath would go and look at Vogue patterns, then off to the market, where all the fabric buyers sold their remnants, before deciding which makeup would best go with the clothes.

How K-Pop Group BlackPink Approach Beauty & Makeup: ‘When I Care About Minute Details, I Only Get More Confident’

After landing their third number one track on the Billboard World Digital Sales Chart, emerging K-Pop group Blackpink is gaining traction globally thanks to their upbeat pop songs, all of which were released within a year of signing to YG Entertainment in 2016. 

“We’re really shocked because we actually haven’t been to or properly introduced ourselves to people in the States,” vocalist Rosé previously told Billboard during a Skype call about their newfound success.

While the quartet’s hip-hop influenced choreography and synth-heavy singles such as “Playing With Fire,” or “As If It’s Your Last”–which recently surpassed the 100 million views milestone on YouTube–are impressive, the group’s feminine and flirty collective sense of style are equally as attention-grabbing.

“During my training, we had monthly assessments,” Lisa Manoban, one of the group’s stars, told Billboard in an exclusive interview. “It was my first time doing makeup by myself, and I did not even know how to draw on the eyebrows. Since then, I started to look for makeup related videos on YouTube and naturally became more interested.”

That interest lead Manoban and her co-member Jennie Kim to incorporating beauty must-haves into their daily routine most Westerners wouldn’t think of, like brightly colored contact lenses to be “more exotic” or applying a whitening eye cream as a pre-makeup ritual to create a flawless base for glittery pastel eyeshadows.

“On stage, my look should be the total opposite of my look off-stage,” Kim says. “On stage, I like to show all the different sides of me, as much as possible. I want to try a feminine style but mix it up with sexy or hip-hop elements. When I care about the most minute details, such as matching accessories to the entire outfit, I only get more confident on stage.”

That same strict attention to detail is practiced off stage as well. While Manoban loves “red lips, a glowing complexion, contouring and a smokey eye,” she says “it is acceptable to have no eyeliner, but mascara is a must.” As for Kim? “My style varies on my mood or the weather of the day,” she says. “I do not stick to one style only and prefer mixing and matching brands with sort of casual-meets-cool sentiment. I find a blatantly girly style with no charm boring.”

Male makeup counters could be coming in ‘five to seven years,’ according to industry insider

Male make-up counters could become a reality within five years, the UK boss of L’Oreal has said, as it is no longer a taboo for the “selfie generation”.

In an interview with the Daily Telegraph, Vismay Sharma, the cosmetics giant’s UK managing director, said that demand for make-up among men was growing fast. 

Speaking about the industry as a whole, he said male-targeted counters in department stores and drug stores could be a reality in “five to seven years”.

According to Mr Sharma taboos are changing and make-up is becoming more accepted for men among what he describes as the “selfie generation”.

Men know they can use make up, and they know what it does when you use itVismay Sharma

He said: “Today you have a very small proportion of men who want to use make up products but that proportion is growing and it will continue to grow. I think its just awareness – two things are happening, men know they can use make up, and they know what it does when you use it.

 

“The second thing is that the taboos are going, so between my generation and my son’s generation the taboos are very different.”

best_male_makeup_gurus_artists_vloggers_Alan_Macias5

“Is the trend going to go towards bold colours or more subtle? I don’t know. But what I do know is we are listening very carefully to consumers and what they want.”

 

It comes after online retailer ASOS this week launched a male-only beauty range from MMUK, which includes a concealer, beard and brow filler and mascara. 

 

Co-founder Alex Dalley said: “We hope that this move places make-up for men on the radars of thousands of guys out there who simply want to look their best everyday.”

 

And at the higher end of the market fashion titan Tom Ford has also launched a small collection of male grooming products including an eyebrow maintenance kit and a concealer set. The brand’s “Brow Gelcomb” is reported to have rocketed in sales, showing it clientele feel the need to keep their “over-eye caterpillars” well-tended.

 

To cater to the growing demand for men’s cosmetics, make-up artists who usually cater for women’s only customer bases are starting to post tutorials on their websites specifically for men to provide them with tips and tricks. 

 

Make-up mogul Charlotte Tilbury’s website reads: “I get so many requests from men asking how they too can benefit from the power of skincare and make-up products.” Describing a video on her site, she said: “This is a masculine approach to beauty – helping you to look and feel revived after a late night or a long winter, for a job interview or date, or when you just need a skin pick-me-up.”

 

It is the first time that men and teenage boys are being offered a dedicated range of concealers and foundations to subtly improve their appearance and boost confidence. The male make-up revolution also offers more accessible solutions for men suffering from spots and skin conditions to cover their blemishes without resorting to using “women’s” products.

 

And as make-up trends evolve, men could also see bolder forms of make-up such as eyeliner and eyeshadow included in mainstream cosmetics offerings.

 

Last year 26-year-old beauty blogger, Gary Thompson, became the first man to star in a make-up advert. 

 

Featuring in L’Oreal’s True Match Foundation advert alongside celebrities including Cheryl Fernandez-Versini, Gary talks about finally being true to himself and embracing who he is. At the time he said: “I think we’ve come far with accepting men wearing makeup.

 

“If you look at it five years’ ago, if you thought of men wearing make-up you’d think of extreme sparkly eyeshadow but today it doesn’t have to be like that. You could wear a good foundation, a good contour, a natural base and it doesn’t have to be extreme.”

Beauty Blogger Describes Asians as ‘Ching Chongs,’ Twitter Users Force Her to Shut Down Online Presence

A Switzerland-based beauty blogger landed in hot water when she referred to Asians using a pejorative phrase and her apology didn’t make matters any better.

Chanel Brusco, known as Cocomadkilla online, posted about the Korean cosmetic brand Glowrious, on a July 1 blog and marveled at the makeup available in Asia. She seemed to drive home how distant the continent is by describing people who live there as “‘Ching chongs’ with the black hair and funny clothes” who “many of us don’t always understand.”

The post was captured as a screenshot by the Twitter account E & SE Asian Beauty and went viral Tuesday, July 18, with many slamming Brusco.

 
 

Cocomadkilla apologized soon after, making note of her friends of “different origins and cultures” and declaring she is “against any kind of racism.”

Brusco’s statement didn’t cause Twitter users to warm up to her and the YouTuber has since made her Instagram account private and closed her website.
