Beauty and the Beach

Beauty and the Beach

The lithe body dream we all aspire to, some with more success than others! But by following this program, anyone can tan evenly and above all safely.

In preparation

Before you spread your towel on the sand and lie down to bask in the glorious sunshine, take a long, hard look at your body. See anything that shouldn’t be there such as patches of dry skin, or cellulite? During winter it’s easy to turn a blind eye to these problems but in summer, if you’re striving for a smooth, even, healthy looking tan, something will have to be done about such skin problems.

Cellulite, most often found on the hips, thighs and buttocks, can be discouraged by massaging affected areas daily with a loofah (A rough bath sponge, made from the dried inner part of a tropical fruit) during a bath. Follow this up with an anti cellulite oil massaged into skin and get some regular exercise; walking, swimming or cycling are good choices. The body shop chain has a selection of excellent natural loofahs and anti-cellulite oil. A loofah mitt, used with a good exfoliate, will also take care of day, flaky skin and removes the rough edges from elbows and feet.

If you don’t polish up these rough edges before you stretch out in the sun, you’ll end up with a patchy tan – and that is not what you’re after.

Tan accelerators

In the past year or so there have been many pre-tan accelerators released on the market. These accelerators should be applied to the body three to four days prior to exposure, although many companies suggest three weeks before exposure for an optimum tan. They are said to speed up the melanin production of the skin, therefore giving more protection in the first few days of tanning. But they are definitely not sunscreens and should not be used as such. Always apply a sunscreen as well before going out in the sun. Several pre-tan accelerators you might try.

Tan smart

Gone are the days of lathering on lots of oil and baking your body in the sun. To protect your skin from premature aging, wrinkles and skin cancer, it is very important to take extreme care while exposing your whole body to the sun.

* Sunscreens won’t stop you getting a tan, but they will slow down the rate at which you tan and help filter harmful rays.

* A sunscreen will not protect you all day. If you normally burn after 10 minutes in the sun and you use a Sun Protection Factor of 15, you can be guaranteed only 150 minutes of protection before you begin to burn. Re-applying your sunscreen will not give you any more protection for 72 hours after this exposure.

* Your sunscreen can fall by up to 50 percent after swimming, so always re-apply your sunscreen when you get out of the water.

* UVB and UVA rays can penetrate cloud and still burn your skin.

* UVB rays are the strongest burning rays, so go out in the sun before 10am and after 2pm, if you don’t want to fry.

* Even if you are under an umbrella or have a hat on you will get the reflection of UVB rays from the sand and the water, so make sure you wear a sunscreen.

The right sunscreen

All sunscreen are categorized as high, maximum and moderate.

* Moderate is the SPF between 4-8 for people who burn or tan moderately.

* High includes SPF between 8-15 for anyone who burns easily and tans slightly.

* Maximum is the SPF of 15 + for anyone who burns but never tans.

* Board spectrum sun lotions screen all the UVA and UVB rays.

Protecting your children

* By allowing your children to go out in the sun without any protection you are increasing the risk of them getting a melanoma skin cancer, later in life or of aging prematurely.

* Make sure your children wear a sunscreen, T-shirt and a hat whenever they are out in the sun and don’t allow them to be exposed for too long. There are many good sunscreens for children; you may choice any one of them.

Sensitive spots

One of the least lovely aspects of the sun is its magical ability to conjure cracks and blisters where there were once smooth, clear lips. It can also create lines around eyes and mouth, which tend to turn into deep crevices before too long. Use a total sun block or an SPC 15 + on your face and neck areas at all times if you don’t want to pay the high price of neglect. Keep lips smooth and crack free with special lip sunscreens.

Fake tans

* If you have read this far and finally decided the sun is just not for you, why not try a fake tan? Today there are some excellent ones on the market which won’t make you look like a carrot gone wrong.

* Before you do anything, you still have to prepare your skin, whether you are going out in the sun or not. Start by exfoliating all over with a loofah mitt and an exfoliate cream. Avoid heavy scrubs which can often be much too abrasive and irritating. Once you think your skin is silky smooth all over, you are ready to apply you tan. Here are some tips.

* Many fake tans are in cream or lotion form and don’t show their true colors until hours after application. Test some first on a patch of skin on your hand, dry and leave until color forms.

* Now you know what to expect, apply to the body in smooth, easy motions with either your fingers or a sea sponge, for an even, all-over finish. Allow the lotion or cream to dry completely before putting on clothes or hopping into bed. This will ensure it doesn’t rub off on clothes or become a streaky mess.

* Always wash your hands well under hot water, with a scrubbing brush and soap, paying special attention to the skin between fingers.

* If you decide you want to go darker still, apply one or two extra coats, allowing each one to dry between applications.

*Take special care of hands and feet, so they don’t look streaky or blotchy, and also keens and the backs of knees. Get someone to do your back for you.

* If you just want to give your face some color, try one of the many tinted foundation moisturizers, available in market.

* Take the best tints for legs or for filling in strap marks and so on. It is like a colored water lotion, which tints the skin immediately on application and easily hides white strap marks or colors legs instantly. The color builds up after several applications. Always leave to dry between applications, and use a natural sea sponge, not fingers, for a smooth finish.

Odd And Ugly Stretch Marks

Posted By: admin on May 3, 2011 in Beauty Guide, Immortal Beauty, Natural Skin Care Tips, Skin Care Tips, Tips for Skin Care - Comments: Comments Off on Odd And Ugly Stretch Marks

Stretch Marks on woman faceOne day when you are standing in front of your mirror and the light is coming to your face properly, you come to know about the marks on your face, stretching marks. How odd and ugly it is! Then you want to know the cause and get rid of them. Here is briefing:

Stretch marks known as “striae gravidarum” in medical are caused by major stretching of the skin. Pregnancy, rapid weight gain or loss and when you become 14 and become young, are the main causes of stretch marks. In fact, we have three layers of skin: the outer layer which is called epidermis, the middle layer called dermis and the innermost layer is subcutaneous stratum. Stretch marks occur in the middle layer, dermis. The elastic and supple middle layer that helps the skin keeps its shape.

When the dermis is frequently stretched, the skin becomes less elastic and the small joining fibers within it break and as a result, give harm to the skin and the stretch marks appear. Near about half of all pregnant women and almost every teenager have these troublesome and nasty stretch marks. Whereas in the case of pregnant women, the stretch begin to develop on the abdomen area, during the second half of pregnancy, as the skin stretches to make an accommodation for the upcoming baby.

Gradually the reddish pigments in the marks

Become dim and dull, and the stretch marks begin to look like shining silvery lines of scar tissue. The story of stretch marks begin when your weight increases or decreases, but if you manage it to maintain it on a constant level, the stretch marks will not be problem. So take care of overweight and underweight.

Ways to prevent

For removal and prevention of stretch marks, here are some suggestions:

* For increasing circulation of blood massage your skin with a glove, it is not advisable to use your palms.

* For avoiding stretch marks, it is necessary to make it supple and soft by apply moisturizing cream on the affected areas daily.

* Remove dead cells from your skin in order to make it smoother and unveiling soft, fresh skin. It will help minimizing the appearance of stretch marks, depending on the location of the scar tissues. If you want do it yourself this process, take oatmeal or baking soda. You may choice the already prepared formulas available on stores.

* After exfoliation the skin become dehydrated, so apply plenty of moisturizer to make it supple and soft.

* For refreshing your skin, eat such nutrition which may provide overall health. Vitamins C, E, Zinc and Silica are most compulsory.

* There are different types of creams selling in market for the remedy of stretch marks and improvement of texture on skin. May be some give relief, but mostly give no effect. The use of these creams on severe stretch marks, which are a year old, may not show any improvement. Before buying such creams, be careful and read the labels, then make a decision which is really useful for you.

* For old stretch marks, laser treatment is prescribed. They are expensive, and can minimize the pain in minor. These methods can’t actually repair torn fibers in the skin, but they improve the appearance of stretch marks.

* There is also an alternate for removing stretch marks is cosmetic surgery, otherwise there is not any procedure to repair damaged skin fibers. In cosmetic surgery doctors pull the remaining skin tight. This surgery also improves the appearance of stretch marks.

It is not easy to remove stretch marks fully; you can make an extreme improvement in their appearance using the above mentioned treatments. It will be beneficial to discuss the various options with your doctor.

Moisturizer For Your Supple Skin

Posted By: admin on April 30, 2011 in Beauty Guide, Beauty Through Health, Skin Care Tips, Tips for Skin Care - Comments: Comments Off on Moisturizer For Your Supple Skin

Moisturizer For Your Supple SkinYour skin is your body’s first line of defense against a world teeming with chemicals, bacteria and fungi. The system is just about flawless, until you allow its moisture balance to be upset. Skin that’s constantly dry or cracked, and opens up easily, is more sensitive to bacterial attack, so be careful for it. The same is true of skin that’s bloated with fluids. But informed use of moisturizers can help prevent such cracks of your body’s defense-and thus head off a lot of potential skin problems.

Skin knowledge

Knowing your skin type gets you off to a good start, because moisturizers work differently on every one-even those with the same skin type. If a moisturizer keeps your skin supple without any negative side effects, you’ve got a winner. A loser, when used repeatedly, can block pores and lead to spots. There’s a way to reduce the chances of this happening, through.

Most of the larger cosmetic companies test their products to make them as not causing acne, as possible, if you routinely have trouble with acne,  you select a moisturizer that states that it’s been tested in 10,000 who reacts to the product with blemishes, but at least the odds are in your favor. Be on the lookout for perfumes and preservatives in moisturizers that might cause you to develop contact dermatitis. It’s a condition that scales and may burn, sting or itch. The best way to prevent this reaction is to have your skin doctor test you to determine which ingredient causes the problem, and then avoid it. Remember to think twice about all the above considerations, once for your face and once for the rest of your body. Your facial may require one moisturizing formula; the rest of your skin, another. The skin on your face is more sensitive then elsewhere and may even be a different skin type.

Take care for your eyes

Be careful what moisturizer you use around your eyes, because skin there is thinner. Anything that causes a reaction on the skin of your face will cause a reaction four times greater around your eyes. It may be fine to use your moisturizer as an eye cream for softening your skin only, with no active ingredient that claims to change the physiology of your skin. But if your daily moisturizer claims to change your skin, consider using a separate eye cream. If you want it to double as an eye cream, use it elsewhere on your face for at least a month. Only if there have been no nasty reactions should you try it around your eyes.

A moisturizer formulated specifically for use around the eyes usually has a light texture that doesn’t spoil the delicate skin in this area. Apply anything in this delicate area with a light hand. Use your ring finger and a patting motion to apply nourishment or makeup around the eyes.

Over hydration

Moisturizing is also tricky where there are skin folds, such as between your toes-places where you perspire more, even without moisturizers these spots are susceptible to being over hydrated-retaining too much fluid-a problem you rarely encounter on the face. Over hydration is frequently compounded by clothing or shoes that don’t allow the sweat to evaporate. If you apply a moisturizer to wet skin, there’s no chance of evaporation from the skin’s surface. All the moisture that’s generated is held there. Athlete’s foot is a good example of a problem that can be made worse by over hydration. When it’s warm and moist between your toes, there’s a warm ‘garden’ environment in which the fungus can flourish. Moisturizers may then provide the nutrients for that fungus to feed upon, especially if the product is old and the preservative in the oil is no longer working. If you have a fungal infection, you want to eliminate these ideal conditions. Keep the skin around your toes clean and dry and don’t use a moisturizer there until the condition has disappeared.

So the general rule is avoided moisturizing in skin-fold areas unless they feel especially dry.


Before applying any moisturizer, ask you, is it fresh? The shelf life of creams and lotion, as for all cosmetics, is a maximum of one to two years. After that, the ingredients no longer have an element that protects them against bacterial and fungal attack. It’s especially important to use fresh products around your eyes. We see a lot of problems with old and decaying products getting into the eye. When you apply a facial moisturizer, gently rub it on to relax underlying muscles, massaging for 10 seconds. The massage won’t help get rid of wrinkles, but if it feels good, it may help ease stress lines a bit.

If your body skin is sensitive to pimples try applying moisturizers in the direction of your hair follicles. Applying against the follicles makes them more likely to set up in the pores and cause problems.  If you have a skin infection, consult your skin doctor before applying any moisturizer. If a moisturizer itches when you put it on, should probably avoid it. If it produces a rash, you’d better see a doctor to make an enquiry what caused it. It may be only one ingredient out of the 10 that are in the product, but that one ingredient may be in many other products that you can avoid.
