Ultimate Fake Tan Tutorial

I’m a strong supporter of fake tanning because there is nothing sexy about skin cells in trauma, which is exactly what you get when you have a burn or tan caused by the sun. I do agree tanned skin can appear to many people has a healthy look and the tinted hue can mask a variety of skin imperfections, but do it from a bottle. Having said all that, if you’re the slightest bit uncoordinated you would know just how difficult it is to master the faux glow. Whether you DIY-it or head to a salon, it requires a little bit of understanding in order to achieve the immaculate tan AND make it last.

Lately I’ve been trying to embrace the fake tan so I achieve a bronze body year round. I’ve shared with you some of my favourite tanning products to use but now it’s time for the golden expert advice. Australian skin finishing expert and St. Tropez ambassador, Brooke O’Brien, has given us the complete rundown of how to fake tan. With her advice I’ve created this step-by-step tutorial for preparing, maintaining and removing a tan.

Female Hair Loss Before and After

Female hair loss and hair thinning are a growing sector within the beauty market. I used to think female hair loss was a beauty issue and as such could be treated with beauty products. Self-inflicted hair loss is my most common concern. I blamed my tight braids, hair irons and chemical damage. However, the fact remains that the leading causes for female hair loss are health related.

When my normal amount of hair fall dramatically increased, with noticeable receding of my hairline, I panicked. I didn’t know where to begin with treating it but I couldn’t understand why it was happening. I’d stop styling my hair in tight do’s, I rarely heat style and I haven’t dyed my hair in almost 2 years. I ruled out self-inflicted hair loss so I went straight to my GP (doctor) to ask for advice. It turns out that my female hair loss was completely reversible for less than $20!  Continue Reading

Beauty blogger Kimberly Nissen of The Plastic Diaries reviews Trefiel Lace Face Mask, Moisturising sheet mask skincare.

If you follow beauty on Instagram it’s highly likely you’ve seen the Trefiel Lace Sheet Mask. They look like a piece of black lace, often seen adorning the faces of cute beauty influencers. What they actually are is a range of sheet masks. Really pretty sheet masks.

Trefiel initially launched with just the Moisturising mask but later rebranded and added 3 more masks to the line-up. I chose to review their original Moisturising Face Mask.  Continue Reading
