Vampire Facelift: The Pros and Cons

vampire-facelift
Did you see Kim Kardashian’s vampire facelift? It looked horrendous and frightening as she cried out with obvious discomfort. In the end, she indicated that it was all worth it. Would you go through anything like this if you knew more about the procedure? Why do they call it vampire face lift anyway? I guess, it probably is because of all the blood involved. This type of facelift is a bit misleading because it uses facial fillers like Restylane and Juvederm does.

The main goal is to smooth out wrinkles and lines on the face. The cosmetic surgeon will draw blood from the patient and use a quick procedure (spinning the blood in a centrifuge) to thin it out; removing the platelets and performing reinjection of the platelets and fibrin into the patient’s face.

The result is a thicker collagen that fills out the face; expunging wrinkles and reducing thinness. Many cosmetic surgeons believe that human plasma injections stimulate new growth of the cells to develop a more youthful appearance, virtually in no time!

Pros

Experts will tell you that the vampire facelift is a very safe technique. It is not life threatening. Upon completing the preparation process, the surgeon will get rid of the red blood cells and inject the remaining yellow serum along with the platelets. New blood vessels will be created, which is good for the skin.

Over a period of time after the injection, volume and glow will be added to the patient’s facial features. It may take as much as eight weeks to visibly see results. You will have healthier skin and eliminate much of your facial blemishes. Sephyl is your own tissue, so the procedure removes any allergic reaction that you may have previously had with other cosmetic procedures.

Cons

There are a wide range of methods that you can use to improve your facial features. In fact, there are many beauty products on the market that have already been proven to work. So if something is already working for you, why try something different?

Even though, surgical facelifts have their place, such processes are not essentially a remedy or solution to the trepidations of an aged face. Cosmetic surgery, when necessary can get rid of excess skin and create a whole younger YOU. Nevertheless, a surgical facelift can be a contributory factor to a face flop as the skin expands snugly against the bone, making the individual appear skeletonized.

Although experts believe that these fillers shouldn’t be used around the eye area, many are still doing so – pushing the gun! The injections can also cause the person to look like he or she is from a different planet. Moreover, it does not improve the skin tone or the texture of the skin.

Conclusion

The Vampire facelift should be a personal decision; depending on what you are trying to accomplish. If you want to rejuvenate your facial features and look young again, there is a price to pay. The procedure when done can be painful, but you may get the look you want afterwards.

Using the Right Hair Care Products

hairproducts1

Are you tired of stocking so many styling gels, curling irons, mousse and supplementary hair care products? Are you spending too much money on finding the right products that work for you? Well, if you are like most other frustrated women who are going through this too, we have some basic tools and products that all women should always have.

Brush: every woman should have the right brush; one that is of the highest quality. A good brush equates healthier hair. Look for one that has a rubber base and boar head bristles. Why? It does less damage to the hair. Look to spend about $11.

Shampoo: the correct shampoo is essential since women have a variety of hair type. Read the ingredients on the bottle. If you have long hair, you may have to shampoo your hair twice. All you are doing is trying to remove the dirt and oil from your hair, but also adding moisture. So choose a shampoo that does both; even if you are going to use a moisturizer separately.

Conditioner: conditioning your hair is very important to having healthy hair. You can opt for a leave-in conditioner or one that you have to rinse out.  Conditioners help to repair the hair from damaging chemicals and heat. Choose one that has moisturizing ingredients that leave the hair free of tangles. Work from the end of the hair to the roots. Comb through to make sure that there are no tangles.

Set of perfumery

Wide-toothed comb: Always avoid using a brush to comb through your wet shampooed hair. Instead, use a wide-toothed comb. You can buy one that ranges from a dollar to ten bucks.

Serum to improve sheen: Don’t count out shine serums because they do work. If your hair texture is fine, you should use only a small portion and a little spritz. However, if you have thick hair, use the serum to smooth out your hair and add sheen to it. You can end up spending as low as five bucks and as high as thirty dollars for a good shine serum.

Dry Shampoo: When you are in between shampoos, a dry shampoo can help to absorb the oil in your hair. If you are low on cash, talcum powder is a good alternative, but don’t use too much because you don’t want to have powder in your hair while going to work.

Blow dryer: this is a must-have product. Get one that is strong and powerful; to get the job done quickly; especially if you have thick or long hair. Get one that you can also put in your travel bag. For thicker hair, go for one that has approximately 1,875 watts. For finer hair, buy one that has 1,500 watts.

Curling iron: for women with straight hair, a curling iron is a best friend to keep handy. I wouldn’t recommend over using it since too much heat can damage the hair. Use only when it is really necessary.

Mousse: this is excellent for people who have fine hair. It adds volume to the hair. If your hair is coarse, however, you should opt for a straightening balm to eliminate frizzing.

Conclusion

Using the right hair care products is essential to maintaining beautiful hair that will turn heads. You also want to have healthy hair that will make you more confident so be wise in the products that you choose to put in your hair.

Beauty tips for Bedtime

healthy-beautyiful-skin

Ladies – you should always follow the proper beauty routine at bedtime. Why? It helps to maintain your beauty and youthful appearance for years to come. It makes you feel good, look good and gives you the confidence you need. Your life as a woman can be hectic and sometimes, you may be too busy to even think about pampering yourselves, but believe me, it is necessary; not only for beauty’s sake, but for your overall health, hygiene and self-esteem. You will feel more attractive and innately feminine.

The benefits

The benefits outweigh the time you have to devote to this little ritual each day and night. The best products will get the best results. Remember, that exposure to the sun, sweat and other air pollutants during the day time can damage your skin. At night, your skin will be able to absorb the application of excellent skin products without interference from the outdoor influences. The pores in your skin need the essential beauty crèmes and moisturizers to be rejuvenated and repaired.

In addition, those products that will make your skin look oily and sticky during the day time can be applied on your skin at night. There are more benefits than disadvantages in enhancing and improving your skin before bedtime as long as you use hypoallergenic and natural products. It is recommended that you use FDA approved products.

Here are some really good tips to follow:

  • Never, never, never go to bed with makeup on
  • To get that youthful and fresh appearance, use skin moisturize before you retire for the night
  • Use a sweet-scented lotion to soothe you mentally before bedtime
  • Use a wide toothed comb on your hair to increase blood circulation on your scalp

The wisdom in taking off your makeup

Makeup might not take long to apply during the mornings, but after you have had a long day at the office and come home tired, it might seem like quite a task to get that lipstick, cream, powder, foundation, eyeliner and eye shadow off before crawling into bed exhausted. Forget the excuses. It will be worth it!

The reasons:

  • Leaving makeup on overnight will result in skin breakouts, blemishes or acne
  • Dirt and bacteria from the environment will clog your pores and damage your skin
  • Your skin won’t be able to breathe well with makeup left on. It creates a barrier between the air and your epidermis
  • Your skin will age faster as a result of not removing makeup with a facial cleanser and then applying a moisturizer or anti-aging crème
  • You will have supple, youthful and soft skin if you carry out your bedtime beauty habit

Other tips

It is preferred that you sleep on satin sheets and pillow cases. Why? This helps you to avoid any extreme friction between the sheets, your hair and skin. It reduces the chances of hair breakage and skin creases that may result in future wrinkles. Apply a lip balm at night as well. This protects your lips, keeps it soft and prevents it from stripping.

Your skin, hair and face are not to be taken for granted. You only have several years to take care of it right before the aging process begins. Why do you think some people age gracefully? It is because they did a good job while they were younger. The time is now and it is never too late at all!

Try a Retinoid for Younger Skin

Lotions or creams that contain a retinoid are your best shot at making your skin look younger. Piles of research prove that this vitamin A derivative really can undo wrinkles and discoloration caused by sun damage. At the drugstore, look for the word “retinol” in the ingredients list (the higher up it appears on that list, the better); one great option is RoC Retinol Correxion Deep Wrinkle Night Cream ($22, drugstores). A dermatologist can prescribe a stronger retinoid cream, like Retin-A or Tazorac. Retinoids can be irritating at first, so ramp up slowly until you can tolerate using one every night. You should apply a retinoid cream on your neck as well, but because that skin can be more sensitive, use it more sparingly and not necessarily nightly.

OMG – your lips are NAKED!

Nude lips are the beauty style statement of our time. They’ve officially transcended from a trend into a new classic. Originally applied to downplay the rest of the face when a dramatic smoky eye, lengthy lashes or a major blush moment took center stage, they’ve now officially stolen the spotlight. And believe the hype: Whether you’re fair and blond like Charlize Theron or have a medium complexion like Jessica Alba, they really are universally flattering!
