Q:I want to enjoy the outdoors, but my skin gets damaged so easily. What do I do?
A: Freckles may not be as bad as you think. Not enjoying life because of them is a shame. Julianne Moore is proof that there is beauty in freckles.
I’m not saying that you shouldn’t protect your skin from the sun, but you can enjoy life outdoors with high sunscreen protection. A hat and a pair of sunglasses can help you protect your skin as well. If freckles continue to show up, you’ll need to learn to embrace them.
Q: How do I make my cheekbones pop?
A: Applying blush is a trick that you need to master. First of all, opt for lighter blush colours during summer and darker hues for winter. Apply it exactly on the cheekbone line. Move diagonally in a line from the inner end to the outer end using an angled brush. To make it look higher and to give more structure to the cheek area, apply some bronzer directly under the cheekbone.
Q: How dangerous are sun spots? How can I get rid of them?
A: Dark spots are caused by direct and prolonged exposure to UV rays. They can appear at any age and are usually not harmful. People with lighter skin are the ones more susceptible to sun spots.
There are natural methods to diminish the darkness; cosmetic procedures will give you a faster result. The best way to make sure that they are not risky is to consult a dermatologist. The expert can give you advice on the most effective way to eliminate undesirable spots.
Q: My hair is getting thinner. What can do to save my locks?
A: Stress, ageing, genetics and chemicals can be the causes of thin hair. However, there are few tips to make your hair look healthier. You can start by taking a close look at the back of your shampoo bottle. If it says sulphate (most commonly, sodium lauryl sulphate) in its ingredients, stop using it. They are harsh cleansers, which are effective in removing all natural oils from your hair. Without protection, the strands get damaged and frayed easily. So opt for sulphate-free shampoos.
Also handle your hair gently; tresses can break easily. Don’t wash it every day and stop using too much heat. Remember to trim your hair regularly. Eat nutritious foods; after all, you are what you eat!
