15 Beauty Hacks, You need to know.

Some wise person said “To be successful in life you don’t need to do hard work but smart work”. Taking inspiration from these words i came up with these Beauty Hacks.

To get flawless results all you need is some tricks and not skills.

So in this post I have put together all the hacks i use in my personal life and also the ones i have researched on.

#Hack 1

Cover all those blemishes flawlessly.

To hide that awkward pimple all you need to do is layer it with foundation, concealer and setting powder and ensure that it doesn’t stand out of your face.

#Hack 2

Apply foundation before concealer.

To highlight the concealed areas effectively first set you face with the foundation and then conceal it. This way you don’t even need much concealer and it will work more effectively also.

# Hack 3

Bake your face with Translucent powder.

Complete you under eye base and then sprinkle some translucent powder to bake or cook your face and then dust it off.

# Hack 4

Reduce hair frizz by wiping it up with your T-shirt.

Terry cloth towels pulls too much moisture from your hair, which makes it frizzy, but the smooth cotton of a shirt will remove the excess water and leave your hair frizz free or at least less frizzy.

#Hack 5

Pour Tap water on your Hair before swimming.

To prevent your hair from chlorine or salt water damage, rinse your hair first with tap water before submerging it in the pool or ocean. Your Porous hair strands will absorb the tap water, preventing the chemical from damaging your hair.

#Hack 6

Pin two braids together for an intricate hairstyle.

Don’t need to spend ample time on making a masterpiece hairstyle, instead braid two pigtails on the back of your head, secure them with hair ties and then discreetly bobby pin them together

#Hack 7

Wash your brushes with a gentle face wash

.Your brushes gather germs and bacteria’s which can cause breakouts. Gently rub the bristles of your brush with a face wash or a dish washer liquid soap and then rinse.Remember the cleaner your brush the better your makeup application will be.

#Hack 8

Use different concealer for under eye and your blemishes

gallery-1439758808-1434378981-syn-2-nrm-1417821260-12

Your under concealer should be one shade lighter then your skin but if you use it for your blemishes it will highlight it more so go for a creamy concealer that matches your skin tone , to conceal it smoothly.

#Hack 9

Sharpen your lips edge with concealer

gallery-1439760416-1434379041-syn-2-nrm-1417820731-11

Leaving your lipstick without lining will make the lipstick bleed into the natural creases of the skin around your mouth. line the outside of your lips with the concealer for a sharp look. this will make your lips pop out.

#Hack 10

Don’t use shimmer products if you have oily skin.

gallery-1439759846-1434379013-syn-2-nrm-1417821307-infographic

Shimmer will make your face look more shinier. Instead swipe to matte bronzer, blushes and concealer a shade lighter than your skin tone to highlight your face.

#Hack 11

Use your phone flashlight to test your makeup in different lighting

If you apply makeup in a room with overhead lighting (which can cast shadows on your makeup). So test your makeup with flashlight of your phone to see you how your makeup will look in different lighting.

Every thing you need to know- Tampons (Facts)

Hey beautiful ladies,

I am back with another post on Everything you need to know series. This time it is about the Tampon facts as promised in my last post.

Tampons are great. I personally find it super comfortable and fuss free and would never like to switch back to pads. I would highly recommend it if you haven’t tried it yet. I am sure you must have found myth-busting post on tampons helpful and informative.

So here are some facts about Tampons you need to know before you start using them.

1. Types of tampons

There are two basic types: one that comes with an applicator and one that comes without. Initially, you could use the applicator tampons and gradually move on to non-applicator ones when you’re used to it. If you are not sure about how to use it you must read the instruction pamphlet and i am sure you will find it helpful or you can only refer to some videos which clearly shows you all the steps.

2. Tampons are available in India.

Tampons are available at any chemist outlets and can be ordered online as well. Mostly O.b pro comfort is available and it is super comfortable and are priced for 195 inr for 20 tampons

3.Different sizes of Tampons.

Tampons come in flow types—heavy, medium, and light. You can choose which one suits you best and which one suits what part of your period.

4. You can sleep with a tampon on.

I have been loving it ever since i started using them because there is absolutely no reason you should worry about sleeping with a tampon on. In fact, tampons can prevent staining on your clothes and bed sheet far more efficiently than a pad.

5.  It can prevent staining.

When worn properly and changed in time), tampons can be a blessing, especially, if you’re doing anything that demands a lot of movement. It prevents staining and you don’t need to face any awkward and embarrassing moments. Most sportswomen prefer tampons over any other menstrual hygiene product. Now you know the reason :p

6. You can swim wearing tampons.

You cant use Sanitary napkins while swimming but with a tampon, you can. Wearing a tampon can be a blessing for a regular swimmer, or someone who’s making a trip to the beach. Water also relaxes your system and helps reduce cramps and muscle spasms. A tampon can be your faithful friend to keep you stress free, while getting rid of the already mind-numbing pain.

7. Tampons cannot fall out.

Tampons can’t just ‘slip out’ of your vagina because of your cervix, its not a never ending tunnel!. When you want to remove it, all you need to do is relax your muscles and tug at the string and pull out the tampon the way you inserted it. You might feel a little weird at first but it will be okay after you get a hang on it.

8. Must change your Tampon within 4 hours.

Wearing a tampon for more than 24 hours could possibly increase your risk of Toxic Shock Syndrome (TSS)—a very rare, yet life threatening infection. So, to be on the safer side, make sure you don’t wear your tampon beyond 8 hours. Ideally, on a heavy flow day, change your tampon every 3-4 hours.

Everything you need to know -Tampons (Myths)

Hey Beautiful ladies,

I have been brainstorming a lot from quite a few days about what blog post should I write about. Then I realized that there are certain fields which remain unvoiced at times but plays a very crucial role in our lives. So i thought why not talk about it, it is absolutely normal and nothing to be ashamed about.

I will be doing a series of Everything you need to know which will mostly cover about the unspoken beauty. I will try posting a new post on this series every week.

As I assume most of you are young teenagers and must be eager to know about your bodies and a healthier lifestyle, but usually are afraid to talk about with the fear of being judged and to face awkward discussions. I think every one of us faces similar problem at certain point of time but its absolutely normal to talk about and it is good be aware then to remain unaware

I will start over with the topic Tampons. Why Tampons? Tampons might look intimidating at first but after you  know about it, you will switch on to it for sure. It is a popular hygiene product among women in foreign countries. But here, in India, it is often looked at with apprehension and is rarely the first choice for a woman on her period. Surrounded by myths and misguidance, tampon usage hasn’t really picked up here.I am taking this opportunity to spread the word about a tampon as being completely normal, and arguably, more comfortable than most other hygiene products.

tampon-facts

Lets do some Myth-Busting about everything related to tampons in this post. I’ll be writing a separate post on the facts about Tampons. So stay tuned.

MYTH 1 : You can rupture your hymen and lose your virginity after using tampons.

200_s

The concept of losing your virginity from a tampon is totally bogus.Hymen is an elastic tissue which can easily stretch to accommodate the tampon. It is not necessary that you might harm the hymen while using a tampon. Also, breaking the hymen doesn’t mean you lose your virginity. A hymen can break while exercising, cycling, horseback riding, stretching, etc.  Also, many women are born without a hymen. So an intact hymen is not the proof of  virginity.

MYTH 2 : Tampons can get lost or stuck.

giphy

It’s impossible to lose a tampon inside your body. The vagina is not an endless tunnel! The vaginal canal is only about three to five inches long, ending at the cervix, a tampon may shift around a bit during use, but it can’t get lost inside you. There’s a tiny string that will hang outside, and you can pull it out easily.  Also,  once you get a hang of using tampons, you will know how far you have to insert it. They are safe. The walls of a vagina hold the tampon in place until you pull it out.

MYTH 3 : Tampons hurt to use.

monsters-inc

If inserted properly, you will not feel anything after you’ve worn your tampon. In fact its a total win in comfort.  First-timers can use applicator tampons if you are not used to it yet.

MYTH 4: Tampons affects the flow.

                   parker_posey_omg

It takes one whole day for the blood to reach the opening whereas tampon absorbs the remaining blood of the walls, which reduces a day from your period. Isn’t a great reason to start using a tampon! Total win for me!!!

MYTH 5 : You cant pee while wearing a tampon.

                      boo-bathroom-monsters-inc-pee-dance-1

It can be weird to go to the bathroom with your tampon in, but it’s not dangerous, and you certainly don’t have to change your tampon every time you pee.The vagina and the bladder are all separate systems that do not interconnect,Because the vagina is not connected to the bladder, the urethra, a tampon does not block urine.

MYTH 6 : It can cause Toxic shock syndrome (TSS)

tss

Toxic shock syndrome is produced by a bacteria called Staphylococcus aureus and can have life-threatening complications. However, it is important to note that it is very rare and is caused only when the tampon is left inside the vagina for more than eight hours. So make sure you change your tampon in time,preferably in every 4 hours.

I hope you find this helpful. i will be writing a facts post soon so till then stay tuned.
