Bandelettes Lace Thigh Bands

Posted on: April 14th, 2014

(Taken from the Bandelettes website homepage) “We are the home of the unique and one-of-a-kind Bandelettes. Gone are the days when wearing a gorgeous skirt or a summer dress seemed impossible. As women, many of us have to deal with painful chafing and irritation of the skin in the inner thighs due to frequent rubbing. The exclusively trademarked and patented Bandelettes are designed to address a common problem that many women encounter on a day-to-day basis.”

Sexy Bandelettes

I love these, for me, it’s not for the chaffing issue so much but simply for the comfort and “Glamour” associated with Bandelettes Lace Thigh Bands.

Little Bumps?

Posted on: April 11th, 2014

Do you have little bumps on the back of your arms? Here’s how to begin to get rid of them naturally.

arm bumps

If you suffer from bumps on the backs of your arms called keratosis pilaris, you’re not alone. Keratosis pilaris affects nearly half of adults and occurs when excess keratin plugs the skin by trapping hair follicles. You might experience pesky bumps or thickening of the skin. If you do, don’t turn to acne creams to solve the problem. Acne is a completely different skin issue.

If you talk to your dermatologist, she will likely recommend starting with a topical treatment. These can be very effective. But you need to look for one specifically designed to treat keratosis pilaris, especially a moisturizer with lactic acid or urea. Use it twice a day to help break down the thickened skin. Try AmLactin 12% Moisturizing Cream or ask your dermatologist what she recommends.

While you’re helping your skin improve, make sure you don’t make the condition worse by taking hot showers or using abrasive scrubs. Treat your skin gently so you don’t exacerbate the issue.

If an over-the-counter moisturizer doesn’t help, your dermatologist may give you a prescription for Carmol 10 or Lac-Hydrin. Topical retinol products, such as Retin-A, Retin-A Micro, Evita, or Adapalene may help as well, but you should discuss using them with your doctor. Since retinols increase cell turnover, they can help your pores unclog. But they also can have side effects.

Before going to your dermatologist, though, there might be another way to treat the problem. It’s important that you treat the cause of the problem. And it’s possible that keratosis pilaris is a symptom of a vitamin deficiency and essential fatty-acid imbalance. Omega-3 fatty acids are naturally anti-inflammatory. While there isn’t any research on their effectiveness at resolving keratosis pilaris, some people have had good results. However, there’s something you can take with an omega-3 essential fatty-acid product that can make it work even better.

I suggest you start by taking an omega-3 fatty-acid product like Complete Daily Oils . If that doesn’t work by itself within a few weeks, then combine it with a digestive enzyme. A formula like Integrative Digestive Formula has enzymes that work very well with the fatty acids to help clear up skin. A common issue for individuals with keratosis pilaris is poor fat digestion. Using a digestive enzyme can often make a significant difference not only on the back of your arms, but your entire body’s skin, as well as your hair and nails. This usually takes a couple of months to begin to notice a difference.

You don’t have to let keratosis pilaris bother you. Add one of these solutions to your skin-care routine now, and you’ll be ready to show off your arms by summer!

Arch Madness: The Power of the Brow

European Wax Center Releases its Brow Beauty Trends for Spring

FLORIDA (March 26, 2014) – With winter on its way out and spring playing hide and seek, it’s time for everyone to refresh their beauty regime from head to toe, and where better to start than with your brows. With services that includes shaping and waxing, European Wax Center (EWC) has earned its title as the Experts in Eyebrows.

“Between November 2012 and December 2013, EWC performed 1.6 million brow services solidifying our position as the authority on brows,” said David Coba, President of European Wax Center.

Brows highlight your face, frame your eyes and have the ability to tell a story. Ultimately brows determine your expression and that is why they have grown to become a woman’s most treasured accessory. From bold to sculpted, EWC has the scoop on high brows and low brows of beauty trends this spring:

An EWC favorite is always a full, strong brow. If you want to soften the look, simply go with a slightly lower arch.

While EWC loves that full brow, sometimes it’s just not in the cards. A thinner brow with a higher arch can accentuate strong and powerful eyes.

The shape of your brow should flatter your face. Soften a square face by rounding the arch. Alternatively, an angled high arch can bring definition to a rounder face.

A lighter more manicured eyebrow can give your face the fresh look you’ve been longing for. Hint: Bring the end to a graceful point, this adds femininity and is a characteristic of a manicured brow.

Finally, regardless of whether you have a bold brow or skinny brow, high arch or low arch, always make your brows the focal point of your face by using a brow powder to define your perfect shape.

Now, booking a reservation at your local EWC is easier than ever. Book from home or on the go from any mobile device at:
