5 Reasons to Wear Sunglasses More Often

When people think of sunglasses, they usually think of the beach. They think of hot and sunny summers, they think of shielding their eyes from the brightness and they might even consider them a fashionable accessory.

Top 5 Most Common Skin Conditions

Unfortunately, most people face issues with their skin from time to time – it’s just a fact of life. There’s hardly anyone out there with perfect skin (as nice as that would be!) and everyone will look for ways in which to achieve healthy skin. This can be through specialised treatments, using skin products, living a healthier lifestyle, etc. 

If you’re facing one of the following skin conditions, just know that you aren’t alone and there can be ways in which to help them:

Acne 

Perhaps the most common skin disorder globally is acne. A skin disorder that causes spots either on one area of the body or several parts, it comes in many forms. From blackheads to whiteheads, the severity of acne will vary person to person. A condition that is commonly faced by young adults (but can also develop in older adults), it can feel as though there is no way to get rid of it. 

But don’t worry, there is a light at the end of the tunnel! To fight the acne battle, you should follow a strict face care regime, washing your face twice a day and applying gel/cream that’s specifically designed for it. 

If you’ve faced acne in the past, you might either have scars or dark spots. There are numerous ways that you can get rid of dark spots on your face, including a chemical peel and Microdermabrasion. 

Vitiligo

Vitiligo is a skin condition faced by millions of people around the world. Causing pale white patches on the skin, it’s a long-term condition that will affect the skin’s appearance. Although this can’t be completely improved, there are things you can do to help with the contrasting colour – including using steroid creams and phototherapy. 

Eczema 

Another common skin condition is eczema. Affecting those of all ages, it causes the skin to have a rash and become itchy. There are three main types of eczema, including Atopic Dermatitis, Nummular Dermatitis and Allergic Contact Dermatitis. To prevent the skin from drying out and hydrated, no matter what type you have, it’s recommended to moisturise regularly. 

Hives 

This temporary skin condition causes itchy rashes on your skin and can affect various parts of the body. Caused by either an allergic reaction, stress, tight clothes or illnesses, there are numerous preventive practices, such as using antihistamines. 

Psoriasis 

A genetic skin condition, psoriasis is caused by a buildup of excess skin tissue. Red and thick, it will look as though your skin has dried up. Most commonly found on elbows and knees (but is also found on other parts of the body), there are special creams and treatments that you can use to help with it.

Final Thoughts


Those are just 5 of the most common skin conditions that millions of people face internationally. If you’ve noticed any of these, don’t worry! A visit to the doctor will be incredibly beneficial and will point you in the right direction as to what treatment you can undertake.

Is Your Wardrobe Fit For Winter?

As we enter the winter season, it’s all too easy to wrap yourself up in unflattering baggy chunky knits and jeans. In the summer, it’s easier to find flattering attire as there seems to be more fabrics and outfits to choose from. In the winter, fashion can be harder to master as the choices we have can appear more limited. Forget about the baggy clothing and instead, look into more on trend outfits for your wardrobe.

Why You Should Try Eyebrow Microblading


If you are looking to better frame your face and enhance your eyes then you must take a look at eyebrow microblading and consider if it is right for you. It is known as a tried and tested technique to create a better natural shape of your features and one of the proven methods available for you to enhance the appearance of your eyebrows.

While Microblading is not the only option available for you to enhance the good looks of eyebrows, it is by far the most economical option. Regularly visiting the salon on a weekly basis to wax your eyebrows would cost a considerable amount of money compared to the one-off costs of microblading. Along with that, you will have to invest a lot of time to get the job done as well.

How To Become More Body Confident

Finding peace of mind over how we feel about your bodies can be hard. We are bombarded with images of beautiful women. Everywhere we look there are models advertising clothes, movie stars who always look perfect, singers who seem to have it all. And then we look at our bodies and compare ourselves.
