Hot or cold?
Hot water may feel like its cleaning your skin more thoroughly, but stick to lukewarm water when washing your face. Water that is too hot can alter the skins natural oils and leave your complexion overly dry. Lukewarm water is equally effective, but much more gentle on the skin.
Healthy hair nutrients
Spinach can be a power player for your entire body, but did you know that it can help keep your hair follicles healthy? This leafy green can help produce scalp oils and provide your locks with vitamins and minerals including iron, beta carotene, folate and vitamin C.
Whats your tone?
Pairing the right color palettes with your skin tone can enhance your features and help you look your absolute best. Here are the best colors to match with your skin tone:
Cool skin tone (red, pink or bluish undertones) – Rich colors including black, navy, red, hot pink, emerald-green, royal blue or dark purple are the best shades for this skin tone.
Warm skin tone (yellow, gold or orange undertones) – You will look great in sage green, soft peach, gold, muted browns and bronze.
Neutral skin tone (mixture of cool and warm tones) – All colors work, so mix and match to find your best look.
Low on lashes?
Eyelash growth has four stages: growing, resting, shedding and regrowing, but the process tends to slow with age, and some follicles can stop growing altogether. Other than age, here are some major factors that can limit eyelash growth:
- Rubbing eyelashes too hard or scrubbing when taking off eye makeup
- Medical conditions
- Some medications and treatments
Talk to your dermatologist if you’ve noticed that your eyelashes are thinning over time so they can help you find the root of the problem.
Some fingernails have a dark band on the tips, which is a condition known as Terry’s nails. If you notice it on your nails, its best to get it checked out. Although Terry’s nails can be a result of aging, it can also be a sign of a serious medical condition, such as liver disease, congestive heart failure or diabetes.
