Piercing - Body Jewelry

Once a symbol of power and wealth, now a fashion trend.

Piercing is the practice of puncturing or cutting any part of the body, to make a hole through which jewelry can be put. The most common and most widespread form of piercings is pierced ears, which has a majority of women and earrings are a common accessory.

Body piercing is present for thousands of years. The Mummy 5000 years old, found 1991 on the Austrian glacier had pierced ears. Pierced nose is mentioned in the Bible as well as its symbolic meaning in terms of wealth, status and power. Piercing is widespread throughout the world and among different cultures - it was done by the Aztecs, Mayans, Indians, various African tribes ...

We talked with experts for tattoo and piercing, and this is what we found out. Ears, nose, eyebrows and lips piercing are the most popular today, and genital piercing is increasing its popularity.

What body part is the hardest and easiest to pierce?
The most complicated to do is female genital piercing, while the simplest are eyebrows, nose or lips. Ears can be complicated if it comes to piercing of cartilage. A person who is engaged in piercing should be familiar with anatomy, where to pierce and which needles to use. Conditions in which piercing is done must be sterile, and needles have to be used only once. We had the opportunity to observe live tongue piercing. Contrary to expectations, there was no blood, and the entire process was completed in less than 10 minutes.

Taking care of your piercing
Care is the same with most piercing, except for oral piercing. You should buy a piercing disinfection product. Before touching your piercing, you should wash your hands. The first few days the lymph will go from the wound which has to be cleaned daily. Put some disinfection product on the wound and spin your piercing 4-5 times so this product gets in the wound. Healed piercing must be cleaned (rinse and spin) in the shower so the dirt and sweat are removed from the hole.

There can be some complications with a piercing, but everything can be repaired. With tongue and genitals piercing usually there are no complications. Most problematic is the navel, which can often become infected (bacterial inflammation). In this case, you should not take out the jewelry because the infection could only get worse. You have to contact your doctor so that he can take care of this.

When your piercing is new you should always wear it because a hole can close if you don't wear it for couple of hours. Longer you have the piercing, it will take more time to remove the hole. For example, if someone is wearing a nose piercing for a long time, and he doesn't want to wear it anymore, even after three years a hole will still be there.

When will my piercing heal?
It depends on which part of the body the piercing is done, because everything heals differently. For example, tongue, eyebrows or nose will heal in four weeks, while the belly button will heal in three months, and internal or external cochlea in 3-6 months.

Allergies to metals
All the jewelry that we use in made of medical titanium, which do not cause any inflammation or reaction. There is also plastic jewelry that was tested and does not cause allergies.

If your skin has some irregularities, then choose a more consistent foundation. Keep in mind that the foundation, has to have high quality.

It is best to test a foundation shade in daylight. Apply a little foundation on your cheeks, and to see more shades simultaneously to see the difference.

Every girl needs to find the two perfect shades of foundation: light for the winter and darker for summer. You can find more tips about choosing your foundation in my previous article: How to choose the perfect foundation.

High quality foundation should not leave any marks and when you apply it, it should look completely natural. Make sure the skin is properly hydrated before putting on make-up.

What you should know about the foundation?
-Girls aged 15-25 years should not always wear makeup, because their skin produces enough collagen, and needs oxygen.

Fast Tricks For Fresh Face Look

Facial skin due to long working days and home duties, gradually loses its freshness. To bypass this problem, we bring you the quick tips that will save you in critical situations.

Tired eyes

If you're really tired, a little powder or a highlighter will do the trick! The light will reflect from the highlighter straight to your eyes. You will automatically look fresher. Apply powder or highlighter on the cheeks, towards the outer corner of the eye. Then apply powder under the arch of each eyebrow with soft movements.

Dry skin

Hydrating facial spray will give the skin a natural glow, and also will refresh it. If you don't have it, try a spray that contains vitamins, antioxidants and minerals.

Skin without natural glow

At home, try the mixture from a pumpkin and plum. This food contains salicylic acid that removes grease and dead cells. Heat 4 tablespoons of water and add the plums and pumpkins in that water. Cook for 30 minutes. Mash the mixture and apply after it cools. Keep it on the face for half an hour, then rinse with cold water.

Wrinkles on the forehead

In this case acupressure has the best effect. Press the upper inner corner of the eyebrows with your finger, and slowly move toward the outer corner of the eye. Hold finer for three seconds and do the same with the lower inner angle. Repeat these exercise 3 times on each eye.

Beauty Trend: Purple Rain

This spring violet will bloom on the eyelids. Purple is no longer a symbol of jealousy, but of femininity and seduction. Be brave!

Purple eyeshadow fit perfectly for green eyes, but also to everyone else if they find the right shade. To avoid 'bruises look' make sure you have extremely pigmented shade of excellent fastness.

In the Etro spring collection beautiful purple 'smokey' was carried in the spirit of 70ties. Purple eye shadow was applied all around the eye, and 'nude' lips balanced a strong impression, and the overall effect was airy and very chic.

In Victoria Beckham collection was seen wonderful pastel purple, not subtly applied, but again lips were subtle. Beautiful lighter 'smokey' was worn by Jason Wu, perfectly blended and again combined with the nude lips. Purple eyes were particularly pronounced because the models had tied hair - focus was only on the eyes.

From catwalks purple eye shadow was extended to the red carpet. Katy Perry look great with bright purple eye shadow on the upper eyelid covered with glitter, which is combined with green eye shadow.

Kelly Osbourne matched a softer violet eyeshadow with her dress. Rihanna played with shades that highlight her green eyes - purple is combined with soft pink. Of course, 'look' was spiced up with false eyelashes.

For a flawless look reach for the purple matte eye shadow, and combine it with a peachy blush and nude lips. In this way, it is impossible to go wrong in any way or overdo it. Purple and peach are really in love as we can see on the catwalk.

Bolder will wear purple lips as seen at the Haute Couture shows, and certainly on nails. However, what is certain, purple 'beauty' details are unavoidable this season.

Vaseline As a Beauty Product

Vaseline 100% Pure Petroleum Jelly is a simple paraffin combination for multiple purposes, and is particularly useful in the service of beauty. Inexpensive and versatile, so it should be in every cosmetic bag.

We bring you 10 ways that you can use it in your favor, with a little experimenting and playing with the ingredients.

1. Nourishing care for dry skin

Whether you have sensitive lips, elbows, or dry skin on arms and legs, Vaseline can be your "joker" in all situations. For dry and cracked skin on your feet, apply a generous amount of Vaseline, wear plain cotton socks and leave it to act overnight. The same trick can be used for the skin on the hands and leaves, but in this case, shorten the time to about fifteen minutes.

2. Eyelashes and eyebrows care

Women who have tried this method using Vaseline swear in its performance. Apply a little Vaseline every night before bed or on the lashes before applying mascara. Eventually, your eyelashes will be thicker and longer, and in another case your lashes will look better. You will simply tame your playful eyebrows with a little Vaseline.

3. Natural Scrub

If you mix Vaseline 100% Pure Petroleum Jelly with plain sea salt you will get an excellent, nurturing natural exfoliation, which will also remove dead skin cells and nourish the skin.

4. Substitute for shaving foam

Apply a thin layer of Vaseline to the place you plan to shave and the skin after shaving will remain soft and fresh.

5. Eyeshadow fixator

To make your eyeshadow last loner, before make-up apply a small amount of Vaseline on your eyelids, but be very cautious and careful not to overdo it because you won't be able to apply eyeshadow even.

6. Hair cream

Vaseline doesn't do wonders only for your skin, but also for your hair. Spread a small amount of Vaseline on your fingers and use like the styling products you use normally. Soon you'll start noticing that your hair is healthier.

7. Remove hair dye stains

If you rub Vaseline on the hairline, behind the ear and neck, you'll avoid stains that remain on the skin after hair dying, which is quite difficult to remove.

8. Mix your own make-up

Don't throw your lipstick (unless it is not expired), but mix it with a small amount of Vaseline 100% Pure Petroleum Jelly (depending on the box where you think to keep your home-made product) and in 10 minutes you will receive your own nourishing lip balm. The same way you can create a creamy blush.

9. A beautiful manicure

Vaseline is one of the best products for cuticle care. Rub a small amount om the nail and after a few minutes you can easily push the cuticles.

10. Long lasting fragrance

Apply a small amount of Vaseline to the area where applying perfume, and you'll smell loner than usual.

Help The Dry Skin On Your Face

If you feel the tension of the skin, especially after washing your face or entry into a room with a high temperature, you have a problem with dry skin.

There are several reasons why you have this problem. It may be a hereditary factor, due to taking certain medications, lack of vitamins, a diet or due to weather factors, too, if you were exposed to high temperatures.Daily skin care is very important. Dermatologists recommend that you don't wash your face with soap and water because in this way you are removing the protective layer of skin.

When applying creams or other preparations to face you need to do it gently and wait for it to be absorbed. In the winter, you should but protection cream on the skin before you go out.

We bring you a recipe for the morning scrub that you can make at home.

Stir these ingredients:

- one egg yolk,
- one small spoon of orange juice and a few drops of lime juice,
- one small spoon of olive oil,
- a few drops of rose water.

Apply the mixture on your skin every morning 15 minute before showering and then rinse and then put a moisturizer.

Tips For Beautiful Hands And Nails

Hands care should be a part of your daily routine. Protect them with cream and gloves, so that your manicure would shine. See what are the basic guidelines for proper hand care.

Regular care is most important for beautiful hands. In winter, you do not really need expensive creams, but it is necessary to acquire the routine of putting some cream on your hands after washing. Dry skin will quickly soften if you put some cream in the evening, before bed. Furthermore, put a small cream package in your bag so you'll always have it with you. When you put a mask on your face, apply it on hands to. Tap it in the skin and put nylon gloves.

Don't wash your hands with strong soap to often, especially in winter. When washing dishes and doing housework, wear gloves because detergents, except that dries the skin, it removes the protective layer from nails, and their surface becomes sensitive to fungi and bacteria.

While long nails make hands more feminine, short rounded nails will look cleaner on your hands. Shorten the length of the nails to three or four millimeters, and then maintain that length. Groomed nails include the regular removal of nail polish and cuticle care.

Draw the attention to your hands with modern nail polish. The latest collection this season includes purple, pink and red shades, though, regardless of trends, apply nail polish in accordance with wardrobe and makeup. The lacquer is applied in two thin layers. Before painting apply a clear varnish or lacquer base, and then put an ordinary nail lacquer. That way nail polish will last loner on your nails. You need to apply nail polish from the bottom to the top of the nail. The thin line along the root of the nail should remain free because the nails will then be able to breathe.

Lemon's juice suits nails Lemon juice whitens your nails. It acts as a peeling for the skin at the bottom of the nail. Hold your nails two minutes in lemon juice. For dry skin on the fingers use oil bath. Olive, sunflower or sesame oil should be hot (not too hot), and then soak your fingers or entire hands for 10 minutes.

Homemade Microdermabrasion Scrub

Try a cheap and sweet substitute for expensive microdermabrasion treatments in beauty salons.

Microdermabrasion is a technique that stimulates skin renewal by removing dead cells from the skin surface. This way the creation of new, young skin cells and its renewal and rejuvenation is stimulated. Beauty salons promise to solve wrinkles, acne scars, enlarged pores, freckles, dry skin, excessive accumulation of dead cells, stretch marks, etc. with microdermabrasion. Why give so much money to beauty salons when you can get a very similar effect at home? I will describe to you my sweet "treatment" that I love doing.

You will need:
- Vaseline
- granulated sugar
- honey
- small plate
- something to mix with, for example, a toothpick, or your fingers

Take a large spoon and grab some honey, then put it on the plate.

Grab Vaseline with your fingers and mix with honey.

Then add a small spoon of sugar and stir it well.

You'll notice that the mixture is blurrier than in the beginning.

What I do next is toning the face and then take a little of this mixture and gently rub in a circular motion on my face. This is actually peeling due to sugar crystals. If you want stronger scrub, use a coarse sugar. Honey is here to feed your skin, especially new cells, which will come out to the surface after peeling. Vaseline moisturizes the skin and keeps the mixture homogeneous and compact. Except for the facial skin, you can use this as a peeling for lips. Circular movements are also a facial massage which stimulates circulation, and thus renews the skin. Furthermore, when I wash my face, I do this with circling movements. The skin will be soft and gentle.

You can do this every two weeks, or as it suits you. I do this every ten days, and sometimes every week. When you wash it, always dry the face by gentle tapping with a towel because the skin is sensitive. Then apply a day cream and Vaseline on the lips (or a lip balm).

And that's it:)

What do you think? Will you try it?
