10 Wrinkle Erasing Night-Time Skin Care Tips You Need To Know About!

Hello Beauties:

I’ve started my second week of school and I am starting to get on a more normal schedule…SOMEWHAT. I really miss it when I don’t blog and I also don’t want to let too much time pass without blogging so today I am doing a reblog from Hollywood Life and written by — Olivia Elgart. I think we all can benefit from a good night-time skin care routine. Today I am sharing one that Demi Lovato swears by:

demi-lovato-beauty-get-look-leadDemi Lovato has always had impeccable skin so what’s better than a list of skin care tips from Demi’s beautician? Demi’s esthetician, Renee Rouleau, posted a list of 10 night-time skin care tips on her blog and we cannot wait to try out the list ASAP.

Demi Lovato, 22, always has a fresh flawless face and we are so envious of her perfect skin! Now, thanks to her esthetician, Renee Rouleau, we have an inside look into 10 nighttime skin care tips straight from her blog! Renee is not only an esthetician to the stars, she also makes fabulous skin care products. Aside from Demi, Sofia Vegara 42, is also a big fan of her products!

0x600Ok so here are Renee Rouleau’s 10 expert tips on nighttime rituals to get you waking up looking fresh & rested:

1. Cleanse your skin nightly. After all of the germs from your day’s activities have been spread on you, make sure to wash your face to prevent acne & blemishes from forming!

2. Wash your skin earlier in the evening. Honestly, we are all guilty of this. When you come home from a long night out or a long day at work, all you want to do is throw on your pajamas and hop right in bed. It takes 2 minutes to wash your face — just do it!

3. Always use moisturizer at night. It’s really important to use a moisturizer (one suited for your skin type) because at night when your skin is at rest, the skin’s permeability is at its highest therefore allowing the action ingredients of a moisturizer to absorb deeper within the skin.

4. Use Products with performance ingredients. During the day your skin requires environmental-protecting ingredients but at night when your skin is regenerating, look for repair, exfoliating and anti-inflammatory ingredients.

5. Change your pillowcases frequently. Bacteria and oil may get reintroduced into the skin when you sleep so it’s always suggested for acne-prone skin to have a fresh, clean pillowcase to sleep on.

6. Use baby wash cloths instead of regular wash cloths. Even if your skin is not sensitive, it’s always a good idea to treat it gently. Regular wash cloths can be too aggressive so instead opt for gentler baby wash cloths.

7. Avoid applying eye cream too close. It’s important to avoid applying eye cream too close to the lash line as the product will actually end up in your eyes, picked up by your eyelashes.

8. Sleep with your head elevated. Keep your head elevated by sleeping on two pillows at night to reduce under eye puffiness. This helps to reduce fluid retention in the eye area so you’re less puffy in the morning.

9. Avoid using greasy hand creams. If you sleep on your side with your hands on your face, the cream may be getting into the skin and clogging the pores. If you find that this may be happening to you, sleep with cotton gloves.

10. Get your beauty sleep. Sleep can reduce dark circles because a lack of sleep compromises your body’s circulatory system and you get stagnant blood in the vessels under the eyes because it hasn’t properly drained. Lack of sleep also causes the skin to look pale and tired because the circulation has been impaired.

Will you try any of these expert beauty tricks tonight before you go to bed!

News Alert: 4 Shorts Trends You Need To Have In Your Closet This Summer

Hi Lovelies,

Today is What-to-Wear Wednesday and you would NOT believe the day I’ve had! Can I just say my brain is fried and I am struggling to write this piece but I am determined to keep to my blogging schedule. Now you may have noticed that the site looks a little different. Well that’s what fried my brain. I had to surf the web for the perfect picture of my hometown Chicago’s skyline, then go to flamingtext  to make my font then over to picmonkey to layer my new header and try to make it fit into the new space (theme) perfectly. I still may tweak it because I am OCD and all of the other letters in the alphabet, but I am happy with the theme that I chose and my inspiration to change it came from Style Domination, so thank you for having such an eye-catching site! ♥ Maybe we can exchange plug-in codes? Okay so enough of my ramblings, let me get to what matters most to all my fashionistas: Fashion!

I really wish that I had legs like Beyoncé because I would probably wear shorts everyday of the summer, but since I don’t and I know that I am not alone (I hope I’m not the only one), I came up with 4 of my top hits at any length for you.

THE DENIM SHORTS

Dorcastar-short-de-jeans-verano-2015Let’s face it, denim shorts are the bomb.com. Whether they are torn, ripped, you created them out of a pair of old jeans, or you bought them right off the racks, you cannot go wrong with a great pair of denim shorts. Denim doesn’t mean just blue though so you can wear them in any color. Like a great pair of white denims can carry you from daytime to a night out with  just a few additions: add a blazer, some heels or wedges, and nice chunky accessories and you are ready to go…two snaps!!

 

THE LACE SHORTS

Lace is one of the unexpected trends that happened in the fashion industry and I am so glad that it happened because it is one of my favorite looks in a pair of shorts. Now wearing the lace short can be kind of tricky so here are a few guidelines so you can avoid a fashion fauxpaux.

Do

  • be sure to pair your lace shorts with an elegant lightweight top so that it isn’t too heavy.
  • pair your lace with a denim shirt.
  • wear with gladiators or sandals that come up to at least the ankle.
  • wear your short monochromatic and use a pop of color in your purse or shoes.

Don’t

  • wear everything lace. That would be overkill.
  • wear with a blazer that is longer than the shorts.

THE HIGH WAISTED SHORTS

High-waisted everything is back in style, even bikinis. No longer are high-waisted consider the nerd next door shorts, they are coming to us right off the runway. So pull out your mom’s old jeans and start cutting off your high-waisted shorts. The sky’s the limit with this trend. You can pair them with a graphic muscle tee, a bustier, a blazer and tank, a crop top…the options are endless. Although if you are short-waisted like me, you want to wear them with a fitted top so you can see your waistline better and not look like their are shorts and then your boobs.

THE BERMUDA SHORTS

Bermuda-Shorts

The perfect line up for the women that don’t want to show too much leg while still wanting to wear shorts. The good thing about this comeback style is that you could get away with wearing them to the office if you have a cool boss that is. The cutest most flattering pairs, have a slim-cut design that tapers down your leg. Bermudas also look hot paired with girly tops like a peplum and high heels.
