Ladies who want to go that extra step toward having great skin are opting to use overnight face masks. The right mask can improve a person's skin, by treating issues including acne, dark spots, redness, or dryness while a person sleeps. Nighttime is when the skin is most receptive to the active ingredients in the masks. But, do a little research to find the best product for you and your skin type. 



When Choosing an Overnight Face Mask Look At the Ingredients 

When faced with a multitude of overnight face masks, look at the ingredient lists. The most expensive product is not always the best. Renee Rouleau has more of the good ingredients and fewer of the bad ones. This is why they have somewhat of a cult following. This skincare company only sells online, so it may not make the mass-produced best product lists. But, its celebrity and other loyal users know the good results it brings. 

That said, the better overnight face masks avoid some chemicals and use other better ones. The ingredients to avoid include: 

1. Mineral oil and petrolatum, which may clog pores 
2. Bad alcohols, such as SD alcohol 40 and denatured alcohol, which will dry skin 
3. Synthetic dyes, fragrances, plastic exfoliating beads, and phthalates, which are known skin irritants 
4. Sodium or ammonium laureth or lauryl sulfates and isopropyl myristate or isopropyl palmitate, which can irritate the skin or cause blackheads
Ingredients to look for in good products include:
1. Formulas that are lightweight and do not clog pores
2. High concentrations of herbal and plant-based effective and active ingredients that are cold-pressed
3. Extracts and essential oils that act as carriers and enhance the absorption and penetration of the skincare product in a safe way.
4. simple packaging and cruelty-free ingredients with no history of animal testing

Check Online For Best Product Lists

Why bother using an overnight face mask? Using a good-quality overnight face mask can have definite skin benefits. Face masks are like enhanced night creams with additional effective ingredients. Since you apply them at bedtime, they have the night to work while you are asleep. Checking best-product lists that appear on rating sites can help narrow down the choices. Also, check out new products that are getting good reviews. Seven of the best overnight face masks include:

1. Laneige Water Sleeping Mask is good for hydrating and soothing the dry and dull skin. $25.00

In today's day and age, more and more people are becoming aware of the fashion industry's twisted and cruel reality. It's tough to know where fabrics and materials come from, and when you do, it's even harder to determine whether these materials are ethically obtained or not. 

Is there truly a way to shop sustainable, Eco-Friendly luxury wool? And if so, what is the best type of fabric to buy? Is there a yarn that can easily replace the soft and warm feeling cashmere offers? The short answer is yes.
.

Eco-friendly and ethical practices

I spent my last year of college researching the environmental and humanitarian impacts of fast fashion. I became obsessed with the best ways to determine whether a product is eco-friendly, ethically produced, and with the overall idea of living more sustainably. 

It may come as a surprise, but Alpaca wool is one of the most ethical products available on the luxury market. This eco-friendly and cruelty-free yarn, worn by Peruvians for centuries, leads to the rise of the thriving textile industry. It is now known worldwide as a more luxurious, warmer, and lighter alternative to Cashmere.
 
How is Alpaca wool obtained?

Alpacas, South American camellias, can move relatively freely in large enclosures in the Peruvian and Bolivian Andes. They are not killed so that the farmers receive their wool; they are carefully shorn to be released into the wild a few hours later. 

Alpaca wool does not need strong chemicals to be cleaned, which makes it an environmentally friendly fiber. It is also important to mention that alpacas are naturally available in 24 different colors, from all-black to white and an abundance of gray and brown tones. This variety of colors makes it easier for manufacturers to limit the process of dying.


CashmereVS Alpaca wool

Cashmere became popular in the 1980s, and for many years it was considered one of the most luxurious wools on the market. Due to its strong but very soft and lightweight consistency, it quickly became popular amongst female and male luxury fashion enthusiasts alike and has been used by designers for decades. 

Its high popularity has led to some animal welfare, and environmental problems as the primary producers in China and Mongolia are forced to overgraze in the face of growing demand. Apart from the threat to the animals, the constant counterfeiting of cashmere products is also a cause for concern. 

Alpaca wool is a fantastic alternative to Cashmere, and some may even think it is the better choice for various reasons. One is that it is shinier than Cashmere, and pilling is not a real issue with Alpaca. 
Alpaca wool is hypoallergenic as it contains no lanolin, the perfect solution for those who are sensitive to wool.

 
Supporting the indigenous communities 

Alpacas live freely in the Peruvian Andes, peacefully co-existing with thousands of indigenous communities. These families rely on breading as their primary source of income. 

Every year these communities come together to breed, shear and then turn the high-value fiber into luxurious yarn. 

The traditional way of life continues to this day, with many family farms supported by the Fair Trade movement.

By choosing Products from a Peruvian Alpaca Fashion line, you actively contribute to these small communities' prosperity and the continuation of their weaving traditions.

 


 
We put our hair through a lot. In the shower, we often use harsh shampoos and conditioners and then reach for a hairdryer and other heat tools to dry and style our hair. This is all not even touching on the other potentially drying or harmful products many use on a daily basis, including gels, pomades, and more. 

Thankfully, there are a few simple steps that you can take to start eliminating this unnecessary stress on your hair. To begin, take a close look at the products you reach for in the shower. 

Read your labels

You may think that your current shampoo or conditioner is good enough and gets the job done, but if you are trying to improve the health of your hair it could be helpful to actually take a look at those ingredient labels. 

Here are a few specific ingredients that those who care about their hair health should avoid: 

  • Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS)
  • Parabens
  • Triclosan
  • Propylene glycol 
  • Diethanolamine (DEA)
  • Mineral oil

Why are these ingredients bad? The answer to this question depends on the specific ingredient. For some of them, such as triclosan, DEA, mineral oil, and parabens, there are concerns surrounding potential health risks. For others, including SLS and propylene glycol, the concern centers more around the tendency for these ingredients to irritate the scalp and dry out your hair. 

Simply reading the ingredient labels on products you consistently use, like shampoo and conditioner, allows you to identify these harmful ingredients and subsequently remove products that contain them from your hair care routine. If you do end up discontinuing the use of your shampoo and conditioner, there are several great alternative options available. Solidu shampoo and conditioner bars are great environmentally friendly options that are also free from the above mentioned harmful ingredients. They have several formulations to target different hair care needs, such as this rosemary and mint shampoo bar for oily hair. 

Avoid heat styling

Yes, it is common advice to stop constantly using heat styling tools on your hair. But it is not without good reason. Hairdryers, straighteners, and curling irons are staples in many of our beauty routines, but that doesn’t change the fact that they can dry out your hair, contribute to split ends, and ruin your natural curl pattern. 

While these tools are certainly convenient and can help speed up the process of getting ready for the day, they do more harm than good. If it feels like asking too much to completely quit using your favorite heat styling tools, then a solid step would be to simply reduce the number of times per week that you use them. For example, if you typically blow dry your hair every morning and then pick up a curling iron to complete your look, maybe you could skip the curling iron three out of the seven days per week. While this doesn’t completely eliminate the potential for heat damage, it does reduce it. 

Work with your natural hair

Whether you naturally have straight hair, waves, curls, coils, or fall somewhere in between, everyone can benefit from embracing styles that lend themselves to their natural hair pattern. 

Investing in quality leave-in products to comb or scrunch through your hair after you shower can help keep the temptation for reaching for heat styling tools at bay. Gels, pomades, and leave-in conditioners can all help tame and style your hair while avoiding the harsh effects of heat. 

However, while you are researching which products you should use for this purpose be sure to keep an eye on the ingredient list. Just like shampoos and conditioners, other hair products can also contain the aforementioned harmful ingredients. Especially when checking out holding products like gel or pomade, be sure to avoid any harsh alcohols that could dehydrate your hair and leave it dry and brittle. 

To sum it all up

Remembering to read ingredient labels, avoid heat styling tools, and reach for various leave-in products are each small steps that you can take to improve the condition of your hair. Hopefully, these ideas can give you a starting point for moving toward your hair goals, and inspire you to look into even more options to optimize your hair’s health! 

The day before yesterday my best friend got married, and as I was watched her take her voes, looking absolutely breathtaking in her lace, off shoulder wedding dress in front of all her friends and family I suddenly realized it. Every hour spent browsing through dozens of catalogs, every unfortunate step back, all the anger, stress, and frustration, everything came down to this moment. It felt like I was in an episode of Friends and a highlights reel of our friendship played again and again in a loop in my brain. It was so beautiful, exactly as she imagined her wedding would be. At that moment, I felt an overwhelming sense of joy, peace, and love. I was there thinking about everything. In fact, we had absolutely no idea how to plan a wedding. This is exactly the reason I am writing these lines today, let's all take a moment to discuss some of the most difficult choices a bride has to make, the ones we didn't consider as important. 

"I would rather share one lifetime with you than face all the ages of this world alone." - Toklkien 

It may not seem like the most difficult decision when you decide to start planning your dream day but figuring out how to choose wedding invitations that accurately represent your sense of style and aesthetic is super important. Paper types, font, theme, sizing, inserts, and cost are only a few things you need to take into consideration. What's the one thing we learned the hard way? Different invite shapes and sizes qual different postal fees so be sure to consider your budget when deciding which invitation to send.

But is there a way to find the perfect wedding invitation to match your sense of style?

My and my best friend are polar opposites. I consider myself a laid back, a super casual person that loves all things minimal - neutral tones, clean lines - and plain. She, on the other hand, adores glitter, vibrant color combinations, and cute floral dresses. You will never find her wearing sneakers, not when pumps are available on the market at least. 


Bold, bright, and vibrant. Thankfully there are many sources available on how to pick the perfect combination. Having a cohesive color scheme  - or better yet, a theme- from your engagement party invites to your bridesmaid's dresses and makeup is very important.  Bright vintage blooms with gold and calligraphy and a dark background add the perfect doses of femininity and glamour especially if you are planning a spring - summer wedding.

This is how to choose the perfect wedding invitation according to your style

Modern minimalism. My personal favorite style features clean, black, white and maybe gold lettering Horizontal lines are the perfect way to draw the reader's eye to the most important details with not much distraction.


A taste of luxury. Handwritten calligraphy, lace motifs in neutral colors like blush and light gray combined with high-end materials are some of the top choices for your chic, fairy tale style wedding day.


Vitamin sea. For those who dream of having a beach wedding, this is the perfect way to give your guests the feeling of the warm, summer breeze. Seashells, palm trees, and beautiful illustrations of the ocean are only a few great ideas you might want to consider.

During 2000's, press-on nails were lacking variety, mostly limited to the usual square French manicures with tiny bits of glitter or floral designs — No wonder why most of us avoided them. Fast forward to 2020 this certainly isn't the case anymore. The variety has expanded to include coffin, stiletto, and almond styles in a great selection of colors with a glossy or matte finish, from rainbow to crystal-covered and more. Have you been thinking of getting custom fit, reusable nail sets to achieve the perfect luxury look without going back to the salon for touch-ups and fills? This one might be for you.

Alisha A. Robertson, the owner and founder of SpaLisha loves nail art so much that she makes her own." I loved getting long nails with beautiful designs, but it took time and I would spend so much money on my nails every two weeks. I wanted to try and do it on my own. That’s where it all started. I love to create magic doing nails.", she explained."The best part is seeing the finished product and to see my clients face as they stare at their beautiful nails. I’ve always had a passion for all things beauty. I enjoy creating art."

How to stay on top of all the new nail trends

Alisha uses gold foil, crystals  and other materials to create her luxury instant manicures for Maryland-based brand SpaLisha. The styles come in short, medium, or long lengths and are available in four different shapes, coffin, square, almond and stiletto. Each set is available in many shape variations, lengths, and finishes. Many of her designs include AB or clear crystals, ideal for everyone who loves a little drama. The line offers beautiful ombre, chrome, and animal print, exactly what you need to look chic and make a statement.

There is always the option to craft the press on nail set of your dreams. The possibilities are endless when it comes to color combinations, lengths, and styles. You only need to add some extra crystals and ascents? Go for it!. Whether you are interested in adding sparkle for a special occasion or want to look your best every day with minimum effort there is definitely something for you. 


Get Up And Get Going 

While it is always easy to keep hitting the snooze button in the morning, doing so is not the best thing for your overall sleep patterns. Try to break yourself of this bad habit, and instead set the alarm for the actual time you need to be awake. If the snooze button remains too tempting to abandon completely, try to use it just once per day. The snooze button is really causing you to loose sleep, not gain it, because it chops up restful slumber in such a way that you do not really benefit from the few extra minutes you think you are getting. 

Stop The Snacking 

Food and drink and when they are ingested will have a lot to do with how well you sleep. See if you can stop eating at least 2-3 hours prior to retiring for the night so that your entire body is prepared for relaxation. If you drink any alcohol, try to do so early in the evening so that the body can process it before you fall asleep. Caffeine should be taken only in the morning, and you should focus on other types of drinks for the rest of the day. Caffeine lingers in the body much longer than you realize, and it can harm your sleep quality to a real degree. 

Tips on getting a good night sleep

Napping News 

While you might think that a nap will interfere with your ability to sleep at night, short ones of up to 30 minutes can actually help the process. Even something as short as 10 minutes of napping can boost alertness during the day, which can lead to better, more restful sleep at night. 

Comfortable Surroundings 

If you have a bedroom that is serene and comfortable, sleep will come easier. Keeping the surroundings cool, quiet, and dark is the best way to optimize your sleep experience. Be certain to have a mattress that is large enough for full range of movement, firm enough to provide necessary support and comfortable enough to make you want to stay in it for a complete night of rest. Read these Puffy Mattress reviews and find the perfect mattress for you.

Working Out For Better Sleep

Regular exercise is a great way to prepare the body for sleep, and this can even take the form of a simple, brisk walk. Try to finish working out no less than two hours prior to bedtime so that the body is cooled down and ready for slumber.
As easy as it sounds to wear what truly makes us happy there are plenty of factors that can influence someone's opinion. With the rise of social media and the constant visual stimulations, they offer we all find ourselves lost and confused about what we actually like -or need-. How much time do we spend trying to convince ourselves that a particular piece of clothing fits better than it looks or that we weren't actually influenced by someone else to like something we truly don't? No one can deny it, there is an overall mainstream idea of how a person should dress ( and look ) judging by their age, marital status, hobbies, and field of work. Maybe 2020 is the perfect time for us to focus on how fashion makes us feel rather than blindly following trends and "musts".

The art of shopping less

As we change and grow we all have a different perspective on what fashion is and what it represents. All the things we once thought we needed may now make us cringe or be considered "out" of fashion. There are some basic but key questions to ask ourselves before hitting the order button. Will this specific item fill a gap in our closet? Will we get much use out of it? Does the brand follow ethical techniques to create this piece of clothing we are about to wear? No matter your personal style these questions should always be a priority.

Moreover avoiding impulse buys at all costs will have a positive impact on our finances and closet space. How many times have you found yourself looking at clothes on the hunger - with tags still on- only to second guess your prior decisions? Having high-quality basics that can be worn countless times for years and years does not automatically mean designer items. Not everyone has the means or the will to spend that much money on one style, nonetheless adding necessary-only fashion to our wardrobe will inevitably help us create an admirable capsule collection, very beneficial in the long run no matter the price point.

Comfy casual styles with statement colors

Take this pair of  Dockers white platform sneakers for example that I wear pretty much every week religiously since last November even though I have quite a few alternatives. Why? Because they make me feel great. You have seen me styling more than a few looks around them on my blog and Instagram, they are simple and easy to wear with each and every outfit.

As soon as I unboxed my Buffalo CHAI sneakers on the stories I received so many mixed reactions. People loved how comfy and statements they were while others hated the chunky look they had. I feel so good when I wear them and I find myself reaching for them many times a month. That's what it really means to buy something that makes your heart happy as soon as you put it on as opposed to ordering something because someone else's opinion - and influence - managed to change your perception.  that's how I feel fashion should be. A way to make us happy and more confident.
 

So why my style has changed so drastically over the last 5 years?

If you are an avid reader - and follower- of meets style and @konna.antoniadou you probably already know what I am referring to. For years I have been trying to convince myself that the clothes I was wearing were a reflection of my personality, false. Even though I really loved my midi dresses and white boho tops reality was my personal taste was heavily influenced by the society's opinion of what a 20-year-old should look and act like. I never actually felt comfortable squeezed into my tight dresses and over the knee boots but honestly, I didn't know any other way to be. I had a certain idea of how I should look all day every day. Even now, freshly turned 26, I get comments here and there from people who claim that I should be dressing more "age appropriately", meaning not athletic I suppose. Do we need to pay attention to what others have to say about our appearance and life choices? NO. That's why you should wear fashion that makes you happy.

Good quality sleep is as crucial for your health as a well-balanced and nutritious meal. It is while we rest (sleep) that body tissues and cells get to repair and rejuvenate in readiness for the next day’s events. Good quality sleep also translates to improved concentration, better moods, and memory. According to health/sleep experts, the average person should get at least 7 hours of good quality sleep every day. Whether you are always working at night, shifts, or during the day, it would be advisable to get as much sleep as possible. Have you however been struggling to fall or stay asleep? 

Outlined below are a few tips to help you beat sleeplessness when you need it. 



When You Wake Up (In The Morning)

Make it a habit of waking up at precisely the same time (say 7:00 AM) every day (holidays and weekends included). Doing so enables the body to maintain a steady circadian rhythm, making it easier to fall asleep later on at night. Do not extend your sleep time by more than 2 hours to avoid disrupting your internal clock. On waking up, splash some water on your face, then draw the blinds and curtains to let sunlight and fresh air in. This should improve your wakefulness. 

Later In The Day

Exercise for at least 30 minutes every day. Exercising regularly helps improve blood as well as keep your health in check. You might, however, want to avoid strenuous exercise (workouts) a few hours to your bedtime. You are better off exercising in the morning and just before midday to avoid disrupting your sleep pattern.

Try to avoid napping during the day as much as possible, and especially if you have trouble falling asleep at night. A 20-minute nap is, however, recommended if feeling overly tired and wish to rejuvenate.  Sleep experts also advise against working from your bedroom or using your tablets, phone, or computer in the bedroom.  Any beverages and drinks loaded with stimulants, such as tea, coffee, and alcohol should be avoided 4 to 5 hours to bedtime. The same applies to cigarette smoking.

How comfortable is your bed? A new mattress could well be overdue, take a look at Costco mattresses to find the perfect one for you.


At Night

1. Take a hot/warm bath or shower just before retiring to bed.

 2. Create/establish a sleep routine to help prepare the body for the night. Reading a book, meditation, drinking warm milk, or even decaffeinated tea almost always does the trick.

 3. Avoid digital light as much as you can. If possible, turn your phone to dark mode to filter out any blue light. The blue light emitted by these devices is known to cause sleeplessness, hence should be avoided several hours towards bedtime.

 4. Do not take any alcohol if possible. While alcohol might help you drift to sleep quickly, it will only cause you to wake up repeatedly to go to the bathroom.

5. Don’t go to bed hungry; have a light meal instead before going to bed.

6. Ensure the bedroom is as dark and quiet as possible. Set the bedroom temperature at around 18 degrees Celsius to help create the perfect environment for sleep.

7. Turn the alarm clock to face away from you. The last thing you want is to stare at the clock as you try to sleep.


The Spring Summer 2020 runways were filled with incredibly wearable fashion that can stay and be re-worn over and over again for years to come. The biggest keywords of 2020 are sustainability, versatility, and wearability rather than showcasing strictly artistic collections. More and more consumers are interested in practical fashion pieces that can be saved in their capsule wardrobe for future uses, the designers definitely listened. In comparison to previous years, the word "impractical" wasn't how the new collections were described.

Bermuda shorts, Leather patterns, clean lines relaxed tailored suits, and bras were only a few of the main trends presented in the shows. The lines between the seasons are getting blurrier than ever. While you were able to admire the beautiful swimwear, party dresses and coats were also presented. Many spring summer 2020 collections can be worn 12 months a year which furthermore proves the consumer's decision to avoid "one season" items. Let's not forget the great efforts of Victoria Beckham, Ancuta Sarca, Mariah Esa, and Duran Lantink to create eco-conscious fashion shows.


“I was 7 the day I cut a skirt for my mum out of a linen curtain. Here is the collection L’année 97,” is how Simon Porte Jacquemus sums up his breathtaking S/S 20 collection, a celebration of colors and clean lines, hosted amongst a field of lavender flowers in the South of France and quickly went viral. No Jacquemus show would have been completed without a handbag moment. Many new bag silhouettes were presented with cross bodies, belt bags, and a different version of " Le Chiquito" mini bags amongst others. 2020 is a celebration of sustainability. Jacquemus, after 10 years of working with the same fabric manufacturer, decided to make some drastic changes. “They didn’t have a sustainable fabric that we wanted. Now, they do — because of the size of the order, I can make,” Vogue wrote back in January.


Stella Macartney presented the most ethical collection ever created by the brand. Loose blazers and a journey back to the '70s, lace dresses, and military looks took over the runway of the Opera Garnier. "The world is crying out for change and it is our responsibility to act now. The younger generation is standing up and telling us that our house is on fire and that we need to respond like we are in a crisis because in fact, it is a crisis" was the welcome note on the seat of every attendee.
