Have A Spa Day At Home With These 3 Self-Care Devices


Let's face it hair removal is undoubtedly the most time-consuming, overly expensive, and frustrating part of our self-care routine. And if you also include it in the list of your other pumper requirements such as face cleansing for your utterly frustrating acne issues, you will definitely understand my urge to find some at-home self-care solutions. You see, I am a busy gal, and that can only mean that you can always find me searching for the new, best thing to save me time, money, and energy.

Even if I was still an avid beauty salon goer, due to them being shut down for almost an entire year now, I would have no choice but to turn to an at-home hair removal method, an all-inclusive deep skin cleansing, and maybe a few sessions of microdermabrasion for pearly smooth skin. Luckily, I have already dedicated quite a lot of time to conduct extensive research on how to have an ultimate spa day at home on a tight budget. I am about to drop all the secrets, so take notes.

IPL LASER HAIR REMOVAL


For those of you who are new to the DIY hair removal at-home method, you will be pleased to know that there is actually a fairly affordable gadget that promises to reduce your hair growth and deliver super smooth skin in no time. IPL laser hair removal devices are about to be your next painless method to a hair-free life—thank me later.

The laser delivers precisely controlled pulses of energy that quickly gets absorbed into the melanin or pigment in the hair and diminishes it over time. You can thank the scattered wavelengths of light that target your hair follicles, destroying them from the root. Intense Pulsed Light technology is perfectly safe to use if you follow the instructions (eg, avoid tanning beds, and direct exposure to the sun right after your sessions). Ready to turn your bathroom into your own private spa? Treat yourself to this top-rated at-home device by Lure Belle for expert-level results and kiss your monthly trips to the beauty salon goodbye, because the results will be present in just 2-3 sessions.

ULTRASONIC SKIN SCRUBBER

at-home pore cleansing, blackheads, acne


I am always on a huge mission to get rid of blackheads, even though my acne-prone skin refuses to follow my instructions. You know, those new, innovative gadgets that promise to guide me into a life of invisible pores. However, even though I have a 30x30 drawer filled with skincare technology the All Ultrasonic Face Cleaning Skin Scrubber and its benefits came as a positive surprise.

Don't get discouraged by the name. It's actually pretty simple to operate. To all my fellow lazy gals, you will be happy to hear that this Ultrasonic Face Cleaning Skin Scrubber is easy to carry, use, and charge through a computer, mobile power, or mobile phone charger- sounds great, I know. The spatula is made of 100% stainless steel and all you have to do is press and hold the power button for 2 seconds to turn on the device, then press the button to select the desired mode and you are good to go!

Your new at-home facial pore cleaning solution has three different modes to ensure long-lasting results no matter your skin type.

1. Let's clean our faces: The high vibrations ultrasonic technology delivers just the right amount of pressure and vibration in order to remove dead skin and blackheads with ease. It allows water molecules to seep into your skin pores and exfoliate oil, dead skin cells, and dirt build-up.

2. Don't forget to moisturize: That's the part that caught me by surprise. Most skincare gadgets begin and end with the promise of delivering blackhead-free skin but, this one takes the "care" in skincare one step further. It will break down molecules (like VC and collagen) to help you massage your skin and absorb nutrients.

3. Lifting mode: The miracle micro-current pulse technology can activate cell vitality, regenerate your skin's collagen and help you restore elasticity due to its massaging function.

MICRODERMABRASION

at-home microdermadrasion

If there is one thing you can take from my previous skincare missteps, is that adding a microdermabrasion device to your current weekly face-washing lineup is one of the best things you can do to ensure every last bit of makeup, dead cells, sebum, and excess oil, from the day is completely removed.

Aside from cleansing, these gadgets also offer the side benefit of gently exfoliating the outer skin and therefore sloughing away blackheads, whiteheads, unclog pores, and other skin impurities for a brighter, smoother, and more even skin texture.

The vacuum suction increases blood circulation and triggers the skin's natural healing process which boosts collagen and elastin, leaving your skin firm, fresh and radiant. After 4 treatments the long-term benefits will be visually noticeable, with firmer, smoother, velvety skin. The high-quality ABS material allows for comfortable and non-slip grips.

Due to the unique design of this device, the multiple abrasive edges offer deep skin exfoliation with each pass. You will notice a reduction in fine lines, wrinkles, blackheads and will experience much fewer breakouts overall. The 3 adjustable suction levels and 5 interchangeable suction heads for free adjustment, widely suit different skin types and work on different skin areas. It will offer a deeper clean, while also doubling as a gentle exfoliation device as well as a mild acne scarring treatment.

Simple Self-Care Routine Ideas For Healthy Mind, Body & Soul During Covid

The traumatizing events of the past year led millions of people to experience feelings of distress and anxiety. Some decided to take the longer route of shielding themselves from the source of their discomfort in hopes of overcoming it quicker, while others might have felt the hum of stress radiating through their skin, while the fatigue of too many sleepless nights in a row slowly took over. We are all in this together! Your mental health matters and your feelings are valid.

A holistic approach to self-care that goes beyond taking care of your physical well-being. It’s looking deep into your mental health, emotional health, social engagement, spiritual wellbeing to identify the cause of your distress. There might be a sheer number of things you need to address, the disempowerment you are feeling is only temporary. However, incorporating some easy self-care tips into your daily routine might be exactly what you need to recharge yourself and find a much-needed balance during these tough times.


Simple ideas to upgrade your self-care routine


A self-care journey towards mindfulness and emotional healing




Gratitude journaling is a fantastic way of curb your naturally negative outlook on life by focusing on the little details of your day that add more optimism and perspective. As you get more accustomed to writing, your list will grow larger and more detailed, pinpointing even the smallest reasons that make you feel grateful each day. As a result, you will be more capable of making sense of certain feelings and events while shedding off all the self-blame and guilt tormenting you.

Consider it as a top self-therapy way that will allow you to feel inner peace while accelerating your healing journey of self-love and self-acceptance.

By making one small change in your day, you'll soon find that you feel healthier, happier, and more motivated. Small, attainable goals add up to create a big impact on your self-care routine.


Start journaling


Organize your home



Getting rid of that stack of clothes that always seem to pile up in your closet is a great way to start your self-care ritual. The pile of shoes by the door, your overflowing makeup drawer, every little thing can bring you a sense of well-being. Remember, cluttered environments are scientifically linked with stress and lower self-control.

Time to organize

Drink more water



Even though obvious, chances are that you aren't drinking as much water as you should have on a daily basis. Keep refilling your water bottle every hour. Your body needs fluids to maintain a healthy level of energy, plus dehydration may often cause dizziness, confusion, and low blood pressure.


Take an hour off to focus on yourself




Moms, busy college students, etc, often put their own needs aside to focus on a million other things. However, even just a few minutes of “me time” will help you recharge and uplift your mood. Pausing to get on a 10-minute phone call with your best friends or relatives enables you to distress and unwire. In fact, taking your mind off of your daily responsibilities, even for an hour, can promote relaxation and less stress.

This LGBTQ+ Fashion Brand Is About To Be An Important Leader In LGBTQ+ Rights

genderless fashion brands gay friendly fashion

During this time of advocacy and reform, it's important to celebrate love and togetherness by raising your voice even if you aren't a part of the LGBTQ+ community at all. Whether or not you are an active member of the community, there is a slew of ways to show your support to the LGBTQ+ and put your money toward a good cause—by donating to organizations that advocate for the LGBTQ+ community and their rights.

Although today more and more brands are casting queer people in their campaigns and runway shows, we find it really hard to spend money on those who blindly disregard the importance of diversity and inclusivity—2021 demands for actions deeper than rainbow-colored merch and Instagram ads to match a specific marketing agenda.

With many giant fashion brands getting in on the celebration with Pride collections, it's safe to say that the collaborative efforts of the community really paid off, however, we still have a long way to go.

While we are always happy to see established brands advocating for LGBTQ+ rights with seasonal capsule collections, we can't help but notice the fact that some of these exact "allies" also actively lobby against 2LGBTQ+ rights. The hard reality is that good business comes from authentic representation and unfortunately, the rainbow has been coopted by corporations as a sedative again enacting any real and equitable change in the industry. The illusion of inclusion for the 2LGBTQ+ folks is simply not good enough, and that's where Decades comes in.

Decades' is on a mission to bring value and make a genuine difference to the community while creating a safe space where inclusivity and diversity are celebrated every step of the way. Genderless collections that aren't following seasonal trends are important because they show that fashion can go beyond what is deemed as "in style" to serve a true purpose. Decades' efforts to promote gender equality in the fashion industry surely don't go unnoticed.

Thanks to the all-inclusive lines, you can now literally "wear" your pride in a liberating way that does not conform to society's norms. On the contrary, it's a true expression of your beautiful, individual self. Yes, they've always intended to use it as an avenue to support community efforts and celebrate LGBTQ history, however that doesn't mean that a cisgender person cannot wear those utterly beautiful designs. Plus, each order will come dressed in sustainable, eco-friendly packaging.

unisex fashion brands LQBTQ+

Following hard-working small businesses on social media, interacting, and sharing their content is another excellent way to show support. So, as you excitedly wait for their first collection to drop, you can follow them on Instagram or subscribe to their newsletter for future updates.

Mother's Day 2021- Gifts Ideas We Know Your Mum Will Love


As a well-known procrastinator, I often find myself scrambling for gifts at the last minute. This is particularly true when it comes to Mother's Day, given that both I and my father often neglect to buy gifts in advance. Obviously, I never want my mother to know we waited until the last minute (even though she is fully aware), so over the years, I've refined my quest tactics and become an expert at discovering incredible last-minute Mother's Day gifts. Although this isn't a skill I can list on my resume, it's something I use at least once a year.

 Finding a gift that my mother would like on the Internet is much easier than searching shops all over town in this day and age. Although I love a good shopping spree, there are occasions when you just need to order something quickly online and get it delivered in a matter of days.

Mother's Day is rapidly approaching, so now is the time to choose a present for your mother—and maybe even splurge on expedited shipping. We made our beds, and now I think we have to sleep in them.

Fortunately for you, I've compiled a list of 13 utterly cute and useful presents that your mother will adore, ranging from beauty products to fashion accessories and more. Any of them is available for purchase online on Cutie Aesthetics, plus they pay extra attention to COVID-19 safety requirements in handling. You're welcome—and you can get them delivered right to your mother's door. You can still blame the package's late arrival on unexpectedly sluggish delivery.
