Hair Care

As much as we’d like to, air drying our hair has been a luxury that we can’t easily afford with our fast-paced lifestyle. Hence, blow drying our hair has become the most convenient way to look polished before stepping out of the door. But no matter how convenient it may be, blow drying is known to harm our hair- making it weak and brittle. However, blow drying our hair need not be as harmful as we may think. Proper hair care while blow drying our hair will not only pose less damages to our mane, it can also make blow dried hair last for days.

The most ideal state when blow drying hair is when it has been freshly-washed. All hair care products will go to waste once hair is blow dried without washing it since dirty hair is most prone to damage. Make sure that hair has been dried off from excess water by blotting hair with towel. Before blow drying, proper hair care should be done to protect the hair. Apply hair product on the strands of the hair such as a leave-on conditioner, a good styling mousse, or a hair serum to coat the fine strands. These hair care products will also help in lending volume to hair and keep frizz at bay. Take care of the hair while blow drying by using medium settings and making sure it is more than 6 inches away from the head. Choosing the highest setting might “burn” the hair or will eventually make hair prone to breakage.

When blow drying hair start with the fingers first and then move on to soft brushes and wide toothed combs. This is a good hair care practice since both heat, hard brushes and combs when combined together will produce so much stress on the hair which can cause hair shedding later on, especially when hair is regularly blow dried. During the blow drying process, try bending a little and let the inner sides of the hair to be blow dried to protect the outer hairs from being overdone.

Eliminating Large Facial Pores

Large pores on the face can make any person look tired and ageing, so it’s no wonder many are seeking ways to eliminate or at least minimize the appearance of skin pores.

There are also those that no matter how confident they are with their bodies, they still have those little flabs here and there which the world doesn’t need to know. Really good shoulders and arms?

Steaming the face before cleaning it thoroughly will help unclog the pores since warm water opens up the pores. After cleansing, be sure to close the pores using cold water and facial toner. Using a toner after deep cleansing the face would be a proper way to fully minimize large skin pores.
