How safe is waxing, really?

Human need of looking better has been one of the things that kept us apart from the rest of the animal kingdom. Even though many animals have managed to develop a way of enhancing their appearance, for example, through multiple colouring which attracts the opposite sex, people have perfected this and now we see different beautifying methods.
When it comes to hair removal, waxing was one of the most popular methods for getting smooth, silky skin ever since the time of the upheaval of the Ancient Egypt. They used beeswax and sugar-based wax to remove bodily hair, even including head hair (it is well known that they removed hair due to lice problems, so they covered their heads with wigs in return).
However, even though waxing is one of the oldest methods of hair removal, it carries a few risks which are rarely being talked about. If you’re a delicate flower with sensitive skin like me, you may want to read on.

Why I chose to do the brow lift

To be perfectly honest, I never thought I would join the ‘I have had a plastic surgery’ club; it was simply something I believed was ‘out of my league’. I believed the girls who do that are shallow and too vain, and refused to even think about a surgery until I was sixty. It happened that I had to reconsider all that because of my eyebrows. I never knew how important person’s eyebrows are until I started having difficulties with mine. They stood too low on my face and had made my life miserable for several years.

Caring for your skin is not just a simple act of washing your face and massaging a crème in every once in a while. It isn’t about the most expensive cosmetics either. There is nothing static about it, really – every season is a new adventure that requires particular caring process.

Know that this process will take a lot of discipline and getting used to, but once it becomes a part of your daily/monthly/seasonal routine, you’ll be okay.  Plus, your skin will thank you in the long run!

Why I’m Loving #BodyPosi

   As I’m sure everyone knows in this day and age negative body outlooks are unfortunately a big part of today’s society. Everywhere you look in the media you see articles ranging from: how to obtain the “perfect” body to crazy fad diets that absolutely no one can possibly stick to for any length of time. So of course, it only seems natural that the majority of people are finding it hard to keep up with this day and age’s ideal body type. I myself struggled with anorexia for six years of my life and still to this day occasionally falter and succumb to wanting that Victoria’s Secret model body, however recently I’ve come across a new movement that is way more positive than “thinspiration” and that my friends is the movement of “Body Posi“.

Assuming you have been on Twitter within the past year, I’m going to guess that you have probably heard of the “BodyPosi” hashtag. But in case you haven’t let me give you the run down:
