A Teal September: National Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month

I wanted to share this great article for my female readers to read. It is very important to be aware especially we can teach younger woman. Cancer is a threatnening disease and can kill us. Go to your gyno and get check yearly with pap smears. Its an important date please don't miss it. (thanks Modern Salon Magazine for this article)
Your salon may not be awash in teal during September the way it is in pink during October, and it’s likely that you’re not even aware that teal is the signature color for ovarian cancer awareness. As National Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month has just begun, this is a great time to educate yourself and your clients about a disease that is diagnosed in about 20,000 women each year.
The scariest part is that, in 60 percent of cases, the diagnosis doesn’t occur until the cancer has reached stage 3, causing death rates to be as high as three out of four diagnosed. So while it accounts for only about 3 percent of all cancers in women, ovarian cancer causes more deaths than any other cancer of the female reproductive system.
With its subtle symptoms, it’s no wonder it’s referred to as the “silent” disease. According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), women should be alert to:
*Any unusual vaginal bleeding or discharge from the vagina.
*Pain in the pelvic or abdominal area (the area below your stomach and between your hip bones).
*Back pain.
*Stomach bloating.
*Feeling full quickly while eating.
*A change in bathroom habits, such as having to pass urine very badly or often, constipation or diarrhea.
Are you at risk? If you’re a woman and have your ovaries, yes. City of Hope lists these factors that put you at higher risk than other women:
*Personal and family history. Your risk increases if you or a close relative has had ovarian cancer or cancer of the breast, uterus, colon or rectum. If you have a strong family history of ovarian or breast cancer, you may want to pursue genetic testing to learn more about your risk.
*Age. Most ovarian cancers develop after menopause, and half develop after the age of 63.
*Reproductive history. Every pregnancy you have decreases your risk, and studies indicate that birth control pills and breast feeding may further lower the risk.
*Estrogen or hormone replacement therapy. Studies suggest that women who take estrogen by itself (estrogen without progesterone) for 10 or more years may have an increased risk of ovarian cancer.
*Obesity. Various studies point to a relation between obesity and ovarian cancer, and a study from the American Cancer Society found a higher death rate from ovarian cancer in obese women.

4 Tips for Growing in Your Eyebrows

I have been leaving my eyebrows go. If you’ve been the victim of over-tweezing, you know how frustrating it can be to wait for your eyebrows to grow back in. But with a little patience (ok, maybe a LOT of patience!) and the right tools, you’ll be well on your way to fuller brows in no time. Try not to despair; there’s a solution for every scenario. Read ahead for some tips to getting back to fuller, more beautiful brows.

4 Tips for Growing in Your Eyebrows

First and foremost STOP, DO NOT tweeze them anymore! It can be tempting to try to fix the shape or balance them out, but the worst thing you can do is take out the little bit of hair you do have left. Put those tweezers away for a while and let your brows grow in until they’re full enough to re-shape.

Stimulate Hair Growth: Gently exfoliating the skin can stimulate hair growth by removing dead skin cells that may be clogging the hair follicle.

Fake it ‘Till You Make It: Just because your brows are not at their optimal shape and thickness doesn’t mean you can’t make it look like they are. Fill them and re shape them while they are growing with an eye brow  pencil.

Eat a Healthy Diet: Stimulate your hair growth the natural way by eating a healthy hair and skin diet including plenty of protein, vitamin B, iron, zinc, and Omega 3′s. Add nuts, olive oil, fish, lean meats, and leafy greens to make sure your body is getting what it needs to grow your hair back.

Spooky Eyes for any Ocassion


I was recently introduced to Dream Eyes Contact Lenses by SpookyEyes.com.  They have a new range of lenses and new designs that the company added to their store. Dream Eyes Contact Lenses are high quality fashion contact lenses and are FDA approved. They are soft and breathable, with a high water content that makes them very comfortable to wear. They also have fun design for Halloween or any fun event.

I'm posting a review I never thought I'd do, but when the opportunity came along, I figured why not?
Spooky Eyes sent me a pair of colored contacts to review, their Natural Light Brown  to be precise. The contacts are non-prescription, and come as a pair. They are stored in packets with a sterile saline solution, just like standard contacts.
Another great thing is that, once opened and if they are properly taken care of, your Dream Eyes contacts are good for 12 months!

Do I look creepy, spooky or like an Alien?

The Best Eye Shadow for Your Eye Color

One of my favorite ways to wear makeup is to emphasize the eyes and wear a subtle lip color. I usually reverse the look and make my lips pop for the evening night out. However you choose to apply it, there are some shadow colors that look amazing when paired with certain eye colors. If you’re looking to enhance your own natural eye color, here’s a list of complementary shades that will make the look pop.

The Best Eye Shadow for Your Eye Color

Brown Eyes - Brown eyes can really pull of a great variety of looks. To make them pop, try using shades of blue, navy, or purple for a fashion forward look. For an intense look, play with fake eyelashes. It can change the look dramatically.

Hazel Eyes – To emphasize the blended beauty of hazel eyes, try using shades of gold, grey, and brown.

Green Eyes – To really play up green eyes, try using shades of burgundy, violet, and pink. Shades of dark blue are also a great way to offset the eye’s natural color.

Blue Eyes – try warm tones such as bronze, peach, brown and mauve make a beautiful contrast.

Grey Eyes – Grey eyes really sparkle in shades of plum, dark green, violet, and mauve. For a smoky look, use a smudged eyeliner in Dark Browns

Thank you,

BB, CC, and DD Creams


With BB, CC, and now DD creams in the store counters, makeup shopping can get confusing. To much to learn but truth be told, there’s not a ton of differences and

 Here's is a comparison list in details:

BB Creams
What it stands for: Beauty balm
Texture: Creamy and moisturizing
What it does: Offers daily sun protection, extra hydration, and a touch more coverage than a tinted moisturizer. Because they don't have a high concentration of anti-aging ingredients, "use them as a supplement—not in place of—your other anti-aging creams or serums.

CC Creams 
What it stands for: Color correcting
Texture: Lightweight and fast-absorbing
What it does: Imparts an airy veil of coverage and a boost of both instant and protective coverage. "They typically have light-diffusing particles, which visually even skin tone, plus a super-dose of antioxidants.

DD Creams
What it stands for: Daily defense
Texture: See BB Creams
What it does: Not much more than its predecessors. "These have SPF, protect the skin barrier to prevent moisture loss, and balance uneven tone. Ps. DDs were created for dry areas like feet, knees, and elbows.

I hope you understand them a little more. Which ones do you like? I use CC Studio Gear Cream, sometimes under my foundation for extra coverage and smoothness on certain spots on my face.

What do you use? Let us know in the comment section below.

You're Doing It Wrong With Face Wipes


We use cleansing wipes in place of a real cleanser-and-water routine a bit more often than we’d like to admit. We’ve also been hearing some rumors about the potential negative side effects of using them regularly, which just about scared us back to soap and water every night yet again. That was probably a good choice.
“Cleansing wipes are a great option to wash away some of the dirt and grime when on the go, after the gym, or when getting home super late after a night of dancing, but they shouldn’t be viewed as a permanent substitute for twice daily cleansing at the sink,” says Dr. Marnie Nussbaum, a board certified dermatologist and chief medical spokesperson for Sebamed. “The active ingredients in makeup remover wipes are generally the same as regular cleansers: Both rely on surfactants, which dissolve makeup as well as help lift makeup, oil and dead skin.”
The biggest difference between cleansing wipes and a proper facial cleanser, she says, “is that without the added step of rinsing with water, wipes aren’t as thorough and leave behind a portion of the grime on your skin. Since you’re not rinsing the residue left behind, skin is often exposed to high concentrations of solubilizers and surfactants that can leave skin dry and irritated.”
As for what not to do? Dr. Nussbaum advises against using cleansing wipes for more than three days in a row. “When you’re back at the sink, make sure to replenish skin with a milky cleanser that will really emulsify leftover residue,” like Sebamed Liquid Face and Body Wash ($39.95, sebamedusa.com). She says of the cleanser, “It’s a great multi-tasking, soap-free milky cleanser that provides a gentle, deep cleansing of the pores while naturally conditioning the skin.”
