Wrinkles are a natural part of aging and can be a sign of wisdom and experience. However, if you are not ready to look as old and wise as you may feel, there are ways to delay the onset of wrinkles and minimize their appearance. Here are a few tips for preventing wrinkles: 

Develop a Good Skin Care Routine: Taking care of your skin is a lifelong venture. The earlier you start adhering to a balanced routine, the better your face will look when you are older. If skin care was not a priority in your youth, there are still ways to help your skin regenerate including anti-wrinkle serums, moisturizers, and hydrating agents. In addition to your daily skin care routine, you should also ensure that you use sunscreen or SPF protected makeup when outdoors. 

Find Your Anti-Wrinkle Agent: Of the variety of anti-aging products on the market, serums have been some of the most effective. When choosing a serum, you should look for one with powerful, natural ingredients and minimal additives like the Matrixyl 3000 Serum from Timeless Skin Care. The Matrixyl 3000 serum contains a powerful anti-wrinkle fighting formula that also hydrates your skin.  

Self-Care: Healthy, radiant skin starts from the inside, which is why you should try to consume a healthy diet, drink plenty of water and adhere to a balanced lifestyle. The skin is the largest organ in the body and goes through a variety of processes on a daily basis, which is why you need plenty of nutrients and water to keep your skin healthy. Stress and lack of sleep can also be potent contributors to wrinkles. Balancing your work load with self-care will make you happier overall and help avoid premature age-related changes in your skin. 

While aging is inevitable, you can avoid or at least minimize wrinkles by taking good care of your body and keeping a solid skin care routine.



  Sa MARK Scrub-om sam se prvi put susrela pre nešto manje od godinu dana. Svoje oduševljenje ovim pilingom za lice i telo na bazi kafe podelila sam i sa vama na blogu. Tada sam imala prilike da isprobam piling u aromi Coffee Kokos, i koristila sam ga sve doskora, a onda mi je u ruke došlo novo pakovanje, ovoga puta u aromi Coffee Citrus. Pored ove dve pomenute arome, dostupno je još nekoliko njih: Coffee Original, Coffee Čokolada, Coffee Pepermint i Coffee Tea Tree & Jojoba. A tu je i piling za našu jaču polovinu - MARK for HIM after GYM.


  MARK Scrub je potpuno prirodan piling za lice i telo, napravljen od najfinijih zrna kafe robuste. Pored kafe ovaj piling sadrži i druge prirodne sastojke kao što su: bademovo ulje, kokosovo ulje, smeđi šećer, morska so i vitamin E. A evo kako ti sastojci deluju na našu kožu. Kafa sadrži antioksidante, sprečava pojavu bora na koži i poboljšava cirkulaciju. Bademovo i kokosovo ulje imaju umirujuće dejstvo, hrane i hidriraju kožu čineći je mekom i glatkom. Smeđi šećer i morska so uklanjaju nečistoće i mrtve ćelije sa kože. Vitamin E štiti kožu od raznih negativnih uticaja okoline i poboljšava njenu strukturu. A neodoljivi miris citrusa popravlja raspoloženje.
  Piling dolazi u zanimljivom pakovanju, retro dizajna, u papirnoj kesici koja je iznutra obložena zaštitnom folijom te čuva piling od vlage, tako da ga bez brige možete držati u svom kupatilu. Na poleđini pakovanja pronaćićete i uputstvo za korišćenje. Ovo pakovanje sadrži 200gr proizvoda, a rok trajanja je 6 meseci.



  Kako se koristi? Može se koristiti i kao piling za lice i kao piling za telo. Nanosi se (dovoljno je sasvim malo proizvoda) na vlažnu kožu ili vlažnim dlanovima. Kružnim pokretima ili laganom masažom nanesite piling na svoju kožu i ostavite da deluje 5 minuta, a onda isprerite. Preporuka je da se koristi dva do tri puta nedeljno. Primetićete da nakon korišćenja ovog pilinga vaša koža dugo vremena ostaje hidrirana, glatka i meka. Kao neko ko ima suvu kožu, teško nalazim proizvode koji će joj pružiti potrebnu hidrataciju, i učiniti je mekom i elastičnom. Zadovoljna sam načinom na koji to ovaj piling radi, i preporučujem ga svima bez obzira na tip kože, ali posebno onima koji imaju suvu kožu kao ja. Samo odaberite svoju omiljenu mirisnu notu i budite sigurne da će MARK brinuti o vašoj koži.



Da li ste već isprobale MARK Scrub? Koja je vaša omiljena aroma?
Puno pozdrava do narednog posta,

Which Jewelry is Appropriate for a Black Dress? 

Before going out, the age-old question that one must ask before standing in front of the mirror and deciding on their outfit is obvious: “which women’s jewelry will work with my black dress?” Fortunately for you, the black dress offers a blank palette to which just about any jewelry can be added.
The little black dress is a fashion icon, and it remains a staple to this day. It fits just about everybody, can be worn to many events, and never goes out of style.
If you are looking to change up the look a little bit, you can add jewelry and other accessories to adjust the formality and style of your particular outfit. This is why you must consider your jewelry before going out. Here’s what you need to know. 

Type of Occasion
  • If you are going to a formal event, you can go the classic route with a beautiful set of pearls. If you don’t want to stand out quite as much, choose something simple yet fine.
  • If you are going out for a night on the town, choose something that will shine under the lights of the night. The sheen from your jewelry will not go unnoticed when others see your look.
  • If you are going for a more casual vibe, look to add brown earthy colors.
  • For work scenarios, try not to be as flashy as you might be when you go out on the town. Instead, choose fine pieces like bracelets and rings, perhaps even a simple necklace.
  • If you are just looking to have a dressed-up casual day, add some pizzazz to your outfit with some sources of color or statement jewelry. Another cool look is the long necklace, which is very trendy right now.

Ornamentation
If your black dress is already ornately decorated, keep your paired jewelry simple. Maybe think about adding a simple set of earrings or a more basic bracelet. Also, consider sticking to one material color to avoid appearing gaudy.
Balance is key when choosing jewelry, so don’t choose more than one chunky item. Find one statement piece that you really like, and work around that to complete your look.
If you have long earrings on, don’t wear a necklace. Wearing a necklace will just be too much.
Material matching is another thing to remember in addition to color matching. Make sure that all of your accessories are matching when it comes to their material and quality.
If you want to go over the top with your outfit, add a fancy touch like a tiara or a diadem to really take it to the next level.

Colors
You can’t go wrong when it comes to matching with black. This is why the little black dress is so useful and important to your wardrobe. That being said, some colors just don’t look as good. Avoid navy blue and brown when wearing black, but just about everything else is fair game.
If you want to look a little more dapper, choose some gold or silver jewelry to make yourself look a little more expensive.
If you want to stand out and be a little bit creative, add something with color to differentiate yourself. Bright colors like red, blue, emerald green, yellow, or orange are sure to earn you some great looks during your day.

Neckline
When choosing a dress, remember that the neckline you choose will definitely limit the number of choices you have in the jewelry department.
  • For the most flexibility, a simple jewel neckline means you can wear just about any length of necklace. One style to avoid here is a choker.
  • A variety of necklaces also look good with a scoop or square neckline. To look best, ensure that your necklace is shorter or longer than your dress neckline.
  • Chokers and other short necklaces look best with strapless dresses.
  • Pendants tend to accentuate the v-neck, which makes them best for v-shaped necklines. 

Body Type
When considering your jewelry, body type must be taken into account. Choose jewelry that best compliments you, not necessarily jewelry that amplifies your body type. Larger pieces are in play if you are curvy, but they might seem over the top on a smaller frame. Also, taller women can get away with wearing longer necklaces than their shorter counterparts.

Final Words
Black dresses are known for their utility, and that is why they remain so popular to this day. You don’t really need to stress about matching with the color, so you have the freedom to play around with jewelry and other accessories. Hopefully, this set of guidelines can help you to find the perfect combination of dress and jewelry for your next night on the town.


   Pre izvesnog vremena za moje koleginice iz Naissus Blogger Fair-a i mene stigli su predivni paketići od brenda Essence. Drago nam je da sve više brendova pokazuje interesovanje za saradnju sa našom organizacijom i nakon blogerskog okupljanja koje smo organizovale u novembru, kada nas je podržalo 10ak domaćih i inostranih kozmetičkih brendova. Sadržaj svog Essence paketića podelila sam sa vama na insta pričama, a nakon testiranja proizvoda evo i mojih utisaka. Budući da su nam poslali baš puno proizvoda recenciju istih podelila sam u dva dela. Danas sa vama delim utiske o proizvodima za oči i usne, a u nekom od narednih postova moćićete da čitate i o proizvodima za ten.


  ESSENCE MATT MATT MATT VIBRANT SHOCK LIPSTICK - Krenuću od svog favorita, mat ruža u stiku iz kolekcije Matt Matt Matt Vibrant Shock. Ruževe u stiku gotovo više i ne koristim, njih su zamenili oni tečni. Ipak ovaj ruž me je potpuno oduševio! Nijansa koju sam dobila je u broju 11 ili rave it up! Nisam je sama birala, ali da sam imala prilike da izaberem sigurno bih se za nju odlučila, budući da volim ruževe u tamnim nijansama, posebno ljubičastim. Ova nijansa je baš lepa, tamna ljubičasta. Potpuna i ujednačena pokrivenost postiže se već u prvom sloju, što je vrlo iznenađujuće za jedan mat karmin u stiku tamnije nijanse. Bar kod nekih koje sam ranije koristila za to su bila potrebna 2-3 sloja i dosta popravki. Ima finu mat završnicu, koja gotovo da ne isušuje usne i dugo traje na usnama, što je opet pohvalno za jedan ovakav proizvod.  

  ESSENCE SHINE SHINE SHINE WET LOOK LIPGLOSS - Ne pamtim kada sam poslednji put koristila neki sjaj za usne, i ovo je trenutno jedini koji imam u svojoj kolekciji šminke. Ponovo jedna lepa ljubičasta nijansa u broju 12 ili runway iz The Bolds linije. Pakovanje je vrlo atraktivno, a ono što mi se posebno dopada je četkica koja je blago zašiljena te omogućava lako i precizno nanošenje. Formulacija je pomalo providna, tako da nema potpune pokrivenosti ali usnama daje visoki sjaj, wet look i puniji izgled. Nije lepljiv na usnama, što posebno cenim kod ovakvih proizvoda. Jedina zamerka je to što nije postojan, pa se mora češće nanositi, što je ipak i za očekivati od jednog sjaja za usne.


   ESSENCE THE VELVETS VELVETY-SOFT & LONGLASTING EYESHADOW - Mono senke iz The Velvets kolekcije dostupne su, ako se ne varam, u 9 različitih nijansi. Dolaze u preslatkom providnom pakovanju i sadrže 2,8 gr proizvoda. Posebno privlačno kod ovih senki jeste otisak na teksturi proizvoda. Nijanse koje sam dobila na testiranje su 03 smooth caramel i 06 mocca-bean. Prva je bež varijanta kod koje završnica nije u potpunosti mat, već sadrži malo shimmera koji je pak na kapcima neupadljiv. Srednje pigmentovana, a u zavisnosti od looka koji želite postići može se nadograđivati. Druga nijansa, ili mocca-bean je tamnija braon nijansa, i kod nje gotovo i da nema shimmera. Odlične je pigmentacije! Tekstura ovih senki je fina i baršunasta, ne truse se, lako se nanose i ujednačeno blendaju.


   ESSENCE LIPLINER - I za kraj tu su i dve olovke, jedna za usne i jedna za oči. Najpre par reči o olovci za usne. U pitanju je Essence Lipliner u nijansi 14 femme fatale. Prava crvena! Odlične pigmentacije, lako se nanosi, ravnomerno i ne grudva se. Koristim je da uokvirim usne pre nanošenja crvenih mat ruževa. Olovka se lako oštri i ne lomi se, što je više nego važno kod ovakvih proizvoda.

   ESSENCE EXTREME LASTING EYE PENCIL EASY GLIDE & WATERPROOF - Nijansa koju sam dobila je 04 nighttime in the gungle - tamno siva nijansa sa zlatastim šimerom. Kao što u nazivu kaže lako se nanosi, bukvalno klizi na kapku, dakle formulacija nije nimalo suva, već kremasta. Odlične je pigmentacije, i u jednom potezu postiže se pun efekat ove olovke. Super je za one za situacije kada nemate puno vremena za šminkanje a ipak ne želite bez šminke napolje. Samo izvučete liniju duž kapka i malo je ublažite za "smudged" izgled.

Da li ste isprobale neki od ovih proizvoda?
Kakvi su vaši utisci?

  Kao što znate "Beauty Report" je nova rubrika na blogu a koju uređujem zajedno sa Jovanom Stanković sa bloga "Priče jedne veštice". Današnji beauty izveštaj stiže iz jedne relativno nove prodavnice šminke u Nišu. U pitanju je "Make-Up Boutique", a koji se nalazi u ulici Nikole Pašića, 22. Na ovoj adresi možete naći veliku ponudu makeup proizvoda poznatih svetskih brendova, a neke brendove i proizvode čak ekskluzivno u Nišu. U današnjem postu Jovana i ja vam prenosimo tek deo njihove ponude, i pozivamo vas da se prošetate do ove simpatične radnjice i razgledate i ispobate njihove proizvode. Ukoliko pak niste iz Niša ili okoline, postoji mogućnost online poručivanja, putem njihove instagram stranice @makeupboutique_nis.


  Ono što nam je privuklo najviše pažnje jeste štand sa makeup proizvodima brenda NOTE. U pitanju je nemački brend sa proizvodnjom u Turskoj, a čiji su proizvodi odnedavno dostupni i na našem tržištu. U Nišu se njihovi proizvodi ekskluzino mogu kupiti baš u ovoj radnji. Takođe mogu se poručiti i putem njihove intagram stranice. Što se tiče asortimana ovog brenda, izbor proizvoda je zaista veliki i pokriva sve kategorije proizvoda za ten, oči i usne, a cene su zaista pristupačne. Posebno vam preporučujem da bacite pogled na njihove ruževe, dostupno je nekoliko kolekcija, a izbor nijansi je veoma širok.


  Make-Up Boutique je jedno od retkih, ako ne i jedino mesto u Nišu koje ima najveću ponudu GOLDEN ROSE proizvoda, između ostalog i onih iz poslednje kolekcije - METALS, za koje nas toliko vas često pita gde se u Nišu mogu kupiti, s obzirom da ih u velikim drogerijama nema. Konačno imamo odgovor na to pitanje! Tu je i celokupna ponuda proizvoda iz LongStay kolekcije, za koje takođe znamo da se ne mogu lako pronaći. Ovde vas zasigurno čekaju sve nijanse popularnih LongStay tečnih mat ruževa! Svakako, tu su i proizvodi iz njihovih ranijih linija, a osim šminke i veliki izbor lakova za nokte, veštačkih trepavica kao i blendera i tufera ovog brenda.


  Bilo da ste verni svojim favoritima kada su proizvodi ili brendovi u pitanju, ili volite da eksperimentišete sa šminkom i probate nove stvari, Make-Up Boutique je mesto koje morate posetiti. Pored proizvoda gore pomenutih proizvođača, u ovoj prodavnici možete kupiti i šminku brendova: Max Factor, Maybelline, Bourjois, Rimmel, Revlon, L'Oreal, Flormar, Impala, Malena, Brooklyn, kao i domaćeg (niškog) brenda Aura.


  Uz ovako veliki izbor proizvoda i brendova, pristupačne cene, mogućnost da na licu mesta isprobate svaki proizvod, divno i ljubazno osoblje koje je tu da odgovori na svako vaše pitanje ali i da vam preporuči proizvod koji će vam odgovarati, sigurna sam da iz Make-Up Boutique-a nećete izaći praznih ruku. Jovana i ja svakako nismo! Svoje utiske o onome što sam pronašla za sebe u ovom malom makeup wonderland-u podeliću sa vama u nekom od narednih postova na blogu.


"Make-Up Boutique" se nalazi u ulici Nikole Pašića 22, u Nišu.

  Every woman wants to restore her pre-baby body. Some celebrities have managed to get their bodies back after having a baby. Some have revealed how they wore corsets to achieve this. If you are hearing about girdles for the first time, you might be wondering why women wear them. There are various reasons why you might want to wear postpartum corsets. Check below to see the benefits you stand to gain by wearing the girdles and perhaps try them next time.

Comfort
Many people think that they will feel uncomfortable if they wear girdles. But that is a wrong impression. After the birth of your child, you are likely to feel as if your organs are moving in the additional space. Wearing corsets helps to avoid such feelings hence making you feel comfortable. It also makes it easy to sit in bed even without applying your arms.

Speedy after pregnancy recovery

You may wear girdles if you want to have a speedy post pregnancy recovery. This is because, after the delivery of your child, the midsection gets deflated. It takes some time for the stomach muscles to recover strength and get back to the normal size. In case of a C-section, the girdles add excellent incision support hence assisting in the quick recovery of the muscles.

Reduces back pain

Having back pain during pregnancy is normal. Persistent pain after giving birth can be annoying. Not only that but it will also assist to improve your posture. Wearing corsets after giving birth may help to reduce the pain.

Boosts your confidence

After spending nine months carrying your baby and walking around with a protruding belly, you need to have or wear something that will boost your confidence. The binders help your stomach to get back to its previous size hence enabling you to wear the clothes you wore before with confidence.

Disadvantages of wearing corsets

According to a few healthcare providers, putting on corsets might affect your digestive system, anxiety incontinence e as well as weaken your back muscles. This is because they bind the stomach wall too firmly.
Combining tight girdles with vigorous exercises raises the risk of low blood pressure, clots, and weakened bladder. That is why it is necessary to consult your obstetrician before deciding to use a girdle. You may also check the postpartum girdles review to find the recommended for you.

Conclusion

Most women get disturbed about their shape once they give birth. Regaining your lost shape is not easy and may take a long time if you are not wearing corsets.  That is why it is essential to use girdles to restore your body shape faster. However, finding the best from the many in the market is not easy because there are several brands. You may check reviews or ask your obstetrician so he can advise you on the best way to go about regaining your shape. If you also had a C-section, you should consult your doctor before wearing the corsets immediately after having your baby.
