Beautiful Lips

Some of us have less perfect lips than others. But don't despair! There are plenty of tricks of the trade to help make your lips more balanced and beautiful than others. Some of the most effective solution are
  • The best lip color fixative? - A thin layer of Chapstick. The formula holds lip color like crazy as it heals and protects.
  • Powder lips also gives lip color or gloss something to cling to for longer, smoother wear.
  • For longer wear, blot lips after applying lipstick to set color and remove excess. Add a thin layer of loose or pressed powder, then apply color again.
  • Turn down too much shine by holding a single-ply tissue to your lips and pressing a little loose powder through it - just enough will sift through the tissue to adhere to color and reduce the shine.
  • Turn up the shine with a thin layer of clear lip gloss over lipstick or alone.
  • For high-voltage shine and color, try a lip lacquer over lipstick or alone.
  • For fuller, poutier lips, spotlight lip gloss right in the center of your mouth.
  • Keep matte lip color from drying your lips - use a lip primer or lip color fixative before you apply the matte color.
  • For evening special-effects, apply a sheer lip gloss in silver, gold or an iridescent shade over the lip color
Hope this tips can make your lips looks more beautiful...

Treatment And Causes of Hair Loss in Women

For some of us, it may be inevitable to avoid loosing our hair. It may run in our genes and will be handed down to us from our parents and grandparents. For a lot of people loosing their hair is going to be part of life. There are some of us that may not have to face loosing our hair if we do some hair loss prevention first. This is a way to ensure that we keep our beautiful hair a lot longer.

Hair loss in women can include total balding, thinning or anything in between the two. It can be temporary or permanent. Often women experience hair loss due to a medical condition and when the condition is discovered and controlled, the hair loss subsides. The medical name for hair loss is alopecia. People often mistake alopecia for something only men experience however more women are beginning to come forward as sufferers of hair loss.

Some women experience hair loss due to a hormone imbalance (common after childbirth and during pregnancy), an undiagnosed disease or stress. Often, women are born with gene making them susceptible to genetic hair loss associated with aging. Other causes of hair loss in women are linked to the thyroid, vitamin deficiency and diabetes. If a woman's hormones are not balanced, she can experience hair excessive loss. This is a common occurrence in women who aren't very tolerant of birth control pills or other hormonal contraception options.

Treatment Solutions for Balding

When it comes to hair loss treatments for women, there are many options. Women must first obtain a medical physical from a dermatologist, a general practitioner or a doctor with knowledge in dermatology of the head. Most physicians aren't thrilled with the idea of using a systemic treatment (a medication/pill that will affect your entire body system). Thus, topical scalp treatments are most commonly prescribed.

Minoxidil is one of the most common hair restoration treatments. It was once used to treat high blood pressure. However, patients using it noticed increased hair growth. It was tested and discovered when applied topically to the scalp it helped restore hair growth. Most women begin treating their hair loss with Minoxidil. While it works for many, it doesn't work for everyone.
