Things To Take Care After Laser Hair Removal

New and better techniques for hair removal are constantly being developed. Some have been successful, while others have done their jobs less effectively. The success associated with hair removal is still a matter of debate. This debate centres around the fact whether hair removal offers a permanent solution for hair removal and more importantly whether it is safe or not. There are a few things that you must take care of before and after laser hair removal, to get the maximum benefit out of the procedure.
What is laser hair removal?

As the name suggests, laser hair removal is a process of epilation that uses a laser beam to destroy the hair follicle. A laser device emits a beam of light, which is absorbed by the hair follicle. It is the presence of melanin that helps the follicle to absorb this beam of light. In doing so, the follicle is destroyed and permanent hair reduction takes place. A person needs to go through various sessions of laser hair removal in order for this procedure to be successful.

After laser hair removing - Things to take care

Post treatment care is very important. Here are some things that you must consider after the end of the treatment:
- Redness of the skin is a common side effect of laser. Bumps might also appear after treatment. This is normal, and the situation takes care of itself in just a few hours. You can also use a cold compress on the area if needed.
- Liberal use of a moisturizer on the treated area will help the skin remain hydrated. This helps prevent drying of the skin and associated problems with the skin. It's advisable to not use anti bacterial creams, as they might accelerate the drying of the skin.
- A sunscreen lotion or cream should be used for a week post treatment. Preferably a sun block with SPF 25 should be used.
- When you have just undergone laser treatment, stay away from waxing, plucking, tweezing, or bleaching of the area. After a certain period of time, it's advisable to shave.
- For a period of around 3 weeks after treatment, the hair will continue to shed. You might be fooled into thinking that it is new hair growth. A washcloth can be used to help ease the removal of such hair.
- Laser will be even more effective if you don't expose the treated area to sunlight for some time. If you don't take such care, there is a chance that your laser treatment won't be as safe and successful.
Ask the expert for more information on the things to care pre and post laser hair removing. This will help make the treatment even more effective.

Permanent Hair Removal - Which is the safest method?

Permanent hair removal treatment - it's a dream come true. There would be very few women who would prefer to remain hairy. The fact is that most women want to have soft and beautiful skin and this is why you spend so much time and money in beauty salons. But again, after all the pain, the time consumed, and the money spent, you only get a temporary respite and by the next night you are again worrying about all the hair that is growing back.

It is time to put a stop to this. With technology growing to such extent and newer procedures available for our benefit, we need to make use of them. Permanent hair removal using laser techniques is an option that has been around for quite some time. Well, is it beneficial?
There are several kinds of treatments in this genre and the most popular ones are IPL and VPL. The general misconception regarding this is that IPL and VPL are actually laser based. But the answer is a complete no because these are light therapies.
Comparing Your Options For Removing Unwanted Hair
IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) uses the concept of applying different wavelengths of light to your skin and thus targeting the hair follicles making them dead and avoiding further growth.
Another treatment is VPL (Variable Pulsed Light) which is much better than anything else that is available today. This produces shorter pulses of light to the target area. What it essentially does is to heat the area of impact and make it hotter than the surrounding areas. This way that area on which the light is targeted loses all its hair as it completely kills it. In about a week's time you will notice the hair falling out.
Going ahead with a laser treatment is not the best option that you can choose because there are so many things that you will need to consider. There are the side effects because this is laser light and concentrated as well. If not performed in the right manner, you will suffer more than you did before.
The best option would be to choose between IPL and VPL. Being light therapies you can at least be confident that this will not affect your skin in any manner. VPL is ultimately the best permanent hair removal solution as it provides you with the right concentration of energy on your skin, keeping it soft and with no irritations.
Be Confident About Great Results From VPL Hair Removal
You don't want to visit the salon every month to get rid of all the hair, pay them money, and bear all the pain as well. VPL is a completely painless solution that will bring out the best results in your body. Your choice of VPL as a permanent hair removal solution can be done with utmost confidence.
One last bit of advice - make sure that the salon you are going to for treatment is certified and approved. Increase your self-confidence and the way you look at things in life. With no pain, there is maximum gain here. So go ahead and make use of this opportunity and say good-bye to unwanted hair.

Get That Radiant Skin In Summers Too !!

It is possible to achieve a beautiful and radiant skin that glows with health by following a regular facial skincare regimen in summers too. Just follow some simple steps.

Cleanse - Begin by washing away the oil on the surface and impurities clogged deep within the pores. The best products to use are those containing fruit acids with natural antiseptic properties, such as lemon and grapefruit. Dry skin needs an astringent that must cleanse and soften at the same time; while oily skin requires one that removes excess oil and refines the pores. Meanwhile, a cleanser for normal skin may contain a gentle exfoliating ingredient.

Tone - To remove residual dirt, oil and cleanser - and even stubborn makeup, use a toner. Consider a label whose properties match the skin type: hydrating action for dry skin, balancing action for normal skin, and sebum-controlling and disinfecting action for oily skin. A variety of plant extracts and natural oils can help achieve these goals.

Moisturize - To keep the skin smooth and supple, apply a moisturizer with a luxurious blend that can bring back the skin's delicate moisture, while promoting cell renewal. Marine extracts and antioxidants such as Vitamin C, Beta Glucan and Retinol are perfect for these tasks.

Other than this apply some natural facemasks from time to time to rejuvenate your facial skin and also go for good facial hair removal therapy as and when required. Along with this take in at least eight glasses of water a day. And in the morning, put on sunscreen to protect the skin from the harmful sunrays.

Hair Removal For Men - Laser Is The Way

Hair removal is growing in popularity with men too as the metrosexual man is more aware of his grooming needs and wants to do everything to look good and feel good. Laser hair removal offers options other removal methods simply cannot. Laser hair removal, unlike most other hair removal methods, can be used to thin hair instead of removing it all. So, a man can choose to be less hairy without having to be hairless. Waxing, shaving, and depilatory creams remove the hair completely, and do not offer the option of thinning overgrowth.

Laser Hair Removal Method

A laser hair removal procedure does not guarantee the hair will be permanently removed, but it significantly slows hair growth. A dermatologist or cosmetic surgery specialist will perform the procedure in his office. During the procedure, a laser beam passes through the skin into the hair follicle. The heat of the laser damages the hair follicle, preventing or slowing hair growth. The intensity of the laser must be adjusted for each individual client, and the procedure can result in mild to moderate pain or discomfort.
Laser hair removal works best on men with light skin and dark hair because the laser targets pigment. Darker hair pigments are easier for the laser destroy, while the light skin around the dark hair remains undamaged. Men with darker skin tones may still have success with laser hair removal if the hair is dark, but they may require additional treatments.
Since the laser can only target hair at the follicle in its growth cycle, do not pluck, wax or have electrolysis treatments for a few weeks prior to having laser hair removal treatment. Individual hairs have different growth cycles, so repeated treatments are necessary to catch the hair in an active growth phase. Shaving is often recommended before a laser hair removal procedure, and can possibly increase success. Tanned or sunburned skin cannot be treated with lasers. Do not use lotions or after-shave on the day of treatment, and only use numbing cream as provided or recommended by the dermatologist or technologist performing the procedure.

So all the men out there go the laser way and just not look good but feel good too !!

Skincare Tips For A Radiant Skin In Summers

Summer is finally here. And time to be extra cautious about your skin. Protecting your skin from the harmful rays of the sun, along with that keeping your skin looking radiant requires a good daily skin care regime. One of the simplest and the most important tip is to drink lots of water along with some others, which are as follows -

1. Moisturize : Hydrating your skin should be the most important part of your daily skin care in the summer season. By sweating you lose most of your body salts, so your skin needs more water. Go for a good water based moisturizer and use it daily.

2. Exfoliate : Don’t think that in summers, exfoliation is not important. Rather it is. Your body sheds skin cells at an amazing rate every minute of every day and make your skin look dull and dry. Using a good scrub, exfoliate at night rather than in the morning.

3. Sunscreen : Whenever you are going out in the sun, do not forget to apply sunscreen generously to all the exposed parts thus blocking both UVA and UVB harmful rays. The best time is to apply a sunscreen is about half an hour before going in the sun.

4. Shave : Winter is all about wearing layers but summers is all about showing off. So get rid of all those unwanted hair using some good hair removal technique, even a good razor will do. And do use a shaving lotion that will help moisturize your skin.
Just follow these simple tips and get a glowing skin in summers too !!

Minimalistic Yet Bold Is The Key For The Hot Summers

Seasons change. And with them fashion also changes. What may be popular and trendy to wear in the winter, may not cut it in the summer. So make sure that you follow the trends.

Jewellery for summer is all about color. It is a time when you can be minimalistic yet bold making a statement with your jewellery. With the beautiful sundress, strands of chunky resin beads around will look great and if you want to show off your arms in a strapless dress or a tube top then lots of colored bangles will make you look chic. For summer parties choose one key piece and work that piece alone with a sexy dress be it chandelier earrings or an elegant diamond necklace.

If you want to get a eclectic natural look then go for jewellery in natural stones and Swarovski crystals. Big cocktail rings will also be a hit. For a light summery look in the day time do try natural materials like wooden beads, leather bracelets, rubber bangles. The chunky look is the highlight. 

Just remember to look elegant and classy !!

Gift Your Girl Some Beautiful Jewelry Which She Will Cherish !!

Writing for men and women is something I usually do. But this time taking a break I have started on exploring the fashion market for kids. And I discovered that fashion for children is an emerging niche market that the world is starting to take notice of. In that children's jewellery is an important segment which has undergone a lot of changes in the recent times.
Presents for childrens jewellery mark special occasions like christening ceremonies, birthdays or other events. Market is flooded with variety of materials and designs. But there are some important considerations when buying children's jewelry and these should be weighed carefully like when you are buying jewelry for a toddler you should take care about the material as they have a habit of putting everything into thier mouths.
Also its important to choose jewelry that will survive the rigors of a child or teen’s life because usually people love to pass on those children jewelry pieces to thier generations. And the very fragile pieces may not hold up well when worn while kids are engaged in normal play. This might also suggest avoiding gemstones that are fairly soft because they may crack or break when kids are being active.

The Molly Brown Collection is one such designer range of jewellery especially for girls, created using precious metals, gemstones sourced for their colour and clarity and pearls chosen for their lustre. Each piece of jewellery is instantly recognisable through the Molly Brown Sterling Silver logo tag.

If you want to gift then all Molly Brown jewellery is gift wrapped in sumptuous brand packaging which has been beautifully designed to reflect the core values of a Molly Brown gift – quality, something to treasure and
a special keepsake.

Must Haves Innerwear For Summer 2010

Shedding all those layers of clothing from winters, now the time has come to dawn all those sexy outfits and show off your sexy silhouette. So, while you are buying all those stunning sundresses, swimsuits and hats, do not forget to shop for the appropriate lingerie items to go with all  your outfits. To beat the heat in summers, its very important to wear the right inner wear which will keep you cool and comfortable.

Some of the must haves are -


After hiding under the layers of clothing in winters, there are chances that you may have put on weight. Then hold in your tum, bum, thighs or waist using shapewear. Under any outfit, these innovative shapewear will make you look stunning and streamlined! Go for Spanx underwear by Sara Blakely, which is the best in the industry for body shaping innerwear. They have been endorsed by celebrities, like Oprah Winfrey and Miranda Lambert.


One of the other trends for this spring is innerwear as outerwear so channel this look with a lacy camisole. Be conscious of the camisole's overall sexy appeal. If the look, when put together, is very sexy, consider whether it is a daytime look or nighttime look.

Boy Shorts/Hot Pants

Hot pants in Spring & Summer 2010 are all about colours and patterns and no longer just an innerwear as long as you match it up properly. Look for a negative hemline and wear them only with heels. Heels will slim out your figure.

The Evening Look Round The Clock !!

Light yellows, oranges, aquatic teals, sea greens, black &white, ivory, pink, turquoise, magenta, silver to nudes and pastels are the colors for the hot summers. With fabrics like sheer silk organza, tulle, chiffon, chambray and airy cottons, these colors will stand out when you will wear them in the form of striking evening dresses. Match up your evening wear with the dazzling colored stones in gold, silver or platinum and you are all set for a summer evening party.
You can even wear the evening look around the clock, as per the latest trends by fashion enthusiasts who have successfully created a blur between day and evening clothes now. So, you can shine as well in the daytime.

Sequined anything has become work appropriate, or anything from a boxy tee or a racer-back tank to a tunic dress or a draped skirt, twinkling with embroidered shine can be compulsory, transposing the glitz factor. Neutrals will also be a huge trend – best worked with bags and accessories rather than entire outfits, unless you favor a tan! Fringing and embellishments will continue to be worked on hems, edging and bags / jewelry, and folk embellishments and detailing will continue to be very much in evidence.

Plus Size Fashion - Summer Beachwear Trends 2010

Summer is coming !! Time to indulge in swimming, sunbathing and playing in the water be it the sea or your own pool. And for that you need to have a proper beachwear.
Now what does proper mean? Actually proper or appropriate beachwear is based on several key factors like age, weight and skin tone. If you have a perfect slim figure then you are one of those who can go for any of the options available. But if you are someone curvy then you must take care in selecting the beachwear that may go well with your curves, making you look chic as well as comfortable. 

Plus size fashion is all the rage now. The curvy body is a very feminine body and 2010 being a year filled with feminine and stylish designs, plus size women will have more options to look chic. And there is nothing else sexier on a beach than a woman who looks perfect in the sun.

The 2010 bathing suit or beachwear trends are exquisite and designed to suit different tastes. Vintage styles have had a great influence on fashion trends of 2010 and so beachware trends have also taken inspiration from those lovely vintage times. There are also simple and moderns styles which will attract attention and will create a very sensual look. The 2010 spring summer swimsuit trends are all about style and individuality.

For plus size women, one piece bathing suits are one of the best options accenuating thier curves. Go for a monochrome or which has subtle flower prints on only one side as this will help create a slimming effect. Try to opt for darker colors as they will create a slimming effect as well.

If you want to get a more even tan, than you need to opt for a bathing suit that offers your body enough coverage. Avoid wearing thong baiting suits and opt for a bottom part which offers you enough coverage. Bottoms which gently slim on the sides work best as they will help give your legs a lengthening effect, thus a slimming effect on your body. The top bating suit part can be a halterneck or a regular shape depending what you wish for. Make sure the top part offers you the right support you need.

Jumpsuit & Playsuit For Coming Summers

Jumpsuits and playsuits in all colors from lighter tones to bright and colorful ones, will be the new hot trend in summers. Do you have one ? If not then get one of the styles for sure.
Overalls: while we saw denim overalls on the Ralph Lauren Spring/Summer 2010 catwalk, this was really an exception. We don't expect denim overalls to take off as part of this trend in 2010.

Evening: a new take on relaxed glamor, no-one has nailed this quite like Alber Elbaz for Lanvin. Single-shouldered and sequin covered jumpsuits were a striking alternative to the traditional evening dress.

Tailored: smart and sophisticated, a tailored playsuit can be office-ready as well as dressed up for day or night. Look for crisper fabrics, cuffed shorts, and cinched in waists - a la Karl Lagerfeld.

Loose and flowing: the perfect take for Spring/Summer, this look has a dash of hippy - working best when combined with soft floral prints. Fabrics should be free-flowing, legs wide and long. The likes of Roberto Cavalli and Etro produced the perfect examples.

Sporty: Julien MacDonald, Lacoste and Walter all took sportier options, in line with Spring 2010's sports trend; from hoods and zips to simple cotton jersey fabrics.

Basic: while some designers have gone for prints and intricate detailing, the likes of Stella McCartney and Givenchy presented the ideal basic options. A more versatile wardrobe staple, go for black, white or nude colours and simple straight cuts.

2010 Spring/Summer Trends - Boy Shorts/Hot Pants

With winter finally over, the time to hit the gym has come. It's this Spring or in few more months the Summer. Hemlines have crept up to shorter than short; in fact reaching the negative. Hot pants, boy shorts, and tap pants are all variations on this shorter-than-short style, which in many cases reveal more than just one's legs.

Once upon a time hot pants were considered more suited to a gymnasium than the streets. But then, in late 2007, the leotard came back into fashion. While it didn't peak on the streets until 2009, and was often worn under skirts, shorts or long furs, in the case of Kate Moss, its prevalence guaranteed that hot pants would indeed be worn by forward thinking fashioners.

And so there it was on the Spring 2010 catwalks. And again in the front row. Always on the confident personality. Always on a great figure. Those two latter parts are key to this fashion trend. It is not for the faint of heart, nor those who aren't confident about their figure.

Poonam Bhagwat's Spring Summer 2010

'A kaleidoscopic palette of abstract designs... on western silhouettes.'
Poonam Bhagwat in her Spring Summer 2010, designed for a woman who's reached the stage in life where she wants to be elegant for real, rather than playing at it, the inspiration evolved into a line of cocoon, tulip and sheath dresses, paper bag pants, jumpsuits and tunics. It was a softening up from past seasons and technically accomplished in its curvilinear lines, traced with embroideries and appliques, even as primary colors took on a vivid slant against the egg white backdrop. "It was", she said, "about trying to find a new creativity."
