Tips to Look Your Best for Prom

Prevent An Updo Meltdown

Keep a hidden mini can of hairspray and a few bobby pins in reach at all times during the special night. When your hair feels like it’s about to fall, spray the bobby pin with hairspray and tuck it into your updo. This will hold the pin strong enough to last you those next few special hours of the night!

Apply Under Eye Concealer In The Shape Of A Triangle.

With prom being stressful enough as it is, keeping you up day and night before the big dance, you want to look your best! Make sure you cover up the stressful eye bags by applying your concealer in the shape of a triangle, base under the eye, and tip toward the cheek.

Can’t Sleep at Night? Here Are Some Tips on Lookin’ Good after Beauty Sleep!

Beauty sleep is not a myth and sleep does lessen the severity of wrinkles in the face and neck, at least temporarily. The body cools in anticipation of bed time (about half a degree) and to do so, the circulatory system increases blood flow to the skin. This is why the cheeks often flush at night.

What does it mean to be “radiant”? It generally means the color of the skin moves closer to the color of blood. A radiator in a house or car movers hot liquid around to distribute heat, and so does the circulatory system move warm blood around and skin tone changes to affect body temperature. This is why some people appear more radiant just before bedtime or during sleep.

Early in the nighttime sleep cycle, people typically have a surge in growth hormone. This period of deep sleep contributes to what people call “beauty sleep” as secretion of growth hormone helps repair and rebuild body tissues like muscle and bone. Many of the body’s tissues also show increased cell production and slower breakdown of proteins during deep sleep. Since proteins are the building blocks needed for cell growth and for the repair of damage from factors like stress and ultraviolet rays, deep sleep is true “beauty sleep.”

Tip 1: Hydration

Sleep does lessen the severity of wrinkles in the neck and face, at least temporarily. Some smoothing is due to position – lying down diverts the force of gravity. But there’s more to beauty sleep than that – otherwise just lying down to rest in the middle of the day would have the same effect. During sleep, the whole body, including the face, perspires more. This moisture on the skin smooths out wrinkles. Some cosmetics make your face looks better by making the skin moister. Sleep is a natural moisturizer – perspiration during sleep is a natural skin treatment. Make sure to drink 8 cups of water during the day and moisturize before going to bed!

Tip 2: Use a moisturizing face mask before bed

Apply a pre-cooled face mask during your night routine to get more moisture on your face. You will feel incredibly relaxed before bed! A favorite is the Lush Cosmetics Beauty Sleep Face Mask! At Lookin’ Good Salon, we do have in-house face masks that we apply to your face during your session if you request one and it leaves your skin looking youthful and glowing!

Tip 3: Get better sleep in general

  1. Reduce blue light exposure in the evening by putting away your electronics at least an hour before sleeping.
  2. Don’t consume any caffeine at least 2 hours before sleeping.
  3. Reduce long daytime naps.
  4. Get as much sunlight as you can during the day.

Is Rice Water the Secret to Extreme Hair Growth?

Rice isn’t the first item to come to mind when you think of hair growth, we know. Surprisingly, the trend is to put rice water in your hair and experience amazing hair growth and shine. Let’s look deeper!

Rice has amazing amino acids, anti-oxidants, and vitamins B and E. People say that due to these properties, rice water detangles your hair, leaves your hair silky and shiny, and strengthens your hair. Rice water is also claimed to stimulate new hair growth! These are all claims, though.

The trend seems to have started when news of the Yao women of China and their long floor-length hair went viral.

Yao Women from China

A 2010 paper reported findings that continued use of rice water in your hair contributes to increased hair elasticity, so we know these claims are not all that unsubstantiated. We recognize that more research needs to be done on the topic.

Here’s a recipe for the rice water hair treatment! The Yao add grapefruit peels to the rice water as well. Add essential oil to the concoction if you can too! We love eucalyptus oil. This rice, water, and grapefruit peel mixture needs to be left sitting for one week. According to the Yao, the mixture must be fermented like that in order to be effective. Fermenting the mixture causes the pH of the mixture to decrease so that it is healthier for your hair follicles.

  1. Wash 1 part rice 2 times and then add 2 parts water to the washed rice.
  2. cut some grapefruit peels into the rice water mixture.
  3. Store the mixture in a air tight mason jar and let sit for a week.
  4. Let the mixture sit on your roots for 20 minutes before rinsing out.

It’s that simple. The Yao claim to use this instead of shampoo, but we recommend using a very gentle shampoo in addition to this rice water treatment. The shampoo should be extremely delicate with the hair in order to just get rid of the oils in your hair and not damage anything!

Is the Cold Air Drying Out Your Skin? Here’s What You Need to Know About Moisturizers!

Firstly, you need to know some things about skin care when it comes to keeping your skin dewy in winter time.

  1. Don’t over-exfoliate. Let some of those natural oils keep your skin moisturized.
  2. Hydrate from the inside out! Drink water, 8 cups a day.
  3. Apply coconut oil to any dry patches of skin.
  4. Invest in a humidifier.
  5. Go to sleep with vaseline or petroleum jelly of your choice on your lips.

You should have different moisturizers for the summer time vs the winter time. In the winter time, it’s best to use a thicker lotion to combat the dry air. Make sure to also have sunscreen into your routine because the sun’s UV rays still hit your skin even on cold, cloudy days.

People say that a toner spray is their life saver in the winter time! Just spray your face several times during the day or whenever you need an extra boost of moisture on your face! Here’s a list of some great moisturizers for the winter time:

  • Cetaphil Moisturizing Cream
  • Neutrogena Hydro Boost
  • Aquaphor Healing Ointment
  • CeraVe Moisturizing Cream
  • La Roche-Posay Lipikar Balm AP +
  • Vichy Aqualia Thermal Rich Cream Face Moisturizer with Hyaluronic Acid.
  • Vanicream Moisturizing Skin Cream.

Capricorns are focused and known to take action. They may seem stubborn to some but once you get to know a Capricorn, you’ll soon learn they are loyal and loving. As Capricorns are head-strong and make their decisions with no hesitation. For capricorns, impulsive bangs are a go!

Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)

The humanitarian and rebel at heart, the Aquarius is known to be free-spirited and eccentric. Playful and always in style, long beachy waves are the perfect zodiac hairstyle for the sun and water loving Aquarius. Fun fact, Aquarius is an air sign, despite ‘aqua’ in the name.

Pisces (February 19 – March 20)

The last constellation of the zodiac, the Pisces is empathetic, compassionate, and sensitive. Pisces may be softies, and we mean that in the most loving way possible, but they are also wise. Being the last sign of the zodiac, it’s said they have experienced and seen what all other signs have also. A feathered, soft-layered look with curtain bangs best matches all of the common traits for our Pisces. Whether short or long, a feathered or shaggy hairstyle for the new year will work swimmingly for the Pisces this new year.
