Beauty Tips for Tired-Looking Women


Women all want to look fresh and beautiful but sometimes we experience stress and we do not get enough sleep so we end up looking like a flesh eating zombie. Here are some useful beauty tips from Singapore beauty experts that you could try to have a well-rested skin and glowing beauty amidst the stress and problems you are facing every day.

  1. Give your eyes the proper attention. Our eyes are the windows of our soul. To add, they will not hide the fact that you haven’t had enough rest. In order to reduce the puffiness in your eyes, you can press two cold/frozen spoons against your lids and eyebags. This will be best if done in the morning after taking a bath.


  1. Moisturize and protect your skin. If you want that I-slept-for-eight-hours look, then you should certainly need to moisturize your skin. Use a moisturizer that your skin likes and stick with it. In order to protect your skin from the harsh sunlight and avoid sunburn, use a reliable sun screen.


  1. Use a face mask. To wake up and soothe your tired skin, you can use face masks that are infused with cucumber extracts or other natural refreshing products.


  1. Illuminate your face with the right make-up. You need to find the right foundation that is not matte and has a soft dewy finish in order to lighten and even out your skin tone. You must also add a punch of color to your cheeks by using warm hues instead of the usual pink. These are the products you should use in order to avoid looking pale.

  1. Use the right lipstick. When we are tired and not in the mood to play around with our face, we tend to use bold lip colors. The problem with that is we look more haggard while wearing it since it will draw attention to our tired eyes. You can use peach and nude lipsticks, something light yet a great match for your complexion.


  1. Appreciating the value of face mist. You can never go wrong in using a face mist. It does not only serve as a make-up setting spray but it also helps in making your face look flawless.


  1. Hydrate yourself. The need to hydrate ourselves should really be given emphasis. To refresh our skin from the inside, we need to drink plenty of water and avoid drinks that are rich in caffeine and sugar since they can contribute in skin inflammation.


  1. Improve your sleeping habit. When you are tired, it really shows in your skin. If you have deadlines at work or if you party all night then most probably you won’t get enough sleep. In order to avoid being tired looking, you should at least get 6-8 hours of sleep a day. From time to time, you should make sure to ditch your party plans and work on your deadlines ahead in order to get a good night sleep.

What Is Damaged Hair?


Beautiful, stylish hair has become a fashion statement. It’s not surprising that hair coloring and other treatments are so popular even when there are risks. Damaged hair can reduce confidence, especially for women.

Here is what you need to know to keep your crowning glory healthy and shiny.


Habits that Damage Your Hair


  1. Using the blow dryer too often can damage the cuticles that protect your hair. The same is true for ironing.


  1. Using hot water when washing can cause damage much like using blow dryers.


  1. Excessive use of chemicals like gels and hair sprays as well as hair coloring, relaxing, rebonding, and keratin treatments all cause damage.


  1. Thinning hair can be caused by changes in our body or lifestyle like dieting, menopause, medication, and stress.


What Damaged Hair is Like


  1. We lose an average of 100 strands per day. Excessive hair loss can be caused by bad habits or it can be genetic or a symptom of a disease. Hair loss occurs when strands fall out whenever you brush. Bald spots, usually on the top of the head, could appear or a receding hairline.


  1. Brittle hair that breaks is a sign that it’s damaged. Whenever you comb your hair, a lot of strands come off or break. Split ends mean that the hair cuticle is damaged. The outer layer peels back as a result.


  1. Dull and dry hair means it lacks moisture and oil. Both of these are supposed to help keep you hair looking shiny and healthy. Greasy hair is likewise unhealthy. It will also make your hair look dull and may even cause dandruff.


  1. The natural color fades and the strands look and feel rough. Damaged hair also tangles easily and is difficult to manage when wet.


Treatment of Damaged Hair


  1. Proper diet and hair management can help treat damaged hair. Food rich in Omega-3 moisturizes hair.


  1. Use mild shampoo and conditioner. You can use natural remedies and hair masks such as aloe vera, avocado, coconut, egg and olive oil.


  1. Use the blow dryer sparingly. Even better, let your hair dry naturally.


  1. If you have long hair, it may be time for you to get a trim. Split ends cannot be glued together no matter what the products claim.


  1. Avoid hair coloring, relaxing and other procedures for now, and let your hair down once in a while.


Avoiding Damaged Hair


  1. Avoid using shampoo with sulfates and don’t change your product too often. Check the labels of all your hair products.


  1. Keep all your tools like comb or brush, blow dryer, curling and flat iron clean.


  1. Don’t brush your hair while it’s still wet. If you need to blow dry, set it to the coolest temperature.


  1. Avoid tight hairstyles that are too tight.


  1. Swimming pools also damage hair because they contain chlorinated water. Avoid spending too much time soaking in the pool.


  1. It’s better to have one regular stylist to go to. Remind them of hair treatments done recently.

Getting a Haircut


A trip to the salon can improve your looks and add self-confidence. But if you fail to get the result you wanted, you’ll feel miserable. Hair could take a while to grow back after all. Here are tips to help you get the most out of it.


For Women

Talk to your stylist about your lifestyle. Your hair needs to be appropriate for your work or school and the time you’ll spend styling it whenever you go out. Don’t go for hairstyles that need a lot of maintenance if you can’t manage it.

Determine your hair’s texture. If you have curly hair, make sure that the stylist has prior experience with your hair type.

Knowing your face shape will help you decide the right haircut to get. Some stylists can give you advice, so don’t hesitate to ask if you need an opinion but you still have the final say. Pick a style that complements or accentuates your face shape.

By the time you get to the salon, you should already have an idea what haircut to get.

Lastly, ask yourself if you’re ready for a new haircut. Regretting it later won’t make your hair grow faster. Bring a photo of the hairstyle you want. It’s better if you already know the stylist so you’d feel more comfortable talking.


For Men

Don’t be shy to give clear instructions. When you get to the barber, you should have a general idea of the kind of look you want. When deciding consider your lifestyle and hair texture. You can’t wear a mohawk if your company’s dress code doesn’t allow it.

Be specific with how much you want to be trimmed off. Make sure you know how your arches, bangs, neckline, sideburns and the taper will look.


Arches is the space between your ears and hairline. You can have it shaped naturally or high. Some men might want bangs. Tell the barber how you want it to look. The neckline refers to how the hair on your nape will look like. It can be blocked, tapered or rounded. Decide how thin or how long your sideburns will look. Taper or fade is the gradual change of the hair length from the top of your head to the neck. If you don’t want a taper, tell the barber that you want to keep the same length.

Some salons might also ask if you want a shave.


For Children

Some parents give their babies haircut. If this isn’t possible, there are salons with hair stylists specializing in children’s haircut.

Before going to the salon, make sure the child understands what will happen when he/she gets a haircut.

Make the experience comfortable and fun for the child. Let him/her pick the hairstyle. Or give him/her a reward after the trim.

Distract the child if he/she starts fidgeting. He/she should be relaxed and behaved, and not fearful.
