-For women, short hair styles such as layered hair will best keep the it from being thin. Layered hairstyle will give the hair a thicker and fuller appearance. Also clip hair at the back of the ears. That will make a "circle" look hair and will keep hair altogether in the sides, thus giving hair a full look.

Fair Toned Skin

Fair toned ladies are mostly liked and preferred by men. Although tan skin is also beautiful, I think most men prefer fair and white tones ladies (As what I've seen and observed). I am saying a fair complexion- the one with a radiant, rosy, white skin, not the corpse-like skin. Me too, I am also a fan of white skin complexion. I am also using skin products which will help lighten my skin.

Here are some things that I do:

*Every night I mix white egg and lemon juice and use it as a face mask. I've read many articles that recommends to do this. Somehow it lightened my skin.

*I use whitening soap and a whitening lotion with sun protection SPF30. This will somehow lighten the skin and protect skin from the sun's harmful UV Rays.

In some soaps, there is a certain ingredient that is said to inhibit the production of melanin. Melanin is a part of the skin which produces the brown color pigment for it. Since it produces brown pigment, it contributes in making the skin tan. Yeah, it is effective because it lightens the skin tone in only few days, maybe weeks or months. It also makes the skin "closed-pore" (like those of Korean skins! Wow!).

*I also use milk bath products. It can lighten the skin and make it softer, too.

With continuous use of those whitening products, maybe, in someway, your skin will be radiant and softer than before.

Got to go and eat my ice cream!

Goodbye Wrinkles

Wrinkles are tiny creases in the skin. We normally have this as we grow. Wrinkles appears a result of aging. It can be found around the eyes, on the forehead, near the nose and lips. In some way, I know all of us wants to prevent wrinkles from appearing in our faces! Yes, we want to prevent wrinkles! What can we do about it?

Here are some advices:

* Since sun is the major cause of skin aging, apply sunscreen lotion to your body and face daily. Also wear sunglasses to protect the eyes from the sun's radiance.

* Avoid smoking. According to researchers, smoke causes reduction in the production of new collagen. Lack of new collagen results in wrinkles.

* Avoid rubbing skin too much. Stretched skin cause wrinkles. Rub your skin gently.

For a facial treatment, stores sell anti aging creams and anti wrinkle creams which can reduce the appearance of wrinkles. But I can surely say that dermatologists know the best solution in removing wrinkles. Botox is one example.

I have tried one treatment for wrinkles. I am still new to it. I bought it at the mall. I also apply a vegetable, Pipino, on my eyes and skin. I believe that it helps in reducing dark circles under the eyes. It also helps in soothing and softening the skin.

One of my friend also told me that oat is good for the skin. Just mix it with milk and water and use it as a facial wash or body wash.

Wow Wow Wigs!

Let's bring back the history of wigs.

According to what I've read from an Internet source, wigs were first worn in the ancient times in Egypt. It is commonly used by French people. Wigs are made of human hair or sometimes, horses and goats' hair. They wore it as a form of dress and as a part of their traditional costumes. They wore wigs to shield their bald and hairless heads from the heat of the sun and also to improve their personal appearance. Men, like King Louis XIII and King Louis XIV of France wore long wigs. As what I've observed here in Philippines, bald men usually use short haired wigs while women use long or short haired wigs.

Many kinds of people use wigs. They are the:

* Kings and Queens. Wigs indicates their status and role in society or politics. Wigs are adorned with braids, gold, hair rings, and ivory ornaments. The more ornamented the wig was, the higher the social rank and status.

* Actors and Actresses. They wear wigs to portray their characters more effectively.

* Sick People. Cancer patients, radiation treated & chemo "therapied" patients suffer from extreme hair loss. They use wigs to hide bald heads.

* Fashion People. They use wigs to be more fashionable and stylish.

Some people wear it just for fun like in costume parties and Halloween events, in malls. Sometimes they just like wearing it. I know someone who wears wig while eating pizza. Just joking!

There are so many wig colors and styles that we can choose from. Some are curly, straight, black, blonde. It depends upon us on what ideal wig will improve our appearance. Wow! Wigs are very useful.
