  2. Best Summer Fragrances

    Best Summer Fragrances

    There's nothing quite as beautiful as the smell of Summer. This beautiful smell of saltwater and warm sand, or the smell of citrus, fresh fruits, sweet berries, long grass and your favorite blooming flower.

    The combinations are endless and are a super easy way to fill your soul with summer vibes.

     

    Before we pick up for you a collection of the best summer perfumes that you’ll need during the summer season, there are some factors to be taken into consideration.

     

    Your Body heat


    Will your body temperature matter?
    The answer is yes

     

    Your body heat is also a factor to account for. A hotter body temperature means the pay-off from your perfume will be more concentrated, and vice versa.

    Therefore, the active person has been noticed that his perfume lasts longer than a person with a sedentary lifestyle.

    During the Summer season, it is natural for us to gravitate towards sweet, floral and fresh and fruity summer perfumes, as our body temperature will increase.

    An increased body temperature combined with a smoky, intense-leathery or warm spicy perfume is surely not ideal. Instead, popular notes for the Summer include references of Marine, Citrus, White Flowers and Fresh Fruits.

  3. Summer Nailcare

    Summer Nailcare


    The best way to getting stronger, longer nails is mostly through simple lifestyle changes. Therefore, getting healthy nails also means getting rid of some bad habits, such as using your nails as a built-in pocketknife or biting your nails.

    NAILCARE TIPS:

    • Keep fingernails dry and clean.This prevents bacteria from growing under your fingernails. Repeated or prolonged contact with water can contribute to split fingernails. Wear cotton-lined rubber gloves when washing dishes, cleaning, or using harsh chemicals.
    • Moisturize Moisturize Moisturize! Moisturizing is a well-known secret to healthy skin, but it’s often overlooked in nail care. While dry, brittle nails can be the result of many factors, they’re ultimately a cry for moisture, so consider investing in a good moisturizer, make sure to rub it into the fingernails and cuticles.
    • Macaroon Anti Aging Hand Cream Rainbow Cuticle Oil Golden Jelly Hand Mask

    • Leave your cuticles alone. It’s common practice to cut, push back, or try to get rid of cuticles altogether, but cuticles are not the enemy. In fact, the cuticle is the nail’s natural protective seal. Messing with your cuticles can do far more harm than go

  4. The Importance Of Using Toners

    The Importance Of Using Toners

     

    Historically toners contained alcohol and were used as an astringent to tighten pores and balance the pH of the skin after using an alkaline soap product for cleansing.

    Now, as more cleansers tend to be pH balanced and gentle, toners have evolved to a skincare category of their own, the reformulated toners of today go beyond that basic role, they now offer a wealth of benefits and target various skin concerns—from acne, dryness to aging.

    Using a toner after cleansing the skin can help close pores and tighten cell gaps, reducing the penetration of impurities and environmental contaminants into the skin. Toners can even protect and remove chlorine and minerals present in tap water.

    Some newer formulations are even toner-serum hybrids with more substantial gel or lotion textures. Like the Codage Skin Care Water

    Other toners contain pre and probiotics to optimize the functioning of the skins microbiome, like the Perris Skin Fitness Beauty Micellar Water Make-Up Remover a 2-in-1 product that removes make-up and also tones the skin.   

    Depending on the type of toner other toners come in a spray form and can be used throughout the day, even over make-up. Like the FarmHouse Fresh Vitamin Berry Facial T

  5. The Delicate Art of Layering Fragrance

    The Delicate Art of Layering Fragrance

     

    Before we start talking about layering, we need to tackle the matter of how scents need to be aligned with the occasion and the time of the day we are wearing it for, just like there is a suitable attire for every occasion or time of the day, so is a fragrance.

     

    • How a Man can layer fragrances to be more attractive to a woman.

     

    If we are aiming for an evening fragrance, then we recommend layering more intense and sensual notes, contrary to the morning one which will be fresher and lighter.

    A very important element in layering is the family the fragrances belong to, such as Fresh, Aquatic, Oriental, Aromatic, Oud, and Wood and so on.

    The ingredients or notes as we call them of the fragrances are what determine the characteristics of the fragrance, for a day layering that smells attractive and masculine we look for notes such as Bergamot, Guaiac Wood, Musk and Vetiver, these can be mixed with aromatic ingredients like Rosemary, Mint, and Cedarwood.

    Roja Parfum Elysium Cologne Histoires de Parfums 1828

    Fragrances suitable for midday and evening will include notes such as Vetiver, Tobacco, and Oud mixed with creamier notes like Sandalwood, warm Amber, or just deep Woody fragrances.

  7. Intense Perfumes For The Night

    Intense Perfumes For The Night

    Why use a different fragrance for night time? What is the difference between a daytime and night time fragrance?

    The main difference is that daytime fragrances are much lighter. They are often worn in an office setting or when you will be in close contact with many people. Therefore they tend to be formulated with a lot of citruses, herbal smells, and light florals... Nighttime fragrances are very deep, loud, sultry, and heavier with a lingering scent.
