Did seeing your own face on screen during a videoconference send you into shock? You are not alone – when lockdown forced us all to talk to one another online, many of us were shocked at what we saw: lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin that make us look older than we really are. The computer screen and artificial light seem to work in tandem to make every small line and blemish really stand out during a Zoom call; caking on makeup or trying to hide your face just makes it all worse.

Damage can cause your skin to lose its natural, youthful appeal. Damage from sun exposure, free radicals, smoking cigarettes, and other irritants can cause the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, creases and sagging skin. Fortunately, you can take a methodical approach to restoring, nourishing, and strengthening your damaged skin.
Healthy eyelashes improve the appearance of your eyes, but getting long, luscious lashes is not always easy – mascara is messy, false eyelashes are finicky, and eyelash curlers are simply torture! Furthermore, wearing mascara or false eyelashes are not always an option. Fortunately, you can grow your own thick, gorgeous lashes that never need heavy makeup, scary curlers or falsies that can fall off in the blink of an eye.
Growing beautiful eyelashes, or protecting the eyelashes you already have, is easier than you might think.
A good skincare routine is important to the health and aesthetic appeal of your skin, for a variety of reasons. Your skincare routine contributes to beautiful skin today and healthy-looking skin 30 years from now.
Facial waxing removes unwanted hair from your face, leaving your skin looking smoother and softer. Here are six things you should know about facial waxing.
- Unlike shaving, which cuts off hair at the surface of the skin, waxing removes the facial hair right from its root. As it grows back in, waxed hair is smooth and stubble-free. Shaved hair, by comparison, grows back stiff and stubbly.
- Waxing does not hurt the skin of most people. If you have very sensitive skin, or you are prone to breakouts, opt for professional waxing treatments.
