2015 -2016 Beauty Empties #5 (hair )

.......More from the beauty empties project, this time from the hair style and care department. Like I said in my previous post, some of these products I finished in 2015 and some at the beginning of 2016. I had to mention this because someone of Instagram asked me when did I finished all of these.

So, this is what I have used for my hair in the past months !

1. Wellaflex Hairspray for Volume, 400 ml.

All About Facial Massage

Like the rest of your body, your face has many muscles, and like your shoulders or back, it gets tight and holds on to stress.

As we age, our skin loses the ability to replenish lost cells, which results in sagging skin and wrinkles. While a set of anti-ageing moisturizers is a good place to start when you notice the first signs of fine lines, a facial massage will really get your skin back to it's beautiful best.

So here are the facial muscles... of topic but very helpful, right under the Zygomaticus muscle you apply blush /contour products. There is the correct place to put your blush.
A massage stimulates the muscles and lymphatic system. Every area of the body responds to facial massage. We have 300 pressure points on the face, which relate to every part of the body, so when you have a good face massage you impact every organ. It makes the face glow and takes the tiredness and sluggishness away.

In other words a facial massage is like coffee for the skin. Most of us do the facial massage wrong, with circular motions.

Massaging your face in circular motions only drags at the skin without working the muscles at all. Your facial muscles are actually arranged diagonally in line with your cheekbones (see the imagine above), so long, diagonal strokes upwards will engage with them and tighten up skin.

Thought you had to massage the neck upwards? Wrong, it's actually downwards to get rid of excess fluid being held there....... To my surprise a lot of trained personal from spa and beauty salons does all these things wrong. I am going to explain a little bit how it works and what are the benefits, how to do it by yourself at home and why you should implement facial massage in your skin care routine, starting with today .

2015 -2016 Beauty Empties #4 ( body )

Some of these empties are finished in 2015 and just a small part in 2016. I had again few plastic bags full of empty junk ; and here is just the body section. Let's see what I have been loving and what did not worked out so great for me.

1. Kneipp Almond-Argan Shower 0il, 200 ml. Such a luxurious spa every time with everything from Kneipp. Soap-free, paraben -free, 70% natural ingredients, without mineral oil and so gentle with my dry skin. It smells delicious, leaves skin clean, smooth and soft. In my opinion Kneipp has the best bath products, similar to Rituals but more affordable and for shower I do prefer Kneipp over Rituals. I won't let go this product and I will always repurchase it.

2. Kneipp Sugar Body Scrub, Argan Oil and Fig, 200ml. Probably my favorite scrub, it smells amazing and leaves the skin super soft and with a special glow. Great product with very good ingredients. Loved it and I will repurchase it.

Red Carpet Beauty Look

Red lipstick is often the best choice and also the association for strong, successful, stylish and glamorous woman.

 With red lips you can go bold, you can go retro glam, girly, vampy, edgy, classic and never boring or wrong.
 Using a couple of products, I have made this really easy and pretty Red Carpet Look, also perfect for a hot and romantic date on Valentines Day.

5 Favorite Face Masks

Face masks are one of my favorite skin care products and they are the perfect treatments to help you with your skin problems and concerns. The right face masks can help remove excess of oils, improve and detoxify your pores, hydrate the skin. They are also an excellent way of removing skin impurities, relaxing, give  healthy glow to the skin and a wonderful feeling of being pampered.
Everyone should introduce facial masks to their skin care routine, both men and women can benefit and improve their skin condition from using a facial mask.

 By using facial masks on a regular base, you can ensure that your other skin care products (lotions, serums, nighttime creams ) will be absorbed by your skin quicker and deeper and your skin will be more toned, more hydrated and protected. 
 Just one type of mask is not enough, because skin is never the same and it would be great if you have more than a basic clay mask. 

I’ve put together this convenient list of 5 face masks and some tips that will help you soak in all the benefits a face mask can offer.

 Here are 5 of my favorite facial masks.
