It’s usually gradual and you don’t notice it right away but suddenly your hair feels a lot thinner. You may even start to notice bald spots or a receding hairline. Whatever type of hair loss you’re experiencing, it can be devastating to deal with. However, you don’t just have to sit back and take it! There are proven methods out there that can help. Keep reading below and we’ll tell you the top 6 tips to reduce and stop hair loss. What Causes Hair Loss?Before we continue, it’s important to note that there are many different reasons people can start losing their hair. This can include pregnancy, childbirth, thyroid problems, alopecia, stress, aging, and certain medications. Since there can be a wide variety of medical issues that can cause hair loss, it’s important to talk to your doctor or healthcare professional about your symptoms. Sometimes something as simple as a change in medication can fix the issue. If you’ve already talked to your doctor and there is not an underlying issue or medication causing the problem, don’t worry! There are still steps you can take to both reduce and stop hair loss. Check out the top 6 tips below.6 Tips to Reduce and Stop Hair LossThere are a lot of products on the market that claim to reduce and stop hair loss but do they really work? Don’t waste your time or money on hair loss products that promise results without the science to back it up. Use one of these 6 scientifically proven methods below.1. Use BiotinBiotin, also known as vitamin H, is a B complex vitamin that is involved in a wide variety of metabolic processes in the body. It is especially useful in keeping your skin and hair healthy. Research has shown that people with thinning hair who took biotin saw positive results. In another study, women with hair loss took a supplement with biotin as the primary ingredient. After a 90-day follow up, the women reported improvements in overall hair volume, scalp coverage, and hair thickness. After 180 days, additional improvements were reported such as increased hair shine, skin moisture, and skin smoothness.2. Take a Daily MultivitaminEven if you have a really good diet, it may be possible your body is not getting all of the nutrients it needs. Research has shown that vitamins A, B, C, D, E, as well as iron, selenium, and zinc, are all essential for proper hair growth. They also help with cell turnover (shedding dead skin cells and replacing them with younger cells) which can help with hair regrowth.3. Add More Vitamin DIt may seem redundant to talk about vitamin D when we just discussed a multivitamin above. However, most American’s are deficient in vitamin D and a once-daily multivitamin might not be enough to fix it. You can talk to your doctor about having your levels tested. Many people take a vitamin D supplement on top of a daily multivitamin to help correct this issue. Why is vitamin D so important? It is an essential nutrient for many processes in the body. Besides that, studies have shown that vitamin D can actually help promote hair regrowth even in the case of androgenic alopecia (also known as male or female pattern baldness).4. Update Your DietIt’s not what you’re eating but rather what you’re not eating. Research has shown that a diet rich in raw vegetables and fresh herbs can actually slow the onset of androgenic alopecia and even reduce the risk of getting it all together. Those who experienced the best results consumed leafy greens and herbs like arugula, basil, kale, and parsley at least three times a week. Foods high in vitamin A like spinach and sweet potatoes have also been shown to increase hair growth. Besides raw vegetables and fresh herbs, you should also look to increase the amount of healthy protein you eat. Several studies have discovered amino acid and micronutrient deficiencies in participants with hair loss. Amino acids are the building blocks of protein. Therefore, it is believed that a diet rich in healthy proteins might prevent hair loss. Add foods to your diet like nuts, eggs, fish, and beans to increase your protein intake.5. Take Care of Your HairTaking care of your hair is as about as easy as it sounds. However, there are some tips that can help reduce and stop hair loss you might not know about. For example, regular washing is good but not washing too much and using a mild shampoo are key. Another good tip is to not chemically treat your hair such as bleaching it or using chemical relaxers. American Academy of Dermatology suggests that you wash your hair with a mild shampoo, use conditioner every wash, let your hair air dry naturally, and avoid using heating elements like a blow dryer or a curling iron. If you do use them, limit them to once a week. They also suggest you not continually wear tight braids, cornrows, hair extensions, or ponytails.6. Practice Yoga or MeditationStress can be a major contributing factor to hair loss and thinning. Therefore, in order to help reduce and stop hair loss, we should work to reduce our levels of stress. While we know that sounds easier said than done, making simple additions to your weekly routine can really help. There are hundreds of research studies out there confirming that both yoga and mindfulness meditation can improve your overall happiness while reducing stress levels. It can also help lower your blood pressure, boost your immune system, and reduce depression and anxiety.Reduce and Stop Hair Loss by Combining MethodsThe best to stop and reduce hair loss is by using a combination of the methods above. You should talk to your doctor before beginning any new health or exercise regimens. We recommend taking a daily multivitamin, biotin, and vitamin D supplement. You should also try to add more leafy greens, healthy proteins, raw vegetables, and fresh herbs to your diet. Finally, make sure to take care of your hair and yourself! Regular washing with gentle styling methods mixed with some yoga and/or mindfulness meditation. The right mixture of optimal health can help reduce and stop hair loss.

Why hello there! I’m continuing on my how to tutorials. I really like this series breaking down all makeup trends and putting up how to tutorials for all makeup artist levels for makeup trends. Continuing on the wing liner, I used a liquid liner for my wing tutorial which is what I normally do. But liquid liners are not very beginner friendly. So this tutorial will teach you how to create an intense wing liner using a matte black eyeshadow. So check out the tutorial above to see how I achieve a wing liner using eyeshadow. Next tutorial will be the last of the wing liners.

ACNE, DULL, DRY or PREMATURE skin? Find out why!
🔶 Okay, so we’ve all heard or read about pH balanced products and products that rebuild the acid mantle...but I think a lot of us don’t know why it is SO important to keep the pH level of your skin BALANCED and your acid mantle UNCOMPROMISED! ❌ Generally, skin that isn't behaving can be traced to pH problems. Skin issues like eczema, redness, dry patches, acne, oiliness, psoriasis, and premature signs of aging all indicate that your skin's pH is off-balance! This is how IMPORTANT this topic truly is 😳 🔸 So, WHY is the pH balance important to skin? Any great deviation—either too high of a pH or too low—throws off the “ecosystem” of skin and causes inflammation and irritation when the natural oils and natural bacteria on the skin are disrupted. (Aka: your acid mantle has now been compromised due to this) ⭐️ If you are suffering from any of the above issues, perhaps you need to take a step back and really look into the routine you have in place currently, for morning and night. ⭐️The pH of your cleansers are very important because something that is high pH, 9 and above, can be too drying and stripping for your skin. And your cleanser is your first step of your skincare routine. So you don’t want to start it off by using a cleanser with a pH level lower or higher than ***4.5-5.5.*** When your acid mantle and skin barrier are compromised, it can lead to BAD bacteria, which causes ACNE and dehydration, which ultimately leads to WRINKLES!😱🛑 🔸Tiffany Masterson, the owner and creator of Drunk Elephant is an absolute master when it comes to knowing how to Properly care for your skin. “The acid mantle just so happens to protect skin from environmental factors that lead to aging and all-around irritation,” she says. So, she made sure that ALL of their products are pH balanced to perfection 🙌🏻 - if you’re having bad acne I REALLY suggest taking a “Clean Break” - and switching your routine to a short yet VERY effective routine using Drunk Elephant products. All of their products from head to toe are pH balanced so I promise you can’t go wrong with their products! ✅ But now that this topic has become so popular in the beauty world, there are TONS of other amazing brands that have created pH balanced products to help aid with these skin issues as well. But if you ask me, I think Tiffany started the trend 😉🐘💕✨ 🔸Here are some other REALLY GREAT pH Focused Products from other brands: ▪️Tula’s Pro-Glycolic 10 percent pH resurfacing gel ▪️La Roche-Posay made a device called “My Skin Track”: a prototype of a wearable sensor that detects trace amounts of sweat from your pores and promises an accurate skin pH reading in just 15 minutes. ▪️Brands like Cosrx and Acwell are K-Beauty brands thus they tend to make most of their products with a low pH level that is gentle on the skin and won’t cause any extra irritation. So if you’re having any of the above issues, check your products pH levels😊 - hope this helps some of you! 💋
are pore bubbling masks worth it? 🧼🛁💬
since COVID has started, I know many people are on new (or refining old) skincare journeys and I’ve recently been experiencing some dryness/dehydrating as the winter rolls around, which also aggravates my already oily skin. I’ve worked in the beauty industry for a while and also was formerly an esthetician, so I can get picky with skincare and ingredients. ‼️for reference, my skin type is: combo (oily/dehydrated), formerly acneic, hyperpigmentation prone, and sensitive 🔬I’ve used Dr. Jart in the past and love that it’s a Korean, science-backed brand so I was stoked to try this Porecting Solution Mask! this mask promises fresh, clear glowing skin that deeply cleanses and purifies pores. the mask contains charcoal and saponine, which creates the bubbling effect you see in the above photo. this product does not contain sulfates, paragons, are phthalates. 🛁when I first took it out of its package, I thought there were *two* masks per package instead of one, but if you read the instructions, there’s actually a “mask film” on the actual mask itself that you’re supposed to remove, so make sure to do that! the actual mask is thick and full of product while the mask film is thinner and lighter in color. the directions also give you a tip to massage the mask to release the bubbling/foaming effect - I did this mask with my mom at the same time in separate rooms and she totally didn’t read the instructions so her mask didn’t bubble at all, so I would suggest to definitely massage the mask. 💬I left it on for 20 minutes and it continued to bubble about 5-10 minutes in, then stopped bubbling. you can hear the bubbles pop as the mask sits on your face, which is kinda weird but cool. the mask didn’t slip off AT ALL which is also a huge, even when I put a sweatshirt on over my head. after taking it off, the serum took about another 10 minutes to soak into my skin and my face felt super smooth and my pores looked tighter and more clean. I have a few sebaceous filaments on my nose that I sometimes pick at and as I was rubbing the serum into my skin, I saw that some of the sebaceous filaments on my nose were sloughing off (which is gross, but speaks to how well the product worked)! overall, I would definitely recommend and use this again! if you have oily skin or otherwise clogged pores, sebaceous filaments, blackheads, etc. I would suggest this for you. even if you have dry/normal skin, this would be a good option since my skin didn’t feel dried out at all afterward, even in my dry spell now, and felt rather hydrated and plump. five stars! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Trying to find the culprit... HELP!
Ever since I’ve added these two new products, I’ve noticed a couple new breakouts in places i’ve never experienced!!! They are red painful pimples too. Two on my forehead (I never get them there) , one on the outside of my nostril (i never get them there either), and the weirdest singular pimple on my NECK! Both of these products I have used on my face and neck, however, I’m not sure what product or ingredient is causing the sudden breakout!! Or is it just purging??? Help!!!!!! Did anyone else experience this with these products??? COSRX - Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence Murad - Nutrient-Charged Water Gel
Cleanse your skin like a pro
Cleansing is the first step of any skin regime, and it's essential to your skin's health that it is done correctly. Cleansing the skin removes makeup, sunscreen, and impurities/pollution built up from the day. Always use a Ph balanced cleanser to avoid compromising your skin's barrier. I generally switch out my gel cleanser for milk or balm in the winter months as my skin becomes drier. I find milk or balms more hydrating and soothing for the skin. My go-to right now is BIOLOGIQUE RECHERCHE - Lait Vip O2 Oxygenating Milk Cleanser paired with either the mini glove Biologique Recherche or the Luna Cleaning tool FOREO - LUNA Mini 2 Facial Cleansing Brush Fuchsia to aid deeper cleaning and increase blood circulation while massaging the skin. Try not to skip cleansing at night no matter how sleepy you are, sleeping with your makeup on goes far beyond clogged pores. Sleeping with your makeup on in the long term will prematurely age your skin due to the breakdown of collagen from environmental pollutants left on the skin. Always cleanse your skin twice at night. Double cleansing is key in removing makeup and sunscreen effectively. Makeup and sunscreen are designed to stick to the skin, and one cleanse just not going to cut it. Use colder water, never hot water to cleanse your skin. Heat is not your skin's friend; it can cause tewl (transepidermal water loss), lead to irritation, dehydration and sensitivity. Avoid cleansing the skin in the shower, the water is generally too hot, and the shower's pressure can lead to burst vessels. Pat dry, do not aggressively rub your skin with a towel - I hear too many times people rub their skin aggressively with a dry face cloth to exfoliate the skin - stop it. Be gentle with your skin; there are better ways to exfoliate your skin - trust me. Which moves me on to P50 lotions BIOLOGIQUE RECHERCHE - LOTION P50 PIGM 400 Follow your cleansing routine with the correct P50 lotion for your skin type. P50 lotion is a gentle but effective way to exfoliate, hydrate the skin while maintaining the skin's Ph and respecting its barrier function. My go-to P50 right now is Pig400 which also targets hyperpigmentation concerns.
