If you're eager to grow a glorious beard, it's hard to accept that it simply takes time. In reality, your genetic profile is the most important (and unchangeable) factor in how fast your beard will grow. There are things you can do to potentially speed up the process a bit, though. Take care of your beard as it grows, follow a beard-healthy lifestyle, and talk to your doctor if your beard needs additional help. And, above all, be patient!
1 Be patient and let your facial hair grow. Your genetic profile is the primary factor in how quickly (and how fully) your beard grows, and there’s not much you can do about that. While you can take measures to support the process, you should also accept that your beard will grow in its own way and at its own pace.

Common sense tells us that a leafy green salad is probably better fuel for your body than a plate of greasy French fries. But the foods you eat also have a huge impact on your skin’s health and complexion. Get the most out of your food with the easy diet tips below to maintain vibrant, youthful-looking skin.
Good Eats for Your Skin:
Citrus, Fruits, and Peppers
These foods are loaded with vitamin C, an antioxidant that helps protect skin against surface free radicals. Surface free radicals, generated from UV rays and environmental pollutants, eventually cause wrinkles and a loss of skin firmness.
Salmon, Eggs, and Dairy
These foods are good sources of vitamin D, a nutrient that helps the body absorb calcium for strong bones. And bone loss can contribute to sagging skin. Salmon is also hig
Before we start with this article, I would like to ask you a few simple questions:
Do you have trouble sleeping?
Do you have brittle nails?
Are you experiencing hair loss?
Ladies and gentlemen, if you answered YES to the questions above, chances are there is a disruption of your adrenal glands. Do you know what are adrenal glands? Adrenal glans are endocrine glands that are found at the top of each of our kidneys. According to the experts, their function is to produce many hormones including adrenaline and steroids.
These hormones help regulate metabolism, the immune system, our blood pressure and help the body deal with stress. As you can see, any dysfunction in our adrenal glands can cause a lot of health issues. But, you shouldn’t be worried because there is a fast, simpl
I’ve been in a war against blackheads since I first discovered Bioré pore strips back in high school. Seeing that black gunk is just so satisfying! According to facialist Cecilia Wong from Cecilia Wong Skincare in New York City, those tiny dots are a sign you need to treat your skin ASAP. “A blackhead is a clump of oil and dirt mixed together in a pore,” she tells SELF. “If you don’t take care of your pores, eventually the dirt and oil will accumulate. If someone has a lot of blackheads (or open comedones), you can feel it—the skin is rough, scratchy, and bumpy."
More bad news: Dirty pores can also mean reduced skin elasticity in the future. “A pore is like a rubber band—the more you stretch it out, the less elasticity it has,” Wong says. “Once your pores are stretched out to a certain de
Perfectly shaped eyebrows highlight one's face and personality. We all are aware of how bold eyebrows have become a rage, and yet not too long back, pencil-thin eyebrows dominated the style industry. Now thicker eyebrows are back in trend. In fact, you can see women sporting them on the silver screens and fashion runways. Eyebrows are one of the most noticeable parts of one's face, the thicker they are, more beautiful you look. But not all of us can lay a natural claim to thick eyebrows. Some of us have sparse and scanty eyebrows, and we are always scouting for remedies to make them thicker. Though there isn’t a magic tip to bring back your eyebrow hair overnight, but there are certain things that can enhance the process. And for this, nothing can work better than natural remedies.
Do you know what causes hair loss? The experts say that hair loss is related to various factors as stress, pregnancy, menopause, weight loss, etc.
But, also other reasons can speed up and promote the hair loss. Stress can cause a hormonal imbalance and lead to excessive hair loss.
This issue can make you insecure and withdrawn and affect your self-esteem. You will spend a lot of money on expensive hair products and treatments which will not always give the best results.
We present you a homemade shampoo which can help you to solve this problem.
HOW TO MAKE MY OWN HOMEMADE SHAMPOO FOR HAIR LOSS?

Every female has a natural vaginal scent that can change throughout her menstrual cycle. A strong odor however, can be a sign of an infection, particularly if she is sexually active. Certain sexually transmitted infections (STI’s) such as trichomoniasis can cause a different odor. A woman’s vagina is naturally filled with bacteria but when there is an overgrowth, the condition is called bacterial vaginosis and causes a “fishy” odor.
The female gender is one who cares a lot about his physical condition and is very careful about themselves. However, women not only face aesthetic and beauty problems, but also health problems. (bad smell)
-While some are concerned about their hair, body or face, others have major problems. One of those problems is the vaginal odor caused by infections.
We know, we know – facial cleansing is pretty easy, right? Splash on some water, work in some product and you're basically good to go. Except it's not as straightforward as that with the range of cleansers on hand, and if you're not scrubbing up properly, the signs will start to show.
1. Face wipes
It might be time to break up with the face wipes; yes we know they're the easy option, but at what price to your skin? The majority are loaded with chemicals which, sure, will dissolve your makeup, but surfactants and emulsifiers tend to aggravate. Not to mention the scrubbing involved on a stubborn scrap of mascara, all that pulling is a massive no-no around your delicate eyes.
2. Harsh cleansers on oily skin:
Sure, it seems only logical to go hardcore on oily skin, and opt for grainy,
It is never too early, or late, to start preventing wrinkles. You can always benefit from these seven simple anti-wrinkle remedies:

But they’ll make your hair look shinier and feel softer to the touch. Incorporate these oils in a multitude of ways — as a leave-in conditioner, pre-shampoo conditioning treatment or a detangle

FACE MASK MISTAKE #1: YOU DON’T TAKE YOUR SKIN TYPE

WHAT IS WATERLESS SHAMPOO?
You may be wondering, "what’s the difference between waterless shampoo and dry shampoo?" Well, actually, there is no difference! The two are one are the same, but waterless shampoo is sometimes used as a broader term to describe different types of dry shampoo formulas. While dry shampoo is often solely associated with an aerosol spray, it can also come in an array of different forms, such as foam and powder. You may see these forms referred to as waterless shampoos, but it’s all the same thi
Summer is great for a lot of reasons—and if you’re anything like us, then chances are you’re big fans of spending quality time at the beach, enjoying outdoor happy hours with friends, and attending holiday BBQs.

Excess sebum is the pet peeve of mixed to oily skin. The care to be applied, the diet to adopt, the techniques to be considered... We go around the solutions with dermatologist Nadine Pomarède.
Some clichés have a hard life: no, sebum is not our enemy. On the contrary, its secretion is a natural phenomenon and allows a good maintenance of the skin's hydration. "Sebum is made by the sebaceous gland located in the middle part of the skin. In all, two million sebaceous glands produce the sebum, which then spills onto the skin, helping to protect it from the environment," explains Nadine Pomarède. But, as everything is a question of balance, there is not too much need for it.
THE SEBUM EXCESS, WHAT is IT?
As production increases, hyperseborrhea is more commonly thought to be excess sebum. In
It is not uncommon to want to have firm and perky breasts. Unfortunately, pregnancy, hormone fluctuations, and aging of the breast tissue and skin can easily cause your breasts to sag. While you can quickly achieve dramatic results by consulting a medical professional and possibly having surgery, this is not the only route to getting firmer breasts. Adjusting your lifestyle and posture habits will prevent any further sagging from occurring, and developing a normal exercise routine that targets the chest muscles will lift your breasts over time.

Over time, the skin changes and sometimes leaves brown spots. Where do they come from? How do we make them disappear? There are some natural remedies to fade them, by picking from the cupboards of the kitchen.
Brown spots: what is it?
Brown spots are a sign of skin aging. Over time, the skin lacks elasticity and creates wrinkles, but more or less dark spots can also appear. It is also one of the skin's reactions to sun exposure: its UV rays are the primary cause of early skin aging. Depending on the sensitivity of your skin, it is possible to see brown spots appear more or less early: sometimes from the age of 30, but more generally around 45 or 50 years of age because menopause also upsets the balance of the body and especially the sensitivity of the skin and its ability to regenerate.

If acne is a well-known problem for one part of the population, everyone is affected, more or less severely, by another evil: blackheads. These comedones are many's nightmares and spoil the promise of a perfect complexion, especially since getting rid of them can be difficult.

The point about the blackheads!
These small clumps of dead cells and sebum clog the pores of our skin. Indeed, when the epidermis produces too much "fat," it slows down the mechanism of cell renewal. They most often appear on the T-zone of the face (i.e. forehead, nose and chin) and sometimes on the cheeks of oily skin.
Only very dry skin spared this phenomenon. For everyone else, it's important to adopt a daily care routine:
Cleane your skin once or twice a day with a gentle face cleanser. The idea is to clarify the epidermis without attacking it.
Remove the last impurities and tighten your pores with a purifying or astringent lotion.
Blackheads are one of the most common forms of acne. Although people who have oily skin are more vulnerable to blackheads, anyone can get them. They form when pores become clogged with a combination of dead skin cells and excess oil (sebum) from your sebaceous glands.
Unlike whiteheads, which create closed pores, blackheads have open surfaces. This creates an oxidation that is dark in color.
It may be tempting to try to pinch or push the black plug out, but this can cause unnecessary scarring and other damage to your skin.
You’ll likely have better results using the tips and tricks outlined below. Keep reading to learn how to get rid of your blackheads and prevent future ones from forming.

Taking care of one's skin does not always seem easy and yet there are natural methods that have proven their worth. The facial sauna is one of these methods. Although still unknown, it plays an essential role in preparing the skin for various treatments such as scrubs or detoxifying treatment. The facial sauna also allows you to make a good facial preparation before tackling the thorny problem of blackheads.
What is a facial sauna?
First of all, let's make the presentations. What is the facial sauna? A facial sauna is a small portable device that simply uses steam to dilate the pores of the skin at the level of the face. How does it work? It's very simple and especially fast because the operation does not take more than fifteen minutes. The skin must be cleaned properly beforehand. Of cou...
Two of the most persistent and difficult skin problems to treat are blackheads and enlarged pores. Most skincare products or treatments do provide a temporary improvement, but they only make your skin problems worse in the long run. Here you can read some tips on how to treat blackheads and enlarged pores effectively and with a lasting result.
WHAT CAUSES ENLARGED PORES?
When your sebaceous glands produce excessive sebum that mixes with the dead skin cells in your pores, your pores can become blocked. The sebum cannot discharge freely from the pores, resulting in your pores becoming wider and more clearly visible. This can also cause blackheads.
WHAT YOU SHOULD AND SHOULD NOT DO
Stop using skincare products that block your pores or that make your skin produce excessive sebum, such as oi...

Regardless of their shape or size, breasts are to their advantage when their skin is soft and velvety. Give them a weekly scrub with a delicate exfoliating shower gel (L'Occitane Almond Gommante Shower, 13) or even with a formula for the face (avoid large-grain scrubs on this fine and sensitive area).
Then enjoy the neckline of your moisturizing mask, ideal for defrosting it. And every day, massage the entire area, breasts and bust, going up to the neck with a sweet milk enriched with honey (Honey Nourish...
Last year I chopped 10 inches off my hair and immediately panicked. What had I done? I’m sure you’ve had a similar, post-haircut moment of regret. I wanted a change, but I didn’t realize just how drastic it would be. As I reeled to figure out how to remedy this now irreversible situation, I recalled reading somewhere that hair grows an average of 6 inches a year...so regrowing those 10 inches could take me almost two full years! (And that’s not factoring in trims and breakage). I felt stuck without my hair and now had a new mission: to reclaim it.
Suddenly obsessed with growing my hair out as quickly as possible, I decided to apply everything I’d learned in nutrition training about hair growth to kick-start the process. It couldn’t hurt.
In addition, I established a beauty regimen tha
