Seven of the best nappy rash soothers

  • Post a comment

A bum with nappy rash is not a happy bum. In fact, it’s a red, inflamed, very sore bum. And because tiny tots can’t exactly express their pain with words, it’s important for mums of little ones to keep products on hand that treat this skin irritation, which is commonly caused by the dampness of a wet nappy coming into contact with delicate baby skin for too long. Not sure which treatments are best? Hover your mouse over the pink stars to find out why these seven products well and truly deserve a place in every mum’s nappy sack…

Looks like Natural Instinct has changed it's packaging from the white and blue and if the ingredients are the same the products are very nice and natural. I love Fudge hair products and if the dry shampoo smells anything like the hairspray, I'll be hooked! Have to get my hands on the Elegant Touch nail art, loving the polka dots. The Sanctuary Spa Facial Oil looks and seems divine - just may be the perfect indulgence for winter! Thanks for the newbie products update Carli.

How-to: Emmy Rossum’s upside down chignon

  • Post a comment
Emmy-rossum-hair-how-to_article_new

Sometimes we come across a celebrity hairstyle that we just can’t get enough of. A style that looks so chic and so stylish and so difficult to recreate that we just can’t bear it.

So we go to the experts to see if they have the answers, and don’t you know it – they often come back with the goods, like they have today. For Emmy Rossum’s stylish upside-down chignon, we turned to Remington Schulz, Salon Director at Brad Ngata Hair Design in Sydney’s Surry Hills,and he told us exactly how to recreate this look, in just six steps!

-    Start by applying a generous apple-sized amount of Shu Uemera Ample Angora Volumising Light Foam to freshly washed hair. Work the product through your hair with your fingers from your mid-lengths to the ends.
-    Create a definite, deep side part (using the high arch of your eyebrow for reference) and blow dry your hair smoothly using a large, round brush.
-    Section your hair vertically all the way to the nape of your neck, leaving one section loose and the remainder clipped away. Use a large barrel tong to curl the large, loose section of hair by winding the barrel towards your face.
-    Allow the curl to cool slightly and then roll it up the side of your head and secure tightly (in a rolled curl) with a bobby pin.
-    Repeat this step on all sections until all of your hair is pinned around your head at ear level.
-     Finish this style with a light mist of shine spray (like Shu Uemura Sheer Lacquer) to give a glam finish.

TOP TIP:
To ensure the front of your hair looks just like Emmy’s, grab your fringe piece and curl it over the top, underneath, and back over the top of your large barrel tong, so that the curl bends back towards the back of your head. Position the curl on the side of your head and bobby pin it in place.

What is your favourite ever sophisticated evening hairstyle?

That's pretty. I like a low, side bun, it's so elegant for evening. I have a long way to go until I can do any long upstyle that's for sure. At the moment I have a real bob.

I like it from the back but not a fan of the look from the front.

Effective anti-ageing – no surgery required!

  • Post a comment
Elizabeth-arden-capsules_article_new

Getting older definitely has its perks. For one, you’re a lot wiser (or seem to be, at least), so people actually take you seriously when you dish out advice. You also get to appreciate things you may not have when you were younger – like a good wine or an expensive meal.

But there are downfalls, too. Like having to be responsible all the time. And having to pay about a gazillion bills. And let’s not forget the changes to your skin tone, elasticity, and overall appearance. That’s not fun at all.

And while surgery to smooth, lift and tighten is an option, going under the knife may not be so appealing for you. But that doesn’t mean all is lost for you and your skin. In fact, with technological advancements in skin care today, some products are the perfect alternative to surgery.

Take Elizabeth Arden Ceramide Gold Ultra Restorative Capsules Intensive Treatment for Face and Throat, for instance. Research into ceramides – some of the essential lipids found in the skin’s barrier layer that help protect skin from ageing – led to the development of bio-engineered, skin identical ceramides that could be used in cosmetics, and thus the pure, potent single-dose aforementioned ceramide capsules were born.

So what does that actually mean for your skin? Quite a lot. Here are just five ways in which the airtight capsules work to help counter the signs of ageing on your face and neck:
1) Skin tone and clarity are improved to leave your skin looking brighter and more radiant.
2) The capsules almost instantly help retexturise your skin, leaving it looking smoother and feeling softer.
3) The concentrated formula works a treat on minimising and reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
4) They help strengthen the skin’s natural protective barrier, meaning that you’ve got a stronger defense against the elements that age you (like the sun or pollutants.)
5) The capsules support your natural collagen production, so your skin is left looking firmer and more resilient.

Oh, and besides all of this? You get great results without the pesky downtime of surgery. If that’s not a skin care win, then I don’t know what is.

Special offer: So if all of the above isn’t enough to convince you that the Elizabeth Arden Ceramide Gold Ultra Restorative Capsules Intensive Treatment for Face and Throat should be a part of your anti-ageing arsenal, then you’ll be pleased to know that you can head in-store for a free skin care consultation and a free three day pillow pack sample to trial. And once you’ve fallen in love with the results, you can invest in the starter kit – a 30-piece pack priced at a cool $65 (the regular-sized 60-piece pack retails for $125).

Have you ever tried the Elizabeth Arden Ceramide Gold Ultra Restorative Capsules Intensive Treatment for Face and Throat? What’s your biggest age-related skin concern?

A friend of mine uses this product and she told me what she is using after i commented on how beautiful her skin is, i think it has made a remarkable difference in the appearance of her skin. A little to pricey for me unfortunetly.
