It's hard to resist popping that pimple when you're having a breakout, but trust us, not touching it is the best you can do. Let the magic of various products with benzoyl peroxide, green tea, tea tree oil, lemon, and sage extract do the clearing out for you. Change up your skincare regimen for the time being and use a facial wash that treats acne, a clearing toner, and a moisturizer that specializes is busting out those pimples. Just don't go overboard as it may irritate your skin and cause more pimples! You can also go ahead and use a drying lotion or if it gets worse, visit your derma. 

Dry Skin

Dry skin can either be your natural skin type or caused by some of the products you put on our skin. It's best to stay away from harsh products and stick to gentle ones, However, if the dry patches are really showing up, go on a hydrating spree. There are tons of products that give you that extra moisture you need, just look for keywords such as "hydrating" and "moisturising". For an instant hydrated feeling, you can also go for masks. Just put it on top of your face, rest for a while, and remove the mask. You'll feel rejuvenated in an instant!

You may be young but when wrinkles start appearing around your eyes and the corners of your mouth, it's downhill from there. The best way to "cure" wrinkles is to prevent them as early as now. Buy anti-aging moisturisers, serums, and the most important one of all--sunblock. The sun's harmful rays are the biggest contributors to signs of skin aging, so make sure you're protected all over. Wear a pair sunnies and a hat for extra protection!

Big Pores and Oily Skin

Big pores and oily skin are caused by the environment your skin goes through over time. You can solve this by "shrinking" them and making them less noticeable. Keep your eye out for retinol or vitamin C as these antioxidants help the skin increase collagen and elastin production while simultaneously loosening dirt and oil from the pores. You can also go for makeup products that absorb oil to reduce the shine on your T-zone. Lastly, commit to regular exfoliation at least 2-3 times a week and you'll get better skin over time!

If you popped your pimples (it's okay, we're all guilty of that) then chances are you'll also be a victim of scarring. Go for products that have honey, cucumber extracts, olive oil, and lemon juice. Or, since these are ingredients that you can find at home, go for a D-I-Y skin remedy. It will be fun and your skin will love the natural ingredients too!

Love colouring your hair but hate how quickly it fades? Wish you could maintain and extend the colour and lustre of your hair? Struggling with dry, frizzy hair after multiple colouring sessions? We've got you covered!

So don't let the hours spent seated on a salon chair go to waste. Here are 4 quick tips on what to do next to maintain that wonderful burst of colour and keep your hair healthy and vibrant.


Avoid using Sulfate-based products on your hair

Sulfates strip colour from hair as they contain salt which strips away moisture from your hair--which is essentially one of the main causes of colour fade. So before anything else stock up on sulfate-free hair products.
Wash your hair less often

Washing your hair often causes hair colour to fade a lot quicker. So if you can, switch to washing your hair every other day. To keep second-day hair looking fresh and clean, invest in a good dry shampoo that can soak up the oils on your scalp, leaving your hair smelling fresh and clean. Quick Tip: to add more body to your hair, flip your hair over and spray the dry shampoo along the roots. Massage the dry shampoo into your scalp, flip your hair back up, and style as usual.

Always condition your hair

Always condition your hair to keep it from look frizzy and dry. Pick a conditioner specifically made for coloured hair as these nourish and condition while locking in the colour in your hair. On days when your hair isn't feeling particularly dirty or oily, skip the shampoo and go straight to the conditioner as shampoos tend to strip colour a lot faster.

Use less heat on your hair

Coloured hair is more susceptible to damage. So if you can, use less heat on your hair. Yes, that means you may have to skip blow drying, flat-ironing, or curling your hair on some days. If you absolutely must use heat to style your hair, be sure to use a heat-protecting styling product and keep your tools at the lowest heat setting.
