Tea Tree Oil for Skin Problems

T

Tea tree oil, also known as melaleuca oil, is a type of essential oil that has a fresh camphoraceous odor. It’s also one of those substances that a number of health bloggers love right now and recommend for… all kinds of stuff. Which isn’t to say you’re meant to eat it. You definitely are not – tea tree oil is actually toxic when used orally. However, it is found in low concentrations in all...

Are Gel Manicures Bad for You?

A

Gel manicures utilize a type of nail polish that uses gel rather than the usual paint. This gel is in fact a liquid monomer and polymer powder and is then cured under UV lights. The result is a far more resilient finish that can’t easily be scratched or damaged and which dries in seconds. This means women no longer have to worry about their nails being ruined the moment they leave the salon and...

How to Treat and Prevent Razor Bumps

H

Razor bumps are the small, red, raised areas that can be left behind after shaving. This is particularly a problem for women who will often find themselves with the small marks when shaving their bikini lines. In some cases, this can be just as unattractive as the hair itself and it can also be quite uncomfortable. Men can also deal with razor bumps though. In this case, they may appear...

If you’re spending lots of money and time on your skin regime, then you should make sure that you aren’t doing anything on a regular basis to jeopardize its effectiveness. Makes sense, right?

How to Make Your Nose Look Smaller Without Surgery

H

I’ve always had something of a big nose. I’m no Barry Manilow, but unfortunately my nose is somewhat ‘wide’ and my big grin only serves to increase its width meaning that it takes up a bit more of my face than I would ideally like a lot of the time. When I was younger this used to upset me more than it does now (because I have a self-esteem these days that borders on full...

Is Sweat Damaging My Hair?

I

Whether or not sweat damages your hair is a matter that’s open to debate. On the one hand some saunas and steam rooms will claim that sweating can help provide your hair with oils and thereby encourage it to become healthy, but at the same time there is also the concern that the salt in your hair will soak up the moisture and thereby dry out and damage your hair. There is some truth to both...
