What Have You Been Neglecting?

7waystoencouragehealthyfingernailgrowth

For so long I was focused on making sure my mug was makeup optional. I became more conscious of ingredients and listened to what my skin was telling me it needed. As I learned more I couldn’t help but notice that there are other parts of the body that age as well and will reveal my true age if not properly cared for. Because I don’t have crow’s feet, deep dark circles, or bags the size of oranges, I felt I didn’t need an eye cream. The deeper I divulged into skincare I noticed my neck was being treated like a step child. I thought I could just carry my face moisturizer down to my neck and it was fine. Lastly, when I heard a more mature woman say, “You can always tell a woman’s age by looking at her hands,” a light bulb went off.

Of course I decided to see what the hype about an eye cream was all about. I’ve found that the more I used an eye cream my concealer didn’t crease, and the amount of concealer needed decreased; the puffiness in the morning is little to none, and my under eye area has brightened over time. I also decided to give my neck a little more moisture and attention. I’m not one for piling on the products, so I researched and found a great moisturizer that works wonders for the face and neck area. So often we don’t think to address an issue until we see signs of darkness, wrinkles, or aging. For me, moisture and prevention is key. As for those who are a little more “anti aging” conscious there are great products out there. The same woman who told me about my hands also encouraged me to pay more attention to the amount of  hand sanitizer usage, encouraging me to use one with vitamin e to help moisturize.

As women it’s in our nature to pick, poke, and pry until we find something wrong. Then we’ll focus on that “problem,” while all the while neglecting something else. What are you neglecting?

Beauty Supply Stores: Is It Better to Shop Locally or Online?

When it comes to buying beauty products and beauty supplies, you will find that you have a number of different options. For starters, beauty products are most commonly sold at beauty supply stores, but they are also available at other locations, including department stores and fashion stores. If you are looking for the latest selection of beauty products and supplies, you may want to think about sticking with beauty supply stores. Even then though you still have a choice. Beauty supply stores are operated both in storefront retail locations, as well as online.

If this is your first time deciding to take your appearance, beauty wise, seriously, you may have never shopped at a beauty supply store before or it may have been a while since the last time that you did. If that is the case, you may be wondering whether you should shop online or locally and if there is even a difference between the two. If you are, you will want to continue reading on.

One of the most commonly asked questions, concerning beauty supply stores, is what is the difference between a locally operated beauty supply store and an online beauty supply store. As you likely already know, a locally owned and operated beauty store is one that you physically visit, pick out what you like, pay for it, and then leave. When shopping at an online store, you just need to enter in your shipping information and your payment information. You can buy beauty products and supplies from an online beauty store anytime of the day, from the comfort of your own home.

Another difference between a storefront beauty supply store and an online beauty supply store is the assistance that you will receive. That is one of the reasons why many consumers prefer buying their beauty supplies and products from locally owned and operated beauty supply stores. When shopping online, the online retailer in question may have a customer service number that you can call, but you will likely not be able to receive help with buying makeup or suggestions. Help and suggestions, also commonly known as consultations, are one of the many reasons why many prefer shopping at a locally owned and operated beauty supply store, as most have very helpful and knowledgeable staff members.

The product selection is also something that you may want to think about taking into consideration. While many storefront beauty supply stores do carry a large selection of beauty product and supplies, you may find that some stores are limited on space. There are also stores that focus only on certain individuals, like men or women. This limits your selection of beauty supplies and products to choose from. What is nice about online beauty supply stores is that they do not have to worry about fitting all of their merchandise onto a sales floor. That is why you can often find a large selection of beauty supplies and products when shopping online. Also, you will find that you are instantly able to gain access to as many as fifty or more beauty supply stores in a matter of seconds. This is something that you cannot do just driving around town in your car.

As you can see, there are a few differences between online beauty supply stores and locally owned and operated beauty supply stores. There are also a number of pros and cons to each. For the best shopping experience, you may actually want to think about experimenting with both locally owned and operated beauty supply stores and online beauty supply stores. If you are like many shoppers, you will likely develop a preference almost right away.
