Behind The Scenes Of A Schwarzkopf Makeover

me_feature_249

Schwartzkopf is known for their amazing hair care products. In Canada, they have only been available for hair professionals in salons. After 10 years of research and perfecting the products with Claudia Schiffer as a co-developer, Henkel Canada is proud to announce the launch of the Schwarzkopf ULTÎME collection for colour, care and styling and Schwarzkopf Keratin Color for hair that needs extra attention for the luxurious experience at home.

I was lucky enough to be one of the stylists for the new launch and Rosemina was my client. I sprayed her hair with the Ultime Crystal Shine & Hold Heat Protection Shine Spray ($6.97 CDN) and decided to use the Conair Infiniti Pro Curl Secret Curling Iron ($98.96 CDN) to enhance her already gorgeous curls on level 8 on heat setting #2. I finished her hair by using the Schwarzkopf Styliste Ultime Crystal Shine & Hold Hairspray ($6.97 CDN).

For makeup, I enhanced Rosemina’s look by applying MAC’s Plum Foolery blush ($26 CDN) onto the apples of her cheeks. I filled in her brows with Benefit’s Gimme Brow Volumizing Fibre Gel in Medium/Deep ($30 CDN).

I used Mac’s Eyeshadow in Brun ($19 CDN) on the other ends of her eyes to add some contrast and Mac’s Eyeshadow in Shroom ($19 CDN) on the brow bone.

I applied false eyelashes #802 by Quo ($7.65 CDN) as close to her eye line as possible. I curled her natural lashes along with the falsies. This step helps adhere lashes together to prevent the “double lash.” I finished her eyes off with a double coat of 24-Hour LashBlast Mascara by Covergirl.

For lips, I lined Rosemina’s lips with Cutie Pink 07 Lip Liner by Essence to complement her gorgeous skin tone and used Nymphette Lipglass by M.A.C. ($19 CDN) to add shine.

I get Rosemina to flip her head over one last time and finger tousle her curls and spray with hairspray one more time. I always say, “hair is like cookies; it needs a few minutes to settle into its own.

How To Deal With Adult Acne

1440778944_1436215763_dermalogica

Canada’s first ever Acne Awareness Week is September 14 to 20, 2015. Five million Canadians have acne. Acne was once thought of as a teen-only skin condition, however, it is also common in adult women. Acne effects 90 per cent of teens. Up to 22 per cent, or one in five women, suffer from acne during adulthood compared to just three per cent of men. The rate of depression due to acne is 10 per cent.

Adult acne isn’t pretty. It makes you want to run and hide. Here are some effective treatments to help you handle your out-of-control skin.

Benzoyl Peroxide

Primarily an antibacterial agent, the main effect of benzoyl peroxide on the skin is to introduce oxygen to the clogged parts of the skin’s pores. The more oxygen, the more fatal the environment is for the anaerobic bacteria. Benzoyl peroxide is capable of wiping out acne-causing organisms such as propionibacterium acnes. Benzoyl peroxide may also be used in combination with salicylic acid.

Salicylic Acid

Salicylic acid is an exfoliating agent that peels off dead skin cells by loosening the binding substance that make the surface skin cells stick together. It combines well with oil and can penetrate deep inside clogged pores. By doing this, salicylic acid helps speed up the growth of new skin cells, it keeps the pores clear and prevents future acne outbreaks. Salicylic acid may be used in combination with benzoyl peroxide. If you have sensitive skin it is best to start with .05 per cent as the active ingredient and move upwards of two per cent because it may cause dryness.

MicroSilver BG

MicroSilver BG is a natural antimicrobial cleansing product. It is a pure metallic silver powder with a very unique particle structure consisting of highly porous micro-sized silver particles. MicroSilver BG is safe, free of side effects and does not penetrate skin or mucosal tissue because of its large particle size (average of 10 micrometers). The 99.9 per cent pure metallic silver is obtained from nature and, using a patented production process, pulverized by purely physical methods. It contains no parabens and has never been tested on animals.

Sensational Skin: Review of the Hammam and Gommage Treatment at the Miraj Hammam Spa

Taking care of our skin is always essential, but a little extra care is necessary when the weather is changing. I was lucky to get an appointment at the luxurious Miraj Hammam Spa at the Shangri-La Hotel in Toronto for the Hammam and Gommage treatment and it was unforgettable.

I was welcomed at the front desk, where I filled out a form asking what type of pressure I prefer, as well as any sensitivities and health concerns I have. I was then taken to the change room where I was given a locker with a digital lock to put my belongings in, fresh slippers in my size and a robe.

I was then introduced to Inna who would be giving me the treatment. I was given the option of disposable undergarments and a sheet to wear like a towel and then I was taken into a beautiful, gigantic steam room made of Jerusalem gold marble. The room is extremely hot at 110 degrees Celsius. I was given a towel to lie down on and a cup of fresh, cold water. Inna explained that I could turn the steam off if it felt too hot and that she’d check in on me in eight minutes and would be in the next room if I needed anything. I spent 15 (very relaxing) minutes in the steam room and it felt amazing.

We moved to the front of the steam area, which is 100 degrees Celsius, and I lay face down on my tummy, on a towel, and Inna, wearing Keess gloves, massaged me with eucalyptus and black Moroccan soap. I started to feel like a new person. I turned over onto my back and was exfoliated from neck to toe. Read more…
