Hot Beauty Trend For Fall: Facial Oils

Facial oils – Those tiny little bottles that promise not only soft and nourished skin, but also a pumped-up glow and immediate radiance, have become a huge thing. With Miranda Kerr, Kim Kardashian, and Kate Middleton all being big fans, it’s actually no wonder facial oils are flying off the shelves.

You’re still sceptical? Well, you have all the right to be. I mean, haven’t we all spent half of our lives trying to get rid of that oily skin? Why on earth would we now want to slather pure oil on our faces?

So let us talk about the benefits of facial oils. Here we go with 5 reasons, why adding facial oils to your daily beauty routine might be a pretty damn good idea:

They rebuild and maintain the skin’s lipid barrier

This makes the skin more resistant to external influences such as heated air, over-cleansing, exfoliating, stress or low humidity. It can also speed up the skin’s own healing process.

Botanical oils contain antioxidants

and therefore they protect the skin from free-radical damage.

They are preventing water loss more effectively

since oils are “fat loving” (lipophilic) they can pass the skin’s lipid layer faster than a cream. The result? Intense moisture as well as plump, smooth skin.

Great primer for anti-aging products

Also, if you put on facial oil before applying anti-aging cream, the oil molecules trick your skin into letting glycolic acid, vitamin C and all the other active ingredients even deeper into the skin.

They upgrade your make-up

Mixing facial oil with foundation is an absolute game changer – especially on colder days. Adding only a few drops of oil to your foundation will not only smooth out imperfections but also hydrate skin for an all-day make up look that doesn’t flake off.

3 Tips For Self Defense From Gigi Hadid

Milan Fashion Week is all cool and dandy until you’re Gigi Hadid and some prankster tries to lift you up and carry you away. This is what happened as the supermodel walked out of MaxMara’s show together with her sister, Bella Hadid. As she stopped on her way to take photos with fans, some guy grabbed her from behind and lifted her up.

Gigi’s reaction was to elbow the man in the neck. Which we found a brilliant and prompt reaction. However, some websites found it quite un-model-like. To the haters, Gigi responded:

“To unknown article writer: fan?!!! The ACTUAL fans that were there can tell you what happened. I’m a HUMAN BEING, and had EVERY RIGHT to defend myself. How dare that idiot thinks he has the right to man-handle a complete stranger. He ran quick tho.”

We think Gigi Hadid is more than right and had an appropriate reaction to a situation that could have been dangerous. She also added later:

GIRLS, prepare yourselves so that, if you ever feel in danger, MUSCLE MEMORY can fight back for you. Thank you all so much for ur support.

Agree? Here are our tips to be ready:

Take self-defense classes

This is a no-brainer, but also something that not enough girls and women get to take seriously. And a solid knowledge of self-defense can give you that muscle memory Gigi is talking about. Take classes!

Get yourself some pepper spray

That, or some other handbag-friendly weapons thought for girls in emergency situations, like keychain weapons and teasers.

Don’t be afraid to react

An attack or a potential one can be scary, but what’s scarier at times is some people’s response to it. Forget the haters (like those who called Gigi un-model-like for reacting) and trust your instincts.

All works by Selman Hoşgör

We have all been there: band and celebrity posters were a must in our teenage bedrooms, and still now when visiting home we look at them with a hint of nostalgia. Weren’t the days of romantic fandom so neat?

Well, I’ve got good news for you. That teenage fandom doesn’t need to end, but it can take other, more adult and socially acceptable form. Today, we are talking about artist Selman Hoşgör. Collage artists and graphic designer, Selman takes the icons of our times and transforms them into wonderful works.

His portfolio includes a number of icon and celebrity posters portraying names like Woody Allen, David Bowie, Quentin Tarantino, Alfred Hitchcock, as well as famous writers (Hemingway, Joyce, Christie!) and movie-inspired posters. And they’re all inspired, modern, and simply brilliant.

Get a glimpse of Selman Hoşgör’s work in our gallery, and check out his shop.

6 Health And Beauty Myths, Debunked

With all the people converting to gluten-free products, paleo diets and strict all-natural beauty regimes, it seems like the obsession concerning all things healthy could be doing more damage than good. It’s important to take care of your body, but misinformation on the topic can do as much harm as a month of cheeseburgers for lunch.

The main rule to keep in mind while browsing Pinterest in search for the perfect detox diets (spoiler: they usually don’t work) is one: don’t believe everything you read.

Let’s debunk some myths, shall we?

1. Hair grows back darker and thicker once shaved

The days fearing the razor are over. Shaving your hair doesn’t affect the roots, and it only seems like it’s growing thicker because the base popping out of your skin is wider than the top (the one you shaved right off).

2. Your should wash your hair every day

Nope. Washing your hair every day can actually damage it, as the chemicals contained in hair products can strip down the natural nutrients your hair uses to take care of itself. Stick to a few times per week.

3. Juicing is a great idea

No, it’s actually a pretty bad idea. Yes, you will lose weight — for about a couple of weeks. The liquid diet will slow down your metabolism, resulting in a possible extra weight gain once you resume a solid diet.

4. Detox diets are the next big thing

All this buzz about detoxing juices is widely misunderstood: your body already has a way to detox itself; ever heard of kidneys and liver? All the detox ‘regime’ you need involves eating more veggies, limiting alcohol and avoiding junk food. Here you go.

5. Junk food causes acne

The occasional pizza or chocolate bar is not the reason of your latest acne breakout. However, when you decide to embrace the pizza diet or any steady fatty diet (but again, who does that after 14?), all the resulting toxins that you put in your body can affect skin balance.

6. Split ends can heal

If you’ve just invested a good amount of money on a shampoo starter pack which promised to repair your split ends, you could have spent the money on something better, like a Netflix account. The only way to make split ends disappear is cutting them off.
