postheadericon Which Wrinkle Treatment?

There is more than one type of wrinkle treatment on the market, so which one should you go for? The two main dermal injectables that you are likely to have heard of are BOTOX and Restylane, but although they both combat the signs of ageing, they have little else in common, says Sheridan, who offers beauty treatments in Harley St, London. They function in completely different ways and there are different reasons why you would choose to use one over the other. While BOTOX works by paralyzing the muscles in the face to decrease wrinkling, Restylane operates by smoothing creases in the skin and filling in the fine lines.

What Are the Advantages Of BOTOX?

There aren’t many people who haven’t heard of BOTOX. It is one of the most popular wrinkle treatments in the world and is becoming more common year after year. So, what exactly is BOTOX? Derived from a toxic substance called clostridium botulinum, this protein is injected into the facial muscles, weakening them and reducing wrinkles. Within as short a space of time as a week, fine lines can completely vanish, making it the perfect solution for those who suffer from crow’s feet, laughter lines and forehead wrinkling. There is another benefit too. For those who suffer from excessive sweating (known as hyperhidrosis), BOTOX injections in the armpits can cure the problem and reduce suffering.

What Types of Dermal Fillers Are There?

There are a few different types of dermal filler that are made from a range of substances, however they tend to produce the same effect, namely plumping up of the lips and filling in of the lines on the face. Restylane, along with Juvéderm and Perlane, is one of the most popular dermal fillers and is made from a synthetic copy of a substance usually found in healthy skin, hyaluronic acid. Fillers made using this clear gel are safer than those using collagen as they use a substance found in the human body. Collagen is sometimes derived from cows and is therefore more likely to cause allergic reactions. There are, however, several human derived collagen fillers now on the market, including CosmoPlast (TM) and CosmoDerm (TM). Restylane injections work well on more severe wrinkles and can be used on the lips, unlike BOTOX, because it does not paralyze the muscles. Although the injections can cause puffiness in the face, wrinkles will be filled in rather than decreased like in BOTOX treatments. Radiesse is another effective dermal filler which can produce very long-lasting results of up to 5 years. Because it is made from substances naturally produced in human bones, calcium and phosphate ions, it is very safe, although currently physicians are suggesting that patients try using Restylane as a first option before attempting Radiesse as it is a long-term commitment.

postheadericon Our Favourite Fall Boots 2018

We’ve officially tucked away our pumps and sandals and brought out our favourite fall accessory, the boot. We are beyond ecstatic for the return of the boot, not just because our toes can be kept warm for this new season, but that we’re doing it in style (not to mention we can take a break from making sure our pedicures are up to date!) Whether your lifestyle calls for a constant on-the-go comfort boot or a statement knee high for a showstopping walk, we’ve listed our favourite styles of the season for every occasion!

The Ankle Boot

Undeniably a personal favourite of many, we’re obsessed with the full coverage of our toes this boot provides without covering up our entire leg. Whether you’re into the rounded or pointed front, I’ve listed for you a few my eyes can’t part from. Pair these with some skinny jeans, a warm coat and some chic accessories like Oliver Peoples sunglasses for the perfect look!

The Knee High

Perhaps you’re looking for warmth and length but wanting to stride in comfort. That’s why I love the knee high boot to throw over my favourite pair of jeans any time of day and strut with ease.

The Over-the-Knee High

Who knew that exuding ultimate sexiness can be done by actually covering up more your legs with these stylish babes and a touch of stiletto. The over-the knee high gives our body length and can be paired against our favourite oversized sweater or LBD.

The Rain Boot

Often times considered for its functionality over fashion, we’re here to tell you that rain boots can be cute too! From classic solid rubber to hardware touches and accents, we’re prepared to fight the stormy weather in these favourites.

postheadericon Fashion intentions: These sets improve your style immediately!

You envy stylish women for their great outfits and their self-confidence? Then you should regularly say these sentences to yourself.

Proud of myself and my body

To be honest, the perfect body does not exist. Because what seems so immaculate on Instagram and Co. is almost always interplay of favorable pose, flattering light and a few Photoshop click. So do not be blinded by these pictures – they do not reflect reality. Among the Fashion Tips and Advice this is a very important matter now.

That which is real, you are. Take a close look in the mirror: What do you like most? What makes you beautiful and unique? Try to do just that with your styling instead of just masking the supposed problem areas. For example, if you have a nice neckline, emphasize it by wearing a v-neckline. And if you are proud of your legs, show them!

Not going to dictate anything.

“As a blonde you should not wear black, with thick thighs a mini skirt is taboo and jeans on jeans is not”. There are endless styling tips and well-intentioned advice but more important than the opinion from the outside is that you feel comfortable in your clothes.

Stylish women know that and wear their outfits with their heads held high and with a lot of self-confidence. And that makes her so attractive.

  1. I bet on class, instead of on earth.

Women with a great style do not chase after every trend, but choose clothes and accessories wisely.

Quality instead of quantity

Do it the same and do not stuff your closet with bargains, but rather save for some high quality parts. This can be a genuine leather bag, fine shoes or perfectly fitting jeans. Think in advance of how to combine the pieces and buy only clothes that you are sure you will like for a long time. Also make sure that everything fits perfectly. So you avoid bad buys and get a better style.

  1. I also dare something.

It’s tempting and so easy to grab sweaters and jeans every morning. But the fun of fashion remains completely on the track. And that is so important if you want to get a better style.

So try to spice up your look with some refinement. Wear a top in a trendy pop color or wear a blouse with an extravagant cut. You can just wear it to your comfortable everyday jeans – it creates an exciting style.

  1. I often clean my closet.

Behind every stylish woman is a tidy wardrobe because only those who have a good overview of his clothes fundus can create new cool outfits every day.

Take a day off (perfect is a rainy Sunday) and do a thorough wardrobe inventory. Clean up everything and then try out new looks in front of the mirror. Be brave and take pictures of the most beautiful styles. This will give you a better sense of what you have and what you do not.

By the way: Here we reveal you ingenious wardrobe hacks, thanks to which you can easily keep order!

  1. I separate myself from what does not make me happy.

When we’re cleaning up, blow everything out, which will not make you happy. These include the old jeans that you’ve been trying to fit in for four years now (do not use them!), The dress that was expensive, but makes you look pale, or the trend pants in which your legs seem somehow short.

Be critical and ask each part of the famous Guido question: Does the part do something for me? Such a mucking action not only creates space in the closet, but also does really good.

  1. I pay more attention to my clothes.

No matter if a creased blouse, dirty shoes or a fuzzy sweater – we pay too little attention to our clothes. The result: We have to buy new things more often, because unfortunately, lack of care harms our clothes extremely. This becomes particularly clear on leather shoes or bags. If they are not regularly cleaned and treated with leather care, the leather dries out, tears or stains that cannot be removed anymore. That is why it is said after wearing: Clean and do not forget care!

For clothes: Swing more often times the iron and use lint and shaver! Because no matter how expensive blouse or sweater, they have creases or lint, they look directly cheap.
