Why Do We Need Sunscreen

Image
Our skin is sensitive, and we have to protect it against many enemies. You may think that sunbathing is good (which it is, if you don't stay out for too many hours) but the sun leaves terrible marks such as wrinkles and blemishes. We are often exposed to large amounts of UVA and UVB rays, especially in summer, that's why we need protection. We have to prepare our skin and our body by drinking a lot of water and we have to avoid going out during the hottest hours of the day (from 11 pm to 4 pm).
And, of course, remember to apply sunscreens :D
They contain SPF, that forms a barrier between our skin and those harmful rays, and there are different types of sunscreen on the market: for oily or sensitive skin, for kids, etc.
I recommend these ones:

-LA ROCHE-POSAY ANTHELIOS MINERAL TINTED ULTRA LIGHT SUNSCREEN FLUID SPF 50

This one has a mineral formula and contains a high SPF, so it is perfect for those of you who have light skin.

-AVENE HIGH PROTECTION MINERAL CREAM SPF 50

Get Ready For A Big Event: Tips and Tricks!

Hello everybody,
Need some great beauty tips? That's why I'm here for you! If you are looking forward to a specialoccasion and you want to be especially beautiful that day, then continue reading!
Just remember, do not aim for magazine-like perfection, and try these 7 beauty tips for big events that will make you feel more gorgeous and confident.

1. WASH YOUR HAIR THE DAY BEFORE

Do not wash your hair on the day of the event. I know that you want to have clean hair, but when it is a little greasy (ick), it holds better. If you are reading this on the day of an event, do not fret! You may just have to get a little more heavy handed with your hair spray.



2. SHAPE YOUR BROWS

Again, don't do this a couple of hours before the event, or else your browbone will be red! You don't want that, right? Shape your eyebrows two or three days before, so you don't have to worry about them!


3. PUT ICE-COLD CUCUMBER UNDERNEATH YOUR EYES

First of all, when you do this do not let the cucumb…
