  BEAUTY DONTS - by Editor


Not everyone makes looking beautiful their priority. If you don't have the time to ensure you look your best everyday, make sure you at least have the basics right. Here are a few things you ought to pay attention to, so you make a smart, clean and polished impression.


Chipped Nail Polish

There is no excuse at all for stepping out with chipped nail polish. If your remover has run out, make sure you buy a new bottle before applying that deep pink polish. As soon as your nail polish starts chipping, which may be after around 3-4 days, either apply another coat or remove the polish. If you don't have the time to remove it, then by the same logic you shouldn't have the time to apply it either! If you are one of those people who are constantly distracted and running from pillar to post, have a hundred things to do and really don't even notice when your polish starts chipping, the best thing for you to do would be to apply a very light shade, so even if it starts chipping, it is not noticeable.


Untouched roots

If you have started getting white hair and if you colour your hair regularly, make it a point to touch up your roots regularly. Nothing looks worse than jet black hair with a line of white close to the scalp, near the parting. Also, when colouring your hair, you may want to alternate between two colours. This will give your hair a streaked effect, and it looks better and more natural than jet black. When dying your hair you may also want to consider an alternative to jet black. The market is flooded with numerous colours now, and you can choose from a variety of brown and mahogany shades. Alternating between mahogany and brown is a good idea.


Frizzy hair

With numerous ways to combat frizzy hair there is no reason to step out without first taming your hair. Never leave frizzy hair open. If your hair is looking particularly frizzy, tie it up after applying 3-4 drops of oil mixed with water. This will tame frizz. Similarly, if your hair is long, wavy and is thinning from the bottom, never leave it open without curling the ends. This gives body to the ends.


Hairy upperlip

Anyone can get behind on their threading appointment, and this leaves a slight greenish tinge on the upperlip. In the event of this happening, just apply a touch of concealor on your upperlip area. It will help conceal the green colour somewhat. Long hair on the upperlip area is one of the biggest beauty faux pases ever. Always, always thread, wax or bleach the hair on your upperlip area. You could also consider getting it removed permanently by laser, which will cost you between 5,000 to 7,000. If you are regular with hair removal, you don't need to worry about this, but if getting your upperlip done is really a hassle, you should consider saving up for a laser treatment. Remember, the laser does not work on white hair, so if you keep putting it off, you may need to keep threading your upperlip well into your eighties!

Comments:   you could just use a depilatory .... like nair for the upper lip..... its pain free and done in ten minutes.... much safer than threading and waxing! and not all indians can bleach so this is the best bet

Comments:   im of mixed nationalities, half arabian and half african and ever since i was little, ppl tell me i look like an indian... so sharing some of my experiences, with the upper lip hair i started off using depilatory creams like nair and veet but truthfully they began to grow back like i had shaved, then the bleaching period, in which the resulting blond hair contrasted so much with my skin color that it was obvious i had bleached em, especially in the sun! then there was the threading period, which was just too painful and grew back slowly so inbetween removel, my upperlip looked green.... the best way to get rid of upper lip hair is waxing, its fast, removes the hair from the roots so it takes longer to grow back and grows back soft and can remove even the shortest hair... i give waxing a thumbs up!

Comments:   Hi all, I do threading on my upperlip, if u learn it its easier,and hair doesn't grow hard as after waxing its really hard. If it turns red or green massage a little immediately after threading your upperlip. Bleaching is also a good option but not if your hair is long n thick also its noticable. i suggest threading is good for all types of skin and colour even for full face. so try out if u want u can switch back to bleaching. For me threading is the best! Cheers!!

Comments:   i've bin threading 4 almost a year and only recently i realised my upper lip has got a slight green tinge.I thought if you remove all the hair that wont be the case because when i first started threading that area was much lighter. Does anybody think that waxing is better? i'v never tried it but scared of a reaction and my skin is xtremly fair so i don't want it to get any darker. wat r hair removal creams like? if anybody can help email me plz at babu27@hotmail.co.uk (ma bst friends add coz myn iz hacked) thanks i wud realy appreciate it and ps this site iz wiked

Comments:   try a homeade cream of boiled milk w half a lime for upper lip hairs it doesn´t make it blonde like bleaching does it make the hairs thinner and the color slightly lighter it cleans your face good and leaves it really soft so try it but you have to leave it in for 20 min.

Comments:   I had very thick hair on my upper lip plucking and then laser treatments ended up discoloring the skin but the hair grew back. I finally got electorlysis. This is when they kill each follicle using a needle carrying an electric current. It was a little painful, and I had to go for treatments for almost a year, but now my lip is hair free forever, with no scarring or discoloration (the discoloration from tweezing and laser has even faded). I don´t recommend any other way of dealing with lip hair. It´s a huge relief not to have to even think about it anymore.
