Beauty Enhancers With a Subtle Touch of Fragrance

It is a well known fact that nature bestows beauty upon its creations in an innately uncomplicated way. However beauty enhancers like cosmetics and other products have ruled the roost in the cosmetics industry, since ages. A majority of the populace across the globe are lapping up beauty products with an uncanny ease that would take you by surprise. Among the most loved beauty products of all time, is the Perfume.

Ever imagined food without aroma or household products lacking the fragrance which almost justify their purpose? What would a bathing soap smell like without the characteristic perfume? Would you like to use a floor cleaner devoid of any fragrance? You can well imagine the importance of fragrance when it concerns self grooming.

Perfume therefore has become an integral part of our lives and its origin according to research dates back to 1000BC when the Egyptians incorporated it into their culture. This was followed by the Chinese, Hindus, Carthaginians, Arabs, Greeks, and Romans.

Depending on the composition of fragrances, they are classified as

  • Perfume
  • Eau de Parfum
  • Eau de Toilette
  • Eau de Cologne

The costliest form of fragrance is perfume, with 22% of essential oils and the least expensive is the Eau de Cologne with a meager 4% of essential oils.

Perfumes not only constitute the beauty enhancing component but have been used as an accessory, a mood enhancer and its therapeutic utility dates back to the twentieth century. Aroma therapy has since emerged as a new age healing technology.

The most famous luxury brands of fragrances are Elizabeth Arden, Calvin Klein, Eau De Cartier and Nina Ricci. If you are looking for affordable brands then perfumes/deodorants from Nike, Adidas, Revlon, Omani, Jovan Musk and certain fragrances endorsed by stars are a must have. Perfumes and deodorants endorsed by celebrities are in vogue especially among the youth.

In the Indian market, the highly affordable deodorants have an edge over perfumes, due to novelty, better consumption, changing trends, affordability and diverse branding that is innate to cost effective perfumes. Perfumes are indeed accessories that speak volumes about a person's tastes. Lately it has become a criterion for the assessment of an individual's style quotient.

You may procure the perfume of your choice at a physical store. But e-shopping is certainly the most convenient and sought after process for procuring commodities. A shopper gets to see a wide array of perfumes, deodorants and cologne sprays, all within the same site. The collection ranges from customary, regular wear perfumes, to exotic designer perfumes, you name it and you are bound to find it here. Apart from buying these exotic fragrances for self, one could also procure them as gifts for several occasions.

The next time you want to purchase a bottle of perfume, and wish to compare the prices for the diverse brands available, trust online marts. You may end up getting best buys at astonishingly discounted rates. Wish to procure perfume as a gift? No points for guessing the best place to shop

Advice on Beauty and Skincare the Natural Way

What makes a women tick now and days is the fact that women in ancient times are no different to the present day. As a mater of fact they use to go to great lengths to stay beautiful and well groomed. In fact people in general go to great lengths to stay young and with stand the ageing processes. And science is vastly gaing knowledge over time, but still that is not enough nature still has the upper hand on that score.

It's strange though we all tend to believe in a strange sense that nature and science will come together at one point in time, this decade or the next to fashion a cure or remedies , that will slow or even reverse the ageing clock considerably. So in short we do not have to worry.
That would be nice but unfortunately we do not have this as a necessity in life so we have to make do with what is available to use today. For example research hands on anti ageing practices such as exfoliation of the skin, which helps to prevent oily skin. I would like to provide you with a few skins care tips of my own which are backed up by hands on research and plain and simple facts.

Use plenty of water on you face and mostly water based products, using oil based creams create a surplus of oil on the skin and that in my opinion cause the skin to become unhealthy and cultivate a breading ground for spots and acne. Another good skin care tip is to keep your face clear of all make up especially in the summer as that is a time when the skin is more in need of more water because of the temperature.

Use more moisturiser cream tackle this problem, moisturizing the face is good for the skin and also produces great skin and this in turn will produce the natural look all round good skin practice. But if a little make up is needed then a little blush may be appropriate in my view and maybe some natural lipstick.

You must not go to sleep with make up on your face it must be removed at all times.
Mainly with the use of a facial cleanser, all cosmetics should be removed preferably with cleansing milk. This skin care advice is crucial.

If you do not use make up it is still important to cleanse your face thoroughly before going to bed as it prevents acne.

And finally use an estrangement to close the skin pores so you don't gather any unwanted dust particles so precious pores will not get clogged.
And that ladies is skin care my way.

The Beauty And Health Of Women

The issue of beauty and health of women are related to each other. This will include the relation of health to cosmetics, safety measures to be adopted during manicure, dark circles that appear below the eyes, etc. There are different safety concerns that need to be taken into account while talking about the relation between health and beauty in women. Especially in case of cosmetics safety measures need to be understood. Cosmetics include products for make up and hair and other products that are used on the human body.

Let's consider one issue where health and beauty are related to each other. Pregnant women often wonder if they can use hair care products like hair dye. It is a matter of concern as to whether such products will cause damage to the baby. The level of safety during the use of hair dye on pregnant women is questionable. The body is able to absorb very little of the hair dye that is applied. So, it is not likely that the chemicals which are absorbed by the system will harm the baby. It would be better to consult a health care professional about the use of hair dye during pregnancy.

Another case where a relation between health and beauty arises is the aging of skin. Changes begin to appear in the skin when people begin to grow old. Changes in skin arising due to increase in age are thinning of skin as well as wrinkles. Sometimes, the skin begins to sag. The skin provides protection against the environment. Regulation of body temperature is enabled by the skin. The skin can be divided into layers. Changes in skin may occur due to certain environmental conditions, nutritional factors and genetic factors. However, exposure to sun is the most important factor causing changes in the skin.

Older women can experience some skin disorders. Other diseases such as heart or liver diseases, diabetes can result in skin disorders. Obesity or stress can cause skin disorders. Skin disorders could occur due to chemical exposure or due to allergies. Exposure to sun can result in skin cancer. Sun problems can be prevented by undertaking some measures. Sunburn should be avoided. Use of sunscreen and protective clothing is necessary. Lotions should be used regularly to maintain the moisture of the skin. Thus, the health and beauty of women are definitely related.

More recently anti ageing creams have been manufactured which can retain younger looking skin for many years. The best cleansing agents are cleansing cream, soap and water. Cosmetic creams serve as a skin food for hard, dry and chapped skin. It mainly lubricates, softens and removes unwanted dirt from the skin.

Aging, Beauty, and Grace

We live in a society obsessed with youth. Children long to grow up into young men or women as quickly as possible. People on the other side of the youth slot try to cling to it by every possible means. Those who are in the slot live in the illusion that time would stand still. Time is one of the most abused concepts in daily life. We say time flies, time passes by, time runs out etc. But time does nothing of the sort, time just is. It is we the objects in space that pass in time, forced to go only in one direction from moment to moment. We cannot go faster, we cannot go slower.

We also have this persistent illusion of associating beauty with youth. But beauty is not only physical, it has other aspects to it. There is beauty in walking, in smiling, and in fact in everything we do. That is what used to be called grace, when grace was still an admired concept. There is beauty in poetry, in music, and in any kind of self-expression. And that beauty is not affected by time.

It is the physical beauty - the outward appearance that changes with time. We see this happening in nature all the time. Everything in the universe has a life span, some long, some short. Flowers, for example, bloom and fade away in a matter of days. Their beauty is ephemeral but in that short time span they impart grace and serenity to the world. There is more to the beauty of the flower than its physical appearance. In William Blake's words one can "see the heaven in a wild flower".

There is another form of beauty that reflects the whole personality. It is grace and pertains to movement, expression, and general behavior. There was a time when grace was an admired concept and a necessary adjunct to physical beauty. It seems that glamour has now taken its place. Grace is not affected by age, it may even get enhanced.

Life itself is a process of aging. We do not recognize it as aging until we get to a certain stage, because we are conditioned to think in terms of growth and decay. But it is a continuous process and it is irreversible; we don't have any control over it. Yet many people don't accept this fact and do everything possible to look younger. Looking younger and being young are two different things. There is no product in the billion-dollar burgeoning cosmetic industry that can shave off years from one's age. However, feeling younger is something that has nothing to do with the body and is within everyone's grasp.

The key to truly understand the aging process is to realize the significance of the expression 'my body'. The word 'my' implies possession and anything I possess is different from I. So the body is my dwelling just as my house is. Each one of us is a tiny part of the universal consciousness that is the substratum of all that exists in the universe. Consciousness is eternal, it is not born and it does not die. If that realization comes, one is beyond aging.

However, just as we have to take care of the house we live in and maintain it according to our aesthetic tastes, we have to take care of the body as well. Here again the individual choices come into play in deciding the relative importance of how others see us and how we see ourselves. In the final analysis though, what matters is our own satisfaction with what we are.
