14 SMART SKINCARE HACKS FOR GYM RATS

www.skinandlasers.com

  1. Use disposable body wipes or medicated/herbal wet tissues right after a workout. This will help in removing excess oil from your skin.
  2. Always carry a small towel with you to wipe the excess sweat.
  3. Avoid touching your facewith bare hands to keep bacterial infections and acne at bay.
  4. Use afoot deodorizer to clean your feet after a heavy workout.
  5. Skip the tanning bed. It’s harmful to your skin, in so many ways. There’s also the range of cosmetic skin concerns, like wrinkles and sun spots. Opt for a self-tanning lotion or simply working out outdoors with SPF will give you a natural glow.
  6. BYOT (Bring Your Own Towel!)If you opt for a gym washroom for a shower, be careful of the towels and cleansing products you use. Do not use towels already used by someone. The sweat of other people can cause acne on your skin. Cleaning your skin should be hygienic.
  7. Wear fresh clothes after showering.Also, avoid wearing gym clothes after washing yourself clean. Gym clothes will be sweaty and grimy; they may cause acne and other skin related problems.
  8. Avoid close contact.Other people’s sweat may also cause skin acne, pimples and other related problems. That hug to your trainer or gym buddy can end up triggering a breakout.
  9. Skip the hot water.Sure,your muscles are sore, and you’re in the mood for a hot shower after a workout. Hot water strips skin of vital oils, leaving you with dry, itchy, dull skin.
  10. Reduce the redness.Calm down a flushed face with your own redness control remedy made up of a little bit of iced green tea and a spray bottle. You’ll cool down your skin and add in a few extra anti-oxidants in the process.
  11. Rehydrate your skin.  After enduring a good workout and cleanse, it’s critical to re-establish the natural moisture and oils that have been removed from your skin.  When it comes to your face, you really should invest in a high quality, fast-absorbing, nutrient-rich product that includes vitamins A and E and the super-ingredient hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring compound that is expert at restoring moisture to your skin and has also been shown to stimulate collagen production. If you’ve been exercising outdoors, a moisturizer with anti-oxidant ingredients is important to help repair damage caused by UV exposure and other environmental factors.
  12. Go bare. Morning gym people there’s no need to apply make-up. If you work out after work consider taking a face-wipe to remove dirt, make-up which may blend with sweat triggering breakouts. You want your skin to be able to breathe while you’re working out.
  13. Wear a hairband.Hair should always be pulled back from your face, not only because of sweat, but because of your hair products, too. If you are seeing breakouts on your forehead or hairline, mousses, gels, or other hair products could be to blame. An elastic headband worn behind the ears about an inch from the hairline keeps stray hairs off the face.
  14. Wear gloves when working out.In addition to protecting hands from rough calluses, gloves also prevent the transmission of bacteria and viruses like warts and staphylococcus bacteria; which can cause impetigo. Impetigo is a common skin infection that can be easily transmitted at the gym and result in blisters and sores. If you choose not to wear gloves during a work-out, disinfect your equipment with a wipe or spray.

The Pros And Cons Of Solar Power

 

When you plan on installing solar power systems in your home, you’ll be choosing one of the best environment-friendly decisions! But of course, there are a few things to take note of before you make the decision. It’s best to know about what solar power has to offer, as well as the disadvantages. So read on as I show you the pros and cons of solar power!

The Pros of Solar Power

 

  • Reduce Electric Bills!

 

This is one of the main reasons people install solar power systems, as these would generate their own electricity and you won’t need to depend in electric utility. As a result, it reduces the monthly electric bill for decades, as they last for about 30 years. There can also be times you can totally eliminate the monthly electric bills!

 

  • Better Value for Your Properties

 

There are millions of people around the United States who would like to install solar panels in their home but have no idea or time to figure out how to install them, or to find companies to do the job. This is why the value of your home will rise because of the installation of solar panels, making it easier for you to sell your home with a good profit.

 

  • It Can Pay YOU Back

 

Did you know that there are solar incentives in the United States? Because of this, your solar panels will be able to give you profit, apart from saving on your electricity bills! Solar renewable energy credits, as well as net metering, will have you earn bill credits or money as the solar panel system produces electricity. It’s a great return of investment!

 

  • More Control On Costs

 

I’m sure you have felt anxiety when facing your electricity bills because you’ll never be able to control the increasing rates! The costs of solar power has decreased but electricity costs have increased, with the rise continuing as the years pass! That is why through solar power, you won’t have to worry about the rising costs anymore.

 

  • Environment-Friendly

 

This is another huge advantage for the whole world! Thanks to using solar power, you will be reducing carbon emissions and the use of fossil fuels. It’s a cost-effective way to help reduce carbon and help save the planet. Use of solar power will also help the United States become energy independent instead of relying on producers abroad.

 

The Cons of Solar Power

 

  • It’s Not For All Roofs

 

Unfortunately, your roof may not be compatible with solar system panels. This is because rooftop panels are installed through connecting mounting systems to the roof. Those with historical homes and have cedar or slate tiles for their roofs may find difficulty in installing the panels. Those who have homes with skylights of rooftop additions may find it expensive or difficult to install solar panels as well. Fortunately, there are solutions to that, such as ground mounted solar panels or having community solar gardens.

 

  • Not for Those Who Are Moving

 

Yes, the solar panels help increase value to your home but not so much that you’ll be able to pay it off once you move! For those who are moving homes in a short while, it’s not best to install solar panel systems as the payback period takes about eight years.

 

  • Low Electricity Costs = Low Solar Savings

 

If your electricity costs are already low to begin with, then you may not find much advantage on solar panels, as your solar savings will be low as well. Those who live in states with low electricity costs will feel like it is a waste to invest in solar panel systems, compared to those who live in states with higher electricity costs.

 

  • Expensive Costs and Difficult To Find Companies For Installment

 

If you are unable to avail solar financing, then you may have been discouraged from the front-up costs! It can get quite expensive and not all of us would have the cash to invest on solar panel systems. Fortunately, there are financing options you can avail.

Another con is the difficulty of finding reputable installers to work with, though extensive searches can help you find one many people in your town trust.

In Conclusion

Through being more knowledgeable on the advantages and disadvantages solar power has, you’ll be able t make the wise decision and see if this type of energy is best for your home or business. So if you are interested in installing solar power systems in your area, start to look for reputable companies who will be able to do so today!

 

I hope that this article on the pros and cons of solar power helped you know more about how this type of energy works and if it’s good for you. If you have any questions or would like to share your experiences on solar power, then comment down below. I would love to hear what you have to think.

Get The Look: Rita Ora at the 2018 Grammys

Celebrity Makeup Artist Kathy Jeung worked with Rita Ora for the 2018 Grammy Awards – below is a breakdown of the look!

Who: Rita Ora at the 2018 Grammy Awards
The Inspiration: With the classic shape of Ralph & Russo dress, Kathy wanted to keep the focus on Rita’s complexion and eyes – giving her skin a satin finish with a touch of radiance and highlighter to accentuate Rita’s bone structure, and a simple glossy eye with lashes that lift the outer corners.
How to Get the Look:
Lips
Kathy applied Rimmel London Stay Matte Liquid Lip Colour in Plum This Go to give Rita a dark, bold lip.
Skin
Kathy applied Rimmel London Lasting Finish Breathable Primer all over Rita’s cleansed, toned and moisturized face to keep makeup fresh and long-lasting, creating a smooth, pore minimized canvas for makeup. She then applied Rimmel London #Insta Conceal & Correct underneath Rita’s eyes, erasing dark circles. Next, Kathy applied Rimmel London Match Perfection Concealer in Light/Medium with her ring finger, in a tapping motion underneath the eyes to blend into the rest of Rita’s face. Kathy mixed Rimmel London Lasting Finish 25HR Foundation in 303 True Nude with small amount of Rimmel London Good to Glow Highlighter in 003 Soho Glow to give her skin luminosity, by applying it with a flat foundation brush in broad strokes over Rita’s face, and blended with a damp sponge, giving Rita a natural looking finish. Kathy set the foundation with Rimmel London’s #Insta Fix & Matte Translucent Powder, helping to keep Rita’s forehead, sides of the nose and cheeks shine-free.
Cheeks
Kathy used Rimmel London Kate Moss Sculpting & Highlighting Kit in Golden Sands to highlight the tops of Rita’s cheekbones, above her jawline and down length of her nose. She contoured the hollows under her cheekbones, just under her jawbone and under her chin using a narrow wedge brush and applied the blush using a rounded brush on the apples of her cheeks and extended towards temples.
Kathy finished up the cheeks by using Rimmel London’s Insta Duo Contour Stick to highlight along the tops of the cheekbones and blend with a damp sponge.
Eyes
Kathy applied the beige shade of the Rimmel London Magnif’Eyes Shadow Contouring Palette Blush Edition to the browbone and blended the matte taupe color into the crease. Then she applied Rimmel London’s ScandalEyes Eyeshadow Stick in Witness White to the inner corners of Rita’s eyes and blended for a trace of highlight. She then added Rimmel London Oh My Gloss in Clear to Rita’s eyelids to add a glossy, high shine. She lined Rita’s eyes using Rimmel London ScandalEyes Precision Micro Eyeliner in Black to create a very narrow wing along the lashline. To finish the eyes, she applied two coats of Rimmel London Shake It Fresh Mascara in Black to the upper lashes only to lengthen and thicken Rita’s lashes.
Brows
Kathy used Rimmel London Professional Eyebrow Pencil to fill in and extend Rita’s brow shape, followed by Rimmel London Brow This Way Brow Pomade in Medium to softly add color and keep the brow hairs in place. She finished the brows by applying Rimmel London Brow This Way Highlighting Pencil to lift the arches of the brow and add highlight to the brow bone.
Where to Find Them: Rimmel London products are available at chain drug stores and mass retailers nationwide. Visit www.RimmelLondon.com for store locations and to try the newest products with Rimmel London’s exclusive Get The Look App available on iTunes and Google Play.
