What Really Happens When You Sleep With Your Makeup On / Ce Se Intampla De Fapt Cand Dormi Cu Machiajul



Toate suntem vinovate de faptul ca am dormit o data sau de mai multe ori cu machiajul inca pe fata. Chiar daca motivul ar fi o saptamana grea de munca sau prea multe cocktail-uri, petrecand o noapte cu fondul nostru de ten sau rimelul preferat, pare  nedaunator si nu se intampla in fiecare zi, nu? Total gresit! Se pare ca acesta greseala de fata lenesa poate face daune serioase pielii tale, si da , chiar daca se intampla o data la nu stiu cat timp.
Cu cat dormi mai mult cu machiajul, cu atat mai multe sunt daunele provocate pielii tale. Pielea noastra, ca restul corpului, functioneaza pe ritmul circadian. Noaptea functia cea mai importanta a pielii este sa se regenereze. Purtand fond de ten si machiaj noaptea, impiedica procesul regenerarii, cauzand daune pielii.
(We’re all guilty of having slept in our makeup once or twice. Whether the cause was an exhausting work week or a few too many cocktails, spending the occasional night with our favorite foundation or mascara seems harmless enough provided it isn’t happening on the regular … right? Wrong. It turns out that this oft-committed lazy girl mistake can do some serious damage to your skin—yes, even if it only happens once in a while.
The more you sleep while wearing your makeup, the greater the damage there is to your skin. Our skin, like the rest of our body, functions on the circadian rhythm. At night the skin’s most important function is to renew itself. Wearing makeup and foundation at night prevents the renewal process, causing damage to the skin.)

Dar atunci cand purtam putin machiaj? Un anume produs in particular face diferenta?
(What about light makeup days? Does one product in particular make the most difference?)

Fond De Ten / Foundation

Fondul de ten este gros si in general se suprapune cu alte produse car au fost pe fata toata ziua. Particulele mari si pigmentii se descompun pe parcursul zilei și au fost expuse și metabolizate prin procese naturale, precum și expunerea la poluanti de mediu si bacterii, mucegaiuri, acarieni și din exterior. Produsele secundare metabolice, precum și descompunerea machiajului în sine, preven rolul important al microcirculatiei, care ajuta la reinnoirea pielii. Aceasta poate rezulta in descompunerea colagenului, rezultand ridurile, porii infundati, care pastreaza bacteriile si rezulta in acnee.
(Foundation is thick and is generally overlying other products which have been on all day. The large particles and pigments break down over the day and have been exposed and metabolized by natural processes as well as exposure to environmental pollutants and bacteria, molds, and mites from the outside. The metabolic byproducts, as well as the breakdown of the makeup itself, prevent the important role of microcirculation, which helps renew skin. This can result in the breakdown of collagen, resulting in wrinkles, and clogged pores which hold onto bacteria and result in acne.)


Primerul are potentialul de a face rau pielii, dar depinde in totalitate de cum il porti. Daca primerul a fost pe fata toata ziua, este foarte daunator deoarece toti poluantii sunt inca in pielea ta. Daca este intins pe pielea proaspat curatata si folosit pe post hidratant, atunci e ok.
(Primer does have the potential to harm your skin, but it depends entirely on how you wear it. If the primer has been on all day, it’s very damaging because all the pollutants are still on your skin. If it’s smoothed on freshly cleansed skin and used for moisture, then it’s okay.)

Ruj / Lipstick

Nici o surpriza aici, dormind in orice fel de ruj, va rezulta in uscarea si decojirea buzelor. Cu rujurile foarte pigmentate, freaca buzele cu un servetel demachiant pentru a-l inlatura complet inainte de a te baga la somn, apoi aplica un strat generos de balsam de buze pentru a le rehidrata.
(No surprise here. sleeping with any type of lipstick will result in dryness and chapping. With highly-pigmented lipsticks, scrub the lips with a cleansing wipe to fully remove before bed, then apply a generous coat of balm to build moisture back up.)

Rimel / Mascara

Daca esti genul de fata care isi lasa machiajul pe ochi peste noapte pentru a obtine acel look dezordonat prin mijloace oneste, ar trebui sa te asezi pentru asta. Particulele de rimel infunda foliculii si ii irita, cum ar face pe piele. Daca se irita, umflaturile pot causa blefarita si bacteria poate cauza conjunctivita cu cat sta mai mult. Daca asta nu e destul de terifiant, dormind cu rimelul pe gene ,le poate slabi si rupe.
(If you’re the kind of girl who leaves her eye makeup on to get the “slept-in” look through honest means, you may want to sit down for this one. Mascara particles clog the follicles and irritates them as it would on the skin. If irritation occurs, the swelling can cause blepharitis and the bacteria can cause conjunctivitis the longer it stays. If that isn’t terrifying enough, sleeping with your mascara on can also cause the eyelashes to become brittle and break easily.)

Doar pentru ca suntem constiente de cat de rau este sa dormim cu machiajul nu inseamna ca suntem scutite de noptile lenese cand tot ce vrem sa facem este sa ne asezam in pat, cu fond de ten si toate cele. Tine servetele demachiante langa pat. In acest mod, atunci cand te bagi in pat iti amintesti sa iti cureti machiajul si trebuie doar sa te intinzi la noptiera si sa ti-l stergi.
(Just because we’re more aware of exactly how bad sleeping in our makeup is doesn’t mean we’re spared from those lazy nights when all we want to do is crawl into bed, foundation and all. Keep makeup remover wipes at your bedside. This way, when you get into bed it reminds you to remove your makeup simply by reaching over to your night table and wiping it away. )

11 Affordable Pieces That Make You Look Stylish / 11 Piese Accesibile Care Te Fac sa Arati Stilata

Sunt mereu la vanatoare de modalitati noi pentru a face o tinuta sa arate mai chic, eleganta si da, sa para mai scumpa, dar nimic nu este mai bun decat sa obtii toate trei calitatile fara sa cheltuiesti in plus. Astazi o sa-ti arat 11 din obiectele mele preferate, care te vor face sa arati, si cel mai important, sa te simti imbracata ca de un milion de dolari.
(I’m always on the hunt for ways to make an outfit look more chic, elegant, and yes, expensive-looking, but nothing’s better than being able to achieve all three qualities without having to overspend. Today, I’m bringing you 11 of my favorite items that will make you look, and more importantly, feel like a million bucks.)


Tricou de Calitate / High-Quality Tee

Chiar daca cheltuind un pic mai multi bani pe un tricou poate suna prosteste, un stil facut cu adevarat bine poate face o mare diferenta.
(While spending a bit of extra money on a plain t-shirt might sound silly, a truly well-made style can make a huge difference.)

Camasa de Matase / Silk Shirt

O camasa de matase se simte la fel de luxoasa cum se vede. In timp ce sunt o multime care costa peste 300 ron, nu este greu sa gasesti camasi chic cu buget redus.
(A silk shirt feels as luxe as it looks. While there are plenty that cost more than a $100, it’s not hard to find chic, budget-friendly options.)

Bijuterii Personalizate / Personalized Jewelry

O bijuterie personalizata cu numele tau, initialele, sau mostenita pare de calitate. Mie imi plac mai ales cele delicate, finute care dau tinutei o atingere eleganta.
(A piece of jewelry that’s been personalized with your name, initials, or the like inherently has a high-quality feel. I especially love delicate pieces to give your outfit that extra intentional touch.)

Pelerina / Cape

Pentru ca, sincer, cine nu se simte eleganta intr-o pelerina (nu de ploaie)?
(Because, honestly, who doesn’t feel classy in a cape?)


Pantaloni de ,,Piele” / “Leather” Pants

Atata timp cat alegi o pereche care ti se potriveste bine, si au o atingere placuta, pantaloinii de piele falsa iti pot imbunatati tinuta la fel ca o pereche din piele adevarata.
(As long as you pick a pair that fits well and has a nice feel, faux leather pants can elevate your outfit just as well as the real deal.)

Palton / Long Coat

Un palton lung ,usor este destul de versatil de purtat peste orice , incepand de la o rochie de cocktail, pana la blugii prietenului (boyfriend jeans). Peste orice l-ai pune, o sa te ajute sa iti imbunatatesti tinuta un pic mai mult.
(A long, lightweight coat is versatile enough to wear over anything from a cocktail dress to boyfriend jeans. No matter what you layer it over, it will always help pull your outfit together a little more.)

Esarfa de Matase / Silk Scarf

O esarfa de matase este un accesoriu nemuritor care adauga instant o pata de eleganta look-ului tau, purtata ori la gat ori legata de manerul gentii.
(A silk scarf is a timeless accessory that instantly adds an elegant touch to your look, whether it’s worn around your neck or tied around your purse handle.)

Gentuta / Tiny Bag

Poate ca nu sunt practice dar acest motiv face ca gentutele sa para scumpe, atata timp cat o alegi pe cea buna. Daca ai bugetul redus, cauta ceva structurat dintr-un material in relief sau metalic .
(They may not be practical, but for that reason, tiny bags have a tendency to look expensive—as long as you pick the right one. If you’re on a budget, look for a something structured in an embossed or metallic material.)

Ochelari Supradimensionati / Oversized Sunglasses

De ce ochelarii extra mari fac o tinuta sa para scumpa? Poate pentru ca multe fete faimoase si-au acoperit ochii cu acest accesoriu stilat si exagerat. Oricare ar fi motivul, ei transmit un vibe puternic fara îndoiala, si sunt usor de gasit pe un buget redus.
(Why do oversized sunglasses make an outfit look expensive? Perhaps it’s because so many famous faces have shielded their eyes with the stylish, exaggerated accessory. Whatever the reason, they convey an unquestionably powerful vibe, and they’re easy to find on a budget!)

Ceas / Watch

Telefoanele au facut ca ceasurile sa devina fara folos, asa ca aceste obiecte de timp au devenit mai degraba o declaratie de fashion decat o necesitate. In timp ce un ceas de designer il apreciem pentru maiestrie, poti obtine un stil mai ieftin pentru a adauga un pic de sofisticatie look-ului tau.
(Cell phones have pretty much rendered watches useless, so the timepieces are now more of a fashion statement than a necessity. While we appreciate a designer watch for its craftsmanship, you can snag a less-costly style to lend some sophistication to your look.)

Clutch cu Print de Sarpe / Snake-Print Clutch

Printul texturat de sarpe pare exotic si clasic in acelasi timp.  Iti sugerez sa adaugi un clutch cu print de sarpe in colectia ta, pentru o doza de luxuritate.
(Textured snake print feels exotic and classic at the same time. I suggest adding a snake-print clutch to your collection for a dose of luxury.)

Makeup Tips for girls with glasses / Sfaturi de Machiaj Pentru Fetele cu Ochelari

Daca nu stii cum sa porti machiaj cand ai ochelari, sunt aici sa te provoc sa iti schimbi perspectiva . Purtati cu machiaj care complementeaza (si nu concureaza cu ) ramele, ochelarii pot fi unul din cele mai flatante si elegante accesorii la indemana. Iata cateva sfaturi utile sa le tii minte cand iti vei purta perechea de ochelari.
(If you don’t know how to apply makeup when you wear glasses I’m here to challenge you to change your perspective on specs. Worn with makeup that complements (not competes with) your frames, eye glasses can be one of the most flattering—and stylish—accessories at your disposal. Here are a few useful tips to keep in mind when sporting your pair.)

1. Concentreaza-te pe ochi / Focus on the Eyes

Tinzi sa crezi ca daca ochelarii atrag atentia la ochi ,nu-ti trebuie machiaj , dar de fapt opusul e  adevarat. Te incurajez sa iti scoti in evidenta ochii si mai mult decat normal,  pentru a profita din plin de efectul ramelor pe care le au ochelarii. Asa ca incearca acel cat eye indraznet pe care il visezi de mult , perfectioneaza-ti aplicatia fardului de pleoape , si bucura-te de toata atentia pe care o atragi la ochelarii tai superbi. Daca ai rame puternice poti scapa cu un machiaj mai puternic.
(You may think that because glasses draw attention to your eyes, you don’t need eye makeup, but the opposite is true. I’d encourage you to play up your eyes even more than normal, to make the most of the eye-framing effect your glasses have. So go for that bold cat eye you’ve been dreaming about, perfect your eye shadow application, and enjoy all the extra attention on your gorgeous specs. If you have strong frames, you can get away with stronger make-up.)

2. Foloseste tonuri calde / Stay Warm
Culorile cu tonuri gri pot reflecta in umbrele care vin de la rame, facandu-te sa pari obosita si monotona. Evita culorile reci, tinand orice fard cald si proaspat pentru un impact foarte frumos. Culoarea fardului de pleoape nu trebuie sa concureze cu cea a ramelor ochelarilor. Daca vrei sa aplici aceeasi culoare ca a ramelor si pe pleoape , incearca o baza care este cu cateva tonuri mai deschisa, si incearca un fard cu cateva tonuri mai inchis in pliu.
(Grey-toned shadows can mirror any shadows created by your specs, leaving you looking tired and dull. Avoid the cooler colors, keeping any shadows warm and fresh for the most beautiful impact.The colour of your eye shadow shouldn’t compete with the colour of your glasses. If you want to do the same colour as your frames on your eyelids, try a base hue that’s a shade lighter, and go a few shades darker for the crease colour.)

3. Aminteste-ti de sprancene / Remember Your Brows

Depinzand de stilul ramelor , ochelarii iti pot scoate in evidenta si sprancenele, deci fii sigura sa le adaugi un pic de atentie. Daca nu stii cum vezi video-ul meu despre cum sa-ti faci sprancene perfecte : .  Facand aceasta te asiguri ca ochelarii nu iti vor suprasolocita fata.
(Depending on the style of your frames, glasses can also put your brows on display, so be sure to give them a little extra TLC. If you haven’t already, check out my video on how to perfect eyebrows. This will ensure that your glasses don’t overpower your face)

4. Acopera cearcanele / Conceal, Conceal, Conceal

Ochelarii fac o umbra, deci este mult mai important decat deobicei sa acoperi cearcanele cu un anticearcan care nu se strange. Eu recomand Maybelline Instant Age-Rewind Concealer .
(Glasses cast a shadow, so it’s even more important than usual to cover under eye circles with a non-creasing concealer. I recomend Maybelline Instant Age-Rewind Concealer.)

5. Renunta la liniute / Ditch the Indents

Daca ochelarii tai lasa urme si linii pe fondul de ten, schimba-l pe cel lichid cu unul mineral precum L’Oréal True Match Naturale Mineral Foundation. Consistenta sa usoara, vor limita acele urme de frecare.
(If your glasses leave you with indents and marks in your foundation, swap out your liquid foundation for a mineral powder option—like L’Oréal True Match Naturale Mineral Foundation. The lightweight consistency will limit those pesky dents.)

6. Buze Stridente / Get Lippy

Trecand peste fardul ochilor, in favoarea anticearcanului si a catorva straturi de mascara combinate cu niste buze in culori indraznete , este un look chic care nu poate face rau. Foloseste rimel waterproof pentru a nu se intinde pe lentile. Daca ramele tale sunt delicate sau in culori nude, nu lasa machiajul sa-ti suprasolicite ramele. Alege culori moi ca farduri si creeaza definitie cu un dermatograf negru sau maro.
(Skipping shadows in favor of concealer and a few coats of mascara—combined with a pretty,punchy pout—is a chic, ultra modern look that can do no wrong! Use waterproof mascara as it won’t smudge on your lenses. If your frames are delicate, or in a nude shade, don’t let your make-up overpower your frames. Choose softer colours for shadow and create definition with a dark liner and mascara.)

5 Hair Trends for Fall 2014 / 5 Trenduri ale Parului pentru Toamna anului 2014

Viata este prea scurta (si prea ocupata) pentru a ne fixa pe fiecare dintre trendurile trecatoare ale sezoanelor, as prefera sa ma axez pe trendurile care ,cred eu, sunt aici sa ramana. Iata cinci dintre trendurile toamnei ale anului 2014 care nu sunt neaparat ,,trendy” dar care au puterea de sedere care merita stapanite.In cazul in care ai nevoie de convingere, sunt de asemenea incredibil de simple.
(Life is too short (and, let’s face it, too busy) to fixate on each season’s fleeting trends—I’d rather focus on the looks that I think are here to stay.
Here are five hair trends for fall 2014 that aren’t necessarily “trendy”—they’ve got the kind of staying power that makes them worth mastering. In case you needed more convincing, they’re also incredibly simple!)

Ballerina Buns/ Cocurile de Balerina
Ezit sa ma refer la cocul de balerina ca pe un trend, din moment ce acest look versatil nu pleaca nicaieri. Pe podiumuri, in acest sezon cocurile au predominat de la inalte si stranse la joase (spre ceafa capului )si usor ,,linse” pe spate. Pentru fata grabita, cocul de balerina e un salvator de timp, arata la fel de bine atat dupa a doua zi dupa spalare cat si de-abia spalat. Daca trebuie sa fii undeva in 15 minute si tocmai ai iesit din dus, incearca sa iti strangi parul la spate cu degetele si sa-i invarti lungimea inainte sa-l prinzi cu o omiduta. Daca ai un pic de textura cu care sa lucrezi, aplica un pic de sampon uscat la radacini inainte sa-l prinzi sus pentru un efect dezordonat.
(I hesitate to refer to the ballerina bun as a trend, since this versatile look isn’t going anywhere. On the runway, this season’s buns varied from high and tight to low (toward the nape of the neck) and slightly slicked back. For the girl on the go, the ballerina bun is a life saver—it looks just as polished on second-day hair as it does on still-damp, freshly-washed strands. If you have somewhere to be in 15 minutes and you’ve just stepped out of the shower, try raking back your hair with your fingers and twisting the lengths before securing with a hairband. If you’ve got a bit of texture to work with, spritz dry shampoo at the roots before you put it up for a messier effect.)

Carari pe Mijloc /Center Parts
Daca vreodata un hairstylist ti-a zis ca , cararile pe mijloc sunt doar pentru cele cu fata perfect simetrica (desi nu o are nimeni) atunci stii cat de intimidant poate parea acest stil. Gandeste-te mai bine : secretul acestei carari de toamna nu este simetria perfecta, dar mai degraba o usoara deraiere, un vibe imperfect. Admit ca look-ul arata mai bine pe cele care au parul intr-o singura lungime sau suvite mai lungi in fata opusul celor cu breton scurt, dar tine minte ca secretul este sa eronezi doar un pic intr-o parte. Rezultatul poate fi de la super lins la dezordonat inspiratie grunge.
(If you’ve ever had a hairstylist tell you that center parts are only for those with perfectly symmetrical features (and haven’t we all?), then you’ll know just how intimidating the style may seem. Think again: The secret to this fall’s center part is not perfect symmetry, but rather a slightly off-center, imperfect vibe. Admittedly, the look works best on those who have hair that’s all one length, or long layers in the front as opposed to those who have shorter bangs, but keep in mind that the key is to err ever so slightly onto one side. The resulting look can range anywhere from super sleek to tousled and slightly grunge-inspired.)

Nu este nici o situatie (pe care sa o stiu) in care o impletitura grozava sa para nedemna. Stilurile de impletitura din sezonul acesta iau tot felul de forme, dela scolarita dezordonata la impletitura frontala mai-usor-de-zis-decat-de-facut. Daca cauti sa intri in trend, nu poti sa gresesti cu o singura si clasica impletitura pe spate. Daca vrei sa fii mai aventuroasa- si desigur ca vrei, din cand in cand- inceraca sa refashionezi coada standard jumate impletita in sus integrand coada de peste in partea de sus. Look-ul este proaspat si neasteptat, dar este destul de subtil ca sa mearga perfect pentru toate ocaziile .
(There is no situation (that I’m aware of) in which a great braid seems inappropriate. This season’s braided styles take all manner of forms, from a mussed-up schoolgirl plait to an easier-said-than-done front braid. If you’re looking to get in on the trend, you simply cannot go wrong with one single classic braid down the back of your head. If you want to get more adventurous—and of course you do, every once in a while!—try refashioning the standard half-up ponytail by integrating a fishtail into the top portion. The look is fresh and unexpected, but it’s still subtle enough to work perfectly for any and all occasions.)

Lins pe Spate/Slicked Back
Doar lumea modei poate face parul ud, lins pe spate sa arate chic si de asemenea a fost un bonus pentru acelea dintre noi care suntem obisnuite sa consumam (mult) mai putin timp cu parul nostru. Trend-ul lins pe spate din toamna aceasta este facut chic de catre contextul sau care se poate spune ca poate parea gras lins in fata, si coada fiind uscata si stilizata. Ca sa reusesti sa faci look-ul corect lucreaza un pic de gel in partea din fata aproape de radacini si baga suvitele drepte dupa ureche pentru un stil care nu pare gras.Alternativ, poti sa folosesti gel ca sa-ti intinzi tot parul la spate intr-un coc de balerina .
(Only the world of the runway could make damp, slicked-back hair look chic—and it’s certainly been a boon for those of us looking to spend (a lot) less time on our hair. This fall’s slicked back hair trend is made chic by its context—which is to say that it’s a greasy, slick-looking front, offset by dry, styled lengths. To get the look right, work a dab of gel into the front sections of your hair closest to your hairline and tuck the slick strands behind your ears for a style that doesn’t read greasy. Alternatively, you can use gel to slick all your hair back into a ballerina bun.)

Cozi de cal / Ponytails

Depinzand de cum e asezata, o coada simpla poate fi purtata de la sala de fitness la un eveniment la costum. Versiunea acestui sezon este decisiv mai eleganta, ori are incorporata rasucituri complicate si noduri sau o simpla carare pe o parte, purtata cu o omiduta contrastanta. Pentru a te asigura ca atingerea ta in aceasta coada arata cu stil, decat ca si cand de-abia te-ai dat jos de pe bicicleta,sa spunem, aplica o picatura de ser de stralucire pe lungime si varfuri inainte de a prinde coada jos la spate. Apoi ia o suvita si invarte-o in jurul bazei cozii si prinde-o cu o agrafa dedesubt.
(Depending on how it’s styled, a simple ponytail can run from spin class-ready to black tie-appropriate. This season’s version is decidedly more dressed up, whether it involves incorporating intricate twists and knots or simply a deep side part, paired with a contrasting hair tie. To ensure that your take on a ponytail looks stylish—rather than, say, like you just hopped off a bike—smooth a dab of shine serum into your lengths and ends before pulling the whole thing back into a low-slung pony.Take a small section and wrap it around the base of the ponytail, then pin to conceal your handiwork.)

Skin Care Tips For Your 20’s / Sfaturi de Ingrijire a Pielii La 20 De Ani

Inainte sa desfaci un alt pai, stiai ca tuguind buzele imprejurul unui pai de baut iti poate cauza riduri? Daca vrei sa minimizezi semnele imbatranirii, sunt cateva obiceiuri care trebuie sa le stapanesti devreme. La 20 de ani oamenii cred ca sunt invincibili, si ca nu o sa imbatraneasca niciodata, dar atunci este  de fapt timpul sa iti  intre in obisnuinta unele obiceiuri bune pentru a te tine intreaga viata. Mai jos o sa gasesti secretele mentinerii acelui ten tanar si stralucitor `pentru mai mult timp. Si cand vine vorba de piele 30-ul e noul 20 pana la urma.

(Before you unwrap another straw, did you know that pursing your lips around one actually causes wrinkles? If you want to minimize the signs of aging, there are a few habits you need to master early on. In their 20s, people think they’re invincible and that they’re never going to age, but that is when you really need to develop good habits, because it will last you a lifetime. Below you’ll find the secrets to maintaining that youthful glow for longer. So when it comes to your skin, maybe 30 is the new 20 after all.)

1. Nu e niciodata prea devreme sa incepi sa imbtranesti. Ce inseamna probabil ca deja citesti asta prea tarziu.  Mereu spun cu cat mai devreme cu atat mai bine, pentru ca daca stii ca o sa trebuiasca sa ai grja de linii atunci ar fi mai bine sa incepi mai deveme. Primul pas este sa incepi sa folosesti protectie solara cu spectrumul larg, care iti va proteja pielea impotriva imbatranirii cauzate de razele UV.

  ( 1. It’s never too early to start antiaging. Which probably means you’re reading this too late. I always say the sooner the better because if you know you’re going to care about lines then you might as well start sooner. The first step is using a broad-spectrum sunscreen, which will protect you against aging caused by the sun’s UV rays.)

2. Chiar daca folosesti produse anti-aging tot imbatranesti. Iata cateva vesti rele: pierdem totul odata cu inaintarea in varsta, din pacate, deci nu este cale de scapare. O sa pierzi colagen si tesutul eleasticizat si pielea ta se va lasa. Pielea se va intari si pigmentul nu va mai fi atat de egal. De asemenea toate lucrurile acestea vor deveni mai urate odata cu daunele provocate de soare.

(2. Even if you are using antiaging, you’re still aging. Here’s some bad news: we’re losing everything as we age, unfortunately, so there is no way out of it. You’re going to lose collagen and elastic tissue, so your skin is going to get saggier. Your skin is going to get rougher, and the pigment isn’t going to be as even. Also, all those things get worse with sun damage.)

3. Trecand pest protectie solara este cea mai mare greseala pe car o poti face. Lumea spune ca este o pierdere de timp, dar de fapt este ca spalatul pe dinti in ficare zi – asta dureaza 30 de secunde. Dintre toate cremele i tratamentele anti-aging pe care le poti cumpara , protectia solara este cea mai ieftina si mai eficienta cale. Si o sa vrei sa intri in obiceiul de a purta protectie solara in fiecare zi.

(3. Skipping sunscreen is the biggest mistake you ever made. People say it’s so time consuming, but really just like you brush your teeth every day — that’s 30 seconds.Of all the antiaging creams and treatments you can buy, sunscreen is the most inexpensive and effective route. So, you’ll want to get in the habit of wearing SPF 30 every day.)

4. Nu rata mainile si gatul. De multe ori vad persoane cu fata care arata tanara si cu mainile si gatul imbatranite. Aceste trei aree sunt cele mai expuse la soare, si de aceea ceea ce faci pentru fata trebuie sa faci si pentru maini si gat.

(4. Don’t skip the neck (and hands). A lot of times I see people with a young-looking face and old-looking hands and neck. Those three areas are chronically sun exposed, so whatever you do for your face you also want to do to your hands and neck.)

5. Bautul cu paiul cauzeaza riduri. Orice fel de miscare repetitiva a muchilor fetei cauzeaza riduri. Zambeste in fiecare zi si vei capta linii in jurul gurii, sau daca te incrunti te vei alege cu linii de expresie, dar ce sa-i faci? Nu poti sta ca o mumie ! Aceasta problema este usor de prevenit folosind retinol noaptea imprejurul gurii si pe frunte.

(5. Drinking from a straw does cause wrinkles.  Any kind of repetitive muscle movement will cause wrinkles. Smile every day and you get a smile line, or if you frown you’re going to get a frown line, but what are you going to do? You can’t stand like a mummy!This problem is easily solved by using a retinol at night around the mouth and on the forehead.)

(6. Eye cream really is worth buying. The skin around your eyes is the thinnest on the body, meaning that is where wrinkles will appear first. By your mid-20s, find an eye cream that will restore moisture to that area and ward off crow’s-feet. Sunglasses that protect against UV rays are also a must have for your beach days.)

7. A-ul din antiaging vine de la antioxidanti. Machiajul. poate acoperi multe imperfectiuni, dar acea stralucire sanatoasa din interior , vine de la o dieta plina de antioxidanti. In perioada anilor 20 , obisnuieste-te sa mananci fructe de padure, fasole si ciocolata neagra.

(7. The A in antiaging stands for antioxidants. Makeup can cover up a lot of imperfections, but that healthy glow from within comes from a diet packed with antioxidants. While you’re in your 20s, get in the habit of noshing on berries, beans, and dark chocolate.)

 8. Nu sta picior peste picior. Desi genetica joaca un rol indiferent daca iti va aparea sau nu vene varicoase pe picioare, sunt cateva lucruri de facut pentru a le preveni. Incearca sa nu stai picior peste picior. Daca trebuie sa stai o perioada lunga de timp , muta-ti greutatea de pe o parte pe alta. Si incearca sa porti ciorapi de sprijin în avion.)

(8. Don’t cross your legs. While genetics play a role in whether you’ll end up with varicose veins on your legs, there are a few things you can do to prevent them. Try not to cross your legs. If you must stand for long periods of time, move weight from side to side. And try wearing support stockings on an airplane.)

9. Evita fumatul sub orice forma. Poate ca ai tras cateva fumuri in perioada rebela de adolescent, dar fumatul este un obicei rau pentru piele care trebuie intrerupt cat mai repede. Impiedica aprovizionarea sangelelui la piele, facand imbatranirea mai vizibila, si de fiecare data cand inhalezi, cauzezi riduri imprejurul buzelor.

(9. Avoid smoking at all costs. We know you might have taken a few puffs in your rebellious teen years, but smoking is a bad skin habit to break ASAP. It restricts the blood supply to the skin, making aging more obvious, and each time you inhale, you’re causing wrinkles around your lips.)

10. Ai acnee? Viziteaza un dermatolog. In timp ce produsele fara prescriptie sunt usor de gasit, de cele mai multe ori e mai bine sa vezi un profesionist pentru a previne aparitia cicatricilor . Daca te-ai ales cu cicatrici , e mai greu sa scapi de ele decat sa le previi.

(10. Got acne? See a dermatologist. While over-the-counter products are easy to find, sometimes it’s best to see a professional in order to keep acne scarring to a minimum. If you start to get scars, they’re harder to get rid of than they are to prevent.)

11. Aminteste-ti sa fii activa. Exercitiile inmultesc proviziile de sange pentru piele, facand-o mai sanatoasa, si se va vedea.

(11. Remember to stay active. Exercise increases the blood supply to your skin, making it healthier, and it will show.)

12. Obisnuieste-te cu dusurile calii. In timp ce un dus fierbinte poate fi relaxant, caldura poate fi uscacioasa pentru par si piele. Lasa apa la temperatura mai scazuta pentru a capta hidratare. Ai cu jumatate mai putin par la 40 ca atunci cand ai 20. Parul devine mai uscat, mai aspru si isi pierde din stralucire. Si ai nevoie de toata hidratatrea posibila. Si de asemenea este o idee buna sa te speli mai rar pe cap pentru a pastra uleiurile naturale ale scalpului care odata cu imbatranire scad.

(12. Get used to lukewarm showers. While a steaming hot shower can be relaxing, the heat is actually drying to your hair and skin. Tone it down to a moderate temperature to lock in moisture. You have half as much hair at 40 than you do at 20. Hair becomes dryer, more brittle, and is not as shiny and resilient. So, you’ll need all the moisture you can get. It’s also a good idea to wash hair less often as we age to preserve the natural oils on the scalp, which decrease with age, too.)

13. Avem incredere in retinol. Retinolul este un produs vindeca-tot pentru problemele pielii tale si este sigur pentru a incepe sa-l foloseste de la 20 de ani. Retinol-ul este un produs usor de folosit pentru ca ajuta la tratarea petelor inchise si a decolorarii. In plus iti lumineaza si uniformizeaza tonul pielii.

(13. In retinol we trust. Retinol is a cure-all product for your skin care woes and is safe to start using in your 20s. Retinol is an easy product to use because that helps with dark spots and discoloration. Plus, it brightens and evens your skin tone.)

14. Spune nu lampii cu caldura.  Cand iti faci suvite dechise, evita lampa cu caldura si lasa culoarea sa se dezvolte natural. Excesul de caldura plus chimicalele pot fi de doua ori mai daunatoare parului tau.

(14. Just say no to the heat lamp. When you’re getting highlights, avoid the heat lamp and just let the color develop naturally. The excess heat plus chemicals can be twice as damaging to your hair.)

15. Stabileste-ti rutina de ingrijire. Cu toate aceste sfaturi, sunt cateva ingrediente dupa care sa te uiti in magazin: soia si vitamina C pentru a ilumina, peptide pentru inmultirea producerii de colagen, retinoizi si de asemene protectie solara.
