A common problem many of us suffer from (some without realising) are dark elbows. This usually happens due to dead skin cells and sun exposure. If you’re wanting to lighten your elbows, then we’re here to help!
The most popular natural treatment for dark elbows is treating them with lemon juice. The citric acid in lemon juice is a natural bleaching agent, helping to lighten the skin tone. It’s a simple treatment too. All you have to do is cut a large lemon in half, squeeze a bit of the juice to help make two hollow lemon halves. Rub the lemon cups over your elbows and then allow the lemon juice to act for 3 hours. Wash off the juice with warm water and then moisturise, as lemon juice is drying. If you repeat this daily, you should see a massive difference within 3 weeks.
Below are three ways to make sure that you improve the way your nails look and feel. Nothing too costly, just make sure you stick to them and we guarantee healthier nails.
Never leave your nails too long, as they can end up catching things and your nails are at their weakest whilst they’re long. With your toe nails, make sure to cut in a straight line and not curved, as you would with your finger nails.
Eating healthy is also very important for your nails. Weak nails are known to be cause by iron deficiencies, so focus on eating foods such as egg, vegetables, red meat etc.
Also consider massaging your nails with fresh lemon juice. Dip a cotton ball in fresh lemon juice and massage your nails, then rinse. This should help strengthen your nails, whilst also help make them look more radiant.
Who doesn’t want clean, strong nails? It’s surprising that most people seem to be unaware that a healthy diet effects nails just as much any treatments used.
If you wear nail varnish and it’s chipping away, make sure to remove the nail varnish and let your nails breathe for a few hours before adding another layer again. Some people don’t remove the remaining nail varnish before adding a new layer and this is very bad, which could lead to your nails yellowing.
You should also regularly trim your nails. Chipped edges only cause more breakages, so if you want to main the length you can but make sure to make the nails even and smooth. We’d recommend a nail file for evening out the nails after a cut.
If like many men in the United Kingdom and the world who have decided to bring back the beard in all its glory, will realise that it does take some work, care and attention to keep it looking like a glossy GQ-esque well pruned man mane it is. If you do not have a clue, fear not we shall endeavour to enlighten you on some treatments and procedures to help you stay “grizzly-chic”.
If you have a tache and/or a beard, investing in some natural moustache wax could help change the game. From adding body and shine to keeping hold of manic out of control facial fuzz the moustache wax holds everything in place while giving scope to shape, re-design and mould.
Next thing you could get a specific beard grooming comb and scissors to help manage any out of control growth combined with a beard razor for your desired facial hair style. If all else fails and you decide that you don’t want to do it yourself there are many specialist barber shops and salons that could help you out.
Overworking your hair with hair products, or heat can do damage in the long run. Healthy looking hair will appear healthy because it is. By this we mean that the more products you use in your hair, the less natural and healthy it will be.
Gliding your fingers though your hair is not easy when it’s coated in wax or gel, and whilst your style may hold, it won’t appear healthy. Straighteners and hair curlers can singe the tips of your hair and leave the ends dead, but by forming a style that allows your curls to bounce freely, you can have healthier hair in the process, without overworking it.
Special occasions may be the times when a man or a woman feels the need to overwork their hair, perhaps they want a style to hold, or they want to look as though they have made an effort. This is fine, but you should not overwork the hair on a daily basis, because it can cause complications in the long run.
