If you love fashion and good, quality beauty products, you will be happy to find out that the designer Roland Mouret is launching his first beauty product. It is a body serum that he has developed in collaboration with Aromatheray Associates, which “brings a velvet touch on the skin of a woman”, as Mouret said.

The Final Finish Body Serum is meant smooth your arms, legs and décolletage, and to give you a very soft, glowing finish, after you put on a dress. The new product combines essential oils and natural ingredients such as evening primrose, jojoba, rose and vanilla.

Mouret said that he truly loves women, and this is why he thought about creating a product to enhance their skin beauty:
 “I truly love women, all women. By the time a woman puts on one of my dresses we’re already into the second part of our relationship. Final Finish is yet another touch on the skin of a woman.”

The serum will be launched on September 24 and will be priced at 52,26 €. You will be able to find it on aromatherapyassociates.com.

Fashion shows draw the most captivating trends for the next season. This autumn and winter it’s all about keeping it simple. Here are some of the most flattering trends, straight from the catwalk.

Fine Hair

You struggled all life with fine hair, with no volume? This fall you can relax. It’s time for enjoying natural, flat looking hair.

Ponytails

Ponytails never seem to go out of fashion. Jason Wu, Ralph Lauren and Marc Jacobs are just some of the designers who preferred this hairstyle for emphasizing their fall collections. Make your hair sleek and flat, add shine and simply pull it in a precise, low, ponytail.

Braids are here to stay

Play with your hair and braid it the way you like it. Twisting hair around the crown or in an updo is fun and modern. Take a look at Valentino and Fendi.

Retro updo’s are in trend also, as opposed to the flat hair. In order to obtain it, roll your hair and tuck it under, for extra volume. Also, be prepared to use a lot of hairspray, to keep hair in place.

You may find washing your hair the least important part in styling your hair the way you like it, but in fact washing it properly can make a huge difference. Here are three of the common mistakes you need to avoid:

 

1. Not wetting your hair enough

Wetting your hair completely is very important. Don’t skip this detail, even if you’re busy and you need to wash it quickly. Dirt is much easier to clean if hair is soaked wet first, so the shampoo can penetrate better.

 

2. Shampooing the ends

Try to apply shampoo mostly on your roots, where oil is produced. The ends of the hair are the ones that dry faster, and shampooing them too hard will only accentuate the lack of moisture. On the other hand, put conditioner on your ends, and keep it away from the roots, not to get your hair greasy.

 

3. Not washing enough, or washing too often

Indeed, it is better not to wash your hair often, but this is not a rule. Depending on the type of hair and the activities you do, you can wash your hair once a week, or daily. If you normally exercise everyday and you do a lot of workout, you can wash it more often, but it is better to use a shampoo gentle enough for everyday use. Also, straight hair tends to become greasy faster than curly hair, which is usually drier.

How important is the way you look and feel for your sexual life? Studies say it’s almost vital. A survey made by the University of Pittsburg shows that cosmetic surgery can increase not only women’s self-esteem, but also boost their sex lives.

According to lead researcher Guy M. Stofman, chief of plastic surgery at the Mercy Hospital in Pittsburgh, after breast, abdomen, and thigh procedures, 95 percent of patients said they felt much better in their new bodies and their self-esteem grew considerably. More than half of the people involved in the survey said their sexual life improved.

Out of all the interventions, the breast and the body surgery lead to the best results concerning self-esteem and sexual life. Eighty percent of breast and 50 percent of body-surgery patients said they experienced more frequent and powerful orgasms.

On the other hand, face-and brow-lift patients didn’t report significant improvements in their sex lives.
