There are always new beauty trends just around the corner. Laser treatments and glitter are two of the biggest trends out there right now. When lasers first started being used in the treatment of beauty issues, a number of people were quite alarmed. It seemed like quite an extreme beauty treatment, and the word ‘laser’ hardly filled people with confidence. A few years on and lasers are being used to zap spots, scars, veins, and even stray hairs. Glitter as a beauty trend is easier to get on board with, who doesn’t love sparkle? This is your definitive guide to the latest beauty trends, the who, what, when, where, and how’s -all answered…
Laser treatments are becoming increasingly popular amongst those looking for long-lasting anti-ageing results. The resurfacing treatment is particularly popular amongst those looking to tighten their skin and reduce the appearance of wrinkles. It works by removing the top layer of skin from our face. What is left underneath is softer, tighter skin, with fewer wrinkles. You will need to have several treatments for the full effect to be seen. Alternatively, some opt for photorejuvenation. The laser stimulated and encourages the production of collagen. This results in plumper looking skin with fewer wrinkles and lines.
Laser Hair Removal
This treatment is one of the most popular of all. The light from the laser is absorbed by the pigment in our hair. It prevents re-growth from happening by destroying the hair follicle. The treatment works best on those with darker and thicker hair, due to the pigment in the hair. This is a popular treatment as it could reduce the need for shaving and waxing. The cost of laser hair removal can be quite high as a number of sessions are needed.
Lasers can also be used to lessen the appearance of spots, scars, and redness. They can also target thread veins and acne scarring too. It is usually recommended that acne sufferers attempt to get rid of their spots and scars by using over the counter treatments, before trying laser treatments.
Glitter was everywhere on the catwalks this season, and we’re not complaining. It can be difficult to know how to incorporate glitter into your beauty routine thought. Take note from the runway and try lining the underneaths of your eyes with a slick of silvery glitter. Alternatively, go bold with a glitter lip, the only accessory you’ll need on a night out! If these two looks seem a bit bold for you, don’t worry. Instead, add a touch of glitter by using a metallic eyeshadow. You can buff this out for a toned down look or layer it up for some impact.
