Makeup Tips Regarding Sparkling Up Your Small Eyes

This is guest post from Pauline from Young Blood Cosmetics.

Hello,
Eye makeup is the most important part of your makeup routine, and if it isn’t done properly it could end up spoiling your whole face. We wouldn't want that, would we? There are several ways to go about doing your eye makeup, but I prefer to stick to just a few simple steps when I’m on my way out in a hurry (which is obviously most of the time!).

The things you'll primarily need for your eye makeup would be concealer, primer, eye shadow, eyelash curler and mascara. The trick here lies in how you blend these things together. Let’s get to put these cosmetics to use, to artistically create those gorgeous eyes!

Oral Health:The Basics of Dental Routine

This is a guest from Dr.Kim Dyoco from One Mag Smile.

Hello,

By the time we’re adults, most of us don’t even remember learning to brush our teeth. Like tying your shoes and zipping our coats, it’s just something you know how to do, right?

Well, the unfortunate fact is that many people don’t take proper care of their teeth. Either they never quite learned the right way or they’ve developed less-than-perfect habits over the years. Whatever the reason, preventable dental problems are frighteningly common.

The good news is that most of the oral health issues we see in adults can be avoided with the right daily care. Even if you think you’re doing everything right, take a few moments to educate yourself on the basics, just in case you may be missing any crucial steps.

Acne Facts and Myths Busted!

This is a guest post from Milan from Clear Skin Clinics.

Acne prone skin is one of the biggest problems a young person can have. Clear, Snow-White-like skin is something that we all strive for, especially with the media and magazines portraying photoshopped girls with glowing cheekbones around every corner. Roughly 85% of teenagers suffer from some form of acne, and even though it does mostly occur in this time span, adults can have just as much problems with this as the teens. From treatments to causes, here are ten things that you might not have known about acne.

Time for a Cause:Toy Donation Campaign for Apollo Cradle

We at Diva Journals are happy to announce that Apollo Cradle is having this wonderful initiative called Toy Donation Campaign where you can donate toys to lesser privileged children and bring some joy & happiness to those children.

CRADLE FOUNDATION

Extending Apollo's philosophy of 'touching a billion lives', we have created the Apollo Cradle Foundation. The foundation is an initiative of Apollo Cradle, a women and child hospital that was conceived with the belief that maternity is not an illness but a time for celebration. The brand’s tagline of “Delivering Joy” sums this up. However, we realize that while we are able to serve some sections of society, there are many children who do not have the basic essentials that we take for granted. There are 20 million street children in India as per Hearts of India, of which 100,000 are in Bangalore.

We want to be able to do our little bit to make a difference to the lives of these lesser privileged children. This initiative aims to collect toys for children below 5 years of age from parents and children who are willing to gift these to lesser privileged children.


The collection drive is kicking off from 14th November 2014 to 15th December 2014.

For more details, please call +91 9902220002

Laser Hair Removal: Am I a Good Candidate?

This is a guest post from Molly who is a freelance writer for Colaz.

Laser hair removal for years been appreciated as one of the most effective methods for removing unwanted hair on different parts of the body. The method utilizes laser beams which are directed to the skin and particularly on individual hair follicles this destroying hair from the roots. This makes it hard for hair to grow again and this is what makes the treatment reliable and capable of producing long lasting results. 

Despite the fact that laser hair removal is ideal and efficient, it is important to note that it does not work well for all people. The question therefore is whether you are a candidate for this kind of treatment and this should be understood before booking your appointment with your therapist. So, are you a candidate for laser hair treatment?

I am going to review a product which had sparked lot of controversies after its launch in the market in India i.e. Clean and Dry Intimate Wash. This controversy made me read more about it. However bold and beautiful we may be, we always feel shy to discuss intimate issues and has been even considered as taboo.  Hence, the brands have found a key to cash our insecurities.
