Published

WINTER

Winter is a time of joy, holiday celebrations, spending quality time with family, and new beginnings. It should be celebrated by looking good, feeling good, having fun, and of course enjoying cozy fires, chunky sweaters, and some hot cocoa.

But skin dullness can out some of the fun from these festivities. Sure, some laser technologies nowadays can correct that, but most women aren’t comfortable using those on their skin, let alone the high costs associated with doing so, especially after the year of Covid-19 and lockdowns. Besides, now most are mindful about what to apply on their face. The right skincare products go a long way in keeping your skin healthy, hydrated, and glowing.

What causes dull winter skin?

The lack of moisture in the dry winter air causes the skin to become “tight,” flaky, and creates a dull complexion that’s not pretty.

How do you treat dull winter skin?

In other words, how can you achieve glowing skin during the winter? Answer: With a skincare lineup of hydrating moisturizers, face masks, and serums.

Below is a list of some amazing skincare products recommended by MIRA BEAUTY that can help prevent dull skin in the winter and help you achieve that glowy skin you dream about:

Charlotte’s Magic Cream by Charlotte Tilbury

Magic Cream! Yes, you heard it right, this cream works wonders on your skin. It has a soft pillowy texture and has one of the best moisturizers for your winter skincare routine. One of the vital components of this cream is Hyaluronic Acid, which locks the skin’s moisture, keeping it smooth and soft. Bionymph Peptide Complex is there to remove the lines on the skin that comes with old age. It helps to bring back the radiance of youth. This magic cream includes Vitamin C and E that fight off skin dullness while keeping the glow intact. Charlotte’s Magic Cream is a winter wonderland for your complexion.

Facial Fuel Energizing Scrub by Kiehl’s

Everybody loves winter, but it makes the skin dry and dull, and takes the fun and enjoyment out of the festivities. Did you know that extreme temperature changes can be harsh on your complexion? It creates dead cells in your skin, leading to unevenness in your skin. Facial Fuel Energizing Face Wash by Kiehl’s will give you the winter look that you have always dreamed of. It contains Apricot Kernels, Caffeine, Menthol, Vitamin E, and Citrus Extracts to remove impurities without stripping your skin of its natural and essential oils. This face wash helps the pores in your skin to absorb moisturizers more easily to restore its natural glow. This exfoliating scrub is made for both men and women. Men have up to 25% thicker skin than women, and the scrub penetrates deep into the skin to remove impurities. Regardless, it’s worth being part of your skincare line up.

Pumpkin Hydra Gold Eye Gel Patch by Too Cool For School

The most sensitive part of the skin affected by winter dullness is the “under eyes.” Eyes are the most visible symbol of expression. Having dry, dull skin in or around this area makes you look quite old. Girls who pull all-nighters for mid-terms or finals are the most comfortable victims of this problem.

Fun Ideas For Adult Parties

Published

By

Who says children are the only ones who can have a fun party? Even adults can have exciting and memorable parties. The key to great adult parties is to think out of the box and to be creative. You can’t simply gather a bunch of people and expect them to have a good time. You need to think of fun activities that they will enjoy. Below are some cool ideas that you can try for your next get-together.

Outdoor movie night

If you and your friends love to watch movies, then maybe you can organize an outdoor movie night. It’s one of the best ways to spend a beautiful summer evening. There’s something about watching movies outdoors that makes it a fun and special activity. If you don’t have a projector and a screen, then you can simply take out your LED TV.

Of course, you need to set up the place to make your guests comfortable. The best thing about watching movies outdoors is that you don’t even need seats. You just need to set up mats and pillows. What movie to watch you may ask? What about a scary movie? Horror movies are perfect to watch under the moonlight. And yes, don’t forget the popcorn.

Pool party

If you have a pool at home or have access to a pool then make good use of it by having a pool party. It’s the perfect thing to do especially when the weather is hot. And it’s also a chance to show off your new swimwear and summer outfits. Pool parties should have a relaxed vibe so you need to make sure that your setup will encourage your guests to chill. And you really don’t need to prepare much.

All you need are some blankets, towels, colorful pillows. Pool floats and beach balls are optional. Of course, a pool party won’t be complete without a barbecue. You can have burgers, hotdogs, chicken, and anything that you can cook on a grill. For desserts, ice cream is perfect for hot summer days and nights.

Bowling party

The best adult parties are those that involve some sort of games. So why don’t you organize a bowling party? Bowling is a fun activity. And it doesn’t matter if your guests are good bowlers or not, for sure they’ll still have a good time. And the best thing about a bowling party is that you can hold it even if the weather is bad.

The key to a successful bowling party is finding the right venue. It’s a good thing that many bowling alleys nowadays cater to bowling parties. Some even have party packages that include food, drinks, and even party favors. Getting a party package means that you don’t have to worry about anything anymore. The venue will take care of everything you’ll need. And if you get a party package then you can be sure that you will have enough space for your party.

What Are the Different Parenting Styles?

What Are the Different Parenting Styles

A huge 88% of parents believe that parenting today is more difficult than it used to be. Thanks to new research into parenting styles and the growth of social media, there is a lot more judgment out there.

And parents are more afraid they are “doing it wrong” than ever before.

But is there a right or wrong way to parent or are there just different styles? This guide will walk you through the four parenting styles defined by psychologist Diana Baumrind in the 1960s plus two new ones.

Hands-Off

Hands-off parenting is also known as uninvolved or neglectful parenting. Hands-off parents have little to no expectations of their children and do not respond to their needs. Children find their parents unloving and their cognitive development is poor.

It is the worst parenting style. If you think you have this approach to parenting and are in a child custody battle, you should seek immediate and professional help. The hands-off style is one of the big parenting mistakes to avoid.

Permissive

Permissive parenting is also known as indulgent parenting. Parents are undemanding of their children and give them few responsibilities. But, unlike hands-off parenting, the parents are loving and “give in” to their child’s desires often.

They are likely to let their children stay up past their bedtime and give them extra treats. But this type of parenting style does not give children what they really need. Children need boundaries or else they will not fare well in a rule-based society.

Authoritative

Authoritative parenting is one of the better parenting styles. It is more likely to result in children becoming well-adjusted adults. Authoritative parents have high (but realistic) standards and set reasonable boundaries.

This parenting style avoids empty threats and harsh punishment. Instead, it encourages self-confidence and self-discipline. It is one of the hardest parenting styles to master but the most rewarding.

Authoritarian 

Very different from authoritative, an authoritarian approach to parenting involves high expectations. And the punishment for breaking rules is also way too high.

The thought process of authoritarian parents is that their children will be obedient and driven. But, strict action without cause leads to raising children who do not know where the boundaries are and have poor judgment.

Helicopter

Helicopter parenting is a new style of parenting. These types of parents are too focused on the successes of their children and they micro-manage them. 

Children of helicopter parents develop low self-esteem. They are often unable to believe they can achieve by themselves.

Attachment

Another new parenting style, attachment parenting is often only applicable to raising children up to three years old. It is the practice of breastfeeding, holding, and sleeping with the child to achieve close body contact almost 24/7. This results in a close emotional bond.

Many regard it as a healthy parenting style, but attachment parents should be mindful of not tending to their child’s every need. They could slip into permissive parenting without realizing they are.

Parenting Styles To Raise Well-Adjusted Kids

Now you have more information on the main parenting styles, you will be able to choose the right style for you. You will never get it right 100% of the time but as long as you have your child’s best interest at heart, they will be fine.

How to Choose the Best Viking Axe

Published

on

For hundreds of years, the Viking Age is well remembered and admired as one of the most tumultuous times in human history. At that time, warring countries and entire civilizations were spanning across continents, fighting for supremacy. The Vikings were known for raiding settlements, taking over others, and even going to fight other Viking ships on the ocean’s surface to dominate all other ships. While this may seem like the Viking age was some fantasy, it ushered in a period of technological advancement where every aspect of warfare could be improved upon.

Of course, when you’re choosing a Viking axe, not every element can be improved upon. For example, there’s no such thing as a universal Viking axe. Each of these weapons has certain characteristics that make them a better choice for particular tasks. That said, it’s important to know what those are.

For instance, one of the essential things to remember is how much weight each weapon can handle. In particular, a heavy-duty Viking axe is going to be much more effective if it’s able to deal with handling a large amount of weight. Fortunately, that sort of functionality is available in most axes, and you should consider which type would be the best for your purposes before making a final decision. Fortunately, this is not a difficult task as most modern axes will have all three of these things.

Another important characteristic to keep in mind when comparing Viking axes is how quickly it operates. Remember, Vikings did not have paper money yet, so they carried around a lot of money. That, of course, meant that they had to move it around a lot. If you’re planning to use a Viking axe in combat, you need to be sure that you have something that moves a good deal and is easy to carry. Fortunately, modern axes are very light and pack away in your pocket easily.

The last thing to think about is how long the Custom Damascus axe is going to last. After all, you’ll want something that’s going to last. A good rule of thumb is that you should get the longest distance between replacement sets. Luckily, modern axes generally come with a ten-year guarantee, so you don’t have to worry about that at all. When you’re looking at choosing the best Viking axe, remember that there’s plenty to think about. Of course, remember that you should be comfortable using any of them. Try them out in the store. Practice with them. It’s also a good idea to consider who you’ll be using the Viking axe for because you might have different needs than the next person.
