6 Predicted Beauty Trends To Look Forward To In 2017

6 Predicted Beauty Trends To Look Forward To In 2017

A new year always comes with new trends and fashion statements. Just like all the other trends the beauty trends also change over the time. If you want to look stylish then it is essential that you keep up with the latest trends. The beauty trends are not just limited to the style of makeup, but also to the skincare and products that people want to use.

Here are some of the beauty trends that you should be aware of in 2017.

1. Less Emphasis on Contouring

In 2016, contouring was a big part of the beauty trends. The chiseled and sharp look has become a thing of the past and it has been replaced by a soft look. The soft look is achieved by choosing softer accents and lighter shades. You can also just opt for just a slight blush. It will make you fresh and provide you a lighter and easy-going look. If you want to add a little edginess then you can do contour with a bronzer or highlighter.

2. Hairstyles Without any Heat

2017 is expected to lean more towards hairstyles that are created without using any heat. Heat is harmful to the hair. It can make it weak and shriveled. Some people prefer straight or curly hair every day and they use a lot of products to save the hair from damage but the products are also full of chemicals. The new year is bringing the trend of opting for hairstyles that do not require heating. There are so many easy and simple hairstyles that require no heat.

The new year is also opting for natural texture of hair. There are so many new texturizing sprays that allow you to play with the natural texture of your hair. People are opting for a natural, carefree and an effortless look. 2017 is the year of using styling products that are used for enhancing the natural texture instead of suppressing it.

3. Going for Natural Ingredients

People are becoming more and more aware of the importance of ingredients used in the skin care products. People now understand that the ingredients used in the products are important, as they have a direct effect on the skin. They now prefer natural extracts to achieve beauty resolutions instead of using artificial methods like fake eyelashes. (They prefer growing eyelashes naturally.)

4. Choosing the Textures

There are so many different textures and formulations that are going to become a popular part of skincare. Sheet masks are already an important part in a beauty routine. There are going to be other masks such as bubble masks or splash masks.

5. Contrasting is the New Thing

With the new year, there seems to be two new approaches towards makeup. The trend is leaning towards vibrant and bold colors as well as going for natural and nude skin tones. The trend towards a more natural look is becoming popular. Natural does not mean that the makeup should be dull. It just means that it should be according to your natural skin tone.

6. The Grooming Trends

Brows are a highly important part of the face and they are a big part of the world of beauty. There is a lot of time spent on making sure that the brows are the perfect shape and color. The importance of brows is not going to reduce as the new year begins. But there are going to be new techniques introduced such as brow dyeing or micro planning. The tweezers are not much of a trend anymore. The new year is bringing new ways of grooming the brows.

With these trends, start 2017 with the perfect look! What beauty trends will you be adopting?

How to Stay Calm and Cool When You Are Extremely Stressful

How to Stay Calm and Cool When You Are Extremely Stressful

Being in a hurry all the time drains your energy. Your work and routine life make you feel overwhelmed. Getting caught up in things beyond your control stresses you out…

If you’d like to stay calm and cool in stressful situations, put the following 8 steps into practice:

1. Breathe

The next time you’re faced with a stressful situation that makes you want to hurry, stop what you’re doing for one minute and perform the following steps:

  • Take five deep breaths in and out (your belly should come forward with each inhale).
  • Imagine all that stress leaving your body with each exhale.
  • Smile. Fake it if you have to. It’s pretty hard to stay grumpy with a goofy grin on your face.

Feel free to repeat the above steps every few hours at work or home if you need to.

2. Loosen up

After your breathing session, perform a quick body scan to identify any areas that are tight or tense. Clenched jaw? Rounded shoulders? Anything else that isn’t at ease?

Gently touch or massage any of your body parts that are under tension to encourage total relaxation. It might help to imagine you’re in a place that calms you: a beach, hot tub, or nature trail, for example.

3. Chew slowly

Slow down at the dinner table if you want to learn to be patient and lose weight. Shoveling your food down as fast as you can is a surefire way to eat more than you need to (and find yourself with a bellyache).

Be a mindful eater who pays attention to the taste, texture, and aroma of every dish. Chew slowly while you try to guess all of the ingredients that were used to prepare your dish.

Chewing slowly will also reduce those dreadful late-night cravings that sneak up on you after work.

4. Let go

Cliche as it sounds, it’s very effective.

The thing that seems like the end of the world right now?

It’s not. Promise.

Stressing and worrying about the situation you’re in won’t do any good because you’re already in it, so just let it go.

Letting go isn’t easy, so here’s a guide to help you:

21 Things To Do When You Find It Hard To Let Go

5. Enjoy the journey

Focusing on the end result can quickly become exhausting. Chasing a bold, audacious goal that’s going to require a lot of time and patience? Split it into several mini-goals so you’ll have several causes for celebration.

Stop focusing on the negative thoughts. Giving yourself consistent positive feedback will help you grow patience, stay encouraged, and find more joy in the process of achieving your goals.

6. Look at the big picture

The next time you find your stress level skyrocketing, take a deep breath, and ask yourself:

Will this matter to me…

  • Next week?
  • Next month?
  • Next year?
  • In 10 years?

Hint: No, it won’t.

I bet most of the stuff that stresses you wouldn’t matter the next week, maybe not even the next day.

Stop agonizing over things you can’t control because you’re only hurting yourself.

7. Stop demanding perfection of yourself

You’re not perfect and that’s okay. Show me a person who claims to be perfect and I’ll show you a dirty liar.

Demanding perfection of yourself (or anybody else) will only stress you out because it just isn’t possible.

8. Practice patience every day

Below are a few easy ways you can practice patience every day, increasing your ability to remain calm and cool in times of stress:

  • The next time you go to the grocery store, get in the longest line.
  • Instead of going through the drive-thru at your bank, go inside.
  • Take a long walk through a secluded park or trail.

Final thoughts

Staying calm in stressful situations is possible, all you need is some daily practice.

Taking deep breaths and eat mindfully are some simple ways to train your brain to be more patient. But changing the way you think of a situation and staying positive are most important in keeping cool whenever you feel overwhelmed and stressful.
