  • It's important for weekend warriors to pay attention to finger and toenail maintenance. Weekend warriors: Keep those nails looking clean and polished

    As nail technician training teaches, proper care and maintenance of your finger and toenails is an important part of hygiene, so be sure to make some time during your busy weekend schedule to focus on your hands and feet. Besides, a little pampering may be just what the doctor ordered after event day!

    The hands
    If you've spent ample amounts of time outside throughout the weekend, there's a chance your fingernails are dirty and full of grime. You'll want to trim and file your nails if they've gotten too long. Keeping your fingernails on the shorter side helps prevent injuries and issues such as broken nails. You should also make sure you wash your hands with soap and water after spending time outdoors.

    It's also a good idea to remove nail polish and let the nails breathe for at least a few days before applying a new shade.

    If you have jagged cuticles, you can use a cuticle cutter to trim around your nail bed, and be sure to apply moisturizer to your cuticles and hands to keep dry skin at bay. Additionally, take care of hangnails properly by trimming the nail with clippers instead of biting or tearing it off, which can cause pain and potentially become infected. Instead, trim the nail and then use a file to smooth out the edges.

    The feet
    There's a good chance that much of your weekend is spent wearing gym shoes, especially if you were working out. You'll definitely want to give your feet a break so they can air out and decompress. It's also important to give your feet some breathing room if they've been in sweaty socks all day because this dark, damp environment makes it easy for fungus to grow.

    Ladies, if you have your toenails painted, the weekend is a good time to remove the polish and let your nails breathe since some nail polishes block the flow of oxygen, which causes discoloration to the nail.

    It's also important for both men and women to regularly trim your toenails to keep them short. This helps reduce the risk of ingrown nails. You may also want to consider exfoliating your feet with a scrub to remove dead skin, and then you can apply a moisturizer. Dry feet are not the ideal way to put your best foot forward, and pampering these extremities after a long run or workout session is sure to feel amazing.


  • Hair removal for men is becoming more popular. Is hair removal something men should consider?

    Today, hair removal consists of much more than women waxing and plucking away unwanted hairs. Now, we have manscaping, or male grooming, which you'll find is a growing trend if you start esthetics school. From the chest to the back, men are giving hair removal a second thought.

    "Most men don't necessarily want it all removed, but increasingly they do want it thinned out," dermatologist Dr. David Goldberg told WebMD.

    Chances are, as you begin your career, you'll have both male and female clients interested in different hair removal treatments, though some men may still be skeptical of the practice.

    It's unacceptable for men (or anyone, really) to simply roll out of bed and head to work, a date or an outing with friends. Now, women, co-workers and even friends expect and appreciate men who are well groomed. And as friends, girlfriends and pop culture make more convincing arguments for this trend, an increasing number of men are trying out hair removal.

    Here are some compelling reasons for men to jump on the grooming bandwagon and consider hair removal:

    Look clean and put together
    No one would go too long without taking a shower (we hope!). Similarly, men can take advantage of hair removal to improve a polished look. Whether it's getting his eyebrows or unibrow waxed, his facial hair trimmed or his chest hair removed, manscaping can make a man feel and look more put together.

    It's cooler
    When it comes to temperature, it's understandable that being covered in hair from head to toe is bound to make men hot. For guys who are looking to cool off, hair removal will help them stay cool.

    It might boost confidence
    Like anyone, having excessive body hair might make a man feel self-conscious or lower his self-esteem. In this case, hair removal – whether it's taming eyebrows or waxing back and chest hair – can help a man feel more confident and improve his overall mood.


  • It's important to find the right shade of makeup for your skin tone to create a flawless look. Choosing the right makeup tones for your skin color

    Beauty training teaches how makeup can enhance your features, such as making your eyes pop or your lips stand out. However, it can be easy to choose the wrong shades of concealer, eye​ shadow, lipstick or blush. With so many options nowadays, it's easy to see why so many women have a hard time figuring out the right colors for themselves. So, use these tips to help you pick the right tones to match your skin color:

    How to pick a base
    To avoid buying a concealer that doesn't match your skin tone, keep in mind that skin has three undertones: cool, neutral and warm. Foundation and concealer shades are based off of these undertones, so here's how to tell which one you are:

    • Cool: Cosmopolitan magazine said that if the veins of your inner wrist appear blue or purple and your skin flushes and burns easily in the sun then you have cool undertones. Additionally, you're cool if silver jewelry looks better on your skin than gold and your skin looks more pink. If this sounds like you, then you should choose a foundation with a rosier base.
    • Neutral: You have a neutral undertone if your skin is neither pink nor yellow but falls in between with hints of both, the veins in your wrist are blue-green and both silver and gold jewelry look good on you.You can use either a pink- or yellow-based foundation, but be sure to try it on your skin first to make sure it blends naturally. 
    • Warm: Lastly, people with warm undertones have veins that appear green on their inner wrists, look better in gold jewelry and have skin that looks more yellow than pink. This means you should look for foundation with a yellow or olive base.

    Cosmopolitan also suggested a useful test to make sure you've chosen correctly – dip a cotton swab in the foundation and apply it to the center of your jawline on the side of your face. If the foundation appears invisible, then you've chosen the right one. If you can see lines or a distinction between colors, keep looking. Make sure that you are testing clean, moisturized skin and it's useful if there is good lighting.

    Accenting your face
    If you wear blush, you want to choose the right shade. For fair skin, you can opt for a champagne or light pink color. Ladies with medium skin should go for a rosy pink or peach, and for those with darker skin, a blush in a rose or deep orange shade will complement your complexion.

    It's always fun to play up your eyes with different shades of shadows, but make sure you're choosing something that works with your skin to give the right impression. According to The Beauty Bean, women with lighter skin can choose shadows in pinks, soft greens and browns while those with darker skin look great using richer tones like deep purple or metallic gold.
