  • Keep these items in your gym bag to prepare you for the rest of your day. 10 items men should keep in their gym bag

    If you're thinking about enrolling in barbering school, you may want to get into the habit of working out in the morning to get ready for the busy day ahead. If you do exercise in the a.m., though, you'll want to make sure you have the perfect gym bag full of items that can help you get through your workout then prepare for the rest of the day. Check out this list of 10 gym bag essentials you won't want to hit the gym without:

    1. Water bottle
    Probably the most important part of staying healthy and energized during and after your workout is keeping hydrated. Make sure you have a clean bottle with you before leaving the house, and drink plenty of water throughout your workout and for the rest of the day.

    2. Extra socks
    Keeping an extra pair of socks in your gym bag is a good idea for those mornings when you run out of the house and leave a couple items behind. You don't want to wear the socks you'll be in for the rest of the day at the gym, so it'll be nice to have an extra pair handy!

    3. Towel
    Keep a towel on hand during your workout to wipe sweat off of your face between workouts. Another good idea is antibacterial wipes to clean machines with after you're done with them. 

    4. Athletic tape
    Athletic tape has many uses beyond wrapping up injured or sore joints. You can also use it to protect your hands while lifting weights and for bandaging cuts and scrapes. Keeping a roll in your gym bag will ensure you're prepared for small injuries that could happen during your workout.

    5. 2-in-1 shampoo and body wash
    Even if you use several different products during your typical showers, you may not want to lug them all to the gym every day. Keep your after-gym care simple with a combined hair and body wash so you have just one shower product to carry around.

    6. Astringent wipes
    Bringing an actual face wash is a great idea to use after a sweaty workout, but you should also consider bringing a small pack of astringent wipes. Any sweat or oils left on your face after exercising can easily clog your pores and cause acne.

    7. Hair-styling cream
    With a long day ahead of you, you'll want to make sure you have a product to quickly fix your hair after your shower and keep it in place the rest of the day. Bring along a tin of styling mousse to give your hair the shape you like. 

    8. Pain reliever medication
    Sore muscles and injured joints can make the rest of your day a little more difficult, so keep a bottle of pain relievers on hand just in case you need them. 

    9. Laundry bag
    You'll need someplace to keep dirty clothes so that you and the rest of your gym bag contents don't smell for the remainder of the day. You can find odor absorbing bags for this purpose, or find any bag that seals and toss in a dryer sheet!

    10. Deodorant
    This product should stay in your bag no matter what! Deodorant is going to keep you smelling fresh for the rest of the day after a hard workout. 


  • Add bronzer to transition your day look to night. How to transition your day makeup look to night

    If you're considering enrolling in cosmetology courses, you most likely know that there is a pretty big difference between daytime and nighttime makeup looks. Though every woman has a different makeup style, daytime looks – to school or work, for instance – are generally more reserved with subdued colors and a conservative overall appearance. On the other hand, nighttime makeup looks – say, to a school event or work function – tend to use bolder and brighter colors that make more of a statement.

    Changing your look from day to night doesn't have to mean putting on a whole new face, and there are plenty of features you can play up to get the right vibe. Try any of these simple tweaks that can make the day to night transition:

    Eyes
    Some women choose to play up their eyes when going from a day to night look. Consider having liquid eyeliner, mascara and a darker shadow palette on hand for making the transition. Using your fingers or a small brush, first apply a little bit of darker eye shadow onto your lids. You can use two shadow colors to contour the lid or create a smoky look, but just one shadow color will make a difference if you're short on time. If you're already wearing liner, thicken it up or turn it into a bold cat-eye look using some liquid or gel liner. Then apply a couple coats of mascara to thicken and lengthen your lashes. 

    Lips
    If you're planning on keeping the eyes a little more subdued, you may want to try to play up your lips. Though there's not one single nighttime lip look that works, it can be fun to wear bolder colors in the evening to create a statement. Try a lip stain for long-lasting color or a lipstick in a hue that pops. You can also make a fun statement by going for the nude look, so find a pale pink or beige shade that works for your skin tone to create the perfect nude lip. Add volume to lips using gloss or make your lips matte by pressing a tissue to your mouth, then brushing on the tissue that's over your lips. Just enough powder will seep through to take away any shine your lip product has.

    Face
    While daytime looks are more dewy and bright, you can get away with some cool contouring in the evening. If you need to freshen up your foundation or concealer, do that first. Then apply bronzer under your cheekbones and lightly on your forehead and chin to create the contouring effect. 

    Hair
    Going from day to night doesn't have to mean making a big hair transition, but it may be worth it to give your hair a little volume using a dry shampoo or hairspray at the end of the day. That way your hair will continue looking bouncy and healthy throughout the evening. 

    Accessories
    Finally, try adding some bolder earrings or other jewelry to make your look really stand out!

    Remember to try to play up only one feature at a time, whether you're doing a daytime or nighttime look. Wearing a lot of makeup on every facial feature can be a little too much and look a bit overdone. 


  • Great skincare stocking stuffers to get your friends this year. Skin care stocking stuffers your friends will love

    You most likely have an idea about what big gifts you're getting your friends and family for Christmas, but what about those stocking stuffers? If you're stuck on what to get the ladies in your life this year, consider buying them small skin care gifts! To get started, take a look at these essentials every woman could use in her stocking:

    Face exfoliant
    Exfoliants are great stocking stuffers because they don't have to be very expensive, and every woman can use them. These products slough away dead skin cells, leaving your face smooth, clear and healthy. Plus, using an exfoliant at the beginning of your normal skin care routine can actually help to boost the effectiveness of the rest of your products, since they'll be able to penetrate into clear pores better. 

    Night serum
    Every woman should have a repairing night serum to help rejuvenate their skin while they sleep, so it's the perfect decadent stocking stuffer to get for your friends. Serums penetrate into the skin's deepest layers, repairing it from the inside out with antioxidants, peptides and other concentrated restorative ingredients. They visibly boost the skin's appearance by helping to repair wrinkles, day-to-damage, dryness and more.

    Skin balm
    A cute tin of skin balm fits easily into a stocking, and all of your friends will love being able to incorporate it into their winter skin regimen. During the season when dry, flaky and cracked skin is an unfortunate inevitability, a moisturizing skin balm is super practical. Buy a 2-in-1 lip and skin balm so your friends can take care of all of the dry areas with one product!

    Eye cream
    The best way to beat wrinkles around your eyes is to start taking preventative measures early, so consider buying your ladies some eye cream this year. Tackling wrinkles isn't all this product does, either. Eye cream is also a great tool for brightening under-eye circles and tightening up some of the puffy skin in the area, which makes it great for even the younger women in your life. 

    If you have a passion for skin care, you may want to consider enrolling in esthetics training where you can learn about professional skin care practices and techniques.
