If your skin could talk, what do you think it would say to you? Well, that depends on how you treat it. Many people think that they treat their skin well, but if it had a life of its own, it’d likely tell you something completely different. If your skin could talk, here’s what it would probably say… Protect Me From The Sun Please! Are you protecting your skin from the sun every day? You should be. Just because you can’t see sun damage, doesn’t mean it isn’t happening. You should be applying an SPF to your face each day, and your body if it’s going to be in the sun. Clothes can protect the skin from the sun for the most part, depending on how bright and sunny it is. You should still apply SPF to your face and even your hands, though.

Why Do Italian Women Always Look So Sophisticated

Ever since medieval times, Italy has been regarded as the epitome of style and sophisticated. The poet John Donne wrote about the southern European country in his poems, praising the Italians for their beauty and taste while mocking the appearance of northern Europeans. Even today, nearly 500 years later, Italy is still held up on a pedestal as the fashion and beauty capital of the world. If you’ve ever been to Italy, you’ll notice something: even regular people take pride in their appearance. But it’s not in the usual narcissistic way you might see in New York or London: it’s more a part of the culture, embedded in all the social relationships that make up the community. On a trip to Milan or Lake Como, you’ll see dozens of couples, young and old, all impeccably dressed, attractive and slim. No wonder Italy has the reputation that it has. Why do Italian women look so sophisticated? They’re Not Afraid Of Color   If one thing is true in Italy, it’s that women aren’t afraid to wear bright colors. You’ll often see women wearing stunning dresses and blazers in reds, creams, golds, purples, yellows, and greens. It’s a far cry from some […]
