Hello everyone, I want to take a moment to let you know that I appreciate getting your feedback when you click a ‘like’ button, or click a ‘follow’ button to receive emails from the blog posts that I create.
I have been blogging for about 10 years. Currently, I post on 4 blogs. Recently, I started doing a Podcast. I am an essential oil enthusiast. My intention is to provide interesting and useful information for your Well-being journey, and Wellness regimen.
If you would like to learn more about the topics I post, please visit my website, JudithGuerra.com
I am struck so much by the unfortunate display of sadness about the alopecia conversation. I started the HairBlues.me blog 10 years ago, and still, after all this time, women, and I might add, men, and children continue to be troubled by this condition. That’s why the Alopecia industry is such a big industry: wigs, solutions, and potions that promise delivery of new locks. When you find a moment, listen to my brief podcast about this challenge.
We can get to the moon, but we have not solved this problem yet – unless we accept that “beauty” comes in all forms. The sooner we get in touch with that the sooner we will not find ourselves witnessing painful incidents of what is pre-determined as “beauty” by how one’s hair grows and looks.
If you want to find static sheets, which help minimize static electricity, are also cruelty-free and support our intention to do what we can to participate in the climate change conversation by purchasing climate friendly products, visit the websites below.
The Nunzio Saviano anti frizz sheet can tame flyaways, split ends, and humidity-induced frizz instantly without making your hair feel sticky. … Besides smelling deliciously good, the IGK no-frizz smoothing hair wipes are vegan-friendly, cruelty–free, and have zero traces of mineral oils, sulfates, and parabens.
These days the conversation about climate change is a constant concern. A recurring topic on HairBlues.me has been cruelty-free and Vegan products. This month we continue that conversation as we explore what the differences are between cruelty-free, vegan cosmetics, and why some companies use “green” packaging.
The November Wellness Connections podcast explains the difference among these products, and packaging.
Happy Earth Day ! In celebration of Earth Day, Today Hairblues is focusing on “planet friendly” SPF products . By the way, do you know that there are two ingredients in most SPF products , which are harmful to coral reefs?
Is your SPF product “safe reef spf“? Hairblues has focused on this topic in the past. And, you may recall the two ingredients in SPF determined harmful to the coral reef eco system – Oxybenzone and octinoxate should be avoided, if at all possible, for greater “planet safety.”
A recent comment submitted to this Hairblues blog suggested that a person wearing no Makeup can be beautiful as well as a person who does. Of course, I agree. The always lovely Alicia Keys openly rejects makeup. Of course, all you have to do is look at her in the prime of her loveliness and youth, I can’t imagine this winning duo requires too much of a decision. Can you?
I thought that it might be useful to research whether Makeup has other purposes, and can be used for example, to enhance the longevity of how our skin ages and, additionally, help to protect it. Here are just two examples (maybe suggestions). Enjoy!
A tinted moisturizer can actually be good for mature skin.
As I searched the www for opinions and ‘expert ‘ advice about the “no Makeup” choice , it became evident that the Makeup choice is – as you may have suspected – ultimately a personal decision, because ‘one size does not fit everybody’. What also became evident is that, as we age, our skin does change. It may become more dry, less smooth and thinner. There is also loss of skin elasticity. Our first example, therefore, is it may be important to use moisturizers daily for protection from the environment because they help to act against the dryness and add some elasticity.
Hairblues followers already know that I am a makeup fan. During this challenging time of Covid19, the use of masks is advised; however, it is still possible that you may want to wear and give makeup as gifts during the holidays.
A nice idea is that you can give to yourself and to others at the same time. That makes it a “win win situation”. I think we all need help finding some fun during these times. What can be better than giving to others.
Thrive Cosmetics is a company we have looked at before. Here’s a statement about what they are doing during this challenging period. “We partnered with nonprofit organizations like Donate Beauty, Beauty United, Self-Esteem Rising and Maimonides Medical Center who helped distribute our products to those fighting on the frontlines of COVID-19.“
