In the past, I had a lot of issues with my hair health and my overall health. My hair was dry, brittle, and unattractive. It was so bad, that I would try to find ways to hide my hair from the public.

My overall health was worst than my hair; I fell off my clean healthy eating routine, I ignored my detox/cleaning regime, and I just felt sluggish all the time. I needed to fix my health if I wanted healthy growing hair, and clear skin. I took some time off of work, blogging, and social media to detox and cleanse my body.

During my detox period, I started using Keranique Volumizing Shampoo and Conditioner for healthy hair growth. Keranique Volumizing Shampoo and Conditioner helps stimulate micro-circulation, and helps remove product build-up for faster hair growth. After 2 weeks, I started to notice a huge difference. My hair looks fuller, thicker, and growing at a fast rate. I am very satisfied with the results of my hair health.

Boost Your Beauty IQ

Author Bio: This article was written by Cristina Nika Kask. She is an Editor at highstylelife.com

How to boost your beauty IQ? Well, it is pretty easy if you know the basics of the proper skincare routine. From skincare and make-up products to the truth about beauty sleep, here is the list of everything you should know to be beautiful and healthy. 

Know your skin type
When we talk about a beauty routine, it is extremely important to underlie the fact that each and every skin type requires specific skincare products. The five basic skin types are normal, dry, oily, combination and sensitive.

Someone who has dry skin and uses the oil-free products for oily skin type will not solve the problem of skin dryness. The sensitive skin reactions such as redness, burning, dryness and itching can be caused by a variety of factors, from skin disorders to environmental factors. The products should be carefully chosen in this case as one of the main triggers are the ingredients found in cosmetics.

Know the basic skincare products
You can use more than a dozen of skincare products and still only dream of dewy, flawless skin. The trick lies in finding the basic products suitable to your skin type. Your beauty regime should include the following: a face wash, a tonic, a moisturizer, an eye cream, a face mask and a face scrub

The first four products should be used daily, while the application of the last two products should be limited to once/twice a week, depending on the skin type. 

Finally, carefully read the ingredient list on all products. You should be familiar with the nine most common toxic chemicals in cosmetics: phthalates, triclosan, 1,4-dioxane, parabens, 1,3-butadiene, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, placental extract and lead. Organic cosmetics does not contain the abovementioned ingredients, but the natural and gentle ones for the most effective nourishment of skin.

Choose the make-up according to your skin type
Yes, you heard mi right. Even your make-up routine should undergo a change. For example, have you ever wondered why you cannot get rid of shiny glare even though you have tried a hundred different foundations? The answer lies in the specific oil-absorbing foundations with matte finish.

From foundations and powders to concealers, choose the make-up according to your skin type as this is the only path towards the perfect skin. In addition, sensitive skin types should pay even more attention to what they apply on the face as the toxic ingredients we have mentioned can be found in make-up products, too.

Everybody's Free (to Wear Sunscreen)
As Baz Luhrmanm once said:  “Trust me on the sunscreen”. Every time you go out, make sure you apply it. Dermatologists suggest opting for a broad-spectrum sunscreen, which protects the skin from both UVA and UVB rays. The higher SPF, the better protection. And do not forget to reapply the sunscreen every three hours.

Eat your way to healthy skin
Choosing right cosmetics is not enough when it comes to healthy skin. A balanced diet consisting of carbohydrates, proteins and unsaturated fats is one of the key factors contributing to beautiful skin. Additionally, antioxidants found in veggies and fruit are super food as they fight free radicals, the main culprits behind aging. 

Beauty sleep
Last but not least, 7-9h sleep every night do wonders for your skin. Sleep can decrease the speed of aging since a growth hormone responsible for tissue repair is produced in the largest quantities during night. The products absorb better during night because blood flow increases while you sleep. Each and every cell, including the ones in skin are repaired at night. 

Here they are: the basic recommendations leading to the nourishment of your skin inside out. However, always research about the latest products on the market. The knowledge is power, as they say.

Everything She Forgot

I am very excited to participate in the Everything She Forgot by Lisa Ballantyne blog tour. Two of my favorite genres of literature are mystery and thriller. This novel is the perfect mixture of both. Best part of Everything She Forgot is set in my favorite/dream location in the whole world; London. I am a lover of London's scenery and culture.

Everything She Forgot has become one of my favorite books in my collection. I feel invested in Margret Holloway, and her experiences after her car accident. As well as the mystery man who saved Margret from the accident. It feels like I am reading a movie; I can imagine a movie play while reading this novel. 

Everything She Forgot by Lisa Ballantyne

SYNOPSIS:

Margret Hollaway is a one of two deputy head teachers at Byron Academy in London; driving on her way home to her family after a long day. Lost in her thoughts on a troubled student, her husband, and her two children, she was hit in a car accident. Close to death, a mysterious man saved her. After her rescue, she started to experience more than just the effects of her accident.

Margaret Holloway wrapped her scarf around her face before she walked out into the school parking lot. It was not long after four o’clock, but a winter pall had shifted over London. It was dusk already, wary streetlamps casting premature light onto the icy pavements. Snowflakes had begun to swirl and Margaret blinked as one landed on her eyelashes. The first snow of the year always brought a silence, dampening down all sound. She felt gratefully alone, walking out into the new darkness, hers the only footprints on the path. She had been too hot inside and the cold air was welcome.

Her car was on the far side of the parking lot and she wasn’t wearing proper shoes for the weather, although she had on her long brown eiderdown coat. She had heard on the radio that it was to be the worst winter in the past fifty years.

It was only a few weeks until her thirty-sixth birthday, which always fell during the school holidays, but she had so much to do before the end of term. She was carrying a large handbag, heavy with documents to read for a meeting tomorrow. She was one of two deputy head teachers at Byron Academy, and the only woman on the senior management team, although one of the four assistant heads below Margaret was female. The day had left her tense and electrified. Her mind was fresh popcorn in hot oil, noisy with all the things she still had to do.

She walked faster than she might have done in such wintry conditions, because she was angry.

“Don’t do this,” she had just pleaded with the head teacher, Malcolm Harris.

“It’s a serious breach,” Malcolm had said, leaning right back in his chair and putting two hands beside his head, as if surrendering, and showing a clear circle of sweat at each armpit. “I know how you feel about him. I know he’s one of your ‘projects’ but—”

“It’s not that . . . it’s just that permanent exclusion could ruin him. Stephen’s come so far.”

“I think you’ll find he’s known as Trap.”

“And I don’t think of him as a project,” Margaret had continued, ignoring Malcolm’s remark. She was well aware of Stephen Hardy’s gang affiliations—knew him better than most of the teachers. She had joined the school fresh out of college, as an English teacher, but had soon moved into the Learning Support Unit. The unit often worked with children with behavioral problems who had to be removed from mainstream classes, and she had been shocked by the number of children who couldn’t even read or write. She had taught Stephen since his first year, when she discovered that, at the age of thirteen, he still couldn’t write his own address. She had tutored him for two years until he was back in normal classes and had been so proud of him when he got his GCSEs.

“He was carrying a knife in school. It’s a simple case as far as I can see. He’s nearly seventeen years old and—” “It feels like you’re condemning him. This is coming at the worst time—he’s started his A Levels and he’s making such good progress. This’ll shatter his confidence.”

“We can’t have knives in school.”

“He wasn’t brandishing the knife. It was discovered by accident at the gym. You know he carries it for protection, nothing more.”
— CHAPTER 1 Margaret Holloway Thursday, December 5, 2013- Reprinted courtesy of HarperCollins Publishers

PROS: A great mixture of mystery and thriller, enjoyable read, and compelling story of Margret Hollaway

CONS: I did not experience any cons

RECOMMENDATIONS: I would recommend Everything She Forgot by Lisa Ballantyne to everyone. It is a very enjoyable novel.

RATING: 5 out of 5
