Beauty Trend Predictions: 2017

See what’s going to be hot this year

A new year brings with it all kinds of exciting things, including a new round of trends in hair, makeup and skincare. So, listen up ladies! Here’s what you can expect to see and love in 2017.
 
Long Hair
It’s hair, it’s there, it’s everywhere! Waist-length locks are making a comeback, which makes it all the more important to properly tend to your tresses. Whether you want to go stick straight or make a few waves, the key is maintaining moisture without letting things get greasy. Whatever your preference, one thing’s for sure; nothing says, “sexy” like a luscious, healthy mane. So go ahead, unleash your inner lioness!
 
Embellished Do’s
With all of the long haired looks popping up, it’s no wonder braids are big this season. Add a few little plaits to your otherwise simple style, or go all out with a braid crown including sparkly hair jewelry; either way, you’ll be equally chic and on trend up top.
 
Ombre Lips
Glitter, goth and matte lip looks are all sticking around in the New Year, which means a variety of pouts can be on point. Hottest of them all however, is the ombre lip trend. Requiring a bit more work than the familiar  dark lip liner/light lipstick combo of the 90’s, ombre lips are all about depth and sensuality. Apply a darker shade around the edges of your lips with a gradual change or lightening of color as you move inward, and you’ll be amazed at your own mouth!
 
Nail Bling
Bright and glittery hues were everywhere last year, as gel manicures took the trend stage. This year, the collective nail game turns up another notch. Far beyond a well-placed crystal, 2017 brings big bling to your digits. Who needs jewelry when your nails are accessories?!
 
Got Milk?
Dairy skincare is all the rage this season, so obviously milk is included as one of these skin-nourishing products. Lactic acid softens skin and even exfoliates without hijacking hydration. It’s as good for your body as it is for your face, so drink up  (through your pores)and savor the super soft results.

5 New Things to Try in 2017

New looks that would look great on you!

Trends come and go, but as every woman knows, not all trends are meant for everyone. In fact, there are plenty of times when classic trumps the look du jour. That being said, these five low-risk easy trends will help you remain on point without going out on a limb. Have a look and see what you think!

Baby Face
Contouring our faces to high heaven has been all the rage for a while now, but 2017 promises a glance back at a simpler time, specifically cherubic youth. Inspired by the Korean trend, so-called, “baby face” makeup requires a heavy dose of moisturizer, since a dewy, fresh face is the goal. Follow with concealer (as needed), foundation, matte powder and blush. And of course, you’ll want to tend to your eyebrows, too. Speaking of which…

Natural Brows
Years of taming your facial tresses may have left your brows thin or unwieldy. This year, go for a naturally fuller brow instead of opting for a heavily penciled-in look. If your brows are a little over plucked, try growing them back and filling in what’s missing with powder in the meantime. It may take a while, but the results will be worth it, because full, natural brows (with shape, of course) never go out of style!

Graphic Eyes
Feeling adventurous? Consider taking a break from the smoky eye trend of the last few seasons in favor of a more geometric line, or even graphic pattern. Glitter under eyes is another hot trend on this year’s runway and can make a fun, surprising addition to an evening look!

Volume Lashes
While the thought of spider web lashes may scare you; you don’t have to go all-in to make the most of this trend. Instead of focusing on length and making sure each lash is individually defined and separated, focus on fullness. Thick, full lashes of a medium length go a long way toward emphasizing your eyes for a sexy, sultry look.

Beauty Foods

Change what you put in your body and see what you get out!

Did you know that glowing skin and thick, luscious hair may be just a few bites away? Okay, that may be an exaggeration, but what you put in your mouth has a much bigger impact on your looks than you may realize. Consider making these tweaks to your diet and your well-being, and your mirror will thank you!

Fatty Fish
Omega Three Acids aren’t just brain food – these fats nourish and hydrate your hair and skin, too. If you’re not into salmon, herring or caviar, try adding Omega 3 supplements, in pill or oil form, to your diet. Your scalp will be fed, your tresses will be shinier and your skin may even look a little brighter.

Spinach
Spinach may be known to make us stronger thanks to Popeye the Sailor, but this leafy green is also wonderful for exfoliation and preventing wrinkles. It’s particularly effective when paired with a squeeze of lemon juice (or anything else high in vitamin C).

Avocado
Avocado is another natural moisturizer. This dreamy, delicious remedy for dry skin is a natural hydrator you can savor! Added to your diet regularly, it will also help even out your skin tone.

Collard Greens
It’s the anti-oxidants that make collard greens great for hair and skin. They fight toxins and give you more than two-thirds of your daily Vitamin C intake in a single serving. This helps brighten your skin and minimize scarring.

Pineapple Express
Pineapple not only softens your skin, it helps synthesize collagen. This sweet treat can be enjoyed as a juice or a snack, either way, you’ll reap all of the benefits!

Oysters
If you’re a raw bar aficionado, I’ve got good news for you! Oysters are wonderful for your hair, nails and skin because of their high zinc content. The zinc helps your cells regenerate; the single most important thing in keeping your hair, skin and nails looking their best and brightest. 

Hands of Time

A few handy beauty secrets to keep you looking young

If you’re like most women, you focus a good deal of time on anti-aging facial care. We all want to look younger,but did you know that taking care of the skin on your hands is almost more important than your face? Your hands are the first part of your body to show age. After all, they are constantly exposed to the sun, and between housework, work and life in general, they never stop. Here are some anti-aging skin care tips to help your hands stay youthful.

Sunscreen
We all focus on applying sunscreen to our faces, but our hands should be first in line. This is the first step in anti-aging hand care; everything else is icing on the cake. Apply sunscreen daily,whether it is cloudy or sunny. Apply from your hands up to your elbows to protect against UV rays and other elements. Carry a bottle with you and reapplying after washing your hands to stay protected.

Exfoliate your hands
You might be accustomed to exfoliating your face at least once a week; now it’s time to use the same product on your hands. Exfoliating your hands once a week will slough off any dead skin cells and allow other products to be better absorbed. For hands that need extra help, rubbing a retinol product such as JAFRA’s Gold Dynamics Intensive Retinol Capsules onto the back of your hands can help. It ncreases skin cell turnover, encourages collagen production and smooths your skin. Be sure to only apply at night and be vigilant about SPF during the day, since your hands will be more sensitive to the effects of the sun and elements when you use this product.

Treat the spots
Another sign of aging hands are dark spots due to sun exposure. Treat these spots with a Vitamin C serum, like JAFRA’s Royal Jelly Infusions Spot Serum with Vitamin C, to help fade existing dark spots and prevent new ones. 

Moisture, moisture, moisture
If you don’t have hand cream in your purse, your car, your desk - basically everywhere you are,now is the time to keep these at your beck and call. You can never have enough hand cream to lock precious moisture into your skin. At night you can also rub a balm onto your hands to seal in any treatments and smooth your skin. A great one to try is JAFRA’s Precious Protein Extra Care Balm. It has an emollient formula that combines oils and proteins for extra smooth skin.

Become obsessed with gloves
Gloves are to your hands what a hat is to your head; extra protection. Not just from the sun, but from everything you do in your life. When you are washing the dishes, or cleaning the house, be sure to have gloves available. You can multitask and pamper your hands while cleaning by applying a luxurious hand cream before you put on your dish gloves. Once you are done, you will have super soft hands!
