If you love beauty and fashion, you may already have or are considering pursuing a career in this industry. One such option is modelling- and why not? As a model, you can be one of the first to debut a new makeup product, accessories, clothes, shoes, hair products, and so on. Likewise, some modelling jobs require you to travel to new places, which can be exciting. With hard work and perseverance, you can land gigs that could boost your financial stability. However, modelling goes beyond the runways, magazines, and photoshoots. It can be stressful sometimes, which can jeopardise your health. The key is to prioritise your well-being while navigating your career. Here are some helpful ways you can consider. 

  • You need sleep to rejuvenate yourself 

Granted, the cosmetic industry has released several beauty products that could give you a flawless look. And while they can cover up a tired face, they can’t give you the energy you need to take on the day. This is why you should not underestimate the importance of good sleep. You should note that having an adequate night’s rest can help you maintain a healthy weight. This is because your body reduces the production of ghrelin, an appetite stimulant. While at it, it increases leptin production, suppressing the need to overeat. Moreover, your brain can relax, allowing you to be in a good mood. This is especially beneficial when you have to be on your feet for a long period. Perhaps you want the best sleep but struggle to do so. If this is the case, consider creating an enduring set of bedtime rituals to help your body adjust to sleep. Skincare routine, regular evening baths, journaling, and so on can work well. Your room’s ambience can also promote sleep, so invest in comfortable bedding, dim your lights, and keep your smart devices away from your room. 

  • Your nutrition is also essential 

Your meals are a non-negotiable part of your health, making it important to prioritise whatever you eat. The goal is to consume a balanced diet of healthy carbs, lean proteins, lots of green veggies, and healthy fats. Combining these meals can give you the energy to power through the day. Likewise, eating well can reduce your desire to eat unhealthy meals, as these can affect your skin by causing premature ageing, inflammation, and acne breakouts. You should also note that knowing how to eat is equally important. Eating three balanced meals daily is what doctors recommend, so keep this in mind. You can also include healthy supplements in addition to your meals; however, ensure you choose the right brands. For instance, products like vegan b12 supplement tablets can increase your vitamin b12 intake while boosting energy. Plus, they are excellent for vegans. 

  • Make time for your social circle 

Like every career, modelling can be tough and sometimes overwhelm you. If this continues for a prolonged period, you may find yourself dealing with mental health issues. Thankfully, your social circle can support you through these times. Hanging out with your friends and sharing your thoughts can provide an outlet for your emotions, improving your mood. Moreover, their encouragement can boost your confidence, which can reflect in your work.

There are so many fragrance options that it can sometimes become so overwhelming when you have a limited budget and you are trying to decide on the perfume to go for. If you are wondering how to choose the right perfume, it is important to have a mini checklist of what you want in a fragrance. That takes the stress of shopping and overthinking away, and allows you to focus on choosing the right perfume.

Here are some points you could add on your checklist for when you need to shop for your next bottle of perfume –

  • Decide on the scent you want

One of the first things you should consider before you go shopping for a new perfume is to decide on the type of scent you want. There are so many different types of fragrances out there, so it is great to quickly narrow down your search by deciding on the scents you want. For example, an apple perfume would suit people who love their fragrances fresh and crisp. Dossier has some lovely green apple fragrances for those who are into this type of scent.

  • How long do you want your fragrance to last for

Knowing how long you want your fragrance to last for helps you set the right budget. If you want your perfume to stay for longer, then shop for Eau de Parfum scents, as they are more intense than Eau de Toilette scents. Most times, the more intense the fragrance, the more pricey it is, so let your budget and how long you want your fragrance to last for, guide you as you shop for your next bottle of perfume.

  • Shop from reputable perfume retailers

Like with everything else, make sure you shop from reputable perfume retailers both online and in stores. The last thing you want is to part away with your cash, only to find you have not bought what you thought you were buying. Do your research before you part with your money and make sure you are buying quality perfumes.

Understanding the Different Skin Types

There are five basic skin types: Dry, Oily, normal, combination and sensitive. It is important to note that skin types are primarily determined by genetics and are not the same as skin conditions. Let’s do a quick rundown of each of these skin types;

1.   Dry Skin

Dry skin describes a skin type characterised by a dull and flaky appearance. Although pores are unnoticeable, people with dry skin typically notice fine lines and a feeling of tightness on their face, mainly because dry skin produces less oil compared to normal skin.

2.   Oily Skin

Oily skin is characterised by excessive sebum production, usually resulting in the skin looking shiny and greasy throughout the Tzone area with enlarged pores.

3.   Normal Skin

A normal skin type is one that is not too dry nor too oily. It can best be described as a well-balanced skin. People with normal skin typically have a radiant appearance and a smooth and even texture without visible pores.

4.   Combination Skin

A combination skin type is one with parts ( the T-zone area) that are oily and other parts that are dry(cheeks).

5.   Sensitive Skin

Also, sensitive skin is usually referred to as a skin type; it is possible to have sensitive, dry skin and also sensitive oily skin. This skin type is usually prone to external irritants and may appear reddish, itchy or dry when irritated.

How to Identify Your Skin Type

Discover the skin type you have through any of these methods;

1.   The Wash Test

This method involves watching how your skin looks and feels after a wash.

  • Start by washing your face with a gentle cleanser and pat your face dry with a clean towel.
  • Wait for 20 minutes without applying any skincare product.
  • If your skin looks dry and feels tight, you have a dry skin
  • If your face has a shiny appearance throughout, you have oily skin
  • If only your t-zone area appears shiny, you have combination skin
  • If your skin is hydrated and comfortable, you have normal skin.
2.   The Blotting Sheet Method

Alternatively, you can discover your skin type by pressing a blotting paper onto your skin.

  • Wash your face with a gentle cleanser, pat dry, and wait 30 minutes.
  • Press the blotting paper onto various areas of your face and hold to see the oil marking
  • If the blotting paper is soaked with oil from all areas of your face, you have oily skin
  • If you see little to no oil, you have dry skin
  • If the blotting paper absorbed oil from your t-zone area, you probably would have a combination skin
  • If there’s minimal oil from every area of your face, you have normal skin.

Discovering the skin type you have is not rocket science. With any of these simple methods, you can find out your skin type and learn how to better care for it
