Beauty Muse – Beverly Naya

Hey Beauties! I can’t believe it is August already. How did July end so quickly? Where is the year going? In other news, the stunning Beverly Naya is the beauty muse for August on Fashion and Style Police. The talented British-Nigerian actress has been on my radar for some time now. I love watching her movies; she is a great actress and she does a fantastic job interpreting her roles. This beauty recently produced a documentary on Netflix titled “Skin.” The documentary explores colourism which is the discrimination of people based on their skin shades. I am looking forward to watching “Skin” at some point this weekend. It has been on my list of what to watch for some weeks now.

Colourism is a big issue in Africa, especially in Nigeria. Many men and women feel they have to lighten their skin to look beautiful. Most of them grow up hating their dark skin tone and end up going down the skin bleaching route to look lighter. I am happy to see more and more awareness is being raised about colourism. It is usually buried underneath racism, that people forget it is a huge problem in the African and Asian communities.

Back to the beautiful Beverly Nada, I think she has amazing skin. Her skin glows every time I see her. I am also a huge fan of her makeup. It was always so flawless.

Here are some excerpts from an interview she had with Pulse some months ago –

Her skincare routine

My skincare routine is quite simple. I just literally drink lots of water and lots of fruit as well, specifically oranges because they have a high level of citrus.

I guess I need to eat some more oranges. With skincare, the simpler they are, the better the results usually.

“It’s very good for the skin if you want to detox. I use cocoa butter, shea butter, and coconut oil. I wash and cleanse my face twice a day, it’s very important.”

Washing and cleansing the face twice a day is really important. I love using coconut oil as well. It is such a great multitasking product.

I got it some weeks ago and it is now of my favourite perfumes. Fatale Intense is a new perfume by Agent Provocateur. It has a rich, luxurious and mysterious scent.

A daring introduction tempts the senses with an exotic alcehmy that is composed of wild Dewberries, Black Licorice and Spiced Chilli. The heart of the fragrance is a rich blend of exotic flowers, evoking lust and passion, which is the essence of this fragrance. An intoxicating and warm base of Noir Leather, Luxe Amber and Tahitian Vanilla captures the lust, glamour and intense desires of this fragrance.

Ingrown hairs can be very annoying and embarrassing. Many of us have had to with ingrown hairs on some parts of our body, and they can be a pain to get rid of, so prevention is the way to go. Ingrown hairs happen when the hair curls and grow back into the skin, just underneath the surface. These annoying little things usually appear as a swollen spot.

Here are 5 ways you could get rid of your ingrown hairs –

 

Laser hair removal treatment

Having a laser hair removal treatment will reduce the ingrown hairs as the treatment uses laser light pulses to destroy hair follicles. If you are dealing with hairs growing in areas you rather they don’t and ingrown hairs, you should consider having this treatment done. I have had 6 sessions of laser hair removal treatment and it is so worth it.

 

Exfoliate regularly

You should aim to exfoliate at least once a week. This will get rid of dead skin, excess oil and stop the skin from clogging. Dead skin cells clog the skin and this clogging can force hairs to grown sideways, which will lead to ingrown hairs. So exfoliating regularly will stop this from happening, as there won’t be a build up of dead skin cells.

 

Don’t squeeze

If you do find yourself dealing with ingrown hairs, make sure you don’t feel tempted to squeeze. That would only make it worse and it could lead to a bacteria infection. The best thing to do with ingrown hairs when you have them is to leave them alone. They usually disappear within a few days if left alone.

 

5 Things you need to know before getting laser hair removal treatment image

 

 

Use a hair removal cream

Using a hair removal cream can help prevent ingrown hairs. Shaving tends to trigger ingrown hairs the most when compared with other hair removal processes because the hair grows back with a sharper edge and easy to grow back into the skin when you shave.

 

Take care of your skin

Taking care of your skin prevents many skin problems including ingrown hairs. Using the right cleanser, makeup remover, body wash, moisturiser, and so on, helps your skin stay healthy. You should pay special attention to your skin after shaving, threading, waxing or after a hair removal treatment as usually the treated area is always sensitive after the hair removal process.

 

These are a few ways of dealing with ingrown hairs. They are best avoided but sometimes you may find a couple regardless of how careful you are. The only way to completely avoid ingrown hairs is to let the hairs be. Don’t shave, laser off, wax or thread. This isn’t possible for many of us to do, which is why we have to pick the best way to get rid of unwanted hairs and reduce the chances of dealing with ingrown hairs.
