Every woman wants fuller, long lashes but only a few have them naturally. The easiest resort to have lush lashes is to pick up a mascara. Fuller lashes make your eyes seem to bigger and your face seem brighten up. While false lashes are a solution, they are not suitable for every time or occasion. Here are easy steps to attain those envious fuller lashes.

  • Boost your lashes by using an eyelash curler. This will curl your lashes at the base, thus drawing them upwards and outwards
  • Do this before applying the mascara so that the curler does not stick to your lashes.
  • You can curl your lashes 2-3 times by using the curler, once at the base and once mid-shaft, to achieve the curve.
  • Before applying the mascara, it is important to buff the lashes with a little powder so that the mascara has something more to stick to. This will plump up the lashes and make them look thicker.
  • Always begin applying mascara to the roots. Apply below the lash line in an upward and zig zag motion.
  • Always begin from the outer end of the eye and come inside. This will create volume at the base as well as enhance the lash curl
  • Apply 2-3 coats of mascara to get a pronounced look. To avoid clumps, wait after each coat to let it dry.
  • If clumping does occur, use a lash brush to smoothen it out once dry
  • Remember to protect your lashes by removing mascara completely. Sleeping with mascara would dry out your lashes, make them brittle and split. Use a makeup remover or a baby oil to remove the product without damaging the lashes.
  • These easy tips will get you lush lashes in no time.

    Our skin is made of mainly two layers: the epidermis (the outermost layer) and the dermis (underneath the outer layer). With aging process, our skin automatically reduces the production of collagen from dermis layer. The collagen is the main skin protein responsible for smoothness and elasticity in our skin. The lower amount of collagen makes wrinkles and fine lines appear on your face.
    In addition to aging, there are many other factors that can get you wrinkles and fine lines early; Sun exposure, lack of nutrition, pollution, smoking, lack of sleep, stress, and dehydration can also contribute these aging signs and make you look older ahead of time.

    Wondering how you can play against these odds and look youthful always? Well, there are several things you can start adapting in your daily routine (they are like secrets to the younger looking skin) and avoid wrinkles and fine lines. We all want to age gracefully, don’t we?

    Choose a right moisturizer

    There are many imported skin care products for women available in the market today that claim to be a perfect anti-aging treatment. However, sometimes all you need is good quality face moisturizer and a good face cleanser in your daily skincare regime.

    While many people boast of getting enough vitamins and minerals from their daily diet when they encounter with the question, we are seeing a number of individuals suffering from vitamin deficiency. Most of the population is deficient in Vitamin A, C, D, E, Calcium, Magnesium, and Potassium. This makes Vitamin supplements an important aspect of our daily diet. Here are few important reasons to add a Vitamin supplement to your daily lifestyle.

  • A balanced diet is quite essential to get all the necessary vitamins, minerals and other nutrients in the recommended dosage. Most of the working population does not have either the time or the energy to cook food at home. In addition, it is very common to cook food with one 1 or 2 ingredients to make it in a jiffy. This excludes foods from other food groups, thus depriving our diet of essential nutrients. It is imperative to include food from all food groups that is fruits and vegetables, grains and legumes as well as dairy and meat. This would give a balanced portion of all food groups on our plates, thus satisfying the need of macronutrients. However, when this is not possible, a multivitamin become essential to meet the daily nutrient requirement.
  • Most of the use might be having unbalanced meals devoid or limited of fruits and vegetable. Bothe fruits and vegetables are loaded with a number of nutrients. It is recommended to take 2-3 servings of each on a single day. This lower consumption of fruits and vegetable makes taking a multivitamin supplement important.
  • Fast food has become a way of life. For many working individuals and young students, time is always a crunch when it comes to eating. Thus, taking a fast food takeaway such as a burger, pizza or cola is easy compared to eating while being seated at one place. This on-the-go eating attitude has brought about a calorie and sugar abundance in the diet, which are just empty calories without adding much to the nutrient level. When having a balanced meal with fruits, vegetables, lean meat, whole grains and dairy is last on the mind, a multivitamin comes to the rescue.
  • Athletes and bodybuilders have more wear and tear going on in their bodies. Exercise depletes the body of essential fluids and nutrients. It thus becomes imperative to supply the body with ample vitamins and minerals to repair muscle tear and support muscle build-up. Adequate amount of vitamins will ensure that the body does not suffer from any muscle fatigue, deficiency, risk injury and depresses immune system,
  • Without a healthy lifestyle, our immune system suffers. The depressed immune system is one of the major reasons to get infections and diseases easily than ever. The body becomes susceptible to diseases around. It is very important to build a strong immune system, which is possible by following a balanced healthy diet.
  • The most easiest and effective way of supplying adequate vitamin to the body is taking a vitamin supplement, in tablet or gummy form. These will boost the immune system and help prevent infection.

    Jozani Forest

    Situated at 35km southeast of Zanzibar, this dense coastal rainforest covers an area of 50 square kilometers, and the only national park in the archipelago is home to thousands of Red Colubus Monkeys. These beautiful and rare primate are only to be seen on this island and as you tour the park, the delight of watching these creatures jumping from one tree to other, groom and care for its young is a truly an experience not to be seen elsewhere.

    Over the years, they are used to photography and humans being around them, and thus carrying your DSLR is definitely a plus. The creatures once endangered to extinction, now with the support of right conservation groups and initiatives, now habituate over 2,500 monkeys in the forest.

    Closest beach to the forest is Paje beach and thus easily accessible from there. However, many taxis are directly available to ride to the park with a nominal fee. Speak your local agent or hotel staff for arranging a tour.

    Stone Town

    We bet if you were to go unguarded in these maze type alleys of the town, you are certainly bound to get lost!

    Prison Island

    As the name implies, this was a sub-island a little off the port of Zanzibar island and different versions of stories depict that it was meant to be home to the criminals and offenders of the islands, and some say it was used during colonial times to keep the slaves over there.
