History Of Beauty Trends

Today we are living in a very fascinating world where everybody and everyone in the world stays connected to one another. As everything has progressed a lot, in the same way, the fashion industry is also at its peak nowadays. In the past, people from the past had few myths, and these myths were the beauty standards for those days. Some of those are mentioned here:
How to look fresh?
In ancient Egypt to look fresh was a beauty standard and looking fresh was checked through having neat and tidy hairs. So, in order to get a fresh look with a nice tidy, neat and clean hairs, people of those days mostly used saturated animal fats of those days. Although with the pungent smell it was used when going out especially.
How to have a waxed body instantly?
Getting rid of unwanted body hairs was also done through a method which seems illogical and insensible today, but in history, it was used overly. To achieve a hair-free body rubbing of the body with some stone, especially pumice stone was done, and this resulted in the loss of hairs of the body.
Interesting perfumes:
In ancient Egypt, some sort of interesting works were done, and those included the making of new, different and unique perfumes. These perfumes were made by mixing some honey, wine, and flowers and then it was used as a perfume. Besides using it as a perfume, it was also used as a medication.
Tang Dynasty:
In the Asia, mostly in China the most of the girls had foot binding. In foot binding, girls of 4-7 are taken, and their toes are broken except the big toes. After that, their feet are bounded to prevent any further growth. This was practiced in China for a very long period of time.
Large forehead:
Having a large forehead was also a trend of the history and most of the women from Medieval England usually plucked their hairs from the hairlines for making a large forehead that fitted according to fashion at that time.
Breast implants:
When talking about breast implants, there is a long history to come to its present form. In history, in the 19th century, breast implants were also available but where is the disaster? The disaster is in the breast implanting itself. For breast fillers everything was used and that everything ranges from using a ball or round rubber as breast fillers.
Skin hardening:
It was also a trend and was very commonly practiced in the early 1900s. For skin hardening, chemicals were used, and skin was made tighten and hard through those chemicals and using a spinning blade on scars could also lead to the somewhat hardened skin.

These were some of the malpractices done in the past to look more beautiful and according to the trends of those days. These some of the practices actually scare us now. In contrast to all these malpractices, now we have safe techniques to get our desired beauty.

Anti-Aging Creams Vs. Plastic Surgery

You may believe that a plastic surgery is the fastest and the most effective way to get a young face without wrinkles and similar issues. After all, you will go to a plastic surgeon and in just a few hours you will get a young skin. First of all, these surgeries are expensive and you must find the best surgeon in the business because they are not very simple. You will have to recover from it and you will have scars. They will be hidden, but you will have them!

The main drawback of anti-aging surgery is the fact your skin will be severely affected, so it will lose the elasticity and the natural properties. In simple words, you won’t look natural and you won’t be able to perform proper face impressions.

What about anti-aging creams

There are a lot of products of this type. We will be focused on the Diane Keaton anti aging wrinkle cream simply because we can see how beautiful this celebrity is, even at an old age. There are some reasons for that. Recently, she revealed that her anti-aging cream has two, main ingredients. So, what they are?

The first one is the Proprietary Bisophere. It is far more complicated than it sounds, but it has a huge effect. This ingredient will penetrate deep layers of the skin, deeper than other ingredients, so it will make a tremendous change. According to a study, this ingredient only reduces the wrinkles up to 60%. The first results are visible in a few weeks and it is effective in 100% cases. The end result is going to be smooth skin that is soft, firm and without wrinkles, obviously.

The main advantage of this ingredient is the fact it affects the main cause of the old skin directly. With age, our skin loses the ability to produce collagen, the main chemical that keeps our skin firm and smoothes. Increasing it will definitely have a positive effect on the skin.

QuSome is the second ingredient. It is important due to the moisture it can contain. In a matter of fact, this ingredient can store up to 1.000 times more moisture than its own size. As the result, the skin looks fresh. It will also speed up the recovery and the healing. Another reason why it is so important ingredient is the fact it protects the skin and eventually makes it immune to the environmental factors. It will reduce the toxins from it and QuSome will make the skin look better.

Only both of them will provide these benefits

Don’t think that just adding these two ingredients will have the same benefits. On the contrary, they must be mixed in perfect amounts and they must act as a ‘’team’’. It means that the first ingredient must increase the collagen production and then the second one will boost the moisture the skin contains.

The end result is the skin without 60% of the wrinkles, smooth, firm and perfect even in the age of 50.
