In the past, women were skeptical about removing facial hair because there were less options available there, but these days, Instagram and YouTube is filled with videos on removing facial hair. Honestly, if we tell people that we shave facial hair, they would just freak out! Since face is the first feature anyone observes, it needs to be well groomed! Are you someone who wants to get rid of facial hair and don’t know which method to try? This article will answer all your questions! In this post, we would be discussing 10 ways to remove peach fuzz.

What is Peach Fuzz?

It’s that fine hair which shows up only when you zoom high resolution facial pics.  It’s lighter, softer, finer, that is detectable only on close observation.

10 Ways to Remove Fine Facial Hair:

1. Shaving: Shaving has always been considered a man thing and a decade ago it would have been a taboo if women shaved their face. Personally, I thought the same way until a friend (beauty blogger) suggested me to try shaving, I wasn’t sure but since she is my best friend, I had to listen! Always use a good razor designed only for women-facial shaving, you can get it at a beauty store or online. Below I’m listing the pros and cons of shaving for you to get a better idea.

2. Waxing: This is an age0old method and is widely popular throughout the world where wax is applied on the surface of the skin in the direction of hair growth and pulled off using a waxing strip in the opposite direction, the skin is smooth and soft for days and weeks. There are two types of wax; traditional sugar wax and flavoured wax. You can do a patch test and choose wax according your likings. Let’s have a look at its pros and cons.

3. Tweezing: This method is perfect for smaller sections of the face like eyebrows or chin, since it would take ages to get your side burns tweezed. Tweezing is done with a tweezer that allows you to pluck one hair at a time. It’s a handy tool and most women reach out for it. This tool is ideal for women who have fewer hair on face.

4. Threading: This technique is an ancient method of hair removal and was found in the Middle East. The practitioner will run a cotton thread across the face an along a twisting motion which enable hair removal by the follicles. The best area to thread on face is eyebrows as it creates that perfect definition. But you can use threading on upper lips and side buns.

5. Depilatory Creams: This is another very convenient way to remove peach fuzz. There are two types hair removal creams – regular ones which are used for the body and facial depilatory creams are designed only for facial skin, we recommend using the facial hair removal cream as regular creams are too harsh and can cause severe burn and redness.

6. Laser hair removal: This is a popular hair removal process and mostly accepted. In this method, a laser is used to target hair pigment which damages. It is usually used on upper lip, side burns, and chin. It is permanent hair removal process which requires 8-12 sittings depending on a persons hair growth. The process begins with shaving of hair, and then the dermatologist applies gel before using the laser device to target hair roots. With regular sessions, the hair growth is considerably reduced.

7. Sugaring: This method has been used since centuries and is loved by most users. It is a traditional way of hair removal yet it is more gentle than waxing. A thick sugary paste is applied on the surface in the direction of hair growth, it is pulled off in the opposite direction. According to experts, it lasts longer than waxing, it usually lasts for a month or two depending on individual hair growth.

8. Dermaplaning: Dermaplaning is a safe and a very effective procedure in which a blade is used to scrape the topmost layer of the epidermis which results in the skin being leveled and exfoliated and the best benefit of this is that it gets rid of all the fine vellus hair on your face which is commonly known as “peach fuzz.” Now, the prospect of taking a blade to the face might seem intimidating to some and I was no stranger to this concern. But after some research, I found out that this procedure is extremely safe even for sensitive skin and in fact if you have sensitive skin, it is recommended that you go for this treatment as opposed to turning to its harsher alternative which is “microdermabrasion.” Dermaplaning is a non-invasive procedure for manual exfoliation of skin in which a surgical No. 10 blade is held at a 45 degree angle and used on dry face in quick downward swipes in a manner similar to “shaving.” No, it does not hurt at all. At most, you feel a slight scraping of your skin which is not at all uncomfortable. Your skin care provider may use a AHA/BHA peel or a hydration mask following the procedure to maximize the benefits because after the exfoliation process, your skin more readily absorbs the benefits of products. Read more about the “Dermaplaning” procedure here.

9. Electrolysis: This hair removal process involves the use of small needle which is inserted into the opening of the skin where the hair starts growing. Then, electricity is passed through the needle which kills the hair follicle. It generally takes 1-2 minutes to destroy a single hair follicle. Well, being one of the most common hair removal processes, most of the people opt for this process. Before considering this hair removal treatment, you should know the side effects of it. Read more about the procedure “Electrolysis” in this post.

10. Bleaching: A lot of women opt for bleaching to hide soft facial hair, blemishes or to bring some glow to our dull skin. Bleach not only lightens the facial hair it lightens our complexion also. It evens out the pigmentation marks and other spots thereby making the skin look flawless. But the point to be kept in mind here is that this effect stays for just 15-20 days. After this, the natural complexion of your face will come back. And you will again feel the need to apply facial bleach again.

Lilas

Viseart Lilas Petits Fours Eyeshadow Palette ($22.00 for 0.21 oz.) is a new, more taupe-leaning color story that included two matte eyeshadows and two metallic eyeshadows. The matte formula was lightly to moderately powdery, but both shades applied evenly and had good longevity so it was just a little messier to use than ideal. The two metallics were pigmented and very bright/shiny when applied to the lid.

Fondant

Fondant is a very light, lavender-taupe with subtle, cool undertones and a bright, metallic finish. The texture was smooth, lightly creamy, and blendable without being too dense or too firmly pressed into the pan. It had opaque pigmentation that adhered evenly to my lid and lasted nicely for nine hours before fading visibly.

FURTHER READING: Formula Overview for details on general performance and characteristics (like scent).

  • Sydney Grace Down the Coast (P, $8.00) is more shimmery, warmer (95% similar).
  • Kat Von D Heaven (LE, ) is darker, warmer (95% similar).
  • Tom Ford Beauty Lilac Dream #3 (PiP, ) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar).
  • Too Faced Cherie (LE, $16.00) is less shimmery, darker, cooler (90% similar).
  • Gucci Beauty Sasso (DC, $37.00) is darker, cooler (85% similar).

  • YSL Taupe Drop (03) (P, $30.00) is darker (85% similar).
  • Marc Jacobs Beauty The Free Spirit No. 6 (LE, ) is darker, warmer (85% similar).

Formula Overview

The eyeshadow formula is supposed to be “pigment[ed]” with “smooth and even application” that is “long-lasting.” The matte shades are typically semi-opaque to opaque but buildable with soft, velvety textures that can sometimes be a little powdery or slightly firm, depending on the shade. I find that the mattes are often best suited to someone who likes control over pigmentation and may prefer to build up color; they regularly perform better in practice than just swatched on the arm as well.

The shimmer shades range from satin to metallic, and the more metallic shades tend to feel creamier to the touch, while the satin ones have a fine pearl to them that looks almost melted on the lid once blended out. Both the mattes and shimmers are blendable and easy to work with. Most of Viseart’s eyeshadows wear between seven and nine hours on me.

Tiramisu

Tiramisu is a very light, lavender-taupe with neutral-to-cool undertones and a matte finish. It had opaque pigmentation that applied well to bare skin and blended out nicely along the edges without sheering out. The texture was soft but moderately powdery, so there was light fallout during application (even when I tapped off excess). It lasted for eight and a half hours before fading noticeably.

Argente

Argente is a darker taupe with subtle, cool undertones and a bright, metallic finish and faint micro-sparkle. It had opaque color coverage in a single layer, which applied evenly to bare skin but had light to moderate fallout as I applied and blended it out. I’d recommend using it with a dampened brush or a fingertip to minimize fallout. Thet exture was soft, smooth, and slightly dense but not too thick or too firmly-pressed into the pan. It wore well for eight and a half hours before fading visibly.

“Patients who are prone to cystic breakouts should use oil-free, noncomedogenic moisturizers to hydrate their skin,” Rodney says. However, she notes that noncomedogenic products won’t necessarily treat your breakouts — they just won’t contribute to the problem. That said, choosing a moisturizer that contains ceramides, niacinamide, or hyaluronic acid can be especially helpful. “These ingredients help to reduce redness and inflammation and restore the skin’s protective barrier. This is important because many acne-fighting active ingredients tend to be drying and irritating to the skin.”

Dr. Dennis Gross Stress Repair Face Cream is a noncomedogenic moisturizer that contains all three. Use it after washing with a salicylic-acid cleanser.

Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare B3 Adaptive Superfoods Stress Repair Face Cream

Finish with a medicated spot treatment.

Benzoyl peroxide works by lowering levels of acne-causing bacteria on the skin, thereby reducing inflammation, which is why Zeichner recommends using the ingredient as a spot treatment. Skin-care products come in 2.5, 5, and up to 10 percent concentrations of benzoyl peroxide, but you don’t necessarily have to max out on it. “Studies have shown that even low concentrations of benzoyl peroxide are as effective as higher concentrations, but are associated with less dryness of the skin,” he says.

Zeichner recommends looking for leave-on acne spot treatments with 2.5 percent benzoyl peroxide, such as Neutrogena Rapid Clear Stubborn Acne Daily Leave-On Mask or Paula’s Choice Clear Daily Skin Clearing Treatment.

Neutrogena Rapid Clear Stubborn Acne Daily Leave-On Mask

Paula’s Choice Clear Regular Strength Daily Skin Clearing Treatment

For really painful and/or red cysts, top it off with a hydrocortisone cream cocktail.

Applying an over-the-counter, 1 percent hydrocortisone cream, which contains a low dose of topical steroids, can help reduce redness and calm inflammation. Try Aveeno’s 1% Hydrocortisone Anti-Itch Cream or Cortizone 10 Maximum Strength Cream.

Aveeno Maximum Strength 1% Hydrocortisone Anti-Itch Cream

Cortizone-10 Max Strength

For the peskiest of cysts, combine a hydrocortisone cocktail as a leave-on spot treatment. Zeichner recommends a hydrocortisone cream to reduce inflammation, a two percent salicylic acid product to dry out excess oil (we like The Ordinary’s Salicylic Acid 2% Masque), and then benzoyl peroxide to kill acne-causing bacteria. “Put a drop of all three in the palm of your hand, mix them together, then apply.”

The Ordinary Salicylic Acid 2% Masque

For those with skin that’s not sensitive or doesn’t get easily dried out, another combo option is to swap in a sulfur-spiked treatment in place of the salicylic acid. “The combination of these three over-the-counter products — a sulfur-containing mask (try Sunday Riley’s Saturn Sulfur Acne Treatment Mask), a benzoyl-peroxide cream (we love Clearasil’s Daily Clear Acne Treatment Cream), and a mild cortisone salve — usually proves very effective when mixed and applied two to three times a day over the cyst for 7 to 10 days,” says board-certified dermatologist Leyda Bowes, the medical director at Bowes Aesthetics in Miami.

Sunday Riley Saturn Sulfur Spot Treatment Mask

Clearasil Daily Clear Acne Treatment Cream

When all else fails, color-correct the cyst.

When your cystic acne persists despite your very best efforts, Nazarian recommends using makeup with a slight green tint to help mask redness and blend your pimple into your natural skin tone. Try Cover FX Correct Click Color Corrector, applying a thin layer over the cyst before reaching for your concealer and foundation.

This past March, Academy Award–winning actress Helen Mirren told us she prefers her beauty routine to be simple yet effective. And in a more recent conversation with Harper’s Bazaar, the now 75 year-old is still the same laid-back beauty connoisseur we know and love, just with a few more lessons under her belt after a long, hard quarantine.

Admitting she found moments of confidence during stay-at-home orders, Mirren let readers in on her daily quarantine routine. “Every day, I got up, put on really good makeup, fixed my hair and got out of my pajamas and into real clothes,” she said. But getting glammed wasn’t the only ritual Mirren practiced to stay sane.

“My husband and I, because we’re both older, agreed we had to get as healthy as possible during lockdown,” she says. “We both adopted our own exercise programs; I did yoga and he did Pilates. It was a great opportunity to reset.”

Mirren walked us through the products that have been essential in her routine for the past 10 years earlier this year. While Elnett Satin Hairspray ($15) and Nivea topped the list, her 15-year-long partnership with L’Oréal allows her to continue to discover new products. The Winchester star says that while she’s always mixing up her moisturizers, the L’Oréal Paris Age Perfect Rosy Tone Moisturizer ($25) is her current favorite.

Just when we thought Mirren couldn’t get any more relatable, she shares her love for the drugstore. “[It] is a place of wonderment for me,” she says. “It’s a very inexpensive way to treat yourself. It’s my greatest indulgence.”

[unpaid/sample] Willowberry is just reliably wonderful – a solid, effective and carefully formulated range that is perfect for winter-worn skin. A combination of natural ingredients chosen to be high in essential fatty acids, vitamins and antioxidants are an absolute treat for skin.

Willowberry Christmas Set

It’s made in the UK, is a small business and is ethically sound, from being cruelty free to sustainability conscious. One of my big bug-bears is non-recyclable parcel tape which drives me mad picking it off boxes when it’s such an easy swap to make and of course, Willowberry has indeed done that, using the minimum possible packaging to keep products safe in transition.

Willowberry Christmas Set

In the small set, you get a Nutrient Boost Cleansing Balm (30ml), Nutrient Boost Day Cream (30ml) and Nutrient Boost Face Oil (10ml) as a complete routine that will last at least a couple of months. It’s an easy recommend and all about healthy, supple and comfortable skin. The set is £39.99 HERE.

There are certain things to never do online: buy fine jewelry, for one thing, because I’m not the wife of a Texan oil tycoon. Bras need to be fitted, foundations need to be matched, apartments need to be toured. In normal circumstances I’d also never buy perfume without smelling it first. But the fact that you can’t head to your local beauty counter for a smell-headache right now shouldn’t stop you from indulging in a beautiful new scent. Surely I thought, there must be a way to make buying perfume sight-unseen… doable?

To get some answers, I reached out to fragrance developer Cristina Bonati. Some background: Bonati studied at ISIPCA, the world-leading French perfumery school founded by Jean-Jacques Guerlain. (Yes, that Guerlain.) After graduating Bonati nabbed a job at Mane, a globally renowned fragrance house that makes private label scents for well-known (yet confidential) brands. She has also worked behind the scenes at Glossier. “I have always loved the way something as simple as a scent can carry you on a journey of endless discovery,” says Bonati, who tells me there’s no reason to be afraid of fragrance shopping online. Below, find her best tips for buying something you love.

Read up on each note

If you see an unfamiliar word in a fragrance description, Google it. Bonati suggests starting out on Fragrantica, a comprehensive online scent library where you can look up single fragrance notes. “They give you a description as well as a list of fragrances that contain that note so you can see if you’re familiar with any of them,” she explains. Another approach is to check out reviews that real people (not marketers) have written. Solinotes makes single-note fragrances, so reviews of their scents are essentially reviews of specific fragrance notes. Finally, says Bonati, “It might also be useful to think about if you’ve already met a note in a specific landscape, your childhood, or cooking.” Not only will this help you figure out what a note smells like, it’ll also help you understand the emotion it conveys. Ingredients can smell happy, calming, energizing, seductive… “I used to live in a village by the sea, so I know fragrances with ozonic, salty notes bring up happy memories for me,” she adds.

Understand how each note fits into the larger fragrance

Bonati explains that checking out each note’s placement in the olfactive pyramid (top, middle, and base notes) can help you put the puzzle pieces together. “You can smell smaller, more volatile molecules immediately but they fade away quickly,” says Bonati. Those are top notes—they’re there to pull you in and make a good first impression. “Base notes are the most representative of how the fragrance will smell as you wear it for a long period of time,” she says next, which is why you might have heard the common advice to “live with” a fragrance before. “But really,” says Bonati, “a fragrance is mostly characterized by its middle notes.” These don’t fade as quickly as top notes but don’t sit as close to the skin as base notes either—essentially, you smell them strongly for longer. If you know you don’t like a fragrance’s middle notes, you probably won’t like the scent.

Check the subfamilies

Now you know what every note in a fragrance smells like. You even know how much of each note you’ll get with each whiff. But how do you figure out what they all smell like together? “Reading fragrance families and subfamilies together will help you understand the main olfactive profile of a scent,” says Bonati, but let’s back up a bit. A fragrance’s family is derived from the middle notes, which you just learned are the most important part of a fragrance. (Sometimes they’re even called the heart notes.) Subfamilies are indicated by top notes, which can slant the middle notes citrusy, salty, or spicy. That’s why Bonati says it’s important to look at both. “For example, even though they’re both in the floral family, if your favorite fragrance is a heady jasmine you might not like a citrusy gardenia. The first is opulent and rich, while the second one is delicate and ethereal,” she explains. Basically, the subfamily gives you more precise information—and if it doesn’t say it on the fragrance’s webpage, you can find a fragrance’s family and subfamily on Fragrantica, too.

Communicate with the brand

“You can always get in touch with brands on social media to ask for more information,” says Bonati. You’ll be communicating with a real person who knows the fragrances well, which is especially helpful when you know you want to shop a certain brand but don’t really know where to start. They’ll be able to narrow down the range based on what you’re looking for, and might also offer shortcuts to understanding each scent. When you think you know which one you want to buy, try asking them to describe it in their own words—not only will their description be more accessible than the one on the site, but they’ll also be able to compare it to other scents in the range. (For example, they might tell you scent A is softer than scent B but brighter than scent C, or something like that.)

And if you’re really not sure, start with a sample

Sure, it’s an extra step. But ordering samples lets you try out different fragrances without committing to something you might not like. Many brands offer lower-priced sample sets of their entire collection, and some let you apply the price of the samples to a full-sized bottle later. (After you buy the sample flight, they’ll send you a coupon that’s good to use within a certain amount of time.) If you’re looking to gift fragrance, a sample set and a gift card for the price difference is a safe bet—plus, it’s a lot more thoughtful to your giftee’s tastes. If the brand you’re looking to try doesn’t sell samples, try a website like Luckyscent. They offer hard-to-find discovery sets, sample edits by fragrance family, and single samples priced from $3 to $8 each. Or, if you feel comfortable, mask up and visit Sephora or a beauty counter. Sales associates can make small samples of anything the store sells—it’s not uncouth to ask, and once you get the scent home you can bare-nostril it to your heart’s content. The one thing you don’t actually have to worry about is the way scent tends to change based on skin chemistry. Reassures Bonati, “If you want a fragrance to stay true to itself, you can always just spray it on your clothes.”

7 Ways your Body is Blocking Weight Loss https://fynefettle.com/7-ways-your-body-is-blocking-weight-loss/ https://fynefettle.com/7-ways-your-body-is-blocking-weight-loss/#respond Wed, 25 Nov 2020 20:55:38 +0000 https://fynefettle.com/7-ways-your-body-is-blocking-weight-loss/ 7 Ways your Body is Blocking Weight LossWe all are trying to become fitter and healthier, if not trying to lose weight always.

We all are trying to become fitter and healthier, if not trying to lose weight always. But losing weight is not always about fitting into old jeans and trimming the waistline, it is also about reducing the risk of metabolic and lifestyle disorders and get to a better version of yourself. We diet, we exercise, but even then we don’t get to our goal weight. It is interesting to note that the human body is wired in such a way that it likes to hoard and store fat whenever food is available and does everything it can in its might to prevent weight loss (even by making the metabolism sluggish). Our bodies have learnt to store fat during the evolution process and it’s not easy to undo this complex process. In fact, a few studies have even pointed out that the female brain is not wired for weight loss and that’s why women compared to men find it a bit difficult to shed extra kilos. With so much working against us in our weight loss journey, it would be interesting to find out in which ways the body is blocking weight loss and making it difficult for you to get fit. Find out more about them in this post and weed them out one by one.

1. By Slowing Down Metabolism: One option that the body always opts for when there is not enough calories or energy to burn, is by lowering the metabolism and making it sluggish and lowering the resting metabolic rate. A robust metabolism is the key to lose weight and when it becomes sluggish, the rate at which body burns calories and fat falls down considerably.

2. By Creating Hormonal Imbalance: When hormones go out of whack, weight loss goes for a toss. Thyroid, cortisol, testosterone, estrogen, leptin, ghrelin are some hormones whose imbalance can cause weight gain instead of weight loss.

3. By Creating Sleep Deprivation: As we have repeatedly reiterated, good-quality sleep and that too of 7 hours is absolutely essential to lose weight. The body needs to have enough rest to reset itself, to get the metabolism high, and to lower stress hormone, and when sleep is compromised, no weight loss can happen.

4. By lowering Satiety Hormone “Leptin”: It’s the fullness or satiety hormone that signals your brain to stop eating when there’s enough calories/energy in the body. When there’s leptin resistance, the brain does not receive signals on when to stop, and as a result, more and more calories pile up.

5. By Increasing Hunger Hormone Ghrelin: Ghrelin is the hunger hormone and when it’s high, you crave for food all the time. It’s important to bring in a perfect balance between ghrelin and leptin to induce weight loss.

6. By Increasing Food Cravings: Food cravings are amplified when there’s an imbalance in hormones such as leptin and serotonin. High stress and emotional dependency on food can also trigger food cravings. One can also crave for food in an anxious situation. When we don’t eat enough calories, an imbalance in hormones can trigger such cravings.

7. By Making you Feel Tired and Fatigued: When you have skewed up calorie intake, the body can react by making you feel tired and fatigued all the time, providing you with little energy to do regular chores.

That’s why it’s extremely important to follow a healthy diet such as Rati Beauty weight loss diets to lose weight, by not compromising on metabolism, by eating the right kind of food, and by maintaining appropriate calorie deficit – all important factors to shed extra weight.

Rainbow palettes are always fun, and though 30-pan palettes are daunting, I was inspired by ColourPop’s Fade Into Hue palette (their take on rainbows) to put together what I envisioned as a rainbow palette at this scale that would grab my attention–I’m really more into smaller color stories (like 10-15-pan palettes), but it’s always fun to challenge myself to think beyond that!. I had a concept for each row, but I did use existing products from the get-go (instead of doing a digital mockup) so if something catches your fancy, it DOES, in fact, exist!

Here’s how I wanted the palette to work out:

  • Iridescent/Sparkling Top Coats: The first row was designed to be a row of iridescent/sparkling top coats that could be used wet/dry, individually or layered over other shades to lighten/brighten. Did I cheat by going for all Clionadh Multichromes? Probably. I definitely wasn’t envisioning Multichromes – just more iridescent or duochrome with a translucent base.
  • Duochromes: The second row was all about more mid-depth duochrome shades for each color family.
  • Brighter/Mid-depth Mattes: The third row was about brighter and more mid-depth matte shades that would coordinate with the shimmer shades selected for each color family. These would be more “typical” for inclusion in rainbow-inspired palettes!
  • Deep Shimmers:  The fourth row was designed to offer deeper, richer shimmer eyeshadows for each color family.  In a real dream scenario, these would be more satin-to-pearl in finish, almost working as a psuedo-matte as well as a shimmer (and would play particularly well with the first row).  I didn’t want to create a digital mockup and then pick real versions, so I just stuck with what does exist in permanent ranges.
  • Deeper Mattes: The fifth row was selecting deeper mattes for each color family that would support the shimmers and contrast with the mid-depth mattes. I think with a rainbow-inspired palette with so much color that part of playing is to layer and create in-between shades.

See below for the shades in each column (which is by color family, effectively!):

Of all the beauty treatments the pandemic has left us yearning for, lash extensions are at the top of the list. Mascara is great and all, but there’s something to be said about waking up every morning with XL lashes that didn’t need coats and coats of inky formula. Though it still may be a while until we’re back in the hands of our favorite lash pros, Revitalash Advanced Conditioner ($150) is the best way to fake the same, fluttery results without booking an appointment at the salon. And the best part? Thanks to Dermstore’s epic Black Friday sale, you can score it for 30 percent cheaper than usual.

According to lash pros, the key to longer, stronger lashes is by using a conditioner. “Just like you condition your hair, you need to condition your lashes. Over-the-counter lash conditioners are a great option and typically contain ingredients that strengthen and moisturize them,” Clementina Richardson, celebrity lash expert and founder of Envious Lashes, previously told Well+Good. “Lash serums are treatments typically enriched with conditioning peptides and fatty acids that stimulate and promote growth and stronger eyelashes.”

The Revitalash formula is packed with those health-promoting peptides, which moisturize your lashes to keep them soft and healthy-looking while also helping to prevent breakage. It’s one of the only ophthalmologist-reviewed eyelash growth lash serum options on the market and helps to defend the delicate hair around your eyes. While it doesn’t necessarily make your lashes grow, it does promote an environment for growth, meaning it betters your odds.

With Dermstore’s 30 percent off Black Friday offer, you can stock up on a one-month, three-month, or six-month supply of the eyelash growth serum for a serious discount. According to an independent study conducted by the brand, 98 percent of users saw an “improved lash appearance, healthier-looking lashes, and stronger lashes,” after six weeks. To use the product properly, simply brush it along the base of your eyelashes after removing your makeup and cleansing your face. Over time, you’ll start to notice a serious difference in your “just woke up lashes” that will help ease the pain until your next eyelash appointment. Or maybe—just maybe—inspire you to cancel it altogether.

While we all try to adopt some new healthy food habits from time to time, there always seems to be some confusion between white foods and brown foods and which of them are better for your health. Most food items have their pros and cons but research conducted so far seems to suggest that brown foods are much healthier than white ones.

Brown foods are healthier than white foods

Various studies have proved that brown foods provide better nutrition to the body when compared to their white counterparts. For instance, a study published in the journal Antioxidants in 2018 stated that brown rice has anti-diabetic, anti-cholesterol, antioxidant and heart-protective properties. Moreover, regular consumption of whole-grain foods like brown rice can reduce the chances of getting a chronic disease. On the other hand, white rice is rich in carbohydrates and provides instant energy to the body. However, excess consumption of white rice can lead to weight gain.

Similarly, white sugar is the refined form of sugar, which does not provide any benefit to the body. Alternatively, jaggery, a brown sweetener, is nutrient-rich. Brown sugar is another form of sugar that is rich in calcium, potassium, iron and magnesium due to the presence of molasses in it.

Easily available brown foods

Here are five such brown foods which are easily available and can be consumed on a daily basis:

1. Jaggery: Jaggery is a great substitute for sugar. It is also rich in antioxidant properties, thus can help in removing the harmful free radicals from the body, which can otherwise damage the organs. Jaggery also promotes better digestion and prevents liver damage.

2. Brown rice: Brown rice is rich in fibre and minerals which help in improving your digestion, thus helping you maintain a healthy weight.

3. Nuts and seeds: If you feel like munching on something throughout the day, nuts and seeds such as walnuts, almonds and flaxseeds are the perfect brown snack for you. While walnuts keep your heart, skin, and hair healthy, almonds are perfect for those with cholesterol and diabetes. Flaxseeds contain plenty of antioxidants, healthy fats and fibre which help you maintain your weight.

4. Potatoes: Potatoes are a rich source of vitamin B6 and extremely delicious. Do not fry them; try cooking them with no or very little oil or butter.

5. Brown spices: Spices like cinnamon, cumin and nutmeg are rich in antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties.

Brown foods: Is it all we need?

While everyone is all praises about brown foods at the moment, they tend to forget about other foods that are required by the body to maintain proper balance. The naturally available red, purple, orange, yellow and green foods are equally important for the human body to function well. Eat all types of food that help you meet the daily requirement of nutrients. Avoid junk and oily food and eat adequate amounts of fruits and vegetables or as recommended by your nutritionist.
