How to choose the right sweater for you

This is another guide that deserved to be published early in the winter. The sweater is an essential part of the men’s wardrobe, it is a precious ally a good part of the year to help us fight against the cold. A piece is all the more essential that it is useful in autumn, spring and especially in winter.

Well choosing your sweatshirts: the different models you can find

As you know, the sweater comes in a multitude of models, not to mention the variants that each of these pieces includes! According to JustCoolSweaters.com, not all sweaters will look good on you and you have to select the one that fits your body shape. To get off to a good start, we start by going around the various models that can be found on the market, with their little stories and their specificities.

Round collars

Probably the most popular model on the market, the round neck is certainly the most essential model of sweatshirts. Its contemporary form comes from many different origins: Shaggy dogs and sea-passes. A small historical point is needed!

Guernsey pull

Located on the coast of Normandy, Guernsey is an island famous for hosting Victor Hugo, who sought to take refuge after Napoleon III got in power. The island is also known at the time for its knitting know-how, including the invention of Jersey points used for sweaters. This industry developed thanks to the opening of the market by the English crown: the inhabitants of the island could then import their wool from England and export manufactured products. These sweatshirts were basically knitted for sailors by their wives, with a technique passed on from mothers to daughters. Thanks to export, they were quickly found in Britain and, because of their qualities, they were used by the Royal Navy during the Napoleonic wars.

This is where their navy blue color comes from. In addition to the boat neck, the Guernsey pullover is symmetrical (it has no front or rear). It also includes the objects of the daily life of fishermen. There are for example a ladder at the top of the sleeves, or waves through the armpit point foam. Their construction has a small specificity: a rhomboidal seam that allows better movements. The Guernsey sweater, like the Breton sailor sweatshirt, is worn tight to the body, however, the specific shape of the sweater makes the seam joining the shoulders to the sleeves protruding far beyond the wearer’s arms.

The original sweaters are so solid that they can do without one generation to another!

Irish pullover

We do not really know if the concept of big sweatshirts comes from the Aran Islands, but it is certainly indisputable that they produced their local version of Guernsey sweaters made on the East coast of Britain. The work of texture and twists is in any case very comparable. The origin of Aran sweaters is in any case very controversial, some believe that the protagonists of the book of Kells (a religious manuscript of the year 800) wore it! This fact would make them about the oldest sweatshirt models in history. Others are more pragmatic and think that Aran sweater goes back to early 1900. From a feminine collective with entrepreneurial flair, who had the ingenious idea to adapt the Guernsey pullover using thicker wool to make it a real business.

It’s an Irish classic. Real Aran sweatshirts are true works of art with many myths. They were supposed to keep a seafarer warm at the same time and have enough precise twists to be able to identify them (or at least his clan) if they were found drowned. They are nowadays always handmade in Emerald Isle, and each sweater requires more than 100,000 seams.

Shaggy dogs

These are made from Shetland wool whose surface has been brushed to create a fluffy, cloud-like surface. These pullovers are extremely hot thanks to the warmth that this very particular texture can keep and be at one time rarely worn on the street, except for walking the dog. Shaggy dogs are very easy to wear with a button-down oxford shirt. One of the qualities of this type of sweater is the wide variety of colors in which they are available. Opt for sober colors, such as dark green or burgundy for early models.

You can also find more modern and assertive colors, but they are less coherent with the universe of this type of clothing and out of sync with its traditional side. Quality models are supposed to age well. Only downside: they will eventually fluff. Some people find it embarrassing and others feel that it gives a certain charm to the garment.

 

Are there alternatives to facelift surgeries?

There are various things that we can change about our body, but there is one thing that we cannot avoid – aging.

Stunning Hairstyles for Gray Hair

/

It is an open secret that gray hair color has evolved from an unwelcome sign of aging to a growing trend during the last few years. Indeed, gray, silver and white hairstyles are super popular with everyone now – from young girls to elder women.

And there are some reasons for that:

  • gray changes images dramatically
  • it works for women of all ages and all color types
  • looks great on different haircuts, from classic to avant-garde
  • is perfectly combined with basic and rainbow colors

Bright and elegant at the same time, the gray includes the spectrum of black and white – it unites the opposites. Maybe, this is the secret of the color’s popularity both with blondes and brunettes?

Nevertheless, there are also some downsides of gray hair:

  • first, the hair should be bleached (which is a harmful procedure for our locks)
  • the pure gray color is hard to achieve, so the hair should be dyed only in the salon (if you don’t wanna a greenish or yellowish outcome)
  • regular and intensive care for a silvery blonde is a must (and it’s rather pricey)
  • constant moisturizing and color protection are required
  • you should minimize all thermal procedures like blow-drying, using hair styling irons, because they damage the bleached hair twice more than the natural one

Benefits of Jeuveau – Is it better than Botox

Botox is the most popular neurotoxin which is used to fill the wrinkles. But now there is a new treatment for adults that was recently approved by the FDA and it is called Jeuveau. In this text, we are going to introduce you to this new anti-wrinkle treatment.

Just like Botox, Jeuveau is a neurotoxin that can be injected at the corners of the eyes or in between eyebrows with the main goal of stopping natural contraction of muscles that causes wrinkles. Not only does it prevent new wrinkles from forming but it also smooths out the existing ones.

Jeaveau is a 900 kDa purified botulinum toxin formula type A that can temporarily correct moderate to severe wrinkles in adults. As mentioned above, this form of botulinum toxin is injected into the 5 muscles locations that are most affected by facial movements. It stops the communication between nerves and muscles thus improving the quality of the skin. This drug is manufactured in first-rate facilities according to the precise quality standards.

Experts from beautyfixmedspa.com suggest that Jeuveau is a non-invasive and safe treatment. The whole treatment takes about 15 minutes and there is no need for rest afterward. When it comes to uneasiness, it is minimal since the small about of the toxin is being injected. The only thing that is required from patients is to hold their head in the upright position for 2 to 3 hours upon the treatment. After that, they can freely go back to their everyday life.

Side effects of this treatment are minimal since the treatment involves a small number of products. However, some minor side effects can occur such as swelling, bruising and redness around the site of injection but they will subside on their own. More severe reactions such as weakened muscles, droopy eyelids, and an allergic reaction are extremely rare.

Furthermore, the optimal time for visible results is 7 to 10 after the procedure, although some patients were able to notice the results after only 2 or 3 days. When it comes to the number and frequency of the treatments, patients need one treatment every three months.

Are there any differences between Jeuveau and Botox? Well, basically, no, these two treatments are similar since they are extracted from the same type of bacteria and they offer similar results. However, Jeuveau is created and produced with Evolus’s propriety Hi-Pure technology and it was also the first anti-wrinkle treatment that was approved by the FDA in the United States.

The greatest advantage of Jeuveau is its price. The price of this treatment is around 25% lower than the price of Botox treatment. Because of its price and efficiency, Jeuveau is expected to build a strong base of patients in a short period of time.

When it comes to choosing between Botox and Jeuveau treatment, it all comes down to the patient’s personal preference. If someone has already been treated with Botox, they can switch to Jeuveau treatment without any worry since there have not been any side effects concerning the interaction of these two treatments.

Laser hair removal is more than just eliminating unwanted hair. If you are considering to get laser hair removal, you should stop or limit waxing, plucking, or shaving for six weeks before the treatment. This needs to be done since the laser targets the root of the hair, which is usually removed by plucking or waxing. You should also avoid too much Sun exposure for 4 to 6 weeks before and after the treatment because the Sun ways will make the procedure less effective.

What to expect during the treatment

Just before the treatment is done your hair will be trimmed and the laser equipment will be tuned in order to fit the thickness, color, and location of the hair being targeted. Depending on the light used, you and the person performing the treatment might have to wear eye protection. It will also be required of them to protect the outer layers of the skin with a cold gel pack. This will help the light enter the skin more easily. After that, the medical technician will send a pulse of light to the specific area and they will check it for a few minutes in order to make sure that the setting is right for your skin, as well as to check for bad reactions.

What are peptides? Everything you need to know about them

/

Peptides are widely used in skin-care products and other cosmetics as well. They are especially popular in the beauty industry, and there are numerous benefits that they can provide us with.

In this article, we are going to cover peptides, what they are, how they can help us, and everything else that you need to know about them. So, without further ado, let’s begin.

What are peptides?

Peptides are basically naturally occurring biological molecules. According to researchpeptides.org peptides can be found in all living organisms, and they play a very big role in all manner of biological activity. Just like the proteins, the peptides are formed, or should we say synthesized, naturally from transcription of the genetic code, DNA. We are not going to go full scientific mode in this text, so let’s take a more practical approach and talk about their use in skin care products.

Science has proven that by implementing peptides in their formulas, when it comes to beauty products, they can help manage the wrinkles in your skin and also slow down the effects and signs of aging. This sounds great already, but we are sure that most of you are wondering how exactly this works. Well, here’s how.

Img source: biosyn.com

Our skin is comprised mostly of collagen. And collagen is a protein comprised of the longer segments of the amino acids, arranged like a chain. It provides a couple of things for our skin, such as:

  • Foundation and thickness
  • Smoother, tighter skin

As we age, the collagen in our bodies is getting depleted, which will result in losing all of the benefits that we just mentioned above. And, our smooth and young skin will become much thinner, and wrinkles will also appear. The main role of the peptides in situations such as this one is to inform the skin that it is losing collagen and that it needs to generate more. So, when you apply peptides on your skin by using a beauty product, you send a “message” to your skin that it needs to start generating more collagen. This is one of the best ways that you can “trick” your skin in remaining younger looking forever. Make sure to check out peptides UK if you are interested in supplementing with them and preserving your young look.

Often, we say that the outside beauty is what attracts, and the inside beauty is what keeps someone close to you. If you are someone who cares about their outside look, especially their skin, implementing skin-care products that use peptides is extremely helpful. There is nothing wrong with caring about how you look and preserving that young and beautiful skin. Some people are “forced” to look good at all times, simply because it is their job.

So, if you are someone who is involved in modeling or marketing certain beauty products, you certainly do not want to have wrinkles on your face, or signs of your skin aging on the rest of your body. There are almost no side effects of using any of the peptide-rich skin care products, so you should consider implementing them in your lifestyle if that’s what you care about.
