Sun Damage, How To Prevent It.

As warmer weather approaches, its time for fun in the sun!  I don’t know about you but I love a good jog in the early morning followed by an afternoon at the beach or maybe lunch outside at my favorite café. Whatever it would be you obviously want to be cute wearing those tank tops, sleeveless dresses and showing off some legs *wink*, Of course, there is one thing we should all be mindful of…The sun.

 

Sun damage to your skin can put you further at risk of cancer. Besides that dreaded C word, it can also cause other damaging problems such as abnormal discoloration and wrinkling. We did our research and here are some great and fashionable ways to help prevent sun damaged during this spring and summer:

Ways to prevent it:

Sunblock is a must! I try to keep it at 30SPF or higher and use daily! Also, try to use a moisturizer for your face with SPF, saves a trip for going to the store twice.

ChapStick- Not only will your lips thank you, you can also get a huge variety of flavors and types; anything from normal Chap Stick to lip balms and glosses.

Sunglasses- keep your eyes happy and also helps protect the skin around your eyes against UV rays.

Hats! Great for covering your head. This can help with your scalp and also help cover your face to prevent skin damage.

Use an Umbrella! UV is strongest between 10-4. Why not bring it out in the sun.

   We definitely love this vintage look from the 70's and it's coming back! Modernize the look by blending it throughout the entire eyelid. This a great look for both night and day. 

 We recommend: Dior Eye Reviver Backstage Pros Illuminating Neutrals Eye Palette, $62.00 (it is alittle pricy, but worth every cent!)

2. Flushed Cheeks

     I don't know about you, but adding a little color to my complexion is always good. Whether it is adding to your look for an evening out, or just a nude look during the day, it definitely will complete your look.

3. The Cat Eye

      This is an all-time favorite of ours! It definitely never goes out in style. These days, this oldie but goodie is rocking it with a sharp angle look at the end of the eyelid. It's sexy and sassy.

Our recommendation to get this look: MAC Liquid Last Eyeliner, $21

4. Metallic blue shadows

      I love adding a little risk to my makeup (especially when I'm out for good night of dancing), which is why I definitely recommend metallic blue shades. 

Our recommendation: Prismatic Eyeshadow, at Ulta.com for $5.99

Tips & Tricks For Your Hair This Spring

Hello ladies. The first day of spring was the 21st and you know what that means… Warmer weather! We hope anyway. The climate change not only affects your wardrobe but also your hair! Here at BPure Beauty Bar, we would like to give you some great tips for products and services we think would be helpful for this season.

 Curls and Frizz

            For those of you with this weather change, you experience drier hair (and drier climates) you hair becomes brittle and dry and even feels like straw (curly girls I am talking to you since coiled hair is drier by nature). Here are some tips and products you could use to help treat and prevent this issue:

  •   Take a breather on those hot tools (straightening irons, blow dryers etc.). Let your hair dry naturally and show off those gorgeous curly locks
  •  Implement more moisture into your hair care regimen with hydrating shampoos and conditioner. We also recommend a Hair Mask with coconut milk or argan oil for an extra moisturizer for those locks. I personally enjoyed this one:  Gariner hair masks it works wonders for me!
  • Bring out those silk or satin pillowcases and sheets or use a satin-lined nightcap.
  • For hair that is already dried, try awapuhi wild ginger styling treatment oil. It quenches parched hair and smooths frizz, leaves strands soft, silky and gives it that rich salon treated shine. It is a light weight formula and gives a natural finish to your styling routine. We love the product and you can get here at BPure Beauty Bar. We highly recommend it.

 Too Oily

So let's face not having enough oil is tough, having too much is just as frustrating. Many people get too much oil in their hair for many different reasons. It can be from putting too much product in your hair and your hair and scalp just need a simple detoxing. You could even be just touching your hair too much. There are definitely ways to help prevent and manage oily hair.

  • Wash a little more. Shampooing gives you an opportunity to clean out the dirt and oils in your hair. Using a great shampoo option is important. We recommend Scruples Clarifying Shampoo It is great to use daily to clean out oil and product.
  • An egg yolk mask is a great natural and affordable for a little extra help. Egg yolks have a high sulfur content, which can help relieve dandruff and greasy hair symptoms. Also, egg yolks contain lecithin and protein, which can help strengthen your hair while providing it with a softer, shinier appearance.
  • Make sure your brush or comb is clean before using it. Keeping a build up of old dirt, dandruff and oils in your hairbrush can lead to getting more oils in your hair. 


Damaged by over-processed hair

 

Let's face it, the spring and summer are great times to reinvent your look. Coloring your hair is always fun, exciting and brings a new feeling for yourself. Without the proper hair care for colored hair, then it can get dry and feel unhealthy. Here are our beauty tips for managing your hair.

  • Like our curly hair friends, over-processing your hair can easily damage it and leave it dry and weak.  We definitely recommend and use Paul Mitchell awapuhi ginger Microsmooth shampoo and conditioner for frizz control.
  • Again a hair mask is definitely a great additive to our ideal regimen when dealing with damaged here. A little bit of coconut oil as well goes a long way for your hair. 
  • Want to take a natural route? Apple Cider Vinegar is a great miracle working with not only body health benefits but also hair. Add a little bit of egg whites and olive oil for protein and shine with your hair.

Best Perm Styles For This Spring!

Ladies, spring is just around the corner. It’s time to get that new style you’ve always wanted, whether it’s the latest trends in clothes, makeup and one of my personal favorites… HAIR! I love knowing the latest trends in hair and this season an oldie but goodie is back and redesigned the perm! Perms have always been known for its tight, well-defined poodle curls. But 2018 has brought a whole new way to define the perm and B Pure Beauty Bar loves them all. We picked five of our favorite perms that are in this season.

1. Natural or Perm? Perm

Our first choice is for you ladies who want to keep the natural look going. This perm
gives you the luscious, sexy curls. This textured curl look is in and it looks more amazing then ever!
You know what they say: go big or go home.


2. Mohawk perm

Want to really re-invent yourself this season? This double daring style is a must try (if
you are up for the fun challenge). It’s daring to sport the Mohawk, why not add a little curl
and volume to top it off?


3. Super defined root perm

For those of us who want to have those beautiful, well defined bouncy curls, this perm is
for you. Get the luscious locks you’ve always wanted. This style will lift your hair from the
roots to give loads of volume and tight curly-Qs.


4.  Beach Waves Perm

Unwind with the laid back, chilled beach girl look. Perms don’t always have to be tight
defined curls anymore. Get this look with the help of an Olaplex Perm.


5.  Big Body Perm

that special oomph for the evening out with your girls or an afternoon out.
