Tattoos are beautiful artworks that you might have been admiring on others skin. The intricacies of the design are alluring and prompt the craving to get one for ones self.

It doesn’t help that most of your favourite music artiste, actors/actress, sport player flaunt their tattoos every chance they get. So, if you are considering getting a tattoo or several beautiful pieces of art or script on some body part, here are guidelines on how to go about it.

Tattoos are Forever

Tattoos are last forever. So before getting a tattoo, be certain that you want it so you don’t end up regretting them. Be sure of the location you want it on too. Do you want a visible one or hidden one? A quick one: Laser removal is more painful and more expensive than getting a tattoo. Be ink sure.

Preparation is Key

Hangovers aren’t the most pleasant experience. When coupled with tattoo appointment? Disastrous! Alcohol consumption is not advised a day before your appointment. Alcohol levels will thin your blood and can cause excessive bleeding during the session. Stay hydrated by drinking lots of water to keep your skin healthy. You may also start moisturizing a week or two before. If you have deep cuts or scratches, wait till they are healed.

Get plenty of rest before the big day to avoid being grouchy and fidgety which would affect the outcome of the tattoo.

Money, Money, Monneeeyy

Tattoos don’t come cheap! If you aren’t ready to spend don’t even think about getting a tattoo. Find out how much tattoo sessions are before deciding to get one. Some tattoo parlours charge a fixed cost others do per-hour. Make your inquiries thoroughly. Also, avoid the temptation of getting inked and a cheap shanty. There are a thousand an one things that could go wrong. It’s always best to get tattooed at a certified tattoo parlour, even if they are expensive.

It HURTS!

We would not shy from the pain that comes with getting a tattoo. It hurts! The threshold of pain everyone has varies so brace yourself for the accompanying sting. The throbbing pain may leave you light-headed or faint. Eat a good sized meal and take along sugary snacks to help restore you blood sugar levels to avoid fainting.

Details

Do a research on tattoo artists; show each one the design detail you want and go with the one that you are sure understands your specification. You should have a reference photo of the design, what size you’d want it and the location it would be. If you are going for a script, choose the font and make sure you proofread it before it is done to avoid stories that touch. Once you are inked, you are INKED!

stubborn black spots remedy

I’ve had black spots on my face for as long as I can remember. The old ones fade off and new ones reappear and no home remedy or product ever seemed to work for me until now.

I read up on the goodness of native black soap on the skin a few weeks ago and finally decided to give it a try. I had to find a way to incorporate the native black soap into my daily skin care routine

Here’s how I did it:

Prepare The Black Soap

I got the raw native black soap from the local market so I had to do a little mixing. Put the dry black soap chunks in a container and dissolve it with a little water and leave to sit for a few hours. Be careful not to use too much water as the mix is supposed to be in paste form, not liquid. Use about half cup of water to 200g of black soap.

Squeeze out the juice of one full sized lemon (the kind we buy at grocery stores, not the local breed.) Mix in the lemon juice with the black soap paste.

Apply

Right before you go to bed, take a little quantity of the black soap and lemon mix and rub thoroughly all over your face. If you have an open wound or scratched pimple, it will definitely burn. Ensure you do this AFTER you have taken your bath. Leave it on overnight and go to bed. Wash off with warm water the next morning.

Black soap is the perfect stubborn black spots remedy because it works like an astringent. It pulls the oils out of your skin and leaves your skin clean and smooth. It also has anti-inflammatory properties which directly attacks swollen zits.

The lemon is a brightening agent and this helps in fading off the black spots. That is why it has to be the second ingredient in this stubborn black spots remedy.

Repeat

This is not some magic cure. It requires patience and consistency but you will start to see visible results after three days. Repeat the process for one week and your black spots will be completely exterminated.

How To Wear Prints Just Got Easier With Shaffy Bello's Amazing Style!

How to wear prints has gotten easier with Shaffy Bello showing us the way.

The screen goddess has a certain way with fashion that makes us want to age like her. Hopefully, it comes with her sense of style. And when it comes to knowing how to wear prints, she really has no competition.

How To Wear Prints Just Got Easier With Shaffy Bello's Amazing Style!

No one who loves fashion can resist staring at Shaffy Bello’s pictures. This African woman with a pretty face comes with style we cannot deny.

How To Wear Prints Just Got Easier With Shaffy Bello's Amazing Style!

(Photo: Instagram/IAmShaffyBello)

That’s why we’re learning how to wear prints from the one who does it really well – Aunty Shaffy! So, here are a few things we learned from stalking casually looking at her page.

It’s okay to step out of the box

You don’t have to always play by the rules. Because sometimes, breaking the rules work. A rule would have been to pair this yellow, red and brown print with one of those colours, but nope! Shaffy decided to try some white and it works! The white enhances the print without foregoing its pristine nature. If prints intimidate you, try something less intimidating.

Prints come in various styles and patterns, so if you feel overwhelmed by one, try another one. We adore this red number Shaffy has on. It has minimal floral prints that sit on a bold red. hat more could you be looking for in a red carpet look?

Let the print work for you

A lot of people get this wrong, especially when it comes to tailor-made clothes. If you’re working with a fabric that has certain print placements, be strategic about where they fall. Shaffy’s jumpsuit with off shoulder bell arms is a perfect example. The major prints are placed centrally to make the outfit look more tapered.

Go big or sit down in a corner

We would like to start by saying this jacket by Ade Bakare is everything and more. Here’s another lesson – if you’re going to wear a statement printed piece, keep everything else minimal. Imagine this jacket on a print skirt or trousers. It could spell chaos.

Pair your prints with the base colour

This look makes us feel so old. Shaffy gave this look something extra by draping this black see-through floor length jacket on it. It adds a certain sex appeal thanks to the fabric and brings some modesty to an otherwise risque outfit.

There you have it – proof that Shaffy doesn’t just know how to act. She’s a boss when it comes to knowing how to wear prints too! Tell us, what are your tips for wearing prints?

Speaking of prints, here are some ankara print outfits to wear to slay that owambe dead!

How To Know If Your Skin Is Dry? We Have 5 Physical Signs To Guide You

How to know if your skin is dry? Well, there are a couple of ways. The skin comes in different textures and types. However, all skin types can get dry and we can tell you how to know.

It is very easy to know if your skin is dry. Our skin usually gives us tell-tale signs like scaling, flaking or when the skin feels rough. Besides these common signs, there are some not-so-common signs that you could be missing totally.

Let’s break them down for you. This is how to know if your skin is dry

It looks dull and tired

Dehydrated skin always comes off as dull and bland. When your skin has moisture it usually gives off a luminous glow. It looks plump and radiant, while dry or dehydrated skin is the direct opposite. In some cases, it can enhance wrinkles and cause you to look older.

You’re breaking out

Breakouts don’t only happen to oily skin. It can also affect the dry skin. When your skin’s outer layer experiences any type of change or disruption, it could result in inflammation. So if you notice your skin isn’t oily but you have breakouts, your skin could be really dehydrated.

It gets itchy and feels unusually tight

You remember how your skin feels during the harmattan period? Well, that is basically how your skin would feel if it’s dehydrated. You might also experience some light itching as you work your face muscles. Be careful to make sure that you don’t scratch the skin as it is very fragile at this stage and could lead to injuries on the skin’s surface.

The skin feels rough and looks scaly

As we mentioned earlier, rough and scaling skin are some of the more obvious signs that your skin is dry. You might see actual skin hanging off your skin. In this case, try not to tug them off as they could lead to tears in the skin.

Cracks and pain occur

Speaking of tears in the skin, if you see cracks and are experiencing pain on your skin, then it is definitely dry. As the skin’s barrier is lacking moisture, it starts to struggle to perform its functions and could cause pain in the process.

Now that we’ve sorted out how to know if your skin is dry, what is the solution? Well, we have tons of articles on restoring moisture to your skin. For example, look out for these ingredients in a moisturizer to get rid of dry, itchy & scaling skin. You can also create your own moisturizer with these simple ingredients. And if you’re in the mood for a stay-at-home spa-cation, try this DIY Moroccan Hammam bath.
