Reasons why your nails are discoloured?

nailsMany of us enjoy having a manicure and or pedicure. It’s the easiest way to make us feel relaxed and get pampered. Some may enjoy getting a new nail polish every week. You can visit your nail salon as often as you wish, but like many others, you may notice your nails starting to become discoloured and look a bit yellowish.

Why are my nails discoloured?

Discolouration can appear for different reasons. One of the main reasons is that your nail isn’treceiving enough air. When using nail polish, it can penetrate the layers of keratin on the nail itself. This can lead to the discolouration of your nails. Nail polish sitting on your nails for an extended period of time can cause nail discolouration.

Another reason includes fungus. This may require medical attention. The fungus can affect the appearance of your nails. If you’re not sure – see your doctor.

Lovely toesWhat can I do about nail discolouration?

You’ll be happy to know that to avoid nail discolouration, time is on your side. No need to fret!

How often should you be washing your face?

Beautiful LadyWashing your face seems like an easy task. In fact, for most of us, it didn’t seem like a chore at all but rather, a habit that you do every day. However, have you ever asked yourself if you are washing your face enough? Or if you have been washing too much? Washing your face too much or too little can lead to a variety of skin problems such as:

  • Over drying
  • Irritation and
  • Acne breakouts

To maintain your very best appearance and keep your skin healthy, it is important to know the number of times necessary to wash your face daily. While you think that washing your face too often can make your face cleaner, it’s not. It can actually strip your face of its natural moisture. Remember, some things can never be too clean, but your face is not one of these things.

Wash your face just right!

So how many times should you wash your face in a day? Where should you draw the line between the right amount of washing and what would be considered as over washing?Generally, twicea day (one in the morning and one at night) is recommended. It’s enough to take off the dirt and makeup traces on your face. However, there are factors that will affect the frequency of washing your face, such as the type skin you have and your lifestyle.

Type of skin

People with oily skin type should wash their face less often compared to people with a drier skin. Excessive washing on oily skin can strip your face of oil, which can cause your skin to produce more oil. On the other hand, people with drier skin are required to wash at least twice times a day, to remove the dirt and debris on your skin pores so your skin can breathe properly.


Do you do play sport? Chances are, you might have signed up for an afternoon workout so you may tend to wash your face three times. In the morning, after your workout and before retiring to bed.

How often should you be washing your face?

Basic FAQ’s about waxing at Active Skin Solutions

flawlessAre you tired of constantly shaving your legs? Have you thought about waxing? Waxing is an effective method to remove unwanted hair from all parts of your body. It could be your legs, underarms, chest, eyebrows or anywhere there is visible, unwanted hair. Many people choose waxing over shaving as it not only saves time but with waxing, you can enjoy silky smooth skin for up to 3-6 weeks.

Common questions about waxing

Some people become so used to shaving that they just aren’t comfortable with waxing. What if it hurts or causes me allergies? These are just a couple of concerns you may have. To learn more about waxing, here are the most asked questions:

Will the hair grow back thicker?

No! In fact, with continued waxing, the hair will actually grow thinner, finer and lighter. Because you are used to shaving and having smooth skin (for a day or so), a growing hair may appear thicker – but in actual fact, it won’t be.

Will I get ingrown hair?

This may occur because during the waxing process, your skin becomes firmer and will harden on those particular areas. Remember to always keep yourself hydrated and to exfoliate regularly.

Does waxing hurt?

The level of pain depends on your tolerance and the sensitivity of your skin. It may feel slightly uncomfortable but the finished effect is well worth a little bit of discomfort.

Will my skin become red and irritated?

Again, it depends on your skin’s sensitivity. Some clients may notice some slight redness, whilst others have no signs of irritation at all. Don’t be concerned though as these should disappear within 24 hours.

Getting pretty nails is the one thing only women can appreciate. When it comes to maintaining your nails, you don’t have to visit your salon every time.

How often should I get a manicure then?

In general, 3- 4 week spacing is recommended. However, the frequency of changing your nail polish depends on several factors which include:

  • Your lifestyle. If you have an active lifestyle, perhaps you prefer to have shorter nails. Shorter nails require less maintenance, as you don’t need to worry so much about breakages.
  • Your nail growth. The faster your nail grows, the more you’ll need manicure maintenance.
  • Type of nails, natural, prescription, shellacs
  • Your preference.No doubt, if there’s a party coming up – you’ll want your nails looking nice and pretty. The frequency of getting a manicure depends on your very own needs and wants.

Factors that affect how often you should get a facial

closeupWe all love having healthy, glowing skin! It makes you feel good about yourself. While some may be blessed with healthy skin, some are not. However, it’s not a problem at all because there is nothing that a facial treatment can’t fix. Yes, having beautiful skin is easy to achieve – with the right facial treatment. It’s as if you are naturally born with it!

When to do a facial?

When you discover facials and the effect it has on your skin, you just want to have them as often as possible. As much as you want to have another, straight after your facial treatment, you shouldn’t. There is no perfect facial cycle system you can follow because each facial treatment is unique. It varies from one person to another. Your friend might need a couple of treatments a month while you may be required to have just once a month. Yes, the frequency of facial treatment varies from each person due to several factors.

What are these factors that affect the frequency of your facial treatment?

Below are the list of factors you should know:

Skin type. The frequency of your facial will depend on your skin type. For oily and acne prone skin; you might be required to have a facial more than once a month – until your acne breakout has cleared up. As your skin improves, a visit to your beautician once a month for maintenance is a good idea. For sensitive skin types, once every two months is recommended.

Age. Younger people may require fewer facials because their skin naturally generates new skin cell growth. On the other hand, older people may require tweaking to help stimulate skin cell growth. The older you get, the more regularly you should pay your beautician a visit.

Environment. Where do you live? If you live in an area where there is air pollution, your skin may become dirtier than usual. You might need to be more serious with your once a month facial schedule.

Skincare goal. If you want to have the best skin possible, you need to find a good beautician. Booking regular facials as part of your beauty routine is a must!

5 nail polish mistakes you should know!

Pretty Pink Nails by Active Skin Solutions Beauty SalonGetting your nails done can be easy book your appointment today.

If you don’t want to have your nails done profressionally here are some some common mistakes that people make that can ruin your nails perfect finish and ho to avoid them.

Here are the top 5 nail polish mistakes you should know.

1.Taking a hot shower after applying a polish

Never shower immediately after applying polish. Exposing the polish to heat can cause it to bubble or smudge. Wait an hour or so after a manicure before you take that relaxing shower.

2.Going to bed after a polish

Although nails may appear dry after 20-30 minutes, it really takes up to 24 hours before the polish is fully dry.  If it is late at night and you need to get to bed, wait for the polish to start setting and then run cold water over your hands for about 3 minutes. It can help the polish set a lot faster.

3.Skipping the topcoat

It may seem like a time saver, especially if you are in a hurry but it can cut down on the shiny finish of your nails and can also shorten the life of your polish. For an even longer nail polish life span, apply a new layer of topcoat every other day.

4.Skipping base coat

A base coat smooths the surface of your nail for that flawless finish. It can also prevent the pigments of the nail polish from staining your nails. It’s an extra step but totally worth it!

5.Using one stroke to apply nail polish

One stroke alone cannot cover your entire nail. It’s difficult to get into your nails sidewalls and the cuticle area,but missing these areas can make your nails look unfinished. Apply nail polish to your nails in 3 or 4 strokes. Start in the centre near the cuticle, swipe to the right side, return to the starting point, swipe to the left side, return to the centre and swipe down the middle.

Five nail polish mistakes you should know!

Knowing these mistakes can help you get your nails done right the first time.

Now you can do it yourself but for a real pampering and a lot less fuss get a professional to do it for you.

What makes your skin look and appear unhealthy?

Image Skincare Beautiful skin starts with healthy skinA lot of women share the same dilemma – skin care problems.

Whether you have healthy skin or not, you need to have a proper skin care routine that you can complete daily in order to maintain or correct your skin problems. To make sure your skin gets the pampering and care it deserves, you first need to know what contributes to having unhealthy skin.

Your skin, like any other part of your body needs care and to make sure you are not triggering acne breakouts and skin dehydration. Here are the things that you should avoid to get better, healthy looking skin:

Drink more water

Not hydrating your skin: It’s time to drink more water – not only because it is good for your skin but it’s great for your overall health. Drinking 8 glasses of water and applying a moisturising cream can prevent acne breakouts and reduce the sign of aging.

Remove your makeup

Sleeping with your makeup on:This will clog your pores and prevent your skin from breathing. No matter how tired you are, always clean your face before going to bed.

Harsh Cleansers

Using harsh cleansers: This will only strip away natural oils that protect your skin against dirt and other damaging factors. Use mild cleansers instead – they are gentler and still effective.


Not enough sleep: Sleeping allows your skin to repair. Make sure to get enough sleep every day and you’ll wake up to a more fresh looking skin.

Use the correct amount

Thinking that more is better: When it comes to your skin, more is actually worse. More washing, too much cream or too much scrubbing can damage your skin and clog pores.

Correct order

Washing your face at the wrong time: Always wash your face after you have rinsed off your hair products. Some hair products contain pore clogging ingredients. Which when left on your skin for the night or day will damage your skin and not allow it to breathe.

Watch what you eat

Thinking that what you eat only affects your weight: Too many sweets and eating fatty food will not only make you gain an extra weight but will leave your skin looking unhealthy.

What makes your skin look and appear unhealthy?

Your skin will look healthy and fresh – if only you know what to do and what to avoid doing. For all of your skincare problems, contact Active Skin Solutions. We can provide you with different skin care treatments tailored for your individual needs. For a fresher and younger looking face, ring us today for your appointment. Be kind to yourself!
