4 beauty resolutions you need to make this year




There is no better time than the New Year to break your terrible beauty habits; a new Year, a new set of beauty habits!

However, 2022 is not just about tossing out old mascaras and promising to visit the hairdresser more often; it is also about making positive changes that overhaul your whole skincare routine.

Here are four important beauty resolutions you must make in 2022:

1. Wear sunscreen daily

It is critical to remember to apply sunscreen every day of 2022… and beyond. Otherwise, you could be putting your skin at risk.

Sun damage and skin cancer are caused by ultraviolet radiation, which are always present. Wearing sunscreen every day can help you avoid years of sun damage, delaying the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Although the melanin in your skin protects you from sunburns if you have a darker complexion, you must still protect your skin from damaging ultraviolet radiation.

People with fair skin are more likely to get skin cancer as a result of sun exposure, but those with darker complexion are more likely to develop more dangerous types of skin cancer. As a result, everyone, regardless of skin tone, should use sunscreen every day.

2. Throw out expired products

Do you have dirty make-up brushes, empty bottles, and expired foundations in your beauty drawer? Make a resolution to clear it all up in the new year, and make it a regular habit.

A dirty beauty drawer can be a subtle source of stress. Our surroundings, according to Psychology Today, can have a big impact on our mood and behaviour. In brief, clutter might have negative consequences such as increased anxiety or difficulty concentrating.

Additionally, dirty make-up and skincare items may harbour harmful microorganisms. If you do not dispose of expired products and empty bottles and clean up your make-up tools, the germs might linger and contaminate other products – and eventually, your skin.

3. Wash make-up brushes regularly

Cleaning make-up brushes and beauty blenders can be tedious. But just like going to the gym, you will be glad you did it!

There is nothing as satisfying as when you sit down with your sparkling clean set of brushes the next day to do your make-up. And just like working out, cleaning your make-up brushes pays off in the long run.

Dirty brushes can be disastrous on your skin. When your make-up brush touches your skin, it comes off with oil, dust, dead skin cells, and bacteria – and the next time you use the same dirty brush on your face, new breakouts and blemishes appear on your otherwise flawless skin.

4. Try something new

How adventurous are you when it comes to your skincare and beauty routines? While having tried and trusted products and routines is admirable, make a resolution to have fun with your beauty care in 2022. Instead of being stuck in a beauty rut, be bold and daring.

Every now and then, go out of your way to try something new, even if it is not necessarily ‘you’. How about a new shade of lipstick? Some new nail art? A hair colour that you have never tried before? You won’t know how something looks on you if you do not try.



4 social media hacks every small business owner should try




Running a business might have been your new year’s resolution, but that doesn’t mean that you can get by on vibes alone.

If you’re trying to run a business this year and it’s mainly going to be online then we’ve got some incredible hacks that will make all the different aspects of managing and marketing an online business so much easier.

1. Use Influencers To Share Your Business Ads

If you’ve started a business online you would have also created various social media pages for that business. However, if you’re just starting out, it’s very unlikely that you’re going to have a lot of followers or a high engagement on any of the social media platforms. That’s where influencers come in. You can reach out to these people with huge followings and get them to share your business ads on their page.

2. Don’t Just Market Online. Use Offline Strategies As Well

Just because your business is an online business doesn’t mean that all your marketing for the business should be online. If you’re on campus you can also print some flyers to be shared in the shuttles or you can put some flyers up on your hall’s notice board. People who see your flyer will be that much more likely to look your business up online whenever they need the particular product or service that you’re offering.

3. Set-Up A WhatsApp Chat Bot

Another hack you can use when you’re just starting out with an online business is creating automated responses on your WhatsApp business account. For this, you’ll need to download the WhatsApp Business app on the Play Store or the App Store. Once you’ve set up automated responses your customers can get answers to frequently asked questions without you ever being online.

4. Use Buffer To Share Posts Across All Your Business Social Media Pages

Managing posts across multiple different social media platforms can be difficult if you’re not good at multi-tasking. Luckily, there are platforms that let you put all the social media accounts for your business in one place in order to manage them more easily. One of those apps is Buffer. On the free plan you can schedule and share to your different business social pages.

5 things married men say to convince single ladies



married couples

Some men are straightforward enough to confess that they are married.

If she is unlucky, he will lie to her that he is single until she starts getting calls from his wife or she finds out by herself that he is married.

Here are some lies they say;

Unprovoked, these men are more than ready to drag their wives to the gutter when it comes to performance in the other room or general behaviour like cooking and cleaning and these statements are usually lies.

In the history of words that have no meaning, this ‘separation’ these men speak of tops the list because they are still legally married and do not intend to leave their wives for any woman.

Lies and more lies. As if the imaginary edge they have given another woman over their legally married partners should count for something.

Most times, they promise to leave their wives for the younger woman. Take those words with a pinch of salt.

Indeed, some of their wives are aware of their husband’s philandering and perhaps because she refuses to say anything, these men have concluded that it is okay to just continue.

Most married men who cheat love the idea of having a wife and children, but that is where it stops; it is just an idea. They would still much rather enjoy the freedom they had when they were single.

Some single young ladies do not mind too, so it turns out to be the perfect adultery recipe.
