Who doesn’t want healthier, more beautiful skin? The multibillion dollar beauty industry is proof that both men and women everywhere are willing to spend large amounts of money on a vast array of products and innovative gadgets, all in the hopes of boosting their appearance and achieving better looking skin. The truth is that you don’t really need to blow all your savings on products to be more beautiful—you can simply make smarter, healthier beauty choices. Here are a few easy steps you can take to achieve healthy, beautiful skin.
When choosing the right products for your skin, pay attention to the ingredients lists and stay away from products that contain a lot of artificial ingredients and chemicals. Well Within Beauty is a beauty and wellness brand that offers a comprehensive range of high quality, well-formulated skincare products that promise to take care of your skin without any harmful ingredients. Their formulas are clean, natural and organic, free of harsh and potentially toxic chemicals that could damage your skin or cause other health issues.
Their beauty philosophy is centered on the belief that beauty begins with feeling well on the inside as well as on the outside, and that good nutrition and a healthy lifestyle can help you achieve this. Besides skincare products, you can find articles on their website promoting healthier eating, living and beauty habits.
Never Skip Sunscreen
Leaving your skin exposed and unprotected against the harmful rays of the sun could make you vulnerable to a whole range of skin problems including sunburn, dark spots, hyperpigmentation and skin cancer. Many people skip wearing sunscreen every day because they find it heavy and greasy, but fortunately these days there are plenty of new, lightweight formulas that are comfortable on skin while providing adequate sun protection. For healthier skin, do not skip the sunscreen, even on cloudy days.
Change Your Eating Habits and Have a Balanced Diet
It’s not a myth—what you put into your body eventually shows up on your skin. Numerous studies have shown that changing your eating habits can boost your skin’s appearance and even help to clear acne. For brighter and more radiant skin, load up on fresh fruits and vegetables, which are packed with vitamins and antioxidants that help protect your skin and to give it a healthy glow. Cutting down on sugar and dairy products can help to reduce acne and inflammation, in addition to helping you lose weight!
Exercising isn’t just good for your body—it’s also wonderful for your skin. Regular exercise increases blood flow throughout your body, which in turn helps to nourish your skin cells and to keep them vital. It also helps to flush out toxins and free radicals which could cause skin problems from your body. Lastly, you’ve probably heard this before, but exercise makes your body release endorphins, which trigger a happy, positive feeling. A positive, joyful demeanor can go a long way towards making you more attractive.
Drink Plenty of Water
Water is just plain good for you in so many ways. Drinking enough water every day helps your body and skin get rid of toxins. Staying properly hydrated plumps up your skin cells, making your skin look less wrinkled and more fresh, clean, clear and radiant. Getting enough water is one of the simplest, easiest, cheapest things you could do to achieve better health and more beautiful skin.
As you can see, making healthier choices can go a long way towards becoming more beautiful. You don’t have to spend a lot of money or start a complicated, tedious and expensive skincare routine. Simply treat your body better and nourish it from within, and you will not only look more beautiful, but you are also guaranteed to feel more beautiful.

While all aspects of weddings including outfits, wedding cake, flowers and even wedding rings are totally optional, the wedding venue is something that simply cannot be skipped. After all, it is the place where you and your dearest friends and family members will celebrate the happiest day of your life, right?
Finding the right venue that will fit both your budget and your needs can be quite a difficult task. The range of options is so huge, that you probably won’t even know where to start. And that is how this guide was born – to help poor lost souls like you find their dream wedding venue. Take notes.
Ask your wedding planner
Before you even start checking potential venues out, consider talking to your wedding planner first – they pretty much seen it all and know it all. Your wedding planner will do all the necessary research for you, tell you all about the capacity and layout of the space and list all the things you are going to need in order to transform that place according to your personal preferences.
Know the guest list
Before going on a venue hunt, it is important to know how many guests your future venue will need to be able to accommodate. This way you will save yourself a lot of energy. Besides, a general advice is to make the guest list first and not to move to anything else until it is done.
Set your budget
This is the aspect that is going to take around 40% of your budget. Simply renting a certain place isn’t enough – you have to think about decorations, floral designs and many other elements that will require both your attention and money. Therefore, a good idea is to set an exact wedding venue budget. Set more funds aside for things with a higher priority, and for God’s sake do not stress yourself out. Why would you even think about a $20,000 venue if you can only afford a $5,000 one? It will just destroy your mood and waste your time.
Location is important
Would you be okay with providing transport for all guests? If, on the other hand, all of them are driving, is the venue’s parking space big enough? Is the parking free? Even transport expenses can leave a big dent in your budget, so make sure you don’t neglect them. Opt for an easily reachable venue. If you are an Aussie from Sydney, you will not have any problems, because 90 percent of wedding venues in Sydney are amazing in every single aspect.
Know what’s included
If you, for example, are aiming towards full-service venues and ones that allow couples to bring their own staff and décor, take your time to determine the prices of everything. Believe it or not, sometimes you will find a venue fully equipped with tables, chairs and linens for a less price than a venue where you are required to rent your own. This is why you should compare the prices of more than two rental companies and find what suits you best. However, have in mind that most included rentals are the most basic ones like standard flatware and white linens, so you will still end up paying more if you don’t pay a really close attention to what precisely is offered.
Does it fit your needs?
Here is a simple example: let’s say you would like to have a ceremony, a cocktail party and the reception all in one venue, but the venue you’ve picked doesn’t have three separate areas for that. If this is the case, check if they are offering the flip option. This basically means they will be able to turn the ceremony room into a reception area while you and your guests are attending a cocktail party in the other room. Of course, this also needs detail planning: you need to know how will they do it, where will they store reception tables and décor, will this require renting things like fabric wall in order to ‘hide’ all the items, is the space all-weather-appropriate etc. This is going to help you predict all the possible additional costs.
Keeping it authentic
Lately, social media like Instagram and Pinterest pretty much dictate all the trends and can easily have an impact on people’s choice ofž both wedding theme and wedding venue. And it usually happens because they fall in love with that amazing photos and decide to copy those sceneries for their special day. Have in mind that this is your wedding and that it should reflect YOUR tastes and YOUR memories, and that it is something YOU will remember forever. The space, the wedding dress as well as everything else should entirely be a representation of who YOU are.

Even though it is February, it is never too early to start preparing both your body and your mind for summer. And to make sure it all goes well, simply follow these important tips.
First things first, even though you consider booking vacations and buying new swimsuits as summer prep, your skin needs to be fully prepared for the upcoming season as well. You need to take a few steps before laying on that sunbed.
Make it glow
Regardless to the season, a lady should never neglect the importance of exfoliation. This will help your skin achieve that healthy, smooth and glowing look, which is exactly what you need. However, you have to do it with care – your only goal is to lift that outer layer of dead skin cells without stripping your skin. Make sure you use special polishing cloths, brushes and scrubs that will help you smooth away the roughness.
Regardless of whether your skin is dry or acne prone, it still needs to be moisturized. If you don’t give your skin its essential hydration, it will begin to feel dry and tight – which is the last things we want during hot summer months. Also, moisturizer is what protects your skin from every rough element in your surroundings. However, during summer, opt for a lighter moisturizer than the one you’ve been using during winter, with serums that are rich in hyaluronic acid and of course SPF.
Root out that unwanted hair
If you are planning on spending your summer days laying on a beach or poolside, you might need to put some effort into removing all that unwanted hair from your body. But once that wax strip is ripped off, you have to take care of that skin area. First, give your skin some time (at least 48 hours to be exact) to recover before going outdoors and exposing it to the sun rays. After all, follicles are pretty vulnerable to irritation, and your skin may be sensitive.
On the other hand, if you are not a waxing type, you can always opt for a new cosmetic hit called laser hair removal – which is both less painful and more long-term.
Clear the breakouts
When summer approaches, you no longer have to just worry about the acne on your skin, but on your body as well, since covering is now not an option. Luckily, the approach for treating acne on your chest, back or anywhere else is pretty much the same as treating facial acne. Don’t pick, exfoliate regularly and treat with products that contain salicylic acid which will help you slough off the dead skin cells, and micronized benzoyl peroxide that will penetrate the skin and kill the acne-causing bacteria.
Treat your feet
Since they’ve been stuffed inside winter boots for a couple months now, your feet could probably use some love as well. If you don’t have time for a pedicure at the salon, there is a great way to soften them while you sleep. Remove the thick skin with a file, then apply a rich ointment and cover them with a plastic wrap and cotton socks. Leave overnight and repeat every day to achieve smooth skin, and once you do, repeat once a week to maintain it.
Don’t skip your workouts
Winter is the time when you are sculpting your summer body. In other words, this is the time you have to give your 101 percent. Go running in the morning, lift weights, or whatever it is that you do. Do your absolute best to be at your hottest looking self this season. And if you haven’t been working out over the past few months, don’t despair – you still have enough time to build your summer body. There are tons of workout programs online that can help you achieve your goal.
Update your diet
Workouts will do nothing if your diet isn’t balanced. First of all, you need to make sure you are always hydrated – drink at least 2 liters of water each day, and avoid low temperature and artificial liquids. In the morning, drink a glass of warm lemon water which will do wonders for your mood and your metabolism. Second, avoid salty, spicy and sugary foods and focus entirely on lean protein and a calorie deficit. Incorporate fruit and whole grains into your nutrition as much as you can. If you don’t know what to eat, note that the internet is filled with this kind of content, so you can search online for ideas.
So there you have it, the ultimate tips for your summer prep. Make sure you follow them all in order to achieve the best possible results.

To set together a sensible chart of the best DJs in the world can be quite tricky. It’s not only about the music they play, quality of their mixes and overall popularity. One could also judge them by the quality of their background show which could be determined by the quality of their stage lighting, laser displays systems, SFX and other effects that production may use for the show.
Some DJs are more popular and mainstream than others. According to Google, the most searched for are:
A Dutch DJ and producer. He came onto the scene in 1994 and in 2013 he won ‘Best DJ of the Last 20 Years’.
David Guetta hails from France and does it all! DJ, songwriter, record producer and mixer. Although he started his career in the 80s, he didn’t release his first studio album until 2002.
Another DJ with Dutch heritage. For the past two years he’s been leading the top 100 list of world class DJs, as voted for by DJ Mag.
Although he is only 21 years old, he is taking the world by storm. He credits his decision to become a DJ to Tiesto’s performance at the Olympic Games in Athens in 2004.
Sonny John Moore is an American electronic dance music producer, DJ, singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist.
He sang with a few bands before continuing as a solo artist in 2007.
Since then he has won 8 Grammy awards.
Calvin Harris is a Scottish record producer, DJ, singer and songwriter.
His debut album was released in 2007 and straight after his two songs reached the UK Top 10. He was the highest paid DJ in the world for three years straight – 2013, 2014 and 2015.
Could be a coincidence, but Tiesto, David Guetta and Skrillex all utilised Kvant laser displays systems in their shows at some point and their performances are always rated as some of the best because of the atmosphere and the production elements.
