We all want to look good!

Women spend a lot of money for beauty products, diet supplements and Spa therapy. But we cannot forget that our food is very important too! Nothing is better than natural vitamins! And that’s why “5 a day” is a must to keep healthy and good looking skin, hair and nails.


Vitamin A

Vitamin A regulates the size and function of the sebaceous glands. Lack of it causes: dry flaky skin.

How much Vitamin A is enough?
It’s recommended that women consume 800 mcg and men- 1000 mcg of vitamin A daily.

Top sources of vitamin A:
* Beef liver
* Egg yolk
* Cheddar cheese
* Fortified milk


Vitamin B

The B Vitamins play very important role in cells metabolism. Lack of Vitamin B causes: redness, tenderness, cracks at the corner of the mouth and wrinkles.

How much Vitamin B1 is enough?
Women should consume 1.1 milligrams and men- 1.5 milligrams of Vitamin B every day.

Sources of Vitamin B1:
* Yeast
* Liver
* Pork
* Whole-grain cereals
* Rye and whole-wheat flour
* Wheat germ
* Navy beans and kidney beans

How much Vitamin B2 is enough?
Women should consume 1.1 milligrams and men- 1.7 milligrams of riboflavin daily.

Sources of Vitamin B2:
* Riboflavin-enriched breads and cereals
* Red meats
* Green, leafy vegetables
* Dairy products


How much Vitamin B3 is enough?
Women should consume 15 milligrams and men should consume 15 to 19 milligrams daily. Tryptophan is an amino acid serves as a Vitamin B3 equivalent. Sixty milligrams of tryptophan is equal to 1 milligram of vitamin B3.

Sources of Vitamin B3:
* Meat, poultry, fish
* Peanuts
* Yeasts
* Milk and eggs

How much Pantothenic Acid (Vitamin B5) is enough?
Lack of Pantothenic Acid is rather rare. Normal daily intake of Pantothenic Acid for adults is 4 to 7 milligrams.

Sources of Pantothenic Acid:
* Peas and beans (except green beans)

How much Folic Acid (Vitamin B9) is enough?
Men need 200 micrograms of Folic Acid and women need 180 micrograms per day but if you are pregnant, your daily needs increase to 400 micrograms. Now you should eat foods fortified with Folic Acid and also take the supplement to be sure you and your baby are getting appropriate amount of B9. Breastfeeding mothers need 280 micrograms per day.

Make Up

Martyna has a very clear and beautiful skin, thats way I decided to use a light foundation. Then I cover the dark circle under her eyes. Beige and Turquoise are perfect colours for her brown eyes. I made a’la smoky eyes. Then I applied a golden-brown bronzer to made her face glamorous looking. For the end I used light beige lipgloss. It is a day look, perfect to “wear” to work or shopping with friends !

Cosmetics I used:
– Elizabeth Arden Flawless Finish Skin Balancing Makeup (buff)
– Elizabeth Arden Sheer Lights Illuminating Pen Concealer (natural)
– Urban Decay’s Foreshadow Eyeshadow Palette
– MAC Lipgelee (moonstone)
– Prescriptives, fresh cut cheek color


I’ve decided to straighten her hair just a little bit.

This is so exciting! We are proud to announce the opening of new section: MAKEOVERS!

Want to look like you just stepped out of the salon? Are you all talk and no action when it comes to changing your style, make-up, haircut? Let our makeovers inspire you to make a change! Go ahead, you can do it!

“Nothing makes me feel so happy than to give someone
the power and confidence they didn’t know they had.”
