Perhaps the secret to playing a vice-chairman in his 30s (What’s Wrong With Secretary Kim?) and then going on to play an underdog highschooler (Itaewon Class) isn’t just getting a different haircut.

You can get creative and make a multisensory experience by adding purple food coloring and dried lavender buds to playdough you’ve scented with lavender, which would be great to calm an overstimulated child. You could also add green food coloring and peppermint oil, which would also be cooling! How much fun is that? They won’t even know they are getting the benefits of the oils while they engage their senses.
Avoid water-based manicures because the nail polish tends to chip away faster. Your nail bed absorbs water and expands when dipped in water and goes back to its original shape after being taken out of the water. Applying nail polish when the nail bed is expanded is not good because once it shrinks, the nail paint cracks, leading to chipping. Instead, go for an oil-based manicure, where you cleanse your nail and nail beds with an oil-based formula. Back To TOC
In general, you should be washing your face daily—even if you haven’t worked out. According to the American Academy of Dermatology, how you wash your face can make a difference in your appearance. Be sure to use a gentle, non-abrasive cleanser that does not contain alcohol (which is drying). Use lukewarm water—and resist the temptation to scrub your skin, as this only irritates it. Pat your face dry gently and apply moisturizer. The Academy advises limiting washing to twice a day and after sweating.

It will not only make you cynical, but also keep you bothered which will hasten your overall aging process.
Sleep wrinkles?! Even with a flawless skin care routine, using the best skin care products, you can still wake up each morning with sleep wrinkles if your bedsheets and pillowcase are made from coarser fabrics. As you get older, sleep wrinkles can occur because your skin loses collagen and elasticity. If you sleep on your side or front – the pressure, friction and compression from the weight of your head on the pillow or bed can cause your skin to fold and crease. With younger skin those folds and creases fade quickly due to plenty of collagen and elasticity in your skin. But as you get older those sleep lines tend to stick together more and deepen. Leaving permanent sleep wrinkles on your face. To help reduce skin creases, instead of using bedsheets and pillowcases made from coarser fabrics, choose materials that are soft, smooth and silky – with a high thread count. If you sleep on your side, try switching sides occasionally or sleeping on your back, so your face doesn’t wrinkle over time from pressure in certain areas. But, don’t stress about this… ultimately, you want to be comfortable because high-quality sleep is essential for natural beauty. Want some more beauty sleep tips? Here’s a few from my friend Kathy Smith.
When we are stressed, travel, or experience extreme weather conditions, our skin can appear dull or shriveled. And, as we age, our skin becomes less resistant to life’s daily stresses so it can appear more and more unhealthy. If your skin is properly hydrated though, it gets a boost of elasticity, while your complexion becomes more youthful. And one of the best moisturizers for your skin is an acid your cells naturally produce to maintain moisture levels: Hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid, or Sodium Hyaluronate, is a wonderful hydrophilic ingredient. Which means it readily binds to water and has super moisturizing properties. Hyaluronic acid is found throughout your body, but it’s especially concentrated in your skin and helps promote cell regeneration. Because of its high water-binding capacity, it acts as a hydrating agent and space filler. So it supports the collagen and elastin in your skin by keeping them nourished and moist, and reduces the appearance of wrinkles while keeping your skin soft, smooth and supple. You can find Hyaluronic acid in some natural skin care products. And you can learn more about moisturizers in this video.
If your skin is ashy, make one easy change: Don't dry it completely before moisturizing. Creams seal in hydration and work best with a little water. —Hirsch
But why stop at one sheet mask when you can also do two or three? Park Min-young, who was Park Seo-joon’s co-star in What’s Wrong With Secretary Kim?, keeps her skin plump and healthy by going through at least two to three face masks a day. “There are days when I have makeup on for many hours, so I try to take off my makeup every break I get in between filming and put on a mask. I can use up to two to three masks a day when filming,” Park Min-young told the Singaporean press in an event.
