Braun Facial Epilator & Cleansing Brush

If you’re an eyebrow lover, like myself, then this product is your must-have. I’ve been in love with cleaning & shaping my eyebrows since I was a teenager. I got so good at it that my relatives and friends would cue in line for me to get theirs done. I went through all traditional ways, threads and tweezers. Never did I think that there will be another, much better, alternative.

Braun came up with an elegant invention that will clean your sensitive facial areas with the most precision. The extra slim head captures the finest hairs down to 0,02 mm. It is also considerably faster and more thorough than manual tweezers. However, it is not to be used for shaping your eyebrows.

The Braun Facial Epilator & Cleansing Brush also strikes on what most of us women care about the most: cleaning our faces. Best advise is to make this a part of your shower routine as the brush gently removes the dead skin preparing your skin to absorb your creams.

I had the pleasure to interview Dr. Gabriele Stahl, who’s responsible for The Braun Facial Epilator & Cleansing Brush, and who gave some valuable advise on our beauty regime:

Dr. G

1. As a practical woman with minimum time for pampering herself, what is the best beauty/ facial regime that I, and every woman like me, should follow?

The key to a healthy skin is simply the result of a healthy and well balanced lifestyle. Just apply sunscreen, eat healthy, do not overdose on creams and make up, and make sure to clean your face in the evening after applying any cosmetics and before you apply your night cream.

Her answer reminded me of one my favourite speeches/ song: Everybody’s Free to Wear Sunscreen by Laz Buhrmann . You should listen to it :)

2. Is it healthy to apply a face cream after using the Braun exfoliating option?

Depends on the type of cream, and the skin type. For example dry skin would best suit a thicker moisturizer, oily skin would benefit from a moisturizing gel – but for optimal results it’s better to use the Braun cleansing brush, then use the epilator at the end of the day and apply your care cosmetic product.

3. Could the Braun facial epilator cause the new hair to grow thicker or more intense?

Not at all; epilation has been proven to be the best hair removal method as it removes hair from the root and does not irritate the skin, It is much faster and more thorough than tweezers. It removes four times shorter hairs than wax, so you don’t have to wait for the hair to be completely visible. It is much longer lasting up to 4 weeks. And finally, you can epilate at home or on the go, no need to run to that threading appointment.

4. What product or technique should we follow in order to clean and what techniques should we follow in order to exfoliate since both use the same head brush?

Braun’s deep-pore cleansing brush is six times better than manual cleansing. The cleansing brush preps the skin to absorb products more efficiently and leaves women with visibly brighter skin. The brush can be used every day on cheeks, T-zone and chin for a more radiant skin. Apply soap, gel, cleansing milk or scrub on your wet skin. Switch on the brush and start on the forehead. You can move to the nose and then outward towards the cheeks on either side. Spend more time on oily zones. It can also be used on the neck and décolleté. Exfoliation can be done with your favorite cosmetic exfoliation product and we recommend only 1 x per week.

5. Is it safe to use the head brush after tanning?

Yes absolutely; it would help clean up your pores from all the oil and dirt which can accumulate when then skin is exposed to the sun. Make sure to regularly apply sunscreen not just when tanning.

6. Can the Braun epilator be used on body parts other than the face?

Mechanically, it will work on other sensitive areas. However, it is not recommended to use one device on multiple body areas due to hygiene reasons.

 

  1. كسيدة عملية ليس لديها الكثير من الوقت لتدليل نفسها، ما هو أفضل نظام للجمال والعناية بالوجه الذي يمكن لي وللسيدات مثلي اتباعه؟

أساس البشرة الجميلة والصحية هو أسلوب الحياة الصحي والمتوازن. استعملي مستحضرات الوقاية من الشمس وتناولي الطعام الصحي ولا تفرطي في استعمال الكريمات والمكياج، واحرصي على تنظيف الوجه دوماً في المساء قبل وضع كريم الليل.

  1. هل من الصحي وضع كريم الوجه بعد تقشير الوجه باستخدام براون؟

يعتمد ذلك على نوع الكريم ونوع البشرة. على سبيل المثال، يناسب المرطب السميك البشرة الجافة، بينما تستفيد البشرة الدهنية من جل الترطيب، ولكن للحصول على النتائج المثالية عليك استعمال فرشاة براون لتنظيف الوجه ثم استخدام آلة إزالة الشعر في نهاية اليوم، وبعدها وضع المستحضر الخاص بالعناية. 

  1. هل يمكن أن تسبب آلة براون لإزالة الشعر نمو الشعر أكثر سماكة او خشونة؟

أبداً. لإزالة الشعر بالجهاز مزايا عديدة، منها نزع أقصر وأنعم الشعرات من الجذور، كما أنها أسرع 200 مرة من الملقط اليدوي وأكثر شمولاً في تغطيتها، لتشمل الشعرات الأقصر بواقع 4 مرات مقارنة بالشمع، مما يعني أنه لن يكون عليك الانتظار حتى نمو الشعر كي يصبح مرئياً يمكن إزالته. تدوم فترة النعومة لمدة أطول بكثير (تصل إلى 4 أسابيع) مقارنة بكريمات إزالة الشعر. وأخيراً، يمكنك إزالة الشعر في المنزل أو خارجه، ودون الحاجة إلى تحديد مواعيد في مراكز التجميل.

  1. ما هي المنتجات أو الطريقة التي يجب اتباعها لتنظيف وتقشير الوجه بما أن كليهما يستخدمان نفس الفرشاة؟

فرشاة تنظيف المسامات من براون أفضل ست مرات من التنظيف العادي، وهي تنظّف البشرة بعمق ليسمح لها بامتصاص المستحضرات بكفاءة وسرعة، وبالتالي تتمتع المرأة ببشرة أكثر جمالاً ونضارة.   يمكن استعمال الفرشاة يومياً على الخدين والجبهة والأنف والذقن للحصول على بشرة أكثر نضارة. ضعي الصابون أو جل التنظيف أو الحليب المنظف أو المقشر على البشرة الرطبة. شغلي الفرشاة وابدئي من الجبهة، ثم انتقلي إلى الأنف وبعدها إلى الخدين من كلا الجانبين. خصصي وقتاً أطول للمناطق الدهنية، ويمكن استعمال الفرشاة أيضاً على العنق وأسفله.  يمكن إجراء التقشير باستخدام المنتج المفضّل لديك، وننصح به مرة واحدة فقط في الأسبوع.

  1. هل من الآمن استعمال الفرشاة بعد تسمير البشرة؟

نعم آمن تماماً، فهي ستساعد في تنظيف المسامات من الزيوت والأوساخ التي قد تتراكم على البشرة عند تعرضها للشمس. احرصي على وضع مستحضرات الوقاية من الشمس في كل وقت، وليس فقط عند تسمير البشرة.

  1. هل يمكن استعمال الآلة في مناطق أخرى من الجسم، إلى جانب الوجه؟

من ناحية ميكانيكية، تفيد الآلة عند استخدامها في المناطق الحساسة. ولكننا لا ننصح باستخدامها على أجزاء الجسم المختلفة لأسباب صحية.

Loving Tommy Hilfiger AW15 collection!

The Tommy Hilfiger are opening their flagship store at Mall of the Emirates in Dubai, UAE, beginning November 1, 2014. I’m pleased to have seen and tested a part of the Hilfiger Collection where its pieces are made with luxurious and premium quality textiles, such as Mohair and wool, and designs manufactured in Italy.

Here are some of my favorite looks, where I particularly love the styling:

 “I am excited to introduce Hilfiger Collection in the Middle East at our Mall of the Emirates store,” said Tommy Hilfiger. “Our consumers in the Middle East have always appreciated the quality, luxury, versatility and sophistication of our designs. Hilfiger Collection introduces an elevated interpretation of our ‘classic American cool’ spirit that further emphasizes our presence in the market as a premium designer brand.”

The Hilfiger Collection is inspired by the great American outdoors, all evident in the collection’s luxurious reinterpretation for today’s adventurous young woman. The looks features an eclectic mix of technical mountaineering gear, western workwear and saturated plaids that take on a youthful, bohemian sensibility when mixed with rich velvet, suede, and leather. Rugged performance materials are used to create classic silhouettes for a look that’s tech meets trad with an adventure-ready spirit. This is one of my favorite Hilfiger collections to date.

I by Aiisha – SS14 Primrose Path

While each person sees beauty in their own way, I see it in the surface of water and listen to it in the sound of wind hitting the tree branches. I take real pleasure in staring at human’s pupil and compare its beauty to a land with lines of rivers and mountains. I appreciate the complex process that results in a experiment of different colors.

This collection embraces the Primrose Path of everything beautiful I see, feel and breathe.

Like a movie in my head, I saw the high contrast of colors, characters experimenting with their bodies, one’s side and their vices. I saw my character’s own face in the mirror reflecting a different personality to the one standing. Like my collection, each piece appeals to contrasting personalities, and contrasting styles, appeal to the same personality.

The use of eco-friendly premium quality textiles was evident. Moving towards a more responsible and simple state of mind in a world full of complications. This collection enjoyed neon colors as well as classic tones. Silk, French laces, guipure and jacquards were the core textiles of this collection. Clean lines remain the essence of I by Aiisha without leaving out the beauty of soft silks creating a vision and feel of luxury.
