Color correction under or around the eye area can be tricky, but it doesn’t have to be if you know which shades work best for your complexion. Fair skin tones can use a light peach corrector. Medium skin tones can opt for a true salmon shade, and deeper skin tones should try using orange red corrector.

When it comes to camouflaging the look of tired eyes, less is more. Packing on concealer will only make the appearance more pronounced, especially if you are using a concealer that’s too light for your skin tone. People commonly make the mistake of applying concealer that’s too light, thinking it will lift tired-looking eyes. Instead, it looks startling and gives an almost vampire-like look where you end up looking sick.

If you have been rubbing products on your eye area, you are applying the product the incorrect way. I was taught that you should use a soft tapping motion, as rubbing will only aggravate the skin around eyes. The patting motion will keep the concealer in place to deliver maximum coverage. Tapping the product into the eye area really marries the product to the skin naturally because the skin has oils in it, which break down the product much better.

Stay clear of eye-shadows that are too dark (blues, blacks, deep grays, etc.) if you are having any issues around the eye area, ie dark circles and spots. Go for a brighter neutral shade to help perk up the look of your lids. Definitely stay away from anything with pink or blue undertones. Go for warmer tans, browns, and golds.

What Is Causing Your Itchy Scalp?

Having a dry, itchy scalp is an annoying skin condition. Find out why your scalp is itchy so you can take steps to get some relief.

Is itchy evera good thing? The answer has to be never. And when it comes to your scalp, this kind of irritation is often accompanied by embarrassing flakes. Here, skin and scalp experts explain what could be causing your scalp to itch.  Dandruff is the most common culprit to blame for an itchy scalp. The medical condition of dandruff is caused by an overgrowth of yeast.  The yeast normally live on your scalp and in other hairy areas, such as the eyebrows, the ears, and men’s beards. With changes in body chemistry, the yeast overgrow and feed on your dead skin cells and oils, which causes the itching and flaking.  To properly control dandruff, you need to eliminate its fungal component without creating more irritation and redness.

For mild cases,  use an over-the-counter shampoo that contains selenium, zinc pyrithione, or tea tree oil, all of which help control yeast. If your scalp is not itchy but more flaky, then try a salicylic acid shampoo to reduce buildup. More stubborn cases may require a prescription antifungal shampoo or cortisone foam, or, for especially severe cases, anti-yeast pills. Scalp itch can also result from trips to the hair salon. Repeated chemical hair treatments like permanent color, relaxers, and keratin treatments can sap your scalp of moisture.

Another culprit could be a daily blow-drying habit. The excessive heat can irritate and dry out the scalp. Avoid using the hair dryer at its hottest setting, especially when hair is very wet. That’s actually the hair’s most fragile state. 

An itchy scalp can also be an allergic reaction to certain hair products. Some products, such as hair sprays, contain ingredients that tighten as they dry. This causes a slight pulling sensation on the scalp, leading to itchiness. Sometimes the root of the problem is environmental. Other factors that contribute to scalp irritations include exposure to cool environments with low humidity, and the effects of wind and sun.

The way back to a healthy scalp (and healthy, shiny hair) begins with upping the moisture. Avoid hot water when washing your hair, because it can strip the natural oils from your scalp, making it very dry and sensitive. 

Sometimes an itchy scalp can be a red flag signaling other, more serious medical conditions. If your scalp develops thick, scaly patches that hurt, crack, or bleed, you may have psoriasis — a chronic autoimmune disease that appears on the skin. If, along with the itchiness, your hair is falling out or breaking, you may have ringworm. If any oozing occurs, or a crust develops or pus appears on the scalp, you could be suffering from a staph infection. Your safest bet is to consult your doctor with any concerns about an itchy scalp.

Look for moisturizing and protective ingredients like dimethicone, a silicone compound that smooths the hair surface, making it shiny also I recommend using a good conditioner to soothe the scalp and leave hair moisturized.
