Most people make the same mistake by indulging in a holiday that does nothing but make them even more tired. Instead, they should focus on their health and well-being.
The best thing to do is go to a health or wellness retreat that will give your body the necessary relaxation and so much more. It’s an excellent way to give your body that extra boost of energy that will provide enough of a push to feel relief from everyday stress.
Wellness retreats are also excellent to take care of those long-neglected well-being goals. These health retreats keep you active through having fun in a stress-free environment that will reenergize you. Most of them are placed in beautiful surroundings, which can be quite soothing.
Natural wonders, biking trails, and natural thermal springs are just some of the interesting and exciting things you can enjoy.
Enhance your well-being with a wide range of healing and wellness activities. With all that in mind, here are some compelling reasons why wellness retreats are good for your health and skin.
• Stress-free environment
Wellness retreats are mostly located in extremely beautiful surroundings, which is excellent for all those who need to de-stress. These health retreats are good for numerous things, as they provide a stress-free environment that helps beat insomnia, de-stress, eat healthily and get fit, among many other things.
Then, there’s also the benefit for your skin. In natural surroundings, you get a chance to escape all the daily stresses.
In fact, if it’s de-stressing that you need, wellness retreats offer the most excellent destressing methods such as spa treatments, detoxing, and meditation. Take a healing holiday and feel healthy, energized, and refreshed.
• Specifically designed wellness events
Not every wellness retreat is the same. Different retreats offer different events which are intended to provide relaxation and refreshment in exquisite surroundings.
These feel-good treatments offer an excellent way to take care of not only your health and mind but your skin as well. Tanning is fine, but it isn’t so great for your skin, especially if you overdo it.
You can pick specifically designed wellness events that will provide special treatment for your skin. For example, if you’re having trouble with fine lines and wrinkles and you want to do something good for your skin, a facial treatment with the Premier Dead Sea mud mask seems like an excellent way to take care of those dehydrated areas in the skin, as well as prevent the appearance of fine lines.
Picking a wellness event with such treatments will leave your skin beautiful and smooth, as the minerals found in the Dead Sea mud can do wonders for your skin.
• Not all wellness retreat focus on the same thing
There’s a wellness retreat for any taste. In fact, most of these retreats tailor their events and treatments to better suit the needs of their customers.
Whether you’re just looking for a healthy getaway, to lose weight, take care of your digestive problems, solution for your skin condition or just some stress relief, health retreats are the best way to take care of your health and reconnect with nature.
Most people use these retreats to take care of their health problems, as sometimes natural and traditional ways give the best results. People who suffer from any skin condition and are fed up with chemical treatments often turn to natural means.
Well, a wellness retreat that offers an excellent skin treatment with the Dead Sea Minerals might just be what you need to reap some important benefits such as:
- Removal of the dead skin cells
- Anti-wrinkle treatment
- Skin perfecting
- Age-defying daily skin care routine
If you want to read more about the benefits the Dead Sea minerals provide for those with damaged skin, all the information you need can be found here.
• Avoiding bad habits induced by routines
Everybody needs a change from their daily routine, as people are used to bad habits induced by those routines. They easily get absorbed into that bad routine that makes them neglect relaxation and they fail to take some time off to take care of their health.
The truth is, wellness retreats provide life-enhancing experiences. They allow you to break your habits and routine, disconnect from daily stress and just let go of all the pressures you’re used to on a daily basis. This makes you stronger, healthier, happier, and more positive.
• A time to focus on you
Most people forget how important it is to focus on themselves and their health. Modern life offers so many distractions but a wellness retreat helps you disconnect and take some time to take care of yourself.
With proper fitness and health professionals at your side, spending some time in a wellness center helps your sleep, skin health, stress relief, anti-aging, detox, weight-loss, and so much more. If you’re interested in giving it a try, pay a visit to Zing Events wellness retreats for the best experience.

Red hair has been inspiring a lot of people! And if you want to go for a gorgeous red hair color, I have picked 25 red hair ideas and photos to inspire you in this not so usual hair color.
• 25 Red hair color ideas & Photos:
A red hair can be done in many shades, from the lightest to the darkest, there’s always a shade to please which one of you and every style, the important is to always adapt the right red hair color to each skin tone.
Thinking about the red hair color that matches your specific skin tone is the most important step when choosing a red hair color for you. Then looking for some inspiration and ideas from hair color photos is always very useful to choose the final shade for your new look.
Another very important information to adhere to a red hair color is to remember, as in any other hair coloring, your hair will need a lot of care and you’ll need to treat your hair well before, during the process and after the coloring process, to keep your hair healthy and always beautiful.
I classified the pictures of red hair ideas between shades of lighter, brighter and darker hair colors, so you can choose the red hair color that you like best and pick your favourite color for your new hair change.
• Red hair color: light shades
Among the shades of light red hair color is the famous “strawberry blonde”, a light reddish-blonde hair color that has been very successful among several celebrities and is a hair color that creates a mixture between a redhead and very delicate blonde hair color.
Options for red hair color in lighter shades are very delicate and they are also the choice of many celebrities who had their hair dyed red or even were born with natural red hair color:
Another trend among red hair colors and shades is the so-called nude red hair, a redhead tone that is actually created with a certain basis in the person’s natural hair, creating a perfect shade for each skin tone, that’s why it can vary from person to person as it is created according to the natural color of your hair.

One of the world’s capital of fashion and design, Milan is a city full of events and one of the important one for who loves or works with architecture and design is the Salone del Mobile and the Milano Design Week in Milan (also known as Fuorisalone), that will be taking place this April, between 09/04 and 14/04.
For the 2019 Milano Design Week, the 5VIE, an integrated design district here in Milan is preparing a lot of interesting exhibitions and events. I’ve been present on the press conference a couple of days ago and here are the main attractions of the 5VIE for this Milan Design Week.
• 5VIE for the Milano Design Week 2019:
The 2019 edition of 5VIE is bringing art+design and it embraces experimentation more openly than ever to cultivate an even more international presence. This year’s goal is to consolidate their reputation as a cultural reference point, bringing together plurality of thought and international heterogeneity.
Cristina Tajani, Councillor for Labor, Manufacturing, Fashion and Design Policy, explains that “the presentations and installations proposed by 5VIE help implement the Administration’s mission to spread the vitality and creativity of Design Week to every part of the city. We believe that the Fuorisalone represents not only a great opportunity for operators in the design sphere to get together and compare notes, but for the city to offer the possibility of approaching beauty and craftsmanship through the new creative languages of design, which are often contiguous with the long artisanal traditions specific to the various quarters of Milan. An opportunity to explore the world of design, which draws strength from the collaborative efforts of the Municipality of Milan and the operators in the various districts, united by the desire to promote the city under the banner of creativity and innovation.”.
Every year, 5VIE dedicates the Milano Design Week to a great master and for 2019 their guest of honor will be Ugo La Pietra, an artist who established his reputation back in the late ‘50s and whose production has since explored an incredible variety of creative techniques. His exhibition is entitled Design Territoriale, Genius Loci.
• List of Events and Exhibitions of the 5VIE Milano Design Week 2019:
Here’s a list of exhibitions, attractions and events that will take part on the 5VIE district during the Milano Design Week 2019 edition. The list is divided according to where it will be taking place:
- SANT’AMBROGIO e dintorni
– CARLO MASSOUD – THE FISH AND THE CROWD (curated by Maria Cristina Didero
Address: Oratorio della Passione, Piazza Sant’Ambrogio
The Fish and the Crowd is the first solo exhibition by the young Lebanese designer in Italy, and brings together a number of objects created since the designer started his studio in Beirut in 2013 until today, combined with a new production realized for the occasion.
Carlo Massoud is interested in translating the world surrounding him into every day and lively objects. For the 2019 edition of the Milan Design Week 2019, Carlo Massoud has reimagined the space of the Oratorio della Passione through a new collaboration with his sister Mary-Lynn with whom he has created a collaborative brand new project. In the space of this jewel church a number of objects play the role of an imaginary crowd, seated on benches. For The Fish and the Crowd Carlo and Mary-Lynn Massoud quote the classical icons of Christianity and its liturgies (the religion they also belong to) to involve the viewers in an intense and ironical reflection suspended between the physicality of the objects and the spiritual tension of the context.
– ANTON ALVAREZ – L’ULTIMA CERA (curated by Nicolas Bellavance- Lecompte)
Address: Chiesa di San Bernardino alle Monache, via Lanzone 13
The work of artist and designer Anton Alvarez is futuristic and primitive at the same time. With the exhibition L’Ultima Cera, Anton explores an ancient material in a new and innovative way: bronze. Commissioned by curator Nicolas Bellavance-Lecompte and produced by 5VIE in collaboration with the Fonderia Artistica Battaglia in Milan as part of their new program of commissions and residencies, Alvarez adapts his machine, called ‘Extruder’, to work with wax. The extruder is a large metal cylinder hung from the ceiling by chains, using an electric motor to exert more than 2,000 kilos of pressure on the wax, pushing it through different moulds and cut-outs into a pool of cold water, where the artist uses his hands to give the wax its final form. When the wax is set, all the pieces are cast in bronze, each one-of-a- kind. Alvarez produces twelve pieces, this being the first time that an artist has approached bronze with such a technique.
– FORO STUDIO – RUG-O-RAMA
Address: International English Centre, Via Medici, 15
FORO Studio + Alessandro Iovine present Rug-o-rama, a series of carpets in different materials intended as an homage to the city of Milan. With the ardor of a lover, the designers seek to capture the many identities of the metropolis, making its beauty their own, filtering it through the attentive eye of those whose work is dedicated to bringing the tangible closer to the intangible. The challenge is to transmit the power of a place to a furnishing element – a carpet in this case – where the physicality of the materials encounters the ephemeral nature of emotion and memory. The final product is therefore rooted in the territory, but at the same time free to tell multiple stories in multiple places. The concept involves the use of recycled materials from local industries and artisans in the furniture sector, with the aim of giving them new life, transforming them into unique objects. The carpets are hand-woven on a reticular support that ensures structural integrity. The exhibition will guide the viewer along a visionary and varied path in search of the right perspective from which to admire the many facets of Milan.
– DAVIDE GROPPI – SPAZIO ESPERIENZE
Address: Via Medici, 13
Light to see and feel people and space.
Light like a vision, but also like a feeling.
Light expressing mystery, deep reflection and seduction.
– LIZARD – ANA POPESCU
Address: Via Circo, 1
Lizard for Design Week 2019 presents a small selection of Ana Popescu’s acrylic paintings. Born in Romania, grew up in France and now lives in Vienna. Her work is a constant experiment trying to combine formal elements such as shape and color. She is mainly inspired by architecture – Bauhaus and socialist modernism. Each one of her projects tries to render simple scenes in something more complex.
Arkana is a polish brand I’ve been really enjoying for skincare and I tried the Arkana Cannabis Clean Foam, so here’s my full review after trying this cleanser foam for a couple os months.
I must confess that the first time I saw this product almost a year ago on the Cosmoprof, I thought that “cannabis” was quite a new thing as an ingredient, then I’ve noticed over the last months a lot of brands launching products using it on their formulation, and it became a trend on skincare lately.
The Arkana Cannabis Clean Foam contains Hemp (a variety of the cannabis sativa plant) + Poppy oil. The cannabis sativa oil is antioxidant, a super moisturiser, it has calming properties, provides deep hydration and revitalisation for the skin. Therefore, it’s a great ingredient to be part of a skincare product.
So now back to the review of this cleanser foam that I’ve been really liking.
• Arkana Cannabis Clean Foam (200ml) Review:
I’m a big fan of foam products to use as a face cleanser, they are my favourite kind of product for washing my face morning and night. So I was happy to try this one.
I’ve been using the Arkana Cannabis Clean Foam over the last months both morning and night, so I could really try and put it to the test. This is a face and body foam, but I’ve been mainly using it on my face, since it is recommended for dysfunctional and irritated skin and face skin is always more sensible.
This product is really gentle and it didn’t cause any irritation on my skin (which is quite sensible) and I also felt it didn’t leave any weird sensation (like those products that make your skin dry and you can feel it after removing the product), it actually leaves my skin feeling clean and soft, even using it twice a day.
Since I love wearing makeup, my skincare routine is really important and the cleaning and washing steps are always very important for my routine. I usually use a makeup remover and then a facial cleanser to wash my face with, but the Arkana Cannabis Clean Foam claims to remove the makeup too, so, of course, I put it to the test!
And I was so surprised! I actually just decided to try it today, before writing the review (no idea why I haven’t tried it before this way🙈), and I was so surprised how well it removed my makeup: full face (foundation, highlighter, powder, eyeshadow and even my mascara). I washed my face with it, then I did a little test: with a cotton embedded with makeup remover, I checked how my skin was and the cotton went out clean! I can’t believe why I wasn’t just using it before.
Therefore, the final veridic is that I really like this foam cleanser by Arkana: it cleans well, removes makeup and doesn’t leave the skin dry.

Which one were your favorite hair style idea? The first or the second one?
Well, I also have 8 more hairstyle ideas for a party that you can find bellow.
If you’re up to a more elaborated hair idea, this one is perfect! This one is such a cute and sweet hairstyle for when you’re feeling more romantic! And the Valentine’s Day is just around the corner.
If you want a hairstyle idea that will keep all your hair together, what about a long and full braid? I love wearing it on the side, it makes the look more elegant and lovely! To a very modern touch, just choose a loose braid, like this one:
Fashion styling tip: wearing your hair on one side is perfect for backless dresses and tops, it creates a very sexy and elegant look. ;)
When talking about party hairstyle ideas, it’s impossible not to remember the classic up-do of all time: a bun! This is the perfect hair for outfits that have too many details on the top, like embroidery or when you want to wear long or big earrings, it keeps your hair out of your face creating a whole harmonic look.
If you’re more into a beautiful hairstyle idea with loose hair, the classic curly and voluminous hair could be the perfect choice for your party! To have very shiny curls, don’t forget to add a few drops of the Nature Spell oil after your hair is curled, just like I did in my hair tutorial above.
It makes your hair super shiny and it also looses a bit your curls, so it helps them look more natural and modern.
For a very modern and cool hair idea, a very loose braid is the choice, different of the braid in this blog post, in this one my hair is even looser, making it a very natural and cool hair idea, in a very effortless chic mood.
If you want something more simple and easy to do, you can definitely do this hairstyle by yourself in a few minutes! Perfect for a night out or a special dinner, I just did two small braids, one in every side of my hair and left them loose. It gives a special effect of a different hairstyle, but it’s super easy and fast to do, perfect even for the busy days.
Who said boxer braids can’t be classy? Wear them shiny and with your party dress, paired with beautiful accessories and you’re ready even for a party!
Another classic that couldn’t be left out of my 10 hairstyle ideas is the fishtail braid! A more complex and chic way of braiding your hair that can be lovely for a party:
Needless to say that for a perfect hairstyle for any party or for the daily life, you always need to take good care of your hair. And a shiny hair is synonym of a healthy hair and a great way to take care of it and to leave it moisturised is through hair oils. The 2 in 1 Natural Amazonian Sacha Inchi Oil by Nature Spell has been my hair oil choice over the last weeks since I first tried it.
The Sacha inchi present in this oil can eliminate unwanted dandruff while locking in moisture to prevent split ends in your hair, using it regularly can improve your hair healthy, moisture and shine, and you can notice how your hair is shinning from the first time you try it. I love using this oil when my hair is wet before drying it with a hair dryer, but I also use it on the hair ends after I finish drying my hair or when I use a curling wand.
You can get 10% OFF on the Nature Spell website with the code “10ML2018” to try (and love!) their amazing hair & body oils!
So what was your favorite hairstyle idea?
