The glorious optimism of spring is a common theme in nail salons, and it's not that hard to see why — the sun is out, we feast our eyes daily on budding flowers, lush leaves, butterflies and first red fruits of the season; so much beauty and life coming up at once, everywhere.
Enhancing the overall look and shape of lips continues to be an obsession of ours — lips are, after all, the (literal) gateway of expression! An abundance of lip treatments, both needle-involving and add-to-cart ones, and lip coloring products, speak of our desire to express ourselves via lips as capriciously and comfortably as we want to, when we want to. They remain a weapon (bullet lipstick, anyone?), and it's no wonder we want to embellish our trusted weapon.
Try to learn about an Aries woman and you'll discover that, among other traits, the energetic Aries likes to make her presence known, loves self-conquering and requires quality and as less fuss as possible.

Aries women would like a finished look (and for it to be achieved quickly), so multipurpose makeup products would be something they would most often reach for.
Seasons are changing and so are our skin's needs. To prepare our skin for new environmental conditions and adjust our skincare routine, New York-based licensed esthetician, Eden Gilliam states that professional treatments should make up about 25% of our skin health, or should be done at least seasonally.

This does not mean disregard all commitments in favor of comfort, but rather that, at times of freedom, we need to be just as invested and present with activities whose only purpose is to either rest or recharge us in ways that work for us. Working from home has become the reality of many, significantly more post-Covid. This is a huge change in lifelong, similar routine for a lot of people, and adjusting to new circumstances of that magnitude, and the impact on our lives going forward, quite understandably brings on burnout, depression and anxiety — the most common signs of poor mental health.
