“People will stare. Make it worth their while.” Harry Winston.

The beauty industry is huge. British beauty sales exceeded £4 billion in the UK in 2016 for the first time, and those in the know are predicting that the industry will continue to expand rapidly. Why? Because the beauty industry involves every one of us. It is integral to our everyday lives. There was a time when the beauty industry catered only for the young, the fashionable and the cultivated but not anymore. Young and fashionable, yes; but everybody else too. Old, young, male, female, trans, large, small and every skin colour. There are products for every sector of the human race (and, now we touch upon it, animals too but that’s a whole different topic) and this is the site that will guide you through the myriad of products and services available.

Beauty is defined by the Oxford English Dictionary as: “a combination of qualities, such as shape, colour, or form, that pleases the aesthetic senses, especially the sight.” Any products that we use to guide ourselves to being ‘beautiful’ (i.e. pleasing to oneself or another) is part of the industry. Soaps, shampoos, deodorants and makeup included but also nose hair trimmers, heel cream and massage oil. The ‘Essentials’ and the ‘none essentials’, it’s all in. What’s important to remember is the age adage that “beauty is in the eye of the beholder” and this is where it gets exciting. This allows you, the individual, to explore, experiment and get creative. Do you want pastel pink hair with blue tips? Go for it; we’ll let you know how to achieve this look in the best possible way for you. Or do you just require the knowledge of which fake eyelashes stand the test of time? You can guarantee we’ll have reviewed some.

It’s not just the products we explore here, but services too. In this increasingly busy world, sometimes it’s nice to stop, relax and allow yourself time to be pampered. The range of services on offer today is incredible, from the good old fashioned spa to vibration therapy (yes, it’s a thing) and we will search through the array on offer to ensure you pick the right experience for you. We review the services available with honest and objective reviews so you can be assured that what you read is completely credible (hey, it’s a tough job, but someone’s got to do it!).

Never has beauty been more accessible to us! Yes, the stores still exist where you can wander in and get a make over in return for a small purchase of a product (and, while times have changed, it still feels pretty good to walk out of a department store post make over!) but now there’s so much more. Beauty and all it encompasses comes to us! The beauty industry no longer has to rely on a celebrity to set the latest trend (who remembers the ‘Rachel’ hair sensation?), but now we have access to every available style all of the time thanks to the internet. With this, consumer engagement is ever increasing, and we are bombarded with multitudes of styles, trends, products and services so it’s no wonder that sometimes we may get ‘lost’ in it all, a little overwhelmed. Which skin cream does smooth out wrinkles (do any?), which shampoo is the best for blonde hair and which razor will offer the closest shave?

We explore all. Navigate your way around the site to find product reviews, video tutorials, unique beauty blogs, tips, ideas and more to help you be who you want to be. Whether all you require is the knowledge on which deodorant is the strongest, or you want a full makeup tutorial for your upcoming major event, you will find it here, on ebeautylines.com. Welcome, and enjoy.

Foods to Avoid During a Diet

Foods to Avoid During a Diet

Dieting can be a difficult process. The most difficult phase is when you first start. It is very hard to keep up with it when you aren’t used to the diet just yet. However, with enough discipline and focus, it can be done! However, just to give you a head start, here are a few things that you should definitely avoid if you want your diet to be a success!

French Fries and Potato Chips

Potatoes in their natural form are healthy and good for you; however, once you deep fry anything, the majority of its nutritional value goes out the window! French fries and other deep fried foods are incredibly fattening and should be avoided at all costs!

Sugary Drinks

Sugary like artificial orange juices, coke, sprite, and so on are seriously bad for your health! Not only do they cause weight gain, but the sugars contained within them damage your digestive system over time. Because sugary drinks don’t register in your brain as solid foods, their entire contents are absorbed directly into your system. Any carbs within these drinks, of which there are many, are absorbed directly and pop out right on your stomach line! If you don’t want your belly sticking out, then I suggest that you stop drinking sugary drinks!

White Bread

White bread has been refined to death and contains many extra sugars. The value of grains is already quite low for your body; in fact, many diets omit grain-based foods completely! White bread is the worst by far as any nutrition that used to be on the whole grain bread has been removed, leaving only carbs and sugars!

Candy Bars

I don’t think this one comes as much of a shock to anyone. Candy bars contain insane amounts of sugar, non-natural oils, as well as refined flour, making them dangerously unhealthy. The average candy bar contains 300 calories on its own! If you really like your sugars, try a piece of fruit instead.

Pastries, Cookies and Cakes

Pastries, cookies, and cakes are filled with artificial flavours, refined sugars and flours, as well as a ton of trans fats that are responsible for a lot of today’s diseases!

Large Portions of Alcohol

In truth, the mystery of whether or not alcohol is good for you has yet to be proven. There seems to be some amount of healthiness in consuming moderate amounts of alcohol. However, when it comes to beer, there is no mystery that it is bad for your health. Beer can and does fall under the same category as sugary drinks, as that is basically what it is. Beer should be avoided completely, while other drinks, such as wines or whiskey, can be consumed in small or moderate amounts. If you drink too much at once, not only is it bad for your diet, but it is also bad for your overall health! Please do not overeat or over drink any of the above things! Avoid them at all costs so that you and your diet can have a happy healthy relationship!
