Q&A: Hairstyling Product Build-Up

Posted by Dior Co on Thursday, January 2, 2014, In : Tips 
Q: Dior, I'm a model and my hair is suffering from too much hair products applied almost everyday at shoots. I need something to "detox" my hair from all the product build-up. Help!

A: I understand your sentiments. Sometimes, my hair too just feels weighed down, extra greasy, and just won't behave itself! What you need is a good clarifying shampoo to remove residue, product build-up and dirt from your hair strands. Products such as hairsprays, mousses, and gels; even hard water, chlorine and ...

Q&A: Irritated Skin

Posted by Dior Co on Monday, November 25, 2013, In : Tips 
Q: I have dry skin and lately, it gets irritated easily. Any product I use makes me itch and breakout. What can I do to reverse my sensitive skin? What products would you recommend for me to use?

A: Most of my clients who have dry skin also suffer from sensitive skin. When your skin loses moisture due to external radicals, your skin's natural lipid layers may become damaged, resulting in dehydrated and itchy skin. If your skin's sensitivity has worsened like you've said, stop using whatever sk...

Q&A: Are Eye Creams Necessary?

Posted by Dior Co on Saturday, March 2, 2013, In : Reviews 
Q: I'm 26 and I'm starting to see fine lines on my eyes. Do I need an eye cream this early? Skincare products are so expensive and I noticed that eye cream costs so much too! Can you recommend a good affordable one that works?

A: This has been an issue with a lot of my clients in their 20's (and mine as well). Some people assume that a facial moisturizer is already enough and may be used on the skin around their eyes. This was even suggested by Linda Wells in Allure Beauty's Confessions of a B...

Q&A: Hair Heat Protectants

Posted by Dior Co on Monday, November 5, 2012,
Q: My hair has been damaged due to continuous hairstyling with heated tools. How can I prevent more damage? I can't live without my hair irons!

A: I understand that for most women, giving up their heated tools such as curling irons and straighteners is not an option. If this is so, protecting your hair from heat damage is absolutely crucial to maintaining healthy and beautiful hair. How? Heat protectants. 


Heat protector sprays guard your hair from heat while allowing you to keep your hair heal...

Q&A: More on Dark Circles

Posted by Dior Co on Tuesday, September 18, 2012, In : Reviews 
Q: Hi Dior! I really have bad "panda" dark circles around my eyes. Even if I pile on concealer, it still shows! I can't cover them completely. None of the concealers I tried work. Help!

A: I've already wrote past entries here and here on this but wow, this seems to be the biggest problem of most of my readers! First, don't despair. I've worked with clients who also have "panda" circles around their eyes and it is possible to conceal them. It may be that you're using the wrong type of concealer...

Q&A: Everyday Makeup

Posted by Dior Co on Wednesday, August 15, 2012, In : Tips 
Q: What is considered everyday makeup and how do you bump it up into an evening look? 

A
: It depends on person to person what they consider as everyday makeup. There is really no rule. Personally, I believe that everyday makeup shouldn't look overdone; it's applied in such a way that a woman looks radiant and lit from within. That when people look at you, they don't notice what lipstick or blush you're using and instead they see you -- only better. It involves only a few choices of cosmetic it...

Q&A: Growing Hair Faster

Posted by Dior Co on Wednesday, August 15, 2012, In : Tips 

Q
: Hi Dior, I noticed your hair grew so fast! I'm trying to grow my hair as well. How can I give it a growth spurt?

A: Thanks for noticing, but it actually took me a year and a half to reach this length from a bob! Sad to say, but that there's no definite way of making hair grow faster. Hair length is determined by genetics, age and hormonal fluctuations. You can help hair reach its maximum length by protecting it from splitting, which leads to breakage. I like to go to the salon once in three...

Q&A: Make-up Artist Attire

Posted by Dior Co on Wednesday, May 9, 2012, In : Tips 
Q: Hi Dior! I'm starting my journey into making makeup artistry as a career. Just a question, what do you wear when on the job?

A: When I went to my makeup training schools, they always advise us to wear black. They say it's the signature "makeup artist attire." The same thing was followed when I was in L'Oreal. I did retail training for the beauty advisers of Shu Uemura and the rule was to have all our makeup artists wear black. Well it only makes sense -- black looks professional, it almost ...

Make-up Shelf Life

Posted by Dior Co on Wednesday, May 9, 2012, In : Tips 
Q: What's the shelf life for make-up products? How do I know if they're already expired and needs to be thrown out?

A: Nothing saddens me more than having to throw away makeup from my stash. I always allow myself to hoard makeup, telling myself "I'll be able to use it in my profession anyways," but always end up throwing up a bunch from my kit. Before I enumerate the guidelines on makeup shelf life, let me just say that anyone should never ever use makeup that's way past their expiration dates...

Q&A: Caring For Asian Skin

Posted by Dior Co on Saturday, March 31, 2012, In : Tips 
Q: Dear Dior, I'm Asian like you. How should one take care of Asian skin?

A: Asian women tend of have more melanin in the skin, which protects it from the sun. I'd still recommend using sunscreen of SPF 30 or higher daily. However,
 the increased melanin also means we're more susceptible to darkened blemish scars. Generally, it takes Asian skin longer to heal from these scars. It is also essential to take note that even if Asian skin is generally thick compared to other races, it is also very s...

Q&A: Washing Hair Everyday

Posted by Dior Co on Monday, March 26, 2012, In : Tips 
Q: Hi Dior, I like to wash my hair everyday, but I keep on hearing that it's bad for your hair. Is this true?

A: I also like washing my hair everyday. Who can blame us with the humid and hot weather we need to deal with everyday? To answer your question, no, washing your hair daily isn't a bad thing, but there are a few things that you should be aware of. Over-washing your hair can strip your scalp from natural oils, making your hair look less shiny. Also, if you're using shampoo that has a ve...

Q&A: Bulking Up Before Slimming Down

Posted by Dior Co on Monday, February 20, 2012, In : Tips 
Q: Hi Dior, Like you, I did Barre3 and Plana Forma. I stopped immediately though because after a month of doing it, my jeans got tighter. I really felt that I bulked up. Shouldn't the workout suppose to slim me down??

A: I sometimes hear complaints such as these from fellow followers of exercises that involve the ballet barre. I had the same complaint last year when I tried strength work for the first time. Changes in the body usually come in fast when doing Barre3 or Plana Forma so first-time...

Q&A: Hormonal Breakouts

Posted by Dior Co on Monday, February 13, 2012, In : Tips 
Q: Lately my face is becoming really oily. Could it be that my breakouts are caused by my hormones?

A: Yes. I myself experience more breakouts during my pre-menstrual week, which sadly is also the time that I feel most emotional. However, this only affects 15% of women. If pimples suddenly plague you randomly, it might be due to other hormones. An overweight body can have more testosterone, which can create acne; stress ups cortisol, increasing oil. Or it might not be hormonal at all. Acne agi...
