Gal Gadot Becomes Newest Wonder Woman

Gal Gadot

The actress is “excited” to be taking on the role of Diana Prince, commonly known as Wonder Woman, the Amazonian princess who has been fighting crime in comic books alongside Superman and Batman for almost 70 years. In the sequel, she’ll be starring opposite Henry Cavil and Ben Affleck in these roles, respectively.

“Not only is Gal an amazing actress, but she also has that magical quality that makes her perfect for the role,” said director Zack Snyder in a statement. “We look forward to audiences discovering Gal in the first feature film incarnation of this beloved character.”

Gadot has previously been featured in three films in the Fast and Furious franchise. She will be the first woman bringing the character to the big screen. The superheroine had been most famously played by Lynda Carter in the short-lived Wonder Woman television series in the 1970s. Attempts had been made since then to bring Wonder Woman back to both television and film, including a failed television pilot in 2011. This is the first definitive casting of the role. Principal photography on the film is slated to begin in early 2014.

The Israeli model and actress has been the spokeswoman for Vine Vera since June 2013, a cosmetic line focused on the anti-aging properties of resveratrol, a chemical commonly found in grape seed. An up-and-coming brand, Vine Vera offers cleansers, exfoliants, moisturizing creams and other products for men and women’s anti-aging needs.

Caring for Your Hands with Vine Vera

Dipping fingers into a jar of moisturizer

Your hands take a beating every day. The skin on the hands is very sensitive, and we use it regularly for our sense of touch. Because of this, our hands are usually bare, and this can cause the skin on the hands to suffer more damage than other skin on the body. For this reason, it is very important to take extremely good care of the skin on your hands. Vine Vera has suggestions on how to keep the skin of your hands soft.

An easy way to protect the skin of your hands and keep it soft is to protect your hands by wearing gloves. This can be especially important in the winter when the air becomes very dry and sucks the moisture from your hands. Many people notice that their hands become red and chapped in the winter. Wearing gloves or other forms of protection for your hands will prevent this and help to keep your skin moisturized and healthy.

Make sure that your hands are moisturized regularly. There are countless lotions and balms available to keep your hands moisturized. Picking out a product that works for you is one of the easiest and most fun ways to keep your hands soft and looking great. Look for skin care products with natural ingredients that maintain the natural moisture of your skin while also protecting the skin from harsh environmental factors.

Do not over-wash your hands. Many soaps and disinfectants are very harsh for the skin, and constant exposure to these chemicals can cause the skin to dry out and become damaged. You can reduce this damage by looking for a soap that features lotion or certain vitamins to help keep your hands moisturized as well as clean. This is an especially great option for soap used when hand washing dishes.

Protecting your hands is not easy, and the skin on the hands suffers some of the most damage. Vine Vera recommends keeping the skin of the hands moisturized and protected from the elements. Doing so will keep your hands soft.

Vine Vera Tips for a Great Complexion

The skin on your face is some of the most delicate. Not only is this skin thinner than it is on other areas of the body, it also undergoes thousands of minute movements every day as your expression changes. This means that the skin on the face undergoes more stress than the rest of the skin on the body. Therefore, keeping a flawless complexion is harder than it sounds. Vine Vera, however, presents easy tips for a great complexion that will help keep the skin on the face smooth, supple, and looking young.

One of the easiest ways to prevent blemishes and to keep your complexion looking great is to keep your hair clean. Cleansing the skin is useless if your hair is constantly brushing against it. Using a lightweight shampoo and conditioner to keep hair beautiful will help to keep the skin clean and clear. If you have bangs and are constantly struggling with acne, then consider growing them out. Vine Vera warns that bangs can cause skin to be more oily and prone to breakouts.

Another easy way to keep the face clean and beautiful is to regularly wash or change pillowcases. When you sleep, dead skin cells as well as dirt and grit from the day accumulate on your pillow. Sleeping on this grime over and over will cause your pores to clog and can cause breakouts and dull skin. In addition, it is better for your complexion if you sleep on your back so that the skin of your face does not have any contact with the pillow at all.

Finally, a beautiful complexion relies on proper and regular cleansing. Washing your face every day clears the pores and causes skin to look bright and new. In addition, cleansing at night will help your skin cells to rejuvenate themselves. Cells in the body have amazing healing properties, and skin cells work hardest to renew themselves when the body is resting. Cleansing before bedtimegives the skin an extra boost.

They can be very minor and barely noticeable or major. Many people consider stretch marks unsightly and look for any way to eliminate them. Knowing how to minimize the appearance of stretch marks can give you more self-confidence when it comes to your skin.

Over the years of a person’s life, though, stretch marks will lighten and become much less noticeable. Most people, however, still look for ways to further reduce or eliminate stretch marks.

Stretch marks will fade faster with the proper skin care routine. Professionals, such as those at Vine Vera, recommend applying intense moisturizers to the skin every day. These moisturizers usually come in the form of coco butter, shea butter, Vitamin E, or bio oil. These products can help the collagen and elastin production in the skin so that stretch marks fade faster.

If you plan to be at the beach and want to hide stretch marks, then try sunless tanning products. Not only will these products protect your skin from the sun, but they have also been shown to help reduce the appearance of stretch marks. You will have an amazing looking tan and confidence in the appearance of your skin.

Make sure that the area of your skin with stretch marks gets good circulation. Circulation promotes cell turnover and helps your skin to begin the healing process on its own. Stretch or work out every day to get the blood flowing throughout your body.  If you follow these tips from Vine Vera you are sure to minimize the appearances of stretch marks and in turn will keep your body free of unsightly marks you may not want.

Selecting Which Cosmetics are Right for Your Skin

Collage of 9 different women

We’ve all been there. We buy a new foundation, cream, or blush that friends have raved about. All of the reviews are positive, and the color looks great in the store. But as soon as you get home and try wearing it, something terrible happens. Your skin has a reaction. You break out, or start to flake. These problems can occur for a number of reasons, but most commonly it is because you did not purchase a cosmetic that was right for your skin. Selecting which cosmetics are right for your skin is a skill that everyone needs to learn.

There are different skin types, and this means that your reaction to cosmetics will vary depending on your skin type. Before you choose cosmetics, you need to know which type of skin you have. There are five basic types of skin, so determine which type you have before looking for cosmetics.

1. Normal skin is the easiest to care for. It will not show oil, and it has great circulation, elasticity, and smoothness. It looks clean, feels vibrant, and will continue to look great as it ages.

2. Dry skin feels flaky, dry, and tight. It can easily develop a sallow tone as well as wrinkles. It is prone to aging and irritants. Moisturizing dry skin is essential for keeping it healthy.

3. Oily skin looks greasy and is prone to breakouts. It is not prone to wrinkling or aging, however. Careful cleansing can help to improve oily skin.

4. Combination skin is the type that most people have. Different areas of the face are either oily or dry and therefore require different care. Typically the nose and forehead areas are oily while the cheeks and around the eyes are considered dry.

5. Sensitive skin tends to be very dry. It feels tight and becomes irritated or inflamed easily. It is the most fragile type of skin and requires great care in order to remain healthy.

Once you have determined your skin type you can begin researching the best kinds of cosmetics. Many brands of cosmetics feature different types of products that cater to a particular skin type. You can often find them labeled as dry, oily, normal, or sensitive. Choose the cosmetic that is best for your skin, and you will see a major difference.

And remember, when it comes to cosmetics, often times you get what you pay for. For serious results, choose an established cosmetic line that has great products, such as Vine Vera.

The Best Ways to Exfoliate

Exfoliating is an essential step in the care of your skin. When you exfoliate properly, you remove a buildup of dirt, grime, and dead skin cells that causes the skin to look dull and old, and no one wants that. When you exfoliate as part of your daily skin care routine, you help to keep your skin looking young and fresh. Vine Vera reveals the best ways to exfoliate so that you will have glowing, beautiful skin.

There are several different ways to exfoliate, and the way that is right for you is up to personal preference. Try exfoliating different ways and see which feels best for your skin as well as which you enjoy the most.

1. Before you shower, squeeze a small amount of body scrub into your hand. Massage the body scrub into your skin using a gentle circular motion. Start massaging at your ankles and work your way up. Using a loofah or exfoliating gloves will give you even smoother results according to Vine Vera. Rinse the body scrub off in the shower, and then apply a moisturizing body lotion immediately after you get out of the shower. This locks moisture into your skin.

2. Squeeze shower gel or body wash onto a loofah. Using the loofah, gently massage the shower gel into your skin. The roughness of the loofah will help to remove buildup from the skin. In addition, you can purchase shower gel that has exfoliating beads in it. Be sure to be gentle as you are massaging, though, so that you do not accidentally cause damage to your skin. When you have finished massaging the shower gel into your skin, rinse and apply a body lotion to help keep the moisture in your skin.

3. Use skincare products that contain natural exfoliants. Or, create a natural exfoliate yourself. Collect a cupful of wet sand. Gently use your fingers to massage the sand all over your skin. The roughness of the sand removes dead skin cells, dirt, and grime from the surface of your skin. Rinse the sand off and shower as you normally do. Lather on a tiny bit of soap in order to remove any residue left by the sand, but do not overdo it. Finally, apply a body lotion to lock in moisture.
