5 Ways To Take Care Of Your Skin [Recommended By Toke Makinwa]
Proper skin care is critical to a healthy lifestyle that achieves greater goals and fulfills destiny.
But most people care less about their skin, using poor makeup products and exposing themselves to toxic substances that leave their skin rough, wrinkled, and aging.
You might have even already incorporated some skincare practice into your daily routine…but are you doing it correctly?
In case you're stuck and don't know if you're going in the right direction, here's what beauty expert and actress, Toke Makinwa, recommends:
1. Wash Your Face Twice Daily
The advice to wash your face twice daily or regularly sounds simple and basic, but you shouldn’t despise it for its seeming simplicity.
In fact, doing this less (or not doing it at all) can make your skin pores become clogged which may result in serious acne.
Regular skin cleansing is critical to maintaining clean, healthy, and glowing skin.
Every day, the skin is exposed to ultraviolet rays of the sun, viruses, bacteria, dirt, pollutants, and dead skin cells.
Regular facial washing helps you remove these impurities and other unwanted debris that form clogs on your face.
Keeping a daily face cleansing habit (alongside using moisturizer) also helps to keep the face hydrated, eliminating wrinkles and roughness associated with aging skin.
2. Drink Lots Of Water
Water is an important element in the body and drinking some glasses of water regularly helps our skin in some way.
If you’re looking for a natural way to take care of your skin, then you should probably try taking an ample amount of water regularly to get that beaming, glowing and healthy skin you desire.
Additionally, drinking ample amount of water daily helps to:
Slowly tighten your skin, maintaining a healthy glow.
Keep a balanced PH value
Flush out harmful toxic substances
Keep the body hydrated, reducing wrinkles and scars.
Prevent pimples and acne.
3. Moisturize
Moisturizing the skin is a critical step and good practice to help the skin stay healthier.
Without proper moisture on the skin, its healthy cells are likely to wear out or become irritated.
Those who properly moisturize their skin during their teenage years are more likely to enjoy a radiant and beautiful skin tone and complexion when they’re much older.
With proper moisturizing, you can fight against further skin breakouts and acne which is a consequence of dry and irritated skin.
Regularly doing this also helps protect the skin from future skin problems. 
4. Eat Enough Fruits and Veggies
Great skin is not only as great as the amount of nutrients and components it contains.
Good fruits and vegetables are excellent recipes to add to your daily routine if you’re in the race for healthy skin.
Fruits and vegetables contain strong antioxidants that help protect the skin from damages caused by free radicals.
These free radicals caused by smoking, pollution, and sunlight can cause wrinkles or make our skin look old.
Thus, regular intake of fruits and vegetables is important to help maintain healthy skin tone and cell development.
Spinach, carrots, sweet potatoes, and pumpkin are good recipes for skincare.
5. Quality Makeup Products Only
Makeup products are introduced into our world to transform the normally dull, aging appearance into glittering, rejuvenating, and elated.
Some people also wear makeup to create a match with their clothing or fashion style.
However, wearing poor makeup will only do more harm than good.
For instance, many makeup products contain heavy oils, waxes, preservatives, and chemical products which can cause skin irritation.
Most cheap makeup products use cheap ingredients which may hurt the skin the most.
Thus, it’s probably advisable to go for only quality makeup products if you’re willing to maintain your skin tone and radiance.

However, owning housing property in Nigeria can seem like a great struggle if you lack the proper technical know-how and guidance.
For instance, you’ll have to go through a series of processes before getting to obtain a house in big cities like Lagos and Abuja.
These choice locations demand a little carefulness and proper guidance so you don’t end up throwing your hard-earned money into the scrap heap all in the name of buying a house.
But, does it have to be that technical?
Certainly not.
Today, we’ll walk you through the step-by-step process to become the next house owner, even in your favorite city.
Let’s begin at once.

Credit: Privatelocation
#1. Find Out The Value Of The Property
Successful investors always find out about the worth of the property they are investing in before diving into the investment.
They want to know if the house will be profitable and add value to their life or business. And that’s exactly the approach you want to take before investing.
I’m sure you don’t want your hard-earned to vanish so soon. You want to ensure that the house is worth its weight of gold.
Gauge the potential growth of this investment, will it bring you a 5%-30% increase within the next few years?
If not, why spend so much money only to get peanuts?
#2. Make Adequate Research About The Seller Of The Property
Yes, you’re all excited to start living in the house and start living in the future as soon as possible, but hear this… 
Before settling to buy a house, make sure you know the actual seller.
 The reason for this isn’t far-fetched if you consider the endless amount of scam issues experienced in this present day. Among other things be sure to know:
Who is the owner of the property?
Who is marketing the property?
Is it the owner, the owner’s partner, son, daughter, or somebody else?
Whose name is on the document? Is it the owner or the previous owner?
What liabilities presently exist on the property?
And other relevant questions
#3. Verify The True Owner Of The Property
Before purchasing the plot of land or building, you want to make sure you check the “necessities,” one of which includes knowing the actual owner of the house.
You want to search for the property. This can include verifying from appropriate authorities if the property in question is inside the government non-inheritable properties or not.
You could also find out if there are any unfinished proceedings or problems on the property.
Also, note that you can refer all land-connected matters to The Bureau of Lands of Urban Center States.
They are the ones in charge of all land-connected matters in the urban center states. They have joint work in the Government secretariat, Alausa, Ikeja, Urban Center African country.
#4. Make Payment And Collect The Proper Documents
After checking through the above, you want to pay the property stipulated amount to the landowner and collect the:
Purchase receipt
Building arrangement
Contract of sales
Original copies of the relevant documents in possession of the owner
#5. File The Documentation For The New Purchase With The Authorities
Ensure you take the necessary steps to make sure the property checks the rules of all government-appropriate authorities to avoid punishments from the law shortly.
For instance, if the property already includes a C of O (certificate of occupancy), you are safe with the government. If not, then you gotta begin processing your C of O as shortly as doable.
#6. Appoint Associate Degree Factor to Assist Manage the Property.
Doing this will safeguard your investment, especially if you reside outside Urban Center African Countries or Overseas. People from the United Nations agency have been endowed with great success in the Urban Center African Country
Yeah! That’s it.. you now have the necessary steps you need to take to buy a house in Nigeria in 2021, so go yonder and multiply!!

It’s essential that you check out some flat tummy reviews before you go ahead and buy any flat tummy product so you don’t end up risking your health.
However, in this article, we’ll go through some flat tummy side effects and figure out how to avoid them and stay safe.
What Is Flat Tummy Tea?
Flat tummy tea is a detox drink made from 100% natural ingredients achieving for the user a leaner-looking and moderate tummy shape. It’s popularly marketed to young and old woman who wants to clear their bowels and decrease bloating,
The tea, endorsed by some notable celebrity influencers in the country has been reportedly seen by young women as a healthy drink and can seemingly turn around a fat, shapeless-looking southern woman into what is called “babe.” A name commonly used for skinny, healthy women who even when in their 40s look much like a teenager.
Flat tummy tea contains a combination of tea made from many herbal ingredients and intended to be consumed once or twice every day to decrease bloating and get back that flat tummy you once had in your teenage years.
The tea contains 28 separately-wrapped tea bags in a tight sealed pack which aimed to secure the product.
Following the directions of the manufacturer, the tea is supposed to be 28-day detox tea that both detoxifies and eliminates excess stomach fat giving you an admirable, beautiful look. Using the tea according to the manufactures prescription can:
Help reduce body fat
Help you get rid of belly fat
Increase your metabolism
Aids weight loss
Promote detoxification and healthy digestion
Reduce food cravings and suppress appetite
Flush fats naturally and so forth
While there are so many rumors all around the internet claiming this tea doesn’t work, effectively and carefully taking this herbal drink according to the manufacturer's directive can play a major role in achieving the magic you desired.
Many of these unpleasant rumors come from people who stopped halfway using the tea or those who don’t even use the tea at the proper time they are supposed to. Needless to say, the tea can be a game-changer when used correctly.
Common Ingredients Of A Flat Tummy Tea and Their Associated Side-effects
Don't be fooled, there isn’t anything, not one medical drug or even herbal treatment in today’s world that doesn’t come with its own side effects.
Though many manufacturers try to claim their product is without flaws, but, we both know that is a blatant lie. And so it is with the flat tummy tea. Though the flat tummy product can deliver exceptional results, win you more friends and make you live the life of your dream, it isn’t without some negative effects when the given instructions are not correctly followed.
Let’s go over together some common ingredients of the flat tummy tea and their never-known side effects.

Present in the flat tummy tea is the herbal moringa leaf, a plant native to the Indians, but grown worldwide in various tropical and subtropical regions.
Moringa is being used for various treatments including asthma, cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, cancer, and many other diseases.
It could also be used to treat stomach disorders, such as constipation, ulcerative colitis, and gastritis. However, the presence of moringa in the tea can result in some side effects which includes:
Fertility issues which may result in difficulty in giving birth
Slow heartbeat and lower blood pressure which can be triggered by the alkaloids present in the plant
Miscarriage for pregnant women – the root bark of moringa is used to terminate pregnancy
Cell mutations

Oolong Tea

In many common Nigerian flat tummy tea, you’ll find the Oolong tea which is a product made from stems, buds, and leaves of the Camellia sinensis plant. Oolong tea is also a major ingredient in the production of prominent green tea and black tea.
Commonly used to boost mental alertness, Oolong tea is also great for treatments of obesity, osteoporosis, and heart diseases.
Many other researches also show that Oolong tea might lower blood sugar in type 2 diabetes patients and can also reduce high blood pressure and many other great benefits.
But this amazing herbal drink is not without its own side effects because of the presence of caffeine. Some of the side effects include:
Serious headache
Irregular heartbeat
And heartburn
Green Tea

Green tea is also a product of the Camellia Sinensis plant and is composed of the steam and dried leaves of the plant. The tea is composed of a greater amount of some healthy chemical compounds which are known as polyphenols. 
For decades, green tea has been used to treat numerous health challenges including diarrhea, nausea, and stomach-related issues. Many research shows that the chemical present in green tea can be used to prevent inflammation, swelling, and obesity.
The tea contains a little amount of caffeine (around 2-4%) which makes it a great treatment for improving mental alertness, stimulating the nervous system, and boosting thinking.
Just like the other ingredients of a flat tummy tea mentioned above, green tea has its own downside, and drinking too much of it may result in many of these negative effects:
Stomach upset, jitteriness, and headaches
Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)
Increased bleeding disorders
High blood pressure

Senna Tea

Commonly known to be an over-the-counter laxative, Senna leaf which is found in many Nigerian flat tummy tea, is used to clear the bowel and treat constipation and can be combined with other ingredients to achieve a flat tummy.
Senna leaf is an FDA-approved drug for maintaining long-term alkaline urine and tubular disorders. However, Senna is a laxative, and going overboard with it can have a laxative effect on the user.
In fact, the National Eating Disorder Association (NEDA) mentioned that “laxative abuse occurs when a person attempts to eliminate unwanted calories, lose weight, feel empty, or feel thin through the repeated use of laxative.”
This means that a non-regulated use of Senna leaf which is among the ingredients of the flat tummy tea can do more harm than good. Here are some side effects of using Senna leaf:
Menstrual cramps
Excessive bowel activity
Nausea (vomiting)
Abdominal pain
Heart function disorders
Liver damage
Muscle weakness
Bowels can stop functioning, causing complete dependence on laxatives and so on

How To Avoid These Flat Tummy Side Effects
From the points listed above, you can notice the major causes of these side effects are either not following the manufacturer's prescriptions or going overboard trying to use this flat tummy treatment every time.
Therefore, the solution to avoiding this flat tummy side effect is simply obeying and following the instructions and usage recommended by the producing company.
Pregnant women shouldn’t try drinking more than 3 cups of flat tummy tea as this can lead to miscarriage.
Nursing mothers shouldn’t take too much of this tea as the presence of caffeine in the Oolong tea which is a major ingredient in the flat tummy tea can cause irritability, sleep issues, and increased bowel activity in the Bosom -fed baby.
Additionally, green tea can interact with some prescribed drugs and treatment, so it’s advisable to reach out to your doctor before drinking the tea regularly.
Wrapping Up
The flat tummy isn’t as bad as many think it is and can help you achieve your desired goal – getting a flat tummy – when used correctly.
More so, the flat tummy tea alone may not do too much magic to your health. Stick to best practices, exercise, diet correctly, and use this tea and the result will marvel you.
Are you ready to buy your flat tummy tea?

9  Forum / Health / Anti-Aging Herbs That Repair Damaged Skin And Wrinkles on: 17-02-2021 06:36 PM
Aging is a usual process for every human being. Aging, in a complex language, can be called as the time associated deterioration of the physical, mental as well as physiological functions that are necessary for survival and development and growth. With increase in age, a human being goes through innumerous inevitable changes. The major ones that everyone, especially women is more scared of; are the damages caused to skin due to aging. This is a process that most people would like to slow, in fact stop! After a certain age, symptoms of aging can be seen on skin as the collagen content starts decreasing per unit area. According to a study, every year collagen decreases by 1 percent with increase in age.
Aging is of two types namely intrinsic age and extrinsic age. The intrinsic aging is caused due to genetic factors whereas, on the other hand, extrinsic aging is caused by outer and external factors namely, sun exposure, smoking, diet, lifestyle and many more. Coming to the symptoms of aging we have, damaged, dull skin and with increasing wrinkles on your skin. Another term for wrinkles is waviness. These damages are concerned with fibers misalignment”, which in simple terms means to displace from the original position. With increase in age, collage goes on gradual decrease and the skin layer goes on in a losing state which leads to wrinkles. Other factors that lead to wrinkles are smoking, ultraviolet irradiation, alcohol, diet, genetic factors. And also the accumulated cellular damage is a major cause of reactive molecules also called free radicals and the shortening of telomere, which are the structures located at the ends of chromosomes that play an important role in cellular division.
Aging is an inevitable process but human beings have constantly been putting innumerous efforts since decades to increase the human lifespan and slow down the aging process through scientific research. Not the ultimate goal has been fulfilled, but at least through these researches, scientists have been successful in finding a large number of organic herbs and drugs that have anti-aging properties. These herbs have proved their way along the time through which many humans take them as supplements and have been reaching the goal to decelerate the aging process and prevent age-related disease.
So, to help you out with all the chaos about where, when and how to start, we are here! This article aims at 5 best anti-aging herbs or drugs that can be taken as supplements to repair damaged and wrinkled skin. Remember it is never too late or too early to start something and change things in your life. Here are 5 supplements with anti-aging properties.

The 5 Best Anti-Aging herbs or drugs that can be taken as supplements to repair damaged and wrinkled skin:
Curcumin is the major compound of turmeric and is a proven source as an herb that possesses powerful and incomparable anti-aging properties that are associated with its potent antioxidant potential. As you grow old, there are senescent cells that stop dividing and start accumulating. This process is called Cellular senescence which is believed to lead to accelerated aging and disease progression and physical disabilities.
So, Researchers have proven and demonstrated that curcumin helps in activation of certain proteins that includes sirtuins and AMP-activated protein kinase (AMPK), these proteins delay cellular senescence and promote longevity.
Thus, to increase your curcumin intake, you can add turmeric to your diet. By not using turmeric directly, use it in your recipes or the other way, you can take direct curcumin supplements to get faster results.
Thus summarizing it, Curcumin is the main active compound that helps proteins to activate which delay cellular senescence and promotes longevity. This is a major compound of turmeric.

Epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG)
Epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) is a popular polyphenol compound that is concentrated and is a major compound in green tea. It offers impressive health benefits, among all these, the most effective benefit that it offers is its ability to promote longevity and protect against age-related disease development.
It also has been a proven source that induces autophagy. Autophagy is a process by which damaged cellular material gets removed from your body and also it helps in building a protecting layer. Thus, summarizing it, Epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) can indirectly be consumed by having green tea that is a major source of this herb. Or you can directly take concentrated supplements for faster and more effective results.

Collagen is the major component of youth. It has been promoted as a fountain of youth since ages for its incomparable potential to reduce the appearance of aged, damaged and wrinkled skin. It is the most important and integral component of your skin that helps in maintaining skin structure. But, due to gradual aging, collagen production enzymes slow down and this leads to lack of collagen in your skin that leads to gradual acceleration of aging causing damages to skin. Summarizing, you can consume direct collagen dietary supplements that will help in prevention of skin aging that leads to boosting of collagen levels in your skin.

Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10):
Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) is an antioxidant agent that is produced in my body by various enzymes. This antioxidant plays an essential role in energy production and acts as a protection against cellular as well as skin damage. With increase in your age, levels of CoQ10 decline gradually. Thus supplementing your diet with Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) to increase in its level will inevitably show improvement in many aspects of health in older individuals, majorly including anti-aging benefits and repairs to the wrinkled and damaged skin. But, do not forget to consult a trusted healthcare professional before giving it a try, to ensure that your body will not react inversely or against you in context of Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10). Summarizing it, you can consume direct Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) dietary supplements that will help in prevention of skin aging faster and more efficiently.
Nicotinamide riboside and nicotinamide mononucleotide:
Nicotinamide riboside (NR) and nicotinamide mononucleotide (NMN) are precursors to nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD+). NAD+ is a popular compound that is found in every cell in our body and it is involved in many crucial, complex and critical processes majorly including energy metabolism, DNA repair, and gene expression. With increasing age, NAD+ levels keep going on a decline in original produced levels and this decline is thought to be associated with accelerated physical decline and the onset of age-related diseases like Alzheimer’s. Summarizing it, you can consume direct Nicotinamide riboside (NR) and nicotinamide mononucleotide (NMN) and nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD+) dietary supplements that will help in prevention of skin aging that leads to boosting of antioxidant levels in your skin. Supplementing with NMR and NR may help boost NAD+ levels in your body and prevent age-associated genetic changes.
Thus, the top five antioxidants for anti-aging are Nicotinamide riboside (NR) and nicotinamide mononucleotide (NMN), Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10), Collagen, Epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) and Curcumin and are the most beneficial in anti-aging processes and repairing damaged and wrinkled skin.

So to get started a business you need a budding idea first. Often the ideas we are looking for are right in front of us. So how about we start with the basics that every person during the Holiday season will be needing! Add a cool business name for the season and absolutely get going on making that extra cash.
Not everybody wishes to set up a big business right away. Some like to start small. And for those some, here’s a list for that!

The first picture that comes to our minds when spoken of Christmas is DECORATIONS. A neighborhood decoration sale is just what your folks need! How comforting would it be for everyone around you to not have to travel miles to get Christmas essentials. Because you are selling it to them!
Christmas trees, lights, ornaments put them out for sale.
A lot of people prefer hiring services to decorate their Christmas parties. Now that’s another way to earn some bucks. You can sell and decorate for the same clients. Put your designing hobby to the best.

If you have brought in those delicious cupcakes to every party then this is a great opportunity for you. Spread that creativity out on the table and let every dog bite into it.
Another simply doable and a good business idea. It is promising and in demand every holiday season. Your business could be small, having a few clients but could still be extremely grossing. Quality catering and bakery items are in high demand during this time of the year. So your food business could be doing very well for the winter holiday season.

How about you set up a Christmas store business that sells gift items.  Side by side to sell gift items. You could provide wrapping services too.
Creative packaging has been a hype in recent years. People love beautiful packaging. It is sophisticated, festive and personal. Plan out combos for various packages and price them well.

What people love even more during the holiday season is not having to worry about pouring their own drinks. Now a host would not want to run out of drinks all of a sudden. They therefore opt for services for so.
If you have some working knowledge in tending the bar. Might as well it give it a shot? You could be working as a private bartender this Christmas season. Shake up some classic drinks for your audience.

Squeezing in time for Christmas shopping can be difficult for many. Their work and family does take a lot of hours. These people are always looking for someone to get their shopping done. You could be their private holiday shopper.

You might want to look at these super cool from home business ideas that are absolutely groundbreaking and creative.

In the comforts of your home, making the most of your creativity. Here’s a business idea best suits you, if you love working within your home. Handmade crafts are very personal and much loved. They are the best suited gifts for any occasion making the most in Christmas.

All you need is an online base. What you will do here is connect persons with persons who require automobile services or wish to buy one. People desire to hire car services during holidays to go around places. And you will help these people meet people who are providing these services. Your websites must be built user friendly. Now that’s another cool work from home business idea.

Travelling is another part that comes with the Holiday season. Vacations with family and friends are much loved. And you will be using this fact to your business’s benefits. Here’s how.
For obvious reasons people require rental house services for their getaway period. You can set up a website that will connect your customers with owners of houses providing these services.  Those who own vacation homes in beautiful locations rent them for a certain price. You could put various such homes up on your website.


Depending on your capital available if you wish to have a flamboyant business that’s extremely grossing too, here’s a list just right for you.

Amongst all extravagant things without fireworks to some, Christmas feels incomplete. You could start a service providing people with so. You can set up a website for your clients with delivery services. Or set up a store for so.
A super grossing and lucrative business idea right around Christmas time is poultry farming. The very main dish of the evening cannot be prepared without chicken or turkey. Almost every home is contained with chicken and turkey dishes. One factor concerning this much grossing business is. You need to start this business three to four months prior to the winter holiday season.
What is a Christmas without ugly sweaters! This is a wonderful business idea. Much lavish and grossing. The time for the apparels market extends even beyond Christmas up to New Year’s and so on. Bring the inner designer in you out and put it to trial. Since traditionally people across the globe wear new clothes for Christmas. This is definitely going to be a profitable venture.
Events being held are pretty common during festive hours. Friends together love to attend parties and much more. And to organize them, people require skilled event planners. If you have some prior experience to event planning then this might be a great time for you. You could be making lots of cash with your work surrounding this time.

There are several business ideas you can execute. That will be profit making. These business ideas have the ability to make you super rich. But it all comes down to how you play it. Your skills, dedication and hard work all combined will give you results for your business.
Whether as a side business or a main one. If you love something pursue it. Many times people are afraid to follow what they are good at. Because of other people’s opinions. But ultimately it's your fight and what people think of you or say to you shouldn’t matter.
12  Forum / Business / Top 10 Best Christmas Apparels For 2020 on: 18-12-2020 12:13 AM
Picking your outfit for the holiday season is the most exciting bit.
But choosing the best Christmas apparels according to the kind of Christmas party, like a casual, semi-casual or formal party is a big deal.

An invite that calls out that lengthy gown in your wardrobe. That one that is particularly dressy. Cocktail dresses can be appropriate for the event but a lengthy dress is a more elevated choice. There are fabric choices too, to keep in mind. Velvet, chiffon, silk and lace.
You can opt for something that is flowing or tight. You can comfortably choose to show enough skin. Backless or strapless dresses are fine choices. And it is totally okay to wear them. As long as it is sophisticated and elegant it works right.

Another wonderful pick for a style. If your party invite says smart & casual. You need to be dressed polished but relaxed. Not overdressed. Not too showy. But balanced. It is finding a middle ground between formal and informal.
For an invite like this, how about you choose skirts and culottes over jeans.
To kill this look, you could mix classic clothing items. Like, a pair of black pants with an off-shoulder top. Jackets and blazers, buttoned down t-shirts.

Now as per the invite, you need to dress semi-formal. Semi-formal dressing again requires adequate balance between a formal and informal attire.
You can put something more formal than office wear on one end and something less dressy than a gown or tuxedo. Now find your middle ground.
Something as nice as a pair of dress pants, could be somewhere to start at. A button-front shirt, tie, jacket.

Not too formal office wear. That’s exactly what business casual stands for. Even a simple blouse counts for office wear nowadays.

Subtle and formal. You could wear a glitter dress with low boots to work this Christmas party. Make a bold move. Wear your regular work outfit with red pumps. A ruffle top and jeans, bell sleeves, sequin pencil skirt.

A Christmas invite that says keep it casual interprets to BE YOU! Whatever comforts you, is what you can wear. All is acceptable here. Rock the party in that super cute dress or pull off a hot pair of ripped jeans and crop top.
Dressing casual means there are no dress code barriers. You can explore your creativity in your outfits.  Remember that the season is festive. So try opting for shimmer and glimmer outfits to match the mood.
A simple classic and sophisticated look will absolutely make your outfit feel complete.
High necked sweater, a statement necklace, matching gloves, a cute cardigan or sweater with a pair of jeans, a super cute dress, will make up for a wonderful Christmas evening.

Help your girl dress cute this holiday season. There are several styling tips to follow. For you to look super cute and unique this Christmas season.

Now, the first thing you need to be sure of is if your dress is right for the party. If the invite is for a day party. Wear something light and comfortable. Pair it with the right accessories like a satchel bag, headband, and knee high boots. You could glam up for your evening party invite in a winter skirt, chic shirt, maybe a flattering red dress.
Nobody likes dealing with budget constricts during Christmas shopping. So it is better to pre-decide the best outfit for you. And start saving up early on. If you pre decide and organize beforehand you will be able to buy the dressiest possible items. Dressing up is a personal thing. Its whole purpose is to make you feel good. So dress for yourself.
Here are some suggestions, pair a chiffon black collared shirt with leggings and plaid skirt. This outfit will serve well for an evening party. Remember to uphold the holiday spirit in your clothes. To do so here go for subtle prints on your leggings.
Dressing is chic as every teenage girl goes to style. No matter the occasion. Chic just works well. Especially for the festive season, chic sounds perfect. You can style with other fashion accessories.
Cute sweaters are a must. Pair it up with jeans and accessories.

I am sure no matter what you wear you will look stunning this holiday season. 2020 has been a hard year for all. So whether it is a virtual party or offline? This Christmas party is more about you and your family, or maybe just you. Dress well and eat well because no matter what, the festive happiness should not burn out.
Dressing is a personal choice. Dressing up as you, requires your personal style. Thus no matter how you choose to glam up make sure it has your personal touch in it.

14  Forum / Business / Nigerian Native Clothing For 2020 on: 7-12-2020 01:28 AM
WHY STYLING IS IMPORTANT…..and the psychology behind.

Have you ever heard of young teenagers shopping and shopping as a coping mechanism? Well that’s because psychology has noted the comfort some people find in hiding themselves behind clothes.

Clothing is a medium to express ourselves and how we style it, is our original “expression of ourselves”.
Styling is a way to feel in control of your own identity. Often underestimated, styling is very important. It is also a way to control how our environment perceives us.  It lets us structure our personalities in the form of accessories and clothing. It will act as an independent loose skin on your body and bring out the inner YOU.

You could be using our creativity and novelty to mold your styling looks.

In this article I’d like to shed some light on men’s native apparel you should have in your wardrobe in 2020.

Looking back at how rapidly the Nigerian Fashion Industry changed, today there are some traditional clothes designed beautifully out there ruling the African fashion market.

Some of these styles have been upgraded and molded so as to suit the requirements of a chic and young Africa.


A traditional robe with long sleeves

You probably already know what it is, and are probably already scrunching your nose at it. But Hold on! Don’t be so quick to judge.
This men’s apparel isn’t the same anymore as it was previously. It isn’t something for oldies to wear. Thanks to the African fashion industry for redefining its look, making it more chic and pretty.

A traditional wear including three pieces of clothing, a shirt with long sleeves, and a big gown that runs down to your ankles, with an opening (Buba) and a pair of trousers.

The AGBADA is a redefined piece of clothing. Extremely traditional and worn onto several formal occasions.
AGBADA are worn on occasions of marriages. Previously they were only worn by a strong and dominant ethnic group in Nigeria—The Yoruba.
Now several tribes in Nigeria wear it to special occasions. 


A short or long sleeved dress worn with a pair of black pants and often accompanied by a red fez cap or an Igbo Leopard cap.

The ISIAGU or as also called CHIEFTAINCY is mostly worn by the IGBO people of Eastern Nigeria. Higher officials of the IGBO community too are seen in these.
This outfit is mostly worn to special occasions like weddings by the IGBO community. The phenomenon of ISIAGU holds up the cultural expression of the IGBO community’s values which are strength, courage and nobility.

Long sleeved long dress, with or without collars and buttons

As said, it has most likely originated in Arab it is one of the most popular male clothing in Nigeria. This attire is native to Northern Nigeria – the Fulanis and Hausas. Many tribes in Nigeria have been seen dressing in JALABIYA.


Traditional wear must be accompanied by the perfect cloth material. An occasion’s outfit styling begins with shopping for cloth material basing on how well it will suit you and the style you are opting for.
Ankara, Guinea, Lace and Linen are the most commonly chosen material for structuring traditional wear. These days, even trouser material is being used very much.
Selecting the right material for your attire concerns what you love and enjoy wearing the most. What is comfortable enough and what looks the best on you. Well this is something to also be careful of, since while looking at materials online, you may feel that any one of them might suit your look.

Another thing to be particular about while picking your material is that many styles have a certain material that suits the entire attire. In case of those, it is advisable to stick to it.


The clothing fabric Ankara is a 100% cotton fabric with varied colorful prints on them. It is always bright and creative and has imprinted African Tribal prints. Its versatility is widespread. African fashion brands have also been responsible for its widespread influence. It can be used in structuring hats, earrings, blazers etc. This printed fabric is also being inculcated onto skirts, gowns, dresses etc.


What is better than a local fabric that has lasted through the changing Nigerian Fashion market and successfully removed the threat that was hovering over them! Surviving an industrial change is a big deal.
This traditional local fabric is manufactured by the ethnic group – Yoruba. It is usually made with cotton but sometimes is also mixed with silk and metallic yarn. It is primarily used for making Agbadas, head ties for women, Wrap up, and Filas.


This Fabric is also majorly made up of cotton. The designs range from being plain, striped and patterned and come in various color grades.
What follows is that this fabric is sewn for traditional men’s wear. They are primarily used for senator and agbadas style.


The Fabric is embroidered cotton. They have been wax stamped and beaten with clubs for the shiny look that it is known for. They are more popularly known as Guinea Brocades in Nigeria. They in Hausa are popularly known as Sheeda. They are mostly sewn for free style kaftans.


Manufactured as an adire in Nigeria, Batik comes with patterns and motifs created by dye mechanism. This process of dye mechanism makes the cloth resist dyes by tying (adire eleso) or by applying cassava paste (adire eleko). It is mostly used in making buba gowns, dresses and contemporary fashion gowns, trousers and shorts.


The degrees of transparency alter, the colors are varied, the lightness is praise worthy and its use narrows down to styles of gown and tops. The latest styles have been of combining the fabric with Lace and Ankara.


The list of laces available in the market include tulle, cord, paper, guipure, sequenced, beaded, jute, and George and French laces. Different fabrics of the same and contrasting color is also used.

The European colonists introduced western dressing styles into Africa, altering their style of dressing. But even so, the traditional dressing styles have been the ultimatum for most Nigerians.
The Patterns of sewing were brought into Africa in the 15th century. African Native clothing even today is simply its traditional wear which has been a little more enhanced in their new and ever growing society. With the increase in demand by young people for more chic and attractive designs.

Hands done this is the most suitable option for you. With an iOS 13 operating system 7 MP front camera, 12 MP rear and 64 GB storage this phone is a little more budgeted. A screen size of 4.7 inches. The praises for this handset by Apple has even been spoken by critics. It has been congratulated on its excellence. This phone has been selling for half the price than the usual apple flagships.

Thus for them, right in the market stands Samsung’s Galaxy S20 Ultra. Its insides are filled with the best components along with its stunning designs that are praiseworthy.

Steadily with its praise worthy products it has acquired a huge part in market shares and of people’s hearts.

They have the same parent company Transsion Holding that launched Tecno mobile phones. And thus it is quite expected to be good. The targeted audience for Infinix were the average Nigerians.

Bringing in rather not an odd but a very fun concept is the rule of Separates. It means to pair clothing of separate styles up into a single combination. It is the most exciting fashion trend in 2020. The happiness of styling comes from mixing it all up.
Slinky Fully Covered long dresses
On the ramp there have been lacy little things trend for a long time. Which has been replaced by a long fully covered and without any accessories dress. It is combating and bold. Enigmatic at the same time. The attention is drawn towards the wearer solely.
Keeping it short we move onto the segment as to why personal style is important. What does it do? Isn’t being covered and hygienic just enough? Why take that extra mile?
Styling gives a person depth. An expression of his own thoughts in a creative way. Styling has an aesthetic appeal. It is beyond putting clothes on to our bodies.
Style or the way we dress has a direct connection also to how we perceive our surroundings. Our clothes talk for who we are before we use words to explain.
Here are some reasons why I would always encourage one to style.
1.      Styling is being bold and confident.
Being self-aware and not caring about who thinks what about you is one of the major things that styling highlights. It is never easy to put yourself out there amongst the public where you are easily subjected to judgments.
