Visit the Best Cosmetic Dentist nearby regularly for a beautiful smile

The Best Cosmetic Dentist cures cosmetic and oral health problems, such as stains, broken teeth, misalignment issues and teeth that are too small. In addition, people concerned with their awkward smiles because of flaws should visit a cosmetic dentist.

Cosmetic Dentists Have Intense Training

One of the significant advantages of seeing a cosmetic dentist is that a cosmetic dentist has in-depth training always. Not only do cosmetic dentists have the same general dentistry qualification as a general dentist, but Dental Restoration St Louis also has added training and qualification, particularly in cosmetic dentistry and great smile aesthetics.

They Always Consider Better Smile Aesthetics

One of the main advantages of seeing the Best Cosmetic Dentist is that they will always think about the smile with every therapy option. Whether you want a proper dental filling, dental crown, or dentures, your cosmetic dentist will take care of what your smile seems like. These shows do not worry about obtaining dental treatments that make your smile look aberrant or unattractive. Instead, cosmetic dentists make every restoration to improve your smile while reinstating the strength in your teeth. Therefore, when you go to a cosmetic dentist for any treatment, you can always anticipate the best results to look remarkable while also getting back the health of your teeth.

Cosmetic Dentists Offer More Treatment Options

The more intense a dentist’s training and qualifications, the more treatment alternatives they are expected to offer. For example, Stallings Dental provides various cosmetic dentistry solutions, preventive dentistry therapies, and Dental Restoration St Louis. Unfortunately, you can’t find all these dental treatments when you visit a dentist.

The advantage of visiting a cosmetic dentist who provides various treatments that save you time. At present, you need routine cleanings and checkups. However, obtaining any other treatments you want won’t be alright under the same roof. No need to research for a new dentist or move to a new place to receive the treatment you want. Best Cosmetic Dentist offers all the treatments you wish for a beautiful smile.

Restorations Look Better

Another advantage of going to a cosmetic dentist is that your Dental Restoration St Louis is always assured to look perfect. Cosmetic dentists take into account the entire aesthetics of a smile. This indicates that your dental crown isn’t there only to defend your tooth but also to improve your smile. Your Best Cosmetic Dentist will create any restoration you require with a concern for your adjoining teeth to ensure it merges flawlessly and looks their complete best.

If you’re looking for a dentist, look no further than Stallings Dental has excellent experience as a cosmetic dentist and will provide the best results always.

Movie Review: DC League of Super-Pets * Sure To Be A Fan Favorite – Full Of Classic Crime Fighting Battles As Well As Heartfelt Messages

In DC League of Super-Pets, Krypto the Super-Dog and Superman are inseparable best friends, sharing the same superpowers and fighting crime in Metropolis side by side. When Superman and the rest of the Justice League are kidnapped, Krypto must convince a rag-tag shelter pack—Ace the hound, PB the potbellied pig, Merton the turtle and Chip the squirrel—to master their own newfound powers and help him rescue the superheroes. Dwayne Johnson stars as the voice of Krypto the Super-Dog in Warner Bros. Pictures’ animated action-adventure feature film “DC League of Super-Pets,” from director Jared Stern. The film also stars the voices of Kevin Hart, Kate McKinnon, and John Krasinski. 

KIDS FIRST! Film Critic Katherine S. comments, “DC League of Super Pets is sure to be a fan favorite for kids who love superheroes and animals! This animated movie is full of classic crime fighting battles as well as heartfelt messages, making it a perfect family movie.” Selene W. adds, “Before the movie starts there is a segment about Best Friends Animal Society (bestfriends.org) and how you can become a superhero to homeless pets.  As a person who has adopted two homeless pets, I can’t tell you how meaningful it is for DC Super League of Pets to recognize the love that these animals can bring into our lives just as Krypto experiences in the film!” Kendall B. warps it up with, “One of my favorite things is the soundtrack. It’s a combination of old and new songs that are all equally fun pump-up songs, with lyrics that are quite familiar to most people. This movie is very sweet and some scenes may even bring the waterworks as they did for me.” See their full reviews below.

DC League of Super-Pets

By Katherine S., KIDS FIRST! Film Critic, age 14

DC League of Super-Pets is sure to be a fan favorite for kids who love superheroes and animals! This animated movie is full of classic crime fighting battles as well as heartfelt messages, making it a perfect family movie.

Superman (John Krasinski) and Krypto (Dwayne Johnson), the Super-Dog, have been best friends since birth. When the entire Justice League is kidnapped, Krypto must create a crime fighting league of his own, so he enlists the help of shelter pets Ace (Kevin Hart), Merton (Natasha Lyonne), PB (Vanessa Bayer) and Chip (Diego Luna) to save the Justice League and all of Metropolis.

The animation is beautiful! The characters’ designs, especially the pets, are so adorable and keep a cartoonish and comic book-like feeling. The humor is great; it pokes fun at other studios (like Marvel Studios) and also at itself (DC Comics), making it relatable to teens and adults who have seen the more serious Marvel and DC movies. The voice acting is outstanding. Everyone fits their roles so well and they really bring their characters to life, displaying each one’s unique personality. The actors that stand out the most are Dwayne Johnson, Kevin Hart, Natasha Lyonne and Kate McKinnon. Dwayne Johnson as Krypto and Kevin Hart as Ace are a dynamic duo as their chemistry is so apparent – no doubt due to the many times they have worked together in other films. Natasha Lyonne perfects the voice of Old Lady Merton. Her comedic timing is spot on. Kate McKinnon, as Lulu happens to be my favorite character, but I can’t say why as I don’t want to give away any spoilers. What I can say is that her role appears to be written specifically for her.

The primary message of DC League of Super-Pets is that friendship, teamwork and love is stronger than any superpower. There are also themes of moving on and making room for new loved ones. Plus, this movie may inspire people to adopt animals from a shelter. I know I’m ready to!

I give DC League of Super-Pets 4 out of 5 stars and recommend it for ages 5 to 12, plus pet and superhero lovers! It releases in theaters July 29, 2022.

DC League of Super-Pets 
By Selene W., KIDS FIRST! Film Critic, age 14

DC League of Super-Pets is not only “dog-tastic,” it’s “fun-tastic” as well!  I can’t remember watching another movie with so much spontaneous laughter and applause from a screening audience.  This animated story will be one your family will want to watch again and again.

In DC League of Super-Pets, Krypto the Super-Dog (Dwayne Johnson) and Superman (John Krasinski) are inseparable best friends, sharing the same superpowers and fighting crime in Metropolis. When Superman and the rest of the Justice League are kidnapped, Krypto must convince an unlikely group of animal shelter heroes that they need to band together to help him rescue their human superhero counterparts.  The movie trailer for DC League of Super-Pets gives audiences an accurate portrayal of the movie, in this rare instance, as well as interesting glimpses of the delightful characters and humorous situations which develop.

Our new heroes come to life in this animated action adventure film from Director Jared Stern who is also one of the writers.  The cast is notably talented and Krypto’s other canine member Ace (Kevin Hart) teaches him that love is unconditional and that you can’t have justice without truth.  This movie really has a fabulous ensemble cast and there are too many individuals to mention, and they all contribute to the hilarity of this story.  Like the many pets they portray, the characters are fun, loyal and show us that we all need a best friend. My favorite scene is one where Krypto is jealous and gets up to some serious antics when he is home alone.  It’s set to the song “Bad Blood” by Taylor Swift, which plays in the background when he indulges his feelings.  Dwayne Johnson really brings his character to life and writers Jared Stern and John Whittington must have pets at home, as they capture the canine spirit perfectly.  There is also the competitiveness between Batman and Superman, which underlies some of the humorous scenes and interaction.

The message of this film is that love is unconditional, even if it hurts.  Krypto and his alter-ego, Bark Kent, are jealous of Lois Lane (Olivia Wilde).  He learns that change and accepting new friends can expand the possibilities of love.  Before the movie starts there is a segment about Best Friends Animal Society (bestfriends.org) and how you can become a superhero to homeless pets.  As a person who has adopted two homeless pets, I can’t tell you how meaningful it is for DC Super League of Pets to recognize the love that these animals can bring into our lives just as Krypto experiences in the film!

I give DC League of Super-Pets, 5 out of 5 stars and recommend it for ages 5 to 18, but of course adults will enjoy the humor and storyline as well.  It is available in theaters July 29, 2022, so don’t miss this tail-wagging adventure!

DC League of Super-Pets

By Kendall B., KIDS FIRST! Film Critic, Age 11

Trailer:

DC League of Super-Pets is a wonderful new film with great voice-acting, awesome animation, and a fantastic message. The whole family will love it!

The story follows Krypto (Dwayne Johnson), a super dog owned by the one and only Superman. Superman has been hanging out with his girlfriend, Lois (Olivia Wilde) too much, and Krypto feels left out. But after Superman is kidnapped along with the rest of the Justice League by evil guinea pig, Lulu (Kate McKinnon), Krypto meets a group of pound animals and he must learn to work together with them to save the Justice League, and the world.

The animation of the pets in this movie is terrific; all their crazy superpowers are animated so well. Kevin Hart’s portrayal of Ace is one of my favorites. It’s really funny when he’s trying to escape from the pound. I also love PB (Vanessa Byer) and Ch’p (Diego Luna) because they make up a lot of the funniest scenes in the movie. There’s one scene when both of them are they’re trying to create an epic training montage, because you have to have an epic training montage, obviously. But it goes horribly wrong and their powers start going insane and they all start flying everywhere! Their friendship with Merton the turtle (Natasha Lyonne) is really fun to watch. One of my favorite things is the soundtrack. It’s a combination of old and new songs that are all equally fun pump-up songs, with lyrics that are quite familiar to most people. This movie is very sweet and some scenes may even bring the waterworks as they did for me. My favorite scene is when Superman ditches Krypto to go on a date with Lois. Another scene I really like is the scene with Krypto singing Taylor Swift’s song, “Bad Blood,” while eating strawberry ice cream on the bed and watching The Great British Bake Off.

The message of DC League of Super-Pets is that sometimes you have to sacrifice for the people you love. It’s a message that is seen throughout the movie through love between friends or pet and owner.

I give DC League of Super-Pets 5 out of 5 stars and recommend it for ages 5 to 18, plus adults. It releases in theaters July 29, 2022.

Movie Review: Light & Magic * This Series Will Blow You Away As It Peeks At Some Of The Greatest Special Effects Used In Cinema History

Granted unparalleled access, Academy Award®-nominated filmmaker Lawrence Kasdan takes viewers on an adventure behind the curtains of Industrial Light & Magic, the special visual effects, animation and virtual production division of Lucasfilm. Learn what inspired some of the most legendary filmmakers in Hollywood history, and follow their stories from their earliest personal films to bringing George Lucas’ vision to life. The series is directed by Lawrence Kasdan, and the executive producers are Ron Howard, Brian Grazer, Justin Wilkes, Lawrence Kasdan, Kathleen Kennedy and Michelle Rejwan.

KIDS FIRST! Film Critic Heather S. comments, “Light & Magic is a documentary series that will blow you away! Go behind-the-scenes with renowned filmmakers and take a peek at some of the greatest special effects used in cinematic history.” Samantha P. adds, “You can venture behind the scenes of movies created by Lucasfilm, the legendary company founded by George Lucas, which makes all of their Star Wars films and more.

Light & Magic 

By Heather S., KIDS FIRST! Film Critic, age 16

Light & Magic is a documentary series that will blow you away! Go behind-the-scenes with renowned filmmakers and take a peek at some of the greatest special effects used in cinematic history. 

Light & Magic introduces audiences to the VFX company, Industrial Light & Magic, a division of Lucasfilm, who have produced many of the greatest special effects in movies. George Lucas, Steven Spielberg and James Cameron are just a few of the filmmakers that talk about their experience working with Industrial Light & Magic and how this visionary company changed the way films are made. 

This series has something for everyone. Never-before-seen content from Titanic, Harry Potter, and Avengers is provided in Light & Magic. Rare sketches and concept art are shown, and it’s enough to thrill even an average fan. Hearing how all of these blockbusters like Avatar and Jurassic Park came together firsthand from the filmmakers is incredible. Directors who have taken the world by storm explain in detail where their visions came from and how Industrial Light & Magic helped the visions come to life. By the end of the series, viewers will feel like they worked on the movies themselves. The show, featuring several testimonials and anecdotes from the films’ editors, producers and VFX artists, helps audiences truly understand how it “takes a village” to make a movie. For any aspiring young actors, cinematographers, and directors, Light & Magic is a must watch. A standout piece of the series is the introduction of the Stagecraft, the immersive and adaptable video screens used in shows like The Mandalorian and Obi-Wan Kenobi. It just goes to show how much technology has evolved over the decades and how George Lucas and Lucasfilm have been instrumental in its evolution.

The purpose of Light & Magic is to engage its viewers with tales of how green screens and VFX began, and how various technologies have impacted and revolutionized cinema.

I give Light & Magic 5 out of 5 stars and recommend it for ages 12 to 18, plus adults. All six episodes of Light & Magic premiere on July 27, 2022, exclusively on Disney+.

Light & Magic

By Samantha P., KIDS FIRST! Film Critic, age 12

Light & Magic is a good docu-series to watch, especially if you have ever dreamed of making movies. You can venture behind the scenes of movies created by Lucasfilm, the legendary company founded by George Lucas, which makes all of their Star Wars films and more. Discover how movie magic, or the creation of special effects, is made in each of the six 1-hour episodes.

This series showcases the filmmakers from Industrial Light and Magic, which is the special effects division of Lucasfilm. Light & Magic delivers a deep understanding about the background of some very popular movies, including Star Wars, Transformers and Indiana Jones. It shows how the filmmakers persevere even when things are hard and seem almost impossible. The filmmakers have faith in their vision and share how they follow their dreams when other people say it’s not going to work out. It’s inspiring for anyone who wants to work in film or other ambitious creative endeavors. Light & Magic mostly focuses on George Lucas’ vision, Star Wars, since he’s the founder of both Lucasfilm and Industrial Light & Magic, and it is directed by Lawrence Kasden.

In a series that is all about making great movies, of course the production value is great. The music enhances the mood, captivates the audience, builds tension, and makes the resolution more clear. Dramatic music plays as the filmmakers explain how their project wasn’t working out, but energetic music plays when the problem works itself out in the end. These episodes feature over 13 people, including George Lucas, Steven Spielberg, Dennis Muren, Ron Howard and many more. These are industry experts that any aspiring filmmaker should know about as they begin their own journey in making movies. Light & Magic also shares many clips from movies as examples to help bring their points to life for the audience.

The message of this docu-series is to persevere even when you are doubtful. This message is something that anyone can relate to, but especially artists who must have faith in their vision. Even people who created great hit movies have once doubted themselves, and new filmmakers can relate to that idea.

I give Light & Magic 5 out of 5 stars and recommend it for ages 8 to 18, plus adults. All six episodes are available on Disney+ beginning July 27, 2022.

Light & Magic 

By Selene W., KIDS FIRST! Film Critic, age 14 

A long time ago in a galaxy, or warehouse, far, far away from a massive studio, a brave alliance of technological wizards challenged the creativity and standards of special effects in the motion picture industry.  These unsung heroes came together and accepted the visionary challenge and used their ingenuity to create and build Industrial Light & Magic (ILM) which is an iconic part of the Star Wars’ lore.

If you have any interest in the behind-the-scenes of making Star Wars, special effects or digital imaging, then Light & Magic is a series not to be missed!  The archival footage gives viewers a peak behind the wizards’ curtains into creating movie MAGIC and collaborative storytelling.  Experience what inspired some of the most legendary filmmakers to let their imagination soar into any galaxy or dimension beyond.

Interviews with legendary directors including George Lucas, Steven Spielberg, Ron Howard, James Cameron, Robert Zemeckis and Jon Favreau add to the depth of this series and truly illuminate how instrumental digital filmmaking has become to storytelling. The rebel alliance at ILM created a digital revolution in the film industry which expanded into other areas of industry as well, which truly was life changing for many. Viewers get to experience snippets of various special effect scenes from Star Wars, Indiana Jones, Terminator, Forest Gump, Jurassic Park and Mandalorian to name just a few! These groundbreaking artists under the guidance of visionary George Lucas show us that, just because something hasn’t been done before, doesn’t mean it can’t be done. Lawrence Kasdan directs this documentary series and is in a unique position to guide us through the history of imagination and technological change.

The essence of this series illustrates that anything is possible.  This ragtag group of artists accomplished things together that were light years ahead of current standards.  Their hard work and dedication to the project and their craft truly produced something that is still magical today.

I give this documentary series 5 out of 5 stars and recommend it for ages 8 to 18, plus adults.  The six episode series launches on Disney+ July 27, 2022. Don’t miss the magic and incredible journey behind the scenes!

Movie Review: Strong Fathers, Strong Daughters * An Emotional Depiction Of The Ups And Downs Of A Father/Daughter Relationship

When a wealthy businessman learns of his daughter’s sudden engagement to a missionary, he embarks on a quest to keep her closer to home, but when his efforts go awry he must reconsider what it means to be a strong father.

KIDS FIRST! Film Critic Eshaan M. comments, “Strong Fathers, Strong Daughters is all about trust and respect in relationships. It encourages parents to let go of their children when they wish to fly away, and it promotes altruism, both professionally and in personal relationships.” Samantha P. adds, “Strong Fathers, Strong Daughters teaches important lessons about family values. This family-friendly movie doesn’t only benefit children; it also teaches fathers about letting go of their daughters, and to know when to step in to ensure a positive future.” Kyla C. wraps it up with, “Strong Fathers, Strong Daughters is a fantastic mix of romance, comedy and family life. The film is simply a must-see. Strong acting supports a well-developed plot. The message of Strong Fathers, Strong Daughters is that you have to let people make their own choices, whether you agree with their decisions or not.” See their full reviews below.

Strong Fathers, Strong Daughters

By Eshaan M., KIDS FIRST! Film Critic, age 16

Strong Fathers, Strong Daughters is an emotional depiction of the ups and downs of the relationship between a father and a daughter. It’s a superb summer watch.

Wealthy businessman, Steve Parston (Bart Johnson) just locked in a huge new deal based on his daughter Abby’s (Carrie Wampler) pitch deck. Soon after celebrating this achievement, he learns of Abby’s sudden engagement to Oz (Brandon Prado), a selfless missionary based in Mexico. Steve embarks on a quest to keep Abby closer to home and make her a partner in his new venture. However, when his efforts go awry, he must consider what it means to be a strong, supportive father.

Strong Fathers, Strong Daughters director David de Vos guides this film quite well, especially with the actors’ performances and the cinematography, by Rick Pendleton. Each actor seems comfortable in their role, especially Robyn Lively as Steve Parston’s wife, Connie. The Mexican angle seems a bit underdeveloped; it is rather inconsequential that we learn that Oz and his family are Mexican and run an orphanage in Mexico until the final scenes of the film. I’m not sure that this addition is meaningful and if so, why it doesn’t it come up earlier. The writing is a bit stilted at times, but the emotion with which Bart Johnson, in particular, plays his role helps lift the film back up.

Strong Fathers, Strong Daughters is all about trust and respect in relationships. It encourages parents to let go of their children when they wish to fly away, and it promotes altruism, both professionally and in personal relationships. Note that Christian missionary work is referred to, and we see children acting out in the film at times.

I give Strong Fathers, Strong Daughters 4.5 stars out of 5 and recommend it for ages 12 to 18, plus adults. Strong Fathers, Strong Daughters releases August 1, 2022 in theaters.

Strong Fathers, Strong Daughters

By Samantha P., KIDS FIRST! Film Critic, age 12

Strong Fathers, Strong Daughters teaches important lessons about family values. This family-friendly movie doesn’t only benefit children; it also teaches fathers about letting go of their daughters, and to know when to step in to ensure a positive future. Based on the bestselling book Strong Fathers, Strong Daughters by author Dr. Meg Meeker, the movie shares heartwarming values that make the whole family comfortable watching it together.

Actors Robyn Lively and Bart Johnson play Connie and Steve, the parents to Zoey, Abby, and Bridget in the movie. The movie starts with Abby, the oldest daughter, coming home from a business trip and surprising the family with the fact that she’s engaged. Not only is she giving up her career path at her dad’s office, but she is also running away to Africa with her future husband to care for the poor as missionaries with the church. Steve struggles with finding a way to let Abby accomplish her own dreams and start a new path, instead of continuing the dream they have always had together, even the dreams of what her future wedding would look like.

Robyn and Bart who play the believable role of husband and wife, are married outside of the movie, it turns out! I can imagine how this would add more depth to their roles. Abby and her fiancé Oz are played by Carrie Wampler and Brandon Prado. While these are the main characters, other actors that are important to the movie include Kayla DiVenere (as Zoey), Arden Myrin (as Crystal), David Barrera (as Carlos), and Maria Canals-Barrera (as Bella.) This movie is funny to watch, and the set design is exciting and colorful. Learning about the Mexican culture through the bright colors and fun decorations was also very interesting. The writing seemed predictable, though, without too many major twists. Not to give any spoilers, but I could imagine how it would end from the beginning.

The message of this movie is that families can persevere to solve different problems and to build strong futures together. Strong Fathers, Strong Daughters has alcohol consumption and breaking the rules with social media. In one scene, a daughter sneaks out to a party with boys against parent permission.

I give Strong Fathers, Strong Daughters 4 out of 5 stars and recommend it for ages 12 to 18, plus adults. You can watch it on Pure Flix starting on August 1, 2022.

Strong Fathers, Strong Daughters

By Kyla C, KIDS FIRST! Film Critic, age 13

Strong Fathers, Strong Daughters is a fantastic mix of romance, comedy and family life. The film is simply a must-see. Strong acting supports a well-developed plot.

The storyline of Strong Fathers, Strong Daughters follows Steve Parston (Bart Johnson), the father of three kids and husband of Connie Parston (Robyn Lively). The couple’s eldest child, Abby Parston (Carrie Wampler) returns to the family home in California after living in Mexico for months. Having had big plans to be business partners with Abby for years, Steve is shocked and unsupportive when she announces other plans. Will Steve learn to live without his daughter at home, or will he ruin everything with her in his refusal to move on?

The story of this film is very impressive, with each character having their own engaging subplot. Rather than awkwardly pausing the primary storyline to build on each of these subplots, the smaller stories develop in the midst of the main story, without viewers realizing it. As a result, there are characters that are cared for, many loose ends to be wrapped up and countless extra comedic and romantic bits in between. One of the best characters, Crystal (Arden Myrin), the wedding planner, is a perfect addition to the film. She is extremely enthusiastic about her job and very excited to be getting business; she brings lots of light to some of the bleaker, sadder scenes. These sequences provide the right balance of negative and positive energy. Another important aspect of Strong Fathers, Strong Daughters is the relatable family. This film truly demonstrates how, although family members disagree and argue, each person is seriously trying to help one another and do the best they can. Each of the three daughters goes through one or more realistic conflicts that they solve with guidance from their inner selves as well as from those around them. With a variety of difficult situations shown throughout the film, every viewer will have at least one struggle that is similar to something they, or someone they know, has dealt with. So many different connections allow Strong Fathers, Strong Daughters to reach many diverse audiences. The actors use these connections to make their character even easier to identify with. In particular, Kayla DiVenere gives an amazing performance as Zoey, the middle child in the family.

The message of Strong Fathers, Strong Daughters is that you have to let people make their own choices, whether you agree with their decisions or not. Steve tries to prevent Abby from making her own decisions, and ends up realizing that it is not his choice to make. There is some minor language to be aware of.

I give Strong Fathers, Strong Daughters 5 out of 5 stars and recommend it for ages 5 to 18, plus adults. You can watch Strong Fathers, Strong Daughters exclusively on PureFlex beginning August 1, 2022.

Why Using Pre-Stretched Hair for Braided Hairstyles and How?

Braiding hair gives people the opportunity to experiment with their hair. They can try out different styles and do whatever they feel like. The braiding hair available in the market is easy to use, and can be applied in just within a few seconds. The artificial hair used helps pack out and lengthen the natural hair. This thus helps give a fuller effect by getting blended with the natural hair.

Some great quality hair available in the market looks so good that it is hard to differentiate between the natural and man-made hair. The best part about using them is that you will not have to worry about the extra care, and just care for them the way you do your natural hair.

If you use the Xpression braiding hair tight and neat, they will last longer than usual, thereby offering better results. It simply means that you will not have to brainstorm the different styles, and you can go days without styling them often.

The Pre-Stretched Braiding Hair

Pre-stretched braiding hair is one of the kinds of braiding hair available, and they are highly recommended to be used. As the name suggests, the hair is stretched already, and you will not have to stretch them again to be used. This saves the effort and time that you will otherwise have to spend in stretching the hair, before applying.

With pre-stretched braiding hair, all you need to do is to grab them after getting ready and clip them to your natural hair. Stretching the unstretched hair not only requires time, but it also requires the right skill. Without knowing the technique properly, you may damage them.

Braided Hairstyles Using Pre-stretched Hair

 

  • Box Braids: It is one of the classic and beautiful hairstyles made using the pre-stretched braiding hair. You can either wear them loose or long, the style that you prefer, and both are loving.
  • Festival Braids: This style will get you ready for the festive season. For this look, you can purchase the colorful pre-stretched hair available as well. If you love a colorful rainbow braid, achieve the look with the most common braiding hair available in the market. Add the required drama to your hairstyle.
  • Half Up Half Down Braided Hair: Bored of keeping the hair always up or down? Try this hairstyle where you can keep half hair up and half hair down. This hairstyle with pre-stretched braided hair will give you the best of both worlds. Get a versatile hairstyle when you are not able to make your mind.

Final Thoughts

Achieve the look that you have always craved for with the best quality pre-stretched braiding hair. Style them the way you like, without impacting your natural hair. Some hairstyles made using the pre-stretched look will make you the showstopper of every party.

What is SPF in Sunscreen ?

What is SPF in Sunscreen ?

What_is_SPF_in_Sunscreen_540x.jpg

What is SPF in Sunscreen?

It is summertime in India, which means the sun is the strongest it will be all year. With the summer comes the opportunity to spend more time outdoors, be it at the beach, hiking, or on a camping trip. But as gorgeous as the summer is, you need to protect your skin from exposure to harmful UV rays that damage our skin.

There’s no reason NOT to take care of your skin in the summer. Enjoy being outside, but don’t forget to take cover under an umbrella and use a lot of sunscreen. The sun’s rays can damage your skin in a number of ways, including premature aging and cancer. The best way to protect yourself is by using sunscreen that has a sun protection factor (SPF) of at least 15.

What is SPF?

SPF is the sun protection factor and it’s one of many sunscreen acronyms. SPF is also referred to as a UV Sun protection factor. It is a measure of a sunscreen’s ability to prevent UVB from penetrating the skin.

Of the four biggest skin care mistakes people make when traveling, SPF is the most important one. Why? The sun’s rays are too strong and will mess up your skin, hair, and overall look. This is why sunscreen is so important.

Sunscreen SPF number

The SPF number also indicates how much UVB protection a sunscreen offers. The higher the number, the more protection you have against UVB rays. The SPF in sunscreen label tells you how long you can stay in the sun before getting burned. For example, if you normally burn after 10 minutes in the sun without any protection, an SPF 15 product will allow you to spend 150 times longer — about 15 hours — in the sun before burning.

There are different types of SPF in sunscreen. Here’s a breakdown of the most common ones:

  1. SPF 15. This low-protection sunscreen is recommended for everyday use and is best for people with sensitive skin or children. It offers broad-spectrum protection from both UVA and UVB rays, but it doesn’t protect against both equally well. While SPF 15 blocks 93 percent of UVB rays, it only blocks about 74 percent of UVA rays.
  2. SPF 30. This mid-range sunscreen provides more protection than SPF 15, but not as much as higher numbers. SPF 30 blocks 97 percent of UVB rays and about 79 percent of UVA rays.
  3. SPF 50+. Higher-number sunscreens offer very good protection against both UVA and UVB rays; they block 98 percent or more of these harmful rays.
  4. Broad-spectrum SPF, which protects your skin from UVA and UVB rays, is the most important ingredient in a sunscreen. If you see “broad spectrum” on the label, it means the product offers sun protection against both UVA and UVB rays.

If you’re looking for the highest SPF in sunscreen possible, is there any reason to choose one with a high number? Does SPF 100 protect you better than SPF 50?

The answer is no. Sunscreens with higher SPF numbers provide only slightly more protection than ones with lower numbers. And an SPF of 30 is all you need to prevent sunburn and protect your skin from UVB rays.

Types of SPF

There are two types of SPF in sunscreen: physical and chemical. Each type has its own strengths and weaknesses.

  • Physical sunscreens protect you by deflecting or absorbing UV rays before they can penetrate your skin. They contain active mineral ingredients that sit on top of the skin and reflect UVA and UVB rays away from your body. Physical sunscreens include zinc oxide and titanium dioxide.

If you have normal skin, physical SPF is recommended as it protects against both UVA and UVB rays without clogging pores or causing breakouts.

  • Chemical sunscreens absorb UV rays before they reach your skin, preventing them from penetrating through layers of skin and causing damage to DNA within cells. Chemical-based products include avobenzone, octocrylene, homovalvate, octisalate, and octinoxate.

While physical SPF can be irritating to oily skin types, chemical ones work well for oily types because they absorb quickly without leaving an oily residue behind.

Steps to apply Sunscreen / Sun shield?

  1. As advised by the skincare experts, apply sunscreen 15 minutes before you go outside so it can soak into your skin. This will give it time to dry before you start sweating.
  2. Apply enough to cover all exposed areas of skin and rub it in well. You should use about 1 ounce (about a shot glass worth) for your entire body if you’re swimming or sweating a lot. If you have sensitive skin, try applying less at first and then adding more later if necessary.
  3. Put on your clothes and then apply sunscreen again over those areas that are exposed and more likely to burn — like your neck, face, ears, hands and feet.
  4. Reapply every hour when you’re constantly exposed to the sun.
  5. If you are somebody who loves being outdoor, sweats a lot or enjoys going to the beach, swimming etc. on a regular basis, using water-resistant sunscreen is recommended. Re-apply as soon as you are out after drying yourself up and every 40-80 minutes.

Who needs sunscreen?

We all know that sunscreen is a must, but who needs it? The answer is pretty much everyone.

Even if you spend most of your time indoors, you can still get sun damage on your face and body. Even if you don’t feel like you’re getting burned, the sun can still cause wrinkles and age spots.

A lot of people believe that darker skin tones mean there is more pigment to protect our skin from UV damage. This is simply not true.

The colour of our skin has nothing to do with how much protection we get from sun exposure. Darker-skinned people can develop basal cell carcinoma and melanoma just as easily as their lighter counterparts — and they can also suffer from sunburns or other damage if they’re not properly protected by sunscreen or clothing every day when they’re out in the sun.

Sunscreen is important for everyone, so even if you think it’s not necessary for you — it probably is.

Choosing Your Sunscreen

If you’re new to using sunscreen, don’t be intimidated by all the choices online. Look for products that have an SPF in sunscreen of at least 30 and contain zinc oxide or titanium dioxide. Here are the steps to take when choosing a sunscreen:

  • Look for broad spectrum protection. This means that the sunscreen protects against both UVA and UVB rays. UVA rays can cause aging and wrinkling of the skin, while UVB rays burn the skin and increase your risk of skin cancer.
  • Don’t buy sunscreens that claim to be waterproof or sweat proof. They don’t work as well as regular sunscreens and can make your skin more sensitive to the sun’s rays.
  • Avoid oxybenzone, parabens and retinyl palmitate
  • Read labels carefully when buying sunscreen sprays or sticks because these products don’t always offer high levels of protection. Some only provide protection up to SPF 15 or 20, so they’re less effective than lotions or creams with higher SPFs (30 or higher).

Taking the Indian weather and skin types into consideration after a detailed research and development, our skincare experts brought out the Kailon Sun Shield SPF 40 (For All Skin Types) which provides broad spectrum protection to the skin from the sun’s harmful rays. Kailon Sun Shield SPF 40 is one of the best sunscreen for sensitive skin.

It’s true that there’s no such thing as a magic bullet when it comes to sun protection. The best defense is a good offense, and sunscreen should be used daily — before going outside, not just on sunny days.

SPF 40 is recommended for daily use because it provides strong protection against UVB rays. However, no sunscreen can block 100% of UVB rays. So even though you may be using SPF 40 every day, some exposure to UVB rays is still unavoidable. That’s why it’s important to wear hats, sunglasses and protective clothing when outside during peak hours of sunlight exposure (10 am – 4 pm).

Movie Review: High School Musical:  The Musical:  The Series:  Season 3 * The Music Of This Series Is So Central To The Show’s Popularity And This Season Is Better Than Ever

Season three of “High School Musical: The Musical: The Series” is set at Camp Shallow Lake, a sleep away camp in California, as the Wildcats and their fellow campers are primed for an unforgettable summer ripe with romance, curfew-less nights and a taste of the great outdoors.  With a high-stakes production of “Frozen” on the horizon AND a drama-filled “docu-series” of the production, the Wildcats will attempt to show who is “best in snow” without leaving anyone out in the cold.

KIDS FIRST! Film Critic Selene W., comments, “Are you ready to join your favorite Wildcats at summer camp?  Then don’t miss High School Musical:  The Musical:  The Series:  Season 3.  Adventure awaits as our motley group reunites at summer camp and meets new friends for two weeks of fun in the sun!” See her full review below.

High School Musical:  The Musical:  The Series:  Season 3

Are you ready to join your favorite Wildcats at summer camp?  Then don’t miss High School Musical:  The Musical:  The Series:  Season 3.  Adventure awaits as our motley group reunites at summer camp and meets new friends for two weeks of fun in the sun!

After an amazing year at East High, the Wildcats journey to Camp Shallow Lake in California to start their summer escapade.  What could be better than sleepaway camp at a location primed for summer romance, intrigue and high-spirited jinks set in the great outdoors?  It’s an unforgettable summer as the campers prepare for a high-stakes production of Frozen.

My favorite parts are the audition scenes for Frozen.  I really loved watching everyone dance and sing to some of the amazing songs and enjoyed the dialogue in this iconic production.  I just can’t “Let It Go” how these various auditions are spliced together in Season 3, capturing all the drama and competitive nature of auditions, while still maintaining the positivity and support among cast members.  You won’t be left in the cold watching the talent of this dynamic group. The music and original songs in Season 3 do not disappoint.  That’s really saying something since the music of this series has been so central to the show’s popularity and success from the first two seasons. Tim Federle (Creator, Showrunner, and Executive Producer) of High School Musical:  The Musical:  The Series really has created a collaborative and supportive environment on set with the cast, which shows in their performances.  The show feels authentic with its teen cast and I really love its positivity.

The essence of this series is that you can personally grow and explore all life has to offer in a supportive and caring environment.  Even when friendships and relationships change it allows characters to embrace their differences and support each other throughout the process.  It’s fun to watch the new experiences and growth in some of our favorite characters away from school expectations and pressures. 

High School Musical:  The Musical:  The Series:  Season 3 gets 5 out of 5 stars from me and I recommend it for ages 8 to 18, but adults will enjoy watching with their kids as well.  Season 3 will begin streaming on Disney+ July 27, 2022 so don’t miss this summer party!

Movie Review: Jurassic World Camp Cretaceous Season 5 * This Season’s Message And Plot Are Deeper Than Previous, Because It Deals With Cruelty Towards The Dinosaurs

Set against the timeline of the blockbuster Jurassic World films, Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous follows a group of six teenagers chosen for a once-in-a-lifetime experience at Camp Cretaceous, a new adventure camp on the opposite side of Isla Nublar who must work together to survive.  In season 5, the arrival of Kenji’s father, Mr. Kon, renews hope of a rescue for the campers. But as the nefarious plans of Mantah Corp. come into focus and one of the Camp Fam turns on their own, the others must band together if they want to save the dinosaurs and ever make it home. 

KIDS FIRST! Film Critic Giana N. comments, “The show Jurassic World Camp Cretaceous is back for its 5th and final season. This season’s message and plot are deeper than the rest, because it deals with animal cruelty towards the dinosaurs. Even with that, this is still an action-packed season that you don’t want to miss.” See her full review below.

Jurassic World Camp Cretaceous Season 5

Giana N., KIDS FIRST! Film Critic, Age 11

The show Jurassic World Camp Cretaceous is back for its 5th and final season. This season’s message and plot are deeper than the rest, because it deals with animal cruelty towards the dinosaurs. Even with that, this is still an action-packed season that you don’t want to miss.

The final season of this show centers on friends Kenji (Ryan Potter), Brooklyn (Jenna Ortega), Yasmine (Kausar Mohammed), Ben (Sean Giambrone), Sammy (Raini Rodriguez) and Darius (Paul-Mikél Williams) who are hoping for a chance to get found as they are stuck on an unknown island.  As Kenji’s father, Mr. Kon (Andrew Kishino), appears, their hope for making it out is somewhat high, but not for long. Mr. Kon is planting chips in the dinosaurs’ brains, leaving the dinosaurs with no control over themselves. They must work together if they ever want to save the dinosaurs and make it off of the island alive.

Something I like and find unique, is how the kids act towards the dinosaurs. Even though the dinosaurs sometimes try to eat them, they don’t treat them like evil creatures or as if they are always the bad guy. The kids want to protect the dinosaurs and make their lives and environment better. Another aspect of the show that I enjoy is that they incorporated modern items, such as a tablet and phone, to what feels like a prehistoric time with dinosaurs. My favorite episode is “Shaky Ground” because it mainly focuses on Darius and Brooklyn trying to figure out how to cope with what they see and what they know. This episode shows how they are able to work a difficult problem through together. My favorite character is Darius, because he is the most gentle and caring towards the dinosaurs and he is a nice kid in general. I also enjoy the scenes with Ben because he has a great sense of humor. Even when things are not going their way, he finds a way to make the situation light.

The message of Jurassic World Camp Cretaceous is that you should treat everyone and everything fairly. What happens to the dinosaurs in this season is unfair and the kids know it. That is why they go out of their way to help save them. This is totally family-friendly and a great show to watch.

I give Jurassic World Camp Cretaceous 4.5 out of 5 stars and recommend it for ages 5 to 12. This is also a great show for families to watch together. You can watch this show on Netflix starting July 21, 2022. Be sure to check it out!

Movie Review: Zombies 3 * This Zombie-Filled, Beastly, Out-Of-This-World Film Is Everything A Disney Fan Could Want!

It’s Zed and Addison’s final year at Seabrook and things are better than ever. The town has finally accepted monsters as a part of Seabrook and has become a safe haven for monsters and humans alike. Zed is on the cusp of receiving a football scholarship and becoming the first Zombie to ever attend college (and he’s excited to join Addison who has already been admitted). Addison is excited to mark the opening of the town’s brand new “cheer pavilion” by inviting cheer teams from all over the world to compete in an “international cheer-off.” However, the town is shocked by the arrival of a new group of intergalactic outsiders – Aliens, who show up to compete in the cheer-off. Though they begrudgingly allow the Aliens to stay for the competition – the monsters and humans of Seabrook grow suspicious when they discover that the Aliens may be looking for more than a friendly competition. Some flashing lights sequences or patterns may affect photosensitive viewers.

KIDS FIRST! Film Critic Tiana S. comments, “This Zombie-filled, “cheertastic,” beastly and out-of-this-world film, is everything a Disney movie fan could want! With the same original characters from Zombies 1 and 2, as well as, some new extra-terrestrial friends, Zombies 3 will have fans singing, dancing, cheering and feeling every emotion.” See her full review below.

Zombies 3
By Tiana S., KIDS FIRST! Film Critic, age 12

This Zombie-filled, “cheertastic,” beastly and out-of-this-world film, is everything a Disney movie fan could want! With the same original characters from Zombies 1 and 2, as well as, some new extra-terrestrial friends, Zombies 3 will have fans singing, dancing, cheering and feeling every emotion.

Zombies 3 is about Addison (Meg Donnelly) who is still trying to find where she belongs and graduate from Seabrook High along with her zombie boyfriend, Zed (Milo Manheim), who is trying to break history as the first monster to go to college. While humans, zombies and werewolves have learned to co-exist in Seabrook, everything changes when aliens show up on Earth on a mission to uncover a code that leads them to their home planet. Will the aliens be able to reach their goal while the Seabrook students fight to win the Cheer Cup during their last year in high school?

The main characters are Addison, Zed and the aliens. As the third installment of the Zombies’ franchise, this film still has the same spirit as the previous ones. The soundtrack is quite different, with more of an “alien-like” vibe to it. I love the aspect of inclusion in this film and how, even though the franchise is called Zombies, it includes many types of monsters with different powers among the humans. It’s heartwarming to see how Addison is always there for everyone and welcomes them to Seabrook High. She is the activist, leader and overall best friend of everyone at Seabrook, plus newcomers.  This film is based on Secrets Galore. Be prepared to be stunned by what is revealed in Zombies 3.

Some lessons from Zombies 3 are that anything is possible when you try, trust is always the key, and people have to do what they need to get what they want and need in life. This is demonstrated when Zed advocates to become the first zombie to go to college, how Addison trusts the aliens and welcomes them to join the Cheer Cup, despite their entrance and alien bodies, and how the aliens come to earth to find the most precious thing and will do whatever it takes to achieve that.

I give this film 4 out of 5 stars and recommend it for ages 8 to 12, plus adults. You can watch Zombies 3 on Disney+ now.
