How to Clean Makeup Brushes

Sat, 04 Mar 2017 13:11:00 +0000

Cleaning Makeup Brushes is Good for the SkinLooking for the Best Way to Clean Makeup Brushes? Professional makeup artists know the importance of cleaning makeup brushes for the health of the skin, to get the best makeup application and to make sure that contamination doesn't occur from used and dirty makeup brushes. Regular cleaning of your makeup brushes and sponges will also help them last as long as possible to protect your investment.If you're an aspiring professional makeup artist, a make up guru or just want to make sure that you're using the proper tools and equipment to get the best look at home, you must keep your tools - brushes and makeup sponges clean at all times.Dirty makeup brushes can hold germs and bacteria that we can end up transferring to our clean skin. Using dirty makeup brushes and sponges could be one of the reasons you don't have clean and radiant skin. Cleaning makeup brushes doesn't take long and it will help your brushes last longer and perform much better with some simple tips. Your tools should be thoroughly cleaned at least once a week or more often if you use them daily with heavy applications or multiple colors. Use these tips for the best way to clean makeup brushes.Easy Steps to Cleaning Makeup BrushesDerma-nu Natural Makeup Remover and Cleansing Milk to Clean Makeup Brushes!* Buy a natural and chemical free makeup remover that is alcohol free, paraben-free and fragrance free and suitable and gentle enough for the most sensitive skin and even safe for contact lens wearers. Most makeup removers come in a liquid or gel form. The pads won't work for cleaning your brushes.  Klorane Makeup Remover is Dermatologist and ophthalmologist tested. Hypoallergenic. Fragrance-free, paraben-free, alcohol-free and colorant-free in a convenient pump  Many people use soap and water but, many soaps contain ingredients that dry and leave a residue that will be harder to remove from brushes and water alone will not remove the dirt or foundations - just as is so for cleaning your skin. Eye makeup remover is specifically made to remove foundations and is not only a great choice for the skin but, also works quickly and efficiently for the tools you use every day.* Pour a small amount of the eye makeup remover into the palm of your hand.* Take one of your brushes and swirl the brush end into the cleaner in your hand until all the bristles of the brush are well coated with the cleaner. Spend a full minute or two swirling the brush end into the cleaner.* Rinse the brush end under tepid water until all of the dirt and makeup are removed making sure to allow the water to run down the bristles of the brush and not into the handle area. (This will help your applicators to last longer and keep the handle from separating from the handle).* Squeeze as much water from the bristle end with your hand making sure to keep the shape of it intact.* Next, use a towel to squeeze out more water.* Lay it flat on the sink with the bristle end hanging into the sink area and not on the surface of the sink or the towel to air dry OR use a large glass or cup to dry the makeup brush by resting the handle area into the glass. Air drying is the best way and the fastest way to dry the makeup brush bristles. * Repeat this procedure for all of your brushes and sponges until they are all cleaned. Proper storage of makeup brushes will help them last longer     Store Makeup Brushes Properly to Keep them at their Best!* Once each sponge or makeup brush is completely dry, store them in a case or container that allows each one to lay flat and covered. This will help them to stay clean when not in use. This is one of the best priced portable cosmetic cases that can be used every day and for travel with pockets to separate all your makeup brushes, sponges and products.           If the bristles on your makeup brushes are falling out or they don't hold their shape and not doing a good job applying your products, it's probably time to[...]

Ways to Relieve Dry Itchy Winter Skin

Tue, 28 Feb 2017 17:19:00 +0000

Dry Winter Skin: Dry Itchy Skin RemediesUse these tips to relieve dry itchy winter skinDry Winter Skin is fairly common for many men and women due to the cold temperatures, wind, and heat from the furnace, being indoors, lack of humidity and inadequate moisture to the cells of the largest organ in the body. Dry skin also looks older than moist skin so if an additional concern you have is to prevent aging skin, these dry skin tips will help in that area as well.Dry skin becomes flaky, itchy, dull, rough, wrinkled, cracked and red and can be painful and uncomfortable if left untreated. Follow these tips for dry itchy skin remedies and prevent dry winter skin from ever bothering you again.8 Simple Dry Itchy Skin Remedies that Really Work:Drink more water – the human body is made mostly of water and the cold winter months can cause the skin to lose moisture in the cells from our furnaces, dry air and lack of humidity. Drinking water throughout the day is one remedy for dry skin that is easy to do and tap water works just fine.If you avoid drinking more water than the body needs because you don't like the taste of tap water, consider buying a water filtration system that fits directly over your kitchen faucet. Check out the Pur 3 Stage Advanced Water Filter - an Amazon best seller.  You'll be amazed at how the quality of your water is improved when you remove trace minerals and over 70 contaminants from tap drinking water.Exfoliate dry skin – use a natural body exfoliating product in the shower several times a week to remove dry dead skin cells. Human skin will naturally slough off alone but can take months to happen. Assisting the exfoliating process will reduce dry itchy skin much faster and is a very easy application during a shower. Try Artnaturals Dead Sea Mud Mask, loaded with just a few (all healthy ingredients) and the scent of seaweed or the sea. Apply a thick coating to face, neck and chest. I do my hands too - picture for you to see!artnaturals dead sea mud mask handcial image by radiantskinexpertadviceKeep iy on about 15 minutes, add warm water and massage in circular motion to get the exfoliation benefits, Works as a mask to pull out toxins, and as an exfoliator to remove dry dead skin.  I love it and you will too. Avoid eye area.Shower with warm water – warm water is much safer on the skin and prevents further drying of the skin as opposed to using hot water. Finish a daily shower with a cool water rinse to seal the pores and retain moisture. Pat dry and add an oil (try coconut, argan or apricot oil) mixed with moisturizer, blending in circular motion all over the skin. Vicks Warm Mist Humidifier with Auto Shut OffUse a Warm Mist Humidifier – using a humidifier during dry winter months will greatly improve dry itchy skin. Humidifiers are available online at many locations that sell health and wellness products and cost an average of $30.Try the Vicks Warm Mist Humidifier with Auto Shut Off from This humidifier is lightweight, quiet, has a low and high setting and a tank of filtered water will last about 24 hours.The Vicks Warm Mist Humidifier also has a medicine cup, the steam aims upward and will not cool the room air as the cool mist humidifiers tend to do. The unit stays cool and is safe and easy to use and clean. Eat more Fresh Fruit and Vegetables – fresh fruit and vegetables contain water naturally as well as vitamins and are healthy for the body and help to prevent dry itchy skin. Snack on fruit or vegetables throughout the day and notice an improvement in irritating dry winter skin. Remember that fruit juice or vegetable juice typically contains too much sugar and other unhealthy ingredients that tend to do more harm than good unless you read the ingredients carefully. Get in the habit of eating fresh fruit to naturally hydrate dry itchy skin and start to feel better overall.Exercise – exercise will help dry itchy skin since during exercise, creating a workout sweat helps to clean out the pores of toxins [...]

Common Skin Conditions with Causes and Treatments

Mon, 14 Nov 2016 07:19:00 +0000

Some of the more common skin conditions are problems that you can care for at home without the need for a doctor or medications. We'll share the most common skin issues such as pimples, rashes, bumps, redness, eczema, psoriasis and give you the causes of these plus the tools you need to get rid of these problems. We'll also let you know when to seek the professional help of a doctor for more severe and dangerous skin conditions.Era Organics Eczema and Psoriasis Cream image by Amazon     We've organized the most common skin conditions with the causes and treatments to help you find your own problem with your skin and ways to relieve these issues now and in the future.  Pimples - One of the absolute most common skin conditions that men and women alike typically get at some point in their lives and seek information on what to do to get rid of them. Pimples are small raised red bumps on the skin, mostly on the face, neck or back. Pimples can be isolated as one or two or even show up in clusters or small groups. Facial Pimples image by     Cause of Pimples - Pimples are caused from clogged pores and bacteria under the skin. They can also show up during hormonal changes such as in puberty, during pregnancy and even in menopause.      Treatment of Pimples -          1. Pimples can be treated by properly washing the face and back with products for your skin type and keeping the pores clear.          2. Treat pimples by steaming the face to open the pores. You can safely steam your face once a week and you'll love how it feels too.ArtNaturals Dead Sea Mud Mask to treat pimples, whiteheads and blackheads         3. You've read our other posts recommending a good mud mask to the face, neck and even the back to get rid of pimples, whiteheads and blackheads. Try the ArtNaturals Organic Dead Sea Mud Mask as shown to the left. You'll be happy you tried it as over 1,400 other customers are.I have it and use it not only for my face and neck but, also on my hands to make them super soft.See my photo below.  Artnaturals dead sea mud mask on the hands makes them super soft too!          4. Add an exfoliant that will scrub the pores, remove the dry dead skin cells and give your skin a squeaky clean feel.Without treatment, pimples will spread to more areas of the face and back and can grow larger and become painful.               Skin Care Don't - Pick or prod at pimples. Picking at your pimples will only cause more problems since if there's any pus under the skin, you won't get it all out and you'll get another pimple and you can also cause scarring.  Whiteheads and Blackheads - These are very tiny areas on the skin, also known as comedones.     Cause of Whiteheads and Blackheads - Clogged pores cause these spots on the skin when the skin can't breathe due to blockage of dirt and bacteria.  Pores become clogged if you leave dirt and makeup on the skin, improper washing of the skin or not adding moisture. Our skin has sebaceous glands that produce oils. When you don't add moisture, the skin compensates by producing more oils in an effort to help. Too much oil can lead to increased pimples, whiteheads and blackheads. If you look closely at a whitehead, there is no opening at the center. Blackheads on the other hand, do have a tiny opening at the center.     Treatment of Whiteheads and Blackheads - It's time to start cleaning your skin better if you continue to have these blemished areas on the skin. Use the right cleanser for your skin type. Exfoliate the dry, dead skin cells to help the skin breathe. A mud mask like the Artnaturals Dead Sea Mud Ma[...]

Tips for Acne Free Skin that is Radiant

Mon, 14 Nov 2016 07:18:00 +0000

Anyone with acne knows that it is troublesome skin that can hurt physically with painful areas, boils, cyst like pustules, large pimples, blackheads and redness that interferes with your social life, professional life and can hurt your self esteem.Acne can be relieved by following a skin care regime that provides health and nutrition to your skin without adding extra irritants and chemicals. Start with these tips to improve acne and obtain radiant skin:* Wash your hands before touching your skin - to avoid bacteria from the hands getting onto the face and neck, making acne worse.  * Exercise - is crucial to having radiant skin since exercise will help to produce sweat which helps to remove toxins from the skin. Get a good workout daily for at least 30 minutes (or start with 10 minutes and increase it daily) that makes you sweat out impurities in the skin. Walking briskly or running are easy exercises that don't require equipment so there's little excuses to get moving for radiant skin.* Add more fresh fruit and fresh vegetables to your diet - these foods contain essential vitamins and anti oxidants that are good for the insides and in turn help to produce clearer skin.* Avoid fatty greasy foods that add additional oils to the body's organ and the skin is the largest organ we have.* Use natural, organic cleansers and a moisturizer to your daily skincare habits. Wash your face daily in the am and pm for the best outcome.* During the day avoid touching the face - use the back of hands to reduce adding oils or dirt.Organic Liquid Multivitamin for Acne* Take daily multivitamins to give your skin the best vitamins and minerals to help strengthen and heal the sk.  Important Tip About moisturizing: Many people with acne think they do not need moisturizers since they typically have oily skin already.***** When you fail to add moisturizer to your skin, your skin produces sebum, an oil from the sebaceous glands in an effort to add moisture, since the body can't produce moisture. Add the proper moisturizer with natural ingredients every morning and evening in small amounts and your body will reduce the amount of oil it produces. You will see less problem skin within a short amount of time!**** Avoid harmful ingredients to the skin such as mineral oil which clogs the pores and adds to pimples and blemishes; alcohol which dries out the skin, hurts and can cause redness; paraffin which causes whiteheads, irritates the skin and clogs pores; urea which is cat urine; petroleum which also irritates and clogs pores; animal by-products that add no value to the skin and artificial scents which irritate and can burn the skin and formaldehyde which is a common preservative that is absorbed into the skin and absorbed into  the bloodstream.* Avoid picking at acne! As tempting as it may be, picking at your pimples and acne WILL make it worse since you can never get all that pus and bacteria out of each pimple or acne blemish and much of it will stay under the skin and produce another zit! Don't pick your face.  Do all these other steps instead and you will see improvement.Follow these tips for clear and radiant skin - it may take up to three months of constant working on these steps to see results depending on the degree of acne, but you will notice a difference.

Travel Essentials for Skin Protection

Thu, 10 Nov 2016 17:01:00 +0000

We've got your top travel essentials to protect your skin that are needed for that next long awaited vacation or quick weekend getaway. The last thing you want when you go on vacation is to get a terrible sunburn that will keep you from enjoying your time away due to sun burns, sun damage and even sun poisoning. Top Travel Essentials for Skin Protection - Icetek Sports Clamp on Beach Umbrella by Amazon     When I was in college, a group of friends and I planned our Spring Break for months. We were young so packed the essential beach wear, makeup, accessories and a few party outfits. On the very first day at arriving at our Daytona Beach stay we hit the beach without preparing our skin. After a few hours on the beach, my room mate developed huge swollen ankles, redness, blisters and pain. We immediately got her back to our room and as the day progressed, her condition got worse. She spent the next 5 days sitting on the edge of the tub as we kept it full of cold water and ice packs!  We had to party and visit in the bathroom for the next five days. Had we known more about the sun and it's damaging effects,  we should have taken her to the hospital and we could have had a better time while Beth would have avoided the pain she endured.     ** The good news is that on the last day of our vacation, Beth was able to go out and she won a dance contest! She had all that energy stored up and thankfully, her feet were better, better enough to dance her heart out!Don't let the sun ruin your next vacation, sun burns and sun poisoning can happen faster than you realize!Top Travel Essentials for Skin Protection.     ~  Sunglasses ~ Make sure you wear UV protection for your eyes. The sun is strong and the skin around the eyes is thin and delicate. We can easily get burned without proper eye protection. I love the type of sunglasses that cover the sides of the eyes, like these for example.      ~ Sun Hat ~ Beach hats are great protection for the eyes, face and head and also the neck and shoulders. Get a wide beach hat with spf  for the most protection so you can enjoy the beach or pool, shopping, golf and all the outdoor amenities that your vacation promises.     ~ Beach Clothing with SPF ~ We think it's super smart to wear vacation clothes that are super comfortable, lightweight, light colors, are easy to pack and also have built in UV protection. More and more people are getting smarter about the dangers of the sun and you're one of them!      ~ Beach Umbrella ~ This is our favorite Clamp on beach umbrella with SPF 50 in green or blue, it's super lightweight at only 12 oz, easy to pack or carry and can clamp on any beach chair you use. Many resorts and hotels will have umbrellas but, not all umbrellas have spf protection and you may just want a quiet more remote area for lounging.  Pick up an umbrella (it's super cheap) as a travel essential for skin protection and get out of the sun every now and then to give your skin a break from the sun while vacationing.You'll be happy that you did!     ~  Sunscreen ~ The number one travel essential for skin protection that you'll need plenty of is a broad spectrum organic sunscreen for all skin types. Whether you like a water resistant sunscreen spray or organic broad spectrum sunscreen cream, what's important is that you buy it and make sure to apply it as directed - usually a shot sized amount every hour while outdoors.     Use these top five travel essentials for skin protection as you prepare your next getaway. You'll have peace of mind for yourself and your family knowing you've done all you can to protect your skin from the sun's damaging rays.          Do you already use [...]

Facial Exercises for Skin Tightening

Mon, 07 Nov 2016 04:46:00 +0000

Image Facial Muscles courtesy of WikimediaLooking for the best facial exercises for skin tightening that are easy and won't take long to do each day? Keep reading, we're here to help. Use the facial muscles photos to see how the facial muscles look, their shapes and the direction they go as we go through these exercises. Facial exercises can be added to your daily beauty routine for men and women alike. We all have skin so there isn't one gender that will benefit more from adding exercises.Try these exercises in the morning while washing your face, on your break at work, while you're laying in bed getting ready for sleep or any time that you have a few minutes. The hardest part will probably be remembering to do them, for most people.The human body has 42 muscles in the face that help us make many different types of faces and motions. The process of gravity loosens these muscles so that as we age, we'll all notice a dropping of our facial muscles over time. There are six exercises each of us can do to slow that process of gravity and help to tighten the skin on the face for a younger and more radiant look.     Prep Needed Before Your Facial Exercises: ** Start with clean face, neck and hands so washing really good is the first step since you'll be working on your face. Our hands hold loads of bacteria that could be transferred to your face if you don't wash first. ** Have your skin care products ready** Pull your hair back to expose the face, ears and neck.  Organic Apricot Kernel Oil While You do Facial Exercises for Skin Tightening     Use just your fingertips alone or why not add your morning or night time skin products while you're exercising your face and neck. Get two tasks done at the same time.      ~ Apply Apricot Kernel Oil or your favorite skin treatment product to the outer eye moving in a circular motion. Go around and around using the ring fingers which have less power in them than the other fingers. Start at the edge of your eyebrows, move slowly under the eye and up to the eyelids as well.  Eye massaging can reduce pressure and headaches as well as increases circulation to help reduce puffy eyes and dark circles.     ~ Next, move on to the upper cheek bones. Slide your fingertips from the nose, across the cheeks and up to the forehead. I massage each area about 10 times and always in an upward direction. Review the photo at top so you can see the direction that all our facial muscles follow. These massages will help to tighten the skin and reduce tension too.     ~ Don't forget to massage the nose area. Slide the fingertips down the nose, and gently down the side of the nose.  Your sinuses will love you for this little massage you give it!     ~ Massage above the lip area, using a left to right motion since that's the direction of these muscles. TIP:  For the neck and chin muscle exercise, lay down on your bed across the width of the bed. Place your neck just at the edge of the bed so that your head hangs down and over the edge just a little. This motion will help to reduce the effects of gravity while you continue your massaging exercises.      ~ The chin muscles connect with the neck so you can move to the neck next. Start at the bottom of the neck, lift your chin and head upwards aiming your eyes towards the ceiling. Stroke your neck with the fingertips using an upward motion. After at least 10 strokes on the neck and ending with the chin, tap the neck under your jaw line. This will help to tighten the neck muscles and reduce a flabby chin area.     ~ Move to the ears next. Many people miss the ears but a simple massage will help the skin stay soft and won't wrinkle faster than the rest of your face and neck.Repeat these exer[...]

Skin Tightening - Tips to Tighten Loose Skin

Mon, 31 Oct 2016 02:10:00 +0000

Top Tips to Tighten Loose SkinLoose skin is a frequent problem for anyone that has ever lost a lot of weight, had a baby, that is a smoker or through the general aging process when gravity begins to take it's toll on the body and the skin.Loose skin is also a result of a loss of skin elasticity that comes from sun exposure, lack of hydration, improper diet, lack of exercise and a lack of proper skin care. Use our top tips to tighten loose skin.     You've probably seen the show The Biggest Loser and those contestants enter the show extremely overweight with loose skin and after losing weight they are much more tone and firm so it is possible and you can tighten loose skin and restore skin elasticity too. Skin doesn't suddenly become loose and saggy; it takes a while to develop loose skin so keep this in mind as you take measures to tighten loose skin. It could take anywhere from one month for some to six months and longer for others.It is possible to obtain skin tightening by improving the skin elasticity also known as skin turgor with a few easy tips that you can add to your daily routine.Top Six Tips to Tighten Loose SkinAmazon's Choice for WeightsExercise - Exercise is probably the number one area of importance when it comes to skin tightening. Adding at least 30 minutes of daily exercise can help to tone and tighten loose skin by replacing fat with muscle. Add walking, some form of aerobics and simple weight lifting to tighten loose skin that will help you lose weight at the same time as an added bonus. Add any weights such as this large selection to get the most of your workouts and to see faster results to tighten skin.  Facial Exercises - Facial exercises can also be added such as tapping on the neck with the back of the fingers for several minutes twice a day and turning the head to the side and looking upward towards the sky to stretch the neck and then returning the head to the center of body and repeating 30 times and then repeating on the other side. Try laying on the bed with your head lightly hanging over the edge while you do neck exercises to fight the effects of gravity or use one of my favorite items- an inversion table.   Hydration  Tighten loose skin by adding plenty of water daily to your diet. Lack of hydration starts in our internal organs and is ultimately visible on our skin with dry, saggy skin. The body is made mostly of water and we lose water daily through exercise and perspiration. Drink at least 6-8 glasses of water daily and notice an improvement in skin tightening as well as many other health benefits that come from hydrating the body.   Diet  You've heard that we are what we eat and this is absolutely true and affects the amount of skin tightening that our skin will have. Add lean protein to each meal to help to build muscle as well as fresh fruits and fresh vegetables that contain valuable vitamins, antioxidants and water to the organs. I've recently added protein powder to my diet to increase the amount of muscle building proteins I get each day too. It really helps and you'll see the difference. The skin is the largest organ of the body and needs more nutrition to tighten loose skin.  Sun protection  Wear a sunscreen daily with an spf level of 30 to reduce the effects of drying and shrinking or sagging of the skin. For more sun protection and to help the skin add sunglasses and a hat and always wear protective clothing if you'll be in the sun for extended amounts of time or gloves in the winter. Always reapply sunscreen every hour for the best results. Winter is also a time that sunscreen is needed since the sun's rays are less potent but, still there and able to damage skin.   S[...]

How to Cleanse Colon Naturally with Detox for Radiant Skin

Fri, 23 Sep 2016 03:14:00 +0000

Colon Cleansing is Good for the Body and SkinFor clear radiant skin & overall health. Follow these 7 Steps to Detox the ColonStart Your Daily Detox This Week for Body and Skin Health      One way to get radiant skin is to clean your body from free radicals and toxins that could be one cause of skin problems. If you're feeling tired, irritable, sluggish, foggy headed, bloated, fatigued and listless and can't seem to get radiant skin due to pimples, blackheads, whiteheads, acne or other skin problems, it could very well be time to clean out the colon.      Toxins and free radicals that cause skin and health problems build up in the colon and if not properly cleaned regularly, mucous builds up allowing bacteria and parasites to form. This results in dry skin, skin rashes, pimples, acne, bloating, gas and increased weight gain as well as more severe digestive diseases, allergies, sleep disturbances, obesity and even cancers. We have about 25 feet of intestines that can store a lot of bowel and toxins. If you don't move your bowels at least twice a day, you'll benefit from a colon cleanse of detox and help clear out those intestines. Follow these 7 steps to get a thorough natural colon cleansing and stay healthier for longer with radiant skin well into your aging years. Difficulty: Moderately Easy   Start a Natural Colon Cleansing Today! Some people recommend simply drinking clear liquids for a few days to detox the body. I prefer to add healthy nutrition since our bodies do a lot of work in a day and need healthy calories for energy so this is the method I prefer using. Try it and see for yourself if you don't feel better than you do today!       Step 1: Cleanse and detox the colon     To cleanse the colon naturally, plan to change your eating habits for at least one full week. Symptoms of dry skin, skin rashes, bloating, gas, irritability, sluggishness and increased weight gain can be caused by a build up of mucous and waste matter in the large intestine due to an improper diet of fried, greasy, high fat foods. Pick a date to get ready for a colon cleansing and buy your supplies.Step 2 : Include foods that will cleanse colon naturally     Avoid eating fatty foods, heavy foods, foods high in acid such as sauces, processed foods and refined sugars and sodas for one full week. Instead of those options, choose a diet high in fiber with oats, fish and lean proteins, nuts, beans, whole grains, fresh fruits and fresh vegetables. This diet will encourage freer movement of the bowels and assist to cleanse colon naturally with detoxification. If you aren't moving your bowels at least once a day, start a detox soon. The longer you wait, the more harm your body is experiencing. You'll start to feel better after only one day of healthier eating and just wait until you keep doing it!Step 3: Drink plenty of waterBrita Water Filter Pitcher image by Amazon     Plan to drink 10-16 8 oz. glasses of water a day to properly cleanse and detoxify the colon by using this flushing out the system method. Use filtered water or add fresh fruit to flavor the water if you don't like the taste of water. Many people don't drink enough water because of the taste of tap water. This simple Brita Water Pitcher with filter is inexpensive and will remove the sulfur and other bad taste of tap water while allowing you to make sure to drink that full pitcher of water per day. Water is an optimum way to flush the body of toxins as well as to reduce the symptoms of constipation, bloating and will[...]

Top Ways to Exfoliate the Face

Facial Exfoliation Methods for Soft and Radiant SkinTop Ways to Exfoliate the Face : Pretika Facial Brush image by AmazonThere are several options to choose from when looking at how to exfoliate the facial skin. Read these top methods to exfoliate the face to find the one that suits you best. What is Facial Exfoliation and Do You Really Need It?Exfoliation is the process of removing dry, dead skin cells and offers several benefits when done as part of the routine skin care regime:* It smooths out the surface of the skin.* It removes dryness patches or flaking of the skin.* Exfoliation helps to create softer skin with a more even texture.* Reduces a dull appearance that can make us look tired.* Products applied afterwards go on more smoothly and evenly.* Facial Exfoliation can help to get rid of blemishes such as whiteheads or blackheads.     For years working as a skin care and makeup artist, I was often asked lots of questions about exfoliating the face for smooth and softer skin, reducing fine lines and wrinkles and how to get rid of pimples and blackheads.Oftentimes, I'd find that many people were using simply their hands to clean the face and weren't seeing the results they wanted. I started teaching the following exfoliation methods to my clients and hope you'll find at least one of these easy ways to incorporate into your routine skin care regime that will work for you to get smoother, softer, cleaner, blemish free skin with a glowing complexion.Exfoliation helps to provide clear, smooth skin at every age!           Big Fans of Routine Facial Exfoliation! Me, my sister, niece and beautiful Mom                                     Image by Radiantskinexpertadvice.comAdd a textured washcloth to exfoliate the faceDeluxe Washcloth 100% Cotton 10 Piece Set This is the simplest and easiest method that anyone can do to exfoliate the skin gently. It's so much better than your smooth hands to begin the process of getting rid of the top dead layer of skin. While it won't provide a deep cleansing of the pores or below the first layer of skin, it will help to remove dirt and cleansers better than the hands alone.A 100% cotton washcloth is something you can use every time you wash your face (hopefully at least every morning and every evening). If you're not used to using a washcloth, do try it and see for yourself what a difference it makes in smoothing out the texture and small blemishes of the skin.Some people like using a facial loofah, I just find them too harsh on skin and so not my favorite option when there are others that work better in my experience.Deep Clean the Pores for Glowing SkinSource: amazonAdd a Gentle Facial ScrubA facial scrub is meant as a facial exfoliant.

Top Seven Botox Treatments

Sun, 04 Sep 2016 23:46:00 +0000

  Top Seven Botox Treatments          You may be thinking of getting a Botox treatment and wonder what the most popular areas of the body that most people want to correct or change with a cosmetic procedure. This article will provide the Botox information on the top seven Botox treatments to help you know what others are getting done and what you may want to investigate yourself. Scroll down to find Botox Alternatives Worth a Try.      Most Popular Problem Areas that Botox is Used for:     Crow's Feet – Crow's Feet are those little, or not so little, lines and wrinkles that form along the sides of the eyes and can be as few as one or two to many lines that start at the edge of the outside of the eye and extending toward the hairline. They can be very thin and not so noticeable lines or deep lines that look even larger or deeper during facial expressions and speaking. Many men and women get these types of wrinkles in the skin from smiling or frowning and laughing often. Crow's feet are also due to a lack of eye protection from the sun or from a lack of proper skin care and attention to this delicate area of the face as well as from the normal aging process.     Forehead Wrinkles – another popular area for Botox treatments is the forehead which typically gets deep lines and wrinkles from facial expressions, frowning, squinting and on people that talk with their eyes a lot. Forehead wrinkles also occur from sun exposure, lack of moisturizing and improper sun protection of the face. They can be small, thin lines that are just between the eyes or move all the way to the top of the forehead near the hairline. People that choose not to or are unable to hide their forehead with hair often obtain Botox treatments as an alternative.     Lips– fuller lips are considered sexy, luscious, kissable and desirable and many women look to Botox treatments to obtain a plump and larger lip getting inspiration from many celebrities, such as Angelina Jolie, Jessica Alba, Eva Longoria, Scarlett Johansson, Jessica Simpson, Beyonce and so many others that have naturally plump lips... or do they?  Many celebrities have a larger and fuller lip that is appealing to many that want to emulate the look of luscious lips through Botox when mother nature hasn't provided them. Fuller plump lips are enhanced even further with colorful, plumping lipsticks and lip glosses as well as they are one of the first areas we see on someone and they see on us when we speak.     Brow Lift – a brow lift is popular as a Botox treatment with women wanting to enhance their eyes and to get a brighter and more open eye, for women with small eyes or those with droopy eye lids. Lifting the brow through Botox is done by relaxing the muscles around the eye to reduce lines and wrinkles as well.     Under Eye Bags and Puffy Eyes – puffy eyes or under eye bags are a problem for both men and women and can make the entire face look older than it is. The skin all around the eyes is the thinnest and most delicate skin on the body and can easily become wrinkled, puffy and loose from the sun, nutrition, lack of sleep, improper skin care, heredity, medications and the aging process making Botox treatment a popular option for people in this category.     Drooping Eye Lids – sagging or drooping eye lids can be caused by lack of sun protection to the eyes as well as from medications and an improper diet an[...]

How to Decide To Use Botox - Get the Facts

Sun, 04 Sep 2016 23:23:00 +0000

How to Decide To Use Botox - Bacterium Clostridium Botulinum Botox Cell Phone Cover Case     The popular celebrity glamour drug known as Botox has become increasingly even more popular among the general public as more men and women search for ways to get a face lift, to tighten lines and wrinkles, widen the eyes, reduce puffy eyes and ultimately look younger. Many people get botox treatments under the eyes to remove bags and drooping eyes and botox treatments for lips for larger fuller lips.       According to the Center for Disease Control* (CDC), Botox is a poisonous bacteria (bacterium clostridium botulinum) found in the soil and diluted for use on the human skin. The FDA has approved botox as a dermal filler to be used for lines and wrinkles when used professionally and further research continues all the time for potential side effects and complications. Botox is also used to treat severe headaches.     Before diving into these poisonous injections, learn and understand what exactly it is, the cost of botox injections and the potential side effects and complications of botox.Six Botox Facts You Need to Know Before You Use Botox:ñ   1. First, know that Botox (TM) is also known as bacterium clostridium botulinum. It is a natural bacteria/poison from the soil found in decomposing food that has been used to relax lines and wrinkles as a filler to tighten and firm the skin. In a diluted state, many physicians concur that botox treatments are safe. Each person must decide for themselves if the benefits of getting botox treatments outweighs the risks. Botox must be injected by a specialized botox dr to reduce the side effects and complications, use authentic botox and also to keep it a sterilized procedure.2.Botox (TM) comes from the botulinum otherwise known as the botulism toxin. The definition of a toxin is a poison. This particular toxin is forty million times more powerful than cyanide or the same ingredient used in rat poison.3.Realize that the side effects of botox can be difficulty swallowing or breathing (especially for patients with neuromuscular difficulties), headaches, eye lid drooping, dry eyes, double vision, bruising and swelling, as well as an unnatural appearance to the face reducing the ability of the facial muscles to move freely with expression. This produces an almost plastic or fake appearance to the face that is unnatural and very unbecoming on most people that use botox over an extended period of time.4.Know the cost of Botox (TM) treatments can start at $450 for each treatment and require many treatments until the optimal look is achieved. There can also be increased costs associated with follow-up visits or for any problems from side effects that require additional treatments. 5.Before deciding on Botox (TM) treatments, remember that everything that gets put on or into the skin is absorbed into the bloodstream so that those botox treatments end up inside your body and the research will continue to find out how botox will eventually affect more of the body.6.Put it all together: Discuss botox treatments with your physician and make sure to discuss the pros and cons of injections as well as long term results. Use knowledge and common sense to make the best choices in health and wellness and to look and feel your best before you choose botox to firm and tighten your skin.The Truth About Botox InjectionsTips & Warnings·There are natural botanical alternatives to Botox which are just as effective although may[...]
