Remove Dark Circles

1. Cold cucumber slices

Cucumbers contain antioxidants that can reduce puffiness around the eyes. As a natural astringent and a coolant, cucumber causes the skin tissues to contract, making dark circles less prominent. Place finely cut cucumber slices on each eyelid. Leave it on for 5 minutes and rinse.

2. Cold tea bags

The caffeine present in tea bags shrinks blood vessels and reduces fluid retention in tissues making the skin around your eyes look vibrant and glowing. Cold tea bags cause skin tissues to shrink, leaving your eyes looking less puffy. Take two already soaked tea bags and refrigerate for 10 minutes. Remove and place them on each eye for 5 -10 minutes. Rinse with cold water and repeat 1-3 times a day to see effective results.

3. Mint leaves

Mint leaves contain menthol that improves blood circulation and soothes and rejuvenates skin. It is natural astringent and contracts the blood vessels around the eyes, reducing the blue tint. The vitamin C in mint makes the skin around the eyes appear brighter. Make your own

Now simply apply it on your skin and leave it for ten to fifteen minutes. This pack would give a nice glow to your skin and rejuvenate it by removing dead skin cells.

For Oily Skin

Yogurt has amazing qualities and this makes it the perfect ingredient for any face mask. It hydrates your skin and leaves a glow which lasts for days to come.

Great Makeup

1. Avoid wearing too much

Makeup is meant to enhance features not bring negative attention to you. That’s what wearing too much makeup will do; it will bring you unwanted attention. Don’t wear too much of anything such as:

1. Eyeliner: dark, thick eyeliner will make you look overdone and will ruin the rest of your makeup.

2. Mascara: too much mascara looks fake and will flake. It looks especially bad if worn with thick eyeliner or dark blue eye eye shadow.

3. Foundation: Make sure your foundation is the same color as your skin. Foundation is meant to protect and give the face a smooth look. The magic word is blend.

4. Powder: The same holds true for powder – not too much. Also, be sure to blend your makeup so there are no obvious lines.

2. Lips

Apply lip liner to completely cover the lips, add color and your lipstick will stay on much longer. Make sure your lip liner doesn’t show. Also, your lip color should match your skin tone; wear cool colors if you have cool coloring and warm colors if you have warm coloring. If you

Winter Skin Care

Indoor heating is abusive for the skin. It pulls the moisture out of the air, which is dehydrating. The older one gets, the drier the skin gets. The glands in skin get smaller and begin vanishing. This diminishes their ability to hydrate. The consequence is drier skin.

Using nutrient-rich moisturizing cream is the most important remedy for winter-beaten skin. To reduce the appearance of existing fine lines and wrinkles while evening out natural skin tones to have a smoother, softer, younger looking, more radiant complexion, apply your moisturizing creams three times a day.

You should also include the following beneficial skin-pampering techniques:

Humidify. When the heat is on, replace lost indoor moisture by running a humidifier in the house.

Use steam rather than sauna. At the gym or spa, instead of the dry-and-drying-sauna, use the steam room. Before steaming, apply a thin layer of Vitamin E oil. Your skin will come out radiant and amazingly soft.

Pamper fingers and toes. Don’t forget these extremities, which take a particularly harsh beating in bitter climates. To bring them back to smoothness, soak feet and hands in warm water mixed with lemon juice and Vitamin E

Diet Your Skin Needs

Different skin needs different type of diet. But there are few general rules for healthy skin which are universal for everyone.

a) Water, the magical drink, acts as the best medicine for the skin. It not only refreshes you and make your skin glow but also purifies your body which makes the body run most effectively. Read the benefits of water

b) Vitamins are as essential to skin as oxygen to body. Some vitamins do a world of good to your skin. These vitamins are mandatory for glowing and healthy skin.

List of Vitamins essential for your glowing skin and their sources (natural):

1) Vitamin C : It can be easily found in all citric fruits like orange etc.

Nail Care System

1. Healthy looking fingernails should be smooth, curved, void of any spotting, and should not have any hollows or ridges.

2. Make sure your fingernails are completely dry before you file them.

3. Shape your nails with a fine emery board, do not use any type of metal file.

4. When filing, try to keep the shape of your fingernails oval not pointed, thus making the nails less susceptible to breakage.

5. The cuticle acts as a seal between the finger and the nail. Gently exfoliating the dry, rough, cuticle skin layers by actually sloughing off the dead outer layers exposes new and vibrant skin.

6. This new healthy skin protects the nails matrix which is the growth center of the nail and should be treated with care.

7. Don’t over manicure your cuticles. Over-grooming the cuticle damages the cuticle and causes it to thicken and overgrow.

8. Never use metal or sharp instruments on your cuticles.

9. Wear rubber gloves if your hands are going to be immersed in water for any length of time. Extensive periods in water can dry out the fingernails making them brittle.

Apply Your Makeup

FOUNDATION: After Cleansing, Toning and Moisturizing your face apply a small amount of foundation to the tip of your index finger, dot on forehead, nose, cheeks and chin then blend in an upward and outward motion without leaving a line. Be sure to apply foundation over your eyelids and blend without leaving a line. Glance in the mirror to ensure there’s no line. You can use a concealer to cover imperfections such as blemishes and dark spots. You can use our NATU-CLEAR to remove dark spots, even skin tone and skin discoloration.

TRANSLUCENT POWDER: Using a Powder Brush apply Translucent Powder in a downward motion for a smooth finish. Translucent Powder helps eye makeup and blush to go on smoother and blend better. It also keeps your face looking fresh and your Makeup will last longer.

EYE MAKEUP: Starting at your lash line, apply your Base Color first, then apply your crease color in the crease area. Apply your Highlight Color in the highlight color area, below the brow bone. Finally, blend the colors with a cotton ball or your fingertip to remove any obvious line. If the colors are too bright tone them down with

Sunblock

Sunblock is the best preventative of aging skin you can buy in a bottle. It won’t make you look younger in a few applications, you need to use it regularly – like every day – but over time it will make a tremendous difference to the appearance of your skin.

Sunblock can be found as lotion, gel, roll on, or spray. If you’re on a tight budget you can usually buy a bottle for just a few dollars from a supermarket or drugstore. Test it on an inconspicuous part of you first in case you have an allergy to it! This is more important for the cheaper brands.

Use sunblock even if its cloudy outside. Ultraviolet (UV) rays can penetrate clouds by up to 80%, yes even if its raining. If you’re driving, UV rays can penetrate glass, they can also be reflected off glass or water.

And don’t just use sunblock on your face. Put it on your hands, feet, arms or whatever bits of you that are not covered up. This is not just for appearances, sunblock can prevent potentially fatal skin cancers and melanomas from developing.

Even if you have never

Look Younger

As we take a look at nature and the lifestyles of earlier cultures, we do not find the problems of disease, sickness or excess weight that occur in our modern society. This should prompt us to see what these cultures are doing that has proven to work throughout time. For example, I try to live a more natural lifestyle in regards to diet (loads of raw vegetables), activity and exercise, environment, and pure distilled water. I incorporate each of these as much as possible, though not perfectly. Nevertheless, the result is a better quality of life largely free from sickness and disease.

Our SAD (Standard American Diet) of today unfortunately consists of highly processed “foods” that starve the body of nutrition and create difficulties for the digestive system, which results in colon problems. It’s known in the natural health industry that over 90% of all human diseases and sickness are from a congested (constipated) colon. This also accelerates the aging process. Modern science hasn’t and won’t find a break-through drug that will restore your health. But they don’t need to. The solution simply is a more natural lifestyle involving the integration of corrective and preventative measures over

About Perfect Lips

To get it, avoid applying the lip pencil too heavily, which will be difficult to blend and soften into the lipstick. Keeping your mouth closed lightly trace the lip line with the lip pencil so it can barely be seen, but can be used as a guide line.

Hold the brush horizontally to trace along the lip line, and do a little bit at a time, backing up and going over it again. Don’t try to get the whole line in one stroke. The best lip brush is a sable with a slightly tapered edge, not straight one.

This provides more control and a cleaner line.If you are really pressed for time, apply lipstick only on the bottom lip and press your lips together. Then, blend out to the lip line with the edge of a lip brush, not the tip, for a precise line, or use a dampened cotton swab for a soft, natural lip line.

When finished, instead of blotting the lips by biting a tissue, lay the tissue across both lips while your mouth is closed. This will imprint your lips, including the edges of the mouth where lipstick usually bleeds. Perfect!

Hair Care

Have a hair-care routine

Having a fixed period or interval of days in which you wash your hair and oil them helps to keep the hair nourished and healthy. It also prevents them from shedding and other scalp related problems.

Shampoo well

Firstly we must pick up the shampoo that has the right PH balance and is not too acidic in nature as it damages the hair. Also, we can use apple cider vinegar as a pre-shampoo treatment to help add nutrients and have an added shine to hair after they are washed. We should apply the shampoo from the roots to the mid-shaft of the hair. We must strictly avoid silicone, sulphate and alcohol-based shampoo. We must rinse the shampoo with cold water as hot water opens the pores which lead to hair-fall. Never I mean never ever in your whole life brush or tie wet hair this leads to the development of head lease and dandruff. We must not wash our hair regularly and also wrap out with a cotton towel or a t-shirt after we wash them.

Coconut oil

When we need healthy hair coconut oil is our best friend.

Moisturizer Is Essential

Hydrating your skin is key to making your skin look healthy, plumb and glowy. Dry, dehydrated skin not only feels tight and uncomfortable but it’s also more likely to age and wrinkle. Using a moisturizer regularly can help keep fine lines away, and give the appearance of younger skin.

Many moisturizers go beyond hydrating ingredients. They have other active ingredients to perk tired skin and make it look plumper and younger. For example, an evening moisturizer may contain Vitamin A derivatives to help skin texture and tone. A morning one could include Vitamin C and other antioxidants to perk up skin and fight pollution damage.

A typical moisturizer will also seal any previous treatment cosmetic you have applied to your skin. It acts as the finishing element of your beauty routine, ensuring that the active skincare toners and serums you just applied have time to work.

Most people who say they don’t like moisturizer are actually using one without knowing. Not all moisturizers are creams! A refreshing hydrating gel or a few drops of marula oil after your toner are have the same function as cream moisturizers.

Modern cosmetic brands invest a lot of

Sugaring Hair Removal

If sugaring hair removal is your choice for getting rid of unwanted body hair, take note of these tips and suggestions for optimum results:

  • To remove the hair by the root it must be at least 1/4 inch or 6 mm long. Longer hair should be trimmed to this length.
  • Hair must be clean and dry before starting hair removal sugaring.
  • Remove all creams and oils, towel dry and then apply talcum powder to ensure the skin is completely dry.
  • Apply the sugaring paste in the direction of the hair growth.
  • When pressing the cotton strip on top of the paste, leave a small section at the end free so it will be easy to hold when pulling back.
  • If using a spatula to apply the paste use the edge not the flat side. This will help ensure a very thin layer is applied.
  • Pull the strip back sharply against the direction of the hair growth. Do not lift the strip up or out away from the skin.
  • Hold the skin firmly with one hand while you pull the strip back sharply with the other hand.
  • Treat small areas at a time when hair removal sugaring on sensitive parts of the body.
  • When heating the paste,

Curly Hair

Different patterns and different types of curls require different nourishment and maintenance routines. The type of curl helps you decide the shampoo the conditioner and the serum you need to use to have frizz-free and shiny hair.

Less is more

It is important for curly hair that which product we use and by how much. The right amount of product is less than you think. Always look before you apply the shampoo and conditioner to hair as the quantity matters.

Have a hair care routine

Having a routine i.e. fixing the days you wash the hair and the time intervals between oiling them help to have nourished and healthy hair as it ensures that the scalp is clean between short intervals of time.

Sleep

We must have an adequate 8hrs. Of sleep, at night it helps our body to repair itself and treat the damages that are happening on a day to day basis. Also or having healthy hair we should sleep on silk pillows as they are softer on hair as compared to normal pillow cases when we toss and turn during our sleep and also be must braid our hair

Pigments

What are the types of pigments that go into the cosmetic industry? Both the inorganic as well as the organic pigments are being used for manufacturing makeup products. The most popularly used inorganic pigments include the iron oxides, chromium oxide, titanium oxide, ultramarines etc. Ultramarines are responsible for making available the metallic hues of blue that are often prevalent in eye makeup. Chromium oxide gives the green hues used in several shades of eye makeup.

Iron oxides are more used in the manufacture of day-time makeup products as it includes pigment yellow, pigment red and other vibrant shades in its fold. Titanium oxide provides the much needed UV shield to some extent and therefore becomes an important ingredient in the manufacture. The solvent resistance and opaqueness of inorganic pigments make them a must include ingredient in the manufacture of makeup products.

Organic pigments on the other hand vary from inorganic pigments from the solubility point of view; they are soluble in a number of solvents. The kind of organic pigments that form the base of raw materials in the cosmetic industry include the likes of Xanthenes, Azo colorants, Triaylmethane and Anthraquinone.

Info of Alpha Hydroxy Acids

Whether glycolic, lactic or arginine is used-they are all still acids! AHAs dissolve the natural moisturizing factor that acts as a glue to hold dead cells in the stratum corneum together.

Acids penetrate into the skin if not properly neutralized and a mixture of baking soda and cool water should always be used by your esthetician or dermatologist as a first rinse mixture to stop the process of exfoliation on your skin, because at this point the treatment has reduced the thickness of the stratum corneum and the skin has now become sensitive.

Clients should be informed that when they use such treatments the skin becomes more sensitive to the sun and should protect their skin with a sunscreen of SPF15 or higher. An esthetician or doctor should advise their clients not to experiment themselves with their skin after an alpha hydroxy treatment when going home for at least 3 days. When using such treatments (glycolic or lactic, etc.)in a series, especially for hyperpigmentation, acne scarring and anti-aging programs. If being done in a professional environment the results can be positive.
