Best Cure For A Zit

pimple

Sometimes we can spend a ton of money on products for pimples and they seem to only dry out the top layer of skin and still leave the pimple. I’ve always said the old-fashioned remedies are the best and this one I’ve done myself and is totally amazing and the best cure for the occasional zit. This is for the random pimple not acne. Good old-fashioned honey.

Put a dab of honey on a Bandaid before going to bed and watch what happens in the morning! Amazing.

Men and Women Sick of Ingrown Hairs?

Ingrown hairs are the hardest thing to remove without destroying your skin by squeezing and trying to tweeze them out. Shaving and waxing are usually the culprit. Dead skin piles up around the hair follicle causing the hair to get trapped causing these nasty bumps called ingrown hairs.

Men usually get ingrown hairs on the the neckline and face.

Women tend to get them in the bikini area and other places that they have  waxed.

Use a scrub and moisturize the skin everyday to prevent ingrown hairs. Make sure you use a scrub designed specifically for the face or the body.

If you have an ingrown hair, use a dab of scrub on a clean toothbrush, going gently back and forth over the area to loosen dead skin and it will make it easier to release the hair.

 

I think Tend Skin this is one of the best products on the market to combat the problem of ingrown hairs. If you are diligent with this product night and day, use a scrub and a moisturizer, then it will only take a day or two to release that hair.

Do I Really Need Separate Day and Night Creams?

 

s78Do you really need separate day and night creams? The answer is yes! Day creams provide a barrier to moisture loss, protect against sun and environmental damage, and work in tandem with your make-up. The role of a night cream is different.

s99

Richer in texture, a night cream usually contains higher concentrations of active ingredients designed to repair the skin while you sleep and a day cream won’t give you that full replenishing benefit for night time.

Dry Chapped Hands

s445

We all know as soon as the cold weather comes our hands take a beating. Being a hairdresser, my hands are always chapped and dry as a bone. My cure-all in these winter months for dry chapped hands is using a salt scrub followed by an intense moisturizer.

When your hands are dry and chapped the main goal is to slough off all those dead skin cells.  A salt scrub is a cleansing, exfoliating product of basically salt and oil that will make your hands (and body) softer and healthier. Be careful if you are using a product such as this in the shower, the oil can make your shower very slick and slippery.

Salt scrubs generally run around thirty dollars but there are many homemade recipes to make your own. There are three ingredients in making your own salt scrubs, sea salt, almond oil and a few drops of essential oils.  If you tend to have sensitive skin you can replace the salt for sugar.

So, if you have dry chapped hands and want them silky smooth you might want to try this.

The Right Makeup For Your Shaped Eye

eyes 4CLOSE-SET EYES

To create the illusion of more space between the eye, attention must be away from the center. To achieve this, apply a light eye shadow from the inner corner to the iris and darker shadow from the iris out toward the edges, blending well.  Eyeliner must be drawn as close to the lash line as possible, from the outer edge of the iris to the outer corners of the top and bottom lash lines and smudge slightly.

eyes wideset

WIDE-SET EYES

To make eyes look closer together, apply a dark liner on the inner corners of the eye and blend.  Eye shadow should be applied starting at the inner corner of the eye, but let it fade out before the outer edges.

eye deepset

DEEP-SET EYES

Light colors come forward, and dark colors recede. To bring eyes forward, sweep a light shade of eye shadow on the lids from lashes to the brow.  Don’t use too much it should barely look there.

eye round

ROUND EYES

To lengthen the eye, line the outer two-thirds of your upper and lower lash lines and join the lines at the outer corners turning up just a tiny bit. Apply mascara to the outer lashes only.

eyes droopy 4

DROOPY EYES

Line the top lid along the lash line pulling up slightly at the outer corners. Apply eye shadow on the top of the line or smudge it to look softer.

eye narrow 2

NARROW EYES

To make eyes look more open, curl lashes with an eyelash curler and apply mascara first to middle lashes, then apply it on the diagonal.

The best way to test lipstick colors is on the inside of the fingertips instead of on the back of your hand.  The color on the inside of your fingertips is the most like the lips, and will give you a better idea of how the color will look on your lips.

Eyebrow Shapes

brow

There are five facial shapes, oval, round, long, square, heart and diamond.  Each facial shape has an eyebrow shape that looks best on them.

The correct eyebrow shape can flatter a facial shape and minimize a particular feature with the exception of the oval face.  Eyebrow shape plays no role in making the face appear oval because it’s already oval.

oval1

OVAL: An oval face is considered the ideal face shape.  A soft angled brow is the perfect eyebrow shape.

diamond1

DIAMOND: A curved brow softens the angles of a diamond face shape and makes the widest portion of the face appear less wide.

heart1

HEART: A low arch round eyebrow shape creates a natural look.  A high arch round eyebrow shape adds length to a shorter heart shape face. The curve of the brow also creates the heart like look of the face.

square1

SQUARE: Angled eyebrow shapes create balance.  The thicker stronger color and shape balances a heavier jawline.  A defined peak at the top of the brow makes the brow appear stronger.

long

LONG: A flat straight horizontal brow shape line makes a long face appear shorter.

round

ROUND: Creating as high an arch as possible makes the face less round by making the face longer.
