When you Apply Body Lotion

Apply Most Lotions When the Skin is Moist

This is recommended as the ingredients can be able to penetrate better when they are dissolved. But when the fragrant body lotion or secret body lotion is applied on a dry surface it is hard for them to penetrate and doesn’t give desirable results. It doesn’t get shine and glow and may not react as it should be. So keep it moist and use the cream only then.

Warmth is Better

Cold skin is not apt to put any type of product as the ingredients of any cream will not get absorbed properly and make it very oily and sticky making it prone to pimples and acne. So to get rid of this rub a warm towel soaked in a warm water against the skin in order to make it a little moist for any type of product to be applied to it.

A Fine Exfoliation

Exfoliation is the process of removing dead skin so that it becomes smooth, silky and soft because if the uppermost layer of it is too dry and patchy then any active ingredients of any body moisturizer find it difficult to penetrate deeply into the pores and will not be effective. So get off all that dead cells if you really want to have a nice shining skin.

Using Rogaine To Regrow Eyebrows

Rogaine: Why you Definitely Shouldn’t be Using It

One beauty hack which women, in particular, have tried in recent years, involves using the male hair restoration foam branded as Rogaine to regrow eyebrows. Does Rogaine work? In short, yes. Minoxidil, the active component of Rogaine is an antihypertensive vasodilator form of medication. What this means, is that the drug forces blood vessels to dilate. Increased blood flow to hair follicles subsequently results in faster hair growth and thickness.

However, like all drugs, Minoxidil has side effects. In the very worst cases, it can cause heart palpitations and anxiety. More alarmingly, though, many long-term users of Minoxidil hold the drug responsible for rapid skin aging and the development of dark under eye bags and circles. Worse, many users cite these side effects as being permanent. This being the case, do you really want to risk ravaging your skin in order to achieve more voluminous eyebrows?

Natural & Better Cosmetic Alternatives

The good news is that most people use Rogaine simply to promote fast-track eyebrow growth. Providing that people are prepared to wait, they can achieve exactly the same benefits naturally. Alternatively, for those who can’t wait, eyebrow and eyelash growth serums which contain the active ingredient myristoyl pentapeptide-17, are both safe and proven to be effective at promoting faster and more luscious hair growth.

Avoid Toxic Chemicals In Beauty Products

Your beauty products probably look harmless, but the truth is that most of them are filled with chemicals. These products are filled with preservatives that prevent them from getting funky after sitting on store shelves and in your steamy shower. Though rancid shampoo is clearly not your idea of a good time, the frightening truth is that many of these chemicals are fairly untested.

A quick look at the labels on your bottles will show you how few ingredients are easy to recognize. In fact, most products today are filled with chemicals that didn’t exist twenty five years ago. Not only have most of them not been properly studied, there simply hasn’t been enough time to see what their impacts on health will be in the long term.

According to the Worldwatch Institute, there are over 75,000 man made chemicals in the world today that are used for products that come in contact with your skin. Even low levels of exposure to these chemicals can causes damage and irritation, and some of them can build up in your system over time and cause damage to your hormone systems.

Below is a short list of some of the most damage synthetic ingredients in common cosmetic products.

Moisture beads: Sometimes called micro-beads, these tiny sponge-like beads are made of plastic and take thousands of years to break down in the natural environment. Present in over 200 different beauty products, moisture beads are toxic to ingest for humans and wildlife alike.

Triclosan: Because of its antimicrobial properties, triclosan is found in plenty of cleaning products like soap, deodorant and shampoo. Multiple studies have linked triclosan exposure to hormone disruption and thyroid issues.

Parabens: This common ingredient in soaps and shampoos is made up of several distinct chemicals, including ethylparaben, propylparaben, butylparaben, and methylparaben. Not only can parabens disrupt hormone function and cause allergic reactions, they have also been linked to increased risk of breast cancer.

Benzophenone: Though benzophenones make great UV blockers to protect you from the sun, they also disrupt the function of your endocrine system and can lead to eczema on the skin. Studies have shown that exposure to high doses of the lotions and sunscreens that contain these ingredients can increase your risk of developing cancer and reduce your fertility.

Phthalates: Used to add flexibility to plastic products, phthalates are made from phthalic acid and can be found in just about any beauty product with a fragrance. Evidence has shown that phthalates can act as an endocrine disruptor and even cause birth defects in unborn children.

Absorbing The Harm

Toxic chemicals are everywhere in the natural world, so why is it so important to be concerned about cosmetic products? The reason is simple: few other products are put as close to your bloodstream as lotions and makeup.

Your skin is the body’s biggest organ and the primary defense it has to keep foreign materials out of your blood stream. However, skin isn’t a solid barrier. Instead, it is highly permeable and allows chemical substances to enter in and out of your bloodstream. This is why nicotine patches work to control cravings in smokers and why people have relied for centuries on rubbing medicinal herbs on the skin to treat their illnesses. According to studies, skin can adsorb 64% of chemicals applied to it, and the face is even more permeable than that.a

Proper Makeup Brushes

One of the best advantages that you will benefit from if you want to get quality brushes is the fact that you will have the pleasure of using them for many months and even years to come. This is the kind of investment that you make every once in a while. If you were to buy just any brushes that you stumble upon, you will have to get less money out of your pocket, but more often than you can imagine. So, if you buy a set today, in a couple of months you will be required to replace it. This means that you will end up spending more when investing in cheap products. Over time, you will spend even more than you would if you were to purchase a quality brushes set.

Another important advantage that you can benefit from when you buy makeup brushes and eye makeup is the fact that you will have the chance to experience different looks. It is a known fact that the right amount and type of makeup is going to help you achieve the look that you have in mind. If you want a more vintage look, you can do that by using a black eyeliner and nude or white eye shadow.

When talking about more glamorous makeup, you will have to go a bit heavy on eye makeup, lipstick, blush and so on. Interesting enough, you will have the opportunity to match your mood with your makeup. However, you should keep in mind the fact that achieving the perfect look depends on the products and techniques used.
