skincare-skin-type

You can determine your skin types at home.

1. Clean your face with a skin liquid cleanser, then wash and clap dry.  Wait for one hour.

2. Make note where your skin senses “tight.”

3. Pressure a separate piece of facial tissue onto each area of your face: nose, chin, center of cheeks, outer cheeks, center of forehead and outer forehead.

4. Inspect each tissue and look for oily mark or flaky skin residue.

5. See results:

  • If the whole tissue was oily that indicates an oily skin type.
  • If there is oil on only some tissues ( T-zone, which is the center of forehead, nose, chin and center of cheeks)it means you have a combination skin type.
  • Flaky residue on all papers,  without oily marks – or a tight feeling in the skin shows a dry skin type.
  • No oil and no flaky on any parts of the cosmetic tissue indicates a normal skin type.

6 Secret Skin Slayers

So you’re doing everything you can to clear your skin, but you’re still breaking out. You’ve tried everything from at-home remedies (toothpaste, Visine, baking soda) to prescription strength acne medication but it’s still not working. Frustration City, population: you. Well, here’s a few bad guys you might be able to blame.

Your Hands

Touching your face throughout the day might seem harmless or even second nature, but is a huge no-no. Our hands come in contact with a huge amount of bacteria that can easily be transferred onto our very susceptible facial skin just by touching it. Think about it: our hands and fingers come in contact every day with gas station handles, ATM pin pads, door handles, bathroom knobs, and tons of other stuff laden with grossness. Do yourself a favor and keep your hands off your face.

Cell or Landline Phones

I once worked at a makeup counter in a huge department store and I noticed every girl at my counter had nasty breakouts on the left side of her face. The culprit: the counter’s telephone, which I took to wiping down with alcohol every night when I closed (the very first time I did it, the cloth was black from the grime and dirt). Same goes for your cell phone: it comes in contact with who-knows-what at the bottom of your purse, in your car, on restaurant tables, your hands!!, and with old makeup when you put it on your face. Wipe it down with toner or astringent now and again – it will work wonders.

Find your basic makeup essentials to create a radient – looking complexion and then experiment with deifferent colors, textures and cosmetics items to accentuate your features and enhance your face. Improving your appearence will boost your confidence and self esteem.

How to Apply Make up

Because of the difficulties in finding the right foundation color, some makeup experts believe that Brown women should use more than one foundation shade by blending two shades together or by applying different shades to different areas of the face (one shade on the T-zone area and another on forehead, cheeks, and jaw, for example).

Some women prefer to have their foundations custom-blended. In my opinion, it’s often too difficult for women to blend makeup on their own and get consistent color.

Custom blending, like that offered by companies like Prescriptives, is a tremendous advance for Brown women because you can leave the store with one bottle that is made just for you.

However, the downside is higher cost. If you have not been able to find a color that suits you on your own, consult a cosmetics counter or makeup artist for expert advice.

Steps of Aplying Makeup – Some Makeup Tips

The process of putting on makeup must always start with clean skin.

There is no point in putting makeup on skin that already has yester day’s makeup on it-first because you will only clog up your pores and hurt your skin, and second because the makeup will cake and blotch and may look strange and unflattering on last night’s leftovers.

So, please, don’t carry your face over from day to day.

Makeup Removing Tips To Keep Your Skin Healthy


For those who regularly use makeup in their daily routine, removing makeup can become very tough and also lazy process.

But, if you really want to maintain healthy and damage free skin, it is very essential for you to remove makeup at nights, before going to bed to maintain healthy skin.

When you don’t remove makeup during nights, there are more chances for the chemicals present in your makeup products to enter deep into your pores. As a result, you can experience various skin problems.

Usually, there are two types of makeup, oily and non-oily. Oily type includes lipstick, mascara and other liquid makeup. On the other hand, non-oily includes blushes, eye shadows and other powdered makeup.

Each type requires specific method in the removal process. These are certain important points that you have to remember while removing makeup at nights.

1. First of all, remove your eye makeup. Baby shampoo is an excellent way to remove eye shadows and mascara that are resistant to many other kinds of makeup removers. If you use waterproof mascara, it is difficult to remove as it is specially designed for staying power. So, take few drops of baby shampoo on a cotton ball and gently use it to remove your eye makeup.

2. Never use any type of cleanser to remove your eye makeup. Always keep in mind that your eye area is very sensitive and also delicate. So, don’t hurt it in anyway.

3. Before applying any type of facial cleanser, gently splash your face with warm water. This will mainly help to open the pores of your skin and allows you to eliminate the dirt from the pores of your skin. Warm water allows your cleanser to form lather.

4. Cleansing your face should also include your neck and back area of your ears. This is because of the reason that often your body oils accumulates in these particular areas and clog the pores of your skin.

5. Instead of using soap for cleansing your face, pick a cleanser that suits to your skin type. Most of the soaps that are available in the market mainly consist of harsh chemicals that can rob the natural moisture from your skin and makes your skin dry. So, try to use better cleanser, manufactured by branded companies.

6. Apply a natural face mask once or twice in a week. This can greatly help you to exfoliate the dead skin cells present on your skin and keep your skin healthy.

Wear environmental cream SPF 15 protects facial skin against the elements, Moisture Stick comforts winter-chapped lips. Note: Your skin care system may need adjusting; see your dermatologist.

contouring: The use of makeup to create or enhance shape. Because light shades bring features forward, and darks recede, eyes can be dramatically sculpted. Face shape can be modified with blusher colour and blusher placement.

exfoliation: Looks-renewal process that helps skin shed its top layer of dead, dry flakes. Improves the look and feel of every skin. Unclogs pores. Makes skin more receptive to moisturizer. Exfoliation can be chemical using salicylic acid or manual such as grainy scrubs. Different types perform different functions.
