Beauty Tips: Beautification While You Sleep

As Tyra Banks has always said, the best arsenal in your beauty kit is an 8 hours of sleep, but we can take that to the next level with some adjustments on our beauty night rituals. Here are some tricks that you may want to apply before you go to bed!

THE BED IS A NO MAKE-UP ZONE

Beauty experts cannot stress this enough! Even if your make up is labeled as organic or mineral, you have to cleanse your face before you go to bed. If this is overlooked, dirt and bacteria will accumulate on your pillow and face. Soon enough, you will have a lot of blackheads, whiteheads and even pimples!

Try EI Solutions Perfect Finish Cleansing Oil. It is made in USA and perfectly removes make-up and impurities from your face and eyes. It also has enhanced botanical extracts with Jojoba Oil, Squaline and Vitamin E to soothe and nourish dry and damaged skin.

The reason that this product is also perfect for your nightcap is that it does not leave any residue at all. This means that it will be fully absorbed by your skin and will not stay with your pillow covers which can become a home for bacteria that will cause breakouts on your skin. However, it is good to note to give at least 10 minutes of absorption time before you go to bed, to really make sure that it’s all in your face and not on your pillow. (Another tip would be replacing your pillow cases twice a week, if you are heavy on make-up or 1 a week if not.) Read the rest of this entry »

Beauty News Updates: Determine What Type of Massage is Right for You

The following is information and news coming from the most recent publication of Medesthetics Magazine (November/December 2006 issue) that I feel is useful to those in the skin care profession as well as the public using skin care products.

Hydroquinone Alert

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration is reversing its stance on hydroquinone. In September 2006, it issued notice of a proposed rule that would make it illegal to use the skin-bleaching drug in over-the-counter preparations.

The action is based on new data on the incidence of ochronosis (bluish black discoloration of tissue)caused by hydroquinone use and the potential carcinogenic risk from the drug. The FDA intends to consider all skin-bleaching drug products, whether currently marketed on a prescriptoin or OTC basis, as new drugs requiring an approved new drug application for continued marketing.

Techniques used: Kneading, stroking, rubbing, gliding, tapping and shaking. Read the rest of this entry »

Does Your Daughter Feel Beautiful?

My daughter Ellah, and her friend Ella (both 9), danced with abandon at the Goddess Crafts Faire this weekend. The belly dancers and musicians on stage were an inspiration: each elaborately dressed and decorated, these women were of all sizes and shapes: ample, curvy, skinny, and a stunning pregnant belly-dancer! My daughter and her friend danced so freely, so un-self-consciously that it brought tears to
my eyes…

What encouraged such freedom?
I believe the answer lies in MODELING. The women on stage were so care-free in their dance, each representing a completely different type of beauty. The media, both written and electronic, tries to impose on us, and imprint on our girls’ impressionable minds, the “one and only” beauty standard: skinny, boyish, and unfeminine… As a result, girls around the world starve themselves, and develop eating disorders to achieve this ideal, so unnatural to women’s bodies.

When I got up to dance at the Faire, I was moved by my instinct, as well as my mind: the music awakened a rhythm in me, and I felt compelled to move. No one else was dancing, though… I became aware that by getting up and dancing, I would be giving the girls permission to do the same! And so they did: not a moment passed and both Ellah and Ella were by my side, letting the rhythm move them. Read the rest of this entry »
