What Are You Putting on

You naively wear your favorite makeup hoping to make yourself more attractive with no notion of the hazardous ingredients lurking in your preferred brand of makeup. These typical personal makeup ingredients are wreaking havoc on your organ tissues and hormones. They're creating all sorts of disturbances that eventually lead to debilitating illness such as kidney damage, neurological damage, cancer and breathing disturbances.

Yes, just as you read packaged food ingredients to make sure they are wholesome and nutritious, you must also be vigilant when sorting out the finest makeup ingredients for your skin, given your skin absorbs into your bloodstream everything you put on it. Your skin is like another tongue. Your health depends on you putting the best ingredients on your skin.

First Check Makeup Ingredients

The culprits to watch out for that are known to irritate skin, cause cancer and impair immune systems are alpha hydroxyl acids, formaldehyde, coal tar, mineral oil, talc, silica, sodium lauryl sulfate, benzene, propylene glycol and even ingredients popular in perfume brands.

You want to feel valued and make yourself more attractive without compromising your health. So, it is essential to sort the nasty ingredients lurking in your makeup. It's better to use skin-friendly products instead.

Using wholesome, natural oils to plump up and moisturize your skin such as olive oil and organic coconut oil is better than imitation skin moisturizing brands that are usually extremely expensive and toxic. Even the common soaps that claim to cleanse your skin have perfumes and deodorants that clog pores, and prevent skin from breathing.

If It's Not Edible, Don't Put It On Your Skin

Remember, your skin is an organ of elimination; it's meant to sweat and elegantly remove toxins circulating in your bloodstream. When this process is disrupted, the toxins inescapably build up inside you, start to change and accumulate in your fatty tissues. Over time, your immune system breaks down as you continue to use these dangerous products and makeup goodies.

A number of organic and natural skin care companies are aware of these skin-care dangers lurking in popular products and makeup woes. They are making it their quest to produce more skin-friendly products and inoffensive makeup. Sort these beauty companies out by requesting samples and by researching the ingredients to make sure their products agree with your skin type, and unique biochemistry.

This may sound like a lot of work, but your health depends on you using the top skin care products available. You'll look your best when you continually use edible products on your skin. Your skin will age less over time and maintain a healthy glow.

If this is not feasible, then make sure your skin care products are not carcinogenic or hormone disrupting. This includes the shampoos and hair coloring products you regularly use, too.

You would not ever think of eating an alpha hydroxyl acid, formaldehyde, coal tar, mineral oil, talc, silica, sodium lauryl sulfate, benzene, propylene glycol and perfume. Why would you have your skin absorb these poisons into your bloodstream?

Look Elegant Naturally

Truthfully, makeup is not what defines you! You can look gorgeous without it, for sure, once you feel positive about your appearance. The first thing to look stunning is to have great hygiene, brush and floss your teeth in the morning, take a shower, comb your hair and put on trendy clothes. Make sure you match your outfit and dress it with cool accessories, and wear good-quality shoes.

  • Another matter is to cut back, shape and buff your nails. Remember, to push back your cuticles as well. Pretty hands and feet say a lot about you and make you look more attractive.
  • Every two weeks or so, you can prepare a mud mask for your face to remove impurities. If your skin tone is uneven, fresh lemon juice helps to clarify and lighten.
  • This is also a great time to deep condition your hair with penetrating oils like jojoba, olive or coconut oil. Wash it away with a soft shampoo and add an authentic tea rinse to make your hair glisten.
  • From time to time, you can add lemon juice to your hair and then sit in the sun for a while to create natural highlights.

Nourish Your Skin Inside and Out

Remember, to trim your brows and to brush them up to fix your eyes. You can condition your eyelashes to make them thicker and longer too.

  • Once a week, gently brush your teeth with baking soda or basil leaves to remove beverage stains.
  • It’s also a sound idea to brush your skin with a natural body brush to keep it supple and healthy. If you experience dry skin, you can add olive oil with a couple of beads of lavender oil to dampen and nourish your skin.

The Return of High Hair

High hair and chic undo’s are the flair of today’s fashion craze. Women are having a grand old time devising new modes to pinning up their hair to keep up with attractive styles. French women have always loved to wear their hair in a chignon. They look timeless in the process.

Currently, American designers have gotten this great gist. They're demanding their models to wear striking high hair along with staged styles on the fashion runway to formulate trendy fashion waves.

An eye-catching up-do creates a special type of classy, youthful gaze! Your hairstyle will automatically make your clothes look better if it is pinned up beautifully, and even if it is a bit messy with loose strands of sexy hair.

Salons Offer Trendy Hairstyles

Hair stylist Orlando Pita of Orlo Salon goes high and mighty with an up do that's out of this world and probably taken to an extreme. He uses no pins, but rather teases the tresses up into a hair sprayed spiral with the hair ends sticking up in the air, very interesting indeed. It’ll take a brave young gal who's tremendously sure of herself to wear such a hair do that is, nevertheless, alluring for our modern times. Of course, beauty is in the eyes of the beholder, so who am I to judge.

It’s not too hard to create timeless high hair; all you need is a bit of hair spray and gel, if your hair is silky and straight. Except, if you have curly or frizzy hair, it’ll be easier to create an impressive up-do without a great deal of teasing, or hair spray.

Remember, to drench your hair with a rich leave-in conditioner between up-dos with high hair to prevent your locks from breaking at the roots, or splitting at the ends.

Easy French Chignon

A French Chignon is simple to create; all you need are a few hair pins and a pony tail holder. Comb your hair into a loose pony tail at the crown of your head or nap of your neck, then loosely pin the ends of your hair on your head in a circular fashion.

For a dramatic effect, you can insert a couple of tiny flowers in your hair to match your garments. A chignon will give you the effect of looking fresh and younger with your hair pinned up, instead of wearing it loose, just like the ageless and late Audrey Hepburn of the blockbuster movie “My Fair Lady" of the 1960s.

    I like the motto about if you cannot eat it, don't put it on your face. It gets harder to follow as you age.
