Have You Tried Using a Face Mask In Powder Form?

A face and body mask packaged in a powder format that requires blending with a “mixer” before application has the following advantages:

First – the system offers you 100% natural product without the presence of artificial fragrances or preservatives which can potentially irritate delicate facial skin.
Second – this dry system enables you to use one product for virtually any skin type. The key is in the “mixer”: such as milk, water or yogurt, honey, olive, cream – this material is targeted to your skin type, which means you can have just one product, yet still achieve incredible versatility. This makes the face mask in powdered form extremely flexible.
Finally – it is so reassurring mixing up your own mask tailored specifically to your personal needs. The application of a fresh, customizable mask is a memorable and very effective experience.

Is Your Makeup Infested with Bacteria? Throw it Away NOW!

Is Your Makeup Infested with Bacteria? Throw it Away NOW!

Would you rub germs and bacteria on your face? Well that is exactly what you are doing when you are reusing makeup after a certain period of time. It’s quite filthy when you think about it. If you put your 6 months old makeup under a microscope, you will be horrified to find the germs crawling, swimming and doing acrobatic moves under your very eyes. Disgusting thought? It’s a disgusting fact!

The shelf life for most makeup that has been opened and used is normally around 3 – 6 months. Any makeup that comes in contact with the eyes and eye fluid is the perfect breeding ground for bacteria – mascaras, eye liners and eye shadows should belong in the rubbish bin after 3 months. Bacteria such as  Staph, yeast and fungal can develop and if the bacteria gets into your eyes, you may develop eye infections such as conjuctivitus or other more serious eye conditions.

So how long before you throw away your makeup? Find out what the shelf life is for each makeup product once it has been used for the first time.
