Choose From 8 Different Forms of Foundation for Flawless Coverage

By Sophie Lee

Looking for a foundation? Ready to cover those unsightly imperfections. Take your pick from the following 8 foundation types, all working in combination to provide you with the perfect coverage suited for your skin. Lets start with the most common – the liquid foundation.

Liquid Foundation – is the most readily found and is suited to most, if not all – skin types. It is available in formulations from oil-free, oil-absorbing formulas to moisturizing formulas and gives varying degrees of sheer to medium coverage depending on the brand and the formula. You can purchase liquid foundation in a bottle or a tube. When applied, it gives you more coverage than a tinted moisturizer but less than a creme foundation.

Natural vs Organic vs Certified Organic In Australia

Natural vs Organic vs Certified Organic In Australia

By Greg Milham

There is currently a lot of confusion in the cosmetic and natural skin care market with many companies riding on the back of the growing swell of consumer support for organic products. A few years ago we had every manufacturer and marketer screaming “natural”‘ in fact so much so it was hard to find a brand that did NOT have the word natural on the label. More recently the word “organic” has become the new buzz word and superseded “natural” so the new definition of “natural” became organic for a lot of marketers and again many companies followed suit and began yelling it from the roof tops. But what does it all mean? Well nothing; anyone here in Australia can call themselves natural and organic as there is no body either government or private that polices these label claims. You can buy a product that has over 95% synthetic material and a very small amount of an organic herb and they could still have organic and natural noted all over the label.

Shea Butter Skin Care Benefits

When you hear of the word shea butter, it is not the same butter that you use to spread on your piece of toast in the morning. Although it wouldn’t do you any harm at all. In fact it will probably be much more beneficial for your health than using conventional lard butter. But the modern beauty industry have other ideas in mind with this remarkable element.

Stretch Mark Creams

Stretch Mark Creams

All stretch mark creams claim to do 2 things, and there are generally 2 objectives we want to achieve when using a stretch mark cream.

1. To prevent stretch marks from appearing or
2. To get rid of existing stretch marks.

At this stage, I’ve yet to come across a stretch mark cream that will totally eradicate those unsightly streaks on the belly, hips and buttocks. That’s not to say that stretch mark creams don’t work in helping to get rid of stretch marks, but it is just part of the solution.

Honey! And the Benefits For Our Skin

Honey or Money? I want both! But on a deserted island, a jar of honey would be worth all the money in the world to me. A cup of lemon tea with honey is heaven on earth. It is my favorite drink. Have it as a cool refreshing beverage in the summer, or a warm hydrating drink in the cold winter months. Delicious in taste, and so soothing for my throat and body. My favorite skin care product is also honey, apart from its incredible taste and aroma, honey is also great for our skin. Find out why?

Honey is Anti-Bacterial Used to Treat Skin Deceases and Prevent Infections
Honey is useful for various skin diseases. Honey has antibacterial properties due to its acidic nature and enzymically produced hydrogen peroxide. It is rich with ‘inhibine‘, the natural chemical substance that helps prevent the infections from occurring killing the germs on the surface of our skin. It works by absorbing the moisture out of the bacteria’s cell walls – most bacteria can not survive without the moisture around them, and therefore, honey has been considered as the good natural antiseptic for attacking various broad spectrum bacterial and fungal species.

Do You Believe the Lunar Cycle Can Effect Our Skin?

Written by Tiffany Greensdale

We’ve all heard of stories of mood swings, uncontrollable desires and crazy things happening during various phases of the moon cycle. But have you ever heard of the moon having a direct effect on the beauty of our skin? Let me throw a couple of examples at you and see if you agree with me….

Do you agree that sometimes when you  get a bikini wax, you are in complete agony and yet at other times it is almost pain-free? Or what about occasionally when you have a non- PMS linked food craving? In fact, just as bio-dynamic gardening recognizes the impact of the moon’s phases on growing cycles, so the moon effects our body’s natural cycles, too. Don’t believe me…… Keep a lunar calendar on your desk and start to observe the link for yourself.

For those of you that want to test the phenomenon, here are a few things you can try.

Organic Foundation Makeup Tips

Makeup foundation sits on the skin, covers most of the face, and we use more of it than most makeup items. Start to scan ingredient lists and avoid foundations that contain mineral oil and petroleum, because they tend to block pores, which may make you more prone to lumpy red spots or to little white pimples that break out under the skin’s surface.

As a shortcut, without having to read the entire ingredients list, look for the expression “non-comedogenic” on the packaging or one which is organic.
