5 Makeup and Skin Care Ingredients to Avoid If You’re Acne-Prone

For those with acne prone skin, even the slightest variation can lead to a break out. But what’s causing it? You’re eating right, checking ingredients on labels on makeup and lotions, but there may be hidden ingredients that you didn’t even know were contributing to your acne.


Here are five ingredients to avoid in skin care products that have been found to cause breakouts

#1 Petroleum and Dimethcone in Moisturizers
Why would you want to moisturize pimple-prone skin? Most people with acne avoid moisturizers – a decades-long urban legend that moisturizers will make you break out even more. Wrong. It isn’t the moisturizer, it’s the ingredients. Find oil free moisturizers that are labeled “non-comedogenic” (non-pore clogging). Look for glycerin in the product, which will hold the moisture to the skin. Avoid anything with petroleum and dimethicone. There’s a debate over whether mineral oil is OK for people to use who have acne. Some say it’s fine, others say stay away. The best bet is to see what works for you.

#2 Bismuth Oxychloride
In makeup, oil-free, again, is the way to go here. The very first ingredient in a foundation should be water. Many of the new, natural makeups contain almond oil or coconut oil, which clog pores. Bismuth oxychloride is often found in powder makeups, like mineral makeup and is added to give shimmer and shine to the powder. It’s also in bronzers. Researchers have found that the ingredient promotes the formation of blackheads and whiteheads. It has been linked to cystic acne.

#3 Lanolin
There’s another ingredient to look for that has pore-clogging capabilities and it’s used frequently in many makeup and skin care products. It’s lanolin, an oil extracted from lamb’s wool. Cosmetics will sometimes have a synthetic lanolin derivative called acetylated lanolin alcohol, which can cause your skin to go from clear to breakout in 0 to 60 seconds. Well, maybe not exactly, but it can certainly seem that way.

#4 Sulfates
Scrubs and cleansers contain sulfates, which are added to make them sudsy. But the ingredient is pesky to remove and leaves a film on skin creating a breeding ground for bacteria. Look for the ingredient sulfate or sodium lauryl sulfate. This is often found in shampoos, too.

#5 Menthol, Peppermint and Other Astringents
Strong astringents may lead you to believe they’ll clean up pimples, but sometimes they do just the opposite. Products that contain menthol, peppermint, eucalyptus, lemon, grapefruit or lime irritate the skin. When that happens, the skin tries to repair itself by increasing oil production, which leads to more breakouts.


Sparkle with the Perfect Engagement Ring

Sparkle with the Perfect Engagement Ring

In order to get your special woman the engagement ring that she will cherish forever, taking the time to shop for that right ring is the most important part of the process.

Whether you plan on spending a significant amount of money for the ring or will be holding back on how much you spend, it is important that you look around (both in-person and online) to see what the best buys are, along with what she most wants.

For many couples, they will end up shopping together, making the engagement ring buying process all the more special.

With that being said, are you ready to have her sparkle with the perfect engagement ring?

Put Time and Effort into Finding the Winner

So that you can give her a ring she truly wants, here are a few tips to remember:

  1. Together or on your own? – For starters, determine if you will be shopping for the ring together or you will mostly do it on your own, that is of course with some recommendations from her. Some women are perfectly fine with giving their guy some advice, and then letting him go and pick out the perfect engagement ring, surprising her when all is said and done. Others, meantime, want to make it a couple affair, browsing for and ultimately buying the ring when they are together at a jewelry store or even online. Decide which route you both want to take so that you are both on the same page;
  2. Selections to choose from –Whether looking at a morganite and diamond ring or a wide array of other selections, be sure to give yourselves plenty of selections with which to choose from. The best way to go about this is by making sure you visit a number of jewelers in your area. You should also use the Internet (see more below) for ideas. For example, many jewelers nationwide have websites, sites that they post pictures and descriptions of a variety of engagement rings for sale. This will give both of you a better idea of what she wants before you even set foot in a jewelry store. Simply find some rings of interest, and then print out pictures and information that correlate with each one. You can take these printouts into the jewelers, making it easier on them and you in order to find that perfect engagement ring;
  3. Going online – As mentioned a moment ago, the worldwide web has become more important for couples when it comes to learning about styles and pricing for engagement rings. Along with jeweler websites, you can also visit social media pages for both jewelers and those discussing engagement rings. Many jewelry experts have blogs and other online resources, resources that can provide you with a wealth of information. Also use social sites like Instagram and Pinterest, both of which are great for seeing pages dedicated specifically to jewelry and engagement rings. Don’t be afraid to engage in online discussions, allowing you to get feedback from jewelry experts and others looking to get engaged;
  4. When and where to present it? – Finally, when and where to present the special ring is a decision many men battle with over time. Do they surprise her when it is just the two of them out somewhere? Does he do it with many others, including family and friends, around to witness it all? If your special lady already knows she is going to be getting an engagement ring sooner rather than later, it pretty much just boils down to a matter of when and where to present her with it. Always try and go for the surprise impact, leaving you both with memories for a lifetime of where you were when she got her proposal.

If you decide to shop together for her engagement ring, make sure you are both on the same page when it comes to what she wants, pricing etc.

The last thing any couple wants to have happen is for there to be notable disagreement during the engagement ring shopping process.

Get the engagement ring done and over with, move along to that big day where you both exchange sacred vows, and then focus on the honeymoon, a time where it will be just the two of you getting away from it all.


Find the Beauty in Running an Organized Business

When you run a salon or similar type of business, you know the importance of keeping each and every client happy.

Whether it is going out of your way to make their appointment fit your daily work schedule or giving them specials that they would not receive anywhere else, you want your clients to know you truly care about them.

That being the case, what are you doing to go above and beyond what might be deemed necessary in keeping your clients happy?


In the event you have to think about that for a moment or two, then you might very well have some work to do.

Putting Your Customers First

In order for your business to not only attain success, but then keep the success train moving ahead full-steam, it is important that you never get away from what got you to the top to begin with.

For most business owners, they will tell you that superior customer service is why their companies have done well.

With that in mind, make sure you have the following bases covered, especially for those running salons and similar businesses, businesses where customer service takes on added importance:

  1. Technology – For starters, how good is your company’s technology? When you have salon software for your business, you give yourself a competitive edge, an edge that other similar businesses may very well not have. For example, such software can help you stay on top of all scheduling needs, something that is crucial in running a company where clients are coming and going all day. That scheduling software allows you to send them a friendly reminder about their appointment, along with reminding you of when clients are coming in, along with how many you can expect on a daily basis. Instead of trying to jot down countless names and times for appointments, discover how much easier it can be with the simple check of your desktop or mobile device. Such software can also you in recording each and every sales transaction, once again making your life and those of your clients easier;
  2. Marketing – The above-mentioned technology can also prove helpful when it comes to marketing your brand, something you need to do on a regular basis. You can send out emails and texts (with client approval) to alert them not only to scheduling matters, but also when you have specials running on products and services. For instance, if you are running a salon and are offering a free haircut and styling to first-time customers, sending that message via emails or texts to current clients is not a waste of time. They are apt to know one or more people who would willingly take advantage of such an offer, leading to you possibly landing new clients moving forward. Also look to use mobile marketing as a means of promoting your brand. Once again, the right software package can make it easy to send off alerts to current and prospective clients about all kinds of exciting offers you have available;
  3. Feedback – Finally, always make it a point to listen to what your customers have to say about your business. Some business owners may get a little bit too full of themselves, thinking that the front door will always revolve, sending in wave after wave of customers. While that may be true in some situations, when it comes to many other such situations, businesses have to continue to work for their customers over and over again. Part of doing that job is listening to suggestions, even the occasional complaints customers will put forth. Saying you listen to your customers and actually doing it are two entirely different things. Always be willing to take the time and effort needed to hear what customers want to tell you.

From a salon business to countless other ones, the beauty of it all working out is when you have things organized.

In organizing your business, technology, marketing, feedback, they all play key roles in making you successful.

As you watch 2016 wind down, think about the upcoming New Year, wondering how you can make your business even more profitable and beautiful when all is said and done.


Will Hair Extensions Cut it for You?

If you stop and look at your hairstyle for a moment or two, are you happy with what you see?

For many women, their hairstyles are one of if not the most important features on their bodies. When it comes to having a bad hair day, some women find it almost impossible to deal with.

That said getting your hair just the way you want it doesn’t have to seem like pulling teeth, especially if you have all of the right accessories at your disposal.

One such option is going for hair extensions, something many women have found to be the difference between so-so looking hair and hair that truly stands out.


So, will hair extensions cut it for you?

Shopping for the Best Look

So that you can truly find the hairstyle that will leave you smiling when all is said and done, remember a few pointers:

  • Open mind – First and foremost, will you give hair extensions a try? Whether you have family members or friends using them, the fact is they have become quite popular over the years with millions of women. As a result, you might just find that they were the answer you were looking for. Once nice thing about them is that you are under no long-term commitment with them. If you try them out and determine they are not for you, then you simply go in a different direction with trying to find the hairstyle you want and need. Make sure any hair extension provider you buy from offers a money back guarantee. Whether opting for curly, straight, double drawn or other such styles, know that you have a wide array with which to select from;
  • Those you know – What are some of the hairstyles of women you know in both your circle of family and friends? Oftentimes, those closest to you can give you some great ideas when it comes to what styles might best suit you. For example, if one of your girlfriends is going for a “new look” in the near future, accompany her to the salon, seeing what she ultimately ends up with. This will give you some ideas of what might best suit your hair;
  • See what others like – If you have access to a computer or mobile device, you can get a plethora of hairstyles right at your fingertips. From blogs about hairstyles to social media pics (Instagram, Pinterest, Snapchat etc.), there is plenty of information out there for you to choose from. For instance, if you are in college, you have plenty of other women’s hairstyles to grab your attention. Since many young women love to use social media, you are likely to come across their posts about their new looks on any given day. You can also follow those on Instagram who post often about hairstyles and/or blog about it. Finally, take the time to engage others on social media when they’re discussing hair styles, hair extension products, hair colorings and more;
  • Doing what you want – Lastly, always make sure any hairstyle look you come up with is ultimately what you want. It is important to always feel good about the look and feel of your hair for you, not what someone else wants to see on you. Experimenting with different looks allows you to do just that, so feel free to try a number of options over time. When it comes to pricing, there are numerous deals out there on hair extensions, just know where to look for the best prices and the best products when all is said and done. Also keep your eyes and ears looking out for hair extension businesses running specials during the year. In some cases, such companies will offer first-time customers specials deals, something that you should certainly take advantage of.

If hair extension haven’t cut it for you in the past (or you have never tried them before), now might be the right time to give them a try.

By using those around you and the Internet for ideas, you might find that hair extensions after all are a cut above the rest.

Brush up on hair extensions, giving you the look and feel you so desire.

#2 Makeup Makeovers in 5, 10, 15 and 20 Minutes

How to Simplify Your Beauty Routine in College

Wouldn’t it be nice if every morning afforded the luxury and time for a full-fledged flawless makeover along the likes of today’s top celebrities? A sultry smoke eye along the likes of Kim or the perfect pout of her sister Kylie. Taylor Swift’s girl-next-door look on a Monday and an outrageous, over-the-top Katy Perry saved for Saturday night. It would be every girl’s dream to have the time, resources, and budget for beauty endeavors like those of stars.

For the rest of us, a simple and solid makeup routine is usually all there’s time for. Young women today are busier now than ever before. Work, grocery shopping, a lunch date, that yoga class – schedules are busy and days are long. Add the commitment of college to that mix, and those days become even longer. The art and practice of learning at a college level, whether you’re a senior in one of LLM tax programs or freshman at Duke University, can be incredibly rigorous.

Thankfully, we’re here to teach a different kind of lesson, a much easier one. This lesson is all about simplifying your morning beauty routine. A few tips and tricks are all that are necessary to make getting made up quick, simple, and done in a cinch.

Find Your Five-minute Face

This is key. Every modern maven must have a five-minute face. What exactly is a five-minute face? Just what it sounds like, a look that, from start to finish takes five minutes and covers all your beauty basics. It doesn’t have to be boring, but it does have to be fast. Start by identifying your strongest features and use that as your focus. Typically, this quick cover-your-basics beauty routine includes foundation, mascara, eyeliner, and a little lip color, but you can tailor it to be all your own. Whatever works for you that is doable on the daily is all that matters.

Clear the Clutter

Do you have eight tubes of mascara, thirteen shades of half-used lipstick, and a shades of shadow that Van Gogh would only dream of? This would be no problem if you had the time to use them all, but often it’s only about 10% of your beauty products that actually get used. The rest merely gather dust and complicate your routine by forcing you to dig through a chaotic collection of pencils, palates, and pigments. Do yourself a favor and clean out your beauty products. All those items that you haven’t used in two months, that are broken or dried up, that aren’t your color, toss them. It’ll make your morning much simpler.

Forgo Perfection

It can be tempting to want to achieve the ideal look day in and day out, but it’s impractical to think you’ll be able to. As a college student, the seemingly endless commitments mean you won’t have time to sparkle like the celebrities all the time. Save that for the big nights and special occasions. For the rest of the time, just stick with simple looks that leave your feeling good.

5 Clever Makeup Tips for College Girls

The perfect pout, a sultry smoky eye, and clear complexion in five minutes flat? There’s no way. Throw into the mix a limited budget and a shared bathroom two sizes too small and we’ve just moved into the realm of sheer impossibility. What modern woman today has the time, the space, the energy, and the resources to achieve a blow-your-mind beauty routine day in and day out? Maybe if you’re a Kardashian, these types of application ambitions are doable, but not for the rest of us. There are too many errands to complete, jobs to do, and if possible, a few hours here or there to eat, sleep, and drink. For the modern college girl, it’s even harder to get it all done. Limited space and spending money in addition to limited time often cause beauty to take a backseat.

Not anymore. Say ta-ta to the tedious task of the makeup routine you once knew and welcome a more streamlined approach to finessing your face. From the forums and discussion boards at USC Online to the lecture halls and libraries of Herzing University, this is a lesson you don’t want to miss. We’ve put together five of the best time-saving tips to speed up your beauty routine and still look like a million bucks. So grab your pencils – one for your palate and one for your paper – and take note.

  1. Find Your Five-minute Face

Every girl has to have one, a five-minute face all her own. There will be times that require over-the-top artistry and a full flawless face from chin to cheek, lash to lip. Today, however is not that day. Neither is tomorrow or Wednesday or next Tuesday or four Thursdays from yesterday when that French literature paper is due. For those days and approximately 98% of the rest of your days, a quick signature look will more than suffice. It doesn’t have to be boring, but it does have to be fast. Play up your favorite feature and keep it simple so you can get through it from start to finish in five minutes flat. That way, every morning you can apply your face with no thought, no time, no effort.

  1. Simplify Your Stash

Whether you’re a make-up pro or a basic beauty novice, it’s highly likely you have a collection of makeup that’s larger than it needs to be. Colors you’ve worn once, old mascara bottles that have since been replaced two-times over, lipstick that’s melted but might be salvageable if ever you had the time to try. These things clutter your cabinets and your morning routines. The more junk you have to sort through to find what you’re looking for, the longer it’ll take you to actually get ready. So toss out everything that is old, dried-up, cracked, or unused. Then, get organized and stay organized. Keep your vanity visibly sorted by color or product so finding exactly what you’re looking for is a breeze.

  1. Invest in Multi-function Products

First there were BB creams. Then there were CC creams and tinted moisturizers with SPF. Now just about every health and beauty company is churning out a two-in-one this and a dual-use that. Beauty products today are being made for the girl on the go, so it’s about time you took advantage. There are lipsticks that double as blushes, all-in-one concealer/foundation/moisturizers, and pencils that can line lid, lash, and lip. Invest in these to save both time and money.

  1. When it Comes to Washing, Sometimes Less is More

It used to be sheer common sense that daily shampoo treatments were the key to clean hair and an unbeatable ‘do. Not anymore. More time between washes has actually been proven better for your hair. Likewise, a little natural oil from your scalp can add volume and texture. Dry shampoo can also prolong the need for more frequent washes. Still craving that just-washed clean feeling? Sometimes all it takes it just takes giving your bangs a quick rinse to lend your locks new life.

  1. Reorder How You Apply

You wouldn’t necessarily think that the order in which you apply your beauty products would make a difference in how long it takes, but surprisingly it can. Putting on your eyeliner, shadow, and mascara before applying your foundation ensures that any unanticipated smudge doesn’t ruin your whole face. Likewise, if you blow dry your hair after you apply your makeup, you’ll have shaved even more time off your routine by taking advantage of a little air drying. The cool part is that it’s only the last little bits of moisture that matter in a blow-out, so letting the majority of your locks air out naturally won’t compromise your ‘do.

Tackling obesity by thinking outside the box

While there are plenty of well-documented problems that the world is facing right now, one that doesn’t seem to be getting any better is obesity.

More and more countries are starting to suffer with increasing rates of obesity and despite umpteen initiatives from governments around the world, the situation doesn’t seem to be easing.


One could pen a dissertation on all of the reasons why obesity is posing such a problem. There are all of the aggressive marketing campaigns from food companies, the emergence of even more fast food chains while some just suggest that it’s not even affordable to eat healthily by building meals “from scratch”. The list could well on truly go on but the main message is that a huge problem exists.

The most worrying part about the situation is that pretty much every person in the world knows the solution. If you eat fewer calories, and attempt some exercise to create a calorie deficit, you will start to lose weight.

There are also some other ways to navigate the situation and while some of these might not make quite as much difference, they may chip away at your weight and make it more manageable. Let’s take a look.

Weight loss surgery

We’re going to start with a bang and name one of the most modern approaches to weight loss; bariatric surgery. You only have to take a look at http://bariatric.stopobesityforlife.com to realize that there are scores of treatments that are available in tackling the problem, ranging from gastric bands to gastric sleeves.

Many go by the philosophy of reducing your stomach size so you are not able to consume as much food in one go. Some are temporary solutions, while others are permanent, but the results from the majority are hugely impressive and they are a proven way to reduce your waistline if you have been clinically classed as obese.

Be shrewd with your portions

Sometimes, it’s all about tricking the mind. For example, using smaller plates is an immediate way to curb your portion size and make your body consume fewer calories than it normally would.

If you can just knock small amounts from each portion size, over the course of time it can make a significant difference to your overall calorie intake.

Increase your water intake

This is perhaps one of the more interesting suggestions. As we’ve all been taught from a young age, the importance of staying hydrated should never be underestimated. However, it can also aid with weight loss – particularly if you turn to water about thirty minutes before consuming a meal.

A study found that individuals who did that increased their weight loss by 44% – mainly due to the fact that water makes you feel fuller temporarily.

Avoid the fad diets

This is arguably one of the biggest problems in the industry right now; there are far too many fad diets doing the rounds. There are no quick fixes when it comes to weight loss; you won’t be able to persevere with a strict diet indefinitely and this means that over time, your weight will return. Furthermore, a lot of these “fads” can have serious implications for your overall health as they aren’t supplying you with the correct nutrients, so this should also be kept in mind.

Learn How to Choose a Good Massage Therapist

It is not easy to get a reliable massage therapist to provide you with a massage therapy package that suits your needs. If you have sustained sports injuries or you have been involved in an accident, you might want to hire a massage therapist to help you heal properly. There are many of these professionals out there with huge promises, but only a few deliver on their promise. Therefore, it is important to conduct some research to get the best expert in this field. Here are some tips to help you get a registered massage therapist in your area.

massage therapy package

Conduct Research

Word of mouth is a good way to get the best massage therapist in your area. Talk to your friends, relatives and close colleagues, and ask if they know any registered massage therapist that they can recommend. If you know anyone among these people who was in a similar situation like you before, and utilized a massage therapy package similar to what you seek, ask about the professional they used. Listen to people’s experiences with different massage therapists to know who is good and who is not.

An online search is also a good way to get a registered massage therapist in your area. Read what other people are saying about different professionals and choose those with many positive reviews. Avoid any massage therapist who has many negative comments from people as this could be an indication of poor service quality.


Before hiring a massage therapist, ensure that they have an authentic license. Registered massage therapists will have no problem showing you their license. If you have doubts, contact the relevant authorities for confirmation. You can even get in touch with the local consumer organization to find out if there are any client complaints against a certain massage therapist, and how they were resolved.


When choosing a massage therapist, go for those with several years of experience. Ask how long a professional has been in this practice before hiring them. Massage therapists who have dealt with many patients with similar needs to yours will know the right massage therapy package for you. Experienced massage therapists have a reputation to protect, so they will offer quality services.


Ask a therapist for references from their list of clients. Contact these clients to inquire about their experience with the therapist in question. Find out if they were happy with the massage therapy package offered by the professional. Ask if they would hire the massage therapist again, if given a chance.


Price is a crucial consideration in any decision. When choosing a registered massage therapist, go for someone who offers high quality services at fair prices. Always compare costs from one expert to another in order to get the most reasonably priced services.

Personal Comfort

Choose a massage therapist that you are comfortable with. Remember, you want someone with which you are free to feel relaxed during the massage. A good massage therapist will be professional, but at the same time sociable enough to make their clients comfortable.
