Pimples, blackheads, whiteheads. No one likes them. There are a number of causes of these breakouts: poor diet, stress, lack of sleep, hormones, hygiene, and the products that you use. Today, we'll focus on the last two.
While some people are misinformed about the relationship between oil and skin, others have tried serums but didn't use them correctly. You must apply on damp skin - that is, after you wash your face or after you apply toner. This allows for easy application and for the serum to be distributed evenly. The other reason why people are hesitant to try serums is because they seem to be expensive. If you use 4 drops a day and a 25ml container provides 500 drops, this means that one little jar will last 125 days or 4 months!
Starting June 28th, Lionheads will only be able to fulfill in-stock items due to renovations. Apologies for any inconveniences.
Like many people, I always believed that using "anti-bacterial" soaps were necessary. However, recent scientific studies have shown that soaps containing such "anti-bacterial" chemicals as triclosan, do not help reduce bacteria. In fact, they are harmful to you and the environment. In the United States, the FDA has ordered companies that use these chemicals to stop using them.
Most of you probably know that essential oils are very expensive so I've decided to share with you my must-have oils. Not only do essential oils smell great, but they are so useful in so many ways. They can be used as air fresheners, relieve cold symptoms, as well as treat skin conditions. The best thing is that they are natural and do not leave nasty toxins in your body.
Warmer and sunnier days are just around the corner. Now which type of sun protection should I use? Do mainstream sun protection creams cause more harm (cancer-causing) than good? What is the difference between sunscreen and sunblock? If I wear sun protection, can I stay out in the sun as long as I want? These are some common questions that I’ve been concerned about. After reading some studies on sun protection, here are some of my personal findings.
I was very skeptical when I heard about Acquarella nail polish, but I thought I'd give it a try. Unlike most nail polishes, this water-based nail polish does not contain toxic ingredients such as toluene, formaldehyde, camphor, or petrochemical solvents and claims to be non-toxic. It also claims to be suitable for people like me who have Multiple Chemical Sensitivities and cannot withstand the fumes of conventional nail products.
