I have sensitive skin and you ladies know I have always complained about my pigmentation problems like we woman do … Then 1 of my clients while I’m busy doing her makeup suggest I try something different… WHAT THIS ? 

Being prone to breakouts not only when I don’t do my daily evening beauty regime but more importantly being exposed to harsh sun conditions. I have to apply SPF and sun block every single day and yes even before I apply makeup – hugely important and great tip      
So she says try a treatment called the Dermanpen 
This treatment is also known as the Collagen Induction Therapy – in short CIT – when I highly concentrated serum is being used on the area treated during the session. 

The serum contains a Hyaluronic Acid (HA) which increase the moisture in the skin as well as other ingredients which stimulate the fibrolasts of the skin which reproduce collagen and elastin 
The benefits of The Dermapen Treatments are multiple however the most effective ones are : 
• Skin tightening and natural collagen

• Induction, lifting and rejuvenation

• Acne, scars and wound healing

• Reduces wrinkles and fine lines

• Minimizes pore sizes

• Improves stretch marks

• Treats alopecia (when used in conjunction with topical treatment)

• No cross infection – disposal needles
More advantages of The Dermapen Treatment :

6 COMMON BEAUTY MISTAKES 

So ladies we have all had it happen to us at one point in our lives. You get new foundation with high hopes, you bring it home, open it up, excited to try it…!…Its the wrong colour. Worst feeling ever, right!?
So because you doesn’t so much money, you either let it sit in your makeup drawer till it expires (yes makeup do expire), our read on for ways to still make use of it.
Today I will be sharing the Top 6 Most Common Beauty Mistakes to Avoid
Mistake 1: The Wrong Foundation

This is a mistake done by so many women on a daily basis. Its hard to pick out a colour on your own.

What you want and should do is to choose a colour closer to your skin tone. If you can’t pin point your foundation shade exactly right you can use a tinted moisturizer.
Mistake 2: Dark Eyeliner For Daytime

As black is pretty much the standard colour for eyeline use.

Ladies, their is actually a variety of eyeliners out their that will make your eyes stand out. Black eyeliner during the day can make you look drab and harsh. You can lighten things up by choosing, plum or even a mute forest green can look amazing on brown eyes.
Mistake 3: Going Overboard With Makeup To Cover Skin Issues

If you suffering from skin issues that you aren’t currently treating, makeup isn’t going to completely mask the issue. It can make it worse. Your makeup is as good as your skincare. If you want to try a new regimen to banish those blemishes or south red cheeks, try finding skincare brand/product that will tackle your problem.
Mistake 4: Too Light Concealer

“Raccoon eye” is real ladies. That’s the area where your concealer is a bit to light casting a white shadow around your eye area. Instead when covering up dark circles, you tend to unwanted attention to the eye area. So make sure your concealer isn’t too light.
Mistake 5: Frozen Hair

Let’s get this straight ladies. I’m pretty sure their ladies that are still wearing the same hairstyle from high school. Its time to add some volume and movement to your hair. Hair is meant to be flowing with life, so embrace change and try something new with your hair.
Mistake 6: Not Throwing Out The Old Beauty Products

Now ladies this is important. Beauty products do not last forever. So as saying goes out with old in with new ans who doesn’t like some good makeup shopping.

Usually these products last for up a year or two at most. Getting rid of them can help you avoid ineffective products and bacteria
Let’s embrace change with new style and get some good makeup shopping

Go out and rock it with confidence

Why use a makeup primer?

Today’s Technique Makeup Tip is all about Primers
Now ladies when it comes facial primers it is an absolute mandatory makeup routine. You’ll be shocked to believe that it is essential makeup step that is so often overlooked by many.
Applying face primer is essential step to prepping your skin. Investing in a good primer not only extend the life of your makeup but also make you look fresh and vibrant.
Here’s brief description on how to choose primer for you:


Face Primer for Dry Skin: If have skin that is dry or flakey, your face primer should then provide a intense dose of hydration. This primer for dry skin should moisterize and nourish the skin leaving a soft and supple base for your foundation
Face Primer for Oily Skin: For those with oily skin, look or search for an oil free mattifying primer which will help combat shine throughout the day and keep oil at bay leaving your skin with a matte base to apply foundation on. Best primer selections for oil based skins will most likely be a silicone base which helps fills large pores
Face Primer for Sensitive Skin: For sensitive skin tones you have to find the right face primer which can help blur and soorthe blemishes with a formulation that contains most gentle ingredients for your skin
The Benefits as depicted in the picture are:
It tightens your pores thus preventing your face from becoming oily
After primer application, you will use less foundation, giving you more use out of your face makeup
Primer gives you a smooth canvas to work on by filling in those fines lines and wrinkles
Primers helps keep foundation in place all day long
Also, helps keeps lipstick from feathering out on lip lines
And that ladies is your  Makeup Tip. Go get that Primer and make it part of your makeup routine

Why Do We Get Breakouts During The Fast

The holy month of ramadaan is the most sacred of muslim beliefs which strengthens our ability of self-control and most importantly bring us closer to Almighty in all ways.

image

As fasting is done in many cultures for political, spiritual and health reasons. While some people fast to show their
devotion to their deity or to protest an unfair law, there are a
large number of people turning to fasting to improve their health.
Weight loss is the most commonly cited reason to fast; however,
fasting has been shown through studies to have both negative and positive effect on our skin.

image

image

So here is a few reasons why I think we hav breakouts during fast.

When we start our fasting process you give your a complete break from foods and liquids and as the majority of our energy goes into digesting the foods we eat on a daily basis, your body now then have a lot more energy than usual when you fasting and due to this the energy build up will work on things that it normally don’t have enough time for, such as the healing of old wounds and the removal of built up toxins in your body.

If your skin is prone to breakouts or even an occasional blemish, it is possible that while fasting you will experience an episode of acne on or around the third day of your fast as you are not putting anything into your body, your body is now able to focus on cleansing your system instead of digesting and breaking down food.  While your body is cleansing itself of toxins, some of these will be leaving your body through your skin, creating some blemishes on the surface.

Let’s not shy away from this as I know majority of you ladies – myself included, loves unhealthy foods. So if you have consumed unhealthy foods and drinks as well as breathing polluted air, you are then most likely full of toxins then there is a good chance that if and when you go on fast you will experience something known as a “Healing Crisis” which is when there are tons of toxins being removed from your body that you develop “Sickness- like Symptoms”.

Our bodies have 7 organs which is designed to eliminate toxins in our body which is namely – the colon, liver, kidneys, lungs, blood, lymphatic system and your skin, and when massive amounts toxins are being eliminated from our body these organs will go immediately take effect and work a lot harder than normal. That is why we develop skin eruptions such as rashes, pimples and itching.

The fats in our body are composed of transformed fatty acids which is broken down when we fast to release glycerol from the gliceride molecules which converts into glucose.
People with problem free skin may have a few days of pimples or even a boil due to this.
But with that said, always think of the bigger. RAMADAN MUBARAK
