A Change in Thyme: Control Blemishes Naturally
Excess oil buildup, clogged pores, inflammation, and bacteria have all been known to cause acne. Acne is an unfortunate reality not just for teenagers, but also for many adults. Luckily, many women have resorted to natural home remedies found right in their kitchen to control breakouts, soothe redness, and keep skin glowing the natural way.
This citrusy, aromatic, sweet, earthy herb contains anti-inflammatory properties and is an ideal alternative treatment for women with sensitive skin. Use one tablespoon of dried thyme in combination with three tablespoons of witch hazel for a homemade facial toner.
The citric acid in lemons acts as a natural astringent and antibacterial agent to exfoliate dead skin cells rapidly, kill bacteria, and prevent clogged pores. Simply juice a lemon in a bowl. Then soak a cotton ball in the lemon juice and rub it over the blemish on your face before bed. In the morning, rinse it away with cool water.
Look for Kasturi turmeric (curcuma aromatica) in Indian stores as a topical agent to clear acne, brighten your complexion, inhibit facial hair growth, remove redness from acne and scarring, reduce inflammation, and even out skin discoloration. Apply directly to your skin.
The sweet, warm smell of cinnamon wafting through the air is irresistible. Look for cinnamon found in soaks and scrubs, which stimulates blood circulation, draws nutrients and oxygen to the skin, and eliminates blemishes through its antibacterial properties.
Colors That Complement
When makeup matches the skin’s complexion, not only does it enhance our appearance, but it also boosts our confidence and self-esteem. When we prime and prep ourselves for a night out on the town, we want to make sure our outfit, hair, and makeup are picture perfect. With thousands of shades of lipstick on the market, choosing the correct lip color can be tricky. For example, have you ever seen a woman with thin lips wearing dark brown lipstick, and you cringe because it makes her lips look even smaller?
Here are some tips and tricks for finding the shade of lipstick that is right for your skin, whether you are fair, dark-skinned, or somewhere in-between:
Fair Skin Tone
To achieve that super-flattering look, try nude, peach, and pink shades, which will complement your porcelain features. For a glamorous and dramatic look, try a cherry red lipstick. Make sure to avoid browns, yellows, dark chocolate, and burgundy shades that will contrast with pale skin.
Medium/Olive Skin Tone
Rely on pinks, especially those with brown or coral undertones. Stay away from purple, which will accentuate the yellow undertones in your skin and give it a sallow appearance. Brown lip color will also make you appear overly monochromatic. Remember, lipstick is about contrast, but just the right amount.
Yellow Skin Tone
Deep browns or berries will work wonders for your complexion. Wear reds that are blue-based for a night out on the town or bronze shades for a slightly monochromatic finish. Make sure to avoid bright oranges, reds, and purples, because these colors will bring out the yellow in your skin and cause an unflattering appearance.
Dark Skin Tone
Luckily with darker skin hues, almost anything goes, including browns, purples, and reds. For a fun and fresh pop of color, try orange or coral shades. Make sure to avoid milky white colors because it’s too much contrast.
General Tips for the Lips
The darker the lip color, the smaller your lips and eyes will appear. The lighter and brighter the lip color, the larger your lips will look. When in doubt, you can always apply a fun, simple, shimmery, sheer lip gloss and skip the lip color all together.
Ask the Doctor
My face is starting to lose its youthful appearance. How can I rejuvenate my look and instantly add lift to my wrinkles and folds?
As you grow older, you may start to notice changes in your skin’s appearance. Aging skin loses the support structure that keeps it supple and youthful. Collagen and elastin naturally begin to diminish. An unfortunate reality for every woman is seeing the start of wrinkles and creases, especially on a once-flawless face.
So what can you do to help keep that natural-looking, youthful appearance? Luckily, RADIESSE® injectable filler can help. RADIESSE helps improve your appearance by diminishing facial wrinkles and folds resulting in a more rejuvenated look.
