Looking for a safe Skin Lighteners?

Safe Skin Lighteners - Safest Ingredients

Let’s take a look at some safer alternatives.  The ingredients that you will see in the safest whitening creams include:
• Bearberry
• Mulberry
• White mulberry
• Paper mulberry
• Licorice extract
• Vitamin C
• Nut-grass root, which is also known as coco-grass, purple nut sedge and red nut sedge

Of these ingredients, clinical trials have shown that nut-grass root is the most effective.  You see, skin lighteners work by inhibiting melanin production.  Melanin is responsible for the darker pigmentation that you see.

Other extracts have been shown to inhibit melanin production by only 8.9% at a .5% concentration, which is generally considered a non-irritation concentration.  A 0.5% concentration of nut-grass root inhibits melanin production by over 41%.  It is obviously more effective than hydroquinone, because all of the companies that include that ingredient use a 2% concentration.

Are you Looking for "the Best Acne Treatment"?

I'm suffering from acne since higschool and I have already graduated from college, still I have problems on acne. I've tried do many ways, including facial treatment, Not DERMA treatment because it's too expensive. I've also tried Proactive Solution but it doesn't work for me. Sometimes may acne fades but acne marks or scars remains for a very long time until I'm going to have acne again and my marks just keeps on increasing in number. Now, i really want to end this.

I did my research until I came up on Roaccutane (Isotretinoin), I became intrigued by this medication because I heard many good reviews about it. BUT it has also negative reviews. Side effects are common to those who took this drug. I'll be posting about Roaccutane in my future post. It was also said that dermatologists uses this medication as a LAST Resort. Meaning, you've tried different medications, including topical and others and nothing really works. PLUS you have really severe acne. I'm not placing my acne status on severe, cause I know how severe acne looks like. I could say that my acne is in slightly moderate status. But still, who don't want a clear skin? And who does want acne on their faces??? I did a lot of research on how to get rid of acne. Until I got into something that interests me. This self treatment is safe and a must try for me. Want to know my treatment as of now? I've tried this for about 5 days now, i plan on giving reports every week or every two weeks. Watch out and I'll be sharing this treatment on my next post.

Beauty Tips: Different Natural Facial Masks to Choose from

i find this different natural facial masks that you can do at home.


The kind of the mask you want to use depends on your skin type.

For dry skin, try:

  • an egg yolk mixed with olive oil and warmed honey
  • sour cream
  • plain olive oil
  • avocado

For oily skin:

  • dissolve a teaspoon of baking yeast in a small amount of warm milk, wait until foamy, then apply (best done in the bath tub);
  • puree flesh of a tomato and mix with some potato flour to make a paste;
  • cucumber (it will whiten your skin);
  • beaten egg whites with a few drops of lemon juice (great for getting rid of blackheads);
  • carrots (but don't use this one more than about every other week because it can overdry your skin). This one will make you look tanned.

General refreshing masks:

  • grapes (just cut a berry in half and rub lightly)
  • strawberries (test behind your ear first, because many people are allergic to strawberries  used this way even though they can eat them just fine)
  • honey and ricotta cheese

Many fruits and vegetables can also be used to good effect. Anything acidic (lemon, strawberries, etc) will tend to whiten and refresh your skin, but you need to be careful if your skin is dry.

In general, don't apply masks more often than about twice a week, and try to vary the ingredients.

It is a good idea to test the mask first. Apply a small amount behind your ear, wait 20 minutes, then wash off. Then wait 24 hours. If the skin behind your ear is normal, then go ahead and use the mask.

Tips for whitening your teeth


  Brush your teeth at least twice a day with whitening toothpaste
   to maintain your whitened teeth.


   Unlike the teeth whitening procedures, performed by a dentist
   that may whiten your teeth up to 15 shades, at-home bleaching products 
   may whiten your teeth from one to three shades, 
   depending on the tooth’s discoloration.

   If your teeth are too dark and you experience much discomfort
   during the treatments, consider porcelain veneers on specific discolored teeth.


   Baking soda can be used to whiten teeth at home but be very careful –
   use only a small amount of baking soda and brush your teeth with it
   thoroughly twice a week.


   Quit smoking in order to prevent future teeth discoloration.
   It’s essential to maintain excellent oral hygiene to maximize the longevity
   of the whitening treatment.


   Many dentists advice to use a straw when drinking soft drinks, coffee,
   tea as it may increase the chance of staining.


Whitening strips: Whitening strips are a common type of at-home teeth whitening as they lighten teeth effectively and are easy to use and convenient. Whitening strips are also effective in maintaining a bright smile and healthy teeth. They effectively remove surface stains, but they also protect the enamel from build-up of everyday stains. Most of the whitening strips are coated with a bleaching gel (peroxide-based gel) that lightens the teeth in one or two shade if used regularly. Like the whitening toothpastes, the whitening strips don’t change the tooth’s structure. The strips are easy to apply and can be used twice a day for gradual whitening. Most of the whitening strips shouldn’t be left on for more than 5-10 minutes, otherwise it may result in tooth sensitivity or gum discomfort. The result usually becomes apparent after the first days of usage and can last up for 2/ 3 months.

Tips on how to Minimize Pores in Face

minimize pores

I myself have obvious pores especially on inner cheeks, there are several ways to minimize your pores, this is just some of what I've researched on.

There exists no permanent way to close pores; however the use of a good toner after cleansing your face helps to close them temporarily.

-Fundation.Apply a foundation to hide the open pores. The foundation also acts as a protective layer between your skin and any pollutants. This is possibly the best way to conceal open pores in a hurry.

-Tomato Juice.However if you do not use make up then tomato acts as a good toning agent as well. Apply tomato juice to your skin regularly with a piece of cotton and leave it on for about 20 minutes each time. The tomato helps in shrinking the pores by reducing the sebum production and thus the pores open less and appear smaller.

-Mashed Papaya.You can also try mashed papaya; apply it directly to your skin and wash it off with Luke warm water after a while.

-Ice(my own remedy).Finally one the effective and best ways to close pores in a hurry is to rub a piece of ice or an ice cube wrapped in a cloth to your skin. The cold from the ice cube helps shrink the pore openings and also helps decrease the oil (sebum) production for a small amount of time.

-Other Tips.Avoid consuming foods that are high in fats and spices and drink a lot of water daily, its keeps your body healthy and sebum production levels lower.

Hair Care Tips For You!

Want to have softer and shiny hair? Here are some tips for you!

Fabric Softener
Dried-on overspray from hair spray can be tough to remove from walls and vanities, but even a buildup of residue is no match for a solution of 1 part liquid fabric softener to 2 parts water. Stir to blend, pour into a spray bottle, spritz the surface, and polish it with a dry cloth.

Liquid fabric softener diluted in water and applied after shampooing can untangle and condition fine, flyaway hair, as well as curly, coarse hair. Experiment with the amount of conditioner to match it to the texture of your hair, using a weaker solution for fine hair and a stronger solution for coarse, curly hair. Comb through your hair and rinse.
See more uses for Fabric Softener.

Hold the mayo … and massage it into your hair and scalp just as you would any fine conditioner! Cover your head with a shower cap, wait several minutes, and shampoo. The mayonnaise will moisturize your hair and give it a lustrous sheen.

Olive Oil
Is your hair as dry and brittle as sagebrush in the desert? Put the moisture back into it by heating 1/2 cup olive oil (don't boil it), and then liberally applying it to your hair. Cover your hair with a plastic grocery bag, then wrap it in a towel. Let it set for 45 minutes, then shampoo and thoroughly rinse.

Did you get almost as much paint in your hair as you did on the walls in your last paint job? You can easily remove that undesirable tint by moistening a cotton ball with some olive oil and gently rubbing it into your hair. The same approach is also effective for removing mascara -- just be sure to wipe your eyes with a tissue when done.

Want to put the life back into your limp or damaged hair? You can whip up a terrific hair conditioner by combining 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar with 2 tablespoons olive oil and 3 egg whites. Rub the mixture into your hair, then keep it covered for 30 minutes using plastic wrap or a shower cap. When time's up, shampoo and rinse as usual.

Tips For Lip Care

When I have cracked lips, i tend to use petroleum jelly or moisturizing lips stick to able to prevent lips from cracking but is there other ways? much better? here are some of the tips that I've researched on:

Taking care of lips is a two-fold process - hydrating them and sealing the moisture in. Hydration of lips can be undertaken by using lip balms and skin moisturizers containing Vitamin E or aloe Vera. Avoid licking your lips to avoid dehydration of lips. Drink plenty of water in dry weather to keep the body and skin adequately hydrated. Lips do not produce oil like our skin, because they have no oil producing glands. The skin on our lips is actually mucous membrane, so for them to remain smooth and chap free is a bit of a challenge.
The most common cause of cracked lips are allergic reaction to cosmetics, skin infections, extreme weather conditions like excess sun and wind exposure, biting of the lips or a vitamin B deficiency. The tips listed below are to aid you in keeping your lips soft and smooth. Following these tips would also help prevent cracking and chapping of lips.

Avoid over exposure to sun and use a lip balm containing sun-block when going outside.
Keep yourself well hydrated by drinking lots of water.
Avoid frequent lip licking.
Protect the lips from weather by applying heavy plain cream.
Take vitamin B, C foods in diet.
Always apply a natural lip balm to protect your lips.
Avoid smoking.

Remarkable Hair Care Tips

Here are some hair tips that you would absolutely Love!

Baking Soda
When it comes to personal grooming, too much of a good thing can spell bad news for your hair. But a thorough cleansing with baking soda at least once a week will wash all of the gunk out of your hair. Simply add 1 tablespoon soda to your hair while shampooing. In addition to removing all the chemicals you put in your hair, it will wash away water impurities, and may actually lighten your hair.

Put some life back into flat hair with some flat beer. Before you get into the shower, mix 3 tablespoons beer in 1/2 cup warm water. After you shampoo your hair, rub in the solution, let it set for a couple of minutes, then rinse it off. You may be so pleased by what you see, you'll want to keep a six-pack in the bathroom.

To give a natural shine to dry hair, use a quart (liter) of warm, unsweetened tea (freshly brewed or instant) as a final rinse after your regular shampoo.

Is your hair dry and brittle? Try buttering it up for a luxuriant shine. Massage a small chunk of butter into your dry hair, cover it with a shower cap for 30 minutes, then shampoo and rinse thoroughly.

Castor Oil
For healthy, shiny hair, mix 2 teaspoons castor oil with 1 teaspoon glycerin and one egg white. Massage it into your wet hair, wait several minutes, and wash out.

Causes Of Chapped Or Cracked Lips

I experience cracking of lips oftentimes, I use differetn solutions but it keeps coming back, why are we getting cracked lips??? I've researched and they say that main causes for chapped lips are:

Lip licking - This is a habit that can lead to chapping of lips on account of the loss of natural oils. The chemicals in saliva work on the sensitive skin on the lips and causes them to chap.

Smoking - The natural oil from the lips is lost due to smoking

Dry weather - Living in a dry place can make your skin parched and craving for hydration. It is essential to get enough water to keep your skin and lips adequately hydrated.

Outdoors - The sun and wind also have a drying effect on your skin and lips. Sunburn can also cause chapping.

Vitamin deficiencies - Deficiency of riboflavin or other Vitamin B group or iron can lead to chapped lips.

Other causes - Allergic reaction to cosmetics such as lipstick or lip gloss. Ill-fitting dentures and lip biting can lead to chapping of lips. A diet lacking in essential fatty acids can also lead to chapped and dry lips.

Acne: Facts

How Much do you know about Acne??? Have breakouts?? Better Read this!

Acne - Know These Facts About Acne

Some medications such as some cortisones, anti-tuberculosis drugs and anti-epileptic drugs can cause acne. If you get acne after taking a medicine, consult your doctor.

If you find that a food makes your acne worse, stop eating that food. Some people feel that they get acne due to milk intake. Until now conclusive relation has been established between acne and food. Avoid food that you suspect may be causing acne or making it worse.

Frequent washing of the acne-affected skin does not help. Instead, it adversely affects acne. Washing twice a day is enough. Contrary to popular belief, dirt does not cause acne. The black color of blackheads is due to oxidized sebum.

Vitamin A:
Vitamin A does not treat acne. If you take excessive vitamin A, you may get adverse side effects. Retinoids (derivatives of vitamin A) are used topically and orally to treat acne.

Acne can be hereditary. If your parents had acne, you may be more prone to it.

Hormonal Changes:
Hormonal changes bring on acne. Androgen hormones are responsible for excess production of sebum in both men and women.Women can have acne outbreaks during menstruation and pregnancy when rapid changes occur in hormones.

Acne-Like Conditions:
Some conditions such as rosacea, keratosis pilaris, perioral dermatitis look like acne. Improper diagnosis may delay the correct treatment.

Chapped Lips - Dry Lips

A beautiful smile lights up a day. It makes your face more beautiful and lively. Your lips are the most important and exquisitely sensitive part of your body. And therefore you have to take special care of your lips. Soft and smooth lips figure among the foremost indicators of physical beauty. The skin on lips lack oil glands; hence they tend to get dry and cracked easily. You have to take special care of your lips to maintain its requisite moisture level. Your lips need special attention during winter.

We all more or less suffer from dry and chapped lips, especially during the winter months. Your lips are very sensitive to sun, dry indoor climate, wind and cold weather. Since our lips don't produce fat, they get dry and chapped. That's why you should apply fat during the day. Chapped lips can be a sign of fever or bronchitis, but may also be caused by lack of fluid. You should drink enough water during the day, up to two liters per day. Coffee is dehydrating, so don't count the coffee into the two liters.

Lips are one of the most exposed areas of our skin. Lips have an extremely thin outer layer and few oil-producing glands, which can lead to excessive dryness. They also contain very little melanin and, without protection, can quickly become burnt. The sun can also impact the collagen in your lips. Collagen is a protein that prevents wrinkle development around the lips. Constant exposure to the sun can lead to undesirable and premature aging. And remember, the sun can be just as harmful during the winter months as it is during the summer months. The most important step you can take to achieving the healthiest lips ever is to protect them from the sun. The best protection against sun damage is a water resistant lip balm that keeps lips moist and has an SPF of 15 percent or higher. Extreme weather can also lead to chapped and flaking lips.
