7 Powerful Winter Home Remedies For Acne

We are in the middle of winter (well in most countries, anyway) and if you have acne, you might have noticed that your acne can worsen during the winter months. Or if you never had acne, you’ve just seen your first pimples flare up on your skin, mostly on your face.

Many people notice a drastic change in their acne during the winter months, particularly when they live in areas where winters are quite harsh and cold. If you have light acne in summer, you will see that your acne will really liven up during the winter season. Also your acne scars will become much more visible, because the summer tan is gone so there is nothing to hide them.

Before panic sets in, you need to know the most important things you can do by yourself to keep your skin clear of acne, or at least how to avoid worsening it.

What is with winter and acne anyway?

During the winter, we are mostly indoors, which means we are exposed to dry air pretty much all the time. Well, except when we go out to the biting cold, so we’re then exposed to a sudden change in the air temperature. If you think you’re skin will not suffer due to these factors, you’re sadly mistaken. Our skin is the first contact with the outside word, so it is greatly affected by pretty much everything going on around us.

Here are some proven tips and acne home remedies that you can employ right away from the comfort of your home, to help you go through the winter unharmed.

  1. Put a vaporizer in your bedroom. This will moisture the already dry air due to the constant heaters. Also you can use a humidifier for better results. When I was a kid, and all these gadgets were not available, I remember my mom every night putting a bowl of water in the room. This kept the air moist and it really helped. I guess old home remedies are still some of the best, even if now we have these modern gadgets that do it faster and more effective.
  2. Open your windows for about 10-15 minutes every morning. This will allow to mix the air a bit, so the dry air leaves your room, being replaced with fresh air. Just make sure you have an extra blouse or a warm robe on you, so you don’t catch a cold. Some people are more sensitive than others, so make sure you know what works for you best.
  3. Drink lots of water to keep yourself hydrated. This tip is good all year around, not only for the winter months. However, you might feel less thirsty in winter (because heat promotes thirst stronger), so do not forget to drink your 7-10 glasses of water per day (at least).
  4. Change your skin cleaser. You might not be aware of it, but there are different cleansers for different types of weather. For example if you’re using cleansers containing benzoyl peroxide or salicylic acid, they are not the best in winter. Why? Because they dry your skin – which you definitely want to avoid in winter. Switch for the winter months to milder cleansers, such as Dove or Neutrogena, they’re available pretty much everywhere.
  5. Keep your skin moist by using moisturizer. If you haven’t used them yet, now it’s the time to start. Make sure you use a moisturizing gel or lotion, not cream.
  6. Cut back on using over the counter acne fighting medication, such as creams and lotions. They are great but definitely dry your skin (since one of the ways of fighting acne is to dry out the pimples). Winter is not the best time to have a dry skin, so I don’t say stop using these, but use them every second day instead of every day, at least for the next 1-2 months until the weather is improving. Note: if you have doctor prescribed treatments, make sure you do not change those, not at least without your doctor’s consent.
  7. You need a way to sweat out the toxines during the winter. This is maybe one of the most overlooked home remedy that you can employ in winter. Basically what happens is, during summer, with exercise, sports, jogging, you sweat. Then you drink plenty of water. Which means, through sweating you release all the toxins out of your body. However during the winter, people become more sedentary in nature, and exercise much less than in summer. So you need to find a way to release those accumulated toxins during the winter as well. Find a nearby sauna (unless you’re one of the lucky ones to have a sauna at home), go to a gym, but don’t stop exercising in winter.

There are much more things you can do, but if you adhere to these 7 only, you will get through winter with a clear, shiny face.

The Nature’s Special Creature: Woman

When God created the first man, Adam, HE used just a day in creating the man. Not only did God created Adam within that day, HE also created all other terrestrial animals (animals that live on land such as sheep, lion, elephants, birds of all kinds etc.) on the same day.

Hence, we are able to know the limited time during which God created Adam, the first man.

However, when it comes to the creation of the first woman, Eve, we are unable to know the extent of time that Father Nature spent in creating her. All we know was that the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam (Gen. 2:21) while creating Eve.

Hence, we are not able to quantify or verify the duration of Adam’s sleep but it must be for a very long time, maybe days, according to the description “deep sleep”.

If you compare a man’s physical body composition to that of a woman, you will discover that a woman’s body is extremely more complex, more resources-consuming in taking care of (resources like time-consuming, money-consuming, deep-research-consuming, energy-consuming etc.) This is because the Lord God himself took a long time in creating a woman; both the internal structure and external structure are core complex and more unique to that of a man, so a woman will usually take a long time, energy and whatever resources is available to her in taking good care of her body so as to maintain the already-set perfection.

This also shows that our Father Nature took a special time in creating the first woman, Eve, to make her more adorable to her husband, Adam.

Let’s look at the head of a woman, the long hair consumes a lot of money to make her more desirable to her male counterpart, the ear must be pierced and adorned with jeweled earrings, her face and her lips powdered and lipsticked respectively all these cosmetic preparation is deficient in a normal man. Man will just cut his hair low and have no need to powder his face and apply lipstick respectively.

Also, a woman’s body is so tender that it must be given special care. The breasts with relevant brassiere, the whole body creamed to make it more attractive (stretch-free, mark-free, dot-free etc.), the underside well taken care of before being covered with nice pants (e.g. the menstrual pad to cover the vagina opening during the menstrual period). All these preparation is not the ordained part of a man’s lifestyle.

The legs of a woman also speaks a lot about the woman; the legs must be well taken care of, nails well-polished, the whole feet well-manicured, sole of feet well maintained, marks not allowed on the legs/thighs so as not to disfigure/disorganise the woman’s natural beauty.

Most men don’t care about their appearance and may not bathe for days but a woman’s body is not designed for such.

Why? This is because a man was created along with other animals that don’t care about taking care of their body while the Eve, the first woman, was specially created without any form of interference from any quarter. So, when you see some men behaving like animals, don’t be amazed or offended. It’s from the grassroot!

Do you know that we never knew, because we were not informed, of the personal instructions and lectures God gave to Eve when she was created? We only knew of Adam’s instructions (Genesis 2: 15-17). Maybe God lectured the newly created beauty, Miss Eve, about how she must be taking good care of her body in order for her husband Mr. Adam to love her and desire her more and more! Pa Adam was deeply sleeping at the time, so we cannot really know the private instructions passed to Ma Eve.

While a man have only his stomach for food consumption, a woman’s internal structure consists of both stomach and uterus (which is designed by the Lord God baby creation).

I don’t really know the function of a man’s breast but I know a woman’s breast is the outlet of natural resources – milk – for the new-born baby as food. Also, the woman’s breast is a strong appellant for sexual arousal in her male counterparts.

While a man has his long penis and testis (inside scrotum) for urine and sperm release, a woman has a more complex vaginal components which are used for sexual performance, child birth, gateway to ovum fertilization, just to mention a few.

It is the fundamental duty of every woman to take care of her body, to make herself more beautiful and desirable, disease-free and completely healthy.

Father Nature (i.e. the Lord God) specifically designed a woman in a unique way far apart from her male counterparts, so a woman should make sure she helps in maintaining the divine design on her. She mustn’t neglect the divine efforts on her special body.

Your Simplified Guide to Natural Skincare

Our skin absorbs many things including chemicals. Considering the number of makeup and skincare products we use every day, it’s easy to understand the amount of chemicals that go in our pores. Over the years, regulatory bodies have approved the use of certain chemicals and parabens, at least in small quantities. However, researchers, skin experts, and dermatologists believe that there’s no substitute to natural skincare.

Understanding natural skincare

Natural skincare is all about using the most natural ingredients. This can be further divided into herbal, natural and organic segments. Now, every manufacturer has a unique way of developing products, and in many cases, the process is kept safe, like a well-guarded secret. Even the regulatory authorities don’t have a big say in this, barring giving a list of do’s and don’ts. So, what can you expect from natural skincare?

1. First things first, these products don’t have any form of chemical or preservatives that are harmful to the skin.

2. These are formulated with 100% natural products and ingredients. Please note that natural and organic does not always mean the same thing. We will discuss this in a bit.

3. Thirdly, the products are formulated in a particular country, as mentioned.

4. Also, a number of companies don’t use animal testing for natural products, which is a big plus.

How to choose natural products for the skin?

You would be happy to know that natural products are available in both skincare and makeup. However, the primary task is to find the right brand. Whether you are looking for a special homemade face mask or a massage cream, you need to check a few basics.

— Start with the label. A good manufacturer will ensure 100% transparency on their product label. You will find all the relevant details on the product packet or the sticker.

— Check the ingredients. This is equally important. You need to check if all the ingredients are natural and mentioned as required. Do not buy products that just mention the ‘Key Ingredients”.

— Check the brand. Is the brand reputable? Are they certified by any of the regulatory bodies or independent labs? If yes, you can definitely trust the company for their products.

— Natural or organic? By organic, it means that the ingredients are made without any additional fertilizers and chemicals. So yes, organic products are always better than just natural products. Check if the products are certified to be organic.

— Is the product formulated for sensitive skin? Most of the natural skin and makeup products are considered to be good for sensitive skin, but that’s an aspect you need to check.

Lastly, you need to check reviews. There are bloggers and other websites that review natural skincare products, and you can find a lot of amazing facts and details. Also, the first-hand experience from other users is always useful in comparing options. Not to forget, check the price. Since such products don’t have a lot of preservatives and chemicals, the costs are higher but are worth paying. Check online now and start shopping for your stash!

Revive Your Weave With Apple Cider Vinegar

We all know that apple cider vinegar has many remedies. If you’ve spent any time online, I’m sure you’ve come across the main uses from curing ailments to removing stains. What you may not know is that you can revive your weave with apple cider vinegar.

The key element in using apple cider vinegar (ACV) is it restores the pH balance that often gets out of whack in your hair when using chemicals and heating appliances. When this happens, you can bet your hair will go from fabulous to frightful in no time at all. Dull and frizzy, flat and matted – just plain messy and a horrible sight.

So how does ACV work on weaves you ask? Well, when you purchase high quality virgin hair the cuticles are intact and fully sealed. No chemicals have been used so the hair is nearly perfect. However, as soon as you start using shampoo, coloring, hot curlers, combs, and other chemicals and tools, the cuticles will begin to strip down until you have unmanageable hair that’s just sitting on top of your hair.

I’m sure you’ve been there – standing in the mirror with your weave looking a hot mess. It feels like you have a couple of inches of new growth, but it’s a weave. No girl, it shouldn’t be that way, so let me tell you how to fix it.

You see, ACV helps reseal the cuticles of your hair because the pH balance is lower than the pH balance in the weave. Using ACV and rinsing sort of brings the pH balance back to its normal level, thus rejuvenating your hair.

So how much apple cider vinegar do you need? Well, it is recommended you use three parts water to one part apple cider vinegar. Put hair in a large bowl and leave the hair in for.75 min. to one hour. If your hair is on your head, put it on and put a cap on top for the same amount of time.

When the time is up, rinse the ACV out and use a deep conditioner. Conditioning the hair plays a big role in the final outcome so please do not try to cut corners. A little time will save you the cost of buying new bundles, at least for this time.

When you’re done, you will find your hair is sleek, slick, and beautiful just like when you first got it.

The Ultimate Guide for a Makeup Noob

For a makeup beginner, choosing what to buy and start from can be really difficult and leaves a little room for experimenting. Especially now you need to look your best everyday, every time.

Gone are the days, when a simple lip gloss and a little khol was enough to go by day. It is said that Cleopatra bathed in goat’s milk and honey to look her best. We’re all aware of the ancient connection between women and beauty. No wonder the cosmetics and beauty industry is a multi-billion dollar enterprise! Now you need to look your best everyday, every time. The range of hair products, skin lotions, and cosmetics available today is mind boggling. Buying, maintaining and replenishing beauty products is an expensive affair. After all, vanity comes with a price tag. And all the available options can be overwhelming for a total beginner.

If you walk into a store like Sephora or Ulta and find yourself overwhelmed, it’s probably safe to say you’re quite new to the makeup world. For a beginner, makeup can be quite intimidating. Today there’s such a huge selection of products available which often makes newcomers feel pretty confused. “What does that do?” “What do I need this for?” The choice seems endless. And more often than not, you end up buying something that doesn’t work for you. Don’t worry. Makeup, like many things, involves trial and error and lots of practice, but a little help never hurts. We’ve compiled a “makeup starter kit” of affordable essentials that every newbie needs in order to fully dive into the realm of makeup.

Primer

A primer, while not always essential, will help your makeup go on smoothly and increase its longevity. When choosing a primer, it’s important to take your skin type into consideration. If you have dry skin, you’ll want something hydrating and brightening. If you have oily skin with larger pores, you’ll want something mattifying and blurring.

BB Cream/ Foundation

If you’re new to makeup, try out a BB cream before jumping into the realm of foundation. BB, or “beauty balm,” creams provide light coverage and don’t feel heavy like some foundations can. Overall, they’re a good way to allow your skin to get used to the feel of wearing makeup. Like primers, knowing your skin type is important when choosing a BB cream.

Concealer

Even if you’re hesitant about using face makeup for the first time, a concealer is a must. Concealers contain more pigment than foundation and allow you to cover up things like dark circles or any unwanted blemishes.

Powder

Powder is essential for locking in your makeup and making sure it won’t slip and slide around all day. If you have drier skin, you can usually get away without it but if you have combo/oily skin, it’s a must. The most important part of your face to set is the T-zone-the forehead, nose and chin-as this is the area that produces the most oil.

Bronzer

Bronzer allows you to fake that sunkissed glow all year round. It’s best to apply a warm shade in the shape of a “3” along the sides of your face, hitting your forehead, cheekbones, and jawline.

Blush

Blush, when applied correctly, adds life to your face. A good way to choose a perfect blush is to select a color that mimics your natural flush. Peachier tones tend to look best on those with warm skin, while pink shades flatter those with cool skin.

Highlighter

It’s not a necessary step, but if you want to achieve that gorgeous, lit-from-within glow, you’ll need a highlighter. Highlighters are light, shimmery champagne or golden toned powders or liquids

Brow Pencil

Your brows frame your face and can seriously change your entire look. That’s why it’s important to keep them looking groomed and neat.

Eyeshadow Primer

An eye primer is absolutely essential if you want your eyeshadows to look amazing all day. Eye primers prevent your eyeshadows from creasing, make them appear more vibrant, and help them go on smoothly and blend easily.

Neutral Eyeshadow Palette

Neutral eyeshadows are the most basic and essential thing a makeup beginner needs in their kit. In general, light shades should be applied to your lid, inner corner and brow bone, medium shades to the crease, and dark shades to the outer corner and lower lashline.

Eyeliner Pencil

Eyeliner pencils can intensify any look and really make your eyes pop. Black can be used to add a sultry and smokey effect to your look, brown is perfect for every day definition, and nude can be used in the waterline to really open up the eyes.

Liquid or Gel Eyeliner

A liquid or gel eyeliner will add drama and is the perfect product to take your look from day to night. The formula you choose is your preference, however they both take some practice.

Mascara

If you could only buy one product on this whole list, mascara should be it. It’s amazing what long, full lashes can do for your face. Applying a few generous coats of mascara to both your upper and lower lashes will open up your eyes, brighten up your face and make you look more awake.

Lip Liner

Lip liner is an excellent way to define your lips and increase the longevity of your lipstick.

Lipstick

For a makeup beginner, lipstick is probably the easiest way to really play with different colors and looks. There are a variety of finishes and shades to choose from, and really, it’s all about experimenting!

Lip Gloss

Lip Gloss is a great way to add color and shine to your lips without dealing with the maintenance of a lipstick.

Natural Acne Cures – 5 Healthy Foods That Cause Acne Breakouts

You can cure your skin problem with natural acne cures. There is no need to resort to expensive over-the-counter products. Did you know that there are extremely healthy foods that make acne worse? Your health-conscious diet could be causing your breakouts.

These are the most dangerous foods because they are hiding behind the mask of healthiness. If you are prone to acne breakouts you need to stay away from these bad healthy foods.

Bananas

Bananas are high in sugar. That’s why they are so delicious. They also are high potasium and some vitamins. They truly are a healthy food. But, because they are high in sugar they will cause an insulin surge which leads to inflammation and acne. If you are looking for natural acne cures, then stay away from bananas, or at least reduce your consumption.

Corn

Just like peas, corn is high in sugar and is therefore an enemy of clear skin, even though in many ways corn is healthy. One of these reasons corn is so delicious is because it is sweet. Corn is loaded with natural sugars which raise insulin levels thereby causing acne. Until you get through your acne stage, stay away from corn.

Dried Fruit

Most fruit, though not all, is safe if you eat just a piece at a time. Eating too much fruit will give you a blast of sugar which will set off the inflammation process leading to acne. Dried fruit is bad for acne because just about everything has been dried out of it except the sugar. Dried fruit is essentially a lump of sugar. Eating just a few pieces can give you a surge of sugar, thereby raising insulin and starting inflammation process. stay away from dried fruits.

Granola

Natural cures for acne, you may have noticed, involving reducing your consumption of sugar. Here’s another food to avoid due to sugar. Most people looking for a health breakfast option turn to granola. I do. Too bad it’s usually loaded with sugar. This truly healthy food will send your blood sugar to the skies, thereby releasing a blast of insulin and setting off the inflammation process leading to your new pimples in a day or two.

Cheese

Cheese is so delicious and healthy. Lots of calcium and vitamins makes this food a health food favorite. To bad it too sets off the inflammation process which causes us to break out with acne all over our faces.

Many think that using natural acne cures means not eating the foods you like. That is not completely true. First try reducing the intake of these kinds of foods until you see your skin clearing up. You may find that your body can handle a certain amount of these foods without causing breakouts.

Anti-Depressants And Acne – Is There A Connection?

Zoloft is an example of a medication for treatment of depression. It was approved by the Food and Drug administration in 1991 and was used since then to treat depression in depressive patients. It is classified as an anti-depressant of the selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor type (SSRI).

Zoloft was invented by two scientists from Pfizer namely Stephen Werner and William Dzomba. It is also known as sertraline. The drug can also be used for general anxiety disorder, binge eating disorder, and premature ejaculation. It is also claimed to be effective in the treatment of impulsive aggressive behavior of personality disordered patients.

What does it have to do with acne? According to research, Zoloft does not cause acne but hypersensitivity to the chemical content of the drug could. Perhaps, hypersensitivity to sertraline could cause cystic acne which may last for days and cause scars for months.

What can I Do to Solve the Problem?

Zoloft can be used along with topical medications for acne. Should you have acne apparently due to allergic reactions from the drug, you may use benzoyl peroxide which is a known topical acne treatment to minimize the acne inflammation.

Benzoyl peroxide dries the pimple with continuous application. Once the pimple is all dry, you may try to remove the scar with whitening agents like creams or lotions. These are very effective in lightening if not removing the scars.

Try not to resort to ingested medication during treatment with Zoloft as it might cause further problems or aggravate existing ones. Treatment of acne with oral medication may not be the best solution while the Zoloft regimen is ongoing.

What Are Other Possible Solutions?

While a patient is on medication with Zoloft, most doctors would recommend drinking a lot of water to help cleanse the body. Water helps in the circulation of blood in the system and helps drain out toxicities that may be introduced by drugs. Water has been known to clear the skin and make it more supple and it is also recommended while in treatment with sertraline.

Aside from keeping the skin clean from the inside by drinking lots of water, also keep it clean from the outside by regular washing with acne face wash (but do not overdo this as it can then become counterproductive). Use makeup minimally, if at all, as most makeup would be considered as foreign substances by the body and may cause unfavorable reactions.

What Else Could I Do?

To have a healthy skin, you need to have a healthy body. And to have a healthy body you need to have a healthy diet. Eat the right kinds of food and eat balanced meals. Have vegetables in the diet and carbohydrates as well as protein. It is necessary that you have a lot of fiber in the meal so that it would help wipe away the side effects of the drug.

Eating well is advisable because you need this too for maintaining your excellent body health. Eating healthy foods could keep your body in shape and help you maintain the good health of your skin. As they say, a healthy body shows through in the glow of healthy skin.

Any More Advice for Anyone Taking Zololf Who Also Has Acne?

It takes time to get used to the drug. The acne eruptions may be allergic reaction to the drug or hypersensitivity to sertraline. In some cases, the problem might go away as time goes by and the body gets used to the regimen. If the acne condition does not subside then you should have a good talk with your health care provider.

Say Hola to Mexican Acne Medications

At some point in their lives, everyone is touched by acne in shape or form or another. Those who do suffer from the skin condition do anything within their power to treat and cure it. Most of the time younger people in their teens and adolescent years develop acne, although it is possible for it to appear at any age whatsoever. It doesn’t matter what age or race you are, it can touch virtually anyone, especially those who do not take good care of themselves. The most common form is called acne vulgaris, which can usually be treated with simple over-the-counter medication found at your local drug store. However, there are many different types, including adult acne which usually appears on people who have had acne in their younger years and suffer from it as adults. If left untreated, it can also leave lifelong scars.

Since there is so much money to be made from the treatment of acne, scientists and companies around the world are constantly looking for an end-all-be-all cure for this terrible skin condition. Some of the different kinds of acne medications that are out there are homeopathic, ayurvedic, herbal (natural), and allopathetic. Since everyone’s skin is different in one way or another, everyone needs different types of treatments so none of these will work for everyone.

You may be surprised to learn that Mexico has most of the good acne medications that have been proven to have the best positive long-term effects in acne sufferers. Despite America’s amazing medicines and technologies, this third world country has the U.S beat as far as acne treatment goes. What Mexico has that the U.S lacks, is herbal, or all-natural, treatments that we don’t utilize in this country enough. After the use of the herbs to treat it was discovered in a medical college in Mexico, it gained popularity and word spread to the United States.

Penis Skin Care and Cortisone: Use Wisely

Penis skin is among the most delicate skin on the body, and therefore it is often prone to developing redness, rashes, and other irritations. In some cases, cortisone is recommended for similar skin conditions elsewhere on the body. But is using cortisone on penis skin part of appropriate penis care? Or can using cortisone damage that delicate manhood covering?

Penis skin

It’s understandable that penis skin is delicate. In the first place, it’s quite thin. This is so the supersensitive nerve endings that create those unique shivers of pleasure can be readily accessed. It also has to be flexible, capable of growing and shrinking, which is easier when the skin is thin and loose rather than thick and bunched. And, of course, most men keep the penis under wraps most of the time, rarely exposing it to sunlight or the elements, so it doesn’t “toughen up” naturally.

With all that in mind, it’s easy to see why penis skin can be sensitive to harsh chemicals or excessive friction.

Cortisone

Cortisone is a naturally occurring steroid hormone. It is also available in synthetic form and is often used in many over-the-counter and prescription creams. (It is also used in oral form for certain conditions.) These creams have many uses, but they most often help treat an inflammatory reaction, which in the case of penis skin may mean redness, swelling, rashing, etc. Cortisone is effective against inflammation because it suppresses the immune system.

When used properly (and under a doctor’s guidance), cortisone can be very effective. However, there can be side effects to cortisone use, especially if it is used improperly or in excess. (As with any medication, different people react differently to a treatment; what may be a perfectly tolerable amount of cortisone for Man A may be far too much for Man B.)

Oral cortisone is more likely to have serious side effects (e.g., diabetes, anxiety, insulin resistance, etc.) than application of cortisone in a topical cream form. However, there can be some penis skin issues related to using a cortisone-based cream on the penis. These include thinning of the penis skin, skin pigment changes and sometimes infection.

Effects

The body’s skin has a thin natural acid “mantle” as well as layers of fatty tissue. If cortisone is used at too high a dose (or sometimes at an appropriate dosage but for too extended a period of time), the cortisone eats away at these layers. Without the protection that they provide, the skin can thin out – which, ironically, makes less supple and pliable. This can lead to some discomfort when the expands for an erection.

More problematically, the acid layer and fatty tissue help provide protection against bacteria and germs. When these are eroded, it is easier for infections to occur.

Skin pigmentation changes are rarer and more likely to occur when cortisone is injected rather than applied topically. However, a man with very sensitive should be careful when using cortisone and monitor his penis for any signs of pigmentation change.

Consulting with a doctor, even when using over-the-counter cortisone, is advised, especially if using the product on the penis.

Whether using cortisone or not, men should take steps to keep their looking fantastic. Daily application of a top notch penis health crème (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin) is a superb way to maintain the organ’s health. Penis skin requires proper moisturization, so select a crème with both a high-end emollient (such as Shea butter) and a natural hydrator (such as vitamin E). Further skin protection can be provided if the crème includes a powerful antioxidant, such as alpha lipoic acid, to fight free radicals and help stay youthful and healthy.

Tips to Get The Most Out Of Your Mink Eyelashes

In this article, you will learn some amazing tips in order to keep your false lashes in the best condition. The advantage of doing so is that you will be able to use your mink eyelashes over and over again. In other words, their lifespan will go up. Unlike synthetic eyelashes, mink lashes are more beautiful. Aside from this, they are also more comfortable. So, it’s important for you to know how to take care of them and get the most out of your pair. Read on to know more.

1. You Should be Gentle

First of all, make sure you handle your mink lashes with lots of care. This is the best way of making your product last longer. When taking your eyelashes off, make sure you use your fingers for pushing down the band. It’s not a good idea to use something other than your fingers as this may cause problems. What you need to do is be gentle. Using too much force is not recommended either.

2. Don’t Use Excess products

Some women also like to use mascara. If you love to use mascara, we suggest that you use it on your natural eyelashes first. Once applied, let it sit for a couple of seconds to dry. Then you can apply it to your mink lashes. For the preservation of tapered-off and natural effect, this is the right way. Using too many excess products is not a good idea either.

3. The Removal Process

As soon as you are ready to remove the pink eyelashes, you should use a cotton swab and dip it in your makeup remover. Then you should dab the target area and wait for a couple of seconds to let the glue dissolve. Once it is dissolved, you may want to slowly bring it down from that area. Moreover, if you feel that the band is still on your skin, you should use a bit more of the makeup remover and follow the same steps once again. However, make sure you don’t peel them off. The removal process is very important. Therefore, make sure you get it done the right way.

4. Clean The band

After each use, we suggest that you remove the glue from the eyelash band. If you need help with the process of glue removal, we suggest that you try out tweezers. With the passage of time, it becomes harder to remove glue, especially if you don’t remove it right away. Therefore, don’t underestimate the importance of removing the glue completely from the band. After each use, the band should be properly cleaned. It should be done with care.

So, if you have been looking for a way to get the most out of your mink lashes, we suggest that you use these 4 tips. This way, you won’t have to buy eyelashes over and over again, and you will be able to save a good deal of money. Hopefully, you will find these tips helpful enough to get your job done.
