    Treating Adult Acne Without an Elaborate Skincare Routine

    Puberty is a nightmare for so many reasons, not least of which is the acne that inevitably comes with it. We all look forward to the day when our acne finally disappears, but what if it comes back in adulthood? Or worse, what if it never leaves? Some studies show that over 40 percent of men and women between the ages of 20 and 40 suffer from persistent acne.

    Rock Your Crown

    Rock Your Crown

    African American women have always taken pride in their crown, which is our hair. According to the website Hype Hair, which promotes the latest hair trends for women of color, states that black women "spend nearly nine times more than our non-Black counterparts on ethnic hair and beauty products. Add in $473 million in total hair care, $127 million grooming aids and $465 million in skin care preparations, and we spend a whopping $1.1 billion on beauty annually." Other beauty brands are taking notice and are creating products specifically for women of color. The hot comb created by Annie Malone and later improved my Madame CJ Walker, African America's first self-made millionaire, is a staple in women of color's homes for centuries and decades. The hot comb is equivalent to a man's shave kit. It's one of the many stages that reflect womanhood. It's a comb that lays flat on top of the stove, and it heats up and combs through your hair to straighten. It was the go-to product before the flatiron existed.

    Top 5 Cruelty-Free Facial Cleansers

    Top 5 Cruelty-Free Facial Cleansers

    I struggle so much with finding products that work best for and on my skin. I have combination skin, which means that I have both dry and oily skin. Not only do I have dry and oily skin, but I’m also very prone to acne and I get blackheads all the time. I have to find the right balance between hydrating my dry skin and trying to tame my oily skin, it’s not easy. Just last week I tried a face mask that said it was good for all skin types and it burned my skin; redness and it ripped off some of my skin. It was so sad, and I had some scabs around my eyes and cheeks because of it. Finding products that work and constantly changing up the routine is hard and annoying but once you find some products that work and your skin loves, there is no going back. Not all these products are going to work for you, but if your skin is as sensitive as mine, then I would recommend trying some of these products.

    Different Ways To Remedy Age Spots

    Age spots are small dark stains that appear on fair or light-colored skin and are mostly associated with aging. Also known as liver spots or solar lentigines, age spots can emerge on one's face, hands, shoulders, arms, and back. The common cause for age spots is the overproduction of a chemical called melanocytes, a melanin stimulator which causes darkening of the skin. Common in adults over the age of 50, these embarrassing blemishes can affect a person's self-esteem. Often mistaken for cancerous growths, these age spots are rather harmless. Many remedies exist to lighten or reduce the effect of these flaws.

    Saving Money in the Name of Makeup

    Saving Money in the Name of Makeup

    Makeup is such a great way to show your creativity and help build your confidence but most importantly it is fun with many different colors and products to use for every part of the face. Having this hobby of buying makeup can get very expensive, because high-end and low-end brands are always coming out with new products every day. It is an addiction buying new products every time brands come out with new makeup or skincare products because you are either attracted to the brand, packaging, formula or perhaps you want to support a YouTube influencer that has created a makeup palette. Financially it is not a good idea to always buy that makeup palette, or the under eye cream that just came out. If you are someone who struggles financially, but also want to try different makeup brands, I recommend a $10 makeup subscription box. If you are a beginner, and still learning what works best with your skin, the $10 one would be perfect because it usually comes with small sample sizes of makeup and skincare products and you can learn what works for you without having to spend so much money. If you are a die-hard makeup lover and have a bit of extra spending money, I would suggest the $21 subscription box because, you will get to try about five to six full size makeup and skincare products that you have or have never heard of with a value of over $100, and you can also get points and get some free samples just by leaving a review on a product. The best part about a subscription box is it feels like a gift every time you receive one in the mail. If you are not interested in waiting for the products in the mail, I have a solution for you. It’s the biggest secret of the makeup world. It is going to a store, but not your average Ulta Beauty or Sephora store. It’s going to your local Marshalls, T.J. Maxx, Ross or Burlington Coat Factory, they have lots of high-end brands like Too Faced, NARS, and Clinique that are not selling well, or companies that have over stocked. Most of the products there are well-known brands and will save you about 50% of your money shopping at any of these stores. Couple of tips I suggest when buying from these kinds of stores is to always check and see if anyone else used the makeup before, or if it is broken or unsealed. You will be able to tell right away once you open to see, always check before you buy the item to save you some time of having to return it later on. Check the clearance section and the lower shelves, because that’s where the good brands are hiding. Also the best makeup is always by the checkout line depending on which store. Shop around and remember to check the original price online while in the store, because what they have priced on the makeup product can be off by a couple of dollars, and you can see how much money you are really saving. Once you start shopping at Marshals or T.J. Maxx you will never go back to your normal store to buy any makeup product or skin care for full price. Because of this makeup secret not only will you stop spending so much money, you will save so much money, and feel a lot more comfortable buying so much makeup that you already love for such a better price without having to compromise the quality of the makeup product and your hard-earned money.
