    Is Collagen the Secret to Healthy and Youthful Skin?

    You must be quite aware of the popularity that collagen has in the health industry and the claims that it makes. This article strives to let you know everything that you need to know regarding it being a “magical product”.


    What is collagen?

    Let me start off by telling that collagen is one of the most abundant forms of protein present in the human body and is responsible for:

    • keeping your muscles and bones together
    • enabling your joints and tendons to maintain their structure
    • improving the elasticity of your skin
    • making your digestive system healthy

    The body produces collagen on a daily basis and it is present in muscles, skin, bones, blood, ligaments, and cartilage. It works as a concrete that holds your skin together by acting as a glue for your connective tissue. Read more

    Best Prep and Makeup Tips For Acne Prone Skin

    There’s a myth that people whose skin is prone to breakouts should steer clear of makeup. It makes sense in some ways. Cheaper makeups tend to be cakey, clogging pores, and leaving an oily residue on your skin. Plenty of even higher quality makeup uses silicon, which clogs pores, and natural oils, which can make your skin feel even worse. But it does make for an awful catch-22. If you’re self-conscious about your skin, and you can’t feel comfortable wearing makeup, then what can you do to stop feeling so negative about your skin?

    The good news is, the myth about acne and makeup seems to be just that. At least, wearing makeup doesn’t necessarily need to make acne any worse. So with that in mind, how can you choose products that will help your skin? The trick is to develop a cleansing routine that clears the oil from your skin and opens your pores, and choosing a foundation that goes on light and even. Read more

    The skin is the largest organ of the human body and it’s often the most damaged due to the many elements that it’s exposed to.

    The Tried And Tested Skin Care Hacks That Really Work

    beauty treatment, unhealthy skin, skin care hacks

    The overall health and appearance of your skin is a concern for men and women alike. Individuals who have problem skin and suffer frequent breakouts, blemishes or skin pigmentation often experience symptoms that are similar to depression, such as anxiety; low self-esteem, shame and a lack of desire for social situations. Having a healthy skin, on the other hand, can really boost your confidence and sense of well-being; not simply for the physical appearance of your skin, which is, of course, important to many people, but because problem skin is often physically uncomfortable or even painful.

    There are ways to deal with the symptoms of unhealthy skin that might manifest themselves in breakouts and acne, and people often turn to medicated creams or face washes. However, it is much safer and more effective to prevent and maintain healthy skin than it is to deal with it once it is causing you issues.

    Some of the best and simplest methods of maintaining healthy skin are listed below. Try these skin care hacks:

    The Charcoal Craze and How it Can Improve Your Complexion

    Charcoal skin care has taken over the world. Whether you’ve seen it on social media, news outlets or even just through a friend, chances are you’ve heard of it.

    But do you know what it does exactly? Well, feat not, we’re diving head first into the latest skin care craze to sweep the nation. 


    How Does a Charcoal Face Mask Work?

    We won’t bore you with scientific stuff, but in short the toxins in your skin stick to the activated charcoal, making it an excellent detoxifier.

    Alongside this, it doesn’t add a bunch of nasty chemicals to your face either, meaning your silky smooth skin won’t have its newly cleansed pores filled with anything unnatural.



    What Can Charcoal Do for Your Skin?

    It Purifies Your Pores
    Pores are an everyday struggle. In modern times it’s impossible to avoid chemicals that clog up your skin and your pores in the process.
    Activated charcoal binds to your pores and basically yanks out anything that may be congesting them.
    Own That Oily Skin
    Oily skin is annoying. Just a little bit of too much moisturizer and suddenly you’re back where you started, or not enough and it ends up being dry.
    Applying some activated charcoal will help alleviate your oily skin problems by literally pulling the excess oil away from your face.
    Alleviate That Acne
    Acne is a constant, unyielding pain in the behind, and chances are if you’re an acne sufferer you’ve tried anything and everything to try and get rid.
    Well, if you’re wondering what you can do next, why not try out some activated charcoal? The slightly gritty texture can help exfoliate your skin, while the oil and pore removing features can help sort out the rest.
    If you’re reluctant to use it as an all over treatment, try applying to individual areas as it can be just as effective.
    Deep Cleanse Your Skin
    Finally, activated charcoal can be used simply as the refreshing cleanse that your skin needs and deserves.

    We expose our faces to so many chemicals on a daily basis that we owe it to ourselves to do a deep clean every now and again, and what a better way than with an all-natural product?

    And that’s exactly why you should jump on board this latest phenomenon! All natural, chemical free and easy to get your hands on.

    Palladio Rice Powder Review

    palladio rice powder
    Palladio Rice Powder
    Having combination or oily skin can be a serious problem while wearing makeup if the right product is not being used your makeup will start to melt throughout the day which will make it look less presentable. Just imagine if you had done a dewy look and you start sweating before the end of the day. Blotting paper does not do much, and sometimes it even makes matters worse. For long-lasting foundation always moisturize and apply a pea-size dot of a lightweight, oil-free primer to your face before applying concealer, foundation and powder. Another must have in my beauty stash that I would like to recommend is the Palladio Rice Powder, it offers an incredible coverage and it keeps my skin oil free throughout the day, especially my t-zone area since I have combination skin. It also helps to set my makeup right throughout the day, whenever I use rice powder I don’t necessarily need to do any touch-ups.

    The Palladio Rice Powder comes in a square shaped container at an estimated size of 2×2 inches. A tape is attached to the lid, so it opens like a compact. The entire lid can be removed since it is just attached by a tape.

    The Palladio Rice Powder is known for its oil-absorbing benefits and its ability to help makeup last longer while leaving a silky finish to the skin. Rice Powder is the refined starch from rice, known as Oryza Sativa, it does not cause breakouts nor does it irritates sensitive pores. The power of rice has been used for generations in the ancient art of Ayurveda, a holistic healing practice that helps to soothe inflamed skin. It has been used by Asian women in their facial makeup and to wash their skin since the 16th century. As you can see on the packaging there is an Asian looking lady drawn on the lid wearing a Chinese dress and an oldies perm. Palladio Rice Powder is considered as a rich emollient skin treatment. Palladio Rice Powder does not contain harsh chemicals, so it will not irritate the skin or cause breakout unless you are allergic to the product.

    The Palladio Rice Powder has this scent of talc that is used in baby powder, the scent is not too overpowering but it smells old fashion. Palladio Rice Powder can be used alone or to set makeup, I preferably use it after I apply concealer and prior foundation application, since the powder doesn’t have any color and I rather to use a colored powder to set my foundation but I will dust a little across my nose or the entire t-zone area if needed. The Palladio Rice Powder helps to control shine/reduce oil, so it will create a matte finish once applied.

    We all know that setting/finishing powder can become messy when they are being used from a sifter jar. To avoid this problem when using the Palladio Rice Powder it is advised not to remove the entire sticker from the sifter as this will help to control the amount of powder that comes at once through the holes. Peel a small section of the sticker and cut or poke holes in the sticker that covers the sifter area.

    palladio rice powder ingredients

    The Palladio Rice Powder is very inexpensive and for the price that you pay; you get a lot of product in the container despite it being relatively small, the loose powder supply seems endless, it will last you up to six months to a year even if you use it daily.

    Use a light hand when applying the Rice Powder to your skin, a little goes a long way.

    I wish this rice powder also came in a pressed powder format.
