    • 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?

So with that in mind, how can you choose products that will help your skin?

    Benefits of Using a Face Primer

    Primer

    If you suffer from oily skin and acne, applying primer before the foundation is a necessity. Not only does primer contains waxes and polymers that provide a smooth canvas for flawless application, it also creates a bond between the skin and the foundation which helps the makeup to last all day without touch up or re-applying which is essential. The silica or silica type ingredient included in the primer also helps to control sheen.

    Benefits of Using a Face Primer

    Primers can help to reduce the look of large pores, filling in lines and preventing foundation from looking cakey. They also help with evening out the skin tone and making your makeup last much longer throughout the day. One of the main benefits of using a foundation makeup primer is that you will use less of your makeup. Instead of your foundation absorbing directly into your skin, the primer acts as a base, with the foundation adhering to the primer rather than the skin itself. With a primer reducing the imperfections of the skin’s surface, less product is required to cover those areas.

    How to Use a Primer?

    1.     Use a primer after applying moisturizer to the skin, then allow at least 5 minutes for the moisturizer to settle into the skin. 
    2.     Use a pea size amount of the primer and apply gently to the skin, paying attention to the t-zone section and under eye areas.  This will allow any under eye concealer to glide on smoothly.
    3.     Then apply your concealer, foundation, or face powder as you normally would.
