Three tips for treating an unsightly pimple

Just because you aren’t a teenager anymore doesn’t mean you’re never going to have a pimple again. When the unthinkable happens, you don’t have to run for your foundation and concealer to cover it up. There are a few tactics you can use to treat the actual zit and prevent it from leaving a nasty scar. Here are some tips you can take into account to speed up the healing process.

1. Wash your face twice a day
To keep your pores clean and prevent bacteria from agitating the pimple, it’s important to wash your face twice a day, according to Medical News Today. Use a mild soap to keep your skin from drying out.

2. Use benzoyl peroxide.
One ingredient you may see in your skincare products as you try to combat your pimple is benzoyl peroxide. This chemical can get rid of oil within pores and keep zits clean, promoting the healing process.

3. Go light on the makeup
To prevent future breakouts and give your pimple a better chance of subsiding, try not to cake on makeup, which can clog your pores and make it tough for your skin to breathe.

How to create a fabulous look for prom

Whether you’re looking for the perfect makeup for prom or you’re helping your daughter create a fabulous appearance, it can be challenging to hit it out of the park. Even if you have a collection of eyeshadow, mascara and eyeliner to choose from, it may be difficult to get started. With so many options, how do you know where to begin? states that to start, you can select a focal point on the face – the eyes or the lips. Whichever you choose, feel free to go all out when it comes to color and shimmer to create an eye-popping look. By focusing on one aspect of the face, you can avoid creating an appearance that’s too overwhelming – just because you have a fabulous collection of eyeshadow, lipstick and blush doesn’t mean you need to wear it all at once!

Next, don’t go crazy with foundation. Wearing too much can create a caked-on appearance that isn’t exactly appealing. Instead, use concealer to even out your skin tone, then finish it off with a sheer foundation to cement the look.

Finally, remember to have fun! Prom is the perfect excuse to go glam, so don’t be afraid to wear bright colors and metallics.

Young women can look glamorous with neutrals

Friday, August 27th, 2010

Young women can look glamorous with neutralsWhether they are getting ready for a relative’s wedding or for a homecoming dance, there are occasions when girls don a bit more makeup to achieve a stronger, more elegant look. However, dark, smoky eyes and bold red lips can look too mature on a young face.

So how should teenage gals add glamor to their appearance without looking like they spent the afternoon experimenting in their mothers’ makeup? The secret may not lie within the application process, but rather in the color palette selected.

Instead of harsh black or espresso-colored shadows and dark berry glosses, which can appear severe on young women, opt for deep neutral hues that will naturally emphasize features, similar to Emma Roberts’ makeup at the 2010 Teen Choice Awards.

The young starlet looked stunning, rocking smoldering golden eyeshadow and a glossy nude lip. “I played upon bronze hues…to bring forth an ingénue appeal,” makeup artist Dawn Broussard told

Products suited for young women beginning to wear makeup

Friday, July 30th, 2010

Products suited for young women beginning to wear makeupGiven the amount of products available, the world of cosmetics can be overwhelming to young women who are starting to wear makeup. However, unlike her experienced elders, a teenage girl doesn’t require as many products to achieve a flawless look.

According to CBS News, girls who are beginning to experiment with cosmetics should adopt the motto less is more. “Make-up should enhance the way your face naturally looks, not make you look like a completely different person,” the news source reports.

While foundation can be a lifesaver to more mature gals, teens should stick with a tinted moisturizer. Dermalogica Sheer Tint Moisture SPF 15 is lightweight, boasts UV protection and is available in three shades.

Many girls are tempted to experiment with boldly colored eye and lip products, and while that’s fine when playing around at home, the news outlet suggests that teens use sheer formulas on lids and lips when heading out.

What a Teenage Girl Wants?

Thursday, December 14th, 2006

Teenagers can be hard to shop for—especially teenage girls. There’s no telling what’s “hot” nowadays so, until you’re given a specific list, it can be near impossible to grab something “cool”.

Don’t even ponder the thought of picking out clothes, trends change in a sec these days and it’s more likely that your gift will be found under the bed than on the girl.

Want some safe gift selections? Here are some great ideas: You can never go wrong with gift certificates. Take note of “hot” stores and buy a gift card. If you’re unsure about which stores she likes, buy a mall gift certificate that she can use in any shop. Movie and restaurant gift certificates always make great gifts.

Bath and body products are always wanted. Try some good-smelling body washes or scrubs, or even some light and delicate facial products.

How about a makeover? Ask a professional makeup artist at any cosmetic counter to show her how to get just the right look! She’ll also learn how to apply makeup and how imperative skin care is.
