Detox Your Skin With Activated Charcoal

If you have oily, acne-prone and combination skin, you may or may not know that activated charcoal carries a gamut of benefits; reason being, it does a great job of purging impurities, clearing out congested pores and getting rid of pollutants. Activated charcoal simply means that it was heated and/or processed to increase its adsorptive capability. By definition, adsorption happens when molecule(s) adhere to the surface. So using chemistry's simplistic parallelism, imagine all the dirt and gunk adhering to the adsorbent, charcoal that is. I had the opportunity to try some products (with activated charcoal) from derma|e, a natural skincare company with surprisingly affordable products to boot. Scroll down for full details!

Anti-Aging Makeup Tricks

What is makeup for a certain age? if we're talking 40+, I'd say stick with light coverage and dewy finish if you have normal to dry skin. Unless you are attending a red carpet event which requires heavy-duty makeup, tinted makeup with built-in sun protection and hydration is the way to go. The logic is simple: the more you pile up crap, the more you emphasize wrinkles, sagging and enlarged pores. In contrast, barely-there makeup with strategic highlighting (read: nothing overboard) lifts the face and creates an illusion of youthful look. Yes, you are never too old to enjoy a little highlight. With that said, let me share with you two anti-aging makeup tricks using LifeCell products (1) dewy skin without looking extra greasy (2) plump lips you thought you never had.
