Special Sub-Topic: "Make Me Beautiful" Part 1
|If a product is said to be hypoallergenic, what is it least likely to do?|
Cause an allergic reaction. However, this does not mean that the product is 100% guaranteed not to cause you a reaction. Everyone's skin is different after all!
|Humectants are often found in many beauty products. What do they do?|
Attract moisture to the skin from the air. But it is also a good idea to use a moisturiser designed for your skin underneath your general make-up to give your skin a little extra boost. Apply the moisturiser about 5 minutes before you apply your foundation in order to get your skin hydrated. This will also help make your foundation last longer.
|Coenzyme Q10 is found in every cell of our bodies. This nutrient is particularly good at what?|
Getting rid of wrinkles. And if it doesn't work, there's always botox!
|Essential oils are commonly used in aromatherapy and are plant oils that are used as ingredients for products as well as to scent them. Lavender is an essential oil and is commonly used in skin creams. Why?|
Because it soothes irritation. You can also spray lavender mist on your pillow before going to bed as it is said to help you sleep.
|Aqua is usually the number one ingredient in most products. It has a more common, everyday name and is vital for healthy skin. What is it?|
Water. Drink 6 to 8 pints a day to keep your skin glowing and flush your body of all impurities.
|Antioxidants such as Vitamin A, C and E help the skin by neutralizing molecules called free radicals, which do what?|
Destroy skin cells. These particular vitamins can be found in rich fruits such as kiwi or oranges or can be taken in tablet form.
|Which of the following two products are botanicals, which are believed to have healing or regenerating powers on the skin?|
Aloe vera and ginseng. Ideal to give your skin a healthy boost and glow, aloe vera and ginseng gives your skin a freshened feel, while making your skin feel all nice and tingly!
|What useful job do lipsomes do?|
Deliver vitamins deep into your skin. This is ideal as not everyone has the time to take care of their skin as well as they should.
|If a product is said to contain non-comedogenics, it will be less likely to do what?|
Block pores. Always remember to remove your make up before you go to bed. Neglecting to do so will lead to a build up of make-up in your pores, which will lead to a build up of oil, which will lead to a build up of bacteria, which will lead to a build up of spots! Think of the clean up! Eewwww!
|Retinols are another word for products made from what?|
Vitamin A. It's definitely a good idea to take a bunch of vitamins at least once a day. Although don't just walk into any chemists and pick up a bunch of vitamins, just because I told you too! If you're not sure which ones to go for, it's a good idea to ask!
