What is Lipstick Made Of?

Most lipsticks consist of a fatty base, to ensure that the product stays firm and solid but is easily spread over the lips, and color provided by pigments or dyes. Manufacturers put a lot of time, effort and money into making sure that their products are soft enough to cover the lips smoothly and with the minimum of pressure, do not fade too quickly and stay put while the owner of the lips does other things like eating, drinking, smoking or kissing. Manufacturers also test lipsticks for toxicity, since the product is often swallowed.

Although most lipsticks are sold in stick form you can buy lipsticks which are applied with a brush. This is slightly more time-consuming than using an ordinary lipstick but it is a technique favored by make-up experts and models who believe it produces a more precise and pleasing finish.

Lipstick colors vary in different lights so when choosing a color try to select it in the light thatyou11 be wearing it in: if, for example, you want a lipstick to wear under fluorescent light tryout lipsticks under fluorescent light. When a lipstick goes blue on your lips, by the way, it usually means that the color has begun to wear off.

If you suffer from dry, sore or chapped lips, use an ordinary moisturizer before you put lipstick on.

Tips and Guidelines for Skin Bleach

Bleach is a substance used to lighten color. Bleaches are most commonly used on the hair and the bleaching ingredient is usually hydrogen peroxide. This strips color from the hair fairly effectively but it can be dangerous if used without due care. Ideally it should only be handled by a skilled, professional hairdresser.

More recently, skin bleaches have become available. For example, there are products containing hydroquinone, a powerful chemical with the ability to remove pigmentation from the skin. This chemical is so powerful that it can actually turn dark skins white. Products containing this ingredient are sometimes used for the treatment of skin blem­ishes, freckles and so on, but do not recommend its use for any such procedure. Hydroquinone is unpredictable and you could end up with permanent, patchy depigmentation.

What is Electrolysis Hair Removal?

An effective, efficient and permanent method of removing unwanted hair. Tiny needles are inserted into each hair follicle, one at a time, so the operator needs to be skilled. Once inside the follicle the needle destroys the hair root by using electricity to produce a chemical reaction. The main advantage with electrolysis is that it is usually permanent­ the hairs don't grow back again. The disadvantages are that it is slow, rather expensive and sometimes painful. Occasionally a skin reaction may be produced. Electro­lysis is probably best reserved for the most annoying or embarrassing excess hairs - such as those on the female face.
