About Beauty Product Packaging

  • No Comments

Every single month a fresh new product launch takes the industry by storm. We have an obsession with skincare items and our cabinets are now spilling with dozens of half used bottoms. We’re always waiting for the next great thing that claims miracles to stock on our shelves. There isn’t just dry, oily, and sensitive skin types this day in age. Nope, those terms are merely at the top of the pyramid of skin care products.

Extensive studies are conducted in order to zone in on key specific areas you want to focus on. Needs are tailored to suit very distinct results. Finding products that actually work can be a bit of chore, because finding that gem of an item takes leg work.

Before I go any further let me just say, expensive does not always define good.

1. Look for items with a short ingredient list.
Federal law states that ingredient lists must start with the ingredient that is of the highest concentration followed down to the lowest. If you’re searching for one particular ingredient then take a look at the list and see where it falls. If it’s way at the bottom the likelihood of it actually being effective is no likely. The other problem with using an abundance of substances is the concentration of individual amounts reduces. Ingredients are getting lost amongst each other.

2. If you can’t read the ingredient then you might want to skip it.
We’re not all chemistry majors. We put so many chemicals on our skin it’s almost scary. After you complete the skincare regime, make-up application, and hair prep women have applied over 20 different chemicals and you haven’t left the house!

3. Industry PHRASES TO tempt YOU
Common words used on packaging like “Hypoallergenic”, “100% Natural”, “Sensitive for all skin Types”, etc are used as a marketing strategy. The FDA (Foods and Drug Association) has passed none. Be aware they are all sneaky marketing moves created by the beauty industry.

4 ‘ACTIVE’ INGREDIENT
All items include at the least 1 or two substances are the primary reason a product does what it claims to achieve. The inactive substances are just there to help, not interfere, with its effectiveness. Some natural skin care products contain 90% of active ingredient with a mere 10% a make-up of the inactive ingredients. As an example, in case you’re looking for a solution to deal with acne, you might search for items that contain salicylic acid, or benzoyl peroxide. If you’re searching for a normal skin option try out green tea, lavender oil, or Vitamin E.

5. Verify EXPIRATION DATES
It’s not likely reputable stores will carry expired products, but you’ll just want to double check before buying. For the most part companies manage the inventory with sales reps that travel to stores on a regular basis. If you’re buying natural merchandise remember that they will expire much sooner than chemical based products. Preservatives are usually added to chemical based products, which gives them a longer shelf life.

If you decide to take the step over to the world of natural beauty products you will probably find at least 1/3 of your cabinet space frees up. This is because most natural products are multi-purpose. For instance, I use jojoba oil as a moisturizer, but can also use it to remove my eye make-up. With most oils (like Coconut oil) they can be used over your entire body, as well as the face. Just as a side note, Coconut Oil is also a great sun tan lotion.

All About Beauty

Beauty is not skin deep. It’s attitude that separates the beauty from the crowd. “Looking at beauty in the world, is the first step of purifying the mind.” The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the figure that she carries, or the way she combs her hair. The beauty of a woman is seen in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides. True beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul. A woman whose smile is open and whose expression is glad has a kind of beauty no matter what she wears. All women are beautiful, regardless of their looks. You just need to touch their soul with respect and appreciation for their inner beauty and you will be rewarded with joy. The heart is way more important than the package.

I love natural beauty, and I think it’s your best look, but I think makeup as an artist is so trans-formative. I would never like to endorse a fairness cream. I believe in natural beauty.

True beauty can’t shine through make-up. Many of us can’t even imagine our life without makeup. It sounds strange and even scary for many girls, thanks to media popularization of unrealistic beauty standards. To be beautiful without makeup?! Is it even possible?!

For many of us it would be a big nonsense even to go to a supermarket with no makeup on.

Media often forces us to believe that a woman with no makeup on can’t actually look somewhat attractive or beautiful.

If someone wants to live a makeup-free life, or at least to be able to have makeup-free days, then it makes sense to put a little bit more effort into caring about the natural beauty of your face, hair and body.

1) Feel beautiful (even without makeup)
Yes, first step to natural, makeup-free beauty is connected with your inner perception of yourself – your self image. If a girl considers herself beautiful and is able to accept herself totally and unconditionally, then the whole world will feel the same about her. Yes, it’s that simple!
But if you don’t feel comfortable and confident about yourself with no makeup on, try to adapt the new ‘natural’ image gradually.

2) Your skin is your everything!
If you decide to lead a makeup-free life, it doesn’t mean that you need to completely let go of all skin care products. Many skin problems are actually related to the excessive use of makeup; skin tone becomes uneven because of the reaction of your body on a foundation, concealer or blush. If skin problems persist, get a professional advice of a dermatologist; it’s better to treat the problem straight away, than to put it on hold into a waiting box. Some other tips for the beauty of your skin include: use facial masks 2 or 3 times a week (choose masks according to your skin type), and exfoliate your skin regularly (we are not only talking about exfoliating your facial skin, exfoliate your whole body.

3) Healthy eating and water
Good food is important not only for the beauty of our skin, but also for the overall health of our body.

We are what we eat, therefore healthy and balanced diet should be our faithful, lifelong friend.

Make sure you eat fresh fruits and vegetables every day, as well as healthy fats and proteins; these are so important for our beauty.

And, of course, our best friend is water! Try to drink about 8 glasses of water a day and also treat yourself with a green or white tea from time to time, because these are rich in antioxidants and will help your skin look fresh and young for a very long time, even without makeup.

4) Smile and love yourself
Smile will instantly help you to feel and look pretty, even if you don’t have any makeup on!

As Audrey Hepburn once said: “The prettiest girl is the happiest one!” Smile every time you look in the mirror, smile to people you see on the street and, in general, let smile be your favorite accessory – you will see how the whole world will start smiling back at you!

Love yourself. Accept yourself fully and completely. Love the way you look with or without makeup, because you are truly unique and beautiful! Remember it!

5) What about your hair?
If you want to look pretty with no makeup on – it’s important to take a good care of your hair and keep your hair color close to natural.

Try to keep your hair in great condition by using right hair care products that are suitable for your hair type, and do hair masks and oil treatments regularly. Nothing can be more beautiful than silky and shiny locks!

The beauty product industry has been very popular with women who look for the latest products to improve their appearance. New products are introduced almost every day. They provide a steady stream of conversations about which product has the magic ingredient that creates beauty, improves health and produces long life.

Does the debate really hold some truth? It’s time to consider and ponder.

1. It’s not that harmful

In the present world, you need to do makeup the right way. Be it for parties, offices or get-together, women apply makeup all the time. We have come a long way since the times when skin care products had ingredients like aniline dyer used for coloring lashes that had serious side effects, which included blindness. Today, it’s not the same.

2. It needs to be safeguarded

It’s really very important that strong laws are passed so that the makeup and cosmetics industry is well-regulated. This includes monitoring and controlling manufacturing, to the kind of material these beauty products are made up of and studying whether they have any side-effects. Proper regulations can help.

3. The labelling

The label marked on the beauty and makeup products is very important as it tells you about the ingredients the product. Many times, if you are allergic or hypersensitive to a component you won’t use it. So, it’s important to read it carefully before buying it so that it suits you and it is safe.

4. Phthalate’s?

However, the quantity used is so minimal it hasn’t shown any negative effects at all when tested. So, it doesn’t make cosmetics harmful and can be used as much as reasonably considered save by your doctor.

What You Should Know About Beauty

How far would you go in order to look younger?

Would you have stem cells, harvested from foetal tissue injected into your body, in order to make your body younger? The theory behind this is that the stem cells would seek out damaged or dead cells in your body and replace them, regenerating your body from within. They also release growth factors that stimulate your body to repair itself more efficiently.

For one thing, this industry (stem cell injections) is not regulated. What if things go wrong? What if the cells injected are genetically incompatible with the recipient and some disease develops instead. What if you get an allergic reaction to the proteins in the injected cells? How safe is it?

By the way, where do these stem cells come from? From the placenta of newborn foetuses, or from aborted foetuses? Are the stem cells from foetuses that impoverished women were paid to carry, in order to harvest the foetus for 8 to 12 weeks, after which the foetus is harvested for stem cell injections?

Stem cell research has many uses. Mainly for more serious medical conditions like spinal cord injuries, juvenile diabetes and Parkinsons disease, among many incurable conditions. Some people feel that its use in beauty is frivolous when so many people are suffering from very real, incurable diseases.

Embryonic stem cells come from human embryos that are still clumps of cells. These embryonic stem cells can become any type of cell in the body, in limitless quantities. These are the most promising stem cells used in research, in the search of cures for otherwise incurable diseases or conditions.

Adult stem cells which are already tissue specific can make one or two types of cells and only in limited quantities. These are currently used to treat leukemia and some blood disorders.

A less controversial, yet rejuvenating alternative, is the use of placental cells for beauty treatments. These are harvested from the discarded placenta of newborn fetuses, hence no fetus is killed in order to obtain these cells.

The use of placental cells in beauty has been around for years. Plazan skincare [http://www.getyouthful.com/Plazan-Skincare.htm] uses extracts from the otherwise discarded placenta or afterbirth of newborn babies. It is a case of waste not want not. The placenta is rich in growth factors,DNA, RNA amino acids, peptides, vitamins and basically everything your cells need for rejuvenation. Celebs like J.Lo credit plazan for their youthful skin.

About Beauty Clinics

Many beauty clinics these days offer more than just waxing and facials. Non-invasive treatments can remove uneven pigmentation in the skin, spider veins and unwanted hair, or even plump your lips and reduce wrinkles. The key is finding the right clinic for you, and we’re here to show you how to do just that.

Types of beauty and cosmetic clinics

There’s a big difference between a beauty clinic that offers the usual treatments, such as facials, body wraps and scrubs and hair removal, and cosmetic clinics, which offer more permanent solutions. For one, the therapists are trained differently, and many of the treatments in the traditional beauty clinics, while very enjoyable, offer only fleeting benefits.

Cosmetic clinics, on the other hand, offer a range of permanent treatments that enhance not only health but also beauty. These include laser treatments, so the staff must be fully trained to use the equipment.

Laser treatments are increasingly popular because they offer a safe and cost effective way to enhance beauty in a myriad of ways: spider veins can be permanently removed without surgery and minimal discomfort, freckles and sun spots can be removed, and hair in almost any part of the body can be permanently reduced.

Cosmetic clinics also offer a range of other treatments, including micro dermabrasion, and lip enhancement and wrinkle injections. Again, staff need to be fully trained in order to perform these.

How to choose the right cosmetic clinic

A good cosmetic clinic that performs any of the above procedures will have a staff of registered nurses. They are there to ensure all of the procedures are performed correctly, administer any anaesthetic if needed and assess whether or not you are suitable for the treatments. If they are going to operate a laser, they should also have Laser Safety Officer Accreditation, along with full tertiary qualifications.

Aside from the important credentials, it’s also important that the clinic have a team of friendly staff that are on hand to answer any of your questions or concerns. A good clinic will also ensure good follow up.

Information on the services offered by cosmetic clinics

Any clinic that is performing injections, laser therapy and other more complicated procedures should have readily available information on all their services offered. When looking for a clinic, make sure they have a website with up-to-date information. If you don’t have access to the Internet, make sure they have brochures that cover all of your questions and staff that are on hand to answer any others you might have.

Lastly, make sure they have information on the accreditation of their staff, and the possible complications that might be associated with each treatment. While many of them are completely safe, it still helps to be informed about all aspects of your treatment.
