Dr. Hauschka Translucent Makeup Foundation – Best Choice for Acne-Prone Skin

Dr. Hauscka Translucent Makeup Foundation_01

Since I was a teenager, I have always had a problem with my sensitive and acne-prone skin. I had a hard time choosing cosmetics and skincare products because I always broke out a lot. I have used various products to help calm my acne-prone skin, but those products only caused me disappointment.

Dr. Hauscka Translucent Makeup Foundation was strongly recommended by my friend. She also has a skin type that is prone to have acne breakouts, and she told me that this product helps to hide the deep pock marks and dark pimple scars on her chin and cheeks. I admit that I was not sure if I should buy this product at first since it costs $35.90 for a small 30 ml squeeze tube.

In addition, it is not readily available at our local drugstore or mall. However, I still decided to buy it because I was really desperate during that time, and I needed all the help that I can get. I bought it from Saffron Rouge, an online store, but I guess you can also get one from the brand’s website.

The consistency of the liquid foundation is thin and runny, which made me hesitant at first whether it would be able to help me with my dilemma or not. I squeezed a small amount the size of a nickel on my palm, and I then massaged it all over my face. You can use a cosmetic wedge sponge to blend the product completely, but I preferred to use my hands.

It was easy to blend because of its consistency. However, I was a bit dismayed with this foundation because I felt as if it was too drying. I also noticed that the coverage that it gave off was light. I still had to use a concealer after in order to hide the blemishes on my face.

In terms of the staying power, it was disappointing because it was gone only after two to three hours, and I had to reapply more than three times for the whole day. The only thing that I liked about this foundation is that it did not cause me to have pimple breakouts. I was thrilled because even though I used it on a daily basis, my facial skin stayed smooth and clear.

I am not sure whether I should still purchase and use Dr. Hauschka Translucent Makeup foundation or not because although it did not cause me to have pimple breakouts, the coverage was not sufficient to make me look like I have a flawless complexion. Nevertheless, I still recommend this product. You should give it a try, especially if you do not have many scars or blemishes on your face.

Ways to Get Rid of Acne

Acne is almost every teenager’s number one concern (other than which one of their classmates like them). That sinking feeling of waking up in the morning, looking into a mirror, and seeing that red bump on your face is horrible. There are plenty enough treatment kits out there that will make your head spin trying to choose one. Acne can hurt a teenager’s (and even adult’s) self esteem. While some people just wait out their acne days, others take a more aggressive stance towards it. So what are some ways to get rid of acne?

Wash your face constantly. I know this sounds like a no brainer, but really most people only wash their face once a day. Try to wash your face a few times a day. Even if all you are using is plain water, anything helps. Oil tends to build up on your face as the day progresses. That same oil gets down into your pores where bacteria is trapped. That’s what causes acne. So a quick trip to the bathroom during school class breaks to wash your face can really help. Girls may not want to do this because of make up, but this is a good tip for guys.

Steam Treatment_01

Wrap a hot towel around your face before you clean it. Steam and hot water opens up the pores allowing you to get in their and clean the bacteria out of them. So at night, before you use that face wash, quickly water your face down, then take a hot damp towel and wrap it around your face for 5-10 minutes. After that, then proceed to use whatever face wash you like to use. It will be more effective that way.

Use non oil based lotions. You can find many great non oil based lotions at your local stores or malls. A lot of lotions that have oil in them tend to encourage the bacteria growth and entrapment in your face. Using non oil based lotions greatly reduces the chances of getting lotion caused acne while still moisturizing your face.

Relax. That’s right, take some stress out of your life. Most acne in teenagers is caused because of hormonal changes, but stress can also cause acne as well. With all the tests, homework, studying, extra school activities, and daily life worries, it just adds to the mix. So after all the important things are done in your day, take time to watch a comedy, or take up a hobby. Anything that will reduce stress.

Acne is a very real part of a teenager’s life. Sometimes it’s just one of those things you need to get used to, but if you can fight it, then why not? Hopefully some of these tips helped and inspired some ideas of your own.

Homemade, Earth-Friendly Wrinkle Cream Recipe

Wrinkles_01

Do you want to look younger without forking out a ton of dough on high priced commercial products? You can make natural wrinkle cream at home without placing harsh chemicals on your face or garnering yet another wasteful plastic container. Wrinkle cream recipes typically include pure plant oils to retard the appearance of wrinkles and promote cell regeneration. Eye cream recipes are safe enough to be used by contact wearers, just apply the cream after your contacts are in, or 15 minutes later to allow the cream to dry thoroughly.

A trip to the local grocery or hobby store and common household tools are required to begin an earth-friendly beauty regimen. Make sure to apply the cream to your face with clean fingers or a spatula. Any particles which are hiding under your fingernails could wind up inside your jar of cream and build bacteria.

Many of us spend countless hours in front of a computer screen during our typical workday. To help your eyes relax and retard the impression of existing wrinkles, get into the habit of glancing out a window or into the distance multiple times a day. By flexing various eye muscles when looking away from the screen after a long period of time, the pressure on all of the eye muscles is decreased.

Wrinkle Cream Recipe Ingredients

3 teaspoons of jojoba oil
1 teaspoon of beeswax
3 teaspoons of apricot kernel oil
5 drops of carrot seed essential oil
5 teaspoons of rose water
One-fourth of a teaspoon of borax

Ingredients_01

Step 1

Combine the beeswax, jojoba oil and apricot kernel oil into a small pan over low heat. Remove from heat and stir after approximately 3 minutes – do not simmer.

Step 2

Heat the rose water in a different saucepan on low heat while adding the borax. You can remove the pan from the heat once you have stirred the borax, dissolving it into the rose water.

Step 3

Set the pan which contains the wax and oil mixture into a sink filled half-way full with ice. Use a wire whisk to stir the mixture while slowly drizzling the borax and rose water mixture into the iced saucepan. The mixture will begin to resemble a typical cream after a minute or two of mixing.

Step 4

Once the cream is cool to the touch, add the drops of carrot seed oil into the pan. You should have approximately enough natural wrinkle cream to fill a two-ounce jar. Baby food jars make excellent storage containers for homemade wrinkle cream. The mixture will keep for approximately a week if stored at room temperature or two months when refrigerated.
