Some common misconceptions:
* Use a gentle astringent/toner to wipe away oil. Gathered’s Facial Toner is very mild.
* Don't be afraid to hide blemishes with flesh-tinted cover-ups or even foundation, as long as it is water based or oil-free.
*Steaming and "deep-cleaning" pores is useful, both alone and in addition to medical treatment, especially for people with "whiteheads" or "blackheads."
* *Here is some good advice from Dr. Lacie Mockros (Minser Chiropractic Clinic): “When treating acne you need to look at two places, the skin itself--keeping the skin free of bacteria, and treating the gut. Most often we talk about diet and cleaning that up. We discuss avoiding certain triggers such as chocolate, refined grains, foods that can cause sensitivities (eggs, soy, peanut, milk and potato). To also work on cleaning up the gut we would recommend the good bacteria (lactobacillus acidophilus). Starting an Omega-3 FA is also very beneficial to help the skin heal and reduce inflammation. It is said in Eastern Medicine that the skin reflects the gut, if your insides are full of junk your skin will be too!” Thanks, Dr. Mockros!

What does this say about body image? To me, it seemed like these girls and women were very confident in how they looked (0r didn't care?). I think being comfortable with your body image is a good thing but it wasn't very pleasing to my eyes to see very overweight women wearing skimpy little bikinis. I'd much rather see them wearing something that looks attractive on them.
Am I alone in this thinking? Should girls and women expose their fat rolls and cellulite for all to see or is a little cover-up a good thing? What's your opinion?

Look for ingredients such as shea,cocoa and mango butters, apricot kernel oil, vegetable glycerin and vitamin E. Biodegradable cleansers are good for your health and the environment.Soaps and skin care products with goat milk are good for many skin conditions including rashes, dry skin and eczema. (My niece has severe eczema and Gathered's Goat Milk Lotion is the only one she can use.)
Natural skin care products are really not hard to find. There are dozens of companies that produce good quality, natural skin care products and they can be found using Yahoo, MSN or Google without much difficulty. Yes, they can be expensive, but they are no more expensive than similar, products containing synthetic chemicals produced by major brands such as L’Oreal, Lancôme, and others.
In order to do a lot of good for your skin, you should choose ingredients that clean, moisturize, protect, and feed the skin. Natural skin care sure seems the way to go.

*Test on your lips. Most women try out lipstick on their hands, but that's often a different shade than your face. Head to a makeup counter to test directly on your lips, scraping a bit of color off with a Q-tip.
*When you wear red lipstick you probably should stay away from red nail polish. This is because your nails can clash with your lips, or they can create a look that is too harsh. To keep things feminine and soft you should try using a clear polish, a French manicure, or a neutral color on your nails.
