Benefits of Mineral vs Chemical Sunscreen

  Choosing Your Sunscreen: The Benefits of Mineral & Chemical Looking for worry-free, fun in the sun for the whole family? Don’t forget your sunscreen! And whether you’re considering a mineral or chemical sunscreen, you can find plenty of options that are safe for use on your face and body, no matter what your skin color is. Both offer great sun protection and benefits, so it all comes down to preference. But maybe we should start with the basic difference between the two: Mineral Sunscreen Blocks Sunlight.  Apply it to your skin so it can act as a cover to deflect sunlight. And it works immediately upon application. Chemical Sunscreen Converts Sunlight.  You apply it to be absorbed into your skin, where it chemically changes UV rays into non-damaging heat. You’ll need to wait 30 minutes after application before sun exposure. Whichever sunscreen you choose, you’ll get the best results using it regularly and consistently. (You and yours will have more fun, too!)  For more info >&


  VEGAN SKINCARE The only thing that differs between ‘regular’ and vegan skincare is the ingredients.

Glycerin  – Traditionally made using animal fat, this moisturizing ingredient can be replaced by vegetable glycerin instead. Squalene  – This additive is often used for anti-aging produc


  Tips to Achieve Self-Empowerment If you’re striving to attain personal empowerment, focus on your drive, identify what you can control, and keep an objective, goal-oriented mindset. The following seven tips can help you achieve self-empowerment. Work to Have A Positive Attitude People who believe they control their own destiny — rather than giving in to external concepts such as fate, luck, or circumstance — are more likely to take charge of their future. Cultivate a positive attitude and outlook by evaluating your strengths and weaknesses, pursuing your passions, and trusting in your ability. Set attainable Goals Measurable, achievable goals are an important component of self-empowerment, and understanding how to set them can help you feel good about your achievements. If you want to run a marathon, start with smaller, increasing distances rather than trying to run 26.2 miles on day one. Your Circle of Friends Must be Positive People Laughter is contagious — and so are pessimism and

5 Home Remedies for Acne

1. Baking Soda One of the best home remedies for acne is baking soda. There are several reasons for this. First, it balances the pH level of the skin, which can help to reduce oil levels. Second, it acts as an exfoliator for your skin, removing dirt, makeup, and dead skin cells. You can use baking soda to wash your entire face to prevent acne, and you can also use it to spot-treat problem areas. To use as a cleaner, mix equal parts baking soda and water and gently scrub your entire face. To use it as a spot treatment, add a few drops of lemon juice to baking soda and apply a thin layer to the affected area for 5 to 10 minutes.                2. Toothpaste Mint has many healing properties when it comes to acne, so it's no surprise that toothpaste is a popular home remedy to treat unsightly pimples. It is important to use the right kind of toothpaste: a white paste that contains hydrogen peroxide or baking soda. The combination of these ingredients can help to reduce acne-causing bac
