Choosing a Healthy Makeup for Skin

We all want to look our best and using a range of makeup that works with your skin, keeping it glowing with health, is a great way to give you an advantage. For this reason, it is worth finding a healthy makeup for skin, such as mineral powder makeup, that will bring out the best from your skin.

Mineral powder makeup uses natural ingredients to ensure the skin can breath and get the nutrients it needs to look at its best. In looking for a good cosmetics range like this, you will also come across organic makeup. There are some excellent ranges using natural ingredients but you may want to go a little further and use certified organic cosmetics.

Firstly, it is always better to research the ingredients of the product in which you are interested. Companies should be open about what is in their cosmetics; if it is difficult to establish the ingredients, it might be better to look elsewhere. Have a look at any reviews and opinions online: there are always negative comments but there are some excellent sources of information online too.

Different bodies regulate organic makeup depending on where you are in the world. There is no global body establishing organic standards and different regions or countries have their own.

A great article to help understand the regulation of organic cosmetics can be found on the Truth In Aging website.

As with so many other things, it is worth finding out all you can about what you are putting on your skin and finding the best range for you.

Healthy And Beauty Tip Number 8: Collagen Benefits The Eyes

The lips often draw the eye when cosmetics are correctly used but once you get closer to the person behind the makeup,the eyes become more important. Did you know that collagen benefits your eyes as well as other parts of the body?

We all want clear, healthy-looking eyes (they are,after all, the window to the soul) so it makes sense to look after them as much as possible.

As usual, nutrition is important; eat lots of fruit and vegetables to give the eyes the goodness they require to operate correctly. Regular moderate exercise helps the operations of the human body and studies have shown this also reduces the risk of macular degeneration, a particular problem affecting the eyes.

Avoid smoking or smoky atmospheres or any other airborne pollution as the eyes have little defence against these. Protect the eyes whenever necessary by using goggles where foreign bodies could fly up (or when welding) or use sunglasses in strong light.

Have you ever had a photograph taken of the inside of your eyes when at the opticians? By doing this, many diseases affecting the rest of the body can be identified. This indicates how the eyes are closely connected to the rest of us.

Be careful when applying makeup as chemicals from cosmetics can irritate the eyes. Mineral makeup powder is less likely to affect the eyes but it is better to be safe than sorry.

Collagen benefits the eyes by making them firm but strong by reinforcing the tissues therein so you might consider a course of collagen capsules with your daily multivitamins.

Many of us spend money making our eyes look good on the outside but there is no substitute for healthy, clear eyes and this is only achieved by nutrition, protection and leading a healthy lifestyle.

My Personal Healthy Skin Tips

 

 
My mother always laughed when I talked to her about the latest beauty product I had found and asked her for tips to beautiful skin. She had always washed with soap and water and had never used any face creams. Right into her eighties, she still had good skin – though obviously she hadn’t worried about trying to stop the wrinkles!
I am not so lucky and my skin gets dry easily. It is also quite sensitive – I learnt the hard way not to use strong soap if I didn’t want a puffy face! I don’t have a complicated skin routine. However, I am in my 50s and have managed to delay too many of the dreaded wrinkles so I assume I am doing something right. My healthy skin tips are simple and nothing we haven’t all heard before. These tips are:

  • Eat well – follow advice about healthy eating and drinking;
  • Protect your skin from the sun all the time, not just when you are sunbathing;
  • If you want a tan, read about tips for fake tanning and use of sunless tan lotions on this website;
  • Cleanse thoroughly with a gentle cleanser – even if you are really tired before you go to bed;
  • Find a moisturiser that suits you and use it;
  • Use a dedicated moisturiser around the eye area and be careful when applying – ‘be gentle’ is the order of the day.

There are no magic solutions and we are all different. However, we do all owe it to ourselves to look after our skin so, if you haven’t done so already, develop a routine that suits you and stick to it.
H.G.

All Natural Makeup: Beautiful Lips

To achieve that perfect look with all natural makeup it is very important to get the lips right. Somehow the mouth is always noticeable, especially when talking to someone. If you are like me, when you are having a conversation with someone part of the time is spent looking at the eyes and part looking at the lips to concentrate on what is being said.

This means that attention should be paid to the presentation of the mouth. As a man I find attractive lips so appealing. Using the right all natural makeup correctly can make a big impression on other people.

Fortunately Proto-col include a small range of beautiful lip glosses in their all natural makeup range.

These glosses come in a gel formulation for easier application: something that is helped by the container which comes with it’s own built-in mirror and even LED light so lips can be made so glamorous even in a nightclub or on the move. The brush included in the tube also makes application easier.

The range comes in four gorgeous colours plus a clear gloss. This means you can use this all natural makeup to enhance your natural look by simply applying the clear gloss to make your natural lip colour shine.

Perhaps the four colours do not offer enough variety for you? Fine. This range of all natural makeup is mineral based so you can mix the clear gloss with one of the mineral powders to make you own colour. Why not experiment?

A further advantage of the Proto-col lip gloss range is that each one includes mineral oil to hydrate your lips.

The results are long lasting and not at all sticky.

For a limited time you can buy the entire range of all natural makeup lip glosses in one go for a discounted price of £43.80 (€52.55).

How many more reasons do you need to have watchable lips?

Another useful tip given to the Proto-col National Conference by Tally Bookbinder, makeup artist to the stars:

When using the eyeshadow from any all natural makeup range, such as the mineral makeup from Proto-col, dip the brush lightly in water and the eyeshadow will become heavier and darker. Once it dries, you can blend it in nicely.

The February 2011 Proto-col National Conference

Product Display At Protocol Business Conference

On Sunday 6 February 2011, the Proto-col health and beauty company held it’s twice a year national conference and everyone from the company and a good representation of the consultants attended. Also there were some fascinating guest speakers.

The even was held at the Stareton Hall on the Royal Showground near Stoneleigh, Warwickshire, in the UK.

Snacks and beverages were available as were a range of product displays, staffed by knowledgeable staff and distributors ready to answer any questions asked. Proto-col staff ran an efficient product purchase system with a discount available for items bought at the event.

The introduction to the day was by National Trainer Dave Butler, followed by a quick welcome from Managing Director James Greenwell.

The first speaker was celebrity makeup expert Tally Bookbinder who did a demonstration of the Proto-col all natural makeup using as a model Louise Helyer. Apart from helping at the event and being a very professional model, Louise is also representing Great Britain in the Modern Pentathlon: just one of the athletes supporting the conference.

Tally shared her opinions of the all natural makeup produced by Proto-col as well as hints and tips on application and the features of the products. Having recently worked on the television show ‘Snog, Marry, Avoid,’ Tally was particularly interesting on the abuse teenagers and young women generally give their skin and how the all natural makeup from Proto-col is a better choice.

James Greenwell Talking At Protocol Business Conference

Next James Greenwell introduced nutrition expert Professor Greg Whyte who produced his usual blend of entertainment and fascinating insights into the world of sports nutrition. Of course Professor Whyte’s information was related to the nutritional health supplements supplied by Proto-col and this and other knowledge from the day will appear in future posts on BeRavishing.com.

Particularly of interest was Professor Whyte’s explanation of the problems experienced by athletes: this was particularly well illustrated by a video of triathletes losing the use of their limbs as a result of poor nutritional preparation. Equally interesting was the understanding that sports nutrition can be relevant in everyday situations, including the struggle some people have simply to get up stairs.

James Greenwell returned to introduce three new products, Skin Plus, Calcium Complex and L-Carnitine, which will also appear on the pages of this website shortly. During his launch of these nutritional health supplements, James provided the audience with further fascinating insights into the working of the human body.

Following a short break, James returned to explain some administrative changes, including improvements to the sales websites (such as LookRavishing.com) and monthly meetings. He also announced Proto-col nutritional health supplements are now available in a Harley Street health centre.

At the event those attending had brought along children’s books in response to an appeal from James to provide them for the children of St Lucia following damage to the island’s schools in a recent hurricane. James explained how the idea had come about and the success of the programme so far (if you would like to find out more about the Proto-col St Lucia appeal, you can visit the company’s Facebook page).

James then introduced motivational speaker Andy T. Hansen. Andy gave an entertaining but hard-hitting talk explaining how the present financial problems within the economy represented a great opportunity for the company and how we could set goals to achieve what we want.

Dave Butler returned to the stage to introduce a group of exciting incentives for consultants during 2011: these range from vouchers to a theatre break and a holiday to Barcelona. Dave then went on to give tips to the audience as the best ways to expand their individual businesses.

Everyone left the event better informed as to the immediate future of the company and a useful goody-bag laden with CDs, DVDs, new product information, details of the new incentives and other useful items. Many of us also left with a bag of products purchased at the event and a new confidence in both the products and the Proto-col company.

The next such conference is on Sunday 25 September, although there are also monthly meetings held around the country. If you would like to attend any of these events, please use the contact form on this page. Further details can be found on the ‘Events’ tab on LookRavishing.com .

The Benefits Of Zinc Oxide To Natural Skincare

Girl with beautiful blonde hair

Zinc oxide has many applications in several fields, including in the production of rubber and concrete and as a food additive. However this adaptable substance, probably used in India around 500BC and by the Romans too, is particularly useful in medicine and as a constituent of mineral cosmetics.

This additive to natural beauty products is a key ingredient of the traditional skin treatment calamine lotion. It is anti-inflammatory and is used in sunscreens as a result of its natural skincare property of adhering to the skin and reducing the amount of potentially dangerous ultra violet rays absorbed.

This feature of non-absorption means zinc oxide is nonirritating and nonallergenic. There is some evidence it may well be an anti-oxidant too.

Some cheaper sunscreens use a nano zinc oxide but this is absorbed by the skin and is less effective and may even cause health problems (although studies are yet to establish this).

This natural skincare ingredient also features in cream designed to prevent nappy (or diaper) rash due to its abilities to combat skin irritations through its adherence to the skins surface. Zinc oxide also has antibacterial properties, which help its abilities in natural skincare.

Acne can also be controlled as a result of zinc oxides anti-inflammatory properties and it ability to also control excessive skin oil. Through its promotion of healthy skin, this substance also helps scars heal more quickly.

As a result of these advantages, this useful substance can also be found in rectal suppositories and in treatments (such as calamine lotion) for chapped, dry or itching skin and minor burns.

Zinc oxide is also used in nutritional supplements as a source of zinc, which is useful for DNA and immune system maintenance.

With all its benefits to healthy skin, it is clear that zinc oxide is a useful ingredient in natural beauty products, especially natural skin products.
