How often should you clean your makeup brushes?
Makeup brushes can become coated not only with makeup residue, but also with body oils and dead skin, making them havens for bacteria that will decrease the life of your brush, negatively affect the proper application of makeup and can also cause skin problems and possible infection.
It is recommended that you clean your makeup brushes after each use and that you give them a through cleaning at least once a week.

What is Rosacea?
Rosacea, sometimes incorrectly called adult acne, is a chronic inflammatory condition of the face – most often the central area.
Telltale signs of this malady include persistent redness, promonent blood vessels, and pimple-like pustules. Although the cause of this cindition is unknown and there is no cure for rosacea, the things that trigger a flare-up – such as alcohol consumption, unprotected sun exposure, and extremes of temperature – are relatively easy to avoid.
Antibiotics and topical solutions are often prescribed to control the condition, but this can be accomplished with the use of natural remedies and careful avoidance of triggers.
Dr. Earl Mindell’s Recommendations:
- All natural multivitamin/mineral complex rich in antioxidants
- Evening Primrose oil three times daily
- Flaxseed oil twice daily
- Dandelion extract: 500mg, one to three times daily
- Grape Seed Extract: 200mg daily
- Green Tea Extract 200mg daily
- Silica: 30mg daily

Did you know?
Max Factor was originally from Poland?
In the 19th century he became a purveyor of cremes and cosmetics to the Russian court.
Then in 1904 he immigrated to Los Angeles California where he started creating and selling theatrical makeup. Besides selling his own make-up products he soon became the West Coast distributor of Leichner and Minor, two leading theatrical make-up manufacturers.
One of his major innovations was Pan-Cake Makeup that was developed for actors. Pancake makeup didn’t sweat off as easily.
The development of Technicolor film required the company to develop a new line of products as its existing Panchromatic make-up left a slight sheen on the skin which reflected surrounding colours. As a result of how bad they looked in colour many actors and actresses refused to appear in colour films.
By 1914 he had perfected the first cosmetic specifically created for motion picture use — a thinner greasepaint in cream form, packaged in a jar, and created in 12 precisely-graduated shades. Unlike theatrical cosmetics, it would not crack or cake.
Pancake makeup became the fastest and largest selling single make-up item to date, as well as the standard make-up used in all Technicolor films.

I wish you a great weekend!
The substance thiomersal can be found in vaccinations, anti-fungals and antiseptic. It also can be found in some mascaras.
Do you know what is it made from?
Thiomersal has been used through the 20th century in spite of its inherent danger. It is very toxic if ingested orally, applied to the skin or inhaled. The use of this substance is being phased out and replaced by more benign substances. It has been known to cause mercury poisoning when used in mascara!
