QUICK FIX #7: LESS RED SKIN

In our next few posts, we’ll be detailing simple solutions to problems that cosmetics tends to consider gigantic. In this post, we’ll look at easy ways to deal with red skin. Read ahead for three approaches to returning normal color to your skin!

#1: Get right to the problem.

Red skin is inflamed skin. So why not address the problem directly? Buy skin products with anti-inflammatory ingredients. Key phrases like “calming,” “soothing,” and “anti-redness” are key indicators that you’ve found what you’re looking for.

#2: Use your groceries.

Use milk in your cooking? Turns out you can start using it on your skin too. Since it’s so basic and it’s always stored cold, combining it with ice cubes makes a great anti-inflammatory mix. Dunk a washcloth into this and press it against your red spots.

#3: Cut the capsule.

Ever wonder what if might be like to open up one of those gel capsules and let the liquid go wherever? Here’s your chance to live out that lifelong dream. A primrose oil capsule can be broken open so that its contents can be rubbed over red spots to help heal them.

QUICK FIX #6: DULL SKIN

In our next few posts, we’ll be detailing simple solutions to problems that cosmetics tends to consider gigantic. In this post, we’ll look at easy ways to deal with dull skin. Read ahead for three approaches to keeping your skin vivid!

#1: Exfoliate occasionally.

It’s been long known that exfoliating your skin is thoroughly beneficial, so why not do this as a way to brighten your skin? New skin is smoother, and smooth skin shines brightly, bringing life to your formerly dull skin. What’s really great about this approach is that you only need to do it a couple of times a week to really see results.

#2: Nighttime peels.

One-step peels are just as simple as they sound. Applying peels with glycolic acid or salicylic acid bases at night does just the trick. The drawback is that you may temporarily redden your skin in the process, but this fades over a few hours, which is why you should do this at night.

#3: Get physical.

Any sort of exercise or physical activity that brings your heart rate up will result in bright skin for roughly an hour afterwards. This happens since the dilated blood vessels and stimulated oil glands resulting from physical activity lead directly to shining skin. A less draining way to do this is to keep your head below your heart in some way, whether sitting, stretching, or otherwise, to force blood to the face and enhance its shine.

QUICK FIX #5: DRY SKIN

In our next few posts, we’ll be detailing simple solutions to problems that cosmetics tends to consider gigantic. In this post, we’ll look at easy ways to deal with dry skin. Read ahead for three approaches to keeping your skin moist!

#1: Keep it classic.

Your first thought upon discovering this article might be, “isn’t moisturizer the obvious solution!” Well yes, it is! Specifically, though, using a facial moisturizer with glycerin and occlusives on any dry skin – not just the face – is an easy tradition to keep up with.

#2: Daily face wash.

If constant moisturizing feels like too much, find yourself a face wash cream. Specifically, you want something with glycerin, shea butter, or oatmeal listed as one of the first five ingredients. Although this method won’t work as well as consistent moisturizing, it takes less time.

#3: The magic pill.

You are what you eat, you know. So why not feed yourself the right nutrients to keep your skin moist? A daily 1000-mg flaxseed oil pill does just this.

QUICK FIX #4: ELIMINATING PIMPLES

In our next few posts, we’ll be detailing simple solutions to problems that cosmetics tends to consider gigantic. In this post, we’ll look at easy ways to eliminate pimples. Read ahead for three approaches to conquering pimples!

#1: Common chemicals

Solutions of 0.5% salicylic acid or 2.5% benzoyl peroxide (both easy enough to find) can be used to spot-treat pimples. However, they’ll take a week or more to come into effect, so make sure to do this every day. Keep in mind that a more concentrated percentage of the chemical can actually damage the skin further, so it’s best to obey the recommended amounts.

#2: Common cream

Simply go to your nearest drug store and buy your standard hydrocortisone cream (1%, over the counter). As with common chemicals, a spot treatment is best here. Rub in a hefty amount of the cream and let it sit for a long period of time for best results.

#3: Eye drops for the skin

Did you know that eye drops aren’t just for your eyes? It turns out they can help your skin too. Apply Visine to your blemishes and you’ll have a less red spot in no time.

QUICK FIX #3: PUFFY EYES

In our next few posts, we’ll be detailing simple solutions to problems that cosmetics tends to consider gigantic. In this post, we’ll look at easy ways to reduce puffing around your eyes. Read ahead for three approaches to keep your eyes looking a normal size!

#1: Moist and stable

As with many skin problems, moisturizer is a supremely quick fix. Skin inflammation is often the root of puffy eyes, so consistent moisturizer application will quickly halt swelling. You’ll want to focus under your eyes with this moisturizer.

#2: Gel against swell

A newer technology to fight off puffy eyes comes in the form of gel pads. Sound too sci-fi for you? It’s actually really easy – just find these via Spenco, refrigerate them, and keep them under your eyes for 2-3 minutes in the morning.

#3: Keep your head down

So many problems can be fixed in your sleep. Laying your head to rest on two pillows will keep it straight at night. Angling it, on the other hand, subjects you to the forces of gravity, which can dehydrate the skin under your eyes and lead to puffing there.

QUICK FIX #2: CROW’S FEET

In our next few posts, we’ll be detailing simple solutions to problems that cosmetics tends to consider gigantic. This week, we’ll look at easy ways to deal with crow’s feet. Read ahead for three approaches to returning a vivid look to the skin around your eyes!

#1: Retinol.

Turns out the skin around your eyes tends not to be as sensitive as you thought. Any old facial product that contains retinol can be applied as close as the lower lash line to achieve the same effects as an eye cream. But for those with skin prone to irritation, the following two methods might prove more useful.

#2: The ordinary things – washcloth, moisturizer.

Surely, there are a few minutes in your day where you’re just at home relaxing, not really doing anything, and your hands are free. This is great time to grab a washcloth and dampen it, then press it lightly on the skin under your eyes for just a few minutes. Top this off with a light application of your favorite moisturized and your crow’s feet will blend right in!

#3: Stop staying up so late.

We probably all associate bags under the eyes with a lack of sleep. There’s a biological reason for this – it turns out that sleep rejuvenates the skin under your eyes, eliminating the lines that define crow’s feet. A good night’s sleep, as well as a glass of water when you wake up to hydrate yourself and keep the skin moist, is the most natural way to hide your crow’s feet.

You can make your eyes even more perfect with the permanent cosmetic tattooing services of The Whitney Center. We specialize in crafting permanent eyebrows and eyeliner customized to your facial features. Contact us today to learn how we can make your eyes the most dazzling they can be.
