Is Your Lipstick Bad for You?

Miriam Lawrence with her 11-year-old daughter, Eliana, at their home in Denver last week. In 2014, Eliana began using a hair product and within weeks her hair began falling out until she was completely bald. Credit Nick Cote for The New York Times You can’t legally buy a drug in the United States that hasn’t undergone rigorous testing, mandated by Congress, to prove that it’s safe and effective. By contrast, that lipstick, shampoo, or deodorant you use every day may have undergone no such testing. And there’s cause to wonder if those products are safe. More than 21,000 complaints of itching, rashes and hair loss, for instance, have been sent to the manufacturer and distributor of Wen Hair Care products. And hair-straightening products that contain formaldehyde, a known carcinogen, have caused allergic reactions, hair loss, rashes, blisters and other problems in salon workers and their customers. A bill introduced by two senators — Dianne Feinstein, Democrat of California, and Susan Collins, Republican of Maine — would change that by requiring the Food and Drug Administration to evaluate a minimum of five chemicals used in cosmetics every year and to collect fees from the industry to pay for those reviews. The agency would also get the power to order companies to recall dangerous products and to force companies to provide it with safety data and reports of adverse health effects from consumers. The bill has the backing of public interest groups like the Environmental Working Group and the American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network, as well as much of the cosmetics industry, including big companies like Johnson & Johnson and Procter & Gamble. But some manufacturers, like Mary Kay, oppose the bill because they argue that its provisions would be too onerous. They are pushing a much weaker measure introduced by Representative Pete Sessions, Republican of Texas, that would not require the F.D.A. to review risky ingredients and wouldn’t give the agency authority to order recalls. Scientists and consumers have raised numerous concerns about personal care products. Experts are particularly concerned about the use of chemicals that may not cause immediate problems, but could over time increase the risk of cancer, reproductive disorders and other ailments. One of the first five chemicals the F.D.A. would be required to review is lead acetate, a color additive used in hair dyes, which the European Union has banned because it is linked to reproductive problems. The other four ingredients are used in shampoos, lotions and other products. The E.U. has set limits on the concentrations in which those compounds can be used. All told, European officials have restricted or banned more than 1,300 chemicals and groups of chemicals, experts say; the F.D.A. has prohibited 11 ingredients. That shocking discrepancy makes clear how far behind the United States is in this area. It also shows that sensible regulations will not cripple companies that make cosmetics, since many of their products are already covered by European law. The bill could be stronger. Since it would require the F.D.A. to review a minimum of only five chemicals at a time, it would take years to review many chemicals that scientists and consumers are worried about. In later years, the F.D.A. would choose the chemicals in consultation with the industry and consumer groups. The legislation, a compromise between the wishes of industry and consumer groups, would also pre-empt state regulations of cosmetics. It is, however, a vast improvement over the status quo and deserves prompt attention in a congressional session that has only a few weeks left, between Labor Day and the November election.

Why Your Spice Cabinet May Be Your Best Kept Secret by Natasha Burton

Why Your Spice Cabinet May Be Your Best Kept Beauty Secret

If you want to shake up your beauty routine—and revive your skin to a state of absolute gorgeousness—look no further than your very own pantry. 

A number of spices you already have right in your home are untapped resources for unlocking supple, clear, and glowing skin, according to Heather Scholten of Spiceologist. Here, she shares some of her favorite seasonings that work on your skin just as well as your skillet—plus, some amazing home remedies you can try tonight!

Full of anti-bacterial qualities, saffron’s unique color, flavor and other properties give it culinary and medicinal characteristics that make it renowned all over the world. Rich in vitamin A, B1, B2, B3, Vitamin C, iron, potassium, zinc, selenium, folate and many other nutrients, saffron brightens up your complexion and even works a great home remedy for clearing up acne. Try this saffron face mask: Add 3-4 strands of high quality saffron to ½ cup whole milk and allow them to soften in the milk for an hour or so. Apply to face and neck, then, after 10-15 minutes, wash off.

The oil of this fragrant spice can make a fragrant facial cleanser, since it also has antimicrobial properties. Cloves or clove oil can also be used to prevent hair loss and for thickening the hair as well.

This antiseptic and antibacterial spice is not only a delicious anti-inflammatory addition to smoothies, but its properties can make your skin glow when used as a face mask. Try this recipe: Mix 1 tablespoon each of ground oatmeal, turmeric and honey, then stir to blend.  Apply to face with a soft brush or fingertips (you can thin with water if needed) and leave on for 10-15 minutes. Remove with cold water—hot water will make you turn orange!—then wash your face with your usual cleanser.

Get plump lips naturally with this skin-warming spice. Wet a cinnamon stick and rub on your lips. Cinnamon is a natural exfoliator and can also boost circulation while plumping your lips (temporarily, of course).

Great for sensitive skin—and spaghetti sauce—this spice decreases redness and irritation and it can help minimize sensitivity caused by sun exposure. To feel its effects, soak ½ teaspoon of the seeds in a cup purified water and spritz your face and neck to cool your skin.

Circulation-boosting ginger calms puffiness and ups blood flow, giving you a natural healthy glow. It can also help minimize cellulite dimples, which is a nice bonus, to say the least. To make a ginger scrub, pulverize ½ cup of white rice in a blender. Add ¼ cup brown sugar, 2 tablespoons of minced fresh ginger and a teaspoon of coconut milk, then blend until combined. Apply to areas of cellulite by rubbing it in, then rinse it off.

Try This Instead of That: Easy Swaps for More Beautiful Skin

Try This Instead of That: Easy Swaps for More Beautiful Skin

Image result for watermelon pictures

1. Swap Blended Coffee Drinks with Plain Iced Coffee
Dairy in blended coffee drinks can worsen acne and sugar break down collagen. 
Having four or more cups of coffee a day was associated with a 20% lower risk of melanoma in a 2015 Yale study.

2. Swap Grilled Steak with Salmon
Red meat grilled at high temperatures can play a damaging role in aging. Salmon, however, is rich in anti-inflammatory omega-3 fatty acids and a serving of oily fish every five days may protect against precancerous changes, according to a 2009 study.

3. Swap Citrus Fruits with Watermelon
Citrus fruits contain prsoralens, which make your skin more sensitive to UV rays and have been linked to an increased risk of melanoma. Watermelons are full of Vitamin C (just like citrus fruits) which helps rejuvenate skin, but they do not contain any psoralens.

A couple tips if you're a retinol newbie: Ease into it and be sure to only use the product at night. "Start slowly, incorporating it into your evening regimen (sunlight deactivates retinoic acid so you can't use it during the day) every other day. This lets your skin gradually acclimate to the more potent level of the product. You can also mix it in with your usual moisturizer or facial oil to buffer the irritation (redness, flaking, etc.) that can often come along with using retinol. And if waxing is your go-to for hair removal, do not use a retinoid two to five days before and after getting a wax. 
Another important thing to note when using an OTC or prescription retinoid is that you don't need too much. More is not better—a pea-size amount for your full face is all you need. It is also recommended to use your retinoid on the tops of your hands, your neck and your chest regularly, too to eliminate sun damage and spots.

DIY: The Beauty Benefits of Rice Water


Benefits of Rice Water

The Beauty Benefits of Rice Water

April 4, 2015
Benefits of Rice WaterThe next time you make rice, don’t throw away the water! It turns out it’s one of the cheapest ways to pamper your skin and hair!

Rice water is full of vitamins and minerals that are wonderful for both hair and skin, something women in Asian cultures have known for centuries. Traditionally, female rice farmers in China, Japan, and other southeast Asian countries used to bathe and wash in the water used for cleaning rice.
One of the best things about rice water is that it’s probably the simplest DIY “beauty product” you’ll ever make. Some rice and water is literally all you need!
Benefits of Rice Water

Make Your Own Rice Water Beauty Elixir

What You’ll Need:
  • 1/2 cup uncooked rice (brown, white long grain, white short grain, jasmine, or what ever you have)
  • 2 cups water
To make rice water, first rinse the rice with about a cup of water to remove any dirt or impurities.
Benefits of Rice Water
Then, place 1/2 cup of uncooked rice in a bowl and cover with water. Let the rice soak for 15 to 30 minutes. Swirl it around and lightly knead it until the water turns cloudy. This will help the vitamins and minerals seep into the water, creating anourishing rinse for your hair and skin.
Benefits of Rice WaterStrain out the rice water into a clean bowl or container. You can store your rice water in an air-tight container in the refrigerator for a few up to a week.
Your rice water is ready to use for a variety of hair and skin treatments:
Benefits of Rice Water

Skin Benefits

Rice water contains vitamins, minerals and amino acids which are essential for beautiful skin, including ferulic acid, which is a great antioxidant, and allantoin, known for it’s anti-inflammatory properties.

Facial cleanser
Using rice water to cleanse your face is as simple as dipping a cotton ball or pad into the liquid and gently massaging it into your skin for couple of minutes. Let your face air dry to make sure it really absorbs all of the good stuff. With regular use you will notice your skin feeling soft, tight, and radiant. Use every day as part of your skin care routine.

Facial toner
You can also use rice water as a toner. Soak a cotton ball or pad and apply to face after cleansing to minimize the appearance of pores and tighten skin. This natural skin toner promotes cell growth, stimulates blood flow, and helps keep your skin smooth and bright.

Acne treatment
Rice water also helps heal acne and cools the redness of an outbreak. It acts as an astringent on the skin, tightening the pores.

Treats eczema
The starch components in rice water are effective in easing the effects of eczema on your skin. Dip a clean washcloth into the water and pat all over the affected skin. Continue doing this for a couple of minutes and make sure you air dry it.

For irritated skin
Apply rice water on rashes or other skin inflammation to soothe it naturally. A dermatological study on patients with atopic dermatitis claimed that taking a 15 minute bath with rice water twice a day could improve the condition significantly.

Sunburn soother
Rice water is also used for cooling inflammations and burnt skin. It will help your skin recover fast and prevent further damage. Cold rice water, in such cases, is preferred.

Why Choose Medical Grade Skincare Products?

Why Choose Medical Grade Skincare Products?

A lot of people ask us what the difference is between medical grade skincare products, and products from a department store or drugstore. At Skincare Solutions Store we offer an array of medical grade skincare products, and our goal is to educate women and men about the benefits.

Many people are lured to popular “over-the-counter” brands, because of their advertisements, packaging and of course, the price. But what many people don’t know is that while they claim to work, and they may have some benefits, those products can’t fix real skin problems.

There are MANY reasons why we recommend medical grade skincare products, but here are the 3 main reasons why they work better than over-the-counter products:
1.  Medical Grade Skincare products have higher concentrations of active ingredients than over-the-counter products do. The reason why they can have higher concentrations is because those products are being dispensed and overseen by a Doctor or Physician. Products from a department store are formulated for everyone and anyone, and aren’t being overseen by a Doctor, so they can only have small amounts of those active ingredients.

2.  In order to get real results from a skincare product, treatment needs to be directed toward deeper layers of the skin. Over-the-counter products can only work on the epidermis (the outer layer of skin) where the skin cells are starting to shed.  Medical Grade Skincare products can actually penetrate into deeper layers of the skin. These products work all the way down to the dermis (middle layer of skin) where the elastin and collagen are contained, as well as the basal (bottom layer of skin) where new cells are produced. Medical Grade products provide real results! They have been scientifically published in medical journals, and have been proven to work. 

3.  Medical Grade Products can actually transform the skin because the ingredients can repair skin at the deep layers, where the problems arise and can be where skin cells are produced and where the elastin and collagen are contained.

With Medical Grade Products, you can effectively treat fine lines and wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, acne, sun spots and many other skin care issues. They have been proven to work, and we have seen the results!

Updated 2016: Companies that DO and DON'T Practice Cruelty-Free Product Testing

Updated 2016: Companies that DO and DON'T Practice Cruelty-Free Product Testing

I have to say, I am really surprised by the lists shown below. 

The one that struck me the hardest is MAC cosmetics. I have been using their makeup products religiously since I was 13-years old and I am so unbelievably disappointed that they do in fact test their products on animals. I did a little more digging and found that MAC cosmetics values money over the safety and morality of animals. MAC claims that they are against animal-testing, but cannot control what other countries do with their products. Specifically, when China receives an import of MAC products they test the products on animals before allowing their citizens to purchase. When MAC was asked why they still sell to China knowing that China does not practice cruelty-free testing, MAC responded by saying that they are "committed to selling products to China." Clearly, the dollar is more important to MAC than animal welfare. After discovering this, I have decided to stop supporting MAC and find a brand that cares more about animals than profits. 

Take a look at the lists below and take some time to think about whether you want to support a company that consciously chooses to use animal testing when there are MANY cruelty-free testing alternatives available. Food For Thought.


Avoid these companies! They DO test on animals (updated in 2016). <a class="pintag searchlink" data-query="%23crueltyfree" data-type="hashtag" href="/search/?q=%23crueltyfree&rs=hashtag" rel="nofollow" title="#crueltyfree search Pinterest">#crueltyfree</a>

A Guide to Protecting your Little Darlings from the Sun

A Guide to Shielding the Smallest Members of your Family from the Sun

#1: Baby Your Baby
While it’s important for us adults to protect ourselves from UV rays, we have a wide variety of lotions and creams available to slather on ourselves. Infants have more sensitive skin and so require more TLC and gentler formulas, while no SPF is recommended for infants under the age of 6 months, if it is unavoidable, pick a broad-spectrum with at least an SPF of 45 specifically designed for babies. These use physical barriers like titanium dioxide, rather than potentially irritating chemical ones, and are fragrance-free and hypoallergenic. They are available at different prices points from budget-friendly sunscreen to splurge-worthy sunscreen. If your little one is going to be splashing around in the paddling pool or ocean, be sure to use a water-resistant formula like COOLA Baby SPF 50, which keeps doing its thing even when wet. But do make sure you reapply once your child is on dry land. A spray probably seems like the easiest way to get that SPF onto a fidgety toddler, but think again. To get the protection promised on the outside of the bottle, you need to spray the same spot for six seconds, otherwise a quick spritz will only provide the equivalent of a SPF 7. Lotion really is the best option.
#2: Practice Responsible Application
Twenty minutes before heading out, slather your son or daughter in SPF to give it time to absorb so it won’t slide off your soon-to-be sweaty baby. Avoid the area around their eyes if you don’t want a flood of tears and likewise, the palms, which will most likely end up in the eyes. Be sure you don’t miss the usual forgotten spots including the ears, nape of the neck, backs of the knees, ankles, and armpits. And you know how your kid won’t sit still? Neither will his or her clothing, which means you need to apply sunscreen one inch beyond the border of their clothing to avoid hot spots. Then apply SPF every two hours. Keep a small bottle of SPF in your diaper bag so you’re ready to reapply. Stickers and bracelets can be worn to help gauge whether the little one has had too much sun. If the UV index is high, then plan for an indoor day.
#3: Make Your Own Shade
One great thing about plopping your kid in a stroller? Built-in sun protection! Those handy-dandy hoods provide an equivalent of SPF 50 as long as you don’t open the “sunroof.” And while child-size sunglasses aka baby-ators look adorable they also provide an excellent way to shield tiny eyes from the glare of the sun. That t-shirt on the other hand doesn’t do your baby any sun-protective favors. In fact, it barely provides SPF 8 level protection. Luckily, there is clothing made from a wondrous fabric with UPF or Ultraviolet Protection Factor, which is equivalent to SPF (e.g., UPF 50 equals SPF 50). Which means you don’t have to deal with trying to slather your squirmy worm of a baby in head-to-toe sun protection every couple hours. Brands like Coolibar even make full-body baby rashguards in cool designs your kids will approve of. Suddenly, a trip to the beach can go on minus struggles with sun protection application. In case you don’t want to add to your baby’s already extensive wardrobe, you can simply buy SunGuard Sun Protection, a liquid you add to your laundry to transform your regular clothes into sun-blocking marvels for up to 20 washes. And slap a hat on that kid! Babies have finer hair than adults so need more protection up top. Protect their little piggies with aqua socks when at the beach.
#4 Have a Recovery Plan
Even if you managed to avoid a burn, any day at the beach can leave your baby’s skin as dried out as the Sahara. Skip moisture-sucking daily baths (infants don’t need them) in favor of every other. If they are particularly sandy or sweaty, just dunk them in lukewarm water for two minutes to give them a quick rinse. While skin is still damp, slather your baby in a body lotion like Honest Company Face & Body Lotion to preserve the delicate barrier function, and then hold tight so your slippery little one doesn’t slide right through your hands. In my house, a sunburn was treated like any illness so on the rare occasion my daughters got one, they had to stay inside until they recovered. Listen, mishaps do happen (even to my kids) to the best of us so if your baby does get burned, take steps to soothe and stave off the pain and inflammation. Apply a topical 1 percent cortisone cream, give them baby Advil, and draw them a cool bath with Aveeno Oatmeal Bath (check you’re your pediatrician re: Advil and hydrocortisone). If you see any blistering or have chills or fever consult your dermatologist as soon as possible. And best of all, avoid the beach between the hours of 11 a.m. — 3 p.m. when the sun is the strongest.       Dr. Patricia Wexler
