What do you think?:

What do you think? If you had to assign an undertone to each of these people, which one would you?

Skin Care:

Skin Care I’m going to keep it simple for the fact that skin is a very multidimensional item. It’s sensitive to genetics, weather, hormones, etc. What can be said is that there are ways to maintain it’s health and moisture.

Skin Care:

Skin Types 3 Simple Steps Normal Dry Oily [most prevalent in blacks] Combination Sensitive Each requires different variations of the 3 step regiment. Exfoliate with a gentle, non abrasive face wash. Tone skin with a simple astringent, like witch hazel. Moisturize daily with a cream that has an SPF in excess of 15. Skin Care

Irritants and Aids:

Irritants and Aids Good ole baking soda shows up again. A dash of it in your face wash once or twice a week leads to a smoother surface. Wash upward and outward with lukewarm water. What Your Skin Can’t Stand: Smoking and cigarette smoke Alcohol Constant unblocked sunlight Dirty hands

“A smile is an inexpensive way to change your looks.”:

“A smile is an inexpensive way to change your looks.” Teeth Nails Fragrance


Teeth About 28 by adulthood Fall out due to health, not age Natural enemies: plaque, tartar, cavities, sugars, not flossing, gingivitis


Teeth Ideal toothbrush: small head, soft bristles. Clean a toothbrush with by sitting it in a warm glass of water and baking soda overnight, though it should be replaced every 2-3 months. Plaque buildup? Dip floss into baking soda &get it in! Brushing in circles leads to the most effective cleaning.

Teeth &Bad Breath:

Teeth &Bad Breath Suck on cinnamon- literally! The sweet taste and scent will make any breath better. FLOSS! Had onions recently? Swish some water and baking soda [again!] around Suck a lemon Chew parsley Got coffee breath? Eat an apple. Yeah, that’s really it!


Essentials DO NOT Nail clippers [replace every year] Emery boards Orangewood sticks Both base and top coats Pick your cuticles [may lead to infection or torn skin] Bite your nails [lead to rough, weak nails] Apply nail lacquer without a base coat; can yellow or weaken nail. Nails


Nails Whether you’re dealing with feet or hands: Apply a base coat and allow to dry. Apply a thin layer of chosen nail closer in three strokes [one down middle, one on each side] and allow for 2 to 3 min between each coat to dry. Apply top coat and wrap brush over edge of nail.

Nail Colors: Cool:

The Low Down DO NOT Scent attractiveness is subjective; what smells amazing to you make be disgusting to another. Every one has their own chemical makeup, causing a single scent to potentially smell countless ways. It is best to apply a sample to body before buying. Wear the same scent all year; i.e. florals are great in the summer. Rub fragrance into skin [may disturb chemical balances]. Spray onto hair. Spray onto clothes. Spray onto jewelry. Fragrance

Fragrance Families:

Fragrance Families Florals : reminiscent of flower bouquets and gardens; have a sense of romanticism Fruity : sweet and refreshing; very playful Greens : invigorating and clean, crisp scents, reminiscent of leaves; direct opposite of florals Chyphres : cool and foresty; woody, mossy, earthy Orientals : sultry, exotic, spicy; sophiscticated
