I know a number of you like a good facial detox and so today, I’m going to recommend you a really affordable and effective facial detox powder that goes by the name of NOW European Clay Powder. Okay, if you’re anything like me, then you might have asked “what, NOW?” Yeah, it’s NOW, as in NOW Foods with the range of health foods.
I don’t buy that many carrier oils these days because I noticed they oxidize and turn rancid very quickly. Like I had to throw out half a bottle of sweet almond oil recently, even though I recalled purchasing it not too long ago. But the funny thing is that I noticed that the same oil in which I had mixed with some drops of astaxanthin still smell okay. It then occurred to me that the best way to extend the shelf life of a carrier oil is by adding an antioxidant.
I’ve never really needed to make extra efforts to remove my eye makeup simply because I didn’t wear much of them in the past. However, when I started wearing eyeliner, I realized that I needed more effort to take the color off without rubbing and tugging the delicate eye area. I know oil cleansers or just pure oil are great to remove eye makeup but I don’t like the former, and I don’t like the oily feeling of the latter.
Are you aware that your skin has a biological clock? Well, I kinda suspected but wasn’t too sure until I stumbled upon this commentary from the Journal of Investigative Dermatology. According to the commentary, the biological clock of our skin is under the influence of the central clock of our body. Although the role of this clock is currently unknown, I would like to think that it most likely regulates the behavior of our skin cells such as signaling them to protect against harmful radiation in the day and regenerating in the night. If this is true, then we might need to consider our skin care routines on a time basis.
