It’s time for me to once again share a whole bunch of skincare and beauty related article that I thought you my readers would enjoy:
- If you are interested in the science side of skincare and myth busting when it comes to beauty claims and don’t currently read the blog Personal Care I highly suggest that you do. Three recent posts of theirs are particularly worth reading: Has Manuka Honey Really Been FDA Approved?, Parabens in Perspective: An Introduction, and “Safe” Chemicals Used In Makeup and Skincare Doubles Cancer Risk.
- I’ve covered the topic of facial exercises in my blog before, but I thought I would share a Refinery 29 article on the same subject. Bottom Line: no matter what anyone says don’t waste your time doing facial exercises.
- Disturbing news from The Guardian about the connection between mica (used in mineral make-up) and child labor.
- Acne article roundup: Two first hand accounts of how giving up dairy cleared up acne – from xoJane and New Beauty, the connections between stress and acne, and how charcoal based skincare products can help clear your acne.
- I’ve already expressed my love for the Australian blog Lab Muffin here before – if you don’t already subscribe start now! Recently Michelle posted two great articles: What Does Retinol Do? and Do I Need Extra Sunscreen When Using Chemical Exfoliants?
And now for a few articles for my fellow estheticians (and anyone else for that matter):
- How to handle wax related accidents (we all know that no matter how careful we are wax accidents occur): Waxidents Happen!
- More wax related information: remember never to double dip! Though wax pots are hot they are not hot enough to sterilize: Beauty Myth: Heat Makes Waxing Pots Sterile
- Skin Inc. highlights questions that every esthetician should be asking her clients. I need to add some of these to my client in-take form: 10 Things to Ask Every Client
- I think all estheticians would agree that one of the hardest parts of our job is marketing. Inc. explores the power of word of mouth marketing in: The Fascinating Psychology Behind Word-of-Mouth Marketing.
