Recent studies have proven that taking a daily multivitamin may be a waste of time and money when it comes to our health. The studies suggest that we can, and most often do, get the daily vitamin intake with the foods we eat. However, those with specific medical conditions or needs should take one. These studies have shown that it is unnecessary to take a multivitamin for our body’s health, but the studies do not mention the unnecessary notion for our skin’s health. Our skin needs daily vitamins, whether you take it orally or use it topically. Check for the ingredients in your skin care product and see if your skin is receiving those vital vitamins. Dr. Karen Burke, a New York dermatologist, recommends taking 1 to 6g vitamin C daily and 400 IU natural Vitamin E.

Stress management is also important for fighting cellulite. Relaxing will distress and detoxify the body. Stress buildup contributes to fat. Cortisol is a stress hormone, known as a contributing factor in belly fat.

Avoid surgery at all costs. Surgery, such as liposuction, may reduce fat, but it will not remove cellulite.

After surgery, your fat may disappear, but the cellulite may not. Skinny women have cellulite; it is not just a skin condition in overweight women. Genes play a role in cellulite, and even the most prestigious cosmetic procedures and vigorous lifestyle changes won’t completely get rid of cellulite.

birthmark BirthmarksMarilyn Monroe’s famous birthmark made her an icon for beauty. It is irretrievable to think that a birthmark could be anything but a symbol of beauty and character. Unfortunately, those with birthmarks may not feel as confident as those icon’s of beauty. Some birthmarks come in different shapes and on different areas of our bodies. This is a reason for some to seek out a skin care product that will help with covering or treating birthmarks. First, we need to look at what birthmarks are before we can begin treating them.

A birthmark is a blemish on the skin formed before birth. They are part of the group of skin lesions known as moles. The cause of birthmarks is unknown, but may include cellular damage due to radiation or chemicals. Some types seem to run in families.

Birthmark Tales

In Italian, Spanish, and Middle Eastern cultures, they are called: voglie in Italian; antojos in Spanish; or wiham in Arabic; all of which translate to “wishes” because, according to folklore, they are caused by unsatisfied wishes of the mother during pregnancy. For example, if a pregnant woman does not satisfy a sudden wish or craving for strawberries, then the infant might bear a strawberry mark.

These tales are comical, but they do add an interesting dimension to the special spots that have made you unique.

Common Types of Birthmarks

These birthmarks are the most problematic and carry a psychological impact for some.

Dermablend Covert Duet Custom Corrector – Tan Duo is the perfect blend to customize the color you need for the cover-up. Since birthmarks range in color, size, and tone, it is a good idea to consider using custom hues. The cover cream comes in a variety of shades to match your skin tone, but this custom corrector provides pink and yellow pigments to match your birthmark perfectly. This corrector also has the amazing abilities to hide large pores and wrinkles, unlike other camouflage correctors. This is the best of the best, especially for the face or small areas.

It has the same benefits and qualities of Dermablend Custom Corrector Duo, but without the additional pink or yellow tones. This is a one-stop source to correct any birthmark or other darker skin hues like tattoos. There is nothing better and more economical.

Dermablend Loose Setting Powder – Original is the final step after using the Dermablend Cover Cream. This is to set the corrector. We have found that the Dermablend brand is the best cover-up, but unless you use the Dermablend Loose Setting Powder, it may run off on your clothing or anything else it touches. Tip: The powder is what saves your clothes and keeps the corrector on all day, and even several days. The powder is a necessity.

Because Dermablend has the tendency to have vigorous staying power, we recommended using the Dermablend Remover. Using regular soap will make removing Dermablend a real chore. The Dermablend Remover makes it easier to remove. Tip: Do not use towels or washcloths using regular soap to remove this as it could stain. Use the remover with your hands or a special cloth that you only use to remove Dermablend.
