Cleansing Whiteheads

We defined Whiteheads, but now the main question is how to prevent and/or treat Whiteheads right? Well, let us look at that now!

  • Avoid harsh soaps
  • Stay away from too many chemical based creams
  • Moisturizers/Lotions that are old/expired throw them out
  • Stop using old and/or shared make-up
  • Become familiar with your own skin-tone/oily/dry
  • Use Natural make up
  • Use appropriate facial cleaning products for your face
  • Steam your face to clean all the oils and pores

Never try to squeeze whitehead, it can create further damage, best to go to your dermatologist.


Diversity Creates Beauty

I would like to share one interesting question I ran into regarding Diverse Beauty blog-the individual asked me since they are white in skin tone, so this Diverse Beauty would not help them with their questions?

My answer to this statement is: Diverse Beauty blog is not only for individuals with colored skin tone but for everyone, including for fair skin (white skin tone), because it is amazing to see how similar we all are no matter what skin tone we have. I guess that what makes is unique and diverse!

Most of all that what makes this blog

Skin Tone Beauties

Acknowledging and selecting the right colors that go with our skin tones is a crucial key to our overall appearance. The correct colors can add value to our health, vibrant complexion, and sparkle to our everyday look. Remember you can leave the ashen and tired washed out look far from you, but there is hard work that needs to be put with time.

I would finally let you know by reading my previous posts, if you are still unsure bout your skin tone, do the exercises with a family member or friend and ask them for their input. If still you are not satisfied with that, please stop by a cosmetics counter a fine department store and talk with the specialist and/or consult your beautician for advice.

Before I head out, I want to share my fav actress and their pictures of reel vs real Hollywood Beauties:

Remember understanding and taking care of your skin can make a big difference. Applying make up can make you or break you, but first taking care of the skin and understanding basic steps can lead to success.

Knowing Skin Tone

After reading several posts now, you may finally have come to know your skin tone right?

Don’t answer yet, because trust me there is one more part of information that is essential in determining your skin tone. Remember understanding the skin tone not only provides structure for make up usage, but more importantly, it brings out healthy beauty and youth.  Using any kind of make up can cause skin damage. skin diseases,and skin deterioration. Once the damage is done it can cost you more to correct unhealthy skin texture  and it may or may not get healthy again, so it is very crucial you take care of your skin.

Our environment plays huge role in our “beauty.”  Our skin texture and tone changes according to the weather and season changes.

Skin tones are classified into catergories such as:

  • Warm
  • Neutral
  • Cool

I am going to show how to acknowledge which category you fit in, but please remember it may change due to many factors such as weather, season, stress, age, and etc.

Determining Skin Tone

When I was writing about skin tone, I realized it can be hard to read and understand clearly, so I researched and found nice clip that illustrates points of skin tone.

I would like to thank Ehow for providing an excellent clip on “Determining Skin Tone.”

Watch and feel free to comment, but please understand the clip is providing basic information not anything in depth. .

Understanding Skin Tones

Since we are discussing skin tones, why don’t we complete this topic first.

If someone asks you your skin color it is easy to say basic color such as white, brown, black, olive, and etc, but when asked what skin tone you have,  it is confusing and challenging to answer the question because we tend to have multiple tones.

Let us start determining and understanding skin tones. I have already mentioned there are many skin tones, so it can be challenging to figure out which tone is right for you.  Please remember your skin tone would determine the shades of make up that is right for you, which can and may be different from your mother and siblings.

There are two ways to determine what is your skin tone:

  1. Look at your nail without nail polish-what shade is it? The skin under your nail is your skin tone, but many times it is hard to really determine the exactness.
  2. Pinch the skin under your arm or any place the sun never shines. This is important because the place where sun does not shine would provide you with accurate answer.   Does the tone tend to appear more reddish-orange, reddish-blue, pinkish-blue, peachy or yellowish? Once you have answered that question determined, you’ll have a benchmark for your natural tone.
