Of course you’ve heard about homemade cosmetics. Being able to create cosmetics at home by yourself is a worthy¬†achievement. But those who decide to create their own¬†cosmetics should be aware of the fact that homemade cosmetics are not the same as the cosmetics containing chemical components that are sold in the store. Also, you should know that homemade cosmetic products cannot be stored as long as the products from the store, so you should be really careful not to apply spoiled cosmetics on your face. And of course, you should know the effects of natural products on your skin.
One of the major advantages of homemade cosmetics: you know all the ingredients in the recipes of your cosmetics and you can control the amount of this or that ingredient. ¬†This fact makes homemade¬†cosmetics pretty¬†safe to use. Through making your own cosmetics, you’ll be sure that they don’t¬†contain any synthetic or chemical components that can cause irritation or allergy. In addition, homemade cosmetics are much cheaper than storebought ones, because the ingredients are not expensive.
You can buy all the necessary ingredients for your homemade beauty products at¬†basically any¬†store. All the fruits, vegetables, essential oils and salts you need could¬†already be in your household, so it could be¬†a nice way to save money. It also helps to support an environmentally friendly way of life, because using natural components isn’t as harmful to the¬†environment. It’s nice to know that your cosmetic products don’t contain any harmful chemical components.
Glasses are no longer simply tools for improving your vision; they are now a fashion statement. Sure, your reading glasses at home may be outdated, but if you need a pair of eyeglasses to go out in public, it is important that you get frames that you feel good wearing.

Find Your Shape
One of the first steps in choosing a pair of glasses is knowing what the shape of your face is. There are four basic face shapes, and each can benefit from a flattering pair of eyeglasses. Take a look in the mirror at your face. If you have long hair, pull it back so you can see the true shape. If you have trouble discerning the shape, use this guide:
We all know Hollywood has a reputation for never aging, and there are plenty of stars who seem to have already had a drink from the Fountain of Youth. Helen Mirren, Jennifer Aniston and Halle Berry come easily to mind. But what about those celebrities who look a little worse for the wear? Below are some of the celebs who actually appear older than they really are, provided by River Place Mohs & Dermatologic Surgery Center.
Lindsay Lohan, 27
This is an easy one. Lindsay, who had an early career in childhood, seems to get older and older as her peers get more youthful. Hard partying and plenty of stints in rehab could be to blame here.
Fergie has all the makings of a stunner and she’s certainly a beautiful woman. But she hasn’t even hit 40 yet, a fact you wouldn’t know just by looking at her. This songstress does love her plastic surgery though, which could be part of the problem. Either way, she’s starting to look much older than smoldering husband Josh Duhamel.
Jason Segel, 33
Jason Segel is everyone’s favorite funnyman, and it’s no wonder he lands so many leading roles. But many of those parts are with actresses several years older than him. At 33, Jason looks much older than he actually is, which could account for his placement alongside much-older Cameron Diaz in “Bad Teacher.”
