#TheSkinProject All About Skin Cleansing!

20131201-141244.jpgI’m excited to announce that I’m involved in a cool beauty blogger project called #TheSkinProject! Herein our participating group of bloggers will be discussing their various skincare routines and favorite products. The topic du jour: cleansing!

I take a comparatively simple approach to cleansing: good old fashioned washing morning and night with my cleanser of choice (currently iQ Derma Clear Remedy Purifying Cleanser). I have combination skin with easily clogged pores, so I find this cleanser helps strip pores of dirt and oil without drying my skin out in the arid desert I inhabit.

A New You From Top Down

A New You from the Top Down with a Synthetic WigSometimes you feel pretty good about you, and how you look, but you know you could feel better, if something were different.  Maybe it is time to put some new hair into your life.  Consider the versatility and style of a synthetic wig, and you may be ready for a new look that helps to change how you feel about you.

Experience the Ease

There is nothing as freeing as being able to finish your hairstyle, completely ready to go out, in just moments.  It may take some practice at first, but you will soon find that you can don your wig in a fraction of the time you once spent styling and primping toward elusive perfection.  Now, slip it on, adjust it, and enjoy the perfect hair of your dreams.

Hairstyle Gripe: Overly Long Emo Bangs

redhead Red hair bangs in faceI have a bit of a complaint about a hairstyle I’m seeing way too much: in the emo (or “scene”, the term the cool kids are using to differentiate themselves even further) tradition, teenagers everywhere have long, pointy bangs dripping down their faces. What’s going on with that? When did every 15 year old decide they were Pete Wentz?

I’m all for the punkish, edgy look, but these choppy, razor-cut bangs (which some new hipsters are referring to as “fringe” – confusing since I thought that meant a collection of thick, layered, straight-cut lash-brushing lovely bangs, not sticky Pokemon styles) have got to stop somewhere; more specifically, somewhere on your forehead.
