Meanwhile place the salmon, skin side down, into a large sauté pan with the coconut milk, broth and bay leaf…

How to Get Rid Your Post-Halloween Makeup

When it comes to painting on a Halloween-worthy face, while you might use some quality glitter, lipstick and eyeliner, covering your entire face in color typically relies on costume makeup. Party store makeup is similar to that of costume makeup or face paint, which can unfortunately clog pores. In addition to making your skin susceptible to breakouts, party store Halloween makeup can be heavy, which might make it harder for your skin to breathe — and even harder to remove once the night is over. 

Ridding your face of Halloween makeup involves a couple of steps that go beyond the simple makeup-remover-one-and-done. Just like I recommend double-cleansing when wearing a full face of traditional makeup, the same is true for your cat, witch, zombie, etc, makeup post-Halloween.

Why You Need a Serum

Unlike a moisturizer, serums have a lipid-soluble base which allows the active ingredients to penetrate into the epidermis instead of lying on the surface. This way, they can offer highly-concentrated doses directly to your skin which makes them great for targeting specific concerns like wrinkles, brightness, acne or hydration.

The Best Skincare Treatments

There are thousands of beauty products on the market. With so many options available, it is hard to tell which ones deliver on their promises and which ones will not. A good way to determine a product’s effectiveness is to read the ingredients list. The best beauty products will feature some of the following ingredients. Alpha-Hydroxy Acids: Great for Brightening, Acne, Wrinkles, and Anti-Aging Alpha-hydroxy acids (AHAs) are a popular ingredient in health and beauty products. They help smooth fine lines and wrinkles, improve the texture and tone of skin and eliminate blemishes. Many anti-aging products contain alpha hydroxyl acids. Glycolic and lactic acid are the most commonly used types of alpha hydroxyl acid. Malic, citric and tartaric acids are other types of AHAs. This ingredient also exfoliates. It removes dead skin cells so that new skin cells can form. Alpha-hydroxy acids also encourage the production of collagen and elastin.  Algallure’s Skin Care has glycolic in one their p…

The Benefits of Sweet Almond Oil

Almond oil had been used extensively for its health benefits and as a beauty aid much before science caught up with the goodness of this seed oil. Very popular in Southeast Asia and in the Mediterranean region where the Almond tree was first domesticated, the almond kernels and the nutty oil extracted from them were credited with promoting heart and skin health.
Now we know that the oil is rich in Vitamin E, monounsaturated fatty acids, proteins, potassium and zinc, besides a number of other minerals and vitamins, which explains why it is so good for our heart, skin and hair. And why it is in theAlgallure's  Age-Defying Night Cream  This Super antioxidant PhycoDerm™, derived from marine red microalgae, along with Sweet Almond Oil, fights free radicals while replenishing and renewing skin.
