"Although aromatherapy should not be considered a miracle cure for serious emotional issues, the use of essential oils may assist, sometimes greatly, with particular emotional issues and emotional states." says Aromaweb. To assist with emotional issues and emotinal states the oils should never be used undilated on the skin. There are particular oils that need to be avoided if you are pregnant so its best to avoid all these oils during that time period. There is different ways these oils can be used that the best way is to use an oil burner and add a couple of drops of the particular oil. Other ways that these oils can be used will be discussed later on.

facts that you may not know

- senistive is not a skin type, its a skin condition as it changes through your life. a skin type is something that you're born with.

- chinese face mapping: look it up and find out what a break out in a particular area means. this is not always correct, it may mean you need to cleanse the area better but its a simple template.

- Using just a hand sanitiser to clean your hands doesn't work nearly as well as washing your hands. Hand sanitiser still leave germs on your skin.

- For every caffeine drink (coffee, energy drinks, soft drinks, etc) you have a day, you should add 2 more glasses of water onto the recommended 8 glasses of water.

- Are you using the right cleanser? All the different types of cleansers are made for particular types of skin.
milk - all.
cream - dry
foam - oily, combination
gel - oily, combination, normal
bar - oily, combination
lotion - all but sensitive

- If you're products aren't ph balanced than you are likely stripping off the acid mantle (sweat and oil mixed together) on your face which you need to protect your skin from bacteria and further causing more break outs.

- Waterproof mascara leaves an arylic film on your lashes damaging the lashes, avoid using this type of mascara unless needed. (Better yet, have your eyelashes tinted so you dont have to wear mascara while swimming)

- When washing dishes, do the gardening, it is essential to wear gloves to protect your hands and nails.

introduction i guess?

Every person wants someone to see themselves as beautiful and most people sit there wishing they are beautiful even if they already are, they just cant see it themselves. Beauty is not just about the way you were born and how you apply your make up, though make up has a bit to do with it.. Its about the way you feel about yourself, the way you look after yourself and how you can make yourself look and feel beautiful at whatever age you are. I'm here to just blog about something I love making people feel and look beautiful, i hope you enjoy and recommend this blog to your friends
