  5 MINUTES TO A CREAMY COMPLEXION - by Editor
If you don't apply foundation before going out, you're making a mistake. Foundation, if applied well, can make your skin look soft, smooth, flawless and simply spectacular. 

Make sure the foundation matches your skin tone. 

Do you have a sponge for applying foundationNULL If not, get one. It ensures an even application. 

Mix a little moisturiser in your foundation. Most skins are dehydrated even though we may not realise it. In any case, moisturiser adds a sheen to the foundation. 

Mix an equal amount of foundation and moisturiser in the palm of your hand, and wipe it over your face. 

Blend it with a damp sponge and finish off with a dusting of compact powder. And voila! You won't be able to tear your eyes away from the mirror.

Comments:   skin success cream and soaps are very very goog for complexion..use it twci a day. or.. nevia fairness cream and lotions are also very good. Aqua color foundation or TV sticks r the only foundation that will give u a professional and flawless look.before foundation apply yellow base powder (in small quantity) after 3 minutes apply your foundation.at night use honey stick by BODY SHOP.creams made of coca butter are also good ,specialy in winter. d

Comments:   I have very very white skin and burn instantly in the sunlight even in winter it is very sad as i love the ocean....I think for those with a beautiful brown skin ,you are lucky.... to have pale skin it means NO SUN it also means NO FUN ,,,I ,have to wash at night wear long sleeves and carry an umbrella...isn't it ironic... I have very white skin and buy self tanning Ilotions ! I am a beautician and for those who wish to be light stay out of the sun ,also wear a sunscreen,use a mask daily of thick yogurt,lemon,grated cucumber with some of the juice squeezed out a little honey and thickened with a little oatmeal,leave 2 hors,rinse off and tone with crushed Hybiscus flowers in a small amount of water. then apply fresh cream from milk mixed with lemon.Evey day this should be done. If you want exact measuements contact me.

Comments:   A warm hello to people who are looking to have fair skin.I am of Northern european heritage and have unfortunately ,very very white skin..WE use self tanning lotions to appear to be "having a healthy tan " I see so many women who want to be white ...first of all living in Australia I can never go outside until late afternoon ,then must wear protective clothing and loads of the strongest sun protection cream...apart from using strong ,dangerous chemical bleaches there is not a lot one can do to eliminate the natural melanin or colour in the skin. I believe that all skin colours of this world are beautiful. The colour in the skin is the natural protection from harmful rays of the sun,so to stop the melanin or pigment forming STAY OUT OF THE SUN where possible. Every morning wash the face gently with a clean face cloth one for each day.... use a good quality non oily cleanser... leave on the face for a few minutes to sink in and use the warm ,steaming coth on your face for a little while to open the pores,then gently wipe off the cleanser ,do 3 times ,,morning and night..lay down with a comfortably warm wet towel over your face until it cools then gently wipe off the moisture again...follow with the mask of yoghut I mentioned earlier..substitute buttermilk for yoghurt if liked leave on as long as possible.. finish with a rinse of 1 tab, of strawberry yoghurt in a lage glass of cool water... blot dry and put a drop or 2 of sweet almond oil on skin near eyes being careful not to let any in the eyes...do this twice a day and once or twice add cornmeal to a little yoghurt to exfoliate the dead skincells ...hope this helps.Daily masks,natural ingedients.protection from sun use of limes,lemons . cucumbers are all slightly bleaching but take a longer time...dangerous chemicals are not the way to go...there are plenty on the market ..perhaps the one I know best is SK11 range also all asian websites for bleaching have a wide choice ... to be beautiful one must have a beautiful character and soul regardless of external transient so called beauty . MY daughter in law is Indian.dark skinned and exoctically beautiful.

Comments:   Hi veena..in answer to your questions...so many things affect the skin...how you think,what you eat,sleepe.t.c the best way to a beautiful skin is hydration..drink at least 6 glasses of pure water daily...eat a raw food diet of greens vegetables ,all salad vegetables, raw fruits,nuts...the so called super foods are blue berries,broccoli ,salmon.onions,spinach and so forth ..there are many books on this in particular The Perricone Promise is excellent...exfoliate your whole body daily for a week or so with cornmeal and yoguht massage in gently and warm shower off...then alternate with warm and cold showers to wake up the skin...breathe deeply smile and reax. best wishes Annishka
