best Argireline cream

Argireline or Acetyl Hexapeptide-3 is a peptide mostly used in skincare products. It works in the same way as Botox by inhibiting muscle function, thus helping to lift and shape the skin.

When it comes to gaining or maintaining a more youthful appearance, not everyone would choose (or can even afford) to get plastic surgery to get rid of fine lines and wrinkles. Surgery carries quite a few risks and the recovery time can be just as onerous.

To address this inconvenience, the skincare industry introduced the Argireline cream, a peptide cream that works in the same way as Botox.

The difference is that unlike Botox, which is injected by a doctor, Argireline is applied directly to the skin as a cream or serum.

Users of Argireline creams and serums have reported a diminishing in the appearance of wrinkles and smoothing of fine lines by up to 30%. For a noninvasive method, Argireline creams work.

Top 3 Best Face Masks for Blackheads


Blackheads are a symptom of acne, a skin condition in which pores of the skin become blocked.

The pores of the skin become blocked as a result of excess sebum produced at the base of the hair follicles, often as a result of hormone changes, especially during puberty.

Sebum contains a dark pigment, melanin, which oxidizes and turns black when exposed to the air. This is why blackheads have a dark appearance.

How blackheads form

There are many myths regarding the causes of blackheads. One is poor hygiene or inadequate face washing.

Blackheads are not caused by dirt. Scrubbing your face obsessively is not a good way to get rid of your blackheads. Excessive scrubbing and washing of your face (or skin) strips your skin of its natural oils making your skin to produce sebum to compensate for the stripped oils making it a vicious cycle all over again.

 e commerce

Six years ago, I finally settled on starting an eCommerce startup. A cousin’s courier service startup inspired me, and I had always been fascinated with the idea of providing solutions to people by offering products/services to tackle their problems.

But it was not easy. Starting an internet startup in a third world country was really strenuous for me. There were moments I lacked electricity for weeks, low-strength internet data and other difficulties I had to battle with during those times, coupled with some business mistakes and losing a lot of money too along the way.

However, I didn’t give up. I learned, modified where necessary and grew. In my fourth year of running my e-commerce business, I finally hit my annual 6-figure revenue target.

Below I have outlined some core lessons that have stuck with me as I worked to become a six-figure earner. The first is:

1. Always Focus and Measure Your Business Metrics.

That was definitely the beginning point for me. I had to learn to stop moving faster than I had time to think. The first hurdle for me was mastering the ability to pause. A lot entrepreneurs tend to become so busy that they keep running without evaluating whether they’re actually on track or not. Continue reading

If adding sunscreen to your morning regime feels like an unnecessary step, consider this statement from the Skin Cancer Foundation: “More than 90% of the visible skin changes associated with aging is caused by the sun’s ultraviolet rays.”

When it comes to protecting your face – your whole body from UVA and UVB rays, your most important defense is sunscreen.

Using sunscreens especially on your oily or acne-prone skin may feel a bit like a misnomer. After all, sunscreens are comedogenic and tend to clog pores leading to breakouts and acne.

Fortunately, there are tons of oil-free sunscreens that protect your skin from the harsh rays of the sun and prevent breakouts at the same time.

5 Best Noncomedogenic Moisturizer You Should Use on Your Face

Non-comedogenic Moisturizers

What does Noncomedogenic Moisturizer do and what does it Noncomedogenic mean?
In order to understand what “noncomedogenic” means, it may be helpful to break down the word.

A comedo (or comedones, if more than one) is a type of pimple that can form on your skin.

A comedo is the result of a clogged pore. Pores are the tiny openings in your skin that you can see when you look very closely, especially in a magnifying glass. Inside those pores are hair follicles- sacs beneath the skin that house the hair roots.

When your body produces excess sebum (the oily substance on the skin) this excess sebum can combine with dead skin cells and sometimes bacteria to plug up the pore. The result is a pimple – a comedo.

“Non-comedogenic” is a term used to refer to ingredients that do not block pores and promote pimples.

What are noncomedogenic moisturizers?

top face washes

Most people experience blemishes and bumps well into their adult years with some – such as those with acne rosacea- not having acne problems until well into their twenties.

For some people, having acne in your twenties can feel like the revenge of puberty while you try to find makeup that hides your bumps. Fortunately, there is a way around this.

Face washes are products specially formulated for acne. What makes these products very effective is that they often contain salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide which helps to clear acne sores. Some cleansers, however, contain alcohol which tends to dry out the skin causing breakouts so you might need to moisturize after using cleansers.

Use only light, non-comedogenic (oil-free) moisturizers which do not aggravate acne.

This list of skin care products has got something for everyone. There are face wash formulas for all different skin types, from sensitive to acne-prone to combination to dry to oily and even those of us with rosacea.
