Control Corrective Skin CareWe’re all familiar with them, we’ve seen them time and time again on TV commercials and magazine spreads; the ambitious, and often outrageous, claims made by the cosmetic companies about their latest “Wonder” products. You know the ones we mean; “Reverses the signs of aging”, or “Rejuvenates and fortifies the skin” that sort of thing.

Often it’s left to consumers to exercise due diligence and common sense, and more often than not we exercise just that, but it’s easy to be seduced by the promise of looking younger, or, in many cases, just plain blinded by “Science”.

A fascinating article in mnn.com recently tackled this very issue and attempted shead a little light on this often confusing area:

“So how does a company navigate through the gray area of claims? Many companies rely on “soft” claims or claims that make very general statements to describe the product. Soft claims make it easier to set consumer expectations without gaining unwanted attention from the FDA. The problem with soft claims is that they can sometimes be so vague or “soft” that they really don’t mean much at all.”

An explanation on how the FDA also sees the cosmetic industry is equally fascinating:

“According to the FDA, drugs are products — not including food — intended to diagnose, cure, treat or prevent disease, as well as products intended to affect the structure or any body function in humans or animals. Cosmetics, on the other hand, are products introduced to the body with the intention of cleansing, beautifying, promoting attractiveness or altering the appearance. The FDA does not recognize the term “cosmeceutical;” in the eyes of the FDA a product is a drug, cosmetic or both.”

According to recent news outlets (Marie Claire), Kylie Minogue has dished out a few of her favourite beauty and skin care tips.

An eyelash curler lights up eyes if you have nothing on them. That extra bit of eyeliner will make your eyes pop,” she told Marie Claire magazine.

Fresh does a foundation powder that in photos just makes you look flawless. A bit of sheen all over the face, whether it’s obvious or not, works too, although it’s difficult to get away with once you reach a certain age.

We have to hand it to her she looks fab for over 40 so she’s obviously doing something right!

skin care tipsWe all know that the beauty and skin care business is an industry worth billions every year. What we may not have noticed is how it’s starting to become the dominant interest on social media site such as Youtube and Pinterest.

In a recent article to lufkindailynews.com contributing writer, Lauren Azios, explains how social media websites are empowering everyday folk to get involved with sharing beauty tips, advice, and tutorials.

Hair- and makeup-related videos have exploded on YouTube. In the top five searches on YouTube, as well as Google, women are looking for beauty tutorials, advice and information. Beauty gurus record videos such as “How to create the perfect smoky eye,” “How to curl your hair with a flat iron,” and “How to duplicate celebrity looks,” and upload them to the popular video-sharing website.

What makes this so special is that normal people, with little-to-no budget are creating the sort of viral material that the multi-million dollar cosmetic companies so often fail to achieve.

She goes on to explain:

Once uploaded, these videos have the potential to receive hundreds, thousands and sometimes millions of views. A beauty video can go viral in a matter of days or even hours, racking up views due to people spreading the link through social networks like Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and others. YouTube users can watch, comment and post video responses.

If you are interesting in makeup, beauty, or skin care, and if you have access to a camcorder, maybe it’s time you started uploading a few videos yourself. You never know, it could be massive!
