Heat Treat to Beat Your Blemishes and Dark Spots

 

We all get tempted to squeeze a blemish to treat the problem, but with a risk of infection and scarring is there a better way? Heat treatments promise faster and safer blemish treatment, but how do they work?

Heat treatment devices attack a blemish to reduce the size and appearance in several ways.  Heat works to increase blood circulation and promote healing. Heat therapy can also help bring an infected blemish to a head so that it can be drained. The concentrated heat helps kill the  bacteria causing the blemish, and speed up the healing process while reducing inflammation.

For people with sensitive skin that find topical acne treatments too drying Heat Treatment devices can be a great way to battle acne. Here are a few popular treatment devices that use a heat and light technology to fight blemishes.

 

 

The first preventative acne-clearing system. By combining a topical acne treatment with a massaging heat the Zeno Heat Treat kills 99.9 percent of acne-causing bacteria in one hour.

The Klima Magic Wand uses heat and light technology to fight blemishes. Along with a promise to be one of the fastest acne treatment devices it also has a permanent tip saving you money with no replacement tips needed.

Klima Magic Wand

The Klima Magic Wand is a hand-held, battery operated device which makes pimples disappear fast. Using twin technologies of gentle heat and specified blue wavelength light. When the bio-compatible tip has direct contact with a blemish on the skin, it transfers heat deep into the follicle at a safe and pre-set temperature. It also zaps the blemish with specified-wavelength blue light. Both the heat/shock response and the radiated light aggravate the active proteins that keep the blemish thriving. This causes self destruction of the acne lesion, reducing inflammation and allowing the skin to return to a healthy condition. How effective is it?

Gwyneth Platrow: “I can’t do my own makeup”

Rich people problems. :)

In Gwyneth Paltrow’s latest Goop Newsletter, the Oscar-winner opened up that she cannot do her own makeup, and shares tips with how to do your own makeup.

Believe it or not, I am terrible at doing my own makeup. I’m decent at doing it for a friend, but when it comes to my own face, I never get it right. I have been wanting a step by step lesson for ages so I asked my London makeup artist, Emma Lovell, to show me how. One of my gorgeous school mum friends from my son Mosey’s class agreed to be the model (thank you, Kate!), and I learned so much. I hope it’s helpful for some of you!

Love,
gp

She gives a really great tutorial for how to prep your skin before makeup, how to apply daytime makeup, and then how to transform that into evening makeup. Check out the tutorial here!

Madonna launches new label for “older” women called ‘Truth or Dare’

Madonna, with the help of her 15-year-old daughter Lourdes, successfully launched ‘Material Girl’, a clothing line for tweens and teens.

Now, the 53-year-old singer is looking to cash in on the older crowd. She and her partner, the Iconix Brand Group, are launching a new label called ‘Truth or Dare’. The new line will focus on an older audience, targeting women aged 27-50.

The ‘lifestyle brand’ is due to launch next year with a fragrance and accessories.

An image of the bottle was released today – a minimalist, hexagonal white bottle with gold cap and simple, geometric logo.

Shoes, handbags and lingerie are expected to follow.

Madonna said that she had been approached many times in the past to create her own brand, but only now was the timing right.

She told WWD: ‘Over the past several years, I have been approached countless times to create my own brand.

‘The timing is right and I have found great partners in Iconix, who can help translate my vision to reality.’

Neil Cole, CEO of Iconix Brand Group, said that the success of Material Girl and Madonna’s star power indicate huge consumer demand for a second line.

He said: ‘The interest and excitement globally for brands developed by Madonna are significant.

‘After the highly successful launch of the junior brand Material Girl, we knew there would be a tremendous demand for a brand that Madonna herself is the face of and that truly captures her essence.’

NEW nail polish line – just for men!

To this day – our post on men’s nail polish back in 2007 – is our most talked about, most controversial post we’ve done so far. (If you have a minute you should check out the post and just read any of the 300 comments in the thread. Some really interesting stuff!)

Here at MHU, we’ve known for quite some time that there is a HUGE need for men’s beauty products – and we even talked about starting a men’s beauty site (but c’mon, who has the time!).

Here we’re getting our first look at a line of men’s nail polish that will release this month! More from Glamour:

Men’s skincare and grooming brand EvolutionMan will introduce a line of nail polishes to its assortment this month. I’m pretty sure Jared Leto is going to be excited about it. And we know we’ve got Johnny Depp on board. Will your guy be down for a MAN-icure?

The line consists of two sheer nail varnishes and three opaque nail ‘paints’ that retail for $14 each. Matte finishes and colors that veer from “the traditional black, blue and white that can be found on many a man’s nail” define the new range, according to the brand.

A shiny purple shade called Alter Ego (above) probably qualifies as the most daring. Although Dave Navarro has been wearing purple nail polish for years so what do I know.

What do you think? Would your guy ever wear polish?
