What is the best cleanser
for normal to oily skin with occassional breakouts. I want something

Colosé cleansing milk, formulated
with vitamin C and E, or
lotion is the best cleanser for normal and/or oily skin.
Hi. I sweat a lot (especially
on my forehead). How can i make it less visible?
sweating can cause a lot of anxiety. The medical term is Hyperhidrosis.
The only easy thing you can try is to apply an absobent powder such
as Colosé Talc Powder Should you find that powders are not enough you will have to visit your
doctor as there are precriptions powders that you can use and there
is also medication that you can take. The last resort is surgery to
remove the overactive sweat gland.
What's the difference between
perfume, cologne, toilet water and parfum spray—other than price?
in the concentrations are: Cologne is reserved for the men's field.
For women, there are three basic categories of fragrance: perfume, eau
de parfum and eau de toilette. Each is made up of alcohol, water and
fragrance oil. At the lower level, eau de toilette, there's less fragrance
oil; at the higher level, perfume, the most. You can see a wide range

Can I wear contact lenses
during a facial?
no harm will come from wearing your contacts but make sure that your
esthetician knows that you are wearing contacts. Ask what products will
be used during your facial. There should not be any ingredients that
will irritate your eyes. Personally I would take them out to be on the
safe side as you know the esthetician will be taking more precaution
not to apply the facial mixture close to your eyes. She may err on the
side of caution and leave too much area around the eye that will not
receive the benefits of the facial.
I got a really dark tan
on my face and would like to know what homemade mask can be used to
make it lighter?
A quick once
over with a wedge of lemon will pick up much of the excess color. No
lemon handy? Use a cotton ball and a little toner, preferably with alcohol.
That works too.
home remedy facial mask would be using egg whites. Use warm water on
your face, even wrap a warm towel around your face. A towel just out
of the dryer works well. Let your face dry naturally. Mix an egg white,
lemon juice and 1 teaspoon of vegetable oil. Apply this mixture to your
face starting at you chin and work upward and outward. Now lie back
for at least 15 minutes to 1/2 hour and then after the mixture has completely
dried on your face (neck too) remove with warm water.
How come I can wash my face
everynight with the same soap and my face will clear up and then about
a week later after my face has cleared up my face will get pimples again?
I do wear alot of make-up, I try to hide my pimples with cover up and
all of that. What can i do to keep my face clear for good?
We do not
recommend using soap on your face. You should either use cleansing
milk or cleansing
lotion. You should also use a herbal
mask once or twice a week for a deep cleansing. Please take
a look at our article on acne and the products offered to clear up facial imperfections such as pimples.
Does going to sleep with
mascara on give your eyes fine lines?
No, but it
is not wise to go to sleep with mascara on. It can cause a bacterial
infection and depending on the thickness of the mascara it can get into
your eye and cause red, swollen eyes in the morning, not to mention
the fact that you may wake up with raccoon eyes. A simple "in a
hurry" way to remove mascara before going to sleep is to use Colosé
eye makeup remover pads.
I have stretch marks on my
lower back and it kills me because I have tried all the `miracle` creams

How can you get your pores
unclogged and fast at home for very little money?
way to unclog pores is to do a facial or apply a face mask. A simple
home remedy would be using egg whites. Use warm water on your face,
even wrap a warm towel around your face. A towel just out of the dryer
works well. Let your face dry naturally. Mix an egg white and a small
amount of apple juice and vegetable oil, no more than one teaspoon.
Apply this mixture to your face starting at you chin and work upward
and outward. Now lie back for at least 15 minutes to 1/2 hour and then
after the mixture has completely dried on your face (neck too) remove
with warm water. Is there even a simpler way to unclogged pores? Yes, Colosé offers 5 different facial
masks from green clay to herbal for acne prone skin. They are
all reasonably priced and of the highest quality.
Hello, I am 36 years old,
I have quite severe acne scarring on my face, very oily skin with enlarged
pores & blackheads on both my middle face & my nose, I have tried several
times to remove these in different ways, but it seems that due to my
enlarged pores, they just keep coming back. Is there a way that I can
permanantly rid myself of these black heads & minimise my pores? Please
one thing you have to do is to get yourself into a daily cleansing routine.
We have a special right now on the Colosé
Acne Fighting System. Use these products faithfully until they
are gone. Do not become discouraged the first week as you will not see
any great improvement - it takes that long to bring all the impurities
to the surface. You may think that it is not working, but it is. In
the mean time, use concealer to hide to blackheads. You should not pop
them as this can cause more scarring...BUT, if this is something you
feel you must do...then first use a face cloth with warm water to soften
the hardened oil. Wrap a tissue around your fingers and add pressure
around the area. This will insure that you won´t have fingernail marks
on your skin. It is best to have a licensed esthetician or a dermatologist
remove blackheads. You must treat the underlying cause which is your
pores are not "breathing properly."
Hi, I recently learned the
Co enzyme Q10 is bright yellow in colour, I am wondering if my face
creams that I purchase contain only trace amounts of it as my night
and day cream are white in colour, surely they should be yellowish?
In its raw
state Co enzyme Q10 may be deep orange/yellow in color. In cosmetics
the enzyme is usually incorporated with other ingredients. Colosé
Co enzyme Q10 creams incorporate the enzyme with nanoliposomes thus
rendering the color of the cream white. Your conclusion is wrong. The
creams with Co Q10 can definitely be white. You should be more concerned
with the results of your face cream on your skin. Is is making your
skin smooth and soft, is it decreasing fine lines and wrinkles? If you
are not receiving good results from your face creams than perhaps it
is time to switch brands. Colosé creams that contain Co enzyme
Q10 are Day Cream Multiactive and Night Cream Multiactive.
I am an African American
women with scars from Mosquito bites on my legs. My scar are darker
than complexion. If I were to tan do you think that would hide the scars?
Or should I consult a dermatologist? Or is there any products on the
market that can fade the scars away to blend in with my complexion?
not equalize the skintone on your legs. You can either try to hide the
scars with concealer products such as Dermablend
leg and body cover cream or a lightenting cream made by Sudden
change. It is always advisable to consult a dermatologist when
skin "flaws" become an issue. There is laser surgery available
if you want to go that route. A dermatologist might recommend microdermabrasion.
If you are at all prone to keloids though I would not recommend going
the surgery route. You can read about laser surgery in our articles section.
I cleanse, tone and moisturize
morning and night but I`m still very spotty is there anything I can
do to get rid of my spots?
add a Face Cream with
Retinol to your routine. Apply evenly on face and neck every
morning and in the evening on cleansed skin. The cream can also be used
as a base under makeup. Applied regularly to the skin it will create
a smoother and rosier glow. It is used to aid in the reduction of lines,
wrinkles, and to fade age spots. Colosé
Cream Vitalisante with Retinol.
What is the difference and
which one is better for the effectiveness and side effects for taking
care skin complexion and wrinkles?
one anti-wrinkle cream is Colosé
Cream Egalisante. It is a collagen cream and the active ingredients
are from plants so there are not any side effects. Next is our Creme
Multiactive which contains Co Enzyme Q10. People have different
preferences as to what cream to use. Both of the products contain superb
ingredients so I can only suggest that you read about them and choose
the one that appeals to you. We have no complaints on either cream and
they sell equally well, both being in our top 10 products.

I swim in a public pool and
don’t want to go into the shower area afterwards, but would rather come
home. However, it is a 15-20 minute drive home before I can shower off
the chlorine. I really wonder if it does any good waiting that long
and besides, the water at home is treated with chlorine anyway so does
it really matter if I shower off at the pool? Also, should I put lotion
on after I get out, or just something like baby oil? Thanks
you are suggesting is perfectly fine. The reason is that the chlorine
does not make the skin dry and/or itchy. It is being in the water for
long periods of time that drys out the skin because the water removes
the natural oil on the surface layer of the skin. The stored fluid in
the skin cells evaporates quickly without the protection of the natural
oils and that is why the skin feels dry and/or itchy after swimming.
You can apply either lotion or baby oil on your skin when you get out
of the pool. After getting home and taking your shower you may want
to apply a more intense moisturizer like Colosé
Milk of Aloe or Milk
My skin has developed a greyish

for solving this? It makes my skin look like it`s got a dirty mark there.
a condition in which dark areas appear on the cheeks, forehead, and
lips. It can be caused by the hormonal changes associated with pregnancy
or menopause and by taking oral contraceptives or hormone replacement
therapy. Melasma is benign and usually will fade when the hormones are
stabilized. However, you can quicken the process by using skin lighteners
to even out your skin tone.

to use a concealer along with your foundation. Colosé
Cream Powder Concealer is an excellent product, but it will
not give you a "heavy coverage". If this is not enough, then
you should try the products offered by Dermablend, such as their Cover

I am 25 years old, and am
an Indian. I have dark circles and fine lines/wrinkles around my eyes.
For the past 4 years, I have been using concealers to try and camouflage
the dark circles. Due to repeated use of concealers ( and also I didn`t
know before that one is not supposed to apply too much pressure under
the eyes ..), I have wrinkles under the eye now. My problem is that,
I really need to use to a concealer to cover my dark circles, but using
a concealer accentuates my wrinkles. How do you think I can overcome
this problem? Your advise and time will be very much appreciated. Many

Colosé just introduced a new eye gel called Gel
Magique that is a highly advanced anti-wrinkle gel. You may
also want to try a skin lightening cream such as Fade
Away Dark Circles made by Sudden Change or you may want to try Dermablend
Quick Fix for dark circles, both products can be found at www.makeupmyway.com.
Be sure that you use a very creamy concealer. One of my favorite products
is Colosé compact cream
powder. It is wonderful in decreasing the appearance of dark
circles. I know
that age 25 is young to be considering anti-aging gels and creams but
you need to be very deligent in moisturizing your skin now in order
to delay the aging process.
Just recently I wore make
up to a party. As soon as I got home from the party I washed my face
to get rid of all the gunk. Later in the afternoon after I woke up my
eyes felt slighty heavy. My eyelids, above and under my eyes looked
wrinkled. I used Johnson Baby shampoo and a warm wash cloth to srub
the area. This is the third time that this has happened to me. Is it
caused by the brand of makeup or am I just allergic to it?
I do not
think this is an allergy to your eye make-up because the area around
the eye would be puffy and probably red. Perhaps the eye make-up is
drying out the thin skin around the eyes. Next time try washing with
a cleansing milk or cleansing cream and applying a moisturizer around
your eyes afterward. I do not know of anyone washing their face with
baby shampoo so I cannot give you any advice on that. But be gentle
with your skin, do not "scrub" the area, rather use light finger tip
circular motions around the eye. My main suggestion is to just try a
different routine to see if you can rule out the cause of the wrinkles.
Perhaps some cleansing wipes made specifically for make-up removal would
come in handy for you.
I have dark black marks around

I`m 22 and I have pretty
clear skin (combination) with the occassional hormonal breakout. I find
that I need very light moisturizers for sensitive skin when I do use
moisturizers. I would like I use some sort of anti-wrinkle cream for
my eyes as a preventitive measure, but everything I`ve tried (Oil of
Olay, Mac, Almay) gives me pimples, which I never get there otherwise.
Any suggestions? I would also like to know of a very very light facial
sunblock to wear under my make up or alone that won`t give me pimples
or feel greasy or heavy.

I have very dark skin but
I`m not African, how can I lighten my skin with home made recipes?
me say that I have not tried this, but in my search for an answer for
you I found this tip: Squeeze half a lemon and mix the juice with one
beaten egg white. Leave on your face overnight or, for a quick pick-me-up,
just 15 minutes. Splash warm water on your face to rinse. It helps to
removes blotches, because the lemon works as a bleaching agent. The
tip is for a homemade facial. But I do know that lemon juice can be
applied to facial hair to lighten it. I do not know if lemon juice can
lighten skin, but it is always worth a try before purchasing a commercial
skin lightening cream.

several options to decrease the appearance of facial hair. There are
invisible beaching creams such as Invisi-Bleach and hair removal creams
such as Nair. Depilatory creams dissolve the hair at the base of the
follicle. They are ideal for widespread areas (like the legs), but can
be problematic when used on the face because they irritate the skin
and usually don't remove all of the hairs. On the plus side, depilatory
creams are a relatively inexpensive option. On average, results will
last for one to two weeks. A new product called Sheer Splendor claims
to remove unwanted hair and stop the growth of new hair by chemically
weakening the follicles until the hair simply stops growing back. (Note:
we have not tested this products ourselves). Waxing really does make
your hair grow in lighter over time because the wax gets into the hair
follicle and pulls the hair from the root so it grows back less thick
than when the shaft is shaved. Laser procedures can be permanent or
can be used more as a "laser waxing," or temporary hair removal.
decide on the proper removal method, however, first determine that the
cause of the hair growth is not hormonal. If you are experiencing an
abnormal growth of hair on the face or if the hair is very thick, you
should consult your physician to determine the underlying causes before
you embark on a removal regimen.
I wear a lot of stage makeup
and the heat of the lights pushes that makeup into my pores. My pores
are really cloged and developing blackheads. I don`t know how to get
rid of them. I am freaking out. My skin looks horrible. Please help.
One of the
most important cosmetic tasks is to assist the natural skin's scaling
process by removing dead cells completely. Without proper care, the
old cells will combine with skin oils and clog pores causing blackheads
and pimples. You will need to do more than just a general cleansing
routine as you need a deep cleansing at least twice a week. To accomplish
this you will need to get in the habit of faithfully using a face mask.
Using a face mask with Calendula added will be beneficial for you as
Calendula aids in the elimination of toxic residue from the skin.
