Let’s just say, we’re inspired. Defined by others as the “World’s Ugliest Woman”, Lizzie Velasquez refuses to let the rare syndrome that afflicts her dictate her life. Instead, she has channeled the negativity she faces day to day into motivation, encouraging others to reconsider how they conceptualize beauty. Her perspective is powerful, and one we aim to incorporate into our own thinking.

Q: I noticed that I have ingrown hairs between my eyebrows. Are there any Restorsea products that could help get rid of these?

A: Thanks for your question! I honestly am not sure that the enzyme will eat the dead skin that is plugging the hair follicle. However, I am currently developing a spray on/leave in scalp treatment designed to keep the hair follicles open that I plan to launch in the first half of 2014.

Wednesday, October 30, 2013 10:00:46 AM America/New_York

Ask any professional makeup artist, and they will tell you that using a primer is a great step to include in your makeup process. Napoleon Perdis, famed celebrtiy makeup artist, told TotalBeauty.com "not to prime is a crime!" And we definitely agree! Using a primer is a great way to protect your skin before layering on foundation. Using a primer is a great way to create a smoother look with your foundation. It can both moisturize your skin and fill in any lines. This will give your final look a more flawless finish. When it comes to primers Dior's Skin Finish Primer is a great option-- if your looking for a great luxurious primer.

Can your beauty products expire? 

Many active ingredients in skin care, especially anti-aging and acne treatments, degrade over time from oxygen and heat. Depending on the ingredients and the packaging, different products follow different rules for when you should toss them. Anything in an ampoule is meant for one-time use only and usually contains ingredients like Vitamin C or E that oxidize upon air exposure.  For peels and masks, buffering agents begin to evaporate after three months and can make active ingredients like glycolic acids more irritating. Acne products with benzoyl peroxide and salicylic acid begin decaying after four to six months of opening the product. You can keep them in the refrigerator for maximum potency. 

The FDA doesn't require comestic companies to provide expiration dates on their products, so beware of the shelf-lives on unmarked beauty products. Mascara has a shelf-life of two to three months, or as you start noticing clumps and weird smells. Lotion has a longer shelf-life of about two years, so a bottle with a pump is recommended over a jar. To protect your liquid foundation and concealers, keep it away from UV rays which can destroy preservatives. These have a shelf-life of about 6-12 months.

There's a risk with using expired makeup. Lip color cosmetics can carry bacteria since they're constantly exposed to your mouth. Using eye pencils and mascaras beyond their expiration dates sets up the risk for eye infections. Next time you're in your makeup bag, be prudent and check when your products are no longer usable.
