Why is deep cleansing noteworthy?

If you don’t follow a skincare routine, you are not taking care of your skin properly! Your skin goes through a lot of stress because of your hectic daily routines, and it needs to be taken care of. The sweat from your cardio, the makeup products you use daily, dirt, pollution, and other external attackers put our skin through a lot of strain.

Why are the skincare products you regularly use not showing the results? Well, putting on all those products from your collection might not be enough! You might think that all those serums and face creams are doing their job on your skin. But you might just leave the dominant step of your daily skincare routine, and that is cleansing.

Do you want to give your skin a healthy glow that you see in tv commercials and roadside banners? Ladies, you need to deep cleanse. If you are not washing your face regularly, dirt and impurities might build up on your skin’s surface. This will prevent other skincare products from entering the epidermis and give your skin the nourishment that it needs. So firstly, using a face cleanser will help get rid of all the impurities and dirt build-up. Secondly, excess build-up of dirt can trap sebum and dead skin cells, which will result in you having unwanted acne. And lastly, using a good moisturizer after washing your face will help your skin maintain the required hydration and moisture levels. (1) (2)

The largest organ of our body, our skin, needs a lot of sustenance. It is crucial to undertake a deep cleansing ritual at least once a week. Below is the breakdown of the steps you need to undergo for a deep cleaning routine.

Cleanser

If you want a good cleanser to clear out the surface impurities, use our (Saeed Ghani – Papaya Face Cleanser) with mild ingredients that will smoothly take off that layer of dirt to give you a clean feel.

Exfoliation

Scrubbing your face once or twice each week can help you remove the dead skin and make your skin look younger. Our gentle exfoliator (Saeed Ghani – Cucumber Face Cleanser) works gently on your skin, making it fresh and smooth.

Face mask

A clay mask helps in soaking up the oils, toxins, and dirt from your blocked pores. This makes it easier for the other skincare products, such as serums and moisturizers, to better absorb into your skin. Use our organic clay mask (Mana Beauty and spirit – Universal Radiance Mask) to rejuvenate your skin.

Toner

The use of toner is often ignored, but it is a prime part of deep cleansing. Our (Mana Beauty and spirit – Floral Mist Hydrating Face Toner) helps in maintaining your skin’s natural pH levels.

Moisturizer

Do you think you don’t need a moisturizer? You are wrong! You should regularly moisturize your skin regardless of your skin type. The deep cleansing process can eradicate the required moisture from your pores, so it is vital to use a good moisturizer to balance your face’s moisture levels. Use (Mana Beauty and spirit – Clarity Body Cream) moisturizer for an effortless application. (3)

Happy cleansing!

Time to treat your under eyes

At some point in your lives, you all have looked into the mirror and wondered, where did those puffy eyes come from? Under-eye wrinkles, eye circles, and puffiness around your eyes are a really common demonstration of age-related changes in the skin. The overall lifetime sun exposure also plays a significant part in their appearance.

The skin surrounding your eyes is the first part of your body that shows signs of aging. Do you know why? Because the skin around your eyes is the most fragile. You express yourselves with your eye statement. They blink, they squeeze, they can show excitement and anger. And all of these eye expressions can lead to premature aging. However, other reasons that can cause premature aging are ultraviolet rays and your lifestyle choices. According to a study, the skin around your eyes is more exposed to wrinkles, fine lines, and puffiness because that area of your body does not have the required collagen and as many oil glands. (1)(2)

Whenever someone looks at your face, the first thing they notice is your eyes. You might look old and tired just by your appearance. But don’t worry! Those eye circles, wrinkles, and puffiness are not permanent. You can rewind years off your face by taking care of the delicate skin around your eyes.

In addition to using eye creams for treating your eye issues, it’s time for you to change your general lifestyle and routines to change the look of your eyes. Keep your eye area moisturized, as dry skin can lead to the formation of wrinkles sooner than you imagine. Be gentle while removing your makeup. While applying other eye care products, use a pinky finger and apply minimal pressure. Religiously apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen every day on the upper and lower part of your eye. Your diet and lifestyle can also decide whether your eyes look young or old. Get your required 7 to 9 hours sleep per night, eat healthily, drink plenty of water and quit smoking!

Let us talk about the ingredients that become your best friend in treating your eye issues. For general eye issues, look for Niacinamide, Vitamin C, Vitamin E, and green tea. Retinoid, retinol, Vitamin A, and peptides are good for treating your eye puffiness. Caffeine, green tea, willow herb, and dipeptide-2 works for puffiness. Vitamin C, arbutin, soy, hydroquinone, and niacinamide are best to treat your eye circles.

 Plush Natural 3 in 1-night cream is enriched in retinol, hyaluronic acid, and Shea Butter. These ingredients play an important role in coping up your dark circles by proper moisturizing, decreasing the hyperpigmentation areas and uplifting the under-eye skin.

Your daily moisturizer may not be sufficient for that delicate eye-area skin, so opt for creams and moisturizers specially designed for your eye area. Visit https://www.purefayce.com for the best eye care creams and serums, and give your eyes the treatment they deserve.

It’s time to say goodbye to those panda eyes!

Is it time to change your deodorant?

Does your sweat on hot summer days make you feel uncomfortable? Well, it is natural. But how do you deal with it? Deodorants? It’s high time we look into reality before making decisions. Deodorants and antiperspirants are used for tackling two of our most embarrassing problems: body odor and sweat.

Body odor is created by the bacteria that feed on the fatty oils in your sweat. Some of you have been using chemical deodorants that claim to remove all the bacteria from your underarms and make you smell pleasant. But are those deodorants even safe? Are they really doing you a favor, or is it bad for your body?

Did you know that using chemical deodorants can be lethal? In this article, you will get to know some shocking facts about the chemical deodorants we have been using for years.

Rubbing those chemicals on your skin can be dangerous in ways you can not imagine! Some chemicals in these deodorants can pass through the epidermis of your skin, and they can be dangerous for hormones, which are responsible for your body’s reproduction and development.

According to Heather Petisaul, an associate professor of biology, who explained that once you put food into your body, the liver and the digestive system break it down but if you apply something on your skin, it can enter your bloodstream without being metabolized (1).

Using chemical deodorants can stop you from sweating. No sweat means no bacteria and hence, no body odor. But do either of these do us any harm? Sweat works like a natural filtration system of your body, which helps to release toxins. Without sweating, toxins will grow inside of your body, causing serious health risks. (2)

Do you read ingredients before making a deodorant purchase? I bet not! Most of us are just concerned about their scent. But did you know that some ingredients used in the deodorants may be harmful? Those ingredients are parabens, aluminum, triclosan, phthalates, and fragrance. These ingredients can trouble your body’s hormonal activity, estrogen levels and may lead to the production of cancer cells. They have also been linked to Alzheimer’s, but further study is to prove these claims are required. (3)

No need to worry! There are still some organic deodorants that save you from using these harmful ingredients while keeping you smelling garden-fresh. So ladies, always go through the list of ingredients once, before buying those deodorants. Look for organic deodorants that are paraben and Fragrance-free.

Our organic (Mana Beauty and spirit – Fung Shui Deodorant) works wonders. Ingredients like shea butter and coconut oil help to nurture the skin and to cease body odor. If you want to get rid of body odor in a clean way, use organic deodorants. Visit our website https://www.purefayce.com to find the best organic deodorants, and save your body from going through serious upshots.

You should check two things before buying a halal nail color:

You just need determination, discipline, and a good regimen to have glowing skin. All those models you see on your tv have good lifestyle habits that help maintain their skin. It’s not just the big-budget skin treatments.

Our skin is the largest organ of our body, and it needs our time and consistent effort to glow. In this article, we will go through the habits we need to adopt to get youthful skin.

1- Keep your skin hydrated!

If you want to have healthy skin, this is a very significant ritual that you can not ignore. Just buy an organic moisturizer and apply it to your skin, day and night. We must give our skin the moisture that it needs. No matter what skin type you have, always keep your skin hydrated.

Hydrating your skin from the inside is as crucial as it is for the outside. Our skin’s tissue needs the right amount of water to do its job congruously. Drinking plenty of water also helps to keep your skin hydrated from the inside and gives you healthy-looking glowing skin. (1)

Cleanse

A thick layer of dirt and impurities can build up on your skin every day, clogging your pores. You should cleanse to keep your skin clean from all the impurities so that other skincare products can better penetrate your skin to work correctly.

Beauty sleep

How important is sleep for your skin? It’s totally okay to cancel plans and say to your friends that I need to go to bed! A night of good sleep is as important as getting a good skin regimen. According to a study, poor quality sleep may cause premature signs of aging. Sleeping for 7 to 9 hours is very important for our skin to regenerate and heal after a long tiring day, so your skin can prepare itself for the following day. (2)

A persistent workout routine

Do you know working out can be beneficial for all organs of your body, including your skin? Physical exertion is also good for your skin as it increases the blood flow and takes the free radicals and waste products out of your body. Exercise helps in purifying our skin cells by increasing blood flow. (3)

Use a broad-spectrum sunscreen every day

You should always protect your skin from the sun. Ultraviolet rays can damage our skin and may cause premature signs of aging. The use of SPF can protect you from getting wrinkles, fine lines, discoloration, and uneven skin tone. Use can buy our exceptional products at https://www.purefayce.com. (4)

Use our Bioderma SPF 30 product. It plays an important role in the protection of skin cells from hazardous UV rays of the sun.

Healthy diet

Healthy food is vital for healthy skin. Eat fruits and vegetables so that required proteins and vitamins get into your system. It is crucial for the production of collagen that is good for your skin elasticity.

Women Entrepreneurship

Women Entrepreneurs are the change-makers in today’s world. Striving to increase their economic participation, their productivity and their impact on the next generation is making way for a more wholesome society. Women are increasingly interested in finding freedom and flexibility in their earnings by setting up their own businesses.  Though there are still inequalities between men and women in this context, we see diversity in the entrepreneurial context, because of a rise in women entrepreneurship. The desire and need to be financially independent, and to make better use of their time is driving this change.

Economic pressure in Pakistan has also given rise to women’s entrepreneurship. Rising inflation and growing family needs have driven the dual-income household trend in Pakistan. Increased awareness, education, and the desire to be independent have encouraged women to become financially empowered.  Lack of structured employment opportunities and societal constraints for women to commute to work has pushed many women to set up businesses from the comfort of their homes. Increased support from NGOs and the growth of internet penetration have also encouraged women to explore opportunities to directly connect with customers. (1)

The Center for International Private Enterprise (CIPE) is actively promoting the importance of women’s entrepreneurship and puts light on how the empowerment of women plays an important part in developing democracy and the growth of the economy. (2)

A lot of encouragement and support is needed to grow the women’s entrepreneurship ecosystem. Development of skills required to make a business successful, through formal or informal means is essential. Being able to accept challenges, having the drive and patience to persevere, and is committed to delivering results are some of the key skills. With Increased urbanization and industrialization, the role of women entrepreneurs should be acknowledged for social development and economic progress. Pakistan is the 6th most populous country in the world and 50% of this population is female. However, the economic participation of women is amongst the lowest in the world. Purefayce is driving the change for women in Pakistan by providing them a platform to connect with their customers with a simple click.

Home-based Beauty & Skincare segment in South Asia.

During Covid-19, a lot of businesses faced decline. International trade restrictions gave birth to many home-based beauty brands in South Asia. The awareness of beauty, skincare, especially conscious beauty is increasing. The pandemic lockdowns brought lockdowns and social distancing and the demand for makeup reduced considerably. However, staying home, having time to themselves, increased interest in skincare

Between 2016 to 2019, there was a yearly 6% growth seen in the cosmetic industry according to Euromonitor International. The average annual growth of the industry in Indonesia was 8% between 2016 and 2019, and it was further forecasted to increase by the average rate of 6.3%, between 2019 to 2022. The market declined in Thailand between 2019 and 2020, but it was again expected to rise by 2% annually on average. The skincare industry showed an overall increase, however, the demand for halal products was the highest. (4)

E-commerce

The ease of e-commerce has also increased the sale of home-based products, especially during the Covid pandemic. Entrepreneurs do not face high market entry costs e.g. the costs of billboards, pamphlets, and television advertisements. They can market their products using their creative skills, through social media or on their websites, to reach most of the potential customers. The product information reaches a larger market in less time. So the use of E-commerce has also given rise to home-grown, natural, organic beauty and skincare products. (5)

Beauty bloggers

The growth of beauty bloggers and influencers has led to an increased awareness of skincare routines and the importance of personal care. This has also positively impacted the overall skincare industry. There are various routines, morning, evening, bedtime that people want to subscribe to. Buying has seen an upward trend based on recommendations of beauty bloggers. However, this trend has negatively impacted the importance of a personalized approach to skincare routines. Every skin type is different, and every product will react differently to each person.

Home-based brands usually approach local beauty bloggers to collaborate, make sales, and make people aware of the products. When the target audience observes their favorite bloggers using those products, it automatically makes them want that product. Hence, increasing the home-based market of skincare products.

Organic products

Nowadays, everyone is aware of the harmful effects of synthetic products on skin and health, which has given a rise to the demand for natural and organic skincare products. This has fueled the strong growth of brands that have organic/vegan/paraben-free products. Consumers want products that are environmentally friendly, free of parabens, toxins, and harmful chemicals.

Having a skincare regimen – Is it sufficient?

Using products that are clean from parabens and toxins makes a huge difference for your skin’s health. (https://www.purefayce.com/) provides a range of organic products that you should include in your daily skincare routine.

But having a skincare regime, slathering on sunscreen, and using the best cleanser is not always enough for the largest organ of our body. Our skin needs much more than that. Our skin becomes very delicate and thin due to a lot of factors, such as increased sun exposure. Therefore, it needs consistent care from the inside as well. It tends to lose water and may become dull and dry. So we need to intake vital supplements and vitamins to cater to any skin deficiency.

Especially after menopause, around the age of 50, the women tend to experience prominent changes in their skin due to the loss of estrogen hormone. This happens because women, in the post-menstrual period, lose a significant skin protein, i.e., collagen. It results in destructuring of the skin and a lack of hydration. (1)

If you are struggling to have flawless skin, it’s time to bring the vital supplements to your skincare product collection.

Vitamin A

Due to daily sun exposure, ultraviolet rays can affect your skin, even if you use sunscreen religiously. Thus it affects collagen production, causing wrinkles. Eat yellow, red, and orange-colored foods containing Vitamin A, such as squash, carrots, sweet potatoes, etc.

Vitamin C

Vitamin C is widely known for boosting immunity, but did you know that it is also beneficial for the skin? Vitamin C is vital for forming collagen, and therefore, it is favorable for the overall appearance of your skin.

Vitamin E

Like Vitamin C, Vitamin E is also an antioxidant. Sunlight can do a lot of damage to our skin. Vitamin E can protect our skin from photodamage and keep it spot and wrinkle-free.

Collagen

This protein in your skin helps maintain skin elasticity and keeps your skin moist, giving your skin a firm appearance. However, our skin can lack collagen. Therefore, collagen supplements can be taken to revive the skin’s elasticity. According to research, improvements in skin elasticity and hydration were seen after four weeks of collagen consumption.

Five tips to look like a supermodel

Who doesn’t love makeup? Makeup is a passion for some people, and for some, it is a need. Using natural makeup products contributes to maintaining our skin health as well as the environment. However, the products we use should also subtly enhance our features.

Do you want to look like models you watch on television? Well, now it is not difficult to learn some tricks and rock like a professional makeup artist.

Use minimal products

Rule number 1; do not use makeup as a mask. A vast range of makeup products is available in the market to enhance your face profile. But you should not aim to completely change your outlook. You actually suffocate your skin by applying heavy layers of makeup on it, and it can actually suffocate your skin. Too many layers can even clog your pores and cause breakouts.

The market is full of highly pigmented products that can give you good coverage even with a little application. Learn to be comfortable in your skin, and use minimal products to look flawless.

Not only layering a minimal base is vital, but using organic products to set your base is as necessary. Your foundation is in direct contact with your skin, so use products that are free of chemicals, parabens, and fragrances. For the best organic foundation, visit (www.purefayce.com). Our (Sampure Instant Glow Mineral Loose Foundation) is a highly pigmented lightweight foundation that will not choke your skin. (1)

Brushes quality over quantity

The market is stuffed with a variety of makeup brushes, available for each and every tiny makeup ritual. Sometimes it might be difficult to choose from the available options. But the wise choice is to go for only a few multipurpose makeup brushes to rock your look.

By using our cruelty-free brushes, you can have a trouble-free makeup experience. They feel like heaven on the skin, and they smoothly blend all your products effortlessly. Just wash your brushes once a week to avoid infections on your face.

Get your brow game strong

Do you forget your eyebrows often? Well, taking a few minutes extra to do your brows can actually change your entire facial appearance. Be gentle, and use a brow pencil or brow gel to give them the depth they need. Use our organic (Glamzone – Velvet DuoExpert Eyebrow Pencil Vinyl Black Eyeliner), and reshape your facial expressions.

Balance your shimmers and mattes

There are tons of makeup products, ranging from mattes to shimmers, and you have them all. But do you really know where to put each one of them? A true understanding of applying the right products at the right places can transform the whole makeup game for you. Mattes soak up the light, while shimmers reflect the light. Therefore, mate is ideal for contouring, and the shimmer is absolute for highlighting. You need to know where you want to reflect most of the light – such as the inner corners of your eyes, and your cheekbones. Even putting a little shimmer on top of your lips can intensify your lips. (2)

Get inventive

If you are doing makeup the same way, every time you pick up those creative brushes, you are missing out on so much! Do not be afraid to use vibrant colors on your eyes, because color can change your whole outlook. Create some drama. Try out new eyeliner styles, or even try experimenting with your favorite lipstick as a blush on your cheeks. A simple rotation can change the whole meaning of makeup for you.

So, ladies, you gotta teach your friends and colleagues that you are no less than a supermodel. You don’t need to take makeup classes to learn the art of professional makeup. Just follow some simple tricks, use your creative skills, and look like a supermodel Edition of yourself.

Easy switches to save our planet from plastic waste

We all are aware by now that plastic is vicious to our health. But do you know why? It affects humans, animals, and the planet in ways we can not imagine. Plastic is everywhere. It spreads toxins as they stick to the environment for years.

Why is plastic harmful?

Do you know that plastic delivers harmful chemicals, known as estrogenic chemicals? These chemicals stick to the hormone receptors in our body, disrupting usual hormone functioning, which leads to diseases in humans. Continuous exposure to plastic can even result in fertility issues, both in men and women. Not only this, it can interfere with pregnancy, developmental patterns of the fetus, and it can even increase the risk of cancer.

The use of plastic is not only harmful to humans, but also to the land and sea animals. Plastic waste is dumped into the ocean, and chemicals affect marine life. These chemicals also get deep into the soil, which affects the food and water supply of the land animals. Thus, the animals face reproductive disabilities as well. (1)

What can we do?

Our job is to be responsible for ourselves and our planet. We should be very conscious to avoid purchasing things made of plastic, plastic bags, and products that consist of plastic microbeads. Just gradually try to avoid plastic in your daily life by switching simple things.

Our daily skincare products may contain plastic. Start by purchasing your routine body care products without plastic packaging, so that they are not harmful to our lives and the land and sea animals. Use organic products from (https://www.purefayce.com/) that are clean, and which include healthy ingredients for our environment.

In addition, some exfoliators contain plastic microbeads. Instead of those exfoliators, use a dry brush. Before taking a bath, use a body brush gently, scrubbing it 3 or 4 times. And don’t forget to moisturize afterward for best results.

If you are a coffee lover, you have to stop purchasing your morning coffee in plastic cups. The good news is, you don’t have to let go of your coffee craving. You only have to stop using those plastic cups and begin with reusable coffee cups.

The most common plastic thing that we use in our daily lives is those plastic shopping bags. And it is the easiest thing to switch. Just keep a reusable shopping bag in your car, and whenever you go shopping, take that life-saving bag with you. Even if the bill counter reminds you that you forgot your bag, don’t act lazy. Just take a break, walk back to your car, and bring that reusable bag with you.

These are some of the simple things to switch that can save the lives of a lot of people and animals, as well as the planet. These easy switches will not only enhance your life, but they will save you money as well. By taking this initiative, you can start awareness among your friends and family, and set an example for them as well. So do not give it a second thought, and start today!  (2)(3)

Why you should choose Organic Makeup?

Why you should choose Organic Makeup?

Do you get excited by that sharp wing of your eyeliner or the contour shining through your cheeks? Makeup is a treat for every woman nowadays, but are you really using the right products for your skin? Or are you unknowingly putting your precious skin at risk by using harsh chemicals every day?

Layers and layers of makeup on your delicate skin can cause a breakout, and it can also prolong the breakout. You might notice more wrinkles on your skin, the wrong products can damage your skin, or you might have an allergic reaction that you would definitely want to avoid(1). So what’s the solution to this dilemma? Don’t worry! You don’t have to stop using those makeup brushes. Organic makeup is the answer. In this article, you will find all the answers to what should I use?.

Before buying your makeup products, always have a look at the ingredients. The mineral makeup should not include parabens, talc, fragrances, and Bismuth Oxychloride. Parabens are low-priced preservatives that can be absorbed into the skin and harm the skin. Talc can be carcinogenic. Fragrances may lead to developmental and reproductive issues. Bismuth Oxychloride can cause scars and wrinkles, and it can be irritating for some people. Have you ever heard of the phrase “ Organic mineral products”? This phrase itself is misleading as minerals are not organic(2).

Organic products should include natural ingredients which are not harmful to your skin. By the use of makeup, you mean to enhance your features and make your skin feel good. It should not be the cause of skin damage in the longer run. Many cosmetic products use natural ingredients, but products should be evaluated on their effectiveness(3).

Due to increasing competition and customer awareness, the companies put a lot of thought into formulating the ingredients. It’s easier to find clean and halal products now.
