To scrub or not to scrub?
Which of these statements are TRUE about exfoliation?
You should exfoliate every day, Exfoliate less when you get lots of sun*, You do not need to exfoliate your face, If you exfoliate it dulls skin
Although reducing exfoliation in the summer is recommended, dermatologists suggest that you should still exfoliate once per week during the warmer months, depending on how active you are outdoors. If you are going to be in the sun for prolonged periods, like going to the beach or playing an outdoor sport, you should probably hold off. When you do exfolioate, use RapidRenew, a gentle exfoliating polish for your face, neck and décolleté. Check it out!
All About the brows!
So we’ve already asked you about lashes in quiz one, but do you know the lifespan of the hairs in your brows?
Forever, 10 days, 1 month, 4 months*
Brow hairs have a lifespan of about four months. Wow 3 brow birthdays a year. That’s amazing since the hairs on your head have a much longer cycle of three to seven years.
Which of these foods should you avoid most for healthier skin?
Does it really do the body good? Milk can be full of growth hormones and growth factors that remain biologically active even after pasteurization and can make their way into our blood stream where they can affect insulin, cause inflammation and ramp up oil production. Organic and nut milks are a good alternative.
Look at those pearly whites!
What ingredient can be used for a whiter smile, as well as clean your mouth and help prevent gum disease?
Hydrogen Peroxide*, Isopropyl alcohol, White Grape Juice, Sour Cream
Many over-the-counter teeth whitening products contain hydrogen peroxide, but it’s just as easy to whiten your smile on a budget with a homemade treatment. A 50/50 rinse of hydrogen peroxide and water can brighten your smile, or better still, combine that with baking soda to form a paste and use this mixture with your toothbrush to get them even brighter. Who knew the “Boo Boo” cleanser could have such a Dazzling Effect!
The beauty of your unique skin color!
Your skin undertone determines your jewelry, clothing, and makeup choices! There are a few easy ways to determine if you have a cool, warm or neutral skin undertone. Which choice below is FALSE?
By your eye color, By your veins, By the jewelry finish that looks better, By your nail bed*
Although your nails can tell you a lot about your nutrition and age etc, they sadly cannot tell you anything about your skin tone. There are 3 skin tones Cool (pink, red or bluish undertones), Warm (yellow, peachy, golden undertones), and Neutral (a mix of warm and cool undertones), and the most effective way to determine which describes you is by looking at your veins and what color they are. You can also simply put on some silver and gold jewelry and if you look more naturally radiant in gold then you are most likely a warm skin tone and vice versa. Who knew?
Brows on fleek!
How many hairs does the average person have per eyebrow?
50, 100, 250*, 600
The average person has about 250 hairs per eyebrow.
They vary in length, thickness, and direction. You may have noticed that the hair closest to our noses point upward while they start to point outward once they reach the arch.
Let’s talk skin.
What is the most outer layer of skin called?
Dermis, Taxidermis, Subcutaneous, Epidermis*
The epidermis is the outermost layer of our skin, and its job is to protect us! The epidermis is waterproof, providing a defense against germs and shields our internal organs, muscles and nerves from damage. Our awesome epidermis also helps regulate our body temperature and produces the melanin that provides our skin color.
Let’s get serious!
How many sunburns can a person have before they double their risk of skin cancer?
1, 5*, 10, 15
The statistic is, sustaining five or more sunburns in youth increases lifetime melanoma risk by 80 percent. On average, a person’s risk for melanoma doubles if he or she has had more than five sunburns. Sunblock, sunblock, sunblock! In this case we definitely DO NOT want to feel the burn!
