(Image: Courtney Rashon) Beauty is said to be in the eye of the beholder, however, it is also oftentimes determined and defined by cultural trends. In spite of this contradictory conception of beauty itself, the profitability of this lucrative industry is a fact not up for debate.

The industry even proved to be recession-proof, as Americans continued to spend on cosmetics, skin care, and other beauty products and services during the 2008 Recession. So, it’s no wonder why more women of color are capitalizing off of this booming business, creating their own hair care lines, products, and opening up salons and spas.

In 2013, U.K.-based makeup artist and influencer Joseph Harwood entered “The You Generation,” an online talent contest jointly hosted by Simon Cowell and YouTube. When Harwood, who identifies both as transgender and non-binary, went on to win the competition, the response from its organizers was disheartening. Harwood was informed that he’d won the contest and its $75,000 grand prize, but little publicity followed aside from a few tweets.

He suspects that “they wanted ‘the girl next door’ to be the face of whatever marketing plan they had in the background.” (After repeated requests for comment YouTube referred Fast Company to Cowell, who was unavailable as of press time.) Five years later, even casual … [Read more...] about Can the beauty industry make over the gender norms it created?

Karamihan sa kaniyang mga suhestiyon ay may sangkap na makikita lamang sa kusina kaya hindi mahihirapan ang sino mang nais subukan ito. Pigmentation Ngayong summer, hindi maiwasan na ang mga nanay ay mabilad sa tirik na tirik na araw kapag nagtatrabaho, na nagiging sanhi ng mga pigmentation o pag-iiba ng kulay ng balat. "Kung meron kang pigmentation sa mukha, makakatulong kung mag-sunblock ka. Kung wala, doblehin na lang natin ang moisturizer sa mga lugar na maitim sa mukha," ani Go. Makatutulong din daw na maglagay ng sunblock kahit ikaw ay nasa loob lamang ng bahay o kapag nagluluto, dahil proteksyon aniya ito. Kung nais mawala ang spots sa mukha, maaari raw gumawa ng homemade scrub gamit ang egg white o honey bilang base. … [Read more...] about ALAMIN: Beauty tips para sa busy mommies
