Unconventional Beauty Tips

Sometimes you’re not at home to fix some of life’s little inconveniences.  So here are a few quick tips:


  • You’re out on the town and you’ve broken a nail.  No nail file? Use either a brick off a building to file or even better a matchbook! This should help tie you over until you’re home and can properly file.
  • On a trip and you break out? Try eye drops on your blemish to diminish redness.   Also, toothpaste can be used to spot treat and help dry out that pimple so that it’s cleared up by morning.
  • A little nippy out? Turn your high beams off with Bandaid ActivFlex! They hide amazingly well under clothes.  I find this one hilarious!

Got Acne? Try Kairos

With the amount of innovative products on the market, it seems that it was only a matter of time before the first hair care line would be developed to help treat acne.

Knowing that standard hair products could have a major impact on their patients skin, nurses, Catherine Parker and Doreen Campbell, developed Kairos — a full line of hair products formulated to help counteract these effects.

Some standard hair products contain acne-aggravating oils. This leads to the overproduction of oils which causes inflammation of new acne or exasperate existing breakouts. Kairos uses natural “safe” oils that don’t clog pores. In addition, several of their products are formulated with acne-fighting Salicylic Acid, a proven medication to help fight existing blemishes and prevent the recurrence of acne.

Here is Kairos’ three-fold approach to acne:

  • Eliminating acne-aggravating and pore-clogging ingredients
  • Treating breakouts by unclogging
