Proactiv has been the biggest acne “skin care” product company in the market but are there products really as effective as the stars claim on commercials? Proactiv is a company that thrives of the product sales to people who want to get rid of their acne and have clear skin. I was once one of those people so desperately looking for the clear skin that I once had. The only problem I have with proactiv is that their products contain many harmful ingredients in them that are not only very harsh on skin but they also cause health problems as well.
One ingredient that the proactiv product line contains is benzoyl peroxide. Many people who I share this information with may deny it and get offended like proactiv was their creation so please don’t take it personally, this has just been my opinion and research and what I have found so please just listen to what I have to say and then do your own further research to be smart about it. I started researching acne products and cures quite a few years ago when I had acne because I wanted to get rid of acne safely from home and didn’t want to have any side effects like my brother and mother faced because of accutane.
The reason I started researching how to cure acne is because my brother was born with a birth defect because of a new “acne cure” drug that my mom took when she was a teenager. The drug she took was called accutane and I don’t recommend that anyone take’s it or anything like it or as a matter of fact any pharmaceutical drugs at all. Because of it’s harmful effects that it can have both on you and even your kids. I don’t recommend that anyone take pharmaceutical drugs personally because they are not natural and your body reacts to them which will most likely cause more health problems. Drug companies love this though because their business plan is to get you on one drug, which has side effects that now causes you to get on another drug and this chain of product sales can go on and on. The only way to truly cure a health problem is to find the root cause of the problem and heal that internally with some type of nutritional and healing support.
So I personally do not recommend proactiv or any of their product line simply because they contain benzoyl peroxide. I researched benzoyl peroxide and found that it was linked to cancer in studies with rats, mice, hamsters and even more! I was shocked when I found this because this is in proactiv along with other acne treatments as well. For this reason alone you should stay away from proactiv.
Proactiv also contains other ingredients which are not natural and may interfere with healthy cellular function in the body. One big myth is that because you are putting something on your skin doesn’t mean that it is getting in your blood stream. This is the furthest thing from the truth. When you put something on your skin it get’s in your pores and will get in your blood stream and into the rest of your body. This can cause further health problems now or down the road. A lot of pharmaceutical drugs will cause problems in organs like the liver or colon because they are trying to flush out of your body but they cannot due to the way they were created.

have a great day!

Sweet Gloss is encased in a “Hello Kitty” container that has her signature, and her head all over it. It’s very cute, as is the packaging in this entire collection.
Pink Bow is a sheer light cool pink. It is a bit lighter than the inside of a watermelon, but darker than bubblegum pink. It falls somewhere in between, and the color looks absolutely delectable, especially once you get a whiff of it. With real fruit extracts in it, this gloss is very sweet, as its name suggests.
Pink Bow is sheer, as all the Sweet Glosses are in this collection, and it puts down sheer, shimmering pink color. The formula feels silky smooth like it is half lip balm, half lip gloss. The actual gloss is incredibly moisturizing, and makes my lips feel like butter!
The color payoff is just enough…not over the top, and not completely sheer and invisible either.
Bottom Line: Sweet Gloss gives you a gorgeous sheer glossy look to your lips, and with nine shades to choose from, there is something for everyone. The lipstick container will incite many “WANT” lists from Hello Kitty lovers.

Ever wonder why weight loss diets have been prevalent these days? Have you ever tried searching for reasons why weight down programs and low-calories snacks have gained huge following of the most applauded celebrities in this sphere of existence? Aside from the health risks, social acceptance plays a leading role in this present day scenario. Media has grounded the fact that a celebrity is adorable and to-die-for if he or she struts s beautiful body– which is equivalent to tiny limbs and waistlines. A little flab on the side will surely entice cameras and paparazzis to take some snaps. And the next thing they now, it is in the front cover of a showbiz or lifestyle magazine. This is the social disadvanatage of gaining weight beyond the Hollywood standard.
With this streroetype, various diets, regimes and scientific eating habits and mea planes gained phenomenal Hollywood following. Diet pills, therapeutic exercises and activities have set everyone in complete daze. Among these famed diets is the Master Cleanse Diet. This particular diet was tried out by countless famous actors and music icons like Ashanti. But, why does this celebrated all-natural liquid diet did not work for Ashanti?
Prevalence and sudden increase in popularity of weight loss diets and food supplemets has become inevitable. One of the most talked about habits or program is the Master Cleanse diet which is currently being tried by RNB superstar and music mogul Jay-Z’s better half, Beyonce Knowles. Another famous in the music arena who has tried this regimen is Ashanti.
However, for this young icon, Master Cleanse deemed as a failure. Why?
Master Cleanse is not a weight loss technique. When it was developed and promoted in the 1940’s, Master Cleanse prime purpose is to detoxify the bidy systems from harmful toxins and bacteria that cause diseases like ulcers and some cancers. Weight loss was not even mentioned in its original portfolio. However, because of its flushing principle, some people have made to believe that Master Cleanse is a certified technique that promotes elemination of unwanted fats.
* Like any other diets, once you stop practicing principles of Master Cleanse, expect that your body will readily gain the weight lost within the duration of the program. The link between this diet and losing weight is the relatively and perhaps dangerously low amount of calories. For this reason, Master Cleanse may also be tagged as fad or crash diet.
Lastly, Master Cleanse, because it is a very low-calcium diet may cause rapid and abrupt loss of weight. Not only it is calcium-deficient, but also has very minimal vitamins and minerals content. With these things, various manifestations or even discomforts may be felt: headaches, dizziness and fatigue. Celebrities are always hard pressed each time and has seemingly unlimited work. This kind of lifestyle may not sit well with Master Cleanse.
If you are thinking about having a great health and lose weight, you can try Master Cleanse for a better heath, you can also visit Emma Deangela’s site on Master Cleanse for your body needs.
