Pantone Color of the Year 2016

Every year the folks at the Pantone Color Institute come up with the Pantone color of the year. The Pantone Color Institute is a color research and color information center. This year we get a bonus. There are 2 colors of the year!

 Rose Quartz 
Rose Quartz Zoya Dot

and Serenity
serenity and Zoya Jo

Rose Quartz is a soft pink. Zoya Dot is a good match. 
Serenity is a sky blue. Zoya Jo is a close match. 

Think of the sky at sunrise when you see beautiful pinks and blues that gently merge together.
This is a sunrise pic I took a couple years ago. The sky looked magnificent! I am so excited I get to use it as a perfect example of the beautiful colors of Rose Quartz and Serenity!

It is interesting to me that the colors of the year are soft gentle colors for this coming year. Most of the colors in the past have been very bold colors. These soft colors have a peaceful, calming, gentle feeling which we desperately need in our world now. Maybe Rose Quartz and Serenity will inspire a fresh gentle, yet powerful, attitude like the sunrise 
 and the start of a new day.

White Bumps Under Eyes: Milia

Have you noticed that you have little white looking bumps under your eyes? Some people call it chicken skin because the bumps look like plucked chicken skin. 🐔 Most likely those little white bumps are milia. They can feel hard or pearly. These bumps are not acne. Milia can occur when dead skin cells become trapped beneath the outer layer of skin. Keratin becomes trapped and builds up. A small benign cyst can form which is the milia. It's a cyst!?! Don't let that word scare you. They are harmless, but unwanted bumps.  They can occur on any area of the skin that tends to be on the dry side. They cannot be squeezed out like a blackhead or pimple because they have no opening. A layer of skin covers them. A hole must be created in them using a needle, then they can be extracted out.

This post is all about dermatofibromas and some remedies to help make them look better and ways hide them. It includes my Amazon Affiliate Links to help you find the products I talk about. Q. I have this brown bump on my leg that won't go away. What can I do about it? A. It could be a dermatofibroma. I see them often on my leg waxing clients. A dermatofibroma is a tan to brown benign raised bump more common in women than men and occur commonly on the legs. The bump feels hard under the skin and can be itchy, tender and easily irritated. A doctor will tell you not to worry about it because it's benign, but it's kind of ugly! Dermatofibromas are also called Benign Fibrous Histiocytomas. They are the result of some sort of injury to the skin such as an ingrown hair or a bug bite.  Be careful when shaving because a dermatofibroma may bleed and become sore if nicked. Don't think you can get rid of it by shaving it off. It will be an awful looking sore and will j

Why does my lipstick change color on my lips?

So, you found a gorgeous shade of peachy nude lipstick.... right on trend. It looks amazing in the lipstick tube but when you put it on, it turns orange within 15 minutes!  It happens to me all the time. Pigments in the lipstick react with the chemistry of the skin and change color. This color shift is due to the pH of the skin. Our skin has an acidic pH of 4.5 to 5.5. It varies slightly from person to person which is why lipstick changes on some people and not others.  The oil, sweat and bacteria on our skin create a protective layer called the acid mantle with its pH of 4.5 to 5.5. The acid mantle can change due to how we treat our skin.  The skin pH can change due to the environment.  The sun, as well as pollution, can affect skin's pH.  What we eat can affect the pH of our skin.  Sweating and cosmetic products can also change pH.  The skin will always try to get back to 4.5-5.5 no matter how we abuse it.  Use gentle pH balanced skin care products, eat a healthy diet w
