1  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / Re: i want to be pale! please offer recipes... on: April 23, 2005 11:53:24 PM
Have you tried exfoliating your skin? Whenever I get a "tan" I always use a sugar scrub that I make on it, and not only dose it make my skin soft it seems to make the tan fade quicker. I use this every time I take a shower and have only seen good side effects.

As for foundation I find that custom blend by perscriptives is the only way I can get a foundation that matches my skin and looks natural. I know it costs alot but I never leave the house without foundation on (i have vitaliago) so I would rather it look right.

I think I is funny when I hear of people trying to be paler. It takes me back to the old days when I would try to get a tan every weekend, and all I ended up doing was making myself look like one of those white and brown spotted cows Cheesy lol. I wont even go into the fake tanners  Grin

The recipe for the sugar scrub is about 2 cups sugar and about 1/4 olive oil. I don't actually measure, just add the 2 together until it forms a moist but not wet mixture.
Rub this on your skin after you use soap, and make sure that your skin is damp not drippy. Rinse off.
I then usually use soap again on the spots where I tend to break out like my face.
Then just get out of the shower and towel off, no need to use soap, and no need to use any lotion.

It may sound gross but give it a try. It gives me the softest skin I have ever had, I've never had an allergic reaction to it, and had no weird smells ect.

Hope this helps

2  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / Re: dying my hair so it's pretty on: April 23, 2005 11:32:36 PM
If you are able to buy the hair dye separate from the developer, aka not in the box, from a store like Sally's Beauty Supply you can use a higher volume developer such as a 30. The stuff that comes in the box is usually 10 for semi's and 20 for permanant hair dyes. With a higher volume developer the hair dye will "bleach" your hair as it colors it so you can use a color that is 2-3 shades lighter than you natural hair color. This is the same process as normal permanent hair dye just stronger. It will not work on hair dyed dark.

I would not use Manic Panic in your hair because of my experiences with it. I have been using Special Effects brand on my hair for 6 years ( I have blue hair), and on the one occasion I used manic panic it all washed out of my hair the first time I shampooed it. Both brands are about the same price with the Special Effects being cheaper last time I looked.

If you have any questions please ask me. I have been doing hair for 3 years, and went to a professional school.
