MOD! MOD! MOD! I have a lot of blackheads and popping them doesn't work and it makes my pores look bigger. Is there anything I can do to make them go away and prevent new ones? I've tried various cleansers, scrubs, masks, and strips but nothing seems to work!

Hey girl,

You're right to not pop them--that will lead to scars! Try using an exfoliating face wash with salicylic acid and following up with moisturizer. If that doesn't help, ask your mom about visiting a dermatologist for pro skin advice!

Will it hurt my dry skin? Or irritate it?

 

Hey girl!

It's possible that it could irritate your skin if it's really, really dry. But the recipe has cucumber in it which is very soothing for the skin so you should be OK!

Do you have any other summer mask recipes that are quick and easy?

 

Hey girl!

Avocado face masks and oatmeal face masks are popular. There are tons of recipes online that are super quick and easy.

Does it work well?

How can you make cucumber juice? My guess would be to put a couple cucumbers in a blender or Magic Bullet and blend it up with some water or something but that's probably wrong...

This looks really cool! I love how it uses fresh ingredients! Does it require cumcumber juice? I have everything I need, but that

MOD! MOD! MOD!
Two questions-what is the age limit for proactiv?
I need a really fast way to get rid of the little pimples scattered on my face. Is there any way to get rid or improve them?
Thanks!




Hey Chica!

Ask your parent or guardian if your thinking about ordering Proactiv. But GL has plenty skincare solutions, too! The best tip is to wash your face everyday (twice a day, if you remember) to keep dirt from settling in your pores. 

Here are some other basic tips to get rid of pimples and blackheads: http://www.girlslife.com/post/2010/02/01/skin-pimples-blackheads.aspx

MOD! MOD! MOD! Should I wear this mask before or after my daily shower? Also, where can I find cucumber juice?




I'd wear it after! While you're in the shower, wash your face and use a gentle scrub to exfoliate. The warm steam will open up your pores, which is perfect for the mask!  As for the cucumber juice, you should be able to get it at any supermarket. Just go in and ask them! Or check near the veggies/veggie juices. You can also buy a cucumber and "juice" it, aka run it through a food processor or juicer machine Smile

MOD! MOD! MOD! I really like this face mask but I don't have any fresh blueberries. Would the mask work without them? If not would frozen blueberries suffice?




The blueberries are important to the "recipe"... but frozen ones should work! Try taking them out of the freezer for about 6 hours though to thaw them. Then go for it! Smile

Hey nikichic, yeah I think bronzer will go fine over liquid foundation. Just be sure to not apply too much. Xoxo



MOD
OKay so I'm just starting to wear makeup. I usually wear mascara and eyeshadow, and i'm wondering if bronzer would go well over liquid foundation. my skin looks pretty bad in winter, so yeah. Laughing thanks! Lynae P.

MOD MOD MOD i need to know the appropriate way to break up with a guy (keep in mind that i'm 12)

 

Hey girly,

 

You just need to take him aside and calmly tell him that you want to break up. Just be nice and stay calm and it all should be fine.
