There are many different ways to remove stains from cosmetics. Many of the processes used work as well on carpet and furniture as well as clothing. Determine if your makeup stain is oil based or non-oily, and proceed from there. Always follow care label instructions and laundering information. Doing so can save that favorite blouse or sweater when cosmetics stain them.
Rubbing alcohol will remove lipstick stains. Dab the stain with a small amount of isopropyl alcohol, then add a small amount of household detergent, and wash the garment per label care instructions.
Household ammonia is another good resource for removing lipstick. First blot the stain with a bit of water to remove as much of the lipstick as possible, then treat with a little ammonia, and rinse and wash per care label instructions. Do not use ammonia on silk or wool!
Spray a little hairspray on the stain, let stand a few minutes, and then wipe off the hairspray with your white cloth. Rinse, and launder per label care instructions.
If a garment is one of your most favorites, you may wish to have a professional remove the stain. If the garment is a high ticket item, this is probably your best choice.

1) For one kind, soak a pad of cotton or towel in cold or ice water. Squeeze it out so it is wet but not dripping and place it on the injury. Replace or dip more water onto the pad after a few minutes. Continue cooling area for about 30 minutes or so.

Despite being a very common problem, acne can be a very traumatizing experience during teenage years and adulthood. It is a common mistake to believe that only teenagers suffer acne: many adults, and even infants, may have acne. People who suffer acne, especially those going through their teenage years may, as a result, suffer from low self-esteem and lack of self-confidence, and may feel ostracized because of their condition.
Acne appears when the pores of the skin are clogged. When the glands produce too much oil, whose normal amount is usually produced to keep the skin lubricated, it may block the pores and accumulate dirt and bacteria and other debris. This is what causes the plug or, in more technical terms, “comedone”. If such plug or comedone breaks, it releases oil and bacteria and this spreads to the surrounding area, causing inflammation. If the inflammation is deep in the skin, a cyst may be formed, which can be very painful. Acne may take different forms and may be inflammatory or non-inflammatory. Inflammatory acne may consist in papules, postules, nodules, and cysts. Non-inflammatory acne (which is a milder form of acne), may be whiteheads or blackheads.
Some easy ways to deal with mild acne are:
- Avoid touching your face unnecessarily and keep it clean throughout the day, washing it regularly with a moisturizing soap. It is also useful to wash your hand before touching your face. – Do not squeeze or scratch the pimples; this may lead to [...]
Some months ago i noticed my teeth were getting some weird spots and were not bright white anymore. Well some people told me this actually happens with age and sometimes because of the toothpaste we are using.
