Youngblood Luxury Cosmetics | Prép Beauty Parlour

By | Prép Beauty Parlour | No Comments

Pauline’s Story:
Pauline Youngblood was a paramedical aesthetician to dermatologists and plastic surgeons, since her time as a medical aesthetician she founded Youngblood Cosmetics in 1996 and is president of the company.

“The concept of mineral makeup was great, but the quality was missing,”  “The colors weren’t realistic; they were too pink or orange, and they looked artificial.” Pauline says.

Pauline worked with chemists to create a makeup line that would cover raw, inflamed or discolored skin, while allowing it to breathe and heal. More than 15 years later, Pauline’s Natural Mineral Foundation is the flagship product, and Youngblood Mineral Cosmetics is now a complete line, offering dozens of products in a comprehensive palette of shades with realistic skin tones and beautiful, natural finishes. Youngblood continues to create top-quality products that are innovative in both formulation and packaging.

Why Mineral Makeup?
A mineral is an inorganic solid substance that occurs naturally in rocks and in the ground.When used in cosmetics, these micronized crystals reflect light to help smooth the appearance of fine lines and blemishes. Did you know mineral makeup does not support growth of bacteria or micorobes and provides natural sun protection?

Ingredients:

Although many mineral lines claim to be “jet-milled” or “triple-milled,” not all milling processes achieve superior results and, oftentimes, result in potentially dangerous ultra-fine particles known as nanoparticles. Youngblood does not use nanoparticles in its formulas.

Preparing your lashes for the changing seasons

By | Eyelash Extensions, Lash Care, Prép Beauty Parlour | No Comments

Fall has officially arrived!! humid weather and not enough sun can definitely effect lash extension retention, this can be worrisome for clients! Keep reading to find out why the lashes shed when the seasons change.

loveyourlashes

Protection:
The biological purpose of hair is to protect us from the sun but we sometimes forget we need to keep our hair protected as well, during the fall months hair sheds much faster than normal and in bigger groups. Sun provides vitamin D and vitamin D is essential to hair growth but during the winter moths vitamin D is not always easily found, meaning our bodies are not absorbing as much as usual and hair loss during this time is imminent.

Vitamin D:
Lack of vitamin D will cause slower lash growth as our bodies are working extra hard to grow hair because the vitamin D is being shared in the body to fight off colds and other common illnesses during this time. Don’t forget to consult a doctor before adding any extra supplements into your diet routine.

Prevention:
Lash shedding season only lasts about 3 weeks! Try taking vitamin D vitamins from your local pharmacy and don’t book longer than 2-3 weeks for your lash fills during the season. You can also use Intelliseal to help protect the bonds and strengthen your natural lashes, or if you would like to take a “lash break” during this time try out Eyenvy to help your lashes grow longer than ever!
