Are Your Eyelashes Thinning As You Get Older?
Latisse® more than doubles lash fullness in 16 weeks.
What is Latisse® Solution?
Latisse® Solution, to promote eyelash growth, is an FDA approved liquid solution prescription made of 0.03% bimatoprost ophthalmic solution. Latisse® is actually a version of a glaucoma drug in eye drop form called bimatoprost (brand name Lumigan, manufacturer Allergan, Inc.), in use since FDA approval in 2001. During that period, eye doctors and their glaucoma patients noticed the hair growth side effect, with longer, lusher eyelashes appearing over time. The purpose of this solution is to enhance the appearance of your eyelashes. It will darken, thicken, and lengthen your eyelashes! This is the only product that effectively achieves this beautiful and desirable result. Since Latisse® Solution is a prescription only product; you must be seen by a license healthcare provider prior to it’s use.
Does Latisse® really work? YES! Latisse® lengthens, thickens and darkens eyelashes via a process that isn’t fully understood. Like the hair on your head, eyelashes sprout, grow for a while and eventually fall out. Latisse® both extends the growth phase and increases the number of hairs that sprout. After two months of nightly use, you will begin to see results. After three or four months, it may be recommended to schedule treatment every two days. If you stop using Latisse®, your eyelashes will gradually return to their former state.
Study participants experienced these results after 16 weeks:
* Eyelash length increased by 25 percent.
* Thickness and fullness increased by 106 percent.
* Eyelash darkness increased by 18 percent.

Sugar Me Sweet
Sugar can get you into trouble as a sweet treat however in skin care it is actually a quite helpful ingredient. As a natural humectant, sugar draws in moisture keeping the skin hydrated and supple. Sugar lends itself as an excellent exfoliant on the body however, when selecting a sugar for a facial scrub select less course granules such as brown sugar to prevent micro tearing of the skin.
