The Best Way To Apply Sunscreen

The Best Way To Apply Sunscreen

Do you start at your feet and move up? Give it all a quick spray and move on? If you’ve fallen into a routine of using sunscreen each day, you may be surprised to hear that there’s a preferred method for how it should be applied. Are you doing it the right way? Here’s what the experts say. Top-down is the preferred method. Face-first is always the way to go, experts said. “I recommend starting at the face and then working your way down the body to your feet, so that you don’t wind up with bacteria from your body on your face,” said dermatologist Dr. Corey Hartman. Dermatologist Dr. Teresa Song agreed with this approach, and she explained why it’s a good idea. “Generally, skin care products used on the body are more occlusive, which means they can use heavy, greasy ingredients that create a physical barrier for the skin,” she said. “That heavier body skin care should be separated from products intended for face and neck, since they could potentially cause breakouts on …

Here’s how to apply for Biden’s Climate Corps jobs

President Biden walks outside the White House on April 5. Alex Brandon/AP hide caption toggle caption Alex Brandon/AP President Biden walks outside the White House on April 5. Alex Brandon/AP President Biden is marking Earth Day on Monday by launching a website for applications for his Climate Corps jobs and training program, a plan that has attracted a lot of interest from young Americans. Biden has been racing to push forward on initiatives that appeal to a generation that was a big part of his 2020 win — a demographic he has struggled with heading into his reelection bid this fall. The latest NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist poll found that 61% of voters under 30 disapprove of his performance as president. Issues like climate change, gun violence prevention and student loan debt are important for young voters, and in recent weeks, Biden has unveiled a host of initiatives in these areas. Biden launched the climate service program last fall, and within weeks the White House received more than 42,000 expressions of interest from Americans, most of them …

How to apply blush for a natural, pretty flush

At the centre of some of the most viral makeup trends you’ll always find blush in some form. Whether it’s a rosy flush to enhance a cold-girl aesthetic, a bronzed tint for an espresso-inspired look or a dewy finish for a glazed blush moment – in our opinion, it always steals the show.  While it can be a great way to add dimension to your look, so many people shy away from pinky pigments from fear of looking overly-rosy.  To help you master the art of getting a flattering flush, we spoke to none other than Sir John, Beyoncé’s very own makeup artist, to find out his tips and tricks to make it work for you… Sir John, why do you think some people shy away from wearing blush? “People can shy away from blush for a number of reasons.

How to apply setting powder to ‘dry skin’ according to an expert

How to apply setting powder to ‘dry skin’ according to an expert

Your skin type should determine the beauty products you use. From skincare to makeup, choosing the right formulas can make or break the look, feel and health of your skin. Those with oily skin should stick to oil-free foundations, lightweight moisturisers and mattifying primers to avoid congestion or pimples, but when it comes to dry or dehydrated skin, the more moisture and hydration, the better. Ceramide-rich moisturisers and glycerin-based serums and foundations will be your best friend. But, what about setting powders? You might be reading this thinking dry skin and powder? Never the twain shall meet. But times have changed and formulas are more sophisticated. Setting powders are now infused with hydrating skincare ingredients so you’re able to set your base and make it last without turning your skin dusty. According to celebrity makeup artist Valeria Ferreira, whose clients include Anya Taylor-Joy, Cara Delevingne and Lily James, “Powders are very helpful… Soft-focus finishing powders applied with a small blending brush help to create a semi-matte finish and give your base longevity.” © GettyAnya Taylor-Joy …

How to apply to be a NASA astronaut

How to apply to be a NASA astronaut

NASA is wasting no time after yesterday’s 23rd astronaut class graduation ceremony. After congratulating the 10 newest people now eligible for flight assignments, the agency has opened the application portal for its next pool of potentially spacebound voyagers. And to celebrate the occasion, NASA enlisted the legend Morgan Freeman to narrate its announcement video. A total of 360 candidates have now taken part in the demanding, two-year training school since 1959, but only three did not finish the program. Currently, just 48 Astronaut Office members are currently active. NASA picked its latest 10 graduates from over 12,000 applicants, who are now also qualified for future assignments aboard the International Space Station, Artemis program missions, and even future commercial space station projects. As Space.com notes, however, their current newbie status will more likely place them in technical roles supporting flights, such as serving as Mission Control capsule communicators (capcoms), as well as overseeing rocket and spacecraft preparations. Before long, however, they could find themselves in line to board those very same vehicles for missions to the …

Does the First Amendment apply to social media moderation? The U.S. Supreme Court will decide

Does the First Amendment apply to social media moderation? The U.S. Supreme Court will decide

Sign up for The Brief, The Texas Tribune’s daily newsletter that keeps readers up to speed on the most essential Texas news. The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday will consider whether the First Amendment’s freedom of speech clause applies to social media companies’ content moderation. Their decision could render a Texas law unconstitutional. The lawsuit challenges whether Texas and Florida can legally prohibit large social media companies from banning certain political posts or users. Both states passed laws in 2021 to stop what Republican state leaders considered “censorship” of conservative viewpoints. The laws came on the heels of the Jan. 6, 2021 attack on the U.S. Capitol, which led Facebook, Twitter and other social media platforms to suspend former president Donald Trump’s social media accounts because his posts were thought to glorify violence. Tech industry groups then brought a lawsuit in which they argued those laws are unconstitutional because they conflict with the First Amendment, which protects against government infringement of speech. Tech trade groups NetChoice and Computer & Communications Industry Association sued Texas and …

Parents in England who have lost baby before 24 weeks can apply for certificate | Miscarriage

People who have lost a baby to miscarriage before 24 weeks of pregnancy will be able from Thursday to receive a certificate from the government recognising their grief. Baby loss charities welcomed the move, which they hope will help bereaved parents manage the pain and trauma of their loss. Parents in England who have lost a baby in such circumstances at any time since September 2018 will be able to request a new baby loss certificate through the gov.uk website from 9am on Thursday. Millions of people could potentially apply for a certificate, experts said. The certificate will be an official but not legal document. Victoria Atkins, the health and social care secretary, said: “Losing a baby can be a hugely traumatic event and the introduction of certificates to formally acknowledge the loss of a life is a positive step towards better supporting women and parents affected.” The move means that the government will have finally delivered on its pledge to bring in the certificates, which it first made in July 2022 as part of …
