Fun Facts

Did you know?

Corsets were initially designed in the 16th century. This incredibly restrictive and unbearably painful piece of clothing was the cause of many injuries for women. Intended to cinch the waist and accentuate a woman’s silhouette, the corset needed an extra, or two, pairs of hands to be put on. Sometimes, the waists were cinched to as little as 13 inches, which led to restricted breathing, broken ribs, and even damage to internal organs. It was common for women wearing corsets to faint during that time, as their lungs were being compressed for hours at a time.

Get better results from your akin care products by using them the right way

Cleanser

Whether you choose a gel or a cream cleanser, a dime-sized amount is all you need. For foaming cleanser, one pump should get the job done. Wash your face once in the morning and twice in the evening if you wear makeup, or only once at night if you don't wear makeup.

If you use too much: Overusing anti-acne cleansers can leave your skin dry and irritated. Using more than a dime-sized amount of any cleanser will cause you to go through product a lot faster, with no extra benefits.

If you use too little: Not using enough cleanser leaves dirt, debris, and makeup on the skin, which can cause clogged pores and lead to breakouts.
