Is Beauty of the Nile’s® CC Cream the same as foundation?
Most CC Creams and foundations are quite different Beauty of the Nile’s® CC Cream. Foundations are often heavy so that they can coat your face and achieve full coverage. Beauty of the Nile’s® CC Cream is different because it is a lightweight, yet full-coverage CC Cream with a matte finish. One of our customers said, "It's feels like I'm not wearing anything, but I look flawless."
Does diet effect my acne?
The American Academy of Dermatology Association says that a low glycemic diet may help reduce acne. A low glycemic diet includes fresh fruit and vegetables. A high glycemic diet includes foods that cause your blood sugar to spike (French Fries, sodas, potato chips...). The reason high glycemic foods may cause acne is that they cause blood sugar spikes that result in inflammation throughout your body. The spikes also cause your body to produce more sebum (oil). Both inflammation and excess sebum have been linked to acne. Keeping an eye on what you eat and proper use of Beauty of the Nile’s® Skin Nurturing Anti-Acne™ Treatment System will get you your best skin ever!

At what age should I start using an anti-aging serum?
We recommend using No Needles, No Way!™ Anti-Aging Skin Serum™ - 24K Gold as soon as you notice any signs of aging skin. For most people, we suggest they begin using No Needles, No Way!™ as early as their 20s, when it can help maintain the skin’s youthful appearance and delay the signs of aging skin. Starting early is the key!
Why is moisturizer important?
Moisturizing your skin provides
several benefits. First, moisturizing prevents your skin from getting dry and itchy. It also slows the sign of aging. Well-hydrated skin gives the appearance of being smoother and having less fine lines and wrinkles. Moisturizing also helps guard against acne and blemishes. That sounds counter-intuitive, but here’s why. When your skin gets too dry, it signals your body to produce oil. Excess oil can clog your pores and cause a breakout.This is why we strongly recommend you use Beauty of the Nile’s® World's Best Face Cream™ every day.
Is it true that eyebrows and eyelashes grow slower than the hair on your head or body?
Yes; Eyebrow and eyelash hair grows slower than hair on other parts of your body. This is because eyebrow and eyelash hair has a much shorter growth phase (the "anagen" phase) than hair on other parts of your body. Keep your lashes & brows growing strong with Beauty of the Nile’s® Rejuvenated LASHES & BROWS™ Advanced Growth Serum.
