LIGHTEN' HAIR WITH CARE Becoming a blonde has its problems, even in this lay of safe and easy-to-use products. However, the biggest pitfall of lightening your own hair is: overlapping while lightening the new hair growth, and this can be eliminated with onre and baby oil. Carefully apply the lightener to only the root area that needs retouching, then, apply baby oil to the rest of the hair si rand to keep the bleaching product from seeping onto the hair that is already lightened. CARE OF OILY SKIN Oily skin needs to be soaped and rinsed Iwice every time you wash your face. Then p.-it it with an astringent to tighien up any large pores. Repeat this treatment two or three times a day.
