    "I'm not one for selfies, but my little sister is, so she asked me to find he a simple app to help with her selfies, and I found Facetune. This is a nice little app that has a number of filters to correct most issues like poor lighting, bad reflections, etc. It's not Photoshop, for an app to fix small selfie issues, this is a good app."

DID YOU KNOW?

The concept of Skincare originated way back in Ancient Egypt followed by the Chinese, Greeks, and Romans. Roots of skincare are traced from to 3000 BC when Egyptians utilized nature for beauty products. They created skin care products from olive oil, ostrich eggs, dough, milk and essential oils from herbs and plants. Egyptian queens particularly Queen Cleopatra wanted to stay beautiful and youthful for as long as possible so they really invested in skin care. In China, skin care began in 1760 BC during the Shang Dynasty. At that time they valued the natural pale look so they used skin lighteners and powders to achieve that complexion. An Empress under the Qin Dynasty developed and recorded her skin care regimen in a book. She used natural cleansers made out of seaweed and jellyfish as well as facial massages in the cheeks and forehead to improve blood flow.

Greeks adopted and added their twist to Egyptian skin care. They used distilled oils from herbs and honey as their moisturizers. They also associated having tanned skin with the lower classes so women often used chalk to whiten their complexion. Romans associated skin care with hygiene and cleanliness which led to the development of the bathing culture. They use olive oil and a curved metal tool to scrape the oil off and remove dirt in their skin. As for the skin care we know today, it started in the early stage 1900’s, pioneers like Maybelline, L’Oreal, Elizabeth Arden, and Max Factor opened their skincare and makeup line for women.

    "I think there are better apps out there specifically for skin smoothing. Although this app can do a lot of photo editing, including removing blemishes, I think think it is more complicated than necessary if you are just looking for some skin smoothing in your photos."
