You're Handling Pimples All Wrong



What the zits?! You went to bed with clear skin and woke up with a pimple? How did this happen? WHY did it happen to you?! Alright, we will relax a little, pimples aren’t that bad. Even though they always seem to come at the worst possible moment, like a flat tire, or a stomach virus.

We know that pimples suck, but they are actually very easy to get rid of, as long as you get rid of them by using the proper methods. Avoid making pimples worse, because the wrong techniques cold lead to scarring, inflamed skin, and more pimples!

What NOT to do

Once you discover a pimple invading your skin your body will have the natural impulse to touch and squeeze it. We’ve all done it, so what’s the big deal? The big deal is that this could cause problems!

By popping, poking, or picking at a zit and having the pus ooze out or explode on your bathroom mirror leads to the spreading of pus and bacteria to other pores, causing more zits. Also, the pus and bacteria could go inwards, under your skin leading to redness and swelling.

If you apply too much pressure to your pimples they will swell up and cause dark spots, bleed, or even cause scars. Some of the scar could last for weeks, or become permanent.

Plus, if your hands aren’t clean while you’re touching your face to wrestle acne away, then new bacteria can be introduced to your skin, leading to infections that will take your body a long time to heal.

First, What Exactly is a Pimple?

Pimples or zits are areas of inflamed skin as the result of when oil or ‘sebaceous’ glands become blocked or infected inside of your pores. The blocked and bacteria cause redness, swelling, and often fill with pus. The pus is a mixture of bacteria, dead skin cells, and sebum, which is oil from the sebaceous glands. So, now that you’re officially grossed out, it’s time to learn about how to properly handle your pimples.

The Right Ways to Take Pimples out

Suddenly, a pimple has emerged on your perfect skin, but it’s no problem, because you can make a quick trip to your dermatologist's office to get rid of it. This would be great if it was realistic...

Unfortunately, most of us don’t have time before work or an important meeting to rush to the doctor, so it’s time to put on a white labcoat to become your own dermatologist at home!

Before managing a pimple always remember, don’t squeeze, and thoroughly wash your hands with soap and warm water. Be sure to even scrub under your fingernails. Next, take a needle and sterilize it with alcohol and pierce the white head horizontally until the end of the needle comes out the other side.

This shouldn’t hurt because you aren’t piercing the skin, just the whitehead. Be extremely careful not to poke your skin, and definitely don’t poke the needle directly into your pimple, because you definitely want to avoid injuring yourself or bleeding.

Anyways, once your needle is correctly inserted pull it outwards away from your face. The whitehead will burst and you can use a warm wash cloth, or a cotton ball that has been dipped in rubbing alcohol to remove the pus. Then you can wash your face and go about your day pimple free.

However, we are aware that needles make some people squirmish. If you’re not ready to have a needle near your face then you can gently wipe whiteheads away with a qtip that’s been dipped in alcohol.

There are also acne removing tools like extractors lancets, but the key to using them properly is to not use a lot of pressure with them. Don’t mash a pimple down in order to force it to pop. If it isn’t ready to go, give it a day or two and try again. Also, bacteria can quickly build up on these tools so sterilize them before and after every use.

When the whitehead is gone, but your face still has a red, swollen lesion the apply some ice to the area for for about a minute. If the area is still red wait five minutes to apply ice for another minute. Be sure to remember that keeping ice on your skin for too long will cause your face to turn red!

Just Cover it up!

Cover what up? Exactly. A pimple will actually go away on its own after about 3 to 7 days, so if you can manage leaving it alone simply hide it away with a little makeup. Foundation and concealer will smooth right over bumps.

You can use your finger to pat the perfect amount of foundation the make your pimple invisible. If you’re worried about leaving fingerprints behind, then use a makeup brush to smooth over the area.

UnitWise is specifically designed for directors, NSD’s, and independent beauty consultants, and it has tons of innovative tools for managing your inventory, manage customers, online invoices and payments, and social media management—plus more.

However, one of the most important tools to boost your business is the email marketing tool.

Email Marketing With UnitWise

Email marketing is a major way to introduce your products to multiple prospective clients all at once. With UnitWise, you can send out bulk emails to a group of specific individuals, or to your entire mailing list. Plus, you can upload your entire contact to list to UnitWise, so you won’t have to enter everyone’s email address one by one.

Instead of feeling like impersonal bulk messages, your emails appear as personalized, individual messages. You can even set up your email to greet your customers with their first name! It will seem as if the email was sent just to them, to offer them a special deal, when in reality the email was sent to hundreds, or maybe even thousands, of people.

The email feature allows you to instantly send out messages and schedule emails in advance, so you can plan ahead by scheduling emails to go out on people’s birthdays or for holiday sales.

Prospective clients can simply click unsubscribe to the emails at anytime if they wish to no longer receive your updates or promotions.


100% Customizable

UnitWise has pre-made email templates that you can add text, images, and links to, but the templates are also 100% customizable. That’s right, you can give your emails a touch of your personal flair with pink or sparkly borders.

Each email will easily have a professional look with a touch of your custom colors. If you would like to add multiple photos to your email with a neat, uniform look simply add a table with aligned rows for you to drop your photos in. You can adjust the table to have a certain amount of columns and rows based off of your needs. Each row can hold text, photos, or links, so let your imagination run wild while quickly creating a professional email.

Look at the Reports!

Although some people do it, it’s often not the best technique to fire off emails blindly into the depths of the internet. Which is why UnitWise keeps track of everything about your email campaigns, so you can learn what works or what doesn’t work with your demographic.

Your Guide to Time-Saving Makeup and Beauty Hacks



Let’s face it, waking up is hard. We want every bit of sleep possible, and hit the snooze button too many times, without guilt or shame until we realize what time it is and jump out of bed to rush to work.

What do you do when you don’t have enough time to shower and put on your make up?! Do you cut out parts of your morning routine, dangerously apply your makeup in the car, or simply accept your fate and go into work late?

Lucky for you, we have timesaving makeup and beauty techniques so you’ll look flawless, even when you have to sprint to the office.

Prep The Night Before

By taking 5 to 10 minutes before bed you can get a lot of morning prep work done. For example, go ahead and pick your outfit out the night before. This way in the morning you’ll skip the whole, time consuming ‘what do I wear?’ routine. Some people even pick a backup outfit, in case the first one doesn’t work out.

Organize your makeup cabinet or vanity, and keep your essential items out and ready to use. This way instead of looking all over the place in a panic for your favorite lipstick or mascara, you’ll save time by knowing exactly where they are.

Give yourself an extra 10 to 15 minutes to sleep in every morning by showering at night. Not only will you wake up clean and fresh, but you’ll have dry hair, so you won’t have to take the time to blowdry it. You can even straighten or style it before bed to save more time.

To wake up with lively, firm skin, wear an overnight moisturizing mask. This way you can skip the exfoliating scrub in the morning.

How to fix Your Hair in a Jiffy

If you wake up and can’t shower, don’t panic. They’ve made dry shampoos for this exact reason! Simply spray it on, massage it into your roots, and take off on your commute. If you don’t have dry shampoo use baby powder to absorb grease or blow dry your roots.

When you can’t live without a shower, but don’t have time to style your hair, simply let it air dry. Wavy, all natural looks are in right now anyways! By throwing your wet hair in a ponytail or stylish messy bun, you’ll be done managing your hair for the day. Once your hair is dry you can take out your ponytail to reveal wavy, natural looking curls.

Wait to blowdry your hair last, As you do other parts of your morning routine your hair will naturally dry, so you’ll spend less time with your hairdryer later. Also, you can invest in a hair drying serum or spray that helps your hair dry faster and fights frizz to help you save time while drying and styling your hair.

Time-saving Makeup Tips

Put on moisturizer right after your shower to give it time to dry before putting on your foundation. If you don’t have time to let it dry set your hair dryer to cool and give your face a quick burst of cool air.

Then start with your eyes first, this way if you accidentally smear mascara or eyeliner you’ll only need to wipe it away instead of having to touch up your foundation and concealer. Also, to cut down on the number of time consuming products you use fill in your eyebrows with eyeliner or mascara.

Plus, you can keep your eye makeup simple and still look amazing. Try choosing between either mascara or eyeliner instead of using both. If you choose to use eyeliner use a stick or pencil. Avoid liquid eyeliner, as it can be time consuming and tricky to put on, unless you have a stencil.

If you wake up with bags under your eyes and don’t have time to get rid of them, invest in an eye roller. Most eye rollers have serums full of mint and have a refreshing, cooling effect on the skin that reduces puffiness and discoloration.

Next, instead of using a moisturizer and foundation you can combine the steps by using a tinted moisturizer that matches your skin tone. To skip foundation and concealer all together use an exfoliating facial scrub in the morning to perk or your skin and splash cold water on your face to reduce swelling and puffiness.

We know that make up brushes are essential for an even look, but you also have to take care of them, and clean them. Cut your makeup time in half by using your fingers. You can smear and pat foundation and concealer to quickly give your skin a colorful, even look.

Blush is actually your 3 in 1 secret weapon, because it can be used to color your cheeks, as eye shadow, and to color your lips. Also, lipstick often makes a beautiful blush.

When it comes to your lips a big fuss doesn’t need to be made. You don’t need to use lip liner and lipstick to blend together and then cover with a clear glossy coat. Instead, go natural with a little lip gloss. To spice things up with a dash of color use a bright shade of lipstick to draw attention to your lips, away from other makeupless features.

Look Your Best, Even in a Rush

Follow our beauty and makeup tips to look amazing, even when you overslept and don’t have time for a full morning routine. Rushing out the door will no longer be a problem! If we missed any time saving beauty tips be sure to share them in the comment section below.

The Hottest Makeup Trends for Fall 2016



You’re a director, you can’t fall behind the current makeup trends! In order to get the most sales you need to stay ahead of the curve and introduce prospective clients to the new and upcoming styles.

Also, by being in the know about which products are hot right now, you’ll know which products to add to your inventory and which products to start phasing out. Once you have the new hottest items for fall 2016, you can start hosting makeup parties to give guests hot and trendy makeovers. So, what’s in this fall?

Lip Trends

First, we need to discuss one of the most popular makeup items, lipstick. For fall 2016 lipstick pigments are getting darker, with dark shades of browns, reds, burgundies, purples, and even black.

Now, you may be thinking that purples and blacks are too dark and that stuff should be saved for Halloween, but the matte finishes actually provide an extremely chic look.

The bold, trend setters are blowing past the typical muted shades of beige and brick by wearing brown Earthy, coffee lipstick tones, like dark browns with hints of pink. The tones range from dark shades of pink to darker shades of java, with glossy shines, shimmer, and matte finishes.

To brighten up dreary, rainy fall days, fashion forward people are wearing bright shades of pastels and reds. Light pinks and bright reds have been all the rage for a while, but now it's in to wear shades of light blues, greens, and purples too.

Fall 2016 is giving you the opportunity to celebrate your natural color beauty by only wearing a coat of clear lipgloss. Your lips will be hydrated and protected while you rock the lip color that your momma gave ya!

Your Eyes

Remember that whole 90’s grunge phase? Well, even if you don’t, you’ll have a chance to relive it, because the punk look is becoming popular again with lot’s of dark eyeliner and eye shadows.

Goth eyes are taking off of runways at full steam, with even the most reputable fashionistas covering their entire eyelids with dark, grungy looking eye shadow.

Usually you hear about mascara brands that preventing clumping, but this fall is changing things. Now, twiggy, clumping eye lashes that stick together are extremely popular.

Eyeliner is being worn in new ways every day, creating trends that are catching on fast. People are wearing it with double wings, they’re tracing their eye lids and creating sharp angles that shoot upwards from the corners of their eyes. Also, they’re tracing the creases in their eyelids and drawing lines under their eye brows.

Eyes are also becoming bright and glittery with florescent shades of mascara, eyeliners, and eye shadows ranging from bright blues and to pinks to yellows, greens and purples. Blue eye lashes are taking the world by storm, and more and more rainbow eyes with multiple colors are hitting the scene with a feminine boldness that can’t be matched.

Glitter is all the rage right now, especially when it’s under your eyelids or even in your eye brows. These techniques have led to the creation of the modern smokey eye, which involves blending golden shades of yellow with greys, and lots of glitter and shimmer.

Boost Fall Sales With UnitWise

Now that you know the upcoming trends, styles, and colors you can add new colorful products to your inventory to boost fall sales. UnitWise, the total online online business management program will keep track of your inventory for you. It will delete items when receipts and transactions are made, and will notify you when your trendy fall products become low in quantity, so you’ll know when to order more.

Secrets to the Perfect Gameface Makeup



Football season has officially started, meaning it’s time to pull out your lucky red dress, gameday skirt, or fashionable top, because when you support your team you’ll look your best while doing so.

Dressing casual for games is a thing of the past. It’s now fashion forward to look hot and trendy at tailgates, in stadiums, in bars after the game, or even if you’re just at a friend’s house, huddled around their giant TV.

You have the perfect outfit, but what about the perfect makeup? Be prepared and support your team with the following makeup tips:

Prepare for the Elements

If you’re going to be at a tailgate or in the stadium, then remember that you’ll be outside for hours. Check the weather ahead of time to see what the gameday conditions will be like. If it calls for rain, prep your skin with waterproof makeup, like waterproof mascara and concealer.

In case it’s going to be a hot day, be sure to use a waterproof foundation so sweat doesn’t melt it away. Also, set your concealer with powder for a long lasting look. Remember, you can always use a finishing spray to keep your look all day long, no matter what the weather is like.

Also, you can wear a hat to keep the sun off your face, to prevent your skin from reddening or sweating.

When choosing a moisturizer, consider grabbing one with an SPF of 35 or higher to protect your face from getting a sunburn. A tinted sunscreen will also give you a flawless look while protecting your skin.

Glam It Up

Sporting events are a time to celebrate and cut loose. Instead of putting on the makeup you use for your daily routine—spice things up! Get eye shadow for the color of your team and layer it on. For example, if your favorite team is the Carolina panthers start off with black eye shadow that fades into blue.

To make the colors really pop around your eyes use a white eyeliner. White eyeliner will make your eyes look bigger as well as draw attention to your team-colored eye shadow.

Don’t forget about the glitter! Not only is glitter in as a fashion trend right now, but it will also make you look like a superstar. Under the stadium lights your glittery eyeshadow and blush will shimmer and sparkle giving you a fierce eye-catching look.

Remember that football season comes with fall, y’all, and with fall darker lipsticks come into style. Try out shades of dark red to find the perfect color to accent your gameday look.

How to Be Discrete

Only clear bags are allowed in most stadiums, so how do you hide the fact that you’re bringing makeup to the big game?

To hide your foundation, use a tinted sunscreen. To the common eye it will look like you have a regular old tube of sunscreen, but in reality you can use it to protect your skin and touch up your foundation.

Not every bag has to be clear. Clutches or tiny bags that are 4.5” by 6.5” can be brought in. That’s a small bag, but it can fit necessary items like lipstick or eyeliner. Pick your most important products and make sure they fit in the bag.

Still need a little extra room for one more item? Carry your make up in your pockets. Jeans or dresses with pockets have more than enough space for a compact tube of lipgloss or compact powder.

Consultants, use Football to Push Sales

Football season can be the best time of the year to push new products. Not only can you push new fall colors, but you can also push team colors and provide game day makeovers. Don’t forget to introduce new clients to compact make up that they can easily tuck away to bring inside the stadium.

Be on Top of Your Game With UnitWise

Look your best for game day and always get more sales. Use UnitWise, the total online business management program designed specifically for directors, NSDs, and independent beauty consultants. It’s full of innovative features for inventory management, sales tracking, email marketing, online payments and more.

Get started today with a complimentary, free 15-day trial to test out the features and see how they can improve your business.

Manage All Your Social Media Accounts with this One App




UnitWise knows that for Directors and NSDs social media is must have. While the best method to increase sales used to be through face to face interaction, today the game has changed. More and more sales are becoming digitalized.

That’s why with the creation of MyUnitBuzz, the total communication app, designed for Directors and NSDs, we were sure to include a social media management tool! With MyUnitBuzz you can easily and effectively manage all of your social media accounts from one convenient location.

Why Social Media is Important For Beauty Consultants

Social media can be used as a way to market your business in order to get new clients. Just by posting updates you’ll get yourself and your unit out there to gain new and returning customers.

Plus, you can use social media to mention details about upcoming events and parties and also invite more people to attend.

You can also use social media to promote your special offers. It’s a great way to give your coupons and deals tons of attention. Plus, with the upcoming holiday season, it’s one of the best times of the year to create new deals to increase sales.

Multiple Social Media Accounts can be Difficult to Manage

It can be an extremely time consuming process to update all of your social media accounts with their individual apps. Once you post something on Facebook you’ll have to exit the app to post it on Instagram, then you’ll have to leave that app to post your update on twitter.

Switching between apps can be a long process, especially if you have to enter your username and password every time.

Keep in mind that each app has different size requirements for photos and images, and different hashtags that are trending. It’s important to be sure that each post and update is optimized for their specific social media platform, and luckily MyUnitBuzz makes that extremely simple!

How MyUnitBuzz Helps

MyUnitBuzz keeps all of your social media accounts in one place, so you won't have to switch in and out of apps to send out an update. Plus, MyUnitBuzz keeps you signed in to your social media accounts, making constantly entering in your username and password a thing of the past.

As a mobile app, MyUnitBuzz will always be with you as long as you have your smartphone, so you can live tweet an event or share a photo at anytime. Wherever you go, your social media sites will be right there with you.

You and your unit members can use the image library feature to upload and store all of your images from events and parties to post later. By keeping all of your business related images in one place you can quickly browse through them to find the perfect image for a new post. This saves time by keeping work photos separated from personal photos to make them easy to find.

Get Started With MyUnitBuzz

The social media feature is only one of the intuitive tools MyUnitBuzz offers to simplify managing your unit. Use MyUnitBuzz to build a better connection with your unit members by using its innovative features for group messaging, assigning unit goals, progress reports, and more.

Men In The Beauty Consultant World




What? You just saw a man selling beauty and skincare products?! Well relax, even though it isn’t something you see every day and almost seems magical, it’s not exactly like spotting a unicorn. There is actually a growing number of men in the beauty consulting business, so much so that men even account for about 20% of beauty consultants.

Challenges Men Face In The Beauty Consulting Business

On the surface it seems like men are supposed to be manly, and not care about how their skin looks. When they get hurt, they don’t cry! They simply rub some dirt in their wounds!

However, in reality men face similar pressures in society to look their best and often turn to male skin care products and male fragrances to look and smell great. This isn’t news to us, because even Mary Kay launched products for men in 1964!

The makeup industry comes with a lot of pink and a lot of glitter, so the common thought is that men would avoid it at all costs, but in reality, some men are tough enough to wear pink. For years men have supported the color pink for causes like breast cancer awareness with confidence.

There can be a common assumption that women are intimidated by men and don’t want them in their homes to host parties, and don’t want to be approached on the street. That doesn’t stop dedicated salesmen from making sales while making both men and women feel comfortable and confident.

How Men Achieve Success

Male beauty consultants know that being metro sexual increases a man’s confidence. When men look their best they feel better, so they use that to their advantage to educate men about male skin care products.

Men market their skin products to the demographic that’s often skipped, men. They find men in positions where the elements are tough on their skin and offer products to heal, repair, and prevent damages.

For example, male pilots and flight attendants often have very dry, cracking skin due the the lack of humidity in planes, so male consultants can offer them moisturizers to hydrate and protect their skin. This technique works well for selling to female pilots and flight attendants as well.

Instead of hosting parties, men men often go out and about all around town to offer both men and women free facials to hook them on their products. They also inform everyone they meet about how rough the sun can be on skin. Damaging UV rays don’t discriminate, they do equal amounts of damage to people’s skin no matter what their gender is. Therefore, everyone could benefit from protective moisturizers and tinted sunscreens with an SPF of 35 or higher.

During parties or events male consultants can take on a nurturing and pampering role to relax potential clients as they get facials. This technique has so much success that most women prefer getting facials from men. It makes them feel relaxed and as if they’re receiving a royal treatment.

Ladies, keep in mind that you can appeal to men for sales too. Educate men about your products. For practice you can find husbands who are hiding away during parties and events to offer them a free facial or hand scrub.

Men Love It

The loving support and teamwork in the beauty consulting world inspires men to work their hardest. The confidence building environment empowers both men and women to reach for the stars to achieve high levels of success.

With the flexibility of beauty consulting men and women can work full time, part time, or simply sell beauty and skincare products as a hobby. This allows people to make a career out of sales, or to work in their free time for a fun activity.

The perks that comes with reaching high levels of success are both fun for men and women. Men love wearing red blazers and love it when they earn the right to use a company car. Not every cadillac is pink, but why does that matter? Even Elvis, the KING, drove a pink one.
