BMPRO SMILE OF THE DAY
BEHIND THE SCENCES ( UK PHOTOSHOOT)
The day of the shoot. We set out early and get to jides studio ready to shoot. Then I realise I have no foundation or eyeshadow brushes!!! We set off to boots with iris and Lanray as well as Imelda in tow. A few knick knacks picked as well as the brushes and we start heading back home. Then Jide offers me macadamia nuts which I gobble. I noticed Iris's neck was quite dry and decided to moisturise with some cocoa butter. So I slather it on with my macadamia nut oil infested fingers. Next thing she starts I itching and crying. 2 mins later she has the biggest hives I have seen in a very long time. Her face swells at an alarming rate even as I gave her piriton. . It continued to swell and the ER was the only option. We all promptly drove to the hospital and here we are!! What an incredible start to the day! Caria finally arrives and I can't believe how slim she is. I focus on skin first and the shoot progressed as quickly as Iris's face swelled up.
Her trip to the ER yielded results as she was pronounced allergic to nuts and given anti histamines. JA was such a sport all the while and it was an amazing day I must say. And the images? The "oohs " and "ahhs" that filled the room with the first uploads was astounding!
P.S I have decided to fast and stay hungry all day Ayo, just in case :)

FACT OR FICTION?
We have all heard or read some of these myths. Some are true some are not so true. I find some absolutely hilarious too……
Chocolate and Fatty foods cause acne. There is no scientific evidence to indicate that diet plays a determining role. The ‘westernized’ diet is high in preservatives, colourants and processed foods and supports the most acne-prone populations. The Asian and Mediterranean populations, however, generally eat more good fatty acids and far less processed foods. Meanwhile our own saturated fat filled meals a.k.a. Ofada stew, dodo, fried suya( Glover court suya/tozo)—even writing the name is making me want to stop by! Makes me wonder if we are not doomed to battle acne all our lives. But quite a number of lucky souls have never experienced acne so it makes me wonder.Although acne is less common in these areas, the role of genetic factor is unclear.
Acne is due to poor hygiene
The blackness we see is a result of an oxidization process that turns the sebum and dead cells black in colour. It is not dirt. In fact, over-cleansing can aggravate acne.
Sunlight improves acne
The sun can seem to improve the complexion, but it also suppresses the immune system. That is why acne often seems to get worse a few weeks after sun exposure. The sun also stimulates sebum secretion. It is more advisable to wear an oil-free sunscreen.
There is not enough evidence to suggest that acne and diet are related but some people find out that certain foods make their acne worse. Common culprits include Chocolate, caffeine, nuts, high-fat and spicy foods, citrus fruits, Dairy Products, and food with a high iodine contents such as artichokes, seaweeds, spinach and shellfish. Certain medications can also cause a flare-up.
Stress triggers the adrenal glands to release the hormone cortisol, which increase the secretion of sebum.
