The tiny food particles that get stuck on your teeth can turn into acid because of bacteria which would then eat away at the enamel, dentine and then eventually the pulp causing tooth decay and a very painful toothache.

The PEI method divides glazed tiles into 5 scales in order to differentiate between the abrasion resistance. The details are given below:

Group I: Tiles coming under this group are only suited for areas with light or no foot traffic. Wall tiles usually come under this group. Tiles in this are very rarely used as floor tiles.

Group II: These tiles can be used in medium level traffic areas in your home.

Group III: Tiles that come under this group can be used everywhere in your home.

Group IV: Tiles with the level of abrasion resistance can be used in homes as well as in commercial areas with light to medium traffic.

What are some makeup tips for people having darker coloured skin?

1 user answered

Taran Luthra, Bilaspur
User, Level 8 Contributor
Try the following tips:

  • Avoid light makeup since it can make the skin appear chalky. It is better to use foundations that are yellow based so that there is no visible line between the foundation and exposed skin.  Make sure that makeup that you use matches your skin tone.
  • Check the foundation under natural light in order to ensure that it matches your skin tone. If you can't find the right colour for the foundation try mixing two different shades to create a shade that might suit you.
  • Avoid frosty lip colours. Try lipsticks that complement your darker skin tone like earth, neutral, pink or other darker shades.
  • Use a concealer to hide blemishes
  • For eye shadows, note that shiny and metallic colour tones would suit darker skin tone well. you can also try mixing some complementary colours for darker skin tones, especially the brighter colours.
