I’m a big believer in the power of oils as they have the power to truly benefit our skin by deeply moisturizing it and providing it with the essential fatty acids it needs. They also protect our skin from the elements by keeping the good stuff in and the bad stuff out.
How many skincare products do you need? Now, that’s a good question! A recent beauty article from a distinguished magazine stated that our skin only needs a “good” cleanser, moisturizer and SPF to thrive. I agree that these three products are the workhorses of our skin care, but I think answering the above question is a bit more complicated for some of us. Understanding our skin and what it faces daily, can shed some light on what it needs.
Fall is a time of change. Along with the beautiful colours of the leaves and rotating our closets, cooler weather skincare products are a-must. It’s time to replace our gel cleanser with a creamier cleanser; to invest in a heavier moisturizer and a serum; to carry a flower water in our bags to mist with throughout the day.
Our number one goal when shopping for a sunscreen is to protect our skin and our children’s skin from the sun’s harmful rays. Exposure to UV rays is the main factor that causes skin cells to become cancer cells, so a good sunscreen is a-must for everyone who spends time outdoors in the summer. However did you know that many of the active ingredients found in chemical sunscreens are harmful to our health and skin?
Product review for Stark Skincare
Many of us struggle with darkness (and often puffiness) under our eyes which can age us, make us look tired or worse, ill. Dark circles can be seen on both men and women and are difficult to get rid of or at least improve; expensive serums which promise to work often leave us disappointed. There are numerous causes to dark circles and because of that it can be a challenge to pinpoint exactly what causes them but also how to treat them.
Using a colour corrector is essential before using your concealer if you want your makeup application to look flawless. I know you’re probably thinking, “Gee another product to add on?” However, if like me you have highly pigmented hereditary under-eye circles, you will truly appreciate what a colour corrector can do for your eyes and other areas of your face that might need colour-correcting for redness, dark spots, or dullness.
The holidays are here! During this busy, stressful and indulgent time of year, it’s always a good reminder to take some time to take care of yourself. I have several suggestions on my blog on how to take care of your skin now that the weather has gotten cooler, and I could remind you that you are what you eat and that it’ll show on your skin. However, I also know that it’s hard to cut back on anything this time of year because most of us celebrate by getting together with our loved ones and eating, eating and eating some more!
The benefits of cosmetic acupuncture to the skin have been listed by many so I decided that it was time I took the plunge. I’ve been very tired lately and can feel my face showing it. Although the condition of my skin is great, I can see that’s it’s lacking vitality and gravity is slowly taking its toll. In this blog I share the details of my first cosmetic acupuncture experience with you. It is a deeply relaxing experience and the results are immediately visible on the skin!
Have you ever read the ingredients on your facial cleanser? Yes, the one that gives you squeaky clean skin. Reading ingredient labels has become a sort of obsession for me lately. Every time I find myself in a skin care aisle, I pull out my phone and start photographing the front and back labels of skin care products. Yup. Pretty exciting stuff, huh? What intrigues me the most is comparing the front label – the smart marketing that actually makes me think that this product is good for my skin – to the actual ingredients on the back label.
