    Excuse #1: “I Don’t Have Time To Do All Of That!”


    I get it.

    Most of us have incredibly busy lives. But what concerns me is the message behind the belief that taking care of your skin is like preparing for an exam, time-consuming and exhausting.

    If taking care of your skin were that intensive nobody would do it!

    So the question I have for that excuse is, “What exactly is all that?

  • Are You Sick And Tired Of Shaving? (Here’s What To Do)

    UGH! Shaving is so tedious, isn’t it? And what about those ingrown hairs around your bikini line? That’s definitely an ouchy.

    Instead of putting up with the drudgery and inconvenience of shaving, just get rid of that unwanted hair!

    Breaking out? Check your cosmetics for this major pore-clogging ingredient.


    Isopropyl Myristate is an ester of isopropyl alcohol and myristic acid. Why do cosmetics companies use Isopropyl Myristate? It's a super emollient ingredient with a light, non-greasy feel. It adds an amazing 'slip' to products and is readily absorbed by the skin.

    The Dangers Of Washing Your Face With Deodorant Soap


    Give us a moment while we take a deep breath! It’s true that some women do wash their faces with deodorant soap. We know it’s not you, but would you please pass this information along to your friend?

    Facial skin has a lower pH than the rest of your body. That means it’s slightly more acidic. A deodorant soap, however, is more alkaline. When applied to your face, it encourages the growth of acne-causing bacteria.

    Does Exfoliation Cause Dry Skin?


    In short, no way! However, over exfoliation does cause rough, red irritated skin. That’s why we stress for you to be gentle with your home care. The harder you rub the product, the less positive results you will see. Instead, you will only damage your skin, and you definitely don’t want that!

    Gentle exfoliation should be an integral part of your skincare routine. It helps to speed up the process of skin renewal by removing old dead skin, revealing younger, smoother skin.

    It happens to all of us. You get caught up in all the responsibilities of life and neglect your skin. Suddenly you notice it looks dull and your make-up  “grabs.” That means adding more primer and more make-up to even it out.

    Not fun.


    Time to get back on track! Here are a few tips that will take you from dull to glow in no time.

  • “What’s The Difference Between An Enzyme Peel And A Chemical Peel?”

    Friday, September 18, 2015 - 4:38pm

    There’s a big difference!

    Both are important and have their rightful place in the world of skin rejuvenation. The enzyme peel is made from fruit enzymes. It both nourishes and sloughs off dead skin cells, creating the perfect pH balance for your skin.

    It also fights free radical damage, which causes premature aging, by removing the top layer of skin and exposing newer skin. Gentle and effective, even sensitive skin types can benefit.

    I love enzyme peels because the result is immediate.

  • Telltale Signs Of Over-The-Hill

    Tuesday, September 8, 2015 - 12:02pm

    There was a woman who was so insecure without her make-up, she would cover her face and run to the bathroom after a facial.

    No joke. And to make matters worse, the make-up she wore was heavy and obvious. That’s not good at any age. But at her age, it was worse!

    As we get older, we sometimes get stuck in…well, old patterns. We still feel the same but our bodies have changed. Hate that, don’t you?

    Here are three telltale mistakes that signal somebody’s stuck in a flashback:

  • Do You Have These Skin Complaints?

    Monday, August 31, 2015 - 2:07am

    I hear these complaints a lot:

    • “My skin looks dull and has lost its glow. I guess I have to live with it since I’m getting older, right?”
    • “What can I do for blotchy skin?”
    • “My skin is so clogged. UGH! I hate it!”


    The answer to these pesky problems is not only simple, but it’s THE most overlooked problem solver in skin care. What is it? Exfoliation.

  • Should You Price Shop Your Eyes?

    Monday, August 24, 2015 - 1:45am

    She was in tears; I was very nearly in tears, too, and it was just sad all the way around. But the moral to the story is this: when you’re searching for the “cheapest price,” make sure you stick to toilet paper, paper towels and gas.

    But never your eyes!

  • Why This Natural Treatment Beats Laser

    Monday, August 17, 2015 - 8:09pm
    When you hear the phrase “natural anti-aging treatments,” you might think these treatments couldn’t possibly be powerful enough to create dramatic change.
    Bah humbug!
    For years, laser has been the gold standard in the anti-aging world. The process stimulates collagen by heating and burning the skin to rejuvenate it. But the cost is high and the downtime long.
  • What's your Skin Type?

    Friday, July 24, 2015 - 12:34pm

    Oily Skin

    Oily skin tends to be shiny with enlarged pores, and is prone to blackheads and blemishes. You might experience some tightness.


    Combination/Normal Skin

    This skin type has medium pores, a smooth and even texture, good circulation, healthy color, may tend towards dryness on the cheeks while being oily in the T-Zone.
