    Spotlight on Micellar Water

    Beauty Water

    What is Micellar Water? Micellar water has become increasingly popular and for very good reason. It’s claim to fame is it’s ability to remove makeup, cleanse, and tone with just a few light swipes of a cotton ball without causing inflammation or irritation to your skin. Micellar waters are made using purified water, moisturizers like glycerin, and mild surfactants, which are compounds used for cleansing. They are comprised of dirt-loving micelle molecules that attach to makeup and debris to break it down. Plus, they are free of alcohol which helps promote skin hydration, keeping your skin soft, supple, and smooth. What are the Benefits and Uses of Micellar Water? 1.…

    Rene Hydralift

    Let’s chat about the five steps you can take today for more healthy and radiant skin! From increasing your water intake to knowing when to throw away your expired products, these steps will have your skin glowing in no time. 1. Drink water While I personally love a laundry list of great skincare products to use, I have found the number one recommended thing you can do daily is drink plenty of water. If your skin is not getting the sufficient amount of water, the lack of hydration will present itself by turning your skin dry, tight and flaky. Dry skin has less resilience and is more prone to wrinkling.…

    Are you Double Cleansing?

    I just recently heard about the skincare trend of double cleansing and have to admit I am late to the party. This technique became popular in Japan and South Korea before catching on in Europe and now in North America. What is double cleansing? Simply put, double cleansing is the method of cleansing your face twice. But why would you want to wash twice? Isn’t this just a marketing ploy to make you spend more money on skincare products? Stick with me because this actually makes a lot of sense and your skin will thank you for it. The purpose of your first cleanse is to break down the daily…

    How to Deal with the Dreaded Maskne

    Retinol Oil

    Have you heard of Maskne before now? When I mentioned it to my husband the other day, he thought I was crazy. But it’s absolutely a thing. So, what exactly is Maskne (pronounced mask-knee)? It is the combination of sweat, oil, and moisture from prolonged breathing under a mask. This can clog your pores, therefore, causing an acne flare up. Chances are you live in an area like me where masks are required in public places. Or maybe you are a Front Line worker (aka, HERO so thank you very much for all you do) and you have no choice but to wear one for 8+ hours a day. Since…
