Confessions of a skincare junkie

Clean beauty 

My word for this year is wellness. Now, wellness & health have always been a big part of my life, and I love nothing more than reading/listening/watching anything health related. But just because I have learned about it doesn’t necessarily mean I have tried it or put it into practice. So this is the year […]

How do you feel about the holidaze season? Yes, I call it holidaze because I used to feel like I was in a daze from Nov to Jan. Between work, parties, dinners, and shopping for the perfect gift, I would wear myself out and wind up with a bladder infection and TMI, maybe. Did you […]

Forty-three trips around the sun + growing. Today marks my 43rd trip around the sun, which means I am one year older, right? But what if I said I had grown another year? We emphasize aging, but what if we flipped the script and changed aging to growing? We never tell a child, “you’re getting […]

This is one of those rare times that you will hear sugar is good for you, but I am not talking about a delicious sweet treat. I am talking about Hyaluronic Acid or, as you will often see, abbreviated HA. Are you feeling a little perplexed with what HA has to do with sugar? HA […]

Do you know the difference between dry & dehydrated skin? Most people use these words interchangeably, but they are two different skin conditions.  Dehydrated skin lacks water, and dry skin lacks lipids (oil).  Dehydrated skin is a temporary condition that can be fixed by topical skincare and lifestyle changes that can help the skin stay […]

During the great pause of the pandemic, did you feel the shift? The shift from being over-scheduled to not scheduled at all. I will let you in on a bit of a secret. I enjoyed it. It was probably one of the best things that happened in my adult life. Before you lose your mind […]

Do chemical peels bring visions of Samatha from Sex & The City? I know that is my first thought…. and for a good reason, those reactions can happen. Before we let our fears get the better of us, let’s learn more about chemical peels. What is a chemical peel?  A chemical peel is a cosmetic […]
