Confessions of a skincare junkie

Clean beauty 

Isn’t dermaplaning just shaving your face? It is essentially shaving the fuzz (known as vellus hair) off the face, but it’s so much more!!  Dermaplaning uses a smaller blade to slough off dead skin cells. Hello, exfoliation! It sounds intense, but it’s painless, quick, and effective at removing dead skin cells and peach fuzz. It’s […]

A skin tool you probably already own and didn’t even know it. Why a humidifier is your skin’s new best friend, Y’all know I love skincare that you don’t have to think about, like sleep masking. Now you can add sleep hydrating. The juicy, dewy, plumpness we all strive for can be achieved by sleeping […]

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 […]

Darlings, it’s that time of year again, and I can’t help but wonder: how do you feel about the holidaze season? Yes, I call it “holidaze” because it used to leave me feeling like I was in a daze from November to January. Between work, parties, dinners, and the quest for the perfect gift, I […]

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 […]

We all have a favourite face cream or treatment, but there’s no denying that beautiful skin starts from within. Everything we put in our mouths becomes a part of our inner being and the outer fabric of our body. The healthier the foods you consume, the better your skin will look. Plain & simple.  Old […]

When I first started working as an esthetician 22 years ago, Brazilian waxes were the domain of exotic dancers. But they’ve since gone mainstream. Everyone from your little sister to your 60-year-old neighbor (no joke) gets one. But what is a Brazilian wax? A Brazilian includes the traditional bikini area, hair along the labia, and […]

Bring on the sun. I love that instant rush of feel-good hormones we get as soon as the sun hits our skin. It’s also a bonus we don’t have to remember to take vitamin D because (well, if you live in Canada) the sun is finally showing its face again. Welcome back…Welcome back. This time […]

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 […]
