Unplugging: Do you need a social media detox?
Unplugging: Do you need a social media detox?

February 12, 2019

You sit staring at a computer screen all day at work. You text back and forth. You answer emails. You’d think that once the work day is over and the dinner dishes have been cleared that you’d be ready to sit and relax.

The reality, though, is that most people are still plugged into their phones in the evening. Texts continue. Work emails are read and answered long after the work day has ended. Then you just have to check your Facebook feed, order a new pair of shoes, pin recipes and DIY projects over on Pinterest, and share the latest photo on Instagram. And then there is the stressful reading of political posts that appear day after day. Honestly, it can be stressful!

It is almost as if we panic at the thought of missing out on something important if we put the phone down. What would happen if you stayed away from social media for an evening?

Would it be the end of the world? Absolutely not.

What is milia and how do you get rid of it?
What is milia and how do you get rid of it?

February 05, 2019

Have you ever noticed tiny white bumps that look like they are right under your skin? Perhaps you have. Milia can appear around the eyes, forehead, nose, and cheeks. They seem to linger and are resistant to most typical acne treatments. Just what is milia and how do you get rid of it? Let's find out!

What causes milia?

Milia can occur for several reasons. I know that I have heard so many women say, "but I wash my face thoroughly."  The truth is that it is not because your skin isn't clean enough. 

 

Our skin naturally sloughs off dead skin cells. Sometimes, though, the skin doesn't shed those cells and what happens is that sebum and keratin will get trapped underneath the epidermis. When this happens, they build up and get lodged in sweat glands and hair follicles rather than being shed. Before you know it, cysts form and you'll notice those little white bumps that do not seem to go away.

There are several skin care ingredients that may contribute to milia. I will share those with you in a moment.

Polar Vortex Skin Care Tips
Polar Vortex Skin Care Tips

January 29, 2019

Many parts of the country are about to see dangerously cold temperatures, thanks to the Polar Vortex this week. In fact, many meteorologists are saying that we could be experiencing some of the coldest weather in years. The brutal cold and snow can easily wreak havoc on your skin, so we thought this would be a great time to share some of our Polar Vortex skin care tips with you.

1. Layer your skin care.

Think of how we dress in this weather to keep warm: by wearing layers. Layering your skin care offers many benefits. Our skin is particularly susceptible to the harsh winter elements. Dehydration is common. Help protect the skin and lock in moisture by applying a dry body oil followed by a rich body cream or balm. Doing so will help seal all of the beneficial butters and plant oils into your skin, making them even more effective.
