Summer is upon us, with longer days , more time spent outdoors (if you live in the Northeast!), which includes time in the sun and at the beach. Should you switch up your skincare routine? I’ve got all the details! Here’s the post on Silk Therapeutics’ website!    Switch to a Serum As the air gets warmer and more humid, the moisturizer that sustained you during the dry winter months may be too heavy for summertime. Consider switching to a hydrating serum instead of a cream to wear under your sunscreen for day and over your corrective serums at night. Stay in the Shade (andRead More →

Want to know what’s on skincare guru and founder of Rhonda Allison skincare line’s shelf? She’s shared with me! Rhonda: “I use the Minus 10 Collection, and for cleansing I use the Foaming Peptide Cleanser and the Pumpkin Cleanser. I used to use just the Pumpkin cleanser and now that I am in my late 60’s I’ve added the Foaming Peptide. I’m almost 70 now… and your skin changes with every decade.

Happy Monday beauties!!! I had the opportunity to review a product called “MONQ” and I wanted to share my thoughts with you! What MONQ is: MONQ is a personal essential oil diffuser that you inhale from through your mouth and exhale through your nose. When you exhale through your nose as opposed to your mouth, molecules pass the olfactory nerve endings in your upper nasal passageway. This action is the first step to noticeable therapeutic effects. While the aromatherapy effect from the olfactory nerves starts immediately, it usually does not peak for at least a few minutes. The company recommends that you take a gentle breath or twoRead More →

The dangers and downsides of expired product Some cosmetics such as mascara can breed bacteria after they have expired. In skincare, most are rendered ineffective after a certain amount ofRead More →
