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 →

In skincare, most are rendered ineffective after a certain amount ofRead More →

TGIF Loves! Today I am going to share with you all about topical Vitamin C- what it is, what it does, and why you need it! I believe that everyone should be on an Antioxidant as part of their basic skincare routine!  “Skin is naturally built for repair. When bombarded by environmental assaults, skin must focus on neutralizing oxidative damage, limiting its capacity for reparative functions. Daily use of pure vitamin C antioxidants, when properly formulated to penetrate skin, protect against damage, enhancing self-repair to reduce signs of aging.” -Dr. Sheldon Pinnell M.D., Founder of SkinCeuticals What is Vitamin C and What Does it Do for The Skin?

For the past month, I have tested out Biopelle’s Tensage Stem Cell Cream. If you’ve read my anti-aging regimen post, you have seen that I swear by Growth Factors as an essential part of an anti-aging regimen. Now I’m going to introduce you to Stem Cells, another powerful anti-aging tool for your skincare toolbox! As we age, our body’s natural stem cells lose their capacity to self renew as well as to create new cells after the old cells have died. As the existing cells begin to deplete, the proteins within them do as well. These proteins are vital to the support of the skin’sRead More →
