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?

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 →

Expect that by age 60 or above, your skin cells will renew every 40 days! This is a natural process, and part of life, but you can help your skin along! Exfoliating at home can slough off those dead skin cells sitting at the surface, to reveal brand new, babyRead More →

To fake a tan at home there are two options: An Instant Full Body Bronzing or A Gradual Tan For the Instant Full Body Bronzing you will need to first exfoliate your skin thoroughly.
