Benefits of Ice Therapy for the Skin

I'm always watching out for new (or at least new to me) beauty treatments that are natural, affordable and effective.  I'm probably not ever going to tell you to run to your local spa and get a $200 sperm facial.  I truly am a minimalist and this helps when you're trying to stay natural and go easy on the wallet.  I had heard of the benefits of ice on the skin for quite sometime but it wasn't until my face swelled up like a balloon thanks to pollen literally taking over the outdoors, that I … [Read more...]

The Benefits of Toner and Are They Really Necessary??

Toners are one of those skin care products that a lot of people question whether they actually do anything.  In fact, I myself have questioned their importance so that's why I decided to do some digging and finally find out if they are more then just refreshing spritzers that smell good. Originally, toners were absolutely necessary due to cleansers having a very high pH.  In order to restore the skin's pH after harsh cleansers, a product was needed that had a neutral pH.  Most skin care … [Read more...]

Ingredient Spotlight-Hydrosol Uses & Benefits

Hydrosols are one of my favorite things.  Like rain drops on roses and whiskers on kittens, favorite things.  They come in so many different scents and have so many uses!  Sometimes essential oils are expensive (I'm talking about you, Rose!) but they are so useful for the skin!  Hydrosols or infused water can deliver all the benefits of an essential oil to the skin!  They are gentle yet effective and are wonderful additions to toners and many other DIY beauty products!

My Favorite Summer Beauty Tip…

This post might seem like a no-brainer but up until a few months ago I was seriously neglecting my upper chest, or as the french say, decolletage.  Let me make something clear, this isn't a post about boobs.   I'm talking about the shoulders, collar bones, and upper chest area.  I guess you could say it's a post about cleavage, but totally not the push-up bra, get those puppies up to your neck type of cleavage.  So often this skin is exposed to the sun as often as the hands and face but we … [Read more...]

TOP 7 “worth your time” DIY’s…

DIYs can be a mixed bag.  Seems to me like there are some things you should absolutely do yourself and there are others you should leave to the experts.  I know I confuse a lot of you because I am known for skin care diys.  Honestly, that's what most people come to my site for.  Don't get me wrong, there's nothing I like better then figuring out how to do something with little to know harmful ingredients and save loads of money in the process, but I never intended to base my blog around it. That … [Read more...]
