Vegan coQ10 & Squalane Eye and Lip Treatment

I'm really excited about this DIY!  First of all, it's multi purpose.  Two birds with one stone is always a good idea!  Plus, it incorporates a few new ingredients that I've just recently discovered that work incredibly well together.  Last, this blend of essential oils is so good for repairing and protecting the delicate skin around the eyes and lips.  This is a simple DIY that takes minutes to make.  You can use it throughout the day or just in the morning or evening.  It's light and absorbs … [Read more...]

DIY Acne Clearing Moisturizer

As I posted a few weeks ago, I had quite the shopping spree at Mountain Rose Herb, where I purchase about 90% of all my skin care ingredients.  I blindly chose a few oils that were affordable not really knowing what they were good for.  Turns out,  several of them are perfect for oilier skin types and known to not clog pores.  So, I formulated a super simple facial oil that is non-comedogenic, will help fade acne scaring and has been proven to reduce inflammation while killing bacteria.  While … [Read more...]

Indie Lee calls their calendula balm "a … [Read more...]

Ingredients Spotlight: Squalane

Squalane is an up and coming beauty product that has numerous benefits and when sourced properly, is organic, vegan and great for all skin types! Squalane belongs to the oil family.  It is found naturally in our skin and helps with cell function, elasticity and hydration.  By around the age of 25, the amount of squalane in our skin begins to rapidly decline.  By age 50, we have only 5% left.  Just like it's cousins, collagen, coQ10 and hyaluronic acid-they don't stick around indefinitely and … [Read more...]
