All About Oils

September 20, 2017

So I don’t know if any of you all have noticed but lately ‘oil’ in the skincare world is a hot item right now. It’s funny because several years ago a ton of beauty products were all about being ‘oil-free’ because it had a pretty bad reputation. Back then, putting oil on your face seemed pretty counter-intuitive because we already have oils that our faces produce naturally. However, we are finding out that facial oil can have some pretty amazing benefits – ESPECIALLY those who have dry or flaky skin as it is the key to having a hydrated and soft face. If you’re not super keen on putting oil on your face you can always start small and put a little drop in your daily or nighttime moisturizer. That’s normally what I do and have seen a difference in my complexion because it looks so much brighter and my face is incredibly soft. Below are a few of my favorite oil based facial products.

My Dermaplaning Experience

September 10, 2017

So a few weeks ago I finally decided to give in and make an appointment with an esthetician and try dermaplaning. For those of you who don’t know what dermaplaning is- it’s a non-invasive procedure in which the top layer of dead skin cells gets scraped away as well as those teeny tiny vellus hairs (also known as peach fuzz). Before you ask- no the hair does not grow back darker or thicker. That is a MYTH! It grows back the exact same as it was before. By the end of the procedure your face is supposed to be smoother, brighter, and more youthful. Before/After pictures are below as well as my own personal review and FYI I did not use any filters, effects, etc. It’s the real deal!
