So you can’t afford $150 to go to an esthetician every few weeks for a light chemical peel, and you don’t want to get a deep chemical peel because of the risks of burns and the recovery period.

I suggest a small spa tote, but any small bag will do. Just make sure that it keeps any products upright that can spill. Mine is cheetah print BC Spa tote. I figure if I’m going to doRead More →

Like this? Then share it on Facebook! Did you know that in the summer your skin care regimen may need to change? As we spend more time at water parks, at the beach, in the pool, or at home gardening, the sun and chemicals we’re exposed to change the moisture level and texture of our skin. This means you might have to temporarily change your skin care regimen. Depending on the type of activities you’re doing this summer, you might be exposing your skin to different environmental factors, like chemicals, sun and humidity. If you’re going to water parks this summer, you’re more exposed to the drying effectsRead More →
