Blue light is a hot topic right now, but it’s not a new issue. It’s actually been around ever since we started engaging with anything that has a light-emitting screen. What is new, however, is the amount of time we’re exposing ourselves to it. According to a recent survey, the average American spends 19 hours per day looking at some sort of digital device. Whether that’s working on your laptop, binge-watching Netflix, or doomscrolling Instagram before bed, all of these activities which are so important to our daily connectivity and sense of community, are unfortunately having detrimental effects on our wellbeing - and that includes our skin.
Glowing skin is always in. And, while we try to make the best of our natural radiance with elevated skincare, most of us need a little something extra to hit those high points and give our complexions that oh-so coveted lit-from-within effect. Faking it ’til we make it, highlighters have been an absolute essential in most beauty kits for some time now, served up in an array of deliciously different finishes and luminosities.
When developing a skincare routine, it is important to know your skin type and to pick products that are right for your skin. This will ensure that your products are working for you, and will not make any of your concerns worse. Whether your skin is oily, normal or dry you want to ensure that you have the perfect nighttime skincare routine.

When we think about skincare, for most of us the first thing that comes to mind is the face, and by extension, the neck and décolleté (the upper chest area). The reality is, there’s another area that sees as much (if not more!) daily use and exposure to the sun and environment, and is therefore just as susceptible to signs of aging, dryness and general wear and tear.

The post facial glow you have after receiving a professional skincare treatment is one that everyone should experience in their lifetime. You’ll marvel at how amazing your skin looks and how soft it feels and wonder why it took you so long to book that appointment in the first place. But then you’ll look at the costs and come back down to earth and remind yourself that although professional treatments produce amazing results, they usually require multiple sessions, which doesn’t always fit into the budget.
Summer isn’t just a season, it’s a lifestyle. From the clothes, to the activities, to the long, sunny days, we love being able to swap our snow clothes for swimsuits and enjoy more time outdoors. In the same way you swap out your wardrobe, summer is the perfect time to swap out products. Don’t do anything drastic (like changing your ENTIRE routine) but take a good look at the products you’re using and see if maybe a few can stand an upgrade to compete with the heat, sweat and sun.
It’s a fact of life, everybody makes mistakes. But some could be wreaking havoc on your skin without you even realizing it. So instead of ignoring our issues, let’s get your skincare routine on the right path and learn from our mistakes, shall we?
Hopefully by now you understand the importance of washing your face with a high quality cleanser. But if not, here's a refresher: cleansing removes makeup, dirt, pollution and other unmentionables from skin's surface. It preps skin for more active products like serums and allows them to penetrate skin's surface so they can produce results.

With Valentine’s Day quickly approaching, our office is buzzing with talk of Thursday night plans. For most people, Valentine’s Day can be a polarizing holiday- some plan months ahead for the perfect evening, with dreams of chocolates, roses and maybe even engagement rings in their future, while others choose to spend time with friends or even alone, fully embracing the #selflove mantra. We feel the same way, which is why we created 3 easy looks so that you can enjoy Valentine's Day no matter your plans for the evening.
Whether you watched the big game yesterday because you love football, love somebody who loves football or just had nothing better to do, we can bet you probably noticed a fully stocked buffet and bar.

When building a skincare regimen, it is essential to first determine your skin type if you want to see the best results from your products. Similarly, buying products that also address your unique skin concerns can drastically improve how you feel about your products. If you have oily, acneic skin, you’re likely going to hate a rich face moisturizer because it will exacerbate your concerns instead of alleviating them. Without knowing your skin type and skin concerns, it is almost impossible to choose the right products. Especially because there are some products that sound appealing even when they’re not meant for your skin type. If you fall for the benefits without considering your skin type you will be upset when the product doesn’t perform how you want.
It’s a fact of life, almost no one gets as much sleep as they want (and need) and it shows. For some, under eye circles have been a constant since their teenage years. For others, they’re just now starting to see the side effects of their choices made during their 20s and 30s.
