When I was a kid, we lived in a big old colonial house that was a massive "fixer upper" (remember the movie with Tom Hanks "The Money Pit"?! Yeah, like that). My mom and dad worked their butts off trying to fix up that monster. One thing I remember was watching my mom strip the woodwork of the old paint. She'd smear some gelatinous goo on the wood to make the layers of paint magically loosen and come off. I always thought that was pretty cool. It seemed like a much neater, more efficient way to "exfoliate" the paint than using a sander. Sanding seemed harsh to me, and if not done correctly, could result in scratches in the wood.

This reminded me of the difference between using a scrub exfoliant and a exfoliant based in enzymes and acids.
Most of the time, I prefer my clients use an exfoliant that is an enzyme or acid, rather than something abrasive. Yes, in some cases I will recommend an exfoliant that has a mild grit to it, especially if the client has resistent clogging or tends to get a lot of buildup and flaky skin (and also tolerates abrasion well), but I really want people to be careful to not rub too hard, or too often. It's easy to over-do it with scrubs. Acids and enzymes do the job without all the scrubbing, which is great especially if you have delicate skin and broken capillaries (telangiectasias).

In simplistic terms, enzymes and acids help to break down the proteins and the "glue" that holds your skin cells together, enabling the skin to release the dull looking stuff that is sticking around, leaving the surface of the skin more radiant, luminous, hydrated looking, and more able to absorb your serums and moisturizer. Your products will perform better for you when you don't have build up on the face. So next time you reach for that tube of scrub, consider trying an enzyme mask to refresh your skin! Your face will thank you!

"Do you clean your makeup brushes at least once a month? If not, here's why you should..

Cleaning your makeup brushes should be a regular part of your routine. Makeup brushes can be home to dirt, oil, debris and buildup that can seriously aggravate and harm your skin. Cleansing your tools regularly is the best way to prevent this buildup from causing problems such as acne and blemishes. Not only does regular sanitizing kill bacteria, it also helps your brushes last longer and provides you with the best makeup application."

Why Skincare Should ALWAYS Be Bought From A Trusted Source

“What does this mean to your skin? Well, if a gray market product is expired, it may be unstable or have lost significant efficacy. Similarly, if a product has been tampered with, it will not have the desired effect or could be detrimental to your skin. Even worse, the contents could be totally counterfeit, which in other words, means you could have bought an entirely different formula.”

“A Base Tan Is Not a Safe Tan. There is a common misconception that a tan acts as the body’s natural protection against sunburn. The Burning Truth: A tan is the body’s response to injury from UV rays, showing that damage has been done. A “base tan only provides a sun protection factor (SPF) of about 3 or less, which does little to protect you from future UV exposure.”

Source: CDC

Getting a base tan before spring break is not a good idea. Tanning beds can increase your risk of melanoma by 59%. If you want to look tan, use a self-tanner, but continue to use sunscreen with it.

Who needs sunscreen and why..

Who needs sunscreen & why....Every skin tone is vulnerable to the “ravages” of the sun. Sun damage can present its self in several different ways, chronic sunburn, redness and spider veins, deep wrinkles and fine lines, sagging skin, a rough, leathery skin, hyperpigmentation (uneven skin tone, dark spots and hormonal patches called melasma), pre-cancerous lesions known as keratoses and skin cancers, including the often fatal melanoma.
