Hyaluronic acid is a natural component found in the body, and especially in the skin and connective tissues. It plays a critical role in attracting and maintaining skin’s moisture and as such, can be found in a wide range of skin care products. Sodium hyaluronate is a derivative of hyaluronic acid, and while both are similar in terms of benefits, there are key differences between the two. Let’s take a look at which one is best for your skin… What Is Sodium Hyaluronate?  Sodium hyaluronate is a sodium salt that’s been...

Aloe is one of the most prolific ingredients and recognizable botanical names in all of skin care. Widely available — you can find it potted in its succulent form mere feet away from its bottled extracts at virtually any CVS — aloe vera (the most commonly used species of the aloe genus when it comes to beauty and personal-care products) has been used on the skin for centuries, though there is limited scientific evidence and research on the role of aloe vera in skin care. That said, it is widely believed by experts...

However, come wintertime, you may find that there's a whole other beast of breakouts to deal with — and if your skin is naturally on the drier side, the last thing you probably feel like doing is slathering on a clay mask or reaching for harsh benzoyl peroxide in an attempt to get rid of them. Let’s take a look on how to deal with acne breakouts in winter…  6 Ways to Reduce Your...

Below we detail the mind-blowing skin care benefits of manuka honey and why it’s a must have during winter for glowing, healthy skin… The Science...

For all of winter’s much-anticipated seasonal joys, like hot chocolate by the fire and lavish dinners with the family, there’s always a downside. For many of us, eczema can seriously ruin the holiday season and make you dread winter. The cold outdoor climate and bursts of dry indoor heat often exacerbate dry skin conditions like eczema and put a damper on the season. But, with that in mind, we compiled 10 ways for you to stay on top of your eczema flare ups this winter, and have fun this Christmas… The Best...

Acne is a difficult and frustrating skin problem to deal with, whether it’s cystic acne, pimples, and hormonal breakouts. There are many factors that create acne, from hormones, stress, oily skin, free radicals, sensitivity, and plenty more. For years, salicylic acid has been the main product to use to treat acne, specifically from brands like Clinique and Proactiv. Basically, any brand that uses high percentages of Benzoic acid, salicylic acid, or prescription retinoids. For those looking for a more natural and known treatment for acne, look no further than manuka...

  Let’s face—excuse the pun—the facts about face eczema. It’s no walk in the park taking care of your face when you have eczema patches on it. Wearing makeup is a ‘just do it now, regret the flare up later’ type of deal. But one thing is for certain: you have to upkeep washing your face and keeping it hydrated with your skin care regimen. However, cleansing the skin thoroughly can be a curse with eczema or super sensitive skin. It can be a major challenge to get a good...

According to current studies, more than eight million Americans (and 125 million people worldwide) have psoriasis. And yet, despite its prevalence, it’s a skin condition that’s largely still misunderstood—not to mention misidentified given its similarities to eczema, a much more common skin condition that affects 31.6 million people in the U.S. Due to the frequent mix-up, we figured a guide to all things psoriasis and eczema could be of great use. While only a dermatologist can properly diagnose psoriasis and eczema (and determine the best course of treatment if you need...

Our skin structure is not at all the same, and it behaves differently according to where it’s located on our body. For example, some of our skin is more exposed to the sun, weather, cleaning products, etc., while other parts are mostly hidden from external forces. When you consider that not every inch of our skin is treated the same or as visible as other areas, why would you use a body lotion for your hands? Winter is not kind to our hands, and we are not kind to them...

Originally promoted as an all in one solution for practically every hair, skin, and diet woe, coconut oil has had its fair share of ups and downs. In some cultures, coconut oil is used for everything, especially for the skin (even as a natural sunscreen). While the craze has definitely dialed back at least where the oil’s dietary benefits are concerned, if you’re interested in swapping out your drugstore brand lotion for coconut oil, you should make sure you can benefit from it. We ask the question: just because some studies argue against...
