  More people are upping up their handwashing game now that the CDC and health officials have emphasized that regular hand washing is imperative to helping curb the spread of COVID-19. But there's one step we all tend to forget after washing our hands or applying hand sanitizer – that critical layer of hand cream. Ironically, by over-washing our skin, we can develop dry cracks that can create an entry point into our bodies and expose us to bacteria, which is the last thing any of us want right now....

  By now you’ve probably heard that it's best to shut down all screens at least an hour before bed. But at the end of a long day, who can resist a cozy-in-bed Insta rabbit hole? Or, maybe you’ve seen special screens or other blue light-blocking products advertised on your Amazon homepage but continued to scroll on by (oh, the irony right?).  But real talk: It’s actually paramount to stop and reflect on how the things we mindlessly use daily are actually affecting us. Our eyes and skin are constantly...

During cold and flu season, the chances of getting sick are unfortunately pretty high. You can always go the conventional route and stock up on cough drops and cough syrup for a quick fix, or you can go the more natural route and try some remedies that you can find in your pantry. Natural cough remedies lack many of...

It’s a pretty common denominator that the stress you experience in life shows up on your face. Stress acne, premature wrinkles, and fine lines, dry skin, inflammation…you name it, and all of us will undoubtedly deduce that it was caused by some form of stress. Add in major life changes, lack of sleep and a less-than-perfect diet and that will take a toll on anyone’s emotional and mental wellbeing! Physically, the stresses typically manifest in a lackluster complexion, facial dryness and breakouts the caliber of which we haven’t seen since...

  Psoriasis is the number one most prevalent autoimmune disease in the United States, affecting as many as 7.5 million Americans. It's an inflammatory skin condition that causes the skin cells to build up on the surface of the skin, resulting in well-demarcated, thick, red scaly patches on the skin. Did you know that there are five different types, all varying in severity—erythrodermic psoriasis, for example, results in burned-looking skin and may require hospitalization.  Psoriasis can also be triggered by illnesses like strep throat, and in some cases is associated with arthritis....

  Cleansing the skin thoroughly is an integral step in most skin care routines, but if you’ve been cursed with eczema or super sensitive skin, it can be a major challenge to get a good deep clean without leaving the skin chapped, irritated, dry and as red as a ripe tomato. Finding the best cleanser for eczema and sensitive skin is no easy feat, and if you suffer from either skin condition, you already know that it can be a downright painful game of trial and error (and plenty of irritation, to...

  Kourtney Kardashian scoops up raw spoonful’s of the stuff. Laura Dern dips it into her green tea. Scarlett Johansson dabs it on her glowing skin. Novak Djokovic uses it to boost his tennis game. Even Dr. Oz is in love with this product known as "liquid gold." But it's not just celebrities who are into manuka honey. Wellness-obsessed consumers are lining up for this enticing — and expensive — substance, both for ingesting it as part of their diet and in their skin care. Diving into the Health Benefits of Manuka Honey What is this mythical concoction? It's honey. Manuka...

When buying manuka honey, some good things to look for are a UMF rating, MGO rating, and NPA (non-peroxide activity). Each of these displays a certain potency level as each rating is a different percentage of manuka. Don’t be fooled by labels with total activity counts that combine non-peroxide and peroxide activity to hide a low NPA value. There is plenty of honey around the world with high peroxide activity — it’s the non-peroxide activity that makes manuka honey unique. Not sure what all that means? We’ll explain. Breaking Down the Ratings...
