The real deal when it comes to skin purging, however, is that it’s not nearly that gruesome (or to be feared). Rather, a skin purge simply refers to the reaction some skin has to certain products, namely, retinol and acids. These specific ingredients are known as chemical exfoliants, and...

Especially for those of us who fall victim to the drying and burning side effects of pimple potions, addressing the situation internally makes for less stress on the skin (and in general). So, when we recently learned that spearmint tea is acne's foe (more on that to come), we decided to research some other ways to sip our way to a clearer complexion, sans skin care products (but...

  With the majority of us having been confined to our homes and limiting ourselves to one form of exercise outdoors every day, various elements of our previous lives have been forced to change.

Wearing little to no make-up combined with a speedy bed-to-desk commute might sound like the recipe for a flawless complexion,...

Although our individual acne symptoms—like pimples—will eventually go away, sometimes a scar can stick around for weeks or even months. Professional treatments like micro needling, dermal fillers, lasers, and chemical peels can be very useful in reversing the indentations left by scars, but your wallet will be happy to know that an inexpensive, all-natural ingredient can also help improve the appearance of scarring: aloe vera. To learn what aloe vera can do for acne scars, and how to get the most...

They call honey the “nectar of the Gods,” and based on its myriad benefits, it makes perfect sense why. Beyond simply being a natural sweetener for your tea, honey is a decadent beauty elixir with countless healing properties. But not every honey is created equal. Specifically, there are particular benefits of manuka honey for skin that go above and beyond other kinds of honey! For some quick background: Manuka honey is a stronger, darker variety created by bees that feed on manuka flowers, which are found in New Zealand. Interestingly, the use...

A guideline that was supposed to be regularly followed was now mandatory and most people have now seen the unfortunate results that come with stripping away the hand's natural oils with lengthy hand washing and consistent use of hand sanitizer or antibacterial wipes.
