Tip of the Month

The most important thing to know about a moisturizer is that it is water, not grease, and even oily skin needs water. Imagine a raisin, this is what skin cells look like when they lack water. A moisturizer will improve the quality of your skin and keep your cells well hydrated, like a grape.

Skincare Tips

Eat right.

The holidays are a time for fun, family, and FOOD. Although diet has little to do with breakouts, the truth is that what you don't eat is actually more important than what you do eat. Chocolate and French fries won't cause acne, however if your diet consists of fatty foods, high in salt and sugar, then you will not have the nutrients needed to maintain skin health. Drink lots of water and eat plenty of fresh fruits, vegetables and nutrients rich in Vitamin A to help normalize the production of dead skin cells, a key factor in acne breakouts.
