Let’s Face Mondays: The Dish on AHAs and BHAs

Among other anti-aging miracles out there, Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHAs) and Beta Hydroxy Acids (BHAs) take up a lot of space on store shelves and online reviews, but I find precious few people really understand what they are, and more importantly, how they work.

Let’s Face Mondays: Are DIY Skincare Products Better?

If you’re curious about the whole DIY skincare craze, you’re not alone, especially if you have sensitive skin. It sounds so green (and virtuous) to mash up an avocado and slather it onto our skin. But, certain questions rolled around our head – Does our skin absorb the benefit of […]
