Chemical vs. Physical SPF

As a skincare/beauty junkie, I am always careful about using SPF all year round. Regardless of the season, it’s vital to use SPF even if it’s cloudy. I was using a skincare line faithfully and always wore a sunscreen in the form of makeup or a moisturizer that contained SPF. I was on a really…

Retinol is NOT Good for Anti-Aging!

Retinol has been known to be the one ingredient everyone should be using in their skin care regimen because of its anti-aging properties.

Benefits of 24K Gold on Skin

Need Advice! Is Retinol A Necessity?

Hey, beauties! I seem to have a lot to say today! As a skincare specialist working for a high-end beauty line out of France, I’ve learned that retinol is an absolute necessity to incorporate into our skincare regimen. It’s touted to be the best ani-aging ingredient to date. Although argan oil has many powerful anti-aging…
