Product Layering is Beneficial

If you follow my blog, you know I’m obsessed with skincare probably more so than color cosmetics. I’m always on the hunt for the next best thing. Although, I really shouldn’t try to fix what’s not broken, since my current routine has been so effective for me. Sticking to the proper skin care routine is…

TULA 10% Glycolic Resurfacing Gel Review

The Proper Way to Layer Your Skincare Products

Most beauty and skincare enthusiasts know the proper order to use when applying skincare. Cleanse (or double cleanse), toner, serum, moisturizer, and SPF. Well, what about those of us who like to layer multiple serums? Does it work? Are we getting the maximum benefits or are we just wasting product? There is a way to…

Hydrating vs. Moisturizing Your Skin

Is there a difference, you may ask? As it turns out, a huge difference. In very simple terms, hydrating your skin means putting water back into it. Moisturizing your skin means you’re putting lipids (essential fats) into your skin. If you think about it, when we are thirsty, our bodies are dehydrated. We drink water…
