Full-Bodied Skin Care: Splurge vs. Save

Anti-aging shouldn’t stop at the neck. In fact, hands are one of the easiest places to spot someone’s age; they’re rarely cared for as well as the face is, and the rest of the body often ends up equally overlooked. If you really want to stay soft skinned, you must pamper yourself from head to toe…

The Body Shop Hemp Range and the Benefits of Hempseed Oil

The Body Shop Hemp Range and the Benefits of Hempseed Oil

I’ll resist the urge to make some hemp-related joke as the truth is hemp and hempseed oil in particular make for fantastic skincare ingredients! Hempseed oil is very high in omega 3, 6, and 9 fatty acids so they’ll help to moisturize, but also nourish your skin. The Body Shop Hemp Range is a fantastic frugal way to get those benefits.

Anti-aging for Hands: Tips from Dr. Paul Carniol

When it comes to anti-aging, our main priority always seems to be the face. That’s smart – it’s the first thing that people notice about us. But evidence of that little number on your driver’s license can pop up basically everywhere. In fact, hands age faster than our faces. One day they look young and […]

Julep Reveal Nail Growth Revitalizing Serum: Long and Strong

I have the world’s strongest nails. I’ve even used them as a screwdriver to open battery compartments on my son’s toys. It’s a blessing and a curse, though. They grow faster than weeds. I know I shouldn’t complain, but if I don’t get manicures every week and half, they grow so much that you see […]

Niven Morgan Blue Body Lotion: The Smell of the Sea

I normally try to find fragrance-free lotions that won’t interact with my perfume, but I love the smell of Niven Morgan’s Blue body lotion ($28) so much that I actually wear it for the scent. I wish they had a perfume or room spray (let’s hope someone in their development department reads this post!), but […]

Whether you’re on the dry West Coast or the frigid East Coast, you need a good moisturizer right about now. So, I keep Aveda Hand Relief on my desk all the time. There’s nothing more distracting than having dry, cracking hands while you’re working. I’m constantly staring at them and criticizing everything (luckily today I […]
