Top 5 Must-Try Primers

Top 5 Must-Try Primers: Prime-Time Slot

If you wear foundation without a primer, you may want to reconsider your beauty routine. You can wear primer by itself, but trust me, do not wear foundation on its own. Here’s why: If you wear foundation on naked skin, all of that foundation just oozes and sinks into your pores, fine lines, and wrinkles – and makes them bigger. It’s like pouring cement into sand! Okay, that’s a bit of an exaggeration, but it’s the same idea.

Natural Beauty Buys You Can Feel Good About

Ever since I read that the FDA allows up to 80 synthetic ingredients to be included in gum, I’ve been perturbed. If there’s that much junk in our gum, what the heck is in the stuff we put on our faces and worse, our lips?!

Holiday Gifts with Heart

The oft-quoted statistic says that 20% of New Yorkers go to bed hungry, and that one in four children in New York goes to bed hungry. Horrifying. A close friend of mine was one of those kids, and to this day she has anxiety about ever returning to the times when creditors were knocking on her parents’ front door and dinner wasn’t guaranteed.

Lift, Lift, and Away: Chantecaille Bio Lifting Cream is a Dream

I’ve seen just about every fad come and go (thanks to the Digital Age, trends get recycled as quickly as the seasons change!), but one thing never goes out of style: anti-aging – or more specifically, lifting products that claim to reverse time.

Aveeno: A Lifetime Commitment

I started using Aveeno back in college. Whenever I had skin issues, switching to Aveeno helped get me on track; so after I gave birth, I wasted no time in making my baby boy a convert, as well.

Eye Serums vs. Eye Creams: The Good, the Better, and the Best

With all of the skincare “must-haves” out there these days (and less time to fit them all into your beauty routines), it’s best to minimize the amount of product on your vanity and decide what works best for you. And that brings me to a question I’ve been asked a lot lately…

Why You Might Want to Use Facial Oil — Even on Oily Skin

Facial oils aren’t evil – even if you have oily skin! In fact, facial oils, for the most part, work for all skin types. Why? Most people with oily skin tend to over-cleanse in an effort to control the levels of oil on their skin. Unfortunately, this only makes your skin produce more oil…
