How to Treat Acne

On a regular basis I see clients about their acne. Unfortunately, acne does not care how old you are. In fact, most of my acne clientele are many years past their adolescence. Many of my acne clients are in their 30's and 40's. These clients are dealing with both acne and wrinkles. It's just not fair, but there is hope....more

5 Harmful Ingredients in personal care products

Just as you are concerned with the safety of the foods and supplements you consume, you should be careful about what you put on your skin. The skin is the largest body organ.

NaBloPoMo +1

Review: (seed) Healthy Hand Cream

I’ve always had what I call, “Old Lady Hands,” which means I’m constantly trying new hand creams. I’ve tried so many I can’t even remember all of them. I know I haven’t found one that I really like, and that really does what it says it does.
