I’ve been busy, and it clearly hasn’t been with creating content for this blog since it’s been three months since my last post! WHOOOOOPS
New Products Announcement
Velvet Cleansing Milk is a rich, emollient cream cleanser that effectively removes dirt, grime, and other buildup while leaving your skin’s natural oils in place. Its cleansing power comes from Olive Oil PEG-7 Esters, a water-soluble form of olive oil that gently bonds to grime on your face and rinses cleanly away. Fortified with chamomile, aloe, and rice bran oil, it’s a soothing, purifying cleanser that won’t dry out your skin or leave a film.
Soft Touch AHA is a 10% mandelic acid gel that gently sloughs off dead skin cells to help reveal smoother, brighter, clearer skin. Mandelic acid is an alpha hydroxy acid, so it’s great at exfoliating, brightening, fading PIH, stimulating collagen production, and increasing cell turnover. The mandelic acid molecule is much larger than other AHAs, so it doesn’t penetrate the skin as deeply, meaning it’s much gentler and less likely to cause irritation. It also has unique antibacterial properties, so it’s an excellent acne-fighter.
I’m on a podcast!
The wonderful and brilliant women behind the podcast Balance Out the Bad: Mindfully Solving Modern Problems were kind enough to have me as a guest on their skincare episode. We talked about how skin works, the science behind skincare, evaluating your routines, hormonal acne, parabens, and more. You can listen to it here or on most major podcast apps!
