After sitting in celebrity hair stylist, Kristen Shaw’s, chair at her newly launched Venice salon, Cabin, I walked out with the best.haircut.of.my.life. Hyperbole? Absolutely, not. This hair cut deserves excessive praise.

The wellness brand currently has twenty juices/elixirs/milks available with rotating seasonal additions. While the juices seem on par with other juiceries, like Pressed Juicery, their milks and tonics,…

The best thing to do if you’re dealing with any kind of inflammatory skin issue is to avoid makeup. Makeup can cause irritation, it can prevent your skin from healing, no matter how “clean” it is, and clog pores. That being said, going makeup-free can be very difficult for some – myself included. I try to go makeup-free as much as I can, but on days I have a work meeting or social engagement, I will wear makeup. Below is a list of face and lip makeup that I have found to be safe for me and the best makeup for perioral…
