My skincare routine for combating dehydrated + dry skin while traveling

Packing skincare for a long trip can be overwhelming. For me, it’s the hardest part. I tend to overpack in these situations for fear of being without the right oil, cream or cleanser to combat dryness and dehydration; the two states my skin oscillates between while traveling due to poor eating, disrupted sleep, weather changes, arid planes etc. And there is nothing worse than a skin reaction or breakout while on vacation and not having the right skincare – am I right, ladies?!

These next two products that I’ve been testing from the intoxicating green brand In Fiore really straddle the line between cosmetic and medicinal – leaning more towards the latter in my opinion.

Q&A with True Moringa co-founder, Emily Cunningham, on improving Ghana’s economy with Moringa …

When I first heard the story of skincare brand, True Moringa, I was blown away! What the two founders have created is truly inspiring. Kwami Williams, a former aerospace engineer (yes, becoming a rocket scientist was his initial aspiration), and Emily Cunningham, a Harvard economics graduate, are proving with True Moringa that a beauty product can be efficacious, eco-friendly, and nontoxic while uplifting poverty stricken communities. Now that’s beautiful. The two met during their undergraduate studies on a trip to rural Ghana with MIT’s D-Lab program where they were challenged to develop a practical solution to the area’s poverty challenges. The…

True Moringa Oil, Face Soap and Body Butter Review

You heard it here first: Moringa is going to be THE NEXT BIG superfood/skin care ingredient! The nutritional content of the leaves is astounding – gram for gram they contain more protein than eggs, more calcium than milk, and more iron than spinach. And the oil extracted from the moringa seeds, contain unique plant hormones that stimulate cell growth, delay the aging of skin cells,  and has shown to help with scars and stretch marks! Say, what?! Yes, I was blown away, too.  Let’s just say I’ve been loading up on the fresh leaves at my local farmers’ market and…
