Ingredients To Avoid When You’ve Sensitized/Over Stripped/Over Exfoliated Your Skin

Your skin is red, inflamed and itchy. It feels sensitive and thin. What the heck happened?! You think back and recall a strong facial, followed by some at-home products with acids and maybe a Clarisonic brush, and then it hits you – oh shit, I’ve over exfoliated my skin. Trust me, I’ve been there too and it’s not fun. This is a common occurrence for many. I can’t even begin to tell you how many DM convos I’ve had on IG discussing with others the struggles of over exfoliated, sensitized skin. But sometimes it happens solely from using at-home products.

Juice Beauty Green Apple – Brightening Line – Review

If you’re a fan of green beauty, then you know about Juice Beauty. They were one of the first green beauty brands launching in 2005 back wayyyyyy before it was trendy to be green.

How I Cleared Up My Pregnancy Acne

After years of struggling to get pregnant (read about my pregnancy story here), it finally happened. My at-home pregnancy test read positive! I jumped for joy when I read that plastic little stick. Standing in my bathroom staring at that stick is a moment I’ll never forget and one that seems so long ago now that I’m in the middle of my second trimester. (Due May 2018 with a girl!) I can honestly say becoming pregnant has been the best thing to ever happen to my life, and simultaneously the worst thing to ever happen to my skin. Okay, FINE, I exaggerate;…
