Like it or not, beauty is often determined by the health of your skin since it’s what we see first. The good news is that if you feel self-conscious about your skin, it can usually be fixed.

How do you know which products to buy to keep your skin looking healthy and glowing? Are more expensive choices really better? Did you know you could be causing damage to your skin by using the wrong skincare products? I know, it’s all very confusing.
Did you know that the soap you use to wash your body is too harsh for the sensitive skin on your face? Please put down that bar of soap and trade it in for something better. Unlike “combination” and “oily” skin types, “dry” isn’t a type of skin. It’s actually caused by external factors like the weather, hot baths and, you guessed it, harsh ingredients.
Does your face feel tight after you wash it? That means your cleanser is too harsh. After cleansing, your skin should feel like it always does. Cleansers with harsh, chemical ingredients completely strip the skin of its natural moisturizers.
