Tis the season for bare skin and a beautiful bronze glow!

How to Clean Your Makeup Brush – Fast & Easy

Cleaning our makeup brushes is something we often don’t think to do. Makeup brushes do a brilliant job disguising all the grime and grease from previous use that has inevitably built up within the bristles. The fact is, each time we use our makeup brush, it eagerly picks up dead skin cells, sebaceous oil, dirt, and sweat that gets buffed into our skin with each new application. Without this realization, we discontentedly look into the mirror and wonder why our…

Sunscreen: The Paradoxical Pore-Shrinker

It’s safe to say that just about everyone detests large pores. No man or woman ever looked into a mirror and said, Geeze, if only my pores were a little bigger, that would be pretty awesome. So we try cleansers and scrubs and treatments that promise to fix this ceaseless issue, until we resolve in great defeat that big pores just come with older age, or that we were genetically predisposed to them. Although scrubs and treatments can offer temporary help,…
