How to care for your face when wearing a mask during COVID-19

Times are surely interesting during the COVID-19 pandemic. First off, I'd like to thank ALL essential workers and first responders. My sincerest thank you to the janitor to the warehouse fulfillment people to grocery store workers to the trash person to the doctors and nurses. You all are my hero and make me SO PROUD [...]

What I learned in one year of weight loss, and the one thing you’re likely forgetting

What I learned in one year of weight loss, and the one thing you’re likely forgetting

Ahhhh weight. Everyone's always talking about it. Losing it, gaining it, shredding it, blasting it...it goes on and on. A little over a year ago I decided to make a change. While I was never overweight, I was an unhealthy version of myself. I subscribed to Dave Matthew's Band's mantra of his song "Too Much." [...]

I Tried It: The Photofractional Facial

Happy new year, Readhead readers! Today I'd like to talk about one of the topics I get asked about most frequently - hyperpigmentation and lasers. First, let's get a few basic vocabulary terms out of the way that will make this review easier to understand: Epidermis: made of up five layers of skin (although there [...]

Product Review: Nars Natural Radiant Longwear Foundation

On the day-to-day I am a minimal makeup kind of gal. More because my skin is like a 3 year old toddler waiting to have a tantrum so when it's sleeping (acting like an angel) I will do whatever I can to not wake the beast. However, when I have a glam party or something [...]

Product Review: The Ordinary 30% AHA + 2% BHA Peeling Solution

BOO! Nope, it's not your friend's gory Halloween makeup, it's The Ordinary's 30% AHA + 2% BHA peeling solution! I posted a picture of myself on Facebook and immediately got questions on PRP (or the vampire facial), getting into a fight with a cheese grater, a chimney sweep and my favorite - my husband proclaiming [...]

Product Review: Dr. Jart Dermaclear Trans-foam Clay Trio

As someone who loves Korean skincare, I'm definitely a Dr. Jart fan.  My love with the brand started when my skin went haywire and still needed protection, so I tried the Dr. Jart Premium Beauty Balm.  With all the options in my arsenal, this is the one I still use today. Pretty impressive coming from [...]

Product Review: Jergens Wet Skin Body Moisturizer

Does this describe you? Hate the effort of putting on lotion but loathe dry skin? Easily get cold when getting out of the shower so you rush to the finish line sans adding back needed moisture? Use lotion but just never feel like you have enough moisture afterwards? Although embarrassed by your snaky scaly self, [...]
