While everyone should be sun-conscious year round, the sun is much stronger during the summer months, making us more susceptible to its harmful effects. People with paler skin know the woes of the sun much more than those with darker pigment, because they lack the protection of melanin. But do you know what actually happens when you get a sunburn? Read on to find out what’s happening when you fry, what it means for your skin, and some unlikely cures to these painful burns.

When it comes to your skin, we can’t stress the importance of a healthy diet. While some things like acne are primarily the result of genetics and hormones, skin problems on the outside can be a huge indicator of poor internal health. Usually when we have a skin problems like oil control, breakouts, and wrinkles, we immediately turn to products. And with all the products available, we’re sure to find one to cure our woes, aren’t we? Maybe, but we’re not fixing the problem. If anything we’re making it worse by covering it up without getting to the root of the problem. Instead, take your skin concern, and look inside first. Sometimes, the answer is as easy as eating more spinach or drinking more tea.

What are stretch marks? What causes them, and how can we get rid of them?

Stretch marks are formed when the dermis is stretched, and cannot ‘bounce back’. The dermis is the middle layer of skin, and the one that’s responsible for supporting the epidermis (outer layer). When the dermis is stretched to the point of tearing, stretch marks form as a sort of scar.

If you suffer from puffy or discoloured undereyes, you’re definitely not alone. This sometimes troublesome and unsightly condition can be caused by many factors, and finding out the main cause of your "raccoon eyes" is the first step to solving it. And yes, there are solutions!

The skin underneath your eye is extremely thin, so the mechanisms going on beneath the surface are very visible. As we age this skin thins even more, and the dark veins and pigment beneath can look like they’re on the surface. Diet, age, and genetics are just some of the factors that can influence the appearance of your undereyes. Finding out what’s causing the problem is the first step to finding the solution.

Almost every teen battles with acne (around 95%), but did you know about 25% of adults struggle to control their breakouts?

Fillers VS. Botox®

Facebook Google + Twitter Pinterest

There are many misconceptions about cosmetic injectables floating around. Some people say they want fillers instead of Botox® because they’re “stronger”, or that they want Botox® in their lips instead of fillers because Botox® has been around longer and is safer. Some people claim that they’re the same thing, and they can be used interchangeably with each other.

So, we're laying it out clear!
