Does Drinking Milk Really Cause Acne?

22/01/2022

My milk preferences change with my mood. I opt for oat milk when I’m feeling fancy or almond if I want to cut back on sugar—though true to my midwestern roots, I still love taking my coffee with good, old-fashioned dairy milk. But late last month, I noticed something strange happening to my skin when I switched back to skim milk from oat: my nose and the skin around it was suddenly and inexplicably beet-red.

With the vast array of beauty products available to us now, it’s easy to forget that sometimes the simplest approach is the most effective – particularly when it comes to skincare. If you’re concerned that product-layering might be causing your skin more harm than good, you might be right.

AT-HOME REMEDIES to Help Prevent Your Neck from Aging

03/01/2022

Hands, knees, chest … and neck are all sneaky areas of the body where aging can be a dead giveaway. The delicate skin reflects the wonderful life you’ve lived, including relaxing time in the sun, the hard work you’ve accomplished with your hands, and time you’ve spent on your phone bonding with friends and family from afar (downside: tech neck). These are all things to be grateful for—you’ve earned the beauty lines (consider them memories). That said, there are at-home ways to prevent…

6 Simple Ways To Lift & Firm The Neck

23/12/2021

You only have to glance at Bridgerton’s elegant Regency ladies (or Rosie Huntington-Whiteley) to know that the neck is an unheralded erogenous zone. A surprisingly delicate area, the skin here is inclined to age faster than its facial counterpart, but is often neglected.

Clean beauty has come a long way. Just a few years ago, the hunt for a simpler ingredient list usually ended with sacrificing efficacy and skin-transforming results. But we’ve now entered an entirely new age, one where it’s not just good enough to be a clean product—it has to be a clean product that performs.
