New Week, New Me DIY Facial

Before the new week begins, aka Monday, I have to find a way to make myself "anew" before I see those same faces. For those of you whose workspaces that are as toxic as my own, you know exactly what I mean. All the gossip, hate and ego makes my skin dull and my energy low bearing fruit to pettiness. That’s why I have to stick with my rituals of a weekly facial before the week begins. Below is one of my favorite recipes for a facial that gets my skin back to a glow everytime! It must be said...

Simple SZN: What I Learned from a Summer BreakOut

I was using products with organic ingredients with plant extracts, amazing oils and doing my skincare routine in the morning and (most) nights. I drew the...

Summer Time Fine: Tips to Secure the Glow Summer 2018

It’s sundress and melanin season. Today is the first day of summer and while there’s a lot to celebrate, we’d be naive to not also acknowledge how powerful and potentially damaging the sun is to our skin and hair. The sun is a strong force. As far away as it is, we can still feel its’ heat. Let that sink in for a minute! That said, there are key things we can do to glow, not burn. It’s about realizing how fragile our skin really is so that we can be diligent enough to take good care. Below are some...
