The same could be said for…

Probiotics You Can Wear – Beauty Article

What I’m about to say probably goes against everything you’ve ever learned about how to care for your skin, but stick with me, I promise it’ll be worth it. You should be putting bacteria on your face. Before you freak, let me clarify. Yes, a lot of your most common, most annoying skin issues are caused by bacteria — acne, inflammation, etc. But these issue-causing bacteria are the “bad” kind and I’m talking about the “good” kind.

About That Face…Post-Makeout – Beauty Article

I like facial hair as much as anyone — but what I really don’t like is the way my face feels after making out with it… The start of autumn means we’re in what I like to call full-blown “Lumberjack Season.” If you want to get out there and chop some wood, by all means, but what I’m talking about is more of an aesthetic shift toward flannel shirts, knit caps, apple-picking Instagrams, cider donuts, warming spices, cozy blankets, etc.…

Clean Up Your Act – Beauty Article

I decided it was only fair to give baths a real shot, and let me be the first to admit I did not know what I was missing. Baths are the best.   Confession time: up until about a year ago, I hated baths.

Your Blackhead Survival Guide – Beauty Article

While I may always have a smattering of blackheads on my face, it’s far better to learn how to care for and deal with them in a smart way. While I’m the first to admit that there are few things in life more satisfying/gross than successfully squeezing something out of your skin, I’m also the first to admit that self-extractions aren’t a good idea.

Transitioning Your Skincare Routine from Summer to Fall – Beauty Article

Your skin can love autumn weather, too, and the transition from summer-to-fall doesn’t have to be as brutal as spring-to-summer. Summer is great for a lot of things: sweating, bug bites, sunburn, general lethargy. (Can you tell I’m not a big fan of the season?) But in all seriousness, one thing that can be great about summer is how your skin behaves. Sure, it may take a few weeks for your face to transition from the milder weather of spring…

I’m On the Collagen Train — Now What? – Beauty Article

Contrary to what current self-care trends would have you believe, collagen isn’t solely for the benefit of our appearances. What is collagen?
