There Goes the Sun

Post sun repair Labor Day has come and gone, which means that summer is *technically* over. Now, I’m all about extending summer as long as possible, wearing white all year round, pretending the amount of daylight is still getting longer even when it’s dark before dinnertime, and basically ignoring all the “rules,” but eventually, we […]

How to Sunscreen

By now, anyone who has read this blog– or, truly, ANY blog, ever!, probably? — knows that you should be wearing sunscreen. On your face, especially. Every day. Even when it’s cloudy.  But during the summer, we tend to think about our sunscreen even more. We spend more time outside, we go to places like […]

Get Your Fix With de Mamiel

In the sea of clean, holistic-minded beauty brands, what makes one stand out? When it comes to de Mamiel, that special “x-factor” for me has always been the way founder Annee de Mamiel has managed to create formulas that feel at once bespoke and universally relevant, whether it’s her Altitude Oil or the Sleep Series, […]

Interview with RUA’s Kristina Dunn

I have long idealized Scandinavian culture for a myriad of reasons: the universal healthcare, high reports of happiness among residents, great educational systems, hygge… I could go on and on! But I had never thought or heard much about Scandinavian or Nordic skincare. That all changed when Integrity Botanicals recently brought Scandinavian brand RUA Nordic […]

Give Yourself a Hand!

I’m willing to bet that your hands and nails need (nay, deserve!) some extra love and care right now. Think about it; in addition to washing them eight thousand times a day (okay, I know, that’s an exaggeration, but … you do wash your hands a lot, right? Okay, good.) you use them a ton, […]

Do you need new beauty products? (Yes!)

You know that friend you have, the one you can always call when you want to be told “no,” or to be talked out of doing something? I am not that friend. I’m never going to talk you out of getting a new beauty product (unless, of course, it has toxic-laden ingredients or is covered […]
