And hopefully, the discomfort you’re dealing with will serve as a nice reminder for next time to never forget your Daily Defense Moisturizer.  But, in the meantime, there’s no reason to drive yourself crazy waiting for the sting to subside and your skin to inevitably start peeling. Read on for our tips to keep redness at bay! What is a sunburn anyway? Simply put, it’s the skin’s response … Continue reading

New Year, Even Better You!

The holidays are over and while the temperatures continue to drop, ‘tis the season for altering your skin care routine! This year, we’re practicing #selfcare by giving your skin a BeautyWorkout™.
