Anti-aging laser therapy

When I think of lasers, I think of Jamiroquai. If the lasers and Jamiroquai connection isn’t obvious, then you might need to fire up your Apple music or your Spotify and get to listening to “Feels Just Like It Should”. That oldie, but goodie, should satisfy your need for some kind of...

How to fix scars perfectly

Blinded by Stem Cells

Dirty Love – the power of charcoal   Since I got so involved with Korean skincare I have come across a pretty great black sheet face mask. Apart from dripping black-tinted liquid all over the sink and myself, I got quite taken with the unusual color and...

Jeunesse Instantly Ageless VS Botox

I know, I know, I am on the old Jeunesse Instantly Ageless bandwagon again but please someone, anyone, tell me why people don’t bother to research what they put on their faces / in their bodies? I’ve watched a lot of Jeunesse reviews on YouTube and of...

The top three acids to fight wrinkles, sun damage, dry skin and even acne I touched upon acids in my previous post about how I’m dealing with rosacea. And since I found that certain type of acids were more effective than any other product or ingredient in...

How to Treat Rosacea, Part II

Here’s the second part of my ‘How To Treat Rosacea’ series. It’s been a long road for me, and I’d like to summarize all that I’ve learned and experienced. In part 1 I covered cleansing and exfoliation – both super important when dealing with rosacea, and yet...

Does Jeunesse Instantly Ageless Work?

Further to the pH testing I do on questionable skin care products, I’ve asked a dermatology professional to help me get strictly fact based information about skincare products. Because I’m kind of obsessed with pH, considering it is so important in so many ways but especially with regard to our skin, I asked Dr Maryam...

6 Things You Can Do For Younger Skin

The most cruel of mashups, we often see the words “graceful” and “old” used together but can we truly age gracefully? Sagging, balding, fine lines, wrinkles, and age spots…you name it. As you cruise over the hill, it all happens. I say Audrey Hepburn got it wrong when she said:...
