FIVE SIMPLE WAYS TO KEEP SKIN FLAWLESS (NO PURCHASE NECESSARY)

We’re not afraid to admit it: skin care products will only get your skin so far. It doesn’t matter what fancy stuff you’re putting on if you’re gobbling down chocolate bars, cramming in sleep and making frequent trips to the wine cellar (don’t get us wrong, if we could do those things and still have flawless looking skin, we’d be All Over It). For skin to look its best the approach has to be holistic.

Is it hard to use mineral makeup? Nope! It may take a little getting used to, but mineral makeup is simply and easy. You do not need longer than five minutes for a flawless face that has staying power for days.

FROM THE INBOX: CLEANSING OIL METHOD QUESTIONS

We love getting emails from our clients, usually because they’re writing to tell us how much they love us (blush!). But sometimes there are burning beauty questions among the love notes. Today we shed light on questions about our Cleansing Oil – using oil to cleanse the face may seem counterintuitive, but trust us, you’ll never go back. 1.

The beauty industry would have you believe that washing your face with facial cleanser is a necessity. It promotes the idea that the only way to remove the residue left by makeup, air pollution, sweat, and oil is by using chemical-laden cleansers to strip it all off.
