skin care guides

At Kari Gran, we believe that every woman, regardless of her age or skin type, deserves an honest, easy-to-maintain skin care routine that nourishes her skin effectively with naturally derived ingredients. We believe there’s more that unites us than divides us, yet the beauty industry has been playing to our differences for as long as anyone can remember; with a new product for every little worry and formulas that treat symptoms rather than providing the nourishment that skin truly needs. Kari Gran offers women a clean, honest alternative to skin care because we believe that Mother Nature knows best when it comes to the care and feeding of our skin. We believe that the best skin care products are made with pure, simple ingredients such as organic botanical oils.

In our skin care guides, we’ll explore healthy lifestyle choices, skin care trends, current noteworthy literature, popular wellness rituals, and much more. We are committed to helping women find an elegant skin care solution that adapts to the needs of real life and places value on health and hydration over youth and perfection.

THANKSGIVING – A FEAST FOR YOUR SKIN!

Thanksgiving is here, and with it comes with lots of gratitude and even more food than normal. And while we here at KG like to encourage healthful eating for best complexion results, Thanksgiving is one day we say throw caution to the wind. Do we want whip cream with that pumpkin pie? Oh yes, we do. However, the day should not be a total food guilt trip, so we went off in search of the silver lining. We found that many of the ingredients and foods we eat on Thanksgiving have powerful skin-loving properties, so chew on that as you...

JUNE IS SUN PROTECTION MONTH

JUNE IS SUN PROTECTION MONTH

This month our “a dozen little things” theme is sun protection, something that is close to my heart. In fact, I consider myself a first-hand expert on the topic. You see, I am a rare and delicate flower when it comes to sun sensitive skin. As fair as the new fallen snow the closest my skin has ever been to tan is following the itchy peeling stage of a nasty sunburn. That’s a lot to go through for a little color. Raised in the 60s and 70s before advanced research into skin cancer my parents instinctively knew that a t-shirt...
