Does using an oil to remove excess oil and debris from your face sound strange? That’s understandable. Far from a traditional foamy face wash, which use harsh detergents to cleanse the skin, cleansing facial oils are formulated with nourishing oils to melt away makeup, debris, excess sebum, and pollution left behind from the day. Don’t get us wrong—there’s nothing like a deep, sudsy cleanse every now and then. That being said, using a cleanser that strips too much sebum day after day will throw off your skin’s hydration—and interestly, can even lead to overproduction of oil.

Since before I can remember, hyperpigmentation has controlled too much of my self-esteem; I've got a big, dark line smack in the middle of my forehead, odd marks on my face from sun exposure, and dramatic scarring from the smallest of nicks. As a Master Esthetician, there is guilt associated with each of these marks: could I have prevented them? Should I have tried harder to treat them before this point?
2020, what a year it has been. Flashback to a mere few months ago: many of us didn't even know where we would be able to get a hold of a quality machine-washable mask. Fortunately, most of us have access to masks now that society is opening back up (A HUGE thanks to our boss babe who rallied to get masks for us at our flagship boutique and salon). With this new introduction of mask usage comes its own brand of irritants: mascne, for instance. We're already stressed enough...a breakout is the last thing we want to worry about!
