What's the Difference Between Dry and Dehydrated Skin?

What's the Difference Between Dry and Dehydrated Skin?

 Picture this gentle people: you find yourself standing on a tropical beach, sipping on a refreshing Mango Daiquiri, the wind blowing through your hair. You have been standing on the sand for quite some time now that you start to feel that tight and uncomfortable feeling underneath your once smooth tootsies (aka groovy term for feet). Or perhaps you have been standing in the sun – with sunscreen on of course and you start to notice that your skin is looking a bit dull and sallow, so you have a quick dip in the ocean for that needed bit of...

LGBTQIA+ Books you need to put on your reading list

LGBTQIA+ Books you need to put on your reading list

I have, a guilty confession. I am a book hoarder.

What Are Pimple Patches + How Do They Work?

What Are Pimple Patches + How Do They Work?

They’re little stickers you stick on your pimple to stop them being pimple’y. We use patches, not creams, for a few good reasons: 🙏 A patch stops curious fingers from scratching, poking, and popping, which can make pimples WAY worse. 🙏It prevents external disruptors, like debris, excess oil, and dead skin cells that can inflame and contaminate the infection. 🙏It’s a discreet cover up - and a much healthier, cleaner alternative to layering on cover-up. 🙏It absorbs moisture from your pimple, drawing gunk out of your skin and into the patch.
