✨ BLUE LIGHT 101 ✨ What is it and how can it damage your skin? ⠀
While UV rays have always been given the bad rep for premature skin ageing, research is showing that Blue Light (a.k.a. High-Energy Visible Light) is also a major culprit. It penetrates deeply into all layers of the skin and can induce oxidative stress, weaken the epidermal layer, cause hyper pigmentation & accelerate ageing. ⠀
The bad news? Blue Light sources are all around us, from our tech devices (hello, TVs, laptops and mobile phones!) as well as naturally from the sun.
The good news? Our NEW SPFs are here to #FightTheLight ✨🤛🏼 Offering daily nourishment plus UVA, UBV and Blue Light protection, these superstars help to protect skin from premature ageing by fighting both natural and artificial light sources. Head to the link in our bio to check them out!
DIVE INTO YOUR DREAM... Don’t mind if I do ✨ -
Thank you to @youthtothepeople for sending over the new and highly anticipated Dream Mask. I cannot wait to try this tonight 🌙
As light as a cloud but impressively moisturizing, this OO cream by @janescrivnerskincare is beyond divine.
I first head about Jane from @jordansamuelskin videos with her. She influenced a yr long obsession with Jojoba oil by picking it as one of her favorite ingredients.
I really wanted to do a video on this January @beautyheroes box but time and life have gotten in the way. For the record, it has become one of my top five favorite boxes they have ever done. .
Let me count the reasons why I love Jane Scrivner:
1. Good skin theory backing products
2. Excellent price point
3. Effective multi-functional products
4. Mostly organic without the preachy wellness message
5. Excellent formulations
Good skincare doesn’t need a huge price tag. It doesn’t need a thousand extracts promising you the moon. It just needs to have an understanding of skin structure and how to deliver realistic results. And it just so happens that Jane’s products happen to deliver my favorite kind of results: skin hydration! .
The BH box featured the OO cream and the Cleansing balm as well as two large fluffy mitts for skin cleansing! I had tried the OO cream in the past and at the time I had thought it wasn’t thick enough for me but now as my skin barrier has improved.. I have found it to be the most delectable skin treat. I have used the cleaning balm as a makeup remover but have actually been saving it for my hands as a moisturizer because it is so rich! .
Alright! Did you get this box? Are you loving it?
P.s BH sent me this box. They are the only box/brand I work with and I don’t use affiliate links. 😍
Ya girl is tired to the bone. So, in honor of exhaustion and all that it does to the brain and body (not to mention skin), let’s talk sleeping masks. 😴 🛏 💤 #laneigegiftedme
. I’m very excited about @laneige_us’ new LAVENDER Water Sleeping Mask* & their Original Water Sleeping Mask*. 💙 Both retail for only $25 and they come in huge 2.3oz jars! The OG water sleeping mask is what got me into sleeping masks in the first place. It’s bouncy, it’s lightweight, it’s mega hydrating, it layers beautifully, and it lasts for 6-8 hours.
. Laneige also happens to be one of the first lines that got me excited about skincare a decade ago. Their formulas are affordable, beautifully textured, perfect for restoring a damaged moisture barrier.
. Unlike Belif or Erno Laszlo’s sleeping masks which are more occlusive and perfect for dry skin, Laneige’s version is good for virtually any skin type! I actually adore all 3 formulas, and I use Belif’s and Erno Laszlo’s in the winter because my dry skin craves moisture. But at the end of the day, nothing can beat Laneige’s OG water sleeping mask for year-round skincare. It’s more affordable, more hydrating, and more breathable. Any skin type can get along with it.
. What’s the main difference between this NEW lavender sleeping mask and the original? In a nutshell, scent and scent alone. The ingredients are identical, the texture is identical, the efficacy is identical. The new launch just has a lavender scent (it smells like lavender absolute with lots of coumaric/vanilla notes. Not the herbal “old lady” lavender that so many people hate). It doesn’t contain any actual lavender - only the fragrance mimicking chemicals.
. All in all, I can’t thank @laneige enough for topping up my sleeping mask stash! I always come back to Laneige. It’s a marvelous line, with super unique textures, gorgeous essences, and dreamy sleeping masks...
. What is your favorite bedtime ritual? I apply a sleeping mask, fill my diffuser up with lavender, hinoki, & clary sage eo’s, and use my infrared mat. It’s the little rituals that keep us going in the dead of winter. #Laneigegiftedme@laneige_us@sephora#laneigeus#isleptwithlaneige#OctolyFamily
Korean ginseng (also called Panax ginseng) is known as "the king of herbs" for its potential to promote longetivity and vitality. Our powerhouse ingredient, Compound K, is derived from Korean ginseng to bring radiance and health to the skin.
Created in 2017 by Hye-C Pang when she noticed a lot of her products advertised as natural were actually just full of harmful chemicals with very small portions of 'star' natural ingredients.
@florishe_beauty believes in providing the best possible natural products and avoid any ingredients seemingly linked to internal health disruption or suspected to carry potential risks. You will notice that all of their ingredients have “green” and “safest” rating per Environmental Working Group’s
▪️They are cruelty free, free of synthetic fragrances, mineral oil, paraben, phthalate, petrolatum, sulfates, silicones, PEGs or synthetic colours.
I was the one who started to follow them. I love the kind of ingredients Kbeauty uses and this brand seemed luxurious to me!
And the clean white and gold packaging is simply gorgeous !
▪️▪️CAMELLIA FULL BLOSSOM SERUM
I was right. The texture of this serum feels so luxurious!
It is silky but rich at the same time, smells wonderful - herbal, and instantly leaves a nice healthy glow.
My skin feels hydrated, but not only on the surface, my skin feels deeply hydrated, nourished and rejuvenated.
I noticed Makeup is a charm to apply on my skin after.
I only need 1 pump to get this feeling.
Worth mention also is the quality of the glass bottle and pump mechanism.
Star ingredient : Camellia sinensis leaf water at 54.26%.
It is so much better when water is not the first ingredient but is replaced with some goodness who actually work for our skin.
In this case full of antioxidants green tea.
. Also present camellia flower seed oil and gotu kola to help skin gets plumped, firm and to soothe.
. Rich in Omega-6 and Omega-9 fatty acids, camellia flower seed oil moisturizes and provides silky skin with a natural glow .
Overall this is definitely a serum I would purchase myself.
It is expensive but the deep hydration & rejuvenation my skin gets is incredible.
I don’t remember experienced this deeply nourished feeling ever before!
I recommend this serum no doubt.
You can get this serum 35 mL+ 1 complimentary facial treatment mask for 80US$ * gifted

There's no better way to remove hair than with honey wax. It's a hot, soft wax that is applied with a one-time use spatula, and then removed with muslin. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Using a facial serum regularly can provide concentrated nutrition to your skin giving it a healthy boost of hydration and protection from environmental stressors, BUT did you know? Most mainstream facial serums and oils contain pore clogging mineral oils that have no added benefit to the skin and synthetic fragrances that are under little to no regulation, meaning that you could be delivering harmful compounds into the skin that outweigh the benefits of the concentrated nutrition you were aiming for!
In my stories later today I am showing you a few different serums to help your skin look and feel it’s best without all the added “junk” (and a chance to do some good with your purchase as well!) Check it out before it’s gone! 📸: @beautycounter

For those that use Cetaphil cleanser please read this important info! Repost from @beverlyhillsskincaremuse - I could not agree more with @the.master.esthetician on this #bullshit excuse for a #cleanser 🤭 Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser contains just eight ingredients: water, cetyl alcohol, propylene glycol, sodium lauryl sulfate, stearyl alcohol, methylparaben, propylparaben, butylparaben
All but the water are chemically manufactured (let’s hope), and propylene glycol, sodium lauryl sulfate, and the three parabens have a seat on the dirty dozen, a list of cosmetic ingredients to avoid as potentially toxic. 🤢🤢🤢🤢🤢🤢🤢🤢🤢🤢🤢🤢
Whether you think it’s keeping your skin healthy or not, it is absorbed into your bloodstream and research has proven almost all of the few ingredients in it are carcinogenic. I know it’s hard to imagine that washing your face can give you cancer but it’s worth consideration.
Julia March, a top NYC facialist, says that so many New Yorkers believe that Cetaphil is healthy, they tend ignore the ingredients completely. “Cetyl alcohol, an emollient used in many cosmetics, is essentially a wax,” says March. “Propylene glycol is a common humectant (meaning it brings moisture from the air to the skin), but it also enhances product and chemical penetration into the skin and blood stream. Sodium lauryl sulfate is a foaming agent, and skin and eye irritant, that disturbs the healthy lipid barrier of the skin, and parabens are a group of preservatives being phased out for potential health risks.
Given that there’s actually nothing clean about this cleanser, it’s rather amazing that millions of women think their skin will freak out if they use anything else. “It may not irritate skin very much, but it probably won’t help it much either.
That’s because there’s nothing in Cetaphil that nurtures skin. No antioxidants that help fight free radical damage; not a dribble of omega-rich plant seed oils that fortify the skin barrier; and not a drop of skin-calming botanicals. () #skincare#cleanskincare#cetaphil#skincrap

Savarnas Mantra Natural Youth Stem Serum. The fascinating thing about stem cells is their regeneration ability. Stem cells are the natural architects of reparation. Found in all multicellular organisms, they can self replicate and differentiate into diverse specialized cell types in order to propagate the growth of an existing cell type. When applied to the skin, they result in wrinkle reduction, collagen proliferation and skin rejuvenation. Recognizing the preservative value was the first step towards unlocking this ingredient’s true potential. After further study, it was observed that the tree displayed remarkably fast regeneration and healing abilities. The long lasting lifespan and quick regeneration is credited towards the stem cells, which carry the provision for such qualities within the cells genetic structure. Scientists were able to cultivate the stem cells which are now available as a patented liposomal preparation called Phytocelltec Malus Domestica. This preparation incites preservation and regenerative properties in human skin stem cells. Human skin stem cells (epithelial stem cells) replenish and maintain the natural balance of cells within the epidermis layer of the skin. They also regenerate tissue damaged from injury or exposure. Unfortunately with age, the number of these stem cells decreases and they slow their ability to divide and repair. This is due to a process called senesance. Senesance is the biological slowing down of cellular division as dictated by stem cells and genetic instruction. It is a sort of biological clock and a natural component of aging.

Just saying ... ❗️❗️ I feel like I had a huge eye opener . Chemical this chemical that and we wonder where cancer comes from. These harmful chemicals are in everything . Even the air we breath isn’t clean. I feel like it’s my job to defend myself cause no one else is going to do that. Company’s don’t care if they make you sick or put toxins in you. It’s about profit for them. Well I care about my body. You know that feeling when you do something wrong. I get that when I use products that aren’t healthy. I’m more then happy to help others learn about these products . All these labels mean something to me , how about you ? #arbonne#nutrition#healthylifestyle#healthy#vegan#glutenfree#nongmo#crueltyfree#instablogger#cleaneating#cleanskincare
Finally. After 2 years in the making we have launched Counterman. Did you know that there is no leader in the clean products industry for men? That their skin is created differently! It’s tougher, thicker, more prone to sebum buildup which means oily, breakouts, and in grown hairs. Now we have a solution. No fuss, just performance. We use sequoia stem cells which helps protect skin from every day stress. Great smelling, great performance. Time to clean up HIS side of the sink. Link in bio.
To prevent unwanted break outs, it helps to know some common causes, which are:
humidity, stress, unhealthy diet and heavy sweating.
To help: wash your face after any activities that may cause heavy sweating. Also, avoid over using products that are known for drying out the skin (stripping it), as that can lead to irritation and an overproduction of oil (which can trap bacteria in the pores of the skin, causing the small bumps to become inflamed). It tricks the skin into thinking you’re not creating enough, and before you know it, your skin’s producing more than it can handle. ⚠️(EX: alcohol, witch hazel, etc).⚠️ **(Oh! And....)A plain old bar of soap is not going to be the solution for great skin!!!** ❗️**if acne is serious, I always recommend seeing a primary care physician or dermatologist.**❗️
