Does your skin get dry in the winter? Of course it does. It’s winter. Try living out here in the Arizona desert. After Christmas we Phoenicians look less like goddesses and more like a vintage handbag. Seriously– after a full winter of this dryness, my face feels rougher than a Piers Morgan interview with Tonya Harding. (zzzzing!)

Even if you don’t live in drier climates, winter has some surprising negative effects on skin. Our skin starts to feel the
effects of cold weather when temperatures
drop below 53.6 degrees Fahrenheit. And perhaps most surprisingly, central heating can reduce air humidity levels to the same moisture content as the Sahara Desert (that’s a relative humidity of just 20-25%). So the problem isn’t necessarily the cold weather, but what we have to do to deal with it.  Continue reading “Whip Your Skin Into Shape in 2018! @Olay #ad @Albertsons #winterskinproblems #feelthewhip”

Real talk: everyone looks better with a tan. @sunnygirlspraytanphx #Phoenix

If we’re being  honest, literally everyone looks better with a tan. Of course, there are boundaries where tasteful tan ends and Oompa Loompa begins. How to find the sweet spot without getting sun spots?

The answer lies in spray – but the right spray. Not all spray tans are created equal. Popular machine sprays can’t see your body, resulting in splotchy bits and odd coloration. And sometimes the pigment isn’t as natural looking, so unless you’re going for Carrot Top, it might not look too chic.
