Light therapy has gone mainstream, but are LED face masks really worth that hefty price tag? These masks are one of those devices that made the transition from "only for salons" to "available at home". Nowadays, you can see them included in almost every influencer’s skincare routine. They emit red and near-infrared lights for targeted multi-faceted skin care, allegedly treating many different skin concerns at once.
New Year's resolutions may seem corny to a lot of people. However, why cringe over something that has the potential to motivate us to do better? Even if it's just for a couple of weeks. I try to be realistic when it comes to my New Year's resolutions, so I never include things like "go to the gym 5 times a week" or "cook all meals at home". That makes it just so easy for me to mess up and lose that initial spark that kept me going. But I try to make small steps each year that can help me take better care of my body and soul.
I have to admit it — I spend way too much time scrolling through TikTok. Especially considering that I’m nowhere close to being a Gen-Z member. It’s a great way to distract myself when I feel the need to, and I also learn a lot about what’s trending at the moment. But there is one interesting thing that I have noticed — TikTok trends and skincare shouldn’t be mixed. The risks are much higher than the potential benefits.
I’m all about aging gracefully. However, who says that you can’t age gracefully even with a little bit of botox? It’s 2023, and a little bit of good old Botulinum Toxin can go a very long way. And the rare celebrities that have been refreshingly open about getting botox are the best proof of that.
Would it be a surprise for you to hear that Milly Bobby Brown is obsessed with skincare? Probably not. Especially considering that the actress came out with her own skincare brand, Florence by Mills, a couple of years ago.
Azelaic acid probably isn't the first or even second thing that comes to mind when you think of trending skin care ingredients. Who are we kidding? Most of us don't know that it's a part of skincare. Even I, as a self proclaimed skincare fanatic, haven’t been looking too much into this ingredient. Sure, I have heard some great reviews about Ordinary’s Azelaic Acid 10% suspension. However, it never intrigued me enough to spend the money on it.
I switch up my skincare routine for every season. I know that this makes me slightly low-maintenance, and some would even say that it’s absolutely unnecessary. However, I would have to disagree.
I have to admit something slightly embarrassing. I’m obsessed with finding out what the skincare routines of different celebrities look like. I just can’t help it! It’s so interesting to get an idea about what they use on their faces in their free time, and if they actually have some knowledge about skin and skincare.
If there is one positive thing that 2022 has brought us then it’s the internet presence of Julia Fox. I have never seen a celebrity redeem themselves on social media as successfully as Fox.
