    It’s week 2 of DIY Skin Care Month and today I’m talking cleansing.  It’s the first step in any good skincare regime (cleanse, tone, moisturize).  At first it can sound so basic — my face is dirty, I will wash it — but it gets a little more complicated than that.  What if you also need to remove makeup? What if you have acne, or dry skin or oily skin or just went for a run and there’s sweat pouring down your f…

    I have received hundreds of questions about my skin and its tone. I was surprised to find how many women are baffled as to how to care for their own skin and how many of them believe it costs lots of money to be and feel beautiful! Introducing exfoliating gloves… I have been using these gloves everyday at shower or bath time for the past decade or so.

    …out to me too, shouting DECLINED every time I so much as thought of putting one of their lovely face creams or cleansers into my cart. Is Dr. Hauschka actually that expensive? No, of course not. But it is when you’re a 21-year-old college student whose idea of an extravagant meal was REAL Kraft macaroni & cheese instead of Target’s Market Pantry brand. Now that I’m a bit more grown up and can actually manage my money, IR…

    By JC Coccoli It was at the beginning of summer, 1929, when Annabell’s family (“The Masons,” as they were referred to by the locals), came here to escape the sounds of the bustling city.  They’d been driving out this way for years now, for the peace and quiet; it was the kind of quiet that was enough to drive the crickets mad, really, but this is exactly why they liked it– or so were the rumors. A ginger boy, branded with the palest skin, green…

    …pplications. Creating the mask is super simple – add a teaspoon (or a little more) of water to a teaspoon of the powder and mix into a paste.
