We all want to live a healthy lifestyle, so when we hear about vitamins and supplements that could have multiple benefits, it piques our interest. Although probiotics have been around for a while, they’ve been in the spotlight lately. In 2015 alone, the probiotics market size was over $34 billion. You may have heard about probiotics’ gut-balancing properties, but did you know that they can be used externally?  We’re finding out more and more about the benefits of probiotics when they’re applied topically to the skin. Beauty companies have taken notice and have incorporated them into their skincare formulas. Keep on reading to find out what makes probiotics stand out from the crowd! What are Probiotics? Probiotics are good-for-you bacteria that live in your

You know that frustrating experience of trying to squeeze a blackhead right on the tip of your nose, but no matter what you do, you can’t get the gunk out? It’s the worst! We all know we shouldn’t be hard on our skin, but it’s hard to resist. Some days you look in the mirror and this big black mark just seems to be staring back at you. The problem, and the reason for the maddening lack of results, most likely, is that it’s not a blackhead at all. Knowing how to spot a true blackhead, what really causes it, and the big difference between blackheads and what dermatologists call sebaceous filaments can save you a lot of struggle. The goal

Skincare trends may come and go, but face masks have remained a favorite for quite some time. After all, what’s not to love about pampering your way to better skin? Not to mention, creating that professional spa experience in the comfort of our own home isn’t so bad either. Whether we’re dealing with stressed-out skin or pesky breakouts, face masks have become a go-to resource for tackling the worst of our skincare struggles. With a wide variety of face masks out there, we’re able to carefully choose the types that tailor to our specific needs. While browsing the skincare aisle or reading up on recommendations, you may have noticed a particular surge in popularity of peel-off masks! So what’s the deal – or

Times of transition can be frightening but exhilarating. Like when you start a family, or a relationship ends, or you begin a business, or your work takes you to a new place – a bittersweet goodbye to the old and then an exciting new start. Menopause is one of those transitions – the end of one phase, but the beginning of something bold and new, too. More and more, the older women in my life who are a few steps ahead on the path inspire me. And every day, strong women in the public eye prove that each new stage of life brings new possibilities. The average age for the onset of menopause is 51. Remember my philosophy on aging – we just keep

Skincare treatments are constantly evolving, and we’re always looking to explore the latest and the greatest trends. As an added bonus, some of these treatments extend beyond the skincare factor and tap into our emotional health. They can help reduce stress and promote relaxation, contributing to our overall well-being. Top-notch skin and a better mood? We’ll take it! Needless to say, this treatment is clearly making its rounds! Salt therapy is one of these lovely dual-effect treatments, and it’s certainly having its shining moment in the skincare world. If you haven’t tried it yet, you will likely have some pressing questions. After all, before jumping headfirst into a new skin treatment, it’s always wise to do your homework! So don’t worry, lovelies – I’m here

Most of us aim to stay up-to-date with the latest and greatest trends in skincare, but sometimes it can be difficult to keep up. Once you hear the buzz about a new product, there are a variety of factors to consider. What are the actual benefits? How do I know what’s fact or fiction? And most importantly: Is it truly right for me? So let’s dive right in and talk about two of the latest hot topics in skincare: the wonderful world of apple cider vinegar and kombucha. We’ll start by tackling the basics — what exactly these products are, where they originated, and how they are made. Next, we’ll get into the stuff you’re really looking for: the variety

Acne is the most common skin condition in Australia. (and the most Googled). I just want to start off by saying that I know just how frustrating recurring breakouts can be, and you’re not alone. But this doesn’t make it any easier. The AAD says that acne can not only cause permanent scarring, but can also lead to poor self-image, depression, and anxiety. Seeing images of other people with clear skin doesn’t feel too great. And finding a solution that works for your skin can be like an endless pursuit of trying this medicine and these pills. But what if the root cause of pimples is more than just surface-level? Today, I’m going to go in-depth about one method of finding the source of your breakouts: face

I remember the first time I was stung by a bee. It wasn’t fun. So would you believe me if I told you that people are getting stung on purpose? And, did you know that companies are adding bee venom to their skincare products? This ingredient is trending for its reported skin and health benefits. Bees have their place in nature – do they really bee-long on our skin? (I’m actually very excited to write this blog because of all the opportunities for puns.) Is using honeybee venom a safe practice? Does it actually yield benefits? Keep on reading to find out what all the buzz is about! The Buzz on Bees Honeybees aren’t native to North America; they were brought here by European settlers in the

Sometimes the skin can do unexpected things, right? As if we don’t have enough to deal with in our modern lives, these surprise, quirky little “skin issues” can pop up demanding our attention. Kind of like UFO’s, I think of these as USO’s – Unidentified Skin Objects. In case you’re dealing with skin tags, moles, or birthmarks and finding them harder to ignore lately, I feel you! And I want you to know that’s sort of a good thing. Why? Because research is showing how critical it is to detect skin cancer early by monitoring your skin for any changes or any new USO’s that pop up. Know the marks and moles on your body, and watch for changes, beauties. Ultimately, I find

Winter weather is in full swing! For most of us, this means trying to stay warm and cozy while battling dry skin. But, for others, this time of year brings the additional challenge of combating flair ups of eczema, psoriasis, and rosacea. And if you think these skin conditions get worse in the winter, no, you’re not crazy. These conditions CAN actually worsen when the temperature drops! A study published in Australian Skin Journal looked at 5,468 psoriasis patients and 9,301 acne patients and found that most office visits took place during colder weather. Don’t worry, Beauty Mates! I’m here to guide you through all your winter skincare woes and help you with some of my top tips for treating eczema, psoriasis, and
