Top 5 Cleansing Oils For Every Skin Type

If you’re not cleansing with oil, you should seriously reconsider your face cleaning game.   Foaming cleansers filled with sulfates can strip your skin of natural moisture, causing that overly clean and tight feeling.   While you may be used to this sensation – and even enjoy it (especially after an extra sweaty workout!) – it actually causes more harm than good.   Turns out that while you want to remove excess oil from your face, you certainly don’t want to remove every last drop as a result of a harsh detergent.

Prom Night… Ella & Gabe

Ella’s boyfriend Gabe Le Neveu joined us in the studio and also played DJ with a brilliant selection of 80’s/90’s music. They showed up with matching nail polish, a vampy, almost black shade and both did their own hair. I loved that Ella just flipped her head upside down, spritzed on some hairspray and then threw it all up in a pony tail… they are basically the coolest kids ever. Ella wore a gorgeous vintage Vivienne Westwood gown in a neutral metallic shade that she found at a thrift shop so we were inspired to do something with a touch of punk.

In fact it’s the most abundant, making up roughly 25%-35% of the total protein in our bodies. Nice! Collagen is responsible for skin’s elasticity and giving hair and connective tissue their strength. Meaning: it’s essential for keeping skin firm (not saggy or wrinkly) and hair from breaking and falling out.

Something Different… Brooke Candy

It’s really rather impossible to explain the creative thought process that went into this look because it was more of a flow of inspiration. And that is the amazing thing about working with Brooke. She is not only a strong creative collaborator but is also willing to try anything – even when it involves copper foil stuck to her hair and metallic liquid dripping down her torso. Note: Sadly the Tom Ford Cream and Powder Eye Color used for this look was part of a limited edition collection several seasons ago and is no longer available for sale.
