#Shelfie: Summer Skincare Staples

For me, summer is equal parts fighting acne and pigmentation (more to come on the latter in a different post) and hydrating the skin, as sun and swim completely dehydrate the complexion. I look for products that won’t exacerbate any of my skin concerns and, hopefully, will actually work to improve them.

Some people – myself included – never seem to catch a clear complexion break.

#Shelfie: Matt Woodcox Of Dirty Boys Get Clean

“I always feel the need to start out by saying that I am not a minimalist by any means. I admire people that can have a minimal set of products and be set. To each their own; I like to test and try different things and my skin can handle it. My skincare story, however, does have a not-so-glowing past.
