Review: Nurse Jamie’s Instant Uplift Face Massaging Wand

Can a face massage actually combat fine lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin? The short answer is yes, yes it can. While we’ve been inundated with a variety of nip-and-tuck procedures, lasers, ultra-sounds, anti-aging creams, and other such gizmos and gadgets that promise a more youthful complexion, it seems as though the age-old secret face massage has gotten lost in the mix.

How To Get Better Skin: AHA

We’re probably already using our fair share of alpha-hydroxy acids (AHAs) in our skincare routines without knowing it. (Insert solo high-five here). AHAs are food-derived natural acids and include the well-known glycolic acid (from sugar) and lactic acid (from milk), both of which are staple ingredients when it comes to anti-aging skincare.

How To: Eye Sheet Masks

A few years back, K-beauty products made their way overseas, and we’ve been #obsessed ever since. Who could blame us, have you seen the skin of Korean models? Like silk. One K-beauty staple we’re particularly fond of is sheet masks…and now eye sheet masks, too.
