The Care 2020 Gift Guide!

I love the act of giving – as my sister says, it’s one of my love languages. To me, it’s more about knowing the person, what makes them tick, what they like, and how I can show them I care even when I can’t see them in person (thanks, 2020!)  Together with Natalia, Care’s Marketing Manager,…

Maskne, No More!

Have you noticed those little bumps, pimples, red spots or patches of irritation after repeatedly wearing a mask to work or – in my case – even after one trip to the grocery store? Most likely it’s maskne – something new that’s popped up (literally) here in the past year during the global pandemic. Dermatologists have said that mask rubbing, or even sweating underneath a mask, can lead to skin irritation.

Help My Sensitive Skin!

Even after having two, I can still say my skin is as sensitive as a baby’s. For many years, my skin couldn’t tolerate lots of things – most new makeup and skincare products, various sunscreens, pillowcases, and even hotel towels!  When it comes down to it, for people who have sensitive skin (as well as rosacea, eczema, and other skin concerns) it’s usually fragrance that is…

Post-Summer Skincare – Restart with Retinoids!

Yes, being in the sun feels wonderful on my face (especially on a lawn chair with a glass of rosé in hand).  But as summer draws to a close each year, I always start to think about how to make it up to my skin (maybe I will send myself a jade roller with an apology note?) after a season of the great outdoors. It’s not only the sun – but also heat, humidity, sweat mingled…

You Say Hydration, I Say Moisturization

We believe a good product can do (and should) do both! There’s a lot of talk lately about the difference between hydration vs. moisturization, so we thought we’d gather all the info for you, right here:  Hydration means replenishing water molecules within the multiple levels of the skin. Water is essential to skin – in fact, your skin is made up of 64% water, and can’t function without it. If your skin is dehydrated and…

In The Know About Aloe

Growing up in the 80s, most things came out of bottles, tubes and cans – so when I got a cut at a friend’s house, I was surprised to see her mother bring an Aloe Vera plant over to where I was sitting. On the wound (which had been washed with soap and water) she put a gooey, clear-ish substance that oozed out of leaf.  It soothed the…
