Never has my skin taken so well to an ingredient. The word “acid” seems alarming at first, but I love what Hyaluronic Acid does for my face and the health of my skin.  As you may have read or heard, Hyaluronic Acid (which looks like a pure, clear jelly) is a molecule that can hold up to 1,000x its weight in…

Handle Your Morning Like a Boss

Mornings might have been the boss of me lately, but I realize that has got to change. I’ve truly never been a “rise and shine” person, even after a coffee and a shot of espresso.  It was hard enough getting out the door when I was single, and now with two kids (and two school…
