Growing up, I was a tanning bed queen. Like any teenager growing up in the early 2000’s (ok, maybe not any… :-)), tanning beds were an easy fix for pale skin. Living in Florida definitely didn’t help. As strange as it sounds, when you are able to get sun all year around, you are expected to be tan all year around. Who has time for that?!

As I got older and more aware of the skin damaging effects of UV rays, I stopped using tanning beds and started using sunless tanners instead. This is not an easy substitution, as no tanning lotions are made alike. I have found that it is best to start with a bronzing lotion that will wash off, especially if you have an important event.

That You’ve Never Heard Of

For me, there is nothing better than stumbling across a secret ingredient that very few people seem to be talking about. It seems like once the word about a new product gets out, it spreads so quickly. Whether it is something you consume, like charcoal drinks, or a natural skin care ingredient, like licorice root, it is usually just a matter of time before EVERYONE and their mother is talking about it.

A while back, I found a string of threads in an old beauty site forum. (If I could remember the site, I would share it. :-)) A few people had started a discussion about hormonal breakouts and cysts, and someone mentioned PRID. I did a quick search on PRID, and found that it is a drawing salve used for splinters, blisters and ingrown hairs.

I was instantly intrigued. If this drawing salve is safe for skin and draws out impurities, wouldn’t it be perfect for cystic breakouts? And, aside from just a spot treatment for acne, could this be incorporated in a face mask? And finally, why is no one talking about using drawing salve in a face mask?!

AHA and BHA peels can be a great way to slough off dead skin for a brighter, younger looking complexion. Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA) peels use glycolic, lactic, or mandelic acid to target dark spots and fine lines. Beta Hydroxy Acid (BHA) peels, like salicylic acid, are oil-soluble and are best for chemically exfoliating oily skin and removing blackheads. If you have ever had one of these superficial chemical peels (or even a bad sunburn), then you know just how miserable your face can feel. The redness, the peeling– it makes you not even want to wash your face.
