What is microneedling about?

Sounds kinda scary, doesn’t it?  At least that’s what I thought when I first heard about this treatment.  The reality is, however, that microneedling is quickly becoming one of the most sought-after esthetic treatments.  It is rivaling what more expensive treatments like fraxel laser can do at a fraction of the cost.  Microneedling is also considered non-invasive and has...

Skincare ingredients: mineral oil

Chances are, if you have any widely available skin care products in your bathroom, mineral oil is one of the top 3 ingredients.  I say this without any judgment – it’s just the facts!  Many skin care manufacturers use this substance for at least 2 reasons:  it helps the product to spread evenly, and it makes your skin feel temporarily moisturized....
