https://beautytap.com/2020/06/what-the-worlds-top-dermatologists-want-you-to-know-about-sunscreen/ Watch out for UVC rays when outside. UVC are the most damaging and can penetrate even darkened windows and highly cloudy skies. Apply SPF 30 or higher every two hours hrs as needed and use natural sun blockers like Titanium Dioxide and Zinc oxide. These natural compounds cause UV rays to deflect off of the skin while chemical sunscreens absorb the UV rays into it. We don’t want this to happen because it creates unnecessary heat and thus inflammation in the skin.
This mask is a MUST HAVE for aging skin! It contains a hydrogel that protects your skin as it heals with an anti-aging , fermented seed. It is also effective for minimizing dark spots due the licorice root it contains. Licorice root is a strong melanin suppressant,or an ingredient that slows pigment production in the skin. This mask is not only effective but soothing and relaxing. Perfect for a girls night or just for pampering yourself.

Q-What are some good products to take advantage of right now?
A- I would take advantage of the sales going on right now. The Laneige Lips Masks and other lip products have gone down a lot in price including the tin lip tints and the moisturizing lipsticks. Thes have anti-aging agents in them that help keep lines and dryness at bay. They plump and soothe your lips. I have always had the worst problem with dry lips but now that I use the mask at night I only need to use lip-balm one or twice a day. You can use the lip mask as a daily balm as well. I SWEAR BY THIS STUFF!!!Remember to follow me before you before you buy anything and put in the code BAfirstorder so you can get th[Read more]

Q- Why use Resforsea Products? A- Restorsea products are a real game changer for skin. They are a medical grade skincare line that is created with cutting edge technology and pure ingredients. The magic ingredient in Restorsea is an enzyme found during the process of salmon eggs hatching. The founder discovered that this enzyme exfoliates dead skin cells while leaving live tissue alone, makes the skin very soft and is anti-inflammatory. For radiant and glowing skin try this Restorsea cleanser and “sea” for yourself. https://beautytap.com/product/restorsea-reviving-cleanser-200g/ This cleanser is really good for acne, aging and dark spots.
Q What is Miceller Water and do I need it.
A- First of all, if you wear makeup you definitely need it. Secondly, it cant hurt if you dont. Micellar water is great for a second cleanse because it is gentle and even removes eye makeup.
This is how it works: it is a gentle surfactant (the stuff in dishpan washing and laundry detergent) that sweeps away gunk on your skin. Simply activate it by dowsing a cotton round and gently sweeping across the the face. The micelles form small beads that encapsulate makeup, dirt and debris that are easily swept away by the cotton round. The best part is, no need to rinse !!! I am including a link to a really good Micellar water to purchase from this web-s[Read more]
Q-What exactly is propolis and what can it do for me?
A-You may have noticed the ingredient propolis in many Korean skincare products and wonder what it is and how it affects your skin. To put it simply, propolis is a waxy substance made from tree sap and beeswax that bees use to protect the inside of their hives. Stay with me before you get grossed out. We used bee products all the time. Like honey to eat and use in facial masques and beeswax for candles and skincare.
Propolis has its own properties though, as it is anti-microbial and a natural defense against acne. In fact, it can be used as a first line of defense against acne due to its anti-microbial properties. Not only does it help[Read more]
Q and A – How often should I exfoliate?
Exfoliation is one of the best things you can do for your skin– for both your face and body. One of the main things to remember is that it all depends on your skin type and how harsh an exfoliant you\’re going to use As a general rule, if skin on the body is healthy, gentle exfoliation is needed everyday. Don’t forget to moisturize afterwards!
As for the face, this is where it gets trickier. It all depends on your skin type and what it can handle. The last thing you want to do is over exfoliate. This can strip your skin of it’s protective oils and make you more susceptible to aging and acne. As a general rule, gentle enzymatic or manua[Read more]
Q&A What to do if you have melasma or other hyperpigmentation.
When you were a kid the last thing you thought about before going outside to ride your bike was smearing some broad spectrum SPF all over your skin to protect it from UV damage. All those summers playing outside from dawn til dusk and all those boating trips may have caught up with you now that you\’re an adult. And if you were like me in my twenties you committed the ultimate sin– you used tanning beds (queue the horror music!) If you came away from all that without pigmentation problems, consider yourself a miracle.
On the flipside, if you have plenty of pigmentation you do should start wearing a broad spectrum SPF of 30[Read more]
@ & A- What type of SPF is the best for preventing aging and skin-cancer? As a general rule, one should wear at least SPF 30 with Zinc Oxide and reapply every four hours. This is important because the body and UV rays breaks down the SPF and renders it useless. Zinc Oxide is ideal because it is a mineral that reflects about 98% of long and short UVA and UVB rays off the skin. This protects skin from premature aging and skin-cancer. Did you know that 80% of skin-aging is caused by UV rays from the sun!?! It also breaks down the skin’s protective barrier and Langerhans cells that fight off skin diseases and do not repair themselves for weeks! Some people believe that a tan improves their a[Read more]
