So many ingredients so little time.
You’d be forgiven for feeling confused when it comes to choosing your skincare. After all, everyone has a point of view and every brand wants you to believe they have the secret to skincare utopia. But, in truth, we can narrow it down to, not hundreds of ingredients but a handful that truly work. One such ingredient is Niacinamide.
Ever wonder what a Cosmeceutical is?
If you’re interested in the appearance of your skin, then you may know something about cosmeceutical skin care and some of the brands making this claim. But, as it’s a made-up word it may be new to you.

Beetox versus Botox
You want to look your best. But, you’re not quite ready for botox. You’ve heard about creams working just like Botox. Bee venom comes to mind. You ponder. If the claims are true then surely bee venom could be a more natural alternative to botox. After all, botox, it’s a toxin. Right?
Bee venom has been around for a while now but, is it a replacement to botox? The short answer? No, No and definitely No.
The beauty vitamin we all need.
If there were a vitamin that could be named universally as the beauty vitamin, then for me, vitamin D would be the one. Often called the sunshine vitamin, stimulated by exposure to the sun it’s a hormone that interacts with a type of cholesterol found in your skin.
This magical interaction should store vitamin D for when your body needs it. Great, that all seems simple enough, get a little sunshine, and you’re good to go. And yet, we seem to be missing out.
