I own a luxury-skincare company called Bruja Luxury. When I'm not creating luxurious body butters, body oils and soaps, I'm traveling.On here, I'll be writing about skincare and my travels.
What's In Your Perfume, Soap or Lotion?
The holiday season is approaching and with that comes the onslaught of purchasing perfumes, body washes and good smelling lotions. So what's in those ingredients that give it the smell that you love so much. Is it a fragrance? An essential oil? What? Does it matter? Is it all the same? Does it matter when it comes to your skin?
Skin is Not Just Skin
Being in skincare, nothing annoys me more than hearing people say ridiculous things like, "skin is just skin." It is not. Your skin is the largest organ of your body and how you treat your skin is an indicator of how the rest of your body will react. Skin is not just skin as there are differences. Let's talk the difference in skin types, a clear example that skin is not just skin.
Womb Facts Every Woman Should Know
I remember when I got pregnant with my one and only child and morning sickness kicked in and then it kept kicking in. I remember thinking, "nobody told me that morning sickness doesn't just happen in the morning." Then as the pregnancy progressed and I felt my insides literally shift to make room for the baby I was going to be carrying, I remember again thinking that nobody told me I'd feel this either.
Exfoliation and Its Benefits To Your Skin
Your skin is your biggest organ. It is also one of the most important organs that you have. When you take care of your skin, you are helping to take care of all the other parts of your body. Clear, radiant skin is a sign that you are doing something right, genetics aside.
Your Shower Water Is Affecting Your Skin
There is a Clubhouse room promoting cold showers. If you enter that room, which runs seven days a week, there are plenty of people praising the effects of cold showers and the impact that it has had on their skin. There are people who take cold showers all year round. For some, showering in the cold, in the dead of winter is a no go, for others it is a must.
Hydrating and Moisturizing - What's the Difference
The cold weather is rapidly approaching, although in some places it is already freezing and we are still in fall. With the cold air comes all these wonderful skincare commercials. Hydrating this, moisturizing that and if you don't know any better you would think both are the same. Well, they are not. There is a distinct difference between hydrating your skin and moisturizing it, but they are both equally important.
The Skin Diseases You Contract Not Washing
Today Colin Powell died from complications due to COVID-19 despite being fully vaccinated. Both him, others fully vaccinated and even those not vaccinated have been dying of COVID and doing so despite mask mandates being required everywhere. To date, over 700,000 people have died.
Sensitive Skin vs. Sensitivity Skin
Skin sensitivity is a huge issue for many people. According to The International Society of Dermatology, 44.6% of Americans claim to have sensitive to extremely sensitive skin. The thing most people would be surprised to find out though is that they may not have sensitive skin at all but sensitivity skin.
Benefits of Body Butter
Fall is my favorite time of the year next to summer. I'm a late summer baby and a Virgo, so summer is ending when I'm born and fall is around the corner. Now that we've reached Fall, it is time for you to change up your body butter routine. Now, if you're not using body butter. You should. It is much better than lotion as it is much more moisturizing than lotion and lasts longer than lotion.
