  • The Tea on Hyaluronic Acid

    As we age, HA decreases and is no longer as present in our skin and bodies as it was once in our early years. This is why as we age, the moisture and elasticity of our skin begins to change. This is why it has become so popular in the skincare realm over the past few years.

    HA = Hydration
    HA can hold up to 1,000 times its molecular weight in water! That’s wild! Can we say hello to moisture and rejuvenation for our skin.

  • Why We Started

    You see, Ruby’s initial passion is the arts. She is an actor, has written and directed theatrical plays and loves working as a creative director. Many may ask “why in the world would she choose to start a skincare business of all things?”. Great question! As an actor, your face is the first thing a casting director sees when considering to call you in for an audition. It’s the step that comes before getting your foot in the door. As someone that has had consistent issues with her skin and found it difficult to constantly afford the high end, natural and vegan products that actually worked, she decided to change the narrative.

  • The Tea on Pimple Popping.

    You’re delaying the healing.
    Our bodies are made so miraculously that most times they already know exactly what we need in order to heal. When we pop that pimple, we delay the natural healing process. Not popping can result in clearer skin faster than popping and then having to deal with the inflammation, redness and additional breakouts after popping.
  • The Tea on Hyperpigmentation

    Hyperpigmentation can sound kinda scary. Though it isn’t pleasing and can sometimes affect your self esteem, it’s not as scary as it sounds. Here’s the low down on hyperpigmentation!

    What is hyperpigmentation?
    In short, hyperpigmentation is darkened spots or patches on the skin. It occurs when there is an excess of melanin production in certain areas, and this forms those darker spots on the skin.

  • Double Cleansing

    What is double cleansing?

    Double cleansing originated in Japan and Korea. It’s a practice of doing exactly what’s in the name, cleansing twice. The key is in the type of cleansers that you choose to double cleanse with. Usually this cleansing is completed with 2 different types of cleanser, though some do opt to clean with the same cleanser back to back. It really depends on your skin and it’s needs.
