Best Anti-Aging Skin Care Advice

Aging is unavoidable. However, looking your age is preventable. As we age, our skin changes. The elastic tissue in the skin weakens and the blood vessel walls, as well as the epidermis, thin.

The Perks of a Good Clay Face Mask

Many people are firm believers of face masks when it comes to skin health. But just as many people rarely ever use face masks.

Minimizing Large Pores

Every hair on your body stems from a pore. The average adult has more or less 5 million hairs on his/her body. If you’re feeling insecure about your visibly large pores, take comfort in the fact that at least 4.9 million of your pores are minuscule and unnoticeable.
