I don’t know if it has something to do with the dry climate, the excessive amounts of antihistamines I’m taking this spring, or the fact that I’m just getting older, but my oily skin has taken a sharp turn to the dry side as of late. So, I decided to change up my skin care [...]

There’s a Rolling Stones’ song that goes, “You’re lookin’ tired babe.” And when I hear it I can’t help but think Mick is singing to me. Unfortunately, for many women, our under eye circles are giving us a bad rap. They not only make us appear tired, they also make us appear older. But they don’t have [...]
