If you are looking for skin care products that are good for your skin and use eco-friendly packaging, you may not have to look further than Youth to the People (YTTP), which I eventually found after a steady transition from being a person who never paid too much attention to skincare. I was one of those people who used a Neutrogena makeup remover wipe and not much else, which is now a mortifying thought. When I started to notice that my skin was becoming increasingly dull and rough, I took the plunge into the world of skin care. I started
If you thought that Gwyneth Paltrow’s natural glow was born of a secretly overwrought routine, you’d be mistaken. The actor turned wellness and beauty entrepreneur enjoys a surprisingly laissez-faire regimen for one so successful in the space—but perhaps that’s the point. “I believe that beauty and wellness are inextricably linked,” says Paltrow, who starts her day with a protein-infused smoothie and a bout of transcendental meditation. Next comes a bit of dry brushing, the bristles pulled in gentle, practiced strokes toward Paltrow’s heart as she espouses its benefits of circulation and exfoliation. A self-described “massive exfoliating junky,” the Goop creator
There’s nothing like falling love, but what about falling in love twice? That’s what happened when I rediscovered my fondness for the Dr. Jart Tiger Grass Color Correcting Skin Treatment after watching dozens of TikToks singing its praises. See, I was an early adoptee of the product (it’s been around for a few years now) but as one does, it fell out of favor when I got the chance to try other new and interesting things. But after neglecting this small but mighty green jar, I’m here to say that it’s the only thing I want to put
What once felt like an impossible-to-achieve ambition in the quest for more sustainable beauty-product packaging has, as of late, become a rapidly increasingly reality: More and more brands are launching products with options to refill the original container. As we predicted, companies at every level — little-known indie lines, designer skin-care creators, drugstore staples, and more — have heard the call to reduce waste, and they’re not ignoring it.
“The benefits of refillable packaging are a net decrease to the amount of plastic that is produced,” Sonya Lunder, senior toxics advisor for Sierra Club‘s Gender, Equity & Environment program,
I developed an interest in skin care at an early age. From the first bottle of Oil Of Olay face moisturizer that I bought at the age of eight to my obsession with Korean skin care products in my pre-teens, I was on a good track when it came to taking care of my dermis. Yet, somewhere along the way, right before college, I became enamored with looking bronze, all the time. Winter or summer, it didn’t matter — I made sure that I maintained the shade with my biweekly visits to the tanning salon. Sunscreens and sunblocks were not
For most people, the appearance of dark circles under the eyes is only a cosmetic concern (and not tied to a more serious health condition), but that doesn’t make them any less annoying. And when it comes to eye creams and other treatments, figuring out what’s causing your dark circles is essential in actually addressing the issue.
“That’s why so many people are disappointed with eye creams,” said Dr. Corey L. Hartman, medical director and founder of Skin Wellness Dermatology in Birmingham, Alabama, and clinical assistant professor at the UAB Department of Dermatology.
He explained that the majority
