  • Demystifying even more skincare myths

    It seems the Halloween season’s main mantra is alive and well in the world of skincare. Is it a trick? Is it a treat? Or is it simply one more beautifying myth begging to be busted?

    The body is a wondrous thing, is it not? From the intricate workings of your innards to the magnificent mechanics of your outers, the human body is rife with bells, whistles, and countless charms.

So get those safety pins out — and prepare to burst some skin-care belief bubbles!
