Here are 7 tips to keep your skin glowing and blemish-free this holiday season!
red light therapy
Red light therapy has been around for decades and is backed by years of scientific research.

Here is the thing...not all collagen is created equal. Especially when we are comparing animal collagen to human collagen. Fun fact: they aren’t the same. Concerns surrounding collagen supplements include additives and preservatives that can lead to inflammation, poor gut health and breakouts as well as poorly sourced animal products that can carry heavy metals, animal diseases and cause a multitude of health issues.
