For the past several weeks I’ve been discussing how to customize your skincare routine.
Just to reiterate, I’ll be sharing all kinds of recipes and tricks from my upcoming Ebook, Shine On, over the next several weeks, months, years.. I don’t know, however long it takes to share it all. But the thing is there’s so much to share that I can’t just throw it all out there at once, so first we’re discussing the different types of skin types that there are and how you can customize each of my recipes to address those issues.
When it comes to skincare things aren’t one-size-fits-all. In fact, what works for one person may not work for you at all. So not only am I going to be sharing recipes, but I also want to share a little bit of science so you can understand the logic behind why I’m recommending what I am.
By understanding what it is that’s going into your skincare products, and subsequently your skin, you can really customize everything to create a skincare line that is totally, perfectly you!

You work hard and you play hard, and at the end of the day you’re just left feeling a little… yucky. Here are some great oils that’ll leave you feeling (and smelling) fresh.
