Oily skin has gotten a bad rap. There are literally hundreds of products sold specifically for skin that’s oily. From facial wipes to cleansers and oil free moisturizers and masks, your skin’s naturally occurring sebum has been the target of a lot of bad press. And we’re here to say that it’s undeserving! While that afternoon forehead shine may not be the stuff dreams are made of, it actually has some good to offer you.
You’ve probably seen it by now: beard oil. Your barber or salon might have it. You might see it in the wellness or beauty sections of your local supermarket. Maybe you’ve smelled it on someone during a hug. And maybe you or a man you know wears it already. But what’s all the hype about? Why would facial hair need or benefit from scented oils in it? And why not just use a cologne if you’re trying to smell good? These are all great questions, and their answers are pretty straightforward.
When it comes to vitamin C serum, we wax poetic a lot. But can you blame us?! It’s the perfect product for every skin type; there’s literally not a single skin type that couldn’t benefit from its use. It’s that good. Especially when it comes to the sunshine. Yep, vitamin C serum is the perfect private label skincare product to use when it’s sunny out, and since summer is right around the corner, now’s the time to make sure you’ve got what you need to keep your skin protected.
It’s finally spring! If you live in the Pacific Northwest like we do, the sun shining in a blue sky is something you look forward to for months and months. It’s the ultimate gift after enduring so much gray and rain. But even if you live somewhere where spring comes sooner than rainy Oregon, the sound of birds chirping and the sight of flowers poking through the soil to greet the warmer temperatures is still exciting. And just like those flowers are seasonal, so too can your skincare be. For some people that means switching to a lighter moisturizer while others start adding an SPF to their routine. In the midst of your seasonal private label skincare adaptations, remember that essential oils can be seasonal too!
Have you ever experienced a resurfacing mask before? It’s basically the same as an exfoliating mask, except the resurfacing aspect makes it closer to an enzyme mask than any kind of treatment that involves manual exfoliation. Resurfacing treatments are the kind of procedures you can often go see an esthetician or dermatologist for, and their intensity ranges from mild to pretty intense. People often seek out these kinds of treatments in their quest to help their skin deal with issues like hyperpigmentation and texture complaints. The treatments, while often effective, can be costly and time consuming. Which is why it’s a great idea to do it yourself!
Going to the spa is a serious treat. It’s relaxing, rejuvenating and helps us reboot and recharge from our regularly busy and responsibility filled lives. There’s nothing like getting a massage, facial, or a simple relaxing soak in a hot tub to help yourself rewire. Unfortunately, the spa isn’t always the most affordable luxury. For many of us, we only get to go a handful of times in our lives, even though most of us could really use it on the regular! While the price it costs to go to the spa isn’t going to change any time soon, the good news is that you can recreate your own version of a spa day at home. With a little bit of time set aside and a few key private label skincare products, you can be well on your way to some much needed, low cost relaxation.
Two of the most popular oils in the private label skincare industry today are Jojoba and Argan. You can find them in everything from hair care products to body lotions and face oils. Both are touted as moisturizing oils that won’t clog pores and help keep the skin smooth and hair frizz free. We’ll admit, we like them both, and include both of them in our various private label skincare offerings. When sourced responsibly and used appropriately, each oil provides noticeable benefits. But are these two oils actually equal? Or does one come out on top?
