If You Buy Only One Summer Face Product, Make It One Of These! Physicians Formula Healthy Wear.

As far as I am concerned, this is the must buy product of the summer: Physician’s Formula Healthy Wear!  I absolutely love these two items, and I am so happy that I bought them on a whim for review while out running errands! OK, so you know how important sunscreen is, and if you are

I tend to like Exuviance products, and I certainly like the latest item that they sent to me. Exuviance Sheer Refining Fluid SPF 15.

DDF always tends toward impressive skin care products, including melasma treatments and sunscreen.

Melasma Treament with Exuvince Skin Brightening Gel

I am constantly switching up my melasma treatment products. I do this for two reasons: (1) I want to test them all for publication, and (2) It is actually good for you to switch products. Hyperpigmentation tends to respond best when different items are used, so switching treatment actives now and then can trigger your skin
