Cold Pressed Oils (Cold Pressed ingredients in Skincare)


Oils have dated back to the days of Cleopatra and are known to be the most highly concentrated form of their host. Rich in fatty acids, anti-oxidants and nutrients they are able to penetrate down deeper into the skin and deliver reparative results. You can layer them under a moisturizer or mix them into your favorite moisturizer(my daily ritual) and mix them into a thicker foundation to sheer out the coverage and offer extra hydrating benefits. But how do you know if you are getting the best oil ingredients in your favorite skincare product?

You have probably heard of ‘Cold Pressed’ before, maybe more in your local Juicery or on your favorite Olive Oil Bottle, but its time to pay attention to your skincare as well. Cold Pressed is a method to create emulsion without using heat so the active ingredients stay more potent and concentrated.

What you should know:

*Rich in Fatty Acids/Nutrients/Anti-Oxidants

*Processed without Chemical Extraction

*Hexane Free( a solvent used to extract insecticides used to grow the seeds, nuts and veggie oil crops; used in industrial cleaners and degreasers- basically NOT GOOD for your skin!!)

*No Transfats

*Stored in dark bottles away from the direct sunlight

*Use the best Oils for your skintype

*Oils attract UV rays, make sure to layer with a light sunscreen

Detox Your Beauty Ritual


The overwhelming feeling of walking into a beauty Store can most likely make you put it into reverse and swear to just wash your face with body soap( side note please don’t do that) just so you don’t have to stand there staring aimlessly at all the brands screaming back at you, “Buy Me, I’m the best, I’ll fix everything!” It gives me anxiety just thinking about it… Even as a Makeup Artist/ Esthetician I can get overwhelmed and I’m constantly trying to find brands( especially within skin care) that are clean and not full of a bunch of chemically driven ingredients.

I introduce you to my new favorite LOVE… The Detox MarketĀ 


They have everything you need from Body, Makeup, Skincare and more and the BEST part is you can sign up for a monthly subscription The Detox Box and receive the best tried and true products that will be best for your skin.


I just received my first shipment and was amazed at how big the product sizes are and you’ll receive detailed info on the products chosen for you…


My first detox is Dr. Alkaitis Raw Holisitic Organic Skin Food. Im already loving what the Doctor has ordered with his statement of

“If you cant eat it, dont put it on your skin”

Check back with me and Ill share my review on my first Detox Box!!!
