skincare hype we might like…


BOTOX IN A BOTTLE??

Argireline is a topical peptide (also popularly reffered to as “Botox in a Bottle”) that reportedly reduces wrinkles and plumps skin. When applied topically, Argireline can reduce facial wrinkles and fine lines. With results like that, it’s easy to see why this peptide is a hit.

What Is Argireline?

Argireline is a peptide – a short chain of amino acids – that is one small fragment of a protein called SNAP-25. “If a full protein is a chain-link necklace, a peptide is just a few links of that chain or a fragment of a protein,” explains Blair Murphy-Rose, M.D., FAAD Board-certified cosmetic dermatologist practicing in New York City and the Hamptons.

How To Add Argireline to Your Routine

Once you’ve done a patch test to check for any allergic reactions, add Argireline into your skincare routine in both the morning and evening. Apply Argireline to wrinkle-prone or troublesome spots (particularly the forehead or near the eyes) twice per day and stick with it for at least 30 days for best results.

ORGANIC BANANA PEEL?

You may want to know if this is a common myth or truth?
Does it really work to lather up a peel of a banana onto your bare skin?
In some parts of the world, they have been using this method from generations.
After eating a banana, don’t throw the peel away, instead rub it in circular motions on bare skin. That’s it! So easy!
People who suffer from acne or the occasional pimple can benefit greatly from rubbing a banana peel on their face.
Some use it to brighten skin and reduce wrinkles placing a banana peel on closed eyes to reduce puffiness, using a banana peel as a moisturizer to hydrate skin rubbing the peel on acne scars to help them fade. Concludes this is definitely not a myth for some.
Banana peel has properties like Minerals and Nutrients, Phytates, Oxalates etc.


K BEAUTY, The hype is real long lasting too.

Here’s Everything You Need to Know. From sleeping packs to treatment ampoules, we’re here to demystify the world of K-Beauty (that’s Korean beauty to you and me).

Essentially a name to categorize the Korean influence upon our own skincare routines and the epic product imports from the country itself, K-Beauty is the secret to looking as luminous as is humanly possible.

While K-Beauty is no longer a new concept to us, its typically kitschy aesthetic kept it confined to teenage beauty cabinets for a few years. But now, Korean skincare has truly come of age, with the likes of Cult Beauty.

To us, it’s not just a hype! I have been using K Beauty products for years. Seeing great results with exfoliates, toners, cleansers and serums. Who can forget the love of getting SHEET faced!? we certainly cant! it’s just the best feeling ever after a long day to plop on a hydrating soothing, cooling sheet mask.
Arshi, our team member just recently started using K-beauty products recommended by Layla.
“I could see a significant difference in my skin overall, It leaves my skin smooth, hydrated and clean. It has been a part of my Daily Morning Skincare Routine.” said arshi.
Though k-beauty routines typically consists of 10 steps, we can incorporate as much or as lil as to our skin needs.

Here are few of the steps in a brief:

Double cleanse – Clean = pristine. Your first, oil-based, cleanser (yes, there will be two), is used to dissolve make-up and grime that sits on the surface of your skin, allowing your second cleanse (usually a foam or stick) to tackle pollution and impurities from within the pores.

Exfoliate – Less is more for the Korean woman, so you won’t find any hardcore daily exfoliants on the K-Beauty aisles. Some industry experts recommend exfoliating every other day, while others suggest as little as once a month. Twice a week, with a gentle AHA-soaked pad, is a happy medium for most.

Tone – To remove any left-over cleansing residue, and prep the skin for the next steps.

Treatment essence – This is likely the point where you’ll start scratching your head. However, essence is actually less mythical than it sounds – these watery formulas are simply a lighter version of a serum, used to prep your skin for the products that follow.


Treatments – Ok, this one’s easy. Slather on your favorite boosters, serums and ampoules to clarify, brighten, or simply hydrate with concentrated active ingredients. Typically, K-Beauty treatments are highly results-focused, holding up to ingredients-list scrutiny with ease.

Sheet mask – We’re not suggesting you reach for a sheet mask every day, but they are a great weekly treat to help infuse more moisture into your skin, leading to that elusive glass-skin glow.
