[Product Review] Beautycounter Products

For years I would struggle with skincare products, going from one brand to another, hoping each time I would find one that works for my skin. After the initial breakout from using a new product, my skin would look great for a few months. Inevitably my skin would get used to the product or rely on using it and the brands supplementary products to get the best effect. This would result in breakouts or oiliness or blocked pores and I would move on to the next brand. Eventually I grew tired of this and decided to simplify things and only Read More

Using Habits To Your Advantage

Alternative Ways to Find Relief from Concussion Symptoms
