clean beauty brand spotlight: kulia skincare

Some of you may know that over the years, I have become increasingly discerning with skincare. There are a few main reasons for this:

  • Skincare is frighteningly under-regulated
  • Labels are incredibly misleading
  • The skin is our largest organ, and it absorbs whatever we feed it

When I began to research clean skincare, I went through a wave of emotions. I was excited to find the best possible products (clean & effective), I was sad that some of my life long items had to be tossed, and I was angry that few restrictions are in place to protect us from ourselves when it comes to skincare.

About 3 months ago, I was introduced to Kulia Skincare. It was the perfect time to reignite my love for clean beauty that is sustainable and responsible, from production to ingredients.

The other part is internally weeping for the collection of gowns, heels, and handbags that I coveted for years that now sit gathering dust.

I experienced my treatment at BayPointe Dermatology here in Miami, and the team there had so much great information to share about skincare, the HydraFacial procedure, and how to get into a regimen of monthly HydraFacial treatments to keep pores clean.

I am always exploring new ways to keep my skin clean, get a little extra glow, fight aging, and indulge in a little self-care. Lately, I felt like my skin texture was looking rather dull, so I was on the hunt for a procedure that was non-invasive but also pampering. After a little research, I realized HydraFacial was exactly what I needed.
