Alright, so was it just me or did everyone at the Oscars look like they did their own hair and makeup themselves this year? Ironically that might make the rest of us common folk feel better.

Another sunny day in Los Angeles passed, holding the 59th Annual Grammys in its palm. Hundreds of celebrities filtered in to flood the red carpet in all their visionary glory, or in some cases some with their “Visionary WTF”.

Ever wonder why your scalp is so itchy lately? Or that your skin feels tight and dry, like it will crack open if you move too much?

Summer is winding down, but the last rays of sun are still upon us. The recent weather may have drenched us literally and figuratively with rain and humidity but that doesn’t mean there aren’t still sunny days left before we tuck them away for Fall. There might still be a good beach day or two left in us to catch the last hopes of a tan. Perhaps there’s a BBQ or more to attend, jumping in an out of the sprinklers or pools. With this great power of worshiping the sun comes the great responsibility of caring for the skin you’re in.
