Body Oil or Body Butter?

Body oil vs. body butter – what is the difference and which one is best for my skin? Body Oil: If your skin is dehydrated (dry due to lack of moisture within) oils can be a great solution with multiple benefits! A good quality, natural body oil resembles the oil that your skin naturally produces, therefore lubricates and maintains your skin’s moisture barrier by posing little to no risk of clogging your pores.

Makeup – An Expression of Self

Makeup - An Expression of Self Written by Laurel Beatty  (Esthetician & Make-up Artist at Spa 901) Makeup is often misperceived as a means to cover one’s imperfections.

As young as twelve, I was experimenting with makeup. I had every color of…
