What pollution does to your skin

What pollution does to your skin

August 19, 2019 0 Comments

I'm sometimes asked why my products specifically target the effects of city-life. It's pretty straight-forward: skin has the simple (yet paramount) task of being your body's barrier from the outside elements. It's naturally doing a good job, for certain, but many of those elements that it's protecting you against?  Those aren't natural. Your skin's natural defenses can only take so much abuse. You are wearing a coat of armour for a whole other kind of battle.

Let me just be stark about this. You know what you don't want in common with a Sea Captain? Weathered skin. And scurvy, probably. Eat those lemons.

 

"Weathering" happens to everything. It's the law of the universe that all things naturally lean towards chaos and destruction. (It's called entropy, but let's not get too nerdy right now.)

 I’m so over beauty trends. My skin is so sensitive now. I partly blame FOMO for that. Wanting to try everything, my face couldn’t take it. I’ve turned down the volume of the whole “what’s new” and stay in my lane. But, those full face LED devices have caught my eye

M: As the green beauty/wellness community has changed SO much over the past 5-8 years,I tune out so much of the fear-mongering noise over ingredient/lifestyle perfectionism. I initially fell in love with green beauty because the products were so special, beautiful and unique, not because they upheld some false dichotomized notion of "purity." I do believe we can do better than petrochemicals and endocrine disruptors in products but "clean beauty" doesn't exist in a vacuum and there are many other sociocultural issues at play.

Stark: Do you have memories of some of your earliest beauty splurges or products you couldn't live without in your teen years? Do you have any products or brands you still use from back then?
Sammie: Gosh, do I ever. I loved me some Lip Smackers (remember the Dr. Pepper one?), and I have vivid memories of my aunt selling

Natch Beaut Shout-out!

Natch Beaut Shout-out!

March 01, 2019 0 Comments

I LOVE this! Stark is all vegan, all natural and made in small batches in Canada. And it’s woman-owned (shout out to Jess, the founder!). 

 

I am OBSESSED with beauty podcasts, such as Fat Mascara, Breaking Beauty, Emma Gunns and the hilarious Natch Beaut. Stark was first mentioned on Natch Beaut last year when Michelle Davis, aka Thug Kitchen mentioned her love of Stark. Michelle has been a long-time customer of mine... if you've never read Thug Kitchen, YOU MUST! I find her irreverent approach to cooking vegan meals to be refreshing and inspiring, especially for those times when you just CAN'T with cooking anymore.
