Skin Profile: Perioral Dermatitis

Hello everyone! We’re very excited to introduce you to our next Skin Profile: Emma! Emma creates stunning floral arrangements - from her farm to your home - assembled with love in Toronto. Emma struggles with Perioral Dermatitis (PD) a rash-like skin condition that forms small bumps around the mouth (but can also go all the way up to the eyes - hello, been there). It is almost a combination of acne and rosacea, and thus it is often treated similarly.

Hyaluronic Acid Guide

Hyaluronic Acid (HA) is a naturally occurring sugar in our skin that holds water and helps to keep our skin hydrated and plump. Our natural HA can hold a thousand times its weight in water (!) in our skin and joints AND prevents the moisture from evaporating into the air. Similarly to the collagen and elastin in our skin, the natural HA in our skin begins to decrease as we age. There are multiple ways to naturally boost the HA in our skin as we get older - diet and skincare are two very important ways! Where Does it Come From Fruits and veggies that are high in antioxidants protect the skin from inflammation and help the skin retain HA. You might...
