Comments Off on 7 Tips From An Aesthetician
Avoid quick fixes. French ladies are known for thinking of beauty as a daily thing; they don’t wait for problems to crop up and then fix them with expensive procedures. Instead, they focus on daily maintenance and prevention.
However, you should use fast-acting ACNE solutions. The more you speed the healing of acne breakouts, the less likely you are to experience acne marks and scars. The Drying Lotion should be your best friend.
Use a regular skin care routine. Going willy-nilly with products and not having a set routine can lead to disaster. Maybe you’re exfoliating too often, and now your skin looks too red. Or possibly you’re using too many products with the same (powerful) active ingredient. Put together a routine (with the help of an aesthetician or other beauty expert) and stick to it.
Bonus: When you have a regular skin care routine, it’s easy to make tweaks here and there and really see what makes a difference in your skin.
Stop tugging at the skin around your eyes. We know it can be hard to remove makeup sometimes, especially waterproof versions. Never try to wash makeup off with your usual facial cleanser. Makeup remover exists for a reason! Mainly because the eyes have the thinnest, driest skin around them, and it’s usually the first to show signs of aging.
Make a solemn vow never to pick, pop, or scratch at your skin—ever again.Doing so tends to make acne worse in the long run and might causing scarring.
Take the sun—and its dangers—seriously. I wish I could wear a full-size Little House On The Prairie-style bonnet to protect my skin from the sun at all times. The sun causes rapidly accelerated aging and could potentially lead to more serious skin conditions (like cancer). Load up on broad spectrum sun protection and put on a hat.
Clean your dirty makeup brushes. Do this, like, all the time, especially if you ever have acne breakouts.

Comments Off on Don’t do this: Go Glycolic Acid Crazy
We love Glycolic Acid so much. I mean, we have 6 products with ‘Glycolic Acid’ in the title.
One thing: we hope you’re not using EVERY Glycolic Acid product at once. Too much of a good thing is, you know, really bad. You could end up over-exfoliating your skin, making it red, irritated, and vulnerable.
Do you want to incorporate some Glycolic Acid into your regimen? Why not start with the Glycolic Foaming Cleanser? You’ll use it a few times a week in place of your usual cleanser, and it’s fantastic for exfoliating and deep-cleaning. It’s definitely an MB favorite; we pretty much always recommending it.
Concerned with eye wrinkles? You might want to look into our Glycolic Eye Cream as well!

Comments Off on Are You Using Too Much Product?
Don’t put this ALL over your face. Spot treat whiteheads only!
Some of us are naturally prone to using too much product. My sister, for example, somehow manages to use up every hair care/skin care product in my bathroom every time she visits. I don’t know what she’s doing in there, to be honest.
If you’re using too much cleanser, moisturizer, eye cream, etc., you might not be getting the results that you want. More isn’t always better, especially when it comes to acne-fighting or anti-aging skin care, which usually have powerful active ingredients. Not sure how much moisturizer to use? What about cleanser
Here’s what you need:
- Cleanser: a dime-sized amount
- Toner: Enough to soak your cotton ball or pad lightly
- Moisturizer: A nickel-sized amount. If you need more, you might simply require a more hydrating moisturizer. DON’T slather more moisturizer on dry skin—switch to one that’s more suited for you.
- Serums: 1-2 drops, depending on directions. (We include the number of drops in our directions!)
- Eye Cream: A (very small) pea-sized amount. Using too much eye cream can cause it to run into your eyes and irritate them.
- Acne Spot Treatments: Our Drying Lotion for Whiteheads is pretty powerful. Use sparingly on affected areas; it is not meant to be used all over the face.
