4 Reasons to Include Manuka Honey in Your Skincare
You've probably heard the term "mind-body connection," but in an increasingly busy, connected world, that link is still highly misunderstood. Going beyond just something you say at yoga class, there is a physiological connection between your gut, your largest organ - your skin, and your mood.

Serum for Acne Prone Skin
Over 80% of the population is affected by acne, and there are many treatments targeting this popular skin challenge.
One misconception is that you just need to clean skin really well to keep it acne-free. While keeping skin and surfaces that interact with it - such as phones, pillows, hands, etc. - clean is a big part of reducing breakouts, the skin-clearing magic happens in the treatment portion of your skincare routine - the serum.
Serums are designed to be the "meal" of your skin care routine, nourishing and treating it.
Make sure that your AM and PM serums have the ingredients your skin needs to protect and improve its microbiome, and address its individual needs.
CALM Face + Hand Acne-Reducing Serum from MOOD Skin Care is specifically formulated to help acne-prone skin reduce breakouts, and better tolerate drying ingredients like Salicylic Acid that may be in your cleanser or toner as part of your journey to clear skin.
