Acne, dryness and wrinkles, oh my! Ever wonder what causes our skin to misbehave even with the use of high-end skincare?
Just like our lives, our skin requires a certain balance to function properly. When the acid mantle (the top layer of the epidermis) is disturbed, our pH level changes, which can cause skin conditions such as dermatitis, eczema and rosacea . Our skin is naturally designed to fight infection and environmental stresses and its ability to do so is affected by its pH level.
Be it in the arts, music, food, beauty, or somewhere in-between, our She Glows features celebrate women who are carving out a niche for themselves, and doing it fearlessly. We caught up with the bad-ass and amazingly humble Jenn Louis, owner of two Portland hot-spots, Lincoln Restaurant and Sunshine Tavern. Recognized by Food & Wine Magazine as one of the Best New Chefs of 2012 and author of new cookbook, Pasta By Hand (with a glowing forward by the one and only Mario Batali), our conversation touched on the necessary evolution of feminism, what it’s like to be a female chef, and the value of lifelong learning and positivity. Jenn is an outstanding example of a successful and thoughtful human actualizing her dreams. Read on, and be inspired!
It's undeniable: the salon blowout is a heavenly (and addictive) experience. Walk in with lackluster locks, walk out with bombshell tresses. The delicious smell of shampoo, the relaxing scalp massage, and your mane in the hands of a pro blowout maestro who knows the exact combination of product and hair dryer maneuvering to achieve that sleek straight hair look or an awesome curl that lasts...it's a treat. And we at b-glowing are ALL about luxurious self care!
