According to the California Science Center, about 60% of the human body is made up of water. Just like we need water to prevent dehydration, our skins need to be taken care of the same way. Keeping the biggest organ of the human body moisturized, smooth, and looking healthy should be everyone’s priority and incorporate it into the everyday lifestyle.

My good girlfriend only stocks up on their shampoo. You can call us “crazee for Burt’s Bees!”
I always think it’s funny when people tell me I have a glamorous job. The words “magazine editor” conjure images of exclusive red-carpet soirees and celeb-infused events. Sure, I get a cool invite or two and tons of free products, and I’ve sat a mere arm’s length away from such luminaries as Tony Leung and Ralph Fiennes at one time. But most of the time?
