Bikini Lines and SPF

It’s important to moisturize and use SPF! Skin is skin, right? It should never be neglected. 

We pay so much attention to what we put on our face, but we seem to not give the same attention to our bodies. Have you looked at the ingredients in your SPF? Have you checked the back label on your body lotion or SPF? And are you using the same products on your vulva?

PLEASE STOP 🛑 Look at those ingredients!

Here are some pore clogging ingredients to look out for! Maybe this will make you think twice when purchasing products for your face too.

So, what does comedogenic mean? The root of this word is “comedone.” According to the U.S. National Library of Medicine, comedones are bumps that are raised on the surface of the skin. They’re caused by acne and found in pores. Basically, comedones are pimples.
