The Plastic Diaries beauty blogger Kimberly Nissen of The Plastic Diaries sharing Fake Tan Removal expert advice and tips.

We should all be educated enough now to know that a fake tan is the ONLY form of tan that is “healthy”. A natural sun tan is not only aging but also very damaging to the structure and health of our skin. One of the downsides to using a fake tan is that they can become rather unappealing as they fade or we want to remove them. The best way to avoid that hideous patchy tan is to remove it and apply a fresh one before the signs of wear show.

Pinterest and social media love to share DIY recipes for making your own fake tan removal solution but is it safe? Are household cleaners or foods from the grocery store the most effective method? I asked professional makeup artist and co-founder of ANTHEIA Beauty, Brie Stevenson, to give us the hard truths. If you wear fake tan, you need to read this!  Continue Reading

Bioderma Atoderm Nourishing Cream

Dry skin needs a lot of extra TLC in my opinion. If you want smooth, healthy skin you have to fight to keep it hydrated, especially in summer. Internal and external sources of hydration are important to all skin types but extra dry skin can take a little more work to keep the thirst quenched. My dry skin is pretty tough and can get through most conditions relatively unharmed but in summer my legs can get so dry they reveal scales.

I need a body lotion that will hydrate my dry skin but is gentle enough on irritations as well as being highly effective to work fast and help my skin build a stronger barrier. Bioderma’s Atoderm range is specifically designed for dry and very dry skin. Having had success with the body wash, I wanted to try the lotion. Here are my findings.   Continue Reading
