What about your night time skincare routine?

Our night time skincare routine is just as important as the morning skincare routine. Many of our customers ask whether or not skin care should be done in the morning or evening, but we recommend using the 4-Step Kit to cleanse and tone skin each day, both in the morning and evening.  What is the importance of a night time skin routine?  Assisting your skin with natural rejuvenation at night will make it much more durable during the day, as well as keep damaging factors like the sun, wind, stress and debris from penetrating the epidermal layer. A nighttime skin care routine which focuses on repair and hydration can keep your complexion and skin clear and firm.  What skincare should I...

Benefits of plant-based skincare for Veganuary

It's #Veganuary and we pride ourselves on offering only plant-based skincare at Like It On Top. January is a month-long celebration of all things vegan, created to encourage non-vegans to try out the lifestyle.   Most cosmetics feature some form of animal-derived content, but at Like It On Top we only use botanical ingredients that work in harmony to support and nourish the skin. Our product range is 100% natural, vegan and plantbased, meaning that we have replaced some traditional cosmetic ingredients with plant based options, such as using candelilla wax instead of beeswax. Candelilla wax is a wax derived from the leaves of the small Candelilla shrub native to northern Mexico and the southwestern United States. We use candelilla wax to...

What are the benefits of lavender oil?

Lavender essential oil features a very distinct scent, an aroma renowned for its abilities to relax the mind and promote a good night's sleep. Lavender is a key ingredient in two of our products: Blow (under eye protection) and Grind (face scrub protection).  We recommend using Blow (under eye protection), after cleansing your skin using our 4-Step Kit. Just before bedtime we recommend applying a small amount of Blow under the eyelids (avoiding contact with eyes) by gently patting around the eye area. Blow is handmade using 100% natural ingredients, including organic aloe vera gel, organic glycerin, organic argan oil, organic jojoba oil, organic rosehip oil, citric acid, natural vitamin E and lavender essential oil. The organic lavender essential oil that we use to make Blow (under eye protection) releases soothing...

Are you a spot picker?

... is this you? Many acne suffers may be tempted to pick spots, but this can cause more damage to the skin and prolong healing time for the spot. Acne patches, also known as hydrocolloid patches, are moisture absorbing dressings that are commonly used to help heal chronic wounds. They are breathable, biodegradable and help to keep out bacteria to avoid reinfection. Predominantly they are used to prevent picking at spots and blemishes, although they've taken on a new role. In these unprecedented times, in helping to alleviate "maskne", we discussed this in our previous blog. The term "maskne" or "mask-acne" is used to refer to skin irritation or acne that occurs on a person's face from regularly wearing a face mask....

Caring for skin during the Winter

As temperatures drop so do the moisture levels in your skin. The winter weather conditions can take a toll on your face and body therefore, it’s important to show your skin some TLC to keep it protected all season. Cold temperatures and harsh winds can cause skin to dry out and lose its natural, healthy-looking glow. In addition to the winter weather, central heating can cause the air to dry out, which as a result, can cause your skin to dehydrate. Less sunlight during the darker winter months can also strip your skin of nutrients, which can cause skin to look dull and uneven. When skin is dry, it can begin to feel rough, tight and itchy and can even...
