Posted on: May 4th, 2016 by Elysiann Bishop

Love you Mom!Being a mother is a selfless job – often putting the needs of children and family before oneself. Mother’s Day is this Sunday, May 8. While flowers and other traditional gifts are always appreciated, why not take a different approach this year?

If you mother is a novice when it comes to skincare, a starter kit is an easy way to let her try out some new products while taking the guesswork out of what makes a solid regimen. These sets are also ideal for travel. Actifirm offers two such kits that promise smoother, firmer, healthier skin with regular use: (more…)

Actifirm Z-Peel: Legendary Exfoliation

Posted on: April 13th, 2016 by Elysiann Bishop

041216-01Any of us obsessed with skincare knows that exfoliation is a key component of any successful regimen.
