Thankful for a Year of Good Skincare

Thanksgiving coming up this month has got me thinking about how lucky Mali Mali is to be in business for over a year now!!

Falling In Love With Your Skin

Falling In Love With Your Skin

The leaves are officially falling and sweaters are becoming a must (even here in Dallas). So often in the fall, we are so jealous of warmer summer weather and too busy prepping for winter that we forget to take proper care of our skin. The drier air in autumn and winter months sucks more moisture from your skin. So, while we begin to wrap up in layers, it’s crucial that we also moisturize our skin properly. Beyond applying your moisturizer, it’s essential to also hydrate thoroughly. This can be from eating water-rich fruits and vegetables. And while sometimes difficult, it...

Soaking up the Sun and Harmful Chlorine

Soaking up the Sun and Harmful Chlorine

This past weekend, I spent time with my family at the pool, and I started thinking about the effects of chlorine on your skin and hair. So I did some digging… Chlorine is an oxidizing agent, meaning it bonds with free-floating molecules in your pool in an effort to protect your skin from harmful bacteria in the water. While this is good, chlorine also strips natural oils off your skin while you swim. This can destroy much needed protein within the body and can lead to dryness and rashes for those with sensitive skin. In the long run, chlorine can...
