Because it is the most visible and recognizable part of ourselves, we take special care of our faces. And as well we should! This is also true of hair removal.
There’s something properly magical about light; how it is tied to life itself, and the renewal of nature every Spring… Yet light is also a fantastic beauty tool that one would be remiss to pass by.
