Krave Sweets is a line of skincare products created by beauty expert and naturalist, Ebony Pagnotta, consisting of body scrubs, lip balm, body cream, and sensual body oils. “…I had like a regular corporate job and I was in a relationship with this older guy. In the end the job ended, the guy ended and I basically was at like rock bottom and I moved back to my mom’s house…I woke up one day and I was like so sad and I had this horrible breakout–I mean I didn’t look like myself, I didn’t feel like myself–everything was just bad…I was like this is a result of me not taking care of myself and not putting myself first, you have to put yourself first or nobody will…I was really just caught up on him…so I was asking my mom how can I fix my skin it looks so bad and I don’t feel godd because I didn’t look good and she was like try a bunch of stuff over the counter and it was not working. All the over the counter stuff was not good in the long run, it worked for a day and then not all…so I kept thinking how I could fix this. My grandmother had the best skin ever–97 years of great skin–so I was like lemme take this back to the basics…she was born in 1915 and they didn’t have any Retinol or salycic acid or anything like that…so I did a little research for natural things to heal the skin and found all this healthy stuff. So the first thing I did was a sugar scrub–a lemon sugar scrub–so I literally started mixing things up…I was on a mission to fix my face, my body emotionally and physically and came up with a recipe. Once I perfected it on me I tried it on other people–my friends and family –then it worked on them and it went from there.”

Men’s “Skin Care: 10” for Better Skin

This winter the weather has been more up and down than a roller coaster at Six flags over Georgia, and if you’re like me you’ve had a little trouble trying to keep your skin healthy and hydrated from this warm, cold, dry and wet weather. Here are some affordable skincare tips I’ve discovered for us guys to keep our skin feeling healthy, smooth and looking good.

Even though the humidity is constantly changing from day to day, the continuous change in weather will make your face feel anything but oily or dry. It’s still important to exfoliate, slough away dead skin cells, dirt and oil and leave your face feeling fresh and ready to absorb moistures. It is hard enough trying to find a face wash product that is not laced with chemicals that could cause harm to you at a reasonable price, but for the budget conscious guy here’s a natural product you can try Bulldog Natural Skincare Face Wash for Men. Bulldog Natural skincare products never contain artificial ingredients, synthetic fragrances or ingredients from animal sources. This product helps with dry or oily skin and is a great facial wash for daily use. I use it myself. I naturally have oily skin and a lot of facial cleansers dry my face out. This face wash does not dry up your face and is gentle enough to make your face feel fresh and clean. This face wash definitely does its job properly and I highly recommend you try it.
