No matter if it’s dark circles after a restless night, puffiness after a few drinks or wrinkles after decades of laughter, the skin around your eye is usually the first to show signs of aging.

The time has finally arrived! Everyone’s favorite season, Fall – where we can spend some nights in the comforts of our couches, throw on a pullover hoodie and sweatpants to hide the extra pounds we’re all about to gain from all of the pumpkin spice lattes and holiday treats that we unabashedly bask in without any shame or regrets whatsoever. Everything will be hues of orange and auburn and we will be wearing layers of patterns and strutting the red and yellow leaf covered sidewalks as if it were a runway in Milan during Fashion Week. Such a versatile season, not warm but also not cold enough to hide indoors completely. As basic as this all may sound, it’s far from it – especially when it comes to your skin.

This morning, after waking up next to my fur baby, bestie, and buffalebrity, Barbara Jean. I flipped on the TV in time to hear the news that as of January 2020, the state of California will Ban Cosmetic Testing on Animals.As the owner of a small local business in the beauty industry, (renew bath + body located Elmwood Ave) I have made every attempt to educate and analyze the products sold at Renew. I am proud to say that all 40 product lines (skincare/makeup/bath + body) share my belief that products should be cruelty-free. ..........

Tom Akers was one of the first when he opened Renew Bath and Body on Elmwood Avenue in 2014.
He believes natural beauty products have evolved and are “just as good, if not better” than synthetic products.
His interest was originally piqued when his best friend was diagnosed with cancer, and her doctor said it might be linked to the aluminums in her deodorant. At that point, 20-plus years ago, he said he had no idea that what he put on his body could affect his health.
