Spiked Up DPT
All of us have little dirty secrets that we like to keep to ourselves. Here's MINE.
PICTURE THIS: an ancient beauty secret that costs a few bucks and is easily incorporated into your GRESSA Ritual.
STORY: Growing up in Eastern Europe, activated charcoal was a staple in our medicine cabinet. We used it to detox the digestive system and often used it to detox our skin.
WHAT IS IT: Charcoal is a centuries-old, unapologetically simple grime fighter with a knack for eliminating impurities, odors, and bacteria. Ancient Hindus purified water with it, Hippocrates used it to treat anthrax in 400 B.C., and now grooming brands are touting its benefits.
THE SCIENCE: When applied to the skin as a treatment, charcoal treats the skin with oxygen, opening up millions of tiny holes that act like magnets for junk. A.k.a. it is incredible as an anti-acne mask!
WHAT YOU NEED: Activated Charcoal capsules (any health foods store will have them).
DIRECTIONS: add 1 capsule to a teaspoon of your Dirty Pretty Things treatment. Apply as you normally would and wash off after 15-20 minutes.
And.... Watch your skin glow!

THE REDS. These are a lip hybrid perfection. Opaque and buildable enough to be a lipstick, glossy enough to be a stain. A light glossy coat or a full color [without running] if you scoop some up with your finger or a spatula. Either way, they are soft, non-sticky and perform all day long.
Treat lips with the moisture of a balm, the coverage of a lipstick, and the glow of a gloss. With shades ranging from subtle to statement, there’s a Lip Boost for every mood. Glam your pout with Gressa Lip Boost. Light, non-sticky and moisturizing, it feels like a balm yet looks like a gloss.
Presented in a black box, this makes a perfect gift for yourself or someone else.
Wear alone or over any lip color of your preference. Double as a blush.
