Coveteur LogoThe Best Indie Brands To Support This Holiday Season

Every year in late November, around the start of the holiday shopping season, talk of “shopping small” picks up. But have you ever considered what it really means to support independently owned businesses? In the beauty industry’s corporate landscape, parent companies with extensive funding tend to dominate the scene, with the resources to run large-scale campaigns, and attract the attention of influencers and celebrities. Sadly, the odds are stacked against the little guys.

Skincando founder shares expert tips on summer skin care

Sara Damelio

A trip to the beach just wouldn’t be the same without the sweet smell of sunscreen. We lather it on throughout the summer months, knowing it is supposed to protect from UVA/UVB rays, and keep our fingers crossed that we will avoid the dreaded bright red burn.

But according to the American Academy of Dermatology, most individuals only apply roughly 25 to 50% of the amount of sunscreen that is recommended for avoiding skin cancer and early aging.

Sara Damelio, CEO of DC-based skincando and licensed holistic esthetician, has offered some of her knowledge to help everyone have a better relationship with their skin, and a safer summer overall. Here’s a hint: if sunscreen is not the first thing you put in your suitcase on your way to the beach, it better be a key component of your daily vacation routine.
