3. Why Mushrooms Are Making a Cameo in Your Skin Care Products

Mushrooms are the latest wonder ingredient popping up in skin care products – and for good reason. They are a nutrient-rich powerhouse that’s been used for centuries in traditional Chinese medicine for their medicinal value. In terms of benefits for the skin, mushrooms are known to help reduce visible redness, calm sensitive skin and irritation and contain powerful anti-inflammatory ingredients that ultimately leave your skin looking bright and hydrated.

Below are a few choices of skin care products that all contain some form of mushroom (or multiple versions) to combat a wide range of skin concerns including improved moisture retention, protection against environmental aggressors and calming down inflammation.

5. On The Record: The Giving Keys’ Founders On The Company’s Next Big Reveal

The Giving Keys started out as a jewelry company, focused on keys that have words engraved into them. Since then, it has grown to be bigger, better and even more stylish than it already was. Their pieces are affordable and are not just necklaces either . The brand has now expanded to include earrings, bracelets, graphic tees, key chains and, according to the founders, “so much more to come.”

We got a chance to visit The Giving Keys’ downtown Los Angeles studio, where we met the founder, Caitlin Crosby, and the president, Brit Gilmore, to learn more about their journey that brought them from casual friends in the entertainment industry to business partners (and #GirlsBosses) helping others’ starting their own journeys too.
