Your hands also need a helping hand
Are you someone who takes your hands for granted, thinking that they’re not as important as your face or your figure? Well, think about it for a minute. Do you use your hands to gesture when you’re speaking? Do you wave your hands in greeting, shake hands with others to show courtesy, or hold hands with a loved one to show—love? Unless you walk around with your hands in your pockets all the time, people are going to notice your hands, and if you’re not including them in your beauty regimen, they’re going to send a message that you’re getting older, even if your face says otherwise. Your..
When worlds (or eras) collide
Technology is great. What would we ever do without our microwaves, our computers, our smartphones, and all those other things that make life easier and more complicated at the same time?

But Gratiae has the most logical approach to skin care: take the best of ancient methods and combine with the best of modern science to create the ideal formula for rejuvenating ski..
When it comes to men’s skin, neglect is not an option
Historically, men haven’t always gone for the smooth, clean-shaven look. Facial hair was the predominant style for centuries, and who knows how—or why—some ancient guy got the idea to pick up something sharp and scrape all the hair off his face. Maybe he thought all that facial hair was too hot, or it got in the way when he was eating. Or maybe he wanted to recapture his boyish good looks. In any case, shaving became a daily ritual for all men who didn’t go for the hairy face look, and today’s man still follows that ritual, complaining all the way. Proper shaving techniques One of t..
Three Graces--the legend behind the legendary
Ancient civilizations—Greeks and Romans in particular--were known for being especially creative when it came to explaining natural phenomena such as the seasons, thunderstorms, the sun and the moon, and even love. According to stories from these cultures, everything that happened could be attributed to, or blamed on, an assemblage of major and minor gods and goddesses. Who’s their daddy? Each mythological deity had control on a specific element of Nature, but Jupiter was the head guy, according to the Romans. He was very powerful, but not always morally perfect, and he “begat” three..
The thermal approach to radiant skin

There are all kinds of ways to give yourself a warm glow, but have you ever thought about what a warm glow can do for your complexion?

The oil that isn’t an oil
  Jojoba is a funny name, and if you don’t know better, you might not say it right. The J is actually pronounced with an H sound, so you sort of laugh like Santa Claus—Ho Ho—then say Bah, like Ebenezer Scrooge. It’s a bit of a clash of traditional Christmas sentiments, when you think about it. But Jojoba is more than a funny name; jojoba oil is an ingredient in many Gratiae products, and for lots of very good reasons.   The wonder of jojoba oil   So jojoba oil is a product of seeds from the jojoba tree, but the actual truth is that it isn’t really an oil a..
