 The Things We Do

When it comes to beauty and self care, we've heard the phrase THE THINGS WE DO echoed from one woman to another, like a secret password to womanhood. Founder Vanessa Lee uses it in reference to all the crazy things we have heard other women do, or have done ourselves for the sake of refinement. Women have plucked, waxed, cramped, squeezed, lasered, poked, and birthed. The Things We Do wants you to know that they will help guide you to safe and effective options meant exactly for you with natural intention. The Things We Do is a beauty concept bar where healthy skin and facial balance are aligned.
