Do you know what you're putting on your skin and into your body?
There is a rising pandemic of sensitivity and health issues related to consistant use of fragrance, preservatives, and toxins.
I struggled with sensitive skin and periorial dermatitis for years. It was embarassing standing in front of audiences educating on skincare when my skin was inflammed. I became obssessed with learning about skin function, ingredients, diet and thier effects on skin. I made it my mission to help the millions that are on a constant hunt for healthy solutions.
I invite you to join me on the journey to cleaning up your beauty and wellness routine! Let's do this :)
Beauty. is. health.
