A few years back,
I started to get really problematic hormonal breakouts. So bad that I've had friends who hadn't seen me in awhile tell me that my acne has gotten better since they last saw me. The constant reminder made me more & more self-conscious over the years. I always wanted to hide. On top of that, nothing seemed to mix well with my combination/oily/acne-prone skin type. I’ve found recently that limiting the amount of chemicals I use in my skincare seemed to help restore that balance in my skin that I lost to stress and hormones during my years in college & grad school. My skin has gone through drastic changes in the past few years and I feel that the only way to obtain the best skin of your life is to give it lots of TLC (meaning no harsh chemicals). I try to use mostly non-toxic, organic skincare products.
I strive to be fully transparent in my reviews about what products work and don't work for my skin because in reality, the journey to perfect skin is not easy.
I cannot stress enough that along the journey to better skin & higher self-confidence, it's so important to not only treat yourself right but also to treat the environment right. Everything we do has an impact on the environment around us. With that being said, I try my best to promote cruelty-free products because ethical behavior is something that resonates within the core of who I am today.
So, stay tuned.
Yours truly, Megan.
