Like many, my journey to a more natural beauty routine began with troubled skin. I had hormonal acne in high school and that soon became adult acne. Nothing I did really worked and it wasn’t until I took a hard look at both my beauty habits and diet that I was able to pinpoint any particular reasons to why my skin was so inflamed all the time.
After switching to a more wholesome diet of plants, lean proteins and select grains, I was able to clear up my skin a bit, but I couldn’t shake the persistent breakouts on my chin, cheeks and even forehead. They hurt horribly, took forever to heal, and left ugly scars behind.

When I finally dove into researching more natural skincare and makeup products and that was when the true changes began to happen. My skin became softer, smoother, and completely calm. Acne breakouts are now a totally rare occurrence and scarring is diminishing day by day. At 26, lines are barely visible.
Since I’ve been lucky enough to try and review many natural beauty products over the years, I thought it would be fun to share what’s worked for my skin.
Of course, check with your dermatologist or doctor if you’re unsure about using any of these methods and/or products as I’m not a doctor. I don’t know your skin like you and your doctor will, but this is what’s worked well for me (Post continues after gallery).
