My Skincare Philosophy
I really believe that what we put on our body shouldn't be dangerous, unnatural, or toxic. I believe skincare should be highly effective through things like clay, oil, charcoal, fruit acids, and vitamins.
Did you know? Eye and face creams can release formaldehyde on your skin which wreaks havoc on your immune system. Your body lotions can have trace amounts of toxins suffocating your skin. Your lipsticks can contain phthalates which are potential endocrine disruptiors. Your mascara can have carbon black which has been linked to a ton of health issues. This is just the tip of it.
Our beauty routines should be nourishing our bodies, not exposing them to potentially harmful materials, chemicals and metals.
Why Does Skincare Matter?
The real - real is mom's hormones get put through the ringer while having babies. I constantly get asked about nutrition around balancing hormones, which is a huge part. However, as women what we are putting on our skin has such an effect on our hormones. That is why I decided to help direct woman to products that are safe for them and actually work!
Skin is the largest organ of your body and it is porous. Basically this means it absorbs whatever you put on it. The American Journal of Public Health looked into the skin's absorption rates, it showed that the skin absorbed an average of 64% of what was put on it. Ya'll, that is why it matters what we put on our skin.

Yall I just am a “less is more” kind of person. My hairstylist is constantly teasing me that I expect him to cut my hair in a way that it air dries looking styled. AND he is right. I guess ultimately my outlook, “it has to be simple” carries through to my skincare and beauty routines. Ultimately, I would never recommend a product that I myself would not find the time to use. If something doesn’t work you better believe I am not taking the time to use it.
