For the past 10 years, I have been buying, trying, and often returning hundreds of beauty products to try to combat my various skin issues, which include acne, dryness, allergies and sensitivity. I have tried everything from drugstore Cetaphil (which I'm allergic to) to a $100 bottle of SKII (nothing special). As a result of never getting ideal results and also learning more about the benefits and risks when it comes to putting chemicals on your skin, I try to focus on more natural beauty products and solutions but also am realistic about what I can afford and not obsessing over the "natural"ness of a product.
I also enjoy cooking delicious, healthy meals (with plenty of indulgences mixed in) for myself, my hubby, and our two little taste-testers (a Cairn Terrier and poochon), and working out, whether it's running, yoga, pilates, or the gym. I'm working toward a more balanced, healthy lifestyle every day.
