How To Get Rid Of Acne Part 1 (Nutritional Solutions)

This post is the first of a 3 part series focused on how to get rid of acne. Check out Part 2 (all about lifestyle factors) and Part 3 which will cover topical solutions for acne. As a teenager/young adult, I was prescribed all sorts of pills and topical creams for acne. You name it, I’ve more than likely tried it at some point. Some of these treatments worked for a little while and some didn’t work at all. But none of them were a true solution to my problem, as they didn’t address the underlying issues that were causing...

Natural Deodorant 101

When I first learned about the yucky and potentially dangerous ingredients found in conventional deodorant (aluminum, parabens and phthalates – oh my!), I knew I couldn’t continue to use it. The first place I turned was grocery store brands. I tried many of them with little to no success. As much as I wanted them to work, they just didn’t do the trick (far from it – none of them gave me lasting odor protection and I even developed a natural deodorant rash from a few of them). In the midst of my search for the perfect natural deodorant, I...

Oil Cleansing Method (How To Do It And Why It Works)

As an oily-skinned and acne-prone teenager, I grew up thinking that harsh = better when it came to cleansers.

My skin would always feel super dry after a wash, but soon afterwards it would be overcome with unnatural amounts of oil/grease. It wasn’t until much later that I learned why. By drying my skin out with harsh...

How To Use Activated Charcoal

Activated Charcoal is one of skincare’s best kept secrets. And since it has so many uses that aren’t talked about too often, I really wanted to show you guys how to use activated charcoal! My first experience with activated charcoal (AC) happened a few years ago when I came down with a nasty bout of food poisoning. Instead of seeing a doctor or taking medicine, I decided to consult Dr. Google on what to do. I probably typed in “natural remedies for food poisoning” or something like that. One of the first things that popped up was activated charcoal (charcoal...

Harmful Ingredients In Sunscreen And How To Prevent Sun Damage Naturally

I used to spend a LOT of time in the sun. Between competitive swimming and water polo in high school, life guarding nearly every summer as a teenager, and years of shameless sun bathing in an all-out effort to become the darkest version of myself possible, I’ve definitely had more than my fair share of sun exposure. Looking back on my years of reckless sun worshiping, I kick myself. Not just for spending more than a healthy amount of time in the sun, but more so for not paying any attention to all of the harmful ingredients in sunscreen that...
