About Candace


Hello there!

Thanks for stopping by to see about little ol’ me. I’m Candace. I work full-time in Las Vegas as a creative copywriter and communications specialist. Outside of business hours you can find me in cyberspace posting pictures of green things or hiking up a mountain with my tripod.

It started with an olive, now I’m here!

Allergies. Eczema. Chronic rhinitis. Sensitive skin. There’s a reason why those in my immediate circle refer to me as a “delicate flower.” My current interest in holistic health and green beauty was the natural progression of my desire to avoid the harmful side effects of certain medications and irritating skincare products.  When I learned of the healing powers of olive leaf back in 2009, that research paved the way for my slight obsession with all things non-toxic, safe and sustainable. Recently diagnosed with uterine fibroids, my interest in natural healing has only intensified.

A Deeper Shade of Green

My only goal on ConsciouslyCandace.com is to make your transition to better beauty and holistic health a smooth one. Most important to me is that women of color find products and adopt practices that complement the many shades, textures and intricacies of our melanated skin. I’m here for you! 

Skin is the largest organ of the human body. Rubbing it down with toxic chemicals is so 1995. 

Connect with me in the way most comfortable for you. I’m mainly on Instagram, and best reached via email at CandySmithLV@gmail.com. If we share the same offline interests in professional writing, company culture, organizational leadership or business management, please connect with me on LinkedIn.

Be well!
