My Faves

So, you made the switch to natural skin care and beauty products. Go you! Here you’ll find my go-to brands for clean beauty and natural skincare. As I discover new products that consistently work for me, I will update the list. Conversely, if old favorites no longer do it for me, I will swap them out for new loves. I said all that to say this: Check back often! This page will be in a constant state of flux.

Important: My skin type is combo (face), extremely dry (body) and sometimes annoying (hyper-pigmentation with the occasional food-related eczema flare on my back and legs). Hormonal acne is the occasional adventure as well, but switching to a plant-based diet has alleviated much of that. My product choices reflect all of this. Please purchase skin care products designed for your personal skin type. If you need help understanding your skin’s unique needs, don’t hesitate to contact me. I’m not an esthetician or a dermatologist, but I will help in all the ways I can.
