There has been a movement towards safer beauty, led by "the little guys" who care a lot. Many people are fired up over being limited to purchasing what the big beauty conglomerates offer, and conscious beauty companies are popping up all over, making change, leading a charge and producing their own safe alternatives to give consumers other options. They are sharing research about the potentially hazardous effects of ingredients in products we use every day. We know that the European Union has banned around 1400 chemicals from being used in cosmetics, skincare and household goods because of potentially dangerous side effects. The United States has banned only 11. So with more and more great options available combined with all the news about products being so harmful, why can it be so hard to make the switch? Performance. I definitely know what it's like to discover a product that works exactly like you had hoped and dreamed. The clouds part and the angels sing. And after that, it's . . .
When you have adult acne and the signs of aging are creeping up on you, wouldn't it be really great if there was a one stop shop for treatment of both? Keeping a simple routine is important for my lifestyle. I want a single regimen that does it all, and better yet, a single product. Is that even possible?

Retinol is a derivative of vitamin A, and a powerful ingredient for treating both acne and signs of aging (e.g., lines, dark spots and dehydrated skin). So why is it considered a skin must-have by both clean beauty enthusiasts and dermatologists alike? Retinol works by promoting cellular turnover, which treats both acne and aging. As the top layers of skin renew, younger looking skin is exposed. As this process occurs, acne-causing bacteria is also removed from the surface of the skin. As dead skin cells are removed, the complementary products you use are allowed to function to their maximum potential. Dead skin . . .
We have options! Lots of options. Options about what goes on our skin and in our bodies. Gone are the days when we were at the mercy of drugstores and department stores for our beauty products. There are clean and green beauty companies popping up all over, allowing the conscious consumer to make educated decisions about what goes on her face and body. This is why when you have a choice of where to spend your money, consider staying away from these items that won't do you a lick of good: Products Without Clinical Results. There are A LOT of green beauty companies out there. Anyone can mix essential oils in their basement or make soap in their bathtub. And they probably smell amazing and might even moisturize your skin. But take a step back and think about what you are looking for out of your skincare regimen....probably something that softens wrinkles, lightens pigmentation, reduces redness, gets rid of acne, etc. There are ingredients that are known to produce these kinds of . . .
One of the greatest lessons I've learned is about the power of plants for beautiful, clear skin. I often think back to the days when my skin was red, bumpy and dull, and how much time and money I wasted trying to fix it. My methods were desperate and not well thought out. I was trying to remedy 10 years of damage by buying products filled with nasty chemicals. I wanted a quick fix without a lot of work, and it turned out to be a very long and painful process. To help the next woman from making the same mistakes, I want to share my favorite plant-based skincare regimen. It completely changed my skin in more ways than I was even hoping! The system, made by EVER Skincare, is a clinical grade, clean line of products made to help minimize the signs of aging. It's customizable for all skin types (which is why it finally beat my acne). But there's so much more to it. Read on to learn why this system will change YOUR skin and YOUR confidence too. Reason 1: They Work This is probably the . . .
