The journey to clear skin isn’t easy when you’re on a roller-coaster through basement city kitchens, high-altitude mountain abodes, jungle tree houses, countless airports, highways, cars and buses. With fluctuating levels of stress and climate, my skin has truly experienced all levels of confusion and agitation.
I’ve tried to cover the monsters with many magic potions, from chemical-laden products in fancy bottles to creams and serums by the most natural companies on the market. All were expensive fixes to a never-ending problem. I’ve given every treatment under the sun a go, including facials, microdermabrasion, skin peels and acupuncture, herbal remedies and a variety of supplements. Most have a time and place.
But why not create our own beauty arsenals? It’s both empowering and exciting to heal and nourish the skin using foods from our own kitchens and gardens. Taking this path will help us all reduce waste, save money and also save time.
