When I was younger, it was all about the scented lotions, name brand skin & hair products, and box colors. I wanted to learn how to beat my face with makeup so I could hide the flaws and color my hair every two months and never cut it so it was longer.
Fast forward to a budget and chemical-free conscious individual, I no longer felt the urge to do all those crap. I also realized that I am allergic to artificial scents like my mother. Growing up, I have come to the conclusion that I want to add years to my life both inside and out, pretty much to look & feel as young as I possibly can. I ditched the name brands, chemical loaded products with ingredients I cannot even pronounced, and being minimal when it came to my routine.
The best secret to a youthful glow is to not be afraid to butter up your body from head to toe. Exfoliate and moisturize is my beauty motto.
