My Skincare Secrets
Most people that know me know about my obsession with plants. I’ve lost count of how many plants are currently in my home. They have such powerful qualities, so when I had the chance to partner with BioClarity, I was over the moon! Below are my top 3 skincare secrets that changed my skin for the better:
1. Skincare Products
I recently started using the BioClarity 3-step skin clearing system that uses the power of plants along with their new HYDRATE Skin Smoothie. Since my teen years, I’ve struggled with acne and overall scarring and redness. It became such a stressor in my life and I tried so many products that would only work temporarily. It was a constant battle trying to cover my skin with makeup. Since using BioClarity, I’ve been able to decrease the amount of makeup I’ve been wearing and I have definitely noticed my skin feeling much more balanced, clear and nourished. This system has clinically been proven to attack the bacteria that causes acne before it even begins and helps reduce redness and pore size as well as soothes and calms the skin, all results I have noticed on my self! My favorite aspect of these products is obviously its plant-based products such as chamomile, green tea, cucumber, oat kernel, licorice root and Floralux, all things I would totally put both inside and outside of my body. Floralux is my absolute favorite- it’s BioClarity’s exclusive and innovative plant-based ingredient made with chlorophyll, which gives it its true green plant-tinted color. These products are 100% vegan, cruelty-free, paraben-free, gluten-free and sulfate-free, so it really doesn’t get better than that!
2. What you’re putting inside of your body
This one can be a bit tricky because everyone’s bodies are different, but this is what has worked for me. Changing the way that I eat has done miracles for my skin. The most difficult thing to remove from my diet was dairy because I love cheese and ice cream, but I’ve found many dairy alternatives that I’ve loved and incorporated into my cooking and snacking. Additionally, I started looking at ingredients in packaged foods and have tried as much as possible to choose foods that have real ingredients, avoiding any processed foods or preservatives.
3. Mental health
I think it’s safe to say that a lot of my acne showed up during really stressful times in my life, becoming a vicious cycle of stress and unhappiness. The most important thing I’ve changed that has helped my skin is finding time to calm my mind. My meditation practice allows me to breathe, reset and slow things down. A holistic approach to changing anything about yourself is honestly the best direction to take.
