As the year comes to an end, I look back on all I’ve struggled with and overcome: a receding hairline and hair loss; intense perioral dermatitis flare ups; annoying acne; and dry/dehydrated and irritated skin. While there were many lows, there were also a lot of highs. And many of those highs were due to finding efficacious, nontoxic, green products to help ease me back towards healthy skin. Therefore, as we wrap up this year, I decided to outline down below in seven categories, including Dry Skin, Acne, Dermatitis, Brightening, Hair, Body, and Eye + Lip + Neck my favorite products from 2017…

It’s been almost three months since I was diagnosed with perioral dermatitis. In that time, as you may have read in, “How I Drastically Cleared Up And Improved My Perioral Dermatitis In Two Weeks.” I did a major overhaul of my skincare routine, diet, and lifestyle. If you haven’t read my first piece on perioral dermatitis, I highly encourage you to go back and read it. The article covers the basics of PD: symptoms, duration, causes, diagnosis and treatment, an in-depth breakdown on why I try to avoid irritating chemicals, essential oils (this I’m becoming slightly more lax on) and fragrances in…
