I've spent fifteen years as a makeup artist and natural beauty expert. Talking to women, teaching them, and holding their faces in my hands has taught me that the most beautiful people I know radiate something special which reflects balance, happiness, and nourishment.
Achieving this balance is to accept that it's a lifelong journey. One part of this balance is considering what we put on and in our bodies, which, when done wisely, makes us more equipped to handle the stresses of life. This ability is vital, as stress can negatively impact all of the systems of the body. And since our skin is our largest organ, in order to look good, we MUST feel good.
Connecting to nature on every level is really important to my stress reduction, self-care, and wellness practices. Here are some of my favorite ways that I take care of myself every single day.
