Planet Friendly Skin Habits

There are a lot of promises out there from the skincare industry that disconnect us from what may be the most important thing to remember. Our skin reflects the health of our environment. Whether it’s from the stress of our work, the pollution in our air, or the constant relocation we have to do. Each aspect of our atmosphere will show up in our skin and the changes are often not in our control. So what can we do? Our planet’s health is in big trouble and that health scare not only makes the future of our planet feel uncertain, but also the immediate impact it has on our health.

As you can imagine, it’s a bit heartbreaking to get reminded once again that your body’s signaling was off. Or maybe I was just so convinced that I was doing everything right that I created a fun narrative in my mind that when you follow a specific formula, you can get the expected end result. That’s when it hit me. I have spent my entire career educating clients that it’s not that simple, yet I still couldn’t really comprehend it for my own ability to conceive. The parallel inspired me to share my story so it can hopefully inspire you when it seems like you’ve done everything for your skin but the result is still not what you expected.
