5 Ways Your Skin Is Trying to Tell You Something

Even after I switched to green beauty products, my skin acted up. It still sometimes got irritated and angry when I tried new products. When I switched fully over to being gluten-free, my skin went through a little detox. When I tried the Whole30, my face (and body) gave me a little push back. When I went off of birth control, my skin pretty much yelled at me for four months. Even when I don’t drink enough water, I see more visible fine lines... Read More
