Recipes & Products for Healthy Skin

You might not know this but your skin is starving for moisture.

It’s using a special built in moisturizer, customized for you, named Sebum.

Ever notice how your hair becomes oily if you leave it unwashed for few days? That’s sebum. Sebum is an oily substance secreted by the sebaceous glands.

There are some things I just can’t make and don’t want to improve upon. This is one of those things.

I’m 31 and for some reason (probably hormones) my childhood acne has come back with vengeance. I have enlarged pores, blackheads, white heads, Pustules and (very large) Cysts. All of this has of course resulted in the scarring of my beautiful face. I have personally tried about every skin care product on the market since I was 14 years old. From the prescriptions, to the dollar store finds, to the latest and greatest green a white “acne solution” sold on TV. But nothing has worked…until now.
