Well here it is… another issue of clean eating magazine including my superfoods face mask featured on the cover. You want to eat your superfoods, but did you know they can be just beneficial on your face and body? Give it a try and let us know what you think.
There was a lot of great feedback from the last issue and it seems we’ve got people all over north america swapping out their deodorants and antiperspirants for the au-naturel kind. Now don’t go throwing out all kinds of expensive beauty products in favor of what’s in your fridge, that’s wasteful. But slowly and surely you can live clean and cruelty free in every way and we’re happy to help you do it!
