This very same philosophy also applies to my approach to beauty. I am a big aficionado for the natural look: that bare face that telegraphs unfussy cool. My makeup is always minimal, with the exception of the [very] occasional kohl rim around the eyes. But i have a confession: i was not genetically blessed with a perfect complexion. It's always been one of my biggest struggles and obsessions. Ever since i can remember, i've enviously (and awkwardly) over-stared at those girls with that ideal dewy, glowing, blemish-free, naturally unflawed skin. I'll take, and need, all the help i can get. My skin is incredibly sensitive and will break out at the mere thought of trying a new product so i have to be really careful. The Seventh Generation serums are all-natural, plant-based, as well as free of harsh preservatives, which won me over from the get-go. Skin care is a real challenge for me because of my irritability so i need to be extremely rigorous about it. Going to bed without removing my makeup is something i could never, ever consider.
If Seventh Generation's skin boosting serum could help me achieve looking better as a stripped-down version of myself, i couldn't pass it up. Because at the end of the day, my natural style secret, my strategy for looking effortless, is to simply aim for a better, elevated version of myself. And here's a little fun video i made to demonstrate all of what i just talked about.
