My skincare recommendations primarily focus on naturally healing acne. But I began to receive requests from readers whose skin concerns were not acne, but aging, irritation or dryness. If that is you, let me point you to this plant-powered skincare regimen from Enessa. The formulator, my amazing friend Michelle, is a skincare alchemist. An L.A. esthetician, Michelle works with A-list clients who I can’t say because they asked her privacy. Otherwise I would be name-dropping all over this post.

Ditch any SPF product containing chemical sunblock ingredient, such as avobenzone, octisalate, or oxybenzone. These toxic ingredients are linked to hormone disruption. Instead, choose a non-toxic mineral sunblock. I use MyChelle Sunscreen (perfect for acne-prone skin) and Badger Baby Sunscreen. I also create a simple DIY Sunscreen by mixing a dash of zinc oxide powder (an active ingredient for non-toxic sunblock) into my moisturizer. Just use a dash or you will end up with a whitened face!
Tampons contain harmful bleaches and dioxins that are absorbed through the vaginal tissue. I am a proud convert to a non-toxic menstrual cup. No leaks, clean sheets, and ideal for athletic activities.
