  • Philosophy Purity
  • St. Ive's Apricot Scrub
  • Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser
  • Biore Revitalize 4 in 1 Foaming Cleanser

Snack often? Snack on these YUMMY treats for HEALTHY skin


These  Elle's Healthy Skin: Feed your complexion tasty treats are yummy and very accessible. I will sure to include them in my every other day diet =)

  • Salmon!  plump + youthful looking skin
  • Sunflower seeds!  antioxidants + reduce acne scars and  reduces appearance of wrinkles
