by - March 10, 2011

So as cliche as my title for this post care is a must for everyone! Especially one that takes beauty and health seriously. A lot of us, including myself, have yet to find out what exactly works for our skin. I find that anything that is natural works the best in comparison to anything with harsh chemicals, dyes, additives, as well as fragrances. I've researched online as well as asking many other beauties, what works best for you? I have also come across natural home remedies that is not just good for the stomach but also good for the skin! Here are the list of what these lovely ladies use to keep their skin healthy, as well as a list of recipes for skin using food items found in your own home!

Currently I am using Biore products, their warming anti- blackhead cleanser, toner, as well as night serum moisturizer.
