All opinions are mine alone. #HealthySkinSolutions #CollectiveBias Healthy skin seems to still elude us…even though we have a bazillion options nowadays, it seems like we still haven’t figured out the proper way to be clean. Ultimately, what I’ve learned is that bacteria isn’t necessarily always the bad guy. It’s actually a part of the human ecosystem, and sterility isn’t natural for our bodies. That’s why I was really…
