Aging Gracefully with Clean Beauty

It's my two-year "Jannyversary"; celebrating my toddler years of blogging...so what better topic than aging?!

I hate talking about "anti-aging" products because I'm not anti or against aging. I've spoken of my personal attachment to laugh lines but I totally understand wanting (needing) to combat the decline in our skin's elasticity, collagen, brightness, etc. due to factors other than the biological clock.

Environmental toxins, endocrine disorders, prescription medication, smoking, secondhand smoking, having kids, you name it; so many things these days can take a toll on our skin. So while I refuse to subscribe to any fountain of youth mentality, we can still acknowledge and manage maturing skin with natural products.
