Being "healthy" is most often defined by our diets, whether we’re drinking enough water or getting more fruits and vegetables on our plates. We spend a lot of money on only buying from the organic foods section, and spiralizing veggies in hopes to recreate healthy versions of our favorite meals. While we spend all this time and money on our clean, natural diets, we neglect to address the health aspect of the non-food related things we consume every day. The most common thing we tend to let slip from our minds when thinking of health is our skincare products. What you put on your body should be just as important as what you put into it, so here’s a list of 5 natural skincare brands Dermatologists are recommend.
