In my private practice, I focus on treating skin conditions naturally. I treat a variety of skin conditions that range from hormonal acne to autoimmune psoriasis. I find that naturopathic medicine can be very effective in treating a variety of skin conditions, and can be used in combination with conventional medicine.
For my skincare regime, I buy organic and eco-friendly products. My philosophy is don’t put products on your skin unless you would eat them!
Here are my three top skincare products that hail from California, a state known for sunshine, beautiful people, and organic skincare products.
1. Josie Maran 100% Organic Argan Oil: Argan oil (aka liquid gold) comes from the kernels of the argan tree that is found in Morocco. It can be used on the skin, hair and nails- making it a wonderful multi-purpose product. Argan oil can be beneficial for both dry or oily skin. Individuals with oily skin may be afraid to use oil on their skin, but argan oil can actually suppress sebum and decrease acne flares.

2. Earth tu Face Skin Stick: A velvety smooth face/lip/body stick that contains geranium and vetiver. If you have dry skin, this is the stick for you. It’s one of the best lip balms I’ve tried- very hydrating, healing, and has a wonderful herbal smell. The package is so cute- zero plastics and is compostable. The product also has non-GMO vitamin E.
3. May Lindstrom the honey mud and the blue cocoon: these are handmade skincare products that smell and look divine. The honey mud is a cleanser that contains honey, which has antibacterial properties . The blue cocoon is a beauty balm that contains blue tansy, which helps to calm irritated skin.
