My first word was pretty. Isn’t that fitting for someone in the beauty industry?
I spent 21 years as a hair and make-up artist and loved every minute of it. It was such a joy to watch women look into the mirror and see the best version of themselves.
You do not have to sacrifice your health for the sake of beauty.
A Lyme disease diagnosis five years ago turned my world upside down in many ways. I became too sick to continue freelancing, so I dove head first into researching my disease. My doctor had me read Clean, Green, and Lean and I realized that 99.9% of the products I’d been using on my clients (and myself!) were super toxic. Did they play a part in my decline in health? My doctors think so.
Slowly but surely, I replaced everything…my make-up and hair products, household cleaners, bed linens, underwear (LOL)…you name it. It has been tons of fun trying out all of the new clean beauty products on the market and trying to find the best replacements for my tried and true staples. If you want to know what I am currently using, check out my Best of Clean Beauty post. I update it regularly to reflect my newest finds.
My friends actually joke and ask W.W.S.D. for “What Would Sherry Do?” so I created this blog to share everything I’ve learned and everything I love with you. I hope you find the answers you’re looking for.
