    Truly enjoy your blog. I myself am fond of organics as well. And truly there are some many beneficial tips here. How about more Complexion evening remedies? The skin on my face used to be one color when I was in my elementary years, now it seems to be all over the place (I am in High School) Does skin normally return to normal after the teenage years?

    I am glad you liked my blog:)

    You have to follow a good skincare routine regardless of your age. Make sure that you cleanse, exfoliate(once a week), tone and moisturize at least twice a day. DO NOT skip your sunscreen lotion even if its cloudy outside. Sunburn could result in uneven skin tone. Try and eat lots of citrus fruits and berries and rub lemon or any citrus fruit or berry on your face, rinse off after ten minutes and follow with a sunscreen lotion/cream.
