Soothing Homemade Moisturizer Recipe
I have been struggling with my skin since I can remember, and getting older hasn't helped any. This is why I research herbs and plants so much so I can try to heal my acne-prone skin without using chemicals.

Some are blessed with beautiful skin! Unfortunately, I am not one of them. Sigh.
