(Researchers estimate that 32 million Americans have food allergies, including 5.6 million children under age 18. That’s one in 13 children, or roughly two in every classroom.)*

Let’s be real… Healthy skin feels like the elusive Holy Grail sometimes. I am often asked, “What can I do to improve my skin?” The answer, of course, is not one silver bullet.

Here are 5 real-life tips to help you improve your skin, starting right now.
I’m very low maintenance, and for the longest time, if I washed my face once a day, that was a bonus! I started using Story over 2 years ago, and I just love how it fits into my busy life. I use the Cleanser in the shower, apply the Serum as my hair dries and slather on the Moisturizer as I walk out of the bathroom. It’s easy and effortless.
Entrepreneurs at heart, we took a step back and asked, “Why not us?” And so with my husband's support, I created Story.

Add a touch of highlighter to the tops of your cheekbones, the center of your forehead, down the center of your nose, on your cupid’s bow (right above your lips and below your nose), and your chin to look fresh and vibrant, bringing out that inner glow.
Be realistic with your expectations. Don’t attempt to incorporate everything in one day, or you’ll set yourself up for failure. Seek progress rather than perfection. If you see improvement, stay the course. Try tweaking things like diet, exercise, water consumption, changing hair care products, etc., until you find a combination that works for you.
