Real talk time… the stress in my life has been a lot lately. My life has drastically changed within the last couple of months, and significantly within the last couple of weeks, in ways that I was not expecting.
Because of this, my routine has been completely derailed, I haven’t been working out as much, and my diet has been garbage. Add all of these things together and you’ve got a break out. I will say I love that I know exactly why my skin is mad at me and I can fix the problem instead of it just being angry because of all the toxic products I had used on it like it used to be in the past.
Anyway, I was going for a run yesterday, so I didn’t want to do a full face of makeup, but I also had some other errands to run and I wanted to cover up this breakout. All I’m wearing on the right is foundation, mascara, and gloss (and of course my skincare including primer). I’m not even wearing concealer! This foundation is literally life you guys. Let me know if you want to try some!
I’ve shared my back story and why I started this blog, but I haven’t shared that much about me personally. So, it’s sharing time!
💚 I have a 14 month old daughter who is literally my heart and soul.
💚 I am a certified secondary English teacher who has been blessed with the opportunity to stay home with my baby for a few years thanks to my business.
💚 I love planning and am addicted to planner supplies (give me ALL the stickers!!)
💚 My favorite food group is candy.
💚 I am a fiancé to a man I love with all my heart.
💚 I have two fur babies whom I adore.
💚 I absolutely love to do yoga and Zumba.
💚 I am passionate about the ingredients I put on my skin, on my child, and use in my home.
🤯 I am not a sales person.
🤯 I am not an ingredient guru (I’m still learning everyday!)
🤯 I am not a health freak.
🤯 I am not a makeup artist.
Sometimes people think I’m this all knowing, health crazed, makeup genius, rockstar sales person. I am a normal girl, learning how to be a mom for the first time, trying to be more conscious about the products my family uses, while sharing the green beauty movement with other women and helping them to reduce their toxic body burden! I love what I do and more than that I love that what I do allows me to be home with my little girl.
If any of this sounds intriguing to you, I’d love to just chat more. NO pressure, you don’t have to sell me your soul (even though I am a ginger..), I’d just love to share with you what it’s really like to do my job.
👇 Drop a fun fact or two about yourself below if you’d like to chat!
Hello everyone! 🤗 I am SO excited that you’re here and I am thrilled to have the opportunity to share more about the green beauty movement and what I’m learning with you!! 🙌🏽🙌🏽🙌🏽
My name is Jessica DeRico and I am a new mom of a little girl who is six months old. I have been aware of toxins and moving towards being toxin free for a while with things like hair products, bug spray, and sunblock. But the majority of the products in my life were toxic and I never really took the time to learn about the dangers hiding in these items. I honestly think I was living in blissful ignorance. My journey to live a more toxin free life really took off while we were pregnant for our little girl, Adeline Rae. I started to scrutinize everything going in, on, and around my body. I found some terrifying things in my makeup and other products and started looking into cleaner ones. Since then, we’ve been taking baby steps everyday to raise her toxin free, which is where we came up with the name, Raising Clean.
I invite you to join me as I embark to share my new passion about green beauty, fitness, clean eating, safe products for our families, and all things clean living! If there’s anything in particular you’re interested in learning more about, drop me a comment.
