I find that as I approach my mid-50s, my skin and body are getting more and more sensitive to what I put on them. Over the past year, I’ve been making an effort to incorporate and use clean, safe beauty products in my life in order to reduce my exposure to toxic chemicals. In doing so, my allergies have improved, I feel mentally clearer and physically better, and I know exactly what I’m putting on my skin. I don't want to compromise on my health or the quality and performance of my beauty and skincare products, which is why I'm excited to share some amazing clean beauty products I use to help me look and feel 10 years younger.

Erin has been writing a mix of beauty and wellness content for Who What Wear for over four years. Prior to that, she spent two and half years writing for Byrdie. She now calls Santa Monica home but grew up in Minnetonka, Minnesota, and studied writing, rhetoric, and communication at University of Wisconsin, La Crosse. She studied abroad in Galway, Ireland, and spent a summer in L.A. interning with the Byrdie and Who What Wear family. After graduating from UW, she spent one year in San Francisco, where she worked as a writer for Pottery Barn Kids and PBteen before moving down to L.A. to begin her career as a beauty editor. She considers her day-to-day beauty aesthetic very low-maintenance and relies on staples like clear brow serum (from Kimiko!), Lawless's Lip Plumping Mask in Cherry Vanilla, and an eyelash curler. For special occasions or days when she's taking more meetings or has an event, she'll wear anything and everything from Charlotte Tilbury (the foundations are game-changing), some shimmer on her lids (Stila and Róen do it best), and a few coats of the best mascara-type product on earth, Surratt's Noir Lash Tint.
