My name is Stephanie, and welcome to Hello Glow!
I started Hello Glow in 2011 to give me a place to learn and share about the world of natural beauty I had recently discovered. As I got the hang of taking care of my body inside and out, I fell in love with do-it-yourself skin care and recipes that made my skin glow.
Along the way, Hello Glow became a community of natural beauty lovers. You guys are amazing!
Nowadays, I’m still testing out beauty recipes after the kids go to bed, as well as a certified aromatherapist who’s a little obsessed with essential oils and the author two books, Hello Glow and Essential Glow.
My promise to you
My mission is to give you the ideas, inspiration and tools – the secret weapons we’ve discovered through trial and error – to help you find your glow and be comfortable in your own skin. Because the journey to well-being can (and should) be simple and beautiful. I want you to feel the same way you do after a day at the spa: relaxed, inspired, at peace. Glowing.
