About Me

Here, you’ll discover a treasure trove of tips, herbs, and creams that have the power to transform your skin into a radiant masterpiece. I’m here to share my expertise and help you feel gorgeous in your skin.

I’m Yirlene Mertens, your go-to person for all things clean, organic, and downright fabulous in the world of beauty. I’m truly grateful for your trust in me and my expertise.

So, what’s the deal with my little corner of the internet, you ask? Well, picture this: a blend of my nerdy love for dissecting ingredient lists and my passion for creating a skincare empire. Intrigued? You should be!

Back in the day, I was all about political science. But then life threw me a curveball, and I found myself diving headfirst into the world of aesthetics. Fast forward a bit, and here I am, a certified aesthetician with big dreams and an even bigger love for all things skincare.

My journey into clean beauty? Let’s just say it started with a curious Google search about vitiligo and spiraled into a full-blown obsession with what we put on our skin. And boy, oh boy, did that rabbit hole lead me to some eye-opening discoveries!

I’ve been around the block in this industry, from European spas to collaborating with labs in France and the USA. And let me tell you, blending European know-how with American innovation? It’s like creating skincare magic.

But enough about me – let’s talk about YOU. If you’re here, you’re on a mission to turn back the clock and reclaim your skin’s youthful radiance. Whether you’re battling fine lines or simply seeking a moment of self-care, my blog is your roadmap to skincare success.

So, why should you read my posts? Because you are an integral part of this journey towards timeless beauty. Dive into my blog, soak up the knowledge, and get ready to watch the years melt away. Oh, and don’t forget to say hello—I can’t wait to embark on this skincare journey with you!

Currently, I split my time between Austin, Texas, a city I love for its vibrant vibe, and Southeast Asia, mainly Thailand and Malaysia, where I constantly discover new fragrances and beauty elixirs.

And before you go any further, a little heads-up: as a non-native English speaker, I humbly ask for forgiveness if you happen to stumble upon any grammar quirks. Consider it a charming reminder of my global perspective!
