In the summer of 2014, I was sitting in my parents’ living room, flipping through my Pinterest feed.
It had been months since I’d worn anything but my favorite pair of jeans.
I was a millennial who’d been living in Los Angeles for nearly three years, and my parents had spent the last few years traveling, raising kids, and getting back to the basics.
But what I saw in the post-workout-frenzy era seemed to be the norm, and it wasn’t just a matter of getting the best out of my body: I was also looking for new ways to stay on top of my skin’s progress.
I had never before seen an article on how to get that best of both worlds, but I was intrigued.
What if there were some tips on how people could get better at getting and keeping the best of the two?
What if the two were really just one, even though they could be in conflict?
