Skin care has always been a part of Erica Ndlovu’s self-care practice. “In the evenings I like to take my time applying serums—it makes for a relaxing end to the day,” says the goop junior associate beauty editor. “With oily, acne-prone skin, I’ve always had to pay extra attention.” As initially soothing and stress-unwinding as Ndlovu’s skin-care routine was, she never saw the results she hoped for. “It started becoming more tedious and less about self-care,” she says.
After joining goop, she slowly replaced her conventional products with clean ones.
