If you are at the forefront of every burgeoning beauty trend known to womankind, you have probably read an article by Jasmine Garnsworthy at STYLECASTER, POPSUGAR, Allure, Refinery29, Racked and Byrdie.
Jasmine is the self-described “skincare-obsessed” founder of the natural beauty brand, The Buff. And if that weren’t enough - she’s also a freelance writer, editor, and content producer based in New York. In 2016, she summoned all of her beauty prowess to battle her own skin conditions and, in doing so, she helped others to follow suit. What started as a chronic acne outbreak led to a journey that transcended prescription creams, antibiotics, and expensive dermatologist appointments. Plunging deep into the world of clean and pure ingredients, ultimately led her to the creation of her own natural beauty brand.
Why we love it? The Buff is helping women take charge of their own beauty routine through personalized skincare with natural, clean and uncomplicated ingredients. Based on the results of an interactive skin quiz, The Buff will customize face and body oils that are perfectly formulated for your skin. And it gets better, the products are vegan-friendly, use the best quality cold-pressed and unrefined ingredients, and even lets you monogram and customize your packaging.
We agree with Jasmine, there is no such thing as one-size-fits-all when it comes to skincare and we believe that this also applies to those seeking to embrace a more sustainable life. There are no quick and magic solutions, knowledge is power and we can all start by implementing "Neu" simple decisions and actions in our daily life.
Find out how Jasmine is doing it.

SHOP THE STORY
Just days before the lockdown started, we visited the home of actress Kate Rockwell in historic Washington Heights. You might remember her from Legally Blonde or most recently as one of the Mean Girls on Broadway. However, these characters couldn’t be further from her true nature. She is a down-to-earth, brilliant woman who is not only incorporating more sustainable practices into her daily life, but also into the theater industry itself!
