Jordan Younger is an L.A. blogger behind the revered wellness and lifestyle blog The Balanced Blonde, but that’s not the only thing she’s famous for. Two years ago, she transitioned away from being vegan—a move that shocked and even angered some of her followers. In her book Breaking Vegan, she chronicled her struggle with orthorexia, a self-destructive fixation with “clean” eating. “It’s time to advocate a lifestyle that doesn’t involve restriction, labeling or putting ourselves into a box. I am extremely passionate about eating ethically and eating whole, plant-based foods from the earth…but that doesn’t mean that living life in moderation is a sin. It’s a beautiful thing,” she wrote.
Today, she shares with her audience what it’s like to live “label-free” and the healthy, balanced lifestyle that ensues. Jordan has learned that balance, variety, label-free and radical honesty are the things she prefers in her own life and likes to share with people. During her recent visit to the DermStore studio, she discussed how this newfound lifestyle and self-love translate to what she puts on her skin.
