In this episode of Mind Body Beauty, I talk with Vanessa Breden from Transformations Beyond Beauty about her wellness journey, her thoughts on what Beyond Beautiful really means and her tips for choosing and using make-up (especially for those of us with sensitive skin or skin issues like acne and rosacea)

Vanessa owns a Wellness Studio called Transformations Beyond Beauty. She’s a personal trainer, Pilates instructor, make-up artist, nutritional medicine student and wellness advocate.

Over the years Vanessa has transformed her own health, learning to successfully manage the debilitating symptoms of Hashimotos Thyroiditis and Fibromyalgia without medication.
