Love your Skin with 100% Natural Clothing

I’ve been asked by enough people now "does this has bamboo in it” and "can this be made without spandex.” I’m finally writing the ultimate shopping guide for finding the most natural Yana Dee clothing. Not only is this best for your skin, is also good for the planet!

If you are already convinced, click here to skip the reading and start shopping "The Most Pure & Natural Yana Dee" collection.

What you put on your skin can change how it looks and feels. Since you probably put more clothes on your skin than any other product, picking out the right clothes to wear is key to keeping skin healthy- or bringing it back when an issue arises. Tough love isn’t a good strategy on eczema, acne, or rashes. Practice soft love with all-natural, non-irritating clothes instead.

May Erlewine: an Interview

Activism Ethical Fashion Advise Fashion Revolution Interviews Music What to Wear

May Erlewine: an Interview

A: So I wanted to ask you, who or what inspires your choice in clothing? 

M: I like a lot of vintage stuff. I’m always trying to find things that are between the ‘40’s and ‘70s eras. I’m always looking at vintage clothing and getting ideas from what people used to wear, and then I mix that with the now trendy stuff. I like looking at the new clothes that people are making, to see what young people are wearing. So I feel like I end up doing some weird combo of what people used to do, and what people are doing now. And it's fun. I just love clothes. And I love colors, and thinking about putting stuff together. I don’t have a main influence, though. I think [my style] mostly just comes from really liking clothes.

A: Where are a few of your favorite places to get clothes from?

M: I like to thrift. That’s my favorite thing to do, and vintage shops, that’s the place I go the most. I love going to Yana Dee, of course! It is really cool to see what you are doing here, because it is so ethical and the fabrics are so beautiful. And [Yana Dee] was one of the first people I knew that did the re-fab stuff, with vintage fabrics and newer styles, which I’ve always admired and loved. I shop on Etsy, I go to Goodwill. I like getting the deals.
