THE FACE BEHIND THE BLOG

Hi! I'm Marlee and started Sweet Health Nut back in 2011 when I began my journey toward a natural lifestyle.

I'm the web editor of an interior design and architecture magazine by day, and a health and wellness enthusiast at all times (blogger on evenings and weekends!)

I'm a health-conscious vegetarian, vegan flirt, skincare sampler, beauty junkie, acne fighter, yoga enthusiast, feminist and hopeless giggler who strives to enjoy every last drop life's sweetness.

{video} :: how food doc “hungry for change” will change your life

I just posted a new YouTube video inspired by the food documentary “Hungry for Change” because it had a massive impact on me. The doc is obviously about food and health, but the final message at the end of the documentary really struck a chord with me and connects EVERYTHING together. Seriously. It connects food,...
Salma Hayek Confesses: "I suffered from acne and depression"

Salma Hayek Confesses: “I suffered from acne and depression”

I think this is the first time I have ever seen an A-list celebrity (or any celebrity, for that matter) speak at any length about their emotional struggles with acne (though, as I mention below, I still wanted more). Sure, we’ve heard tid bits from Cameron Diaz and Kiera Knightly, but this is definitely the...

Orthorexia Nervosa - Taking Healthy Eating to the Extreme

Orthorexia Nervosa – Taking Healthy Eating to the Extreme

The following is a post that I made in February of 2011 on my Tumblr account. I wrote this when I was heading in the direction of a food and health obsession. Everything I wrote is still accurate and relevant, except my emotional and mental connection to eating has changed since then. I no longer...
DIY Face Mask: Cranberry + Greek Yogurt + EVOO + Honey

DIY Face Mask: Cranberry + Greek Yogurt + EVOO + Honey

I mentioned in a recent post that I really wanted to try using yogurt as a face mask since it contains lactic acid, which is a natural exfoliant. I saw this video from one of the beauty gurus I subscribe to on Youtube (AllThatGlitters21) and felt the need to share it right away! I’m definitely going...

Everyday Minerals – 7 Free Samples (Even to Australia! Wowee)

I’ve wanted to try out some new mineral makeup, but there’s one thing standing in my way: EVERYTHING IS SO OUTRAGEOUSLY EXPENSIVE IN AUSTRALIA! Whew, feels good to get that off my chest. I remembered that back home I had received some free samples from some awesome companies that want you to test out their...
Skincare Review: Clarisonic + OCM + Lerosett

Skincare Review: Clarisonic + OCM + Lerosett

I mentioned a few times in recent posts how I’ve totally abandoned all skincare products to let my skin balance itself out. I also felt like I was relying on products so much that it was causing me emotional stress. That’s why I decided to spend as little time in front of the sink and...
MUA Lisa Eldridge's Skincare Tips

MUA Lisa Eldridge’s Skincare Tips

I was totally captivated by this video. I love the fact that she has so many years of experience and has tried so many different products, so she really knows her stuff (besides the fact that she’s a makeup artist). I know, many of the products she talks about aren’t natural, but there are a...
Now Magazine's Ecoholic: Pimple-Fighting Tips

Now Magazine’s Ecoholic: Pimple-Fighting Tips

I love how “eco” health and “natural” health are so intertwined. The moment I started reading this article, I could tell that the author, Adria Vasil, knew what she was talking about. I’ve used many of the natural ingredients she suggests and can’t complain. The thing is, last time I tried them, my skin was...

There’s this post on zerozits.com called “How to Become an Acne Detective” and it has the most AMAZING list of ingredients, categorized in alphabetical order, and it indicates on a scale of 1-5 how comedogenic it...

Emotions and Acne: Part 3

I told my mom how I was feeling and that was the beginning of my healing process. Tracy from The Love Vitamin had a huge influence on my realization that when you have acne, it’s important to make sure you take care of your emotions. Not only because having acne can cause you to get depressed, but because...

Acne and Emotions: Part 2

What came first, the depression or the acne? I think it’s more complex than one simple answer. I know that I have a history of self-esteem issues, and when my skin was clear last year, those didn’t disappear. Sure, I felt much prettier and better about my appearance, but self-esteem runs deeper than just regarding...
