    When doctors diagnosed Indie Lee, a happy-go-lucky New Yorker, with a rare brain tumor and only six months to live, Indie Lee did the unheard of: She turned her life sentence into a life calling. Upon discovering her tumor was likely the result of environmental factors, Indie found a new lease on life and decided to devote herself to crafting the Indie Lee Collection — an eco-friendly collection of all-natural skincare products that are sophisticated, stylish, safe and make a difference.
    As we near the start of the spring season, many of us are probably preparing to do some spring cleaning; we'll clean out our closets, vacuum the corners, change out the flannel sheets, and go through our beauty arsenal to see what to toss and what to keep.  

    This last one should not be an afterthought. Each year as I answer questions about spring-cleaning skin-care stuff (and attend to my own toiletry bags), I realize that we're all guilty of some beauty mistakes, way beyond what we're getting rid of — or what we're holding onto. All of the problems are easy to avoid, and paying attention to them will help you clean up your skin-care routine so you can put your freshest, most natural face forward.
