Lindsay Baron is a freelance writer and the Chicago-based Midwest Account Executive for a top organic skincare company. She holds a B.A. in journalism from Indiana University and has worked as a web producer for several major magazines in Manhattan.

Battling acne through her teen years and frustratingly trying countless products that did nothing—or worse, left her skin ruddy and raw—Lindsay applied her research savvy in college to learning about skincare products and ingredients. Soon after, she started contributing reviews to MakeupAlley, earning a Top Reviewer status.

After arriving in NYC to pursue magazine editing, she parlayed her cosmetics knowledge into a position as a skincare consultant at Sephora to pay the bills until becoming an editorial assistant at Parents.com.  She started Eco*Pretty has a fun, non-mommy outlet while at Parents.  She has since worked for Gourmet, Bon Appetit, Allure, and Self's websites and is a contributing writer for a central Indiana magazine called SOUTH.

Jen and Lindsay became blogs buddies through an informative site that Jen wrote called Skin Rhythm, and Lindsay asked her to lend her knowledge to Eco*Pretty in January 2009.  Jen lives in Austin, Texas with her young twin boys.

Linds,
I just recently found out about your beauty blog and am interested in how to cover up scars from cold sores. Any thoughts on this would be greatly appreciated!
Keep up the good work!
