About Me


My name is Sydney Stewart, the Founder and Editor-in-Chief of Essential Radiance Beauty. My intent is for this blog to serve as a guide for you to a more natural lifestyle, including non-toxic green beauty products, travel essentials, and wellness trends. 

While living in the suburbs of Chicago, I became infatuated with nutrition and diets around the age of 17. With a move to the state of Texas, I began to pursue a degree in Nutrition at Texas Tech University. I graduated college and moved to Houston where my interests to live a healthier lifestyle allowed me to find the Nutritional Therapy Association. NTA is an online certification course that I enrolled in to become a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner. I received the certification of NTP in November 2015 and I have enrolled in several courses ranging from nutrition to skincare, to Ayurveda medicine since then. 

Currently living in New York, my focus on health, wellness trends and natural, non-toxic skincare has exploded. My interests are what makes us happy and glow from within. Here on Essential Radiance Beauty you can see that I am a big believer in the holistic lifestyle, but I realize that myself, as most people, do not always have time to live au natural. Let’s be real, science-driven results, convenience, and fast-acting, are ideas that come to mind. 

At its core, Essential Radiance Beauty is my goal of a healthy balance of a holistic lifestyle for the modern woman to achieve the radiant beauty from within. The journey of discovering new ideas geared towards healthier lifestyle habits will be one to document. I hope that you are able to take my experiences to better yourself on your own journey to live a healthier and happier life.
