When it comes to your beauty routine... Well, things can get complicated.
From toners to serums, exfoliants, moisturisers, cleansers, the list goes on. We get it, you’ve got lots of options for keeping up that continuous glow and it sure is hard work! We pair, pick and choose, some fads come and go, or we stick with our core products for what may seem like forever. Camu camu, right?
But let’s pause for a moment. When you think about the products you’re using, do you actually know the ingredients that are in them? Or where the ingredients came from? How many of them err on the side of natural and are free from scary sounding words like parabens, petrochemicals and unpronounceables?
That’s what we thought!
Now, let’s take a step back for a moment.
When it comes to what we eat, we discovered over the years that making the switch to organic and unprocessed foods was better for our health. Less pesticides and additives, less confusing ingredients...we ultimately went back to basics, and frankly it feels (and looks) great!
Now, why wouldn’t we want the same benefits for our skin too? Trick question. Of course we do! Ok, we’re not eating our skincare products (at least we hope you’re not) but think of it this way- our skin is our body’s largest organ and the ultimate protective barrier for our body. 
It absorbs sixty to seventy-percent of what we feed it. Everything that we put on our skin slowly but surely sinks in (that statistic is probably sinking in too) and makes its way into our bloodstream, tissues and organs. There it has just as much of an impact as if we were actually eating it. 
Unfortunately, in the last several decades, our bodies have increasingly developed more issues involving infertility, hormone imbalances, allergies and way more sensitivities than anyone should normally have. Just by walking outside every day, our bodies are going through layers and layers of toxins whether it’s from the air pollution, pesticides or chemicals that contribute to our imbalances and ongoing health issues. Pair all these other nasties with the ones hiding in our daily beauty routine and there you go. It can be a vicious cycle. 
But have no fear, there is hope!
By making the switch to a more au naturel beauty routine today, your skin will not only thank you but so will your overall health! It’s a win-win, and a total no-brainer.
So, where to begin? You guessed it. It’s right back to the basics. Start taking a peek at those ingredients so your complexion can keep on keepin’ on with its beautiful radiance just the way nature intended.
