As you know I inspire to live a greener and healthier life but that doesn’t mean I should look like a hippie! There is nothing wrong with looking like a hippie, don’t get me wrong, just that I am more of a girly girl! Maman is a real lady (she doesn’t go out of the house without wearing make-up and a pair of heels – how very French) so I most likely got it from her! I made the switch to natural skincare about two years ago after reading about the toxicity of many chemicals and synthetic ingredients used in everyday make-up and skin care products. From time to time I also like to feature here some of my favourite eco-friendly and natural skin care products as I discover them.
Why natural skincare is better
Skin is our largest organ and when you think that the average woman uses up to 12 personal care products a day, it is scary to think how many toxic ingredients we are injecting ourselves without even realising it! Products containing petrochemicals, synthetic fragrances and preservatives are particularly at risk. Toxic might be cheaper for the manufacturers but it is definitely not better for the end consumer. Think long term!
