It all started when I realised that my face has become extremely sensitive. I was prone to rashes that was red and blotchy and, no matter what I do, they just wouldn’t go away!
I thought this was strange as I was a skincare addict – I layered on around seven different products on my face every day and night. I would spend more than a hundred pounds for a product, given that they are well acclaimed and backed by thousands of positive reviews. The brands that I have tried include (but not limited to): Emma Hardie, Eve Lom, La Mer, Alpha-H, Paula’s Choice, Skinceuticals, Estee Lauder, Shu Uemura, Roc, doctor prescribed retinal,Biologique Recherche P50/ Pixi’s Glow Tonic etc.
At first I thought the culprit was in my everyday makeup. I decided to switch my concealer and powder to an all-natural alternative, and I chose RMS beauty. Using all-natural makeup for the first time felt wonderful on my skin. Their performance was even better than the Mac/ Laura Mercier products that I was used to. I was ecstatic – naturally, I did more research on the green beauty industry and found that most of the skincare products I was using was non-natural. Ingredients like Parabens, Propylene Glycol, and Urea are all chemicals that were found in my skincare routine, which could cause adverse reactions to the skin.
This is a chart that I always refer to when I do my skincare shopping:

Armed with new knowledge, I switched up my entire skincare and beauty cupboards to all-natural products. I have had so much great results that I have never looked back since. My face is now healthy, comfortable and well balanced.
This revelation was so pivoting that I wanted to share with the world the pure goodness of an all-natural lifestyle. Too little people are aware of the toxins we put on our faces on a daily basis. This blog aims to promote the beauty of going back to the basics, and to help new converters choose the right all-natural products for their skin.
