I don’t know about you, but I get really excited talking about oils ? ?
In a day and age when companies market their over processed, chemical-ridden skincare products as “all natural,” “moisturizing,” “anti-aging,” and so on, it’s nice to know I can depend on plants to save the day ? As a vegan, I depend on plants for food and they provide all the nourishment I need. But they’re also the safest and most effective choice when it comes to skincare as well. For thousands of years, people used plants as medicine – and it worked. But today, consumers want eye catching packaging, famous spokespeople, and great marketing. It’s all smoke and mirrors. Do your research and you’ll realize that none of those products are actually good for your skin, in fact, some of them are terrible for your skin and your whole body.
If you go to my Health & Beauty page, you can read my Be Beautiful Inside and Out series that discusses what ingredients to stay away from and why, as well as the importance of picking humane beauty products that are not animal tested, and how chemicals infiltrate every part of our lives.
Kind of overwhelming to realize how much junk is in the products you may have been purchasing and using for years. I’m guilty of it myself. I now use all natural oils on my face each morning and night as my moisturizer and my face feels like a baby ?
