The older I get, the extra I’m studying that that is true about skincare and make-up, too. My pores and skin must be nourished in numerous methods when it’s chilly and windy than when it’s sizzling and humid. Our pores and skin– similar to our digestion, our clothes, our every day rituals— thrives finest if you combine issues up. And wonder, actually does come from the within out.
The extra constant water you drink, the extra greens and nutrient dense meals you eat, the higher your digestion is, the extra you are feeling your precise feelings and have methods of releasing them, nicely… it reveals.

It’s enjoyable and playful and female in my e-book. and I really like the act of decoration behind it (similar with clothes).
I do know most individuals use make-up to cowl up who they naturally are. Or to appear like everybody else. Or out of insecurity.
However I believe when you find yourself within the observe of caring, loving and respecting your self totally (by what you eat, how you reside, the way you discuss to your self, and many others),nicely sourced & intentional make-up will be such a enjoyable option to totally improve all of the issues that make you YOU. It’s not about overlaying up. It’s about seeing your self totally, and embracing that girls with open arms.
However till very just lately, pure, non-toxic make-up choices had been um….. principally discovered within the again part of well being meals shops (smelling like a patchouli and with packaging you in all probability wouldn’t need sitting in your toilet counter). And plenty of them simply didn’t work. Belief me. I’ve tried a whole bunch of them over time.
Fortunately nowadays, there are SO MANY superb, cleaner and non-toxic choices. That work. And have components in them that nourish the pores and skin vs clog it or strip it down. That’s my kinda jam.
