After a personal hiatus to spend time with family, it’s good to be back lovely ones.
Over the past few months we’ve explored so much pertaining to skin health and the beautifying aspects of nature, beauty foods, and DIY recipes that are inherently designed to make you glow and keep you looking young. It’s amazing to realize how much goodness is surrounding us each and every day when it comes to Mother Earth and the whole foods we have available to enjoy.
Walt Whitman may have said it best: “if anything is sacred, the human body is sacred.” This is so true, and brings a level of peace and comfort to me now that I believe it whole-heartedly. When I was younger I didn’t always treat my precious body with such sacred care … oh the stories I could share. But one thing’s for certain and that is the tiny changes we make in our personal worlds can be stepping-stones to the big changes we make in the wider world.
So what’s a tiny change that you can make right now that will keep you looking your very best, help combat those pesky signs of ageing, whilst protecting your health? The answer; safe, natural, non-toxic skin-care products. Let’s be honest, we may not have the opportunity to always eat consciously or have the time to whip up a tropical facial mask each week – but with that said, we women do make it a TOP priority to care for our skin, no matter what. So if we are going to care, let’s care properly. Here are some products I adore and that make life and staying naturally beautiful so simple. The work’s been done for us…
