Have you ever picked up your skincare products and read the ingredients? How about actually researching what is specifically in them, to better understand what you are putting on your skin? I will be the first to admit I didn’t always do this. If a lotion said “Moisturizing” or “Nourishing” or “Natural”, I just thought it was. I never actually read and investigated what was in that product. I took these claims as honest and factual; not realizing I was essentially putting a whole lot of ingredients on my skin that were potentially carcinogenic and/or harmful.
Fast forward to present day, and I now scrutinize every single ingredient. Researching to ensure I am not using ingredients that are harmful on my skin and, in fact, staying away from ingredients that are even questionable. Learning that your skin is your largest organ and does absorb what you put on it, only solidified my desire to use better products. And to ultimately to create my own.
