Are you aware of all the ingredients in your skincare? I feel like I could put on whatever cream on my face and slather on heavily scented body lotion in my twenties. But ever since I entered my thirties not to long ago, something changed. It might be for hormonal reasons or simply because my skin is aging but drugstore products don´t cut it anymore.
I started to experiment with argan oil around a month ago but remained clueless about what to do to improve my skin over all. I came across Soapwalla as a natural deodorant alternative and this great read about 10 Essential Oils for your home and your health which I shared with my girl friends.
Luckily my friend Christina told me she just started out to become a certified aroma therapist and even though she´s still studying I was more than willing to try her different oils, body butters, foot reflexology treatments and moisturizing lip care. All 100 % natural and even edible (in theory, I haven´t tried that yet).
This opened a whole new world to me and made me aware of what we actually put our skin through which is our largest organ after all! My current favorite, which I am trying out for a week now, is her relaxing foot reflexology oil. This little gem contains mainly lavender, vanilla and tangerine oils and lots of other goodies I am not supposed to reveal here :) Not only did my sleep improve significantly, it also helped me with a bump on my sole, no doctor could help me to get rid off.
I am basically raiding the internet for DIY sources, to inspire her for new products, and came across this homemade eye cream (and we all know how much I love eye creams!):
What do you think? Do you pay attention to skincare ingredients? Are you a fan of all natural skincare like I am? Do tell!
