Many women seem to hate their skin, right? Well, I am no exception. My skin is very oily and acne-prone, yet has some dry spots and always feels tight after a cleansing routine. I started to think about the products I used, read through the ingredients, learned what they were. I realized that maybe the reason my skin is so uneven is because of the harsh chemicals I was putting on my skin every day. I started to ask around for some natural ways to cleanse my face.
I know some people who oil cleanse their skin, and swear by it! For someone with oily skin, the word “oil” is a scary word. I wanted to try something a little tamer first, that was not pure oil. My co-worker introduced me to the brand One Love Organics. These products are made from simple, raw plant minerals and oils. No sulfates, no preservatives, no mineral oil, no synthetic fragrances….. the list goes on!
Right away I noticed a difference with my skin. My skin was soft and moisturized. Moisturized skin always frightened me, as it conjured images of “oily” which was the exact opposite of what I thought my skin needed to be. Little did I know that stripping all the natural oils from your skin with harsh chemicals actually makes you produce more oil. I have never seen my skin this healthy and glowing! Seems like a “duh” moment, I know, thinking that nature holds the best for your skin, as well as your body. I am conscious of eating healthy and organically, so why would I only care about what is going in my body and not ON it?
I am absolutely in love with One Love Organics – their philosophy, philanthropy, and natural ingredients are the embodiment of eco-friendly living. I definitely recommend trying to find beauty products that use pure, natural plant oils, no matter what brand! Not only are there superficial benefits (healthy, younger looking skin) but finding natural products that are environmentally friendly from their ingredients to their packaging, allows us to take another step in the direction of green living!
