Q: How many chemicals have you rubbed on your face today?
A: 200. Yes I said 200! This is the number of chemicals the average woman smears on her skin every day due to unnatural skincare. 60% of these chemicals are now floating around in your bloodstream.
Q: The average number of chemicals in organic skincare?
Despite having what can only be described as glowing skin growing-up, I’ve had minor breakouts of acne periodically since university. The only good thing about my breakouts was that they disappeared, leaving no lasting damage. Then come your thirties however; more hormonal changes, and you guessed it. More spots.
I tried peels, facials, more sunshine, expensive creams and not so expensive creams. I even went against my beliefs and tried medication, all to no avail. Then I got to thinking. I eat organic, chemical-free, vegan food, yet I am happy to rub ingredients onto my face when I can’t even pronounce them?
Your skin is your body’s largest living breathing organ. When you put chemicals on it, your skin, in its own way, ingests them. I wouldn’t choose to eat, drink or even lick a chemical cocktail, so I decided to stop forcing my skin to and adapt an organic, chemical free skin care routine courtesy of my new magical find MuLondon.
I won’t lie and say I’m spot free, but it’s 80% better. My skin is glowing, shine-free and it’s getter better day by day. The products can be used day or night, smell gorgeous and leave your skin feeling fresh and energized. Better still, I can pronounce everything on the (very small) ingredients list. I opted for the Rose Foaming Face Wash and Hemp Moisturiser. Both of which I just adore and couldn’t live without. Thank you Mu.
