Ever since I was a young girl, I have had severe eczema. Steroid creams had always been my go to, even knowing that it wasn't natural and was thinning and fading my skin. Now my skin is better than ever, and I credit this to my diet and the beauty products I now use.
The things I look for in home and beauty products are anything plant and mineral based with no nasty chemicals such as parabens and products using only natural fragrances such as essential oils. Of course for the ethical side, cruelty free - no animal testing and products that are biodegradable as well as packaging that is recyclable.
Around the same time that I went completely animal free, I went semi hippy and made all my own home and beauty products, it was amazing and so much cheaper! I made my own moisturiser, deodorant, perfume, toothpaste, cleaning products and even bronzer. This was all possible on my school/work holidays. These days I find it easier to buy eco products from my local supermarket. Maybe one day I will be a stay at home mum, then I will aspire to do it again!
