Whether you’ve been struggling with skin problems for years, or are just trying to get a leg up on aging, there’s no doubt that most of us spend more time (and money!) on our skincare regimens than we care to admit. After my own decade-and-a-half long battle, my complexion finally mellowed out — and the answer wasn’t sitting behind a pharmaceutical counter. Instead, all it took was quitting makeup (crazy, I know) and switching to organic, gentle products to give new life to my face, and I’ve been singing the praises of all-natural skincare ever since. For that reason, I couldn’t wait to introduce you all to our guest today: Adina Grigore is an all-natural skincare expert and the founder of a thriving organic skincare line, and she joins us today to share 6 wholesome recipes for making healthy skincare products in your own kitchen. Take it away, Adina…
I know we’ve just met – but I have some questions for you. Do you read food labels? Are you conscious of what you put in your body? Do artificial colorants, synthetic flavors, and lengthy ingredient lists freak you out?
If you answered “yes” to any of these, I now want you to think about the skincare products you’re using, and ask yourself the same questions. Do your answers look the same? I hope they do.
I believe the ingredients for healthy skin are the exact same ones that we use to feed a healthy body. It’s a belief that’s core to my book, Skin Cleanse, plus informs the philosophy of my all-natural, five-ingredient-or-less skincare company, S.W. Basics. While most beauty marketers might suggest otherwise, I’m telling you this: The elements for glowing skin aren’t found solely in a chemical-laden, $75 bottle of “miracle” cream. They’re found in your kitchen; they’re simple, whole, and totally nutritious, and your skin loves them just as much as your body does. Keep reading to find six recipes from Skin Cleanse that utilize kitchen staples to create truly effective and gentle natural skin treatments. Bonus? All of them have ingredients you can actually pronounce. Bon appetit!
