I’ve been experimenting a lot with makeup, lately. Especially since I have recently gone blonde, and my “tan skinned” days are over. In other words, I keep a more pale complexion, these days. I think it’s important to reevaluate our “look” every 6 months, because a subtle change in just the color of our skin (say, from summer to fall) can clash with our makeup products.
I just finished my third Youtube video on organic skincare and makeup products. Right now, these are my favorites based on three standards.
1) The ingredients need to be natural. Preferably, organic! After being diagnosed with autoimmune disease AND the MTHFR Mutation that limits my body’s ability to detox, I knew that I had to make some serious changes. I cleaned up my diet. I exchanged the products in my household (from bar soap to laundry detergent). I incorporated a weekly Detox routine. And, I switched out my skincare and make-up products. Our skin is the largest organ. Ignoring the vulnerability of our skin absorbing toxins from harsh chemicals, paragons, artificial colors/fragrances, etc. can lead us down a turbulent path of acquiring more autoimmune disorders! All this to say, I’ve been very picky in selecting products that go on my skin (and especially my face), and the ingredients have to be natural!
I really enjoy getting dolled up and going out. I do NOT do this often which is probably why I enjoy it so much. Whenever I have a special occasion, such as a wedding, I appreciate having a reason to spend a little extra time doing things I don’t normally do.
