I’m a firm believer that taking risks can be a healthy practice. But, when it comes to my body, there's no room for that. We all know that what you put in your body for nourishment is highly impactful on your overall health and well-being. What seems to be less known is that what you put on your body is just as important.
We’re all used to it by now – skincare products with mile-long labels full of jargon and hard to pronounce ingredients that we don’t necessarily understand. It’s easy to fall into a routine of not questioning these products and instead blindly trusting them. And while that may be convenient, it is not always good because it is so important to pay attention to what you put on your body.
Thankfully, there’s an abundance of naturally occurring remedies for our skin within our environment. Some of these natural compounds, such as honey, have been proven by time and experimentation to be incredibly effective medicaments for a wide array of maladies and undesirable conditions.
I began using an all-natural skincare routine from Honey Girl Organics three years ago. Before then, I was guilty of using chemical-based products that stripped my skin of helpful oils and left my skin more sensitive than ever before. The Foaming Facial Wash was an amazing alternative to all other cleansers I tried in the past, both gentle and highly effective at penetrating my pores to rid them of impurities. The Rejuvenating Mask and Facial Scrub were also a vital duo in my upgraded routine – the mask making use of honey and French green clay to heal my scars and even my complexion, and the scrub helping to rid my skin of dead cells with superfine sugar and diatomaceous earth.
I’ll be honest – prior to making the switch to organic skincare, I was skeptical of the effectiveness of natural ingredients. Through plenty of research and real application thanks to Honey Girl, all my doubts were put to rest. From head to toe, I now know exactly what my body is absorbing, and I am confident that I’m giving my skin the best nourishment possible. With the use of natural ingredients, my skin has never looked healthier or felt stronger, and I have never felt more confident.
