My skin was being very itchy and nasty lately over my whole body. It was going on since a long while, months, years, and it seems something chronicle and I couldn’t really see an end to it any time soon. So now I’m making the switch to all natural basic skincare (and haircare too) to see how it goes! I can’t deny the definitive push was given to me while reading this post by Freya; I started thinking: “why am I still thinking oils can only be bad for oily skins?” and decided to finally give the whole coconut-oil-only thing a whirl. I’m doing it since only a few days, but so far so good and my skin is reacting wonderfully, not even near to my most positive expectations! Now every time I take a shower, I firstly wash my hair with my favourite shampoo from Lush, then I wash my body with nothing more than natural shower gels or, even better, castile soap (any harsh bath sponge is strictly forbidden) and then I cleanse my face with pure virgin organic coconut oil and nothing else! If I feel like I need a bit of exfoliation I only commit myself to my beloved Let The Good Times Roll (cleanser + exfoliator in one means I can really keep my skincare stash to the minimal!). A bit extreme? I know, but so far I’ve seen the best results I was hoping to see since a while!
Are you planning to go natural with your skincare products any time soon? Let me know if you have some natural gems one with oily skin and bad dry patches needs to know about! x
