Maybe she is born with it or maybe she is consistent with her beauty products routine. Who knows? I grew up admiring my Mom for many wonderful reasons and one of those reasons was her being effortlessly feminine and beautiful when she was younger. Her secret was simple. She had a great pose when walking, she ate healthily, danced and smiled a lot and she started early in life taking care of her skin. A natural beauty. By seven, I was playing with her skin products pretending that I was her and by nine Mom started teaching me how to take care of my skin. The excitement when she bought me my first skincare product. A beautiful crystal bottle with a magic liquid inside. In reality, it was just liquid vitamin E. But to little me, it was the holy grail.
THE NATURAL BEAUTY SECRET TAUGHT BY MOM
I grew up under the Caribbean sun and it turns out that mom was right. According to WebMD, vitamin E is a great natural sunblock. By the time I was a teenager, I knew a lot about natural beauty oils and facial masks. I didn’t suffer much from acne. It was rare and only on certain days. By the time I was in college and living at a cold-weather state, I was obsessed with skincare marketing products. I would be a richer woman now if I would have invested my money somewhere else instead of beauty products from successful marketing campaigns. Which mean that sometimes we pay for the name, for the brand, for the pretty package, for effectiveness yes but not necessarily for healthy quality ingredients. A mistake that I learned to correct later in life.
NATURAL SKINCARE AFTER 30
Came the end of my twenties and things got serious. The big thirty was approaching and the world “antiaging” became my best friend. But this time, I knew better to stay away from expensive marketing products. And I thought about my mom giving me that first vitamin E oil to take care of my skin and I discovered that she was in the right track all along with natural beauty products. Organic and natural skincare beauty is the best anti-aging beauty routine. It was time to discover and experiment with holistic organic beauty and what was best for my skin. On this post series, I’m sharing the natural products that I discovered and why they work. Affordable and effective is truly the holy grail of skincare for all ages.
