I bet you are wondering what is meant by “Skindulge”! Skindulge is a name I thought up about ten years ago and have clung on to like crazy. It started off by being a title for the face creams and soaps I was making at the time and which I still make. I care passionately about what goes into the potions that we put on our hair and skin as well as on our gardens, in our seas and what we do with our landscapes.
A quick stroll through any cosmetics department will reveal aisle after aisle of luxurious and expensive skin care products. It’s very easy to be seduced by the packaging and beautiful displays, especially with all the media hype that many commercial skin care lines receive. Sure, they look great on the shelves – but have you ever taken the time to read the list of ingredients stretched across the product packaging? I won’t bore you by listing here all these chemicals but I would urge you to start to take a more pro-active approach to your skin care choices by resisting the seduction marketing of commercial skin care products and educating yourself about the potential dangers of your favourite skin care brands. The fact is, much of what we place on our skin is absorbed into our bloodstream. Just think about nicotine and birth control patches.
The task of scrutinising every ingredient in the bevy of daily products the average consumer uses can be daunting. It can get so overwhelming to constantly worry about each ingredient in every product that we just want to forget the whole thing …. so …. go home and have a go at making your own! It’s easier than you think, and you get to choose what goes into your creams and lotions!
