Re: Sometimes less is more.

A few days ago, I was excited to see a commercial by Dove, featuring their bar soap as an effective face cleanser. I’ve used Dove bar soap as a cleanser for a while now and it’s definitely an unexpected cleanser I would recommend for ANY skin type. A bold recommendation I know, but I love the simplicity that the cleanser provides. Over the years I’ve tried high-end and drugstore cleansers, yet Dove bar soap has been the only product that gave me consistent positive results.

My doctor recommended Dove after I was experiencing some breakouts on my forehead. I was lucky enough to not have a lot of acne growing up so it was a huge surprise to me when I started university. I tried high-end skin care products and even tried a few facials.    

Realizing how effective simple products can be for my skin care regiment, I’ve been diligent about finding simple, affordable and as close to all natural products to replace my current skin care products. I’m going by the rule: ‘if I can’t eat it (main ingredients of the product) I won’t put it on my skin.’ It might seem a little tough but there are methods from various cultures using fruits, vegetables, herbs, spices, etc., helping to keep their skin fresh and nutrient rich. Some of these methods have been used for generations so why won’t they work for me? I’m really excited about this and I hope to share with you some of my all natural skin care finds in my later posts!

For now, I’m testing homemade turmeric masks! What’s your skin care regiment like? Leave a comment below if you have any recommendations for methods, products or homemade recipes! I’m always open for suggestions 🙂
