goal is to change the science of makeup to become more natural and
develop a partnership between science and nature. I want to distribute
the best products that heal the skin to make it look more naturally
Can you go natural and get a great looking glow?
You can if you
follow my simple tips for creating the gentlest beauty regimen
Avoid harsh facial cleansers. Your skin needn’t be scrubbed or squeaky
to be clean, so don’t overdo it.
Mild, non-detergent cleansers—milks, gels, foams, or cloths—are your best
bet. Scan the ingredient labels of products to see if they contain
gentle, plant-derived surfactants (the prefix coco- equals coconut, for
example; gluco- equals fruit sugars). The natural source is often
hinted at in the name of a product.
Make sure acid-laced products are pH-balancedThis means their pH is in sync with skin, so they gently remove
sebum (an oily substance secreted by the skin) and makeup without
stripping natural oils. Look for the words pH- balance on
cleansers that contain glycolic or lactic acids and on exfoliators, she
adds, because some have a low pH, which can cause dryness.
