My name is Kseniya, and I am a natural green beauty advocate. Having an obsession with the beauty industry since a pre-teen has led me to experiment with numerous brands from drugstores to high end. However, seeing external health issues such as acne, dryness, peeling and redness on my skin led me to look at ingredients in my favorite brands.
Taking out products with parabens, which are hormone disruptors and are linked to cancerous cells was just a scratch on the surface. Researching questionable ingredients in my everyday cosmetics have raised red flags on my face foundations, concealers, body washes, hair serums, acne medications, etc. I was in shock and disbelief when I ran into an article that stated in US, cosmetic companies are not required to test any of the ingredients for safety. It’s simply all about profit!
I started this blog to provide and share my journey with the cosmetic industry and its harmful ingredients that can lead to various health problems.
Battling acne for 18 years has lead me to seek answers outside the dermatologists visits and makeup consultants at departments stores to cover my skin with chemical laden foundations. Consulting with my mom who’s a licensed esthetician of 20 years and has a holistic nutrition background, has tremendously cleared and saved my skin!
I’m passionate about women’s health and would love to share with you the natural, organic brands that I’ve discovered on my journey to a healthy complexion, as well as balanced internal health. I believe we never stop growing and it is imperative to keep asking questions about the products, foods, and ingredients that are surrounded us on a daily basis. Please always keep in mind, what goes on our skin, gets absorbed in our blood stream. In other words, our bodies absorb over 65% on what we put on. This includes skincare products, body lotions, makeup, hair products, and fragrances. Eating a balanced and healthy diet is also crucial to clear and beautiful skin.
I will share with you supplements, beauty products (skincare, makeup, body, hair), and various health foods that have helped me clear my skin and awaken my body to its natural and healthy state.
In addition, I want women to see that you don’t need to compromise your health for glam makeup! We are visual by nature and love to see what’s beautiful and glamorous in our cosmetic bags. I will introduce green beauty brands that are just as glamorous on the outside as well as high performance on the inside.
Stay beautiful, naturally!
