I've always been really conscious about my nutrition and have spent a lot of time focused on eating an organic plant-based diet. This works really well for my body and soul and was one of the main switches I made on the journey to getting pregnant. It wasn't until about three years ago that I decided that it was completely pointless only worrying about the foods I was putting into my body when I was slathering on toxic products. I think so many of us do just this, without really giving it too much thought — I was one of them.
Our lives are becoming increasingly busy and not only are we looking for convenience, but if the bottle says it's going to take away the ageing process, then why would we question it or its ingredients? After all it's one less thing to worry about. It's usually only when an illness or fertility issue comes up that we question things. Once you start actually reading your labels and not being able to pronounce half the ingredients, never mind understand them, that’s when you realise there’s an issue. This is how I came across RMS beauty products — they list E-V-E-R-Y S-I-N-G-L-E ingredient which is incredibly rare and best of all I could actually understand all of them! They’re also against testing on animals and did I mention that their packaging is made from recyclable glass? What’s not to love?!
Our skin is our biggest organ and biggest protector. What we put onto our skin goes straight into our bloodstream and if we are using toxic ingredients then that's what ends up being absorbed into our blood. RMS beauty is by far my favourite organic make-up brand as its base is certified organic, raw, virgin coconut oil. Coconut oil is renowned for being anti-bacterial and anti-fungal and has the highest source of lauric acid which is also found in breast milk. It’s gentle and gives your skin a gorgeous dewy, natural look.
Along with switching up my beauty regime, I also incorporated morning meditation, daily walks and yoga into my weekly routine. Looking back now, I know that all these changes have made a positive impact on both our lives and overall wellbeing.
