Oils, wonderful oils

For a girl who used to have oily skin and suffer from pretty bad skin in her twenties, trusting oils and beginning to use them took a leap of faith. The first one I ever used was actually to combat my acne. I must have been in my mid twenties and I was so fed up with using harsh medicated products on my skin to dry out my acne. I remember reading an article in Elle magazine about Natalie Portman loving Dr Hauschka’s Rose Day Cream for her dry, sensitive skin. It was not the first time that I’d heard about the brand and so I went on their website and ordered a booklet that explained their whole approach to skincare and everything you needed to know about their products. That’s where I first read that "like treats like", and therefore a good oil was the best way to balance oily skin. There was so much backed up research that made so much sense to me that I bought their Clarifying Day Oil (it used to be called Normalizing Daily Oil back then) and I never ever looked back. I stopped using it after a couple of years because it had worked so well I no longer needed it. It is the only thing that got rid of my bad skin, and ever since then I have been a total convert to oils and to a more natural approach to skincare.

Reflections after 6 months of blogging and changes ahead

On Sunday it will be 6 months since this blog was born, and it doesn't quite feel real. I want to say that not everything has been a surprise, but I can't think of a single aspect about blogging that has been as I had expected it!

A little break

As you read this I will be away on holiday spending a week at a yoga retreat in France. I had been planning to leave a few posts written and scheduled so that everything was as if I hadn't gone away. After all, I've been fairly inconsistent during the past month and I've seen the number of visits drop. However, I had a change of heart at the last minute, partly because I just didn't have time to do it. I knew that they would be rushed and poor quality, and so I thought that perhaps what will help me get over the inconsistent schedule and back into a more regular posting routine would be to give myself the break I'd craved, give my brain some space to hopefully think about more interesting things to write about.

If you come here regularly, thanks for your patience and sorry I've been so flaky recently!

In the mean time, here is my to do list for the next few days :) What's on your to do list?
