A Teenager's Tale: What Happened When I Switched to Clean Beauty

A Teenager's Tale: What Happened When I Switched to Clean Beauty

Lucy Bryant was 17 years old when she first made the switch to natural beauty. The daughter of my co-founder, Sarah Bryden-Brown, she was beyond adamant she would NEVER use a face oil, she would NEVER use a natural deodorant and she would NEVER bother with a toner.

Fast forward a couple of months and Lucy will now tell you she can't live without her One Love Vitamin B Enzyme Cleansing Oil and Make Up Remover, nor the Butter Elixir Face oil

Lucy's transition has seen her combination skin, which experienced regular breakouts, become less oily and experience fewer breakouts. She also spends more time on her skincare routine because, as she says, "the smells alone are worth it."

Lucy swapped her chemical-based skincare and body care for a natural routine based on my recommendations. Here's what Lucy now uses daily (sharing more than a few of these products with her mom), and the results are clear: her skin looks brighter, she suffers less breakouts and she is ensuring that as she ages, she will see less fine lines and wrinkles, keep that beautiful youthful glow long into maturity, and protect herself against the possibility of cancer through eliminating cancer-causing chemicals.

Remember, your skin is your largest organ, and it absorbs 60% of what you put on in it in 60 seconds. You may well eat organic and use green cleaning products, but unless you also use non-toxic beauty and personal products, you're undoing all that good work.
