Skincare should be simple, made from a few nutrient dense ingredients that are high in vitamins, essential fatty acids and antioxidants.
Ingredients that will nourish from the outside in and are literally good enough to eat.
Have you ever used food as skincare? This is the most natural, nutritious and healthy way to care for your skin.
Skin care should essentially be an act of self love, however the reality is that the beauty industry is anything but loving, fostering unhealthy relationships with our skin and bodies.
It has caused us to disconnect from our skin and to seek instant results to what we see as flaws. The multitude of treatments and products we put our skin through are often not loving and only reflect back at us that something is wrong and needs changing.
And the irony is that the more instant fixes we try on our perceived flaws the longer it can take to unravel and restore balance.
I believe that skincare should be simple, raw and unprocessed, feeding your skin from the outside in. Instead the majority of our skincare products are filled with toxic ingredients, adding up to hundreds that we put on our bodies every day.
Changing what you put on your skin is one of the easiest ways to dramatically reduce the amount of toxins you are exposed to each day, and improve your health in the process.
Many ingredients common in everyday skincare have been known to cause allergic reactions, skin irritation and accumulate in vital organs. They have been linked to neuro, reproductive, respiratory, kidney, liver, developmental and immune toxicity as well as cancer. In addition to being harmful, these ingredients will not provide you with any nourishment, and are of no benefit to your overall health.
Using products made with nutrient rich natural ingredients means that they will nourish and enrich your skin and continue having a positive effect when they are absorbed into your body.
Let me show you that it really is simple to create effective and nourishing skincare products using ingredients you already have on hand in your fridge or pantry.
These are products that you will be able to start using immediately, and keep creating more as you need, while saving money and reducing waste.
This is about empowering you to be in charge of your skin care, to start tuning in and learning to respond to your skin’s needs without having to rely on marketing claims. It’s about letting go of unnatural expectations and reclaiming your connection with your skin, body and with nature.
How does it work?
Every day you will receive an email with a new skincare recipe using simple food ingredients.
Each day we will make a new product from a few simple ingredients you probably already have on hand in your fridge or pantry.
Learn about how each of these ingredients benefit the skin and body, and how to use them to create highly effective products.
By the end of the challenge you will have a set of beauty products you can easily make and incorporate into a weekly routine, and the knowledge to start creating more of your own.

What people are saying
"Thank you for the recipes and the push to have some me time”
"I've loved them! They've been simple and effective. It's been a great reminder to take some time out for myself each day and do some pampering! I've found the amounts that each recipe has made perfect-enough for that use and then a bit more to store in the fridge for next time. Thanks so much for putting this together and reminding us how simple things can be “

“Started my day this morning with a wonderful body scrub! I honestly don't know how long it has been since I have done a full body scrub, it was lovely. My skin felt so smooth and moisturised afterwards, which is great as I tend to have dry skin. Thank you”
“I've tried it and it made my skin feel so smooth and I did not need to moisturise afterwards.”
