I think I was 14 when I bought my first expensive face moisturizing cream. Looking back, I think why on earth a teenager would need a moisturizing cream and why would someone sell it to her without questioning it? That was also the year I began to use an anti-cellulite product (even if I didn’t have any cellulite) and makeup. I guess I wanted to feel grown up. In reality, I was doing more harm to my skin than good.

A couple of years ago, I began reading on the effects of anti-wrinkle creams and moisturizers on the skin and how, most of them, weren’t really helping your skin to rejuvenate. I began to fret the future consequences of exposing my skin to so many chemicals throughout the years and I started to have a more mindful and holistic approach to skin care. Treating my skin like an organ was the first step. The second and third was to change my diet to organic food only and reduce exposure to the sun to the time needed to absorb vitamin D. Suddenly, feeling healthy was more important than looking healthy.

At first, I was ready to stop using moisturizers and beauty creams altogether, but a friend explained to me that if I used the right product my skin could actually benefit from the healing properties of some lotions. A few days later, I found FaceDoctor’s beauty cream and I haven’t stopped using it ever since. It’s made with all-natural ingredients and includes the powerful active ingredient sea buckthorn oil. It’s very well known by people who suffer from rosacea and psoriasis already, but anyone can use it. The benefits are healthy looking skin, balanced complexion, and visible reduction of premature aging signs (which only means your skin was under severe attack).
