In case you’ve only met me through The Happiness Cocktail, I should probably explain that I’m also a beauty editor. My monthly work can be seen in Good Health Magazine as of the June issue (buy it, it’s going to be EPIC), and my weekly work can be seen on PRIMPED.com.au. I also write for The Style Glossy, and am in the process of writing my first (of many) eBook. But more on that later.
My point, Happies, is that being a beauty editor allows me sniff out the difference between a good skincare product, an average skincare product, and a product I wouldn’t ever put anywhere near my face. That latter is a rare find, but they’re out there.
This brand, however, is a brand that I cannot wait to share with you. It’s called NUDE – Advanced Probiotic Skincare, and I have come into contact with it many times in my career and even met the owner, Bryan Meehan (Google him, he has a terrific life story).
But it wasn’t until recently that I started using the products daily. For starters, all their products are completely free from parabens, sulphates, PEGs, TEA, DEA, propylene glycol, phthalates, GMOs, mineral oil, and silicones, so they’re great for sensitive skin-types and people who are trying to reduce the amount of chemicals in their life.
They’re also REALLY effective. Think: Clean skin that’s healthy and glowing, with a reduced pore appearance and no sign of freaking out anytime soon. Hooray!
You do pay a premium for the products, but in my opinion, good skin is worth investing in. So, if you’re on the lookout for a new range of skincare products that are healthy on your skin and the environment, here’s my recommendation…
1. Nude Cleansing Facial Oil – Amazing ability to remove makeup, oil build-up, and gunk collected on your face during the day. LOVE IT!
2. Nude Night Oil – One of the brand’s hero products and it’s no surprise why. This super rich night oil is packed with Omegas and gives your skin more love and nourishment than a home-cooked casserole ever could.
3. Nude Advanced Cellular Renewal Serum – I’ve been using this serum religiously for about a month now and I can notice a difference in my skin. It’s a delight to apply – goes on like a dream – and it has definitely improved my skintone and texture. If you’re new to the serum concept, apply it after you cleanse and before you moisturise, for a concentrated skin issue tackler that gets the job done.
Here’s the visual…
The whole point in investing in a skincare range that is free from parabens and other skin-irritants is to help heal your skin naturally. The more chemicals you put on your skin (and in your house) the greater chance you have of skin issues, sensitivity, and irritation. A cycle is then created where you put more harsh chemicals on your skin to fix said problem, and the issues come and go and come and go and come and go. It would be far more beneficial to look at the root cause of the issue, and then fix it naturally.
So, whether you’re wanting to eliminate skin concerns, have simply made the decision to reduce the amount of chemicals you’re exposed to everyday, or just want a good quality skincare range that actually works and happens to be natural, too, this is one worth considering.
