I’m one of those people who believe that loving oneself is as important as loving others. Self-care is an important aspect of self-love and it’s a topic I thoroughly enjoy discussing and spreading awareness about.

I’m a lover of natural and minimal skincare and over the past year or so, I’ve been on my own personal journey towards an all-natural skincare regime. For this post, I’ve teamed up with Lulu and Marula, a brand that epitomizes self-care and its importance through skincare.

Caring for one’s body is vital in order to live a happy and fulfilling life and feeling comfortable in your own skin is key.

Lulu and Marula is an all-natural skincare brand that is based right here in South Africa. It was founded in 2013 by Jesslynn, who has always been obsessed with skincare and so, when she couldn’t find any suitable, natural skincare products to meet her liking and needs, she made her own. And she did a pretty good job!

Over the past few years, simple and healthy living has become increasingly popular and prevalent. Natural living forms a part of this and it certainly translates in natural beauty and skincare.

Why natural, you ask? “Your skin is your largest organ; it absorbs a lot of what you put on it. The way skin care products are produced plays a role that is just as important as the way your food is grown and produced. So if you choose to eat clean and shop for locally grown food, why wouldn’t you do the same for your skin care products?” – Jesslynn

I’ve been using some Lulu and Marula products for a little while now. I’ve loved the transition to all-natural skincare products. I’ve always been blessed with healthy and clear skin, and for this I am very grateful, however I can still feel the difference after using these products.

Cleansing Balancing Balm

Prior to using this product, I was using a liquid facial cleanser that is considered one of the top skincare brands, expect it has lots of yucky chemicals and left my skin feeling tight an weird after a wash. Naturally (no pun intended), the Balancing Balm is a welcome replacement. Its soothing, gentle and it smells pretty darn good. I’ve always loved skincare rituals, but I love mine even more now.

Purifying Treatment Oil  

I’ve always been a bit skeptical of putting oil on my face, however, over the past few months, I’ve been struggling a tad with dry skin, so I’ve embraced facial oils. I was pleasantly surprised by how lightweight this oil is, yet it still feels so nourishing. I’ve used a drop or two on my face a couple of nights a week and it makes for a wonderful addition to my skincare regime. My skin feels more hydrated, which is lovely.  It also smells deliciously dreamy.

I’m simply loving my new skincare routine and I’d really encourage you to take a few steps to make your skincare routine a little more natural. I’m not saying you have to change all at once. Try bringing in a few natural products and see how it makes your skin feel.

Keep smiling and taking care of your skin!
