Born to a Dutch mother and an English father and raised in London, I have been a skincare obsessive for as far back as I can remember. As a child I was captivated by my mother’s daily skincare rituals and in my teenage years I suffered from very problematic skin, applying all manner of things to my face in the pursuit of a perfect complexion. I went on to study and qualify as a skincare/beauty professional and when I moved to Australia, I discovered a more holistic approach to skincare and really began to understand the importance of skin health from the inside out.
After returning to the UK, I started a blog that focused on skincare and wellbeing; understanding that the beauty industry can be an overwhelming space sometimes, I wanted to help guide people through the maze of products and arrive at a place where they were not only more confident about their skincare choices, but also where they could see the rewards of establishing simple but effective skincare and wellbeing practises. (The blog is taking a well-deserved rest for now…)
My journey has provided me the opportunity to try all manner of formulas, products and treatments and, to establish the ones that really work, as well as understanding the positive impact that a more natural approach to skincare can have on your overall health and wellbeing.
