Thank you, thank you, thank you! Especially for number one. this is a brilliant and so well needed post. I'm so tired of people hyping about "chemicals" and how "toxic" they are. I totally trust well researched ingredients a lot more than i do more "natural" but less researched agents. People today don't understand how the dose actually decide IF something is toxic, people trust bloggers more than science (which is a super scary trend), and it's like everything has to be black or white. I happily use Mary Kay products with well researched stuff like parabens and salicylic acid (which is why I use it, it has cured my acne), I definitely want to use fluoride in my toothpaste, etc, but I also love to use natural soaps and shampoo bars for my hair - but mainly to avoid buying products that come in plastic packaging.

Ultimately, one must do their due diligence. I think a lot of people don't properly research and rely solely on (one) magazine or media for their information. I think you also need to listen to your body and skin, just like how a lot of people say veganism is the ONLY way to be healthy ... erm, no! My body needs more substantial nutrients but I can abstain from other foods occasionally that cause an unfavourable reaction to my body, etc. I actually used to be vegetarian for 14 years and now I am not, ironically had to switch for health reasons, haha. enjoyed this post.

Love this! There are so many myths, perpetuated by marketing, it makes it hard to know what to think sometimes.

Great article here, Jenny! I have to agree, skincare is not so black/white. I am no expert, but I listen to my skin. So if it doesn't like a certain formula/ingredient, I try to stay away from it. Lol at satan's tears - I actually apply that 1$ Nivea cream after every swimming session and it is the only thing that saves me after literally spending one hour with my face dunked in chlorine.

Thank you Naya! I totally agree, it's so important that we listen more to our skin and not blindly follow everything we read! And that's awesome that the Nivea creme works so well for you, it's truly a classic for a reason!
