It's Still Spring - Start Fresh and Go Non-Toxic

"I like my products like I like my people. Non-toxic"

Back in 2016, after living with Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) for 2-3 years and starting my new job as a consultant, I had made a New Years resolution to "start over." To change and live a better, healthier, and happier life-style. Eat clean and get all the toxic things out of my life, including personal care products. However, it wasn't easy to change, especially all at once, with all the new stress factors in my life, including a new job fresh out of college and all the adult responsibilities. I am sure it's not easy for anyone - there are so many temptations and choices to make in this world. So how did I do it? Where did I start? When did I start?

Let's just say, it wasn't easy. I learned that my resolution wasn't an easy feat and couldn't happen overnight. It was a marathon, not a race. I took one step at a time, and incorporated small changes into my lifestyle. For example, I started with changing my diet to eating clean due to my IBS symptoms, and worked my way to natural skincare and personal care products.

However, I understand your frustration at this point - it's easier said than done, right?

So starting this Spring, I will help you start your transition to a clean, non-toxic lifestyle with Seafaring Beauty, my clean beauty blog, where I share all the natural products (from around the world) I use and find most effective. My end goal is to help you "Clean Swap" the toxic products you use daily, to natural, organic, and green products.

I hope my blog will not only help you realize the benefits of experimenting and testing products for your own skin type, but also help narrow down the vast number of natural product choices out there in the market. 

Let's start by thinking about all the toxic things in your life, whether it be your living environment, a life event, your job, the food you eat, the products you use, or even the people around you. Spring is a time of rebirth - why not take action this Spring to prioritize what's most important to you and start making the small, positive changes?

Cheers, Diane
