When I was a young girl, I loved watching my mum do her daily beauty routine. Even back then she used natural ingredients to look after her skin. She slept with aloe vera on her face, exfoliated with sugar and honey and only used natural creams to moisturise. I think that’s when I started to love healthy skin! My mother was a nurse, but definitely an alternative one! She is passionate about natural health and she has always relied on homemade remedies.

I can’t believe it’s May already! In Australia, Mother’s Day is coming up – a great time to reflect on what family means to us and how we can celebrate the people we share our lives with.
