I began to embrace an organic lifestyle. I was eating the cleanest, greenest locally sourced food. I went as chemical-free as much as possible around the house.
And then it hit me. My skin care and beauty regimen was part of the problem.
The way I looked, and how that made me feel, was very important to me.
I used to spend a lot of money on moisturisers and cosmetics without really considering the impact they might have on my health and the environment.
With little A on board, I was acutely aware that I was no longer responsible just for my own health. A little research showed me that some cosmetics may affect unborn babies.
I knew I had to act.
