In the last few years, we as a nation have become a lot more informed about what we put both in and on our bodies. The fact that we are becoming more aware is great because shop bought products can often contain a huge dollop of chemicals to prolong their shelf lives.

But these chemicals, unfortunately, can (and do) create havoc with our skin, and even hormonal systems. It’s a cruel joke because we buy them to look better, but in certain cases they may add to skin disorders like acne, psoriasis, and eczema.

If you’re on a quest to revamp your diet and skin care, it’s important to do your research. There is a plethora of advice out there, but make sure you are taking it from someone who is trained in the beauty industry (or has the experience that lends credibility).

Take coconut oil, for example. This is a natural product which has over 100 different ways in which it can be used. I am a huge advocate for using natural products, and I actively use coconut oil in a lot of my daily rituals.

But it is not included in my face cleansing and moisturising ritual; this is because coconut oil is highly comedogenic, meaning that it is likely to clog your pores.
