There are many synthetic man-made ingredients which are absolute no go's. There are others that are harmless, and some can be highly effective in smoothing, soothing and plumping skin. The reason we love naturally derived ingredients is because some of these 'ok' synthetic ingredients are being proven to have negative affects on our bodies when combined with other 'ok' ingredients, and others are being shown to have negative long term effects on the rejuvenating properties of our skin. So we believe avoiding them completely is a safest solution

Over time, as our skin tries to cope with these foreign or unnatural ingredients, it can become weakened and more susceptible to further damage. This damage makes us more exposed to pollutants, free radicals, dryness and sensitivities that impact ageing and overall skin health

There are a number of ways to make soap and like all skincare some are great, some can be harmful to our skin. The synthetic detergents (SLS, SLES) and non-vegetable oil bases used to create non-natural soap can remove the natural protective layer of fatty acids and essential bacteria which keep it moisturised and protected from infections. This quickly leads to dry, inflamed and sometimes acne prone skin. Avoid non-natural soap for consistently healthy skin
Drinking it is fine, hell it’s great, in moderation, just avoid products that use alcohol (ethanol). It’s used to give products a weightless finish, to help the skin absorb other ingredients, and to dry out oily areas. However to do all that alcohol breaks down the very substances that keep skin healthy over the long term, triggers free-radical damage, and makes oily skin and redness worse because our body attempts to counteract the effects of alcohol. Avoid any products with non-naturally derived fatty alcohols
Give up the cigarettes, seriously. Internal health issues aside, smoking releases enzymes that stop the production of collagen and elastin necessary to keep skin looking youthful and promotes wrinkles and frown lines to form around the mouth. You can usually tell a smoker by their skins highly visible discolouration and progressed ageing. An anti-ageing no no
