I want to share with you a few genuine thoughts about my green story and how I decided to upgrade my make-up kit mostly with organic products.
Living a green lifestyle has been quite normal for me since ever, without even think about it! I grew up in a small but very gifted and green country Slovenia: we breathe fresh and clean air, we drink unpolluted water, a lot of people grow their own organic vegetables and fruits at home,…I was raised with the philosophy where cooking and high quality, unprocessed food was an obvious thing. So my first step towards a green lifestyle began with food and cooking.
Then I started to pay a lot of attention on how to clean my house and wash my clothes. In the past I had some health issues caused by chemicals. I’ve always felt that using chemical detergents was not good. My body was the best indicator whether something was good for me or not. So I also made changes in my home with the use of environment friendly cleansers or I even prepare them on my own. The next step was the shocking discovery that in cosmetics not everything is so beautiful and healthy as it seems. This happened soon after I had finished my Bachelor’s degree study about make-up. Again, I started to study and learn from people and books new approaches, centuries old knowledges, cosmetic ingredients and body-mind-spirit connection.
I have built my own concept of going green, with using mainly organic cosmetics, leading a more conscious lifestyle.
I haven’t chosen my path because of a trend, but because many things in the past that led me to change on personal level. I know that in every change there is a seed of a new opportunity and growth. I decided to do more for my own and other’s people beauty and health. One of the main reasons why I include green products in my makeup kit is the recognition that many ingredients in cosmetics are related to health issues. I want to be sure what I put on my skin. And I want the same for other people, whom I work with as a make-up artist. I feel that every change that we do in a positive way towards the humans, animals, nature – the entire planet Earth, is a step closer to a better living of everyone.
Beside being an artist and thus a life explorer in my soul, my journey led me to natural remedies – Bach Flower essences. I use them to help myself first; to improve my consciousness through deeper understanding of mind and emotions. With their help I discovered a step further – that not everything is caused only by outside factors like food or chemicals. The major part is inside of us.
Consequently, other people were led to me to try this gentle but very powerful method of healing from inside out. By careful observation, I saw on myself and others (even on those very sceptical people) the power of this method and the positive effect, when we open and don’t resist change.
