How I Took Care of My Skin Issues

How I Took Care of My Skin Issues

As a kid, I’ve always been a person who created things; whether it was drawing pictures for my parents, making doll houses out of cardboard boxes, or even doll clothes out of the scraps from my mom’s sewing area. I was a tomboy growing up and playing outside being active was something I always love doing. Like most children, I never thought I’d be allergic to anything. I thought I was invincible, lol. My skin issues wasn’t a concern until I became older when I would use store bought products. I noticed my skin would have dry patches and would be itchy when I get out of the shower. Also, little rash bumps would appear when I applied lotions. I said to myself, “what in the world is happening to my skin”? It must be something I’m putting on that’s making it so irritated.

That’s when I decided to figure out what was going on. Not knowing much about anything, I gathered up all the products I was using and looked up all the ingredients on the back. I had NO CLUE what these ingredients were, so you know what I did…..you guessed it….I hit up Google. Long story short, I soon realized that the products that I was using were not skin friendly and the minute I stop using them my  irritation started to decrease. My skin went back to normal (thank goodness). So now what you ask? Well, I stumbled upon a DIY lotion on the internet and decided to give it try. It worked! Since then, I’ve been making my own. I started to do more research on creating soaps and other natural products that our skin can actually benefit from without all the harsh chemicals. From there, I created my own formula and in doing so “Martous Naturals” was born.
