Resolution Is Everything

3rd January 2009

Still not sure what your 2009 New Year’s resolution should be? We’ve asked some Health & Beauty experts what they will be doing. Why not follow suit?

Martine Burford, co-founder of Pinner based organic beauty company, Ruby Red:

“Why not put your skin on a diet this year and downsize on the ingredients lists in your beauty regime? Check out the ingredient list on your favourite moisturiser and there’s likely to be an arm-long list of industrial strength ingredients staring back at you including parabens, artificial fragrances and synthetics. Try Ruby Red’s Organic Whipped Shea Butter, with only one ingredient and no chemical nasties, your skin will thank you for it. And you are what your skin eats.
