For Rola it all started when she turned 18. She used to get lots of compliments for her porcelain smooth skin. This encouraged her to take more care of her skin to keep it glowing. She realised that the normal skin care products that she bought had bad reactions on her skin from dry skin to bad breakouts. Since then, she developed an interest in making her own natural skincare products. Her main interest was making her own face moisturiser. The best blend she believed she ever made herself consisted of the following ingredients: avocado, honey and lemon. To her, avocado softens and hydrates the skin. Honey is rich in antioxidants which makes the skin look younger and lemon works as a peeler that regenerates the dead skin cells. She believes the more you know about plants, the more you can make different natural products for different uses. It’s amazing how many treasures are hidden in our nature.

I have for long been fascinated by the healing power of vaseline on the skin having grown up on a farm. From curing cuts to evening out blisters and softening the palms. I later on took interest in studying more natural remedies and their benefits. I love discovering more recipes for making skincare products with natural ingredients.

I've always gotten compliments about my skin from a really young age. I never seemed to get any acne, until I reached my late teens. I experienced a horrible case of acne and struggled with my acne for quite some time. I then began using natural facial cleansers and slowly but surely, my skin started to clear up. Today, I barely get any acne and my skin is as smooth as it used to be. Now, I make use of natural facial cleansers and moisturisers to maintain my skin. I keep learning everyday and it only keeps getting better!
