Healthy Beauty Series I. – What’s Behind The Labels; Organic, Natural & Non-Toxic

As you’ve might recognized, there is more & more about natural & organic beauty on The Sparkling Blueberry. This is because since I’ve got pregnant, my mindset drastically changed, and however I was always conscious on other fields of my life (like food, or household) I got easily carried away by nice packaging and high-end labels when it comes to makeup and skincare.

But since the summer of 2015 this has been changed and as I’m changing and learning a new approach to beauty the same thing happening with my blog too. As part of my transition I’d like to introduce a new series on the blog which is a kind of step-by-step guide to healthy beauty and more.

How Fast-Food Ruins Your Beauty?

How Fast-Food Ruins Your Beauty?

Since I moved to Dubai, my eating habits are changed 360 degrees.
