The ability to prepare and create every day new products makes you a creative person. A person that loves trying always new ingredients, discovering their properties and benefits for your skin. I started with the formulation of beauty products during a tough period of my life. In that time, I was sad and not satisfied of my working situation. So I tried something to relax a bit; go far away from the screen of my pc and do something more concrete. Although peaceful, I tried painting and drawing but I didn't get a really satisfaction once finished. So I decided to start with the DIY of beauty products. The first attempt was a disaster. Before understanding that was a failure, I insisted to use it. I went out with a greasy face due to the incorrect formulation. When my boyfriend said to me that he would never use that cream, I realised that I had to improve and learn from my mistakes. I started looking through my old books of the uni and everyday I was more motivated to know why an ingredient was better that another. I started step by step. First with easy formulations and then improving them by adding more ingredients. Now, I let that my creativity runs away obtaining every time a cream different from the previous one. I hope that this could be also for you!!
