It’s perfect for nourishing cuticles, too. For silky skin, massage it in daily, concentrating on dry areas between the fingers."
Why we love Natural Ingredients
We share Victorias minimalist approach to beauty as well as her love of natural ingredients and self-care. She treats her body like a temple, working out daily and drinking water and lemon each morning 'for good skin.'
She also swears by an all-natural DIY face mask for keeping her skin, glowing, plump, and hydrated.
It's great that Victoria is so into natural ingredients and we are very grateful for the mention. We have heard that she is launching a new beauty range for women over 40 and it will have a stong focus on natural ingredients.
