Rachael Pontillo is a functional nutrition practitioner and a licensed aesthetician, herbalist, and skincare formulator. She teaches women how to make their own products without synthetic ingredients that do more harm than good. Anti-aging is hijacking young women’s lives as they strive for an unattainable beauty standard that cannot be bought. Rachael teaches you how to age gracefully by doing less and allowing your skin to go through its natural cycles.
When buying any product it is important to identify harmful ingredients masquerading as Vitamins because they just do not offer the same nutrients as a natural source would. Many of these synthetic compounds have not been around long enough to even know what the long-term effects are.
Rachael teaches you what to look for and what to avoid. Ultimately though, she encourages you to ask yourself, why do you need any product at all? If you are spending money, time, and energy using products that are harmful and really cannot stop aging products, what is the purpose? By focusing on a healthy lifestyle, instead of relying on products, you can boost your skin’s natural ability to heal itself without expensive or harmful intervention and age gracefully.
