All through middle school and high school, I insisted on using your run-of-the-mill facial cleansers, which were, of course, laden with toxins and chemicals. To be honest, I can’t even remember anymore what brand I used to use, but I was very dedicated to it. I very rarely tried any other products, convinced that it was what helped keep my skin so clean. (Really, I think part of that was genetics!) I shudder now to think of all the chemicals to which I subjected my poor, pubescent (pre-, during, and post-) face during those years! Eventually, once I was more into adulthood, I switched to Aveeno, which wasn’t much better.
