What an amazing weekend I had!
Last weekend I MC’d the natural beauty stage at the Natural & Organic Super Show and I was blown away by the response. You guys are awesome! Thank you for everyone who came and watched me and our other lovely speakers present at the natural beauty stage. I spoke over three days on what’s hot, trends and myths and I can tell you natural and organic beauty is so hot right now.
There was an abundance of natural and organic skin care stalls in attendance over the weekend, which I thoroughly enjoyed getting to know better. It was bigger than a recent beauty trade show I had attended, and that speaks volumes. It’s obvious the industry is growing and it looks like it will soon take over the traditional cosmetic market.
Over 3 huge days we talked all things natural and organic health. This is something people clearly are very engaged with still as the show was packed out with people all weekend. Learning all about health and wellbeing from trending super foods, information on food allergies, experts and chefs talking nutrition and food. It was seriously the best show I’ve attended.
So here’s a run down of what we got up to at the beauty stage:
I spoke on 2 topics, Green Washing and What’s Hot, Trends and Myths, and trust me, there are a LOT of myths when it comes to beauty and natural beauty out there! Natural Beauty Expert is constantly working to help our readers navigate these myths.
ALISON KENNY gave us a demonstration on how to achieve daily make-up for busy women. She took us through 5 steps on how to apply everyday makeup for women on the go with her gorgeous ALEXAMI mineral makeup.
ADELE McCONNEL talked beauty food each day. Her popular Vegiehead blog draw a crowd as she took us through essential beauty foods to have you looking and feeling your best. Adele also talked about her new lipstick line Dusk By Adele, which has already sold out! Adele was also signing copies for her new book The Vegan Cookbook, which of course I grabbed!
CRYSTAL FIELDHOUSE from Ecology Skin Care took us through skin and the stress factor. Crystal spoke about how to minimize stress to support your skin from her own experiences of acne and dermatitis. Crystal is launching her own online program to help people reduce their daily stress, which will run in conjunction to her current podcast Mind Body Beauty.
DR IRENE PRANTALOS (TCM) Talk us about healing the tricky skin issues through Traditional Chinese Medicine methods. Irene helps her clients create healthy skin from within with simple dietary changes. She also has her own line of skincare Salubre, which is not only toxic free but has key ingredients from TCM to really help with psoriasis and eczema.

I was so thrilled to meet everyone and re-connect with old contacts I haven’t seen for a while. I am looking forward to future collaborations to bring awesome natural beauty trends and resources to you from my peers who I also look up to.
Can’t wait for next years show!
