Organic Beauty Ramblings...

Sunday, April 15, 2012

It all began with my introduction to organic foods in college. Next came the scouring of most home surfaces with Borax- an all natural cleaner. Then it was deodorant. Now it's creeping its way into every aspect of my beauty regiment- organic & natural products!! Whether Burt's Bees, Lulu Organics, or Juice Beauty, it is no secret that I am a fan of 'natural'. Three cheers for keeping it simple!

To me, natural & organic beauty products scream this fundamental principle: 'Less is MORE!' 
A fabulous Juice Beauty peel that I received in my February Birchbox. Love this little guy.
Somewhere along the way we started adding WAY too many unnecessary fillers in everything from chicken to beauty products and well- I'm rebelling!! I simply refuse to subject my body to all of the 'extras' so to speak. 

With cancer and other scary diseases at an all time high- I'm taking the 'preventative medicine' approach and have learned to embrace the concept that we will either pay now or pay later. Pay slightly more now for organic & natural beauty products that are free of chemicals & preservatives or pay later (at a much higher price) for treatment and care of scary illnesses. I'll embrace the former. 

I like to think of our bodies as a sponge. We see a perfect example of this in the way our skin absorbs lotion over a period of a few minutes. We are essentially 'feeding' our skin. Let's make a commitment to feed it well with natural products that are actually filled with GOOD ingredients, like fruits & veggies! Back in February I composed a DIY Home Day Spa blog. In this post I feature a lovely little face mask that is 100% natural and made up of fruit and honey- that's it! And let me tell you, it leaves your skin feeling amazing. 

Let's give our bodies what they are craving... Natural & organic beauty products rock!
