Hello everyone! After a nice 3.7 mile run and dinner (with a shower in between, obviously ;)), here I am to talk about something I love, organic beauty products.
Most people worry about what they eat: whether it is good or bad for us, whether its highly refined or in its natural form: I know I most certainly do ;).
But do you ever stop and think about not only what goes into your body, but also what goes on your body?
There once was a little girl ( or maybe not that little since we’re talking about beauty products? ;)) who couldn’t care less about the ingredients in the products she used: all she wanted was for it to be functional and, most importantly, cheap enough so a student (as she was) could buy it. She would pay attention to ads and buy only appealing products.
Said little girl had often heard about how a lot of chemicals in beauty products weren’t good for the skin and the environment, but she never really cared; until one day she was curious enough that she decided to read about said ingredients.
Needless to say, she was shocked from what she found: so many ingredients are toxic both for humans and for the environments, and most products are based on petroleum; why would anyone want to purposefully cover their skin in it? After that, she started to look for organic and environmentally conscious beauty products, and was astonished to discover there are many! She learned to recognize the good and the bad ingredients, so she could read labels on her own. She also discovered that many beauty products can be made at home, some with normal ingredients that everyone has, and other with less common ingredients, and both were very fun to make!
So what are the products I use?
Some of them you probably don’t know because they’re Italian, but I’ll put them anyway.
Natural Facial wash with Aloe Vera. Bioearth
Face moisturizer for normal and dry skin. Bjobj.
Desert Flower shampoo and Herbal Conditioner.Miessence.
As for body moisturizer, I use a cream I made myself! Recipe soon to come 😉
