I remember being introduced to organic and natural beauty products probably around 10 years ago! And since then, I’ve been trying to use more natural lines within my regular beauty routine. With so many beauty lines out there, we should pay more attention to the ingredients we slather onto our skin. I’ve been told that we absorb up to 60% of the ingredients into our bloodstream through our skin. That’s a lot, considering this includes shampoo, body lotions, even lipstick that can be ingested. Using organic or natural based products are probably a healthier alternative. Here are some of my favourites that were also used in the look created above :
Ole Henriksen African Red Tea Foaming Cleanser
Love this cleanser, it smells amazing. It was also named the best natural cleanser at the Natural Health Beauty Awards. It is also free of parabens, sulfates, phthalates, synthetic ingredients, fragrance and soap.
Miyu Beauty De-Stress Beauty Essence
A facial mist with the rich nutrients of a serum, this product is created using as many natural ingredients as possible using the philosophies of ancient Chinese medicine.
Jurlique Soothing Day Care Lotion
A lightweight, soothing moisturizer for sensitive skin that uses calendula and safflower oil to help soften and restore skin.
Glo-Minerals Pressed Base Powder Foundation in Natural Medium
A mineral makeup foundation that is talc-free, non-comedogenic and fortified with an exclusive antioxidant blend. This product is free of perfumes and chemical dyes, making it suitable for very sensitive skin like mine!
