Natural Body Products
I'm happy to say that I'm confident that I've finally mastered my list of skincare products.
1. Yes to Cucumbers Gentle Milk Cleanser
-This face wash is made with 98% natural ingredients and it doesn't strip the skin of natural moisture like just about all non-natural face washes I have used in the past.
-Although it's a bit more expensive than other face washes, I find it to be very affordable considering how natural it is.
-$8.99 for a 6 fl oz bottle
2. Yes to Blueberries Daily Repairing Moisturizer
-This moisturizer is extremely light and made from 97% natural ingredients. If I'm going to be wearing makeup I love using this product to moisturize before putting on my tinted sunscreen foundation. Otherwise I use this to moisturize at night when I won't be in the sun being that it doesn't have any SPF in it.
3. Banana Boat Kids Sunscreen
-I love this product, I apply it to my face, neck, and ears every morning before I go for my run, or whenever I'm not wearing tinted sunscreen foundation. To my surprise, since using this product my face has completely cleared of acne. I think the reasoning for this may be that it's waterproof so when I go for my run my face no longer gets covered in pore clogging sweat. It's also great knowing that I always at least have a bit of protection from the sun.
-In addition, I'm very prone to heat rash, especially on my neck. Religiously applying this sunscreen to my neck each morning has been diminished my heat rash.
4. Baking Soda Face Mask
-Combine 2 tbsp of Baking soda with 1 tbsp of cool water, stir and apply to face. Let it sit on your face for 5 minutes and then wash off with luke warm water.
-This mask is so easy to make, it's 100% natural, and it helps to unclog pores and gives your face a fresh, clean look.
5. Arm and Hammer Essentials Deodorant
-Actually keeps the stench away (I've tried many other more natural deodorants which all left me so stinky), this one actually protects against armpit stench, even after a long run in the heat!
6. Tom's Toothpaste
-Leaves mouth feeling extra clean
-I don't go to the dentist often but when I do I'm normally told that I have at least one cavity. The last time I went to the dentist for the first time in two years, I was cavity free, it's possible that switching to this toothpaste had at least a little to do with it?!
7. Vida Green Consulting Products
-Vida Green Consulting is a local Austin, TX company that makes the very best all natural products, each and every product is worth trying
-I personally use the Rosemary, Mint + Jojoba Facial Cleanser (my absolute favorite), Charcoal Face Wash, and Grapefruit Facial Spray (I use this everyday)
8. Rae Cosmetics
-I happened to stumble upon the BEST makeup line... RAE Cosmetics. I only have wonderful things to say about this brand.
-It's light, you can wear it while you workout, it contains natural ingredients, it's a great price for the high quality, it leaves your skin looking amazing and doesn't clog pores.
-Products I use:
1. Climate Control Mineral Tint: $42 (I use the 85 degrees)
2. Concealer: $20 (I use Peach)
