As an indie natural beauty entrepreneur, I care deeply about sustainability both within my business and personal life. I have been implementing many initiatives to be more sustainable and to educate consumers about the role they play in the environment and the sustainability of the earth. In fact, caring about the environment has been a business value since our inception in 2014 and last year I made it my personal mission to try to switch all of our packaging to a more sustainable option. Find out why you need to start caring more!
After much of our own research and polling all the experts' reports in skincare, we have summed up the 2020 clean skincare and beauty trends for the everyday woman, not the LA-fame type of Kardashian women, but just the every day yoga-going, Lululemon wearing, doing it all and owning it, kinda woman.
We have summed up these beauty trends of spring 2020 and also feel these will be relevant for the whole of the year, and maybe even intensifying throughout this whole decade to come. These five simple and clean beauty trends really may just be the future of skincare as women seek to find more simple, clean and natural ways to bring their natural beauty to a new level of radiance through self-ritualized practices that are done at home, rather than paying for expensive treatments at the derm or cosmetic enhancement centre!
Face feeling tired and dull? Lacklustre? Dry? Just open your fridge and pantry to find the answers to mix up into a custom face mask to restore your glowing complexion.
Face masks are one of my favourite skin care products, especially when you want an instant glow for the holidays or special occasions. They’re easy to apply, fun to use and are great at delivering results often after one or two weekly applications. My favourite thing about applying a good face mask is the feeling of tightened and toned skin after a single use.
This is a common question that I get asked. With the uprise of facial oils in Western Society, it is a good one to ask for certain. Whether you have oily, acne prone skin or dry skin, you may also be wondering about the facial oil hype and whether or not it is the right skincare solution for you. The magical panacea you have been longing for perhaps. On the flip side, I've even had some people have a complete meltdown as an adult when oil touches their face because they still remember being covered in pimples as a teenager just for coming anywhere near oil on their sensitive, hormonal faces.
If you haven't yet introduced any facial oils into your skincare ritual, I highly recommend you overcome your fears and embrace the oil. In fact, in Eastern cultures women have been using plant based oils abundantly for thousands of years. And their gorgeous, youthful complexions certainly show it.
Back to school time is around the corner. It is a time of much anxiety and also sadness as the carefree days of summer end for thousands of school-agers and teenagers who are heading out to do their back to school shopping and facing the uncertainty of what the coming school year will bring. Help your teens feel more confident about their body odour and acne issues with natural solutions that treat these common challenges without the use of harsh chemicals.
For the majority of us, mornings are hectic and it seems almost impossible to get out the door on time. The thought of adding another thing to do in the morning probably makes you cringe, but before you jump to that conclusion, hear me out.
I first stumbled across the idea of dry brushing in a magazine article years ago. With further research I was intrigued to try it out and see if my body would stop feeling constantly cold. To my surprise not only did it help my circulation, but my skin was left glowing and soft.
