We are being encouraged to be careful about what we eat and what we put inside our bodies. Everyone is either becoming a vegetarian, vegan or gluten-free. (Honestly, I can’t keep up) But I have joined the bandwagon and on a quest to be more healthy and natural, I plan to use only natural products on my skin and body.
This has been an expensive exercise to try different products and to finally settle on using products and brands that are eco-friendly and natural. Why did I decide to do this? Well, it is driven by self-preservation! I want to live long and I want to live well. The expensive products that we put on our skin have so many preservatives in fine print disguised behind expensive packaging. I started researching some of the ingredients meant to keep me looking young and fresh and was shocked that they were actually toxic!
Is buying natural and organic expensive, Yes!! We live in a world where good things often come at a price. But there are many brands that are natural and organic without the hefty price tag. Stay tuned for recommendations on some of the products I have tried and want to share with you.
