Our bodies are constantly exposed to toxins from pollution, pesticides, household products, and more. These chemical nasties are even lurking in your beauty products, which can cause skin irritation. When it comes to your beauty routine, don’t let toxins sneak into your skin. Turn your routine “green” by swapping out store-bought products with pure and simple organic oils:
1. Shea All Day
The vitamins, minerals, and fatty acids makes shea butter extremely moisturizing and hydrating for your skin. Use Shea Butter to soften those dry, rough areas like your elbows, knees, and feet.
2. Go Coco-nuts
Coconut oil is the holy grail when it comes to your beauty regimen. Coconut oil works amazing as a natural makeup remover, even on waterproof mascara! Place a generous amount of Coconut Oil on a cotton pad and gently swipe to remove your makeup.
3. The Nitty Gritty
Oil cleansing is a chemical-free method that removes dirt, but won’t strip your skin of its natural oils. Massage Jojoba Oil onto your face, wet a washcloth with warm water, then slowly wipe the oil away. Jojoba oil is packed with essential fatty acids that keep your skin and hair moisturized.
4. Strong Strands
Castor oil is full of an essential omega-9 fatty acid called ricinoleic acid that makes it perfect for softening and hydrating your strands. A great hair thickener, use Castor Oil to on your eyelashes, eyebrows, and scalp.
5. Nailed It
Argan oil is incredibly nourishing, loaded with Vitamin E and essential fatty acids. Apply a drop of Argan Oil to each nail daily for beautiful, shiny nails.
Looking your best doesn’t have to be expensive or unnatural. Swapping conventional beauty products for these rich emollients is a super simple way to green your beauty routine. What green beauty swaps have you made? Comment below and let us know!
