I feel like I’ve written an abundance of articles lately on natural deodorant. I didn’t even know that natural deodorant was a thing until a few months ago. I dabbled into it for a while and then decided to fully make the switch, and I’m so glad that I did. It really is important to understand what you are putting onto your skin and into your body, and to evaluate what products you use on a daily basis that could be affecting your health and your skin. Deodorant is one of those staple products that you use (or should use) everyday. But what ingredients are inRead More →

The word ‘natural’ is a very broad term that, in the general scope of things, can have many definitions. Natural could mean something created or caused by nature, something made entirely natural with no ‘unnatural’ ingredients, or something claiming to be natural but still made with preservatives and chemicals.

Once I discovered that the products I had been using all my life purchased from grocery stores and drugstores play a correlational role in theRead More →

I have become so obsessed with lengthy bedtime skincare routines. I used to only stick to one or two products before bed but I realized it wasn’t really doing much for my skin, and once I started ordering more beauty subscription boxes, I was getting awesome organic/natural products that I found easy to incorporate into my everyday routine. Below is an example of a typical routine that I would do on a weeknight. I switch it up everyday and use different products; so on a Monday I may use a face mask and on a Tuesday I may use a face scrub, it depends onRead More →
