Natural and Organic Skin-Care Products I’m Currently Using

As much as we may not want to believe this, 64-100 percent of what we put on our skin is absorbed into the bloodstream (National Institutes of Health). That’s why I am constantly searching for skin-care products that not only perform well, but also are the healthiest I can find.

In this video, I introduce terrific new finds I’ve been using for the past four months-plus, as well as a few old favorites.

I’ve also been using a new, simple DIY concoction that makes a great lotion. I use it primarily for my hands and feet, but you can also use it on your face.

DIY Face/Hand/Body Moisturizer

What You’ll Need:

Shea Butter

Coconut Oil (Only $18.99/30 oz Jar at Whole Foods)

Glass Cosmetic Jar

Directions: Scoop shea butter into small glass jar. Add coconut oil until achieve desired consistency. Stir with clean finger or toothpick. Keep by bedside (to apply to hands/cuticles/feet before bed) and by the kitchen sink (to apply to hands after dishwashing or before leaving the house).

  1. Because of your recommendation, I am going to try the black tea mascara.
    I have not had good luck with so many because allergies.
    Thanks for the tip. Love your blog; keep it up.

    Hope all is well with you. I am doing great/

    • Hi, Pat! I do hope you like it. I love how I can build it up to make my lashes lookthick and long, or wear less and just make them look glossy and dark. I like having the choice — and not having to worry whether it’s going to be harmful. Thank you so much for continuing to follow my blog, Pat. I really appreciate it. All is well with me. I’m glad you’re doing great. Hugs ~Janis
