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