I’m not a doctor or a nutritionist, but I have a theory; We get out of our body what we put in it. When I was pregnant, I worked hard to eat organically. I was so particular about what I put into my body. Then one day it dawned on me, that I am surrounded by chemicals.
Suddenly, I realized that I needed to pay attention to not just what I put inside, but what I put on my body as well. Duh, right?
I realized that I was using the best products to clean my house, my hair, my skin with the best results, but that these products where all chemical. So, I slowly started making changes… I started using vinegar and lemon to clean, and changed out all of my hair, and skin cleaners. (I haven’t quite given up my beloved M.A.C. make-up). Here are three easy products that you can switch to organic over chemicals.
Face Wash: I have received so many compliments on my skin. Prior to being pregnant, I used Obagi but cut it (and Botox) when I was pregnant. I went back, but recently I switched to a mix of Obagi and organic products. Read more here.
Hair: I switched to Aveda Shampure shampoo and conditioner which was a bonus because I have extremely hard water and it leaves my hair so clean and build-up free. I splurge annually on the HUGE bottles, which lasts for a very long time.
Body: LUSH Happy Hippy. OMG. I love it. For lotion, I am loving Beautycounter right now.
While all of these produces are pricey, I have gotten a solid six (6) months or more out of all of these products. I haven’t done my research on organic makeup and nail polish, but I will keep you posted on that.
Organic products will not give you the best results. Period. Chemicals were developed to do the job that Mother Nature couldn’t do. But I am done taking the risk. Are you?
