Sooo I totally jumped on that whole healthy eating train but totally failed to realize (until the last few months) that everyday health and beauty products are also full of junk!
I was so worried about eating right and not putting certain things into my body when it came to eating that I just didn’t pay attention to anything else.
Of course, I’m not 100% perfect because I still love my Hot Cheetos but I have become a lot more conscious than I used to be.
As of late, I’ve been doing what I can to find healthier options for me without becoming too obsessive and extreme.
Let’s be honest, I am in no way ready to commit to all organic everything-
1. Because it gets super expensive
2. I am not even close to being ready to part with my favorite mascara, Maybelline Falsies.
Here are a few of my favorite “worry free” beauty products that I have switched over to and just loveeeeee.
I started breaking out on my back and it’s been freaking me out (insert crying emoji here).
I stopped alcohol and sugar (still off the sugar for my health) but it was still happening soooo I started to think it was the shampoo and conditioner I was using.
I found this brand at Target and it made me pretty happy. It’s only $10 a bottle and has a super short list of ingredients. I started comparing the shampoo I was using to others I wanted and realized how long those ingredients lists are. SCARYYY. Next time you’re in the shower, check it out.
This is a brand I was recommended but have yet to try. They are a little pricier but probably one of the better, less expensive “safe” brands out there! R+Co
When the breakouts started, I immediately switched out my body wash for this amazingggg soap! It’s organic, it’s fair trade and it smells SO good.
I hate showers. A lot. Like, so many other things I can get done with those 20 minutes and while I’m showering, all I’m thinking about are those things. The lavender really helps calm me down and enjoy my free time in the shower.
Seriously, love this stuff and you can also find it at Target or your local health food store!
I’ve done my essential oil posts before (here and here) but I’ve collected many more since then. doTerra is my absolute fave because they are so pure that you can ingest most of them. There are soooo many benefits to essential oils and they really help cure you in a natural way.
I LOVEEE to put the citrus oils in my water.
For stress, I am all about the lavender, serenity and balance. We have a diffuser in our bedroom and diffuse these oils nightly. It really relaxes you and helps you sleep more soundly.
Melaleuca is great for itchy scalp or zit zapper.
Deep Blue is my savior when it comes to working out and sore muscles.
I seriously could go on and on and on but there are just sooo many!
doTerra also makes an amazing toothpaste! I’m all about the anise-y, cinnamon-y taste and who doesn’t want an all natural teeth whitener?! Places like Sprouts, Whole Foods and Mother’s have some great natural toothpastes as well so be sure to test them all out until you find the one you like!
These salt sticks are my favorite way to deodorize because they work great, last forever and are actually safe! So many deodorants these days have harsh chemicals in them to prevent you from perspiring but that is so bad. SO bad. All those nasty toxins stay inside of you, build up and can cause breast cancer. Nooo thank you! Let’s save the tatas together!
I’m also huge on using coconut oil as a moisturizer. I bought two HUGE jars at Costco and use one for cooking and one for the bod.
SO amazing and so silky smooth!
Long post but had to share! What are some of your favorite “worry free” beauty products? I’m always looking for more!
