LOVE YOUR BODY: Natural Products

Everything you put in your body makes a difference. But did you know that everything you put ON your body also makes a difference?! Your skin is considered the largest organ in the body. Its job is to protect but ALSO to absorb. Our skin absorbs everything from Vitamin D to fragrances and chemicals. So YES, it is absolutely important to know what you are putting on your skin.


Over the years, we are FINALLY learning that natural is best. But, these days, "natural" is tricky. A bottle of lotion may claim "natural" on their labeling but if you look at the ingredients, it's anything but natural. Similar to "natural" peanut butters whose first ingredient still manages to be sugar. Tricky.

And so, with years of trialing natural products, researching ingredients, and refusing to buy outrageously expensive beauty products, let me take a load off for you. The list below includes my top natural necessity products:

  1. Soap - Dove Sensitive Skin Beauty Bar, Unscented (1)

  2. Deodorant - Native Cotton & Lily (5)

  3. Shampoo - Avalon Organics (2)

  4. Conditioner - Avalon Organics (2)

  5. Moisturizer - Argan Oil

  6. Lotion - Everyone Lotion, Lavender + Aloe (3)
