Cosmetic & Beauty Products

It is just as important to put clean, chemical-free products on your skin as it is to eat clean foods. Your skin is your largest organ and all the lotions, perfumes, cosmetics, etc that we put on our skin gets absorbed and wind up in our bodies.

When purchasing products look for ones that do not contain the following:
-Diethanolamine (DEA), Triethanolamine (TEA)
-Diazolidinyl Urea, Imidazolidinyl Urea
-Sodium Lauryl/Laureth Sulfate
-Propylene Glycol
-PVP/VA Copolymer
-Stearalkonium Chloride
-Synthetic Colors or Fragrances

Here are some of my favorite natural beauty products:
Zuzu Luxe Powder Foundation by Gabriel Cosmestics

Gabriel products are made from 100% natural ingredients. No synthetic chemicals or animal by-products are utilized, and no testing is ever done on animals.

I'll admit it, I use to go tanning. It was my one vice. Some people can't give up their coffee, well I couldn't give up my tanning..That was until about 5 or 6 months ago when I finally decided to save my skin from future damage, as well as save my money! I definitely like tanned skin better, so with Lavera I can get some color without the consequences! I love this stuff!

Favorite Mascara: Korres Provitamin B5 & Rice Bran Mascara

Favorite Blush: Korres

Korres cosmetics are formulated without:
- Parabens
- Sulfates

Their Pomegranate makeup removing wipes are great too!

Ever since I found such great all natural beauty products I won't ever go back to putting chemicals on my skin!

Also, I went and saw Eat, Pray, Love and it was adorable! Such a cute girly movie, totally worth seeing. I especially loved getting to see Italy, India and Bali. It makes me want to travel!! I have already been to Italy but would love to go back! I am also dying to go to Spain.

Where are some of the places you MUST travel to?

Enjoy your day!!
