Do you have a foundation that you give to, or a cause you support? Show it off in statement accessories. These can be armbands made of recycled material, woolen scarves and hair ties, bags of repurposed cloth, wooden sunglasses and watches, and other similar wardrobe additions. It doesn’t need to be over-the-top; classy, subtle items would do just as well. Save sharing the story for when it’s complimented or mentioned.
We know you’ve experienced this: a perfectly normal conversation on a pretty good day that turns sour because your bra starts to chafe or itch on your skin. Or, you suddenly notice the bra line is obvious under your shirt or dress. Rather than risk that sudden discomfort, invest in t-shirt bras for your everyday needs. The seamless bra lies flat, and molds itself to your breasts and shoulders, for maximum comfort. And as we all know, comfort is one of the best confidence boosters.
In addition to your investments in external skin care, make an investment in internal skin care. Aloe concentrates help your body absorb vitamins and nutrients better. Your skin uses those vitamins and nutrients to boost its health, leading to less dryness and more glow. Aloe vera also protects your skin from the sun, repairs damage, and stands against wrinkles and fine lines. Protecting your skin inside and out is key to maintaining its health.
Maybe as a kid, you used to read the ingredients list on products to try the tongue-twisting compound chemicals. However, the older you get, the more important those ingredient lists become to your health. Organic tampons are no different. Not only do they source organically grown and processed materials, they help you ensure you are using only the most natural products on your body.
Green tea concentrates
Green tea concentrates do two equally amazing things: they cleanse your body, and they make great natural facial wash. With a strong antioxidant called catechins, it can even help your body fight off destructive diseases like cancer. It boosts your metabolism and helps your body use and consume fat for better health. At the same time, when steeped in cool water and splashed over the face, it cleanses and moisturizes the skin. (It’s budget-friendly, too!)
Mineral foundation lets your skin breathe—and that’s already a great reason to invest in it. While chemical compounds clog your pores and smother your natural skin oils, loosely pressed mineral foundation is different. It sits lightly on your skin, blends with your natural facial oils, and doesn’t clog your pores. Just by choosing the right foundation, you already lessen skin damage and stress. The natural look is also sure to complement your outfit of the day.
Before choosing any beauty item for yourself, think, “Is this something that will boost me from the inside out? Will it help me maintain my health and appearance in the long-term?” If the answer is yes, then you know it’s an investment you need to make.
