There's something undeniably reassuring about putting something natural on your skin. Products that don't contain chemicals, that will not only be better for your skin, but which are also less likely to have a damaging effect on the environment. Below are my top five natural beauty products...
|No Nonsense Organic Hemp & Shea Real Skin Cream, £15 for 100ml|
Delivering truck loads of moisture to skin, while avoiding all chemicals, No Nonsense Real Skin Cream has been developed for face, body, hands and feet using 100% organic oils. I really love the Hemp & Shea Cream. From the tin the texture of this product is like a mousse, but one applied to skin, it melts, leaving you with super-soft skin that has a glossy shine (that'll be thanks to those organic oils!). The entire No Nonsense range is hypoallergenic, so it would make a great gift for a person with sensitive skin. Give it a whirl!
Aubrey Organics Rosa Mosqueta® is enriched with Rosa Mosqueta, macadamia and almond oils that will leave skin feeling super-soft. You can use this product in the shower or as a relaxing bath soak (which is my preference). The geranium and lavender fragrance will really relax you and leave your skin smelling fabulous too. All the ingredients are 100% natural, so you'll feel great, smell beautiful and feel good!
Naturally Upper Canada is a botanical body care range that's 97% natural; using botanically active ingredients while remaining free from nasty Parabens, mineral oils, SLS, and synthetic dyes. The Cranberry & Mono Orange Body Butter is really indulgent, and soaks into skin easily, keeping skin soft without feeling greasy. At just £8 for a big tub, this sweet-smelling body butter is a real bargain!
|vertese Skin, Hair and Eyes, £4.99 for 30 capsules|
It's always good to be healthy on the inside, as this will come through skin to keep you looking radiant on the outside. vertese is a health and beauty supplement brand where all products -as well as being vegan friendly -are derived from natural sources. I've been taking vertese Skin, Hair and Eyes recently - daily beauty capsules that contain Vitamin C and Zinc, for a healthy immune system; Biotin for healthy hair; Vitamin A which acts as an antioxidant and Lutein, which provides nutritional support to help keep eyes healthy and maintain normal vision. I've not found a supplement that does quite as much as this one - so it's now my beauty essential.
