Michael Pollan Quote - Eat FoodWouldn’t it be great if we could all be a natural beauty? Although you may think that you need to drop a ton of cash at the beauty counter, it’s not necessarily a must. True, there are many treatments that offer numerous benefits to skin, but there are also many things we can do that don’t cost much at all.

Here are 6 natural beauty tips that won’t break the bank:

  1. Fall in Love. (We know. Easier said than done. But, if you can…) Scientists have discovered that ‘love struck’ couples have high levels of the neurotransmitter dopamine in their brains. Dopamine is involved in proper skin functioning and a healthy appearance as it supports an appropriate supply of blood to the cells by increasing circulation. Hello, natural blush!
  2. They Don’t Call it Beauty Sleep for Nothing. Nighttime is when skin regenerates and repairs itself. Try to get seven hours a night as often as possible. And make sleep a priority – it’s a necessity, not a luxury. And no, you can’t catch up on weekends.
  3. Exercise. Not only good for the waistline and the heart, it’s also good for the skin. Exercise helps deliver oxygen and nutrients to the skin and will keep you young-looking and healthy. Research out of McMaster University in Ontario, found that people over the age of 40 who exercise regularly have healthier skin. In fact, the study showed their skin to be closer in composition to that of 20- and 30-year-olds.
  4. Calm Down! Stress releases hormones like cortisol that can exacerbate acne and breakouts. Take mini breaks during the day to walk or chat with friends. Calming activities trigger your brain to quit producing cortisol, a pimple culprit.
  5. Minimize squinting. Squinting can accentuate and lead to fine lines. Wear sunglasses even when it’s cold and cloudy as UVA rays – those responsible for skin aging – still seep through.
  6. Eat Well. What constitutes eating well has become a very complex topic indeed, making it increasingly difficult to go there. I don’t think any of us can dispute it’s a good idea to load up on your leafy greens. Beyond that, I think Michael Pollan summarizes it best, “Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants.”

My Fave Four Apothekari products

The first product I purchased from Apothekari was the A for Anti Aging. I have Never been able to tolerate retinol products and always ended up bailing because of dry flaky skin. Until A for Anti Aging. It's Amazing! I have now added the Vitamin C, the Deodorant (Neroli Rose is my current favourite but the Lavender is great too), and most recently the More than Lip Service (thank you thank you thank you Apothekari :)). While deodorant and vaginal moisturizer may sound like odd gifts, these are my latest go-to's for the gal who has everything. All have become fans!

THIS WORKS! No odour for 24+ hours including a yoga session!

I'm blown away by how effective this is, and by how clean and well thought out the formula is. I'm not used to roll-on so that took a couple days to adjust to, but its so much more effective than the solids/creams i was using that it is totally worth it. I'm converted - and i think i have probably tried 90% of the natural deodorants out there over the last 10 years LOL. thank you for creating this.

I love this body oil!

This is so luxurious and moisturizing (i have dry, sensitive skin and most oils don't do the trick) and also miraculously absorbs very quickly. And the lemon rose scent is just transporting - i look forward to using this after my shower.

Bespoke Vitamin C Serum

I love it! Been using it for years. It’s so perfect to put on right after I wash in the morning. I’ve never been the greatest at sticking to a skin care routine but using the Vitamin C in the morning and A is for Anti-aging at night consistently over the years has kept my skin young and firm.
Would not want to imagine life (or my skin) without these two essentials. Thank you Sharmani!

*Received as press sample*

Pricing per bottle is definitely up there, but I think much like skincare, if you have struggled to find a deodorant that works for you, the price won't be as much of an issue because something like this can have a huge impact on your life. One bottle should last about 3-4 months with daily use which I think is fairly close to most deodorants. While I know there are baking soda-free options (baking soda can cause skin irritations due to pH disruptions) and options that use Deoplex, I have yet to find a combination of Deoplex and lactic acid which may be what's working for me. Honestly, the only thing I didn't enjoy was that "wet" feeling when I would first apply it, but after 15 seconds it dries down AND it doesn't stain clothing so that's a huge plus. Even though I received this as a press sample, I would buy this deodorant on my own as I didn't just smell good at the end of a long day, but I smelled like absolutely NOTHING which is WAY better to me than smelling like "I'm covering something up" or like body odour. I also trust and appreciate the research I know Apothekari has invested into making sure the formulation is scientifically sound so I know that's also partly where my dollars are going. I only need to apply once a day and I'm good to go so one bottle might even last more more than 4 months at the rate I'm going! HIGHLY recommend and even though all three scents had the same results, my preferred scent was the Lavender as it just one of my favourite scents overall!
