Michael Pollan Quote - Eat Food

Wouldn’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.”

What do you think of these natural beauty tips? Do you have any to share?

Love, love, love!

I've only been using this serum for a couple of weeks and the difference in my skin is already noticeable. I have very sensitive skin and didn't have any irritation. I was able to use it daily from day 1. Love this product! It's going to be a staple in my arsenal from now on.

Works good but..

I have been using this deodorant for a couple weeks now and it works very well to keep door at bay. However it dries sticky and when I sweat it gets even more sticky. I will keep using fur a while to see if I can get past the sticky feeling, but not sure if I can. It’s too bad because it really does work.

Dear Sandy,

Thank you for your review. We're so pleased to hear that our deodorant is working very well for you! We're always happy to receive feedback from our customers as we try to improve our products. We will take your comment into consideration to improve the formulation. Thank you!

Terrible Rash

This worked for a few weeks and I started getting a painful red rash under my arms. I was about to purchase a set of 4 and I’m glad that I didn’t. I reached out to the company to inquire about what could have caused this as they claim to have products that don’t cause rashes. Of course no one ever replied. Will not purchase again

Happy to finally found a natural deodorant that actually works- worth every penny. Excited to try more scents, especially the lavender when it is back in stock.

My new fave

This cream is my new fave. It's moisturizing without being greasy and absorbs well. The scent is crisp and clean without being overpowering. My husband and son have started using it and love it too! Might need another one to keep by the kitchen sink.
