Lately many people have turned to organic alternatives to household cleaning items and food, but there is more to green living than that. Organic skin care is becoming less of a trend and more of a necessity. Because it is legally allowed to use almost any ingredient (dioxane, alcohol, cyclomethicone, etc.) in the products we are using for our makeup and skin, hair and nails care. There are not nearly enough of regulations for this field, as for food, for instance. So it is up to us to find some healthier alternatives. Many celebrities are contributing to public awareness of this problem, and they are starting the change with themselves. Here are our favorite 5 natural-beauty buffs.
Miranda Kerr is famous for her appetite for healthy life style, so it is no wonder that she prefers using organic ingredients for her culinary endeavors and for her skin care. Miranda does not want an expensive perfume filled with various chemicals.
Instead she chooses to use essential oils as alternatives. Her favorite scents are ylang-ylang, sandalwood and gardenia. The beautiful model swears by dry-brushing as a great way to make the skin smoother and softer and improve circulation. She has her own natural skin care and beauty line, Kora Organics, with noni, lavender, green tea and jojoba as some of the main ingredients.
This Brazilian supermodel is all about natural beauty. She repeatedly said that she does not want to put on her skin anything that contains chemicals. In fact, she even argued about the toxicity of sunscreen, which caused a lot of comments, both positive and negative.
Still, the model referred to synthetic sun-block only, and she advocated the use of sunscreens without SPF. Aware of the problems with the synthetic products, Gisele has even launched her own skin care line, Sejaa Skincare. And for a healthy glow when she is attending gala events, the model uses organic face makeup.
Gwyneth is one of those celebs who constantly promote healthy lifestyle in public and give advice on how to accomplish and maintain it. It does not come as a surprise then, that she is a dedicated natural-beauty buff, and that she has decide to launch her organic beauty line.
The actress/wellness guru decided to take this step because she thinks that there are no products which are both highly effective and natural. Her project consists of two parts: skin care products and makeup collection.
The actress buys organic skin care products and makeup whenever she can. Not only that, she tries to mix her own body oils to avoid any chemicals to “sneak in”.
Still, her most valuable natural-beauty tips are – drinking at least 2 liters of water per day, eliminating highly-processed food from diet and get at least half an hour of daily exercise. She also founded The Honest Company which produces all-natural skin care collections.
We are all nuts about Natalie’s radiant and glowing skin and we are wondering what her secret is? Well, most of all, it is her choosiness when it comes to beauty products. The actress prefers certified organic skin care products and makeup collections.
She also maintains a strict skin care routine which always includes cleansing and moisturizing with products containing no chemicals or allergens. Natalie is also convinced that what she eats reflects on her skin. That is one of the reasons she became vegetarian.
With all of these gorgeous ladies switching to organic skin care products and makeup, can you actually afford yourself not to do the same? No, it is not following the latest trends, it is taking care about your health and avoiding products that can be harmful.
