Are You Ready to Switch to Natural Beauty Products

Last month, we discussed why natural cleaning products are important. Now, we’ll take a look at natural skin and beauty products. Why such a big push? Because we are learning more about what some of the chemicals in these products can do. And think about it – we use these products every day. Deodorants, lotions, body washes, shampoos, conditioners, moisturizers, toners, perfumes, eyeliner, mascara, lipstick, eye shadow, powder, foundation, hair styling products, etc. Many of us use these items daily, if not multiple times per day.

Begin by looking at your diet. I mean, take a really good look. How often are you eating out each week? Do you really need to? If so, can you make healthier food choices? Do you eat breakfast? What do your snacks look like? How many of your snacks are pre-packaged and processed? Do you have a game plan each week for dinners?

Are You Ready to Switch to Natural Cleaners?

Have you ever stopped for a minute to consider exactly what you are using when cleaning your house? Unfortunately, some of the ingredients can be down right scary, and yet we breathe them in, touch them with our hands and feet and let our kids stick everything in their mouths!

There are alternatives to consider with household cleaners. I’m going to list a few here, but check out this website and look into it yourself! https://www.ewg.org/guides/cleaners#.Wk01sVWnEdU

At our house, we use quite a few Seventh Generation products. We like their laundry detergent, dish soap and dishwasher detergent. We use Norwex dryer balls in place of our fabric softener and they are great.
