Do Your Skin a Favor...
Updated: May 20
Did you know that most skincare products on the market are loaded with ingredients that are actually toxic to your skin and body?
It’s true. Artificial ingredients and chemicals are used to have a positive effect on the skin. However those positive effects are often temporary, yet the negative effects last long term because the toxic ingredients are absorbed by the skin and build up within the body.
Thankfully, there are many natural and inexpensive options out there, and most of them can be found in your pantry!
Below, are some skincare alternatives for healthy, beautiful skin. Just pick your skin type, and try adding these natural products to your beauty routine.
