BARE NATURALLY!


Hi Everyone,

Thanks for checking in! I’m sorry for not having new posts for the past week but I was out with the flu. Who heard of such a thing in the Summer?

I have something great for women especially in the summer, it is completely natural and most likely you have it in your home! If you want your legs, elbows, feet, etc., to be as soft as a bare baby’s bottom… this is the way to do it, naturally.

Ingredients:

SEA SALT, JOJOBA OIL, or Grape Seed, Vitamin E…

READ THE LABEL! Sometimes an Oil will say it is something but the ingredients show other additives. Just make sure it is pure and Paraben free.

Mix 3 part oil to one part Sea Salt and swirl together, then put it on your body as you would a purchased salt or sugar scrub. This feels better,  it is A LOT less money, and so simple, plus the outcome of  bare baby bottom soft skin! Yes, soft elbows.

If you live in Los Angeles, a store in Beverly Hills on South Beverly Drive recently opened called SASSY. The owner is great and she features mostly Paraben free beauty products and skin and hair products  for both men and women.  She has a large variety so make sure and ask for the Paraben free products. She does free Make-up applications.

Please let me know what you think.

Shortly we will be featuring women and men just like you and me for make on’s. A refreshing look at  individuals beauty with Paraben free cosmetics and products. For Men we will be doing skin and hair. There will be  before and after photos. We will NOT be doing the before frown after smile… This blog is real, so the results will be too.

Don’t forget to chime in. Requests regarding product information, questions, comments… I look forward to it.

BEAUTY TO LAST A LIFETIME!

DID YOU KNOW? The underbelly of Parabens…
60% of products such as lotions, shampoos, lipsticks, powders, deodrant, shaving creme… are absorbed into your body and mimic your body’s hormones.

Natural does not always mean naturally good for you! Yesterday I was at the grocery store. I saw what is considered a natural sunscreen. Alba Botancia states that is is a chemical free sunscreen, noting on the front of the bottle, that it contains not harmful chemicals. Although their intentions may be good, their product label is misleading. Alba Botanica sunscreen lotions contain Titanium dioxide.  What is Titanium Dioxide?

Titanium dioxide is a white powder like mineral. Chemically processed, it provides a pure white pigment that is odorless and absorbent.  Additional to sunscreen and deodrant, TD can be found in food, cosmetics, vitamins and paint!

There are mixed views regarding Titanium Dioxide.  The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) recently classified Titanium dioxide as an IARC Group 2B carcinogen ”possibly carcinogen to humans”… This evidence showed that high concentrations of pigment-grade (powdered) and ultrafine titanium dioxide dust caused respiratory tract cancer in rats exposed by inhalation and intratracheal instillation*.  (Naturalnews.com)\

THE FACTS: Natural does not always mean it is good for you. Check your labels and decide for yourself.

As far as sunscreen’s go, The Environmental Working Group has identified the following ingredients are harmful to human health. Octocrylene. PABA, Octyl-methoxycinnamate (OMC), Benzophenone-3, 4-methyl-benzylidene and camphor (4-MBC). Homosalate

Women – Deodrant: I have looked LONG & LONGER to find a deodrant that had a pleasant smelled, WORKED, and was pure of toxins. The deodrant I use is HUGO NATURALS, Dual-action Formula – Sea Fennel & Passionflower. Purchased at Whole Foods.

This blog will be filled with new information about paraben free, natural, organic products, events, beauty, fashion, green style, food, wine, health…  AND YOU!  Stay Tuned & Definitely Chime In!
