If you’re like me, you’ve learned the hard way that makeup can be pretty harmful to your skin and overall health. I used to think that all cosmetics were created equally, but after some research and personal experience, I’ve realized that this is not the case at all. There are many natural makeup products out there that help keep your skin looking fresh and healthy while also being gentle on our bodies as well as the environment.
Protect Your Skin
- Natural makeup is less likely to cause irritation or allergic reactions. Many natural products are free of harsh chemicals and preservatives, which can irritate sensitive skin.
- Natural makeup is better for dry skin. The ingredients in many natural products are moisturizing, so they’re ideal for those with dry or dehydrated complexions who want their foundation formulas to be hydrating as well as protective against the sun’s damaging rays.*
- Natural makeup is also better for oily skin because it doesn’t contain oils that would make the face look too shiny during the day (or night).
Reduce the Risk of Allergies
Natural makeup is less likely to cause allergies and irritations. Natural ingredients are often gentler on your skin, so you’ll be able to use it more often without worrying about an allergic reaction or irritation.
A lot of people experience skin problems when they use conventional makeup products, but natural makeup doesn’t have the same side effects as conventional cosmetics do. You can reduce the risk of developing rashes or infections if you switch from synthetic products to natural ones.
Contain Your Cosmetics
- Use airtight containers.
- Label your cosmetics, and keep them in a cool, dry place.
Stay Away from Harsh Chemicals
- Stay away from harsh chemicals.
- Harsh chemicals can cause skin irritation, allergic reactions and health risks for pregnant women

While the word “wellness” has become synonymous with health, it’s much more than that. Wellness is about keeping yourself healthy, but also about looking at your life holistically. When you’re living a balanced and happy life, it can have a positive impact on your physical health as well as your mental and emotional well-being! Here are some tips to help you get the most out of wellness:
Eat a balanced diet.
Eating a balanced diet is essential to your overall health. A well-balanced diet should consist of a variety of foods from all the food groups, including fruits and vegetables, grains (breads, rice), dairy products (milk), protein sources (meat or beans) and fats/oils.
It’s important that you eat regularly throughout the day so that your body has time to digest each meal before moving on to the next one. Try not to skip meals as this can cause blood sugar levels in between meals which can lead to increased hunger later on in the day or evening when it’s time for dinner again! If you do find yourself feeling hungry earlier than usual then try having a small snack such as fruit or yogurt instead of reaching straight for those cookies in your pantry because those will only make matters worse!
The best way I’ve found so far when trying out different recipes is by using Pinterest 🙂 It has hundreds upon hundreds of ideas regarding healthy living tips including recipes for everything from smoothies/juices etc., breakfast ideas such as pancakes etc., lunch/dinner ideas such as sandwiches/burgers etc., snacks like popcorn balls made using coconut oil instead of butter 🙂 You name it – there’s something there for everyone regardless if they’re vegan/vegetarian diets too!

As a woman, you understand the importance of taking care of your skin. After all, it’s the largest organ in the body and can show its age before any other part of your body. It’s important to have a good skincare routine that takes care of your skin from head to toe!
Makeup remover is a must. It’s not the same as cleanser, and it shouldn’t be harsh or irritating. Makeup removers are gentle enough to dissolve even waterproof mascara without leaving behind an oily residue that can block pores and cause irritation.
Remember: Never use any kind of wipe on your eyes!
- A cleanser removes dirt, oil and makeup. Make sure your cleanser is gentle.
- You can use a foaming cleanser, liquid cleanser or gel cleanser to remove dirt and makeup from your face. An oil-based remover will also work well on the skin’s surface but may not be as effective at removing deep-down impurities like excess sebum or dead skin cells that clog pores.
Exfoliation is the process of removing dead skin cells, dirt and oil from your face. It helps your skin to look and feel healthier by clearing out pores, improving circulation and allowing products to penetrate more deeply into the skin.
Exfoliation also helps you achieve a brighter complexion by removing dullness caused by built-up dead cells.
Toner is a great way to clean your skin and remove any excess dirt and oil that may have built up over the course of the day. Toners also help make your face feel fresh and ready for the next step in your skincare routine, whether it’s moisturizer or another kind of treatment.
Moisturizer is the most important step in your skincare routine. It’s the key to locking in moisture and strengthening … READ MORE ...
Menstrual cups are the first thing I reach for when it’s that time of month. They’re easy to insert and remove, they can last for up to 10 years, and they don’t require any extra packaging or waste. Plus, you can use them at all times during your period—including overnight—which means no more worrying about running out of tampons at the worst possible time. But despite their many benefits, menstrual cups aren’t something you see every woman carrying around in her purse (or backpack). So what should you know about these eco-friendly alternatives that could change how you deal with your monthly cycle? Let me break down some facts about menstrual cups so that you can be prepared for any situation:
Menstrual cups are made of soft, flexible silicone.
Silicone is a chemical compound that’s safe for humans. It’s used in many different products, including menstrual cups, which are made from soft and flexible silicone rubber.
If you’ve ever heard someone say “silicone is bad for you,” it may be because they think that silicone implants cause breast cancer (they don’t), or because they think all plastic products contain silicone (they don’t). The truth is that only certain types of plastic contain the chemical compound–and these days, most plastics don’t have any traceable amounts at all!
They’re easy to insert and remove.
The first time you insert a menstrual cup, it can be a bit daunting. But don’t worry: there are plenty of resources online that will teach you how to get the hang of it.
Menstrual cups come in different sizes and shapes, so it’s important to find one that best fits your body. Once you’ve found the right fit for you, here’s how to use it:
- Place the folded end into your vagina (carefully!) until only about an
