Claudette Colbert once said, “It matters more what’s in a woman’s face than what’s on it.”
It’s the ugly truth. Toxic chemicals and contaminants found in everyday cosmetics are being absorbed into our skin on a daily basis. If our bodies were pristine rivers when we are born, they are gradually becoming contaminated with industrial-grade toxins by virtue of our constant negligence to put nothing but the finest ingredients on our skin.
However, as your organic beauty voice of reason, I do my best to scope the market in order to bring you the healthiest, safest and most effective organic beauty products that have one goal: to continue to enhance your beauty, naturally.
Today’s focus is facial care. I love to have a clean, fresh complexion every morning (and evening) without breaking the bank. Cue Avalon Organics.
I swear by the Facial Cleansing Gel in Lavender (7 fl oz, $11.95). The soft hints of organic lavender, licorice root, white tea and arnica are the perfect solution to my sensitive skin. Just work a few pumps of this gel in to a soapy lather and rinse away impurities without the usage of harsh chemicals. The end result also leaves you with just enough moisture, thanks to the organic flax and borage oils (flax seed has been heralded as a champion ingredient as early as the Babylonian days –it is chock full of the good Omega 3 fatty acids).
My second favorite item is the Essential Lift Contouring Eye Cream (0.5 fl oz, $25.95) Since I am a gal who talks a lot about beauty sleep, but rarely experiences it for herself, I rely on this eye cream to get me through the day with the bags left at the door. This eye cream has over 70 ocean-derived micro-minerals to enhance moisturized skin so that skin cells radiate…70! How many products in your shelf can you claim has over 3-4 essential ingredients? I can fake the look of a full night’s sleep with this natural potion! Believe me; the results will make you look twice!
To experience this organic facial routine for yourself, visit your local Whole Foods or click on avalonorganics.com. Remember, what we put on our bodies is just as important as what we put into it. With a luxurious brand and an economically friendly price tag like Avalon Organics, you know it’s worth your beautiful skin.
