Going green doesn't have to mean washing your face with bar soap and water. Ohnonono. Product junkie here recently made the switch from uber expensive facial cleansers back to my green roots-Alba Botanica. I found that my wrinkles and "freckles" (some may call them age spots, I prefer the term freckles) weren't disappearing, but my hard earned cash certainly was. I was also having a hard time with all the chemicals involved. I use Renova, so I felt like I was turning my face into a chemical waste land. I beleive in moderation. Keep the Renova, and supplement with my Alba Botanica. And aside from this lovely pimple that popped up out of nowhere (even my kids can't hide their horror, it's thatbig), my skin feels and looks exactly the same. Unlike my wallet which is much fuller.
The Hawaiian Collection. I feel like I'm giving my skin a tropical vacation, and not stuck in this tundra.
and for those of you suffering through acne (that'd probably be me) they've released a Natural ACNEdote.
Why add all those harmful chemicals to your teens skin when Lord knows they're a raging bucket of hormones anyhow. Teens are so into the whole saving the earth deal these days, so one up them, and bring home this baby first. Like totally..
And the best part..these products aren't available exclusively at fancy schmancy designer department store. Try the holy grail..Target. Or even your local market (Whole Foods, Shaws, etc..). Your friends will be green with envy when they hear how much you saved.
