It’s Monday! And that means it’s time for my Eco Beauty Booty! These are the skin care products that I use to keep my skin soft and protect it from harmful chemicals at the same time. I started looking for all natural products to tame my battle with excema; I’ve had this skin condition since I was a child. Excema, for those of you that are not familiar with it, is extremely dry skin. It’s commonly called the “itch that rashes” instead of the rash that itches. It’s important for me to keep my skin moisturized and healthy so it doesn’t dry up and start itching. When I found out that many of the products I was already using had harmful ingredients, I started looking for more all natural products. I’m partial to Burt’s Bees but occasionally I use other skin care products. If you have a recommendation feel free to Tweet me @AlanaEcoFashion or email me using the contact page.
For this first edition, I’ll start off with the largest organ on our body, the skin. Most people forget that your skin is an organ and breathes in and pushes out. Your skin is a filter and taking good care of it can prevent harmful sicknesses that attack via the skin.
I use Burt’s Bees richly REPLENISHING Body Lotion with Cocoa and Cupuacu Butters. I absolutely LOVE this lotion. It’s 99.0% natural as are most Burt’s Bees products and it is certified by the Natural Product Association. Here is what Burt’s Bees has to say about the lotion.
Enriched with skin softening Cocoa and Cupuaçu Butters, this body lotion is also formulated with botanical moisturizers Sunflower and Olive Oils, and just a hint of Vanilla. Richly Replenishing Body Lotion leaves skin feeling soft, smooth and healthy, naturally.
The butter of cupuaçu is rich and creamy, making it an excellent moisturizer. It helps the skin feel smooth and soft while helping it retain its natural elasticity.
And I can definitely testify to that. I’ve used other lotions that leave your skin dry after a few hours but this one is clinically proven to moisturize up to 24 hours. I’ve used this lotion for about 4 months now and I will never go back to regular lotions. It is not greasy at all and absorbs quickly so you can get dressed fast in the morning. I also use it after a bath to really keep my skin smooth.
