BEAUTY BAR: Au Naturale

In today’s society, people are becoming increasingly conscious when it comes to living a more “natural” lifestyle. Grocery stores are expanding their organic sections, fast food retailers are cutting down on trans fats and you can buy just about anything that is all natural; however, changing your incorporating organic foods into your diet and using eco-friendly products are not the only ways to switch things up.

This Fashionista’s natural beauty radiated in a flowing teal maxi dress and she let her plush, curly hair bounce freely. I loved the simplicity of her look and the easy nature of her makeup; sometimes, less is more. There are some great new (and old) cosmetic and beauty brands that have made it their missions to produce high quality skin and hair care products that are vegan, cruelty-free, paraben/sulfate free, organic and recyclable.

My Fashionista’s look inspired me to explore some all natural and organic options for a new carefree routine. 100% Pure Argan Oil by Josie Maran is great on the hair, skin and nails; using it on your face every morning and night is a great way to battle dry skin and lock in moisture. Everyone deserves to have that natural glow, regardless of your skin type or the makeup you wear. On the lips, try an organic tinted lip balm by Burt’s Bees for the perfect amount of moisture and color.

What’s on the BEAUTY BAR: Beauty brands like Shea Moisture, Dove, Pantene and Honest Beauty have amazing products for all skin tones and hair textures; however, your new venture into organic life doesn’t have to stop at hair and skin. With hundreds of gorgeous shades to choose from, Zoya has a wide variety of nail polishes that lack the harsh and toxic chemicals you’ll find in some other brands.
