Green Your Beauty Routine on Organic Spa

I'm so thrilled to announce, I am now a contributor to Organic Spa magazine! One of the only magazines to focus on eco beauty, style, travel and wellness, Organic Spa and it's editor Rona Berg are true visionaries. It's such an honor to be a part of this team. My column, Green Your Beauty Routine, will walk you through the process of finding the best in safe, sustainable cosmetics, one area at a time. Read on to learn about the first place to start...

Finding the right products for our unique beauty needs can be hard, so when we find ones that work for us, we stay loyal to them for years. Yet, if you are reading this, you are probably interested in choosing the healthiest cosmetics. But where should you start? Should you change all of your products at once? This may seem like a daunting task, but I am here to tell you, you can take it slow! Start with one product at a time, or wait until you’re finished with what you’re currently using to try something new. I also tell my clients that the best place to begin is with the products you use daily, or most frequently, and over the largest areas of your body. For many of us, this is our skincare.
Blissoma Skincare
We often apply skincare 1 to 2 times daily, morning and night, with the purpose of it healing and restoring our skin over several hours. Our skincare regimen may include several different products, such as cleansers, moisturizers, toners and exfoliators. Each of these products contains multiple ingredients, so when you add it all up, we may be applying dozens of chemicals to our bodies through our skincare alone. Commercial products tout benefits such as hydrating, plumping and anti-aging, and yet often use a cocktail of synthetic chemicals that may be harmful to our health and environment.
