Today I'm chatting about something super important: toothpaste. So much of our "beauty" comes from our smiles and we all know it's SO important to have good dental hygiene. We all want those clean pearly whites and good oral hygiene is a MUST - but as you know, toxins are everywhere, and they don't stop… Continue reading Toxin-free Toothpaste.
Happy, Wednesday everybody! Every morning in the shower, I think to myself "You need to post about your shampoo and conditioner." Well, this post is it guys! I have yet to post about anything hair-related yet! On this "toxin-free" journey, shampoo and conditioner have been hard to switch out because I loved my products before… Continue reading Non-toxic Shampoo + Conditioner
If there are 2 words that scared me the most when starting this journey, it was natural deodorant. I'm a huge deodorant fan (I mean, who isn't?) It's been there for me through thick and thin, through sweaty workouts and stressful meetings. Alright, wait.. I feel like I need to get personal here and tell you a… Continue reading Best Natural Deodorants
My skin has needed a little TLC the past few months. Between the harsh winter, hormonal breakouts, and just aging skin in general (eeek!), I've been looking for something extra to add to my skincare routine at night. That's where this DIY night serum comes in. 👍 I put this on my face before bed… Continue reading DIY Night Serum
Sunscreen is a funny thing. It protects you from skin cancer which is great, but it also has toxic ingredients that can be associated with cancer. Which is not so great. ☀️ Back in high school, I used to slather on some tanning oil, lay on the sand, and bake until I was super tan… Continue reading Toxin-Free Sunscreen
Essential oils were literally the foundation for my transition to toxin-free beauty. They were the first things I bought and it’s how I slowly started ditching products & replacing them with essential oils. I don't know how I survived before without them. Before I started using oils, I assumed they were these weird potions/a form… Continue reading How I Got Started with Essential Oils!
Well hello there! Let's chat about .. MAKEUP! If you know anything about me, you know how obsessed I am with makeup. When I started transitioning to cleaner, toxic free products this year, it was overwhelming. Some things like skincare and haircare I knew would be easy, but makeup?! I loved my makeup. Some [negative]… Continue reading VIDEO: Toxin-free makeup routine!
Skincare. It's probably my favorite thing. I've always tried to take care of my skin but now that I'm nearing 30 (eeeek!), I'm really trying to be proactive and super conservative about my skin. (AKA not baking in the sun for hours like I used to) I've simplified my skincare routine times 10000 over the… Continue reading Natural Morning Skincare Routine
I'm 100% convinced there is no better feeling in the world than taking off your makeup after a long day. I feel more relaxed now just thinking about it. Back in college, I used to fall asleep with my smoky eyeshadow and pounds of foundation on. But now, I can't fall asleep without taking my… Continue reading Natural Makeup Remover
If there's ONE thing you need to start transitioning to a clean beauty and lifestyle, it's the Think Dirty app. You know that feeling you had when restaurants started listing the calories in every meal and suddenly you're switching meals because you're frightened/overwhelmed/shocked by the calorie content in ONE salad?! Guys, that's how it was… Continue reading Think Dirty.
