Here’s A Tip

the Baiden exfoliation mittenNot everyone knows this so I thought it would be good to share 🙂

This simple tip will make any creams or lotions (cheap or expensive!) much more effective.

The tip is simply to ‘exfoliate’ before you apply.

Now I know you’ve heard of that before, but I also have a secret weapon. It’s my Baiden exfoliating mitten from Skin Product Reviewer. And let me tell you, not every exfoliation mitt or sponge is the same. When you see this working, you’ll start to understand why all your moiturizing lotions and whitening products are better absorbed and will probably become even more effective than they are now.

Get one, they last ages, and I love mine 🙂

p.s. I know they are a little pricey for a mitt, but our creams and lotions are a lot more expensive. And if this makes them all work better, then that makes it a total bargain in my opinion. Give it a try, and let me know what you think of it?

Why Choose Natural Beauty Products?

Natural beauty products
Natural beauty products may be costlier than traditional products you find in a drug store, but they are worth the added expense. These more natural beauty products are kinder to your skin, safer for you to use, and safer for the environment.

More and more cosmetics are getting attention for the harmful ingredients that are contained in them. These items even include those made by top cosmetic lines, which cost a good deal more than drug store cosmetics. Some ingredients like BHA and BHT are thought to cause cancer.

BHA and BHT are found in moisturizers. Avoid this risk. Choose moisturizers and cosmetics that are made from all natural ingredients. Look out the next time you buy nail polish. If your fancy shade has dibutyl phthalate in it, put it back. This is also a carcinogen, and it is proven to be harmful to fish and wildlife.

Another item you want to avoid in your makeup is paraben. This is thought to disrupt the male reproductive system. Leave these items in the store. Start shopping for safe, all –natural beauty products.

For moisturizers, think about using items you have at home. Olive oil, while it may not be scented in a pleasing way, is a superior emollient. Be careful using it on oily skin. For blushes and powders, look for lines such as Physician’s Formula cosmetics. These items do not contain any of the harmful, cancer-causing ingredients mentioned here.

They are safe to use, and you will not be hurting the environment when disposing of any remains once the product has been used up. Additionally, you don’t have to hunt through your pantry to see what ingredients may or may not give your skin a healthy clean look, with color. Bare Naturale Mascara by L’Oreal is one of the safest products in the mascara line to use.

Burt’s Bees is a line found just about anywhere from online stores to drug stores in your neighborhood. Gloss your lips with no worries about harming yourself, your loved ones or the environment. Finding more natural beauty products can take some effort, but in the end, it is better for your health and for the environment. These products also do not have to be very expensive. Some items may cost more than their traditional counterparts cost, but just think of the good you will do when using them.
