The Glamorganic GoddessHi friends! I know we all want to keep it so fresh and so clean clean, but we do not need many of the chemicals our bath products fill our bodies with. After many years of experimentation, I've gotten my beauty routine down and pretty much chemical free. I am still working on finding good, chemical free make up, but I promise, when I do, it will be on this blog immediately. If any readers have some suggestions for me to review and try, I'm so in!!!!
Replace your face and body lotion with Almond or Coconut Oil
Instead of wearing perfume, dab your favorite essential oils behind those pretty little ears of yours or find a natural perfume at your local health food store
Ditch shampoo. Sounds gross, but I don't use shampoo- I use 1 tablespoon of baking soda to 8oz of water, fill up an old shampoo bottle with it and put the rinse on your hair.
Ditch conditioner- 1 tablespoon of apple cider vinegar to 8oz of water- yes, this smells, but it rinses out of your hair without leaving the smell. Coconut water also makes an insanely good conditioner. You can even leave it on overnight for extra luxuriousness.
Hit up the health food store for an organic, natural soap. If you cannot recognize or pronounce the ingredients, don't buy it.
For the seriously brave
Ditch deodorant, use natural, or make your own. I use this recipe from The Raw Divas website:
Hope this helps you guys keep it pretty while ditching the chemicals going into those gorgeous, sexy bodies of yours!!!
