Updated on January 03, 2011

There are so many beauty products available for our faces and hair and I have a few that I am biased towards. What I am looking for is if you have natural items you use for your face and hair and what kind of a difference it makes/made. Also, do you have the recipes and dos/dont's that come along with it that you can share.

What can I do next?

I shop with Melaleuca whose entire line is chemical- and toxin-free. They have everything from beauty products, cleaning products, supplements and vitamins, bath products and a pharmaceutical line. I especially love their beauty line because I know that everything I am putting on my face and or skin is healthy for me. I tend to break out easily when I use just regular products bought from the general stores so I definitely appreciate their line of healthier products. If you ever want some information on Melaleuca so that you can judge for yourself if it's right for you, email me and I can pass on the info to you.

I love Melaleuca for everything from skin care, cosmetics, hair care, body wash and every thing else for our home. They don't use the harmful chemicals and toxins that are found in so many store products. They work better than what I used to buy and I feel good knowing I am making a difference for my long term health and looks. The hair care is salon quality without the high price.

I use Enfuselle and Prosante from Shaklee. As I mentioned in an earlier post, everyone thinks I look much younger than I am.

I use olive oil to remove makeup every night. I gently rub the olive oil over my whole face, apply a warm washcloth for about 30 seconds, and then gently wash off the makeup. No chemicals!!! I was noticing I was becoming sensitive to all the creams I was using and read in a health magazine about olive oil. Since switching I am breaking out less and my face is so much smoother. You can also use grapeseed oil but it is pricey. Use a little salt and olive oil or honey with brown sugar to make a body scrub. If you don't like the smell of the body oil add a little essential oil. Just be careful it will make the bath tub slippery!!!

I use Dr. Bronners All Natural baby soap for my face. I use food-grade Now brand almond oil as a moisturizer (purchased at a health food store). I always get compliments on how my skin glows! Almond oil can be a little bit greasy, I usually apply and then dab off the excess. I have very dry skin, so it works well--especially in the winter! You can also use jojoba oil, I don't because I have an allergy to it (strange but true!)

The best part is it's only $4.99 for a bottle! My mom spends over $25 on her moisturizer! Something that's all-natural AND doesn't cost much? It doesn't get much better than that!



answers from Boise on

I use natural lotions for my face every day. I looked at my local Walgreens, Walmart, etc and couldn't find anything that I liked. So I checked at my local health food store and they had some great options! I really like the way the natural lotions make my skin feel. The best part is that the lotions at the health food store were not any more expensive than the beauty products that the other stores were selling!

a friend started her own company b/c she was appalled with all the toxins used in conventional products. (this video tells a lot about the junk in the stuff we put on our faces:
