When it comes to beauty regiments, all women have their fair share of preferred products, unusual routines and necessary traditions. Sensitive skin or finicky hair can play a big role in which products are used and it can be generally agreed upon that some of the more natural products promote youth through their lack of chemicals and help us all to feel good about what we put on our bodies. Searching for effective yet natural products can sometimes be a struggle, but Abe’s Market has a huge variety of products that will serve you just as well as their chemical-laden counterpart.
- Face- How you choose to care for the skin on your face can vary from a simple wash to a structured line of washes, toners, moisturizers and masks. To care for acne or especially oily skin, consider an acne safe facial bar to clear off bacteria and deep clean pores without drying out your face. For an especially girly facial toner option a rose geranium toner will leave lightly scented skin and can also be used as a make up setter. To refresh and rejuvenate your skin overnight, an organic emollient will do wonders to skin restoration and is high in anti-bacterial and anti-fungal oils.
- Nails- Nail polish remover is potentially the highest chemical containing beauty product you can buy. It is extremely harsh on your nails and the skin on your hands. To circumvent this problem, an organic nail polish remover can really help your nails survive your manicure routine. Another option to consider when painting your nails is to choose a nail polish that is free of acetone. This particular chemical is especially harsh on your nailbeds and when using this particular polish, your nails will remain looking shiny and healthy, instead of stripped when the polish is removed. To help your friends out with this particular dilemma, you can gift them an inexpensive natural nail polish set that they can enjoy and appreciate.
- Hair- Hair varies so strongly between different women that finding a product that works best for YOUR hair can be a bit of a challenge. Hair can over react and become especially dry, frizzy or discolored when the wrong product is used, but a safe bet is to always minimize the amount of chemicals you put in your hair. A three in one (shampoo, conditioner and body wash) option is great for those who are more flexible or looking to save money. The lavender is also soothing and peaceful. To care for especially tangled hair, an instant detangler For your child and their delicate and soft hair, it is important to reduce the amount of artificial products that interact with it. Baby shampoos are always a good choice, but to go a step further and only purchase organic products is even better for them. A combined baby shampoo and wash will keep them clean and chemical free.
- Body- There are few things more frustrating than constantly dry or consistently oily skin. The soap and/or moisturizes you use on your body can determine this balance. Bath salt from the Dead Sea is less harsh on sensitive skin than normal moisturizers or face masks, and being able to enjoy using these salts in a bath is an added bonus. A spa therapy kit is another treat for your body that you can do at home. It includes soap, massage oil and exfoliates made from plant products to clean and rejuvenate your skin. Natural moisturizers are also very beneficial and are less likely to dry your skin out than chemicals. These could include shea butter and aloe or olive containing lotion to add natural lipids and vitamins to your beauty regiment.
