Did you know its cleaner beauty month?
The beauty industry is a fast paced industry with trends that change like the current British weather. One thing that has been growing in popularity is cleaner beauty and natural products.
This is where my favorite brand come in to the mix, anyone that knows me knows that I love Weleda products as I use them in abundance which is why I became a wellbeing ambassador with Weleda about 4 years ago. Some of my favorite products are skin food which I have in my hand bag, my make up kit and my gym bag. Its a great all purpose dry skin cream that gives your skin that much needed boost of hydration and nourishment. In my make up artist kit is also the Iris facial lotion which is an amazing mattifying moisturizer so perfect for oily skin. Almond oil I use in the bucket load for removing make up and when my skin is parched as a boost of hydration and the arnica bath soak and massage oil has been particularly helpful for the 45 min spin classes that I seem to think are a good idea.
Weleda is a brand which has been around since 1921 but since then has remained true to their natural roots and only ever use natrue certified ingredients and each range has different lead plants depending on what you wish to achieve. My personal Favorite is the rose skin care line, I have always loved the smell of roses in the garden but sometimes rose scented products can just be….not very nice! Luckily Weleda use wile roses in the skin care so the smell is not sickly sweet but a beautiful natural rose smell, its super hydrating and my skin is loving it, its also great for helping those fine lines that seem to be collecting around my eyes I have to say my skin has never looked as good as it does at the moment.
Back to clean beauty I do feel we do not pay enough attention to what we are putting on our skin but also to what we are washing in to our oceans which is why now we only have Weleda shower creams in our house, I will admit it took some time for hubby to get use to his shower cream not foaming up like father Christmas’s beard (as there is no sulfates to foam), he has very sensitive skin but there was no reaction from these lovely shower creams. I think we both love the sea buckthorn range the most which has an amazing refreshing smell which really perks you up in the morning, teamed up with the body oil the smell is going to last the day but don’t panic its not over powering.
So do you pay attention to the ingredients that are in your lotions and potions?
Do you care about what your putting on your skin and in to the environment or is it something you just have not thought about yet?
Its defiantly something I am interested in and promoting as I want to make the world a cleaner place for the future generations.
Sorry for the lack of pictures on the post, I am still having camera issues which I hope to rectify this weekend.
