Green Your Summer Routine: Go Nontoxic

Feelgood Quickie

One way to green your beauty routine is to use skin care and cosmetics free from harmful ingredients.  Better for you and the environment.  Let’s talk nontoxic cosmetics as we continue our Green Your Summer Routine Series

Don’t know where to start?  Following are my favorite online destinations for good-for-you beauty products.

Spirit Beauty Lounge – A ton of luxury natural beauty items and lovely makeup products.  Love their sample system!

Nature of Beauty – Everything you need to outfit your beauty kit, naturally.  NOB’s unique Leaf Rating System let’s you know exactly how “green” your purchases are.

Caren Online – This true green beauty stocks the purest of pure products.  Stock up on Try Me sizes to test before purchasing the full size.

Love True Natural –  So many terrific products to choose from, but my top picks:  Lavera Sunless Tanner and FACES Summer Glow.

Remember:  If you are new to natural beauty products, you don’t have to switch out all at once.  Start with the easier items to replace — like makeup, facial cleanser and body products.  Then work your way up to foundation, moisturizer or hair care.
