“Being an authentic organic beauty brand comes with conviction that runs far deeper than profit margins.”Heather Hamilton
What really goes into the skincare products you use on a daily basis? “Natural”…..”Organic”…what used to be buzz words signifying a “products” wholesome composition are now known mostly as a marketing claims: Overused and Inflated.
To be beautiful naturally and sustainably means to be well and happy as whole person. Our physical well-being is clearly reflected in our glowing skin and complexion, and our emotional health affects our bodies. But is well-being something that takes a lot of effort or money? Wellness is bog business today, and spa, and retreats, fitness club and grooming services can give you the wrong idea-that you are either in or out because of your external appearance. I believe that being well and beautiful is for everyone, not only for the rich or privileged, and that is for everyday not just for special occasions. That is the reason why I write about this post to made your own beauty products at home by using “super ingredients” that you already have at home.
Here are my 7 super ingredients list to made your own beauty products. So, get ready for super blending moods :).
