REPLENISH – RENEW – RECHARGE THAT BEAUTIFUL SKIN NATURALLY
Your skin deserves a treat. It is your body’s first line of defense when it comes to fighting toxins. Your skin is the first thing people see when they look at you, don’t you want it to be nice and smooth with a natural glow? Yes, of course you do. Let’s give your skin some much needed natural TLC.
Why go natural? Go look under your kitchen sink, or your bathroom. Toxins are everywhere…. In your deodorant, shampoo, cosmetics, body lotion, and personal hygiene products are likely to contain preservatives and petrochemicals . Personal care items, including most body washes, often contain artificial fragrances, chemicals, and dyes that can irritate the skin, and we havent walked outside. Now don’t go and throw out all your stuff. I’m going to share tips that will allow you to baby step your way into a “natural” toxic free stock of your every day supplies.
Scented body wash is a fun way to wake up your senses in the morning or calm them down at night.
