My Natural Beauty Routine
My journey to health and wellness has been just that, a journey. Every day I learn something new I can incorporate into my diet or beauty routine. Over the years, I’ve had to find a balance between worrying about every little thing I touch or eat and making educated and informed decisions about my health. Today I want to share my natural beauty routine with you and I hope you learn something new!
The first step to finding a natural beauty routine is reading labels and learning which chemicals to avoid.
I knew about the Environmental Working Group’s Skin Deep Database for a few years, but I have to admit I didn’t always use it. If I found a lotion, hair mousse or tinted moisturizer that said “natural” or “organic” I just trusted it was safe. A few weeks ago I decided to take an inventory of all of my beauty products (you should too!) and I was shocked to find out how many contained known carcinogens! A few of the products even contained USDA certified organic ingredients in addition to the toxic ingredients.

To be honest I am still looking for a natural and safe eye shadow and eye liner. Beautycounter has great options, but I haven’t tried them yet! I have used Tarte makeup products in the past and I enjoyed many of them. However, you have to be careful with the ingredients. I only want to share with you beauty products I’ve tried and enjoyed. So every item in the list above is something I use.
Another tip: Find what works for you and is safe and nourishing to your beauty!
I enjoy learning about the best products to nourish our bodies and in my health journey I recently discovered Beautycounter. One of the things I love most about Beautycounter is the education and transparency of the company. They want women to make informed decisions about their beauty and they aren’t afraid to share the source of all ingredients. I’ve teamed up with my friend Carly to offer Heart of Deborah readers a special Beautycounter experience! If you spend $100 you can get a free lip conditioner (see here, $20 product).

Yes! I keep it in the shower and use it every morning. It’s refreshing and doesn’t leave anything behind on your skin.
Great overview! It’s refreshing that so many ladies are looking to clean up their beauty routine. Thankfully there are great options now and more information is available about the danger in traditional products. Thanks for sharing!
I find that the hardest thing for me is to not only find something that is as safe as it can be, but also that it is completely unscented (even from natural essential oils, many of which I can’t tolerate). I also think that at times its impossible to get something “perfect”. Even a reduction in the things that are problem ingredients is better than nothing when faced with limited options that are unscented.
