Green Your Beauty Routine
As moms, we are all concerned about the environment, chemicals and food additives to ensure the well-being of our children in the future. So we recycle, use natural cleaning products and buy organic fruits and vegetables. Now we can take our efforts up a notch by using organic and natural beauty products. The latest formulas not only help the planet, but they truly work!
What about pregnancy?
When you are pregnant, it is even more important to use products free of chemicals and additives. Since the hormonal changes of pregnancy can create acne and melasma, it can be even harder to find products without ingredients such as benzoyl peroxide or hydroquinone. Try the skin care regimen from Amalou Skin ($138 for all four products, Amalouskin.com), which uses ingredients like tea tree oil (a natural antiseptic often used for acne) and azelaic acid (to remove toxins from the skin).
What else should I know?
When buying natural and organic beauty products, check to see if the line contains certified organic ingredients and if it's free of parabens, synthetic chemicals, FD&C color dyes and artificial fragrance. Other considerations are whether the company uses recycled materials, green production and hybrid vehicles for transportation.
