How do you get your curly hair so smooth without using toxic ingredients?
How do you take your make-up off without conventional eye makeup remover?
And the questions go on and on and on.
Who knew looking out best could get so complicated? The thing is, it's not. The cosmetic products industry, however, has just driven us to think so- constantly reminding us about the pending fall out of our looks with threats of under eye circles, grey hair, wrinkles and other supposedly tragedies of life.
The first step to sweet natural beauty is of course to start with the inside and work our way out. With that being said, there are a few key edible beauty ingredients that I always have two of- one in my kitchen for cooking and one in my bathroom for my beauty needs.
In my forthcoming book, UnDiet, I actually have a whole chapter devoted to natural beauty where I quote Dr. Epstein who explains that our exposure to toxins in our cosmetics is likely a greater carcinogenic risk than the toxins in our food!
There are of course loads more to choose from but these top 7 are my fave go-to's, they're remarkable cheap to buy, very accessible and have loads and loads of amazing uses. In the video below, I share my fave products, different ways to use them on our body- as well as in our body.
If you like this video and think others would benefit- please share it! And in the comments below, share what your top edible beauty care product is, or perhaps what not so edible product you're having a hard time parting ways with.
Keep in mind this little scary statistic: We are exposed to over 100 toxic ingredients in our beauty care products- before we even have breakfast! That is not okay and more so, incredibly easy to change.
