My Top 7 Fave Edible Beauty Products

 

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.

    Hi I have just recently tried the all edible body butter. It is amazing. My hands were so dry the skin was starting to peel. After just a couple of days using the body butter they are soft and smooth. Really like it on my face too. And you just use such a small amount. It is great. I will definitely use the other ingredients you have talked about. Awesome Thanks so much Deb

    I love my raw shea butter on really dry skin (heels in particular, but all over in the winter). The smell is not great, but a few drops of lavender or geranium oil takes care of that. I use geramium oil to moisturize my face. My skin glows and it smells lovely. I made strong green tea, then used it cooled as a toner. The problem is you need to keep it in the fridge or it will start growing stuff! It's very refreshing to use when I get home from work and want a quick freshen up, but not so convenient when I am getting ready in the morning it the bathroom upstairs. I need to try using diluted cider vinegar. Thanks for the great tips!

    Hi Meghan, I picked up some Artisana coconut oil, but it’s rough and gritty, even when warmed up in the palm of your hand, any tricks for using coconut oil as a moisturizer? I'm wondering if maybe I got a defective jar, as a neighbour has the Nutiva brand, and it completely turns to oil within moments of being in the palm of her hand. Tried warming it up in the microwave, and it did liquify, but when rubbing it onto skin quickly dries and turns flakey. What do you think? Thanks!!

    Hi Meghan, Never mind my earlier question, turns out my sister purchased Coconut Butter, not oil! So that's why it was so weird. :-) Holly

    Thanks for the ideas! I love coconut oil so much. Today I put some in my smoothie, rubbed it on my dry hands and used it to clean crayon of my sons crib. I love how multipurpose it is!
