Natural beauty and well-being

Organic beauty on a budget

I wanted to write this little post a while ago, but I thought November would be a better time. Why? Because Christmas is coming so we may all be tempted to buy and splurge more than usual.
But let's face it: although we want to enjoy the great benefits of green beauty, we often encounter the challenge that it comes at a premium price. We all want to feel beautiful and healthy, but budgets do not always allow to step into decadent and sometimes overpriced eco-luxury.

So here are some tips if you do not want to compromise on your beauty and health principles, but at the same time don't want to splash too much:

  • Check your beauty cabinet before "buying" and really assess what you need, not what you want.
  • Target established affordable green brands such as Weleda, Benecos, Lavera, So' Bio Etic, Avril beaute, Andalou Naturals, Organic Surge, Dr Bronner's.
  • Take advantage of online sales/offers (occuring generally after/before any other special occasions).
  • Buy raw ingredients online at a very good price (Aromazone, Aromantic, Mountain Rose Herbs).
  • Establish a regular spending ban throughout the year if you see your spend too much on unecessary products.
  • Adopt a minimalistic approach- your skin will even thank you more.
  • Cleanser and serum are the top 2 products you really have to spend on.
  • Do some DIY recipes (such as yogurt + honey weekly mask) can be very rewarding result-wise.
  • Remember, a glowing skin comes first by eating a healthy diet.

What do you think? do you have any other tips to add?
