Why does winter always make me think of my skin? And personal care. Could it be that winter’s when your body needs the attention the most?
Well, my body was lucky to get to spend a few days in Florida last weekend. It was such a welcome break! It was good for my attitude and – bonus(!) my skin.
Hmm, what can I do to keep this feeling? Perhaps a nice body oil or natural lip balm?
Of course, I am major picky about using good natural products. I remember when I first discovered the Environmental Working Group’s Skin Deep database and rating system. My lip balm came out so high I almost fainted! And then I learned some lipsticks even contain lead (per the FDA)!
Products were flying into garbage cans right and left.
Since then I use a lot of products made by small companies. I love the natural goodness, the variety and supporting small businesses! A favorite is Beessential which I reviewed a couple years ago. I drop their lip balms into my kids’ Christmas stockings every year. This year I picked up an extra 5-pack for one lucky reader. ‘Cause who wouldn’t want soft lips for Valentine’s day 🙂.
