Natural Skincare Alternatives

One of my favorite magazines is New Beauty Magazine. They are actually the reason I got into beauty blogging in the first place. Sometimes they have such interesting articles that I feel compelled to share some of their suggestions and guidelines with you.

Rosehip Skin Serum

I needed a new hydrating lotion or oil to put on my face for the night and day. I wanted one that could also go everywhere (on my face, eyes, lips and neck). That way I could take a break from eye creams for a while.

Pai-Shau Cleanser & Conditioner

My cousin was about to get married and my hair needed a trim and a style for me to show my face to the wedding. But jokes aside, my hairdresser and I had been talking about what she would like to wash my hair with since they no longer carried label.m (my favorite brand thus far). She washed my hair with this Pai-Shau Replenishing Cleanser & Conditioner, and I fell in love with the results: soft, luxurious hair.

Calendula Salve – Kimberly’s Kupboard

Originally bought for my grandfather, who has chronic dry skin, this product’s purpose was intended as a lotion for hands. This salve can also be used for skin, hair, and nails as Calendula is a very powerful moisturizer and healer.

Pureology Shampoo & Conditioner

I needed new hair products that would voluminize my hair and also keep it hydrated. I loved my Kevin Murphy, but I also noticed my hair was getting so long that it is too heavy to look voluminized. So to get both, I bought one for volume and one for hydration. I was also attracted to the “Nano-Technology” and I hoped that it would spread through my thick hair more easily than the other shampoos and conditioners.
