6 Tips to keep you looking fabulous:
Here are six tips to keep you looking fabulous:
#1 Less is more
Using too many products and layering them on your skin all at once can have adverse effects on the skin, leading to breakouts, rashes, and clogged pores.
#2 Drink lots of water
One of the most natural ways to rid your body of the toxins absorbed in the food we eat, and the products we use, is to drink water. Lots and lots of it. Recommendations of how much vary between 8-12 glasses per day, as a measure.
#3 Eat well
Maintaining a healthy diet is another crucial element that will aid your natural skin and hair care journey. What we see on the outside can often be a result of what we are putting into our bodies. Focus on a diet rich in vitamins and antioxidants that promote natural and organic skin care.
#4 Sleep well
Aside from the recommended number of hours of sleep that you adhere to, always, always, always remove your make up before putting your head to the pillow. Talking of pillows, use a silk pillowcase. It causes less friction for your skin and hair.
#5 Stay away from parabens and other chemicals
Used as preservatives in most traditional beauty and personal care products since the early 20th century, concerns over the use of parabens have been raised by health advocates.
Shanna Swan, the world’s top epidemiologist and author of “Count Down: How Our Modern World Is Threatening Sperm Counts, Altering Male and Female Reproductive Development, and Imperilling the Future of the Human Race”, also warns that common toxins in less natural and organic skin care products wreak havoc on fertility rates.
“Chemicals in our environment and unhealthy lifestyle practices in our modern world are disrupting our hormonal balance, causing various degrees of reproductive havoc,” she said.
#6 Use sulphate-free shampoo
VATÉA’s Kind Shampoo is a gentle, soothing natural shampoo suitable for all hair types. It is a sulphate and paraben-free shampoo infused with plant extracts of virgin coconut oil and quinoa to soften and brighten your hair. Plus, it also includes tea tree oil to support dry, flaky and sensitive scalps.
Winner of the Organic Beauty Brands Australia, 2020. VATÉA blends natural ingredients and remedies with scientific formulations to create toxic-free, certified natural and organic skin care products.
Founded in Australia in 2016, the eco-luxe natural skin and hair care brand is the brainchild of entrepreneur Liz Johnston, whose father co-founded Dermaveen, one of Australia’s most recognisable sensitive skincare brands.
