March 2018 Favourites

Saturday, 7 April 2018

I haven't done a Favourites in such a long time and if I remember correctly, I have never done an all green beauty favourites so today we will talk about my current toxin-free newbies and go-to products together. 

Beauty begins with diet as we all know it by now, what we eat on a daily basis reflects on our health and our skin so getting the necessary supplements or superfoods are crucial in our beauty routines. There's a trend in health/beauty world lately of taking probiotics daily and I've jumped on this bandwagon as well and let me tell ya, I get it now why probiotics are so important. 

TerraNova Probiotic Complex with Prebiotics Capsules. This little bottle does wonders for gut health. These capsules are not only good for detoxifying the gut, reducing acidity and improving mobility but also excellent for breaking down foods more efficiently, helping in the manufacture of certain vitamins. These are vegan-friendly and formulated without fillers, binders, anti-caking agents, lubricants, disintegrants, coating agents, wheat, gluten, yeast, dairy, gelatine, animal ingredients, sugar, colours, flavours or preservatives. You couldn't get any probiotics cleaner than these. I highly recommend trying them if you want your gut health to be back on track. I have been taking them for the past few weeks and I can already see the difference. I am less bloated and bowel movement is healthier than ever. 

Another supplement, well superfood really, is the KIKI Health Organic MACA Powder. This stuff is amazing. I'm almost out of it. I take one teaspoon every morning with my yoghurt. It can be quite "earthy" but also has a rather pleasant caramel taste to it which I quite enjoy. MACA root is a type of vegetable root that is high in Vitamin C, B6, Iron, Calcium, Riboflavin and potassium, and by taking it regularly, it'd help in reducing fatigue, boosting our immune system, regulating hormone activity and helping to maintain healthy teeth and bones etc. It is free from all the nasties as all KIKI products are, and it is 100% raw and organic. 

If you have never tried berry powders before, you are missing out because all wild berries are rich in vitamins, minerals, fibres, antioxidants, fatty acids etc. so by taking them daily would really help in maintaining our general health and also good for the skin. I have been enjoying Arctic Power Berries since last summer and these Cranberry and Blackcurrant ones are my favourite. They are not only delicious with any smoothies or yoghurts but I also love that all the berries are handpicked and pressed without the unnecessaries. 

Since beauty is inside + out, it's only fair for me to share with you some of my favourite skincare products. I have been testing a couple of products from Virginutty lately and they are both lovely. Virginutty is a coconut oil based skincare company that brings the best coconut oil from the Philippines and may I just say the *Makeup Melt that I have is amazing. All her products are coconut oil based and this makeup remover is made with 100% raw organic coconut oil which not only smells amazing but also very effective when it comes to taking off makeup and daily grime. Coconut oil is one of those oils that is multi-functional which I really like so if you have dry hair, dry skin, dry cuticles or even want to cook with it, feel free to knock yourselves out. 

The *Coffee Glow is a coconut oil infused body scrub but what is so different from other coffee scrubs I've tried in the past is that it has a "drier" formula (very effective) with only 3 ingredients: organic coconut oil, roasted Barako coffee and organic sugar. This is, without a doubt, one of the best scrubs I've tried for eliminating dead skin cells plus it smells heavenly. I love that it's "rough" but that being said, I wouldn't use it on my face though, and because of the drier formula, I suggest using a body oil or cream afterwards. 

Another cleansing balm I have been enjoying is the *Lavender & Lemon Cleansing Beauty Balm by VeeBeauty LDN. I have never tried any cleansing balm that has a cooling sensation when contacting the skin. This will be fantastic for the summer. It has a smooth texture just melts into the skin and it does remove makeup effortlessly. This is one of those balms that is great for a pamper night as it smells really nice so you could inhale with it then smooth it across the face just enjoy the ritual. It has a rather "strong" eucalyptus scent so if you are sensitive, it might not be for you but again, this would be great for the summer and if you have a cold, just smear some around your nose and you will feel much better after. 

If you suffer from thinning hair, breakage or irritated scalp, you should try *VeeBeautyLDN's Hair & Scalp Nourishing Treatment. It has olive oil, castor oil, rosemary oil etc. to nourish the roots and ends as well as promoting healthy hair growth. I really like the rosemary and peppermint scent, very refreshing. I use it twice a week because I'm trying not to wash my hair too frequently but feel free to use it as often as needed because all VeeBeautyLDN products are 100% natural with zero nasties. It comes with a dropper so you can drop the oil directly on your roots, massage it in and work your way down to the ends. 

There you have it, my March faves. All these products are 100% natural and green so feel free to indulge with them. I hope you have a wonderful week and remember to use green beauty products for better health.
