Dear ladies, to look gorgeous in every moment you don’t need “a full arsenal” of products, but just the right ones. The best is to find and invest in a few essential high quality pieces (like when you are building a new wardrobe) that make you feel and look great in every moment. More than that, they also have to treat your skin with beneficial ingredients. That doesn’t mean that other beauty products are not worth of your attention or your money. They are. But the big deal is to recognize first which are the essential products that makes you stand out instantly (especially in situations where you don’t have time) and help you create your personal style, gain confidence and feel comfortable. However, for many of you this is not as easy as it sounds 🙂 But I am here to help you and to make you reflect about some beauty products that can quickly improve your look. Of course, they should be gentle to your skin and thus organic. Let’s start with the list!
Organic virgin coconut oil
Before listing any other typical cosmetic product, here is my n.1 beauty suggestion. I have convinced women to start using it after I’ve removed their makeup with it and continued with a nice face massage. Yes, with one simple product: the fabulous coconut oil that has a plethora of benefits and that makes your skin look great. The best organic coconut oil I have ever tried and which also smell heavenly (a mix of vanilla and coconut) is the one that a dear friend of mine brought me from Philippines (Thank you again!). That oil wasn’t of any brand but a hand-made product by philippines women. To continue, you can use this miraculous product also as a lip balm, make-up remover, face and body massage oil, mixed with organic brown sugar it becomes a fantastic body scrub, you can use it as a highlighter and much more. Try it and you won’t look back.
Even when I haven’t used organic products yet, my philosophy was to invest in a good quality face cream. Our face is what we show to the world. Your skin deserves the best. Moreover, the face skin is even more delicate than skin on other parts of the body. It is exposed to weather all the time and we also wear make-up on. These are some of the main reasons why you should take special care and choose the best cream. Nowadays, creams aren’t greasy and thick anymore, but lighter in texture. Look for those with many beneficial ingredients that will keep your skin moisturized, which is essential. I suggest you to first discover your skin condition (if you haven’t done it yet) and then choose a very good organic moisturizer. You don’t need night and day creams, if you go organic. You just need a formulation with high quality beneficial organic ingredients. I like to compare this with what you eat. There is a huge difference, if you eat a few but organic, healthy and tasteful superfoods that gives you energy, or if you eat many different processed synthetic and junk food with artificial tastes and additives. What goes in, goes out! Your skin wants natural oils and herbal extracts that will provide you nourishment, purify and detox your skin, help to heal, soothe and promote elasticity and stimulate the skin to regenerate in a natural way. After, the make-up will be just a cherry on top of the cake.
Liquid or mineral powder foundation
I leave to you the decision for your formula of foundation – in powder or a liquid/creamy one. I suggest to each one which formula and why works better for her skin, but sometimes some women think that some foundations are hard to apply and so they don’t want to give themselves another, even better chance. The foundation is an essential piece in every women “make-up wardrobe” and it’s worth to spend money for it. It is almost your second skin. A good chosen foundation should look like your skin and not like a mask. It should hide imperfections in a natural way and it should match your skin tone exactly. So, check through my older posts to find your best organic “second skin”. And don’t hurry when you will go on a hunt for the right one. Don’t buy just whatever comes around. Instead, take your time to test different formulas, try and check the colors and textures how works all together on your skin and have fun. Ask for samples and be gentle with yourself on this mission:)
A touch of just one color can transform your face and erase signs of time, fatigue and stress. If I was asked to choose just one product for the entire make-up that would be the lipstick for sure. Being of a light, medium or deep color, matte or shiny, if choosing the right color, it always bring youth and color to your face. If you are wearing just an express day make-up, put a small amount of lipstick with your fingers even on cheekbones and blend it well. This will give you an instant wake-up look. Do this with shades of pink, rosy, peach and strawberry tones. But do it really with a light hand. This way you can sometimes use one product in two ways. On the market you find now products in stick that are designed both for lips and cheeks. They are creamy and thus highly moisturizing. That is the reason why they help you achieve a healthy look and enhance with color your face.
When choosing essential products that are really worth of our money, the mascara is certainly on the top of the list. The right and good quality mascara gives definition to your eyes and also opens them. Another important thing are its ingredients. The mascara is a product that you wear the closest to your eyes and to your mucous membrane, which is a very sensitive area. When using a mascara it’s very important to change it every 6 months, not only because it dries, but also because of the risk to infect your eyes. If your mascara gives you red eyes when applied, is the sign that it doesn’t work for you or that is too old.
Please be careful with all the old products that you put on yourself. Make a decision and invest rather in a few good pieces and throw away all your old stuff. Now is the right time to get rid of what is not serving you!
