If you’ve been thinking about bringing your eco-friendly apartment lifestyle to your daily makeup routine, it may be time to try out some natural beauty brands. Don’t be deterred by tales of natural beauty routines from eras gone by–we’re not talking about coating your face with oatmeal! Thanks to a new trend in eco-friendly care, the best natural beauty products are easy to find. Here are our top picks:
For Your Face
A favorite moisturizer among beauty gurus and celebrities is the Tata Harper Rebuilding Moisturizer. Its weightless formula will hydrate your skin and give it a healthy glow. If it’s makeup you’re looking for, try W3LL PEOPLE’s extensive line of all-natural foundation, mineral eye shadows and all-in one color sticks for easy, eco-friendly makeup application. You’ll keep your skin away from harsh chemicals and look fabulous while doing it!
For Your Lips
For vibrant lip color, add Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics lip tars to your makeup bag ASAP! They’re designed to go on like a gloss and dry into a satin-like finish. Best of all? They’re so packed with pigment that all you’ll need is a drop to cover your lips. For a more versatile natural lip product, try the Josie Maran Magic Marker Lip & Cheek Stain–even the outer packaging is recyclable!
For Your Hair
The dual combination of Rahua’s organic shampoos and conditioners will leave your hair feeling healthy and bouncy. This 100 percent natural beauty brand avoids stripping too much moisture from your hair, which is what leaves it looking so glossy. The product is also created in a sustainable business partnership with women from tribes of the Amazon rainforest. How’s that for being eco-friendly?
For Your Body
As one of the oldest organic beauty lines, Neal’s Yard Remedies is packed with body butters, creams and lotions that use a minimum amount of preservatives and allow for a maximum amount of pampering. Or for a natural beauty fix on-the-go, stop by your local drugstore and pick up güd Natural Hand cream–it smells amazing and costs less than $10!
For Your Nails
Although most nail polishes contain harsh chemicals, Zoya provides you with an all-natural alternative. The company offers more than 300 colors of the toxin-free nail polish, all of which are long lasting. Once you’re ready to try a new look, use Priti NYC soy nail polish remover wipes–each biodegradable sheet can remove approximately two hands worth of polish.
