Safe And Natural Essentials For The Family

It’s Back To School time! My son’s first day back was last Thursday! Every year, I always prepare our household with safe, natural, eco-friendly cleaning and lifestyle products. At the first sign of either of us getting sick, I use an oil diffuser and essential oils which seems to help tremendously. We gathered a few safe and natural essentials for the family to keep on hand!

How do you prepare for Back To School? It seems parents have to buy new clothes and school supplies each year. This year, I didn’t have to buy new clothes for him right away. I had just purchased clothing for him a few months before summer started, so his clothes will do for the next few months. I may have to buy new pants for him since he seems to have grown so much! I did have to buy a new backpack since one of the straps on his old backpack was wearing down.

Repair and Protect Hair and Skin from the Harsh Summer Weather

One of my lease favorite seasons is summer. I live in the South and it’s always 100+ degrees, even late into October. The heat damages my skin and leaves me a sweaty mess. This does not bode well for my naturally oily skin.

The application and re-application of sunscreen and make up leaves my skin clogged and looking rough. The scorching sun usually leaves me with redness and burns. Because of this, I am super careful with the products that I apply to my skin.

Detox and Correct Skin after Harmful UV Rays and Chemicals

Clear Your Skin – Tox-Block & Cleanse Supplement detoxes the liver which, in turn, detoxes chemicals from the skin and blood stream. Supplements are easy to swallow and do not have a weird taste. When taken twice per day, skin improves by reducing redness and inflammation.

-Milk thistle – supports the liver in its hard work of processing chemicals and toxins
-Curcumin – a bioactive component of turmeric, with anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties to offset stress, soothe and calm
-N-Acetyl-Cysteine (NAC) – counters toxins and inflammation
-Alpha-Lipoic Acid – helps prevent cell damage and restore levels of vitamins E and C

Clear Your Skin – Decongest Fruit Enzyme Creme Mask After a long day of sweat and make-up running down my face, I like to give my pores a nice deep clean without striping my face and causing damages. The cream is nice and provides cooling relief in the dead of summer.

-Organic Aloe Leaf Juice – soothes irritation and inflammation, taking on the two main causes of skin redness
-Organic Pineapple Enzymes – gently sweep away dead skin cells to smooth texture, clear pores, and add glowOrganic
-Papaya Enzymes – reduce redness and spotchiness, exfoliate, tone, and help cool blemishes

Clear Your Skin – Resurfacing 1% Retinol Serum I use this at night to repair my cells after hours of sun exposure. It leaves no greasy feel and is perfect for recharging skin at the end of a long day.

-Retinol – supports skin elasticity and renewal, helps address the look of scars, fine lines and wrinkles
-Calendula – speed healing of minor blemishes, bring calm and balance bacteria
-Organic Aloe Leaf Juice – soothes irritation and inflammation, taking on the two main causes of skin redness
