More and more people are embracing the fact that simple is best, so let’s break it down and look at some natural beauty and body products that you can use efficiently for a few different things whilst also being safe for you, good for the environment (less waste) and your hip pocket.
So yes, you can have your cake and eat it too!
- Argan Oil
I am sure a lot of people are familiar with Argan Oil being great for adding moisture to dry hair but did you know that this super oil can be used for more than just your locks? It is known as a dry oil which means that it absorbs easily, is non-greasy and non-irritating, which makes it a great natural moisturiser.
Skin: Used in high end anti-ageing skin care products, Argan Oil is used as a moisturiser to hydrate and soften skin with its high vitamin A, E and fatty acid content, these help the skin’s cell production giving it a natural boost. If you have dry irritated skin this oil can also soothe and deeply moisturise the skin. Due to its high Fatty Acid properties this oil can also help with the healing process of acne related scarring. You can even pop some onto your lips as a moisturising treatment! Are you loving this oil yet?
Pregnancy: This wonder oil can also be used to prevent stretch marks and also nourish the skin during and after pregnancy. Argan Oil increases the elasticity of skin due to its vitamin E content.
Hand and Nail treatment: Great for brittle nails, dry hands and cracked, hard skin on feet. Argan Oil both moisturises and softens skin, leaving hands and feet supple and soft and nails strong and healthy. We recommend you try Akhal Argan Oil which is pure, certified organic, vegan and ethically sourced – you can’t go wrong with such a raw and beautiful oil.
I cannot talk about this one enough I use this daily as it is my own master multi tasker! Magnesium can help the body with aches and pains, anxiety, sleep and energy levels. See my blog here that explains the benefits of topical magnesium and its importance for optimum health and day to day functioning of the body.
Magnesium Chloride in a spray, bath salts, gel or lotion are very effective and easy ways to get your daily dose! I recommend you try the Amazing Oils Spray which can be applied directly to the affected areas or on the upper limbs for energy, lower limbs to relax and help with a restful night’s sleep. It comes in a 60ml (which I pop into my bag) and a 100ml size. If you are looking for a relaxing way to add magnesium into your daily routine and grab some time out whilst boosting your magnesium levels I highly recommend the Caim and Able Bath Salts and Soak which are all infused with soothing essential oils.
