It seems you can't walk into a beauty boutique nowadays without passing a quartz-infused cream or wildflower recycled-glass jar. So we asked Emma Mildon aka the Spiritual PA, to weigh in on her soulful skin care. Whether that means utilizing small-scale and local production, or collaborating with artisan cooperatives in the developing world, she says beauty companies are making an impact. "Brands are focusing on a holistic approach that takes into account the entire life cycle of an ingredient, from its carbon footprint to the livelihood of the workers who made it." Looking and doing good has never felt, or been better.
Tried and tested skin care with soul connected to your gut, emotions, hormones, and diet is how we're doing beauty these days! So let's take a holistic look at some of the eco-beauty and skin care products you might need in your conscious life. My product picks are sure to vibe with every skin type; when the cells' metaphorical batteries are working better, the skin looks better. What do you have to lose?
Trilogy Hydrating Mist Toner
Trilogy's little number is a great travel companion, instantly revitalizing your skin with heavenly smelling rose, geranium, and lavender essential oils. Awakening and rehydrating your skin with one cooling and uplifting spray? Mandatory! Plus, it's made from recycled packaging, is non-GMO, supports ethical trade, stands against animal testing AND is a certified natural cosmetic—score! ($24.95)
Dr. Bronner's Fair Trade & Organic Castile Liquid Soap
The Beauty Chef Collagen Inner Beauty Boost
Think of this as tonic for your skin care soul. A daily shot of collagen in a blend of certified organic maqui berry, acai, papaya, blueberry, goji-berry and pomegranate powders that you simply add to a glass of water. Not only does it taste delish, but the natural collagen supports healthy skin, hair, and nail growth. I found this product post facial at the Tonic Room and have been hooked ever since! ($39.95)
Linden Leaves Miraculous Facial Oil
I think this skin care range and I are soul mates. Seriously. I'm talking products that are made using quality organic and natural ingredients, fruit and flower oils, all infused with unique aromatherapy blends. My personal seal of approval goes to the Miraculous Facial Oil with organic white tea and organic rosehip oil; trust me, your skin will eat that natural goodness right up. Total goddess juice. ($49.88)
Ila Spa Bath Salts For Inner Peace
May Lindstorm The Problem Solver
Problem skin? Then leave it to this correcting masque rightfully named the Problem Solver. A powder that transforms into a antioxidant-rich raw cacao, bamboo, charcoal, salt and spice mask will leave your pores rejoicing. Put it this way: This masque graduates first in its organic class as an overachieving superstar in the skin care class of 2016. Eco-beauty-dictorian! ($90)
