My 3 Must-Have Natural Beauty Products

lavenderWe can easily be seduced by promises of longer lashes, less wrinkles and smoother skin, and then end up with drawers full of useless stuff!

The three products below are my favorite natural beauty products. They are tried and true, and some may even sound “old school,” but they work even without a movie star endorsement. They have multiple purposes, are inexpensive, and are great for your skin.

Coconut Oil: The current darling of the health food industry, coconut oil does it all. Not only can you cook with it, it can soften skin too. For some it may be too rich to use as a facial moisturizer, but it is an ideal body moisturizer. Massage it into parched winter skin, such as legs after shaving, or dry elbows.

New Skin Care Line: Skincando

I am a sucker for great ingredients and even more of a sucker for a great story. Skincando has both, plus it is made with all natural ingredients and no harsh chemicals.

Sara Damelio developed Combat-Ready Balm after struggling with acne for years. On her quest for a product to help her problem, she found that many “beauty” products contained toxic substances, including petroleum by-products and parabens. Combat Ready Balm is free of all these harsh chemicals and has helped many who suffer not only from dry skin, but eczema, sunburn, insect bites, diaper rash and blisters.

Operation Sand Flea is a program that Sara started because the feedback she received from our US troops overseas was this: Combat Ready Balm is the only cream that our soldiers have used that calms and soothes their incessant sand flea bites, sunburn and dry skin. So Sara has been donating Combat-Ready care packages to our US troops overseas for over 5 years and continues to do so.

Her line has expanded to include a lip balm, as well as Combat Ready Balm for Kids, which is great as a diaper rash cream.

Skincando also has a more luxurious line for those that are more concerned with lines and wrinkles. The Miracle Cream is a super-hydrating moisturizer that contains vitamins A and E, organic rose geranium oil and essential fatty acids, promising to hydrate the skin and diminish the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and uneven skin tone. Skincando Eye Balm contains organic white tea and chamomile essential oil to leave the eye area refreshed and luminous. These two products are made to order, so you have the freshest and the highest quality product.
