To celebrate Earth Month, this article is the first in a series of six eco-friendly pieces that will be running in BettyConfidential.

Sure, you recycle the newspaper and don’t leave your computer running all night long, but you can go one step further in helping the environment by using eco-friendly skincare products that will beautify you naturally without hurting the planet. Going green never looked so good. Even celebs like Gisele Bundchen are getting into the act!

1. Exfoliant

Zia exfoliant

Zia Natural Skincare Skin Basics Bamboo Exfoliant ($20.79, drugstore.com). This organic exfoliant gently removes dead skin cells with bamboo extract, soybean oil, and rice bran oil, and has yucca extra to add hydration. The result? Baby smooth skin, naturally. What’s more, Zia’s packaging is created with windmill power and printed with soy ink. 

2. Eye Cream

Jason Ester-C Eye cream

Jason Ester-C Ultra-C Eye Lift ($16.37, amazon.com). Wake up dull, tired-looking peepers with age-fighting vitamins C and E, aloe vera gel, and rosehips to smooth fine lines and hydrate the delicate skin around your eyes.

3. Anti- Aging Moisturizer

Aubrey Organics moisturizer

Aubrey Organics Honeysuckle CoQ10 Replenishing Moisturizing Lotion ($12.95, aubrey-organics.com).

This moisturizer also contains organic aloe vera and jojoba oil for smooth skin.

4.  Mask

Sejaa mud mask

Sejaa Mud Mask ($56, sejaa.com). While we can’t promise that you’ll wake up looking like Gisele Bundchen, her 100 percent natural skincare line’s mud mask will help detox your skin using natural clay to draw out impurities and has glycerin to leave skin supple and moisturized. The products are also manufactured using renewable energy and packed in recycled materials.

  1. Burts Bee’s has the best stuff. The lip balms are fantastic. I love that they don’t test on animals and they are definitely earth friendly. One thing I discovered at Whole Foods and it’s at Walgreens as well. It’s really nice and organic. It’s called Avalon Organics Skin Nourishing antioxidant intensive Vitamin C sun aging defense Vitality Serum, and then the Avalon Organics Vitamin C Rejuvinating oil-free moisturizer. Wow, smells fantastic and so smooth and silky. All vegetarian ingredients, no animals testing and Paraben free. It smells like you’re putting oranges on your face. The serum alone is great! The moisturizer is really nice. And of course the best part is it’s earth friendly and ORGANIC. Since I’m a vegetarian, that means a great deal. You must try it. I believe for both products it cost a total of $38.00. That’s not bad considering how much even the Olay Rx costs! I believe that is about $75.00 or higher for the kit from Walgreens. I love Walgreens. So many fun products to try out. Burts Bees is there as well. Organic products, beauty and food, will hopefully go down in prices because they are very expensive at Whole Foods. I could spend the day at Whole Foods and feel like I was at Disney World. They have so many great things, but their downfall is it’s waaayyy too expensive. A great healthy grocery is Trader Joes and the prices are much better and that’s where I shop for my organic food. They have a great selection, not as much as Whole Foods, but they’ve still got wonderful products!! Love the place. I love that they sell flowers and plants as well because I’m a huge lover of the outdoors and gardens, plants, you name it. Great place!! When Whole Foods has a sale, that’s when I run over there!
