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