For centuries we have been trying to look younger, more youthful, and maintaining a reasonably healthy and active lifestyle. With today’s modern advances, we are finding new and improved methods that are not only healthier but more effective.
The ancient Egyptians would crush natural plants and herbs in stone bowls and vessels, infuse them with topical, or add it into their heated drinks and the results seem to speak for themselves. We rarely see an aged or elderly Egyptian, do we? They had understood back then the essential need for using organic ingredients to achieve the best results, and we are taking a page out of their books to do the same.
Nature in a bottle.
We have all seen the boutiques and organic stalls popping up more and more in malls and on walking streets selling herbal products, or ingredients made from natural elements but are usually too hesitant to go in for fear of the unknown. But this is becoming less frequent and people’s curiosity is getting the better of them, and rightly so.
The ancient ancestors didn’t have the technology that we have today and they used what they had and the only thing they knew, nature, and she didn’t disappoint. Fruits, oils, and plants extracts were discovered and used still to this day, so why are we so quick to run out and buy the mass-produced products we see lining the supermarket shelves?
Well for starters it is due to convenience, but in hindsight, are the products claiming to be natural and bio-friendly authentic? Or are we falling prey to clever advertising and flashy packaging? How often do we stop to read the packaging labels on the items we buy? Take a quick look here https://www.nytimes.com/guides/well/how-to-read-a-food-label to be one step ahead of the game when it comes to understanding just what you’re purchasing.
Ideally, you want to do some form of homework and research into what makes a product natural and organic, where are ingredients sourced from, are the companies using ethical extraction processes? These will help you make more calculated decisions and consider alternatives to the products you have become accustomed to.
Not just for food.
Natural ingredients are not limited to food products, big corporations are investing millions into products that are not only environmentally friendly but good for the body.
If we take a look in our medical cabinets or better yet in our make-up bags, do you notice everything has one common factor, chemicals? Some will have more than others, certain labels will have unpronounceable ingredient names, and do we want to be putting these toxins into our bodies or onto our face and skin?
We need to be more educated, more aware of what we are purchasing, and make better, healthier choices. Long gone are the days of ‘caked-on’ make-up looks (see what is meant by that if you click here), it is more about looking your natural self, effortless, and chic all rolled into one. And what better way to do that than with health ingredient-filled beauty products?
Eating healthy is one piece of the puzzle, now it is time to focus on the external and make a change for the better, not only will you look healthier but you will feel better with more confidence.
Find your natural self.
Now that you have decided to detox your makeup bag of products that are either not being used but taking up space, have been your go-to item since you left high school, and purchases you bought simply because they were on special. We can begin to focus on what really matters – taking it back to our roots. Literally.
Nature has been a sustainable resource for ingredients and products for centuries, and lending its hand to the beauty world is no different, with the exception that we now have the technology to produce it quicker and manufacture it faster. A cannabis plant compound that has done just that goes by the name of Cannabidiol, or also known as CBD.
It has an endless list of health positives, is highly versatile which is great for a large variety of products, and has an ease of use that makes it hard to say no to. Opting for a younger-looking you is a step in the right direction, and to go that extra bit further, then considering CBD beauty products could be the answer you have been looking for.
The cannabis plant that’s grown naturally across the globe, its humble leaf, flower, and all the plant components will give you that added self-confidence we could all use from time to time, and because it comes in a variety of versions there is something for everyone.
The right fit.
Think about your lifestyle, your schedule, and based on those consider which CBD item would suit you best. There are capsules to take with your morning coffee as you head out the door, topical and creams to lather into your skin as you step out of a hot shower, or you might want to indulge in a CBD-infused bath bomb where the fizz surrounds and envelopes you like a welcoming hug.
The main objective is that you have chosen to live a cleaner, more quality lifestyle. If it means simply changing a few beauty items that –let’s be honest have had their time- then the future will be one to look forward to while looking better than ever. Win-win.
