I am big advocate of using natural, toxin-free (and even organic when possible) beauty care products for me and family. With more studies coming out every day on the shockingly harmful effects of the chemicals, preservatives, lab fabricated fragrances and cheaper ‘natural’ alternatives have on the functioning of organs of our body , I am more adamant than ever that those chemically loaded products from the brands that we all have grown up with and come to love (Johnson&Johnsons, Dove, Aveda and yes even Chanel )… no longer have a place in my home!
From the latest beauty magazines to your fitness buff neighbor living next door, if you haven’t heard about detoxing then you must have been hiding under a rock for the last ten years somewhere in Kalamazoo. It can seem trendy, exciting yet unnervingly daunting all at the same time…and the big question is, “HOW exactly do I do a detox?”
It’s that time! Summer has arrived with a bang and we are all anxiously packing our bags to go visit loved ones, explore an exciting new destination or just simply chill out in a home away from home. I was definitely one of those ‘over packers’ once upon a time, like a total diva I would literally take almost everything I owned even for a short weekend trip! After some enlightened wisdom and three kids later, I’ve learned to pack more efficiently and take the essentials along with me. Plus we need to leave room for shopping, right?
