Going natural with your skincare is a lot easier than it seems. A lot of products you love likely already have green ingredients! Here are some of our favorite natural products:
LovelySkin LUXE Microdermabrasion Polish with Triple Sphere Technology
Gently and effectively exfoliate the skin with diatomaceous spheres, or fossilized algae, which occur naturally in the environment. This power-packed polish uses orange extract to improve microcirculation and reduce inflammation, shea butter to protect and nourish, and caper floral bud extract to soothe and calm skin.
About the Brand: In addition to recyclable shipping containers, LovelySkin has also recently reformed its packing procedures to utilize recyclable packing paper. We are always taking steps to better ourselves and the environment, and this LUXE formula is no different–it was formulated without plastic microbeads and contains only biodegradable ingredients.
