Today, I am so excited to feature my very first guest blogger here on French Bliss Me, the lovely and talented Jenn Baxter from Live a F.a.s.t. Life. Jenn is going to be taking over the blog to talk non-toxic summer necessities, so grab a cup of coffee and get ready to learn about everything you need to prep for summer!
Summer is almost here (in the U.S. of A) and that means it’s almost time for all of the pleasures that come along with warmer weather… trips to the beach, the pool, wine festivals, outdoor concerts, hiking, biking and a host of other outdoor festivities. It’s time to bid adieu to the gloom and doom of the winter and stretch your legs under the warmth of the sun.
But before you go running out that door, don’t forget to stock up on your summer essentials – the non-toxic way!
Staying healthy and beautiful in the summertime does NOT mean you have to subject yourself to the chemicals and toxins found in “traditional” beauty products. There are plenty of great products that will keep you looking and feeling your best this summer, without putting your health in danger with secret, bad-for- you ingredients.
Here are a few of this season’s non-toxic necessities:
1. Protect Stick Sunscreen from Beautycounter – $18 USD
Okay, first I have to warn you… you are going to see the name Beautycounter a lot here. And no, it’s not because I sell it or get a commission to promote them. It’s simply because I LOVE their products so much. They’re great quality AND they are dedicated to providing products that are safe and free from toxins. In fact, they have banned over 1,500 ingredients that are harmful and typically found in “traditional” products!
This little gem is great because it’s tiny enough to throw in your beach bag or even your purse and is easy to apply since it’s in stick form. It goes on smoothly and doesn’t leave you feeling greasy, and it’s water resistant for up to 80 minutes! And of course, most importantly, it works. Even for us ghostly white gals!
