I don't know about you, but sometimes I just want someone to tell me what works.
I love writing about deep things, but today, I just want to share the practical.
My friend, Deb, told me 10 ago, she is an "80/20" girl. She eats 80% healthy mama, and 20% not-so-perfect. She uses natural products 80% of the time but not the other 20. I have adopted this. I use essential oils, wash my hair with baking soda, eat mostly dairy/gluten/processed-free.
One of my recent finds has been Bend Soap Company's natural deodorant that (shock and awe) ACTUALLY WORKS. I have tried many others that made me smell like an aging hippy. No offense to hippies. Hello 80%! I'm thrilled. Who wants aluminum rolled on their skin daily in all it's cancer causing glory? Not me.
My other new favorite product is Rodan and Fields Hydration Serum. I actually went out of my house without tinted moisturizer on.
For the first time in 30 years.
I even take the stuff camping. I felt like my skin looked so healthy after Hydration Serum, I didn't need it. This product is made with glycerin but it's not wholly natural or organic. So here's my 20%. It's awesome.
