Earth Day Beauty
Happy Earth Day! Celebrate the day by revitalizing your natural beauty with organic and natural products. Known for her own line of organic hair care, I’m sure Kate Hudson would approve. Since the release of Hudson’s line in 2008, the organic movement has not only taken off in supermarkets, it has also made its mark in drugstores. I’m ecstatic that you can find plenty of non-toxic, cruelty-free, and eco-friendly products that are kind to your body and also to Mother Nature. The choices can be overwhelming, but I’ve helped you narrow down the options with some of our favorite earth-friendly…and body-friendly…beauty aids. Here’s to a greener earth and a more beautiful you!
