This week, we caught up with one of my favorite natural beauties, made a pretty DIY cheek stain, read a few scary studies about synthetics in cosmetics and discovered another bee-lovely favorite brand, Melvita. I’m heading to the mountains in western North Carolina this weekend and hoping to discover some fun new shops or products to share with you. Here’s what I’ve been reading+enjoying elsewhere this week (the image above is from illustrator Samantha Hahn’s new solo show, A Thousand Ships):
- The Ecologist posted a great list of beauty baddies from A to Z.
- Alexandra at No More Dirty Looks shared her secrets for recovering when you’ve created a monster on your face. (Been there!)
- I realize this isn’t traditionally natural beauty-related, but over at Poppytalk they shared a recipe for the most amazing looking glitter playdough…and I think I must try it. Playdough is good for stress relief, right? And stress relief is good for your skin. So there! Playdough=Natural beauty.
- Paige Padgett shared why it’s a good idea to avoid perfume/parfum–and her favorite yummy-smelling products.
