Roundup: Green Tea for Beautiful Skin

Green tea has long been touted for its health benefits: it can help fight cancer and heart disease, lower cholesterol, burn fat, and prevent diabetes and stroke. But it’s also a powerful beauty ingredient, with more antioxidants than other typical sources (Vitamins A, C, and E). The polyphenol in green tea, ECGC, has been proven to help rejuvenate and heal skin, fight inflammation, heal acne, and more. So it’s no surprise that it’s landing on cosmetics ingredients lists more frequently (sometimes listed as “camellia sinensis”). Here’s a selection of products that contain the ancient ingredient. Will you add some green tea to your beauty routine? —Aleigh

Clockwise, from left: John Masters Green Tea & Rose Hydrating Face Serum ($24), Suki Intensive Nourishing Cream with Brightening Complex($60.95), Pangea Japanese Matcha Tea with Acai and Goji Berry Facial Mask ($40), Kimberly Sayer Ultra Light Facial Moisturizer ($32)

Link Love Friday: Alicia!

This week I’ve added a few new products to my covet list. Remember a few weeks ago when I interviewed Karen Behnke of Juice Beauty? At the end of the interview, she mentioned that Juice Beauty would be launching a new celebrity collaboration on Earth Day. Well, the collection is here, and the celebrity is Alicia Silverstone. (And I have my eye on the Irresistible Glow Facial Highlighter…)

Here’s what else I’m reading+enjoying this week:

Happy Friday!

The Beauty of Spring Flower Power

Evidence of spring is all around in Charlotte—my daffodils have been blooming for weeks! But all of those newly-blooming flowers are so much more powerful than just eye candy. They’ve also been distilled into ingredients for your skincare products. Here’s a breakdown of the flowers that end up in your natural cosmetics…and where you can find them.

Honeysuckle. Widely used for its antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties, honeysuckle heals blemishes and soothes skin, but it also smells great and works as a natural preservative. Find it in: John Masters Evening Primrose Shampoo ($16), Kimberly Sayer Contouring & Slimming Body Lotion ($36)

Marigold. Also known as calendula, marigold has healing, soothing properties, and it’s a great addition to a gentle cleanser. Find it in: Pangea Organics Egyptian Calendula and Blood Orange Cleanser ($28), Pai Comfrey & Calendula Calming Body Cream ($38)

Geranium. With its invigorating freshness, geranium helps boost circulation and improve skin’s elasticity. Find it in: Kahina Giving Beauty Antioxidant Mask ($62), Patyka Absolis Geranium Body Cream ($60)

Evening Primrose. Calming and moisturizing, evening primrose is a favorite for its fatty acids, which encourage cell renewal and help prevent aging. Find it in: Nordic Naturals Omega Woman Evening Primrose Blend ($24.95), Acure Organics Radical Age Reversal Cream ($29.99)

Hibiscus. The huge flowers of the hibiscus are gorgeous (and a true sign of warmer weather), but their essential oils also make a great moisturizer and help maintain a healthy scalp. Find it in: Suki Eye Lift Cellular Renewal Cream ($60.95), Pure & True Passion Fruit & Hibiscus Masque & Scrub ($38)

Linden Blossom. The linden flower’s delicate blooms are great skin soothers and make for soft, touchable skin. Find it in: ilike Linden & Marigold Rejuvenating Treatment ($64), Tata Harper Rebuilding Moisturizer ($100)

Happy almost spring! —Aleigh

Tween-friendly natural beauty

A while back, Heidi left a comment on this post asking for some middle schooler-friendly natural beauty brands. I made a few suggestions then, but I have to admit that her question has been weighing on me ever since. Young bodies are more sensitive to the ingredients in the products they use, so to me it’s especially important to focus on cosmetics that are pure and natural (…and affordable). Packaging is key—if a product isn’t fun and colorful, it’ll get tossed aside in favor of something that is. Here are a few tips, along with a few tween-friendly brands to try.

Lips. I have always loved lip gloss, even as a young girl, and I think gloss is an easy, age-appropriate way to introduce your daughter to cosmetics. Two to try: Juice Beauty SPF 8 Moisturizers and Alima Pure Nourishing Lipbalm.

Deodorant. Chances are your tween is going to need this stuff! Two to try: Florere makes a natural deodorant in an easy-to-use stick, and lots of natural beauties swear by this Soapwalla Kitchen Deodorant Cream.

Blemish control. In middle school, a single pimple could ruin my entire week. (And frankly, those pesky blemishes can still ruin my week!) That means effective acne relief is a must for some tweens. Two to try: The delicious-smelling Chocolicious facial masque from Una Biologicals (make it an at-home spa day!) and the Suki Jumpstart Balancing Kit.

Nails. Girls of all ages love painted nails. Am I right? Luckily, more and more polish is leaving out the three nastiest ingredients you’ll typically find in polish: DBP, formaldehyde and toluene. Two to try: Zoya has more than 300 colors to choose from and Butter London has all of the trendiest shades.

Hair. Shampoo and conditioner are some of the biggest offenders when it comes to icky ingredients, in my opinion. Maybe you can talk your tween into trying an apple cider vinegar rinse (fodder for a science experiment, perhaps?), but if not, there are a ton of great-smelling hair products out there. Two to try: Acure Organics Lemongrass + Argan Stem Cell Shampoo and Conditioner, and Aubrey Organics Honeysuckle Rose Shampoo.  (Bonus recommendation: Lulu Organics Lavender Clary Sage Hair Powder for non-shampoo days.) 

What was the first product you fell in love with? —Aleigh
