Take care of your skin as you take care of your health!

wpid-green-people-600.jpgHello everybody!

I know i usually write abut fitness, exercise, health and recipes, so this time you can read something different 🙂

If you think about it, fitness and health goes hand in hand, but health is not just what’s inside of out body, but also how we treat it from outside too. If we give out bodied the best fuel, natural and fresh food why should we not do the exact same thing from outside. Everything we put on out body is absorbed, whatever its a shower gel a scrub or a lotion.

The past couple of weeks I was trying out some great products from a UK brand called Green People. Their products contain mostly organic ingredients with no parabens, no alcohol, no synthetic fragrances, no colorants, Their products contain organic apricots, bergamot, mandarin, avocado and green tea. They manufacture face creams, face scrubs, organic toothpaste, sunscreen lotion, organic shampoos and deodorants but also organic eye shadows.

wpid-img_20150731_231243-01.jpegI tried out some of their face products, and i have to tell you I really liked them. The facial fruit scrub, made of organic mandarin and apricots, smells so delicious but still light, it claims to:

  • Removes dead skin cells and impurities for a glowing complexion
  • Softens the skin and retains natural oils
  • Uplifting, light citrus aroma
  • Alcohol-free and skin-balancing
  • Free from marine-damaging plastic microbeads

What I noticed after using it, is a glowing and very soft skin, and this was exactly what I was expecting from a facial scrub. The fragrance is just perfect, not so heavy but still fresh and delicious. If you are interested to try them out, just click on the link Green people.

When it comes about our skin, we should always use the best products existing, as natural as possible.

Have a gorgeous day!
