More Than One Direction: What Makes Us Beautiful?

The beauty of this world can be seen in so many different ways. It can be seen under so many different lights and so many different perspectives. Whether we consider this earth on a microscopic level or on a macroscopic scale, the end result is that nature is an extraordinary blanket that covers the surface of this planet, but extends far enough to impact the depths of our souls.

But what about when we consider our own beauty regimes? Should our personal beauty products not reflect the beauty of this earth?  Should the way we care for ourselves not reflect our pride and appreciation for this world?

1.       “You light up my world like nobody else”

Face washes can do wonders for brightening up our skin. They can clear up pores and wipe away oil like a magic eraser.  But finding a wash that is good for our skin AND that is environmentally safe can be quite a challenge (especially with the gamut of products that are currently available on the market). 

Zia Natural Skincare Skin Basics Bamboo Exfoliant—this organic exfoliant contains bamboo extract, soybean oil, rice bran oil, and yucca extract (for hydration). It works to gently remove dead skin cells leaving your skin bright, baby skin soft, and fresh.  What's more, Zia's packaging is created with windmill power and printed with soy ink.    

2.       “The way that you flip you hair gets me overwhelmed”

Nana Essence shampoo and conditioner mask is a certified biodegradable and certified organic product that does not contain any concentrates, chemical preservatives, is alcohol free, and sprinkled with natural fragrances. It is not tested on animals is cruelty free.

Void of superfluous scent or dyes, this shampoo is said to have a wholesome, earthy character that gathers to a hearty, full lather and rinsing out completely. Hair is left to feel full and never dull or stripped.

3.       “That’s what makes you beautiful”

Despite all these beauty products that are out there on the market, should everyone not feel beautiful from the inside out? Is this not the true reflection of natural beauty? So, find the product that works best for you, the product that works best for your body. 

Despite all these products that make your skin glow and your hair shine, if they are not helpful to the state of the earth, then perhaps we should consider other options.  

After all, making a minimum impact on the planet while living a healthy, happy life is what makes one truly beautiful.
