Drink Up, Skin!

Seems like fashion isn’t the only field joining the eco-friendly movement, beauty is also left and right with claims of being organic. The trouble is, upon further inspection , I usually find myself doubting the authenticity of these supposedly environmentally sound concoctions.

Just because there’s an ingredient that’s natural doesn’t mean the product is organic. You have to consider the other ingredients found in the product. This is what Karen Behnke discovered when she was on the look out for healthy, personal care products during her first pregnancy.

This led to the birth of the beauty brand Juice Beauty, its products of which have over 100 USDA certified organic powerful ingredients into a 100 percent certified organic juice base. Hence, the name “juice.” This is unlike its counterparts that dilute their products’ organic content.

To add to this, Juice Beauty strives to use only the most natural organic ingredients and supports organic farming, solar manufacturing, and the recycled paper business. Plus, all of its formulations are without parabens, petroleum, propylene or butylenes, glycol, sodium lauryl sulfates, pesticides, phthalates, artificial dyes or synthetic fragrances.

Before you head out to Beauty Bar outlets, you might want to check out what’s on my shopping list:

Green Apple Peel, P2,450, is the bestseller to date. It recently received an award for its patent, and has been featured extensively in media. All these got me curious to try this facial cream that promises facial spa results.

Don’t you just hate pimple scars? The Blemish Clearing Serum, P1,675, is composed of a powerful hydroxyl-acid complex that works on lightening dark spots.

This three-step bodycare kit is a great set to have. Maintain smooth and glowing skin with the Green Apple Body Brilliance collection, P3,200, with its exfoliator, cleanser, and moisturizer.

Exposure to pollutants and being in an air-conditioned room all day can cause our skin to dry and lose its radiance. Having a Hydrating Mist, P1,375, would help me battle against lackluster skin with nutrients such as rosehip and grapeseed oils.

*Juice is available in most Beauty Bar outlets.

Jane is it safe to use hydroxyl-acid when you are pregnant? I got tons of pimple and pimple marks already due to pregnancy and my doctor won't allow me to have it pricked by the derma for now and wait till I give birth, your suggestions of beauty product is very inviting... :)

Yah, Kookie! Don't you just hate those dark pimple scars/marks? :) I haven't tried this though, will let you know if it works. But yes, we're at the age when we need to take good care of our skin hehe... :) Will be posting another beauty news within the week, watch out for that :)

Hey Ems! I was pretty patient when I was pregnant, and played it safe. I didn't apply anything on my face all throughout, even when I was breastfeeding. I did my research on the use of hydroxyl-acid, the Alpha type is good, but the Beta type isn't recommended. So, for this product, I'm not sure if this is since it says hydroxyl complex. But then again, these products were created by the owner for her own use when she was pregnant... Will ask Beauty Bar for their recommendations :)
