I have been SO excited to bring you today’s post. After years (yes, literally years) of searching for an all natural toothpaste, I finally found one that WORKS. One that leaves your mouth feeling clean and also whitens teeth in the process. Before I introduce you to the fresh breath goodness, let me tell you about my previous search for an all natural toothpaste. It’s been a long one! After trying out many other all natural toothpaste brands that line the aisle at my local health food store, I switched back to my usual toothpaste (unfortunately not an all natural brand) about a year ago. I found that the other all natural brands I tried just weren’t holding up in the whitening department. Taking care of my smile is something that I always make a top priority in my beauty routine! I’ve shared my love of Kopari’s Oil Pullers before as oil pulling with coconut oil is one of the BEST teeth whitening tips I have! Needless to say, Kopari is a brand I absolutely love for natural beauty products.
Can you believe Christmas is only 7 days away?! Where did the time go?? I hope you are having somewhat of a peaceful week amidst all the holiday craziness.
This week I will be sharing some last minute gift ideas for the ladies (or gentlemen) in your life that you still need to shop for. One of my favorite things to give for Christmas is beauty products– surprise surprise!
This post has been a long time coming. As you probably know, I consider myself kind of like a human guinea pig within the realm of beauty. Sometimes I try beauty trends that end up being a fail and sometimes I try things and wonder how I ever lived without them. Today I want to talk to you about microblading, which 1000% falls into the “wonder how I ever lived without it” category.
I hope you had an absolutely wonderful Thanksgiving yesterday. This was the first year that we had both Dylan’s and my family together so it was incredibly special! We started off the day with a Turkey Trot and then cooked, sipped wine, ate, played games and all of that goodness. It was such a blessing of a holiday!
The craziness of all the Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales can be REAL, so today I wanted to keep it simple and focus on skincare sales that are going down! Skincare can be EXPENSIVE so I want to help you guys save in any way I possibly can. I am a firm believer in the power of a good skincare routine. Skincare is something I always splurge on over designer clothing or bags. You only get ONE skin and I am determined to take the best possible care of it that I can.
Fall is in the air! Now that summer has officially come to and end and we are moving towards winter, I want to share some of the things I’ve been doing to give my skin some extra R&R. Towards the end of August, my skin was looking a little tired. During our summer travels, I was in the sun much more than usual! While I always wear sunscreen, I still noticed that my skin had some extra sun damage along my forehead and just had more discoloration than usual. It wasn’t really bothering me while I wore makeup, but was getting on my nerve when I wasn’t. I am all about skincare prevention and care as well as taking care of my skin while I’m young so I figured this was the perfect time to invest in a chemical peel.
Have you ever suffered from skin issues? Unfortunately, most of us have. From acne to eczema, skin issues can do a number on your confidence. I’ve definitely been there! For this reason, I want to talk about something that’s really helped me in the skin department, cutting out dairy and gluten. Before you go rolling your eyes, hear me out because cutting out dairy and gluten has been one of the best things I’ve ever done for my skin.
Happy Thursday! Doesn’t it just feel like summer is in FULL swing these days?? Something about the week after the 4th always has me feeling the happy summer energy! On Monday night we went to listen to some live music with friends and I think that’s what really kicked off this “summer” feeling.
It’s no secret that I’m fan of collagen. If you’ve been reading Love Inside & Out for a while now, you know that my love for collagen runs DEEP! Collagen is something I’ve consistently used for years now and is one of those wellness “trends” that’s absolutely here to stay.
Let’s talk makeup! Specifically, non-toxic makeup (the best kind in my personal opinion). As you might know, my passion for non-toxic products has continued to blossom over the last 6 months. If you haven’t read my previous posts chatting about non-toxic skincare products & why I made the switch to safer products, they can be found here & here. Honestly, after learning about all the crazy chemicals that are PACKED into our personal care products, I haven’t looked back. I mean, how can you learn that products we are willingly using are directly linked to things like cancer and infertility and NOT do anything?! I’ve cleaned up a bunch of my products- think makeup, haircare, skincare, etc. I am genuinely so passionate about bringing to light the fact that there are products out there that not only work so well and make us feel beautiful, but also don’t have tons of nasty crap in them. At this time, I’m not fully nontoxic but definitely have made huge shifts in switching over to many safer products! It all about awareness & mindfulness in regards to what we put on and in our bodies so we can make an educated decision. You know?
