As we head into 2018, you will probably set about making some New Year’s resolutions. At SkinDeep Naturals we want to encourage you to look at living more cleanly in 2018. This can mean different things for different people.
Maybe you have never been very conscious of the food you buy, the products you put on your skin, or the clothes you wear. Maybe you are very conscious of some of these things but not others. Or perhaps you are very aware of each of these things. Regardless, we want to give you some ideas for New Year’s resolutions that will lead to a healthier lifestyle for you and your family.
Food: You may not be able to shop all organic, non-GMO, and free range. But looking at your labels and making some conscious decisions about the food you eat is a great place to start. Consider joining a produce co-op like Bountiful Baskets if there is one near you. If you eat meat, buying a half or quarter of a cow is a great way to make sure you are eating meat all year that you know came from a good source at a reasonable price too.
Cosmetics/ Skin Care: If you are shopping at SkinDeep Naturals, you are probably already someone who is conscious about using natural skin care products. When you get your products from us, you know they are free from harmful parabens, fragrances, and coloring. But if you are shopping for items at the drug store, check your labels. Choose options that say “paraben free”, “fragrance free” and so on.
Clothing: Clothing is a tough one for many people because of the expense. But adding more organic cotton clothing to your wardrobe is always a good idea. If you want to learn more about organic cotton, check out this article. Another more affordable option to reduce your environmental footprint (although it doesn’t address allergy issues) is shopping at consignment shops.
We understand that we can’t each do all of these things overnight. But consider taking a few small steps towards some of these cleaner ways of living as you plot out your resolutions this year. For more information on Northern Colorado natural skin care, contact us today at SkinDeep Naturals.
