Going green has become a theme of the last decade. Whether it’s cars or food, going natural is a top priority and it should be. It’s not only great for the environment (which good lord we need) but they tend to be better for you as well. When you use products that make you feel better and are better for the environment, everyone wins!
I recently had a particularly bitter battle with adult acne and tried everyone product under the sun. My skin became raw, irritated, sometimes flaky and dry. All the harsh chemicals wreaked havoc on my skin. At first I didn’t think I could even afford to turn to all natural products. But I was pleasantly surprised when I found a whole like of drugstore natural beauty products.
I’ve created a round-up of my favorite drugstore all natural beauty products that you absolutely have to try. They are slightly more pricey then the average product you see on the drugstore shelf. But don’t worry, they are still way more affordable then any product you would find at a retail beauty store. And since I am all about budget (you know, so I can spend the extra money on clothes), these products are a MUST try!
